A little bit of home.

B.B.Q - Denmark style...

It is really so good to stay here with Brett & Signe and see them in their daily " sphere ". For all those years Bob and Brett have been living on different continents and really never had the chance to " Hang out " at each others' houses. Now that we live in Austria, Bob and I are catching up on hanging out with his big brother!

Yesterday Brett phoned a lot of his friends for an impromptu B.B.Q. at his house. Even on a workday ten of his friends came to meet us. Everyone brought a salad or something and soon we had a typical B.B.Q.,with the men outside " tending " to the fire and the ladies inside in the kitchen to " prepare ", but really to have a good chance to catch up on news,happenings and possible a bit of grumble about their husbands' habits...

The most amazing thing happened when we had all eaten. There was, of course, a mountain of dishes and I was gearing myself up to sort them out, when I happenend to glance up and look through the kitchen window. All the men, with Brett in the lead, were standing over and next to the sink washing and clearing up! These wives are geniuses....I must still find out if this only happens here in Denmark or if it is an European trait....

Despite not being allowed to wash the dishes, I had the most wonderful time and it was so fabulous to see and meet such a nice group of friends.

I will post pictures when we home again on Friday, so please come and check out these few blog pages again.
