    South of Venice, surely, 's all I meant. Strange, though—geography. Do Floridians think of themselves as Southerners? Hmm.

    Yo Joe,<br /><br />How dare you characterize Rome as &quot;the South&quot;! My landlord would have a heart attack. Signore Pasquale Nestico is from Calabria and doesn&#39;t even think of Naples as the South. Similarly, people in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam think of that as the real South, not bullshit Saigon!

    Linh, I puzzled over &quot;eeoo&quot; because of the double &quot;o&quot;, which I took to mean an &quot;ooh&quot; sound—and I always thought &quot;io&quot; was pronounced &quot;ee<i>oh</i>&quot;. So I didn&#39;t think it could mean &quot;I&quot;. Thanks to you and the devilish miracle of Google, though, which led me to <a href="http://books.google.com/books?id=AEEhaJR6R3EC&amp;pg=PA214&amp;lpg=

    Yo Joe,<br /><br />&quot;eeoo&quot; is probably &quot;io&quot; or &quot;I,&quot; so the guy was just saying I this, I that into his cellphone.

    Jilly, that&#39;s why I&#39;m not a visual artist. Too literal!

    Ron! You just had to get me thinking about <i>that</i> didn&#39;t you…<br /><br />And BadGlue, I thought of that too … but that puts the gondolier under water, doesn&#39;t it? Unless the speaker is a yogi doing headstand…?<br /><br />Great fun in any case….

    Or the contrast could be what&#39;s above the water &amp; what is reflected. 🙂

    I was too busy trying to figure out the acrostic at the left margin 😉
