Childhood Joys

Posted by Dirck on 8 December, 2017

I am a couple of days late with a reference to Sinterklaasje, but if I’m in the “Happy Holidays!” camp, I can hardly strain at that sort of imprecise targeting.  In point of fact, the only connection between the yearly visit of Sinterklaas and his uncomfortably caricatured sidekick and today’s stolen film is piles of Dutch kids (mostly happy), but that’s OK, too.

I visited this joint in 1976, and it was almost unchanged from what you’ve just seen.  I was shocked to see a roller coaster rising above the trees when I drove near to it in 1998, but without a child in tow there was no reason to look in and see what other changes might have transpired.  I may try to keep it that way, because there’s a certain purity of joy to the recollections of my long-ago visit.

Today’s pen: Parker Frontier
Today’s none-the-less-decorative ink: Herbin Perle Noire
