Zeg, we kennen elkaar al veel meer dan 50 jaar!!
Beste wensen, voor een gezond, gezellig, gelukkig 2008.
This has been sent to
-the best friend, I used to walk to school with in Gouda,
-to the girl who shared a cabin with, on the way to Australia,
-the girl on whom I practised being a teacher, when Mr Berretty used to leave me in charge, of my fellow-pupils, for the last half hour of school, on Wednesday mornings, in 1956!
(She wrote I was strict. Well. That would then have been the last time!!)
There’s a post script. I’ve also sent this to a lady in Amsterdam, who also knew me, that long ago, in Gouda. Her grandparents were a refuge for my father, when he left home, at a young age.
This lady, too, has commented on how I was, as a young boy, who ‘bossed’ other kids around a little bit, destined to become a teacher. :)
