Ich gar nichts =FCber deutsche Geldgeschichte
wei=DF, blo=DF da=DF ich die Bedeutung "bucks"

(I know nothing about the history of German
money, but merely that I wanted to clarify the
meaning use of the word "bucks".)

Sowieso hatte der j=FCnger Brahms beim Brodell
wahrscheinlich mit Knuschflecken, usw.,
bezahlt geworden. Leider ich kein Klavier
seit viele Jahre spielen kann. (*schmolle!*)
Ich GAR kein Spa=DF beim Leben bekomme!
(*schmolle!*) =20

I will not translate the above paragraph.
People who don't speak German can use their
imaginations. Meanwhile Ah still nayvir git
tew hayve ENNY funn at-tall! (*pout!*) At
least I'm making good progress on the new
"Sonata No. 1 for (Bb) Clarinet and Piano"
for Professor Joze Kotar. . . . But you still
can't trust them thar fuzz-faced boys! They're
all crazy! =20
