Yesterday in the Tiny Russian Village (TRV) Trash Dump

Happiness comes in such little moments at times…

The Tiny Russian Villages all around the Ryazan Oblast are facing fines and issues, brought on by an age old issue and new rules to correct these issues. They are installing trash dumpsters (mind you slowly, but surely) at all villages. Also this has never been done before and local villagers are kinda pissed off….threats of fines and responsibilities for dealing with old dump areas and flying accusations of who is at fault and responsible are dragging the idiots out of the wood work…

One such area for dumping over many years is right behind our home. A ditch from erosion and three meters deep plus of trash.I use it also and as so many others in the past. But it is gone now and woe and behold anyone who tries to continue the practice of messing things up again after I get it fully done. Knuckle sandwiches for all… 🙂

I had gone for a walk around the village. I found Father Pavel of the monastery and sat down in the shade to have tea with him and communicate about the finer things in life. Father Pavel is a good man and has a good heart. He is trying to rebuild the ancient monastery, yet without money….kinda hard to do…

We watched the backhoe doing its thing and filling up the dump truck with junk from the new property that the monastery acquired…

Then a light bulb went off over my head and an issue that has been eating at me and how to solve it came up. We in the Tiny Russian Village are so far out from civilization, that getting workers with heavy equipment to come out is hard. But here we had for the day a backhoe and dump truck already in the village…

I wish I could say that all ten dump areas are now taken care of, but alas, I feel blessed to get the one near our home that would have the blame pinned on us. Father Pavel liked the idea and at around 5 p.m. yesterday, here comes everyone all excited to have exciting stuff to watch…

It is a Tiny Russian Village, you know!

I was prepared to pay and needed to have this done. Yet Father Pavel said that the monastery has done this for us and no charge!

Sveta and I say, “Thank you Nikolai Monastery and thank you Father Pavel.”

Now if we can get the dumpsters that the local government keep saying we have to have and pay for installed?

That is another issue and out of my hands completely. But our dump spot is history and when I am done moving dirt and sowing grass seed, it will be just a footnote in history…
