A trip down memory lane

This is me, a long time ago in 1990. At the time that picture was taken I was living in England and I did a sponsored bike ride.

I remember it was cold when I started off very early in the morning and it was cold and dark when I got back.

I went along all these nice places in North Norfolk and even got as far as Cromer and Kings Lynn! Oh my legs ached the next morning!

And all I collected was some small change wich was then added up to the needed amount by an anonymous giver, so generous of him! But it was all worth it and I have fond memories of that time.

And I got my picture in the Eastern Daily Press. Twice!


Leendert van Gemeren

Dit ben ik, Leendert. Ik ben een beetje ouderwets en houd van dingen die geweest zijn, bijvoorbeeld oude Engelse series op TV zoals All Creatures Great And Small, mechanische horloges, bifocale brillen en oude langspeelplaten. Ik houd niet van moderne dingen en werk regelmatig aan een ouderwetse modelspoorbaan. Ik volg Jezus en schrijf mijn gedichten soms ook over Hem maar ik schrijf ook verhalen over het leven. Excentriek. Op feestjes ben ik vaak te vinden in de keuken.

This is me, Leendert. I am a little bit old-fashioned and I love things from the past, old series like All Creatures Great And Small, mechanical wristwatches, bi-focal glasses and vinyl records for example. I am not keen on modern things and I often work on this old style model railway. I follow Jesus and sometimes write a poem about Him but I also write about my life. Eccentric. You can often find me in the kitchen at parties.
