I have a very nice Lady friend who lives in that region. We are not married, But she was my Pool Shooting Buddy till her Father and Brother passed and she returned to help Mother run the farm. I contribute approx 250,000 THB a year to help her and her Mother, as I promised her Father before he passed. Both died from Cancer due to the Fluke worms in the fresh water fish they eat raw.

With their Rice being flooded about everyother year in that region they need help from time to time.

It also keeps the traffic cops happy pulling me over for imagined offenses.

When I first met my wife she was 27 and couldn't drive a 10 penny nail into a piece of cornbread.

She's a pretty good driver now. I just sit in the back & wish her luck.
