Close to Lotta's house there's a horse farm where som very expensive horses are bred. They are the kind that runs on a track with a little wagon attached behind them, and in it, a person is sitting and steering. If they run really fast they make a lot of money for their owners. 

 

 

As we're driving by, Mom shouts for Lotta to stop. There's a horse laying down giving birth to, as we later found out a filly. I wasn't allowed out of the car, and Lotta quickly went back to the stable to get help if it should be needed.
Mom was nervously waiting until the stable hand arrived, she kept thinking if she's supposed to do anything? if so what ? AND the worst part, she realized the camera was left at Lotta's house...........which she was kind enough to go and get.

 

       

 

The filly kept trying to stand up, but didn't succeed and kept falling. Mom wanted to help it, but the stable girl and the owner were there, and they, of course, knew what to do. Guess nature takes care of itself

 

           

 

They went and got a wheelbarrow, and told the filly her taxi arrived. Fillies Mom followed along and they were both installed in the stable.

 

   

 

The owner proceeded to milk the Mom and fed the filly milk from a bottle because apparently the first milk is extremely important for her to drink to keep her healthy.

 

 

 

All in all, it was a beautiful experience to watch in real life, says Mom. My view from the car wasn't very interesting.

Mom painted a portrait of me on a rock, to watch over the cat there. Not sure who that kitty is ? it doesn't look anything near Morre? but we'll look for a suitable rock to make a portrait of him join.


 


Thursday noon we left Lotta's house and Mom drove to a place that had powerwash tools to get all the yellow stuff off Lucy.She was pretty full of dead bugs in the front too.

 

 

 

Now I'm almost caught up to on my story. I'll tell you about today tomorrow ............ok?
Not sure what will happen tomorrow, all I know is that we're leaving the place we're at now..............new adventures awaiting..........woo hoo.

Here's a little prewiev...............this is last night's sunset, and we went for a very long bike ride today.

It's Friday, but I have to go back in time with my story. ( have no clue when we'll catch up)

Tuesdays excursion went to Astrid Lindgren's park, and Mom and Lotta started a competition on who was better at remembering things from a long long time ago. (That's what old people do)When they were about 8 years old they were in a school play, where Mom was Pippi and Lotta the teacher Prussiluskan.I would have given anything for a picture from that time, it was almost 60 years ago !!!!

     


Anyway, the park was gorgeous, with all the fairy tales represented in a miniature format. Not as elaborate as Disney's parks, but there was way more interactive stuff for kids to do and fantasize about. Mom actually tried the stilts, and she managed pretty good for an old lady.

 

           

 

Astrid Lindgren (14 November 1907 – 28 January 2002) was a Swedish writer of fiction and screenplays. She is best known for children's book series featuring Pippi Longstocking, Emil i Lönneberga, Karlsson-on-the-Roof, and the Six Bullerby Children (Children of Noisy Village in the US), as well as the children's fantasy novels Mio min Mio, Ronia the Robber's Daughter and The Brothers Lionheart.
As of May 2013, she is the world's 18th most translated author and the third most translated children's writer after H. C. Andersen and the Grimm brothers. Lindgren has sold roughly 144 million books worldwide.

         

By 2012 Astrid Lindgren's books had been translated into 95 different languages. Further, the first chapter of Ronja the Robber's Daughter has been translated into Latin. Up until 1997 there had internationally been issued a total of 3000 editions of her books, and globally her books had sold a total of 150 million pieces. Many of her books have been translated to English by the translator Joan Tate.
In 1976, a scandal arose in Sweden when it was publicized that Lindgren's marginal tax rate had risen to 102%. The news item led to a stormy tax debate. In the parliamentary election later in the same year, the Social Democrat government was voted out for the first time in 44 years, and the Lindgren tax debate was one of several controversies that may have contributed to this result.Yet Lindgren remained a Social Democrat for the rest of her life.

 

     

 

This pretty lady was selling waffles, the best ever both Mom and Lotta said. The strawberry jam was homemade and absolutely delicious.  

 

   


Lindgren was well known both for her support for children's and animal rights and for her opposition to corporal punishment. In 1994, she received the Right Livelihood Award, "For her commitment to justice, non-violence and understanding of minorities as well as her love and caring for nature.

the flowers in the park were covered in pollen, and the lilac's in full bloom, not the greatest for Mom's allergy.

 

   

 

When we've seen enough of the park we drove a small country road through the forest to have a picknick Lotta had prepared.
This tree is more than 1,000 years old and it is 14 meters (46 ft) high, with a trunk approximately 13 meters (43 ft) in circumference and a volume of approximately 60 cubic meters (78 cu yd), making it one of the largest trees in Sweden.

 

   

There was an iron band around the trunk to support it, thought to have been put there in the 19th century. It was partially replaced after being cut in 2005 by someone who said he wanted to "free" the tree. It was replaced in 2013 by an arborist. A chain a little higher up prevents the trunk from splitting; the tree is now completely hollow. Climbing has been forbidden since 1998 and there is a fence around the tree, going closer than 5 meters (16 ft) is not permitted ? Mom broke that rule when she placed one of her little ladybugs in the hollow. Hope we don't get into trouble since my address is on the back. In any event, I'll deny, deny and deny any knowledge of this law breaking.
The hollow trunk of the tree was the location for sex scenes in I Am Curious (Yellow), a 1967 film by Vilgot Sjöman. The film was controversial when first released, including being banned in Massachusetts; in a case that went all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States, it was ultimately determined not to be obscene. Haha, no wonder Swedish woman had a reputation in the older days

 

After a long day out and about, Lotta made a delicious spinach pie and served with a great salad.
Not something I care for, but it didn't matter since Lotta had picked up some great treats for me at the supermarket. They tasted pretty close to those that Max, my neighbor used to give me.

After supper we were so exhausted we fell asleep and missed the dessert of strawberries and ice cream...........

If the PC connection stays this good where we are now,I'll make Mom continue this story after a bike ride.          where we are ? I give you a clue, we have been here with Adrienne, and it's an island. 

 

later alligator
