With André and A Little Scooter, The World Became Smaller

A Cute Little Story From Santa Doug

While in Maastricht this past June and July, we attended André's Concert on July 4th. I had my little Scooter with me and one of the usherettes (they call them Piccolos) took the scooter and stored it for me during the concert, then brought it back to me after the concert. She, (Henrike) fell in love with the Scooter and rode it around the Vrijthof several times before she reluctantly gave it back. After returning it, we talked and had a nice visit ... before saying good bye we invited her to come see us if she was ever in the states.

Sometime after returning home, she contacted me to let me know that she and her boyfriend Jeroen were coming to the states! They came and visited JoAnn and me about 3 weeks ago. Prior to coming to see us, they were in Roanoke visiting Jeroen's brother who is attending college there.

Here are a few pictures we took while they were here. Included is a photo of Henrike sitting on the scooter at the concert on the Vrijthof in Maastricht, and some with Henrike, Jeroen, myself and JoAnn. We learned that Henrike is studying to be an attorney and Jeroen is studying to be a hospital administrator.



We had a great visit with them, albeit too short ...
It's a small world ... And with André and a little Scooter, the world became even smaller.
