We don't love Russia for nothing!

Nope! Our long-standing interest in Fyo's motherland has finally served a purpose: Matt was put in charge of painting the set of Fiddler on the Roof! It turned out amazingly (as you can see on the left, right?) Those nicely weathered floorboards, the walls, the windows, the roofs (oh the roofs!) -- all that was done by my clever Matthew. He made elaborate stencils of wood-grain which he used to spray paint panels of shingles (in different wood-tones), which were then cut out and layered. Though he is a goy, he had a lot of chutzpah and made a lovely haimish shtetl of which there was nothing to kvetch about! Thank you to our mispocha for attending!

I wonder if somebody broke into that house at 2 am if you would hear them screaming from outside?

Probably not a scream, just the whoosh of a soft pillow.
