About Karl-Heinz...

Dear postcrossers :-)

My daughter opened the account for me, because I do not know too much of computers...
(My daughter would like to do an exhibition at her music school with funny / cute / unusual / weird postcards about music, so if you find a special card like that, I would be happy if you send it to me :-) )

I live together with my wife in a house in the woods, in a village in the north of Germany.

Now I have been retired for some time, and have a lot of time to do things I like:
family research (I looked up the members of our family in old church books back to the 17th century),
I am a member in a group of people who like to speak "Plattdeutsch" (a kind of German that was spoken in my village, but now there are not too many people left who speak this language),
and I like history, folk music and reading.

Maybe you can send me a postcard
with a quotation or poem you like in your language and the translation,
or a picture of something that is special and unique of the place where you live (language/alphabeth, legends/ fairy tales / myths, famous writers or musicians or artists of your area, special food...),
or maybe you have postcards about peace (which is very important in these days, as it is to take some time for each other and not only to rush from one appointment to the next and never really be anywhere...)
or a unicorn (for my daughter ;-) )
or.... what y o u like best and would like to receive yourself :-)

Another thing I would appriciate: if you write your favourite joke on the postcard :-)
...Or just anything about yourself,-I am looking forward to reading from you! :-)

Greetings from Germany,


P. S.: I really like this joke, maybe it can make you smile, too ;-)

A man was walking along Main Street when he found a penguin walking along the road near the river, so he picked it up and took it to the local police station.

He told the policeman at the desk, "I found this penguin on Main Street, near the river. What should I do with it?"

The policeman looked at the man and said, "It's obvious what you should do with it! Take the penguin to the City Zoo!"

The man said, "Oh, of course! I'll take it to the zoo." and he left the police station with the penguin under his arm.

The next day the policeman was on duty on Main Street when he saw the same man walking along the street with the penguin by his side. The policeman stopped the man and said, "I thought I told you to take the penguin to the zoo?"

The man replied, "Yes, I did. I took the penguin to the zoo yesterday. We had a lot of fun! Today we're going to the City Museum!"
