|Michelle had to work because time was running out|
|but got unfairly in trouble for "Coping with Joyce".|
|Ron Hoffman told stories to Ruth Frehner...|
and made her terribly giggle :)|
Ron splits his time between Amsterdam and Bangkok, where he teaches English literature and works as a counsellor. Many years ago, he gave a cheese slicer to the ZJJF, still in use.
Ruth has been at the ZJJF just as long as I have been at Vanderbilt!
Sam Slote and Chris Whalen. |
These two always had the best Tshirts. Sam had New York subway lines, and 'Tintin in Vietnam'. Chris had 'This one time, at Joyce Camp...' and Einstein's 'I am a deeply religious unbeliever'.
|Teresa was happy (- I should have used a flash)|
|We came in view of Rapperswil. Rapperswil, on the east shore of Lake Zurich, is a medieval town in the canton of St Gallen. Founded in 1229, it is often referred to as Rosenstadt (= the town of roses). The main sights of Rapperswil are a castle dating from the 13c., a reconstructed wooden bridge to Hurden, a Capuchin monastery, and rose gardens (with more than 600 varieties). Rapperwil is on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostella.|
|You can swim in Lake Zürich. Some took the opportunity including Ruth, Kay, Teresa, and Chris. Amanda and I dipped our feet in the cold water, then sat with Judith to chat.|
|There were swans at play, and puppies. I was reminded of Sonya.|
|We crossed the long wooden bridge that links Rapperswil to Hurden.|
The mountains behind were gorgeous|

We arrived at the restaurant Rössli Hurden. Hansruedi Isler joined us, he came by train.|
Hansruedi, a kind and generous person, is a long time Friend of the ZJJF and a member of its Reading Groups. Dr. Isler is a Neurologist, and a world authority on headache. Though officially retired, he still sees patients in a Headache and Pain Clinic (Zürich University Hospital). In addition to clinical publications, he is interested in the history of medicine. He has published a book on "Thomas Willis, 1621-1675. Doctor and Scientist" and most recently an article on the first description (1745) of episodic cluster headache.
