I don’t really know who coined this phrase, but somehow I like to think that I had something to do with it.
It was right after WWII in 1946, in Frankfurt, Germany, when an American soldier told me that he and his friends were going every weekend dancing. Apparently, it was a dance cafe which catered mostly to the American occupation forces.
“I like to know,” he said. “How it comes that all the German girls are so pretty?”
“Hu?” I had never heard such a nonsense.
“Yes,” he maintained. “Ask any of my buddies,and they will tell you the same.”
I was almost tempted to ask his friends what it exactly was that triggered their observation, because I had no clue what an American girl looked like, when it dawned on me.
All of the American soldiers were absolutely impressive in their starched, meticulously pressed uniforms. A long cry away from the dilapidated clothing of German boys in the same age group. It was only natural that the German girls flocked to the places where they could meet a good looking guy. But, that wasn’t all there was to it. The girls also had to look their part.
“You know it’s simple”. I told the soldier. “The ugly ones know who they are. They are staying home.”
Now, I have to admit that times were simple then. Nobody ripped you apart for saying the obvious.
However, the phrase still holds true: “The ugly ones know who they are.”
So glad to hear you are well, eagerly looking forward to the next book in the series!
Do you have release date?
No, not exactly.
The book is right now with my VA who is making some changes in the cover design.
I estimate about another week until it will be released.
However, if you are on my mailing list, you will be notified by my VA.
If you are not on the list, don’t worry, because I will announce it, here on my website, as soon as I know the exact date.
Thanks for your continued interest.
Wishing you the best,
I am very excited to hear that you will be releasing a new book soon. I look forward to reading it. I guess it will be “time to bake another cake” soon. I hope you are doing well.
All the Best,
Thanks for your enthusiasm and your support.
It will be a few more days until the release, but you are right: I will bake another cake.
It’s about time! In order to reward myself, I plan to visit a snowmobile race event today.
The driveway is clear (courtesy from our neighbor, Chris, who kept it clear all winter long)
and the temp is in the thirties.
Take good care,
I Hope you enjoyed the Snowmobile race. Im Happy to hear that there are still neighbors who are willing to help each other out. What kind of cake will you bake this time? Do you have a favorite?
Well, David, this time, I try to keep it simple.
Maybe I am just tired, but somehow I don’t feel like baking.
Just a slice of whole wheat toast, covered with plenty of honey will do it for today.
Now, next week is a different story.
Will let you know when this happens.
