Meet the Trolls...
The Trolls have checked into the Gotland Summer Cottage early. They are time share owners so they had keys and did not wait to be greeted. They have the Ouija board set up, a candle is lit and they are asking the board for coordinates for their GPS which is on the table.
Martin knocks at the door. The Trolls ask him to just come in. Martin is filthy from cleaning up in the barn. He always likes to welcome the visitors when they arrive but not this time.
Martin comes on in and looks around.
He steps over and asks how things are so far. The Trolls say that everything is great and that they even finished decorating for their stay. Martin then asks what the Ouija board is for. The Trolls tell him they are asking the board about the weather for their hiking adventure.
The Trolls have requested Chocolate Cake, spoons and a block of ice. Martin always provides food that has been asked for from the list of many choices the Gotland offers. All the Trolls wanted was chocolate cake so Martin made them two of them. He also left them a wide assortment of silver spoons and a large block of ice in the freezer.
Martin leaves and the Green Haired Leader digs into one cake with a spoon.
The three other Trolls share the second cake.
When the leader is done eating he tells them it's time to go and to bring all the spoons.
And out the door they go singing a happy tune.
Hours and hours have passed. The GPS coordinates have been accurate and most beneficial. The Trolls have found a plethora of red jasper, many quartz, assorted tiger eyes and a large amethyst precious gemstone. They also saw a lot of deer but they made Troll noises and the deer pranced and scattered further into the forest.
"SCORE" says the Yellow Haired Troll as he raises his fists in excitement. They all stand in amazement at the great rocks they have dug up with just two shovels and many silver spoons. The lady Troll has wandered off to smell the flowers.
Hey... Close the Door!!!
The Trolls are investors in the Gotland but they aren't here to make friends. They have learned from a famous geologist & map surveys that many exquisite gemstones are buried on the land nearby and in caverns and caves. Gee... No wonder why they showed up with so much cash and begged to become investors.
