    MAE ALL...

    Mick...didn't realize you were putting blinds in. Which room? I just laughed when you said wow it hurt just a lot! Glad you're going to pay attention and take it easy. Don't want any injuries for the BIG HIKE. Cards are definitely in! That's why I started with Wed afternoon's, quilt free card playing. LOL

    Lav...same weather day here except by 5pm the clouds were rolling in. I think we're in for a couple of weeks of pop up thunderstorms. No we don't import all our fruit, it just depends on which province you're in. British Columbia can grow just about anything. Most of the provinces, including Alberta, can grow any of the berry types. I thought my leg would look a lot better by now so I'm not messing around and will be seeing my doctor tomorrow. Don't want to be putting anything off and the 26th just seems too far away. My sister has loads of humming birds at her place and yes I agree they are funny things. Hope the boys are good for you.

    Shout out to the rest of you. must be in the height of moving right now. Have a restful evening all....PPQP

    A young shark asked his dad, "Why do we always swim circles around people before eating them?"

    He replied, "They taste better if you scare the crap out of them first."

    After making some butterfly cakes I handed one to the wife to try.
    She said, " Tastes really nice but what's this black thing."
    I said, " Dunno? Probably a leg."

    MAE ALL....

    Mick...glad you decided against just a little walk, I don't think you do anything little. LOL We must have stolen all your heat, it's a corker over here today, rain and Tstorms starting tomorrow. Popped into the doc's to have her look at my leg and I swear it's 100% better today than it was yesterday when I made the appointment. I'm glad I went though, I usually put things off till I'm behind the 8 ball. Hope you have a great visit with your friend tomorrow. appears I beat you to the post. Must be a little busy with your company. Hope they're behaving. The infectious doc told my doc that vascular swelling could take months to settle down. Actually there was just a bit of swelling today. Her concern is that I have a good pulse in my foot which I do. Will keep an eye on things and if it gets redder or spreads I'm to come in and see anyone who's available at the time, not to wait for her. I think I'm in the home stretch now.

    Had a very enjoyable time playing cards this afternoon and then just walking out of the building. I think these planned days off is going to work out great.
    Shout out to the rest of the gang and have a great evening....PPQP

    Good evening friends,

    Yes I survived an epic 12 hr day with those two boys, haha!! I made them breakfast, we took them out for lunch & their dad showed up here with a large pizza for dinner. They eat like the animals they are, LOL We have noticed recently that the younger guy has quite a throwing arm. He can toss a youth size football like no one’s business!! I think there’s some sports activities in his future.

    PQ, better safe than sorry I always say, glad you stopped in to see the doc. Some people let things go way too long making a fix that much harder to attain. Sounds like youare doing just fine, yay!
    The weather was just perfect again today but there is a ton of rain coming this way, so they say.

    Mick, the injuries & boo boos that took only a few days to heal in the past now take much longer. Another side effect of aging, oh joy. We have to be smarter & a little more patient with things now. Glad you are taking it easy-ish!
    Politics all over the world seem to be crazy, I know it’s not just us. I think I heard Sweden is way out ahead of everyone else in the zero emissions department. I know it’s a smaller country & they’re pretty smart so maybe we should follow their lead. Who Knows??

    I just need to go put the chickens to bed & I’m not even going to try to do anything else tonight. I am officially brain dead at this point, haha!
    Hello to everyone & wishing a nice night for all!

    Re: June 9th

    Happy thursday ABerooooskies!!

    been a mighty busy dude here but all's well. My lady friend is coming over tonight which will be grand
    I'ts smoking hot here in Vegas lately...whew! heat warnings on the news and such. Interesting though it's not hitting
    me bad at all. I'm sure it's because my system is healthy and strong so I'm much more resilient than at other times having
    been here in summer. I'm just super glad I'm not a roofer by trade. poor bastards.

    Lav, you survived a marathon kid time! bravo and still in good spirits.

    Mick, happy training. er.. train day?

    got a PM from an old friend on the boards which is awesome... hoping she drops in here.

    just a quickie checkin before work... hopefully the day breezes by

    be well loves!

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...thank god the snails were saved. LOL Maybe it won't be raining tomorrow for your drive to visit your friend. Ya sure. That is a lot of rain. We're getting pop up T/Storms but this one missed me and is now on it's way east. Bummer. I am impressed with your electrical skills. That had to take some figuring out. Just think come Chrimbo you can switch them on and off to the tune of Jingle Bells.

    Det...used to get worried when you didn't post for awhile but not anymore!! I could not survive Vegas in the summer. I bet not drinking really helps with dealing with the heat.

    Lav...yes, I'm not one to be proactive when it comes to the doc. She was quite surprised to see me. She says you usually wait until things are better before coming in. I said ya but things didn't seem to be getting better. Glad I went and the leg has never felt better, of course. Good job on surviving the 12 hour babysitting.

    We all went out for birthday lunches today, I hate sushi! Still managed to order enough other items to fill me up so I think it's BLT's for dinner. Have a good evening all...PPQP

    Greetings friends!

    Sitting in a thunderstorm at the moment. I hope we get a few dry days after this, would be nice
    My oldest grandson insisted on a return visit this afternoon. It’s only the 2nd day of summer vacation & he’s already sick of his noisy little brother, LOL. I think it’s going to be a long summer for those two boys.
    I had a hankering for potatoes au gratin so I managed to put together a pretty decent dish using dairy alternatives for the cream & cheese.
    This is where the oat cream works great & it’s simple to make. That’s my big news for the day!

    Mick, that’s a lot of rain. We are now at almost 19” since the beginning of March. The farmers are moaning about it, feel bad for them.
    I think you should advertise your train/sound setup & charge an entrance fee near the holidays

    PQ, eww, sushi, yuck. I won’t touch that stuff myself. Don’t blame you for that one!! Give me an egg roll any day, haha!
    Hope the leg is still doing OK.

    Det, glad you are happy & busy!
    I’ve never been to Vegas but I have been in souther Idaho where the temps go high but without the humidity. That’s really what kicks my a$$.

    Hello to the missing crew members & wishing everyone a nice night!
