Happy Birthday, Jarkko!!

I believe August 22 (it is 2 am in Finland if my calculations are correct) is our leader's birthday.

Happy birthday, Jarkko!

May your day be filled with many blessings and many, many happy returns...and lots of cake! Thanks for all the little and big things you do for us.

Happy Birthday!
Thanks for the friendship, the laughs, the fun, everything...

The photo above was sent to me by our birthday boy himself a while ago, with the caption "View From Our Summer Cottage". (I'm sure I can see Jarkko reading his book while posing for the photo, but I'm only guessing it's Eija on the left... Or was she taking the picture?)

Relax on this joyful day, the last birthday before the SED (Stork Express Delivery) arrives and makes you a proud grandfather!

I am sure this is wrong (how could it not be?) but I have to try:

Hyvää syntymäpäivää sinulle hyvä ystävä Jarkko!

(should that be "hyvälle ystävälle"?)
