CALL OR STOP IN TODAY. A reunion with my long lost cousin from Germany began Sunday night, March 16 about 10 PM. Achim Stephen, a pro- fessor at a university in Ger- many, was in Milwaukee Wis- consin for a conference. He had planned this reunion with Patsy and myself after the conference. We picked him up at the train station in Lincoln and returned to my home. Upon arriving back at our home, the three of us vis- ited for a while before turning in for the night. Achim and his family, his wife and two young daughters, came to the United States in 1991 so ihe could study in America for one year. When Achim had a break in his studies, he called the Mt. Pulaski City Hall and he asked if any "Lipps" still lived in the city. His call was immedi- ately transferred to Patsy Lipp, who, at that time worked in the police department in city hall. Arrangements were made and Achim and his family traveled to Mt. Pulaski to visit. While he was here, he did some family research about the Lipp family. Achim told us the history of the Lipp brothers that lived in Germany. The three brothers ran a bakery near Frankfurt. In 1856 one of the brothers left Germany for the United States and eventually settled in Mt. Pulaski and he opened a bakery. In the mean time one of his brothers also left Ger- many to join his brother here in Mr. Pulaski. Achim went on to say that he has actually seen the bakery in Germany that the Lipp brothers ran. It is under different ownership now but it is still a bakery. We all got up early the next morning and had breakfast. The menu consisted of coffee and cinnamon rolls. These deli- cious rolls were made by Mrs. "Wally" Howe. They are simply out of this world. We contin- ued to visit after breakfast, Achim also showed pictures of his family and some of his pic- tures of his worldwide travels, too. Later, we decided to go to lunch here in town. We went them about my cousin visiting from Germany. As we looked for a table to sit at, we spotted Mrs. "Wally" Howe, who was just finishing her lunch. We expressed our gratitude for her " tO cinnamon rolls and told her that o I,=Z was our breakfast this morning. = Achim was introduced to her and we explained to her who Achim was and where he was from. Then it began. Achim and Mrs. Howe began talking, not in English, but in German. They went on for a while, both of them speaking in German like they were long lost friends. Patsy and I were very surprised that Mrs. Howe could still speak the language after all these years and speak it so fluently. Mrs. Howe left Germany when she was twenty-four years old. She was a war bride when she married Bill and came back to Mt. Pulaski. The most remarkable thing about this encounter was that both of them were from the same area in Germany, around Frankfurt. Achim lives in the southern part of the same county that Mrs. Howe came from and she lived in the northern part. Isn't it a small world?
