This has been a wonderful, active and plentiful summer. Gunnar painted his garage floor red. Serina posing for the cell phone cam in the MG TF
Gunnar and Espen doing guy's work. Changing oil on the automatic gear box on Espen's Chevvy.
Lots of fun at the quays at Harbor Days. "Sons of Norway " lodge 8, with the slogan "We are taking care of our heritage." They were proud to participate on my blog, and said,"We are sending greetings to all Norwegian/American and embrace the Canadian likewise."

James Joyce has been resting this week, too much fun to do, and then the "restless farewell."

Originated by MaryT, check hers for today

Gunnar has a garage that any gearhead craves! A ruby floor makes his toy that parks in there look like it is going faster even when standing still. Serina has the look that says that this is real 'guy' stuff...the TF is beautiful!

Great Rubies!! said...

I'll take the MG please!! What a great shot with Serina in that beautiful car.

Trish said...

I am finally catching up on my blog reading after being away.
Your Serina is beautiful and she does belong in that car...maybe as a model for an advertisement!
As always your photo's are delightful and I love your Norway!!!

I love the greetings from the Sons of Norway gals. I used to be a member of Sons of Norway in the US. My parents had been active most of their adult life. At first, they were involved on Long Island in NY and when they moved to Florida, my dad became the lodge president for many years. My mom was always the musician as she could play piano by ear. They also used to do many of the folk dances with a group that performed.

I love your photos. Serena looks great and the cars are awesome.

Love you,

Felisol said...

Dear Amrita,
Thank you for always being so sweet and considerate.
Good friends are rare like diamonds.
I'm comforted to have you as my friend!

Colleen said...

I enjoy the lively splashes of red in your brilliant pictures! The first one is particularly fun! I hope that Serina has had a very good start to the school year and that you are coping well with her being gone awhile.
And great picture of the flags together!!:) There really is such a rich Scandinavian history in both the States and Canada.

Crown of Beauty said...

What lovely pictures...a garage so lovely, and a lovely young woman looking so at home in that car...

And the flags, and the smiling faces!

Such a delight to see these photos, thanks for sharing another Ruby Tuesday offering with us, Felisol!

That Serina has such classic good looks! Gunnar's red painted floor gives such a clean crisp feel to his man cave (garage). Mr. Mac would like the floor paint .. our garage floor has always had a clear coat or epoxy paint put down .. almost clean enough to eat off of ... and feels so nice when walking barefooted in the summer. Good job.

The Sons of Norway ... well, they are here in the North Woods of Idaho. Just yesterday our paper had a large article sporting the heritage of the Norwegians in our area ... and our local museum is having a Scandanavian program hosting different heritage groups (including the Norwegians and Danes) ... food included :) Will try and send you the newpaper article with pictures. A good Ruby Tuesday post. Hugs,
