Stop taking my picture. I refuse to have a photo standing next to such a small fry of a dog, it is humiliating.RDP Friday: Smarmy
Let’s see where I went today, not viewing building sites. This one is on our estate and few months ago it was just a flat piece of land with a view on the neighbouring forest. The neighbouring forest is still there, but the view is no longer so much as we have a growing block of apartments. It is really amazing how fast they can build today, with the help of two large cranes and manpower. The bricks are being fitted together and the lift shaft if almost finished.
But I had an appointment in town with my doc. She found it was time to have a closer look at my sugar household, although we spent the first minutes having a talk about everything else. We got around to talking about my teratom which I had removed in two operations, the second being about 7 hours. What was it – my twin sister or brother that never actually existed. It was a collection of cells that should have developed but I probably decided I was going to be unique and this collection of cells just lived with me all my life until I became about 50 years old when it decided to grow. No problem eventually after my operations.
So enough of my strange inside life. The doc found my sugar household was not perfect but not a danger, so I can report back some time in August.
Which means another tour of our Vorstadt (fringe area) where the buildings are closer together and traffic is almost non existant.
On the way home I drove through our restaurant mile on my scooter where there is one table after the other for a drink. We would think that no-one works in this town on Friday afternoon.
And of course a river runs through it, our River Aar.
Mr. Swiss was also out about and about today. His therapy teacher took a group of the golden oldies on an excursion. Mr. Swiss messaged me when he returned to say that he was even given a wheelchair which one of the other golden oldies pushed as it would have been a little too far for him to walk with the walker. They went to a nearby area, naturally with a restaurant, where we had often been together in the good old days when he needed no wheelchair and I needed no scooter.
I also got news today that our tax expert is now completing our papers but one document was missing. I had a search and found it quickly so now everything is under control. I am quite proud of myself for completing our tax papers this year all on my own. As soon as I get the completed documents I will have to sign them and can take them to Mr. Swiss to sign them as well and then income tax finished for another year, we just have to pay the bills.
I noticed in town that our fair has arrived – of course. It is now May Day next week and we always have such amusements at this time of the year, although not my sort of thing.
And now to tomorrow, although I will not be going places, just a visit to Mr. Swiss. I have not seen him since Wednesday. My head cold would not have been welcome in his golden oldie refuge. However, I received a letter today to say that it will no longer be necessary to wear masks in his home and we can even now eat meals in the restaurant.
I eventually said goodbye to our river and the town and made my way home. Have a good week-end everyone.
