Carved the maypole again. The theme of the maypole this year was “The wainwright” because the maypole is standig at a site where a wainwright had his workshop. The wheels are a symbol for the wainwright, but they are part of our coat of arms, too. They are called Mainz Wheels (Mainzer Rad), because the archbishop of Mainz was our landlord in the middle ages. We hope to win first price again (like last year)!
Greetings from Germany!

I love your maypole it is really nice. It brought back memories for me of Germany. I lived there for 6 years in the U.S. Army. I lived in Schweinfurt and Vilsec. Germany is one of my favorite places in the world. I miss the food a lot.
