the joneses

Our new aupair is here. He came in on a bus from siberia. It took 5 days. I always worry we won't find the aupair at the station when s/he arrives. And if i get in the bus and yell "Dmitriy!," half the males answer. Anyway, he's really tall. So riding my bike is out. Also the bed in his room may have to be chopped for firewood. I don't even know how tall he is. But it's no problem because my husband is a gigantic talker. The good thing is he can help us spy on the neighbors' gardens. We've needed some help with that.

this entire post had me cracking up and I'm not even sure it was meant to be humorous.

Yes, Dmitriy brought many many cedar nuts with him, some still in the cones. Mein Gott, I can't help but think of "Kolyma Tales!"
