In Russia it is said that chickens are milked, and cows carry eggs. (A mockery of those who believe ridiculous rumors.)

Boza and I are Bachelors for a week…

Kind of sums it up pretty well…

There are three basic kinds of liars: Sociopaths, Psychopaths and the most dreaded Political Parasites. And all political parasites are either sociopaths or psychopaths…

That seems like a good way to see what we have for leaders in the world…

But…

Boza and I are bachelors for a week and Svetochka is back in Moscow. Boza and I walked this morning and since I did not get to bed last night until very late, I am groggy this morning. Boza is happy next to me and I am surfing the internet…

May just take it easy today?

The new walls are double painted and I am now starting on the side wall of the Tiny Russian Village Home. We have all the wood that is left over stacked and covered against the elements and you can see it covered with a blue tarp in the second picture…

I will go to the Big Village tomorrow and get a angled long handled paint brush. I need it to help get under the eves of the house and will in the next few days get the side of the home painted. I also painted another section of back wall and once the side is done, we are done painting for the winter. It is getting cold fast, should have freezing nights in a week or so…

The neighbors are all painting also. This weekend was wonderful, everyone’s homes are looking good. Painting party going on, without the party… 😉

Second cup of coffee this morning…

It is cold at about +5 and since sleep was elusive, coffee is excellent to help that issue…. Already talked with my sweetpea and she is at work and while not happy to not be with us, she is happy and safe in Moscow. Boza and I miss her already…

Splurged yesterday, bought some Jacobs coffee. It is strong, rich and nutty tasting. Jacobs Gold is the type and was on sale. That is the only way I will buy Jacobs. Otherwise too expensive. I like Nescafe the best,but occasionally I want some different taste to my coffee. Jacobs answers that need and desire…. Jacobs is a very popular coffee in Russia…

German Coffee…

I will be back on track tomorrow and will take some pictures of the neighbors homes. They are looking good, except one is a color that I will call pumpkin and thus, the home is now the Pumpkin House when I talk about it…

Speaking of pumpkins…

A babushka at the top of the Tiny Russian Village, has got a pumpkin growing in a interesting spot. It still is not near ripe and is hanging on, but I hope she is ready to grab it. It will split if it falls and hits the ground. It is a big pumpkin. I am always amazed at how the nicest veggies like to find the weirdest spots to become monsters in size. I had to build a platform once for pumpkins that grew like this…

I see this pumpkin and think of pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, baked pumpkin, boiled pumpkin and roasted pumpkin seeds…

Yummy…
