Lieve ouders,



Een klein raadsel:


Februari 2007


- Dan zijn jullie samen 120 jaar oud

  en 35 jaar getrouwd


Waar gaan we naar toe 3-5 februari 2007?


Het is er niet hoog en niet laag,

de taal is divers

Rust, ruimte en natuur

samen zijn met dierbaren,

Wie zouden deze dierbaren kunnen zijn?


Wij kijken er naar uit!
