Friday Funnies


I’m happy to say that we had another fairly beautiful day in Chiang Rai.  It was nice to have the windows open last night.  It got hot again today, but that’s to be expected, it’s Thailand.

The ‘Zany Day’ song was “We Gotta Get You A Woman” by Todd Rundgren.  ‘Old School Friday’ is one that we’ve hummed before.  Even if you don’t know the group, the title of the song will do.  “My love must be some kind of blind love, I can’t see anyone but you.  Are the stars out tonight?  I don’t know if it’s cloudy or bright.  __ __ __ __ __ __, dear…”  Clue: A standard that became an R&B hit by a group named after a large pink bird.  Easy. 

This was what might be called a ‘laid back Friday’.  It started out like any other day, with the feeding of the dogs.  Lisa discovered that Chopper would eat as long as it was just dry kibble, no veggies and no extras.  He still wanted to be fed by hand, but at least he ate.  The mornings always reveal what the puppy does overnight.  One of my ‘outdoor’ shoes was in his bed, and one of Neechanon’s plastic blocks was in the front yard.  He knows how to play by himself.

We met our friend John at Paam Sai-Aua for coffee.  That’s the new wooden place I showed you a few weeks ago.  He and Aey are going on the trip to Greece and we got to hear about the preparations, and fill him in on our Australian adventure.  

Neechanon has been getting bike-riding lessons from Gong.  She still doesn’t get the whole thing, but she knows her feet are supposed to go on the pedals, but not much after that.  Gong pushes her around and it’s just a matter of time before she’ll be buzzing around the driveway.  Whenever her little cousin comes over and rides the bike I’m sure it increases the motivation to master this machine.  

Chiang Rai is getting new pavement in some of the busiest parts of town and it’s creating some interesting traffic.  The main north/south thoroughfare is being blocked in one direction.  This has led to alternate routes becoming clogged.  One of those routes is the road past the government hospital.  We’re still trying to figure out what the ambulance drivers are doing when it’s bumper-to-bumper.  Hmm.

Tomorrow we begin distributing the posters for Lisa’s May 4 exhibit at 9 Art Gallery.  We’ll also drive out to the countryside to deliver two more works for framing.  It should all look nice and fresh after the rains.  

It’s going to be an art weekend.  Saturday night there’s an opening at ArtBridge, and Sunday afternoon there’s an opening at 9 Art.  

Today’s photo is from the Busselton Jetty, Australia.  It’s a lot to remember, pay close attention (555).

Have a Wonderful WeekEnd.   Stay tuned for the ‘Funnies’ and set your DVR or VCR for the Formula One Gran Prix from Bahrain.
