I have some friends and family who get around in this world. I have stolen some pictures from them that have been posted on Facebook mostly, and am posting them here without permission from them. I hope they aren't embarrassed or that they don't sue me for defamation of character or anything like that. They shouldn't be as I have used my great abilities of judgement to post some of what I think are cool photos. If anyone is offended I apologize. Not everyone is included here because that would take more time than anyone might want to spend here. Almost all of these are close family.
Besides, I couldn't think of anything else to write about today. Well, that's not entirely true either, but that's my reasoning and I'm sticking to it. Here goes.
From top to bottom we have Anders and Gunhild Iren at the Vatican, Bente and her dog in the mountains, Eyglo in the wilds of Iceland, Suzanne, Knut, Karla, Anne, and Truls at the hytte, Giske and Pia in the mountains, Gro, Felicia, and daughter at breakfast, beautiful Heidi (on the right) with friends.
One last one from yesterday of my favorite local Librarian, Ann, as she climbs the mast on Lake Superior.
And Jono, if we let terrorists steal our joy or if they make us want to stay holed-up in our house, they've REALLY won.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing the joy...
I'm sorry for the loss you experienced. We all lost that day, even if we didn't know anyone personally who was there. You celebrate your friends now with the photos. They're beautiful.ReplyDelete

Great post on this day of sad reminders. We must choose joy or we lose everything worth living for.ReplyDelete
Bloody hell....i remember it as if it was yesterday
Thank you so much for sharing beauty and joy.
Wonderful! Pictures of people having fun. What an adventurous family you have. We should all put as much fun in our lives as possible. I'm going to a cowboy lunch today.... that should be fun. And then the physiotherapist is coming to my house to put me through my excersises, well, that won't be quite as much fun, but I'll enjoy it anyway.ReplyDelete
damn..only place I go to is Westfest and it's 1/2 mile from my apt.ReplyDelete
That's right -- go for the gusto! Even vicariously!ReplyDelete
Dang! Everyone seems to be having more fun than I do. I need to do something about that!ReplyDelete
Sioux, They'll have to blow me up to convince me of anything. I WILL NOT live in fear.ReplyDelete
Janie, It was a great loss, but I think back to my mother in London during the Blitz and my father in occupied Norway and take some hope and strength from that.
jenny_o, It is ultimately the choice we make that sets our lives.
John Gray, Events like that are indelibly etched on our lives. There are a handful I remember.
Elephant's Child, What else could I do?
Shammickite, Lunch is one of my favorite times of the day. The results of your therapy should always be uplifting. At least after the discomfort goes away.
JACIESUE, I don't get out much either which is why I posted other people's fun.
Debra, I need to remember to stay busy living, otherwise I might be slowly dying.
Pixel Peeper, Think of it as dream motivation. Like you, I do get out around the neighborhood regularly. At least it is something.
I think it was one of Larson's cows that said "Don't forget to stop and eat the roses". Still good advice. In many ways life is what we make it, given the set of circumstances we are born in.ReplyDelete
Family and friends.ReplyDelete
Nothing else matters.
This is the perfect attitude to have. All of them are such beautiful, happy people. Where can I get me some of those?ReplyDelete
This is a wonderful 9/11 post. It's often hard to remember the fun and love available to us in this grand world. Thanks for the happy faced reminders, Jono.ReplyDelete
Blog Fodder, Best advice I've heard from a cow.ReplyDelete
That pretty much sums it up.
ABFTS, You could try and marry into the family, but there is a waiting list and a vigorous entrance exam.
Robyn, The doom and gloom gets old, especially in this election year. It doesn't have to be that way all the time.
