New week, new book

As I visited Jonkoping during the weekend I met with a friend from whom I use to buy or borrow books, this time he lent me William McIlvanney’s Laidlaw from 1977. The book is set in Glasgow and resolves around detective Laidlaw.

I’ll get to you concerning the book. Now I am back in Tryserum to finish the survey I started last week after a few days in Vasterlosa parish, some miles southwest of Linkoping.

    I recently learned that the rampant lion on the Stroh’s beer can is from the Kyrburg Castle in Germany. That lead me to your web sight. Any pictures of the original rampant lion still there???

      Hi Randy,

      and welcome to Testimony of the spade, though I am fond of beverages and the purpose with that particular trip was to buy and drink wine from Nahe, Mosel and Rheine this was news to me. If I’d known I’d taken a picture, I’ve looked at all pictures from Kyrburg and I’m sorry to say that the lion wasn’t on any of them. Stroh beer isn’t available in Sweden but I will try it on my next visit to the US.

      Best wishes

      Ps. I edited your contact details as I wasn’t sure if you wanted them displayed on the web. Ds.
