Two lips


Sometime today we will receive visitors from Dutchland. It is bound to become a late night. It is also my youngest daughter's 23rd, so it will be a busy night. Spare a thought, please.


Anyhow, after the initial rush, the rest of the weekend will be for recovering. The original purpose of weekends. May you all catch your breath.


With this picture, I experimented with lighting the subject with a LED laser flashlight. I thought this one is good enough to post. The frame just happened - guilty as charged.

DITTO Astrid's comment. And what a fine tribute to Dutchland. More Dutch you cannot get, even with the frame. You've become a Dutch Master in your own style, Louis. smile
Louis: Dutch master? So why am I not filthy rich? It must be because I give the stuff away smile

Heeeeel mooi - een fijn welkom voor je Nederlandse gasten - en een grappig titel - ik wens jullie allen een "rauschende Nacht" (a German phrase, sounds a bit like "after the initial rush)- ja, en dan een beetje ontspanning! Vanavond ik zal naar 'La Traviata' luisteren in Essen.
Louis: Hopend dat je van de La Traviata genoten had. Bedankt voor de commentaar, Philine.

You will be able to endlessly discuss the small nuances between the two languages, Aff and Dutchikaans.
Louis: We tend to discuss the nuances of their beers and our wines, Gutteridge. And we do it in Dutch. Sorry for the mix-up, at least it was another stooge.

Happy birthday to your daughter.Whatever an LED laser flashlight is, it seems to work

Book Sale weekend for us!
Louis: Go to some shop that sells camping stuff and ask them about a LED laser flashlight. You just may want to buy one. Thanks for the comment Bill.
I like the presentation Louis, the lighting has worked out well, too! Happy Birthday for your youngest! smile
