Sunday March 16th. St. Patrick

Written by Jack van Ommen on March 16th, 2014

It is 9 p.m. and I am listening to Prairie Home Companion in Southern California KPCC FM 89.3. A good one, particular the Saint Patrick Day jokes and parodies. It is now 1 p.m. on the West Coast, because instead of the usual 9 hour time difference we do not go to daylight saving time till March 30. It’s 80 degrees at the station and 70 on the beaches.Today we have two birthdays here. My brother in law turned 89 and my oldest nephew 56. Tomorrow my cousin Carol (male) de Vries, the fifth and last generation of the de Vries mastmakers family, and I are gong to pay a visit to the Mastmaker building where the Mastmakers’ Daughters story plays, on the Polderdijk in de Lemmer.
