Ouwe Sunder







On the 12th of December it is "Old Sinterklaas", a local event. People go out on the street and make a satire, mostly about local politics.

Interesting celebration. Reminds me of a certain Mardi Gras parade in Mobile, Ala. So isn't this your second Christmas type celebration? Do you celebrate the birth of Christ on Dec 25? Does Dot ask too many questions? lol
About the picnic table. Yes it is mine. My sister and her husband used to make concrete tables and they gave this one to us. My sister made beautiful designs on top of each one.

Hi Dick,
Looks like fun!I suppose for most of us,local politics is a good subject for satire or politics in general for that matter.
