    Tree, quite an adventure you've had, cool. and yes i want to know about this unusual housing setup!

    Good evening Abbers,

    Not much going on with me, just busy, busy.

    Mick, can't believe you are about to go away again - have fun

    Cyn, I can get a pillow out to you anytime. Just let me know what you want.
    Glad you are back but it sounds like you had a real adventure!

    Hey Pauly, hope your day was good!

    SK, sounds like you had an adventurous day yourself!
    Walking with two boots has to be a giant pain. I had a hard time with one a few years ago
    I hope the kitties settle down soon, they missed you. Your daughter needs to cheer up, I'll keep my fingers crossed for that.
    Glad you found an angel in the store today to give you a hand, that was nice.

    PQ, I have no mountains near me so we are subject to anything that blows in from the west, ha ha!
    I hope we have snow free holidays - just makes things easier

    Hello to Pie & Sam.

    Hey Det - great pic!!!!

    Hope everyone has a nice night!

    Lav

    I just heard my 5 year old say “Why doesn’t Theresa May just resign, with over a third of her party expressing a vote of no confidence in her leadership she is on treacherously thin ice. Can I go play now?”
    I replied “Keep reading the script you little shit, I’ve got to quote you on Facebook for likes”.

    My next door neighbour was kicking crap out of his car,

    "Stupid fcking Brexit deal, stupid fcking Brexit deal, " he kept on saying.

    "No need to damage your car mate over politics, mate, " I said.

    "This piece of sht is just like the Brexit deal, " he went on, "it's a fcking non starter. "

    I've been on an Incontinent men for Brexit, Yellow Vest march.

    You couldn't see our vests. It's just that we tuck them into our pants.

    I felt like I was on The Voice today!
    I farted on the bus and four people turned around!

    I forked out two grand for a trip on the Orient Express for me and my wife Val. I know the railways are in a state these days, but we didn't expect to travel to Venice on a replacement bus service.

    Re: 16/12

    morning all,
    couple of dry days then more rain coming in this Fursday. got the xmas thing going... annual clean up whether it needs it or not, but I think it needs it. We've become a house of mold because of all the rain we've had. Pretty funky. It's the cleaning up processes that makes you realize I got too much shit, which leads me to thinking this is the time of year where everybody gets more "things". So if anyone here wants to get me a new motorcycle, let me know, ok???

    hope everyone is well,
    Sam

    Re: 16/12

    Hello all -

    Surpringly (or not) I am on a train to nyc at the moment... HB left early this morning to drive into the city to have his car serviced and then go for an endoscopy! Since the workers are still at our house, I stayed home as long as I could to be with the boy dog... poor pup, what a revolving door for him, and it’s not over yet... quick post-Xmas trip coming up to see family. Anyway, today I will have to be brave and drive us home from the endoscopy... More nyc fun! Eeek.

    SK, thanks for that heartening story about the generous strangers - how wonderful. So sorry about the $$ issues, and the RX, and the boots — I hope that all works out. Lav, I think I will order book pillows for my grand-nieces and nephews birthdays - no more Xmas work for you! PPQ, we drove home from JFK in driving rain that turned to snow... now it looks more like Xmas. Sam, good luck w/the mold — been there! Det, crossing fingers for a good interview. Pi, enjoy the greyhounds. Pauly,ha, I love thinking of you posting with your beautiful hair dipping wet! Mick, hope you feel better today. Hello to anyone that I missed... wishing all a great day.

    Re: 16/12

    MAE ALL...

    Det...I guess one way to not sit around and ache is to tile the kitchen. LOL Great picture! Are you adding to your etsy store? How did the job interview go?

    Lav...we're not supposed to get snow till after Christmas, hope the forecasters are right. Can we put in special requests for the pillows? With 2-1 year olds and 1-6 month old I'd like something with their names and birth dates.

