    Quick hello to all -

    CONGRATS DET!!! You are definitely creating a new life, how great.

    To everyone else, I wish a happy and safe day. I must run, big work day today, and I spent all day with hubs yesterday, so of course I am behind.

    Will try to check in later. Cheers -

    ARF! Happy Tue ABeroooos!

    Pauly, say the word and we'll hit a new coffee shop together sometime... my treat.

    things are finally falling into place pretty well here all over. Interesting how that after some very concerted
    effort with my mindfulness practice I don't feel like I'm fighting things anymore. I'm learning to transcend fighting
    altogether, and that kind of 'pushing sh#t uphill' effort/fatigue cycle I've been putting myself through for so many decades.

    have Chinese porkchops in the oven currently (ok they're not actually from China I'm pretty sure)

    so glad to see everyone don't pretty well on the thread here, that makes my day so keep up the good stuff.

    did my drug test for work today and more paperwork and got a couple items of clothing. thankfully dress code is
    biz casual which is nice.

    packing up for gym/RR meeting once again and I spose i better check those chops...

    be well loves

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...yup, we've got the sunshine which makes all the difference when the weather is cold. Had to go for a consult for an upcoming colonoscopy. My doc had moved way down south so was nervous about trying to find the place. Saw a sign that said Freeway Ends so was glad to see my destination just up ahead. The Trump / Hillary Clinton joke made me laugh out loud. The accountant is at it again driving everyone crazy to the point where the childcare director said I'm not listening to anything you say anymore. I'll only listen to "PQ" lol.

    Pauly...I really wan't expecting the polar bears comment. LOL Glad you're blocking the work situation out of your mind, just tell yourself "Not my circus, not my monkey!"

    Sam...sending you motivation, don't want to mess up on the 30th. may be behind work wise but you're way ahead relationship wise.

    Det...that concerted effort was well worth it. You sound so much more at peace with yourself.

    Lav...I'm sure you'll pop up shortly.

    It's stir fried veggies and rice for dinner tonight so must get at it. Have a peaceful night everyone....PPQP

    Re: sunday the 27th

    Good evening Abbers,

    Running a bit behind today but that's OK. We took a few hours to go walk through the orchid display at Longwood Gardens today. Such beautiful flowers, honestly. YB has some orchids in the greenhouse, now he wants a bigger greenhouse, haha!
    Btw - that cheese soup picture.....YB said it was delicious, I saw a lot of people eating it with smiles on their faces, LOL. WAY too much dairy in that bowl for me!

    Mick, your trains are reminding me of the setup our old neighbor had in his basement. It's sitting there unused now, don't know what's going to happen to it, shame. You have a real talent for revitalizing old stuff, making it like new

    Sam, hope you get your birthday shopping done before this next storm blows in tomorrow. Good luck!!!

    Cyn, more snow on the way, ugh! Get ready!

    Pauly, YB knows better than to annoy me with gas issues, haha!! I've been pointing him to the door for nearly 46 years now. Go outside & do that, yuck!!

    Det, never heard of Chinese pork chops.
    I think most of us have some history of fighting ourselves over stupid shit that we can't change or control. The only smart thing to do was give up, yep, just give up. That's what I did so I could stop beating myself up
    Glad things are moving in the right direction for you.

    PQ, yep, I am here

    Hello to SK & Pie.
    Hope we all have a nice night!

    I’m not saying I’m a shit businessman, but a few years ago I paid 400K for sole distribution rights for cats eyes in Venice.

    A lot of people on here portraying us Scots as some sort of backward, alcoholic, wife beaters and junkies with an obsession for deep fried food. You don't know anything about us, so stick your compliments up yer

    Barry Morris had signed up to a dating company and he had chosen his first date.

    He worried the entire week before the date was due to take place and he wondered how he could impress the young lady he would be meeting that night.

    The night of the date arrived and Barry went to the restaurant early.

    As luck would have it, he happened to see Sean Connery coming into the same restaurant.

    As the head waiter fussed over Sean Connery, there was a moment when the big Scot was left alone and Barry seized his chance.

