Thanks for that Erik.. it's a lot of bother to have gone to, I know, so I really appreciate it.
As for the US infiltration of my computer.. I have to admit I've always been somewhat suspicious of Tim (in San Jose)'s loyalties.. He was shooting from the other hip this time round from Aachen in Germany.. and then flying over Ireland to get back the the San Jose in the US of A..
Methinks he may just have done some computer hacking while over Irish waters...
Those Americans.. you just can't turn your back on them for one minute!
The tricky part was making the new address label I had printed up look just like the labels you sent over in the package Sile.
But American injinuity triumphed. Nobody else noticed it was hand printed. In crayon. In orange.
He he I betcha you'd find a lot of crazy norskies in Nashville, country music is BIG over here!
Local stereotype used to be a young fellow in an old banged-out swedish car (volvo) living in the car, playing C&W 24/7, fat as a zeppeliner from too many burgers and coke - in short excellent picture material!
Do they sing the English version of the songs or are they just that style of music, but with Norwegian lyrics?
Do you have a direct translation for "redneck"?
If not, I think you need one. Make them feel at home. We don't need any more over here!
Both ways norskie lyrics and scanlish version.... one dude have even apperared on Garnd 'Ole Opry. He is a standup guy BTW, Bjørgo Haaland, but getting old.
We DO call them rednecks, no need to translate a perfectly superb expression! And truth be told, some of my best friends are! Most of these guys are resourceful and helpsome, can fix themselves supper by way of fishingrod or hunting rifle any day or season, and will make your car move, no matter what! I have no disdain fro redneck either side of the Big Pond. Some of them are funny though! On the other hand I betchyou they think WE are also, wasting time on sumkin' so totally useless as picturetaking stuff!
