Here's Your Life


Then we borrow some...

...for a year

Stop that!

I had a rifle last year.

I knew an old hunter.

He lived on raw meat and booze.

-And knew the Bible backwards.

-You skinny little runt!

If you want to fight,

you have to fight me.

You work too hard

to be able to stand liquor.

Now she's warm.

Let's get started.

They didn't have any kerosene,

so I got some change.


Here I've stayed...

I just count in charges.

But you can't ask too much of life.

I've seen some things...

I've seen my children die.

Like butter you drop on the stove.

It just sizzles.

Then they're gone.

First, the twins died.

They were cursed.

By a whirlwind.

He wasn't hard,

but he was nasty.

He just touched them briefly,

but they went in no time.

They got ill in the autumn.

Their bodies went crooked.

Just like they had been wrung

by an invisible hand.

First, August Linus Isak died.

Then Karl Julius Leonard.

A week later,

my wife went across the meadow.

She was getting water.

Keep the change.

You'll need it.

If you're not going to

make your fortune here.

Big charge tonight.

The boss was here.

I could have guessed it.

-Do you chew tobacco?


-You haven't started yet?


-Then you don't smoke either?


But you might start?

Yes, I was planning on it.

Thank you.

I remember him.

I remember him.

You shared the same name.

And that's what they called him.

He never had any nicknames.

They just ran off him.

That's how your father was.

Now he's lying there.

It's good that he's found peace.

We were friends back in 1890.

All the things we built back then...

He sang from time to time.

We all sang.

But he was never drunk, whether

it was because he didn't drink,

or if the schnapps

didn't have any effect on him.

Your father...

We spent a lot of time together.
