Survive the core of Russian winter and get back to the Tiny Russian Village (Thinking Time)

It is really a different world:

Masks and gloves in all businesses if you even try to venture out. No exceptions and no excuses. No options, put on a mask and gloves to enter anything…

It is like the whole world has become a form of as prison for humans…

Except when I am in the Tiny Russian Village…

So even when I walk with Svetochka? Taking pictures is not as easy of a situation as it use to be. Svetochka has gone to work today….major operation to get everything lined out for her to go. One thing is that all parts for her servers are sent to our home now…

Or if you need auto parts like this lady getting a battery for her car…

It is a delivery business anymore…

Fast Food delivered, as below…

I mean everywhere are delivery guys…

The delivery business in Russia, which sucked before the King Covid-19 era, has become a fine tuned machine. What use to be a joke as to when you would get what you ordered, has become perfected and is well oiled now. Businesses either deliver? Or wilt & die on the vine, so to say…

Just look for the purple sign, everywhere…

China has taken the internet ordering by storm and companies like AliExpress, Ozon, Wildberries and such are running record sales as they set up deliver services and or hole in the wall pick up places all over. Wildberries has become a powerhouse of a Russian internet store. They set up cubby holes on every corner and you can pick up that internet order in just a few days. From toothpaste to brand new smartphones…,with easy return policies and satisfaction guaranteed to delight even the most ridiculous customers…

AliExpress and others such as them have huge warehouses set up in (all over) Russia and nothing takes more than a few days to get by the new system in effect. We know, we use it exclusively…

Delivery in Russia has become a phenomenal operation:

It is a sign of the times. You want McDonald’s? It is on your doorstep in 30 minutes. You want a new computer? It can be on your doorstep in 30 minutes. You want and you want? It can be there in a few days at most. As with everything, the more you pay the faster it comes…

Svetochka loves the world the way it is. She did not like having to go to work today to do server maintenance and install new batteries in her servers. Yet this is only a once every few weeks operation that needs to be done. Still somethings have to be done in person…

The stay at home worker in Russia has become the mainstay and contrary to reports, Russians are (at least who desire) working and working a bunch. Money is not an issue and supply of everything is plentiful….when compared to the Western World that we so spout as being wonderful….yes issues are in Russia, yet they pale compared to what I see happening in most of the world…

Russia is actually flourishing under King Corona:

The issue is that Russians are very introvert and in a generalization, they have taken to the Covid-19 era like a fish to water. Sveta is a perfect example. She is happier than a “pig in a mud waller” to stay at home and work work work…

Sveta does work from home and works hard…

I am glad to be here in Moscow, my sweetie is my life, yet, I desire the Tiny Russian Village. As I said to Sveta, “I am a farm boy and if I want to take a piss, I want to walk outside and take a piss!”

Sveta looks at me as if, “You barbarian!”

But that is why she loves me! 😉

Kinda hard to even walk outside in Moscow and take a piss, much less even walk around the block…

I cannot remove the barbarian (country boy) from my soul…

So at the end of February 2021, this barbarian (country boy) is going to be working on getting to the Tiny Russian Village. By that time, I will have reached my point of either getting to TRV or needing to be restrained from doing bad things, such as walking around without a mask and gloves…

It was an improbable romance. He was a country boy. She was from the city. She had the world at her feet, while he didn’t have two dimes to rub together. – Jeremy Leven

But it works and one day, sooner than you all realize, us country boys will have the perfect village, farm home, that will be the only place that the family is able to survive. The Tiny Russian Village that I stay at is one of the last bastions of freedom that we have left in the civilized world…

Moscow is as big city as it gets and is survivable by myself personally. But, 10 to 15 million people is just too many. Yet I enjoy Moscow and all it has to offer…

We just ordered a bow and arrow. A hunting bow! It will go to TRV and stay….the future will need such a weapon. I am proficient in use of such weapons, for sport and hunting. Many a deer has fallen to my arrow. I need to tone up my rusty skills a bit and TRV is just that place…

I will start to make arrows again, as I use to do…

You see:

I utilize Moscow and its different flow of life to accomplish things that I could never get done in the village. Or get done quickly for the most part. But, I am rebuilding and fortifying the village homes to be future proof…

I am seeing the light at the tunnel end. There are so many lighted side tunnels as we go along….yet the end light is showing itself to be a totally changed world and most of us are going to live to see this world. The ones who are ready? Will see the end light differently than the ones who blindly stare at their smartphone screens and expect Google and such to guide them…

Yes, that bow and arrow will be needed in the Tiny Russian Village…

WtR

It is really a different world…