    Mick...I can't believe you're getting another storm. Glad you're starting to feel better, I on the other hand woke up to a return of sore/watery eyes, headache, sneezing and coughing. Also managed to have an ache body. It almost feels like my arthritis is acting up which isn't surprising as my immune system is probably pretty low. I can deal with the cold it the lack of energy/appetite that's getting to me. Carriages to add to the trains! Looking forward to seeing everything in action soon. Weather is still above normal with no snow, it's making this pre-Christmas running around so much easier. Is it Thursday you head out?

    Sam...glad you check in and that all's ok. My 2 week break at Christmas will see me sorting and cleaning, I too can see mold is places I need to deal with. Motorcycle is in the mail.

    TG...no surprise here. LOL Hope HB's endoscopy goes fine, I've had one of those and won't relate what they found. You are a brave woman, what is the major road you drive from NYC to home? I'd like to check it out on google satellite maps and see what you have to deal with. Driving rain can be really scary to drive in. Was it easier with the snow or did it turn into a blizzard? Do you have far to go for the post-Xmas trip?

    Pauly...are you almost ready for Christmas? It's great to have little ones around, to me Christmas is for kids!

    Time to heat up yet some more chicken noodle soup. Have a refreshing sleep everyone...PPQP

    Sup in the hood ABerooooos!

    Mick, glad you're healing up pardner. got to be well for adventures to come that's for sure. And you are first to call if a band of train-robbers attacks.
    (remember the old westerns) ? good stuff.

    Sam, your turn for mold.. oh joy. sorry, fresh out of motorcycles here.

    Tree, good thing HB has you on his team with all that craziness

    interview went super well happy to report! not counting eggs until they are an omelette though.

    got a new saddle on my mountainbike so I'd say tomorrow is good for a test flight.

    in very good news I got my first photoprinted throw pillow sample and it's just adorable:

    Shared album - Xring007 - Google Photos

    so next I need to add it to my Etsy store and do more of them. I took the photo near Washoe Lake state park last year.

    off to tidy up a bit

    be well loves

    Greetings Abbers,

    Mick, I am pretty sure hell will freeze over before you see me flying a B777, ha ha!!! That is one humongous plane, wow!
    I will have to depend on your pictures to see some of these places

    Det, love the pillow
    I just ordered canvas prints of Bun bun & wild horses & one of my Swiss mountain dog. I want to hang them together, should be cute.
    Glad your interview went well & hope you continue to pursue your photography skills.

    Sam, I think we very well may reach 60" of rain before the end of the year, geez. Sorry you have mold issues, that sucks. But it's a good excuse to start thinning out your collection of 'stuff'. My husband rode a big ass Harley back in the late 70's for the police department. He enjoyed it but it caused him some back problems. No motorcycles here anymore.

    Cyn, I hope everything went OK for your husband. I imagine you drive on I 95 quite a bit? I just can't handle that road anymore, I'm chicken.
    I'll be happy to do pillows anytime for you for birthdays or whatever. All you need to do is give me an idea of what the recipient is interested in - sports, hobbies, music, animals, etc. & I'll come up with some ideas

    PQ, we are now being warned of heavy rain Thursday night into Friday - 1-3" & we're right in the flood zone for that system - isn't that swell???
    This has been one crazy weather year, that's for sure.
    I'll be happy to send you some pillow ideas on Messenger too. I either have or can find designs for just about everyone.

    SK, hope you had a better day today!

    Pauly, what's up with you?

    Hello to Pie!

    Well, I wake up a year older tomorrow, moan & groan, ha ha! But I guess it's better than the alternative.
    I made a chicken pot pie today & took it to our old friend. We sat & talked while it baked in her oven. I feel bad for her, married for 66 years & now suddenly all alone. Her daughter died back in May & now her son is the only one left. He lives the same 45 minute distance away (in a different direction) that we do. I hope the son can talk her into moving into assisted care somewhere. At least she would have someone to talk to every day. Isolation at the age of 86 is not a good thing.

    Have a nice night everyone.

    Hi all.

    PPQ, try tumeric for the artritis, I have certainly experienced an improvement.

    Det, they are beautiful.

    This is part of a looong post which I can't seem to restore. Will try to recover.
