German Fun.

"On the street to Bremen there stands an old donkey. He is weak and tired, because he has been the move all day. Why is he on the way to Beermen? Because hopes to find work as a musician. He thinks maybe he can find work in the symphony orchestra as a trumpet blower. At home he can no longer work, because his father, a miller, wants to get rid of him. He is fifteen years old, and the bags which he must carry to the mill are too heavy..."

A old donkey... that finds work... in an orchestra...

Translating German is fun. I love translating German. I don't could go on living if I didn't get to translate such masterpieces. I can hardly wait to see what happens next. I love German. I love translating German. I'm going to gnaw off my arm at the elbow. Thank you, thank you.

You're pretty cute. Hey wanna go out? Only problem is, you'd have to fly a long long way. But I could schedule that flight for you...

You guy and gal are too cute! Great job translating German Seth. It is often great when you love what you do!! Here is a quote that comes to mind by, believe it or not, Confucious:

If you love what you do,
you will never
work another day in your life.

In Christ Jesus--

Somehow I wonder if your German is a bit rusty. If not, what in the world are you translating? Texts written by farmers on LSD?
