Tuberculosis and other diseases due to the afwull living conditions were common.

1929, Curaçao
1929, Curaçao
The world-wide economic downturn of the early 1930's resulted in severe unemployment and hardship throughout the Netherlands. My grandfather Kees Kloosterman, managed to get a contract with the Shell in Curaçao in the Dutch West Indies. He left around 1928 together with his friend Chris Minnebreuker on the ship the "Simon Bolivar" (KNSM - 1927 / 1939). This picture was taken in Curaçao, shining his shoes. On the back of the photo, he wrote: "In my hands a package with some cloths for Mina".

63 years Marriage
63 years Marriage
What a great couple they made, they have known each other practically their whole lives. They met when my father was 17 and my mother was 14 years old. They would take walks and occasionally go to the movies. They dated for 7 years, got engaged and married during WW II in 1942. They were married 63 years when my father passed away November 19, 2005. My mother survived him only 2 months and died February 3, 2006 and joined her beloved Adrie. The key to their staying together was their love for each other and because they remained friends all their lives. Besides love, friendship is I think one of the common elements of a successful long-term marriage. And remember, a happy marriage can take years off your face.

The original collection was bequeathed to the city of Rotterdam in 1847 by F.J.O. Boymans, a city councilman. In 1958 the collection of Daniel George van Beuningen was acquired, and the Boymans Museum was renamed the Boymans van Beuningen Museum.

Alcaidesa Golf, May 28e 2013
Alcaidesa Links opened in 1992 and is an experience that cannot be found anywhere else in Spain. Located West of San Roque, in an area rich with enthusiastic golfers, the course has recently undergone an extensive program of remodeling, fairways have been improved and widened. Alcaidesa Golf has breathtaking views across the straights of Gibraltar to Morocco and the Atlas Mountains beyond. I played there with my good friends Rene, Andries and Leen, May 28e 2013.

Photo of me (with long hair !!) in 1974, bivouac with the infantry. I was a military doctor from jan. 1974 till march 1975, with the 435 Infantry regiment "Van Heutz", in the Klooster Kazerne, Chasseésingel in Breda.

Army 1974, bivouac
That's me on the right, as a first lieutenant miltary doctor in 1974, having bivouac with the infantry. As you can see, long hair was permitted in those days! The infantry chow that we had to eat was certainly not gourmet food, but we had a lot of fun! On the left if I remember well, Frank Koenegracht. I think he specialised as a psychiatrist and in the back Jan van der Ham, who became a gynaecologist.
