Christmas is coming

December 24, 2011

Last year we had a marvelous tree and I had hoped for a similar one this year. Well I had the hope but as more and more people start buying their tree weeks upfront I only found some leftovers.

But I must say, at the end he doesn’t look too bad. For sure I will hear the coming week the obvious remarks “too small”, “there is a hole” “not full enough” “last year tree held 30 candles, this year only 19”, etc, etc, etc.

Can somebody explain me why women always complain about the tree but refuse to buy one themselves??

Well, my last hotel stay this year and quite honestly, it was a long but successful year but enough is enough. Nevertheless, nice to finish this year in my favourite Holiday Inn at Hannover Airport πŸ™‚

as usual, paper hanging correct and after one hour in the room Β there is the knocking on the door as they then bring you your little plate with chocolates and fruits πŸ™‚

So in total now at 291 correct hanging papers, looking forward to hit the 300 soon πŸ™‚

Wine which made me laugh :)

My wife got a bottle of Italian wine which made me laugh.

The wine is called FOC which in my terminology stands for “Free Of Charge”

You think they give this away? πŸ™‚

Just before the festive days I got another visit to Langenhagen in my favourite Holiday Inn and of course the paper was hanging proper which brings it to 290. Ten more to go to get another milestone πŸ™‚

and again I was surprised when they knocked on my door to bring me some sweets and fruits πŸ™‚



Finally :)

December 13, 2011

it took a while but today finally my new car arrived. For 2 months I had a Mercedes C 220 CDI which my daughter really loved. This resulted today in her comment to my new car; “this is the most ugliest car I have ever seen!!”…

I think the little one is spoiled πŸ™‚

now the fun part. The car was delivered by a retired person as they always do in Germany.

This man wanted to drive of my property but at the same time my neighbor (age 82) also wanted get out…

I was sitting in my new car and watched what happened as both were driving backwards, going forward and then simultanously driving backwards. This was the moment when I started hammering the horn to stop them. It didn’t help as they hit eachother.


the best part was the fact, that they then both drove off without looking at the damage. I guess they didn’t hear it πŸ˜€


nice explanation ;)
