Artist's Description

One last time to state that I really enjoyed playing the St Nicholas (Sinterklaas-) songs, in the retirement village, this time. It is so much better, when accompanied by someone else, especially someone who plays as well as Hanna does.

(My playing is VERY basic. Teacher said in about 1958: ’That’s as far as I can take you.’)

It suited my purpose. Good enough to have the pupils in all those classes between 1964 and 2001, sing along.
Today it is actually Sinterklaasdag.
Right now, as Amsterdam is 10 hours behind us in Sydney, Sinterklaas is riding his white stallion across the roof-tops of the Netherlands, and his Black Pete, is lowering himself down the chimneys, leaving presents for the good children and taking away the bad ones, in his bag, to beat them, back, in Spain with the birch sticks he’s carrying.
.
AND NOW it’s December 2010.
.
Sinterklaas, this year, in the Abel Tasman Village, had an audience with just the residents.
.
He was, as always, very busy……….
.
Read about it, in the Holland Focus magazine…….
.
Full of Sinterklaases and other good things!!
