   It’s Friday evening, and Mom is sitting on the floor charging the PC at a school,and hoping everything will work better this time.
We have now been in Mom’s and Lotta’s puppy town (Skellefteå ) two days, and since there’s a big festival with lots of very loud Rock n roll music, there haven’t been much time to relax.
Last night the music didn’t stop until 2 AM and we’re parked on the river just across from the festivities.
Tonight they are talking about moving and sleep by the church.
It’s a beautiful location and we hate to leave it but....................another 2 night with very little sleep, and I have a feeling Mom could get dangerous.
 
   
I’m getting ahead of the story.................on the drive up North Mom started to hallucinate about the cinnamon buns she was going to eat at the bear. We got there, and it was closed ? Mom has ALWAYS stopped at the Bear, so she was quite disappointed
 
      
I really would like one of these for myself..................it sure would make Buddy, Penny, Bodie, Pepper, Scooter. and lots of my other pals at home real jealous..........
 
 
 
We passed a really high bridge that reminded MOm of some bridges in New York. It was a foggy day so the normally gorgeous views was spoiled.............
 
       
 
 
 
Yesterday we did a little sight seeing at the old school. I was listening very closley to the “remember when stories” but still nothing juicy enough worth repeating, but I could tell both Mom and Lotta really enjoyed this visit at the school grounds. We were inside too, but someone told us no dogs allowed ...........and the explanation was allergic kids............BS I think
 
 
 
In the evening an old friend of mine stopped by, THAT was awesome I thought, but after the visit he took Mom and everybody with him and left me home alone.
 
 
 
I made a friend in the morning, but he also left later...................
 
 
 
This is the church my Mom got confirmed, and priest gave har some vine and a cookie ...............pretty church.......................................
 
 
 
It's time to move on I think, so I'll write more later.
 
wet kisses to all
Buttons

Another gorgeous day in the North, sun rise at 2 am and down at 11.30 pm, which means the day is almost 23 hours long, and makes it harder to go to sleep, not for me of course, but a little for Mom
We are now visiting with a friend of Lotta’s and last night we walked the grounds of an old mental hospital,which is now schools and a bunch of other stuff. There was a really strange art exhibit, that I didn’t think all that much about, but it was a great walk in the woods.
 
       
 
WOW, this is the biggest poop I've ever seen, I sure would like to see the size of the dude that dropped this one.............not to talk about the size of poop bag you'll need to pick it up.
 
 
 
At home we have a dryer, we don't hang the close in the trees to dry ???
 
 
 
And the bathtubs should go to the dump if you don't need them anymore ...........right ?
 
 
 
 
Here you can put your butt on the back of an eye ............
 
   
 
These tree huggers was pretty cool, at least itäs not that difficult to understand the artist.
 
     
 
A naked man on the roof ?
 
 
 
A stiff kid looking into the basement window
 
   
 
This little mirror house ws pretty cool to run in and out of............
 
     
 
here's a guy waiting for the bus, which I assume is late because he looked very unhappy
 
 
 
A dude made of letters ....................
 
   
 
Like I said, my interest of the art wasn't all that big, as a matter of fact, here is what I thought it was good for....................and Mom didn't notice, or I would have been punished................maybe  
 
 
 
after this we went into town, and walked and walked, defintley not as exciting as the woods...........
Mom didn't recognize much from her puppy years, so much has changed, but the old train station was the same.
 
 
 
This is Moms idea of art _???................guess she got inspired ????
 
 
 
Finally we gort to sit for a minute and feel like saints. ....................I didn't need a gloria, to let everyone know I'm a saint.................that's just obvious
 
   
 
This town is fampous for all it's birch trees, and they're everywhere  planted in straight rows like soilders
 
 
 
As always Mom can't refuse to point heer camera and shoot all gorgeous flowers she sees
 
   
 
Later today we're supposed to reach the final destination of Mom's and Lotta's puppy town.
I'm looking forward to stay at the same place for awhile, and reconnect with some friends that visited me at MY house.
 
Have a nice day all
and wet kisses

Day 3 of this adventure and we are getting closer to the destination of Mom and Lottas puppy town.
Both of them have traveled this route thousands times, and they keep saying this and that changed. New places popped up ? New roads they never seen and so on...............personally I think they’re having memory losses, but I’m a polite dog and stay in the back of Adrienne pretending I hear nothing.............. napping.
 
