2 times in 1 week i know its amazing

So I'm figuring that while i have internet access i should take advantage of it
Here are some old pictures from site and other places enjoy...

These are some of the kids from my neighborhood... they were the ones who seranaded me in May (right after I moved into my house) with a fantastic rendition of "Jingle Bells" (The kid in the front left corner is absolutely adorable in this picture)

This is Bow she is the kid that spends ALL of her free time at my house... the only way to keep her out is to close my gate/front door... she is so cute and i play Phase 10 dice with her on a weekly basis, by the way she is 11

These are some of my Volunteer friends... The weird hand thing is something that many kids do in thailand if you take their picture... so we adopted it.

Also just as an update... My cat Eddie was killed by the dogs outside my house about 3 months ago... since then i have gotten another cat her name is Maybelle (named by Wesley) with the nickname of May... she is terribly cute... and i will post a picture of her at some point... i would say soon but we all know that would be a lie... ;)

alright bye again
love ya miss ya

Sorry... Nuf said

I know I know its been forever and im sorry... but with the horrible internet access at my site and such its hard... although i know 4 months is pushing it...
Well i went to India and then came back... several months ago
It was amazing although i was still happy to come back to Thailand the only thing that would have been better would have been getting to come to America to see everyone...
My mom is currently in Thailand but not with me... she is doing her Healing the Children gig in Bangkok, although i was able to tag along for a couple of days and it was amazing... while I prepare for my first big event/project in Peace Corps, the HIV/AIDS Camp that Wesley and I are planning that is going to be held next week... mom will be flying up to me on Saturday for a week of "Becky is Super Busy" Fun.
Also the night that Mom flew in the new group of Trainees came in, so my mom came to the airport to greet them with all of us... and here are some pictures. Sorry they are so small... I took them from a friend's website...

Lets spin Paulo around in a luggage cart after a few beers and see if its still a good idea afterword... The answer to that is... NO ( the other two dudes in this picture are Tex and Mark)

Bonnie and I with some welcome signs

This is my friend Welcome... as you can see she was amazingly creative with the sign she came up with.

And then as the buses with the new Trainees left we felt that the situation warrented a dance session...

well I have been here for a year already and I only have 15 months to go... before you know it ill be back stateside to bother y'all in person... but for the time being...
I love you and miss you
See most of you in July when I come home to see Sab tie the knot
