The local weather has been close to ideal.  Cool evenings and warm days in the mid-80s.  Now all we need is a little rain to wash the sky and water the lawn.

I don’t think anybody remembered Little Richard singing “Send Me Some Lovin’”, but it was and still is a monster ballad.  Never mind, it’s time for ‘Easy Monday’, where we all know all the songs (555).  “When you’re down and troubled, and you need some love and care, and nothing, nothing is going right.  Close your eyes and think of me, and soon I will be there, to brighten up even your darkest night.  You just call out my name…”  Hint: I don’t know if we need hints today.  

Today in Thailand (Feb. 12) is my birthday.  Yesterday we had a party, since Monday really isn’t a party day (555).  There were 28 adults, 3 small children, and 1 very small visiting dog.  Everybody had a good time.  The Wanderer brought over another of their outrageous chocolate cakes, and friends brought orchids and fruit.  The weather was perfect, and nobody in the neighborhood burned any trash, meaning the air was pleasant.  We discovered that some of our friends were actually friends with each other and we didn’t know.  That made for some nice surprises.  Lisa choreographed the event and Natcha and Cat helped make sure everything ran smoothly.  When it was over, there was lots of stuff left over.  Most of it consisting of things we don’t eat, so we gave it away.  It was a good day.

Today’s photos are from the party.  

Since Natcha and Gong worked so hard all day, we went out for dinner.  The closest place was The Wanderer so that’s what we did.  When we returned home we didn’t realize how tired we were.  It actually carried over into today.  We had no shopping to do so we just went to Work@Home for coffee.  

After wearing black for the year of mourning, most of my T-shirts are black.  The weather in the mornings isn’t always warm enough for a loose fitting shirt so T-shirts work best.  Having said all that, we went to Big C so I could get a few shirts with color.  We finished our morning in the street with lunch at Melt In Your Mouth.  Sitting outside with the river in front of us was very relaxing.  

Tomorrow we go to the ‘DMV’ to renew our licenses.  Here’s hoping we don’t have to take a written test or watch the rumored 1 hour movie (555).

Have a Great Week.
