    Horsje Rosary

    You know, Willem, the beads on the rosary are really just to help you keep count of your prayers. So you could use something else instead.

    Karroten, for example. With every bite of karroten that you eat, you could say a prayer for your grandpa (you loff him).

    That is good news, Willem! Tell your modder (you loff her) to wish him well on his trip!

    I just composed a long message as I always do, offline. Then, I found no past option in the reply composition windows, neither the Quick Reply nor the regular Reply.

    I don't want to go through entering everything again, but wish to tell Willem to send my best to both his modder (he loffs her), Coreene, and his superfodder, Opa.

    I stumbled onto this topic very late in the game and am happy Opa is going to be able to make a trip to Holland to visit relatives and friends.

    Coreene, give him lots of understanding and support. Though he's treating this as no big deal, I'm sure he's worrying inside. But, it isn't macho to admit to it.
    Cheers, Maggi

    Willem, I am happy that your Opa is going to see his family and friends in Holland. He will have lots of fun. I am praying that when he gets back, Herr Doktor will be able to make him one hunnert percent verrie soon.
