Sailor SindrElf

1 year old

In 1991, when I was one year old, my family brought me on a boat, and dressed me as a little sailor.


I was running around and enjoying myself, before eventually approaching a group of German tourists who were visiting Norway.

Naturally, I started dancing and showing off.

A little into my performance, another slightly older boy came up to me and pushed me over.

He had evidently seen all the attention I was getting, and gotten jealous.

  1. Cute photo – now if you had been a sailor like “Popeye” and eaten your spinach, you’d have gotten up and smacked him down in a heartbeat. Hope you had the cartoon “Popeye” in Norway.

        1. I have not seen it that much, but there were a song about him that alle the kids used to sing.
          Probably just the Norwegian version of the theme, taught to the kids by the parents who had seen it.

          1. It was a popular cartoon in the late 50s/early 60s – I think people only reference Popeye now when they talk about eating spinach to make you stronger. 🙂
