Here we are in the Gesthaus Rose, where we hung out a lot...! It was a nice place to pass the time. People were friendly and I don't remember any bad times that could flare up in other places.

And no... Neil Watson and Howie Watson are not related, except as a “Band of Brothers”

This is a wonderful place to go on a warm Sunday afternoon. I think that it was not only local folks who came here, but also folks who wanted a nice day away from the city, like Heilbronn.

What was great was that all we had to do was take a leisurely stroll from the barracks. It was a beautiful day in our neighborhood.
