Even though I have not had a Thanksgiving in over 25 years, I feel the need to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy it!
A few days ago I uploaded a video to my YouTube channel from a subscriber asking if I were to do it all over again and knowing about the corruption in Thailand, would I still move here. I said yes, corruption does not affect me (at least severely), I would still move here, I would simply have more money. The next day, I was confronted with a small scale corruption problem. I say small scale because it didn't affect me much, but in mass, I can see where the Pepsi Corporation and its' merchants would be upset.
This week has been rough. First, my buddy with liver cancer, Frank, passed away. Next, the father of my best friend here in Thailand passed away, also from cancer. Now, I did not know his father, I only knew of him, but I know it has to be hard on my friend. Quite a bit of sadness this week. The older a person gets, the more it seems people drop off like flies.
Frank and I met approximately two years ago and over time I also got to know his family. He was a stand up guy and it will be hard to forget his rapid physical decline, how he looked when I said goodbye to him, and his eventual death.
He and I, along with one or two others, would often sit at Starbucks or McDonald several times a week discussing everything from politics to life in Thailand. The last time, he looked pretty good and for some reason, I thought he was going to be okay. The very next day he was back in the hospital, this time for the last time.
