    Happy Unhung Monday ABeroooskies!

    Mick, I'm sure the bunnies were relieved to have you back and pampering them. bunbun chewed up another one of my
    audio cables today. d-oh! what a little vandal that fuzzball.

    Lav, my that reaction has taken it's time to heal. Glad you're at least getting some kind of a break from the heat. Still
    smoking hot here by my standards. yepper, outside solar sales, which means literally outside walking around in the sun. ugh.
    But I'm giving it the 'ol college try here as I keep one eye on the jobs market for the heck of it.

    SK, I know the feeling... having your primary limb messed-up is the pits. We just get used to thinks subconsciously. Hang in there!

    AL is most certainly not a performance enhancing drug. And for me? well, I'm just freaking thrilled to have a clear head
    and steady hands.

    PPQ, still the zoo ring-leader i see! nothing but fun it seems. Thankfully I've managed to keep things fairly simple here
    lately and I really need that these days.

    BBBQ'd some chicken tonight with garlic, rosemary, honey and lime juice. weird perhaps but most yummy.

    been eating a TON of microgreens which is fantastic. Made a huge sunflower microgreen and whey protein smoothie
    for breakfast. Actually it was 1/2 sunflower and 1/2 pea shoots. I keep changing it up for fun! and I'm dialing-in my recipe
    for pea shoots pesto which is 'da bomb'.

    Mom is still in the hospital recovering from rather advanced diverticulitis. Calling her a few times per week to give support. Wish
    FL wasn't so darn far away. Now to help her with the booze thing is next. This hospital stay is the first time she hasn't been able
    to drink in many years and while thankfully the withdrawal wasn't bad, she'll return to her 18 beers per day habit without change.

    Well, time to do some relaxification i dare say... couple TED talks sounds like a plan to me.

    be well loves

    A police motorcycle patrolman was rushed to the hospital because he had an inflamed appendix.

    The operation was successful and the suregeon advised him that all was well; however, the patrolman kept feeling something pulling at the hairs in his crotch.

    He was alarmed and thought is may be a second surgery that the doctors hadn't told him about it. Finally he overcome his fear and decided to investigate. He pulled his hospital gown up to see the what was causing the irritation and making him feel so uncomfortable. He immediately saw the problem causing the irritation.

    Taped firmly across his pubic hair and private parts were three wide strips of adhesive tape, the kind that doesn't come off easily -- if at all.

    Written on the tape in large black letters was the sentence, 'Get well soon, from the nurse in the Jeep you pulled over last week'.

    Kinda brings tears to your eyes doesn't it?

    A new business was opening and one of the owner's friends wanted to send him flowers for the occasion. They arrived at the new business site and the owner read the card,....

    "Rest in Peace".

    The owner was angry and called the florist to complain.

    After he had told the florist of the obvious mistake and how angry he was, the florist replied, "Sir, I'm really sorry for the mistake, but rather than getting angry, you should imagine this: somewhere, there is a funeral taking place today, and they have flowers with a note saying,... 'Congratulations on your new location'!

    A man is in court. The Judges says,"on the 3rd August you are accused of killing your wife by beating her to death with a hammer, how do you plead"?

    "Guilty", said the man in the dock.

    At this point a man at the back of the court stood up and shouted "You dirty rat"! The Judge asked the man to site down and to refrain from making any noise.

    The Judge continued "..... and that also on the 17th September you are accused of killing your son by beating him to death with a hammer, how do you plead?"

    "Guilty", said the man in the dock. Again the same man at the back stood up and shouted even louder, "You dirty rotten stinking rat"!!

    At this point the Judge called the man to the bench and said, "I have already asked you to be quiet, if you continue with these outbursts, I will have to charge you with contempt of court. I can understand your feelings, but what relationship have you to this man"?

    He replied "He is my next door neighbor".

    The Judge replied, "I can understand your feelings then, but you must refrain from any comments".

    The man replied "NO, your Honor, you don't understand. Twice I have asked if I could borrow a hammer, and BOTH TIMES he said he didn't have one"!!!

    Paddy had long heard the stories of an amazing family tradition.

    It seems that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all been able to walk on water on their 18th birthday. On that special day, they'd each walked across the lake to the pub on the far side for their first legal drink.

    So when Paddy's, 18th birthday came 'round, he and his pal Mick, took a boat out to the middle of the lake, Paddy, stepped out of the boat ...and nearly drowned! Mick just barely managed to pull him to safety.

