      MAE. It would appear Misty is a terrorist. In bed last night, she attacked and bit my big toe and it really hurt, so she lost the privilege of being on the bed. Then Hermi never left my side and now Misty is manic because she has been lonely.

      Mick, The Balloon Lady was my absolute favourite and the Toby Mugs went with husband. I have 3 left with my name, DD's name and Viv's name. DD asked for my Royal Doulton which I gave to her, and the sterling silver,both of which she sold to ebay. She doesn't know I know).
      The dinnerware was not her style and the forks of the silver (Spanish Lace) had pointed ends and SIL has very large hands, so I think he influenced that Decision.

      I still have some painted plates of covered bridges, which are painted in lovely colours.

      How is everyone else today? Cyn, great to see you.

      MAE ALL...

      Pauly...are you feeling better today? The most annoying thing about the painters is I didn't know they were coming. When I got to work yesterday morning they had all the handicapped stalls blocked off. Was trying to figure out the name of the company as I had 75 people coming that morning and they use those stalls. While I was outside he drove up and removed them. Asked him what his plan was and he wasn't sure. He called me before I left work and said he'd come back Tuesday night and try to finish. He asked me to make some signs and wanted permission to block off the entryway. I agreed as long as it was after 6pm. This morning found everything complete and back to normal.

      SK..."Well, the cats have played in their hotel and unfortunately it's a launching pad to the kitchen counters" Wouldn't you know it! I would have thought Hermi would be the terrorist! Didn't have to be traffic warden today!

      Cyn...sorry to hear about the torrential rain. Guess that's one way to get the spring cleaning done. Oh wait! It's not spring! Hope there's not too much damage.

      Lav...I think I'd rather put up with the cold temps than deal with torrential rain. Glad to hear you're on the mend and I too hope it doesn't return and you get the tests done. I'm in for blood work tomorrow morning (RA Checkup next week) one little vial is all. Did you manage to get the trash out safely last night?

      Det...I've tried that trick before too. Stay up late hoping to sleep in, nope, doesn't work for me either. Re: the youtube channel you suck at cooking...did you see me? Of course you know we're going to want a pic of the new Det!

      Mick...another storm! I'd be looking at a Thanksgiving holi, why wait till chrimbo! Interesting about the cholesterol going up after she quit drinking. You'd think it would be the other way around. Work was very quiet today. Childcare has everything figured out, boss is on holidays, program coord left early so I played bridge all afternoon. I figure I deserved it. Temps actually hit double digits and the sun came out. It's just teasing us as Saturday will bring snow. Will you be putting christmas lights on the trains?

      Sam...thinking of you and hope all is well.

      Doing a Souvlaki Chicken stir fry for supper so I bet get at it. Hope we all have a peaceful evening....PPQP

      Re: w/c 16th

      Greetings Abbers,

      Kind of late but wanted to say HI!
      We had a phone call at dinner time that our elderly friend is in the hospital so we decided to go see him. An hour drive to the hospital, found him sleeping, his dinner tray untouched. I woke him up, he recognized us but that's about it. He's confused, doesn't know the day, date or time or even how long he's been there. Sad to see such a nice guy going down hill like that. He's about 83, so I guess this is going to be the usual for him. I think we need to drive out & check on his wife tomorrow, she's home alone & not in great shape herself. These are the folks who lost their 63 year old daughter back in May We have been in touch with their son fairly regularly to try to make sense of what's going on with the old folks, geez.
      We had all clear skies & sun today - what??? It almost looked odd after all this rain.

      Mick, sometimes elevated cholesterol is just genetic, mine is. It was fine with me until I turned 50-ish them boom, it started going up.
      I take 2 Rx meds, one for my B/P which also was normal pre age 50 & a statin, a cholesterol lowering medication. The doctor took me off the statin when I presented with the allergy reaction. All the dietary changes, exercise, quitting smoking & drinking never lowered my cholesterol level. So now I guess it's going to go up again, ho hum.

