Friday Flashback: "Everyone Knows It's Windy" Edition

In honor of the howling winds from earlier this week that kept me awake by rattling our blinds and windows, I pulled a couple of old "windy" photos from our photo albums. Yes...actual photos that you can hold in your hand. What a concept!

These pictures were taken in October, 2001. We took the train to Munich for a weekend trip to meet up with our friend Dave from Chicago who was in Munich on business. While there, we made a quick excursion to the Olympic Park. And, of course, no trip to the Olympic Park would be complete without a ride up to the top of the Olympic Tower.

Now, I'm not crazy about heights to begin with. But imagine my concern when I walked out into the open air at the top of the tower and felt gale-force winds blowing against my (at that time) rather substantial girth. I seriously had images in my mind of being blown off the top of the tower, screaming Scheisse as I sailed over the Olympic Stadium, and landing somewhere in Austria. Mrs. TBF, on the other hand, was more concerned about what the fine people at the BMW headquarters were saying about her "freak flag" flapping in the wind.

Wow! Has it really been over six years since we were in Munich? Over six years since we had Weisswurst and Hefeweizen beer for breakfast?

Scheisse! We need to go back!

Yes, come back! It's fun here. And the beer is oh so tasty.
