2. As Nicole was in the same mood, we spent one afternoon on her terrace chatting about a strange phone call. Marianne, the friend I had who let herself starve because her husband was diagnosed Alzheimer, was saved in the last minute by another friend who called the ambulance and she had been taken to the hospital and her husband who was completely lost too. I had once visited her in hospital and then I never had heard from her again and I didn't know to where she went once cured. Nicole too had tried to find out where she was, found her in a recovery home, but Marianne didn't want to talk to her and to me neither. So we gave up.
3. Our pedicure came and while she took care of me foot nails, the phone rang and it was Marianne ! I couldn't believe it. She was exuberant and talked and talked that she was now in a retirement home in Brussels, that she was happy and that she had ordered a little dog for 2000 € (2.200 $), while the little dog she had, was now with friends. She had also strangled her parrot and now she wanted again one. She is nearly 80 and I realized that there must be something wrong with her brain ! Anyway she didn't have a phone and apparently called from a public phone, and suddenly the conversation was cut off. So I still don't know where she is.
4. It continued to be nice and warm and as I hadn't been in our town center since quite some time, always driving through, I decided to make a little walk there. Nicole joined me with Charlie. After having inspected some boutiques very quickly, we both are not boutique lovers, we discovered some new places.
A restaurant which only serves burgers in all variations, with a very beautiful garden in the back. I found the sign so funny.
Then we had a coffee on the place at the main street where you can see all people walking by. As usual Charlie had a lot of success and we talked to many people. Finally the afternoon was over !
5. Our painting class with the newcomers grew and our teacher decided that we should wear badges with our names, because it is impossible to keep all the names in mind. We had a lot of fun and decided to meet once a week outside the class, because there is always so much to tell, that we don't have time to paint ! So 6 of us will get together on Mondays and will make a turn.
After class Nicole and I went for lunch and there (through Charlie) we met a doctor who pretended to see what is wrong with a person only by looking in his/her eyes. I got it immediately that he was making fun, but Nicole fell in the trap and really believed it. But before he could look deep in her eyes, I started to laugh and then she got it too. Finally an Asian lady and an other man joined the conversation and when we left it was already 4 pm.
We went to the shop where Nicole had ordered new kitchen furniture to see how far they were with the order and apparently the new kitchen will be installed in November.
