    I was twenty and just finished nursingschool and started working in a

    psychiatric postcare facility in the city where i lived. I remeber i loved the

    fact i didn't have to wear a white uniform anymore.

    I remember listening to jazzrock with my mates and visiting heaps of concerts.

    The conservatives won the elections in the UK and Margaret Thatcher

    became prime-minister.

    My fav drink back then was Pernod, with water and ice.

    The shah flee from Iran and Iran became an Islamic state.

    ....took over.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    That year i went on holiday to Montmedy, an old city in the north of France,



    where we worked on the restoration of the Citadelle (Citywall) in exchange

    for food and shelter. We slept and lived in the Pigeoniere, a really big pigeon-

    house.

    Celebrating the 14 of July with the locals was one of the highlights.

    The house where i rented an apartment burned down in september,

    after the owner of the surfstore under the apartments had set fire to his

    store.

    I lost everything exept for some photo's of my youth.......

    (though the insurance pay out was really nice.... )

    Happily my two cats were outside when it happened.

    And the short fling i had with the female police officer who helped us out

    after the fire was really nice!!!

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------


    In november In Greensboro, North Carolina, five members of the Communist

    Workers Party are shot to death and seven are wounded by a group of

    Klansmen and neo-Nazis during a "Death to the Klan" rally.

    My fav TV-shows of that year were a.o. Soap, All in the family, Fawlty

    Towers, , Van Kooten

    en De Bie/Simplistisch Verbond, Taxi, The Muppet Show, Mash,


    Benny Hill , Derrick, etc.......

    My club Ajax did the double(championship and national cup) that year.

    And with the team i played in we became champion of the 4th class KNVB,

    wich was never matched after that year.

    (The club's owner payed us 50 guilders after a win, wich wasn't allowed,

    as we were amateurs.....In 91 the club was put back 4 divisions after they

    found out......)
