Elsewhere on this site, I've mentioned my cousin Guenther from Germany and his work with our mutual geneology. And ultimately, the fact that Guenther had tracked down and gotten permission for us current Fuhrmanns to use our ancient coat of arms.
Guenther is visiting America this month and arrived today, to stay with us for a week. Last weekend, he attended the Family reunion of the descendants of Johann Gottlieb Fuhrmann. Johann Gottlieb was my great Grandfather and the first Fuhrmann in our line to come to america. He was also the brother of Guenther's Grandfather and the reason Guenther and I began corresponding now, over five years ago.
So, if you know me, you know that it may have come up in that time, that I'm a sailor. Perhaps. Could happen...
Well, imagine my delightful surprise when on his arrival Guenther presented me with an owner's flag for our boat, which is truly our "owner's flag." Our Coat of arms as a battle flag! Spectacular! Thank You Guenther.
What would a visit to Tim's House be, without a sail? So, we tried out our new Owner's flag for the first time.
