Today is the KLM Royal Dutch Airline's 91st anniversary as they started on October 7, 1919.
Just by coincidence did I take today a photo of this special edition house that friend Ellie carried in her luggage for me. She arrived on September 2nd with KLM Dutch house # 90 and its special book. I'd purchased that on line, as we no longer are in the air as Royal Wing members... We've done our share!
Not all Delftware houses from KLM were filled with Dutch gin...
They do line the windows in our veranda; all 90 of them since Ellie got me the latest.
That is, today house # 91 was added to the collection and I will certainly add that one too.
At the last window there still is some space left...
Beautiful gift box with House No. 90 and the special book.
Hardcover with cloth and with a special ribbon you can lift the book out of its box; very clever design!

For the rest I joined him, as Pieter had requested that he could take his wife along on any trip longer than 8 hours. Thereby declining his right to travel first class on flights longer than 8 hours.
Thus I got to visit my parents quite often in those five years, because of this smart clause in his contract. For Campbell it even saved them money as economy class was far cheaper, even for the two of us.

That was the 91th birthday of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and we owe them a lot of gratitude!
