RDP Saturday: Fox

The only object remotely having something to do with the word “fox” here that I have seen is a foxglove flower, so that is all I can offet.

Of course we have foxes, but they appear during the night when I am sleeping and are only noticed by the mess they leave behind in the morning if they happen to get hold of a garbage bag. Of course the rooster at the local chicken run has had his experience with foxes, and decides to go into action when one would bother his harem of chicken ladies. And so I just stick with the foxgloves.

RDP Saturday: Fox

Good Evening

Let us begin with something completely different. Yes, this evening No. 1 son and myself are having a chicken from my air frier. It is not yet crispy and brown, as it is still cookng. A nice easy dish with no great bother, just marinate your chicken with your preferred spice. I mix some hot mustard with paprika and a salty spice, add white wine and oil and let it cook, stuffing it with sage, rosemary and thyme from my herb garden as well as garlic : just turn it now and again. I just love my garlic.

I almost did not visit Mr. Swiss this afternoon as it began to rain at the beginning of the afternoon and we were both a little disappointed. However, just as I called him to say i would stay at home the sun came out, so I decided to pay him a visit. I always park my scooter next to the hedge on the left of the photo. Of course he was surprised and pleased to see me. He was in the dining room as there are no more covid rules, no masks and I can go everywhere.. I joined him in the dining room. Many of his fellow golden oldies were there and it was very pleasant. Actually I had a reason for being there. I have now completed my first voting papers on my own, but was not sure how to prepare the envelope. Luckily we can vote in Switzerland by dropping the forms in a special letter box at the local government office. Mr. Swiss always took care of our voting, we were mostly the same opinion, I just changed Yes and No to my ideas if we agreed to disagree. He showed me how to do it, so now I am a real Swiss citizen. He was quite surprised when I advised him on my decisions. I had studied all the directives and advice from various political parties as well as the goverment. He also got the forms in his home and will also be voting. I think this time I managed to influence him to make the right decisions.

I stayed about an hour and he really seems to be nicely settling in. I was even offered something to drink. Now that everything is open I can visit without a mask and even eat meals in the dining room with Mr. Swiss. The photo is of his local station where I have to cross the road to see him. When I left him the heavens decided to open and I arrived home soaking wet, On a scooter you do not get much protection from the rain unfortunately. Tomorrow should be a sunny day, at least I hope so.

His home is the building on the righthand side of the photo. It is really a weather mixture day. As I sit here typing the sun appears, then it disappears. Hope your day is a better one weatherwise.