      Pauly, I highly recommend chicken soup of any nationality, ha ha!!!
      They've done studies & are not sure why but chicken soup apparently does help cure respiratory funk

      SK, I can't believe your cat - what the heck??? I don't think I could put up with behavior like that, sorry.
      Sad about your china & silver being sold like that. I have my mother's, have used it over the years but it's pretty much packed away now. I just can't get my family to sit for nice dinners anymore - sign of the times I suppose.

      Det, you are becoming a fashionista!!! Good for you buddy, have fun!
      I have always believed that once we took back control of our lives we could make ourselves into anything we want, why not?

      Hello to Cyn, hope your yard is drying out, mine is not too bad today.

      Wishing everyone a nice night!

      The wife thought it was me coming home drunk."

      Re: w/c 16th

      MAE everyone.

      Nice train track Mick. Finding those posters w as a real find Mick. I'm sure that it will be really fun oncei t is finished.

      Lav, I don't believe in returning pets to a shelter. Mistyis a challenge, but she is a character and most importantly Viv thinks she is her cat. I will find a trainer if necessary.

      Glad for you and Cyn's yards are drying out.

      Pauly, Mick is right with his food suggestions.I also eat a spicy Thai or Chinese soup to drain the sinuses. [ wonder what Det has to say about this.


      Talked to Dr Sawbone's office and It looks as if full function could take up to a year. I asked about the pain level, because it has subsided some, but is still painful and they said that could take up to 6 months, I am trying to substitute plain tylenol when possible. I must have done a number on it.

      Det, look at your big bad self with your new duds!

      Just realized your basement is wet, what a pain. With all the flooding we've experienced in this country I wonder what the pros use?

      102 here yesterday. Humidity at 50%, ugh.

      Peggy's dog walker has begun visiting me after school. Not a problem but she is so insecure i.e. your cat doesn't like me, used to say the same about Peggy, I'm bothering you aren't I, just tell me when to leave, etc.
      Yesterday she brought me a hand-written notice inviting me to her school for choir night, which might be for parents only, but her handwriting was very immature. Viv's is precise and looped together and hers is grade school print. She always tells me how much she likes being with me, etc. She is 15, Viv is 9. I'm wondering if indeed she might be described as slow. In any event these visits have become awkward.

      MAE ALL...

      Lav...sad to hear about your elderly friend. I was wondering if that was the same couple. Does their son live close by? Sounds like they won't be able to be on their own much longer.

      Mick...the backdrop boards look great, can't wait to see them painted. I loved the train ride through the Rockies, lots of tunnels. Maybe you should have it start off in Medicine Hat. LOL

      Pauly...couldn't decide if you meant "things are insane at work" or "things are the same at work", doesn't matter as either would probably work. Hope you had a good day.

      SK...it really does sound like you did a number on it. A year out for full functionality! As it gets better you take it easy, don't want to re-injure it. Sounds like there's more going on with Peggy's dog walker. You just make sure you do what's right for you.

      Doing perogies, cabbage rolls and borscht for dinner tonight thanks to our catering staff. Final garden meeting tonight so I better get at it. Have a peaceful night all....PPQP

      Did uou say perogies PQ? YUM!!!!!!!
      Of course I have to make them dairy free these days but they are still so good
      We just heard from our friend’s son & the news is not good. There’s a tumor on the old guy’s liver, most likely cancerous. The family has decided no biopsy, no surgery, no chemo or radiation - he wouldn’t be able to handle any of that so they will be providing palliative care until he needs hospice. I think that’s the humane choice, really. Oh boy.

      I was asked to get the boys from the school bus this afternoon so I did. They did homework, gorged themselves on turkey meatballs & brownies, nothing new, lol. Waiting for a parent to pick them up. I also went back to the dentist this morning to have yet another crown glued back in. This one fell out a few days ago while I was eating a piece of toast......next thing I’ll be giving up is eating, geez.

      Mick, you train track is taking on a very realistic look
      Are you getting tons of rain with the storms? Summer is officially coming to a close tgis weekend.

      Pauly, are the allergens easing up any out your way? Do you get new ones in the fall?

