Just a normal day at the Tiny Russian Village

Burn Baby Burn – Trying to warm up the Tiny Russian Village

Took two days of burning nasty stuff and I have finally cleaned our small field of years of abuse. The neighbors love to toss everything over their back fence. You know! Vodka bottles, tree limbs, rusty buckets and what ever else catches their fancy…

Today I make three trips to their dump area near them and toss what they should have hauled there in the first place!

Also – Looking like the monastery will get its fence done soon…


A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, whom has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home. His wife is a true Russian Sweet Pea of a girl and she puts up with this bear of a guy and keeps him in line. Thank God for my Sweet Pea and Russia.
