This morning I drove to the "Staartse Heide" a nature reserve nearby.
In the middle of the heathland the shepherd and some of his people were
shearing the sheep that they have there.
I wanted to get some pictures for an article on RegioActueel.nl so I drove
the BMW over softsand and mud to get to the site. An interesting trip.
I made some pictures and then I saw a photographer I know, Bertus, who
was walking there with his wife.
When I left he made some pictures of me and mailed them to me.

This afternoon, we got our new (secondhand) car, a Volkswagen Passat.
We bought it from friends who just bought another car and it is very well
maintained and in very good shape.
It is one of the most luxery cars we had, with electric windows, an
electric sunroof, mirrors that are remote adjustable and more.
Now Erika can use the Peugeot (when it is rerpaired) for work and
we keep the Passat for longer trips.

Today on our way home from a special churchservice in Tholen, we were
riding on the "Oesterdam" when suddenly we heard a big bang. The rear
window of our Peugeot 309 was broken in a million small pieces.
Parked after the "big bang"(Cellphone camera)
We stopped and called the ANWB (roadside assistance) but the did not want
to come (where do we pay for ???) so we cleaned up the mess as much as
possible and drove the last 20 km home very slowly with the warning lights
The back of the Peugeot
At home we cleaned up the rest of the glass, got some ducttape
to tape plastic over the opening and then we drove the car to the garage and
put the key and a letter in the mailbox to tell the garage owner we will call
