June 2019 Things

It’s hot. I recorded 36°C on my balcony this afternoon. Traveling on public transport you see most people staring into their smartphones – as usual – but now wearing shorts, vests and summer T-Shirts. Since my last post I have had a number of visitors, consumed ‘Kaffee und Kuchen’, met Peter and Andre at their nice house in Alt Landsberg and sipped a few glasses of sparkling wine to keep me cool!  June has many usual things before I move into holiday mood in July.

Who has a birthday in June? Nicholas Bolton. starts us off with his birthday in West Yorkshire with his wife and family on the 3rd. Teresa P. has her birthday in Berlin on the 23rd. That is it! Best wishes to both and have a great day with family and friends.

This month has many more anniversaries. Some sad and some funny. We start with the death of Peter Hartstein on the 5th in 2014. He was a member of my ‘Muggelsee Gang’ before moving to China. My iMac will be 12 years old on the 6th. It still works but I can’t update anything. I am thinking of putting a Linux system into it but I need more advice from Thorsten. The 19th is a special day. My father would have been 107 on that day and my mother 101. Yes, they shared the same birthday. On the 25th, Hermann would have been 82. I miss exploring the area with him on day excursions which he really enjoyed.
