Uninvited guests.

The morning stayed very dark for a long time today.

The morning stayed very dark for a long time today.

It seems we’re having an uninvited guest in the archipelago outside our capital and from what I’ve read it is a Russian submarine of some kind and it is also broken in some way. How do we know it’s a Russian submarine and how do we know it’s broken in some way You might wonder. It has been spotted and just before it was spotted an emergency call in Russian was sent on a special wavelength that Russians usually use in emergencies from that specific area (to a Russian base in Kaliningrad) and shortly afterwards another one was sent but it was encrypted.Β

A Russian cargo ship with the destination Denmark has also been staying on the same spot just outside Swedish territorial water for quite some time now, as soon as the news spread here the ship suddenly started moving south-east towards Russia but suddenly stopped not far from a Swedish island called Gotska SandΓΆn. No one here is surprised since they have been flying their fighter aircrafts in to our territory for quite some time now. The question is, is the submarine still at the same place or has it managed to escape? The best thing would be if they caught it so Russia would be embarrassed for a second time, the first time was when the submarine U137 ran aground just outside the Swedish city Karlskrona many years ago πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I’m not the least worried that Russia would decide to attack us, this is more likely to be some kind of training of Russian elite soldiers (Spetsnaz) or perhaps they are here just to record how battle ships from the Netherland sounds like, they have been here in a big navy exercise. But I have to admit that Russian politicians really don’t like us since we’ve been rather active in Ukraine during their problems. To attack us would be too much trouble for nothing really and when things like this happens we will be more prepared and most likely give the militaries much more money to build up our defence and things like this will more likely make us wanna join Nato.

 

I took some photos in the forest yesterday, good to have otherwise it would have been too dark and depressing in todays photos :-)

But we would most likely not notice much of it here in the village at the outskirts of the world, we are far too unimportant to see anything happen here πŸ™‚ We would most likely just still complain about the politicians and how much they ignore the countryside and that the taxes are too high no matter who’s in charge πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

The laundry is done and it’s time to make another pot of tea. We will either get nasty much rain or almost none at all, the predictions are very uncertain. No sun though, that’s the one thing they all agree on πŸ™‚ The hunters are out in the forest again but I have to say they give up rather quickly, we could walk out into the forest before noon yesterday and I guess it will be much the same today. Perhaps I’ll go out by myself again today to take more photos with my latest camera.

    • Hi Joyce!

      So right! So the best thing is to find it and humiliate them!

      Have a great day!

    • Hi Laurie!

      No they are never a good sign and now it seems to heat up a bit, a man dressed in black has been seen and photographed walking in the water not far from an island and our elite troups are now hunting him. The Russians denie of course but still one of their speacial boats is on its way towards Swedish territorial water. God knows what they will do if we actually capture the man and find the submarine πŸ™‚

      Have a great day!

    Hi Christer,
    Is that photo the light at the end of the tunnel? I hope so. πŸ™‚

    Uninvited Russian submarines are never good news. Hope nobody dies, though.

    The morning is still dingy here and the summer temperatures have gone away. I was out the door before 7AM because Piki Dog needed to be out for some reason which he promptly forgot as soon as he got out there. It was still dark. I fully intended to have breakfast as soon as we got back from our walk. That was two hours ago and I haven’t managed it yet. Fooling around with a new app on my Kindle Fire. Remembering things I need to replace and ordering them while I was online. Falling into Facebook time warp.

    There will be rain for us for most of this week, they say. That will bring down a lot of walnut leaves and maybe a lot of walnuts, too, if it’s windy. I like when they all come down more or less at once so I don’t have to clean it up more than once. πŸ™‚
    The crop is very good this year. Fortunately, I have a special tool for picking up the walnuts. A plastic stable fork known as a Great Fork. It’s normally used for picking horse poop out of a stall that has been bedded with shavings but it works very well on walnuts. They are much the same size as horse buns. I tell you this so that when your little tree gets big enough to bonk you on the head with falling nuts, you will know what to look for to make the yard work easier. It works well on snow and leaves, too. πŸ™‚

    Time for breakfast, for real this time. πŸ™‚
    Enjoy the day.

    • Hi Caryn!

      Which one is it You mean? the one that is almost totally black with just a shiny thing in the middle? I haven’t had a near death experience so it isn’t the light at the end of the tunnel πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ It’s a water drop πŸ™‚

      No they are never a good sign. Not it has become even more hot, a man dressed in black has been seen walking in shallow water some distance away from an island and he has also been photographed so now our elite troups are hunting him. This got even more interesting than I thought it would be πŸ™‚ The Russians deny anything but still, one of their special boats are heading towards Swedish territorial water in high speed now. It’s kind of stupid to start reacting like they do if they have nothing to do with it πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      I know exactly how it is sometimes, the dogs must go out but as soon as I open the door they turn around and walks in again πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ and if one is busy things tend to take longer than one planned and especially if one is online. It’s amazing how fast time pass when being online πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      I guess it will take eleven more years until I get a chance of getting any walnuts πŸ™‚ But with my luck that winter will be the worst we’ve had in ages so the tree freeze to death πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      Have a great day and enjoy breakfast πŸ™‚
      Christer.
