Veghel Flea Market

Sunday, 30-November-2008 - Veghel - Joined Marij today at the flea market in the Golfstroom community center. Marij had a lot of Christmas decorations for sale. I brought most of the stuff the evening before. We set up shop in the billard room (photo). I kept the low-energy Christmas tree for my desk at work.

Thanksgiving Birthday

Tuesday, 25-November-2008 - Veghel and Bay City - It's my Mom's birthday today, and it's mine too. Chris and Katherine joined us for supper. We talked with Grandma Weiss on the phone afterwards. This was as good as Thanksgiving gets. Of course we'll call again on Thursday when there'll be more Weiss family members in Bay City.

Sinterklaas in Veghel

Sunday, 16 November 2008 - Veghel - Sinterklaas arrived in Veghel today along with 10 skatepieten. Nicky, daughter of the skipper of the boat Ruup helped bring the more than 200 zwartepieten (black petes) to the Veghel harbor. It took five boats to bring Sinterklaas and all of his helpers us all the way from Spain. The links explain the Dutch tradition. Thanks to Annet Goes for taking the group photo.
