It’s ten month since the most friendly, unselfish and charming character left Rünenberg. Today we got a sign of life of our beloved lady in black.
When I arrived at my office this morning I thought this might become a day like every other. I started my computer and of course the coffee machine. As usual I opened up all windows to get a bit of fresh air in the room and I turned on the radio as long as I was waiting for that beeping which gives me the sign that my computer starts working slowly. As soon as the login screen appeared I typed my login and password to get access to the mail-server and the internal network. Still I had to wait to start working, but fortunately the coffee maker was ready earlier, so I was able to pour my first cup of coffee today. Someday I have to talk to Sir Schluurggi and ask him for a faster machine.
The fresh brewed coffee was nearly empty when all the incoming mails were downloaded to my local account and then I was ready to start reading and sort them, but first I had to close the windows again, because it started to snow outside. I really can’t believe that it’s still snowing in the end of March; it looks like spring has no intension to come along this year. There have been lots of emails from supporters and friends from all corner of the world, the most asking for the decision of which trophy the Gold Rushers will go after. As I got the order to not answer these kinds of questions but forward them to the manager instead, I quickly went through them.
Others sent their congratulations to Georg Casabella, as he’s got married in Finland last weekend, and I forwarded these messages to his account, no matter that he won’t read them before he and his lovely wife will be back from their honeymoon. There were also people asking about what Micha Loderer and his mates of the GL council are doing these days and if there would be any kind of changes for the upcoming fourth season. Another group of mails I was allowed to forward. And then there still was a not little amount of messages left, which I had to check if they are spam or important. But before I started doing this, I had to go out and have a cigarette before I poured another cup of coffee.
When I came back to my place the radio played a song of the Rolling Stones, a song I like very much and therefore I started to sing along and reveled in old times when I was a singer in a band performing this song. I went through all these messages and deleted the most of them, since nobody is interested in ‘winner notifications’ and stuff like this and when the song nearly ended a message popped in my eyes. I was a message from an account which I have seen once, but I couldn’t remember when or whom it belongs to. The headline called “hope you’re doing fine, my friends” and there was an attachment. When I opened that picture, I nearly fell of my chair, and I’m sure the same would have happened to you, if you were in my place. Check this out:
And that’s now what she wrote:
My dearest friends
I really hope you all are doing fine there in Switzerland. As I have seen you made it to the fifth division already, congratulations on that, you have surely deserved this achievement. Keep your head up high even though it looks to be a hard job to stay there, I’m sure you’ll reach what you’re aiming for. I’m following your rush for gold as good as I can, but unfortunately internet is not available everywhere here in Egypt.
Yes, I got a job here in Egypt since nearly half a year, but first I had some jobs in other clubs around the world after I left you in May last year. Actually I’m working in a hospital, where I had a patient you might know since he is the manager of one of the most famous teams in the Golden League. I was so happy that he soon was sound enough to return to Prague. I hope Horus is doing fine now and has no afterpains at all.
Since your actual season is coming to an end soon, the Golden League should end its third season as well, if I got that right and it looks like you guys still have the chance to get that trophy again, so do me the favor and keep it, as I would like to see it when I pass by for a visit! This could happen soon, as my fixed-term contract is coming to an end.
I’m really looking forward to meet you guys again and get to know the new ones in your club. Maybe there is a chance to meet some of the other Golden League mates too, this would be really great!
Even though I’m very busy here, I still have enough time to remember and I have to say that I miss you all! Just in case you miss me a little bit too, I enclosed this snapshot. I hope you like it
Take care, guys.
P.S. please share this with all the others I know
When I finished this email I couldn’t remember what I was supposed to do. Actually I had troubles to focus on anything; at least I knew this will be no ordinary day anymore! I really don’t know how the radio is doing this, but they always play the right song at the right time: right now their playing “this girl is on fire”!
