Teaser Tell All


Howdy! Well, it’s not just a Teaser Tell All it’s also a Sammy Whammy update………..first things first – yesterday afternoon I got another big pile of OLD comments and OLD notifications from a lot of your bloggies so I suppose either WordPoop is catching up OR my Whammy worked!


However I also discovered yesterday morning that my bloggy isn’t being posted to Facebook which according to ME (and my dashboard) it SHOULD be doing.  SO, I’m going to do what lotsa others of you have had to do and that’s manually post it there.  Why?  Well because I have a lotsa followers there (on my Mom’s page)  THAT’s why!   Harumph!  Can you tell I’m getting a little short on patience when it comes to WP?

Next – the reason you tuned in here today – the Teaser Tell All………………..WELL – that was quite interesting because more than one of you knew precisely where my Granddad’s photo from pre- World War Two was taken!  Here it is one more time:


And the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER that this was Johanneskirche (St. John Church)  in Stuttgart, Germany  was my friend who has been hoping to win the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER for ages, Doggy from Doggy’s Style!   Woot woot!

The Much Coveted "First Right Guesser" Award....which belongs to DOGGY!

The Much Coveted “First Right Guesser” Award….which belongs to DOGGY!

But as I said, several others of you knew it was this same church OR knew it was in Germany and all of you buddies get this!

The "I Guessed RIGHT!" award......!

The “I Guessed RIGHT!” award……!

Now let me give you a bit of interesting info about this church.  First it’s a Protestant Church built in the 1800s and during World War Two it sustained some damage.  This photo that I had in the Teaser was taken BEFORE World War Two – would you like to see what it looks like today??


They decided to leave the top two sections OFF the tower on the left side of the church as a reminder of the war.   It’s still an incredibly beautiful building in a really beautiful location.  Lots of you thought like I did that it looked like a magic fairy castle…..it’s on a small jutting area of land on the lake so almost looks like its floating.

First of all, the photos were taken by my parents on a Rhine River cruise……..lots of stops along the way on this 8 day cruise and one of the stops was in the delightful town of Rudesheim, Germany…..! 

Here’s the pix again then I’ll tell you who got it right and who got it practically right…………

The top picture is the clockworks museum in Rudesheim – my parents had a tour of that place and LOVED it…..all kinds of neat clocks and other mechanical things to see and they had a swell gift shop!

The bottom photo was the top of the street my parents walked down and on the left was a WONDERFUL beer garden where an “oom pah band” was playing.  We have a photo of that but I figured if I showed that you guys would FOR SURE know it was Germany!
