    Hi folks, for three days I've been quiet on bolttalks.
    I got 50 years old last tuesday and was running a party on saturday oct13th. with relatives and friends. I want to share my happiness
    and those of all participants and show you some pictures of the
    event with a surprising outcome.

    we got a nice location near our house, where we could change the empty place into a blue and yellow partyroom.

    Please wait, I have to get the photos smaller.

    The biggest surprise comes at the end.
    My father handed me a collection of dollars from all friends
    to pay a flight to USA and a pair of tickets for me and my brother to watch the Chargers game at Arrowhead in Kansas City
    on Dec. 2nd WOW I can't believe it.

    The next day - of course - my brother and I watched the
    Chargers/Raider game with a super dooper LT running for
    198 yards and four Touchdowns.

    We got photographed just when Nate Kaeding missed the field goal
    ...but it all went good in the end. 28 - 14 and Oakies have 16
    consecutive lost against division opponents.

    in addition to my picture story, I wanna tell you again, that I'm only able to watch NFLgames via American Forces Network TV on
    a black and white screen without speakers. I've to hope they select
    the Chargers for the second game from 10.05 pm to 01 o'clock in the morning. We took some funny pictures like this one.

    Sorry the screen just changed to commercials

    Yes, I know. My brother Markus is married there since 1989.
    I have enough E-mails about cold winters in the midwest.
    I will prepare well. I've fixed my plane from Thursday to Thursday.
    Thanks to my familiy to let me fly alone. After a dozen NFL Europe
    games I see my first NFL game. Miami vs. Giants is boring
    against Bolts at KCC. WOW

    I#m really eager to come to USA


    (only visits were 89 (marriage of my brother) and 96 (family vacation- Independence/ MO and trip to south west with Vegas-Page-Phoenix-San Diego-Anaheim)

    Congratulations Cranberry!

    Looks like an awesome birthday and I am thrilled that you are getting to make the trip to KC to see our Chargers play.:abq2::icon_toast:

    Is Gross- Gerau (sorry for spelling) anywhere near Sontheim/Brenz? I deal with the Rohm factory there on a near daily basis and hope to make it there to check it out some day.

    For American destinations it's not far away - but for Germans it's
    a long way - about two hours on the autobahn (highway)

    but you are allowed to drive as fast as you can.

    (sorry this sentence is not good for climate health)

    On Thursday morning the plane will start from Frankfurt to bring me

    to Kansas City via Chicago. I'm eager to see my first real NFLgame.

    Will I meet somebody from bolttalks there ? It will be a rough

    place for Chrager's tailgaters.

    I'll stay in Missouri for a week and my brother surely will show me

    some nice places downtown.
