Alles Gute zum Vatertag!

Hallo followers! Sprechen Sie Deutsch?  It was Father’s Day recently in the US, and it is ridiculously difficult to shop for my dad. All of those suggested gifts like ties, watches, fishing or electric tools, he’d never use! 😕 So I decided to finally check out Schiller’s Delicatessen and see if I could pick up some things that were unusual, that I couldn’t get anywhere else, or just … Continue reading Alles Gute zum Vatertag!
