This morning the yard was relatively dry.  Mr. Rain came in early afternoon.  It was brief, but powerful.  There was lots of sprinkling after that.  Not really what you’d call a stormy day, just ‘some rain’.

‘Easy Monday’ was The Beatles singing “All You Need Is Love”.  See, I told you, you knew it.  ‘Zany Day’ is next:
“They seek him here, they seek him there, his clothes are loud, but never square.  It will make or break him so he’s got to buy the best, ‘cause he’s a __ __ __ __.  Hint:  It’s mid-60s from across the pond.  Band had lots of ‘kinky’ songs. 

We went on a hunt for fiber-board this morning.  Ultimately, we found everything but what we wanted.  At Global House we did see lots of interesting things so the morning wasn’t a total waste (555). 

The big adventure today was our trip to Immigration to renew our visas.  On our way, we stopped at The Wanderer for coffee.  Khun Noot had called us earlier and said she made some whole wheat bread for us using only healthy ingredients, meaning no milk, butter, sugar, or soy.  When we arrived she held out a whole loaf of the bread and included a jar of jam for good measure.  So thoughtful.  We’re always discussing things she could bake that we could eat so she tries different recipes.  After our coffee stop we went to immigration.  Things were going great until they saw the date on a document from our consulate regarding Social Security.  It was over 6 months old, which means we have to get another one.  Monday we will travel to Chiang Mai for a Tuesday appointment with the US Consulate for a new document.  Lovin’ the red tape.

This morning, during our ‘yard walk’, I glanced up and noticed some green above the roof line.  A second look revealed a tall stalk of grass growing out of the roof.  What?  A picture is worth….

This evening Natcha and Neechanon came over while I was finishing my dinner.  Neechanon inched her way over to the stairs and stayed at the lower steps for a long time.  Then she made her move, climbing a few and looking back.  Eventually she had us all upstairs.  Something different happened this time.  She started across the room and then turned and ran to Natcha.  We didn’t know what was wrong until Natcha explained that Neechanon was reacting to the wooden Geko we have on the wall.  There is a real Tokay, a large variety of Geko, that was in their house and scared Neechanon.  Lisa took our Geko off the wall and that seemed to calm Neechanon down.  She went back to her circuit of things to do upstairs and was happy.

It feels like a Wacky Wednesday.
