Very nice words HP.

 

Phon Phisai I know it quite well. Very nice area indeed. The river is not too wide there so the water absolutely tonks through.

 

Well, I am not sure of 'peace and calm', but at least I've not had a cat thrown at me for some time. But! Have to take it in my stride. A lot of the time humour sees me through. The wife was so angry with me that she was going to get young boys to kill me as I slept. "Young boys". I said; "send young girls and let me die happy."

 

The wife didn't have a happy childhood. Her parents sold her a few times, when she was very young; but she kept being brought back. She left school at 12 (everyone did, unless going onto higher education). And her older brothers would beat her when she wouldn't bring in the buffaloes during thunderstorms.

 

Dear, dear, dear. Wouldn't want to live anywhere else though. Love Isaan.

Man, the river flowing there is awesome !!

Before I saw it I had dreams of swimming it... until I saw how wide and strong it flowed ! 😄

 

My wife also deserted school at a similar age so not well schooled but certainly no buffalo... except on occasion... 😎


We've met an Older thai lady who is our Neighbour here in outer Darwin, she told us of being sold as a child and not actually knowing her birthday and such, very sad but she keeps going on growing and selling eggplant and chilies at the local markets.

 

Issan is beautiful in its way, I’d prefer coast personally but that’s all a long way off...

1986 was a decent season when the club attained a third spot, but for many supporters the biggie was 1999. Winning the Intertoto Cup (beating Metz) and finishing fifth in the EPL. So two golden years. And, I was there when we pummeled Leeds 7-0 at the Boleyn a few years ago.

Apologies for the sad emoji on the quoted post Owl but i was sad to see you using the font again, my failing eyesight means I have to zoom in to read .

If that humiliation wasn’t enough i then had to read about my team having a bad day ( 🙄 ) a few years ago !!, i was only 5 at the time so thankful I don’t remember the “ bad day “.

 

disgruntled Leeds fan.

Owl, I thought that the last time you used that font you decided that you needed it to be 1-2 points larger in future...?

if we do not learn from our past we are doomed to repeat our mistakes... 😄😄
