    He’ll find reasons. But the very fact he has her line must be dangerous for when he gets home and his wife checks his phone.

    ^ These screen lock things are marvelous, if indeed they were needed.

    I have just learnt that PJG has closed her shop, so my excuse of a caramel slurpy has gone. I can't use Moodeng as an excuse because if the wife found out how much the vet fees were she'd go mental, and also probably demand full access to the aircon remotes while I'm away.

    Married life ain't easy at times, but at least I've got me dogs!

    Today I arrived home after a month offshore...

    It's like I've never been away...

    I'm back into the routine of walking Lola up the road with the daughter on the way to school. PJG seems to be away at the moment so I haven't yet seen Moodeng, and Lola's mother and sister are locked in the garden around the back.

    I think there must be an optimum distance from the houses to place your bins. Too far from the road and the binmen won't reverse down to empty your bins but too far from the houses and the Thais will just throw all their rubbish on the ground, too lazy to walk the 50 yards.



    We clearly haven't got this right, so every morning I carry up the night's offerings to the bins. I used to throw it back outside their gate but then it just stayed there forever and still annoyed me.

    Lola's father was waiting to see us today.

    Guess who we're going to see tomorrow!

    I can't wait to see how she reacts after so long.

    Hopefully Moodeng will be excited to see Lola as well!

    Looks likes she's found a new younger slimmer plaything while you were away. What's that thing in front of Moodeng too?

    ^ I can only imagine where your twisted mind is going with that. I believe it's the chewed handle of a fly swat.

    I briefly saw Moodeng yesterday but didn't get a picture. PJG has closed her shop because she just can't compete with all the 7-Elevens and the like that have recently sprung up around our area. So no more weekend caramel slurpies for me.

    The daughter has English and Maths (calculator) exams today which is her hardest day, so I let her take Lola up the road to take her mind off things.

    This was the first time Lola's family have seen her since I arrived home from work. The photo also caught the local Monk on his morning alms tour. Next stop is the house of Rabsap's hammer killer... all is forgiven for a bowl of rice.



    The daughter has no problem in controlling an unruly group of dogs. A useful skill in Thailand.



    The true pack leader!

    A couple of nights ago the daughter was a bit teary which is most unlike her, but eventually I got to the bottom of it.

    She had gone in to see the gardener to scrounge a bottle of coke and Max was sitting in Dan's old spot. Dan always lay at the foot of the gardener's stairs and until recently, this spot has remained vacant after her passing around 16 months ago. It's a strange thing.

    Max, our new pack leader, has just started using this spot and it must have sparked some memory in my lovely young daughter. Dan was 16 years old when she passed so of course my daughter had known her for her entire life. It pleases me that the daughter has such fond memories of Dan, but also saddens me that it makes her sad.

    Here was Max in Dan's old spot...



    And let's face it, what a great opportunity to show again the reason my daughter is so attached to Dan's memory. It's my thread, so I can indulge myself!





    It brought a tear to my eye meself doing this, daft bugger.


    But anyway, life moves on and yesterday I took Lola up to visit PJG and Moodeng, the first visit for around six weeks since before I went away for work.

    To be honest I would have loved to take a video to really show how much she squirmed with pleasure when we arrived, but I didn't think it appropriate and I am a married man, after all.

    But to give an idea, Moodeng was well happy as well...



    Moodeng was just so happy to see Lola it was a joy to see.



    Moodeng is just an adorable little dog although I could see that she will outgrow PJG's confines as she matures. She has big feet and will grow big I reckon... Moodeng, that is, I hope!



    Soon PJG will sort out her back garden (and no, that is not a double entendre) and once Moodeng is allowed to wander free, I am really looking forward to watching her play with Lola. Lola has a great temperament and I reckon she's the perfect dog to get Moodeng socialised with her kind.

    Aawww...

    I think her nails need a clip, moodaengs not PJG. Perhaps show her how to do it or not and use it as a periodic excuse to see her

    I'd love to see a video of Mendy clipping Yogi's nails.

    ^ Not a problem.

    An Internet-savvy individual like your good self should know that anything is possible. Just
    'like and subscribe' and I'm on to it.

    Yogi is a piece if cake once he's muzzled up. FFS, I'll even have a go at the wife's nails if she's muzzled and restrained!

    It probably harder to nip her quick than Yogi's, I'm guessing.

    ^ I've never been brave enough to test that out, to be honest.

    First thing this morning I was welcomed by six dogs... but no Maya. This is very unusual and was a bit of a worry.

    After a quick search I found her in the front garden... munching on a fledgling chicken that must have fallen out of a nest overnight.

    Disgusting dog.



    Normal service was soon resumed.

    Great to see Moodeng looking so well.
    Did PJG whiz up a caramel slurpie?

    I didn't even get a personal one.

    I just assumed she still had the hardware in a box at home.
    Does this mean she has no income now?
