^^^^ LOVE that old time norsky music! Quite a propos!

Question: What the heck is that hole in the bottom corner of the dør før?
So the røyskatt can come in and eat the mices?

I screwed up by truthfully answering La Femme’s question
“Are there mosquitoes in Norway?” (she HATES ‘em!)
“Uh, only in Finnskogen and Finnmark, mostly.”
Hopefully it will be windy in Varangerhalvøyen.
No amount of wind will help in Finnskogen, ikke sant? 😬

At Varangerhalvøya nothing but the wind or a net covering your head will help you. At Finnskogen the mosquitos have for some reason unknown been few the last two years, but the knot is in a part of the summer ready to eat you alive in the evenings unless the wind blows. A couple of years ago I had to work late outside and my face ended up looking like a paprika covered pizza.

hehe... norsky music is the best...

No confirmation of my weasel hole theory? I don’t much like mice indoors,
but I’m in the Frank Zappa camp as far as indoors weasels are concerned.

Upon the hole. Mice don't like cats... I have never seen them deal with weasels...

Jeg tror the hole is too small for most cats.
That’s my theory, and I’m sticking to it! 🤓

Norwegian cats from the woods are still slim...

"Kun Mun Kultani Tulisi"
This poem is probably the most translated Finnish poem. In 1850's C.G. Zetterqvist wanted to do linguistic research, and picked this poem as his material. He had it translated to Latin, French and German, and sent the translations to 1400 people all around the world, asking them to translate it into their own language or dialect. As a result he got over 600 translations from 467 people - and so the poem has been translated, among other languages, to Arabian, Chinese, Basque, Tahitian, Old Norse, and Moksha.
