clean sweep

The whole house feels warmer thanks to our new Swiss chimney sweep who came by this evening. After he cleaned out the chimney and started a roaring blaze, we enjoyed an evening of conversation that bounced back and forth between English and Swiss-German. In one fell swoop we’ve found an excellent new acquaintance and brought warmth and luck into our new home. I couldn’t be happier.

  1. A little known secret! If you happen to know a Swiss chimney sweep, invite him to clean your chimney in order to be blessed with good luck. If you don’t have a chimney, build one.

  2. Nothing like a little bit of Swiss luck to make your new home warmer and brighter. And a new Swiss friend to make it happier. How nice for you.
