Came And Went...

My parents arrived in Basel this past Friday. This morning, I drove them to the airport (at 4:45 a.m.!!!!), and now they're gone. But no worries because they're going to spend a few weeks in Finland visiting friends and relatives, and then they'll be coming back to Basel at the end of July.

We didn't really do too much this past weekend. The folks adjusted to the time zone with a few naps, ventured into Basel a couple of times, and we had a few drinks (and enjoyed a fire) on the rooftop. That's about it.

Who knows? Maybe we'll actually venture out of the Basel area when they return at the end of next month.

TBF, the parents look like they are in their 50's, when did they have you. The pic with your Dad, you and the martini's should be in garden magazines and billboard ads for martini's!!!!!!!!

ESP - My mom is 60-something, and my dad is 70-something. I agree - they look good!

TBF...Have you washed that sweatshirt I'm wearing in the photo?? Please, do me a favor and throw it out...do not put in back in the shrank, please. Help me to shed this worn out 20 year old thing that I should have thrown out years ago.
Thanks.
