40th Birthday Report: Now With Added Pictures

I won’t be adding another full report here but I will include a bunch of pictures, and caption them.

Pictures provided by the inestimable dreameling, and hilarious photoshops by DJ Kalakukkos. He didn’t want to appear online, so out of respect and long friendship, and also full compliance with GDPR regulations, we offer this compromise.

01yard

It was a beautiful day and the yard looked glorious.

02yard (2)

The entrance to Bar Äijä’s and the main house was also set up to receive visitors. And, later in the evening, billions and billions of mosquitoes.

02yard3

Cheap, nasty tent purchased at hardware store. Otherwise not bad, but the bolt-holes were badly drilled so bolting it together was a bitch.

03tent

The manual (yes, I read it) clearly said “do not assemble while children are present” but no matter how many times I told them to fuck off, they would not fuck off.

04deer1

Vuta and Mrs. Hatboy and Mrs. Vuta all had a hand in the preparation of the deer. Well done to all concerned.

05deer1-1

It was absolutely delicious.

06deer2

I believe Heikki righteously stuffed himself. Although the six or seven “very Russian” White Russians he had me make for him probably didn’t help.

09marleena

Marleena, Mr. Marleena, and Jarmo were also in attendance, and quickly formed a solid (ex-)Lionbrides table.

08photoshopped

Anna was there, and also DJ Not Appearing In This Blog.

08flag

*patriotic tear*

07andy-toop

Manly McManlyperson with drink and offspring. Mercedes unrelated.

15bar

The bar did steady business but wasn’t particularly rushed. With the barkeep only on part-time duty, everyone was lost and didn’t know how to get drinks. Which is weird. But it got most of them out of the door by one in the morning so I’m not complaining.

15barkeep

“Orange juice? Is it breakfast time already?”

16dispenser

Another of my fabulous gifts, the new Bar Äijä’s drinks dispenser with Hindle family crest. I will rhapsodise more about this in an additional post, I think.

13shopped

More aggravated photoshoppery by DJ Kalakukkos.

12stuffed

Mr. Fahrenheit once again caught on camera stuffing way too much of something into his mouth at once.

11juhodreameling

Tupakka and dreameling

10bros

dreameling and Fahrenheit. I think I posted this before but it’s too good not to post again.

10goths

The kids’ playground is overrun.

15shopped

DJ Kalakukkos shows off his hat. So does Pia.

14bar

The bar, from an angle I have never seen it before and consequently found quite disorienting. Potato present.

I will, given a chance to take a couple more pictures, make a third separate bonus post about the lovely gifts I received from everyone. But for now, this is what I have time for.
