Sweden: The Farm

There had been a rumor that my brother-in-law, Erick, otherwise known on this blog as Anon in Dubai, was going to lift the stone at the farm, and he was willing to do it on video. Unfortunately, he "got sick" and is leaving Sweden today for Dubai and Tina, who would serve as videographer, my boys, and my folks-in-law are conveniently on a road trip. So the world and fate seem to have conspired against him. Have a safe trip back, you and Anna.

Manual Labor? Anon in Dubai? It's hard enough to get him to lift a pencil at the office.

Back in Dubai, he has people do all the heavy lifting for him.

Anon will now be referred to as "The Lifter of Stones", please use the acronym TLoS in all further references to this great person in respect of his glorious achievement. P.S. the acronym TSL, (The Stone Lifter) will also suffice in recognizing his overwhelming superiority.

I'm still waiting on the video. Much as I trust my father-in-law to be speaking the truth about the actual lifting of the stone, I'm the skeptical type. I need to see it on tape, from the same and unbroken video point of view. With audio, and someone close by to swipe his arms over the stone itself to guarantee that there are not strings attached, so to speak, aiding with said lift. Until then, TSL to me means The Stone Lies (where it lies).

TLoS rebukes your attempts of defamation! However, TLoS would also have liked for the event to have be documented in visual form as to preserve the expression of shock on the aforementioned father’s face after the same aforementioned father openly and brazenly doubted TLoS’ ability to lift the famous stone. It was a true moment of pure victory! The event of the Stone, (hereafter the Stone will be spelt with a capital S to show the proper reverence to this great granite artefact), being lifted would never had occurred had not the aforementioned father displayed such utter disbelief in the TLoS’ super powers.
