OT - Liberation Day

Labeled OT ... For the Kanukistani here. Thanks again! Today it's 66 years that the Germans occupying Holland surrendered to Canadian Lieutenant-General Foulkes in my home town of Wageningen.
And it is my sister's birthday ...

Gelukkige verjaardag, zus! Je broer is een goede mens.

If that works as is, good. If it's funny, better. And she can't blame you for it either.

Hi Edward: She doesn't read this group, and your Dutch is fine enough. (1 slight correction: "een goed mens" There was 1 e too many, but who counts?

OH:
Operation Gambit is working perfectly. Now you can relay it to her in notice of your celebration, her distant admirer and the deplorable state of Dutch language knowledge in this example.
She'll never notice the last line.

And thanks fro the tulips the Dutch royal family and the Netherlands tulip growers association send every year to Ottawa, which form the nucleus of the Canadian tulip festival. I was there in the early 80s when I lived in ottawa. Truly spectacular.

A true heartwarming story. I sent the article to here. She was interested.
My wife's ex's family is from Holland. Her son spent time one summer there. Where the workers, in a shop of some kind, threw him into a canal as a rite of passage of some kind. He did not appreciate it. He considered it a form of Dutch barbarism. Everybody laughed at that one.
My wife still cooks up aebleskiver on a semi regular basis. I LOVE those things! I am not really hooked up to Dutch culture. But many years ago, I was at a Dutch festival of some kind in York, PA. There were a bunch of Dutch pastry stands. I went from stand to stand and had some pastry. After about 12 such culinary treats, I got sick. Such is youth! LOL If I tried that now, it would be fatal.

I have no idea why or what that custom is. Never heard of it.

Again, I have never heard of aebleskiver. There are several dishes that are tradionally Dutch - appeltaart, oliebollen, nasi goreng are among the ones I like. Overcooked endives and spinach not so much.

My intake is greatly reduced nowadays as well.

Cool. That reminds me of the miles(?) of flowers that used to line I-5 in Carlsbad, CA in me yout. It's down to 50 acres now and it's a fee tourista attraction. (Sorry for the scat humor. ;) It's still a sight to see, though. http://www.theflowerfields.com/history.html You drove past it at the wrong time, old pal.
