The Sun Is Back!

Postby Ancient Mariner » Mon Apr 07, 2014 2:51 pm

At least it is in Rjukan, the little town at the bottom of the narrow valley where the sun is gone for months of the year. This the town world famous for erecting a giant, computer controlled mirror at the top of a mountain to reflect the sun's rays to the city square.
This Saturday they celebrated the Return of the Sun Fest, and yee and haw how the sun co-operated.

This be Old Mama Viking with Little Viking and Little Viking Sister enjoying themselves.

And here's Old Papa Viking standing in.

To celebrate the Sun one needs a band to play Samba, this be it.

Some dressed up as beer bottles, note empty beer case, asume full fake bottles.

Cold? What do you mean, cold?

And some Americana for our brethren across the pond.

Not totally empty, there's a bored, cold, hungry, pissed off Little Viking inside. :evil:

The resemblance between you and various Avatar sculptures (available at other fora) is slightly disturbing.

Not in a bad way, but still...

No.

Please re-read my comment...bold added for emphasis.

The wooden block head is equally representative. 8-)

In that case, I'm confused and curious. Which fora and sculptures?

Dude...you have two or three USERID's over there...The AM.... The REAL AM...

I'm thinking I very recently saw a wooden sculpture on one of them and the melon on the other...I saw it reading an ITS thread or something.
