Some times we let the ducks free in the garden but I don’t really trust them. Today I got the proof that you shouldn’t trust any cat when it comes to fresh duck meat!

When I’m with the ducks Turbo plays the gentle friend from next door…

but here you can already see that he has something special on his mind!

I put the camera away and was on the phone when all of sudden he attacked but the ducks are so used to human beings and the cats that they didn’t react. Then Turbo saw me and immideately turned away….

Boncuk shows no interest but I know that she is even worse!!

Boncuk is turkish and means little pearl….her name should be Seitan which means Devil!! πŸ™‚


Yummy :)

June 27, 2011

this was a nice one!

some times the Holiday Inn take me by surprise πŸ™‚ I came in with my colleague and he was the first one to receive a room. As he doesn’t have a Gold status with them he got a regular room which are always perfect but then I got my room and the lady said; “Today is your lucky day as you will have the Tower Suite!”

I had no clue what it was until I entered the room. wow!!

through the hall you get into the living room with TV/DVD and speakers hanging in the wall

from the living room you enter the bedroom which has a second TV set and a super king size bed.

From the bed room you go into the bath room which is also separated.

on the left side, toilet and Bidet and on the right side bathtube/shower

and the best part…..the paper was hanging properly. πŸ™‚

sometimes you are lucky πŸ™‚

….but the next morning you realize that you only used the bed, the toilet and the bathroom like in all the normal rooms….

New Dormer

June 12, 2011

With some luck with the weather the workers managed to close the roof on Friday and saturday it started to rain πŸ™‚

a bloody big room for the little princess πŸ™‚

4 day exhibition in Paris and I stayed in the Holiday Inn Montparnasse and the paper was hanging properly.

on the last day I went for a walk and then realized that the Eiffel Tower was pretty close….shows how much I see of the cities I visit 😦

The way back was a typical Friday story….The plane came in 15min late which means you lose at least another 30min for disembarking and cleaning of the plane. Then you board and the captain tells you everything is fine and we will arrive in time because he will do some speeding in the air…..then nothing happens and 5 minutes later he comes back with the message that ground control didn’t believe they would make it in time and therefore put us on the next slot…..45min later…

so we finally arrived 75min late in FRA and then the fun continued as our luggage was somewhere in the maze and if this was not enough you come to the parking machine which is broken and had to be repaired. When it was my turn the receipt of €100,- didn’t come out! At this stage you realize that it is friday and more will happen.

Correct! Traffic Jam on the A3 Highway! so at 18:00 I arrived (instead of 16:00) Whatever, it’s Pentecost a long weekend πŸ™‚

Went for 3 days of fun with our club to the Netherlands and I was the “lucky” one to organize the trip which was pretty stressful but at the end everybody was very happy and satisfied.

started in Naarden which is a very old fortified city

the next day we went to Amsterdam for a canal trip, a visit to the Heineken Experience and then to a cheese and clogs manufacturer where we afterwards did a eel smoking contest. of course I was in the winning team πŸ™‚

the last day was a full day of sailing from Hoorn to Volendam and back.

so everything was perfect except the paper which was hanging the wrong way…whatever πŸ™‚

nice lake, dead pike, nice eel, paper hangs correct πŸ™‚
