A taxi driver told me that forgetting is God’s blessing. I wondered how that works, particularly when at the time I had forgotten something I should have remembered.

Unlike in the other hemisphere, the Autumn Equinox does not seem to be a big deal. Surely, it must mark the last of summer, and the underlying menace of bushfires. Yet the weather has been warm and sunny. When overcast it has been humid.

Of all the weather options, rain is one of the better options. And we had a few wet days this week. That is part of the reason Dexter and Hannah did not go out at much as they would have liked.

And in our case not far away, but near by. I am not meeting the suggested minimum of walking three kilometers each day and probably for Dexter and Hannah this might be a greater distance. Still for Dexter and myself, we were are not as young as we once were.

With regard to the weather, it was a mixed week. The creek crossing did not flow, Dexter and Hannah discovered the pool below the wall. Leaches were back in action.

There are more options to follow than are chosen. On the odd occasion a diversion is followed. We press on. Dexter and Hannah take change and routine in their stride.

Here is the thing. And it has nothing to do whatsoever who might be Prime Minister now, or in the immediate future. We think we are pretty special.

This week was mixed. There was heavy rain, but equally moderate temperatures with high humidity. Dexter and Hannah got out on some days. The creek at the crossing flowed for one day only. The rain was probably heavier than I remember.

Dexter and Hannah usually have a relaxed walk, with the opportunities they seem to like to engage in diversions.

FRIDAY NIGHT DOG BLOG: TURNING BACK January 17, 2015

Mostly when we turn back it has something to do with the environment. For example, I could not cross the creek. Although a flowing creek at the crossing is a seeming distant memory.

Today was hot and humid, and that reflects acclimatizing. I heard the sound of thunder, but was in denial. The weather quickly changed from sunny with clear skies to storm and overcast.

Now it is starting to feel like summer, and that might be a portent. We seemed to have transitioned from one year to another.The actual year is a cultural artifact. While there may be different Buddhist calendars this year, at least in Thailand, is 2558.

FRIDAY NIGHT DOG BLOG: BOXING DAY December 27, 2014

On Boxing Day, Dexter and Hannah were taken out for a walk. They when out on Christmas Day, although some other days were missed. However, it is true that on Sunday, “one walks his dog(s) – “Le dimanche on promene son chien(s)”.  Our meandering is more progressive digressions, than promenade.

FRIDAY NIGHT DOG BLOG: GOOD FORTUNE December 20, 2014

If it is true that everything is transient, then good fortune will pass in due course. There is a suggestion, and it is difficult to what credence some intelligence might have that much of the area will be converted to housing. Meanwhile Dexter and Hannah live in the present.

That was then, and now is now. Time seems to have moved on. Dexter and Hannah have memory, but seem to live, as far as I can tell in the present.

Every day for the past week has involved thunder, lightning and rain. Fortunately, these events have arrived in the evening and here we have not borne the full brunt, including hail, as has occurred elsewhere.

This week I was going to step up and introduce some video clips, but at the moment do not have the time to learn how to splicing and dicing required. The camera work requires a bit of practice. And then if Dexter and Hannah were on the team working together that would help.

Yesterday is always embedded in today. Often photos do not appear to recognize what has gone before. I am not sure what Dexter and Hannah remember what happened days and weeks ago. However, they always seem to be keen to get going, and they remember things that I do not perceive.

There were no fracas this week. I have to follow up on the outcome of last week’s  incident. We did meet the odd dog and owner, but Dexter and Hannah hardly reacted. They each have a new additional lead, but as time goes by things deteriorate.
