An update on the de-cluttering. Today the council will collect waste paper. And they will be in for a nice surprise, while I have empty space in my garage again. And because I met Lawrance last night when he was in Den Oever, I got the newest Waterways World magazine, so I will definitely have Read More →

I get the feeling that the process of ordering the boat, and supervising the building, will be the easiest part of the job…! In the last two weeks my scanner (and I) worked overtime. Beside having a heap of books, I also have a fair amount of magazines. And they have to go as well. Read More →
