I remember going to kindergarten at 5 years old at this old Train Station building whit's is still standing to day being used as a B & B today, always nice to go back and see this building
From there to the big school for 6 years, where I was the star in making trouble ,and was always sitting alone mmmmm........... but there was a lot of fun time after school!
When I was 10 Years old I became involved in Music and learn to play Mouthorgan and became a member of this mouth organ band for several years, and became friend with Geert Wierenga who lived on a farm from his uncle and what a great time that was , going after school there to help and play ! During that Time Geert and Myself we bought a Guitar and slowly on starting to play , After the 6 grades of school I went to a vocational school for 3 years learning a trade lot of fun! in the mean time Geert and myself we started to sing on several places just the two of us . The Vocational school was a good time but many time when there Algebra lessens I would missed school and work at a farm this happened many times , but I still got my diploma !!At this time I learned to play Trumpet and became a member of Drum Band D.O.S played till my Army time, and became a member of the Youth Choir singing tenor ..and also in that Choir was Froukje Luth I would stand behind here
In my last year of this school I was getting drawn to this one Girl her name was Froukje Luth and one Sunday my Cousin Louse Haaima asked for me for Froukje to come out side ( she was at her Friends house) and see came out side and after a short time I give her a kiss , and then she went back in to the house , Today Fran still remembers the tree where we where kissing each other! its still there!! Every Sunday morning I would see Fran sitting in the Church with her Mom and dad , and i would be sitting upstairs with my Dad, and after Church we had practice with our youth Choir where Fran was singing Alto and I was singing tenor , I still have the sheet music where she wrote on ( niet zo trillen met je benen) don't shake so much !
