You know those encouragements for buying the new perfect TV from the supermarket. As you have finished at the cash desk there is the opportunity to see yourself on the TV set as the electronic department is opposite the food department. Yesterday I probably had too much time on my hands, so decided on one of my experimental photos with the mobile phone camera, not knowing that Mr. Swiss was joining in. So here we are, at 11.00 am after the shopping trip. We are not really so distorted in real life, it was the angle of the TV set camera and that’s my story. It seems we were alone with the photographic result, but Mr. Swiss mentioned there were various people enjoying watching us in action.
Afterwards we wandered on into the electronics, as I had not had a detailed examination of the newest arrivals for some time. They have a range of microsoft laptops, as well as Apple and I wanted to see if there was anything worth knowing, but nothing really. Apple have at last brought out a new computer with more disk space: interesting but my apple computer works perfectly and I really only use it for blog writing, so I do not really need more space. I have my photos on my Microsoft computer and two hard drives. Yes I am a cyber golden oldie . I write my good morning blog on my microsoft , not only a golden oldie, but a versatile golden oldie.
And now it was time to depart. It was my turn to drive to the supermarket, so Mr. Swiss took the driver’s seat on the way home and I could concentrate on a few action photos from the car on the way. I only wish he would show more understanding and indulgence when driving. If he could perhaps drive slower when there is something worth an action photo, but he insists on looking at the road ahead and not varying his driving speed according to my wishes: typical man.
My photos are more luck than jundgement, but now and again I get an action photo.
They are still busy demolishing the appartments where Mr. Swiss lived in the fifties and I managed a lucky shot. Perhaps Mr. Swiss had to brake for the car in front, my luck. When the blocks are removed, plans have already been made for the new estate. It will be in the form of a park, very green with trees and bushes and in between new appartment blocks. Very nice, although the train connection between Solothurn to the other side of the Jura mountains runs at the side of it. At least you live next to the supermarket.
Our building project is continuing and currently the work is concentrating on construction next to our back window.
They had stuck paper all over one of the windows, so I was immediately present to ask how long. The builder, one of the friendly ones, told me just for a couple of hours. They would be cutting part of the concrete away below and chips would be flying. They wanted to avoid breaking any windows. I decided there is always a reason for everything and in the afternoon they had removed the covers, so I was left with stained windows – again. No problem, I am now a full time window cleaner.
As I now hear the sound of the vacuum cleaner in the background I should move on: there are things to do like cleaning and places to go to clean, like a bathroom, so have fun today, like I am.
I will leave you with a photo of the Jura mountains taken from the parking lot of the supermarket. In the distance you might see the paraglider hanging in the air, just a speck on the horizon.
