Week 9 Switzerland
Our Bookseller is still flitting around Wales, revisiting Hay-on-Wye, and other attractions, and settling down at The Dragon, in Swansea, birthplace of Dylan Thomas. He might go to Switzerland before next week, but for now, he is the recipient of another post card, from Wifey.
TRANSLATION of Wifey's handwriting:
Dear Husband,I failed to place in the race in Switzerland, but at least I did not fall off the camel (at anytime I was on one.) Yes, I rode that camel, but not in Switzerland, and certainly not recently, so don't panic. The race was in 2008. I was nowhere near Dielsdorf at the time.I am still slaving in the store. LOL!
Doug and Sebastian told me they would drop off this postcard at the hotel on their way back to Scotland. Isn't it fun? Do you remember seeing it before? Actually, I copied it from a photo someone took of me when I was in Egypt, in case you don't. When things are slow at the store, I whip out the art supplies, andI finish things like this off on the computer.
CONTINUATION FROM POSTCARD, in a note in a book she has sent to Hank:
See? I am keeping busy!
BLAME SHERI for my card! I felt pressed for time and rather than starting something new for this week's card, I asked Sheri to find a way to let me use what I was drawing/painting at the time. When she wasn't fast enough, I had to resort to Google once again. :) It just happens that there is an actual foundation for such a convolution of images and ideas as my Swiss postcard.
