Falk


The maternity ward at Sykeland Hønsehus was built in 1926. They squeezed it in right between the church and the graveyard. It seemed like a good idea to keep the circle of life as tight as possible.


We check in at a quarter to eleven and Monica the midwife tells us this may take awhile. From the cemetery below, hundreds of candles flicker in the wind; a stark reminder of the seriousness of the enterprise. Funny how these moments in life always bring out the... Hey, isn't that oxygen tank in the parking lot a bit of a fire hazard?!


Suddenly everything happens very quickly, and an hour and a half later we have a son.


Great. Another mouth to feed.


Let's see what we've caught here: Yes, it's definitely an ill-tempered boy.


Let's get him out of that cosy aquarium and into the bed.


Sweet Jesus, he takes up a lot of room. Move over, will you?


Let's have a closer look... OH MY GOD HE'S A PIRATE!!!


But look how happy he makes us!
(I stole this picture from my dad.)


We'll name him Falk. Let's wrap him in the blanket that Sara knitted (or knat, or whatever) and take him back to HQ so he can stay up all night drinking, just like his parents.


And another thing: Now that I have a spare, I can finally realize my long-time ambition and sell this delinquent to the gypsies.

Better hurry up and sell him before the archers get him.

Make sure you keep that hair when you sell him and maybe the hat too. Heck, if they're included, I might have a buyer right now.

Your baby is adorable. He'll be pushing you around in no time. First he takes the bed, then HQ. Post while you can.

I would have called him Hawkeye. But Falk is okay.

Falk is a very goodlooking baby! Congrats! Did any of you read Sølvpilen?

Sølvpilen, sigh ... But I guess all that is left now is business.

I'm sure if this child was a girl, she would be called Sølvpilen.


Anyway, welcome to the party, Falk!

Månestråle was my sister`s ultimate heroine. I think I preferred Sølvpilen, although Falk was quite the dandy with the hairdoo and that. Yes those were the days... Do they still publish this?
