STF postcard no 35 – OLD FARM IN HIMLE
An early day in the spring 2014, beautiful but very cold, Elisabeth and I took another trip to Halland doing one more of our visits in the STF-project. We went to Gurli and Bertil Gunnarsson, parents in law to Helene, my cousin Bo-Göran’s daughter. They, had I learned, knew exactly which farm it was on this STF-postcard. It is written about this farm in the book over Spannarp and they knew the owner, Gösta Andersson, very well.
Gurli and Bertil showed us the way to Kärragård where Gösta met up. Only one of the houses of the former quad is still there today. Bertil also told us that it was Ester Svensson, cousin to Bertils father, Johan Andersson, who was standing in front of the houses.
Bertil, Gurli, me and Gösta
Bertil and Gurlis son, Roger, cultivate the farm “Snickers” in Tvååker togehter with Helene. A farm cultivated in the same family for 15 generations.
You shiver when you think of this, don’t you?
