My grandfather: Kalmer Oldus Fossdal. Born in 1901, and here he is in the army at the age of 19 or 20. A hardworking farmer, miner and musician. A kind man with a good sense of humor, and an endless patience with his grandkids.
My favorite quote from him:
“Du må skryt tå dæ sjøl, førr du hi itj bøgda å lit på.”
“You should praise yourself, because you can’t trust your neighbours to do it for you.”.
I guess he was a bit of a philosopher too 🙂
