The weather in a word: HOT. The weather in two words: Very Hot.
The ‘Easy Monday’ song was “We Are The Champions” by Queen. Let’s see if you know this ‘Zany Day’ silliness.
“I remember when rock was young, me and Suzie had so much fun, holding hands and skimming stones. Had an old gold Chevy and a place of my own. But the biggest kick I ever got, was doing a thing called the __ __. While other kids were rocking ‘round the clock, we were hopping and a bopping to the __ __.” Clue: Song about a dance.
Last night we got a message from our good friend Irene, who visited us 4 years ago. She was in Bangkok with her friend Donna and they were thinking of coming to Chiang Rai for the day. They arrived this morning and we had a very full day visiting a few special places. From the airport we drove up to Doy Din Dang for coffee/tea and communing with nature. There was a gift shop involved (555). Then we drove back into town for lunch at The Wanderer. Lots of picture taking and introducing them to friends who were also there. Next stop was 9 Art to see Lisa’s exhibit. At the Big Brown House we slowed down for a much needed rest. They didn’t realize that Mr. Lag was in the house. Chivit Tamma Da was our next place to visit. More photo taking and some exotic juices and conversation with the owner. Next stop, the Night Bazaar for dinner and shopping. After that, we got them to the airport in plenty of time to prepare for their flight back to Bangkok. Whew!
While we were gone the workers finished the drain tanks in both yards. We learned that the reason they didn’t return on Tuesday was that Monday wore them out. They were tired. I totally understand, given the temperatures they endured.
Today’s photo was taken this morning in the front yard. Chopper and I were on ‘patrol’ and what young boy can resist a mound of dirt?
During our day, moving around Chiang Rai and being asked questions about our lives, I became very appreciative and grateful for what we have.
This could be a Wacky Wednesday.
