I don't know if we will go there, but I found a nice hotel in Elba, Italy. Elba is a small island about one hour by ferry from the Italian coast. Juergen wants to go there. I thought we could rent a hotel for 2 nights and check Elba out. Maybe as a birthday gift to Juergen? I don't think the kids will like it because there are no soccer fields. Jessica does not like boat rides, but I think a one hour ferry ride is OK. Oh the places we would go if we did not have kids!
I wonder if my brother Rick could come to Germany and paint a mural of this terracotta house on the wall behind my vegetable garden? We could re plaster the wall, paint it terracotta, and have him paint windows and shutters and flowers. Wouldn’t that be cool! It's been almost 5 years since Rick was here. Seems right for him to come again! I miss him!
