A MF T-shirt that is:

This part of the wall is the most difficult to hike/climb. Our tour guide warned us to be careful because 3 people died last month trying to hike it. I was the only one from our tour group to succeed. I thought about giving up, but my determination to plant the MF T-shirt on the top/end keeped me motivated to succeed. :rockon: View attachment 20180629_112848.jpg
That.... Is absolutely the best ever! :rockon:

That shirt started in Grand Rapids MN :)

I have to share this with the people who also helped us make those.

Absolutely fantastic way to start the day :)
She has no need to-- I enjoy making her happy.
She is a dear, sweet wife who understands the different roles between man and woman.
She is not materialistic.

Is she Ti, Chinese, or other??

Born and raised in Thailand,
She isn't an "Americanized woman"-- meaning she doesn't try to control the relationship.

Early on-- she informed me that---
Taking care of my needs and making sure I am comfortable and happy are her responsibilities.
Providing for and protecting the family are my responsibilities.
We both are lucky to have found each other.

Grief for being bi-racial---- LOL--- that's seems to be the norm in SF and the goal of many Thai women.
I seem to have the respect of the villagers' because I "lower myself" to do manual labor like fixing the road, picking up trash or riding a bicycle instead of a car.
I am Humble and Quiet.

Originally at a bar---
but got to know her better when one of her friend's invited me on a religious hike.
She was shocked that I wanted to join them. She thought that it would be too difficult for me.
I might be short-- but I have a lot of heart and determination.
She was impressed that I want to learn more about the Thai culture, so she invited me to her farm.
again- this impressed her.
I was impressed by her parents-- I told her-- I married hear because she had good parents.
