Edith Clampton (Mrs)

Post by Bamboo Grove » Sun Jan 01, 2017 6:03 pm

I was reading the old Crutch's article today, where he mentioned this famous (non-existing) lady from the early 90's. Who else remembers her? It could have been Crutch himself.

Oh yes. Used to read her letters to the Post at least once a week. Life was simpler here then, and arguably more fun. :D Pete :cheers:

And if I remember correctly, we were younger then, too. :cheers:

Don't forget Crutch's columns about Ms Yasothon. Just as funny if not more so than Edith. :D

Your above post bamboo is from a 2013 thread, "Life with the Maid". Pete :cheers:

Needs to be noted that with both of the above characters, we (or at least I) did all the reading with a hard copy of the Post in hand each morning. I only started to have very limited internet dial up connections here in 1996 and not sure when the Post came on-line? I don't think it was until well after year 2000. Pete :cheers:

Yes, I liked Ms Yasothon and the stories about Crutch's dog. Sgt Nop, however was never my favourite. I think I read the paper version of BP until the day I left Thailand in 2008.

Outside of Bangkok it's difficult to find an agency any longer who home delivers the Post, or any newspaper. It may be a problem in Bangkok also. Pete :cheers:

Down here in Bang Saphan we haven't had the post in over a month. When I asked the seller, always got "next week", then "next year". Haven't checked in a couple days though
