Erlangen Australia Festival – Catastrophe in the set-up today.

Shit happens.  Yep, that is what I said, ‘Shit happens.’  The third Australia Festival in Erlangen will be held at Martin-Luther-Platz 5, Erlangen tomorrow, June 3rd and will start at 5pm ending at 11pm.

This week has been full on with a few extra hiccups……..for example, one child with a broken finger …some other things that I am not even going to mention BUT………..

Today in the set up, just as I was nearly finished along with the other exhibitors, I gently knocked the corner of the large and very heavy glass table and there was a loud crack or explosion noise and it was like watching in slow motion.  The entire glass table went crashing down into about ten trillion pieces.  Lucky for me underneath all the rubble it was safety glass but hey, nothing like pulling out glass shards from your feet and Birkinstock and from the hands during the clean up.  I devasted the entire room and we all lost set up time.  I didn’t cry…………….BUT NEARLY!!!!  And I didn’t want to be late home as it was Fathers Day and I wanted to be with my precious family.

In Germany, the Germans say, ‘ Glas Scherben bringt Glück.’  (Boken glass brings you luck….)

Well folks, anyone reading this tonight or tomorrow before the festival, THE SHOW MUST GO ON!

Like I mentioned, shit happens.
