In the early 20th century my paternal grandparents, Rikard Severin Källman (1887-1968) and Lydia Abrahamson (1890-1978) immigrated from Sweden. I am exploring my Swedish ancestors immigrant journey to "Amerika" and life in Swedish Chicago. I am searching for cousins everywhere to share family stories, pictures, memories and new discoveries about our Swedish heritage and our family today.

Saturday's Silly Ole and Lena joke

Ole and Lena jokes are standard fare for the person of Scandinavian ancestry. Just for fun I thought that each Saturday I would post on both my Norwegian and Swedish blog, one of my favorites. If I knew who originated them I would credit them but these are oldies but goodies? (a matter of opinion)

Every Sunday Ole would drive Lena into town for church services and every Sunday he would get a little too frisky with his hands. The day after their wedding they were again driving into town for church services and wouldn't you know...Ole was at it again.

       Lena:  "Uff da Ole. Ve are married now. I tink its okay to go further."

So Ole drove to Duluth.
