Many people might say they renovated their house in 2012.  But how many can say their house has been around since 1478?

Enamored of doors?  There are plenty more every Thursday, and sometimes later, at Norm’s blog.  Got doors?  Join us.  It’s a great time.

From Arizona, I’m taking a quick journey back to Germany for this church door.  Isn’t virtual time travel great?  And now back to my warm, sunny visit.  If I don’t get to your Thursday Doors entry this week, please forgive me.  I’m spending as little time online as possible and as much with family and nature as I can.  Hopefully you’ll reap the photographic rewards soon.  🙂

The last time I was in northeast France visiting my s-i-l, we decided to leave France for a short while, driving across the border to Germany and the picturesque town of Staufen im Breisgau.  Although the rain was beating down when we arrived, we partook of a delicious lunch, (food and drink make everything better), then walked through the streets, going into shops and enjoying being tourists. I took a number of door photos there, before even knowing about this challenge of Norm’s.  The weather wasn’t very good, although the rain did stop after lunch, but we had a great time in the shadow of the local castle and its vineyards.  We ended the day in a pastry shop, the perfect finish to a lovely get-away.

In a moment of serendipity, today on the anniversary of D-Day, while shopping, I met a veteran of the United States Airforce and his wife.  I thanked him for his service and we talked awhile about his experiences. (more…)
