Jeannette and Panya

At breakfast I meet a new lady, she is older and from Australia and is involved in some kind of church. She's been to Atlanta to check on the church than onto California for a bit of vacation. She's cooking her pancakes and I have to say it's kind of funny for me watching the Europeans cooking their pancakes. Hers are so big they are not going to fit on a plate. I can tell you that and she's got the fire way too high and I know they are going to go black but she's chipper as a songbird and has a high-pitched Julie Childs kind of voice but with an Aussie accent.

I cook mine then get ready to sit and who comes in but my buddy, Panya dressed in orange. He cooks his pancakes and then comes to sit down next to me, his pancakes are square, I tease him about it then the Aussie lady comes and sits with us too and we get to chatting and get on Thailand again. The Aussie says she went to Thailand and didn't like it at all and the spirits or religion kind of gave her disturbing feelings like the heebie jeebies but that's just her. Well she's kind of insulted the Buddhist in a way not really meaning to but kinda did, so she starts asking Panya questions and he just looks at me, looks back down at his square pancakes and will not answer her. I thought, "Uh-oh these two religious people are not of the same mind of course and he decided well, I just won't go there," and he didn't ... would not talk to her.

I say my goodbyes and Panya says in is cute low voice, "See you in DC." The Aussie church woman comes out into the hall with me and asks if she can give me a brochure on her church so I can see what they have been doing and I say sure and then she says, can I give you a hug? I said, sure and so gives me a bear hug and says God Bless you and with that I left San Diego and the warm sun on my skin and the blue sky but not before making note of an address.

101 Market Street, efficiency apartment for sale, low $200's.remember that address you could live there no question with 70 degrees on your skin in January. Never say never right?
