My "gig", in FrenchsForest- the Neerlandia Club. by 

I spent some hours, again, today, Sunday 21 November, providing the background music, in the Dutch Australian Society, Neerlandia Club House.
My take on it: I might as well sit and play those favourite 1950s, 1960s tunes, mixed with even older Dutch ones, in the club, as, at home. Something which I’ve done, for many, many years. (54!).
It’s fun to listen in to the conversations, in a mixture of Dutch and English – usually, still about the Dutch Immigration Experience – because that is what the members have in common.
I’ll be there on December 5th, when St Nicholas drops in, while the Punch and Judy Show (The Dutch Version, entertains the children.).
NOTE: Took the opportunity to take photo, during a quieter moment. Depending on our Sydney weather, during this last month of ‘Spring’, patronage, on a Sunday, varies.

In 1969, I enrolled in the “Art Teachers Conversion Course”. It was my first experience of formal art lessons. Soon other interests prevailed, until, I had lunch, in Hazelhurst and then enjoyed the art classes there. Culminating in my exhibition, in 2008.

  • Thank you, LisaBeth! Was not expecting this quick response. I reckon that it’s just right, for old friends (and new ones), to meet up.
