      morning all
      jeez louise it wet out. it has been raining all night and pretty hard at times. 2 days ago some areas, fortunately not here, got 8" of rain in a few hours. needless to say, flooding, Mick, my nice clean bridge!!

      Lav, went to close up chickens last night and a damn blacksnake was curled up in there. had a heck of a time getting him out of there.

      PQ, I go back and forth with early retirement but reckon as long as I have work, I'm holding out. How is the Canadian retirement work?

      SK, how you doing? I can't go down the rabbit hole of drump. he's a constitutional calamity.

      reckon it is a good day to get some paper work done. Rain all day today as well......
      be well friends

      MAE ALL...

      Morning Mick...magpie chatter made me think of my son. Every year a bird family comes back to nest below his bedroom window. Those little chickadee's like to greet the morning sun. What a noise! Glad the peskies are safe. You should ask your farmer neighbour to invest in a donkey. They're great a keeping any predators away from horses, cattle and perhaps your bunnies. The movable raised bed is an interesting idea but there is literally no room in the garden area. The raised plots were positioned in such a way as to allow for walkers and wheelchairs.

      Sam...our Canadian Pension Plan goes into effect at the age of 65. However you can apply for early partial payments while still working, which I have done. After 65 you don't have to pay into it but the income you receive is taxable. Like they say the only 2 definite's are death and taxes. Hope you didn't get rained out wherever you were playing your tunes yesterday.

      Lav...did the grandson's get picked up yet? Time to replenish the fridge. Even though I complain a lot I really do like my job and have made many friendships with the clients. I plan on sticking around as long as possible. It's nice being able to basically do whatever I want.

      Pauly...thinking of you.

      2 more rows to plant in the charity Food Bank plot so will be heading out soon. Hope we all have a Super Sober Sunday....PPQP

      Greetings Abbers,

      That's very damp greetings - ugh. Still raining off & on, listened to thunder rumbling somewhere nearby all night long. Toadstools still popping up everywhere too, ha ha!
      Grandson were picked up just before lunch time, it was fun, it was noisy, it was busy, LOL

      Mick, keep your eye on the fox, hate those suckers. I don't know about rabbits but they sure do like chickens
      Keep taking care of that back fella.

      Sam, it rained HARD here last night. I have no idea how much but it must have been quite a bit.
      Glad the first snake has arrived at your place, the second should be there shortly. They freak me out even though I know they prefer mice to humans.

      PQ, I'm glad you have the kind of job that you can manage & not one that manages you - if you know what I mean. If that's the case then hanging in longer is a good thing.

      Wishing everyone a nice night!

      Six Favorite Could Nots

      Couldn't find his way through a maze even if the rats helped him.


      Couldn't hit sand if he fell off a camel.


      Couldn't hit the broad side of a barn if he were standing inside.


      Couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel.


      Couldn't think/pee his way out of a paper bag.


      Couldn't write dialog for a porno flick.


      CPU is always in powersave mode.


      CPU not connected to the bus.


      Cranial cavity filled with neutronic matter. (Really dense.)


      Cranio-rectally inverted.


      Cunning as a dodo bird.


      Cursor's flashing but there's no response.


      Dealing with him is less fun than going to the dentist.


      Dealing with him is one angst worse than a blind date.


      Deep as her dimples / reflection in a mirror.

      Today My Doctor asked Me

      ...what I did yesterday, I told him about my all about my day:

      "Well, yesterday afternoon, I waded across the edge of a lake, escaped from a mountain lion in the heavy brush, marched up and down a mountain, stood in a patch of poison ivy, crawled out of quicksand, and jumped away from an aggressive rattlesnake",

      Inspired by my story, the doctor said, "You must be an awesome outdoors-man"!

      "No", I replied, "I'm just a crap golfer".

      The Profound Logic of Children



      HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY?
      You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.
      Alan, age 10

      No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with.
      Kirsten, age 10


      WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED?
      Twenty-three is the best age because you have known the person FOREVER by then.
      Camille, age 10

      No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married.
      Freddie, age 6


      HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?
      You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.
      Derrick, age 8


      WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?
      Both don't want any more kids.
      Lori, age 8


      WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?
      Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.
      Lynnette, age 8

      On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.
      Martin, age 10


      WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR?
      I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns.
      Craig, age 9


      WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?
      When they're rich.
      Pam, age 7

      The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that.
      Curt, age 7

      The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do.
      Howard, age 8


      IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?
      It's better for girls to be single but not for boys.
      Boys need someone to clean up after them.
      Anita, age 9


      HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED?
      There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?
      Kelvin, age 8


      And the #1 Favorite is........"

      HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?
      Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck.
      Ricky, age 10

      A priest is driving down the road when he comes across a Baboon lying dead in the road. He contacts the police to inform them of his find.

      A cocky desk sergeant laughed and asked "Did you give it the last rites"?

      "No" said the priest "I thought I'd inform his next of kin first".

      My Wife Threatened to Leave

      ...me yesterday just because I didn't open the car door for her.

      I told her, "I just panicked and swam to the surface".

      I told my boss that three companies were after me and I needed a raise if he wanted me to stay.

      He asked which three companies they were, so I told him the gas, electric and cable.

      Morning all,
      thanks for the brew, Mick, glad you're feeling more betterish. So you're taking off Wednesday? to whence and where?

      I think the sun is going make a welcomed appearance today. I got a bit of clean up to do once the waters recede. Unfortunately, there were a few fatalities here in our area. I feel for the families......

      so I going to try something on my fiddle, moving to another finger position, I bought a mute for my wife's sanity. Reckon I'll be more annoying than usual. She is trying to learn a bit of banjo so I'm helping her with that. Thus, annoyance can be mutual!!

      hope all is well with everyone. Det, thinking of you

      MAE ALL...

      Lav...I know exactly what you mean and yes I'm very grateful for my work situation.

      Mick...I'm glad your back is feeling better but obviously you haven't learned to slow down yet. You take it easy. I'm sure Panda appreciates the ramp, sorry there's health issues again. Hope you get it sorted.

      Sam...sorry to hear about the fatalities it's been a rough stretch for a lot of people. The mute sounds like a good plan. Mutual annoyance. LOL

      Wishing everyone a great day.....PPQP

      Re: w/c 3 /6/18

      Good evening Abbers & all

      We had a real nice, sunny, rain-free day & it was cool too. Finally!
      I spent the morning shoveling the litter out of the chicken house (good stuff for the compost pile). It's all nice & clean now so I will be moving the youngsters over to the big girl section little by little this week. As usual I hope the 6 older hens aren't too nasty with the new arrivals. Yes, hen pecking is a real thing.

      Mick, I really hope your back holds up for you. Remember to be nice to it, OK?
      My son picked up the boys on Sunday. It may be some time before the DIL makes another appearance - her choice.
      I haven't seen a single fox since I started keeping the chickens locked up in their new yard. I hope the fox population dwindles to zero.

      Sam, sorry to hear of the fatalities in your area, that's sad. I heard of a few up this way too.
      I think you need a drum set added to your fiddle & banjo music - sounds nice Good luck!

      PQ, are you caught up with your planting now? Today was such a nice day to work outside. I hope we get a few more days like this.

      I think this thread will be growing a little. The Monthly thread seems to have outlived it's usefulness so SKendall & Treegirl (FKA as Cyntree) will be posting here as well I believe.

      Have a nice night everyone!

      Thanks for the introduction, Lav!

      Hello all - I have been with the Monthly thread for years and years, but I have popped over here on occasion, so I do "know" some of you.

      I work odd hours, and just finished up for today, so my brain is a little fried... I will just say hello and goodnight for now.

      Wishing all well for a happy Tuesday---

      Re: w/c 3 /6/18

      morning all,
      nice cool sunny morning here in ol Virginny, So far, no more attacks from the varmint that had been feasting on my chickens, found the fault in my electric fence and have it smoking, but as a precaution been shutting them up at night. Once it gets hot again, can't do that though. My sister is sending back some furniture she took from our parents house. BUT we are in the process of needing a little work done in there so I guess we're storing it in my old office building. Another form of tetras.

      Lav, funny you should mention drum, my son is pretty good drummer, so there you are, what is really needed is a washboard. I did get a nose whistle for Xmas but I had such a bad cold I never got around to trying it.

      Mick, you traveling yet, where you be heading this time?

      good to see you treegirl, what kind of work do you do and from whence do you hail? Years ago I used to work a graveyard shift, bout killed me. I never got any sleep.

      PQ, what is your growing season like? How is it doing a community garden? Are there lots of participants? Sorry if I've asked these questions before, I can't remember didilly these days. We planted right before all that rain, thankfully it didn't really wash away. I think my favorite is sweet taters. I like the way the grow and I enjoy digging them.

      Pauly, where you hiding, come on out. Any news from Det?

      Pi, how are things down in PI-land? your summer starting to cruise along? Any new doggies?

      well off to it friends, be well!
