Yes, you are free to steal these pictures.

Bought this Nepali waistcoat, over a month ago, when we were in New Port, Rhode Island. There was a real cool Nepali shop on Thames St.

This was the first time I got to wear. I like it — and that is all that matters. As some of you know, I really do NOT care what others think of I. SMILE.

I wanted to share it with you. Perfect for today. I like waistcoats. I think this one will get a fair amount of use over the next few weeks. SMILE.

Teischan’s attending a one-week Summer ‘Art Camp’ at ‘Kimball Jenkins‘ in Concord, and rather than coming home after dropping her off, I have opted to spend 6-hours a day in Concord and explore. It has been a blast. Found all sorts of neat places and met some interesting people (as is my wont).

Today, I stopped at the ‘Concord Mart’ at N. Main St., an ‘International Grocery Store‘, to see what they have. Run by a Nepali gentleman. We got talking. I spotted this v. neat prayer wheel he had by his cash register. It was awfully cute. I wanted one. I like solar powered ‘toys’ and this was one of the nicest I have seen.

I got one. SMILE. It wasn’t $1! SMILE.

IF you want one too, let me know. I think I can get YOU one too.

I like most Brits having nothing but undisguised admiration, respect and gratitude for the Gurkhas — who for so long have fought beside us.

I mentioned them in this post about British Commonwealth Troops in WW I (from which the Poppy Tradition arises) since they were such an integral force in that war — as in so many other wars.

So today I went in search of Gurkhas with Poppies pictures.
I lucked out. I am so happy.

From the ‘NepaliSamajUK.com’ photo gallery. Click to access. They have LOADS more pictures.

That this was Remembrance Day for ex-Gurkhas at Llanelli, Wales just made my day! Many don’t appreciate it, but I am Welsh. My underlying accent is not from Ceylon, it is a Ceylon accent modulated by Welsh. I spent 3 of my most riotous years of my life in Swansea, Wales. Llanelli wasn’t far away. I have been to Llanelli, visited the Rugby club and even more importantly was able to say ‘Llanelli’ correctly, saying like a true Welshman.

So this great, but I always associate Llanelli with greatness — not just on the rugby field.
