Cute Puppies

It was great to see the photo in the July edition that we took of the sweet little puppies living on their own near Mario's Aegean Wildlife Hospital. They seemed ravenous when we fed them and I was relieved to know they are on the PAWS feeding list. A note about "Sandy": she is the most incredible little street dog. She ran with me several times when I was headed out towards Maltesta in the early morning. So obedient and friendly with a very sweet disposition. She was great with other dogs and even nice to the cats. In the evenings she would sit by my feet at the Glass Cafe and just snooze and enjoy some much deserved attention. I really hope that she will find a loving home.

The Good Samaritan

The following expresses my thanks to Alfons Weber for helping me when I was in need. I had lost my car keys and he gave me his car to pick up my other keys from home.

Als ich im Mai arg laediert nach Paros kam, waren meine Nerven ziemlich blank.
Ich war aufgeregt, konnte mich vor Schmerzen kaum aufrecht halten, fuehlte mich mies und total kaputt.
Aber trotzdem muss man nach Parikia einkaufen, Artzbesuche und alle andered Dinge taetigen.
So auch zum Postamt.
Dort angekommen, sehre ich direkt vor der Post einen schoenen Parkplatz.
Den schnappte mir aber leider eine andere Fahrerin vor der Nase weg.
Voller Hektik einen neuen suchen, einen gefunden raus aus dem Auto, rein zur Post.
Wieder zurueck zum Wagen.
Aber was war das?
Der Motor lief, der Schluessel steckt,
die Tueren fest verriegelt.
Ach, du Schreck was nun,
was soll ich tun!?
Schaue hin und schaue her,
gibt es keine hilfsbereiten Maenner mehr?
Auf der Suche seh' ich dann den Ort, wo Alfons sich sein Geld verdient.
Ich erzaehlte ihm mein Missgeschick.
Er versuchte mir zu helfen.
Fragte bei den Autoverleihern an,
ob einer einen Atos knacken kann.
Leider hatten wir kein Glueck.
Mit den Nerven fast am Ende,
schaue ich auf Alfons Haende,
die in seine Tasche greifen,
und mir einen Schluessel reichen:
"Hier Frau Nachbarin,fahr'n Sie schell mit meinem Wagen, zu Ihrem Hause hin,
mit den eig'nen Schluessel fahr'n Sie dann
mit meinem Wagen diesen Parkplatz an....
Merken wird's nicht mal Ihr Mann,
da ich sehr gut schweigen kann."

Vielen, vielen Dank Herr Weber.
