Oh yes Sandy, I really enjoy watching Rick Steves show on tv. I've ordered
some of his booklets already. I've actually learned a lot from his website.
I do hope to meet up with Roberta and her hubby. Thanks for the suggestions,
it just confirms my belief that Rick Steves is a good one to follow.

Hugs,
Kim

email you but it bounced. We get to Munich on 9/18 and leave on 9/25. So
what kind of trouble can we get into in that period of time? LOL.

Hugs,
Kim

Thank you so much Allison for this information. I will print this out and

Thanks Mike. I will print this out also and take it with me. If it's still
there and we happen to be in that area, trust me, I'm sure DH or I one will
find it. I'm lucky that I have a husband who wholeheartedly supports and
participates in my fabric/quilting obsession, sometimes reluctantly though.

Hugs,
Kim

Hoist an Oktoberfest Bier for me while you are there, Kim. We went to
Oktoberfest on our first Anniversary, and have returned a few times. Munchen
is a beautiful city.

When you see price of Dirndl you will realize you do NOT want to cut it up!
Look for aprons, table linens, and bedding instead, if you just can't get to
a fabric department or shop.

When she sees the prices of everything, we'll hope she doesn't faint
dead away!
