RDP Wednesday: Recharge

Recharging has become a way of life. I think this was my very first mobile phone and that had to be regularly recharged. Today the phones just seem to do it themselves. I have three points in my apartment with leads ready to be attached to my telephone, according to where I am. I usually listen to radio on my iphone.

This morning I had an urge to visit the bathroom, as usual when I awake and at the same time my alarm sounded. That was too much, so after the bathroom visit I went back to hugging the duvet for a while, with my iPad for company. It keeps me up to date on the world.

RDP Wednesday: Mischief

All the snowmen lined up in a row
They were all excited and ready to go
Their maker inspected all their looks
Ready to choose a winner for the nook
The choice fell on Frosty because of his hat
And he was so proud to be placed on the mat
His carrot nose was blushing all along the way
Frosty was so glad and knew he could stay
The golden oldies in the home knew Frosty was the best
And so he became their Winter guest

RDP Wednesday: Boggle

On one of my visits to my dentist I was waiting to visit the drill and other insruments in the torture chamber when I noticed this clock on the wall. Of course, it would be a mystery to most here, and probably any non Swiss visitors but it tells you the exact time. Yes we Swiss are talented in developing time pieces. The words “Viertu vor Drü” are Swiss German. In high German it would be “Viertel vor Drei” and in English “A quarter to three”. And that is really a mind boggling task. Good that I speak all three languages. In any case it helped to relieve my mind whilst visiting the dentist.

RDP Wednesday: Mosquito

I met my first mosquito in Switzerland. In London we did not have so many mosquitos. There was probably too much competition with the traffic. In Switzerland they usually gather late Summer, early Autumn. You do not really see them, but you definitely hear them with their buzzing- I am prepared with my anti mosquito weapons. Just fill it with some sort of liquid and plug it in. You are then mosquito free for the night. There is nothing worst than having to scratch all day with the itchy bumps they leave behind.

RDP Wednesday: Tattoo

The seem to be everywhere. The workers remove their shirts in summer and the tatoo exhibition has arrived. Mr. Swoss is in a golden oldie home, and he does not have a tattoo, but he was telling me today that all the nurses have one somewhere, not to mention the male staff. I do not have one, although I was telling Mr. Swiss today that if I was 50 years younger, I would probably have a tattoo. Although I must say today with 76 years of age I would probably regret having one. And here is one of our road workers showing his tattoo.

Strangely he is the only one with the trousers rolled up – of course, he has a tattoo.

RDP Wednesday: Spooky

Down in the cellar we have a few rooms. There is, of course, the cellar itself with odds and ends of rubbish that no-one really wants, but you keep them in case. There is also the laundry room with the washing machine, and also my mega large deep freezer. Of course now and again I have to fetch food from the freezer. There is also our hobby room which is mainly cupboards, book shelves and unwanted objects that I am gradually clearning out. Howeeer, to get to these places you have to go through the verious passages in the cellar which can get quite spooky, especially if it is evening and there is no-one there.Everything seems to lead to dark places. I have never seen a spook up to now.
