A little boy …

… has grown a lot! Wow! Today he celebrates his 70th birthday!

Even though our Husse (cat’s daddy in Swedish) has lived in Sweden over 50 years his heart still beats for his favourite Finnish ice hockey team Oulun Kärpät. So far the season is going better than well for his team! Of course, we are always cheering this team, too!

Husse and Matte (Mervi) used to visit Berlin every December and always  visited the zoo despita of the weather. Well, they both really love polar bears ….

Zur Kneipe is Husse’s favourite restaurant/pub in Berlin. Because he couldn’t visit it this year we decided to arrange a virtual birthday party there anyway. He deserves it since he’s more concerned of our well being than his own pleasure!

We are sure Husse chose this table because there are photos of horses on the wall. 🙂 He likes to place bets on trotting and he even wins sometimes! 🙂 We wish him best of luck with the horses!

Our Husse is the Chef in our kitchen so, naturally, he checks the food very thoroughly. This time it was to his satisfaction …. and the portions were big enough, too!!

Words of wisdom! One schnaps is nothing, two are medicine!

After some schnaps – mind you, for medical purposes – it feels like there were fireworks around. Even the waiter looks a bit different than usual. 🙂

At home we have decorated our Christmas tree ….

…. and as you can guess our Matte helped us!

We can’t bake so we bought a chocolate cake for you – and a cream cake for us because chocolate isn’t good for us. However, it was a bit difficult not to quality control even this cake …..

We have also had a chat with Santa Claus and he promised to bring you lots of gifts. We assured him that you’ve been a good boy during the year and that you’ve taken good care of us. We are demanding cats but you’re doing a good job as our butler!

Mimmi: Nalle, you must promise Husse to stop your singing so early in the morning!

Nalle: I’ll do my best but what can I do? Every morning I feel that the show must go on ….

  7. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR VESA!
    I wish you a happy day with a loving and cheerful wife, purring cats that spared to sing early in the morning – probably except for a soft birthday song, a nice little party, some good friends to celebrate you and everything you desire for yourself!
    Best wishes too for the coming year of age: health, happiness, well being – and some great victories of your favourite Finnish ice hockey team Oulun Kärpät!

    Hugs

  14. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR VESA,

    ich möchte es nicht versäumen, unserem Vesa alles Gute zum runden Geburtstag zu wünschen. Lieber Vesa, ich wünsche Dir alles Gute, Glück, Zufriedenheit und ganz viel Gesundheit. Ich hoffe, Du hattest einen schönen Tag mit Deiner lieben Frau Mervi und den Samtpfoten Mimmi und Nalle.

    An einige Fotos hier kann ich mich noch sehr gut erinnern. Vor allem an das eine Jahr wo es sehr viel Schnee gab. Als wir aus dem Zoo-Restaurant in Richtung Ausgang gingen, gab es einen regelrechten Schneesturm. Da habe ich Euch und Teddybärenmutti- und Vati noch von hinten fotografiert.
    Leider konntet Ihr ja die letzten Jahre aus gesundheitlichen Gründen nicht mehr nach Berlin kommen. Wir haben aber immer an Euch gedacht. Vielleicht klappt es ja doch noch mal irgendwann.
    Ich hoffe auch, dass es Teddybärenmutti bald wieder besser geht.

    Ich wünsche Euch und allen Lesern und Akteuren von KWM ein schönes, friedliches und gesundes Weihnachtsfest.

    Ich werde mich jetzt wieder öfter zu Wort melden. Ab und zu braucht man einfach mal eine kleine Auszeit, auch weil die Gesundheit nicht so mitspielt.

    Liebe Grüße aus Bärlin
    Monika

  15. Dear Vesa and Mervi
    I waited till I was in the Library to comment here as I wanted to enjoy the full pictures in this article.
    In the early days I did not go to Berlin in the Winter, only in 2009 to 2011. They were magical times and we have all been on this journey together. Sisu!
