Who's a Smart Fox, then?

Sonya sent us this photo of Fox sitting on a swing. She also wrote that the little smartypants has learnt how to open the fridge and help himself to strawberries and beer. (Although I'm sure he couldn't open the bottle).

Just the same, he's cute....

Hi Guys, am I not just soooo cute?

We Know When We're Beaten

If you've been following my 'From Thun to Brisbane' blog, you may remember that I came to Australia with my friend Ben a long time ago. Well, like me, Ben is still in Australia living with his wife Lyn on the Gold Coast. The four of us have been friends for a long time. When our children were very little, Ben and I taught Diane and Lyn how to play the Swiss national card game 'Jass'. So every couple of months we get together either at our place in Daisy Hill, or their place at Labrador. We play cards, always the girls against the boys. Now I don't want to boast, but ususally the boys win. Not so this weekend. This time the girls (both Australian) beat the boys (both Swiss) at our own game 6 games to 2. As I said, I know when we're beaten.

Hearts is trump and holds 50 points with the Stöck
