    All you mothers! ##@!

    Just wanted to say happy mothers day to all you mothers around the world. Wish them well. Mine has been pushing up daisies for a long time. It's a calling we are all entitled too at some point in our lives.







    Peace out..........................the fish.

    Happy Mother's day! celebrated ours yesterday - with me Nan/Mum...

    Always had a umm shall we say, rocky relationship with my mum - but even I must admit, she's mellowing/softening with age..

    Yesterday was the first time she has hugged me since I was a child, I suppose our impending departure to Japan, spiked her motherly instincts... I won't mention what she whispered to me as she kissed my cheek, but was errr umm touching... (vomit emoji)...

    Anyway... just friendly advice from dick, don't neglect you mum/gran *family* while you are living your adventure in a foreign land... tell them how much you love them, because they can be here one moment, then gone the next...

    I'm sure many of you can relate... God bless all Mums (here and departed)..

    Cheers, fish...Repeating an earlier post:

    “Now there is one thing I can tell you: you will enjoy certain pleasures you would not fathom now. When you still had your mother you often thought of the days when you would have her no longer. Now you will often think of days past when you had her. When you are used to this horrible thing that they will forever be cast into the past, then you will gently feel her revive, returning to take her place, her entire place, beside you. At the present time, this is not yet possible. Let yourself be inert, wait till the incomprehensible power ... that has broken you restores you a little, I say a little, for henceforth you will always keep something broken about you. Tell yourself this, too, for it is a kind of pleasure to know that you will never love less, that you will never be consoled, that you will constantly remember more and more.”

    ― Marcel Proust

    Glad you got a hug and things are mellowing for you NZDICK.

    BB that is a hell of a passage but a bit deep for say .............the fish.

    Cheers peeps, I just came back from Kohls where I single handedly tried to raise the stock valuation. Three items for miss fish, a watch, pendant and bracelet. Also cause Im such a nice guy ten pendants to give away next time in Laos. Miss fish is happy again. Lets see how long that lasts.

    Sometimes she can be a real mother to get along with.

    She did let me pick up a bottle of Bulleit Bourbon so I've got that to look forward to.

    So here's to all you other mothers out there.

    Peace out...the fish.

    Miss fish says she is so happy that I gave her a gift for being the mother of our child and is also happy we plan to give gifts to her family back home. Mainly her nieces. Her brother has five beautiful girls.

    It's not mother's day in Thailand nor my original country, Scotland.

    Stop making me panic that I've forgotten!

    Is it not weather you have forgotten your mother rather than your mother has forgotten you.

    Give her a call before the forget me knot slips on.......or any other for that matter.


    Stay off the rails of the crazy train..........................the fish.
