Artist's Description

Phew!!
For a week, I was engrossed in the happening in Gouda (Yes! Darn it! Where the CHEESE comes from!)
To try and do something about the bad press that was building up about Gouda, this energetic team of people, made a huge number of Gouda residents laugh and smile and put posters up, all over the city.
.
Now Marien, one of those people, who organised this, is planning to ride up a mountain, in France, three times, for a good cause.
.
The cause is the rehabilitation centre, in the city of Utrecht (not far from Gouda).
50 riders are going to do the ride and they’re looking for sponsors.
.
To tell you the truth, during this last year, whenever the phone has rung at lunch-time or dinner-time and the person has asked for “Joh -hen – nas” (Doing their very best to pronounce my full first name correctly.) I have cut them short and explained that, while I was working, I could never say: No.
.
It got out of hand. I lost track of how many charities I was supporting. (
A few of them simply automatically deducting donations, from my account – as I’d agreed to, when I was still earning a salary.
)
.
Yes. I won a car, via the ‘Deaf and Blind Children School’s raffle’, in the early seventies, and I still buy their tickets, but I have to be sensible, now!
.
So……….IF you are in a position to sponsor these 50 riders, would you mind doing so, please?? :)
.
It is, of course, yet another good cause!!
.
In order to write about this, I looked for pictures of my bikes.
I have just been given two extra ones, as encouragement, to start riding again. So, I now own three bikes and a car.
.
About five years ago, when involved in promoting the Free Beach Association of NSW (Now defunct.), I certainly bought the calendar of the Naked Bike Ride. That was yet another worthy cause, in my opinion. The calendar, had a great picture of the naked bike riders, in the rain, in Holland!!
Recently another ride took place, in Nimbin. Every time, I consider the thought of participating…..but let me lose 30 k.g. first, with my clothes on.
Don’t panic, neighbours!!
