Tuesday, 03-August-2008 - Boekel - It was another fine evening for skating. I rode my bike to Jan's place where Willem (photo) picked us up. There were twenty skaters. About halfway, Gerard hit an empty plastic bottle and fell, across the path. Marij was right behind and tripped over him. She slid on her belly over the concrete--boy did that hurt. The group huddled around them until they were ready to continue. Our group put in 25 km--the fast group put in a few more. When we got back to Jan's place, I watched the kittens play in the yard. The calico kitten fell in the pond, and Yvonne quickly rescued her.
