Day Two Hundred Thirty-Eight

Russia RU-555046 received 09-19-2011

Notes: The little yellow ball smiling at the bear is Kolobok.  Kolobok is a pastry who became animated and ran away from his parents (or possibly grandparents).  Along the way, he encountered a bear, a rabbit, and a wolf who all wanted to eat him, but he outsmarted all of them and sang about it.  He finally encountered a fox, who praised Kolobok's singing, distracting Kolobok and allowing the fox to catch and eat him.  Not a very pleasant fairy tale, but then again, not many of them are!!
