and one to go.
And thanks to some lovely techs at Kleber Caserne I didn’t waste hours or a trip.
Remember that incident in Akureyri that involved me, a waterfall, a hike and a phone that vanished taking it’s case and contents with it?
I am still working my way down the list of replacements. I have heard from Lufthansa that they are sending me a new card. My Bahn card arrived, now I just have to figure out which safe place I put it in before tomorrow…. The VA sent me a new card. That left me without my DD2 and my drivers license.
George drove me to Kleber where they were willing to sign me in with his ID and my passport. Got to the office to read a sign that says walk-ins didn’t start till 1300. It was 1000.
Figuring – what the hey? I took a number anyway, pretending I was looking for something else. When the guy called my number (I was first in line after the current customers at the desk) he said it wasn’t a problem. Did my new ID and we were out the door.
Arriving back in Heidelberg at 1205, the Drivers License office closed at 1200. Tomorrow….
Then I had the bright idea of picking up some cross-stitch supplies.
Guess what? German’s apparently don’t routinely do cross-stitch. At least not from kits. I looked at both Kaufhofs, Wolle Rodel, Idee, 3 fabric, quilt and craft places. No fabric except for 11 ct at one store and the cheap quality at that.
Ah, well. Guess I will be knitting on the next cruise after all….
