Munstershire

 

in Burgsteinfurt - a moated castle in the town of Steinfurt. It is the oldest moated complex of Westphalia and is on a nearly circular island, which is surrounded by the Steinfurter Aa. Nowadays, consisting of three building complexes, the upper castle, the lower castle and the castle mill, the facility was rebuilt in the course of its eventful history again and again and expanded.

 

I have to take a longer break from SC, because I'll get a hip replacement at the hospital - and a rehabilitation will follow - Ginnie and Maureen managed that very well last year - let's hope that all my things will go well.

Very nice, Philine.

All the best with your transhuman surgery.

I little advice...don't let them do to you what they did to Ginnie, as she has a knee replacement! smile

After the surgery I expect you will not have time for Shutterchance as you will be training for a marathon race...
Philine: Oh yes, much training to become fit or fitter again. Thank you kindly for your good wishes, Ray!

You live in such an agreeable part of the world Philine. Good luck with the hip replacement, a routine procedure these days. You will very soon me out and about again - but faster!
Philine: You are right, and I hope for good results, the pains are hellish now. Many thanks, Chris!

These are beautiful scenes, so much to see and enjoy. The swans appreciate such beauty, too, and enjoy swimming with the autumnal leaves. I like the weeping willow, too (it fits in with music on the radio currently (Puccini's "The Humming Chorus"). I did pick up immediately on the symbolism of the crutches; I will think of you as I head back to the Mad House. I hope it goes well but please make sure you follow all the advice.

Come back soon!
Philine: Yes, I have to follow all the advice and to work hard with the physiotherapist. I wish you an agreeable time at the Mad House, and I'm sure the next holidays are already planned. Thank you kindly for your comment, Alan!
Magnifique Philine.
Je vous souhaite bon courage pour cette opération qui reste lourde mais qui est somme toute assez courante de nos jours.
Je croise les doigts pour que tout se déroule parfaitement.
Pensées amicales.
A bientôt.
Philine: Merci beaucoup pour le bons mots, M.Richard!
Bon dimanche
The pictures are very nice today, especially the top left. I love the weeping willow.

I am sure your surgery will be a complete success as you will do the work required to make it so.
See you before too long I hope.
Philine: Yes, I have to be very obedient, thank you very much, Mary!
Another fine looking place I would love to visit. We both wish you all the best for your operation and look forward on hearing how it went and how you are getting on. I didn't tell you in my recent email but I am having a Cataract operation on 21st.January, I am not looking forward to it and will probably miss a few days on SC also.
Philine: With my best wishes, Brian! Take well care of you!

Wishing you a very successful outcome, Philine
I am certain that you will do well Philine. SC will be on your side. I like the top left picture because of the shallow water and swans.
I especially love the bottom-left image of the half-timbered building and the lovely bridge with reflections, Philine.

And yes, now is the time to get this hip business done and over with. I'm ready to celebrate my 1-year anniversary of a new knee! smile

A beautiful castle collection. All the best with the replacement and be diligent with the post-operative exercise. They make the replacement successful or not. Here's hoping that someone will hold you when you wake up.
I especially enjoy the bottom two pix Philine.

I became bionic (hip replacement) exactly four and a half years ago today. My right hip is awesome now. Take good care and work hard on recovery.

Here's a lilac porch to cheer you! http://pixiepixels.shutterchance.com/image/2011/07/05/a-lilac-porch/
a temporary discomfort, before you feel much better soon, Philine. all the best for the procedure and we will look forward to your return to SC and expanded mobility.
