February 28/08 4:30 p.m.

Springtime, dogs,horses and cats shed fur, Landfrau sheded a lot of fur (hair) today at the hairdresser's, feel pretty naked now! And no , my friends, no link to "naked" Landfrau, tough luck! - Went out for lunch with m.o.m.l. (man of my life) to the CANOO, not so frequented at this time of the year,but never mind, food and view are great. Have to take you there, Montana boy, next visit! -
Got to talking about a friend,who lately kind of shakes his head continiously,both of us could not grab the word "Parkinson", told moml: "...and this my dear husband,this is called ALZHEIMER".

Landfrau is impressed!

For stories like that I love the man-of-the-house!
He woke me up during the nite and told me he had found the same"worm I had found" the other day crawling around in my room(,and I thought it had been a piece of thread ,tried to pick it up and it wiggled, iggit ugh, quite nice for someone who is in a way phobic to crawling slimy things), anyway his was at the wall in our bathroom.So he picked it up and folded it into some paper,the worm stayed alive. The size about half a fingers long and also like a piece of thread. Then he got his letter opener and started to hack it up and he swore that the worm kind of fought him,raising his head with kind of horns mind you ,trying to get at him. He saved it and showed it to me this morning,bingo, same worm,but my monster I had flushed down the toilet,I swear. -
So now he wants it analized -at the zoo,predators section? -
I rather stick to my opinion that it is some not quite ready bug,which came in by the open window, o.k. twice, but if there are many of them sitting in the ivy at our housewall?- Well,friends, I shall keep you up to date.

TheForeign Legionaire and his Dog

February 25/08 6:55 pm.

There is this really rough looking neighbour, shaved bald head, tatoos and an earring,whom Landfrau had been talking too occasionally. Still think one should not judge people by apperance. Now, the other day I met this guy and he had a dog,a doberman ,on a leash. Since I had "Herr Hund" along, we got into talking. Turned out the dog was 18 months old and had been in a family,which could not handle him. Mr.Legionaire told me,that he got the dog from the doberman society and that the dog was supposed to be a watchdog not a lapdog and that he wanted to teach him to be agressive. By that time my hair started raising already but it gets worse. He furthermore stated,that the dog was "gay",not interested in bitches in heat. When I asked him what gave him that idea ,he stated that the dog was trying to jump him. Well,told him,that this is a sign of dominance with dogs and that he should be careful. All the time the dog pulled and bit his leash and the man started to pull and scold him and threatened him with a big stick. Suddenly the dog started growling and jumping at the man. By that time I decided to carry on with my walk, did not want this ferocious dog having a bite of Herr Hund. Told the man good luck with his dog and to be careful. At this he gave me a high and mighty look, the big zampano he was. -
Last weekend during a walk the dog attacked the man and started to bite and maul him till he had been lying on the ground. A neigbourhood farmer managed to get the dog away from him with his tractor, otherwise the man might have been killed. He had been sent to the hospital and the dog was shot by the police on the spot.
So everyone in the neighbourhood ,especially the dog owners,are happy that the dog is a goner, I am glad for the dog, he might have had a poor life with the Legionaire. Hope this guy does not get the idea to have himself another dog,but he probably will.

Amazing, you have nothing you want more(understandable),you have little you want more (understandable) you have plenty,you want more (understandable?) yes, because there is always someone who has even more. And how can you blame little man normalo if the bigshots cheat on the economy big scale.

The Liechtenstein Connection
With one bigwig already toppled for tax evasion and hundreds more likely waiting their turn, all roads lead to the tiny principality of Liechtenstein. According to SPIEGEL sources, Germany's largest post-war economic scandal started with a single intelligence source....keep reading here.....

Rising early in the Morning

February 20/08 2:43 p.m.

Only doctor appointments can make us do that,or going on a trip,and yes, maybe once a while "Herr Hund".
So this morning it had been the unpleasant variant: doctor at an unruly time where I run into the chance of beeing stuck in the daily morning traffic jam. There had been none this morning, so I thought I had time to have a new licence plate (on account of new car) fabricated for our bike carrier. Since close by, thought I could get it done before doctor's date. Finally found the place hidden in a driveway and luckily only one lady in front of me, who of course had to have a receipt, which little man behind the counter first made up wrong. Was my turn finally and little man wanted to know if my seven had been a one or a seven. This established,he printed out the plate, but with the letters put a T instead of a F. So he had to do it again , free of charge, for sure. By then time was running short, no opportunity to stick the plate into the parked car. So I marched into the doctor's office with a licence plate under my arm. Since they also practice as psychiatrists, no one minded and I sat down next to a twitching turning lady,who kept telling me the weirdest stories of her illnesses. My self diagnosed thing, a carpaltunnel- syndrom, proofed right and might have to be operated on if it gets worse, but I told them no, if I die with, but not from it. Have had bad experience with hand surgery.
Still, on account of beeing such an early bird,we had an early lunch of fresh trout,which I had bought, not caught.
Man of the house beeing car-less, could not take in his weekly swimming excercises (his lady- bunch certainly missed him!) and I told him not to stumble out of the door with his sportsbag and...look,no car !(Car is at the garage to have the trailer hitch for carrying the bike carrier fixed).

What an eventful day! - haha,little joke.

1) Have corners installed in the Oval Office
.2) Invade a small country.
3) Mangle a fairly easy sentence.
4) Hit on the First Lady

Some more Pics!

