Our Wonderful Dutch Friends

We just had a wonderful evening with our Dutch friends from The Netherlands. I made an OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAmerican dinner for them. With traveling they had been eating restaurant food and they said it tasted really good. I hope it did. To Jerry and me it tasted good but then we’re American! Here is Tom, his girlfriend, Ellen, Vivian and Jasper. What a delightful time we had.

We became friends when they lived here over 20 years ago! Tom and Jasper were in Dutch Friendselementary school! We became very good friends and after they returned to The Netherlands we went to visit them! We took a gift to the boys: a gum ball machine! Here’s a picture of the Tom and Jasper back then. It was in 1994!

Friends are a gift from God.
