Good Evening

I really do not understand this weather. The morning began with sun and stayed. After dinner I had my midday sleep and heard the rain outside. I was not very happy as I had an appointment with the doctor in the afternoon which i did not want to postpone but travelling on a scooter in the rain is not ideal. However, the weather gods were sympathetic and it stopped raining as I left for the doctor. My next problem was that I was a week too early for the doc and had got a little confused. However, she made time to see me and now I have my tablets for my giddy spells, although another appointment in a couple of weeks to see how I am doing.

Now we have brilliant sunshine in the evening and it really looks like it will be a good evening.

I tend to listen to the British Radio during the day, and at the moment everyone in England has the Platinum Jubilee Fever celebrating the queen’s 70 years on the throne of England. Being a Brit I thought I would mention it, although I am not one of those Brits that belongs to her fan club. She is OK but in small doses. She did send my dad a birthday card (see photo) although she had to be reminded that he was 100 years old and she even signed the card. My dad passed away some years ago, but I have the card in my possession.

I think at that moment he did decide to become a monarchist,

Otherwise I had to cross the River Aare to get to the doc as she is in another part of town. I do not often go to that part of town, although we did live there for 20 years.

Many of the old buildings have been demolished and it seems to have become one restaurant after the other. The streets are much wider and busses circulate.

This used to be a cinema, but now seems to be a hall of some kind. I think they have art exhibitions there now and again.

Mr.Swiss managed to survive without my daily visit, although he did forget that I had an appointment with the doc. One of our mutual problems is forgetting. Must be something to do with getting older. I am alone this evening, No. 1 son is at a rock concert. I think I will take it easy this evening and now to make something to eat.

Wish everyone a good rest of the day and a good start into the week-end. If you happen to be a Brit, enjoy you jubilee parties.
