swissie 5848 Posted September 21, 2010 Share Posted September 21, 2010 Disturbing news and in short: Good friend of mine, living near Kalasin for 9 years with his Thai-Wife found his livestock missing after a regular visa run. Had 2 Buffaloes, 50 Rabitts and a number of Chickens! All gone ! It was the first time he took his Thai-Wife with him on his visa-trip. As a guardian, they hired (on a short time basis) an old but respectable Thai-Woman to guard the property. Upon questioning, she claimed: "I am old and often fall asleep even during daytime and did not hear anything!" - It is not that the loss of his lifestock would put him in the poorhouse, but he feels that someone robbed him of a part of his friends. And on top of it, he seems to think, that his "Thai-Family" may have something to with it, since they were the only ones that knew of the departure (and return) date of him and the wife. Nevermind: To him the subject is closed and he will not engage in animal-raising again. This may concern myself in the near future. I am planning my retirement in Thailand along the same line: Have some animals and take care of the surroundings. But I would dislike the fact,that whenever I have to leave the place I will find myself "Cleaned-Out" upon my return, regardless of "respecable old women" that are supposed to look after things. So then and question: If you find yourself in a situation like this, how do you handle absence-situations as described, as a long time Isaan Resident ? Input, Ideas and Recomendations welcome.
