vern and lettuce in switzerland!

Oh, wow! This e-mail from Jill Collinge just made my day:

Vern and Lettuce went to the Geneva car show. On the way they found some signs of spring - MASSIVE flowers. Unfortunately the Swiss have a habit of using blue signs for normal roads and green signs for motorways (the opposite of the UK and France) so we think they got lost. At any rate they weren´t impressed with the cars on show.



They are staying with us for a few days so we´ll keep you updated. We might even take them to see Voltaire´s chateau. He lived close enough to the border to nip into Switzerland if the French King didn´t like any of his books. Can´t tell you anymore about Voltaire because my son says it is spoiling a good email with ¨history¨.

And like Rosa, you can contribute to Vern and Lettuce's online magazine, The Pickle!
