Hello Bill,

Reif fuer's Wochenende!

"Ripe for the weekend" (with a real touch to tired and down)

BTW: If you wish to invent new words you should learn German. Then you can use
all of your vocabulary as building blocks. A quite famous example:

Donau (the river Danube)
Dampf (steam)
Schiff (boat)
Fahrt (drive)
Kapitaen (captain)
========================
Donaudampfschiffahrtskapitaen

(captain of a steam boat on the river Danube, preferably owned by the now
defunct Donaudampfschiffahrtsgesellschaft)


Greetings from Germany,
Alexander
