It is Christmas for the Orthodox and just Thinking…

Orthodox Christmas…

Very quiet out as I walked this morning:

The customers in Globus could be counted on one hand. I had a good breakfast and picked up some groceries for the home front. I also met and said good morning to a cop that recognized me as he walked to work this morning and that triggered this post mainly…

Two nights ago I was on one of my long evening walks and found myself in the middle of three cops trying to arrest a guy who was very strung out on drugs. Not alcohol but drugs. It was easy to tell. he was flying higher than a kite…

I had walked around a van and saw a guy break loose from the cops as they tried to get him under control. He ran straight at me and I sidestepped and clotheslined him at chest level so not to kill him. It was actual much more a instinct response and not a response that I thought about. But, he dropped like a wet noodle and screamed bloody murder…

I just pointed at him and kept walking. The young guy I saw this morning was one of the cops and he is the first who responded to handcuff the guy. I heard a thank you (Spasibo) and I wordlessly disappeared to our home…

Being an American, I had no desire to get involved and beat a trail home. Good or bad better to not draw anymore attention to yourself in the world. But…

I was remembered and he smiled at me and said, “Dobroye Utro” and I told him the same…

Wonder what he would think if he realized I was an American?


But back to Christmas morning:

I got near the big church on the main highway and lines of people already walking to the church. That explains why I was almost alone in Globus. It is the Real Christmas. You know?

The snow was falling and it is about -4 degrees. It was a beautiful morning and very soft feeling temperature wise. It made for a good walk and when hardly anyone is around, it allows me to stop and study things easily. Many days there are so many people it is all you can do just to keep from getting run over. Today though, I could really look around and I liked that…

One thing that has stood out is 5G towers everywhere. I have been wondering why they have been installing so many new cell towers. They are everywhere. This morning it hit me….5G is going full tilt in Moscow, Russia and they have been installing the system for several years as I have seen walking around. Duh…

Sveta is at the grandkids for these last days of the winter holidays and I hope she comes home tomorrow. I miss my sweetpea…

Time to go and get caught up on what the world is doing!
