Juu Called Today To Say His Harley Had Just Arrived,

so off we went,
looking pretty in blue,
it is a FLSTFI 15th Anniversary Fat Boy, in case you are wondering it has a fuel-injected 1550cc Twin Cam 95 engine,
it looks very nice, would I like one? no thank you,
we spent some time at Juu's looking at his fish amongst other things,
some of his blah chon, spelt as it sounds, but more commonly known as snakeheads, had bred, meaning there are hundreds if not thousands of fry in the pond,
a small pellet of food was placed on the side of the pond,
where it was attacked with vigor,
Juu's wife had very kindly bought Diana a gift,
after bidding our farewells we went to the soup stall,
for our evening meal,
for a change there were more than a few stalls here today,
two soups to go 30 baht each,
then feet up for a epic, Gone With The Wind, although we had watched it before it is still a great film to watch again, here is a bit of trivia, the book was written by Margaret Munnerlyn Mitchell (November 8, 1900 – August 16, 1949) it is one of the most popular books of all time, selling more than 30 million copies, Mitchell married Berrien “Red” Upshaw in 1922, but they were divorced after it was revealed that he was a bootlegger and an abusive alcoholic, she later married Upshaw's friend, John Marsh, on July 4, 1925, Marsh had been best man at her first wedding and legend has it that both men courted Mitchell in 1921 and 1922, but Upshaw proposed first, She was a distant cousin to famous gunfighter and dentist, Doc Holliday, who participated in the gunfight at the OK coral, it is also thought that she modeled Ashley Wilkes, a main character in Gone with the Wind, after Holliday, for decades it was thought that Mitchell had written only one complete novel, (in fact, periodically claims are made that she never wrote it at all due to the lack of any other published work by her), but in the 1990s, a manuscript by Mitchell of a novel entitled Lost Laysen was discovered among a collection of letters Mitchell had given in the early 1920s to a suitor named, Henry Love Angel,
in a complete change of pace two from Bottom followed, Hole, Richie and Eddie decide to visit the fairground for a fun night out, and hoping it doesn't cost Richie more than 3 quid, where they decide to take a ride on the Ferris Wheel, and find themselves trapped on the Ferris all night when the Fairground closes, next Terror, Richie and Eddie decides to put on their own Halloween party, inviting Spudgun and Hedgehog, Richie decides to raise the Devil,
then some bad news, we watched the last three episodes of Black Books, I have to say an acquired taste, but we both enjoyed the shows very much, but as the last show was recorded in 2004 I do not think there will be any more which is a shame, but by now it was late so for us off to bed.
