So as most of you know, I moved into my new house last month. I have since met many of the neighbor's and I must say thus far I am pleasantly surprised.
The little people who live beside us are Russian. They are little apple dolls that are masquerading as people. (When I googled "apple dolls" I got this... and it is really creepy and I think it may give me nightmares). Apple people had some problems with their computer so I went over to help them. He is 85 and she is 81. Did I mention how cute they were? Anyways, she starts telling me how her husband suffers from a bad back and arthritis - she points out it's because HE is old - in a hushed tone "He IS 85 you know!". Next thing I know, I see him in our back yard moving a huge filing cabinet back into the storage shed. Little old Superman. She must have gotten comfortable with me because she started talking to me in Russian. Then her husband came back with a bucket of unpasturized honey and started telling me all of it's benefits - good for burns, good for cuts, scrapes, sore throats, blisters, chapped lips - you name it. Just slap some honey on there and you're good to go. "Why no body here knows this... not like the old country. In old country, everyone know honey like magic."
So, off I went with honey in hand thinking how nice it is to have little old apple people next door...who keep showing up at my back door with muffins and little presents and talking to me in Russian.
