    Friday it is!

    Hi there everyone- having a quick read over breakfast and see that 2 threads started on Thursday so rather than post on one or both, I will start the Friday, lets get into the weekend, thread - its almost 9 hours into Friday where I live anyway.
    Hope you get those toothies sorted before Christmas Mick. What a bloody (!!) long process.
    Headaches SK? Should be gone by now I hope.
    Thinking of you on the job front PQ - because I know how it is. Seriously, this has been the hardest time in my career and it aint over yet.
    But I think the rats (touch wood) may have gone. No noise lately - so i think the bait stations in the bushes did it. Pie, we have a cat, and he spends a lot of time roaming outdoors but he has never caught anything, as far as I am aware. I guess the positive side of that is that he does not terrorize the birds. He is very timid (traumatized before we got him from SPCA years ago) and rather stupid IMO. Well no cat is stupid of course!
    Pauly - I think most Mums are nosy with their kids - and we will always worry about them. My daughter likes to act all independent and thats fine, but then she asks for help, and then gets grumpy because I over-do it. I dont think I will ever get the right balance. Still yesterday her and I had a really lovely walk- combined it with a driving lesson. I always try to avoid talking about tricky subjects when we have walks together - want to enjoy the space and time together.
    Sam - thanks for starting the thread. You brave man!
    Det - bit early for you to post on Friday but hope the week has gone well.
    Lav - getting ready for the weekend.
    OK - hello to all others and sorry if I missed you - but I better get back to my lovely stressful job.
    Be good and have a lovely Friday when it rolls your way!

    hiya starty ...8 weeks ...well done you ..right folks offski big shout to all...

    Little grand daughter: What age are you Granny ?
    Granny:..I don't really know, darling
    Little grand daughter" Look in your knickers granny, it says 8 to 10 years in mine.

    All eyes were on the radiant bride as her father escorted her down the aisle. They reached the altar and the waiting groom. The bride kissed her father and placed something in his hand. The guest sitting in the front pews responded with ripples of laughter. Even the priest smiled broadly. As her father gave her away in marriage, the bride gave him back his credit card.

    A blonde was playing Trivial Pursuit one night. It was her turn. She rolled the dice and she landed on "Science & Nature."
    Her question was, "If you are in a vacuum and someone calls your name, can you hear it?"
    She thought for a time and then asked, "Is it on or off?

    Paddy shouted at his neighbour Hughie "Can u ask ur dog to shut up ! He has been barking non-stop this several hours. I have a severe headache from last nite's drinkin and tryin hard to catch up on some sleep "
    Hughie replied "I am sure my dog will calm down as soon as you get out of his kennel "

    “I needed a password eight characters long so I picked Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”

    Went into a pet shop same day as I bought my turkey for Xmas. Lazy git behind the counter didn't even acknowledge me. Ahem!!! I said, "can I buy a budgie? "Take you pick he said".. I said I wanted the one on the very top shelf. He said " FFS cant you buy one lower down? I said, "no, I want that one". He said, "this means I have to get the steps out and climb up there. I said ,"look, If it makes you feel any better I'll pay the same as I paid for this 26lb turkey." Seeing his chance to make a killing he got the steps, climbed and got the budgie and put it on the counter. "Right sir"! he said, "How much did you pay for the turkey? I said," 1.25 a pound, pop him on the scales please you lazy bstard."

    The Agony of Aging
    Yesterday morning I stopped in to visit my aging friend.
    He was busy covering his penis with black shoe polish.
    I said to him, "You better get your hearing checked,
    The radio presenter said "Don't forget to turn your clock back". this weekend.

    Early greetings ABerooos!

    woke up before alarm at 5;30 so putzing around and waking slowly here.

    TTops, thanks for booting us into gear Kiwi style.

    Mick, you sure don't want Xmas soup as your only holiday treat. Heal quickly mate.

    rats? hmmm... we always just used big rat traps in Aussie where we had jurassic rats for sure.

    most of the crew is taking the day off as it's Nevada day but I need the bux so it should be a nice quiet work day
    I hope. Hands are so sore from working on ornery little springs/pins etc but it's good satisfying work and I can't complain.

    raining like mad here and will be through the weekend... oh well. Guess it's movies and popcorn again

    Will be back after work to check in with all yoos folks

    be well loves

    MAE ALL....

    TT...thanks for starting the thread and eliminating any confusion this morning. LOL Thought you'd solved the rat problem but I guess not eh? Our website crashed last night so it's been a day of dealing with hosting company, website designer and IT support. The day just flew by.

    Mick...love the vino flower pot. Well done, there's no end to your talents. Boss is supposed to be back to work on Monday so I may just take Tuesday off. LOL Definitely have to make some me time.

    Det...great to see you posting in the morning. Do you get time and a half for working the NV holiday. I'm glad the work is satisfying. Keep up the good work.

    Pauly...ended up grilling a steak with potatoes and cheese covered broccoli. The chef was in at work today so I've brought home fresh salmon for supper tonight. Love it when I don't have to figure out what to make. Hope you had a great Friday.

    Time to get the PJ's on and relax. Have a restful evening all....PPQP

    Good evening Abbers,

    I am still 'at work' & it will soon be 9 pm. Getting too old for all this OT, ha ha!!

    TT, thanks for the startup. Sorry the rats haven't vacated the premises yet. No rats or scorpions here just plenty of field mice, ground hogs & other ugly things
    I hoppe you catch them soon.

    Mick, nice job on the flower arrangement. You are one talented guy
    I haven't had time to play in the greenhouse yet but I did notice weeds growing up thru the floor the other day. How is tgat possible with a concrete foundation with 4 inches of stone on top & another 3 inches of stone dust compacted on top of that?? Crazy, ha ha!!

    Det, you were ip early! Hope your fingers get some rest this weekend!

    Pauly, you can move in here if you don't mind helping out with the chicken chores, ha ha!

    PQ, did uou get snow this week? I thought I heard something on the news.
    I hope you getvtons of me time this weekend!!

    Hello to the rest of the crew & wishing everyone a peaceful night!
    Time to turn the machine off, I am tired.
