Does anybody remember me?

Hello, hello?  Is this thing on?  I'm surprised this thing still works.  I haven't been around the old blogger-sphere a lot lately.  I should have posted some things from my trip to America, but somehow I never got around to it.

Let's see . . . .  Oh, my landlady (and landlord) are coming over tomorrow.  Not an unusual occurrence, but mine are visiting all the way from England.  But they are back for a visit so they are coming by the old homestead.  As you can imagine, I have been busy cleaning for the last week.  I want to give the impression that I am managing their property well.  Naaah, it actually looks pretty good.  But we do need to sort out a couple of small things.

I have a three day weekend this week.  (Normally I only get one day off a week.  Poor me.)  I also have a week off week after next.  Unfortunately that also means no pay for a week and two weekends, which means I'll be living on beans and vegetables for the next few weeks.  Oh, I do that all the time already. 

During my off week I am planning my first overnight bike trip.  I will be going from Chiang Mai to Phrao, then the next day from Phrao to Chiang Dao, and the third day from Chiang Dao back to Chiang Mai.  Altogether it will be about 200 miles.  I think I am going to be sore when I get back.  I'll have to see how it goes.  My friend wants me to do a trip with him to Chiang Rai in December, but that would be more like a 500 mile trip, so I don't know if I am up for it.
