so time for some maintenance,

 the cats showed little interest,

 in Diana cleaning their pool,

 but I took a couple of pictures of them anyway,

 Mariana still for a change, normally she sees herself in the lens of the camera and takes a swipe at it, 

 then it was my turn, water out,

 and back in again,

 next out and we parked up at the rear of TukCom opposite the Grand Day Night Hotel,

 Diana started shopping in Friendship,

 whilst I made my way up Pattaya Tai,

 going past the construction work next to Friendship on the way,

 and this is where I was going, the Kodak shop almost opposite friendship, now we had our new yearly visa extension I made business card sized copies of them along with the main page of our passports and had them laminated, also I had both of the tax certificates for both motorcycles laminated at the same time,

 whilst waiting I took a few pictures of the fish in the aquarium there, two Nemos, some times called the common clownfish, (Amphiprion ocellaris),

 a powder blue tang, (Acanthurus leucosternon),

 and a regal tang, (Paracanthus hepatus) all in remarkable health made waiting a pleasure,

 laminating over I made my way back past Soi Bukaow,

 to TukCom to meet up with Diana, where we bought a new external hard drive, I wanted to back up all of the pictures we have taken, in the past we have lost so many as hard drives have stopped working and the pictures on them not retrievable, 

 a quick stop for an ice tea and coffee, and we were on our way home,

 as usual we were going to have a bar-b-q outside on Saturday evening, but just as I went outside to lay the table, the rain came down, so it was inside for us, garlic bread for our starters,

  whilst Diana prepared our next course I took a couple of pictures of the fish, this a bleeding heart tetra, (Hyphessobrycon erythrostigma),

 and a recent addition to the aquarium that we bought when we last visited the plant market, it should be a black moor, (Carassius auratus auratus), but this particular fish reverted to the gold colour on it's body instead of being totally black, which is why we bought it as it looked rather nice,

 next course, scallops in garlic,


 our flowers for the table today and tomorrow,

white and yellow chrysanthemums,

 for our main course a Filipino dish for Diana,

  fillet of pork with potatoes, onions and bacon bits for myself,

  which was followed,

  by a cherry pie,

 with ice cream and custard, 

 delicious, we listened to music for the rest of the evening, Diana had down loaded the theme tune from Suits, 

The Greenback Boogie by Ima Robot, which is a catchy number, the band is based in Los Angeles, California, and formed in the late 1990s, the boogie was recorded in 2011, as a B side on the album Another Mans Treasure, Diana had also downloaded some songs from the great Enrico Caruso, which made for great listening, and with that we were off to bed.
