Feel free to add in the comments the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “Y”!!!


I will never forget the GREEN of my very first car, 1965, a Volkswagen / beagle – he and me, we had some challenges: once we had an emergency landing in a little lake of a forest nearby – where I tried to be a good teacher for my mom, she wanted to get a driver’s licence. I warned her much too anxious not to enter a little wooden bridge with our Volkswagen in that green, green forest – and so she drove our brave car into the pool with lot of protesting frogs. When a green dressed forester and his friends pulled the car out of the water, the automobile was covered with green mud. Green water ran out of the doors. My very green day.

I was a minute UNDER the water inside the car, anxious to get drowned, the car lay on his side, door was not to open, dear mom above me behind the driver’s wheel – don’t ask me, how I got out! My mother was in panic and ran in panic barefooted 10 kilometers back home. When the forester came, he asked me: what have you done? Why driving so silly? I replied: my mother sat behind the wheel. The forester and his friends laughed loudly – they did not believe me and answered: never heard a teenager giving such an untruth! More at
