We had a steady, persistent rain all night and most of the day.  Not enough to make lakes in the yard, but everything stayed wet.  Plant life is happy.

The ‘Easy Monday’ song was “What’s Your Name” by Don & Juan.  Here’s a ‘Zany Day’ tune you might know:  “It was 12:00 o’clock at night, you walk out the door.  You told me baby, you were going to the drug store.  Well, in my mind, I knew you were lying.  The drug store closed at a quarter to nine.  I saw you kissing Jimmy across the fence, I heard you tellin’ Jimmy I ain’t got no sense.  The way you’ve been acting is such a drag.  You done put me in a __ __.”
Hint:  Title was a commonly used term to describe being duped, hood-winked, scammed, etc.

The steady rain was kind enough to give us a window big enough to load the van and Gong’s pick-up truck and take Lisa’s exhibit to the gallery.  That was the biggest nagging thought all last night.  There were only two pieces that were too big for the van, but they did just fine wrapped in plastic.  Vocabulary alert: Looked up the word ‘plastic’ in Thai and discovered it’s pronounced ‘plasatic’.  An ’S’ followed by another consonant doesn’t happen in Thai, so words like  bridge, which is spelled ‘span’ in Thai, are pronounced ‘sapan’.  Confused?  Lesson over.
The morning and early afternoon went by very slowly for Lisa.  All of her work was at the gallery, being arranged and hung by Khun Sompong, without her presence.  As he told us, ‘This is my work’.  Basically, that meant ‘let me do my thing’.  We did and when we returned, it was brilliant.  There was a flow to the progression of the art, there were groups of ‘family members’, and special places for special pieces.  We watched him do this at Lisa’s ArtBridge exhibit and it was like watching a dance.  Tonight the mind can rest.

One mind that won’t be resting is Neechanon’s.  Today Gong brought home a little trampoline.  It’s just big enough for her to bounce around, and low enough to keep her safe.  She loves to jump and it’s a great thing for her to do during the storms. 

Today’s photo is another example of the persistence of nature.

It’s gonna be a Wacky Wednesday.
