RDP Tuesday: Break

Everyone seems to be taking a break this afternoon as I travelled along our local river bank. I noticed that our river was a little higher than usual and was rushing along a little quicker, due to the heavy rains and flooding we have had in some parts of Switzerland. Now we have the summer heat again and people were making the most of it. It is also now the beginning of the summer holidays. Being a golden oldie, every day is a holiday for me.

RDP Tuesday: Spruiker

If the Swiss speak in public we like to do it in subdued tones, nothing loud or spruiking. Just take a comfortable seat and wait your turn. In this case it was a harmless reading group on one of our places next to the river, choosing their text from books they like to read. A microphone was supplied.

The text says (translated from the orignal German)
Anyone can read out
The first two pages
The last two pages
2 pages from the middle of the book

RDP Tuesday: Sawyer

Whenever I went to town I would pass this tree standing in a field. It no longer had fresh leaves and it seemed that other growing bushes were taking over.

And then, one day, as I passed the tree this was all that there was. The tree had been felled, it was no longer standing tall and firm. This was two years ago, but the remains are still there, left in the field for nature to do its work. In a last effort it even produced some green leaves.

RDP Tuesday: Widowmaker

My gardiner is a widowmaker. He chops trees and makes them smaller. I must say there were no trees harmed during the operation, at least I heard no screams. My apple tree was now ready for the Summer to come. After the unwanted branches were removed it said it could breathe again and all the little buds were relieved as they could become apples.

RDP Tuesday: Random

When a bee sees an insect hotel he has to make a decision. He will not just occupy any random hotel room, it has to be in the right place: a view from the balcony and enough room to curl up and wait for whatever happens to a bee in his hotel room. Some of the rooms were already occupied and the doors closed, but he managed to find a nice room almost a penthouse suite – so what could be better.
