Geo: 46.4242, 7.4731Ian met us at the station. We went to a cafe for coffee, even though we were starving ... but Monika was getting ready for work.

My sister Sue, my nephew Brendan and niece Alyssa, and her mother-in-law Vovo came for a visit in the Spring following our move to Brussels.

In early May 1978 my Mom flew from Thailand to be with us for several weeks. I took her and Linda on a business trip to Jever Air Base, a German base in northern Germany that the USAF would use in wartime. We stayed and ate a small gasthaus. While eating, the landlord’s teenage kids, Jenny and Jurgen, noticed we spoke English. Soon we were helping them do their English homework. The next day while I was at the German air base, they took my Mom and Linda on a tour of the town. It was freezing cold and they insisted everyone have ice cream. In German the J is pronounced as a Y, so we will always remember the kindness of Yenny and Yurgen from Yever. After my meetings, we drove back to Ramstein via ... read more
