    This is a great, great forum. The oscillation between “boy’s naivete” and “professionalism” that I sometimes detect is pure fun !
    Reading the comments convinced me I’ m not alone (or should I say I’ m not sick?)

  • As I say to the wife every anniversary, it seems like a lot longer!

    Happy Birthday.

    Congratulations Robert Jan. As a matter of fact I discovered your great blog quite recently. It shows that things can be of great fun and professional at the same time. A few years ago I contacted you after I found out you own the one thing I am still looking for: your (first) Speedy Pro from 1967 which is my year of birth. Should you ever consider selling it afterall do not hesitate to contact me first 😉
    Keep up the good work together with Gerard.
