Today is my mom’s birthday and I wanted to do a commemorative piece for what would have been her 92nd birthday.
Mama often reminisced about the happy years when my dad was stationed at Rhein Mein Air Force Base in Germany in the mid-1950s. They so enjoyed exploring Europe and brought back great memories of France, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.
One of her favorite stories took place on a solo day trip to post-war Berlin. She says the bus driver refused to stop so she convinced him to just slow down a little so she could leap out and explore the city. He did and she did!
