Time to think about the Village… (2015)

village
IMG0111AThis winter Sammy the Volga sat quietly waiting. It is just not worth trying to fight with the huge amount of traffic and the hours of time it takes to do even a simple store run of a few kilometers. The cars are that numerous and the people are that terrible of drivers, in Russia…

As you see I had found a perfect spot for her and unlike the previous years of being snowed in and unable to get out, Sammy is looking good. Boza leads me to her everyday and we check her out. Well yesterday, I fired her up and moved her to a better spot to allow me to start getting her ready for going to the village…

She fired up on the second turn of the starter and ran beautifully. Actually I was surprised, for she sat for months this time, before I tried to start her. Remember, from my past articles, Sammy is dual fuel (Propane and Benzine) and a Volga. Volga’s are one tough car, As we travel we pass many a new car, broken down on the side of the road and knock on wood, we keep tooling along. Sammy is a good Russian made car…

Boza and I have been waiting patiently and we want to go to the village. It looks like we have to wait a little longer though, the village is still snowed in. Sveta talked to one of the villagers and he told her that the snow is still deep and as it melts, the mud is worse than terrible. That is the village for you and for that matter much of Russia is in deep mud right now, or still frozen solid…

I am going to post again from the village and will put the posts on the front page of Windows to Russia. The blog will be where it is at still, but I will separate the village posts from the rest of the blog. I will start to do this before I leave, as I have many posts of the village to get brought forward and allow people to start seeing what they have forgotten about. I know many are anxious to see what changes are made in the bell tower and the monastery…

This means time to get ready and when the day comes, take off and get to heaven itself; The Russian Village…

I will tell my plans of what I will grow in the village this year, what I will do to the village house this year and what Sveta, I and Boza will be doing. This will all come in the next few weeks as I get ready…

I will tell you that I will plant root vegetables and beets, rutabagas, and turnips are the main choice. With a few carrots tossed in to make a salad with… 🙂

PS: The blog is getting busier and busier after I shut down the spam and death threats I received all the time. I may come up with a page for comments on the village section and allow people to comment on the village posts. That is if I do not get called everything but a white boy 100 times a day… Really sad that we have become a country of hate and warmongering. Yes the hate comes from America, for otherwise I could allow comments and never be attacked constantly…

I will say it again, paid trolls or not, America is a sick society…
