Janitorial Series - Part 1

In addition to being a Train Conductor, a Zookeeper, and a Professional Dog Walker when he grows up, Per also plans to add Janitor to the list. In the first of our janitorial series, Per demonstrates his abilities to get into even the darkest the corners of our kitchen...

Per visits the Minnesota Zoo

Over Christmas break, Per decided to visit the Minnesota Zoo. He had big plans to set the animals free and take them all to Ethiopia (his old stomping grounds - as he refers to it).

Here he is drooling and distracted just before the hospital surgeon punched some holes in his eardrums. I'm not sure this is the best way to convince our youth to say no to drugs...



Per all dressed up for Halloween. With Per's physique, however, the bones weren't fooling anyone...



A rare glimpse of Per as he'd not want you to see him - a softer side, serving tea at one of his tea parties.



And, of course, no holiday season would be complete without one of Per's famous souffle's...



Once the Christmas packages come rolling in, Per had more fun with the packaging than the actual goods.



Per contemplates the thought of a long, cold, Michigan winter....