    "Excuse me, Mr Connery, I wonder if you could help me. I'm supposed to be meeting a woman here tonight for a blind date and I really want to impress her. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind coming over to our table at some point and strike up a conversation with me. Would you do that please?"

    Sean thought about it and, as the head waiter returned, he reached for Barry's hand to shake it, "What's your name? and Barry told him.

    About half an hour into the meal, Barry's date seemed very impressed with him. Barry's confidence soared, he was witty, intelligent and debonair.

    At this point, Sean Connery came to their table, "As I live and breath," says Sean flashing a big grin, "Barry Morris you old dog, how are you? And who is this gorgeous lady you're with?"

    "Fck off Sean," says Barry, "can't you see I'm on a date?"

    A man and his wife are spending their holidays in sunny Spain.

    Keen to get an all over tan, the bloke climbs onto the roof, strips off and sun bathes.

    After a couple of hours, he comes back into the house and climbs into bed beside his wife and they have a quickie.

    Within minutes the guy is in awful pain when he realises that his is badly sunburned.

    He rushes into the kitchen and opens the fridge to find something cooling. Quickly, he grabs a jug full of cold milk and dips in his pained manhood.

    At that point his wife enters the kitchen and seeing the milk drip from the end of his says, "I always wanted to know how you refilled that thing!"

    A guy walked up to a beautiful young woman in a bar. "Do you mind if I ask you a personal question?" he said to her.

    "I don't know," replied the beautiful young woman. "It depends on how personal it is."

    "OK," the guy said. "How many men have you slept with?"

    "I'm not going to tell you that!" the woman exclaimed. "That's my business!"

    "Sorry," said the guy, "I didn't realize you made a living out of it."

    A cowboy in Texas gets pulled over by a State Trooper for speeding.The trooper started to lecture the cowboy about his speeding and in general began to throw his weight around to try to make the cowboy feel uncomfortable.

    Finally, the trooper got around to writing out the ticket. As he was doing that, he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head.

    The cowboy sez, "Y'all havin' some problem with circle flies?"

    The trooper stopped writing the ticket and said, "well yeah, if that's what they're called. But I never heard of no circle flies."

    "Well, sir," the cowboy replies, "circle flies hang around ranches. They're called circle flies because they're almost always found circling around the back end of a horse."

    The trooper says, "Oh," and goes back to writing the ticket. But, a moment later he stops and says, "Are you callin' me a horse's ass?"

    "No, sir," the cowboy replies, "I have too much respect for law enforcement to call y'all a horse's ass."

    "That's a good thing," the trooper says and goes back to writing the ticket.

    After a long pause, the cowboy, in his best Texas drawl says, "Hard to fool them flies though."

    A guy went to a psychiatrist because he was having severe problems with his sex life.

    The psychiatrist asked him a lot of questions, but didn't seem to be getting a clear picture of the problems.

    Finally, he asked, "Do you ever watch your wife's face while you're having sex?"

    "Well, yes, I did once."

    "Well, how did she look?"

    "Oh boy, she looked VERY angry!"

    At this point the psychiatrist felt that he was really getting somewhere and he said, "Well that's very interesting, we must look into this further.

    Now tell me, you say that you have only seen your wife's face once during sex; that seems somewhat unusual. How did it occur that you saw her face that time?"

    "She was watching us through the window."

    Two Indians and an Irishman were walking through the woods.

    All of a sudden one of the Indians ran up a hill to the mouth of a small cave.

    "Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!" he called into the cave and listened closely until he heard an answering, "Wooooo! Wooooo! Woooooo!

    He then tore off his clothes and ran into the cave.

    The Irishman was puzzled and asked the remaining Indian what it was all about.

    "Was the other Indian crazy or what?"

    The Indian replied "No, It is our custom during the mating season that when Indian men see a cave, they holler 'Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!' into the opening.

    If they get an answer back, it means there's a beautiful squaw in there waiting for us."

    Just then they came upon another cave. The second Indian ran up to the cave, stopped, and hollered, "Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!"

