    Strange ways.

    It's life Jim, but not as we know it.
    After the Lao visa run, think I will have a number 0 hair cut, getting hot again.
    The 20 cent barber can't cut hair, as there are a couple of dead that have not been burned yet.
    Wedding down the street has to be postponed, Monks can't give blessings until the dead have been dealt with.
    Wife and kids head off to big wedding party, I say, I thought no wedding until the dead have been dealt with.
    Yes, but you can still have the party, I'll have another vodka and orange with no orange.

    ^ That's fcuk all. My kids go to school next week for Monday. No school Tuesday & Wednesday. My eldest (7) doesn't go to school on Thursday but does on Friday. Whereas my twins(5) go on Thursday but not Friday. They all go to the same school. Thai schools are a bollix. They couldn't organize a piss up in a brewery.

    Much too much time off.
    It's work [going to school] Dammit!


    'Tis wonder that they're "educated" at all - should be already suspicious of how their time is spent in attendance.

    Is it the same every week or just next week?

    If it's just next week, it could just be different schedules for their exams.

    Yes next week is exams but why can't the kids go to school the exams don't affect them. Or does it somehow?

    The school publishes their annual holiday list some 6 months after the start of the new term year. It never is complete and never includes this 'exam week' or 'Teachers Day', plus a few others. I've already posted on this. http://teakdoor.com/the-teakdoor-lou...-holidays.html (School fcuking holidays.)

    That's a wet season pastime, probably do some after song kran.

    As to the schools and attendance times, days etc you need ESP to follow what's going on.

    They can't even tell the theme for a school march until the day before never mind start time, meeting place.

    Was told this is the last day of school for my 2 on Wednesday, today school next week.

    Three days ago wife comes and asks,if her cousin could have the pig in the freezer, as they can't kill a pig tomorrow for funeral as something to do with Buddha.

    I say why they can't kill pig today then,looks of puzzlement on there faces,hmm we didn't think about that.off they go to kill pig

    The uncle went for cremation yesterday, head monk tells the family we won't be able to come after today as I'm going on holiday tomorrow, the elders and PYB go see him to ask him why he can't come for next three days to finish the proceedings,tells them he was going shopping

    Seems he was told to forget his shopping.
