Tuli--You've been with me since the a blog BFF. You've seen it all and stuck by me...from the first flicker of my many tragic obsessions with: mushrooms, flea markets, beer-drinking, hedgehogs, beer-drinking hedgehogs at flea markets, etc. For that, I award you the Eurolush BFF Award. The award is actually just a pint of beer down at Trafo. Hurry up and get here so we can get started with the "ceremony."

You are the best, Tuli, dear.

Dear Eurolush -

I've never posted here but have followed your blog for some time now - it's been so great to be a very small part of the joie de voir that just pours through the monitor when I read your posts - I don't know how I will replace the whole experience! For a number of personal reasons my time spent on your blog was a wonderful spring breeze and I'll miss that.

Thanks for the fanatical dedication to german beers, the great photos of wonderful villages, and most importantly, the chance to get to know you.

Machs gut! Alles Gute! Bis zum nächsten Mal!


Eleanor, It's confusing. I'm moving closer to you...but we'll be even farther apart (in timezones.) Luckily, we'll only be about a 20 hour flight away from one another!! Twenty hours is nothing!! It's less than nothing! When I come to visit--which will happen some day very soon--I'll expect you to round up Kim, Suse, Mary, Amelia, Fifi, Janet, etc. etc. etc. I know I'm forgetting people...bring them, too! Then I'll expect you to perform your infamous belly dance. I'll expect Kim to perform some of her famed dance moves as well. It'll be "Dance-Off Australia Edition"!

You're right. There have been so many fun times via our blogs. Like all good sibling relationships, ours has been filled with squabbling and love. With criticism and praise. With competition and collaboration.

I will miss your taunting.

I will miss taunting you back via my blog.

I will miss your funny comments.

I will miss thinking of you and snickering, as I write my taunting posts.

But don't worry. I'll be haunting your blog from now 'til the end of time. You'll never get rid of me!




Amelia, Besides having the cutest family on the planet (which you do), you're a talented quilter and an amazing cook. Hopefully, when I finally make it to Australia some day, you'll invite me over to your adorable house and show me your beatiful quilts. I'll also expect a hearty vegetarian meal--which includes dessert. (Don't forget the beer.)

It's been so much fun being a small part of your life over the last few years. I can't tell you how exiciting it was when Eleanor called me to tell me the baby had arrived. I was so happy for you and your family. It was almost as if we were a small part of the excitement. Having Eleanor as our go-between has been delightful!

I'll definitely keep up with your blog and look forward to seeing lots more of your quilting, cooking, family, house, life, etc. You are so sweet and wonderful, Amelia! I'm lucky to have you as a friend!




fifi--I'm always a little star-struck when you show up in my comment box. I get tongue-tied--or the equivalent here in blog world. I count myself as one of your many, many admirers. I'm a huge fan. Your talent for writing. Your amazing underwater photography. Your phenomenal art. Your powerful swimming abililty--winning open water races--& swimming with SHARKS!! Aiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!! I am in awe of it all. You're a SUPAH-STAH!! I bow down to you, Ocean Queen.

Thanks for all your support and kind comments. It's all meant a lot to me over the last few years. Getting to know amazing and inspiring women (like you) has been the best part of blogging for me.

All the best to you, fifi!



Oh, Stink Pants.

I love this final post - so perfect, like all the others that led up to it. I do feel a little sad, like you're moving. Which you are. But this time closer to me. Which is good.

I would read your blog even if you weren't my little sister and I didn't have to check daily to make sure you we're unjustly dogging me out. Justly dogging me out is okay, just not unjustly, you understand?

I hope you will find your way to another blog down the road, maybe something a little different but with your sweet old Eurolush tone and style. I will even pay your stooopid typepad bills, but only if they are less than 47 cents a month.

Here's to cupcakes and dirdl's and not letting Jen cut you up in some nasty little dive.

What? I just get clued in and now you're leaving?


I recall one of those beer tents in Holzkirchen with great fondness, about Anno Domini 2000. Visiting friends. It was wonderful.

There's an awful lot I love about Germany, including the memory of singing "How Great Thou Art" at 5,000 feet in a hot air balloon, over the NW slopes of the Bavarian Alps.

Do keep up the blog. The name is just too cool to lose....


Having grown up in Germany, I always read your blogs with great interest - and a chuckle. Getting to see all the wonderful photos of Tex made me yearn for my late Westie.
I am hoping you will take up blogging again in CA. Your friends all over the world want to keep in touch.
Want to stop on your way to California and see my son's brewery in Minnesota? I am assuming your taste for good beer will continue in this country.

Missing you and Tex....


How did I not comment on this post? I don't recognise the photos either, which I suspect means you posted when our internet had run out and so I couldn't comment or look at pictures.

Are you still there? What country are you in now?

I miss you! We need more pastries and beer in the blogosphere! Come back, darling Eurolush!



I would like to thing that your visits to the Emerald Isle reveal an affinity for The Celts. However, you don't seem to have managed to get to Wales - the land of my fathers (my mother, actually). That said, you may not have understood a word we said. So, to mark your departure (back to the land of my grandsons, as it happens), here's a wee ditty from another Celtic nation, Scotland.........

Haste ye back, we loo you dearly
Call again, you're welcome here.
May your days be free from sorrow,
And your friends be ever near.
May the path on which you wander
Be to you a joy each day.
Haste ye back, we loo you dearly
Haste ye back on friendship's way.
