There are many Russian readers of my blog. Hardly a week goes by without Russians being in the top ten among my 5000+ weekly readers. Some news therefore for my Russian readers: мой сын имеет русский друг. My son has a Russian friend. Her name is Lina. In fact she will be paying a flying visit to Moscow later in the month. You may click on the photo to enlarge. OBSERVATION: Girlfriends are commonplace, unless you received last instructions from your late mother, took exceptional and prayerful care, and first made a move in your thirtieth year.
