    Good evening Abbers,

    We just had day two of unusually hot weather for February, so weird. We actually had the AC on in the truck today while out on errands.
    Now we will be dealing with four days of rain, oh boy!

    TT, if that Italian meal was all stuffed with cheese the way it usually is here in the US I wouldn't have been able to eat any of it, haha! I hope you enjoy your conference!

    PQ, the last words out of my DIL's mouth as she was screaming at me in my driveway were: 'You can call me bipolar'. That was nearly 18 months ago & I can only imagine things haven't improved a whole lot (from what I've heard). Yes, she's a piece of work
    She is very intelligent & has gotten a good education but suddenly she is SO much better than everyone else. She's forgotten that I helped her along the way. Life is definitely more peaceful since she's decided we are unworthy of her time or presence, ha ha.

    Hello to Pie, how's things?

    Mick, I hope you are drinking tea & enjoying the view

    Det & Pauly, please check in, we miss you!

    Have a nice night everyone.

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...if you take my snow I'll take your rain. It is a known fact that Bipolar affects highly intelligent people. My brother employed 5 bipolar engineers and as long as they followed their medication regime he wouldn't trade them for anything. The problem of course is they figure they're smarter than everyone else and don't need meds.

    Pi...did the sales go through? Are you rolling in the green? LOL

    Pauly...hope you're doing ok and we'll see you back soon.

    Det...are you still on the recovery trail? Hope so.

    Early into work today have a project on the go I want to get back to. Shout out to the rest of the gang....PPQP

    Re: w/c 18th

    Hi folks. Conference over and now back to writing. The conference was in town so no travelling which was good. Yes the meal was very cheesy which is why I limited my intake. Also doesn't agree with me. But I can eat some cheese. Its my daughters 20th birthday tomorrow (saturday) and she wants to go on a long drive into the country and have a picnic with us. Then in the evening she will go to a music gig with her pals. I found some lovely earrings for her and have lots of practical presents. Have to make a birthday cake tonight.

    I won't comment on the issue of teachers being armed with guns. As an outsider it all seems so alien. Good to see young people making a stand for sanity on this. But the US is becoming so divided.

    More AL at a function last night. When I said to someone that I didn't drink, he responded by saying 'how boring'. I made it into a joke and said are you saying I'm boring? My companions all laughed and warned this guy not to even try to take me on.. they knew me and I don't think they would accuse me of being boring.
    Then I warned him that I must be really boring because I am a teetotal vegetarian. More laughter.
    Its ok I can wear it.
    How are you doing Det? Please drop by.
    Hi there PQ, Pie, Pauly, Lav, Mick and all others. Sam - what are you up to??

    Re: w/c 18th

    Good evening Abbers,

    A drop of 40 degrees overnight has made it feel like winter once again, oh well. I wasn’t really ready for heat & humidity anyway, ha ha!

    PQ, I was in the midst of responding to your message when it disappeared.
    I have to tell you it was just strange to watch the changes develop in my DIL, starting shortly after the birth of the second grandson. I also came to find out that her birth mother suffers from it too. We haven’t heard from her adoptive parents since all this sh*t went down.
    All I can say is I’m not taking any responsibility for her blowup. She certainly aimed it at me but I did not create her insecurities. That’s pure BS
    My son is managing but I feel sorry for him. I’m trying to keep an eye on the boys as well. Frustrating, to say the least!

    TT, I had to smile when you said ‘I can wear it’
    That’s exactly how I feel as well, good for you!
    Happy birthday to your daughter, enjoy your picnic this weekend.
    The call for teachers to arm themselves is going over like a fart in chuch - they don’t want to do it, it’s not going to happen.
    Looks like Trump & his party of gun lovers will have to think of something else.
    Pauly, glad to see you once again!

    Det, can you check in with us, please?

    Hello to Mick, Pie, Sam & everyone.

    Have a peaceful night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...aw there you are. Thanks for popping in and I'm glad you're ok.

    TT...glad you didn't have to travel for the conference. Your daughter sounds lovely. What a nice "present" to give to you guys. Spending time is the best. Teachers with guns sounds alien to me too, I am grateful for Canada's gun laws. Good for you making the "how boring" comment into a joke. I've noticed that not drinking is more the norm these days and everyone is always having a good time.

    Lav...saw you were online so waited for your post. Although they don't know why people get it, including heredity, they do find that most have "addictive qualities". Guess I just wasn't smart enough! LOL You are sooo right not taking any responsibility for the BS. For years I felt it was all my fault, if only I'd done...if only I hadn't done...etc. Talk about walking on egg shells! I feel for your son and keeping an eye on the g/kids is a good idea.

    Det...I echo the feelings of the group, please check in.

    Heard the saying "Best laid plans...." well that was today. Even with the early start, nothing accomplished, except it didn't stress me out! There's always tomorrow. Shout out to Pi, Sam and Mick...have a peaceful evening all....PPQP
