Our New Neighborhood Pub


One of our neighbors built his own pub. Kjell.  Kjell came to our rescue with his big machinery,  when we had a terrible storm a few years back that took most of our trees out front. They don’t live very far away,  so in true country Swedish style, we walked to the new pub.

When we arrived, it was absolutely beautiful. We spent a wonderful Spring evening enjoying all of our closest neighbors. We lucked out with nice weather to be able to sit outside and enjoy friends.

When I said we lucked on the weather, that didn't mean sunshine and warmth of Spring. As with every Swedish Spring, we were cold
