Festive Day

After breakfast today's adventure was a long drive way out to the edge of Henderson, just past the Raiders' training facility, to a small Thai temple holding a Songkran festival. All the food and drinks were free, donations accepted towards building a big new temple.

Photos are on Flickr, so I won't post many here. After the monks did their prayers and accepted food, there was some dance entertainment by a professional looking adult women's troupe,

and then a tiny child got up and did a very impressive solo. The MC interviewed her - she speaks English and Thai but was very shy about talking. She said she was 7.

And then her mother got up and danced. OMG.


The wind was blowing at a good 40 MPH, so they wrapped up early, but it was fun because it was all in Thai. I counted maybe 6 non-Thais out of the hundred or so people there. Women were dressed to the nines, especially the high school/college aged ones.

Got home around 1:30, the mail was not delivered yet. :-(

In aquarium news, the water in the tank is clear, probably thanks to the chemical I put in last night, but it also killed 2 fish, maybe more. The dwarf gouramis chomp on the carcasses.

Rebooted the Amazon Fire and moved it to a better internet location, but Sling programs are not streaming correctly. Prime shows are.

Ordered wings from KFC but what arrived was baked, not fried, and spiced like Popeye's - too much for me. And the doordash woman forgot the biscuits. Their fries are awful.

 Plans for tomorrow:

  • Garbage, Cable, Blood, MNF at the clubhouse, BASFA

    Up with the alarm at 8, out of bed by 9. Spook wanted to stay on the bed with me but the covers were all lumped up. Collected all the trash bags and…

  • Renn Fair & Football

    Spook started the night curled up next to me, but that didn't last long. Got up with the alarm as planned, banana breakfast and morning drugs,…
