Have a good start in the new week! I'm hoping here that the weather
will not be quite as chaotic as in the last one, but
I suppose we have to take what we get.
For Art Journal Journey
, maps, I have another piece made at the beginning of the month, although I am convinced that the vote for the Brexit in England is NOT the way to happiness, and seems to have split the country. I was pleased to see that the Scots and Londoners all voted to stay.
On Sunday we had a few hours of dry weather in the morning, so I walked along the Rhine, still very full, and then through our little town, where some events were taking place. At the thrift shop 'One World' there was a flea market, with lots of things to look at and finger and buy....
Here they were selling coffee, cakes, drinks and fresh waffles. I had a coffee,
so a big hello to all of the T Gang here, as I am linking to Elizabeth's
T Stands for Tuesday tomorrow. The smell of the waffles made me really hungry!
And I bought myself this lovely handbag/ rucksack for 4,50€,
almost new, and with strong leather clasps and decorations, so I was very happy
with my 'find'.
Raincoats and wellies here are the correct Sunday clothes for all who
move about on foot. The orthopedic hospital is in the background - the thrift shop is in the hospital grounds:
Bunting is hanging everywhere, as it is 'Schützen Fest' -
Marksmen's Festival, and the 'Schützen' were marching with loud music to their 'bandstand':
This is the little square where they congregate, along with all who want to drink a beer, enjoy a grilled sausage, or just have a coffee and listen to the music:
The musicians were playing good music:
I walked back along the quieter streets:
St George and the Dragon are up on what used to be the 'Ritter' Pub - Ritter means 'Knight':
And it looks like Saint Swidbert is joining in the festivities, holding up the bunting and giving his blessing:
And my quote for today:
'People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do' (Isaac Asimov)
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
