    That is a very attractive hair style on Marian. And how wonderful that you gave Matti a home, she looks sweet and a lot like my recently adopted Annie. Tigers rule! 🙂

      Thank you! Very sweet and affirming words. Adopted cats are the best. We got our last two dogs from the same shelter: beagle Toby, who sadly did not make it back to LI, dying of kidney failure at 13 just before we left Gilmanton NH, and Chihuahua Penny who turned 9 this past summer..She and Matti are doing very well together!

  2. Lovely lady with a very attractive haircut. 🙂 I think Matti has found a perfect home with two loving people and their other four-legged friend, Penny. Hope 2020 is a good one for all four of you.

    Dear Peter,
    Matti is a typical Finnish name. And the hairstyle and that shirt look Scandinavian as well. Is there a connection?
    Hygge really fits!

      Marian and I lived in Århus, DK for four years (69-73) before we came to the USA. Many happy memories (and still some furniture!) from those years. I was at Århus Universitet at a new Biofysisk Institut. Marian worked at Universitets Boghandel dealing with their English language communications. We traveled/camped through Sweden and Norway, so we still feel a strong affiliation for all things Nordic. So Marian’s hair, shirt, and cat all have their Norsk roots! Hygge is still part of our culture! Thanks for noticing! Best wishes to you all in chilly East Anglia!
