Ten years ago,

I came into this world.

I opened my eyes and the first thing

I saw were my Mum and Dad.

What about 'Tony'?


Tony. Yes.

Tony Wagemans.

I was born in the house

near the big cranes.

That was just as well.

I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

My father is Gilles Wagemans...

the best operator of the country.

The crane is his third arm.

He can do anything with it.

When your father is a crane operator,

you really aren't afraid of heights.

My Dad didn't know my Mum yet

until they met at work.

It was love at first sight.

Hey. Could you take it easy?

Let me guess. Sissy?

My mother, my father and me.

We are very much alike.

For example:
I have my mother's eyes

and my father's cranes.

I was able to hoist

before I could walk.

That's because of my crane blood.

Every year on my birthday

my Mum bakes a cake...

and my Dad teaches me

a new crane to operate.

When I became four,

I rode a caterpillar.

That's when my Dad became

leader of the operators' union.

When I turned seven,

I was allowed on the forklift.

And at age eight, on the scissor lift.

That was right before my Dad

took over Kouwenaar cranes.

He became the boss

of Wagemans & Co.

My Dad bought 28 tower cranes,

and 37 cherry pickers.

At the age of nine

I was allowed on the grabber.

Then I was able to do everything

a good operator should be able to do.

Or nearly everything.

- And that one?

- No, not that one.

- Not the Beast.

- The Beast is very dangerous.

Extreme sports.

That crane demands everything:

Concentration, speed, muscles.

- When I'm ten?

- No way.

That boy of ours has crane blood.

He can't be stopped.

When you're ten.

I was lucky to have these parents

and they were lucky to have me.

But then I was still nine, and we were

still together. Just the three of us.

I was on eight roller coasters

this weekend.

That's quite something.

Tony, four legs please.

Thank you. Great.

- What did you do this weekend?

- My Dad and I had a job to do.

A car had driven into the canal.

A bit faster.

Fortunately no one got injured.

Of course the car was a total wreck.

We only talk about things

that really happened.

- But it's true.

- Write a paper and hand it in later.

- New hands?

- My cat ate his own tail.

How did that happen?

- A bit more.

- Sure, boss.

Stop it. Yes.

- Keep it straight.

- Stop.

Come on.

- How's it going?

- Fine. Lower it. Good.

And... stop.

Yes. Fine.

Go ahead. A bit faster.

- What?

- A bit faster.

We're waiting for the Queen.

She's in the car. There she comes.

Long live the Queen.

Your majesty,

I'm Gilles Wagemans.

We're responsible

for this whole operation.

The unveiling will happen here

in a few moments.

- So I have to push this button?

- Keep your paws to yourself.

- Paws?

- Pinchers.

Listen, I'm not here to pinch this thing.

I just want to push that button.

- For the unveiling.

- You can do that at the top.

It's possible to do it from there.

- Really?

- All the way at the top?

- Certainly.

- I hardly dare to ask, but...

- It's my pleasure, Your Majesty.

- Come with me.

- How exciting.

Did you see that?

That was me.

Dad and the Queen.

Did Dad say what time he'd be home?

She'd never even heard of pinchers.

Gilles Wagemans of Wagemans Cranes

wishes you nice dreams.

I have to go.


Gilles, I miss you.

- I can't disappoint the guys in the band.

- Of course you can't.

Thank you.

- Three beers, please.

- Here's the next song.

Hi, Sis.

Calm down.

Calm down, honey.

He's here.

He's here with me and he's just fine.

I'll put him on.
