Old life and young life

These people are Pieter Ably and Henriette Jeanne Ably-Tritsch who have been married for 80 years! They are both 102 years old. I just watched a documentary about the couple and I was touched how sweet the man was for his wife. Their daughter explained that the husband met his wife in France in 1928 and brought her to the Netherlands. It took her a long time to get used to life in a different country and as he had brought her here he decided to be extra sweet to her.
Our new Australian secretary suddenly uttered a loud shriek in the afternoon and it turns out we have mice in the office. A full nest of babies. As the only man in the office today it was my task to catch them. Needless to say I failed miserably.

Hey, all you need is a cat. There must be a "rent-a-cat" place somewhere in the Netherlands.
