I'm thinking about getting this bumper sticker for the family van. What do you think?

I've seen these before...they're great.

just a comment on the header and yes, I am nitpicking(so you'll know).

A German would pronounce 'fantastic' as we do in english. The F in German has an F sound. Although the V has an F sound as well. For example, the word 'das Vorbild'(example or model) would be pronounced 'forbild'. Now it would be the W that the German would tend to pronounce as a V, e.g., 'west' would become 'vest', or 'we' would become 'vee' and moreover the V tends to become W, for example, a German would tend to pronounce the word 'vest' as 'west'. Interesting...n'est pas? So instead, it would be entirely acceptable to use the word 'ausgezeichnet' or 'fantastisch' or even 'wunderbar', although 'fantastisch' has the connotation of something rather unbelievable in German.
Now you can laugh...

Father G,

Well, well, well! Haven't seen you loitering around here in a bit! How's things? Getting ready for the Ember Days?

I appreciate the German lesson, that's a language I would surely love to learn! I was not making the connection between the German Pontiff and Vantastic, but because I was planning to put the bumper sticker on the Van...you see what I mean!

Anyway, I pray things are going well for you, feel free to shoot me an email and let me know how things are. therockintraddy@gmail.com

auf Wiedersehen!
