Slightly off subject but I seen a squirrel today that was definitely unusal in our area.  Body normal grey colour but the tail was the bushiest tail I've ever seen on squirrel and bright white.

Weird world getting weirder.

Blue snake,  well maybe a green snake that went up the drain of the local hairdresser.

Get tagged by that one, you'll win more than the lottery.

Re: Thai up-country superstitious practices, Netflix is on a roll lately putting up old(er) and off-beat films.  Saw one yesterday called Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (2010).   A Thai/French/UK indy type production that rolls along slowly, but have to admit, I made it to the end and rather enjoyed it.  If you like Thai life and death superstitions, praying to snakes for the Lotto, red-eyed monkey man forest ghosts and the old girl's character getting (tastefully) shagged in a beautiful mountain pond by a reincarnated Pla-Duc (catfish), then you'll enjoy this one.  ✌️
