    Re: w/c 8th

    morning all,
    a cooler day ahead I hope. thanks for the brew, Mick. The one reason I think retirement is to take social security before it goes away from here. Do you all have the same type of thing? Taxes deducted to reclaim, in part, after you retire? How does all that work in other parts of the world? PQ, what does Canada do? TT, New Zealand?

    off to pay more into my alleged retirement fund..... now looked on by some as an "entitlement", damn right, I'm entitled to it!!

    Re: w/c 8th

    Mae everybody,Mick I noticed accordion right off the bat haha! Can't believe Julie would rather have a wood top on it,I love the tile,make me one yesterday was rather brutal for me,I had all the physical and mental feeling of wanting/needing a drink (or 15 in my case!) It happened at work and I was shaky for a bit,told my friend/coworker about it and she's said she understood she wants to too but remembers how sick even a little makes her and all the little tricks we've tried like drinking early thinking we'd sleep it off,staying hydrated,eating something,etc and none of it feckin ever works! Huge wake up call and I owe her a huge thank you even for that tiny chat,instead I pigged out on some tootsie rolls,the crumbs left in a Pringles can,had a hot chocolate and enjoyed some time with Louie,not quite sure what brought the feeling on? Could have been low blood sugar,could have been my mom's text where she kind of pissed me off cuz she had to take my sister for her flu shot but was bitching to me about why my dad couldn't take her,I told her he's just had surgery 4 weeks ago and when I talked to him last week he told me he's still pretty sore and its harder to get around much,she replied with"well he can sure go down to get his cigarettes!" Meh I love my mom but she's extremely selfish sometimes especially when it comes to Christina for some reason,not sure if it's guilt or maybe some shame over her Down's,who knows,Det I was gonna text you but we were surprisingly busy,Mick asked about the city healing I guess it is but people seem like they're not concerned about their hair right now cuz we've been slow,much love to all sorry for being a thread hog haha,wishing us all a fabulous AF Wednesday
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"
    Drinkin won't help a damn thing! Will only make me sick for DAYS and that ugly, spacey dumb feeling-no thanks!

    Re: w/c 8th

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...glad you had a nice day out with your daughter yesterday.

    Det..."Sam, what i do we best not refer to as music. More like some guy giggling like a nutjob making weird sounds on this thing that he's just started to read the directions for..." LOL, I would pay to see that!

    Mick...although I like the tile top I have to agree with Madam...and interchangeable is an excellent idea. The r & r weekend did wonders for me. Some of my energy is coming back. One of the things the boss said (can't recall right now) made me think he's waiting to see who approaches him for a raise. He is in a tough spot as the provincial government is raising minimum wage by $5.50 and the trickle down effect is going to cause him grief no matter what he does. I'm talking about our hourly paid staff, not moi. Snow stated around noon today, supposed to get a dump overnight with a cold north wind. Should clear out sometime tomorrow probably after I get back from my echo cardiogram!

    Sam...yup we pay into a Canada Pension Plan which has been really mismanaged. People are worried there won't be any money when they hit 65. Course the government wants to increase that to 67. I took partial payments at 60 so at least I'm getting some of it.

    Pauly...now I have to read back and find the accordion! What a great friend to have and well done you for reaching out to her instead of it! I'm proud of you. My trigger was always anger. It went something like this...F you, I'll show you, I'm going to get drunk! I really appreciate your post as I too tried all those little tricks and it helps to be reminded. Hope you had a fabulous Wednesday.

    Got a call from the Doc's office after my blood work and she thinks I might be low in B12. Duh! I could have told her that. She wants more blood work done and faxed the req. to the lab. I'll get it done but not in a snow storm! I'll see what the weather's like after the echo. Looking forward to cozying up on the couch with my book. Have a peaceful evening all....PPQP

    Re: w/c 8th

    Good evening Abbers,

    No snow here, just rain & plenty of humidity.

