Spring has come! Actually it has been here for a while, since my hyacinths and daffodils started sprouting in early February and now they are just about to bloom. What a mild winter we’ve had.
My longtime friend Udo contacted me since he was passing through the Frankfurt area and we arranged for a little get-together this past Sunday, which included the notorious “Why don’t you sit on the balcony with me for a photo?” Needless to say, this little tick of mine has attracted quite a few visitors.
I made Krautspudel (a very Franconian dish) for dinner, we caught up with the past few years in which we had little contact, and rekindled our friendship.

Having friends is so important (next to good health, such as sitting on the balcony in fairly cool weather…). This one’s for you, Udo.
