Hi Rainer

How quickly a week goes by, especially when its a week off 🧐 But it sounds like you were quite busy while you were in Ahrweiler. I forgot to ask if you did manage to “fire up the BBQ” 😳

The pics you sent about the doors that the builders “installed” or as I mentioned, made a “dos dinner” of it. I can understand your uncles, it would drive me crazy too to see such bad “workmanship”🤔 But it di give some interesting new vocabulary ☝️

Hope you have a relaxing weekend and looking forward to our weekly chat next Friday 👍

Steve 😊
