An Addendum

In the last blog post, my theme was great floats coming to me through friendships. In that post is a photo, and brief history of a beautiful amber Japanese Star with Kanji in the star. I could not get over the fact that my good friend-Olaf in Germany-found the float in Europe. Today, I received an email from Olaf. I thought you might enjoy reading what Olaf had to say about that float:

Thank you for the kindly words over me in your blog. I only want to
say something obout the amber "Asian" float. This float I got a long
time ago in change from Stu Farnsworth.
It was a very nice float, but my favorites are bottles and so I brought
this float to you. I think it is better in your collection.

Thank you Olaf for your continued kindness and frienship to me.

    Sorry about your problem sending to me, but it would be very easy for you to post your new information about Torvald Stranne floats right here on a comment. It would be great if you were to do so.