    Furious and confused, Paddy, went to see his grandmother.

    'Grandma,' he asked, "Tis me 18th birthday, so why can't I walk 'cross the lake like me father, his father, and his father before him"?

    Granny looked deeply into Paddy's, troubled brown eyes and said, "Because ye father, ye grandfather and ye great-grandfather were all born in December, when the lake is frozen, and ye were born in August, ya fookin idiot"!

    Harry met up with his close friend Chuck and told Chuck that he had just met the girl of his dreams. He asked Chuck for advise on how he should proceed!

    The wise and experienced man of the world, Chuck said, "Well, send her roses, and on the name card invite her for a home-cooked meal".

    Harry liked the idea, so he followed Chuck's advice and invited the woman.

    Next day after the dinner Chuck called Harry and asked him how did the home-cooked dinner go.

    Harry cried, "It waa a complete flop".

    Chuck asked, "Why? Didn't the girl come to your house"?

    Harry replied, "She came, but she refused to cook and left angrily"!

    Little Johnny had to take care of his baby sister while his mum and dad went shopping. To pass the time he decided to go fishing and reluctantly took his little sister along.

    "I'll never do that again", Little Johnny said to his mum, "I didn't catch a thing"!

    His mum said "Oh, next time I'm sure your little sister will be quiet and not frighten the fish away".

    Little Johnny said, "It wasn't that. She ate all the fxxxing bait".

    MAE ALL...the site seems to be back to it's normal self, well done administrators.

    Lav...didn't realize the rash had spread that much! Hope you can get it sorted soon.

    Det...glad you popped in and that you're keeping things fairly simple. Sorry to hear about your Mom, maybe this could be a turning point?

    Mick...I can get used to getting up at dark o clock, it's leaving work at dark o clock that sucks. Hopefully that'll hold off for awhile. Only 3lbs! Must have been all those hikes you went on, well done. Freedom 40! LOL Chrimbo holi talk already! You just got home. Seems to me you're doing retirement right.

    Will be checking out Kijiji later, need a new hat rack. Have a good one all....PPQP

    Hello everyone.

    Mick, you live a charmed life so I understand you wanting to stay. I, too, love the ocean. I was showing Viv the ocean life on Blue Planet, she was intrigued. That was while her mother was here and when she left Viv flipped to Annoying Orange.

    Det, I made a similar dish from Pierre Franey. friend of Jacques Pepin. I always thought Franey had an appropriate death for a chef. I think he was in his 80's and was sailing home on QE 2, after a delicious lunch followed by his favourite triple cream brie. He died peacefully in his sleep.

    Pauly, get well soon.

    Lav, I didn't realize the rash had spread so far either.

    PPQ. if I didn't mention it before, good job on being the traffic warden!

    Well, the cats have played in their hotel and unfortunately it's a launching pad to the kitchen counters. Today, they want to cuddle with me then walk over the keyboard. They cut the audio, took me to DOS and the 500% zoom remains despite me changing it every day. Their nighttime antics and crashing have knocked down framed pictures, vases, etc. Time to remove the Royal Doulton, etc. This a.m. Misty jumped on top of the couch and realized if she pawed the pictures enough they would move. I have a water feeder that puts water into their dish when it's empty and it's upended every morning.

    Last night they were both on the bed, lying down and misty was licking Herm's face, and I thought to myself, this what I hoped for, and at that moment Misty bit Herm's ear and ran away!

    It's never dull around here, but I still miss Peggy, and I think I will for some time.

    Re: w/c 16th

    Good evening all --

    Mick, welcome home!

    Torrential rain here last night and much of the day, but at this point there is some golden light, and it is a little less humid. My off-hours are consumed with a damp and moldy basement. Today I was able to save archival files and pictures, and throw tons of things away... in a way it's easier than dithering about it all.

    SK, hilarious stories of the kitties. I am sure you miss Peggy... even with my boy here, I still get tears over my girl who is gone. Lav, loved the FB post with the glorious Maxie. Pauly, sorry you are not well?! Hope you are better. Poor Lav, this rash stuff sounds serious - good luck.

    Great to hear everyone's stories, and wishing everybody well.

    Re: w/c 16th

    Good evening Abbers,

    We had the torrential rain here as well today. My rain gauge is showing nearly 6" just for the month of September so far. Crazy wet, hot weather all summer I think may be part of what is causing my skin reactions, ugh.
    The allergy doc has a few ideas & one is a possible photosensitivity problem related to a medication or supplement. I can do a lot of things but I truly cannot control the weather, duh!!

