I’ve spent yesterday evening with Marieke collecting money for the Anjeractie in Leiderdorp, as part of the collection done by Theater Toverlei. It’s a chore, every year, but as we get funded partly by the Anjerfonds we have to collect, too. And if you’re together at least you have someone to talk to.

From Marieke’s perspective, if you’re together at least there’s someone to take your place when you hear dogs bark when you ring the bell. It only happened twice (ringgggg / Bark! Bark! / Whaaaaa! ) but the fun was all mine :-). Apart from those dog incidents, nothing terribly exciting happened. People sometimes come back with stories of half-naked people answering their door, and hope springs eternal, but unfortunately that hasn’t happened to me this year, either.
