Awesome pics. You should be a photographer.

Greetings from Norway

Next month will be nine years since I sent the first letter to Tanya,,
Yes, she was intrigued by that lure in my "Ukraine-Wife-Trap" :-))
taking in all of the "hook, line, and sinker"
And the rest of it, is in the story here,,,

We are still doing great, actually better than ever,,
My lovely wife will be 41 in a couple of months, (me 68*)
but as all women I had relationships with, she is taking good care of herself.
Looking almost the same in this random snapshot from a few days ago,
as she did when I first met with her so many years ago.

Thanks Lily
And I do remember your comment from 2014 also:
"What a beauty! There is something romantic in her looks."

8 year wedding anniversary today, and still some years to go.
Almost 9 years, since I dropped by her place to say hello,
before going to the airport, for my flight home.

Romance, this warming sunshine
revitalizing my mind and body
as Phoenix rising from the ashes
old sorrows buried in optimism
with new challenges in the wings
and grandiose plans in front
arrows of hope, towards the sky

Life is what
If not a dream come through
in the thinking mind

A sliver of light in space
with endless opportunities

rockstar, billionaire, hermit
the universe is yours
to play your game
In the spotlight or not
No One cares

The life to live, before it burns out
Out of nothing a sparkle,,,, then nothing
The passing glimmer, of a shooting star

Summer flashback,,,

North . . . interesting words.

Was that picture taken at Cappadocia in Turkey ?
A beautiful woman is pleasant to look at, but it is easier to live with a pleasant acting one.

wife in bathing suit photo?
check...
most of the photos I can't share, cuz she likes nude sun bathing, and YES, I DO rub sun screen ALL OVER her!

it's a MAN'S life here in Texas, not meant for those who play video games and watch porn all day
cuz, first thing ya gotta do with a little filly like this, is to "break her in"

then after that, she will do whatever YOU WANT...

PS, no easy task, a Ukrainian village girl with a hardbody to match
and 6' 1" tall, same height and build as Gal Godot A.K.A "Wonder Woman"

PS
I'm not sure, but I have possibly been to this spot, about 15 years ago...
is there a nearby pool of water, that has submerged Roman Columns, also covered in the deposited crystals?
right now, Istanbul and Marmaris has a BIG bunch of Russian ex-pats living there
young Russians are EVERYWHERE now,
Tel Aviv is packed with them, every 4th person you pass on the street is speaking Russian
and NONE of them are tourists

Far East of Turkey, Gol Tepi, is too dangerous now...
otherwise, another wild place to explore

if 'ole Trench goes to kitchenev, it'll be interesting to note the number of young female Ukrainian refugees sharing the space and competing for men with the local Moldovan women, who are themselves of two distinct types; village dwellers and city dwellers

Greetings from Norway



One more year,,,,

And "wide reaching" changes ahead,,,
Reorganizing memorabilia of the past,
to recapture some of the paths, through my life

Life is what,
If not a map to explore,,
(In the thinking mind)

Once upon a time-----
 
YOU,, at map point zero,
oblivious to the trek ahead,
the one and only passage
towards your final death,

a million possible paths

From wide and safe with a destiny ahead;
the straight line drawn through the map.
To daring steps up slippery slopes
with unknown rewards, for the adventurous to reap

Your path through the map of your life
comes from playing or not, the cards you are dealt

Still,,, the secret of life, is enjoying the trek
Not feeling satisfied now, because of future goals,
is like celebrating your final destiny; death

Then,,,,
A pleasant phone call some weeks ago,,

He called me,
asked if I was still going strong,
if I could remember 25 years ago,
a young unemployed 15 year old,
worked couple years for me,
with computers and software.
Had borrowed $100 from me, at that time
and wanted to repay his debt now.
And to say thanks, for all he had learned from me.
Then telling me he is now a software millionaire,,

Most of those who worked for me, during my life,,,
were in some ways encouraged to provoke their own comfort zone 
stretching their ambitions beyond what they believed being possible
Starting their own business, or a career unimaginable for them

To the adventurous ones
An incredible "love story" that had part of it roots,
in a movie that rocked me at age 15
Iconic EasyRider from 1969



A year later I had built my own "chopper"
Doing all of it myself, all machining (longer fork legs, foot rests +++),
welding, painting (candy red with silver flakes), stitching the saddle, ++++



A younger friend of mine bought it a year later.
Then dreaming about building choppers for a living.
Many years later when we were going to California,,
he had decided not to return.
So inside the 3 month visa period,,
he had to find a woman with a double garage and marry her.
To be able to stay legally in USA, and start building choppers.
Hopefully in her double garage :-)

I agreed with most others that it was really impossible,
and especially with only $2000 in his pocket.
A slippery slope yes,, still, I thought it was worth a shot.

California proved to be, too expensive,
but there was young man from home, attending flight school in Kansas.
He had an apartment with a room to spare.
Frank found his woman, and married her.
With a double garage and within 3 months.
Great woman,, they are still happily married, with children.
The business was a long and hard journey before succeeding.
30 years later he showed up in a Norwegian TV series,
about entrepreneurs who became millionaires from nothing in USA.

I came to think about this incredible story when Frank dropped by my office
for a long, long, conversation about past and present a couple of weeks ago.

From his first webpage in the nineties.......



Among other memorabilia,
I found this enlarged photo.
"Memories of another life"
(Golden Gate, San Fransisco 1977)
Many decades ago, it covered the wall of our living room.
Me 22, the young girl 16
Driving around for a month with a rental Mustang.
In THE USA, that for me, was:
"the promised land of milk and honey"



At that time she was serving coffee and cleaning in a hardware shop.
When we split 10 years later, she was,
CEO of large company, a well known local politician,
and European TopFuel drag race record holder.
Many years later, voted "Business Woman of the Year" in Norway

To be continued..........
