....... with my uncle in East Germany. We met at a restaurant, spent about an hour together and then he had to be driven back home.
I was disappointed that I wasn't invited to his home, but I think I understand. I left by train an hour later and got back in at ten last night.
One more night in Rothenburg and then to Frankfurt for some last minute shopping and then home on Thursday.
Remember the Oprah e-mails suggesting she do a show on Early Onset Alzheimer's?
I have now enlisted the help of thousands of Straight Dope Members to send e-mails to her as well, so maybe she will take the hint.
The Straight Dope is a message board I have belonged to since 2000, and the people there are wonderful.
How'm I doing?
Okay I guess, but as I predicted, I am stutterign in German and also forgetting words thatz I should know.
My friend Peter says the forgetting of words isn't too noticeable, because I do sometimes have to "fish" for them even in German, my first language.
Thanks for visiting. Snow should hit tomorrow (Wednesday) so I hope to see it while I am in Frankfurt.
All the best
