Very nice of you, CodeBorg! Very Happy




Just one question, though. What is "sveiks"?


Very Happy

It's Latvian for "hello!" ...

I think you and Merry Andrew are the only people I've met online
who have any experience with Latvians.

A post from way, way back . . .

So your father is Latvian! ... Aha, now I see where you're coming from! The old problem of trying to understand one's parent/s! Oh I know that one well!!!! Confused Very Happy

But just to balance this out a little, let me tell you of my first ever true love ... A Latvian/artist person ... The relationship lasted 6 years & had a huge impact on me ...
How's this for a Latvian?: Romantic, deep thinker, lover of animals, reader of poetry to the beloved (me! Very Happy ), constant giver of gifts, writer of beautiful, thoughtful letters, cooker of fantastic meals for the beloved & friends, & enthusiastic celebrator of "Olga's Day", during which one felt wonderfully priveleged & loved! .... I could go on, but you get my point! Latvians come in all shapes, sizes & varieties ... Just like anyone from any other culture! Very Happy


It just kinda stuck with me, but I wasn't sure if you'd recognize "sveiks".


Did you ever see him again? Do people still celebrate Olga's Day?
Perhaps we should start a thread . . .

Surprised Oh, that was a long way back, indeed, CodeBorg! What a memory you have!

And hey, sveiks to you, too! Very Happy

Did I ever see him again? No. We went our separate ways for years & years & years... Then, a couple of years ago, I found myself wondering what had happened to him & after a number of abortive attempts to make contact, finally tracked P down. (Funny thing, he'd had dreams of trying to talk to me a few times, recently.... Smile ) Anyway, a lot of things had happened - other loves, parenthood & migration to a faraway part of Oz (from Melbourne) ... but there he was, living in some stunning location, absolutely zilch creature comforts & amenities/maximum exposure to the beauty of nature. I had to smile. Some things remain constants. Very Happy

Olga's Day celebrations? Nah. They ended when that relationship with P ended. Very fond memories, they remain. Smile

@CodeBorg,
Surprised

<blink>

It really is you! I'd know that little green critter anywhere! Very Happy

Sveiks, CodeBorg!
What an absolute pleasure it is so see you again after so long.
This has made my day! Smile

So ... where have you been?
What have you been up to?
Tell us everything!

And .... you're not going to vanish in a hurry again, are you?
