… is growing fast and learning much. He and some of his sisters and brothers are still united with their mother and grandmother. He is 10 weeks old now.
The photos were sent to me by Ingeborg Charmant-Wagemans.
One of the young blackbirds died within 2 days after leaving the nest …
Our last chicken died a year ago. What to do with an empty chicken run ? Well it’s easy; fill it with some new chickens ! So I bought 3 chicken-sisters …
They’re a mixture of Sussex and Australorp. A brown, a black and a white one.
Recommended ! Because we are all just people ….

I was on my way to downtown Vlissingen, to visit the festivities on Liberation Day. Then I found out I had to pass road blocks to get there ……
I don’t know why I hate this kind of situations so much. Maybe it’s just because I’m Dutch and stubborn. In my view all the guards in their “uniforms” don’t have any clue what they are doing. I asked one of them why I was not allowed to walk in my own city without being checked. He said ; “We have to do this, it’s for your own safety”. They even checked some perambulators ….
They are the same shitheads as these guys …..”Just doing their job”.
70 years ago, there were only a few who didn’t compromise.
I turned around and went back home …. they can leave the festivities in their asshole !
What would you do ?
one day old
… in our pear tree
… is busy trying to get out of her egg.
… in the Netherlands. From now on, we have a King ! Traditionally the streets are legally free to sell your old stuff (without any regulations).
There was an old NSU Quickly for sale !
Also “streetartists” are allowed to earn some money.

For the one’s who have a lot of time and are curious to see how young dogs are learning to behave as young dogs I made this video

He has to stay with his mother for a few weeks ….
… is flowering. So it’s time to wear my Vibram Five Fingers and do some maintenance on my velomobile. Temperatures are rising and the days are getting longer and longer. The sunset is at 06.30 AM , so photographers have to get up early for their “golden hour”. I have a few days off, so took this photo around noon because I hate to get out of bed early ;-)
… for keeping stuff organized. All about my cycling will be mentioned at wimharwigcycling . So if you’re only interested in cycling stuff …. change you’re settings
… and it’s called wimharwigphoto . I have too many hobbies that don’t fall under the category “views in the life of an old recumbent cyclist”.
So from now on you can follow my photowork on wimharwigphoto !
The last welcome from Mo to me (coming home after the late shift) was yesterday. This morning Rea came by to say farewell.
Today we all said farewell to Mo. The vet is a very friendly lady. The first injection made him fall asleep and 5 minutes later the second injection stopped his heart. Now I have a feeling as if I’ve murdered my best friend ….. just hoping it’ll pass.
This is a slide show for the ones who knew him.

2 years ago …… time flies.
There must be beer where you’re now, so put on a clean T-shirt (G-star RAW) and have a beer. Just relax and listen to what your friends are all talking about. They know, feel and realize you still belong to their group. That’s beyond doubt !
Thanks to some painkillers prescribed by the vet, he is able to go for a short walk. Dogs are men’s best friend and I don’t like to see my best friend die a slow and painful death……
…. is outside in the garden and my assistant is a dog
I had to remove the rear wheel to renew the “clothes hanger”.
Only few tools are needed for a velomobile …..
So now it was my turn ….
Thanks to all the blogging of velomobile-owners, I was informed of this little inconvenience that the older velomobiles have. For some days I heard a strange noise behind my back, when I made a turn to the left with my Quest velomobile. Two days ago I found out that there was a crack in the “clothes hanger” and I send an email to velomobiel.nl.
Yesterday a new one arrived …. guarantee, so no costs involved. That’s what I call service
So now all I have to do is installing the new strengthened “clothes hanger”.
…. by making bicycles of them ! I think it’s the best way to practice Cradle-to-Cradle on a scrapyard. Bicycledbikes.com is trying to set up a project and do it ! When reading te comments beneath the YouTube-video, it is clear that people need a lot more information about the consequences for the environment.

I took this B/W photo 25 years ago. The days when Lightroom was Darkroom
a nice presentation of the third generation of this record-machine. I can’t see how the drive-train is designed, but the fairing is beautiful ….
It was cold this morning. When I stopped to make this photo of the sunrise, I stayed in my velomobile because of the freezing cold. Positive effect of the cold weather is that the air is bright and clear; perfect for a landscape …. especial during sunrise at 06.30 AM !
