The old health resort.
It is not the brightest of days here, in fact it is very dreary and gloomy here. The clouds are hanging low and it drizzles every now and again. We were supposed to have some heavy showers but thankfully those have missed this village. There will be no improvement in the weather today but they do still predict some sunshine for tomorrow after noon.
Yesterday I drove to Falköping after I had been at the garage to get some things I wanted for the weekend and I was looking after a grocery store the garage owner told me about because even if Falköping is a tiny town the traffic is murderous and it is hard to find any parking spaces. I missed it yesterday but realised when I came home that I needed to find it. I had an email in my computer telling me a package was waiting for me there. I can’t understand why but all other delivery services use another store than this one.
The package would stay there for two weeks but I thought it best to go there this morning. I thought that the store, like all other stores would open up at 9 am but I thought wrong, they didn’t open until 10 🙂 Thankfully I had brought my camera so I drove to the old health resort on the mountain and took some photos to show here. It is mostly building because I didn’t want to go to the top of the mountain where they have a tiny zoo and a beautiful walking area. I was still a bit early when I came back to the car so I went to a petrol station and filled up my car, it turns out that the petrol price was 1/9 of an US dollar lower there than in the village where I usually fill up with petrol.
I went to the store and picked up the package and yes it is an old camera 🙂 🙂 I was thinking the other week that I have no old-time Nikon and there is one that usually is very cheap because for some reason people rather buy the later versions even if this one is really good. It is a Nikon F-401s (in the US 4004s). It is seen as a beginners camera and the first one that Nikon tried autofocus but it can be handled fully manually too. I already had a lens I could use so this one costed around 10 US dollars. I’ve already started to use it and so far I like it a lot. But now I feel that I really don’t need any more cameras 🙂 🙂
We met a neighbor when we went out walking after I had come back from Falköping and he told me that earlier this week he had heard Sune barking like crazy and he just wouldn’t stop. So he walked down to the dog yard and found a terrified Sune with his hair standing straight up. Sune calmed down when my neighbor started talking to him and suddenly he went down the hole they have digged leading into the garage and stayed there quiet 🙂 Wer are now both wondering what could have scared him so much because my neighbor couldn’t see anything.
He finds both moose and wild hog interesting so we doubt that any of those had been close but it could be either the lynx which pass here every now and again or perhaps the wolves have come back? I don’t worry about the lynx, they’ll rather run that try to fight with a dog but I will keep my eyes open to see if I can see any tracks from wolves. I doubt a wolf would try to get in to the dogyard and if it did it wouldn’t be able to get through that small hole into the garage, that would also be a very dangerous thing to do for the wolf because it would not know what would meet it inside the garage, the risk would just be too great. I’ll keep my eyes open though.
It is time for a pot of tea and perhaps something little to eat. They are showing NCIS Los Angeles on channel six right now but I lost interest when they for the zillionth time found a muslim terrorist organisation, I mean there must be some other guys they can fight at least once in a while 🙂
Have a great day!
