HappyA few weeks ago I received a car, well sort of a car.

Technically it’s a quadricycle but Christa and I have decided to call it a car. It has a two stroke, two cylinder Diesel engine which makes a lot of noise and the top speed is only 35 mph but who cares, I can finally go from A to B without hurting my back on a moped and I get to stay dry too.

And even though it’s a second hand and it hasĀ a few cracks in the plastic bumpers and it’s smells funny I am still -even after a few weeks- so excited to have this car.

When I start it, it shudders and the pedal is extremely sensitive when moving in reverse but all that doesn’t matter, important is that I like it very much and it has contributed to my good mood beyond believe. Freedom at 71 miles to the gallon, can you just imagine how far I can go with one load of Diesel?

This morning I went for weekend shoppings and I came home with two crates full with groceries, 6 bottles of fizzy drinks, 4 pizzas and lots of other stuff. It’s just amazing how much fits in it. I won’t be able to open a bottle of those drinks for a while because of the lack of suspension on this car but I don’t mind, I can wait. Technically this car is not perfect and it’s not even a car but I think it’s perfect!

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.
