Olga Nicholaievna / New Monument to Olga Nikolaevna
« on: November 07, 2018, 08:27:36 PM »
"On 24th October, a monument to Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna (1895-1918), the eldest daughter of Emperor Nicholas II was established in the Russian city of Novy Oskol, situated 90 kilometers northeast of Belgorod.
Founded in 1905, the school was then named Her Imperial Highness Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna Women’s High School. Today, the oldest educational institution in the city, is simply referred to as Olginskaya High School. Funds for the construction of the educational institution were donated by the grand duchess herself."

I purchased this Halloween cat that makes hissing sounds when you push the button.  The first time I tried it, Tatiana came running into the room.  I guess she thought there was another cat in the apartment!

That is really kind of precious!

Tatiana got another clean bill of health from the vet.

Not bad for a seven year old kitty.

Glad to hear that Tatiana is doing well, Tim! 

Here is a recent photo of my Charlotte:
