"Mu Bite and me in a Karen (pronounced Ka - rin) village in Northwest Thailand.
Mu Bite was concerned that I did not have pitch pine in my village in my country.
Whenever the villagers are going to be out after dark they carry a handful of pitch pine kindling
so that they can light it in the fire before going to their little hut.
This picture was taken the morning that I was leaving Prosperity Fields and heading on to Striped Creek. Mu Bite had just gotten married the night before. But here she came running down the hill to give me four logs of pitch pine the size of the one you see here so that I could take them to my village. There was not way that I could hurt her feelings, so I carried the four logs with me to the next village.
This was certainly one of the kindest, most thoughtful things that anyone has ever done for me!
This is crossing a river in the Southern Philippines on the Island of Mindanao while visiting the Manobo tribes (in the 70s sometime).

The one in the military uniform/wedding is my brother Howard and his British war bride, Betty. Howard is my brother and Mike's son. Howard and Betty were married in 1945 in Grantham, Linconshire, England. As a point of interest: Maggie Thather's (former British P.M.) father signed the paper for Betty to immigrate to America. How's that for name dropping
