First National Bank of Northfield gets a banner. What the hell does it say?

    The banner is still there this morning, but with no wind, it’s even more obscured than yesterday.

    “Norgaard.” For Bjorn, I presume.

    It says “If you can read this, you’re tail-gating this building!” But it says it in Finnish or Klingon or something.

    I think it says Norgaard. It is for Bjorn.

    Taking another look, I believe Jane is quite right.

    One of the guys I work with is of Finnish ancestry, and often holds conversations with his wife in Finnish. Strangest sounding language I’ve every heard, and I’ve heard quite a few over the years, and the first time I ever heard it I honestly wondered if it were Klingon! I believe it is one of the few world languages not considered closely related to any other language, which would certainly explain why it sounded so strange to me.

    Shucks! I thought maybe the city was going to run the Motokazie race through town and the bank was going to be the Finnish line!
