    Hello, I have photos of German ancestors with written (German) descriptors.  If you can, could you visit my site and leave a translated comment (in English) for the text?  I would be very grateful.  Thank you.  Tim

    Hello my dearest Manfred--I've missed you these past several months since I'm unable to sit at my computer very much these days. But I was suffering withdrawal symtons today and just had to stop by and give you a hello. Although I had been feeling quite lethargic the past several days, I can definitely inform you that having just watched your movie of you racing your couch on that very winding, curvy road has got my heart racing. You're as fast as the Chunnel Train with everything whizzing by you like a blur. Do cyclists have to obey speed limits--especially in small towns? I was holding my breath on several curves--waiting for someone to dart in front of you--and wondering what the outcome would be. The highway you took on your movie recording was curvy enough that you had room to straighten up in time to get around the next curve. There is certainly no room for error or daydreaming in your world of biking! I'm almost sorry I viewed the film as it caused me even more great concern for your safety. You're definitely a pro at your hobby; and you also have a guardian angel who is watching over you during your various marathons. Please remain safe! Sending you lots of warm, gentle hugs across the miles.
    Luv ya!
    Sweet Caroline

      Hello dear Sweet Caroline,
      nicely, that you have ridden virtually together with me on the couch.  :o)
      I already feared that you have become unfaithful to me.  <*:o)
      Have a nice weekend!

    My dearest Manfred, I'm certainly sorry to hear of your bad experience with a dog several years ago. You are definitely correct about the "tame" animals being just as much of a concern as the wild animals. I sincerely hope, after four major surgeries, your arm is back in full operation. It's not only the surgery you have to endure so many times, but I'm certain you also had to have physical therapy for a while to get some function back into your arm. I do hope the owner of this dog was also required to make a contribution toward your pain and suffering. Although, there is no dollar value one can affix to a major part of, or the major function of, an arm. I'm happy you found the pepper spray to be a successful deterent. Just make certain the wind isn't blowing in your direction--and you end of getting sprayed instead of the dog. I always had a fear of spraying myself with the pepper spray. So in my office, I always had a can of hair spray, as well as an umbrella with a sharp point on the end--by my locked office door. As you stated, one--or both of these objects-- did come in handy on several occasions. It's difficult to believe that working in a university, in the dean's office, one would have to stoop to such measures on a daily basis. We had so much crime and murders in the City of Richmond, VA. In fact, one of our outstanding female dental students was rapped during the middle of the day in one of the dental laboratories. After this very traumatic episode, all of the women took whatever precautionery measures were suitable to protect ourselves.
    Stay safe, dear friend!
    Luv ya!
    Sweet Caroline
