Background: In the little Dutch village of Valthe (North-East of Holland) Mr. and Mrs Oosting have just celebrated the 70th anniversary of our wedding. That's quite an achievement, particularly as, even on their wedding day in 1888, Mrs Oosting was 24 and her husband, 26.
These two remarkable old people have lived and worked together through good times and bad without a break - and it has not been always an easy life for them. Mr. Oosting was originally a peat-digger and later, by hard work, acquired a little farmhouse of his own. They have lived and worked on their little farm for the past 51 years.
On this happy day they can look back on their lives together with pride. and satisfaction. And they know the great affection of ----six 'children', 14 grand-children and 21 great-grandchildren.
