    I do certainly hope to see a lot of bikers here. Besides no one I would rather share this with then you guys, so a little forgiveness please.

    The big day is tomorrow and we have our village wedding so I'm marrying her twice once for the government and once for her. :lol: What can I say hard to keep a good ride partner. :wink:

    Lots of planning went into this already about two months worth. But, things are coming together today and the insanity is now in high gear.

    Yep got to cool peoples thirst

    Table and chairs arrived yep I can see ten farrangs sitting around these tiny tables sent back for ten more hopefully that will be enough

    A local school let us use their tables to sit the food on

    The local Wat let us use some of their things. We will have three stoves going one for the Thai food. A grill for the burgers supplied by Harry's bar. Just heat the meat a bit and melt cheese on them if people want it. Another to keep the baked Beans hot.

    Congratulations & have a good one.
    If I remember rightly October is "wedding month" for lots of Northern Thais & Lao. So you're right in there with the local traditions - good man.

    You know guys that was a very humbling experience. First to have so many people that we had contact with come and share this very special day wuth us, Was amazing.

    This was all new to me I wondered why we had heart with a slot in the top. well when they opened that bugger up, there 12K baht inside it. Some of them were just 50 baht. But, that was 50 baht that from people who would have been served much better using for thier own famalies. So my Thailand seems to be much different then some I see here.

    I have so many photos to go through I won;t even begin to try to post them yet, I apoalgize to everyone I never really got to spend as much time with anoyone as I wished I could.

    Thank You All

    Ray & Poi

    Dear Ray,

    So happy to hear your wedding was a success! (How could it not be with all those refreshments!) ;)

    Sorry I couldn't make it, but had the little one for the weekend and would have been tough traveling with him that far.

    Certainly look forward to toasting your marriage the next time we meet!

    Congratulations again!

    The first p[art of the day was actually a house Tamboon. Poi got up at 0330 to get her makeup done. So that was the start of a very long day.

    I knew eventually this woman would have me crawling around on my hands and knees.

    I really enjoyed this monk 87 years old. This was the first time he had left the Wat in 20 years for an event I'm told. That wasn't for us but because of our housekeepers mother. Now I don't have a clue what is going on. He is getting that impression fast. So everyone is serious as can be he and I are laughing. I really enjoyed it.
