Woke up this morning...
... and yet again couldn't move my sorry backside out of bed quick enough to go for the earlier train. But anyway, the journey to work went, again, sadly for blog readers boringly smoothly. And the homeward journey was even better because one of the ladies at work, who lives not far from Mönchengladbach station, gave me a lift there after work.
Rather serendiptiously I arrived on the platform at the same time as my homeward bound train and I arrived in Erkelenz a mere 40 minutes after I left work.
That leaves today's blog rather scarce today so I thought I'd give a quick mention to a fellow passenger from yesterday. A fine young man of about 22 or 23 (I'd guess) who was sitting down near where I was standing. Our eyes met, and he smiled. "Oh," I thought "I'm old but I still have it."
Then came the pinprick that burst the bubble: "would you like my seat?"
