    Good pooch.

    We had a big fkr of a rat snake in the garden recently. Came in through the from hedge and my dogs ragged it around a little. It was fast as hell but made it back to the hedge until the council came and dealt with it. We weren’t home at the time but the security got on the phone and called it in.

    Looks like an Oriental rat snake. Mine I think was a Keeled rat snake and much smaller than yours. They can get fairly large, 2+ metres. Mendip caught a big one some time back, I think that was a rat snake.

    Nice pic. Robins can be quite bold, more so in the winter when foos is scarce. I have had that classic experience digging an English garden in winter and turning to see a robin on the fork handle within touching distance, looking over the dug earth. They add a splash of colour to the winter.

    Gluay Hom Thong or Hom Kiao ?
    If it’s Hom Thong, then it’s the one they sell in 7/11 or in packets of 4 at Lotus, similar to Cavendish bananas.

    Busy day today. Rat snake this morning then this afternoon watching the procession the dog starts up again, the gf jumps off the sofa and it's the Tree snake back, again. She isn't keen on snakes, especially when they are sharing the sofa.

    ^ And who says Isaan is boring!

    I found half a red-necked chequered keelback in the garden yesterday... Yogi had beaten me to it. I didn't really see the point in taking a photo.

    Well with all this rain, my tortoises are in heaven. They can't eat enough grass.

    I found the Golden tree snake dead on the lawn yesterday. No idea what happened to it. It was a pest in the house but I miss it now it's gone.

    I didn't know that tortoises could eat grass. We had a much smaller tortoise in England, it is about 20 now and lives at my daughter's home. It has never eaten grass although it loves dandelions. A friend had one that adored banana but ours was never interested. Same thing with carrot, other animals would eat it and ours never has. Fussy beast.

    Well they are herbivores with an occasional insect if available. Mine are constantly grazing and with the rain and on and off sun the grass is plentiful all over the compound. They are on their own. They really like Mulberry leaves best along with Malaysian grass and LeeLawadee flowers

    The gf says Hom Thong. They were delicious. I counted approx. 50 bananas from one tree. So you have maybe a week to use up 50 bananas. We shared with friends and family, and the gf has mastered banana bread.

    The late afternoon sun glancing off the bursting blooms as a few more pop.

    Rattly old crate resting in the background digesting her first oil change since 2017.

    She can't say I'm not good to her.

    Well some sun today and the 49ers on to start the day. New chair is perfect



    New bricks just delivered for my Water feature project.



    Snuck in a back forty mow late yesterday. Was a bit swampy but had to be done as the grass/weeds were getting to the point where mowing would have been a mess.

    I have been coming to Thailand ,I dont even remember how long , but three days ago celebrated our 14 year weeding anniversary , so I will guess about 18 years and I have never seen so much rain . We got so tired of it last month that we said the hell with it and left the country for a month hoping that by the time we come back end of October it will be over.
    It was raining for at least an hour, often a lot more , almost every day
    We are the second house from the main road, and our road was unpaved and covered with gravel , IMO it was fine, town decided they were going to pave it .They scraped the road, spread sand , and then left it like that because it was raining every day, It was like that for a couple of weeks before we left TIT
    we have been away for over a week now ant it is still not done!!
    It was a muddy mess and our driveway was never clean from the muddy tires of the car.
    We have a smal SUV and as I said only second house from the main road, so we were ok, but people further down and with motor bikes had to leave their bikes on the main road a walk home.
    Our town, just outside the ring road in Khon Kaen is elevated on a hill and as such never gets flooded , but many parts of KKC are not so lucky. I see pictures posted on FB and feel bad for the people.
    Having said all that, I am already missing home . LOL as I get older I think a couple of weeks away is enough.
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    I must admit it's something we've never really commemorated.

    No wonder the gardener has been looking a bit down in the dumps!

    Funny BB, 3 weeks ago I was looking at airfares to take a business trip as an excuse to get out from the constant rain. Never pulled the trigger as I decided to go to Chonburi to the factory for a few weeks. Nice enough break and the rain wasn't too bad. Of course returning home, the compound was a jungle and swamp and then the rain really started. Thankfully we have paved roads in the mooban

    I dreed to think what our property would be like after being away for a month and all the rain.
    I should had taken the advice of this forum not to put down grass on the side m and especially Malay grass.
    I should had concreted the whole damn thing LOL. Before we left I had to cut it every three or four days.
    When we go away our cat (Sweetest cat i have ever seen) goes and stays with my wife's sister next door. It was sad to see her on the camera wait by our door every day, then after three days she went to the sisters house, and now has not be seen for a week. I am very concerned because the automatic cat feeder has not been touched, and with all that rain why would she be saying out.
    My wife call her my "Mia Noy" . I hope she comes back.
