Dear friends & joker collectors.

Welcome at my renewed website.

My name is Ive Theuwissen, age 22years old and I live in a small town in the north-eastern part of Belgium

called Maaseik. I work as a volunteer at the administration department of the city.

Due to a spinal cord tumor, I got paralised in the year 2001 at the age of 14 years. While staying in the

rehabilitation center, I had to find out a way to train my bad handfunction. While playing cards I got the bright

idea to start to collect jokers. My collection gained very fast due to the fact that all my fellow mates in the

center, my family, friends and even strangers offered me jokers. I also learned to know some collectors which

helped me on the way. Since that day somewhere in the year 2002, I had some tough training moments and

hours, because by now my collection reaches the magic number of 5000 jokers. But this is no end stage,

allthough it gets harder to find new jokers. I welcome my colleage collectors to look at my duplicates & maybe

you find some new jokers for your collection. Occasional visiters may contact me if they have jokers wich they

do not need or use. I'm willing to pay the shipment costs.
