the story behind the banner-image
Thursday, January 25, 2018
The new banner image I posted is of Cochem Castle. It's in Germany, along the Mosel River and the lovely wine country.
The picture is taken from down at the Mosel promenade and is about a block from the town court house. The part that is in the large picture (my profile picture) is of the castle with it's part Cochem-Sehl under it. It's a foggy morning and it is so beautiful if you ever have the chance to see in real life. About a block over from the court house is a business school, where I went for two years and about a mile back away from the castle is the business located where I apprenticed before I met my hubby. So this few is an old friend of mine. ... one I sorely missed and my hubby found the image for me from a friend on face-book's photos.
He keeps in touch with many of his buddies who were stationed nearby in the beginning of 1980's and many of them have still friends there and family as well, like I do. In fact my brother lives on that line of houses somewhere along the Mosel promenade and is dealing with flood at the moment. My dad tells me however it is not as bad as it's been in previous years... yet.
