I had planned this evening to go running after tidying up the kitchen following dinner, then having Jack help me put up some ceiling planks in the computer room before sending the kids to bed and unwinding while watching a show or two.

A co-worker of Jack’s lives on the canal and in his free time enjoys giving gondola rides up and down the mile and a half canal while warbling classic Italian tunes and spouting all kinds of trivia–everything from facts about the gondola we were riding in, housing on the canal, the USS Indianapolis, to the canal itself.

The ride was leisurely and enjoyable, kind of like a canoe trip, except I didn’t have to do the work or the singing AND we didn’t have to hop a flight to Italy to ride a gondola.
