Pastoor Ruimt Op--Parish Yard Sale

Sunday, 26-September-2010 - Veghel - Marij volunteered for the Sint Lambertus Parish Yard Sale, and I came along to help--got my face painted along the way. Saw a lot of familiar faces. We had a good time, for a good cause: the church needs a new roof.

I (Don't) Skate Amsterdam

Friday, 17-September-2010 - Zijtaart - I strained my back lifting an (empty) wheelbaro last Wednesday morning. Even though I was getting better each day, I had to forget about skating this weekend in Amsterdam with the other Fun-on-Wheels skaters. The least I could do was to wave as the rest headed out from today's meeting point, Inge and Bart's home in Zijaart. After some apple pie and last minute instructions from Ine and Inge, they were on their way.

Slabroek Skating

Monday, 13-September-2010 - Uden - It was a nice day, and it was going to rain the rest of the week so I took off from work early. I wanted to test my old skates to see if they would be better to wear for our upcoming Fun-on-Wheels skate weekend in Amsterdam. At the edge of the bike path I saw these magnificient mushrooms.

Flea Market Fun

Sunday, 5-September-2010 - Uden - The alarm clock went off at 0530. Marij and I were going to the J V Ooievaarsnest Rommelmarkt (flea market). Two cars were loaded and ready to go. I finished coffee and breakfast, while Marij headed for Uden--the gate opened at 0700. I was impressed with how nicely the things were displayed for sale. We had good neighbors and saw familiar faces. With the sunny warm weather, we had a great time. One car even came home empty. Later that evening, we went to Claudia's birthday party, and got treated to Jacomijne singing and Vincent playing guitar.
