Tink, and Sir Furry too...Tink has mentioned my habitation in the clean fresh air of nature...well, I know from my life in the countryside that you can accomplish wonderful things with just a sense of humour, I have seen it all my life...potential quarrels just dissolving in laughter...and conversely, it is still a wonder to me to find folk with NO sense of humour at all...taking offense at everything...
Anyway, Putin/Biden, whoever, could not carry on so...without us the hoi polloi...what if they tried to give a war and people just laughed them off?
Didge, who has come here a few times, he told me of reading about a bunch of Russian soldiers, youngsters, sent to Ukraine, but they thought it was just another exercise. And when they learned they were actually supposed to point their guns at people with live ammunition, the young Russians simply laid down those guns, went over and promptly surrendered to the Ukrainians.
I want to focus on the Russian oktavists, the Olympic skaters, the literature of Tolstoy, etc...the humanity.... I am not going to their war, I don't like it, I like the dancing and the wonderful limericks.
