August, A Beautiful Month

Hello Guys! It is August again. A birth month of  4 of us in the family. Two of my nieces are having their birthdays this month. Happy birthday Red and Ethel. Happy birthday in advance to my brother-in-law as well. He is the author of the fantasy and adventurous book Claws of the Earth. A very interesting book to read.

August is a lovely month to all who are celebrating their birthdays. I wish all of you out there who are celebrating your birthdays this month, good health, peace and success in life. May your wishes and dreams in life come true. I wish that for myself, too.

The video above was taken in 2015 PPP in Wesel, Germany when I took a rest from strolling at the flea market and kirmes at the Rhine. Just a lovely day watching the people enjoyed boating.

So what event is happening this month in my neck of the woods? Well, same as usual every year. This will be the 40th PPP (Pauken, Plunder and Promenade) in Wesel. This is a great event in NRW (North Rhine Westfalia). It will start this coming Friday, the 4th of August and will end on the 6th Sunday evening. There will be a balloon flying event on Friday at the Römerwardt Flugplatz (flying place). On Saturday evening, there will be fireworks at the Rhine with lots of live music. Besides that, there is a Kirmes at the Rhine. The biggest Fleamarket in NRW will be on Sunday. I hope the weather will be good
