(Norwegian for Good morning.)
Gunnar woke up today and found that his crocs fitted nicely again, he took all credit for this himself, it was, according to him, because he had "his talk" with both the nurse and the doctor yesterday, and they obviously had understood "the facts", again according to himself, regarding what had most likely caused this to happen to him, he spent most of the day explaining "the facts" to them, and really everyone else who came in contact with him, I, among others, overheard him even explaining "the facts", to a instrument repair guy who was lucky enough to work in one of the rooms Gunnar passed on his way thru the building, on one of his many walks of the day to find suitable fact recipients .
I on the other hand noticed that we did not have salmon for dinner as was planned yesterday (Mondays often is fish day), I have not asked him if this was a result of his "facts", but I really hope it is not, I like salmon. Anyway, he is happy and today I think we will continue with the below. ( Not the fish, this we did not have, but the text, I still hope the fish next Monday again though, or else I really need to speak with Gunnar about nutrition.)
Instead we had Swedish meatballs.
I like both, but the salmon is best.
Anyway, we all were happy and satisfied after dinner.
(I use pictures for illustration because I have learned this from looking at others blogs.)
I mentioned earlier a rollator incident that we had in the garden, what happened was that Kari, one of the really senile old ladies at the retirement home, crashed with her rollator, and it was not one of those old-people-fall-over-crashes, this was more of a movie-action-crash, all that was missing was an explosion. Before I continue I must tell you that she did not get hurt, she landed quite elegantly, probably because she thinks she used to be a figure skater, and they have experience falling, ( she never was, her family told us that she was a big fan of Sonja Henie growing up, to be senile can maybe help sometimes). But what happened was, she came down along the path that runs by the grass in good speed, but just when she was to turn into the sitting area on the side of the building, she sort of jolted over the handlebars of her rollator, almost as good as a really pro bicyclist. Gunnar and me watched it happen from our bench, and it was his remark afterwards that made us want to do a small test of the rollators, because he said it just looked as if she locked the wheels before crashing. Gunnar and me, we have seen air crash investigation programs on tv, so we feel we know how to do a investigation properly of the incident, to try to solve what happened. Gunnar of course says that we need to use one of the seniles to make it as close to the original incident as possible, and he also claims that it would be the easiest to have one of them do it, because they will not remember it, and therefor not get any trauma, in case something goes wrong during the tests. I understands his arguments, but we are gentlemen, so of course we will not do this. We will use the new young guy at the home, Rolf, he is 70something, and he really wants in on the next rollator race. This will be a perfect test of his skills. I will of course inform you Internett people on how the test goes, and what we conclude with.
We are also trying to draw a rollator now, we are being professional at our approach to this, so first plans were discussed on what the rollator should have of equipment, and then we started to draw,( a nice gentleman here commented and suggested it, thank you for the good suggestion), we will put head lights, cup holder, umbrella attachement (so we can have it up when it rains), and of course height adjustable handles and a working dashboard, also one handle will be attachable, so it can come of as a cane, think of it as a small escape pod from the mother ship, and best of all, it will look old style.
At least we hope it will, if we can find our drawings, and then manage to finalize them, without loosing them again, nevertheless, we have high hopes for this project.
Eat fish while you can! (and if you like it of course.)
