In March 2007 pensioner Peter Jürgensen had his wallet stolen from a supermarket in Walsrode, Lower Saxony in west Germany.
The 73-year-old lost €350, his credit card, identity card and photos of his grandchild.
He only noticed the loss a few hours later and headed back to the supermarket, the Bild newspaper reported on Wednesday.
The former tennis coach applied for new documents and forgot about the theft until now.
But six years later he received an envelope with his stolen wallet inside and a letter apologizing.
“Greed drove me to taking the wallet,” the thief wrote. “I have become a confessed Christian. The holy spirit has called upon me to repair the damage.”
The anonymous man also put an extra €50 in the wallet to apologize.
Jürgensen said: “Everything was in the wallet as I left it. I thank the man for his belated honesty.”
The letter began. “I found your wallet in Edeka Walsrode and wanted to hand it in.”
It was signed with the initials M.L.
And there’s more from the same source here This time about Macdonald
The prayers of the hungover have finally come true – at least for the happy heavy drinkers of the west German city of Osnabrück, where one McDonald’s restaurant has road-tested the country’s first McDonald’s delivery service.
This is my favourite McDonald’s in the world

They called it “Crazy Saturday” – a gastronomy firm that runs a number of McDonald’s franchises across western Germany, trialled a delivery service in Osnabrück, Lower Saxony, last Saturday that many a couch-ridden morning-after case has dreamed of – McNuggets on your doorstep.
“Since we often got asked about the non-existent delivery service, we dealt with the issue and decided to test this scenario for and with our customers on Crazy Saturday,” said Christian Eckstein, head of Systemgastronomie Christian Eckstein, in a statement.
Twenty drivers were hired for the day-long test, where Big Macs and Happy Meals were delivered to doorsteps across the town for the same price as in the restaurants – without a delivery charge. The service was called McHome.
Other German cities are now speculating that their McDonald’s will start deliveries.
But the McDonald’s company was not as hot on the idea.
“At the moment we are not planning a nationwide delivery service,” a spokesman said in a statement. “But that does not exclude any local offers. A nationwide delivery service would be a big challenge, especially in sparsely populated areas with long distances.”
“Unfortunately we can’t guarantee that our customers will receive the product just as fresh and delicious as they are in the restaurant,” he added.
The Osnabrück McDonald’s is not the first to come up with the idea. The fast food giant has offered delivery in parts of Asia and Egypt before.

Holiday Tip | Vacation Tip from me before booking your Vacation/ holiday it would be best if you were very vigilant particular in reading the reviews I used to get some real bad holidays ,
Here’s what I did wrong for a start I would look at how many reviews and what rating they Were giving, , I have a tendency to have all my holidays the all-inclusive type you know the sort all you can eat all you can drink,It’s not the drinking and eating,, ITS just I find it more convenient to pay for it all before I go and leave it at that….
Where I was going to the wrong reviews I was looking at the wrong REVIEWS Also not looking at the people taking of this sort of Vacation,, a lot of them rated a holiday not on the location the main thrust was the service the hotel the food and the drink ,,not at all about the fact that it may be miles from anywhere with no interesting places to visit except maybe some dogeared beach
now I read the reviews about to hotel yes Of the reviews you look reviews on hotels you get reviews on hotels not the surrounding grazing land This is important to me even just as important is the location in the saying location location location
So One in particular Vacation was terrible but the reviews were GOOD about this Holiday Tip Location In fact it was just the hotel and it was super
I did read all the reviews on the hotel fact and a few hotels, ,So me and my pal Tom decided on this hotel seemed to be perfect everyone loved it the staff are friendly the meals were excellent although we did have to cross to the Sister hotel over the road to go to the dining room and the evenings main entertainment that was all fine And the temperatures WereVery good in the evenings even even late at night
We chose a small little seaside resort called Toss er Del mar situated in the beautiful blue waters of the Mediterranean on Spain’s Costa Brava coastline in our opinion the name says it all tos ser Del mar
Fact is the hotel was good and it was all-inclusive,, but if you don’t want to spend all day eating and drinking . There was absolutely nothing to do and it cost is $30 for a taxi to the nearest place there was any sort of life at all I know this was probably because it was the summer only resort And I’m sure had been in season,,It would have been a wonderful holiday but apart from the hotel there was absolutely nothing to do, I like a little bit of activity with my Vacations so please read the reviews thoroughly About the location andY ou may say why didn’t you know ? When I’ve lived in Spain for years I had no idea That’s some of the smaller more northern resorts more or less closed down lock stock and barrel in September who would have thought it With all that sunshine and blue skies San Diego keeps going
With absolutely incredible Roman ruins, Gothiccathedrals of rare power ,Also unbelievable amounts of Islamic architecture Tell you about this country its links to the past both Moorish and Christian and before Roman and many earlier civilisations, fallen and left behind their indelible Incredible buildings many still used to this day
