Rudi Salvermoser !, I am VERY happy to see that you are still alive and kicking; as for short term memory loss, I know what you mean.
And . . . .my appreciation for your longevity marriage, I wonder if that has something to do with "Meine Ehre heisst treue".
Rudi Welz has quite a record too, and from the looks of it, he is not calling it quits for some time.
and I am happy that my wife permits me to stick around, and keep putting up with me.
And for those out there who think that is too schmalzy, No, it has not been a "rose garden" all the time, but as Loes and I were married for "time and all eternity" in a Mormon temple, I think I could not hope for a better half to spend all that time with, than She.
Rudi Welz,! I got your e-mail THANK YOU !!!!! I have become quite a procrastinator lately, and as one of my grandmothers used to say: "Morgen, Morgen, niemals Heute, sagen alle faule Leute" . so i am ashamed that I have neglegted you for so many weeks.
I am VERY happy that Erika was able to come to visit your daughter; I hope that she (and you) will have the time of your life.
As for other good friends on this and other forums, the procrastination also worked against you. So 'mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa" (now get a dictionary to figure that one out)
Your truly is still kicking, a little bruised and dented now and then,
here and there, but life goes on.
