The pneumatic harmonium behind, built in Gera, Germany in 1928, is still in use, though some of the pipes are now rather mistuned.

Donald Murray, my first and surely most faithful pal ever, hails from Perth, Scotland.
I first met him at Duns Primary School way back in 1963 or 1964. He was a pupil of the other of two forms during my third or fourth year at school.
We lost contact some years after our family emigrated to West Germany in 1967. The last letter dates 1973.
What a tremendous surprise my wife and I experienced in May 2002 when a tentative e-mail addressed to "Franz at www.goschi.de" popped up, consisting mainly of one question "Franz, is it you?"

Donald Murray, mein erster und vielleicht auch bester Freund, stammt aus Perth, Schottland.
Unser erstes Zusammentreffen erfolgte bereits im Jahre 1963 or 1964, als ich ihn, selber Dritt- oder Viertklässler, als Mitschüler der Parallelklasse an der "Duns Primary School" traf.
Die Verbindung brach ab einige Jahre nachdem meine Eltern 1967 nach Westdeutschland emigrierten. Sein letzter Brief datiert aus 1973.
Welche Überraschung für meine Frau und mich als in Mai 2002 eine vorsichtig formulierte E-Mail, an "Franz bei www.goschi.de" eintraf, die im wesentlichen aus einer Frage bestand: "Franz, is it you?".
