Bill-we're disappointed whenever you post in prose. Has your peotice license been suspended? You might E-mail Tong to see if you can get a day with her to the secret place. I assure you it would be great.

Please be forgivin
As I must be a splippin
I did not post in prose
Not in the mood I suppose
Next time I shall conform
To what I gather is now the norm!

Sounds like a great plan. We expect your entire trip report to be in verse...

The poetry he foregoes
In fact, the post was in prose.
Things that are squeezed into verse
Are strange, but it could get worse.

For instance, Bob could try this
But the meter he would miss.
Cause it's hard to write zingers
When one's counting on fingers.

and harder still,
composing prose,
without no iambs,
and just 10 toes.

Come on, you guys,
Is this really wise?

I fear being disgraced
By a mis-rhymed thread that's erased!

The secret place is a seaside village about 1 hour 15 minutes from BKK. She takes you there and you go out in a long taled boat into the Gulf of Siam. Part of the ride is into an inlet where you feed wild monkeys. You cruise into the Gulf observe and talk to fishermen and eat lunch at a wonderful bamboo house built on stilts in the water. Reed and his wife serve a super lunch. It's an amazing place. Several posters have been there.
