Some of the stories are stupid, funny, unbelievable, and idiotic. No matter what the stories are, I hope you can "read between the lines" and get a sense of the thinking and events as they occurred. If you are a Dane, you will recognize truth stretching to get a little laugh. If you don't have this DNA, you might have suffered a little with the exaggerations, but I hope you have at least smiled. Maybe you will even join the Scandinavian community by adopting the words, "Uff Da!".
I like satire and parody in stories. Because of this, some names of people or places mentioned in my stories are fictional. Any use of real names is accidental and coincidental or did I use real names on purpose?
My children have told me I have too much time on my hands to make up and write stories. They are right, so remember this is a book to kill time for those who like it better dead.
