I havent written much lately since ive been back in the old chicago burbs. its nice to come back and see the family and the few friends that are still left out there but really, all this can be accomplished in about a week and then im left with my thumb firmly implanted in my butt. im now going on week #3 and the term stir crazy is a pretty accurage portrayl of where im at right now. luckily my flight for thailand leaves on thursday (28th sept) morning so its almost time to get back out into that wide world.

in case you all happened to miss the news last week, thailand went through a coup....thankfully without an bloodshed. the parents were a little wary of me still heading out to asia under the circumstances but its not like they are rounding up foregieners or anything. the first year i left for thailand was 2 days after the tsunami and now im going a week after a coup de tat....man do i have timing huh? thailand under marshal law is still better then chicago in the winter....not even close if you ask me, so im not changing the travel plans.

i know its been a pretty boring summer for the old blog and i appreciate those of you who stuck with me. hopefully this thing gets a bit more interesting when i get on the plane. tune in and find out!

Hey Neal, remember us?? Can't belive you're on your way back to Thailand - bugger - maybe we'll 'bump' into you again on Railay or maybe the Kao Sarn. You're one jammy git (a quaint English expression!) we're soooo jealous - your preserved for prosterity on our DVD swimming at Railay!!! Have a blast man it'll be amazing. Lynne & Graham xxx
