Random thoughts...

I was at a restaurant the other day and when my meal came, I picked up my fork, took a bite and upon returning the gnawed on carrot to my plate, the waitress ran up behind me, took my plate and ran off without a word. Hmmm. Startled a bit. She came back about 20 min later with the same salad, with a few more things on top, again, without a word. Yay Germans.

Everybody in my 3-4 year old dance class had to pee today. We spent most of the class in the bathroom. Fantastic.

My cat has become fascinated with the Easter eggs I hung from the artificial tree I have. He has removed 50% of them by means of leaping off the arm chair sitting next to the tree and grabbing hold of the branches. It's a sight to behold.

Germany is much more bicycle friendly than anywhere I've been in the states. Who needs a car anyway. If only it didn't rain so much here.

For the first time in my life I saw a whole rainbow. Not just part of it...It was a complete bow with brilliant color. I'll post a picture. I think I took about a dozen.

The man and I accidentally ended up at a parish council meeting for our church on post (another story in itself). After two beers the priest leading the meeting proceeded to run around the table (of twelve people) killing all of the 1/2 dozen flies enjoying dinner with us by means of his stocking cap.

Speaking of Catholics, I'm currently watching a story on CNN about electronic security precautions for the Conclave. Folks--can't you just wait a few days! Patience is a virtue! For Pete's sake. Or should I say, Peter's sake.....That was bad, okay, I'm done now.
