We learned Norwegian. My children grew
into teenagers and had first real girlfriends. My daughter being
younger learned the language perfectly. Many of the best and the
most difficult things happened to my family here. 1960 saw everyone
of us having major surguries. Cass worked on F-4's for the Norwegian
Marines taught my boys scouting in
the oldest way, hikes up mountain sides on skiis, camping in harsh
rain in the high plains in floorless tents, building fires to
cook many miles from civilization. It was thus. We became much
richer as a family. Our tours of the continent were fabulous.
All of my children have gone back to visit.
Our Norwegian friends were wonderful
people as were our American friendships developed there.
