oorwullie – I would love to hear your accent – what does ScotxFribourgeois sounds like???? By the way, I’m curious, do you have a Swiss OH?10th October 2008 at 11:40 #800462
my everyday language is fribourger “sensler düütsch”, so you probably wouldnae understand much.
and yes, OH is local.
you say you’ll be over this way from the 20th, i expect to be doing a wee excursion the last october week, direction med but i might well be passing your way since i don’t go autoroute.10th October 2008 at 15:12 #800463
Hiya ruriraschli! We will be emptying/clearing my dads house and visiting parents in the OP home nearby- pm me if you think you might come our way and stop by for a ‘pair of teeth’ as my daughter used to call it! I’ll give you the tel no and directions. Adieu mittenand!10th October 2008 at 18:14 #800464

nothing dreary about november till now goff.9th November 2008 at 19:12 #800468
still can’t wrok our whether the tour will pass past our house or not? Or will it go towards Les Hopitaux and Vallorbe? Or turn by Les Fourgs and the Col des Etroits at St Croix?
We missed the autumn show in the Jura! The leaves were still green when we left in September and were gone by the time we returned late October – can;t wait for next year. Hopefully we WILL be there by then!9th November 2008 at 19:44 #800469

Godule, sincere condolences, so sorry I missed your posting until now.
Sorry I don’t know romainmotiers, but I hope all went well with the funeral and you are coping well.

thanks naps. He was ‘only’ my cousin, but I really liked him and his family. So sad that his wife has just been diagnosed with cancer. B……….r! It is just not fair.
Romainmotiers is a small medieval village not far from you – it has the most wonderful Norman (romanesque) abbey – so do go and visit one day, it’s a lovely place.
If all goes well (!?!) we might be making our move to the Jura early in the New Year- wish us luck. Maybe you’ll come and see us in the mountains one day. by for now Odile9th November 2008 at 19:54 #800471
