Sunday afternoon - the first day, with "Summertime" this year, was a real Summerteaser. Rosa and Felicia did hang around the Windows from the very morning.
No doubt here: We want to go out.
Out, in our winterhome means the balcony. Which is in a mess. Need cleaning and painting and rehabilitation. Rosa and Felicia could not care less.
Let us out. Mieeeew.
Well, we happens know them very well. We can not let them out on the balcony without watching them. Why? 'Cause it's easy to jump from one balcony to another. That means 45 tempting places to investigate. Thank you, we have experienced the challenge to have them come back to the right spot.
Out with one chair, close the door quickly. Out with a second chair, close the door even quicker. Out with a table. Puh, it was "hot" in the afternoon sun.
Then, open the door, rush back and sit down in the chair. Business as usual.
Rosa ran out and jumped into the "garden". Felicia took more precautions. Here they are on a short video. First time out since October 2006.

Photo Hunters March 24 - 2007
This a tribute to my second cousin in California. We had an unforgetable afternoon in Sacramento, and ended in their beautiful home in the evening, sitting chatting in this charming backyard. The next morning, he and his wife had left for work, before we wake up. And we felt empty.
We slept in his daughters room, which we met in Portland, OR, a couple of days before. The visit to the Japanese garden was blasting, since I had not seen theme for 11 years. When leaving, I felt empty.
Who else, but Rande, second cousin as well, and brother to Paul, was our SF Bay Area Guide! After leaving Paul, we did the the Wine Visting tour in Napa Valley. Two winery's we did. Here is # one, and here is # 2. ( #2 Special for our member of the cyber-cruise) When we left Rande, the very morning the new airport security regulations took place - he gave us the correct advices. No perfume lost. We miss all our family in California. And feel empty. Here in Oslo.
Join the Photo Hunters.
This weeks theme is Empty. Next week: Water.

Stop the BlogPress
This morning all cruise passengers were brutally woke up by the notorious Irish Church Pirate. After an unusual struggle in the Irish Sea, it's seems like the original captain Lifecruiser has regained control over the cruise and passengers, according to normally serious blog-sources.
Here are some of our reliable sources: Captain, Pirate, Passenger (From Waterloo), Viking
and from Barcelona
Rumours said the Pirates went Northbound. This has later been confirmed by this correspondant. Who can confirme the Pirates were driven out in the blue by some Polarbears. Late in the evening a group of Pirates were observed, heading towards Berlin. What bastards do not are aware of, is the secret alliance between the Polarbears and the famous Berliner Bears. This should mean everybody can safely join the cruise in Berlin and the wonderful Lakes around the German Capital.
Here's the proof of todays Polarbear Hero's. And that the shop's soon after the attack were filled with traditional Viking goods.
Secret Cruise Report
Renny and Rosa
What did really happen in Oslo during the Stay on Mrs Lifecruiser's Cybercruise. Did we go shopping? Did we visit the museums. Or visit cafes? Did Anna make Dinner? All the talk about champagne, wine, coffee and Calva...
Here is what really happend after the welcome video on RennyBA's blog:
Rosa invited Renny down to the Turkish Carpet. As it might be readers under 18 visiting, you only are invited to the foreplay. But, be relaxed. Every movement was closely inspected by Felicia - half hidden like a real detective, in the empty wine carton.

Cruise with drinks
We are on a cruise. And during the cruise we realized it's more than humans that need a drink. Skol - from the Oslo-team of the cyber-cruise (Join the A-Teamer Cyber Cruise). Our living co-members do like we care.

