      MAE ALL...

      Pi...great to see you and thanks for starting this week's thread. If you're thinking of brunch today I'll have to pass. Frozen solid here but turn around is in sight.

      Pauly...morning to you. I'll follow the suggested leads and get coffee as well.

      Will check back later to see who's up and about....PPQP

      Morning, Pauly and PQ! Nothing frozen here, just raining, but I'm sitting outside with my laptop under new patio cover. Why didn't I get one sooner? Dogs are loving their ability to come outside for a potty break, and not get wet.

      Det, did you say, "resident funeral agent"?

      Mick, It's on my list to get an indoor hyacinth too. Their fragrance is heavenly!

      Lav, who is it that says there are two words key to a long life: Don't fall! You've got me heading to Google for, "spinach grown in hoop houses."

      SK, just opted for a mani/pedi myself. $30 bucks plus tip.

      Things in Pieland are decidedly medium, and frankly, dull. Without an engaging project, there's no spark. I ordered a beer at lunch on Friday. No spark there either. Feels like I'm just waiting to pass on. Not in a morbid, or sad way, just seems factual. Goal for today: get a start on Dad's taxes. Exciting, right?

      Pie, good to see you. I knew the price was too high!

      Mick, no wonder Uppermill sounds familiar, as a girl we lived in Upper Mossley. My aunt had a dairy farm nearby on Strawberry Lane. I used to see the buses to Dingle and Delph thinking they were exotic fairy towns, ( I was only 5 or 6) . What are they like? I'm getting nostalgic, I think I would like to revisit. No cheese and onion pies here unless you make them and I want to but my old friend pinched sciatic nerve is denying my ability to stand, We left for Canada when I was about 12 and my husband was transferred from Toronto to Dallas area in 1990.

      Hi Pauly, PPQ, etc. Will have to have a read back and get another coffee.

      NEWS BREAKING HEALTH WARNING


      If you should receive an email from the NHS Direct warning of catching swine flu from eating tinned pork.


      Ignore it.


      Its just spam

      A woman sought the advice of a sex therapist, confiding that she found it increasingly difficult to find a man who could satisfy her, and that it was very wearisome getting in and out of all these short term relationships. "Isn't there some way to judge the size of a man's equipment from the outside" she asked earnestly?

      "The only foolproof way, is by the size of his feet", counselled the therapist.

      So the woman went downtown and proceeded to cruise the streets, until she came across a young fellow standing in an unemployment line with the biggest feet she had ever laid her eyes on. She took him out to dinner, wined and dined him, and then took him back to her apartment for an evening of abandon.

      When the man woke up the next morning, the woman had already gone but, by the bedside table was a $20 bill and a note that read, "With my compliments, take this money and go out and buy a pair of shoes that fit".

      Idle Thoughts if a Retiree;s Mind

      I planted some bird seed. A bird came up. Now I don't know what to feed it.


      ....I had amnesia once -- or twice.


      ....I went to San Francisco. I found someone's heart. Now what?



      ...Protons have mass? I didn't even know they were Catholic.



      ...All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy.



      ..If the world was a logical place, men would be the ones who ride horses sidesaddle.



      ...What is a "free" gift? Aren't all gifts free?



      ...They told me I was gullible... and I believed them.



      ...Teach a child to be polite and courteous in the home and, when he grows up, he'll never be able to merge his car onto the freeway.



      ...Experience is the thing you have left when everything else is gone.



      ...One nice thing about egotists: they don't talk about other people.



      ...My weight is perfect for my height -- which varies.



      ...I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.



      ...The cost of living hasn't affected its popularity.



      ...If swimming is so good for your figure, how do you explain whales?



      ...Show me a man with both feet firmly on the ground, and I'll show you a man who can't get his pants off.



      ...Is it my imagination, or do buffalo wings taste like chicken?

      Dave was attending his 4X4 club's monthly meeting and had just told them he couldn't make the camping trip scheduled for the next day because his wife wouldn't let him go.

      After listening to the jeers and other derisive remarks from his fellow 4X4 friends Dave left to go back home to his wife.

      When Dave's friends started arriving to set up camp the next day, who should be there but Dave sitting up in front of his truck, tent up, fishing rod in hand, camp oven roast stewing away in a hot bed of coals.

      "How did ya talk your wife into letting you go Dave"?

      "I didn't have to" was Dave's reply. "When I left the meeting I went home and slumped down in my chair with a beer to drown my sorrows. Then my wife snuck up behind me and covered my eyes and said, 'Surprise'"!

      When I peeled her hands back she was standing there in a beautiful see - through negligee and she said, "Carry me into the bedroom, tie me to the bed and you can do whatever you want".

      "So here I am"!

      An Air Force Chief Master Sergeant and a General were sitting in the barbershop. They were both just getting finished with their shaves when the barbers reached for some after-shave to slap on their faces.

      The General shouted, "Hey, don't put that stuff on me! My wife will think I've been in a whorehouse"!

      The Chief turned to his barber and said, "Go ahead and put it on me. My wife doesn't know what the inside of a whorehouse smells like".

      Tom in deep thoughts is very quiet. Jerry asks, "What is wrong with you, Tom"?

      "Please don't ask".

      "I'm your best friend. You can talk to me".

      "My seven year old son made my secretary pregnant".

      "That's not possible".

      "No, he did".

      "How"?

      "He punctured my condoms"!

      Gentle Thoughts for Today

      Birds of a feather flock together and crap on your car.





      When I'm feeling down, I like to whistle. It makes the neighbor's dog run to the end of his chain and gag himself.


      The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.


      The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.


      Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are ' XL.'


      The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.


      There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt .


      Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words 'The' and 'IRS' together it spells 'Theirs.'


      The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.


      Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved..


      When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.


      Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.


      Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today, it's called golf


      Lord, Keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.

      Hi kids!

      Yep, the electrical work is done ~ for now
      The travelers return home late tomorrow night & will be shocked at the temperature change, haha! Seems they have had a great time.

      Pie, sorry you are feeling down. I understand about needing a project, something to keep you busy, creative & looking forward. How about traveling? Do you like to visit unknown territory? I love to travel myself & haven't been doing much over the last 10 years or so. I love seeing new places, new architecture, hearing different languages, sigh.
      Anyway, here's what I was talking about. Some of these Amish guys have hoop houses that are 200-300 feet long or more. They heat them with special propane stoves so they can grow veggies all winter long. Pretty cool idea
      hoop_house.jpgHello to Pauly & PQ! I hope you females had a good day!

      Mick, that coin is in remarkably good condition, wow!
      I liked the drone footage too. My neighbor has a drone & we had to threaten to shoot the thing down if he didn't stop flying it over our house. It felt creepy to me, like he was watching everything we were doing outside.

      Hello to Cyn, Det & Sam!
      Det, I guess tomorrow is a big day for you? Wishing you the best!

      OK, going to watch some stupid TV for a while.
      Have a nice night everyone!

      Family Day Holiday is made for sleeping in and sleeping in I did! Just got a text from Mick who is stuck in traffic on the motorway returning from a visit with his brother. I'm sure he'll check in when he can. Off to make a brew and wake up, will be back later....PPQP
