wish we could get a downpour in my neck of the woods in Isan, my drinking water (rain water) is running out.

I am in Jomtien, and it's dry here as well. Can't remember the last time it rained during the day.

Seems like Rooster has joined the rest of us "Curmudgeons" ... First article of his in a long time that hasn't mocked his readers

That's true. Why you ask that?

It loses something when you need to explain. You said:

Just my alleged sense of humour.

Thailand,s biggest enemy is the disgusting attitude of the greeting non smiling faces of the morons at immigration desks in the airport ! They say that the most terrifying thing in the world is ignorance in action, but here we have ignorance in action plus total omnipotence, much scarier by far ! They should all be fired, and replaced by caring souls that realize there is no greater asset than any tourist who comes here with the object of having a good time and spending money 🙂

Immigration officers all over the world can appear a but gruff. I find if you smile and give them a cheery greeting you often get one in return. Don't overdo it though.....they might think you have something to hide...

From the comments, it would appear that many of the writers are not familiar with Latin and put their own interpretation on the language.  The expression used by Rooster, "Annus Horribilis", has nothing to do with any part of the body, human or not.  In fact, it is translated into English as "The year is horrible", and both Queen Elizabeth and Rooster where correct when using that expression.

'nuf sed.
