yesterday evening I watched Planet Sinosaur on BBC 1, followed by Who dou you think you sre. All in all, a good solid nights vieuwing. OnPlanet Dinosaur they showed reconstructions of two nre species, the Spinosaur sn the Carcharedototodonsaurus.A beast 17 metres long and weighing several tonnes! I am glad they ar exrinct by now, because if they were around today, I at most would make a tasty snack fo them. This reminds me of a1930'sboys adventurenovel, called Voyage to Mars I used to have. In it, ouintrepid heros travel to Mars by balloon and find there theremnants of an old civilisation. However, it is beset by wilddinosaurslike I have just described. But men would not be men if they did not remember the fomula for gunpowder.Bye, bye, dino's!
all of this gives me time to wonder: What is it good for? Has anything I have done in my life been worthwhile? I'd like to think severeal thingswere, but I'd like to hear your commrnts. I only hope I have not beenboring evereybody out of their skulls.
In closing:at 4.00 hrs. I will walk again!
Thousend times thanks!
To all the followers of the blog, to anyone who has been supportive of Frank or us in the last months and especially after his untimely death we want to say thanks from the bottom of our hearts. In the week after his passing we received so much warmth, stories, care and love, hardly describable. To us it was a very precious and valuable week and it was so good to have Frank at home where so many of his friends could visit him. And all the help, stories and info shared in that week led to a beautiful goodbye ceremony on a beautiful sunny autumn day. For those of you who could not attend, or those of you who wish to reread the funeral speeches, we publice them here (in dutch and english) with some pictures in grateful memory of, and tributed to Frank.We will miss him dearly, thanks for being with him and with us, one way or another,
On behalf of my family and his closest friends, Esther
