A Taste of Norway

Tuesday, August 29th, 2006

I’ve been remiss in not posting my pictures from Norway. To whet your appetite here are a couple of teasers. I’ll have the rest online shortly. The first picture is our friends Kaspar and Sabine, whose wedding was the impets for the trip. The second picture is of a waterfall right outside our hotel in Uggdal.

Before: Gross Room

Tuesday, August 29th, 2006

I finally cleared the gross room in our basement. It was full of the items we never unpacked and luggage and other random junk. I have big plans to turn it into a sleek modern office with bamboo floors. Of course I’m also using it as a warm-up for future home improvements in more visible rooms. It may be a year before you get the after photo. Hopefully not.

In what turned out to be a fun surprise, I found a copy of the Iowa City Press Citzen from August 27th, 1968 under the carpet – thirty-eight years to the day after it was printed. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
