Traditions!


Mom showing pictures: "See, in this one you can see that I was soooo skinny even after just having had my 6th child!"



More pictures... Mom's friend from work back in the day.



Let's take a closer look: This is taken from the previous picture, zoomed in, and rotated to be upright for the pictures...



I can recognise these three. ...and probably one more, but there is no corresponding one in these albums (so far...).



A nice tour of the cheese factory's bowling lanes... Mom: "They won't sell it by the slice!" That's mom's dad's cousin in the brown coat, and her family had the cheese company.



That's a lot of cheese...



"Never ask a woman about her weight." One of life's truths. But if you put four of them together in front of a scale...



A model city. The houses may be to scale, but the streets are not! The sign in the background (reversed, it's facing the incoming tourists) says "MADURODAM" (the first M is hidden)



Tante Lia's on a motorcycle. ...probably a "brommer", though...



A calm river cruise, with a car on the deck! This is in the Zaans Schans near Amsterdam, and the houses were used as the subject in that flower competition in Limmen.



"DE HUISMAN" Hey! ...I'm D. Huysmans... This looks like part of a windmill? This was actually a mustard factory...
