Min allvarliga mamma

Min allvarliga mamma. På fotot överst står det Just Sic, our dog and I på baksidan. Dessa foton måste vara strax innan de far till Sverige. ( My serious mother. Of course she wasn´t happy neither before the trip to Sweden nor in the beginning. ) Thank you Dick for this....... Dick sa.. The photo was taken at the front door of 4 Norre gatan(or was it vagen) in Varnamo,where we all lived. Just before Chris died he sent me a lovely card and a photo of Sic and myself taken in 1940 in the backyard. I recall that there was a brook flowing by and that next door was what in those days was called an insane asylum. In 1999 I visited that house( a Swedish Rotarian,a banker I believe, had said the night before"I know the house you lived in and I will take you there tomorrow"),then inhabited by a very kindly elderly gentleman who had many beautiful paintings on the downstairs walls.He invited me to look around and it was most nostalgic. Not much seemed to have changed.Dick 2009-08-26 15:59

Jag har för mig att Sic var Helges jakthund. I så fall är korten tagna i Sverige.

Spännande, jag försökte se likheten med hunden i första inlägget i denna blogg. Och ingen mamma finns att fråga! Vi skulle ha tittat i denna scrapbook tillsammans.

Else-on-the-rock was taken at a cottage near Ustrahult on Vidostern lake. It was owned by Helge and Anna before Skeda.We all spent time there during summers.
