Gong

Gong

Ray is no fool!

 

After noticing many things in the shopping trolley with the word "Baby" on the packaging, he began to suspect that changes were imminent in our Family situation.

 

A quick exploration of Na's anatomy indicated no change in shape.

 

Later Ray went sleuthing about the house, though, and found that his suspicions, were well-founded...here is a healthy-looking 2 month baby boy!

 

Backstory:

We had a foster-daughter, Yaow, who lived with us for many years in Bangkok..she eventually earned a degree at one of Bangkok's universities, and went off to make a life according to her specifications. In time, she met a bloke [from Myanmar] and they made a baby [Gong]. Soon they discovered living in Bangkok on one small salary is not possible, so came to the conclusion they needed to find foster parents for Gong so they could get back into a two small salaries lifestyle. Now Gong has joined our family and it is probable he will be with us for at least several years.

So you & Na have become parents at long last. Well I suppose young Gong is going to need a Mom & Pop, whether biologically related or not
Ray: Ha Ha

One more Lad to go with the 16 year old [Mawin] we already have, Chris.

He will be my Son for at least a few years...time enough, I think, to teach Him English, how to open crown seals on beer bottles, how to mend bicycle tyre punctures...a few essentials like that...

I never fail to be impressed and amazed by your kindness (and madness). I hope that Gong will not detract you for your duties of looking after the cats, dogs, fish, elephants, snakes, pandas, polar bears and whatever other waifs and strays you have adopted over the years.
Ray: I am feeling rather pleased to be in this position [again], Alan...the rest of the menagerie will sort out a new pecking order...
Ahhhh! And all is revealed! Congratulations, Ray! smile
Ray: Thank you, Elizabeth.

I am feeling rather pleased about this, and useful.
Quelle chance pour ce petit enfant d'avoir trouve des parents disponibles rien que pour lui ..
Felicitations et surtout bienvenu à  Gong
Ray: Oui ... et quelle chance pour nous d'avoir une opportunité comme celle-ci, Claudine.
I am sure you will rise to the challenge Ray.
Ray: I expect we will have a lot of fun, Bill.
Life holds surprises, Ray smile
Ray: Nothing is written, Tom...
I think this is a fine thing you and Na are doing, so much better than Gong having to go in a childrens home, but all those sleepless nights again, I'm not sure I could be doing with that at our senior age.
Ray: Life is good, Brian, and I think it just got better.

Thailand offers Life opportunities that don't happen in many other countries.
It's so good of you to foster little Gong.
Ray: He should keep us on our toes for a few years, Larry.

All of the comments made together, Ray and I know this will give both you and Na so much pleasure to be able to do good to Gong and your foster daughter. You will give him a good home.
Ray: A new chapter in the Book of Life, Astrid...I am sure there will be challenges, but I am confident the + side of the ledger will be ascendant.

i can imagine that baby related items took precedence over items such as canned beer in the shopping cart, Ray. i like those chubby wrists very much.
Ray: Gong seems robust and socially adept, Ayush. I am already impressed with how he controls his environment.
Heartiest congratulations on your new family member. I look forward to seeing him grow.
Ray: This has got to be fun, Mary! smile
