Okay, maybe just maybe…

See, being grouchy, waiting and looking even grouchier helps…

This is how I look when waiting patiently for others to get things done…

My My yes it does!

Father Pavel called and said that he had a good talk with the Electric Company Boss and they will get the rotted electric pole replaced….(I am using my imagination and letting it imagine how a “Orthodox Monk” twists arms to get things done. I imagine, “Monk Mafia!”, Yes I like it)

The culvert is on its way thanks to the Fish Village and father Pavel again…

Ivan our mechanic in the Big Village has gotten the parts for Sammy the Volga, so this weekend Sammy goes to stay at the Big Village…

And NO, the Russian Post Office has no idea where the package from the US is, so far! (Oh to be me….how do I tell Sammy the Volga, if the post office ate her baby car model? I should never have shown her pictures of the model…)

Another day…
