Re: I smiled because...

... one of our Swiss neighbours spontaneously invited us to go with them on an outing (they too have a mini black Lab).

Re: I smiled because...

I have just come back from the supermarket and the man behind me in the queue had 3 large jars of onions and 2 toilet brushes in his basket - it just looked so funny

Re: I smiled because...

just come back from 2 days walking in the snow and golden larch on 'fire' - to Arolla and Ferpècle glacier. Simple but very pleasant hotel in Evolène for 40 CH a night- and a perfect steak with roschti and veg from the restau garden. half a bottle of Oeil de Perdrix and coffee, again 40CH - who says Switzerland is expensive. Gorgeous.

Re: I smiled because...

whilst having a great steak dinner the other day at the Central Restaurant in Evolène- the lady owner came to ask if all was OK. She was very proud to say all the veg were home grown by herself. Then she asked if we wanted to try the pickled courgettes she had made earlier and brought us a jar. Delicious, sweet and sauer. I asked if she minded giving me the recipe- and it arrived in the post less than 2 days later! Thanks Mrs Métrailler

Re: I smiled because...

I was able to spend time yesterday afternoon with a mod on this forum who has a heart of gold and beauty to match. I received some terrible news yesterday evening and just thinking back to the afternoon and the fun we all had (little cute children everywhere) made things feel a bit better.

Re: I smiled because...

Re: I smiled because...

This morning was my first time riding the tram to work in a very long time (I usually bike to work). The middle section (lower part) was full with mothers and babies. I was sitting in the middle section, behind a mother with her pram. Two elderly people got on in the middle section at the next stop and the woman yelled at the old people and told them they should not get on where the prams are they ignored her and sat down. I LAUGHED OUT LOUD, loud enough that the offensive mother asked me what I was laughing about. I said I was laughing at her, that I found it extremely funny that she thought that the middle section of the tram was just for baby prams, but that I thought it was even more hilarious that she felt like informing the elderly people who got on about her views. I told her that the lower part of the tram is not only for prams, but also for the elderly who cannot manage stairs, the handicapped and 'GASP' even for the people with BICYCLES
The look on her face was priceless! I wished her a wonderful day and thanked her that there were people like her on the earth as it would be a boring world if everyone was friendly and compassionate with one another.

Re: I smiled because...

....the city of Zürich suddenly painted crossing stripes at my favorite jaywalking spot.

Now I save a good 2 mins on my commute/don't have to wait for breaks in traffic to get the short cut!
