Meet you at the Fountain for a pint...

Hi there! 
Thanks for stopping by. 
After yesterday's busy TV Day here in Germany, 
Dave and I had a lazy day in Munich.
The sun was shining on the Marienplatz.
See the little figures which come out to play on the hour?


The Germans were out in force, soaking up the sun and the beer this morning. 
Well, it is Fasching !
Carnival Time!




Bit nippy for sitting outside for us, so we found an underground chocolate heaven:
The Milka Museum!


Dave nearly fell into the Lilac Cow Display, which was mildly amoooosing....


So back out into the bracing sunshine.
Couldn't help but notice a little gathering around a fountain at the Viktualien Market square...


Puts a completely different spin on the expression, "see you down the Fountain for a pint"
Very literal, eh!
And you can't miss me - I'll be wearing Canary yellow tights!!


So there we are. A funny little insight into a sunny Friday in the centre of Munich. 
Now if they could just try to look as if they were having fun! 

See you on the flipside!

Love
Barb xxxx

  15. Hi Barb,
    Glad you're feeling well enough to do some sightseeing, as well as work on the TV. Mind you, it takes a brave woman to wear tights of that particular shade of yellow. Dave wouldn't lose you, that's for sure haha.
    Safe journey back xxx

We have the Trade Show Sunday/Monday..We are not exhibiting, but have a bit of business to attend to !! Nearly time to fly, thanks for all your concern and kindness.. She'll be fine , if she listens to me ! La la la. xx

    1. I did wonder if a wee bit of retail therapy would help!!!
      Sounds like you're doing a really good job looking after Barbara, well done.
      Let us know if the patient isn't doing as she's told and we'll tell her for you!!!
      And let's all hope that you don't catch it! xx

  27. Hi Barbara. Sorry I haven't commented all week but life has been a bit hectic, ending in our 3rd grandchild arriving yesterday, a gorgeous boy. Sorry, just want to share the miracle of a new life arriving safe and sound : )
    I am glad that you are feeling just a little better, you could have done without having to go to Germany etc though. Please rest up as much as you can.
    Dave, you are as talented as Barabra, I loved your poem, and the cow comments : )
    Please take good care of youselves, both of you. x
