Even Stalin didn't dare tax the vodka
also had in 95 an old couple live next to me , the guy was in the U Boats. He was sunk & spent some years in scotland. he developed parkinsons disease later but i still saw & said hello to his wife after he died(i moved to my present house). He had apple trees in his garden always was nice to my 2 sons gave them apples (no sick jokes please) was a decent man.

was interesting to meet these guys. In the Hospital the stalingrad vet told me some things that he would never tell another person who was never in the military. he had cancer. he knew he was going & we ate dinner together & he i think liked talking to me.
