When your mom met me I was hanging out with the homeless. She felt bad for me and since she herself was so poor that she could almost have robbed somebody, she hung this sign over her door saying that travelers with many checks were welcome. That is how we made friends, but I kept staying in my car because I worried about my travelers checks.
Sometimes when she felt I got too lonely in my car, she came down to play in it. That way I didn't feel so sad and lonely. She was always good at cheering me up.
Since I kept staying in my car she would have her house
full of pictures of me.
Another reason I fled down into my car all the time was
that she was always doing weird exercises so I couldn't sleep there.
It took me a very long time before I invited my
family over to meet your mom.
This picture I took on the day your mom's cat Helga
graduated and received its diploma for being the first cat to be actually
sitting on a human toilet seat.
When Helga had become toilet trained we were ready to move up in the world. Raymond said: "Come and stay in my house." It was nice for all of us to move up there, but Raymond quickly discovered that Helga was not doing much better than me when it came to cleanliness. Your mom didn't know what to do and is a little depressed about it as you see here.
When Raymond saw how sad she was, he
gave her roses and said: "Ok, since Jacob and Helga are not "clean" we will
just have to get an outhouse for them."
Even though she does noting
but write e-mails all day long, she gets so hungry that already before noon she
usually orders pizza or Ethiopian food to be delivered.
But even though she sometimes can be a witch like that, she has always been so much fun that I bear over with her. Don't you think her hair here looks just like witch hair?
And I know that you think she is a lot of fun too, Eva.
Look how she took you out dancing from the very beginning. Can you see
yourself in this picture with Rya?
And here you learn very early in life to sing. If you grow up as a good entertainer you now know where you had it all from.
Christina is a true gift to the world and therefore has very, very many
friends. I think she will always be my friend just as you now will, Eva.
Christina has so many wonderful talents - just look on these pages how she
trained me as a graphic designer..... (I hope I am doing a bit
better than what came out of her toilet training).
Here you see an example of Chris - the people mover and entertainer. Yes, she is constantly changing hats. On that particular day she was thinking of joining the marines to go and fight for freedom and liberty. But I know she has second thoughts today on your birthday. For right this moment as you read these lines, you should just have come back inside from the huge worldwide demonstrations against war. Isn't it fun that we were doing something together today. For I was out demonstrating here in Copenhagen.
So actually you went out with your uncle Jacob today to give uncle Sam the finger. That is because if we get war we cannot really enjoy our birthday cakes so well. Even your moms strawberry shortcakes might taste strange then.
