photoblog image ...Carnaval 2017 in Gorinchem....

...Carnaval 2017 in Gorinchem....

'Grab them by the flower'....

'Make Bliekenstad great again'.....

 

This was in the Carnaval parade last Saturday in 'Bliekenstad'... a.k.a Gorinchem.

'Bliek' is the name of a kind of fish.

 

I apologize for the poor quality of these pictures

I like the sentiments, Astrid!
Picturit: It was a nice parade and there was lots to see again.
Astrid.
Crazy times there! Fun montage...
Whatever could they be referring to?! smile
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth. This is every year a welcome parade, small but so much fun.
I wonder who they are referring to... wink

It is a wonderful and fun montage, Astrid.
Picturit: Thank you, Ray. For some reason the resolution became poor.
Astrid.
The thing that most "grabbed" me, Astrid, was how what's happening in America right now with that Narcissist is on the minds and in the actions of so many here in Europe! It was a fun parade to watch and you did a great job putting this together. I especially like the confetti background...and your signature, of course! smile
Picturit: I love it the way these things can be used and just by changing one word, 'every' body knows what it means... and I have to say, Carnival is the perfect occasion the say things with a 'wink of the eye'....
Thank you, Ginnie.

No apologising - the parade is very funny - and Trump is mentioned here like at the parades in our country - I'll look at our parade today, nearby my apartment, I can hear the music. What does mean "Ik haam af"?
Picturit: 'Ik haak af'... 'haken' is crochet. However 'afhaken'... is kind of 'I resign from being in this group. It has a double meaning.

I love the hats especially and the people on the walkers. Photos from your mobile phone maybe?
Picturit: No from a real camera, however when I put them in a program to make these collages, the resolution is brought down, for some reason?? My phone is only doing what it is supposed to do, phone people and receive phone calls, like in the 1800's... grin...
Astrid.
Even George W wasn't ridiculed as much as the current POTUS
Picturit: I totally agree, but I already ignored the 'double u' after him saying that the Netherlands were a province of Germany....
This one is even more stupid.... is that possible, YES it is.
Astrid.
What a colourful parade! That statement by Trump made me sick!
Picturit: Yes indeed, for a small city like Gorinchem they do a great job. Can I say that all statements from the POTUS makes me sick???
Astrid.
A fine collage Astrid, strange that it only gave you a low resolution image though. I really can't see this current POTUS lasting four years, surely something will turn up to force him to resign or be sacked.
Picturit: Thank you, Brian. The program that I use is already old and I hardly use it. This POTUS will not last 4 years, he will make a big mistake somewhere on the way and people will say, 'okay that's it.. out'....
Maybe he walks out for he is so tired of all the negative things he hears about himself.
Astrid.
No doubt everyone was having a great time!
Picturit: They had, it was a fun parade and the weather was nice too... at least it was dry.
Astrid.
nice collage...
Picturit: Thank you, Larry.

It reminds me of the unexpected pleasure of experiencing the Carnival in Mechelen, a couple of years ago.
Picturit: I think Mechelen had a much bigger parade the 'more south' you get the better the parades are. Always fun to join in with some traditions unexpectedly.
Astrid.
ah yes, the carnival. looks like a fun time, Astrid. the version in Venlo too was enjoyable.

I can't add anything to both of your comments! It's amazing how these phrases are now used around the world!
