A Wedding In 1965

20 May 2021: Between-Handsome-Young-Men

Mon: today is the National Day & a public holiday in Norway. Happy 17May to those celebrating Norway’s Bday when the NorwegianConstitution was signed in Eidsvoll/Norway on 17May1814. Today’s lunch&dinner – salmon&salmon+shrimps&meatballs from IKEA.

For us in SIN, a new week ahead with new measures under tighter restrictions to observe. Social gatherings capped at 2ppl, no dining in, so only take-aways from now! With infographic like the above, will definitely stay mainly within my 4-walls where indoors are concerned except for groceries&medical app.
This news is worrying – Covid-19 is airborne, scientists say. Now, the authorities think so, too.
Yes, and how many deaths will it take ’til he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind

Tue: Happy 56thWedding-Anniversary to Lawrence&Mabel, of course I remember the day, the only time I was a bridesmaid. The occasion was at the ROM, do not even remember if there was a lunch-reception or dinner (do not have any lunch or dinner pix on my side).
1956-Lawrence left SIN for his studies&work in Ireland&UK and did not return until 1964. In those days it was not that easy to travel around and I did not see him for 8yrs. Mother’s 1stEU trip was in 1963 when she could be with the other 4siblings. Her next trip was 1964, when father flew her to Guy’s Hospital/London and her final trip was back to SIN where her lung cancer had spread to her brains and she passed away in Jun1965, less than a month after their wedding.
Jul1965, I was sent off to boarding school in Dublin/Ireland – a very traumatic&sad stage in my life-journey.

Wed: sorting out old pix and found this from 2016/Norway, again between 2handsome young men, hahaha! Happy Birthday Christian in Norway but do wonder where Magnus is nowadays? Another pix from 2014 with Chris&Christian – I think I will title a new folder Between-Handsome-Young-Men – lol, need some humour considering the  circumstances nowadays!!

Clutter is not just physical stuff. It’s old ideas, toxic relationships and bad habits. Clutter is anything that does not support your better self – Eleanor Brownn

It is not enough with India’s continuing to grapple with a major spike of COVID-19cases+an outbreak of BlackFungus, and now with severe CycloneTauktae slamming into Gujarat/India??? Prayers&thoughts are out to all affected. Pix downloaded

On top of the pandemic+natural disasters, now also war between Israel&Hamas?? What is happening in this world?

Thu: sharing some old pix downloaded from my previous blog postings, the ones where KellerPianoCo was once in OrchardRd bringing back nostalgic childhood memories of walking into that shop on the old wooden squeaky floor.

Might still have some music scores bought from there if I have the energy to go thru’ all of them! Today, all that is left from that shop is a green corner area with a grey electrical or gas box and the drain is still there.B/Wpix downloaded.
