I must admit to some mischief in my last post. Michael and I enjoy the new nursing/swinging chair from Pilipp so much that we decided to make a visual representation of how fabulously much you feel like you’re floating when you sit in it. But, really the chair is quite normally suspended with a spring and metal pole.

Anyway. So much for fiction. On to the much more exciting and photogenic realities of my last few days in Germany.

Rothenburg and Eat Like Skeeb 011

Gangster Eowyn at the train station and on her way to Rothenburg o.b.T. The touch screen on the ticket machine had been wrecked with burns (“although not with a cigarette lighter, since there’s no smoke above,” Michael said. Apparently he’s seen three or four wrecked screens already).

In the words of Miss Bates, Rothenburg looks just like a fairyland.

Grace contemplating the very great pleasure bestowed by a 2-euro glass of fresh pressed apple juice. (Apparently I’ve hit an Austen rut.)

Michael and I went back to Rothenburg in the evening to walk the city wall and take the “Nightwatchman Tour” of the city. 1 part Monty Python and 3 parts history. Very enjoyable.

Inspired by Eowyn’s distinct eating style, I’ve had this notion to have an Eat Like Skeeb Dinner. Note the sippy cups, watered down juice, bibs, and lack of silverware.

This shot was taken later in the dinner, as you can tell by the amount and radius of the sauce on our faces. We started out using two or three fingers on only one hand, but to be truly Fleeb authentic, we felt the need to grab whole handfuls of pasta.

    Frau Jaeschke, I’ve had some trouble finding your blog. I’ve tried both “” and “” with no luck….

    Wow. Just wow. Ya’ll are crazy. The non-pastuerized cider looks excellent…and must be a few shades cooler when called “Frischgepressler Apfelsaff.” Yum.

    I can totally see some of those pictures of Eowyn and her family “eating like Fleeb” going into her wedding video someday.

    I just had to add that my kids think this is hilarious, especially Caitlin. She keeps asking to see the “sippy cup” pictures over and over again.

    The cider is indeed fab. I can vouch for that, having tried it! But the spaghetti dinner, Fleeb style…now that is CLASS!!

  6. ROFL!! This is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen! Thanks!
