With my broken German I assured her that all was okay and nobody had died. American women wear black because it makes them appear thinner.
I have to laugh every time I glance at the lovely vase of funeral flowers on my dining room table.
Second, is that Manuela, my other neighbor, has a new bike. We usually walk our dogs together, but now she has the crazy notion that it is better to take them with our bikes. In her broken English she calls it, "driving the bikes". This is definitely a workout! Though going up hill is a cinch with them on the leash. I can say this isn't the safest way to exercise your dogs, but it does wear them out.
She insisted we drive the bikes before I was truly finished with this painting-so I will touch it up tomorrow.
