Hey Zuk... thanks, I'm laughing my butt of in my hotel room the people next door must think I'm retarded! Let me know when you're planning on coming out! I could use the company.
Hi mom! Yep, the place is pretty nice, I'll post pics soon.
Happy Easter... hope you enjoyed the b-ball game!
Hi Anita! You know I'm the bashful type, but I'll try ot get a few of me in there. My best guess for that phrase in german is "Konnen Sie nehme meinen foto bitte" That's tough to say!!
Thanks babe! I LOVE YOU!!!
From what I'm told, it's the 3rd or 4th riches city in Germany. Very nice, lots of little shops and pubs. They are very space conscience that is for sure, makes you appreciate the spacious living we have in the States.
Love you and miss you both!
It's a 20min train ride southeast (I think) of Weisbaden. Very small town, I looked at a couple appartments there yesterday. Yikes! Not someplace I was comfortable.
Hi sweetie! hahahaha
Trip was good, long flight but I slept most of it. Germany is very interesting! you'd like it, not a lot of HVAC places around :). As for Macomb, they still have to vote on it. I tihnk it goes to the board this week. Verben was cool, he said there were officeres that didn't want to grant me the leave. But he veto'd them.
Hi Aunt B!
Yes, I will be looking for something more permanent. The hotel is nice but very costly and no room to even unpack. Hopefully within the week I can find an appartment. Talk to you soon.
Hi Tina! Thanks, yes it is a very cool city, very cosmopolitian. Hopefully I get a chance this weekend to scout out a little more.
I'm still fighting the jet-lag so sleep has been tough. But its getting better.
Work is good, I am working on the glovebox for the US version. Food at the cafe and hotel are very good and huge protions. I eat so much those two meals I haven't been out for dinner yet!
I haven't said THAT much about the food. But hey, I had some good Schnitzle for lunch, with pommes! So there. Surprisingly nough, there are so many small beweries that I have yet to see Hacher Pschorr or St. Pauli... Becks is everywhere!
Thanks for the note and pass along any Lions news to my yahoo account OK? I'm SO out of the loop!
BOBBY! You know I miss that the most! Funny thing is, if you tried that now, it would be 8am, and I'd already be at work! How sad... :(
Hope all is well in Fraser FD... Stay Safe
Weather has been good really. Cool at night and in the morning, but must be near the mid 60's and sunny every day except late last night into this morning.
I'll go into detail and post pics soon, as for the tv, I get 500 channels of CRAP! only about 10/15 in English and they are either news or televangelists. UGH
Good to hear from you too! Hope all is well and everyone is still there. Oh by the way, there is a couple vans here sold by Mitzubishi that have REAR facing seats standard... hahaha
How do you say, "where is the fire station?" hehehe actually I did find a paid-on-call dept but haven't made it there yet.
sorry, no internet at the appartment. Working on that.
HI Paula and Ernie!!
Happy Easter to you as well. I took a short trip to Mainz just last weekend. I don't know that I saw St. Stephens though, but I will make sure I do next time. It is only a 5 min train ride from me so I plan to go there alot. I've heard that it is the wine capital of Germany! I also found a champaigne producer nearby that I am going to tour one of these weekends. I'll be sure to send home some samples for you guys.
PS you'd fit in great here!
I tried calling you back for over an hour and kept geting a busy signal. Hope you're feeling better. I'll try calling again this weekend.
Frankfurt Airport... it's a 20min trian ride to Wiesbaden which is where I'm staying. I'd love the visit... bring a air matress though, all I have is a bed and a kitchen table with 2 chairs. :)
I have access - limited - at work. still not back at the apartment.
Very nice, out from under Uncle Joe's watchful eye! Take care. I hope everyone still has a job there!
