This morning Mom spent several hours cleaning Adrienne. The entire inside was covered in yellow pollen, and for you that know Mom that drove her insane. It doesn;t matter one way or another to me, but when she comes with that big loud machine that sucks all the dust................That's what I want no part of.

It looks good inside now, and Mom is happy.


Last night we went for a bikeride into town, and there was a rock and roll band playing really loud. I HATED it, and lucky for me, Mom wasn't crazy about it either. We walked away and looked at the boats .....


    

 
Västervik is a beautiful little town, and for what I gather it seems like we’re going to stay here for a while.
The church in the middle of town high up on a hill is really pretty.
 
 
My old lead broke, so I got a new one, it looks good, and was very inexpensive. Unfortunatley it doesn’t wrk that good..............you know the old saying “you get what you pay for “ .............it’s so true...........so I’m too assume I’ll get another one real soon..............as far as I'm concerned I don't need on at all .............
 
 
 
here's the big cats that live here, Morre and Saba. Morre is the orange one. He's bigger than me, but still scared and runs as soon as he sees me. Saba is the Mom to the 4 kittens I met. She had 6 from the beginning, two of them moved to a new home today, so now they are 2.  They seemed less scared of me today, so maybe there's a possiblility of a friendship. 
 
 
 
Moms friend Lotta is an awesome cook, and we just got called in for supper, and I don't want to miss one nano~second of that, so I'll end todays story now, and hopefully we'll talk later.
 
   
Sphagetti carbonara with special cheese from Västerbotten .......yuummmmm.........(that was yesterday, can't wait to see what's on th plate today )
nose kisses

         I really need to have a serious talk with Mom so she’ll get back on schedule..........it’s hard to remember all the stuff that happens when I have to wait several days....................and NO it has nothing to do with age....
    We finally arrived at Lottas house on Thursday morning, and this time I had to wait in Adrienne ............(.last visit I chased the cat up the window where he was hanging on for dear life under the curtain, silly cat, he’s bigger than me, and I had no intention to hurt him )
This time, beside big Morry and Saba,like I already told you, there was 4 kittens..................which I really wanted to say hello to, but they hissed and ran too...............what’s up with that ? I like THEM, why don’t they like me ?
Sleeping kittens are the cutest ting,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
 
               
 
There was some kind of food festival in Västervik, and that we really had to visit,so we walked through town and up the hill to the park .  First thing at the entrance what do I see ? meters and meters of strawberry cake !! whipped cream in this heat ? I didn’t get much, but Mom and Lotta helped themselves to a chunk each
 
   
 
There was all kinds of delicacies but what Mom and Lotta was most interested in was the abundance of bread and cheese. They bought several bags.
Fried herring sandwiches was their lunch.............not bad at all.
 
     
 
I wasn't all that happy about htis event, and tried real hard to flirt this lady into giving me a ride, since she had the same wheels as Penny's Mom Jenny at home.............
it didn't work, she wasn't going our way.......
 
 
This place was also a graveyard for old boats, Mom said it was part of the museum, ( something I know nothing about, since I’m not allowed inside one ?) Typical flower in Swedish gardens bleeding heart made Mom sigh..............ok ok  Mom, it’s just a FLOWER....
 
    
When we were done at this place, we went home to put all the cheese in the fridge, and since I showed unhappiness at the park, I got to stay home and take a nap in Adrienne. ( I was fine, just needed to poop)
Mom and Lotta went to a different park to celebrate June 6th. .............it was the usual waive the flag, sing the anthem, and listen to speeches. Best part was the little twirling girls...........
 
         
 
Following day,( like yesterday), Lotta went to her job, and Mom started her planned work in the garden. We really wanted to move Adrienne off the street, so she made room in a parking space that was overgrown.
Mom is getting good at this piloting stuff..............there’s very little room on each side, and we have to squeeze passed the fence. It’s ok, it’s so much better now even though the rear sticks out a tad on the sidewalk.
 
   
 
 I now have a perfect look out spot on the front door of Lottass house from the passanger seat
 
 
 
Lotta made pizza and a rhubarb pie to die for ............
 
   
 
we ate outside and as usual Mom had milk to the pizza, which Lotta thought was real funny.  I'm used to it so it didn't surprise me.
 
