bear and blackieWell,we decided that today would be a no work day.All the contracters are finished and Yai(brother Noi)and i will finish the painting hopefully soon,were upto 40 gallons of paint and i am getting sick of it.The angles on the eaves of the hopuses is like an “A” frame so you can imagine getting up inside painting in this heat,not the best.Had a good one,the porch area the cieling is about 20 feet,looked and looked for a scaffold,well,it was rickity,anyhow,I’m way up there and brother says turn the fan off,but so hot I said when I move it,well. forgot to turn the fan off and got clipped on the fore arm,nice divot for you golfers out there,six stiches at the clinic and what  a honey the doctor,i told her too….and went back to work…

So,holiday morning there’s this honking at the gate,we’re just getting up after a bit of wine the night before,still with me,and it’s Nois’ brother with friends at 6 in the morning.He manages a club/disco in Bangkok and has showed up with friends and their on a party,I figure 2 hour drive from Bangkok puts themn leaving the club around 4 am.So,it’s brother,2 rich looking thai bachelors and a movie star(thailand)and another lady’s like let’s go to the market,so off we go,buy deer,they farm it here,and about 10 kilos of the biggest shrimp,and all the salad fixings,Som Tam(papaya salad).

The “Q” was going and we had a feast around mid-morning,I even called in recruits….After all that everyone kinda laid back and szoozed and then split in a bout 2 hours,it was ao much fun…

So,I’m just waiting for Matt to pick us up and off to Hue Hin, a few hours away on the beach,some chill timne and listen to the waves,been awhile and with all the work we need a change.

All in all it was quite the job,all this reno and updating.It was a real experince dealing with these people.It’s hard to raise your temper,they don’;t go for it,I started to chew out the electric guy and he was bummed out after and i got shit from Noi,different way of dealing with problems I still have sa problem with,always learning.I’m real happy with the new tile work,brightens it up,there was too much black and in the showerarea looks shitty…the urinals are great,a must in a beer drinking group…off to the beach…
