Again we didn't drive very far, but we arrived at Birgitte's house who has a grouchy cat whose name I never remember 

It's a boy cat and Mom thinks he's cute, I say he's no Lilly


Look he had the nerve to sit in MY MOMS Lap to get petted and he didn't care that I protested?


If this nonsense keeps up I know a lady down the road where there are no cats and a full fridge with goodies that she's willing to share with me. I know how to get there, Buttons who traveled with Mom before me told me 

So can I go ?

Mom said that lady is with Buttons in rainbow land.........

Just my luck


Well, there's only one thing left to do, and that's making sure this cat's Mom knows my needs, and she's a pretty smart lady so she soon figured it out. 


The day is beautiful so we went for a short road trip to visit a famous Swedish poet's old home and grave.


Carl Gustaf Verner von Heidenstam (6 July 1859 – 20 May 1940) was a Swedish poet, novelist, and laureate of the 1916 Nobel Prize in Literature. He was a member of the Swedish Academy from 1912. His poems and prose work are filled with great joy of life, sometimes imbued with a love of Swedish history and scenery, particularly its physical aspects.


This is the view from his house and he was often sitting under this beautiful tree admiring the scenery

his final rest is also here


On the property, there are several smaller houses one where they usually sell delicious shrimp sandwiches, but to our big disappointment it was closed


lots of wild "forget me not" flowering 


This house is built by an eccentric who has too much money and time says Mom. It's private so we just passed by


Mom and her friend are now on the hunt for a great shrimp sandwich and two more places were closed so finally we stopped in Mom's favorite Swedish town Askersund. They had shrimp but not the old fashion ones they really wanted but why not try something new? Well, fancy marinated shrimp with a very spicy sauce was a bit disappointing but it stopped their hunger


I got ice cream and my only complaint was I didn't get enough 

On our way home the sky opened up and a much-needed rainfall. Unfortunately for all farmers and nature, it soon stopped.

This morning we woke up to a grey sky but no rain yet, 

I haven't heard anything about plans but I have a feeling we'll have a lazy relaxing day 

all is well, 

wet kisses

Good Morning everyone  We are not in Poprad like Mom planned instead we are at a village about a half-hour outside of Poprad, and that's because Mom found this campsite that on their website claimed they had a washing machine. It turned out they di...
