Tervetuloa tiistaiselle suomi-sivullemme
Welcome to Our Tuesday Finland Page
I offer you today another Video of Finland. The music is not as good as last week. But there are pictures of the cities as well as the country.
Phrase of the day:
Käyhän että tuon kannettavani saunaan?
Is it OK if I bring my laptop in the sauna?

A very good day today. My breathing was better. From 9:00 till 12:00 we worked in the new house basement. My grandson Alex with a little help from his brothers and very little help from his grandfather put together a large wooden shelf to put books on. We went through several boxes. In the afternoon they played computer games until the cousins came then they went out and threw water balloons at each other. My son filled the balloons for them. Now he and his wife and children are leaving for Florida and we have his dog. The two dogs are enjoying each other as much as the cousins did. Tomorrow the plumber comes and the guy who is digging out the space for our pool. It will be a busy day. I need a breathing treatment.
