It was over. And, like everything else during my six months in Germany in 1992, this was both good and bad.
Here we go, one last time;
Or how to live outside of the books
One Guy’s Opinion
By Guy Thompson
Island living isn’t so hot;
Or how good my German really got
The bells! The bells! or how do I convince you that I still don’t like beer?
Home away from home; Or how it was no problem
There was a man in the barn with his arm in cow, up to his shoulder.
Going off the farm; Or how did we get to halftime so fast?
It was time for a change.
Making things click into place;
Or how I found the loneliest spot in Germany
It had been easy. Almost too easy.
(Part 3 of my experience as an IFYE to Germany in 1992.)
Oh, I was shocked, alright; Or how I learned to drive a tractor, in German
Twenty years ago today, I passed out.
Strange that I could recall that, isn’t it?