 
 
I had to sit in the stroller so I couldn't   1. eat cat poo 2. roll in grass covered in cat pee 3. chase kittens
why oh why , doesn't Mom understand the little things that are so much fun in life ..............
cocky littel sucker comes up to me now when I can't get to her.....
 
 
 
After a eating lots of delicious pizza, we just sat and relaxed all pooped out. An evening walk around the neighborhood and than we said good night real early.......
 
 
 
At this tiime it's Saturday morning, and I''m in for my second nap as Mom is updating my blog........we will go for my morning poop walk, and than we'll see what Lotta Ove, and the kittens are up to
 
Have a great day all...........

After leaving Sigges town, we drove to a place at the East coast called Oxelösund, from pictures it looked real cozy, and Mom had found a place on internet to park Adrienne that looked nice. When we got there it was dirty and windy, and the view not exactly what we were looking for. We also tried to figure out what that statue was supposed to be ?


    





Mom made supper, we ate and than moved on to a place closer to town and a harbor for small boats, (and billions of seagulls) She spotted a seal, quickly out with the camera before he dives.............he didn’t move ? as it turns out he never moves. It was a statue.....hahaha


     



Mom still insists on getting up waaaay to early in the morning, usually around 6 AM............I refuse to get up and stay in bed.

 

 this past Wednesday we both got up in a hurry at 4.30 AM............there was a seagull invasion............you should have heard the noise they made, we sat quiet and looked out the window, no point talking,we couldn’t hear each other anyway. Mom was so stunned she didn’t even pick up the camera...................it didn’t last long so I went back to bed, but Mom stayed up and made coffee..............why I said ? nobody else is up...............well there was a Brittish guy in a sailboat.....


     


This town was nothing like we thought,  we walked around the harbour. We spotted pink bicycles that was for rent, but found out it was only for boaters...........how silly............guess Moms money aren't good enough ?


   


Maybe it's too early in the season ? the flowers in the welcome sign at the town entrance hasn't been planted ? and nothing in the boat pots ?  Maybe town is short of money for not renting bicycles to everyone ?


 


I did run into a cute girl, but she didn't want anything to do with me..................too bad, we could have had a great time.


   


We started up real early and headed south towards Moms puppy friends house, you know Lotta that came and visited us a while back. Now Mom is getting comfortable piloting Adrienne so here goes the camera shooting while driving again.

Notice our president who came along and nods his head approving of everything we do......


 


What on earth is this ? looks scary ...............like from some sience fiction movie or .........


  



at Lottas house there was little kittens everywhere, but unfortunately not very friendly. Reminded me of my own cat I used to have at home..............spitting and hissing even if just look at them, still very cute...........too bad we couldn't make friends.


       


this guy was hissing just to see a picture of me.............or maybe he was laughing at Mom ?


 


So many pretty flowers and bushes in Lottas garden, I can tell Moms fingers were itching to start working.

Think she's having gardening abstinence.... 


 


Yesterday was Swedens 4th of july, which they celebrate June 6 ?.....................strange .

I'll write about that a little later, it's time for my morning walk..........


kisses to you all....................Buttons

Once again mom was too tired to update my blog last night, so here we are...........in a small village called Malmköping.

The campsite is very nice, but expensive, and most people here stay all summer and set up their trailers with tents, and plant a garden and so on........it felt like they looked at us with suspicion ?

Who cares anyway, we had great company, Sigge mushroom dog and his Mom, and Lady M and her Mom. Lady M's Mom had baked cinnamon buns and that's my Moms favorite...........how did she know ?


     


On  our way here we passed under an aerial tramway that was built in 1939 to transport limestone from the mine. At the time they found it the most economic way, but now it’s under immediate threat of demolition since it’s not profitable anymore. Hopefully they’ll keep it as a historic site, and maybe let tourist ride it to watch wildlife in a slow quiet way.  They do that at a different tramway up north close to Moms birthplace... ( I’ll get back to that later  )


 



We are now very close to a winding path were you can go hiking  in the wilderness for over 1000 kilometers, it’s called Sörmlandsleden, and Sigge and his Mom is responsible for parts of it.


Both me and Mom loves this, but unfortunately I had 4 ticks on me when we got back. Mom couldn’t believe it since I was wearing Frontline ??  Lady M’s Mom who’s a dog doctor explained for Mom that it DID work since they never attached to suck blood.......... yyeeessh sometimes Mom isn’t using her brain 



       


First thing I did when Mom took the collar off, was to run like a bat outta hell down to the beach...............where no dogs allowed sign is.   Mom got mad, but I told her I can't read, and I wanted to go swimming just like Sigge did......oh well...............


