Stompa is back Home and Baby Vagabond's name revealed

Dear readers,
family and friends,

Last Saturday we had visitors.
Ingelin, Kaya, Baby Vagabond and Sölvi.

And Stompa was still in our Winter Home.
You are wellcomed to be a virtual visitor.

They came to bring Stompa, the Manx Cat, back home. Here in his favourite Chair.
10 years old he is.
He has stayed with us since early July. Both in our Summer House and in our Winterhome.
He felt more and more very well at Home with us and Felicia and Rosa.

Stompa was a very frequent vistor in our bed. And in the early mornings, mieoow, do you know what time it is? Hungry - U know.
He even told us when he wanted us to go to bed.

As usual, when we have visitors, we have to sit around the Family Heritage Table to join good food and beverages.

Baby Vagabond with typical Norwegian Tuque. Have you ever seen a cuter santa to be...

or? Santa is, as you might know from Turkey. Just read here.

Here is Baby Vagabond and Anna

Baby with boring Grandpa - Metin Leander preferred to sleep.
Yes, that's his name.
It means:
Metin is Turkish and means STRONG.
Leander is Greek and means: LION OF A MAN

What do you mean, when understanding the meaning of baby vagabonds name. Still strange and unusual, or did it help when explained the meaning_

Have a great week end to come.
I'm in Mariestad, Sweden. In RennyBA and DianeCA's leisure home.

That is the cutest little Santa helper I've seen in many years... *giggles*

A strong name choice - it's really suitable for such a healthy-looking baby boy!!!

It was fun talking to you in the phone - sorry that we couldn't be with you. Another time, another time, when all this fuss around us has been solved....

Hugz to you all from us both!

Lovely pictures and a lovely post. I like the name, Metin Leander. Strong like a lion, sort of. And he is indeed looking stronger and healthy too. You all must be very proud and happy to have time with the baby!

Takk for ny kunnskap.
Alltid gøy å få mer lærdom.
Ja, jeg så bildene av fødselen.
Vi mistet en kattunge etter to dager da vi hadde moren til Nøste (ho ligger kremert under torva i haven).
Han var nok heller ikke 100%- ville ikke ta til seg mat.
Rare greier hvordan mora gjemte ungen sin i et skap i annen etasje innerst i ei hylle bak en eske. Da jeg spurte hvor ho hadde gjort av ungen sin etter at besøket vi hadde hatt, var gått, viste ho meg stedet.
Da var ungen kald. Jeg hadde døpt han Kyrre Oktavian. Og han ble tatt av grevlingen etter han ble lagt i en eske og gravlagt! Litt av en historie.
Ha en fin kveld!

Baby Vagabond will certainly have to grow into that strong and original name. Safe travels. xo

Baby Vagabond is just so adorable Grandpa Tor. I'm so glad you told us what his name means...I love to know it's origins. I love the pictures of you and Anna holding much love. He's the best looking little Santa I've seen in a very long time. Stay well and wonderful Tor.... ~Joy xo
