In a post last week FBF mentioned that the ASEAN Summit was going to happen in a matter of days. Well, time flies when you’re having fun and even more so when you’re so old that keeping up with the years is difficult and the months are downright impossible and the days just get lost… But, no matter, the Mrs. is never sure what season it is and she comes from a family of agriculturists.
So, we’ll try again and state that the ASEAN Summit will be in Hua Hin in October and the powers that be are getting ready. There was an announcement on the Bo Fai loudspeaker today that all motorists should report to the village office with their ID card and car registration number so that during the ASEAN meeting they can sail through any check points…
FBF is sure that this will be as effective as the recording of cell phone numbers led to the dramatic decrease in bombings in Southern Thailand and the smooth crossing of the US borders when special ID cards were issued to those who live along that border.
OK, they’re just doing their job in the best way they know how. If the best laid plans just worked once in a while the world would be a better place, once in a while. In the meantime, they lay plans and we poke fun.
Be a good scout, register your cell phone and car and be careful out there, the ASEANs are coming.
