Good Morning

This is going from bad to worse at the moment. We seem to be captured by mist currently and it hovers all through the day. Yesterday I was on my way home from the stores. It was about 4.30 in the afternoon, and the mist began to get thicker. As I drove through the various streets I only had the outlines of the surroundings. I was glad to arrive home.

I now have a new game in my car to pass the time. Since I now have the correct screen on my car, at least the one I like, I discovered that I even see the names of the streets I am driving through. That is quite interesting, although I know most of them, I know this interests no-one, but I had Weissenstenstrasse, Grenchenstrasse, Herrenweg, Obere Sternenegasse (where we once actually had an apartment for a few years) and then Baselstrasse where I turn off into our little estate into the Mattenstrasse eventually arriving in my garage. My own street does not appear by name as it does not have any traffic. I also discovered that I should concentrate more on the traffic that the street names perhaps. It is really fantastic the progress we make with such gadgets. I suppose it is all combined with my GPS, which I must admit have not used up to now.

I am afraid my new photos are far and in between at the moment. I used to take photos constantly as a passenger when Mr. Swiss was driving but as his mobility is quite restricted now, more than mine actually, I have to concentrate on the road as I am the only driver in the family. I miss all those road events like tractors, road works and the surrounding fields. My only opportunity for photography now is from my window or when I take a wheelie in my chair. Wheelies are only possible at the week-end and perhaps a couple of afternoons during the week when I do not have other things to do.

I just got a reminder on my computer and iPhone that next week on Tuesday afternoon, I must take my cat to the vet. It is her once a year appointment, now combined with taking blood samples to see how her kidneys are. She is now on a constant diet of special food and a daily dose of medicine, but she seems to be bearing up for a 17 year old feline. None of us are getting younger unfortunately and time is really creeping up on me. I know too many people in the obits in the daily newspaper. Others I do not even recognise if I meet them on the street because their hair colour seems to have changed from their dark browns to a shade of grey or white, just like mine.

And now to go. It is Saturday, the week-end, but there are still things to do, although no shopping. If it does brighten up in the afternoon I might go for a wheelie somewhere, who knows.

Here is another wonderful bright and clear photo of the morning mists. That is not the sun in the middle, but  a street lamp. I hope your weather is a little more clearer than mine today. Have a good one and make the most of it.

  2. The GPS in my husband’s car is pretty amazing. It not only shows the speed limit of the street we are on (how does it know that??), but it shows his speed limit, too. A pretty handy little tool, I think.

    • I am sure my GPS would be very useful and no problem. The problem is I am the problem. I just am a little bit nervous of trying new things. Up to now I have never needed my GPS but if I have to go somewhere different I probably would try it out. I have been driving my own car for a year now and still have not been further than the next town or the supermarket. It’s diotic really, because I am a cyber golden oldie and computers are no big problem for me.

  3. When I see the stars of my youth on TV and they are old, I am shocked. Why shocked? I’m old, so why shouldn’t they be? It must be very confusing to see your young self on-screen, then looking in the mirror and wondering what happened!
