Shock in the Morning

January 27/08 4:30 p.m.

Boy, sometimes things happen, you think they do not excist. Started out with having our sporadic houseguest,grandson no.2, for overnite. He likes to sleep in Landfrau's room,which is my utility chamber for retiring,dressing,painting,listening to my music etc. Anyway, room had been occupied,therefore I undressed in the hallway for the night. Now the story gets a bit weird and kind'o difficult to explain, I will try anyway. A few days ago I found some kindof pads, soft plastic, which you can use to put under the straps of your bra, so the things wont slip. Ugly but convinient. Now, this morning, I found one of the gadgets right next to my bed, presumed Herr Hund had put it there,playing around with it. Of course undressing, had completely forgotten about the things (which actually shows that they serve their purpose,beeing useful without beeing noticed) and they both had fallen down. Started looking for the second thing, no deal, vanished. I looked about the house from first floor to basement,nada. The only solution, Herr Hund had gobbled it up (he loves the smell of perfume and body lotion, queer!) . We were about to phone our vet to find out what to do, and if there was anything to do. My breakfast was left almost untouched, I had been so upset. Decided then, to comb through the house about the fifth time, and, surprise,surprise,found the damn thing in the bathtub. Since it is white,it blended perfectly with the tub. Have we all ever been relieved! -
And Herr Hund still pretends he has swallowed the device,if you ask him!

Look, a LANDFRAU-blurb.....

......on the Internet! - Well friends, like I said, you asked for it, now you have to live with it. Such is life!

Sluggish...

January 20/08 2:04 p.m.

...bored, lazy. Had a dream last nite, where fell asleep during a theater play, very symtomatic, falling asleep in my sleep! - Had been downtown last week, cause, as mostly, my beloved denstist - ( ich freu mich drauf) - now this, and take note, profi-blogger son-in-law,is the most stupid (radio) advertising I have ever heard. Who is looking forward to having your teeth pulled out and artificial ones put in, unless you have a mouth full of teeth like Jürgen Vogel, but this guy seems to regard his appearance mouthwise as a trademark. - But I am getting off the subject, now - downtown - really have been in for looking and maybe buying something which transfers the feeling of spring, but no, all show windows decorated with "sales" - up to 30%! - mind you, but I am fed up with dark,black stuff, I have plenty of anyway. (Not next fall,though, but that's how the ball bounces).
Herr Hund knocked over one of my pretty heavy pots of roseplants in the garden today, it started rolling downhill watched by a fascinated dog,who then eyed me sidewise, awaiting a "talking to". Had been too lazy even for that. -
Man of the house sleeping around in various chairs in the house is not much help nor encouragement.

Frau Merkel had been there

January 14/08 7:52 p.m.

...and quite some other VIPs, and in June it will be Landfrau,companion and Herr Hund. I am talking bout Heiligendamm - Kempinski Hotel. And we can cancel up to two days before arrival,which is good, if you think about our dilemas from the previous year and the year before that one. This coast and countryside is pretty unknown to us up to now, time to change that. The only problem will be the weather, but you do not have to start the no-rain dance yet, my friends. - Oh yes, then in July we will make our Holland trip with our youngest grandson, which has turned into an institution by now. We are thrilled,that he still wants to travel with the oldies! - Other small weekend trips might pop up on the go, no flying and no overseas travels are on the list. That's it.

What are you "sinkink" (thinking) about?

YouTube - Outtakes: We are sinking (Revival)

January 11/08 6:05 p.m.
Friends, remember the funny video about the German coast guard guy? - Now here is a video, which in my opinion tops the first one (which of course you have to know, otherwise it does not make sense) . It's about two guys who want to act out the spot, but do not get past the first line, hilarious!

Check-up Time

January 08/08 7:26 p.m.

Every year around this time Landfrau starts to make those hateful appointments for checkup, body, heart , soul ,teeth and what have you. Just love to sit in my car at 7:30 a.m. in the cold and the dark and in a traffic jam to boot to drive 10 kms to just leave a blood sample, where on top I have to sit in a waiting room full of coughing people till i'ts my turn. Every year I consider to skip the whole caboodle and let nature take it's course- well, maybe not the dentist, one looks so stupid without teeth, but an uterus does not show if you still have it or not , does it?

STERNSINGER






January 06/08 3:09 p.m.




Met our little crowd of village "Sternsinger", these are kids dressed up as the three holy kings, Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar and are moving from house to house and sing about the holy child. They collect money for children in need in the world. The action is organized by the Catholic Church. -They kids write C+M+B and the year with chalk next to the door of the house, which means the home is blessed for the rest of the year. Landfrau asked them to pose for a picture and contributed, of course. Got blessed too, but not written on with chalk.

Thanks heavens!


January 2/08 8:38 a.m.


...it's over. All this preparing and dishing out of food, which in the end nobody wanted to eat anymore. Still can feed a schwadron with my leftover goodies. Well, that is the burden of too many holidays. - But otherwise family reunions are nice and the smallest family members are a treat. Next year around this time our newest member will walk around and talk,if she develops at that tremendous speed. She is a doll!

And now Landfrau rolls up her sleeves and gets rid of the X-mas mess and hopefully of some X-mas hipgold!
P.S. Good intentions for the New Year: N O N E
