Sorry - I'm having a terrible time with Dutch.

Does it COUNT if I own a copy of "Moving Waves" by the legendary Dutch rock band Focus?? It was released in 1972.

I love the way you captured the zenith of
this famous mountain. It is magnifique!!!

Legendary rock band Focus? It's way before my time, I've never heard of them..What's the problem, are the lyrics in Dutch?

Thanks for the comment on the picture :) It's a great summit to climb.

Cheers, Jurgen

No problem. I'm SURE there were many other
Dutch bands since then, but I was in
Amsterdam in 1976. That's when Focus
was at their ZENITH or "highest point."

In fact, when I was peddling my bicycle across the countryside amongst the backdrop
of Windmills & Wooden Shoes, I was dreaming
of a snow-capped mountain in the Alps.

I had to do a lot of dreaming when I was in
Amsterdam. Those days are gone now.

All I have left (of those days) is a
"Focus" album and a bottle of Rum. After
that, we got stuck in New York City for
awhile, but that's another story from a Book
of Dreams.

Take care of yourself, my friend!! :)
