It was First Bell in Lugansk yesterday… the Day of Knowledge… the first day of school (traditionally, on 1 September, except if it falls on the weekend). Here is one of the KPU Obkom* members with his wife and two granddaughters. Note that the girl who looks like the respective grandparent stands in front of them. I wonder… do their temperaments match their looks? Do people say, “You can tell that she’s X’s granddaughter… the apple sure didn’t fall far from the tree!” Perspirin’ minds wanna know.
