Family Day

Spent the afternoon elsewhere in Holland at a music-related event where the rest of the family was present as well. Afterwards, we all had dinner together.

The same happened on the day of my mother's funeral, when we got a Chinese take-away which the 12 of us partook of together. For the moment, my entries will be purely brief notices on the day's events, if they are noteworthy (in my mind), with pointers to any pictures on the Flickr.com site (link in sidebar). I have now placed yesterday's pics on a map, so you have an idea whereabouts they were taken. Someone asked about windturbines - they can be seen clearly on the picture labelled "Rhein Bridge Emmerich".

I cannot put the pictures of family events on a public photosite, if only because there are children present in them.

It's good to know you haven't disappeared completely Guido! It must be nice to catch up with your family after being up in Stornoway so long. Quite understandable about the photos of family, you never know who's looking at them. Jeannette xx

Nice to hear from you Guido, you are often in my thoughts, wondering where you are, how you are doing. I am glad that you are managing to spend time with your family.

Take care my friend

I like to imagine what you look like Guido...I am going back to that photo of your feet in Stornoway. (Footloose and fancy free..Lol!)   I much prefer you being an enigma.  Its intriguing.
Smashing photos yesterday...looking forward to seeing some more soon.

There is no requirement ever for anyone to put personal family photos on a public internet site, so please know that you have no need to explain and it's quite understood.

I am glad that 12 of you could partake of Chinese takeout.  It actually sounds likea good idea, today the anniversary of my father's birth (he'd have been 75).  A music-related event, well, I hope it was fulfilling for you and your family.

I'm glad you could be with them for your mother's funeral, also.

One day at a time.  Hang in there, and know I'm glad to hear of your updates and that you're having connections in your life, in a variety of ways.  -- Robin
