No, this isn’t a promo for those lovable mop-tops but, rather, the announcement of a mini-vacation for The Weaver’s birthday.
The magical part is that she doesn’t know where we’re going!
More on this next week.
Cars used to have ornaments, something to distinguish the front ends of hoods (bonnets). The 1948 Rolls Royce had a winged angel, a totem to guide the driver’s entrance into heaven after a car crash perhaps?
Part of My May Madness has been a spring housecleaning binge. I've been selling off some of my unused items and yesterday I started my garage sale. Full of esoteric (Flippistic?) objects, it was a rousing success.
Here’s a little something from Joni Mitchell and The Persuasions to get your week started on the right note:
Course in Siglufjörður, 9 - 11 September 2022
With Hallgrímur Helgason and Silja Aðalsteinsdóttir
The travel agency Mundo is a real pleasure to offer sixty hours of education and joy for the curious, bookish and travel-thirsty. During the course, Silja Aðalsteinsdóttir and the author himself, Hallgrímur Helgason, discuss the prize book Sixty kilos of slaps and of course the course will be held in Siglufjörður. This is a true education, entertainment, culture and training where participants get to drink from the well of wisdom of Silja and Hallgrímur as well as go around Siglufjörður and the nearby fjord. In this way, readers get to know the storyline of the book closely, in addition to which we look into the Folk Music Center and look at the Herring Museum with the book in mind. Weather permitting, sailing will cost extra. Örlygur Kristfinnsson, the forerunner of the Herring Museum, will be our special guide in sailing and hiking outside the fjord.
