Today's Tanya-ism

Conversation while driving to town.

"Our neighbour says her new puppies look like Bobik. (pause) All the dogs in the neighbourhood will soon look like Bobik.  All the cats will be orange (like Kuchma).  (long pause) Good thing only old Babushkas live around here."

She comes by it honestly.  She was talking to her sister Luda on Skype this morning.  Luda showed us one of the fresh buns she had just baked.  I said "Luda, please come and bake some for me".  I could hear Papa in the background yelling to me "If you wanted a woman to cook and look after you, you should have married one".

  2. Men look after their young wives, but Men decline past forty and women come into their prime - it is a good thing - at this time of life they start looking after us as we bumble along.

    1. Tanya says she will look after me when I get old...she will buy me a fancy new wheel chair...because she doesn't think she can push the old ones at the hospital...as far as the river.

  3. I think Tanya should have a blog. Tell her I'd follow it, if she did.
