We woke up to an almost cool morning.  There was heavy cloud cover; the kind that Daku likes.  We had a late afternoon rain with sunshine.  Somewhere there was a rainbow.

The ‘Zany Day’ song has a couple friends, but I know there must be a few more.  Here’s the second verse:
“And when he does his little rounds, ‘round the boutiques of London Town, eagerly pursuing all the latest fads and trends, ‘cause he’s a __ __ __ __.”  Clue:  Two brothers ‘fronted’ this band.  Some might say they were well respected men.

This morning we met Sandy and Ady at The Wanderer for coffee and snacks.  It was our last time hanging out with them.  Later this month they will leave Thailand for a visit in Israel and then settle in Cape Town, South Africa.  We covered a lot of territory in our visit.  Ady and I have very stimulating conversations that I will miss. 

Today’s photo was taken this morning at The Wanderer.  When is a rock more than a rock?  When it’s covered with ferns and moss and becomes a work of art.

After lunch, just as we were settling into our nap, the repair techs from True TV arrived.  That meant we had to sit up, pretend to be alert, and wait while they diagnosed the problem.  They found the problem and fixed it though I don’t know what it was.  The main thing is we get to see the semi-finals and the finals of the U.S. Open.  I mean, some things are important (555).  We also discovered that an equestrian meet from Spruce Meadows in Canada is going to be televised.  We used to watch those all the time, back in the days in the States, when we had a giant analog dish. 

The excavation down the road is still a mystery.  There is a giant mound of small boulders by the side of the road leading to the river.  There is another pile of rocks on that end.  Right at the entrance they have made a bed of rocks, like pavement.  I guess this will help the trucks when it’s rainy.  Something’s coming.

Have a Thrilling Thursday.
