My Village ...

It's been a while since I've posted. Sorry! I can't really blame it all on "real life" (though that is a big part), I just haven't really felt much like posting. I haven't even uploaded all my Prague pictures, but those I did upload, you can enjoy by clicking on my homepage! I know some of the pictures Lowandslow will go crazy over! lol

So many events have taken place lately.... most good. During my vacation I had another lovely visit with my ex-sister-in-law as well as ex-mother-in-law.

This past weekend was filled with events. Last night my flying club celebrated their 60th anniversary. It was great seeing many of my old friends again, and they seemed really happy to see me again. I felt really welcomed and "at home". My village is having a 4-day party and it included opening the bell tower of the church, which I of course took advantage of and would like to share the following pictures with you.

This is a view from the tower which shows my apartment building.It's the top floor under that redish roof.


This picture gives a pretty good impression of the area I live in.....and as you see, we had GREAT weather today!

Here are a few pictures from the church and bell tower....



engraved in this bell is the word "Liebe", or "Love"

there are three bells all together.... and they ring EVERY quarter hour! And sometimes for a full 5 minutes!

Inside the church from the organ balcony....
More pictures of the quaint little village I live in can be viewed here.
I hope you all enjoyed this view into my world.... and hopefully I'll get back in the mood to blog more often again.

Visiting Prague

Last weekend I went for a 4 day trip to Prague! My first day was raining and windy, but Sunday through Tuesday were great! I took about 400 pictures and, since life has so many other issues, I haven't been able to work on them as much as I want. But, as a teaser, her are a couple of photos I took....


More to come.... when I find time.
