How do you like your eggs?
I like them fried in butter and the top spashed with hot butter to make sure the skin of the yolk is also cooked and does not remain slimy. Otherwise I eat them, no spices on them, just pure.
Have you ever met anyone famous?
No, not really, I once attended a speech held by the ex prime minister of Great Britain, Harold Wilson, but I was then a teenager and one of many in the audience. Harold Wilson is now long gone. Mr. Swiss had more luck. He played in the Palace Hotel in Gstaad at the New Year in a band, and saw Curd Jürgens, Roman Polanski, Jack Nicholson and Shirley Bassey who were also celebrating the holiday in Gstaad. Of course he did not actually meet them, they mixed with their own kind, but he still talks about it today.
What was the first thing you bought with your own money?
I really cannot remember. As a kid I was a stamp collector and may have bought some foreign stamps.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?
Not very much. I am still recovering from my broken leg and life is not exactly full of excitement. My only enjoyment is reading a book. I did have a surprise when I cashed in my british premium bonds. They cost an english pound each and my dad invested in them for me. Once a month there is a draw and if one of your numbers is drawn, you can win something. I had them for many years, but am now breaking my ties completely with England and cashed them in. I was surprised when I received the final cheque. I had no idea how much my dad had invested, but it was a lot more than I thought.
