Thanks to everyone for your prayers.I talked to my sister after the percedure,she said she felt good and believes that she will be ok.The cancer is on her kidney,they went in with needles and froze the spot and will do a CT-Scan soon to check on the spot to see if there is any change. I lost a brother to cancer in 2001 and I am a 17 year survivor,so it runs in our family.Somewhat scary at times.I do know the fear of that word .

Where I am in Oregon, the winter weather has been fairly mild this year. We've had a few days below freezing, but almost no snow or freezing rain that lasted more than a few hours. Once in a while we can have a pretty nasty winter, but most winters are usually chilly and damp for nearly the entire season.

I don't do so well anymore when the temps start dropping into the 40s and lower. That's when I start focusing on a location that has a much warmer climate all year long.



Tropical Thailand

Maybe El Nino decided to take a nap.


No, the previous pic isn't our place. That place is along a river near Hua Hin, which is SW of Bangkok near the Gulf of Thailand. Ours is similar though. We're no where near any rivers, although there's an old klong (canal) that's fairly close but we're not right next to it. Here's a look at our modest place. It's located on the outskirts of a village in the province of Saraburi (about an hour drive NE of Bangkok). The car belongs to our daughter and son-in-law. The big tree in the background is a mango.

I could live with a mango tree in my back yard,I like the fruit but not the price in the markets.Now if I had my own tree I would be happy.Guess that makes you a Lucky Dog.LOL....
Does your daughter live there? Guess the tropics are enticing to some people but I worry about scorpions and such creatures that live there.Just call me a whimp,I can take it...LOL

We also have some banana and papaya plants growing. On the left side of the photo, you can see one of the young papaya plants. Free is always a good price for fresh fruit.

No, our daughter lives in the northern outskirts of the greater Bangkok area. We do have relatives living at the house though. Better than to leave it vacant for squatters to move in and damage the place. Not that that would happen, but it's a sensible precaution that benefits us as well as the relatives staying there.

Sure, there are all kinds of critters around the country. There are scorpions there, but I've never seen any or any other dangerous creepy crawlies. It's not so greatly different than most anywhere in the U.S. in that respect. Plenty of birds with interesting songs. My favorite bird is called a gao-wow that has a very unique and loud call. I enjoy hearing them. And there are various small (and harmless) mosquito-eating lizards darting around here and there, etc. It's like any place. If you see an animal that looks risky, then it's just a matter of using common sense and stay away from from the thing. Same as here in the States.

Actually, we spend most of our time staying with our daughter and her family. Their place is larger and a lot nicer, is in a gated community, has lots of good neighbors, and is a lot closer to various shopping conveniences. Plus, they have air conditioning. LOL!

Hyden, let me know if Ronnie has any old pictures of the place. I'd love to see them. During the Vietnam War, there were a few U.S. Air Force bases in Thailand. The bases are still there but they've been turned over to Thailand, and some are now being used as airports for domestic flights within the country. The country was a very popular destination for servicemen on R&R. Mrs. NB is getting ready to fly over next Tuesday to spend three months there. I'm staying behind. I might go over in May for a couple of weeks, and we'll fly back together. I hate the return flight to the U.S. because of the jet lag. Jet lag is no problem for us going there though.

But even if a person can't, or just doesn't want to fly over there, it can still be fun and interesting to see photos of the place. There area where the house is located, quite frankly, reminds me in many ways of how some places around the U.S. was 50 years ago. Some places over there is almost like a step back in time. Of course, in large cities like Bangkok, things can pretty much like any big city around the world.

Hmmm, I should think about starting a photo blog of the place. I've taken more photos in and around that country than you can shake a stick at. Lots of dazzling and interesting things to see. And a lot of ordinary, everyday things as well.
