Romeo's house

The brick house, that looks like a little fortress, dates back to the 14th century and, according to tradition, is where Romeo lived.  Many people, all year round, stop here to take a photo of this building, today it was my turn!

No matter who lived there, it is especially marvelous for a Californian to see a habitation in continuous use for so many generations.

Wow what a great building and the history behind it is even better.

I can only apologise for cutting and pasting this comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise. I have only one pair of hands and the magical elves that I have working for me are a bunch of lazy good-for-nothings. All they do is sit around smoking, playing cards and throwing rocks at the reindeer!

Anyway, from myself, Henry and Ezra, have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus and a happy New Year!

I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, and may your stocking be stuffed full of lots of tasty treats and not coal!
