The air was much cooler this morning. After an all night drizzle the air was clean and crisp, and gave us a hint of the cold season. Later it warmed up, and then in the late afternoon it rained.
The ‘Easy Monday’ song was “Somebody To Love” by Jefferson Airplane. Time now for a ‘Zany Day’ song. Who remembers this one?: “Bought myself an __ __ __ __ __ (Great big __ __ __ __ __). Put it on a shelf right above my bed (Great big __ __ __ __ __). Got down on my knees and began to pray (Great big __ __ __ __ __)
I said, __, tell me where’s my big foot May? (Great big __ __ __ __ __).” Hint: There is a statue involved. The group has brought us much laughter.
This morning we started at The Wanderer and then progressed to the mall. Our mission was to buy a special blouse for Lisa for the graduation in Bangkok. At the mall, the adventure began with lunch at S&P. Whenever menus get changed, the food, even if it’s the same dish, ends up being different. Today we lucked out and got good meals. We did a lot of walking, saw a lot of clothes, and finally found a beautiful blouse for the occasion. During our walking around, we discovered that the mall branch of the post office is gone. The renovations in the mall have closed many businesses. Also, at one of the temporary sales ‘events’ they actually had a portable dressing room. This is a big deal, since it’s hard to know if some things will fit if you can’t try them on.
Cat came over for dinner and we had a good time. She and Lisa ate while I was at my meeting, and then the three of us talked while I ate. As this was going on, Chopper was outside banging on the door and calling us. He was lonely and wanted to join the party. Lisa finally relented and let him into the kitchen and he calmed down. He never did stop trying to get upstairs though.
Today’s photos were taken this evening. In the first one, Chopper is clearly talking about going upstairs. In the second, he’s waiting in anticipation (555). The towels on the floor are for wet doggy feet.
Now it’s time to pack for the trip. It’s not a lot to do until you start doing it and then there are so many things to remember. Since we fly out early in the morning, it all has to get done tonight. This trip will be like a vacation. Our friends James and Nita are wonderful hosts and always have interesting things planned. Tomorrow afternoon we are scheduled for foot massages at very relaxing spa we experienced before. Stay tuned.
It’s going to be a Wacky Wednesday.
