In between rain and more rain at TRV…

For a month now the well has run and the TRV is flooded so bad at the pump station that no one can and or will get to it. I will go get water to wash clothes and dishes with this morning, yet I have to ask, “Who is going to pay for all this electricity that a huge 220 volt submersible pump is using for this month? & Why is the pump running 24 hours a day anyway?”

Stupid is as stupid does and don’t ask me to pay for all the waste…


I think I will go to the big village this morning and get a few supplies, like peanut butter….yummy yummy. Yes peanut butter is now common in Russia…

Years ago I talked about why not peanut butter in Russia…

Yes even the tiny villages have it now…

Besides it will rain all day tomorrow and driving out on our goat trails is no fun in the rain and storms…


I had an uneasy feeling every time I walked out the back door. There was not a rail and it just felt uneasy, for I am not as surefooted as I use to be. So, I built a rail and now the back door feels good. Took me two days with all the rain, but I got it done…

I know it is night time, yet my day starts at 3 a.m. and it is dark until late anymore…


Electric company came by yesterday, nice people and I was asked and gave them all the homes that I knew were occupied as of this moment (no use trying to wake no one around). People like to ignore the electric company. I guess it all falls into the same issue that we have a well running 24 hours a day and who wants to or who will pay. Hard job to catch the cheaters of the system. So many bypass meters and us payers pay for their stealing. Russians as so many in the world hope you never ask for payment and ignoring works into that equation….I think it stems mainly from Soviet Era…

Kinda falls into the same category of registering your village home so that you own it and when you loose it, “What Happened?”

If you gonna cheat, at least cheat smartly and not have ten wires illegally sprawled and hung loosely on the main power wires all over the outside of the home as so many do….they are starting to cut off the older spots that no one has paid for since many years now…


I like the, “What and why would an American want to live in a Tiny Russian Village?” look, I get all the time…

It’s actually happiness when I see it…


Gotta go….time to walk, get water and maybe take a few pictures…

Have a nice day!
