Will is sorry to hear of Docandie's negative experiences on the campaign trail. Will has heard that this election is particularly polarised and hostile on both sides. :( Sadly, politics is getting grumpier everywhere.

Will loves VW vans, a surprising number of which are still running in Europe. However, Will doesn't love them enough to want to drive one. Will is too used to modern car comfort. ;)

The pumpkin pie looks yummy. Will looks at the calendar. Yup, it is really that close to Hallowe'en. :shock:

Will has a few pictures - OK, a lot of pictures :oops: - of Venice, but boardies will be relieved to know he is not posting them all. Here are a few of boats doing things that would normally have a wheeled vehicle doing them anywhere but Venice:

Fruit shop boat

Laundry boat

Drinks boat

Delivery boat

Builder boat

Aunty also looks the look of Docandie's pumpkin pie and she is sure it would be delicious!

While Aunty very much enjoyed Will's boat tour of Venice, she thinks she spots a dial phone on the builder boat. Given it's not very mobile technology she wonders if the phone has a very long lead for running up and down the canals :think:

Will looks at the builder boat. That is indeed a dial phone. The thing next to it appears to be a pot plant. Will wonders if these were random things the builders took out of the house before they started working. Still seems a strange place to put them. :think:

Chris is right on. Nothing in Venice is cheap, but in St Marks square things are twice as not cheap as in the rest of Venice. :roll:

Chillicamper is loving the pictures of the boats. Chillicamper has been told on a number of occassions that his wife would love to go to venice. However, what chillicamper hears is - 'let's go camping in the VW' which is nearly the same ;) :lol: .

Chillicamper reckons Will should get an old VW - they are comfortable - they just don't have power steering, or heated windscreens, or ABS or airbags or much heating..........but they do put a smile on your face. :D

Chillicamper has a sticker for his van that says "you may be faster than me, but I have beer in the fridge" :lol:

Chillicamper is now very hungry after seeing the pumpkin pie and will have to eat a pile of the chokkits instead.

Toothy calls in to check on chokkit supplies and gives them a much needed top up. :D

She sends hugs to Docandie. The election visits sound unpleasant and some people could do with a good dose of courtesy. Toothy's mum was good at courtesy, whoever you were, and Toothy tries to live by those standards as far as she can, although she recognises that her fuse is a bit shorter than her mum's was. :roll:

Will and Chilli speak the truth when it comes to St Marks Square being a teensy bit pricier than Harrods, but withouth the green logo'd bag. Or however you spell logo'd...logoed... Ahem. Moving on... :roll:

Mr Totty also added to the list that VWs don't float either... Well, not the ones we've seen. ;)

Anyhoo...Toothy is feeling all domestic this weekend as she's finally got round to making her Christmas pudding and mincemeat batches and everything is acookin'. Once it's all cooled down, Toothy will put the pudding and jars of mincemeat in a cool cupboard to allow the alcoholic content to do its stuff, ready for the festivities in a couple of months' time. Yikes! A couple of months! Time to get going on the present buying... :shock:

The Juleses cleaned windows yesterday. Doesn't sound impressive? The Juleses have a conservatory with 11 big windows, 10 small windows, two glass doors and a glass roof. And it was DIRTY!
Today they're going to see parents-o-J for this year's last barbecue (probably), so Jules doesn't take any choccits now since she'll need all her tummy space later in the day. :roll:

Chilli is very impressed at Toothy's Christmas preparations. Chilli has started buying a few pressies to spread the cost, but has not yet thought about any Christmas food.

Chilli has decided not to take his camper anywhere near deep water :shock: He has enough to do keping it on the road without giving it further excuses to rust! :lol:

Chilli is also very impressed with the Juleses window cleaning marathon :clap: . Chilli is hungry now with the talk of BBQs so dives in to the replenished pile of chokkits. :lol:

Chilli has a sore neck today - caused by a particularly vicious sneeze yesterday :roll: Chilli then thought that planting 100 bulbs in the garden and topping out the cherry tree would help 'loosen the knots' in the muscles a bit. Chilli may have been wrong in this assumption :roll: :lol:

After all the tiring talk of preparing puddings, topping out cherry trees and cleaning windows Aunty settles down to rest and work on ensuring that the chokkit supplies are duly depleted again :D Just so Toothy comes back again mind ;)

Julie likes the pic of the Builders... boat.

Chocolate and workmen, she thinks that's a good combo.

Will hadn't specifically posted pictures of workmen for the delectation of the lady boardies, but is happy to have been of service. ;)

Will helps himself to some pralines. :drool:

Majomull enjoys the nice pics of Venice, while he eats a pumpkin bagel and sips a cup of Earl Grey.

Will attaches a rope to the 3PT and hauls it up onto page 1 using a block and tackle.

Will points out that he said "block and tackle" and not "bloke and tackle" to avoid any unnecessary disappointment to the ladies. :P
