    MAE ALL...

    The pics didn't work. Were they of the Merlin? Looked it up to find it's a small species of falcon. Who knew, they look like little budgie birds. By the sounds of it you'll have to keep your camera/phone handy if you're getting all those visitors. Keeping it together Mick, the grandchildren are doing a great job of dealing with everything. Don't remember if I told you the boys got jobs and they started today. Probably why my phone was quiet today as they weren't talking to their dad. Chiro's can get a bad rap and you're right things have changed a lot but I'm still leery. It does sound like things are improving though.

    Shout out to everyone who stops in tonight. Feeling a little drained today so hopefully will get an early night and a restful sleep. Hoping the same for the rest of you.....PPQP

    Re: w/c 20th

    Greetings Abbers,

    Feeling a bit drained myself tonight, geez. We finally went to make a condolence call to our elderly (former) neighbors. Took lunch over to them & sat for a while & talked about how difficult it is losing your 61 year old daughter in a foreign country no less. They can't even get anyone on the phone who speaks enough English to explain exactly what happened. Even the woman's husband doesn't speak enough English so they haven't gotten much from him
    Then my daughter just told me a neighbor of hers has brain cancer, a woman in her early 50's with two kids she's raining alone. How sad is that?

    Hello to Mick, Pauly, PQ & everyone.
    I hope we all get some much needed rest tonight

    hiya ppqp..how are you?all good today any better ..less drained?yes thats what merlins are ..did your lads get home ok?my back is starting to get better ...shhhhhhhh

    hiya pauly you ok sam et al?

    right take it eazee..

    A Young Boy, About Eight...

    ...years old, was at the store picking out a large box of laundry detergent. The grocer walked over and, trying to be friendly, asked the boy if he had a lot of laundry to do.

    "Oh, no laundry", the boy said. "I'm going to wash my dog".

    "But you shouldn't use this to wash your dog. It's very powerful and if you wash your dog in this, he'll get sick. In fact, it might even kill him".

    But the boy was not stopped by this and carried the detergent to the counter and paid for it, even as the grocer still tried to talk him out of washing his dog.

    About a week later the boy was back in the store doing some shopping. The grocer asked the boy how his dog was doing.

    "Oh, he died", the boy said.

    The grocer said, "I tried to tell you not to use that detergent on your dog".

    "Well," the boy replied, "I don't think it was the detergent that killed him".

    "Oh I'm sorry. How did he die"?

    "I think it was the spin cycle".

    A salesman drove into a small town where a circus was in progress. A sign read: 'Don't Miss The Amazing Scotsman'.

    The salesman bought a ticket and sat down.

    There, on centre stage, was a table with three walnuts on it. Standing next to it was an old Scotsman.

    Suddenly the old man lifted his kilt, whipped out a huge willy and smashed all three walnuts separately with three mighty swings!

    The crowd erupted in applause as the elderly Scot was carried off on the shoulders of the crowd.

    Ten years later the salesman visited the same little town and saw a faded sign for the same circus and the same sign 'Don't Miss The Amazing Scotsman'.

    He couldn't believe the old guy was still alive much less still doing his act! He bought a ticket. Again, the centre ring was illuminated.

    This time, however, instead of walnuts, three coconuts were placed on the table.

    The Scotsman, now much older, stood before them, then suddenly lifted his kilt and shattered the coconuts with three swings of his amazing member. The crowd went wild!

    Flabbergasted, the salesman requested a meeting with him after the show.

    'You're incredible!' he told the Scotsman. 'But I have to know something. You're older now, why switch from walnuts to coconuts?'

    ''Well laddie,' said the Scot, 'Ma eyes are nae whit they used tae be.

    I watched an ant climb a blade of grass this morning. When he reached the top, his weight bent the blade down to the ground. Then, twisting his thorax with insectile precision, he grabbed hold of the next blade. In this manner, he travelled across the lawn, covering as much distance vertically as he did horizontally, which amused and delighted me.

    And then, all at once, I had what is sometimes called an "epiphany", a moment of heightened awareness in which everything becomes clear. Yes, hunched over that ant on my hands and knees, I suddenly knew what I had to do...

    Quit drinking before noon.

    A man and woman were having dinner in a fine restaurant. Their waitress, taking another order at a table a few steps away, suddenly noticed that the man was slowly sliding down his chair and under the table, but the woman acted unconcerned.

    The waitress watched as the man slid all the way down his chair and out of sight under the table. Still, the woman appeared calm and unruffled, apparently unaware that her dining companion had disappeared.


    The waitress went over to the table and said to the woman, "Pardon me, ma'am, but I think your husband just slid under the table".


    The woman calmly looked up at her and said, "No he didn't. He just walked in the door".

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...yup the lads got home ok. What a nightmare. Ex called me at work today to say he can give me some money and that our family is going to get back together. Man he's really living in his own world. Staying totally out of everything and just looking after me. Doing better, got some much needed rest last night and not feeling so drained. We had a short lived rain session was hoping for a great thunderstorm. That still my come as we're hovering around 30 degrees. Great for the garden, everything has germinated!

    Pauly...glad you got on today, it's the tinternet goblins! Yes, he is very odd. Will be interesting to see what the autopsy reveals. Are you going to be babysitting every Sunday?

