    Happy Sunday All,

    Mick, looks like your resort is built into the side of a cliff? Just gorgeous.

    Lav, your pocket pillows are adorable! What are the dimensions? It's hard to gauge the size from a photo.

    Got my fill of conspiracy theories while out visiting Dad. It's as if he lives on an entirely different plane of existence, where nothing is as it seems, or can be taken at face value. Anything the least bit out of the ordinary is evidence of some plot. I strive at each visit to praise, or show appreciation for something he's said or done, but I'm not willing to validate any craziness. So frustrating!

    Later, gators.

    Greetings Abbers,

    Small crowd here today, huh?
    I see Sam & Byrdie, my southern neighbors are being slammed by a major snow/ice storm. I heard >500,000 people are without power, ugh.
    Just cold & cloudy here, no precipitation, thank goodness.

    Mick, that's a real sleek looking hotel, how nice
    I'm sure you two will enjoy your trip!
    Glad the rain has stopped for you, geez.

    Pi, those pocket pillows are 16"X16". Thinking about doing some larger ones in the future
    Your dad sounds kind of paranoid - dementia driven? It's pretty common & not always fun to deal with unfortunately. There's no need to validate his beliefs. I always told patients 'sorry I don't know what you're talking about' & left it at that. No point in trying to reorient someone & risk getting them angry & acting nasty.
    Any progress on your title yet??

    Hello to all the missing folks - PQ, SK, Cyn, Pauly & Det! Hope everyone is doing OK.

    Have a nice night everyone.

    Yes, it's definitely paranoia with Dad. I think when he had a younger, healthier brain, he was able to keep it in check, but it's always been part of his personality.

    I've got a Monday list of things to attend to. Thankfully, it's nowhere near as long as yours, Mick.

    PQ, Banff? As in the ski resort?

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...sun...2 days in a row...you must be doing something right! Did you get all your chores done today? These 10 days will fly by.

    Pauly...hope you had a good day.

    Pi...yes, as in the ski resort. I'm not a big skier but can get by. The thrill is staying at the Banff Springs Hotel, I love it all done up for Christmas. As long as all your Dad does is talk about things you're ok. I'd hide his credit card if I were you.

    Lav...I saw the report about the storm and power outage too. We have been really spoiled lately, above freezing, no snow and plenty of sunshine. I'm hoping we have a mild winter after last year.

    Det...sorry to hear you didn't get the job. Onward and upward.

    Sam...hope all is ok with the weather you're having.

    TG...I think I read that you were back from you travels over the weekend. Will things slow down with your clients over the holidays?

    It was a really long day at work, can hardly wait till the break, which happens to start the same day Mick heads out on Jolidays. Breakfast for supper tonight and an early bedtime. Got way too much physical activity over the weekend. Hope we all have a peaceful evening....PPQP

    my oh my, up at 4am after nodding off bout midnight. dunno what's up with that but an early crapout will be in order.

    Mick, great to hear your projects are in full swing and what a neat looking resort.

    One the other end of the scale, here's my 'trailer trash' Xmas decorations flying proudly up top of me here:
    Shared album - Xring007 - Google Photos

    I actually posted it on instagram under 'trailer trash art' LOL I just crack myself up.

    Pie, only conspiracy I'm faced with is the one preventing me from getting my sorry bum hired. good grief Charlie Brown!
    oh well... blasting forwards... walmart greeter may not be far off at this rate.

    PPQ, physical activity from something fun i hope?

    Pauly, quick cheerio right back atcha dear!

    Lav, what do you put in the pockets of pocket pillows? was thinking they might be little pillows you put in your pockets (ok i didn't think
    this through very well and I'm sleepy but the dimensions are clearly too big for that. hmmmm.

    SK, Sam, yoos all good?

    oh, I did watch an episode of Dr Who this eve for the first time in yonks. I loooved the series as a lad in the 80's living in the Aussie outback. My
    only link to scifi geekiness! anyway, picking it up at season 8 and enjoyed it quite a bit so I'll slowly catch up with the doc and friends.

    and that's a wrap for just now.

    Greetings Abbers,

    Late but saying HELLO!
    Still cold but dry here so not complaining.

    Mick, hope you got modt of your list knocked off today, ha ha!
    I take it Amy’s boyfriend is not your favorite person? I hope things are better for them this time around. If it’s meant to be.....
    No toys for Christmas this year, they’re all over that stage at this point. I am making pillows for each of them according to their current interests. Going to put gift cards in them so their parents can take them shopping. Easier for me

    Hi Pauly!

    PQ, I was wondering where you were, glad you enjoyed your weekend, sounds nice!
    The Farmers Almanac is talking about a lot of snow for us this winter, unfortunately. I hope you don’t get it too, ugh.

    Hello to Cyn & SK!

    Pie, I know psychiatrists usually put elderly, confused or agitated pstients on a low dose antipsychotic with good results. This is not to chrmically restrain them or anything but to settle down the mind chatter that often leaves them out of sorts. Maybe you coukd talk to his doc about getting a Psych eval. It wouldn’t hurt.

    Det, the pocket pillows were initially designed to hold books for young kids. Good for story time. Adults can use them to hold books, remotes, iPads, whatever!
    Liked your pic but what happened to Santa’s reindeer? LOL
    It’s been below freezing at night so I am sleeping better. Maybe you should move east.

    Have a nice night everyone!
    Lav
