At three in the morning there was a queue (still or, perhaps, already) at Three Taps.
I went to another water spring. There also was a queue but smaller – about ten to fifteen men. I brought home four pails.
After lunch I whetted our kitchen knives with the hand-mill borrowed from Sashic. Sahtik was helping me.
Reading from Montaigne proved that there is nothing new under the moon of this loony world.
I literally quote him,
The war was raging around. Going to bed at night we didn't know if we were to wake up alive next morning."The passage was written four and a half centuries ago and up till now hasn't lost a single grain of its actual applicability.
We had no pencil game to punish Roozahna for her unruliness.
I played backgammon with Sahtik.
It's half past eight p.m. The kids are sent to their cots.
Good night to babes and adults alike.
