The greeting this morning is in chinese, and according to Internet Mandarin Chinese, so I hope it is and not some sort of chinese profanity, you never know.
Otherwise my first check this morning found that Trump is still in charge, a Swis machine had to land in Canada because they somehow lost a motor and it is raining outside.
An early morning photo as our estate awakes. It was raining and a couple of cars were driving throught on our local road.
It is Friday again, time for a week-end shopping tour. The list is made, it is united on our cloud on the telephone, so two golden oldies will again be seen in the supermarket with their mobile telephones in their hand checking through everything and eliminating what is already in the shopping trolley. You have to go with the times I suppose, and as I am no longer capable of writing anything by hand that I can read myself, it is the best solution. I notice other golden oldies are not so cyberised as Mr. Swiss and I, but they seem to know what they want. This time Mr. Swiss was the driving force when he told me yesterday evening he had made the list so I called in to check through it and add anything he might have fogotten. There were a few odds and ends, it always needs a woman’s touch somewhere, but otherwise he did quite a good job.
This morning we had a call to say the guy will be coming on Monday morning to replace our cracked sink in the bathroom. He said something on the phone about 7.30 a.m., but we managed to move it onto 8.00 as at 7,30 in the morning we are still feeding the birds and eating breakfast. Anyhow it was a prompt organisation. Probably because we still had the detailed plans from the last two times when it got a crack.
We have another voting week-end in Switzerland in a weeks time, although we have already completed our papers and sent them off – we do it by post, although our voting place is only around the corner living in a small village. I am not sure what I actually voted for, but even one of the newspapers said it was very complicated, but it would be a good thing to say yes. I leave it all up to Mr. Swiss, as he has it in the blood. I am just an immigrant in this country and a paper Swiss. I usually skim through the items on the voting list to see if there is anything that would really bother me, but generally what 7-8 milion people is Switzerland decide cannot be so bad as to change the face of world politics. Most countries are not even sure we exist, just a place to pass through when on your way to somewhere else.
And now time to go, whilst the going is good.
There is always a crow watching somwhere.
