…I consider worth sharing.
Today, when I was about to leave the house, my mum walked towards me patted my belly and said in an approving tone something like: "What a handsome belly!". Good news then. I obviously carry a not to be overlooked bulge but it is at least handsome. (Have I ever mentioned that when mum and dad met my dad was overweight already? Seems she likes it…). Probably I should drink less beer and work more.
Later the day, when my mum and I watched the football match England-Sweden (very nice match btw) she told me about my ancestors which was even more interesting than the football match because:
My grand-grand-grandfather Alois Gallery emigrated to the United States of America and became an American Citizen in the state of New Jersey in 1891. He had a daughter named Anna Gallery who returned to Germany and married Raimund Keller, my grand-grandfather, and therefore became my grand-grandmother.[The legend (as told by a sister of my grandfather to my mother) is that she had problems with the German language (i.e. with the dialect spoken in the Saarland) and therefore the upbringing of the children was mostly done by the evil, unmarried, communist brother of my grand-grandfather – known as "the uncle"]. It is a bit far fetched, but still: if I ever make it to visit the USA I won't be the first one of my family to go there.
The rest of the day: nothing special, but: GERMANY IS IN THE NEXT ROUND OF THE WORLD CUP!! Unfortunately, we will have to beat Sweden to go to the quarter finals…My congratulations of course to Sweden and England for making it to the next round of the world cup!!
