FOWC with Fandango: Heckler

Now and again our little market town gets annoyed and so we have a demonstration. This time it was due to thr climate change which we all have problems with. This poster is written in German, but translated it would say “Has your brain already melted?”. As it was a Swiss demonstration, it remained peaceful, but the words tell it all.

Cows grazing in the desert and the earth smoking a pipe and looking quite sad.

RDP Friday: Optimist

They do not look so optimistic, but the carnival masks in this exhibit make the local people very optimistic. It looks like our carnival season has reaturned after two years of disappearance due to the Covid threat. We are again allowed to celebrate, turn the night to day and have a procession through the street. Personally I am not a carnival person, but those that are will again be celebrating and the children especially will be having fun. This local neighbour always has his fun with the ornaments outside his house,.

FOWC with Fandango: Origin

My origins were on the green lawn on the picture, which is all that is left of my home. There used to be 100 houses on this space. It is the East End of London, Bethnal Green to be exact, the heart of cockney London. The houses were built in 1884, demolished in 1972 and now there is nothing left. I was 20 years old when I left London, my British family no longer exists and I have been living in Switzerland 55 years, so where is my origin now?
