Every house on the block had a TV antenna

Great TV Shows of the Past

Roof mounted TV antenna, popular in the Yelling up when you could finally see the TV picture. Got a newer model on our roof. Cable TV and satellite is expensive.

Guldens. Deze oude vertrouwde briefjes vind ik veel mooier dan de briefjes die er allemaal na kwamen.

The old Dutch gulden notes. I especially like the 20 gulden note.

guldens, kwartjes, dubbeltjes

Dutch coins before the Euro. They were called "guldens, kwartjes, dubbeltjes, stuivers" centen en rijksdaalders

kachel met kolenvuur, de Jaarsma

With coal. Later it became an oil stove. The Oil-tank was behind the house.

Pippi Långstrump, 1969  with Inger Nilsson; my sister and I used to watch this version of Pippi Longstocking regularly. Bizarre cinematography and staging, unusual music, unheard-of actors.....and a great time to be had by all.

Pippi Longstocking, Original title: Pippi Långstrump, 1969 with Inger Nilsson. One of my few good memories of childhood - watching Pippi Langstrumpf.
