So one of the first things somone told us when we moved here is that chimney sweepers are good luck. if you see one , you should go up to them and touch them on the arm, and that will bring you luck for the year. the entire three years we’ve lived here in germany we’ve had the same cute young guy come to check somthing or another in the attic and basement of our house, but i never got a picture of his little truck until this week. i thought it must be doubley good luck to have him do his bi-annual visit the same week and st. patrick’s day…. right? so there is his little truck… and to continue on the green theme here is a piece i did last year and sent in to my favorite magazine … it just came back today!
