Another Picture Day in the Russian Village… (September 24th, 2014)

A wood vine above, I am nurturing for a beautiful fence line…

E72_amethystI finally got my new old cell phone; A Nokia E72 and it came just in time! I had killed several phones here in the village and was down to a phone with no camera. I am rough on phones and carry them everywhere with me, to allow Sveta to get hold of me when ever she needs to. I also need a phone, for I have had six heart attacks back in the U.S. and need to be able to call for help when needed…

The images today are from that phone, the one you see on the right and it does pretty good. The last phone, if you remember was a BlackBerry and it was fantastic as far as a telephone, but took terrible pictures and was so poorly built, that I had to superglue it back together three times. The camera gave out, but it still does a good job making calls. But I want to take pictures of life as I go through it and the BlackBerry Pearl Flip just failed terribly in body strength, software and camera…

So lets see what Nokia can do and so far it is pretty good…

Above: We have maple trees here and they are in full fall glory as I am writing this article. The forest is alight with colors from the Maple trees. This reminds me of home in the Ozarks…

Above: The lake is being drained and either today or tomorrow they will start to take the fish out to sell. We are the last lake and they are emptying them as they work our way. I watched how they do it and will try to get some pictures of them working our lake. I noticed that they pull all the men from all over the lake at this time of the year and everyone works, works and works some more. The fish village owners supply a huge lunch everyday for the men working the ponds and I mean a huge meal. There is about 12 women who are cooking and they have built a big ole long table to let everyone sit together and enjoy a meal. Reminds me of barn raising as I grew up. The women are in long wool dresses with bonnets and scarves on and the men are covered in blankets as they eat, with hot tea/coffee regularly, to get warm (It is cold here folks.) What a great life…

Above: Our home in the Russian Village. I am working in the yard and it is still a mess. Today I have to build several items, one item is a gutter drain stand and second item is a table. I have the wood gathered for these two items and today I will build them. The blue barrels in the image, are the rain catch barrels and they will be put inside the home for the winter. The metal rusted barrels are getting a work out as I burn brush and leaves that were cut up this summer. What a wonderful home to have in a village. I have done so much to revitalize her, but I still have so much more to finish her for full-time living…

Well that is all today and I have two fence posts to dig and a table to build and a support for the gutter system. Therefore I need to get going and work, instead of gabbing on the internet…

Have a nice day, for I will for sure… 🙂
