A Story for Wednesday

Thanks to all who stopped by to join in last Wednesday!

Here's hoping some of you might join me in posting a story with a picture for Wednesday Wit and Wisdom.  The challenge is to post a picture, then write a short story or a poem about the picture.  When you have your story written, you can link up for others to read.  Feel free to also add your picture and story to another link of your choice. The link up is on my WWW page here.


Today I want to share with you a series of pictures and a story.


My name is Hans. My wife Gertrude and I live in a little town in the Black Forest in Germany named Titisee. We actually live along the lake near a hotel where tourists come to visit our little town.  Gertrude makes lovely tatted lace and crochets blankets to sell at the shops on the Main Street of town. I am a clock maker. If you look closely at our home, you will see that there is quite a lot of space, more than Gertrude and I need for sure. So we have a bed and breakfast there and invite folks to come short a stay in the Black Forest. Gertrude is a fabulous cook, and she makes fresh breads, muffins, pancakes and also has a variety of homemade jellies and jams. She also serves dinner to folks around six o'clock. There is sure to be a wonderful roast, lots of potatoes and vegetables. These are all fresh from the produce at the market in town, as we don't have enough space for a garden. Our home always has the most wonderful aromas of fresh breads and Gertrude's cooking!

I've been making clocks for sale uptown for all my life. I'm a wood carver, you see. The works are also made here in Germany, and there are a variety of tones, but the Westminster Chimes are the most popular. Here are a couple of my favorites.

Then, when Gertrude and I have a chance to go for a walk around the lake, we enjoy it even when it is raining.

Won't you come to Germany and the Black Forest and join us there? I can assure you there will be a Black Forest Cake or an Apple Cobbler on the menu.

Hope you enjoyed my little story of Hans and Gertrude, and yes, Titisee in the Black Forest is beautiful.

Be sure to link in below with your story!
