Bon Voyage, Momster!

Today, mom is leaving the sweltering heat of Virginia and flying to Zurich to spend three weeks with my brother Sweetums and his family. It's nice to know that her retirement is filled with such unalloyed coolness.

Meanwhile, on the home front, it's promising to be a scorcher here, and it's the last weekend of our big summer fundraiser. I'll be able to split my time between being indoors and outdoors, so I won't suffer too much. Hopefully, the forecast thunderstorms will hold off until after the event winds down. I really don't look forward to having to herd visitors into shelter in case there are dangerous weather conditions.

She always has a blast.

We're getting off easy compared to the Heartlanders and folks south of us. Of course, we believe in Global Warming, so the FSM treats us better.

She's a smarty!

Isn't it? My great-grandfather was born in Brienz in the Interlaken district, and it's gorgeous.

Some folks got the luck!
