    Happy unhung Monday ABerooos!

    Mick, backpack shopping sounds like a great workout.

    Pauly, sounds grand. i feel my very best when eating beef and lamb but as Lav mentioned the prices have me on the po boy diet of
    chicken and whatnot. The price of ALL real food is insane. boo!

    Had a lovely workout last night, then Refuge Recovery meet and meditation. Really getting a lot from this group and so glad I decided to
    give them a serious go.

    Pauly you have pizza poisoning... that's why you can't wake up hope you feel better hon.

    Pie, you must be relieved on the property closing...nice.

    Sam, sad thing about Vegas is not much in the way of birds. sad for a photographer.

    Lav, thanks for the note on SK. I'm just off the phone helping my dad with his confuser. Also I'm setting up a fire 8" tablet for my grandma to use for when
    she comes over. She's coming over to live with my uncle so it will be awesome to have her here full time.

    chicken curry in the works... 2 more trays of microgreens planted... all systems 'check'.

    hoping you all have a smashing evening and be well m'loves

    MAE ALL.... I'm feeling guilty that we have no snow! Thanks for taking that on! Another Alberta Clipper heading down from the north so our temps will be dropping drastically, but only for a couple of days. Chinook back again for the weekend. They are predicting some snow I'll let you know what we end up with.

    Mick...did you actually run to your appointment with the back man? I'm glad you made it home safe and sound and with groceries to boot! I have a series of tv shows that I watch when I want to not when they're scheduled. All the premieres started last week!!!

    Pauly...we are allowed to sign up, free of charge, for any program that's offered at work. So I'm taking a 4 week program called Food, Mood & Energy. First class today she explained she'd be dealing with how your gut and brain react to food. Thought of you & Det. LOL I'll let you know if I have an epiphany about what you guys have been talking about. We had fish & chips for supper tonight.

    Sam...nope, haven't noticed that phenomenon with the bird feeders myself. Interesting.

    Pi...great news about the closing. Hope the money landed where it was supposed to and that you get your share. Of course the puzzle is At the Dog Park. LOL

    Had a restless night last night so plan is early to bed and hopefully some decent sleep. Have a good night all....PPQP

    X-Post Det....sounds like you've turned things around, good for you. I'll let you know if I learn anything from my course.

    Re: w/c 13th

    Good evening Abbers,

    Grateful to have my guardian angel on duty - I took a spill in the living room, went down hard & banged the back of my head on the hardwood floor. Sh*t, all I could think of was another skull fracture like the one I had 18 years ago
    Fortunately my head is OK, so is the table & lamp I knocked over, haha! We have one of those vacuum systems where you just plug the hose into the wall (all the dirt goes down pipes into a big collection container in the basement). I had just finished vacuuming & went to reach down to pull the hose out of the wall socket & apparently stepped on the hose, which threw me off balance & I went down like a ton of bricks! The back of my head is sore but no real lump, lucky me. My foot hurts for some reason. Feel like an idiot but a lucky idiot, could have been worse. So that's it, I'm swearing off cleaning my house from now on

    Mick, sounds like you got some good exercise today.
    If I had to walk 8 miles to the nearest store & 8 miles back carrying groceries I would choose to starve. ha ha. There are no sidewalks around here either so I would probably get run over by a truck or a horse &buggy, haha

    Pauly, high fat meals make me sleepy & give me gall bladder attacks, not fun. I hope you metabolized all that pizza, LOL

    Det, that's great you have a grandma moving in, good for the both of you.
    Does she like to cook too? I found good priced fresh 6 lb. whole chickens at Costco last time we were there & found out that they cook to perfection in the Instant Pot in 36 minutes!!! That barely gives you time to make a few side dishes

    Sam, my bird feeder is as busy as ever. It also attracts all the neighborhood squirrels & racoons too unfortunately.

    PQ, it barely went above freezing today but we did have a very sunny day so we had some melting. It's only 18 degrees right now, chilly!!!
    More snow due Thursday then again Saturday & Sunday, ugh.
    Enjoy the free course, sounds interesting.

    Hello to SK, Cyn!

    Pie, did you find the money?? We all want to know!!

    Heading out to meet my friends for lunch tomorrow. Glad we picked a day without a snowstorm, geez.
    Have a nice night everyone!

    How to Dump a Man

    Dear ________,

    I regret to inform you that you have been eliminated from further contention as Mr. Right. As you are probably aware, the competition was exceedingly tough and dozens of well-qualified candidates such as yourself also failed to make the final cut. I will, however, keep your name on file should an opening become available.

    So that you may find better success in your future romantic endeavors, please allow me to offer the following reason(s) you were disqualified from the competition.

    Check those that apply...

    ___Your last name is objectionable.
    I can't imagine taking it, hyphenating it, or subjecting my children to it.

    ___Your first name is objectionable.
    It's just not something I can picture myself yelling out in a fit of passion.

    ___The fact that our dining experiences to date
    has left MY wallet a little lighter, and YOUR pants a little tighter!

    ___Your inadvertent admission that you "buy condoms by the truckload"
    indicates that you may be interested in me for something other than my personality.

    ___You failed the 20 Question Rule
    i.e., I asked you 20 questions about yourself before you asked me more than one about myself.

