sounds like same froggy what got wify throat this am. For me, it was off to sleep @ normal time only to be awakened by many booms. Afterwhich was difficult going to get back on the ZZZ train.
Also griffy awakened, so we go feed new dog, sonny.
-
Dog is crazy about wify chicken rice soup. Am still not sure if new dog can keep up with wify leftovers.
-She cooks for the hoards. What doggy was getting was after soup pan attacked by inet kids y'dy. Trust me is good the inet kids had a go @ soup. Otherwise dog would never be able to chow down soo much soup.
- She just 5 weeks old. When she gets bigger then maybe she will keep up with wify cooking. For now most goes to neighbors rapidly multiplying chicken population.
Am also hoping doggy develops taste for warm chicken meat to scratch off strays who venture over pwall gate. Perhaps should have bought the golden retreaver. They are more prone to chasing birds. The Lab is pure housedog. She looks to be chief sleeper, aroused only by whaff of a free meal.
Sonny has distain for puppy chow. But wify could not pry jaws off a bit o bbq chicken. Told wify this dog was likely weaned on rice n chicken.
No worries about chicken bone digestion for the local dogs. Into which category also falls Sonny. I was told never feed dog chicken nor fish bones. Thai dogs are immune to such and eat both with hearty appeal. I just toss every thing over pwall. Next day only a greasy spot left.

Congratulations on the new member of the family. A word of warning, don't give too much of those leftovers and not too much rice because you will end up with a fat dog.
Mine only get little bits of rice very occasionally and mostly canned dog food, dry dog food and raw meat, duck heart and pork ribs .... and don't forget the rabies shots. :D

life&times
2 rains in 2 days= good as >3weeks since rain up here. Rivers' not dry yet but way down. A dry Dry Season caused old handdug to go dry 3 days ago.
So fired up the 27m 3'' new well with 1hp jet pump, 3 dys ago. It gives about 1 gpm average.
Compare to like 25gpm with less than 1/4hp from 8m deep hand dug, when water level working.
After big rains, checked handdug water @ 7m so reprimed the handdug and she's ok for now. So running both pumps for now.
No luck finding diggers to go down & clean our hand dug. Story is hand dug went dry May2010 during build ergo z 3'' new well.
-
Maybe i tool up a tripod bailer over handdug to try luck @ mud bailing. Neighbor's handdug's holding up ok. So is likely just a matter of cleaning.

closed inet cafe as wify wanted to run it as bar after 8pm.
too many low life jobless thiefs - rifraf not required.
technically inet. cafe building not covered by my lease
when things got testy
lawyer confiscated wify blue book and as ebill and inet bill comes thru my house- then it is my way or services get cut. wify sold computers and closed operation.
much greater peace now that the rifraf moved to other end of village.