    Immediately, there was the answer. "Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!" from deep inside.

    He also tore off his clothes and ran into the opening.

    The Irishman wandered around in the woods alone for a while, and then spied a third large cave.

    As he looked in amazement at the size of the huge opening, he was thinking,

    "Hoo, man! Look at the size of this cave! It is bigger than those the Indians found.
    There must be some really big, fine women in this cave!"

    He stood in front of the opening and hollered with all his might Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!"
    Like the others, he then heard an answering call,




    With a gleam in his eye and a smile on his face, he raced into the cave, tearing off his clothes as he ran.

    The following day, the headline of the local newspaper read.....

    Hot Diggety Ding Dong, Det! So happy to hear your new job news. Way to go, and enjoy your new clothes too!

    Temperature plummeted 30 degrees overnight, but no room for complaints, given what some areas are dealing with. Sam, did you ever beef up your heating system?

    Thought of you last night, PQ while watching a documentary on the evolution of horses, and their relationship with humans. One of the segments focused on the Blackfeet Indians in Alberta, and some unique relay racing that they do.

    In the kitchen, I've been channeling Mick, while roasting all manner of root veggies. It's way too hot here to do that most of the year, so enjoying it for now. Beets are the best!

    I got some filing done today, which is my way of sneaking up on the tax work that'll soon need attention.

    Waving to Lav, Pauly, and the rest of the gang.

    MAE all -

    Mick, the jokes are wonderful... but I forget the first ones by the time I get to the end! Still, a laugh is a great thing. Your train setup sounds grand. Glad to hear the bun buns are snuggled in.

    Lav, oh how nice that you went to Longwood ! So, a bigger greenhouse, eh? Well, if he'll grow orchids for you, sure! Are you getting snow? Not too much predicted here, 6-8", manageable.

    PQ, how is your snow, sticking around? PS, Are you a horse lover? Me too - I must check out the doc that Pi mentioned.

    Pi, are you talking about the new PBS documentary about The Horse? I saw the first episode and loved it. I've been watching videos of Natural Horsemanship, and am intrigued by human/horse relations.

    Sam, hope you stay warm in the coming deep,freeze - at least we're not in MN'

    Pauly, I love whoever said "not my circus", how perfect! I hope you can just do the work you want to do, regardless of where.

    SK, what's up? How are you feeling? Are you having this cold weather too? I hear there's snow coming to Atlanta... eeek, I hope not to you.

    Det, I was moved by your comments about the grace of your practice and the non-striving approach. What a good reminder, thx.

    Wishing all a good Hump Day evening... cheers -

    Re: sunday the 27th

    Good evening Abbers,

    Snow flurries started about 9:30 this morning, went off & on all day then the real snow turned on around 4:30 this afternoon. We're not really supposed to get that much, a few inches. I am concerned about the drastic temperature drop coming. The chickens are all tucked in with dry feet & a nice space heater
    I don't have to leave the house until tomorrow afternoon & that's OK with me. I'll be meeting the grandsons at their bus stop & imprisoning them here until 8 pm or so, haha!

    Mick, I just asked YB about our friend's trains - they are mostly American Flyer but he also has some HO & other sizes. All I know is there's a LOT of them, in a setup very much like yours.
    A bigger greenhouse will require a lot more heating & I'm not going back to work to pay for all that, haha!

    Pauly, I made mushroom soup today, dairy free (no gas) LOL
    I remember shopping in Albertsons in FL while visiting relatives down there.

    Pie, everyone (but us) has horses around here. I love watching them & stop to say hello to them when out for walks. There is a small horse farm right across my road. I love hearing them
    I'm gathering stuff for the guy who does our taxes. Our taxes got so complicated we gave up trying to do them ourselves many years ago.

    Cyn, you definitely get more snow that we do. Be careful!
    YB has to drive out to our daughter's house very early tomorrow morning to meet a contractor friend of ours. Together they are going to attack a remodeling project. I wish them both luck

    Hello to Det & SK. Hope you are both well.

    Have a nice night everyone!
