Cheers, in with a white wine. I wish you could see my view. This hotel is so lovely located in the forest. And the sun is out. Everything is great. My feet held out perfectly today. We visited some really nice places. But also the War Cementry. It is a solemn place, well kept and very beautiful. While we were there the Peace Flame group from the UK came to honour the soldiers. I am now looking at a nice party on the lawn of a group of American and UK veterans (very, very old) and some family of veterans. They are staying in our hotel as the battle of the Rhine (A bridge too far) did take place around here. I toast in honour of all those very young men that gave their life while it wasn’t even their country they were freeing.

yes, a toast to those brave young men; sounds like a special place. Since it's almost 4 and I missed lunch, I am bbquing early while I still have the energy and mixed a drink to carry out the task.

ingrid the pics you posted on FB are amazing, so beautiful.

power-washed the front porch and driveway. ran out of steam so the sidewalks will have to wait. his son asked us to come over for dinner but he declined. got him out of the house for a little bit. he stayed in the car while i ran into shoprite and pet supplies. it looks like it picked him up a bit.

just poured a glass of pinot, cheers!

In with Lager. Will raise my glass to those brave souls. If you have read about Operation Overlord it will give you a sense of the bravery of those who fought at the "bridge too far".

On a more mundane note: looks like I will be homeless. Haven't seen it yet, but the buyers are accepting my latest counter offer. Will see what contingencies they've added. :? .

Cheers,y'all.

I would hardly call that mundane, Shaggy! Congratulations! Here's hoping the rest of the process is smooth sailing.

Thanks, Karen. Hoping that things will fall into place. Have done some homework and the prep to get the place ready helped.

More than two lagers tonight, I Think!

Cheers, y'all!
