Ljubljana Rudnik, March 9


39309. Sinja and Janez live in the house on the right - view from the slope. Jože parked his car at the construction site of a new house close to the hilltop, to see better where Sinja's home might be. He waited at the roadside where the author, who also lost his way, met him. After a brief consultation of the map on his phone he identified the house and suggested that they both leave the cars where they are and continue downhill on foot. It was a bit muddy and slippery but still a nice stroll/glide (Jože is seen lower left).



39313. Janez, Sinja and their eldest grandson Juš with a 1949 oil on paper by Mišo's father, also a birthday present



39314. View of the house from the access road



39316. Boja and Roža, Sinja's mother



39315. Radojka is joining us again, after she departed to console ...



39317. ... Astra, the Golob family she-hound, who had to be kept away not to interfere with the party (she likes to jump on people like most dogs do).



Naša draga Sinja
'ma prav poseben dar,
tako rada nam odgrinja
preljubih srečanj žar.

(A verse for the birthday girl by the author)
