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

Sisoy a small village near our tiny village…

20150721_132430We needed to go a pay the electrical bill, but they were closed (Post Office.) Therefore today we will go back and pay instead. Sveta took an image of the hours sign, for we never know in the past if they are ever open. Typical Russians, open when you feel like and never open when life has better things to do. Well, they say they should be closed yesterday and they were. Now lets see about today, Wednesday…

The village is called Sisoy, just as it looks and sounds; Si-soy… (no vowel usage.)

The church is just an old village home, as per many village done the same way, but the brick foundation in front of it, is the original church and they will hopefully rebuild that church one day. They will do the same thing to our destroyed church one day…

The images of the village homes do not do justice to how beautiful they are, for it was a very rainy and cloudy day. Thus as much of the village, the homes are in great shape and it is a prosperous village as you can tell, thousand homes like these…

The last image is my favorite; Russians do what it takes to get the job done, just like we use to do on the farms. You do what you have to and in this case, grab a bunch of neighbors and tip the LADA Niva on its side, then fix it when you can…

Oh! Do not worry about the lawsuits in Russia, for when it falls and kills three or four neighbors? That is just tuff stuff and part of life… 🙂

That my folks is why I just love Russia with all my heart…
