Between Christmas and New Year

Friday, December 28th, 2012

I am off to spend a couple days with my oldest cousin. He is of the pre-digital age and I may not have internet access for a while. On January 2nd I go to Soest to house/dog sit till the end of January.

Wednesday morning I went to the airport to welcome Corrine’s dad, Brett and her Grandfather Tony and his wife Sandy. They are in Amsterdam till the 30th and then fly to Geneva to watch Corrine and her boyfriend Euen and his family ski in the French Alps. Then they come back on the 3rd and return to Seattle on the 4th. Later on Wednesday I visited Els van Ommen, my uncle’s second wife. She is 8 years older than I am. Then my cousin, Else’s step son, took me along to Heemstede where I stayed the night and met his older brother, my cousin Hans van Ommen. I feasted on the left over Turkey. It tasted like a delayed Thanksgiving surprise.

No white Christmas here. Just wet and dreary. I hung out some more saltwater soaked items from the bow section that just never dry with the salt still in it. I can count on the rain to rinse them while I am away. If I do not get the internet connection before the 31st. I wish every one a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
