Here, There, Everywhere

When it's your turn to host Sunday dinner and your parents have just returned from a trip to Norway, Iceland, Greenland, the Shetland Islands, and Nova Scotia ... they show up to your door as Viking Man and Viking Woman.

They also come bearing gifts: bottled water from the Greenland Ice Cap (the purest natural drinking water in the world) ...

and petrified wood from Sydney, Nova Scotia.

They also show you their certificates for having sailed through the Arctic Circle.

After lunch and just thirty minutes after they left, my friend who was visiting HER parents sent me the following text: The Viking is here ...

and here was my response: They're EVERYWHERE! They were just HERE!

In fact, here's another sighting ...

And just in case you're wondering if my parents know how to have fun, allow me to present the following ...

Mad Hatter Dinner, Myrtle Beach, SC

New Year's Eve family cruise to Cozumel, Mexico

Somewhere in Chile, South America

Dancing in Argentina

I want to be them when I grow up.

P. S. I also have a video of Timothy and Nonna dancing the floss. It's a GREAT video, but I'm not sharing it. Whereas Nonna wouldn't mind in the least, Timothy would ;-)

We make a very handsome couple anywhere in the World. You should post that silly dance; Timothy will get over it. Love, Nonno
