Gone Girl

Marriage can be a real killer.    One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that her work “draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction.” Gone Girl’s toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.    On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge.

Pastello in Morioka 2015

Thank you very much for coming to Pastello!

We had a good time together as we do every year.
This year's theme was "Himmeli" it's a traditional Finnish Christmas decoration made of straw. But we put a wind-bell in it to make it sound like summer. Good sounds!

     All the kids did a good job! They chose straw colours to their own liking. Each Himmeli had it's own personality.

We went to the park behind Oasis for lunch.
Kids played a lot until lunch and afterwards too!
It was a very hot day. But they didn't care! 

We ate Dale's handmade hamburgers!
It was very delicious as usual!
Thank you very much every year!

Have a good summer!
See you at next year's Pastello!
