…this site is being renovated!
As you might know, I finally got my polyps out,
(wie zijn neus schendt, schendt zijn aangezicht)
And sadly my uncle Piet passed away (11/09/1926 – 17/04/16)
This is likely the last picture taken of him a good 2 weeks before he died.
On a positive note, we got all dolled up for a 70’s party in ‘songs of the parlour’
…..but you always knew I was a handsome fellow, didn’t you?
We had a great time in the Raayberg in Bergen op Zoom where we had our family reunion.
Everyone belongong to the Bakx (my mothers side) clan was there and most of the ones married into this marvelous family.
There was a great athmosphere and there was a lot of catching up to do. From the sad death of cousin Jan, kids having near misses in Brussels airport during the bombings to ‘Oom Piet’ who sadly died not to longer afterwards. My father (91 in May) is the sole title holder to the older generation now. He still made it to the reunion!
Before we knew it, it was time to go home. Hopefully we can do it next year again.
Thanks to Ria, Ad and Liset who made most of the arrangements.
Please look through the pictures and see if you can get the flovour of the day.
