I still have my scooter, but after 2-3 years of use, it was time to have a service. I also managed to have my first flat tyre. Luckily the company where I have it are very good with repairs. I called the and they came on the same day, took my schooter for a service in their company and left me a scooter to use in the meanwhile, After a couple of days my scooter was returned in perfect condition with two new rear tyres Threy had inspectrd the breaks and the battery and it is now like a new scooter, although I, of course, had to pay for the work I am now set to go for the next thousand kilometers of my travels.
And something new for the New Year? I do not think so, I will probably be sleeping when it arrives.RDP Saturday: New
Flowers are really getting scarce, but one of my neighbours still has his roses in the garden.FOTD 29th December 2022: Winter Rose
Advertisements are lost on me, especially on the TV or Radio. Constantly the same stupid remarks and eventually you actually forget what it is all about. However, last year I remember this advertisement around Chromes. Perhaps a little disrespectful to Santa, but he also is hzman.
It was for all to see at the parking places in the local superarket. I believer there were some complaints and it was quickly removed. Not the sosrt of thing that you want your kids to see at Christmas I suppose.FOWC with Fandango: Advertisement
What do we have here? Is this an esculant, edible, something to enjoy. My mum and dad would probably have thrown it in the garbage, thinking it was a strange object and definitely not to be eaten. I saw my first avocado about fifty years ago. My British life, and even my Swiss life, had no avocados. I read about them perhaps in stories, but it was not something for a Brit like myself, although I am open for anything new. I then discovered that you can actually grow the overlarge seed in the middle. Many avocado trees began to grow in pots at home. However, after a year or more I gave up on them, it was really not determined for the Swiss way of life. And now I even buy one now and again and quite enjoy it with perhaps some prawns in a salad or as this evening with smoked salmon on bread. I have grown toi love the avocado. Some may be shaking their heads here thinking nothing really special. Where they live the avocado trees might be growing in every garden. Here they are to be found in the grocery section for the special fruits.RDP Thursday: Esculant
Still no flowers or even ineresting leaves, but the branches of the treesin my garden with a sunset background also have their charm.FOTD 28th December 2022: Winter Branches

Fantastic came to me early evening, before the darkness arrived with these wonderful sugar pink clouds.
And then a flock of crows arrived to set the mood.
The moon also decided to join in the show and now everything was perfect.RDP Wednesday: Fantastic
