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 🙂

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.
