Three performances of the plays over two days April 12 & 13 2019. Story revolves around a long married couple and the humour and drama in issues with regards to remembering things.

David Belrose is the partner of Brian Holden. I know them since 1999. They were the first house guests we had when we moved to Nijmegen, back in September 2003. Pierre moved Friday 12, I moved Monday 15, and Brian and David were picked up at Amsterdam Airport Wednesday 17. Apart from visiting Dutch highlights, we had a house in Bruges (Belgium). From Belgium the two Canadians visited Paris, and returned to Nijmegen.
Amsterdam, 20 September 2003, after an exhausting “touristic” day: dinner at our favourite Mexican restaurant; from left to right: David Belrose, Brian Holden, Pierre Bormans and Luke Barkhuis.
By taxi to the Southampton Harbour Hotel & Spa, room 503:
A tremendous hotel, far better then the Grand Harbour Hotel, where Mary and I spent the night before the cruise to Spain and France in June 2017. Where than the services in bar, restaurant (dinner) and restautant (beakfast) were far from acceptable, here is everything overwhelming. Even after 20 minutes of my arrival, there was already a call on the door if I wanted more towels or anything extra before going to bed!!!
Dinner: as starter: Smoked salmon
Dinner: main course: Caesar salad with chicken bacon.
Friday, 01 March 2019: birthday dinner at Ristorante Italiano “Libero”, with our neighbors Peter and Marie from Nijmegen, my sisters Clarijalke and Ninouchka Barkhuis from Amsterdam, my friend Bart de Boer from Amsterdam, Pierre and yours truly.
