As I Unlocked The Front Gate,

I noticed one of the Amaryllis bulbs was starting to flower,

 this is the first time this one has,

 it is I think one that originally came from Brazil,

we are still putting our DVD collection into alphabetical order when Mark called round for a cup of tea, after a couple of cups he suggested that we pop into the Punch & Judy, for his breakfast, needing no encouragement to go to the pub off we went,

after a renewed effort we only have the boxed sets to do, then off to the Friday night market,

 to the genuine American Eagle watch stall, I bought one for 199 baht,

 it was still quiet early with very few customers,

I love this joke stall with the fake dead chickens hanging up, not to mention fake snakes and bugs,
 but on a more serious note is this stall that specialises geology specimens,

and bracelets made from them,


a nice example of fools gold, iron pyrite,

 hardly a cloud in the sky this evening,

 cold drinks on sale,

 opposite the bar this evening a stall selling badminton rackets,

 we were quiet early as some of the fish to be bar-b-qued had not started their turn,

 the view from the far end of the pet/fish section,

 plenty of foods to tempt you but few customers so far,

 some of the fish having completed their turns on the grill,

 all cooked and ready to go,

when we are at the bar I do enjoy a piece of lime in the top of the bottle if I am drinking San Miguel Light, but the bar does not have them, so for 5 baht two fresh ones were cut and in the bag,

fresh seafood, yummy! 

 pre peeled crab,

 and prawns, maybe next week we might buy some to take home for our evening meal,

 Bill was already waiting at the bar,

 we were then joined by Brian and Sa along with Juu,

 some apples to nibble on later in the evening,

 Diana and Sa went shopping, then joy of joys the shoes Diana has been looking for were back in stock, so we now have to go out to a restaurant so she can try them out,

 also at the market this week were Craig and Porn with their family,

 again this week there were no potatoes at the Friday night market, so along to another market to buy some,

 mission accomplished so home we went,

 the new watch, hopefully it will not have the troubles of the last one, 

for some reason it was quiet late so we watched just one film this evening, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, great fun movie, Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire are three young children who receive terrible news that their parents have died in a fire, they are sent to live with Count Olaf, a greedy distant relative, who is after their fortune, great acting by all concerned, then for us off to bed.
