A friend called yesterday to tell me that he was heading up to an auction to (perhaps) buy a German Luger. I have a German Luger – they are neat weapons.
As we talked I told him that if he indeed bought a Luger, we would then haf (German for ‘have’) to go shopping for German Luftwaffe tunics. Only fitting; we are both retired pilots. And we wouldn’t want to be sitting on a porch somewhere with our Lugers, waiting for some unsuspecting salesman while looking tacky now, would we? (Reference: “Second Hand Lions”).
We laughed a bit, then I mentioned that we would also need a hat – but only one. The German WW II hats actually doubled as either a Luftwaffe pilot’s hat, when worn conventionally, or U-Boat Captain’s hat, when worn backwards! More laughing…
Just depends upon the task at hand… LOL!
