I’ll be traveling this monday but that is no reason to divert from the normal routine and not publish the Monday morning Flashback, so here it is.

To start: the Flashback to week 07 of 2009.

Unspeakable & unbearable : Sawqrah. But she didn’t turn out to be for the Navy, apparently.

Flashback week 05-2010

Mondaymorning, Flashback time. This time to week 05 of 2010 and on the traditional time! I just relalised that I don’t even know why I started this on monday instead of any other day. mmmmm, maybe this opens the door to doing it on any other day of the week irregularly.

For the moment we start with the Flashback to week 06 of 2009.

The unspeakable Rautaruukki is also better unviewed.
