Merry Christmas 2011

Dear friends around our tiny Planet,
once again we have been travelling and met family and friends during the year that soon will be history.
Julehilsen på mange sprog 
On January 29 we lit the Candle on Rubens Grave.
Papa slept over with his best friend after that event.
On my 66th Birthday in April, we had an unforgetable party.
All 8 beds used.
We have met our daughter and her husband and his family in Germany.
We have met our Son Mats, his wife , her sister and their Mother in Michigan
We have met our family in California
This year we have met the nature as we can't control:
Earthquakes, Sunamis, Drought and Floods that millions still suffer from. Let us not forget those who suffers more than we do.

And here in Norway an insane person killed 77 persons on July 22.
At that date we were in the Chigaco area, and could not believe what we watched live on TV.
We thanks all the Americans we met who gave us their thoughts during our stay in US during these difficult time.


A special thanks to our blog friends in North America:
Lisa, Suzann, Comedy+, Expat Traveller, Steven and Irene

and Claudie and Pierre in Southern France.

In April we had the pleasure of meeting Ginnie and Astrid here in Oslo.
During the year, we had several phone calls with Mrs Lifecruiser. Hope to meet her and Mr Lifecruiser during 2012.

You are all very important in our life.
And we even met a Norwegian Blog friend.
That was a blast.


Of course I will not forget to mention my most important blog-mentor:
RennyBA.  I really hope he will recover and be back as usual in the blogosphere.


We have many more to thank for given us hope for the future.

Both Family and Friends. Like Maribeth, Naomi (we are on the Phone),
and Petunia who has been in charge for the Nordic version of Sky Watch, this week for #64.
I have a special blog for “Himmelsk” – photos you can see… without understanding Norwegian.

Have I forgotten some of you? Yes, I have.
Facebook Friends, but this is my blog...
It’s past Midnight here and I must post before the Pillow and Cats etc ….. 

Hope to meet you all during 2012.
In one way or another – at least we have social medias:-)

Thank you for your good wishes. We are going to a wedding in Chicago in late July. We are thinking about going a week early and renting a car to travel to south Michigan. Maybe we can meet you then ? I hope that 2012 will bring you much joy, happiness and fun travel.

It was lovely to talk to you on New Years Eve, my dear Tor....
I wanted you to know I had to put my darling Sweetie to sleep on Monday, January 2nd. I really hoped and thought he would make it---but, our worst fears happened and the BEST thing for him was to let him be out of pain and cross The Rainbow Bridge....I am Heartbroken. 2012 is not starting out too well for me.

I hope 2012 will be a WONDERFUL Healthy Year for you and Anna and for ALL those you hold dear.
