Very nice!!!
We had a tree ages ago, but my dad cut it. I think because it got some sort of disease, can't remember.

There was also this place in the countryside, where we used to go in summer when we were kids.
The owner of this house let us "steal" his sour cherries as he and his family didn't bother eating them.
He had this beautiful shepherd dog, always chained there on a long cable. He was the worst guard dog ever.
In fact he would just join us near the tree and eat the cherries.

Edit: I found the super dangerous guard dog

I love his dog. Man's best friend

My grandmother had cherry trees and I used to climb and eat the fruit when I was 6-7 years old. She didn't have any dogs to guard them, but a turkey Have you even been chased by a mad turkey?

One of our sour cherry trees, well, exactly the one from which I picked that bowl, has some disease as well. We have 4 more

Ah yes, we also have sour cherry liqueur. It the best alcohol thing I ever tasted, also with the cherries you can eat. My parents used to give me the cherries from the liqueur when I was little... this turned me into the alcoholic I am today

Posting some photos soon with the two Ukrainian heaters... both are leaking, but it's not the heaters, just some fittings that were done unprofessionally Repairman for a few days

Very weak Austrian heater goes out

 

High quality Ukrainian heaters have arrived! This one looks able enough to heat the whole house

@ JACOBSTON

I had already posted these photos in 2011, during forest fires in front of my home. I don’t know if Jacobston had seen them at the time. Thank you to the Canadairs and their pilots.

The super scooper! 

It takes a lot of the right stuff to fly one of those. Low-level flying through smoke and water-bombing a relatively small target, then skimming the water accurately enough to fill the 6000 litre water tank and go right back into the smoke again. My hat's off to each and every one of those pilots!
