Uncle Carl/Cousin Joe/German Restaurant
I'm sneaking in a post to report on current genealogy activities. Yesterday I called and spoke with the oldest Kolbe in my husband's tree, Uncle Carl. He is 92 years old and has a wonderful recollection of family information. My hand could barely keep up with his information as I feverishly took notes during our conversation!
Then I called and spoke to a Kolbe cousin, Joe, in Colorado. That was fun!
Later that evening, my husband and I went to a local German restaurant, Haus Murphy's, to embrace some of the food and drink his ancestors enjoyed. There were two fellows playing German songs on the tuba and accordion. It was delicious food, drink and great fun!
