a traffic road sign.
The man living there was celebrating his 50th anniversary.
It's quite common over here to have a doll in the garden when becoming 50.

Comments are welcome, thanks in advance.

Have a nice day, kind regards, Herman

Herman, you Netherlanders seem about as wacky as your neighbours to the south.

(The other day I noticed Harry Gruyaert's Made in Belgium -- which I'd never seen -- going for a very palatable price at an online auction. So I bid for it and to my surprise got it. The photos are ... um ... a mixed bag. But puzzling through Hugo Claus's poems in parallel French [at which I'm even poorer than I'd realized] and Flemish [which I don't understand at all] has a certain fascination.)

Herman, that is a great doll! When I saw this shot, I was both surprised and laughing at the same time! It is so interesting to not only hear about different people's cultural habits but see them too!

That doll's face is a bit weird, that's for sure...it appears that he has multiple personalities going there!:biggrin:

You know with your unusual (to me) animal road signs and these 50 year old dolls, you've got quite a collection going.:thumbup:

Thanks for replies.
To make it even funnier, watch this shot.
We usually celebrate our 50th birthday a bit weird.:smile:

Kind regards, Herman

Hi Enrique, thanks for your reply.
Every country has it's own traditions.
I really must start new threads. That keeps us going.

Have a nice day.
Kind regards, Herman
