Charms # 8

***

Taking a look back at my charm bracelet, to remember what all the little charms were, and for what memories they bring.

***

These next 3 charms on my bracelet are from when we lived in Germany, back in 1972.

There is Furth, which is the town we lived in. It is in the state of Bavaria, and is right next to Nuremberg.

The 2nd charm is from Garmisch/Partenkirchen. It is a ski resort in Bavaria.

Last is one from Zugspitze. This is located by the town of Garmisch, up in the mountains. It is the highest peak in Germany, at 9,718 ft. (2,962 m). We rode a cable car up to the top, where there was a gift shop. We also walked out onto a frozen solid lake. It was so cold, I couldn’t even feel my feet.

“Please Introduce Yourself”

Good day! Happy to have you visit!

We are a small collection of pitchers. We are also small. We used to belong to the nice lady’s granny. She collected little pitchers to set on her what-not shelves. The nice lady had given her two of us, and inherited the other ones pictured here. I don’t know what happened to all the rest of our crew that resided with granny. I suppose the other grandchildren received some to take to their houses.

Hi, I’m the tall one on the left. I came from Germany. The nice lady bought me as a souvenir from the city she lived in, Furth, Germany. I was mailed across the ocean to meet her granny and the other pitchers there.

Aloha! I’m here on the far right. I come from Hawaii. I was sent to granny by the nice lady, when she spent some time in Honolulu, HI. It was across another ocean that I came. I was happy to meet everyone.

Hey, don’t forget us! We’re in the middle. We came from somewhere, too. Pretty little rose pitcher was here when I got here. I came from Colorado…the Royal Gorge. I’m sorry, I don’t know who sent me to granny, but it may have been the nice lady’s mom. I know she and the nice lady and her family visited the beautiful gorge many years ago, and must have took me along when they went back home. I was happy to be given to granny, as she loved all her pitcher collection.
We will say good-bye for now. We live with the nice lady, in the hutch that her uncle built. 🙂

A to Z BLOG CHALLENGE…..APRIL 8, 2014……LETTER G

A to Z BLOG CHALLENGE……LETTER G

Thanks for visiting! Comments welcome. Happy Reading!

GERMANY

In 1972 we lived in Germany. My husband was in the Army, and was stationed there. We lived in an apartment on the economy, with other service families.

After flying in to Frankfurt, we took a train to our new home in Furth/Nuremberg. It was a bit of a culture shock, as I’d never been out of the U.S. before. Our place was across from a beautiful city park. We’d go there to walk around, watch people riding bikes, and see the ducks in the pond. There was also a miniature golf course there, which we’d play sometimes.

We got used to the cobblestone streets, and sometimes I’d take a taxi to the commisary, laundry, or PX. The taxis were mostly Mercedes, and very nice.

I’d walk around the city looking in the stores, shopping, and for a treat, get pomme frites in little cone containers, and maybe a bratwurst. A really good place to get a broasted chicken, was at the Weinerwald restaurant. I’ve never since had chicken that was as good as their’s.

We sometimes rode the trolley or the train into Nuremberg, which wasn’t very far from our house. Once, we toured the historical Nuremberg Castle. It was amazing to think of all the history made in there long ago.

I really enjoyed my time in Germany. It is such a beautiful country.
