SERENDIPITY ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


It was Serendipity at its finest this morning at 7th and Montana as an Anonymous Tourist arrived on the scene just in time to help Kathy and me with the Sunday Crossword. You see, we had finished most of the puzzle but were stuck on one remaining answer: A five-letter word for "Help, to Helmut." Obviously, we needed to know a little German to finish this puzzle. Just as we were about to get "desperate" and look-up the answer on Kathy's iPhone, the Tourist interrupted us. "May I borrow ziss chair?," he asked. I looked at Kathy. She looked at me. We both looked at the Tourist, a German named Rolf, amazed. We traded him the chair for the answer. Rolf, if you're out there, thanks for the HILFE ...!

If a similar question comes up again, email me. I might be able to help! Of course, how often do you have to know a German word to do a crossword puzzle?
