Thank you, John and Cherri

I'm sure glad that the Harley Davidson 'oil-can light set' gave you such a thrill and I can't wait to see pictures of it hanging in your pool room or outside in your bar this summer, but it was only a very small token of appreciation for having Tante Magda and me last week. From Dad's first surprise at seeing me (I don't know how you kept that secret so well), to the many guests you let tramp through your house -see Dad's 80th birthday pics on Facebook:, to the many big and little things you did for our comfort, this post's for you. Thanks, eh? - Marijke (I know I speak for Tante Magda, too)

Story in the Snow

Once upon a time, in faroff Guelph, Ontario, Canada, a big black dog named Bear galloped to the rescue of what he thought was a helpless human in the snow. As he approached, he found that it was only Oma Marijke (visiting from faroff hot South Carolina) making snow angels!

By the way, it's hard to get photographs of snow to look as white as it really is, isn't it! This day was a little overcast, for sure but maybe if I studied my camera manual a bit more I'd have better results. Any tips anyone? ... OM

You fine folks in South Carolina will appreciate who this is. Your one and only US Ambassador to Canada David Wilkins. On the occasion of a delegation from Greenville visiting Ottawa and touring my worldclass transit system(and our social housing), the Ambassador and his wife invited some Ottawa staff and councillors to a reception at his residence. Armed with local knowledge about a new pedestrian bridge and a revitalized downtown in Greenville coupled with a few strategically placed y'alls I managed to get a personal tour of the residence - a lovely mansion in Ottawa's premiere neighbourhood of Rockcliffe.

baker laker 2007

it was a crazy week! what do you do with seven children when the oldest is three? daily run down: 36 diaper changes, 20 hours of breast feeding, 5 pack-n-plays and one moses bassinet, and a four high chair assembly line at each meal.

Marijke, Magda and Nancy decided to take on a project and crocheted this lovely creation for Tante Magda. Truly a joint effort with most of the work completed by the m&m's of the team!!!

Tante Magda will no doubt appreciate it!!
