The weather in Chiang Rai is hot.  Today it was 92, and it’s going up to 102 on Saturday.  Nights are in the low 70s, so we just might be able to get back in the pool by the weekend.  

The ‘Easy Monday’ song was at the front of many minds.  “Well, she looked at me and I, I could see, that before too long I’d fall in love with her.  She wouldn’t dance with another (Woo) When __ __ __ __ __ __.”  Hint:  If you’re at a dance and you’re not dancing or sitting, you’re probably doing what?  

This morning Daku got a bath.  He did not like his bath.  He made terrible, distressed faces.  Now he smells nice.  The end.

We are slowly figuring out how to deal with Chopper and his obsession with biting Daku.  When Daku needs alone time in the yard, the little dog either goes in his pen, which he hates when the gate is locked, or he goes in the kitchen and hangs out with Natcha.  After breakfast we shuffle the dogs so they don’t play.  Daku gets sick if he’s too active after eating.  Life is not without it’s complicated moments.

Chivit Tamma Da was our coffee stop today.  It was quiet by the river and the clean air was a treat.  The post office has little pink slips that they leave if we’re not home and something has to be signed.  We never know what it is until we get there.  Today we got such a slip and drove up to Ban Du village to check on our prize (555).  Of the two items, the one that needed the signature was not worth the trip.  Oh well.  We noticed heavy traffic on our return route so we took a scenic alternate route back to The Wanderer for lunch with our friend Atom.

Lunch was fun, hearing stories about Atom’s recent trip to Japan and sharing our trip to Perth, etc.  She lived in Japan and studied language for 6 months.  She became quite familiar with the various districts of Tokyo, the trains, and places to shop.  We had decided that if we ever go to Japan, she will go with us as our guide.  

Today’s photo is another from ‘Yard Work’.  Notice the determination.  

Have a Happy Tuesday.
