Scarecrow Weekend Balloon Race

The letter below reached Lilian on June 18th:

Wegberg, 17 June 2008

Dear Lilian,

I have found your balloon in our garden on June 15th at 9.00 hour in the morning.  My husband and I didn’t know where from the balloon comes.  So we look in the Internet and we know the balloon is coming from England and, see, OXHILL has a wonderful Church!

With best regards from Germany, all the best for you and your family.


Annemarie & Herbert Peters


P.S. Wegberg is a little town with approximately 30,000 people, near the Dutsch-border and also 15 kilometres away from “Mönchengladback”- a big town of 260,000 people.


We suspect that this is the winning balloon.  And, in case you were wondering, I didn’t have to stretch myself too much translating the letter.  Annemarie writes far better English than my German.
