Yes, it probably comes from the adjectiv "oede" (öde), which means something like "barren, desert, waste" and "Wald" (="forest").
So, the meaning of this word is something like desert forest or desert of forest, because it´s so much area of forest (hundreds of kilometer), I suppose.

Therefore you live in the greater Frankfurt area, don't you?

Can't help but put it out there after seeing the picture but you look stoned in the theatrical sense of Cheech and Chong. It's pretty awesome :P

Yes, I live nearly one hour with the car from Frankfurt and a half hour distance from Darmstadt. Do you visit your friend in Pforzheim from time to time?

:lol: Well, I don´t know Cheech and Chong, I have to admit honestly, but I only was tired and drunken of Bachs music and a glass of soda. :wink: :lol:

Last year I went to the MusikMesse in Frankfurt. The last time I visited my friend in Phorzheim was in 2007. NOw it's her turn to visit me.

Now I see, it´s a female friend. Somehow I never come to the Musik-Messe, don´t know why, but probably it would be interesting, I suppose. I´m always so busy with my profession, my family and my piano-playing.
If you come again close-by (to Frankfurt or wherever), you are cordially invited to visit me, if you like.

Thank you Image and, of course, Monica, you are cordially invited to visit me, too, though it´s a bit farther as you said.
It would be a pleasure for me, if the Amerital Germs would meet together one nice day. (Hm, if there wouldn´t be this stupid money-donkey.Image And not to forget the kids.Image Though I have to say, that this picture dosn´t mirror my true feelings concerning my son, of course. :wink: )

Yeah - that stupid money-donkey! I want more money-donkeys!! ( I think. What is that again?)

But I am fine with leaving my husband and sons for a few days. Let them cook and clean for themselves for once!!

Pretty flowers. I'll try to post something more creative next time. Too tired now....Image

Thank you for your invitation, Andreas! I went to the Musikmesse twice, in 2003 and 2008, with an Italian friend who works in France and plays the piano as well as other weird instruments like the contrabass clarinet). For me it's sort of vacation, because in Frankfurt I love having lunch at the Saturday market stalls and touring the old pubs and stopping by at Zweitausendeins and so on. At the MM there are hundreds of grand pianos but you cannot properly try them because they are in an open space and there's an awful noise. It's really an ear tiring experience. In 2003 only Fazioli pianos were in a booth. The last year I found a piano that amazed me, a Steingraeber & Söhne E-272. I was also impressed by a Shigeru-Kawai concert grand (more for the responsiveness than the sound). I managed to play them just after the opening time, so the hall was relatively quiet. The third picture was love at first sight (hear). The fourth one is a glimpse of FF's skyline as I saw it.

You mean 4754 are from you. :wink: And I can't believe I have written almost 4,000 responses and you with almost 5,000. Our fingers should be pretty tired. :lol:

Wow, what kind of piano is that third one? It's very beautiful!!
