My Rip Van Winkle tale

I have for you a tale in the Rip Van Winkle line, though this one is true, and rather than being about one man disappearing for 20 years, it’s about a local town losing its founding Dutch family for 300. I was reminded of it while stopping off in Amsterdam last week following our visits to the Russian baby home where we first met our son Patrick and tours of Moscow, St. Petersburg and Tyumen.
