BACK TO THE LAND OF THE LIVING
















There was a few days when I was beginning to wonder if I was going to get better , but with a little medication and lots of TLC from my sweet wife , I am glad to report that I am on the mend and feeling like I'm going to make it . Thanks for all the get well wishs and maybe a few prayers too, all of it was just what I needed to get well.





Today I got a very special get well wish, Kat from the Bamboo School , came by the house with a pick-up truck load of kids to sing get well songs for me and to pray for my health . What a joy to see the love and life in these kids that Kat pours her heart and soul into 24hrs. a day 7 days a week , never taking any time off for her self, she has volunters that come and help her from time to time and she is always glad to have help for any lenght of time 1 day to 1 month .I am always so impressed as to how well behaved these kids are and you can see the love they have for Kat in their eyes , she many times is the difference between life and death for many of them . Just 2 weeks ago a lady walked thru the jungle for 6 days and delivered a baby born at 7 mths pregnency after the baby was born and she was able ,she took off back to the jungle and left the baby for Kat , and now Kat has one more mouth to feed and care for and give love to like you have to see to believe , She is for real ,as I am sure there are lots of loving folks all over the world that do the same , it;s just that I can wittness this with my own eyes and see the results . I said all that to say this THEY MADE MY DAY Malcolm

Hi Malcolm glad you are feeling a bit better. Must be because the rainy season is ending!

Kate sounds a very special person and it was nice that the kids came to see you.

Malcom, hope you are like new soon my friend. It was great to see the kids turn up and do what they did, this is the excellent part of Thailand that I love, the rural Thailand, the real Thailand.

Thai people are amazing, and you seem to have many great people around you, especially your other half CJ.

Again, hope you are out and about soon mate.

Hey Malcolm, from the Pornchai crew all wishing you a swift return back to full health. Kat sounds like a modern day angel! When you're 100% come and have a pork and garlic at the coffee shop, that'll keep your pecker up! All the best, Ben

Nice to read you are on the mend. That must have been quite a surprise when Kat and her gang turned up and with a guitar as well. That's enough reason alone to make the best karaoke singer in town feel a lot better. Hope you are 101% soon.

Good to hear you are feeling better Malcolm. What a wonderful surprise for to have Kat show up with all the kids to sing to you.

Can't beat rural Thailand.
