and peculiar oldies are thrown out of the active society in Norway today. Oldies are peculiar if they want to do what they always have done, work. We are not welcome as a working force!
The labour party, it must have been their idea to forbid oldies based on age, to do anything.
Who can continue to live without doing something?
This old and broken down silo in Esebotn must be the perfect place to throw
a lot of oldies, it´s empty inside and there are a lot of space here!
Even the old and promising might find something to do ... how to get out?
Please, don´t tell anyone, it could become reality and till now it´s a secret.

is the mountaintop,
to the right but
you cannot se it 
ca. 1400 meters above sea level
a few hundred meters from 
where the photo is taken, 
behind me
in the bottom of the photo
is the remaining top
of a silo
broken down by ice and
rocks more times and
there I have been
The tagging
is artwork in the most
anyone can dream of
and this coming summer
the sheep will be able to 
enjoy it!

is the name of the end
in a way. Understand me right
it is not my end but
the end of the Esefjord where
the land rises and it rises up
into mountains more than
a 1000 meters!
It is the most amazing
surroundings with peaks all around
this idyllic path just now
in it´s spring colours.
I was there with HipHip,
my dog today and who enjoyed
it the most, were both of us.
The white spots in top of the photo
are snowpatches up in the
mountainside, melting and small
streams of running water are
all around some tiny and
some growing
bigger and bigger on the
way down and into the fjord.

It´s difficult
not to  think "oh shit "when 
some of the days are heavy.
The good thing is that
you can get rid of the weight 
by making it into a smelly 
joke. Don´t make the smell 
yourself, I am thinking about 
the smelly stuff that comes 
out behind ..., not that but 
whatever you recieve
 from others, put the shit on 
paper and crush it with a 
pensil! This will make you
 smile the rest of the day 
and the next day 
and the next and ...

minus the oldest, met with lawyers and all of us wanted to gain the most ... .
As always there were 3 against 1 and the 1 is me! We all have dogs, the only thing we have in common are the dogs. The 3 sisters have lovely shooting dogs and I have lurker, a lurkerterrier but not the one on the painting.
As expected the great lawyer from Larvik, Steinar Sørlie was there. He wanted to grab my hand, polite he is but I denied to shake it. Who shake hands with the one who tried to rob you from your liberty?
He and my sisters tried twice and I told him why he had to keep his hand to himself.
Then he accused me for being naughty, naughty before and naughty now!
This is in norwegian:
Steinar Sørlie, norgesmester i Dobbeltrepresentasjon sier til meg at jeg er uforskammet?
Vel, vel er jeg uforskammet så er han en kjeltring og med Advokatforeningens velsignelse får han fortsette sine kjeltringstreker. All ære til Advokatforeningen og Steinar Sørlie!!!

The blogg has had a lot of visitors from 8 countries during the few hours today. Thank you to you all, apart from my sisters offsping, Ellen´s two sons and the daughter are like their parents, all named Knap and no friends of mine.

Later, the nett connection behaves as there are unvelcome visitors so I´ll leave it for a while ...

I met my posh sisters

as a mistress but just as a friend of their posh family.

and I tagging along and making the streets of Balestrand an artscene! Balejazz is at it´s peak and the village are boiling by music and the art we have done.
The avKnap project has stated to be what I had hoped for and more. A main newspaper has been here and so has another newspaper, Bergens Tidene on the west coast. The drains in the streets are a gorgeous place to do artwork, as it becomes art around art. Sogn Avis, the local newspaper´s Eirik, the journalist has been here as well!
The bunch, four 14 years old guys are my good friends and thanks to them it all went smooth, lucky me that has some true friends ...