    ___Your constant e-mailing
    shows me you have TOO much time on your hands!

    ___Your legs are skinnier than mine.

    ___You're too short.
    Any son that we produced would inevitably be beaten up repeatedly at recess.

    ___You're too tall.
    I'm developing a chronic neck condition from trying to kiss you.

    ___I find your inability to fix my car
    extraordinarily unappealing.

    ___The fact that your apartment has been condemned
    reveals an inherent slovenliness that I fear is unbreakable.

    ___The phrase "My Mother"
    has popped up far too often in conversation.

    ___You still live with your parents.

    ___Although I still enjoy the X-Files,
    I find your wardrobe of Star Trek uniforms a little disconcerting.

    ___Your frequent references to your ex-girlfriend
    lead me to suspect that you are some sort of psychotic stalker.

    ___Your ability to belch the alphabet
    is not a trait that I am seeking in a long-term partner.

    ___Your height is out of proportion to your weight.
    If you should however, happen to gain the necessary 17 vertical inches, please resubmit your application.

    ___Somehow I doubt those condoms I found in your overnight bag were really necessary for a successful
    business trip.

    ___I am out of your league, set your sights lower next time.


    Cruella de Ville

    Ma and Pa Were Two Hillbillies Living out on a Farm Up in the Hills.
    Pa has found out that the hole under the outhouse is full. He goes into the house and tells Ma that he doesn't know what to do to empty the hole.

    Ma says, "Why don't you go ask the young'n down the road? He must be smart 'cause he's a college gradjyate."

    So Pa drives down to the neighbor's house and asks him, "Mr. College gradjyate, my outhouse hole is full, and I don't know what to do to empty it."

    The young'n tells him, "Get yourself two sticks of dynamite, one with a short fuse and one with a long fuse. Put them both under the outhouse and light them both at the same time. The first one will go off and shoot the outhouse in the air. While it's in the air the second one will then go off and spread the poop all across your farm, fertilizing your ground. The outhouse should then come back down to the same spot atop the now-empty hole."

    Pa thanks the neighbor, then drives to the hardware store and picks up two sticks of dynamite, one with a short fuse and one with a long fuse. He goes home and puts them under the outhouse. He then lights them and runs behind a tree.

    All of a sudden, Ma comes running out of the house and into the outhouse! Off goes the first stick of dynamite, shooting the outhouse into the air. BOOM! Off goes the second stick of dynamite, spreading poop all over the farm. Then, WHAM! The outhouse comes crashing back down atop the hole.

    Pa races to the outhouse, throws open the door and asks, "Ma, are you all right?"

    As she pulls up her panties she says, "Yeah, but I'm sure glad I didn't fart in the kitchen!"

    Hi everyone. Did you all see the transformation of the White House to a White Castle yesterday? No class fool.

    Lav, I'm so glad you're okay. Keep an eye on the ankle, at least nothing is broken.

    Pauly, Romeo 1, already? That dinner sounds delish. I'm wearing a hat. got in the patio got into the patio and spilled a 10 #

    Sam, I haven't seen a change at the bird feeder. Of course the squirrel got into the patio and knocked down a 10# bag of feed, that the therapist was kind enough to haul in for me.

    Mick, that's an impressive weight loss and hike.

    Gotta go.

    hidy ho ABeroooodles near and far!

    Mick, well done on the fitness goals! I'm doing well in the gym myself and enjoying feeling sore. So what's with these fitbits anyway...
    does it phone help if yer having a heart attack or something? I'm really not up on trendy stuff which is weird for a gadget guy like myself.

    Lav, yer not stupid at all but you are truly lucky... owie! apparently your bone density isn't too bad! Ok, I'm going to have to get a darned
    instant pot. My Aunt is even raving about hers and apparently you can make real homemade yogurt in them. That's tipped it for me... soon
    as I get my ass moved into a house (soon) I'm getting one. now which one..... suggestions?

    Pauly, enjoying the rare Vegas rain? it's lovely for sure. I'm taking both lithium orotate and melatonin and finding the combo to be very effective for
    sleep. Sounding yummy over there! I just made a pot of creamy squash/coconut curry soup. Perfect day for it.

    SK, so nice to see your post

    on the edge of my seat as always for a freaking job to go 'official' any day now... I can feel it....

    be well loves

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...I'm glad you're ok. My SIL has one of those wall vacuums and quite frankly I think they're more trouble than they're worth. There was a bit of sun in the morning and then a winter sky rolled in. By 5pm it was foggy and cold outside. They're calling for snow starting tomorrow.

    Mick...did the waiting game pan out? Sometimes I wish they'd just leave well enough alone, why does everything have to be upgraded!! Good job on the weight loss! more swan dives! We all have to take extra care of ourselves. sweet to make Romeo cupcakes and celebrate his day on his day. A year already, where does the time go! I couldn't face the grocery store or the thought of cooking so it was linguine and alfredo sauce for supper tonight. Seems like everyone else had the same idea, the restaurant was full of people picking up orders. didn't see the transformation of the house, I'll have to google it.

    Gotta run, dinner's getting cold. Have a great evening all....PPQP

    X-Post Det....fingers crossed the job comes through!
