This Just In!

This Just In!
Is that a blue sky? If so it was there for several minutes. Don't think I have seen something like that for at least a couple of weeks! Must have been the first time this month. As witnessed at the Krigslia bridge one hour ago.

Walking the Earth

Walking the Earth
I read an article yesterday about a man, Eric who had walked around the planet. Sort of. For the last decade, he had walked the same promenade every day year-round in the picturesque Hagaparken. No matter the weather. He was celebrated yesterday with flowers and cake. This man has done the same. His daily walk takes him from Tungelsta to the retirement home in Västerhaninge where his wife lives, and then home again. I don't know his name but we often stop for a chat. He is always very positive and has told me quite a few stories over the years. I guess I should buy him coffee one day. And cake.
