Simba was a stray living behind a friend’s house, and Sanna asked me to catch him and get him a checkup and in condition for her, so she could adopt him. Simba was supposed to be a companion to Boo, the famous Rottweiler. Simba was a tough but sweet cat.

2004 – visit to cousin Juha and the family’s old house in middle Finland. Juha (2nd from left) writes: The house is called Kivikko, owned by the Stenmans. Could it not be more suitable, because Stenman translates as Stone Man and Kivikko refers to Stone House. It was built by our great grandfather David for a neighbour around 1890.
