A heavenly Valentine

Valentine, oh Valentine

In the lunchtime, we sit in the sun with 

green tea, this February 14, 2021. and..

we think of.... February 14, 1951. Kiss.


We, Iris and I were engaged in the milk

bar Tokki in The Hague only ..70 yrs ago.

She went to Canada. I did army draft duty.


Iris came back to Holland to see what was

left of me after 2 1/4 in the army. A good

2 year pauze. Then we flew to Canada.


On February 14, people all around smiled 

looking very happy. How did they know

that we were engaged that regular day?


They explained.  It is Valentine Day, you

know....?  No, we didn't.  St Valentine is

not celebrated in Holland. Yes, it's GREAT.


Have a bright, sunny Valentine Day !  Wim
