Árni Johnsen, a member of the Icelandic parliament, had a car accident two years ago, when his car rolled over five times down a hill before stopping beside a large stone. Árni crawled out of the car unharmed and sat outside the car staring at this big stone until help arrived.

When Árni found out that the stone needed to be moved due to widening of the road, he decided he had to act. You see, stones like that are usually homes to the elves that have been living side by side with Icelanders since the beginning of times. Árni called to his assistance Ragnhildur Jónsdóttir, a woman from Hafnarfjordur, the capital of the elves, who has the unique talent of being able to see and talk to elves. They negotiated with the elves and Árni offered them to move to his home in the Westman Islands. The elves were relatively easy to convince as the stone was tilting. The oldest of the elves, the grandfather of the three generations living there, said his bed was almost vertical so when offered a more leveled ground with an ocean view and grass for the sheep, they were up for it.

Elves-icelandYesterday the 24 ton home of the elves was transported with a trailer from the location. The elves themselves did not stay in the stone during transportation but followed in Ragnhildur's small Peugeot, sitting in wicker baskets. The family is an elderly couple living on the upper floor in the stone and a younger couple on the lower floor with their three children. For comfort Ragnhildur brought their favorite treat, some honey they could enjoy along the ride.

Árni, who is known for his excellent bargaining skills, got some excellent prices for the transport, only having to pay the price of a truck on the ferry and tickets for two of the seven elves, the younger elf couple. The seniors and the children got a free fare.

Hjörtur

Like after the elves and they'll look after you.

wtf2.gif How did anyone know the elves were there? Were they seen? I saw a violet light under an old lavender bush late one night. Only for a few seconds, then it went out.
We later removed the said lavender, but before that I spoke of our intentions. Gave lots of time to relocate if necessary.
