We had another ‘picture perfect’ day here in Chiang Rai. It looks like the rain has left the area.
The ‘Zany Day’ song was “Hotel California” by The Eagles. It’s time for another episode of ‘Old School Friday’. “Riding along in my automobile, my baby beside me at the wheel. I stole a kiss at the turn of a mile. My curiosity running wild. Cruisin’ and and playin’ the radio, with __ __ __ __ __.” Hint: I wonder if that was Maybellene by his side. Riding for the sake of riding. Oh yeah.
This morning we went to Central Plaza Mall for coffee and a few items. We got there about 15 minutes before opening and it looked like the whole town was there. We realized it was because of the parking problem. Folks decided to go early to get one of the treasured spots on the main lot. On our walk to Starbuck’s we passed a tent. As we got closer I saw a boxing ring inside. Hmm, so this was where the big Thai boxing match was to be held. We’ve seen signs around town, but didn’t know the location. Based on what I saw, there won’t be enough chairs. Oh well, they’ll probably have a big screen inside for the overflow. There were tons of people in ‘our’ Starbuck’s and we had to wait for our order. Inside the mall we spotted a group of ‘Pretties’ in red tones and asked if we could take their photos. Below is the result. In the second photo, Lisa is showing them how the pics came out. We don’t know what they were promoting, but they were sure to attract a crowd.
Around town people are gearing up for the Cold Season. The first signs of the seasonal change are the roadside vendors selling warm jackets and sweaters. It’s used clothing and is sometimes kept for the cold months and then discarded or passed on. There is no need for a warm jacket most of the year. I remember buying a garment during our first year, a light sweater for cool mornings. That was before it really got cold. It’s almost that time of year when things in the closet change positions and the warm things come to the front (555).
This afternoon Chopper got out of the yard. We think he was just waiting for the right opportunity to make his move. The gate opened for the family to leave and he raced out. Someplace down the road, he attacked a duck. The owner hit him just as Gong arrived. He had to pay the man for the duck. Maybe they’ll remember to secure Chopper before opening the gate. So ends another episode of Wild Kingdom.
Have a Wonderful WeekEnd. The ‘Funnies’ are coming. Formula 1 is in Texas this time. Zoom!
