While I recover from another weekend, I thought I would post the most appropriate photo taken by Michael while waiting at traffic lights, that sums up the weekend ... like he says, in Taipei, you don't need to go looking for crazy things, the crazy things come to you.

More photos on the way soon.

Doggles. My new word. And happy birthday to me!

Fat Cat

DaTou ... "get me a beer"

DaTou , our wife-beating house cat, sits and watches TV

Update: Datou is renamed 'Fatou' and now sports extra artwork by Abe!

Hello Kitty

Sorry, some entirely gratuitous photos of our two house cats, DaTou and Tripod. I think this is the beginning of the end.

Tripod, who is simply a ball of delightful cuteness

... and then there is DaTou, dark lord of the cat underworld.

He displays rodent-like tendencies, including biting his way into boxes, creating almost perfectly circular holes along the way. Deeply strange.

And there he sits, plotting his revenge...

I need to kick start my blogging again so the best way to do this is to simply upload some photos. So, here are some amusing things that I have seen on my travels of late.

A labrador seen near Danshui - shaved clean of any dignity

Dad bought this in Hong Kong ... amazing

On the way home, I snatched this photo of a guy who could hardly turn he had so much foam loaded onto his scooter

One of the local tradesmen specialises in brooms and hats and taps and bowls. As you begin to tune into Chinese you begin to hear the sounds of 'buo li' (glass) and other household items blairing (is that a new verb?) out of pre-recorded loud-hailers

Taiwanese people like food. Taiwanese people like weapons. Taiwanese people like food shaped like weapons. (stretching the truth for the benefit of the blog)
