Anyhow...I decided to get into character for my own upcoming trip over to Germany and the Netherlands. I haven't quite mastered any of the foreign (well..foreign to me) languages yet but I am great at universal sign languages.
Note to Overland Park, Olathe and Leawood Police Departments...Hey guys! You have missed more than a few opportunities to issue "improper lane usage" tickets. I am just curious if you guys are OK?
BUT...Over the following 42 years, I have worn them down. I am the acid rain that chips away at their porous limestone. I have gone from not being allowed to hold my babies within the Dutch church to being able to be buried in their cemetery. Yep, there is going to be one little Irish lass layin' among the resident (albeit dead) Dutch. Talk about making big strides in ingratiating myself. But, it's sort of a shame really, that for total inclusion, I have to die. But a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. (BTW....I came to really like his family and assume they reciprocate on most days.)
As to my upcoming trip...I have, in fact, been to both Germany and the Netherlands before but not for an extended period of time, nor have I gone to the area of the country where his relatives still live. I think maybe that sign language might come in handy.
So for today...Crabby Pants and I are morphing into being more Deutsch-like wishing everyone here:
And to hubby...over in Germany/Netherlands:
