For the garden Siripron was doing some extra plants and flowers. Because of the cremation of King Bhumibol government ask people to plant yellow (the color of the King) in their front garden and we also got some plants from Phen & Alfons. Because of the rainy season the grass grows very fast and were we do not want it…
At the end May our car was hit from behind by a truck with bad brakes. The other driver got a fine of 400 Thai Baht and our car had to go the same car to a repair shop. A few days later we could get the car but they didn’t repair but only ordered the required stuff for the repairs. At 20 June the car had to go back to the repair shop and the repairs would take about 2 weeks…
The weekend of 10/11 June we went with Supana & Jan to Phon (240 km) for a Farang visit to Phen & Alfons, Penny & Christiaan were also there. The reception at the house of Phen & Alfons was great with some snacks for lunch. After a late short beer visit to our hotel Phen & Alfons made us a great Farang dinner. The next morning we went, without Penny & Christiaan, to Phi Mai for a visit to a special forest and the wonderful Khmer Temple of Phi Mai (they call it a small Angkor Wat). We ended our visit with a lunch in a restaurant in Phon, Phen gave us some plants, bought some plants in Khon Kaen and had a dinner with Supana & Jan at Nana’s Coffee shop.
And the end of June we have always 2 special celebrations. Our marriage anniversary at the 24th and the birthday of Siripron at 30 June. So on 17 June we went with Warunee, Mudmai, Mudmie, Piauw & Both to Udon Thani to upgrade Siripron her necklace to a 2 Baht version (that is about 30/32 gram of 24 karat gold). For me we bought a second hand iPhone 5 for cycling and for MP3 playing. Also I ordered a new Android box (Beelink GT1 Ultimate – Android 6.x) and I was almost 3 days busy with installing the box (EuroTV, Kodi 17 & add-ons, settings and more). The Kodi add-ons we the most difficult because after one year the repro-files are not the same… On the birthday of Siripron we had a dinner with family at the house of aunt, uncle and Eye’e Kapolo.
Other things that happened:
– Our monthly visit to Kham Ta Kla for this time only for bread because George (the butcher) visited Germany and only his wife was there.
– With Top Charoen Eye Centre we did new glasses in the same frame for the Siripron and we ordered new glasses for my frame but that one had to go to Bangkok. On 30 June my I could get my glasses (The only one in Thailand who had about the same frame was te late King Bhumibol…).
– 19 June my oldest sister Afra started her treatment for Uterus cancer…
– Of course Chok Dee is doing well and he got his injections again.
