|My beautiful cousin Gro Lene with her hunk of a husband|
The above photo is my cousin Gro Lene in her Norwegian folk costume, or bunad. Isn't she lovely? She tells me her costume is from Telemark where her mother's family is from. Beautiful!
(Remember the World War II movie, "The Heroes of Telemark"? Yes, that Telemark.)
Her husband is also wearing a folk costume. I think he's quite handsome in it! Well, he's a nice looking man however you dress him. I love my cousin. I feel sad we haven't seen each other for umpteen years.
They were expecting guests after the parade:

That made me think of my friends and our pending Memorial Day celebration. As I looked at this table, I thought of our usual paper plates and plastic cups, forks and knives.
I think we Americans may have lost something in translation! What do you think?
