Kiskassa May-day fun


not a sunny day, but not cold and the pomised rain did not (quite) materialised. The gulyas soup was very nice out of the cauldron, especially as we did not have to put in the work - we had the pensioner's team product, of course, that won first prize. Later, after the Leicester-MU match, Dodi and Timi had a look of the little ducklings, and liked them of course and followed the usual jamming - Dodi and Alan guitaring, Timi singing, I'm doing crosswords in the next room and shouting translations as necessary.

ps: surprise ducklings!


yes, the escapee flyer mummy duck appeared today with 11 beautiful day-old ducklings in toe! They must have come down from the loft, as one duckling was rescued from the ground-up grain drum, where it could only got to from above. Anyway, we are all getting our calm back after catching and cutting the fly-feathers from mummy, catching the rest and putting them hopefully safe, see pic. Dodi doesn't know yet, but we hope to re-unite them with the rest there - in their new home in Pecsdevecser. You try to reduce your stock, and this is what happens!!

still here


Dodi's kite (which was flying after our outside table-tennis session was disrupted by strong wind); Kiskassa fitness room (inside table tennis) ; front flowers, our new dinky bbq not yet tried, waiting for Drew; weird Black-Forest ham or bacon bit we were given by the German lady who materialised yesterday and took no for an answer and stayed (very happily) in not-cleaned and freezing cold guest house and is coming back again next week; the updated spring front view, the little flower insisting growing from stone. Some supermarket items (british marmalade flavoured yoghurt) ; And whatever I've forgotten. Dilemma: are we going to the Kiskassa May-Day do with free food, drink and table tennis competition, and cover if the prognosticated rains come, or are we going to the first ever Pecsdevecser lake-side pick-nick, with our own food and getting wet... Well, I think we have to decide on the day. Also in a small Siklos butique we bought daddy a suit and me a nice suit-jacket, so we can be elegant, if we really really want to. All Hungarian made, as we found out to our surprise, we were sure it must have been Chinese for the price. I like little shops like that where you are the centre of attention of the sole owner, who's dying of boredom anyway.

full april bloom


start with Kiskassa updates - the Trees That Alan planted in full bloom (black cherry and plum) - from random saplings; the raspberry growing fast, new tulips, new lilac; the hole that is not a hole anymore; also the trip to meet Szonya and Drew, and a bbq party attended by all at Juci's, more of the Pecs station from outside, also sitting at Alan's fav cafe opp the synagogue, have I forgotten anything?
