Russian Phrase-A-Day!

Every day this week I've been posting a Russian phrase from a 1960 phrasebook (English-Russian Phrase-Book (A Pocket Interpreter), 5th ed., compiled by S.V. Neverov) by a Soviet publishing house. Next week, Matt will post a Russian phrase-a-day from a 1963 American phrasebook. This is both enlightening and amusing in its look at the dangers of nostalgia. Or something like that.
