April 24, 1965
Dear Mother–We are still touring Italy but we had to park the car and take a boat when we got here. Spent Easter with Evo’s mother and then took off again in another direction. Having fun. –Love, Lois + Evo
How can you visit Venice and say nothing more about it than that you had to park the car and take a boat? Umm, what about the palaces? gondolas? Doge’s Palace or Rialto Bridge, to say the least? or the tiny, labyrinthine streets, lounging cats, afternoon ombra, fish market, cicchetti, bridges bridges bridges, the sun reflecting off the water into your dazzled eyes? Come on, Lois, you can do better than this!
Btw, what were you doing on April 24, 1965? That was probably the week I was conceived. And what are you doing today, April 24, 2020? Are you in Venice being dazzled?