Just an Impression

February 17/08 3:24 p.m.

Often posting about my bike outings with "Herr Hund". Pictures give you an idea and also shows "Herr Hund" taking a rest with a view. He insists that the earth is a disc, he could be right,you know, if you take a look around from his seat. We also took in the riverside and decided to hit the road towards home when we reached the ferry landing, too many people around. And then I had a flat tire, fortunately had to push only a few hunderd meters till home. Question is now how to get the invalid to the repair shop,new car does not have a device yet to fix the bike carrier and to put it in the trunk does not work. We will think of something tomorrow.

Did I say cold?

February 16/08 2:22 p.m.

Aw, during morning walk at the river banks with "Herr Hund" Landfrau could have shed 1. turtle neck sweater,2.big black scarf, 3.sheepskin jacket,and I did take off my gloves. Trying to cope with a "bitches-in-heat" crazy dog raises your body temperature and your blood pressure for sure. Put him finally on the leash and had the feeling of running with nordic walking sticks. - Wait boy, tonite it is the bike and no sniffing! - My revenge!

February 15/08 6:00 p.m.

For a change again :look here " A COWBOY " - Nice? - Yep!
And baby, it's cold outside today, had the feeling my nose was falling off when I took a lazy,small walk with "Herr Hund" . Prediction for the weekend: lots of sunshine but cold. Check the weather pixie at the bottom of my blog!

Parrots, for sure!

February 15/08 8:28 a.m.

Believe it or not, there are two parrots flying around in our neighbourhood. Now we are really having guesses where they might come from, runaways? from some home or zoological gardens? - Anyway, they seem to be quite happy and healthy, inspite of the temperature crowding zero (Celsius). And what do they feed on? Have read,that those birds need grains and there is no grain growing right now,that's for sure. -
Wish, I could catch them with my digi cam - for proof - but no luck up to now.

"Our" astronaut, Mr. Schlegel, is well again and has inspected the "Columbus" labratory. And he will be "out in the open" soon. The "Columbus" is obviously working well. Good for the European scientists.

February 12/08 10:00 p.m.

Yep, that's what we are. Instead of couchpotatoeing we ventured out tonite to have dinner ( food is a must!) which included a young lady-singer and band (soul): Must say, those kids did a good job, only disappointment, Landfrau asked for "Creepin' in" by Norah Jones,(Go to MEDIA-Audio -from FEELS LIKE HOME "Creepin' in") they did not cover it. We did not mind raising the age difference level cosiderably,who cares. The event took place at the "Langster Fährhaus"( have mentioned that place before) ,quite close to our home, where we often go in summer, but then the above mentioned level does not apply.

Ain't them great,all of them? - Dead or alive? And they are more my league (agewise),although I am still always open to new music - and things - thank heavens! With other words, still alive an' kickin' - And now I am going to kick this,weatherwise beautiful, day.

Blogger is fooling up, blog sites are shown as pishing sites. Can only get into my own blog around seven corners. That takes the fun out of posting,my friends! Will wait and see what comes out of it.

P.S. works again, so - no sweat (till next time).

Love, no Spring ...

February 8/08 2:18 p.m. in the air. Well, maybe also love, oh hell, for sure! - Sky is blue, the air smells great, the sun shines and the first blossoms of spring are popping open! Spaceshuttle with a German astronaut aboard is on the way and son-in-law O. has his birthday! -Have a great one! -
Herr Hund and Landfrau will now hit the road,out,out,out...

My,my, those people, I bet they don't worry about elections. Just watch it and have fun.

I will continue to watch the news who is going to gain the lead. And I do not know whom I favour,what I would like is to blend the two, Clinton and Obama, into one - nice utopie.
Bet I am not the only one,havings thoughts of this kind.

Somewhat listless

Knut-bear (daughter) and take note of the Labrador-Dalmatian!

The "Dreigestirn" from Schweinheim

February 03/08 7:37 p.m.

Must have lost the zest for celebrating among crowds. Street carnival without a duty (the previous years I had been a servant at the beer ceg) is somewhat drab. Felt already foolish this morning prettieing (?) up myself with some colourful gadgets and promptly meeting a neighbour on the levy (dog had to be walked), told him that I had an obligation, since I am the mother-in-law of the residing prince. Well, managed to grab a beer and that was it. But the crowd had fun, so did the rest of the family!

Just a little Bit of Snow

February 02/08 8:40 a.m.

Woke up, looked out of the window: SNOW! - Just a little bit but enough to call on childhood memories of waking up in the morning to a landscape covered thickly with snow. We kids hardly could await to run outside. But this has been in another region of Germany where I grew up. Around here we admire the single snowflake and by the time Herr Hund will take me out ( I am a slowpoke in the morning) it might be all gone.

Or should I "gift" you with " Karneval Lieder"? Don't think so.
This Texas guy is good!


February 01/08 8:30 p.m.

Yes, that's me. What do you call your little finger,pinky, is'nt it? - Now is there an equivalent for the little toe? Whatever, I am missing half of my left one. Cut my toenails ,somehow they are as hard as lions claws, so, somehow half of the soft part went too. Looks like that anyway...the way it is bleeding! -
No sweat, won't make a movie out of this one.

Cooked clams tonite, had a feast, man of the house detested the mess eating with his fingers,so I gobbled up his portion too, now I am probably in for a protein shock.
