So, "I give you my daughter with poison!" more or less. :mrgreen:
Interesting stuff .... thanks ! :)

..... I'm pretty ignorant about the German language .

Of course , we know nothing about the character of the daughter ..... it may be literally true in certain cases !

By the way, I forgot to acknowledge catweazel's contribution that you've now requoted. Catweazel: yup, that's the gist of it.
I had it drummed into me as a child that one of my ancestors was responsible for the imposition of French in the English court and its subsequent spread into the English language. Apparently I'm a direct descendant of William the Conqueror, Geoffrey Plantagenet, Empress Maud, three King Henry's, three King Edwards and sundry Kings Philip and Louis of France.

Ye may call me Sire.

I reckon it's fairly polite , taking all factors into consideration ... :lol:

And don't get too complacent in your new position .... I sense that the honour could be removed as swiftly as it was bestowed ...
.... ha !
There may also be challengers and usurpers about .... one never really knows ...

I like spoonerisms and anagrams, and I note that an anagram of "sire" is "rise." You do, indeed, get a rise out of me. :lol:

(No, not that kind of a rise!)

I noticed your .sig. I like Vonnegut to. A quote of his I have in my .sig-rotation database (they're inserted randomly via a shell script) is this:
"We could have saved the Earth but we were too damned cheap."

Seriously now: I'm happy to see that after initially starting off on the wrong foot here, you have now clearly found your feet, and once you got a foot in the door, you seemed to hit the floor running.

Thanks, Damien. (Did you ever read Hermann Hesse's Demian? I liked it a lot when I was a young man.)

It so happens there's a U.S. Army Airfield about 1.5 miles from our house as the crow flies. It was almost abandoned when we bought our house 16 years ago. About four years ago, though, it became the headquarters for U.S. Army Europe following their move from Heidelberg (an hour away), where they'd been since the end of WW-II. They're very noisy! Blackhawk helicopters, tuning the airplane engines for hours on end in an open hangar that faces us and acts like a megaphone, and so on. Sometimes we can't open the windows anymore in the summer for the noise. Other than that, well, even with the thorny political situation of today, Germans in general are still in love with America.

Before I forget, here's a cartoon that seems appropriate to this topic.

i have not read it but i know it is a childhood epic of childhood blackmail, good versus evil intent etc...wish i had an english language version to actually read (my germanic language skills are very rusty in my old age now, even though my family used to own "The German Club" in Dorchester, Massachusetts (just another part of greater Boston, Massachusetts), from the late 1920s till the 1960s...and yes, my family did host the "bund" meetings there way back when...i would counter that thought with, have you ever read, "Johnny Tremain"...a childhood favourite of my own?...it is set in pre-revolutionary and then revolutionary 13 colonies emerging into the United States...the novel's themes include apprenticeship, courtship, sacrifice, human rights, and the growing tension between Patriots and Loyalists as conflict nears. Events described in the novel include the Boston Tea Party, the British blockade of the Port of Boston, the midnight ride of Paul Revere, and the Battles of Lexington and Concord...a very good read...as to those either going back to germany or remaining here in Alamogordo, a surprising amount of german nationals have chosen in the past and those still here have been known to decide to retire and remain here...we have had a very good time with the germans here...they even host a yearly bavarian style octoberfest here in alamogordo...loved the cartoon...with warm regards...DAMIEN

I have enjoyed this thread, and I have learned many new words.
You are truly a writer, and a gentlemen, of sorts :wink:
