Christian, me and my son had just arrived back in Berlin the other day. Sitting in front of the computer, I was sorting the pictures, we took on our vacation, recalling the recent days. First we had been to Nuremberg, where we did stay at my parents home. Then, we had moved on to the family week end, Christian's dad organizes once a year, inviting all his children and their folks. Each year he picks a different town in Germany for this great family tradition! I looked at all the photographs of parents, aunts, nieces and nephews, brothers and sisters when suddenly Mo showed up, clapping her little hands whilst jumping up and down next to my keyboard.
"Hey, did you know, we had been featured at Piewacket blog?" she called.
"Sure!" I said. "At last, I answered Lara's questions for the interview!"
Mo scowled at me. "Oh, the interview!" she hissed. Then she reached for my left pinkie and gave it a pinch.
"Don't pretend it hurts, it can't! Because I'm just an i-ma-gi-na-ti-ve friend, you know!"
"Wait!" I said "You can not read nor write, even less in English, isn't it?"
"Rattle can!" she nodded.
"Rattle, the boy, I was in vacation with lately." Mo rolled her eyes and went on: "Whilst you were having fun with Mr. Bargain, can you remember?"
I took a deep breath.
"However" she continued more peaceable, "Lara wrote such nice things about us. And she wasn't the only one. Not to mention, all the wonderful comments we've got. Don't you think it's time to say "thank you", time to give something back. It's not long ago, we thought, nobody would take any interest in our chatter at all!"
I had to agree.
"Can't we do a little giveaway?" she smiled. "It certainly has to be something small, concerning shipping costs and your budget." she reflected. "What about flower garlands? They are lightweight and easy to pack and one never can have enough." Then she took a look at some pictures I just had moved to a different folder on my desktop. "Did you meet those people at the family week end?" she laughed. "By the way, where did it take place this time?"
"Not too far away from Nuremberg, at..."
"Wait!" she interrupted me, "Let our readers guess, we'll have a little riddle! One flower garland for the first who knows, where you have stayed!"
"But, isn't this a little unfair? Germans might be able to tell easily!", I argued.
"All right. Additionally, we'll raffle a second flower garland among all the participants in general."
"OK" I said, "Let's try!"
So, below are the pictures. If you want to take part at our little giveaway, just comment on this post. One garland goes to the participant who is the first to answer, where I took these pictures. If no answer is right, it will go to the participant who's guess is closest. The second garland will be ruffled among all participants. We'll announce the winners on the 25th of August.
Now, I hope there are at least two persons in need for a lovely flower garland, about 1,70 m (5 feet or 6.93 inches) long, crocheted by me.
Edit (on August, 25th):
The giveaway and comments are closed now. The winners will be announced soon. :-)
