hallo ist reicher junger Doktor, mein Name heidi

In Germany, I go by Heidi...I've also started a nasty coffee habit. Not this low octane Starbucks but the high octane Italian stuff that will put hair on your chest and give you the shakes, real coffee.
Tomorrow my mom flies in and the real fun begins. First stop for mom, the restaurant that serves snitchel 100 different ways...
whatever does not kill us gives us material, this is my mantra.

POMPEI...and the livings easy

I wish we could all be a little more like this dog who lives in Pompeii...that's the town that got wiped out by a volcano almost 2000 years ago...but the dog seemed to have survived. I think the diet of sticks and pine cones has something to do with it.

I Can't Believe I Ate the Whole Thing!

I might look into some cardio in the near future, so far Italy meals consists of A Pizza and gelato...and then some pasta and more gelato. And then a sensible dinner, like pizza and gelato.

Mini - Pope

If you look really close, you'll see the Pope in between Sandra and Katie...Oh!

I find the German children to be rather furry looking.

Tanks For The Good Time!

Back from shows at 3 different bases and now off to Rome in the morning...I'm going to fly cause the tank had to stay here. If you see on the news that Sandra Bullock is in Rome, just know that I made it safely.

3 trains and I made it to the next German base all by myself and I didn't cry once!
Well, not if you don't count that one time but I think my eyes were just watering from the man sitting behind me.
Club last night was very fun and tonight we are having a comedy cafe....I'm the comedy part.

Aye Judy Bird!

9 more hours in Scotland then it's off for a week of shows in Germany.
Ah Germany, finally a place where I can understand the English!

I've learned loads of Scottish phrases, like:
There's a buncha NEDS.
Geis yer Jacket.
Nice Car Mate, out.

I also learned that the Scottish don't like to stand during mass, they like the kneelers, it only took me a few times before I wasn't the only one standing other than the Priest. Ah and wee Alec, he'll be Pope before we know it, they grow up so fast.

They are lovely people here, I know because they feed me and gave me shelter and helped develop a hot toddy problem. Also at anytime during my time here they could have dropped me off at the side of the road and I would have been lost forever...Judy who?

Cheers (not Sam Malone kind, the other kind)

Hey, You On the Bike!

When they say, "No cycling on the pier", they mean it.

Forget about the Loch Ness monster, it's the swans in Loch Lomand that will bite a wee babies head off!
