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

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.
Then there was this:
