Birthday and fuel problems

Friday August 11

Today was the birthday of Lindy,  Lindy and her family stayed with us in Ohio the week before we left to Europe.   Their last day, Sunday , they went to Vegas to start their camper trip through the west and we went to Schiphol to go to the boat.

Being up early I decided to text Lindy a happy birthday and to my surprise she reacted, while normally on a non school day, she would never wake up before lunch time.  Asking what she wanted for her birthday she replied Euro’s for the art supplies.  OK…But I also know she likes chocolate, so I got on shore, jumped on the bike and pedaled to Jamin to buy some chocolate coins.

Deb and I got ready after this to drive to  the Michielsen’s in Waddinxveen. When I stepped in the little Fiat 500, I saw that the fuel gauge was on low, so first stop ….Gas station.  pushed the nozzle in, pressed the handle and click , darn, move the nozzle, darn sensitive nozzles……press the handle and again after a few drops click …so I kept doing this until I had about 4 liters in.  At that point, 5 minutes later, I decide to give up and try another gas station.  I walked in paid, got back in the car and told Deb about it, and she said yes next station.  I stop at the exit, look to the dash and the gauge is 3/4 ….   I shake my head and think what the frell…I look closer . and I see it is the temperature gauge, so I mistook the temperature gauge for the fuel gauge, and putzed around trying to fill up a full tank.  I am needing to wear glasses more.

In Waddinxveen Linda was waiting for us to cut her Chocolate cake, which seems a bit of a problem 🙂
