Harold, I married a German woman with a big family and my father in law is still alive at 93 years old so a lot of German traditions around the holidays. I did not meet her in Germany we met on a motorcycle event in 2000 here in the states that is the only reason I remember the saying. Stay well and Happy new year.

You must have called during my after dinner nap.

Not to worry Sig. I was cleaning out some old voice mails because my box was full and I hit the "CALL" button by mistake.

Hope all had a good Christmas.

Still got some snow. 24 degrees heading for a high around 34 today. Maybe a little more snow tonight.

Shannon, I haven't heard that phrase in 60 years

"Frohliche Weihnachten an alle."

How did you remember that?  And I speak Stat Deutch.  Ensuldigan Bitte, Vo ist mein kupf.  I am impressed you remembered that

Happy New Years to all.

Wishing all of our Cavalry Brothers a healthy and hap[py New Years and just a thought of how General Custer's cavalry went.
