Off To The Bank,

which is opposite the Pattaya Beer Garden,

 then home, water the plants and play with the kittens,

 then off to the weekend night market on Thepprasit Road, cloudy skies,

 looking towards Jomtien,

 I retraced my steps past one of the toy stalls,

 and some of the many cosmetics sellers,

 looking inland, cloudy,

 one of the mobile fruit sellers drove past,

 opposite the bar this evening two clothes stalls, 

 an ice cream seller makes his way past the steelworks,

 there were not many people in the market this evening,

 we always arrive here at roughly the same time,

 this is a nice shop to walk past, the perfume from the soaps making a nice aroma,

 on to the pet section at the bottom of the market,

 to the usual store we go to,

 wet and dry food for the kittens purchased,

 and I was on my way past the petting stall, 

and at the end of the row the aquatic store,

 sunset over the market,

 by now most of the aisles under the steelworks,

 had a collection of stalls under the covered over part of it,

over the years I have seen many takes on the World War II poster Keep Calm,

 and many messages on T shirts, well this for me was the best parody of the Keep Calm poster and message on a T shirt I have seen so far,

 it says it all!

 not many at the bar this evening,

 at the end of the steps the peanut man listens to the key-chain seller,

 as night fell we made our way home,

to be greeted by the delicious aroma of beef stew and dumplings,

after our meal we watched Bargain Hunt, a few from Cops and Judge Judy, to round the evening off Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, based on the writings of Daniel Handler, writing under the pen name Lemony Snicket, who is the New York Times award winning author of the immensely popular young readers’ series, A Series of Unfortunate Events, since the release of the first title in the series in 1999, more than 60 million copies of the thirteen volume series have been sold, in case you have not read the books, seen the film or the Netflix series the story is about Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire who are three intelligent young children who receive terrible news that their parents have died in a fire and have left them an enormous fortune not to be used until the eldest child is of age, when they are sent to live with Count Olaf, who naturally wants their inheritance, great fun and with that we were off to bed.
