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

Vova was down and Sveta is gone…

Vova stopped by first thing this morning, he has been waiting for Svetochka to leave and now I get to have a Vova a day to keep the doctor away. I pulled a bad tooth for him, I guess he was waiting for Sveta to leave to have me help him. We tied a nylon fishing line around it and I yanked it out. It was loose and ready to come out, it also gave him terrible troubles. Three shots of vodka and a hard yank did the trick. Damn tooth was long and now he has a trophy to show everyone… 😉

I suspect that he will hit the bottle for most of the day… Got to disinfect the mouth you know…

Boza and I are sad today, but we will get into the swing of things. Fun time is over. Sveta is gone back to Moscow and will check on her mom and family. I am hoping that she can convince her mom to travel to the Crimea and spend some time in a sanatorium. Russians love their sanatoriums for rest and relaxation. Expensive, but full board and lots of delicious food. Also lots of exercise in a good way. The use of a sanatorium is a leftover from the Soviet times and Crimea has some great ones…

Time to paint, cut grass and cut up firewood. I also have to keep the garden under control, being much bigger this year will make that interesting. It has been a blast having Svetochka here in the village, time to work…

It seems this is the first time for the women in the military to march in the Victory Day Parade. Sveta was excited about this fact…

Victory Day Parade 2016! We watched it from the computer in the village and we had hardly any issues with internet…
