    2nd request: What is a Keekerfretter?
    Is it similar to a Ponteswona?

      I believe it is an old Dutch dialect moniker, keeke for kip or chicken, fretter = eater, lover of etc. or from frit = French fries.

      My Mom was born a Dutch and lives again in Maastricht. I will visit her in September w/ sidetrip to Spain, Marbella, Grenada, Seville, Cadiz and what not.

      Plaudit! Kiki

      • That is more like it, der Fritter.

        Fritter away your time or kill yourself with too many fritters. Donuts. English. Of course, all deep fried.

        That is why I called you Fritter.