Skrik - Scream - Munch
Ok, here I am. Millions upon millions have asked my this question:
Dear Edvard, when abroad you painted Skrik: Where did you do that famous, seductive, sensual, sexual, ancious , mad crazy SHRIEK (skrik).
Learn even more about "Tigerstaden" - The "tigercity" as one Nobel Litterature Price Winner called Oslo. Stay tuned, and you'll be amazed.
A-Team Cybercruise 1Q-2007 - Oslo-Norway
Here we have the most astonishing collections of boats you can imagine. From the Viking ships or Longboats, via the Kon-Tiki Raft and the Rush Boat RA (known from Thor Heyerdahl's expedition in the Pacific) to the polar ships Fram and Gjoa (the latter was for many years in San Francisco before brought "home" to Oslo) to all kinds of fishing vessels and trade vessels. And several thousands of private leisure boats in Marinas around the peninsula.
As a country close to the Artic, it's only natural, we have had more than one to explore both The North and South Poles. I'll not rip up in the race for the South Pole. But instead focus on an expedition through the North West Passage. The sea route north of Canada. With the vessel named Gjoa. It was brougth back to Norway from San Francisco, after years of neglecting there.Meant nothing. But the expedition has given a proof of the Canadian - Norwegian realtionship with a remarkable, symbolic gift. Let the pictures tell. Read the text at the second picture below.This was the first leg on the Oslo sightseeing. Have some food and beverages before we continue. Or visit my co-host RennyBA.
And do not forget who's the Captain, Mrs Lifecruiser.

(Yes, Anna is on the photo).
Please take a minute to visit the UNESCO site-description to find more information.
This is the description in brief:
The Pont du Gard was built shortly before the Christian era to allow the aqueduct of Nîmes (which is almost 50 km long) to cross the Gard river. The Roman architects and hydraulic engineers who designed this bridge, which stands almost 50 m high and is on three levels – the longest measuring 275 m – created a technical as well as an artistic masterpiece.

Friday 9 mars 2007
We do that a couple of times each year. 250 km ( about 160 miles) - 3-4 hours including shopping and, and.. That's what it takes from where we live. Others have only minutes to go.
The Tour had a perfect start. I went to Anna's job to pick her up, after feeding the cats a little extra. That means I did drive from a our suburb south in Oslo into downtown - on a Friday early afternoon. I was there, but Anna?
No. TG for cellphones. I called.
- I'm waiting at the station, as agreed upon this morning, answered Anna upon my call
- oooops - I'm just outside your job... Coming as soon as the traffic allows me, said the driver (what do we call this kind of reply...)
Twenty minutes it took. At least, we saved 10 minutes all in all.
75 minutes drive in fog, and we where in shopping paradise (mostly prices and also some food varieties we like). No shopping malls. Only the winery and the shop next door. And then another one. No Customs. We even had glimpses of light (different lightscale colors) and blue sky on the return drive. Not much trafic. Cruisecontrol traffic with other words. But wet and salty road. Wiper on automatic needed. Heading home. Safely.
Hello this was the fun. Children go to bed. The rest of the story is very, very sad. Sleep well. I promise some sweet jokes next time. (I'm still alive - hugs from the old Viking)
Good night - sleeeep weeel - dream dream dream....
The rest is for folks with Drivers license only
Then, less than one minute by car from home: pang. punctation. The first one this century. I say no more: 75 minutes extra. No Formel 1 Pit Stop speed. Alumnium wheel rims and salted roads are definetly a very bad combination. Unless you know how to avoid the glueing effect between steel and alumnium created by salt - road salt.
Anna went home by her own (walking to be precisly - with one bottle of white wine to chill down) to feed Felicia and Rosa with Pollock.
As you, my dear reader, allready have observed, I'm home too. And the White Wine - Excellent.
That's it Folks; my Fun Friday this week:))
PS. The last cartoon is dedicated Mrs Lifecruiser.
If you ponder why, you can click here.
Read all, then you'll see the point. But I strongly disagree with the conclusion. You may wonder why. If, read my comment. If you still wonder.. ask:))
btw. Why do they both look like tourists?
Spring is in the Air
PS. Join the A-Team blogcruise. We will visit Oslo very soon. Hosted by RennyBA and me.
You can start sending questions to our e-mail adresses given on our profile pages.
