Now this looks like fun! I love "The 13th Warrior"!

This was a Viking festival, similar to the many Renaissance fairs and Revolutionary and Civil War enactments throughout the United States. Scandinavians from all over participated, with games and other fun.

Hello Mary these 2 vikings look as if they are getting thoroughly bored with all that raping and pillaging! Nice shot of human emotions. But we need to search out some Puzzled looks for Mira.

Greetings, Amelia

They were contemplating which coat of made-in-India chain mail to buy, Amelia. I stumbled upon this festival near the hostel where I was staying.

Viking re-enacters had gathered from all over Scandinavia, and the entire festival was conducted in English, apparently the most convenient common language. It was great fun to watch the games and contests, and to see everyone, even children, in Viking garb.

I will look for puzzled looks on other galleries. Usually I see them on the faces of my family, having to live with this wild woman. :-))

Greetings, Mary

Merry Viking Christmas Mary!

MaryKnapp on December 17, 2008

Kathy! Long time no see, and I was just thinking the other day I ought to go to your gallery and see what you've been up to.

I'm planning to to NC and TN in late January. Hope to catch some snow.

Merry Christmas to you, Warmly, mary

Tennessee is calling to you!

MaryKnapp on December 17, 2008

It always calls, Kathy. The gas and airfare run-up kept me from answering.

Christmas joy and peace,


MaryKnapp on December 17, 2008

Christian it has been a long time! Thank you so much for your visit and Barbarian greetings.

Merry Christmas from the tropics, Mary

Is it just my site Mary or are you also having difficulties? I'm going to log off, and try again later.

MaryKnapp on December 18, 2008

Yesterday I had an awful time, and for a while all my counters were set to zero, as well as some other sites I visited.

Poor things, this site is growing exponentially, and it's free, with no ads. I wonder how they make money?

Very good one...well done Mary

Merry Christmas from Italy Tom

MaryKnapp on December 18, 2008

Thank you so much Tom.

Merry Christmas to you too!
