at all happening

Even if you leave home early, arriving at work when there is only a rumor of sunlight above the horizon, a farewell luncheon in the middle of the day sort of tears a hole in the schedule.


In case you can’t read the sign – it reads either Alte Feuerwache or De Nico’s (depending). I am not sure of the significance of the naked young man with the frog that stands just on the other side of the front entrance, but he is kind of cute (and the restaurant is Italian without frogs on the menu.)


One of our great SGTs is leaving in a week for Walter Reed.


Catching a picture that doesn’t have name tags is a real challenge. She has a great sense of humor and will be sorely missed in the lab.

Me? This proves that I actually come out of my lair on special occasions. Because the SGM really wanted to try my camera, I turned him lose for a while. The unfortunate result is that I actually was captured in pixels.


Books and Audio Books

Blood Orchid – Stuart Woods – has finished on the CD player and The Big Four by Agatha Christie has now replaced it in the car.

In print – I read Killer Weekend – the new Ridley Pearson thriller from the library. Plus Three is a Crowd by D B Borton. While I can’t say that I really appreciated Cat Caliban as a sleuth, this book was obviously well researched with the plot relating to the past anti-Viet Nam war era being all too real to someone who lived through it.


(and no, no knitting today either)

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
