David Does Deutschland – Your former US ambassador to Canada, David Wilkins, and the Wilkins family enjoyed an amazing trip together last month in Germany. The whole gang was there to visit David and Susan’s son, Robert, aka “Major Wilkins” who is deployed in Germany with the South Carolina National Guard. James Wilkins, as well as Robert’s wife Stephanie, and their wonder-twins, Whit and Clary, were all on the exciting journey.
For eight days the Wilkins clan toured the German countryside via bus, train and bike and enjoyed some of Germany’s best offerings (read: lots of beer!) And of course, they took time to do the “Sound of Music tour” in beautiful Salzburg, Austria!
Their travels also took them to Munich, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Berchtesgaden and to the highest peaks at Zugspitze.
Check out these “sehr gut” (or “very good” Google told us that means in German) photos from their dream trip:
They Said What?
It’s a Great Day in South Carolina – last Saturday was indeed, a red-hot, great day in South Carolina. Both the University of South Carolina and Clemson University football teams won their season home openers (albeit in blistering Palmetto State heat and humidity that was decidedly un-fun.)
Tens of thousands of Gamecock fans turned up in Columbia, SC as did Tiger fans in upstate Clemson, SC including our former governor turned United States Ambassador to the United Nations (and Clemson alum) Nikki Haley. (Editor’s note: Considering the heat she takes – and gives – at the UN – we reckon a little SC sweat ain’t nothin’ but a thing…)
David Wilkins, grandson Whit Wilkins, and UN Ambassador to the US Nikki Haley cheer on their Tigers.
It’s a good thing too that both Clemson and Carolina won because it means a week of mucho peace on Team Wilkins where every year college football season is fraught with nervous tension between Gamecock and Tiger fans and the rest of us navigating their divided loyalties. (Editor’s note: It all boils down to Ashley Martin Aldebol loathing the Tigers and Wilkins not caring much for the Gamecocks. And the rest of us keeping out of their way!)

We can’t wait to see what Mary Martin is sporting for the epic Clemson-Carolina showdown come November.
