May 2021: Everything is Broken

As I typed the title, my somewhat flawed memory was telling me that was the title of a Bob Dylan song a long time ago1. I am too lazy now to pull up MusicBee and confirm but it describes my current state accurately. My job is broken and I have an increasing number of broken appliances. My sleep pattern is in need of repair and … Continue reading May 2021: Everything is Broken

Daily Phuket #48: 8 May 2021 – Endlessly Waiting

This was a rough week. Was it my worse week since coming to Thailand more than 16 years ago? If not, it certainly is close. The bottom line is that all we can do is wait and see what happens next. There is nothing else to do as we are all stuck with the important questions left unanswered. When will we (teachers) be allowed to … Continue reading Daily Phuket #48: 8 May 2021 – Endlessly Waiting

April 2021: It Just Flew By!

All things considered, the month of April went by extremely quickly. It was nothing like the same month last year with its endless uncertainties and constant contradictory tightening of restrictions.

I have finished three full books in the past several days (a couple were admittedly … Continue reading Daily Phuket #43: 24 April 2021 – Masked Mona

Wow! Where Did May Go?

I cannot believe that it is time to once again attempt to summarize all that I did during the just-finished month. May just seemed to fly past, especially compared to April. I do not recall doing anything particularly different than in April.  It was simply another 31 days of remaining at home all day every day, other than the two or three times per week … Continue reading Wow! Where Did May Go?

A Good Ole Meandering Update Of Sorts

Since I copped-out on last month’s “Not An Update”, I feel a bit of an obligation to bring my few readers up-to-date on my activities during a month in which I never went anywhere at all.  In many ways, April 2020 has seemed like the longest month ever.  The upcoming month of May will be much the same as our government has extended the so-called … Continue reading A Good Ole Meandering Update Of Sorts
