Sunday Scans: On the roof


is thinking about putting together a new meme, Sunday Scans, just for scanned photos, I wonder if there would be any interest if I did it.

Rainfield from Penang Malaysia posted a photo of Macque monkeys in Penang. I told him I had such monkeys come to my house when i was living in Singapore. I couldn't find my photos, but I had two legged visitors. They were at the exact spot when the monkeys after stealing my jar of peanuts from my lounge, climbed up my neighbour's roof, and gingerly sat there eating the peanuts.

That roof looks very high up. I used to paint houses, and I never liked being that high up. We never had any ropes or anything to keep us safe - it was just climb and paint.

This is scary stuff, but it looks like they have a safety harness. We know two men who fell off roffs and broke their necks, sometimes men need to remember they are not monkies.

Yes, it is high. It was 5 stories high. The minimum you don't need an elevator. These are foreign Thai workers. Life there is cheap, if they fall and die, the family gets a small compensation.

I was looking for a photo which shows the apartment block. But too many photos and in too many computers. I will do it another time.

We were lucky, my husband was a professor, we didn't have to stay in tall apartment blocks. We were a double storey maisonette. We chose the upstairs, where snakes can't come.

Getting on roofs is scary!
