Friday July 28
it is playing a song, is what I heard Deb say when the laundry was finished. yes we did a load of laundry, and one thing VERY different…time….a load can take up to 4 hrs! In Autumn we bought this Samsung washer/dryer, and have been using it sparingly.
We do have to move the Microwave from the washer/dryer when we use it, because when it spins it shakes more than …( Ill come up with the right word later)
I suggested to put up a clothes line from the new mast to the pilot house, and letting it sun/air dry, but Deb still very much American preferred to dry it on the drying rack inside the boat.
Quite windy today, but the sun keeps peeking out from behind the clouds, so a nice day to do some small maintenance, like finishing up the dimmers for the led strips along the bed and closets.
The weather was pretty Dutch……some clouds, then sun, then 18 drops of rain, then cloud, wind sun 12 drops of rain etc etc etc
I installed the 220V isolated cord through the mast, so we can finish it with the motion detector flood light for the bow.
Then it was time to go to the movies….We got our tickets and before we got our snack I had to visit the toilet, and yes there were special Urinals…..
….look…you see a flag in it, so guys , being guys will aim for that .
This ‘rage’ all started in the early 70’s in the concert building in Maastricht, a janitor saw that one of the urinals has less ‘spillage’ so upon inspection he saw a fly was in the pot. He went to the local factory and they made a line of Urinals now with all kinds of design , quite a few bars have them with their own logo in it.
So back to the snacks….Dutch people do likel their coffee..so there is even a special Starbucks stand in the hall for the one who need it.
.yes we got 2 Grolsch 1/2 liters and a nice bag of Popcorn, for E 10.35 ( $11). Nice prices, unlike in the states. Plus it is fun sipping beer during a movie.
