Vova and I are building again…

Vova came down and we had lunch. I had bought some pies from the pie shop and Vova and I shared them. He was happy and he even just drank water today. Then he was looking at our table and benches as he always does, then he grunted and grumbled and said he would be right back. I finished the laundry I was working on, while he went up to his home and after a few choice words, a chainsaw running and a few more choice words he appeared with his homemade wheelbarrow and we went to work…

Boza of course supervised and he does a fine job at that. So in the end, we had something that resembled a picnic table and two benches The table is twice the size of the other one and Vova was acting like he was playing cards to see if it was the right height and size. He seemed satisfied, if I was in America, we would play either Pitch or Poker where I am from, but here in Russia, I do not know what they play…

Have a nice day…

    How do You pronounce Vova’s name? Long vowels, short vowels? Thanks.
    Hey wait a minute…is that a Birch tree in the yard? Don’t Russians have a special reverence for their Birch trees?

    Birch is a Russian perfect tree, in their eyes. It has special sap to drink and people collect it and sell it on the roadside at seasonal times. Shade trees and they plant them everywhere… We have four huge Birches in our yard and they make great shade trees. I have allowed one to grow in the side yard also… We have a birch forest nearby and the roads to the Big Village is lined with birches…

    Vova as it sounds. Russians pronounce as basics V O V A like NOVA except VOVA… {Вова (Russian)}

    Vova = Vladimir, Volodka, Volodya and many more…

    Same name Putin has, very likely friends or parents would have called Putin, Vova… For Putin is not his first name Vova is…
