    A Royal Enfield! Had a couple of the British made ones, a Crusader Sports and a Bullet. Good bikes. Believe the Indian ones are OK as well.
    At least the job is only 2 weeks-and will help pay for the bike!

    The bike is plush Don. So smooth. They didn't order the pillion seat as they say, because they ask me two days ago what colour. I so want my wife to share.

    From what I remember, it is essential to service them when due, they don't like being neglected, otherwise they are good old workhorses. Was notaware they were available in Thailand-but it makes sense they are being relatively easy to keep running with minimum tools as they are.

    We went for a drive to Surin after a lot of frustrating furniture shopping around Sisaket. Even in the large home and hardware stores, we could not find a suitable sofa, until on the way home, we found Index Living Mall. Excellent shop. All of the lower priced sofas we looked at, were like slabs of concrete, and even so here, but mid range were not too shabby. They also have high end furniture, leather and such, but that is too rich for my humble self. The brothers already tease me for paying two hundred baht for a dog. They call the dog "song roi baht".

    One L shaped setting was 10 000 baht, and I fell in like with it as soon as I sat in it. I slipped out to the car and bought Mrs Emu and Pooklook to test, and sealed the deal. Delivered next day. Surprise, surprise when they arrived, because I had bought two, and not told her. Haha. Now there is plenty of seating. Previously there was a thin mattress on the floor they all sat on. It stank of all sorts off spilled drinks and baby fluids.

    She has been at me for some time to buy a sofa. I say, I got you a kitchen, and yet you cook outside. I got a table, and you all sit on the floor to eat. Why would I buy a sofa.

    As you can imagine, driving around Thailand often, you see a lot of cringe worthy stuff. This school bus is just too ridiculous.


    I wasn't so aware of what all of the "Buddha" days were. I know when there is one though, because my good wife hunts me off to the shop next door to buy soft drinks for the shrine. On the more auspicious days, I have to travel one or two villages away to buy flowers.
    This particular one, was Wan Phra. Called Buddha Day. Apparently, the monks should stay at the Wat, and the people go there to make offerings, but our local monks were wandering about. These particular days are connected to the lunar cycle, and are every week or so. They are marked on the calendars with a Buddha image.

    There have been several snake sightings recently. One next door at the shop is reported to be at thick as a wrist. Mrs Emu was calling me from near the shed last week, to come get a snake. It was gone when I got there. A couple of hours later, I found it hanging with a mouthful of toad. It seemed to be overly ambitious. It is a Flying Tree Snake. They are a little poisonous, but not too dangerous.

    The carport/ driveway project is complete now. Only a repaint of the inside of the wall still needs to be done. Finally, a mud free entry/ exit. After the wall is finished at the rear, the driveway will carry through to the other gate. I don't want to put concrete there until after the trucks come to backfill the retaining wall.

    Cheers guys, Emu.
