The tags

I went to my Mustang to make better pics of some tags I recently discovered. This here is the buck tag. No idea (yet) what those codes mean (except for some, like the VIN of course).

And this is the valve cover sticker. I believe it tells me things about the engine... We'll see.

In the afternoon I took Simone to my hopefully new garage. I spoke to one of the owners who's already settled and made ceilings. He is also going to put an oldtimer in. Cool! :-)

The powder-food

So I've started another diet yesterday. I was fixing today's menu...


Because of my cold I wasn't feeling great and I'm also really tired. I sat on the couch a bit and Silver kept me company. He's the best :-)

The Marco Borsato concert

Today I have started my diet. It's back to little bags with powder food. Hello proteines... I had some sort of oatmeal for breakfast. It could be worse...

For lunch I had this pudding. It actually tasted very nice. I had to let it stiffen up for an hour in the fridge. In between I had a drink that also tasted pretty good.

And for dinner I had this ham/cheese pancake which also tasted very nice. I ate beetroot with it.

In the evening Simone and I went to a concert of Marco Borsato, a Dutch singer. I was able to get cheap last minute tickets and jumped on the opportunity to surprise Simone as she likes him a lot.

We sat far away but the sound was still good and we could see on the side-screens as well.

There were a lot of guest performances. Like this one from Belgium: Clouseau.

Trijntje Oosterhuis.

Matt Simons.

Roel van Velzen.

Ronnie Flex.

Maan.

Elske de Wal.

The show was surprisingly nice. You could hear what he was singing very well which is important with his songs.

We had a lovely evening :-)

DJ Lennart

This is my colleague Lennart. He is volunteering as a DJ on a local station. Every Thursday arvo we turn on the internet radio replay and enjoy his 2 hour show :-)

And then, a storm was brewing.

Meeting another Mustang owner

I met this guy called Jeroen today. I know him from the 7173MUSTANGS.com forum and he messaged me that he was close by and asked if I wanted to meet up, how nice! So I took a few hours off and we took my Mustang for a spin. It was the best run ever: Good start, good idle, nice driving, great stuff! Jeroen was a little impressed with my car complimenting on the looks and also the way it sounds ;-)

I let him look at my car as he was looking for a few references for his convertible. As he was going along he pointed out that my original buck-tag is still there. I hadn't even noticed! I need to clean it up and get a better picture as the stuff on the tag tells me something about the car, maybe even stuff I don't know yet. Cool!

He also brought me a copy of the '73 facts and specs manual. It's an old re-print but that's OK. I thought that was mighty nice of him to do!

Tanja's farewell dinner

Today after work a bunch of colleagues and I went to a restaurant called "Pont 13" for Tanja's farewell dinner. It's opposite the NDSM area where I used to work.

I finally got close to this building. It's an old oil-rig turned into a restaurant.

Our restaurant is in a restored ferry that used to run on steam. It looked really nice inside.

But since the weather is great we all sat outside. It was a very fun evening with nice food.

At some point this little bumble bee came to sit in between me and my colleague Ernst. I think it wanted a rest. After just sitting there for 5 minutes it flew away again. A lovely little visitor :-)

The Mustang cover

Someone I know through 7173MUSTANGS.com has his convertible on the front of one of Europe's leading hotrod magazines.

So I bought a copy, maybe I can have mine in a magazine someday as well :-)
