Well, not quite yet. But starting today, I will be away for a fortnight. It is my and O.k.'s usual first half of May holiday, and this year, it will start with the village May fête again - for the first time since 2019.
I still can not imagine being in a large tent with so many people for HOURS, but I guess I can always wear a mask when I feel unsafe. Of course, O.K. and I are involved; he's been helping setting things up since 9:00 this morning, and will play with the village band while I will be handing out food from behind the counter. (Provided my trains will be on time!)
This is going to be our "holiday" for today and tomorrow. On Tuesday, we'll be celebrating O.K.'s birthday - no big do, just the family. And finally, next Sunday (May 8), we will be driving deeper and further down into the Black Forest, to spend a week at a hotel where we've been before.
That hotel has no WiFi other than in the manager's office, and the entire valley has no mobile signal - therefore, don't wonder where I am when I won't be posting or commenting for a while.
The picture here was taken during an after work walk with my sister last week. It was such a beautiful day that we decided to have a shandy at a beer garden in nearby Asperg. We spent a couple of very relaxing and pleasant hours together, catching up with each other after our usual regular walks had not been possible for a while.
