I have returned. Yesterday was too hot to do anything. After my return from the doc, I just wanted to take it easy for the rest of the day. Actually I intended to do some reading, but I dealt with this and that and never did any reading.
Anyhow I was in town yesterday and naturally, on the way to the doc, I took some photos.
The good thing about going to the doc, is that I am in a different part of town and usually take the path on our so-called restaurant mile. It is along the banks of the River Aare and lined with tables and chairs with accompanying sun protection from the umbrellas. It is really one restaurant after the other and the only traffic is bicycles now and again and people like me with a scooter. The large white building is our “Landhaus” used for various lectures or exhibitions. It is also part of our annual film festival.
The River is also quite a central part of our Summer amusements at the moment in the hot weather. It seems anything that floats is popular at the moment.
The doc and I decided that my balance problems are mainly caused by my diabetes and I will be seeing her again in a month for a long-term sugar test. She sees no reason for insulin but we will choose different tablets. I have been taking the same for at least 30 years and they are today a little old fashioned.
Her practice has a side entrance which I have to use. I have to ring the bell and the assistant opens the special door for me as I am not able to climb the steps to the lift. This entrance brings me to the lift with no problem.
Today I made a visit to Mr. Swiss. He is still practicing to get his walker onto the scooter. I have been doing it for the past 8 years, but he has problems. Eventually he will get there.
Again it is just too hot to write, so I will now cool down. I will also have to give the garden some water. Wishing you a good week-end.
Yes I was being followed by a pigeon in town.
