I didn't! But it would be reasonable to assume higher than the mountains!

Re: I smiled because...

My husband was shouted at by a stroppy female counter assistant in Basel because he didn't understand one of the questions on the form he was filling in to renew his residency permit.

She shouted "IT MEANS DO YOU LIVE WITH YOUR WIFE" at him. I think sometimes he wishes he doesn't

Unfortunately as he was cycling back his bike frame snapped in half, so not a good day for him!

Re: I smiled because...

Looking for something I ended up scrolling through some old threads.
It used to be easy going and fun here ....

Just as a random example: When was the last time you read anything funny and not backed up with legal articels by ASitUS?

Your posts are all great, ASitUS, very helpful and informative, I'm not complaining, but .....

Re: I smiled because...

......... someone sent a photo of my husband the other day, taken back in the 80s when he was 28 and slim (I was a tiny lady back then!) I said it was probably because we had a big mortgage and hardly any disposable income, so we didn't go to restaurants, buy wine etc.

His reply was he thought it was because we had only been married 2 years and we were on the F Plan Diet (think about it)

Because we really gutted out our Puccini parts in the symphony this evening. That dude would have been proud of us.

Re: I smiled because...

...a fox just walked down out garden path in broad daylight, totally unaware that I was there. Strange looking creature. Unlike any other fox I've seen with a dark beige and black mottled coat (like an Alsatian), and also bigger than the others we regularly see in the area, but definitely a fox brush tail.

Two braids or a wimple, traditionally AFAIK. 3ft is short by medieval standards.

Re: I smiled because...

Ohhh that is indeed a cute thread! This already made me smile.
Today, I was the waiting hallway of an acupuncturist who has her practice next to people who live in the same building. The neighbor, an old swiss lady, came out and offered me a coffee with a huge smile. That was super surprising for me in the best of ways.
