Winter

this view i had from my kitchen window. think about february 2007

Windmill

This windmill is near the Amstelpark only 5 minutes walking from my home.

Amstel

you can see the windmill in the back. about 10-15 minutes walking.
this area is used for walking biking and inlineskating

My favorite

I found this cat and did not give him a name for 2 months as i tried to find the owner. So after 2 months i needed to give him a name.
I was just looking at the pictures who i took at the meeting at Sue s (Suet) house and saw Ricky52 in a red kilt and red wig. so i called my cat Ricky.
Told mrs Ricky this story at Karlsruhe meeting.
Edinburgh
look at picture beneath in this travelogue

My new cat Vladimir (Vladie)

This was the cat of my birth father. i had no contact with my father for about 20 years and did get an letter that he died end of october 2008.
After talking to his social worker and neighbours my brother and me found out that he had a cat called Vladimir.
It took me 5 weeks to get the cat out of the animal shelter but here he is now taking over my bank.
Ricky and Vladie are not the best friends but i hope they will after a while.

The area i live

For people i met at VT meetings. My facebook name is Dila van Batum. Write were you met me as i only add family and friends.

This picture is taken in the Amstelpark only 10 minutes walking from my home. picture taken around may 2007
