Our new neighbor, Regina, saw us moving in and recognized Ryan. She is one of the helpers of his Crunch Time (10-12 yr olds) class at church. She decided to welcome us to the neighborhood (very un-German -- our first such experience in 7 1/2 yrs of living here) by bringing us a fruitcake. It was actually quite yummy!
To all of the members of Grace Outreach Center (our former church), you know that fruitcake is one of Pastor Brook's mortal enemies, the bane of his existence. So Robin and I enjoyed this in his honor.