 


When our visitors came we walked into town and had "fika" ( a very important Swedish word ) tea and cookie at a cafe where we four legged were welcome.


   


wonder what it was Sigge didn't like   ...................


 


we strolled in town and window shopped a little, this is very small so that was done in a snap.....


     


Sigge got to swim in the fountain !!!!!!


 


Again Mom and her lilacs


 


Anyone read he novel "The 100 year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared "  written by Jonas Jonasson ?   Anyway,  this is the senior home it all started at............and there's a movie planned scripted from the book.............................great publicity for the little town


 


we walked home on the historic railroad tracks, and Mom was quite proud of me, being able to keep up with the longer legged dogs................but boy was I pooped.



   


this is strange looking dude I've never seen before, he hissed at me and Mom didn't let me sniff him

wonder why __?


 


today we'll be on our way, don't know where yet................

We’re now at a campsite in a small town called Malmköping, Mom was supposed to update my blog last night, but we got some very special visitors Mr. Sigge mushroom dog himself, and his Mom. We received his book and a candle and sap-cream to keep the pesky mosquitos away. We will see them again later today .....so right now I’m resting to save energy for the meeting.


     


Sigge is a real good swimmer and totally crazy about chasing sticks


 


We are driving along the beautiful countryside, trying to avoid the highways, (not that there are too many in Sweden) In this area it’s mostly farmland, and many windmills, the modern kind that generates electricity for the farm.


     



I truly enjoy the wiev from this high seat


 


 
We arrived at Julita and I thought that I was going to be left in Adrienne for sure, but to my big surprise I was allowed to come along to the park. (The Swedes aren’t quite as dog-friendly as at home ) Couldn’t follow on the tours inside the buildings though, but that’s ok, I didn’t care, and Mom is more interested in gardens anyway.
for people that are interested in history.
The monastery is so old it’s hard to imagine, and here is their website  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julita_Abbey
 
       
 
 
we took a long walk through the pastures and I could smell there has been meatball factories walking here, but no meatballs ?
   
 
There's one I shouted, a funny looking one !! NO said Mom that's a milkfactory........................yuck who wants milk I said ..................I do said Mom, best drink ever...........hmm after a little closer look she noticed there's no milk just steak.................mmmm
 
 
Mom took thousand pictures, and here's some of them of the manor.
 
            
 
I met this lady that was dressed like she belonged in the mansion, but she told me she wasn’t, she just showed people around in there. Keyword is people , not that I cared, who wants to look at a bunch of old stuff anyway ? especially when you have this huge garden to roam around in
 
 
 
 
 
Check this rooster out !!! same colors as the ones in Key West, but this one was HUMONGOUS, his owners house wasn't so big, looked real cosy
 
   
 
There was so many awesome old houses made from big logs...............
 
       
 
insides were pretty awsome too, but not very big, beds looked very short, enough for me to curl up in, but what about Mom  ?  or even worse Dad ?
 
     
 
between  these beds it says “ for the lazy, it’s always weekend “, probably something dad wrote said Mom
 
 
 
 
Church steeple is cool
 
 
Sammie Sammie, is that you ?  Do you have any meatballs for me ? ...............It wasn't her  boohoooo
 
 
 
White lilacs with a scent that make Moms head spin, no good for allergies, but it's Swedish summer so she loves it anyway. flowers that looks like cosmos on steroids ..
 
   
 
Hey, how about making me some meatballs !!!!  no response................what a woodpecker
 
 
 
Time to leave this place Mom, I need water and a nap.................OK
 
     
 
It’s 10 am Tuesday morning, and it’s quite windy outside, kind of chilly too. Good thing Adrienne is keeping us warm, so we plan to stay at home reading Sigge’s book until they show up later today.
PS. We always say that “everything is big in America” but you should see the mosquitoes here ...............holy cow....
Wet kisses to all reading my blog, wish you left a note sometimes too

Another  beautiful morning by the lake, birds chirping, Mom getting up waaaay to early, I'm sleeping in at least another hour..................you hear !! get that damm camera away..............


 


Yesterday we were invited to Sandras birthday and had lots of cake..............in other words, MOM had a lot of cake, I got nothing again............STEPH !!! tell her again


 


I kept busy with dogs and kitties that lived there.........