 
This is the first mosquito buying the farm
 
 
There’s a lot of wild flowers growing by the road, and I listen to a lot of ooohing and aahing from the front seat.
 
   
This is the beginning of a new bridge in Sundsvall, and it’s going to be huge
 
 
 
We stopped at the big Y which is the letter of the province we are in now. We’re “wild camping” tonight, so I sure hope the police don’t show up.................that would be so embarrassing
 
 
 
 
This is the old bridge on old E4 both my people used to travel...........and we walked a bit on the old road.
 
    
Like I mentioned before, Mom never grow up, but why the dickens does she need to drag me into her childish games 
 
     
 
I met some human puppies to play with and I showed them how to make a rasberry
 
 
 
 
Finally, once again Moms personal chef made an delicious supper...........
 
 
 
Batteries in the computer is almost gone, so the last picture is of a doghouse on the grounds, but noway, nohow am I sleeping there.
 
 
 
wet kisses to you all
Good night

Another gorgeous day, woke up to a blue sky with small white cotton clouds. Lotta is considering another dip in the ocean. Mom says it’s way to cold and will not under any circumstances consider such an exercise.
I spent the morning reading Lottas book called “a certain justice”and I thought it was going to about why we don’t have the same rights as humans .............not so at all
 
 
 
After breakfast we headed North,and we’re driving through century old ironworks country. We stopped at one of the biggest called Forsmark, were we explored the grounds of many old buildings. Everything was kept so pristine it was hard to imagine it was as old as it was.
 
          
This was the barons house, Af Ugglas, and I don’t think we were supposed to park here, but Mom pretends she’s a tourist and don’t understand anything. (Actually, she was pretending we lived here, she can be so childish) ..................Well, there was nobody at home anyway
 
 
 
 
the grounds was so gorgeous we almost wished it was evening and time to sleep, we could have stayed,and allowed Neptune to watch over us, but we continued north on small roads in a slow pace.
 
             
gorgeous well preserevd millstone
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
we finally crossed the river that divides North from the South.It’s called Dalälven, and lucky for you guys you weren't here having  to cover your ears to protect them from bursting. There was a roar of nostalgic acknowledgement from my people. Guess it was like a homecoming for them ................ 
 
 
    
Lotta has become Moms personal chef and last night they had bbq chorizos almond potatoes, and a Lotta invented a sauce with mustard and a bunch of other stuff. All this and a salad hit the spot, and than a very early bedtime.........
 
  
Lotta is waiting for Mom for a morning swim so I’m outta here to watch.
wet kisses.

Today we are at a place called Hargshamn campsite, and it’s definitely NOT the place I heard Mom talking about yesterday ? Truth is that there was some miscalculation in that map thing Mom has on the dash.
If it’s the fault of the lady talking in Garmin or Moms programming I'll never know, but as it turned out we are very happy with the place we found. It’s a small place on the Baltic sea, and extremely friendly people.
Best of all, it was quite inexpensive.
 
    
OH, I almost forgot, on the way here we stopped at a place I’ve been to before when Dad came along. Well, I was left in the car than, and in Adrienne this time. ...........Lotta treated to this absolutely delicious salmon burgers..............sure hit the spot Mom said.............What did I get ?? nothing !!!..........I’m going to make sure she’ll remember to make up for it.............
     Traditionally Swedes eat potatoes, herring with sour cream and scallions on midsummer, and that’s what was served. Lotta had made a cheese tart the night before, and dessert was strawberries with whipped cream.     There’s also a tradition to drink snaps, and that’s not Moms favorite, but Lotta insisted not to brake tradition, so Mom complied as Lotta is singing the songs that goes with it.
 
        after supper we went for a walk, it was nice even though the sun didn’t show. So many beautiful wildflowers manage to sprout in the crevices of the cliffs
 
       
Back to Adrienne it was time for dessert, and here comes the payback from lunch ...............Lotta is serving whipped cream ...................I ate right from her hand...............yumm
 
     
finally it was time for bed, and this was Lottas first night with us. I do think she slept well. .....
In the morning she went for a swim as Mom looked on with horror, cold ...................brrrrrrrr
 
   
 
Midsummer is over, and we're supposed to continue our trip north, but unfortunately we're having trouble with pulling in the roof on Adrienne, so we can't continue until we get thaat fixed.
 
 
 
Until next time
 
wet kisses
