Olympic Gold Medalist...

Olympic Gold Medalist...

...A W Persson once lived in this house at the corner of Gamla Stockholmsvägen and Kvarnvägen in Tungelsta. When my mother was a young school girl in the 1940ths, her friend Eva lived here. Eva's dad was a famous cyclist and as my mother remembers it they had a big cabinet filled with sports plaques from his career.His greatest achievement is a gold medal from the 1912 Stockholm Olympic Games!

Bigger photo.

You got quite a few snowy shots during this non-winter. Here are two lessons for the rest of us to learn:

1. Be patient. You never know when your photo-op will appear. Winter could start late March!
2. Be prepared. Go get it when you have the chance and don't wait.

Good shot.
