Jim and I have just returned from a ten-day trip to Germany with an opportunity to visit, among other places, the villages of our ancestors: Vreschen-Bokel and Rommerskirchen (Nettesheim/Butzheim).
This was a life-long dream of mine, and, like Bloody Mary in South Pacific, “I really did have a dream come true.”
Now there is a bit of jet lag, lots of emails, bills, laundry and all the parts of daily life clamoring for attention. I’ll be recording details of the trip in future posts.
Note to Jane and Jens, Anke and Hinrich: You were wonderful!
