The Apple Tree Story


Today I want to tell you a short story from my childhood. I can get inspired by a lot of things. Today I got inspiration by a friend on the gaming platform Steam. She wrote me a chat message and apart from other things she chatted also about the meaning of different first names. She for example mentioned that there is a similar one as my name Dennis. It´s a Turkish name that is written Deniz. Dennis is the english variant of the greek name Dionys and Dionysius. But she told me that the Turkish name Deniz would mean “He … Continue reading The Apple Tree Story

I made this stuff decades ago when I came to school…


It´s sometimes funny if you or a family member goes through old things. Some days ago when I visited my mother, she showed me a lot of stuff that she couldn´t throw away as she said. She said that I made funny things when I came to school with eight years or so. She opened a folder and started to show me some stuff that I made back then.

The one-armed thing … Continue reading I made this stuff decades ago when I came to school…

I did spend a lot of time there in my childhood and teenage. In holidays we did stay there for many weeks and apart from that usually all weekends … Continue reading Daily Prompt: The Transporter

Daily Prompt: Prized Possession


The Daily Promt asks: “Describe an item you were incredibly attached to as a child. What became of it?”.

It was the Amiga Computer. The Amiga was pretty famous in that time before the PC became more successful. I sold my Amiga someday because I got a PC as well. But … Continue reading Daily Prompt: Prized Possession

The Kids of my Uncle are the Creators of this funny Snowmen


I saw the kids of my uncle while they created this funny snowmen. I had to take a photo of the result. It´s fun to see kids while creating a snowmen because it reminds me to my own childhood and how uncomplicated the life appeared to me at that time. However… I also saw that they did build an igloo, an pretty pretty small igloo. I rather would say tiny igloo. I asked why the igloo is so small and they said “Dennis, you know all the rabbits hear in our neighborhood, and then you should understand they need a … Continue reading The Kids of my Uncle are the Creators of this funny Snowmen
