    Yes Neverna, we refer to it as a light breakfast. Fruit, yogurt, toast, tea/coffee, a cereal if you smile real nice at us. We're quite flexible on breakfasts. Tomorrow morning we'll be up at 4:00am doing a packed brekky for three folks leaving at 5:00am for the sunrise at the 1715 Viewpoint in the Doi Phu Kha National Park. Then later we're doing an Englsih style breakfast for a party of two. (Bit pissed atm, decided to open a bottle of Bundy because I'm annoyed at something.)

    C'mon BiP you can't leave us hanging by not telling us what has pissed you off.
    You usually come across as a person who goes with the flow so I am surprised you have to head into the bottle for an answer.

    You can tell us we won't say anything to anyone, honest.

    Multiple reasons building up various frustrations over time ootai but trigger this afternoon was wife's yet again attempt to plant an inappropriate plant in the wrong location around the house. (Other reasons are more substantive.) Anyway, she came inside after an hour of so to apologize only to find me a bit worse for wear, a first in our eleven years together. That large bottle of Bundy had been sitting around unopened since late February and I must say I hope the remaining two thirds are as good as the first third. (Room is still spinning, might be another aftershock from the Earthquakes last week.)

    Please enlightrn me some more. What exactly constitutes an inappropriate plant? The worng place well that's just a matter of opinion.
    I thought the climbing rose being allowed to grow up to and then all over your balcony rails was "the wrong plant in the wrong place" but I think you allowed that to happen without too much resistance..

    I am constantly amazed about what my MiL does in regard to panting shit all over the place with seemingly no plan or forethought attached. I think it goes like this, there's an empty space and here I have a plant so I will put it here in this space. Doesn't seem to matter that the plant is a sapling that will grow into a huge tree and the space is large enough for an egg plant bush. Also being an Engineer I like nice straight lines and symmetry but the MiL seems to like haphazard chaos. I have learned to not care anymore but I do get into trouble when I pull out a "plant she put in" thinking its a weed.

    Save the rest of the rum as I am sure there will be many more occasions when you will want to turn to it for solace.

    Having seen how a climbing rose around the back of the house has climbed five meters and spread four, the wife was planting one at the front on a location where it had nothing to either climb or spread on to. It would have sprawled about impeding access to one corner of the carport and generally making an ar*e of itself. Anyway, it's not happening, and I've dug up and burned the bougainvilleas this morning for good measure.

    On to more relevant and better news...after the disappointment earlier in the week of the Thai big bike group drinking their own whiskey, the wife just took a call from the gent who booked a group of ten for tonight. (These are the folks that would only book if we did an English style breakfast.) He asked that we have the refrigerator fully stocked with Chang. We've already got twenty large bottles cold so hoping those plus another twenty of Leo and Singha quench their thirsts.

    We've got one room still open for a sale tomorrow night but to be honest it would be good not to sell it. The other two rooms are already blocked. Might be able to take the wife and dogs swimming on the first, but it is getting a little cooler. We are forecast to have mornings 8-11 degrees here late next week. Would make it close or even below freezing at the 1715 Viewpoint in the mountains and National Park.
