What one word describes you best?
Me and grandad on the right on the photo. Never ask you partner for a word to describe you. It proves that men do not understand women and they use too many words. I am creative, thoughtful, a happy-go-lucky sort of person, that has a sense of humour. Mr. Swiss tells me that not everyone understands my sort of humour, and I can sometimes be annoying when he is reading a newspaper or watching the news on the TV as I bother him with trivialities such as a shopping list. This question is now hanging as undecided.
What is set as the background on your computer?
On my Windows machine I have Tabby in one of her best poses.
My Apple computer has a standard photo supplied by Apple, but it appeals to me.
If you have been to a foreign country name those you have been too?
I live in a foreign country, Switzerland, but after 50 years it is no longer so foreign and I even have a Swiss passport. Originally I am English, and still have British Nationality. Otherwise: USSR (1964), Finnland, Sweden, Denmark, France, Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, Liechtenstein and USA.
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I appreciated at last getting my electric wheelchair. At last I can get out again with my camera. Walking was no longer as safe as it should be and balancing a camera with a stick in one hand was not ideal when taking a photo. I also did not have the stamina for longer than about 15 minutes to go far. Learning how to drive a wheelchair is more complicated than a car I discovered. When you see someone in a wheelchair you do not realise that they also have to learn how it works. Forward and backwards is no problem, but try making a three-point-turn to park it in a good place. That needs practice. Otherwise everything under control, it even has a horn to warn people and lights for right and left.
At last the Christmas is over and I now only have to push the new year away which is not such a big problem. Then life will be back to normal.
