It's great to wish you an incredibly happy birthday from your friends at Piano World Forum.

Tuesday, May 27th and John are to celebrate!

And, in Germany, I understand you are 9 hours ahead, so we'd best get started right now!

Warm regards!

Betty Patnude

Wow, what a surprise! Thank you all!!! I just turned on my laptop and are having a bit of morning coffee as the sun is climbing over the hills of the Rhein. Really appreciate the kind thoughts. The best to all of you as well. smile

So, I see lots of scurrying about and glimpses of wrapping paper, but everyone is being rather evasive and circumspect. Guess I'll just have to be patient.

I must share that I went to the local Sportsplatz and watched my grandson run a couple thousand meters back and forth. Tired me out just watching.

We've having one of those truly fantastic days which Germany is noted for. Big puffy clouds, with a very translucent haze. Everything is a rich, royal green!

And yes, this morning, I got to play uninterrupted on my daughter's Sauter for several hours. What a great vacation.

Thanks, Jamie. I hope it's as nice across the channel as it is here. Right now, it's about 25 out - just perfect weather.

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes.

If you ever make a Rhein river cruise, and stop at Boppard, grab a meal at the Severus Stube. It's a bit hidden, but it's where many of the locals prefer to take a meal.

Boppard is an old Roman settlement, and true to form, the locals prefer wine to beer, and there are some mighty good vintages available only locally.

Thanks again.
