The Cat Came Back?
Wow! Are you me? Under an assumed name??
must have been a long time ago! before the nanny state!! toys made out of shards of glass? too dangerous for the little kiddies… ;)
Tsaryok used to attack my legs with tooth and claw whenever I was in the downward dog position. Such a weird guy. I miss him!
and well into the 70’s, when I was a student in Leningrad. Mostly it’s English speakers who call the scarf a babushka, since they associate it with older women, even though, as you say, Slavic women of all ages tended to wear them. The Russian word is “platok”, and the Polish word is chusteczka.
i can’t imagine how you are feeling, what a shock. But it is a lovely tribute you left him here. condolences.
Technically, more like granny, as babushka is the word for grandmother. baba is also slang for chick or old woman…
This commercial has been brought to you by capitalism.
Where is it better to live than in America? A country without the power to blow up the planet, without rampant capitalism, without unbridled polluting and wasting… I think there are a few such countries left.
