The King Cruise

There was another King Cruise today. It's a meeting for American cars, very cool and really the only one of its kind in Amsterdam. Initially I wanted to drive up with my Mustang but the weather forecast was really shit and then one of my rear tyres deflated so my car ain't going nowhere anytime soon :-/ But my other car was fine so i went to have a look. The weather turned out to be really nice and, surprise surprise, Simone said she'd come along! Cool :-)

We got there a bit too early but that way some cool cars were easy to photograph and we could also see and hear them arriving, which was cool.

There were at least 4 7123 Mustangs which is a lot, I have never seen so many early 70's Mustangs in one meeting.

Here are some photos I took. Enjoy!












Engine of the above '55 Chevy.





Just before we left I spotted this 'vette. I walked up and had a chat with the owners. They let me take a seat behind the wheel which was a bit of an adventure since the cabin is surprisingly small! But also their steering column was fixed and normally it could've gone up a bit more. I reckon I'll fit in one with a flexible steering wheel and a seat that can go back. Anyway, it was really cool to be behind the wheel, very cool car, real 2 seater sports car!

More pie

I made another chocolate-caramel pie for tonight's visitors. Our families are coming over for my birthday.

While it was still quiet before the guests arrived, Silver sat on the couch with us,

Silver is very good in a room full of people now, not scared anymore. He also enjoyed playing with the gift wrapping.

The pot with cat-candy was also very attractive though but he hasn't figured out how to open it yet ;-)

Going to town

I took the bus to work today so that I can enjoy some alcoholic substances tonight. That's planning ahead folks! ;-)

It's been raining a LOT lately.

Obviously there's still some sun in between the horrific showers.

I'm preparing for making a floor in my garage. I need some metal poles that the floor can rest on. So I investigated sizes and prices. I think I'll go with the square 70x70x3mm beams. It can handle 5 tonnes. Not sure if I should get 6 or 8...

So, after work I took the tram to my old place and walked into town from there. I've always enjoyed that walk a lot.

It gets you through the nices old parts of town. On a sunny afternoon like today's that's real nice!

When I got to Mulligans I immediately ordered a pint of Guinness. That's been a while!

Then my buddy Mic arrived and after we had one more pint we went out to get some Indian food. That had been a loooong while too!

And then back to Mulligans for a few whiskeys. Mmmmmmh.

Soon after the music started we left. We are old and get tired quick ;-)

That was a very nice evening!

The glasses

Something happened with glasses today. I'll only tell you that it is not me who's getting them ;-)

Apart from that there are no pictures to share today. Maybe tomorrow!

It's my birthday! :-)

YAY! Today's my birthday and Simone got me this bluetooth speaker for in my garage :-)

And the diet people made me this graphic after adding this weeks weigh-in.

My pies looked awesome :-)

Chocolate-caramel goodness :-)

Work got me a pressy, too :-)

And I got a few cards.

The pies

I made chocolate-caramel pies in the evening to take to work tomorrow. My colleagues don't expect anything less from my now ;-)

Silver was being his adorable little self. He doesn't realise how much joy he gives us every single day.

The cactus

I finally got around to giving my little cactus a new pot. It's been in this little one for over 10 years now.