      SK, I hear you with the adopted pets, I would never return one either. I have little cat experience but I can manage dogs. Crate training wotks best with them.
      The healing process takes much longer as well age. Gosh, it took me a good two years or more to be able to walk without pain & swelling in my foot after a stress fracture. Compared to your break, mine was nothing. Guard that wrist with your life, lol
      Maybe the teen has some real social deficits. It’s nice that she wants to include you in her activities, that’s kind of nice.

      Hello to Det, Cyn, Sam, Pie & everyone.
      Peace to all tonight.

      Re: w/c 16th

      Ahoy hoy ABerooonamoes!

      Lav, that's sad news but probably the best course of action.

      SK, terrorist cats? what's next? at least it's not boring there eh?

      Mick, having cholesterol numbers jump-around after recently quitting the booze is totally normal and completely expected...
      mine did the same thing. Her liver enzymes will be changing for some months, so give it some time and re-test in 3 months or so.
      In the meantime natural lecithin supplementation 2x per day is what I'd do (and I do) it helps the liver metabolize lipids and is also
      a CNS restorative. Good stuff mate. Also exercise and avoiding sugar and simple carbs will make the 'ol liver (cholesterol machine among
      other fascinating tricks) much happier.

      Well, still dunno what I want to do for work when I grow up. oh well. Pouring over the job sites, applying for a couple.

      Got chicken with lemon zest, olives, tomatoes, garlic and fennel on the stove. Smells supa!

      PPQ, my faux hawk is coming along pretty well, yes must take a pic soon.... I promise

      Lav, no giving up on eating! I'm a big fan

      SK, yes spicy food is marvy for sinuses provided you don't overdo yourself. Also spicy food helps in weight loss according
      to another newer study. And olive oil is a powerful anti-inflammatory in rather new med research news. Neato.

      PPQ, sounds like an awesome Eastern European feast you are making...nice.

      thinking about securing a domain name and starting a blogsite about life after rehab and other ramblings. Some pretty decent
      domain names are surprisingly still available.

      well, that's that for the moment. Be well loves!

Hope the garden meeting went well .

      hiya Sk ...hows you then? all good I hope ..thats so sweet and kind of that lass wanting to share with you ...ok ...she may be slow possibly...but not all of us can be brain surgeons ..a kind nature knocks all that into a hat ..I also agree about returning the animals ...unless there is a serious medical issue that means you cant keep the animal..you take good care .

      hey pauly loved dem pics!!hows you then today?so there is still a witches coven there then?you just look after you and yours

      right peeps take it eazee.....

      It said on my packet of Walker's crisps; 'not to be sold separately'
      I ignored this and sold each individual crisp for 10p.

      I covered my costs and made 20p profit.

      I was walking in the jungle the other day when I saw a Monkey with a banana in one hand and a tin opener in the other.
      I said to him "You've don't need a tin opener to peel a banana"
      He replied "I know, it's for the custard"

      A woman has the last word in any argument.

      Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument

      I'm p..sed off because I have to work at the museum tonight moving suits of armour.

      I fcking hate knight shifts.

      This older woman caught me looking at some fancy scrolled numbers tattooed on her arm,

      "Hello love, "she said, "13-07-1998, it says, the birth of my lovely son. "

      "Oh, I'm sorry, "I replied, "I thought it was your best before date. "

      I just went into my local shop & asked for a bottle of water.....
      Shop keeper said “Still water”
      I replied “Yeah, I haven’t changed my mind”

      I think I'll cook something nice for dinner tonight just to show the wife it can be done.

      Woman on dating site: 'I want a man who will make me his priority and give me his undivided attention. I want to be treated like a princess and if you are lucky enough to date me, I won't have sex for at least three months. I'm proud of my curves. Drivers only'.

      Wow, how come someone hasn't snapped you up already love?!

      The Croydon Cat killings, originally blamed on a burgeoning psychopath who would eventually turn his attention to humans, now believed to be the work of a peckish fox.

      Police are now re-examining other crimes and investigating the hypothesis that the Yorkshire Ripper murders might have been the work of a startled barn owl, the Moors Murders could be down to bored badgers and the Shipman Killings are likely the result of disgruntled magpies.

      Do people in canoes get rowed rage ?

      Every day I get cards through the door saying that theres a demand for properties in my area with Estate agents phone numbers on them.
