Good that You're doing That

Once I was running up my old German village's hill as one of the villages old timers was hobbling down on thick ankles. As we passed, our eyes met and she nodded with approval.
"Gut das du machst das." She said.

"You're doing a good thing."

The image is emblazoned in my mind

Oh I love it!! I lived in Germany for 6 years and still think about all the folks walking till they were very old and the ladies on bikes into their 60s. Here in the Army we have a lot of Germans married to Americans and they dominate the swimming pool doing laps EVERY day! Wunderbar!
