Gelukkig Nieuwjaar voor jou ook, lieve schat.
We will go as the wind blows and that will be into all directions.
This weather vane is almost human seize, the biggest I had ever seen.
Wonderful picture!
Ginnie Hart: It's a weather vane hard to miss in Düsseldorf, MLMA, for sure. You know me and your Dutch winds: let's go for another ride of our lives! smile
Great shot of a very cool weather vane! A very happy 2012 to you also!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, dear Elizabeth.

Ginnie Hart: The next time I post, Chantal, will be after the fact, so as I say, better early than late! smile

HAPPY NEW YEAR! smile
Cool pic, looks a bit like some things in Steenbergensmile
Ginnie Hart: I haven't been to Steenbergen yet, Luiza, so you may be right. This was in Düsseldorf, your country, but it could have been in the Netherlands, for sure. Thanks. smile

I know your passion for weather vanes, Ginnie, and your heart/hart may have done a high jump -this one is extraordinary indeed! Mijn beste wensen voor een voorspoedig, gelukkig nieuw jaar (I'll post also a photo on 1st January).
Ginnie Hart: Weather vanes are very soulful for me, Philine, yes! This one is lifesize, so it's very hard to miss. HA! Bedankt.
And to you Ginnie. 2011 has had some great moments.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Bill. 2011 has indeed had some GREAT moments. We are so blessed!

Should it be asking too much for a better year than last? (For the world I mean)
Ginnie Hart: I sure hope not, Chad. We could all use a better year...for the world!
Me gusta la claridad y el detalle que le has dado a la foto, el procesado genial.

Feliz Navidad y Feliz años 2012

it is a strange weather vane Ginnie... if he sits on top of the brewery... they should at least had a pint in his free hand.... Penny and i wish you and Astrid a Happy and Healthy New Year....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: There is definitiely a pint in one of his hands, Peter! And that's the truth. smile So, PROOST. Happy New Year.
Modelled by an venturesome German drunk, it seems!
