The Small Things In Life!

Occasionally, for Friday family fun night, we like to have apples and popcorn and watch something worthwhile as a family. Well, seeing how we're in Germany and I didn't bring our popcorn popper (although with all of our luggage you would have thought it was in there!!) we debated on what to do. I then remembered that a friend shared with me information about Ramstein yard sales - where you can buy nearly anything second hand. Well, we looked and found a European popcorn popper!! That was just the beginning! We then emailed back and forth through the website, trying to figure out when would be a good time to meet. We set up a time and then discovered that the standard meeting place is the parking lot of Burger King on Ramstein AB. After this was coordinated, we showed up at the appointed time and location. It must have been the day for yard sale meetings because the parking lot was full! Everyone was was walking around asking "Are you here for the fan? Do you have the crockpot?" etc. - you get the picture! Anyway, we finally managed to meet up with the woman who had the popper!! Best of all, we had a delightful Friday family fun night with apples and popcorn - popped on our new European popcorn popper! Yes, sometimes it's those small things in life that bring the greatest joy. 

Blessings to you all.  Ellen

Popcorn is a family favorite here too :). I actually just made a batch to go with our sandwiches for lunch. What a blessing you were able to find a popper!
