    What a day. Got to work and logged a tech call for our security system. Didn't hear from anyone so at 1pm called to find out what was going on. The woman I talked to had me do some tests on the unit and it was decided that there was nothing wrong. She suggested it might be our fire alarms, so I called our fire company and logged a tech call. At 4pm called to find out what was going on and was told that they were swamped with calls today and she would call one of the tech's to find out if they would be able to make it out. When she called back and told me that it wouldn't be until tomorrow I asked her if there was anyway I could turn the alarm off at the panel. She said she would get someone to call me back. When a manager called back he said yes and we went through the panel's menu only to discover there was nothing wrong. So the search was on to find out what the hell it was. Turns out it was low batteries in a carbon monoxide detector that was in the main hallway. With the echo's in the building it took us awhile to figure it out. So I've been listening to a VERY LOUD PIERCING BEEP every 30 seconds for 10 hours. Felt like I was being water boarded! Most of the staff were heading home for a drink and I totally understood how they felt, but a drink wasn't on my radar. I'm home for left over spaghetti and peace and quiet!!!!

    Thanks for the rant and I hope we all have a peaceful evening....PPQP

    Ahoy ABeroonikins,

    oh my, crazy weather is upon the high desert. just on the way home alerts for tornado (one very close in Tahoe) large hail,
    very heavy rain and insane wind. My house is still here thankfully.

    PPQ, sounds like your day was quite trying! I can just imagine.

    Pauly, no lighting pics yet... too many clouds but you can bet I'll be checking for a photo op.

    Mick, very neat info on the coin...rare and old. You don't sell them?

    another night of not sleeping great... I just don't get it. hoping again for some decent rest tonight.
    At least I don't have to fear the AL nightmares I used to get. no fun.

    so tired I think I'll make breakfast for dinner. perfecto. Don't think there will be many complaints
    since I'm solo

    gnight loves

    Re: w/c 10th

    Good evening Abbers,

    Oh PQ, I feel sorry for you!
    We have been thru the same thing with the alarm system in our house
    It was so bad one day we had the fire company here checking to be sure we were OK. I thought my brain would explode, it was awful. I had a new system put in - screw that sh*t!
    The original system was only a few years old but obviously flawed. Enjoy the peace & quiet & spaghetti

    Mick, no, I really don't have the energy left for a puppy sorry to say. Maybe an adult dog from a rescue some day, maybe....
    Congrats on your awesome coins. Maybe you will want to sell some of them some day!

    Pauly, I didn't read your other post. Your Dad had surgery today? I hope it went well & he recovers quickly.

    Hello to the rest of the crew & hope everyone is doing OK.
    Just light rain & fog here - Irma leftovers......

    MAE ALL...

    Det...I hope you were able to get a decent sleep last night. And the crazy weather continues. I hope you are safe.

    Lav...hopefully it will be a quiet day today.

    Mick...I sure hope the weather breaks for you and you're able to get away next week. We now have frost warnings in effect, snow in the foothills and 32F temps in the forecast.

    Pauly...glad to hear your Dad is ok. Hope things are improving at work.

    ugh! things went downhill fast last night. Wasn't feeling great so thought a hot shower would help but got all soaped up
    and the power went out, so no water pressure and soap all over. neato! powered stayed out for a couple hours and I progressively
    developed a nasty cold so I'm off today snotting like a snot monster. oh well.

    Mick, love to catch a pic of yer bunnies with snorkels, that would be precious.

    PPQ are you going in for lasik operation?

    Pauly, tornado warning but I didn't see any...and I was looking. still got plenty of moisture tho.

    arriety then, spicy soup and a lay down for moi.

    Re: w/c 10th

    Good evening Abbers,

    Mick, rain - no rain? At least you aren't having hurricanes & tornados & such
    I haven't seen any evidence of rats around the chicken house lately, thank goodness. Now YB tells me that the giant ground hog that has taken up residence there is keeping the rats away. That's good because the ground hog is a lot cuter than a rat!!!

    Det, I think we cross posted last night. Sorry about your waterless shower, that's nasty.
    I hope your cold clears up quickly, the spicy soup should do wonders for you

    PQ, glad you had a quieter day today, jeez!

    Pauly, glad your Dad is OK & I hope you are too!

    Well, tomorrow is Friday & I will meet the grandsons after school & bring them here for a few hours. I haven't seen them or talked to them since they started their school year so hopefully we can get caught up, haha!
    Have a decent night everyone.

    MAE ALL...

    Det...was a little worried when I read the start of your post. Losing power in the middle of your shower sucks but at least we're not reading about a hangover. Good job. I'm having cataract surgery on one eye. The drops I use for my iritis has created a cataract on steroids! Hope the spicy soup helped and you're feeling better today.

    Lav...I'd be keeping the giant ground hog around! We don't have rats in Alberta although some get in with feed transports they're eliminated right away. Enjoy the grandkids I'm sure they'll have lots to tell you.

    Mick...good news with the eye checkup and the surgery is a go for Oct 24th. The campsite looks ace and I'm glad the plan is still on. Your old CFB Suffield stomping grounds is in the news They detonated an unexploded artillery shell which resulted in a huge grass fire which killed around 130 cattle and forced the evacuation of area ranchers. This is going to be devastating because the land was used to feed wintering communal cattle. Here's a link for you 'The most horrific scene': Alberta ranchers take aim at CFB Suffield for grass fire that destroyed livestock - Calgary - CBC News

    With September being the busiest time of year for me I was ticked when the boss asked me to submit a volunteer recognition nomination. I took a look at it yesterday and decided nope, if he wants this done he can do it himself. Instant stress relief and I don't give a rat's ass what he thinks about it. LOL Glad it's Friday and tomorrow will bring another trip to the lab with my MIL. At least that will bring my obligations to an end for another 3 months unless I find a family Dr. for her. Hope we all have a Fantastic Friday....PPQP
