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

Next week we go to Tiny Russian Village…

We were able to get the money together to get two more windows like the front one we replaced…

Yesterday was very busy and mosquitoes are well fed…

So that means we have the windows to replace the side ones at the Russian village home. The windows cost about 3000 rubles (under $50) each. Exactly the same as they were two years ago when we bought the first one. It was nice and is nice to see inflation cease to exist for awhile here in Russia. The windows are real wood and double paned, very nice…

It stretched the budget, but some things have to get done. The windows in the village home were in very bad shape…

I also bought for 20 rubles some rose fertilizer and I hope we still have cherries to munch on in the village. I know that we are going to have a huge apple crop this year and we also have strawberries to pick. The last time we were in TRV that white lilac was doing good and in a few years lets hope to have some wonderful white flowers…

I have to work on the Sammy the Volga. I still need to discover where the oil leak is coming from and we have a strange noise in the rear axle area. I think the brakes are having an issue on the right side in the back…good old drum brakes…

Therefore, today I will be crawling around under the car and trying to see what is going on…

Sveta and I walked for hours last night, the weather is perfect and Moscow is so nice when everyone goes to the dachas and villages. It really is a good thing for the kids to be raised spending months in the villages, learning to grow gardens and raise animals…

Have a nice day..
