Happy birthday Queen Elizabeth!

Today it is the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth. On this beautiful day I wish you a happy birthday, may God bless you for the coming years. As you can see we have put the flag out for you over here in The Netherlands.

You see, I have a thing for England, I love your country for many reasons. First I have some very dear friends over there. And then there is the food, the landscape, beautiful steam trains, pubs, bitters and ales.

So this year I will drink to your health with that lovely pewter tankard I bought in Norwich a few years ago. I hope you have a very nice day with family and presents surrounding you. Dear Queen, you can be very proud of the country you reign over. I hope you love it as much as I do. Cheers!



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.
