Same Same

A Thai expression used for many situations, but with us ' another day here '

Not a good start to the morning as a text from the UK to say that R's great friend Brian had died in Harrogate on the Thursday morning. He had been in a care home in Leeds since March last year and had transferred to a nursing home about four weeks ago when the care home could no longer meets his needs. Severe dementia and finally medical problems needing more attention. He was unaware of his surroundings and finally caught an infection a couple of days before causing his demise. Very sad as R had known him for over 40 years and had sailed with him many times as well as enjoying family holidays together wit all the children. Funeral next Thursday and Alex and Steve will go for R. It will be held at the same crematorium as was used for Hilda just after Christmas.
The morning and early afternoon spent just reading, lazing and swimming before a walk along the beach and a sea swim after which M had a manicure/pedicure whilst it was Chang time for R and a chat on the 'phone with Brian's wife in Yorkshire.
A meal in 'town' next to the manicurist shop, where the service was not good but the food as usual for Thailand was freshly cooked when it came. Took the hotel minivan down into town as the slope of the road rather steep and difficult in 'pretty' shoes.
The duo were still singing at our hotel, performing the same repertoire they have done ever since we arrived. But they are always smiling.