 


This is the dog at the harbor we're staying...........he looks a little mean, and Mom didn't let me go find out.


  



This is a chestnut tree, but not the kind we're roasting, couldn't eat the fruit, but it's still very pretty


     



 


This is aunt Ellys porch, very comfortable and where

snacks sometimes fall from the table......when Mom isn't watching


 


It was raining yesterday, so I got to ride in my new stroller for the first time, much to the Swedes amusement..............but what do they know anyway ..............

Gorgous walk with trees lining the dirtroad...................keywords, dirtroad, rain, white coat, stroller...


    e



In this little village there's a papermill,  (guess that's the biggest reason the village is here ) and sometimes I cold detect a strange odor, that comes from the chimeny.........


    



This was the scenery we woke up to this morning, can;t complain


 


Think bigfoot has been here.....................good thing I slept ....


 


this must be a pretty old boat, Mom don't think they make them like this anymore...


 



Mom is crazy about flowers, and these she found in aunt Ellys oldest daughter Birgittes house. Guess what the purple ball is called ..


   


and dandelines everywhere, which is a weed...................but pretty enough to keep I think


   



MOM, for crying out loud, is this really nessecary !!!!!!         I really prefer privacy when I take care of this business, and that's why I need the stupid lead gone...............and Mom comply most of the time.


 


OK, since my business is taken care of , (and Moms I think ) it's time to empty Adrienne of her dirty water and fill her with fresh, and than we'll be on our way.....................where to ???? not sure yet, but probably to the east.........................I'll let you know later tonight..,,,,,,

Another early morning, and the weather is gorgeous, sunny clear blue skies and 85 degrees. The scenery over the the water is breathtaking, and Mom goes on and on and on, about how we have to go out and take a walk ............NOooooo, it's 4,30 AM go back to bed I tell her     ......she didn't but at least she didn't drag me out when she went for her first walk and early shower..................This is the shrimp sandwich she bragged about yesterday


 


At 9 am I decided to keep her company and go along, to look at the harbor and greet some of the dogs I met yesterday.


 


This giirl was a mix between Lhasa Apso and Papillon, very cute but with a very stuck up attitude, . She thought she was all that.................HA you got nothing on me I told her...........




This big guy was just a puppy and very nervous but he got a few quick wiffs of me, and I let him think I didn`t notice, just to give him confidence..........


 


This was the cutest little Havanese girl, I could definitley date her, but Mom said she was a little too young for me....................MOMMMMMM!!!  age is just a number................right ?



At 10 AM all these old cars came driving in, and lots of people came to admire them. I don't understand this..............Adrienne is also old, but noone stops to admire her................it's because she's ot old ENOUGH says Mom ?????..........who knew it was such a thing about age ?5 more years if sheäs still healthy we could join these kind of rallys.




                     


We walked a few sidestreets and Mom admired the flowers in peoples windows. You can't take pictures in to peoples windows I told her..........I thougth she didn't hear me, but  she did, since this is the only picture she took at that walk,..............puuhhhh.................sometim

es she can be so embarrassing..............and her response to that.......................at least I don't jump up on the table in strange peoples home and eat their Pytt i panna....................ok ok we all make mistakes I said.



  



nice man that opened his ice-cream store took this nice picture, and told us stories about his trip to our home state. Lots of people we meet has been there, and they ALL talk about how wonderful time they had............doesn't surprise me one bit................but it's pretty nice here too. 


 


At noon we came back to  Adrienne and we filled her up with more fuel, and boy is that expencive says Mom more than $ 100 for 47 liter..............hua...............We drove less than 30 min. and came to a place I remember well from 5 years ago. To  Jan's Mom Elly, but first we had coffe in his sisters garden, and i met Sofie, a real cute and sweet  Spaniel I think it was................battery in Moms camera was gone so no picture of her


 


Elly was so happy to see me, and that was mutual believe me..................but I'm getting ahead of myself


I did meet another dog just like the nervous one, and this one was amazing........ look how he's folding his feet

He came from waaay up north, close to Moms puppy-home....so maybe I'll get to se him again





  


At Ellys house I can do pretty much what I want, we went for walks and looked at a place to park Adrienne

where we can charge all Moms stuff.  It's a harbour for small boats, at the same lake as before, called Vättern.


          


Time for bed, Mom's tired..................see you soon everybody
