    Gott sei Dank

    September 3, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Eine kleine versteckte Sicherung die kaputt war hat alles stillgelegt. Kostenpunkt 15€ 🤔☹️😆Aber jetzt ist alles klar (hoffe ich) bin heute in der Nähe von Gent in den Ardennen und noch ca 80km von der Küste entfernt. 👌😎Read more

    Wannegem in the Flemish Ardennes

    June 6, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    We packed up our bikes and took the train to Gent. From there we pedaled the 40 kilometers or so to a home we'd rented for a week in Wannegem Belgium. Our friends Manu and Katelijn secured the place for us. It belongs to friends of theirs Trees and Marcel who are on a 3 month odyssey travelling the Silk Road. (next year?)

    If you would like to experience cycling in the Flemish Ardennes go here:

    Good friends, good food, and ice cream.

    Good friends, good food, and ice cream!

    What more to say?

    Well, just a bit. At dinner the other night Manu was describing a novelist who had left the church as 'a failed priest' when a light went off in my head. Yes! I'd been trying to come up with a good answer describing my professional career and was at a loss. Social Services? Agency Administrator? Social Entrepreneur? Program Quality Assessor? Ne. None of those fit the bill. But 'Failed Priest'? Now that's a title to invite conversation!

    In the meantime Nancy has already tired of the conversation and has requested that I stop referring to her as 'a failed pastor's wife'. So please don't bring this up to her...

    "In Flanders Field the Poppies Blow"

    September 14, 2018 in Belgium ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    This cemetery commemorates the 411 American servicemen who died in Belgium during WWI. The US did not enter the war until 1917, one year before the Armistice. We watched a movie explaining how the Belgian people are still very grateful, explaining the grave adoption program. They learn about "their" serviceman, bring flowers, and send messages to family if any are still alive. Every year on our Memorial Day, the children sing our National Anthem. It is very moving to hear about it. The poem, In Flanders Fields, was written by Canadian Lt Col John McCrae, army physician.

    We were happy to see a tour bus visiting the cemetery while we were there.
