Knowledge pursues me but I am faster.......

If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit.......

.......One day, we will look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject…

Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

Pancakes with Puddlepuff,
Rain on the canals,
Batman with his brolly up,
Playing cards with pals .....

.....oh yes and the tourist shops had cows grazing on the ceiling .....

Last weekend I made a flying visit to Amsterdam.

Met Puff for lunch, had a canal boat cruise and sheltered from the rain in a brown cafe and played a few games of cards before going out to dinner ......

.....I love Amsterdam :)

I can't stand Amsterdam.
But would've popped over, had I'd known.
You would've been my excuse for not attending that driver's meeting on Sunday.

MaggieD says:

Thanks H and T :)

Sprocket this is the special dutch version of snap (I can't pronounce the actual word, or for that matter play the game, so I spent a lot of time in that pose) ....

Joker, I was only in Amsterdam for one full day, and wasn't sure how long I would be free for lunch. I know you and Anja live a good 60 miles away so thought I'd wait until February half term when I plan a longer trip out and hope to meet up with you, Anja and Boet :)

Puff, so good to meet you at last, thanks for taking the time to pop into town. Even bigger thanks for the beautiful scarf and braclets ... I had a lovely lunch ..... bacon and apple panckes, mmmmm :)

Geo, yes photos, I took photos. Well, I thought I had to, after bringing my camera to lunch with Puff and then failing to take any pics of him (too caught up with chatting, always my downfall) I thought I had better snap a few things along the way for the rest of the afternoon ....

Hey MAggieD thanks for the inspiration for dinner tonight. :-) Pancakes sound yumm.

I may never get to Amsterdam but this is certainly inspiring me to add it to the list should I ever get to Europe. Thanks.
