    And, a good gardener ...

    I also appreciated that her gardening environment was likely tougher than mine. Of course, Larissa has all those mollycoddled house plants.

    (I also enjoyed thinking about my language when typing something that I knew she would be reading :). Tough to trip her up, though. Larissa knowing about Jimmy Stewart's It's a Wonderful Life was shocking! She may have used online translation at times but it was all part of being a sophisticated lady.)

    Here am I…

    IMG-20170519-WA0002 - копия.jpg

    It's me at work, I get presents. It is a pity that receiving gifts is a small part of my job.
    But now I'm on vacation.

    Richard, I saw a video with apricots. Today in the store I looked at the counters and realized that I would not find such apricots! Only cognac!

    Here, Armenians sell apricots from Greece and Turkey. This leads me to a mercantile idea to get acquainted with one of them personally in order to get apricots from Armenia.
    @Sam BigDeer
    I've always loved reading your parables. If you tell a parable and drink cognac, you get a toast.

    I just know a good Armenian toast.

    In one house lies the old man. Suddenly he hears a knock at the door.
    - Who's there?
    - This is Love!
    - I already had love, I do not need another.
    Again knock.
    - "Who is it again?"
    - "This is health!"
    - I was young, I was healthy and beautiful. Now I do not need it.
    Again knock.
    - And who is this?
    - This is happiness! Okroy me, let in the house!
    - "Why should I be happy now? I was happy".
    And again someone knocked at the door to the old man.
    - What do you need? Asked his grandfather.
    "Rejoice, old man! Your wealth has come to you!"
    - Why do I need it? I understood the price of money - they are worthless.
    And then suddenly he heard cheerful voices, laughter and a knock at his window.
    - Open up quickly! We are here, your faithful friends!
    - The old man could not refuse friends, opened the doors before them. And together with friends the house came happiness, health, wealth and love.
    So let always there will be friends! Then there will always be happiness, and love, and health, and wealth!

    And thanks to all-all-all for the kind words!:):):)

    Steve, you did not see me 4 days ago! :D
    My neighbor next to the country house is digging a deep well this year. I climbed into this pile of land with my ears! More than 300 million years ago there was a sea here. I collected several packages of fossil blue clay. This clay is valued as a cosmetic. Therefore, I will pack it beautifully and give it to the ladies I know !

    Dear ladies! It is a pity that you are far away. I would have brought it for you, too.:)

    There are many belemnites (Belemnitida) in this clay. I collect them in a collection. I'm scared to think that I'm holding an artifact with several million years old!

    This year, June was very cold. At the beginning of the month, snow fell, then hail.

    In Moscow there was a strong hurricane. He plucked the earth a lot of trees with roots, tore off the roofs of old houses and even took several bus stops. I do not expect a very big harvest this year.

    Therefore, few of the flowers.
