Vikings in the family tree...


one of my great, great, great…..grandfathers 

was quaintly named,


Thorfinn Skull Cleaver


he was the Earl of Orkney around the year 970

that was towards the end of the Viking era


we became civilized after that

We have Viking blood, too, and our names start with C! Love this monogram, Cathy.

Wow....skull and cleaver. I'll bet he was a scary guy!! Which probably came in handy during the Viking era.
