Hope you all had a good weekend. Here it has been very wet again, but better than too hot for me!
Today I have another piece to share for Neet's type challenge at AJJ, this time an 8" square piece. I used copies of the old documents to cut out the heads, not the real things!
Today is also Elizabeth's
T sTands for Tuesday link party, so here a warm welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T gang who visit here. We saw this sign in Bonn on Friday, almost at the end of our day out:
And I'm starting at the end of the day because this is where we got the food and drinks we were craving:
This was my dinner - and no, I didn't manage to eat it all, although it was very delicious, so the rest came home in a doggy bag:
The old pub where we ate was evidently Beethoven's pub, as he lived almost next door:
Here we are waiting to start eating, the waiter took the photo. I have my mask under my chin like a bib!

We got seats on the top at the front and could look down on the scenes all round us. During the whole drive we got explanations about the various sights, interspersed with beautiful Beethoven music:
The yellow building is a palace once used by the Bishops and Archbishop of Cologne; today it is part of the University:
The Minster, dating back to the 14th century:
The main station:
The minaret of the Mosque. The wavy lines were created by the rain streaming down the window:
I will show the rest of the photos in my next post.
Some memes to make us smile and think:
Have a great day, take care;
and thanks a lot for coming by!
