This afternoon I took a quick drive to my local store to tank up on gas. Of course we have gas pumps everywhere, but I have a special card for my store which gives me points when tanking up. It is all done online with the points and if I go on Sunday afternoon I am on my own and have the pumps all to myself. I am still a bit of an amateur and do not need any spectators and like to pick my own pump and not have to wait. This has nothing to do with being infuriated of course, but on the way to the store I noticed there was a little infuriation.
On my route I drive past this house: not really just a house but a mansion which belongs to one of the more well situated. Actually the guy died a couple of years ago, but his daughters inherited it all. He was a businessman and made his fortune mainly in London, was born and grew up in our local town of Solothurn and has quite a nice home, villa, mansion.
As I drove past I had to avoid a police car that was parked by this entrance. The police guy was talking to one of the daughters on the street and as I drove further a second police car crossed my route and also a police van. Was there a break in? There is certainly enough worth taking in this mansion.
It is quite an imposing building and its main attraction would be the so-called baroque garden with its bushes cut to exact shapes.
The gardens are opened to the public for two days during the year, usually in June and I intend to visit them once with my camera. You only get a little peak at their shapes as you pass by on the neighbouring road.
So now I am looking forward to seeing the newspaper tomorrow to discover what the infuriation was all about that such a large police visit occurred – at least it was large for our little market town.
