Friday I went to the diamond wedding anniversary of Heinz-Otto and his wife Elfriede. There was a big party in a hotel in Heiligenhaus near Essen.

After photos I took the sisters and the pastor back to the hotel for another party. I told the pastor about while talking about refugees. He liked the idea about giving things away.
On the way home I nearly ran over a man standing in the road taking his clothes off. Lots of people were dressed as cowboys, nuns, pirates and kings. It's carnival time all over the world, even England celebrates Shrove Tuesday.
