Never a dull moment

HOW WAS YOUR WEEKEND? 

My grandfather was a captain. Once he wrote a letter to his wife, my grandmother, and told her that there had been a storm and that they’d rescued a ship in need. The first shot with the harpoon was a hit and they could tow the boat back to a safe harbour. Our journey on Saturday wasn’t as dramatic, but a friend had some trouble with the engine so we towed him to a new spot. That’s the thing about living on the canal; when someone asks for help, you help.

HVA GJORDE DU I HELGEN? 

Farfaren min var kaptein. I et brev hjem til farmor forteller han at det har vært storm og at de har reddet et skip i nød. Det første skuddet med harpunen traff og de tauet båten til en sikker havn. Turen vår på lørdag var ikke like dramatisk, men en venn fikk trøbbel med motoren, så vi tauet ham til et nytt sted. Det er sånn det er på kanalen; når noen ber om hjelp, hjelper man.
