The trip of my life to Liverpool started on Thursday July 28th - Plane journey with City-Hopper Trondheim-Amsterdam-Liverpool was a smooth, fast and easy way of travelling - will go the same way next time.
Russell and June from Liverpool, and Kristin from California met me at the airport. Did I deserve all this hospitality?
On our drive from the airport to my Ibis hotel, Russell and June had arranged a little visit to the eldest of the Stene line in Liverpool, Clifford. he is grandnephew of my great-great-grandfather Ole Johnsen Stene.
What a dear, old man, with all his brain and senses "intact", and in addition - a lady's man. He told about his time in RAF during the war, we discussed TV programmes, soaps as well as news and Foyle's War.

We even had a little sing song with "You are my Sunshine...." and the like.
