While my mom and dad are here in Germany my dad has managed to defy the rules of space and time and appear in his local paper. w00t! We are having lots of fun here. We have drunk lots of Glühwein and eaten lots of bratwurst. We’ve done quite a bit of keeping the Irish pub in business as well. We are all on a first name basis with Dan the bartender/waiter. I will have more details later.
