Viran the thief.
When I moved here I had a neighbor that loved Viran more than anything and all summer she was just as much over to him as she was here at home. No matter what she did he just laughed and said that she was wonderful. He had his own welding firm and so skillful that he had work all over the country. That meant that he sometimes worked way in to the forest where there were no place to eat when he was hungry. So every now and again he made his own lunch boxes because there are always a micro somewhere close. The boxes he used had the lid attached to the bottom part, so one just flipped it open.
So one Sunday he stood in his kitchen making dinner for three days and like always Viran came in for a visit. He was only going to fry the potatoes and then he would be able to go away. He told me he had been talking to Viran ad she had been standing just behind him all the time. He gave her a treat and off she went happy as ever. During those few seconds he had been looking for the treat Viran had quickly moved to the table where the lunch boxes stood, flipped the lid and taken everything in them 🙂 🙂 I guess that the one hiring him had to pay extra for petrol that time because he had to drive 20 km (12,5 miles) to the closest fast food place to get something to eat those days 🙂 🙂
Just a couple of weeks later he once again was making new lunch boxes and this time he was prepared for how quickly Viran could be. The lunch boxes were placed that high so she couldn’t reach them without making lots of noise. He stood there and talked with her while frying the sausages he was going to have the coming days. He looked some towards his left side to give Viran her treat.
I was standing in my garden doing something that I can´t remember but suddenly I heard this loud laughter from my neighbor and I heard him say to Viran”You are just wonderfully amazing”. It turns out that during that second hee looked away Viran had stood up on her back legs taking all sausages at the same time and swallowed them whole directly from the frying pan 🙂 🙂 🙂 It is a miracle she didn’t scald herself doing that. She got her treat anyway 🙂
Another time she went over to the neighbor closest to the bog, it was rather late and quite dark outside. By that time they too had a rather big black dog and they had opened the door to let him in just before they were going to sleep. They just couldn’t understand what had flown in to him. He ran around the whole house, ate all dog and cat food he could find and just behaved very strange. So they turned on the lamps in the house and realized that it wasn’t their dog but Viran instead, their dog sat on the porch looking sad wanting to come in 🙂
They told me the story next morning laughing rather much and I could tell something more to them. It seems when they let Viran out again she stole a hair brush and a comb on her way out. I found them under my pillow that evening 🙂 🙂 and I di wonder where they came from 🙂 They never wanted them back though 🙂 🙂
It is a cloudy and foggy/hazy day here today. The sun shines through it now and again but it is a lost battle for it. The hunters are out in the forest but so far no sound from any rifle. I doubt they will stay out for long though, they come late and go home early, this is a fairly safe place for most wildlife 🙂
Have a great day!
