Some images from the village area… (Coffee and TRV)

Tiny Russian Village or TRV as I call it…. You can never get enough pictures of the area and definitely get enough pictures of Boza. Boza is not to good at posing for the camera, but Svetochka tries…. This year in Russia it is sunflower year. The fields of sunflowers are everywhere. Also grain was record in size. Most likely the largest grain haul ever in Russian history…

Dreaming of the Tiny Russian Village this morning. Moscow is packed to the brim again with kids and people from all walks of life. School starts Friday, the 1st of September, 2017. Right now the wonderful empty Moscow is like sardines again…. Packed tightly with people…

It is all okay, just nice when the monkeys are gone…

We are thinking about when we are going to get back to the Tiny Russian Village. We were called and told that the back wall of the village home is done and we have to get down to paint it. They said they have some brick work left to do, but the wall is built and secured. This is going to be interesting to have a solid back wall again…

Svetochka and I have to get to a home store and buy paint and a ladder. It is time to paint the village home from top to bottom again…. I think just plain white is perfect, well see…. The back wall has been termite proofed, sealed and reinforced, plus covered with new wood…

I also have to wax the car. I have a green carnauba wax that I will wax it with in the village. It is time to finish the car. I have to redo the rear brakes, found a leaky rear wheel cylinder and I need to get under the car and weld the exhaust in one spot. I have a welder and it is time to fix the exhaust. Bad seam where the pipes are joined at the muffler…. It is tight but not sealing up as I like…

We have to get a new electric meter installed at the village home. Things are never easy to get done in Russia, but that is all okay…

Vacation time in Moscow almost over. Got to get back to the real world of the Tiny Russian Village. We will let you know when we are leaving…. Svetochka wants to take a few weeks to enjoy life there and then at the beginning of October, I have to leave Russia…. Another trip to Europe is necessary, for Russia says I have to leave every so often… 🙁
