It is now 35 years that I met Terje and his young family. I was young too --- 25 years. I was working as a stage technician and Terje was a caretaker for several buildings in town, one of them being the theatre shop.
Being completely new in town AND in Norway I truly appreciated the way this family offered their friendship. By the way you can read about my time in Norway and all the crazy things happening there here and here and here and here and here. (click on the white links)
Terje and his wife also became our Best Man/Maid of honour at our wedding in 1987.
Both have been invited to several family gatherings in Germany and we always enjoyed each others company. Looking back at those 35 past years these folks are our best friends and we sure felt sorry when we left them behind in Norway.
Terje and his wife have been visiting us in Canada, and Terje also came to see us in Holtville, CA.
Today we have received word that they will be coming over to Canada again to be with us when we celebrate 25 years of marriage, my 60th birthday and being 10 years in Canada. Three good reasons to come and experience Campobello Island.
We will be sure to have a worthy sightseeing program ready for them.