    Mick, glad your acupuncture is going well. I am a firm believer in alternative therapies & getting to the root of a pain situation. US docs are so quick to write a Rx for narcotics & now we have a huge population of addicted patients.

    PQ, your line painters thought they were going to get their work done early - oh well, ha ha!!!
    I'm happy to take any cold weather you don't want or need, for real. My redness & swelling have just about disappeared now after the Prednisone. I just hope it doesn't make a return before I get the rest of the allergy testing done. I had 6 tubes of blood drawn this morning for a big list of tests. Can't wait to see what that shows.

    Pauly, I stopped taking my Immune C because I felt it might be a problem in the allergy department. If I can I will restart it because I swear it keeps me from getting colds & other respiratory funk. Feel better soon

    SK, there are so many hysterical videos online of cats doing crazy stunts. Maybe you should set up a video camera for your kittens, LOL
    I think you will miss Peggy for a while, I know I am really missing my big girl Maxie who left us last summer. Dogs are special family members

    Cyn, great to see you! Sorry to hear you got water in the basement though, that sucks.
    We had a guy here last week to fit a new roof ring around a vent pipe but the ring we purchased was the wrong size. He did do some caulking that has kept the water out of my kitchen for the time being.

    Det, you sound like you are managing quite well, I am happy for you! One day at a time is the sane way to go

    Just remembered I need to take the trash out & it's pitch dark, oh well!!!
    Have a nice night everyone.

    AF since 03/26/09
    NF since 05/19/09
    Success comes one day at a time

    Oy Oy ABerooos!

    yawn! stayed up til midnight thinking I'd sleep in but still up before 6. Oh well, seems i've become a morning person so
    I can accept that. Mick, ditto PPQ on ONLY 3lbs after all those fun travels? well done matey.

    SK, yer sounding chipper which is lovely. Pictured the cat imagery very well
    That was indeed a classic 'chefs passing' you related. Hadn't heard of that one.

    Lav, quite a vampire day for you... 6 vials takes a few minutes and I hope you were well hydrated.

    Pauly, have someone bring you a Vietnamese 'pho' soup.... cure what ails you I say. Or a Thai 'thom yum' soup. both great.

    Treegirl, nice to have you pop in!

    ok, trying to get a bit 'hipper' and stylin' action going on in Det's trailer of high fashion got some slim-fit slacks that actually fit me
    instead of my circa 1993 baggy cargo pants. Shoe store next....

    you guys have to check out the youtube channel 'you suck at cooking' it's totally hysterical.

    well, nighty night time shortly. be well loves

    right folks best to you all...take care

    I've just bought some state of the art garden shears.

    They're the latest in cutting hedge technology.

    They say the pain during child birth is so great.

    A woman can almost imagine what a man with man flu feels like.

    Last night my date said, "So how come you haven't already been snapped up?"

    I replied, "I've been married before, but it didn't work out. She said I was far too inattentive."

    "Oh, that's so sad! Did you have any kids?"


    Fax machines are bloody dangerous.

    I got my tie caught in one once. Three minutes later I was in Hong Kong!

    Winds of up to 80mph are set to hit parts of the UK after Storm Helene swept in from the west coast overnight. Hopefully it will make its way to Brighton and blow all the Liberal party conference delegates into The English Channel and directly to France where they can stay happily ever after.

    Some people say the cup is half-full, others say the cup is half-empty.

    I just say I'm not fcking coming back to this Starbucks.

    Being totally crap with anything related to DIY, my whole family was completely shocked when I rewired the house!

    Scientists have discovered the cause of the ‘butterfly’ sensation people get in their stomach, when they meet someone they’re strongly attracted to .
    It’s due to common sense trying to get out of your body !

    The man who invented the word search has died his funeral is...

    B A T K T E N O P G

    My wife has a new hobby which involves distressing furniture.
    The other day she climbed into a wardrobe and sang some of her folk songs.

    Do you ever go into a room and forget what you went in there for?
    Well, that’s how my dad lost his job as a fireman...

    I was off work at home, after getting out of hospital, having had a circumcision to cure a nasty infection .

    I said to the wife "put the heating on it's bloody freezing"
    She said "where's your pullover?"
    I replied "it's at the hospital in the feckin bin".

    I went out and bought a pair of high heels to give to my wife with for her birthday...

    She'll like these as she's always moaning about how she can never reach the top shelf in the kitchen !
