Yesterday our dear swiss friends Brigitte, Peter, Yucki and Vera moved back to Switzerland after 11 years of having called NYC their home. They left in style via boat, a big boat, Queen Mary 2. We went to wave goodbye and to hold up some giant letters that I’ve cut out of foamboard.

(Too bad they didn’t know what DRAMAMINE was. We thought it was hilarious and would add some much needed lightness to it all. And by the way, the idea to spell out Dramamine was G’s. He’s brilliant! )

Goodbye Hossli/Schmid’s. You will be dearly missed. (sigh)

good bye