    Det, that soup recipe has a sh*t ton of garlic in it - I dare you to add even more, ha ha!! If you do decide to make the soup, cut the recipe in half for yourself or you'll be eating it until Christmas, ha ha!

    Mick, I don't remember, do you still have your greenhouse? Can you put your potted fruit trees in the greenhouse for the winter? Or the garage maybe?
    Nice job on changing to tile to wood, cool.

    Sam, we have had the same worries about SS so we've decided to start ours up early. YB is already getting his & mine will start in January. I am not going to let those GOP thieves & bastards in DC squander away my retirement funds

    Pauly, you had a momentary thought of drinking AT your Mom yesterday. I am glad that you & your friend worked thru it together. Good for both of you!!!!
    Is there anyone else that could help with your sister's needs? Whatever your Mom's reasoning or lack of motivation is it shouldn't be your sister's problem, right?
    Keep your thoughts positive Pauly

    PQ, I hope you can travel safely for your testing, geez. I hope you don't have to go too far.
    About B12 - I have taken SL tablets & also have it is a spray form. I definitely feel better when I use it.

    Hello to anyone else who wands by & wish everyone a nice night.

    top ten time wasting 999 calls to Devon and Cornwall police
    1. ''The Chinese takeaway I ordered is 45 minutes late. I want you to prosecute the takeaway for ripping me off.''
    2. ''My power has gone off. Will my Sarah Lee gateau defrost in the freezer if I keep the door shut and how long would it take?''
    3. ''Can one of your officers come around to my house to tell my sons to calm down?''
    4. One night during the summer 15 999 calls were made all reporting UFOs in the sky over Cornwall. It turned out the spectacle was lights and lasers from a concert at the Eden Project.
    5. ''I can see a really rare bird sitting on top of a telegraph pole – who shall I ring?''
    6. ''I bought a pair of jeans at a shop last week and took them back but the shop won't give me a refund.''
    7. ''There's been a pigeon in my back garden for the past three days – it's got a tag on.''
    8. ''I have lost my shoplifting ticket I was given when I was arrested last week.''
    9. ''Can you put me in touch with whoever deals with noise pollution as there is a builder using an angle grinder outside?''
    10. A woman dialled 999 after waking up with her duvet covering her head and panicking.
    af since the fourth of July 2012...howzat then America..now proudly marching into year 5..done that one..now bimbling into year 6..tick ..done that one too..as he casually strolls into numero 7

    Re: w/c 8th

    morning all
    a rainy day here in ol Virginny. we need it badly. terrible night's sleep, too much on the ol brain.... looking at a 4 day hike along the AT nearby with my son, who recently informed me he's moving away, wants to go to Hawaii. that's not happening for at least a year, if it happens at all. but our hike happens in November if it is not all rainy and stuff.

    Mick, very amazing finds you got there.

    off to work... be well friends, good on you for not taking that drink, Pauly.

    Re: w/c 8th

    Mae everybody,Mick interesting 999 calls,some people are so crazy I swear,nice pics Sam,why Hawaii! So darn expensive there,we have a lot of transplants from Hawaii here and a lot of them wish they could be back home but can't afford it,I think its beautiful but afraid I'd get island fever and feel trapped Lav all of my sister's care landed on my brother when Jon died and my dad didn't want to be in his house,so they had been staying with my bro,his 3 kids and very pregnant wife since then in his small 3 bedroom house,now she's had the baby,dad's back home recovering and Christina is still occupying one of the bedrooms,it just seems like a lot of work for my brother and his wife,mom has 2 spare rooms but she's not up to be a caregiver and I don't think anybody trusts her especially after Chris had those seizures back in July,it's a mess but not much I can do to change it anyways,PQ,what was dinner last night? I had mini corn dogs and kraft Mac and cheese,I haven't had a corn dog in over a year,,forgot how good they can be! Det,did you make Lavs soup? Much love to all and wishes for a nice AF Thursday
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink
