I want seafood, mama…

Ok, I'm back. Tempting to let the images speak for themselves.

Here's a Norwegian road sign, linking to the Silda Jazz website. Regret did not see real elk, despite impromptu seven-hour bus journey through mountains to alternative airport when our flight home was cancelled. Fallow deer, though, I think it was, and what might have been a kestrel. Also much herring (deceased).


I met up with some acquaintances from way back, the ever-chipper Jive Aces, who really know how to put on a show. Someone thought it would be a good idea to take a photo.
We're the ones not in yellow.

I'll return to wine and related matters when I'm fully recovered from the rigours of the trip back to Ireland. However, here's a link to the site of the Norwegian wine monopoly, which "has had an exciting and engrossing history".

    I was thinking groovy green but that’s more for alliteration purposes. How about the same style suits but in different day-glo colours? Blue, red, orange and purple. I wanted to go to my grads in an orange suit like Dumb and Dumber but for some reason nobody would go along with it…

    Upstage George? Not even in full Rocky Horror drag, I couldn’t! But if the R40s did get suits, what colour would the public like to see, do you think?

    In all fairness Julian, the rusty orange suit is striking enough, you’d be upstaging George if you wore one of them yellow suits!

  • Pure Cork Boy
    Jesus, it’s frightening to think that you can actually get yellow suits…

    And now I know exactly where! One of the reasons jazzers wear shades.
