Voor de Tesselaar

Deze post zal voor de Texelaar wat leuker zijn dan voor de mensen van de overkant maar toch leuk om wat te weten over deze schapenboet. Op de foto zie je links Kees Duin samen met Gerardus Nicolaas Witte van de Baron aan het betonstorten, dit met de bedoeling om uiteindelijk de boet weer geheel in originele staat te brengen. In de kraan Hendrikus Nicolaas Witte van de Baron. De Baron is een van de vele bijnamen die er op Texel zijn en ik kan dan nog als extra toevoegen dat de foto is gemaakt door Theodorus Johannes Witte van de Baron (Dick), al met al een gebroederlijk samenzijn.

This post is more understandable for local people but nevertheless it could be interesting for others. This is the restoration of an original Texel sheepbarn. On the left the owner next to him my brother and in the crane another brother. Yes I have many brothers and sisters and the nickname of our family is something like "The Baron". There are a lot of nicknames on this island that is why I mentioned it. I hope the English readers understand something of this post now, English is not my strong point but I try. And thinking about it "What are my strong points"?

Interesting photo. I can't tell much from the translation so I used my imagination. They are repairing a dike. LOL

hard working photo, I love the previous photos.

I think you are a good photographer and also you must know something about templates because you have a template that large photos will fit into and I've been trying to do that for ages and can't get it. Did you widen something or is it a special template. Also I think you translate good!
Looks like a lot of work and hope we can see the finished barn.

Thanks for your help. Can't believe stretch denim was right under my nose. On my test blog it works well. I like my present template because it has the little lines to frame the photo but I can't seem to get it right with that template However I'm happy with the stretch denim. I'll change soon. Thanks again!