    Shout out to everyone else and Det always thinking of you.....PPQP

    Re: w/c 20th

    Greetings Abbers,

    After 10 pm already, geez. These days seem to be getting longer & longer.
    We went to visit gravesites today to leave flowers 7 flags for the Memorial Day weekend. I think I've had enough of death & dying for the week.

    Mick, one of the reasons I retired when I did was the patients were no longer just old people. We were getting more & more patients closer to my own age with this deadly disease & it really started getting to me. We can't live forever but we should at least be able to raise our kids & enjoy some grandkids before we go.

    PQ, dealing with your ex must be a major headache. I'm sorry you have to deal with him Glad your boys can intervene when necessary.
    We had a dry day today but thunder storms will be arriving likely tomorrow & the weekend.

    Hello to the rets of the crew 7 wishing everyone a peaceful night.

    have you seen this for a real crappy advert its so rubbish I laughed

    The Chicago Stack | Great Tastes of America | TV Ad | McDonald's UK - YouTube


    We know Columbus believed the world was round when others believed it was flat. And, of course, we know that he landed in the Americas in 1492. What we have not known, until recently, were his first words on returning to Spain. However, scholars have recently discovered documents that throw light on the subject. According to one, Columbus' first words on stepping ashore were,

    "I'll bet I'm the first man who ever got 8,000 miles on a galleon!"

    When I was a kid I got no respect. The time I was lost on the beach and the cop helped me look for my parents I said, "Do you think we'll find them?" He said, "I don't know, kid, there's so many places they could hide."

    It was the same thing in the army, no respect. They gave me a uniform that glowed in the dark.

    I get no respect. This last week my tie was on fire. Some guy tried to put it out with an ax!

    I get no respect at all. I donated to a sperm bank. Now I'm the father of three puppies.

    I tell ya I get no respect from anyone. I bought a cemetary plot. The guy said, "There goes the neighborhood!"

    I tell ya when I fly, I don't get no respect. I took one of those cheap flights, no frills. I finished eatin' and had to do the dishes. And I tell ya I got no confidence in the pilot. When he makes a left turn he puts his hand out.

    I tell ya when I fly, I don't get no respect. I took one of those cheap flights, no frills. I finished eatin' and had to do the dishes.

    Hey , I don't get respect from anyone. Why, American Airlines, they thanked me for flying United.

    I don't get no respect. I told my psychiatrist I got suicidal tendencies. He said from now on I have to pay in advance.

    I don't get no respect. I called Suicide Prevention. They tried to talk me into it.

    I don't get no respect. I joined Gambler's Anonymous. They gave me two to one I don't make it.

    I'm tellin' ya I get no respect. When I was in Switzerland, I got an obscene yodel.

    Last Christmas I got no respect. In my stocking, I got an odor-eater.

    What a childhood I had. My parents sent me to a child psychiatrist. The kid didn't help me at all.

    I tell you, with my doctor, I don't get no respect. Well, I told him I've swallowed a bottle of sleeping pills. He told me to have a few drinks and get some rest.

    I don't get no respect at all from my dog. Well, he keeps barking at the front door. He don't want to go out. He wants me to leave.

    With my doctor, I don't get no respect. I told him I want a vasectomy. He said with a face like mine, I don't need one.

    I tell you, I can't take it no more. My dog found out we look alike, he killed himself.

    I tell ya when I was a kid, all I knew was rejection. My yo-yo, it never came back!

    When I was a kid I got no respect. I told my mother, "I'm gonna run away from home." She said, "On your mark..."

    When I was a kid I got no respect. My uncle's dying wish - he wanted me on his lap. He was in the electric chair.

    With my old man I got no respect. I asked him, "How can I get my kite in the air?" He told me to run off a cliff.

    With my old man I got no respect. When he told me I should start at the bottom. He was teaching me how to swim.

    With my old man I got no respect. When he took me hunting he gave me a three minute head start. Then on the way home he tied me to the fender and put the deer in the car.

    With my old man I got no respect. He told me never take candy from a stranger unless he offered me a ride.

    When I was a kid I got no respect. Every week my old man took me to the zoo. I found out he was trying to make a trade.

    When I was a kid I got no respect. When I went on the roller coaster, my old man told me to stand up straight.

    When I was a kid I got no respect. I asked my old man if I could go ice skating on the lake. He told me to wait till it gets warmer.

    When I was a kid I got no respect. I had no friends. I remember the see-saw. I had to keep runnin' from one end to the other.

    When I was a kid I got no respect. I played hide-and-seek. They wouldn't even look for me.
    With girls I get no respect. A belly dancer told me I turned her stomach.

    MAE ALL...

    Morning Mick...you could send some of that rain over this way, the little spurts we got didn't do anything for the garden. You're sounding chipper today, the back must be better sshh. Our holiday was last Monday, we celebrate the Queen's Birthday. LOL Got the rest of my documents yesterday and setting a meeting time to sign up the paper work, hopefully today. I think that's enough for me to concentrate on. I guessed the answer with Lav's first 7. LOL

    Sam...been thinking of you, I have had some really strange dreams these last couple of nights. Nothing to do with anything going on in my life right now for example one of the dreams last night I had my quad run over by a dump truck. What's up with that!

    Pauly...things back to normal, you're following Mick. LOL You have a good day too.

    TGIF...it's been a long week! Have a Fantastic Friday all.....PPQP
