There was a change in the weather today. This afternoon we got a big wind storm. A tiny bit of rain came, but dried as soon as it hit the hot ground. Wind and thunder continued to tease us. Around 5:15pm the lights went out. Flashlights and candles enabled Fone to cook dinner. We had just finished our candlelight dinner when the power came back and light rain began. Now we have the windows open, and we're enjoying the cool breeze.
The ‘Zany Day’ song was “Get Off of My Cloud” by The Rolling Stones. For ‘Old School Friday’ we travel way back in time to 1951. The artist had the ability to cry during a song and really sell it. Maybe some of our senior members will be inspired to write back. “I went walkin’ down by the river, feeling very sad inside. When all at once I saw in the sky, __ __ __ __ __ __.” Clue: A possible explanation for rain?
Our one trip outside the walls today was to Makro. That’s where I took the photo for the day. Sitting on top of a table with assorted fruit was a battery powered megaphone. It was playing a loop of a woman’s voice giving the prices for what we assumed was the products on the table. We’ve see this before in different departments. After about 2 minutes it becomes very annoying.
Neetchanan just turned 3 months old and already she is about to go on her second road trip. She and Natcha are going back to Mae Sai tomorrow for a wedding. We get little visits with her almost every day. Natcha starts back to work on Monday so we’ll probably get to see Neetchanan even more often. Gong also starts working at the house on Monday and may be doing some baby-sitting between yard jobs. Our little village is really maturing (555).
The heatwave we’ve been living with is the longest in 65 years. Let’s hope that the monsoon season that begins next month doesn’t set a record also. The whole region needs rain without flooding. Southeast Asia is very dry this year.
Have a Wonderful WeekEnd. Time for the ‘Funnies’. In case you’re interested, Formula One is in Russia this weekend. Zoom.
