A Beautiful Country...

I'm 100% Norwegian. 
Three generations removed and all continuous inbreeding 
of Norwegian of Minnesota and Iowa, so I traveled to Norway before...

Norway is a small country, about half the size of Sweden, but it has a very
good film climate because they have municipal cinemas, so even in the smallest
towns you have a cinema that shows art house films from all over the world.

Honestly, I was looking for something interesting online on Norway and I found
the above.  Although I don't "get" it I guess it pretty much sums up Norway.
One thing though, Norway has beautiful mountains as you can see below,

and beautiful Fjords.  You know they say that life ain't always beautiful, but it's a
 beautiful ride.  Like Noway, it's a beautiful country.  One I wish to explore more one day

Tourists flock to do the Norwegian Fjord Cruise. As their advertising goes, 
there are few destinations in the world that inspire and captivate as much as Norway. 
This land of soaring peaks, crashing waterfalls and gigantic glaciers 
is best viewed up close – from a Celebrity Cruises® ship. 
Yep..free advertising, but one worth it I think!

Yesterday was one of those days that will forever be a special memory.  
Everyone was gathered at Victoria and Michael's.  As usual they out did themselves. 
 From the moment we stepped into the home it was as I have said before,
a feast to the eyes.  Then came the food and boy was it good.

Arvid and I ate so much we did not have room for dessert.  Sad because she does
 an outstanding presentation for that as well.  It was a good time.  Relaxed.  Laughter 
and just a lot of warmth in the room.  Some of my favorite times in Norway is 
spent at Villa VM, (Victoria & Michael's)  I am forever grateful to them.

We come back to our place and it was a little wet and cold, but did not stop Arvid from
 going out for a while and having some "guy" time with friends from long time ago. 
Guy time went on for several hours.  Guess it was good to meet old friends.
 I was happy to stay in and call my mom and sisters.  Good for both of us.

Today we go to Michelle and Emil's.  Looking froward very much to that.
Little Michelle is an outstanding cook, mother and woman.  Love them all to pieces.

Well friends, greetings from Norway.
May you live in interesting times.

Change is like that: you are no longer where you were; 
you are not yet where you will get; you are nowhere exactly...
