Long Live the King & Happy Fathers Day

the king of thailand Long Live the King & Happy Fathers Day

A very happy 82cnd birthday to the king of Thailand today. The King’s birthday is also fathers day in Thailand so a happy fathers day to everyone in Thailand as well. Let’s hope the King continues to recover from his recent illness and that the Thai People can come together for the king and the Kingdom and put aside all the political strife at least for the next few days.

    Talen I couldn’t agree more. His Majesty continues to be the mortar that binds Thailand together.

    I had a pleasant day yesterday since my “adopted daughter” Doy got it into her head that since I was her Father figure she should look after me-I had to stop her pouring my beer and lighting a cigarette at one stage!

      Mike, that’s awesome that you have that connection with Doy. I called Pookie last night and the little one got on the phone to talk to me, she calls me papa…the talk was more rambling but it made me feel good.

      Hopefully the King still has some years left in him and we can celebrate his birthday again next year.

    Talen, This week, I had the honour of signing a book of wishes for the King. So amongst the millions of Thai people, my name will be there. And that, is awesome :-)

      That is really cool Cat. Where was the book when you signed it? Better yet, how big was the book?

    It was at a Wat in Chachoengsao Province. An odd building, it looks just like a mosque. And from the designs, I’d say they used the same architect as Brunei because some of Brunei’s palaces and mosques are almost identical (the small details especially). I took photos to compare.

    The book was not huge so I guess they just change them out when they get full.School children were rotating through with Scout uniforms on, so they would fill up fairly quickly.
