Just Got Back From Germany
Spent 2 weeks with my son and his family in Germany. Got to do the Grandpa thing!! Spoiled three grand kids rotten!!
Did the tourist thing (not you Chico!!) for a few days. Rented a car and drove to Munich and toured the Dachau Concentration Camp, just north of Munich.Then back down the Autobahn to Fussen to tour the Palace of King Ludwig II of Bavaria--the Schloss Neuschwanstein! Schloss Neuschwanstein is the most photographed building in Germany! Also in Fussen is the Schloss Hohenschwangau, palace of Ludwig's father, Maximillian II!

Returning to Vilseck the next day, I got to fulfill a bucket list item-------Driving Down The Autobahn Like A Wildman!! Yep, I took that Enterprise Rental Car (a turbo charged Ford Fiesta) down Autobahn A-9 at 190 kilometers per hour. Translated to real world figures, that is 118 mile per hour!!! Not the fastest I have ever driven, but this was the fastest I've ever driven LEGALLY!! I was passed by several BMW's and Audi's like I was standing still!!! When they flash those lights, get the hell out of their way!!! I even passed a Polizei car! They never looked twice. I LOVE THIS STUFF!!
All in all had a hell of a good time. However, I did drag home the German Grunge, a virus of some sort and have been sick since Thursday. All I can say is that Germany made me snotty, or snottier!!! Drugs are working to clear this Deutcher Disorder up as quick as possible. The Huns can't keep me down!!

Obama called me a CLINGER! Terrorists call me an INFIDEL!
Hillary calls me DEPLORABLE! Trump calls me an AMERICAN!!
