Manhole Covers

A couple of years ago I visited Lisbon with my daughter. 
We went to the former Expo, wich was held in 1998. 
I spotted a manhole cover made especially for this event.

 Since that time I looked in cities for a manhole cover showing someting about the city.
Don't think I only look at the ground :)






And this one is in my hometown Nijmegen

On Pinterest I have a board of manhole covers.

Playing Scrabble

Every weekend I go to my mom's place for a couple of hours.
She is 90 years old, but still lives on her own. Every now and then she bakes delicious cakes

She likes to play Scrabble.

So every weekend we play Scrabble.

Beautiful sky

 This morning I looked outside and there was a beautiful sky.
The sun coloured the vapour trails in beautiful colours.

Jopie Huisman (1922-2000)

Jopie Huisman was born in Workum in the north of the Netherlands in 1922.
During WWII he was forced to work in Germany, he escaped in 1943.
He wanted to be a painter, but he earned not enough so he started a business in old metal and old clothes.
He started to paint objects as clothing and shoes, but also landscapes.

The outside of the museum

The inside


My favorite is the red coat hanging on the clothesline. Have you heard of Jopie before?

The first two pictures were taken from the website of the museum, the other
ones are scanned postcards.
