Norway’s National Day 2015

18 May 2015 – Celebrating 17May For 47 Years


Sat: appreciations to Anna & Jim+their 4 boys for an early 17 May gathering at heir place. They must have the biggest Norwegian flag I have ever seen! Hotdogs and hamburgers were perfect food before all the yummy home-made Norwegian cakes – blotkaker, krumkaker, mandelkake.


Kids were having a blast in their backyard, lost count of children and the lovely SC roses as the day and the wine went down 🙂

Sun: hipp hipp hurra for 17 mai – gratulerer med dagen till alle nordmenn i Norge og verden rundt. To May, Bjørn and Olai – Happy 17th May and hugs from us here in CAE/SC.

Family is at church and lunch and I am having some quiet time reading and chilling before another the Bennetts are scheduled to grill and swim in the lake later this afternoon.



John as I have mentioned has a quiet disposition and was sitting with me away from the crowd. The hammock has been taken down as Zuno has a tendency to chew on it! Cindy (Jeff’s mom) is also here for a few days to look for houses with the intention to buy!!


Mon: Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary to Lawrence & Mabel. Apologies that I could not make it to celebrate the occasion.

There are two lasting bequests we can give our children. One is roots. The other is wings – Hodding Carter, Jr.
