Unlimited package


Son: “Why don’t they use their turn signal?”
Me: “They didn’t buy the unlimited package.”
Son: “Huh?”
Me: “When you buy a car, you’ll have to let them know how many times you want to use your turn signal. They put different bulbs in. The more you want to use them, the more expensive the blinker is. They probably bought the cheap package. You can only blink so many times.”
Son, after a short pause and somewhat skeptical look: “What do we have?”
Me: “Unlimited package.”

Family, then and now ...

And what does your ancestral home look like? No, I didn't jet to Germany over the weekend; my brother and family visited the "Schloss" last week. — at Schloss M√ľnchweiler.

If you're curious, here is an excellent link and more about the Roechling Family. Yes, I'm related to these folks, on my mother's side:
