Experiences in my Life

Yesterday there was on Peter’s Facebook a link to this blog. A few people were interested in reading it. I reblogged it here so maybe some more people might want to read it.

It has been a while  since I added anything to my childhood memories. If I had another look at it now to see what I have written  some time ago, maybe I would find a few things in there that I do not remember so well anymore now. With time the memories seem to fade somewhat. This is why it is important to write down the things that I do still remember now.

Today I thought about it how blessed I am that I have a number of great-grandchildren. Yes, there are five of them now. Grandson Tristan has two girls, grandson Ryan has two boys, and granddaughter Roxanne has one boy. The two girls are nine and ten years. The boys are five and three years, whereas Roxy’s little Carter is now 10 and 1/2 months.

The end of the division (“Die Wende”)

 German reunification (Deutsche Wiedervereinigung) took place on October 3, 1990

So today, the 3rd of October 2018, Germans celebrate the Wiedervereinigung. It is a public holiday in Germany.

“. . . . Berliners from both sides of the city celebrated at the wall as well as on both sides of the border after 28 years of separation. . . .” This took place from 9 November 1989 on!

In the “Deutsche Welle”  was today an interview with Alexandra Hildebrandt who is the director of the Checkpoint Charlie Museum in Berlin:

This is what I found in Google about Hildebrandt’s pregnancies:

“Friday, October 20, 2017

Berlin – At the age of 58, the museum director of the Berlin Wall Museum, Alexandra Hildebrandt, is expecting her seventh child.

As she confirms to the “Bild”, she looks forward to the seventh child as well as everyone else.

Fifth child in five years

At the calculated date of birth – in January or February – the museum director will be 59 years old. For her, it is already the fifth child within five years. In 2013 she got twins, a daughter in 2014, a small son at the beginning of last year. In addition, Hildebrand has two grown children.

According to the head of the museum, the pregnancy came about in a natural way with her partner, the management consultant Daniel Dormann. Artificial insemination did not need it.

It’s in the family

As she goes on to say, there is a late happiness in the family. Already her grandmother had her last child at the age of 60 years.

For the 58-year-old is the re-pregnancy quite associated with problems. For two months she suffers from chronic bronchitis.”
