Retirement-----Ciejay and Me love it .

Well , today is a very special day for us , it marks the 6th anniversary of us leaving our home in Salem , Oregon ,USA and getting on the big silver bird with 11 suitcases ,with all of our worldly possessions and moving to the land of Milk and Honey, also known as The Land of Smiles and Gentle People, Thailand. I don't think there has gone a day that I haven't thanked the Lord for making it possible for us to be here in the LOS and for all my Thai and Farang friends,family, and neighbors and my wonderful wife , that have made it such a good , safe and happy life , and not forgetting my small SS check that I receive each month that allows us to live here in a comfortable home , on little piece of land, in a beautiful valley ,at the foot of a small mountain range , along side the famous River Kwai and in the wonderful small village called Whang Pho .
We're happy and also we're Retired in Thailand and Loving It. Malcolm and Ciejay

Malcolm happy anniversary. Can't believe I have almost been here three years myself.

I find time seems to go so quickly.....perhaps that's just old age creeping up.

With no small amount of envy, I say "Congratulations"!! Perhaps in years to come I can say "Move over."

Congratulations to you both. We celebrated our sixth anniversary of moving to Italy, earlier this year. It still feels like a dream sometimes, I am sure you understand this :)
