…enjoyed getting to know my husband’s relatives in Germany. Here we are on a walk with three little doggies in Stadtpark.

And here is the European breakfast we enjoyed every morning.  We had multigrain rolls, 5-minute eggs, cheeses and meats, tea and coffee and juice.

We met more members of the family on our last evening in Germany.  It was so nice to see Uschi with her grandchildren and their friends.

It was a long flight, but we made the journey safely home. Feeling a little jet lagged, I continued my schedule of events including Toastmasters on Wednesday and HCAT Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on Thursday night.  Mary Greendale, who produces more programming than anyone else in Holliston handed out letter openers in the shape of a heart for everyone. I met some new volunteers and enjoyed the festivities.
