As usual Bertil followed us on the afternoon walk. He wasn´t to happy to walk around in this high grass. Fantastic what a small cat can miau loud :-)

Yesterday was a day well spent at work! Non not really, on the contrary acutully :-) They had as usual forgotten to leave a note telling me what to paint. So I painted the yhings I saw by the paint box. Shouldn´t have done that. I should have put on a different paint before the one I usually does :-) The things they wanted me to paint were in a different part of the factory, why they were there I have no idea. It would have been better to let me stay at home and still pay me :-)

To boldly go where no man gone before :-)
Well I have been here before but during summer I tend to avoid this high grass because of all tics there. But despite the last rains it has been so dry here that most tics are gone.

I had told them that we neded more air nozzels to the equipment that I can paint things with the same standard as car coating. It was supposed to be me that should buy these things, but instead they sent another man that didn´t know what I was talking about. Do I have to tell You that he bought everything that I didn´t want, but not the things we need :-) :-) :-)

Here comes some pictures that shows what´s going on in my garden right now!

The election to the EU parlament were yesterday over almost all Europe. Only about 43% of the population voted and in many countries the sitting governement were punished by the voters. Unfortunally a lot of rasist parties got a lot of votes and places in the parlament. We sweeds didn´t send rasists to the parlament, but instead we got a newly made party there instead. Pirat partiet or in english, The Pirate Party. They got loads of votes now when it became illegal to download music and mivies on the internet (for free, not those that we pay for). The party is also against a new law that will make it possible for the military to read all our mail and listen to all our mobile phone phonecalls. I´ll tell You about that disguisting law later. It´ll take some time for me to write that in english so You understand what I mean.

I´ve decided me for making a small pond. Now I only have to find a place nearby that sells the rubber carpet that will keep the water in the pond. Wouldn´t be a to big of a problem since it´s quite popular to make ponds over here.
Have a greate day now!

Hi Christer.

Your garden looks beautiful...just glorious blooms you have.

I loved reading about the EU Parliment elections...of course being a Political Science graduate I find that kind of thing fascinating...World and American politics and all! ;) I'm looking forward to your follow-up post explaining the privacy laws behind mail and cell phone usage! WOW is all I can say!

Hope you are doing well my friend,

Hi Valerie!
I´m very interested in politics especially Yours in the US. I hope that I can explain this new law we are getting. So it´ll possibly take some time before You can read about it here.
have a great day now!

Hi joyce!
No, I bought a new camera some weeks ago. It´s a good one, but I do miss my old anyway.

I wouldn´t be that nice to call it a communication problem :-) :-)It usually ends by me yealling at the owner :-) :-) But I do like working there anyway in some strange way :-)

Yes they do like walking around here. The cay Bertil always follows us on the walks if he can, his brother Teodor is more reluctant though.

I wish we could get some of Your warm weather. We have frost almost every might now and it´s tough for all small plants here. Your dog´s really smart:-)
Have a great day now!

Hi Nina!
It´ll be just a small pond, but I´ve just decided where it will be placed!

The best organisation there is :-) :-) :-) But I like working there and am really happy to have a job at all.

I too long for all buds to open up, but with this cold weather who knows when that´ll happen :-)
Have a great day now!

Christer, looks like your garden will soon rival the DuPont's of Pennsylvania. Pretty pictures, that is a good camera. So what will be the demensions of the pond? Our Patriot Law is a big brother law too but has to be renewed every so often and I was quite surprised the Democrats renewed it last year. I thought for sure they would let it expire. Enjoy your frost! :)

Hi Z&M!
My garden isn´t that beautiful really, but it has its spots :-)

It´ll be just a small pond Perhaps 1,5 meters (591 inches) wide and maximum two meters (6,5 feet) long. Probably a bit smaller. But deep enough to not freeze all the way to the bottyom in winter. I think that would be 1 meter (394 inches) deep.

This law of ours would inklude You too in a way. All mail, blogs and mobilephone phoning (inkluding sms and mms) that comes to or goes from Sweden via servers abroad will be monitored by the military. Using wrong words in these mails and so on could give us all problems if unlucky.

I just love to scrape ice from my car windows in morning :-) :-)
Have a great day now!
