Kongelige hukommelser ...Royal Memories

Disse to billeder hænges i vores dagligstue. Jeg fandt dem i kælderen sidste sommer og da jeg viste dem til Mads, fortalt han mig hans "kongelig historie".

These two pictures hang in our living room. I found them in the basement last summer and when I showed them to Mads, he told me his "royal story".
Efter han var færdig med højskole, tilsluttede Mads det danske hær. Han havde mange oplevelser imens har var i hæren, men hans mest speciel oplevelse var de 2 uger at hans gruppe havde kongelig vagtpost for Dronning Ingrid. Hun boede i det danske sommerbolig i Gråsten og Mads havde privilegiet at stå vagt for hende. Vi kørte til slottet i Gråsten i lørdags på vejen hjem fra Tyskland. Det var en speciel tid for Mads at returnerere her efter 20 år!

After he was finished with high school, Mads joined the Danish army. He had many experiences while he was in the army, but he most special experience was thetwo weeks that his group had royal guard for Queen Ingrig. She was living at the Danish summer residence in Gråsten and Mads had the privilege to stand guard for her. We drove to the castle in Gråsten on Saturday along our way home from Germany. It was a special time for Mads to return here after 20 years!

I can't tell from the picture, which one is Mads?

Okay, never mind. I clicked on the picture and zoomed in and now I can tell. He's the one second from the left, right?

Yes - The Road is a must. Brilliant, but difficult to read. I can also recommend No Country for Old Men, which is good too and a little easier to read.

Mads and Kelli said...
