Town Today

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Jun-26-2004



Sitting on the arm of the couch in the living room, talking to The Father on the telephone, I can hear a terrible racket outside, coming nearer to our house.

As I chat away, a group of about 50 bikers passes not 2 meters away from the window I am looking out of. They are all wearing orange clothing. Their faces are painted orange. They have silly ( read : stupid) orange hats on and their bikes are festooned with acid orange balloons.

Each biker also has a special horn or tooter of some sort, which when pushed, bellows like a cow.

I feel like I’m sitting in the middle of a cattle stampede, something right out of Rawhide.

    (I loathe voetbal but must confess Bente is now wearing a Hup Holland tattoo (courtesy of McDonalds!) and has red-white-blue paint on her face)
    Btw I would love a horn like that!

  2. sue Said,

    Yep, the horns were pretty neat. Combined with the sounds of the bikes rattling over cobblestones, it really did sound like a mob of cows going by-

    And I shall be watching the match with Mike- and Han shall be calling after the match to catch the final score !
