Swedish Summer!!

Forget about Geneva Seals, PP, AP, Rolex etc,
but of course remember Vacheron Constantin and please my friends,
share the Swedish summer with me, today, just now, at the 23rd of June 2009, high noon Swedish Summer!!
Swedish Summer!!

Swedish Summer!!

Dogs are leashed, because two moose calves from last year just passed by,
about 30 meters away, half an hour ago!
Their mother is kicking the calves out by this time, because the bull is by her side,
or you know where he is!  Swedish Summer!!
Bull's eye perhaps...Swedish Summer!!

Swedish Summer!!

I put my watch on the table, so Alex wont be angry on me, because I'm going to have a swim,
and he got mad at me, when I told him that I once did with the watch on my wrist Swedish Summer!!
"Mats, you are stupid, you can't bath with that watch"!
to which I responded: " But it says it waterproof to 30 meters!"
He told me that "you can't rely on these figures", and I said "but man,
it's a Vacheron Constantin, isn't it?!"
But now I do as you say Boss Swedish Summer!!

Swedish Summer!!

Enjoy the Summer Swedish Summer!!

Hey Doc, looks like an interesting book on WWI.  May I also recommend The Kaiser's Battle by Martin Middlebrook?  A clever juxtaposition of British and German battle dispatches, with intelligent narrative for a real frontline perspective.
Hi Dean and congrats to your heroic walk!

The book I strongly can recommend is, "Winston Churchill As I Knew Him", by Violet Bonham Carter, who was daughter to the Liberal Prime Minister H. H. Asquith, who was Prime Minister from 1908 to 1916, which means during WWI. She and Winston were very close friends, remember WSC started as a liberal. He was as a son in the Asquith's house. She is the only one except for Winston,  who tells the true story about the Gallipoli expedition (Dardanelles). If not read it's a must. Second time I read it. I have a lot of WSC's production, which is enormous,  and I'm privileged to have many first editions. He always fascinates me, every time I read something new or re-read my books This one, Winston, is namned after him Cheers Doc

Moose can taste very different from animal to animal. If they are 'wood living' or if they have the opportunity to eat cereals! The first ones tastes a bit of pine and are not as good, as the ones that have a more varied menue, but that's of course my taste.  Same with deer.  But it's anyway good,especially if you still have the hunt in memory Cheers Doc
