Replacing the fuel pump / Shopping in Alkmaar

Every second Saturday is kinda becoming "Mustang" day for me, which I don't mind at all! So today I was going to continue where I left 2 weeks ago, finish replacing the fuel pump!

Now that I had the right, American, tools it was quite easy to remove the old one. Here you see the old one and the new one. I also replaced the old piece of hose.

And there it is, all hooked up and ready to go. I cranked 4-5 times and the next time it started and eventually ran nice and smooth. This was a nice little project.

Just outside of the garage I bumped into this Oldsmobile.

Not a bad looking car, dunno what year it is... Think close to mine, 1973, I guess, maybe?

Upon closer inspection I found grass growing underneath the window trim. That's usually not a very good sign... Also the moist on the inside is not very good. This car is not maintained very well...

Driving home I passed my soon-to-be office. I'm gonna be on the 17th floor in a few weeks :-)

When Simone came home she quickly changed and we drove to Alkmaar for some shopping. I am desperate for new shoes and a new wintercoat. This building is where they used to weigh everything and the square is known for it's cheese market.

This is the numero uno shopping street of Alkmaar. I succeeded in my quest of finding new shoes and a coat. Me happy :-)

Afterwards we visited Ilse and Cassie coz they were having their housewarming.

Another incredibly exciting day.

Oh! I actually had my appraisal yesterday and it went quite well. None of last year's bullshit. This working year is really flying by which must be a good sign :-)

The new tunnel

The new tunnel underneath the station was opened last weekend. It's a fantastic shortcut to get into town when you come from the ferry.

One side is tiled with hand painted tiles picturing old Dutch ships in rough seas. Very nice!

And in other news I have sold my electric guitar tonight. I wasn't using it anymore and I can use the money for better things. It leaves a big empty space where it used to hang...
