The Russian cartoon, Masha and the Bear, is tremendously popular here. My granddaughter adores it, and has a Masha doll and the Bear. To quote Wikipedia:
"Masha is depicted as a precocious, happy, kind, and mischievous little girl, while the bear is a fatherly retired circus performer that tries to keep Masha out of trouble but often ends up the unintended victim of her mischief. There are a number of supporting characters in the series, including Masha's cousin, a penguin adopted by the Bear, a young panda cub who is the Bear's cousin, a tiger that worked with the bear in the circus, and a female bear that is the object of the bear's affections, along with a rabbit, squirrels and hedgehogs, two wolves who live near the bear's house, and a pig, goat, and dog who live in Masha's front yard."
Have a look at this cute video.

The population of Belgrade's mascot, the sparrow, has been declining, due to too many pigeons and crows, which overpower the little guys in a struggle for food.
Recently in Tasmajdan Park these sparrow houses were placed in several trees. At least the sparrows won't have to hustle for housing; tiny holes!

Two males and a female duck paddle their way through a reflection from a floating restaurant on the Sava river in Belgrade.

Not a real comet, but a jet plane, I think, or perhaps I've spotted a UFO and didn't know it.
I opted to say it was a comet, since today is Friday the 13th... Historically, comets were thought to be harbingers of bad luck. For example, the Bayeux Tapestry shows a comet when Harold of Essex snatched the English throne from William of Normandy, soon to be known as The Conqueror.
Are you superstitious? Will you be cautious today?

When I was a child, we called the men who came to pick up the garbage 'garbage men,' a term which makes me cringe now. 'Sanitation' worker sounds too pretentious, so I've settled for 'trash collector,' hoping that won't sound like it's someone who actually makes a collection of trash. :-0

I showed you this bakery nearly three years ago. It now seems as if it's on its way out....note the supports on the right.
When I uploaded the photo, I could read the sign on the door, which reads, "Being renovated." I hope so, and if they do, that they will keep the character and old charm. Too often I've noticed that 'renovation' ends up meaning 'condemned' here....

This old sculpture still stands on a facade of a building in an old Belgrade neighborhood. The bright yellow wall and the colorful signs of the health food store really stand out.
When I uploaded this photo, I noticed the ashtray on the shelf above the figure's head. Guess people in the health food store smoke.
This post is a double-header, since I am using this photo for SKYWATCH and for James' WEEKEND REFLECTIONS. Here we see the reflectio...
