I have a tiger by the tail - really!

When one thinks about Thailand one usually visualizes Phuket’s crowded warm tropical beaches, the Phi Phi Islands, or which just happens to be  on my Bucket List (item 142),the bridge over the river Kwaii.  If you aren’t familiar with it, you’re under 60.  It’s from the 1957 Academy award winning film of the same name – I saw it about a dozen times at the Stanley Theatre in Vancouver when I was twelve.   I would have seen it more, but I was banned from the theatre due to the infamous “candy throwing incident” which I would like to forget – unfortunately the theatre owner didn’t forget about it for nearly ten years.
