You just got that? I have been following Thailand since you moved there and the papers are pretty clear that there is a lot going on there. I figured you were ok since you keep posting and don't comment on it.

I'm not an alarmist. While bullets and bombs are not my favorite companions, I don't get in a frenzy when they go off. I just keep my head down and my eyes open. I don't take it personally. I know a bit about staying alive in combat zones, having lived in them before, so for me, it's just 'life goes on.' Many ex-pats are packing up and moving back to their home countries. I choose to stay.

The south has been a Muslim stronghold ever since the re-alignment of the southern border resulted in taking land away from Malaysia. In the past several years the activists have been much more aggressive, with random bombings occurring every week or so attacking local schools and hospitals. Still not anything like what has been happening in the past few months, with frequent attacks on military and police installations too. The south has turned into a religious war zone. Now, adding to the Holy War aspect, the political schism that is affecting the more northern provinces has added fuel to the fire too. Unfortunately, this is something that will begin to affect us more and more in the north as time goes by.

Please do take care up there, Stitchawl. Things can get ugly quickly and it wouldn't be the same around here without your morning lyrics.

The kitties got a mouse and have spent about the last two hours terrorizing it. I tried to rescue it a few times but it was too fast when it was still relatively whole. They've either finally killed it and who knows where it is, our it's crawled off to die. More likely the former as Strider keeps jumping up on me, stomping on me with his back paws (think silver back chest thumping), flicking his tail about and dashing off. It seems I've become some part of a feline victory dance. It's happened about four times in the last thirty minutes. I think Arwen is back in the laundry room hunting again.

The cats are doing their job and want to make sure you know and appreciate it! Just be glad they don't feel the need to bring the dead evidence up onto your bed to make sure you notice. A victory dance one can appreciate, but waking up to a dead mouse being deposited on the bed? I'll pass.

Or going to the bathroom in the middle of the night only to step on mouse guts with bare feet.

Caya brought me her prize to show me twice. She was stunned by my very stereotypical girlie reaction (dog carrying dead squirrel in mouth not good) and not happy when my father and husband went out to retrieve said dead animal. I believe she still finds things to kill but she takes them under the deck to eat only because she disappears and takes about 25-30 minutes to come when called sometimes. The only place for her to go is under the deck and we have caught her there a few times.
