The Swiss Front 2008
Christmas, New Year 2008
2007 is history! It was a busy and interesting year, the targets almost met, weighing now 112kg, a decrease of 3kg
over the year. Not bad! Now, new challenges are luring around the corner and we will try to master them. In Sallah! Mami's 90 birthday is also coming up!
Time passes... Below some pictures from our Christmas outing to the Pfanner family in Kennelbach. A yearly event which always gets out of control.
Frida's 50th birthday, Saturday, 21.12.08
Already on Friday, we drove to Kennelbach, in Austria, for a warm-up, before the big party on Saturday. We got on "practising" till 3 am.
After breakfast we cured our hangover with more beer and where ready for action at 19:30. A bus picked us up and we drove to the venue.
Moses was stressing, getting the electronics for the band working and Chantal was looking for beer: Ten big ones, please!- From than on the party started:
dinner, booze, live music, dancing and even a presentation showing Frida's achievements during the last 50 years.
Around 3 am we boarded the bus and drove back to Kennelbach.
There the party continued with pepper soup, gari, and much more beer and of course the local "Obstler" (spirit).
The last ones went to bed around 6 am.
Of course, these activities called for hangover drinks and pepper soup, starting at 11 am and laid the ground for yet another lively evening.
Now I'm back Swiss Front in Switzerland for recovery. The Austrian gang will show up, at our Swiss Front, in a couple of days for the Swiss treatment.
The Infestation from Austria!
After Christmas Allan & "Traffic" visited us in Dietikon for 2 days and we continued the party.
The women and children stayed back in Austria because of a flue attack. In the evening we went to the Niederdorf, in Zürich,
and had in "Wolf's Bierhalle" and some bars a couple of beers. A week later, came the "Girls" with their children.
Fritz brought his son Cayden, Sandra and Tobias dropped in with their 2 children . It was very busy to say the least but also a lot of fun!
The "Girls", for ever young, beat us and stayed out in a disco till morning! Thank you all for a great time, we do it again!
Susi's (alias "Sister") holidays in Switzerland August 2008
Nancy's mother, Suzzie, is now with us since on months. She lives in Accra
/ Ghana. Unfortunately for her, we spent 2 weeks holidays and before I was
away on business. So there was very little opportunity for her to see the country side. Excellent weather after our return
allowed us to make some nice excursions. Susten, BrÃ¼nig and with my mother we went on the Stanserhorn
Mami was a little bit afraid that she could not make it because of the height (1'900m), but she did very well and enjoyed it.
