FRIDAY MORNING

Av EvaLena Hallgren - 22 maj 2015 06:40

Plane leaving Orlando was delayed, so arriving in Frankfurt the connection flight to Stockholm had already left. Never have I seen such a big airport and confusing as hell. Since we had to wait a long time for next flight, mom brought me outside so I could go to the bathroom which was a plus. The bad part is you have to go through security again, which is a real pain in the a$$.
The flight was a nightmare for mom, but not for me I was an angel, never complained, didn't make a sound. Nobody even knew I was there in my bag on the floor, and a few hours in her lap under the blanket. Mom sat next to a very big man and his wife from Germany. The big man had part of is body on moms side since the seats are made for tiny people, and the wife stretched out her legs across the mans lap so her feet ended up in moms .................some people are clueless ?? 
Anyway, next flight to Stockholm was a pleasure. We met a really nice couple, he from Canada, and she from Sweden. Mom made friends and now she seemed in better spirits again, although very tired. We arrived safely in Stockholm but our luggage didn't, it was left behind in Frankfurt.......oh well
Here we had a lot of time too, so I got another chance for a bathroom brake.
We had one more flight to final destination, Moms puppy town, where our friends Vanja and Lizze was waiting. This is a tiny airport nothing like I've ever seen, and now for the first time I got ornery and jumped out of the bag and made a run for it. I dodged a lot of people but realized this was really scary and mom soon caught me. She wanted to know where I was going..............I told her anywhere as long as it isn't an airport, and she agreed. 
 
   
 
It was totally awesome to arrive at our friend house, and of course the "FIKA" started. Fika is a Swedish tradition, and they do it a lot, and they do it everywhere, wherever you go. There's so many places to buy fika, and everyone you visit serves you fika (that's why mom got fatter last time we were here shhhhh )  This time our neighbor Max in Florida told her he's keeping a close eye on her so he can stop her if needed. .......................what if she doesn't post any pictures Max, than what ?  If you promise to keep those treats of yours coming I'll make sure to keep you posted.
 
 
 
We are now in Moms puppy town Skellefteå and we have slept 2 nights in Lucy. I'm not quite sure what to think about her yet, (there's all kind of noises I have to figure out ) but Mom absolutely loves her. She's smaller than Adrienne but a hell of a lot stronger an much easier to drive. First night she was parked inside a big machine hall so there was pretty dark and quiet, kind of like home. Now we are parked next to Vanja and Lizzes house and guess what people......................it never got dark. Mom woke up at 2 am, birds are chirping in Swedish and the sun is on it's way up. At home that means time to get up, but here it's not so.
I thought mom knew all this stuff, but she seems very confused and got up and made coffee. I of course have to wait for my breakfast ?..................oh well..............a few more days and she'll get the hang of this again.
   
 
 
 
Our suitcase was delivered the following day, which was very nice, but everything in it stinks horribly ? and as we all know mom has a nose like a bloodhound, so I figured it was in her imagination, but Vanja also noticed so all the clothes have to be aired .....................
We did a premier drive yesterday and mom was very pleased..................but I wasn't. Even if I really do love moms friend Vanja, she was in my space and I had to sit in the back ?  It's not always easy to be me.............and of course they left me alone to watch Lucy while they went to Fika............I'm going to have a chat with some Swedish colleges to find out if they too get left behind like this ?  if so maybe I'll organize a protest to make fika available for us too.
 
 
 
 
 
Spring is very late this year,  leaves on the trees have not opened all the way yet, but
at 2 am this morning we heard the coo coo bird.....................(yes dad, it's a REAL bird not only in clocks ) and that's a real sign of spring. We also heard some cranes making noise, and they spoke the same language as the the ones we have. Not a  pretty sound for us, but here it's another sign of spring. The birds sing all night here ? it's very pretty, but I like to know when do they sleep ? 
 
   
 
at our morning walk today we met this row of little people. The picture is blurry because mom aimed the camera from the hip, assuming the teachers wouldn't be to pleased about exposing the kids. It was a playschool on an outing, and they all wear these vests to warn everybody to be careful around them ??? WHAT ? are they dangerous ? no mom says, but just like you they can be unpredictable and careless................ME careless ???
They also have a long rope with loops, and every kid have their own loop to hold on to, and there's a teacher at each end..................cool huh ?

Hey: Where r u haven't heard from u since Friday. R U and Buttons doing alright? Have U talked to John? Do U know how Lilly is doing. I think of her everyday. Waiting to hear from you. Jim has sold his golf cart. Yeah! Also went to an Estate sale down the street Friday and bought a picture for 22.50 that after looking up the artist on the internet may be worth between 4 & 5 hundred dollars. Good for me. Hugs to you both.

Last night we spent by this river and we both slept very well as the wind rocked us to sleep. In the morning it was sunny and it looked like it'll turn out to another gorgeous day.   there is not much traffic here and it could feel pretty lonely...

Just woke up and we're parked by a lake in the middle of nowhere, at least that's what I think but Mom says she knows exactly where we are and where we're going.................so we'll see. We've been visiting with Moms cousins in their gorgeous l...

An entire week has been gone by since my update and that's because Mom says we don't have much to tell right now. We are at Mom's puppy town and visiting so many homes eating and eating and eating and in between, we do "fika" I have most wrapped ...

we finally made it to Mom's puppy town and now parked at a cousins house. On the way North there are two bridges that frighten Mom terribly, and this is one of them. It's like Swedens Golden Gate, very tall so Mom has to concentrate on looking at a...

As we have done every year we stopped at the small village where Mom often stayed as a puppy, only this time the lady I had wrapped around my paw had passed over the rainbow bridge,but since I really didn't want to believe she had left, I did make a ...
