A Gold Nugget

Recently I came across a picture that brought great memories.  It is a picture of me at age 7 on a piggie-back ride on my Swedish half-brother's back. Jan (pronounced Yan) must have been about 25 at the time.  The picture made me smile.  I thought I would share the good memory with Jan.  Thanks to technology I took a photo of the photo and sent it electronically to him.

His response was so heart warming! He said, "You were a real GULLKLIMP. A gold nugget!  This is an expression in Swedish that means a real nice, wonderful, happy kid."

Now when I look at the picture I get two good feelings, the initial memory and his sweet comment.
