the Samsonite repairman is originally from New Jersey, plays standup bass in a jazz combo, was listening to NPR Classical, rides a bicycle and has an MBA. His family is from Bavaria. Typical albuquerque transplant.

And he didn't want anz money but only a postcard from Germany, best would be Bavaria he said.

I gave him CJ's address and telphone number instead - have got now one dozen new repairs for free.

Since Mrs. Walter is lurking here as well (saves telephone costs and the stress of writing emails), I better should have added a couple of :wink: 's to my previous post.

But seriously: he didn't want money but a postcard .... at first.

Ah, Walter. This is for you, honey:

Artist: Deana Carter Lyrics
Song: Brand New Key Lyrics



I rode my bicycle past your window last night
I roller skated to your door at daylight
It almost seems that you're avoiding me
I'm ok alone but you've got something I need

Well, I've gotta brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
I think that we should get together
And try them out ya see
I've been lookin' around a while
You got somethin' for me
Oh, I gotta brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key

I ride my bike, I roller skate, don't drive no car
Don't go too fast, but I go pretty far
For somebody who don't drive I've been all around the world
Some people say I've done all right for a girl
Oh yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, yeah-yeah

I asked your mother if you were at home
She said yes, but you weren't alone
Oh sometimes I think that your avoiding me
I'm ok alone but you got something I need well

I've gotta brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
I think that we should get together
And try them out ya see
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
Oh, I gotta brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
Oh, I gotta brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
Oh, I gotta brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la
Oh, I gotta brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key

All right Walter, I'll send him a postcard from Bavaria (still have some here)
I even have a beer stein here, but for that he needs to fork over a brand
new samsonite set. Laughing

Doesn't Dys have skype, Walter? You can call Mrs. Walter via skype for 1 cent/minute. All you need is www.skype.com and a headset.

Miss Letty, I think Walter and Dys will visit you too

Bush has a plan???

Anyone seen any evidence of it??


We should reduce the talk of locks, lest it brings up the topic of bagels! Funny people, bagel eaters!

Speaking of locks, puts me in mind of the lock our President-- with his powerful foresight and wise planning-- has on victory in Iraq!

Well, Walter has gone and done it! He arrived and brought 50 to 60 mph winds with him in the early evening. Such strong winds are very rare. Lots of dust blown everywhere. Albuquerque lost many trees and some structure damage. No damage at my home. My outdoor furniture got blown around.

The luggage is open, the repair man said it just took a determined attitude and brute force. He also said "this was made in Belgium!" Walter just nodded "yes"

It was a sand storm, specially arranged by the New Mexico Tourist board, Abuquerque branch, to delight their visitors and show especially Walter some attraction usually not seen by others, e.g. Britons and Bavarian-Californians.

Some French were lucky to have seen some, not in NM but in a nearby state...

I hope you enjoy, Walter!

I made the mistake of leaving my front door open during Walter's wind-sand storm. 50 to 60 mph winds.

I just finished vacumning up a layer of sand dust from a large area of my tile floors around the front door. Every furniture surface is covered with dust. Everything outside is covered with it. Picked up lots of garbage blown into my front and rear yards before the dogs found it. No tree damage.

I woke up with a pesky case of laryngitis. Just what I need.
