    Bon dimanche, L&B! I love the sound of those low temps in Norway (but then again I’m not a sunshine gal from Alabama 🙂 ). Can’t wait to hear about your time there.

    We will try to hold onto the Paris warmth in the coming week for your return. You guys know how to live! Cheers and happy travels.

    Regarding the possibility of Bernie sleeping standing up, it just shows that he’s a man of many talents; and besides, at our age a nap is where you find it…or where it finds you!

    I tried 2 sentences and the site told me my comment was “too short.” So here…Have fun!

    Linda, I may have told you that I have Norwegian roots on my father’s side. I have longed to go to Norway for years so I will be interested to learn from you. Also, you should know that there is an Alabama poet — Robert Gray — who lives in Bergen and teaches at the University there! He’s from Mobile and posts on FB if you want to look him up.

    We will continue to enjoy your travels!

      Hi Jeanie, I’ll like him on FB and let him know that you and I are friends. Always a small world.

    Linda, you will love Norway, but you will soon discover that if you see one fjord you’ve seen them all. Jim
