    #54... Been there John done that in Lulea and in Oxelosund. Had Xmas also in Oxelosund. With a German and a Swedish married couple., The Germans father was ex SS, probably living the life of Reilly in South America at the time. Am sure if he had any frozen balls he would have hung them on the Xmas tree he was drunk enough. One wonders sometimes on all the characters one meets in a lifetime how they fared throughout their life spans. You don't have to be a celebrity to have a past life, in fact those who do and write about think most of them are very humdrum. JWS
