      Ahoy ho ABeroooodles near and far!

      what a lovely Monday being all not-hungover and such.

      Mick, I was in a rush alright... to bed those train sets you're describing are indeed amazing.

      Lav, thanks for the post on the vacuum cleaner... got it saved in my Amazon favorites as I really need one just like that.

      PPQ, indeed being healthy, in fact healthier than i've been since... I can't remember when, has helped me brave the heat nicely.
      It's certainly hot but I don't feel crappy or sick from it. And bravo on ditching the smokes! no easy feat for sure.

      Pauly, what are you doing for fun on weekends?

      had a lovely hike Sun morning at Red Rock canyon with my lady friend. Such a beautiful place... many more hikes to come at that place.
      a couple pics of the area and one of a very sweaty Det

      Treegirl is doing the house boogie I'm assuming?

      Sam, having a good week? say, i picked up a drum recently. A west African djembe.. a real one carved from a single log... really neat and sounds good.

      Ok cats n kitties. gotta get up early to hit the gym while it's nice and quiet.

      Gnight loves

      Re: june 16th

      Mae all - surprise ! I'm alive! Sorry to be away... this has been one hugely punishing schedule. But here I am, ignoring the boxes to be unpacked, sitting on our little patio, finally taking a breather and writing to you all. You have so often been on my mind, but it has been a journey of staying about a half-hour ahead of the game every day for weeks.

      House items to move were packed, loaded, delivered on Monday June, 3. I stayed in the house to do clearout and cleanup, what turned out to be much more involved and difficult than expected. Did the final cleaning on the house and made sure all was out on Friday the 7th ( I got out of the house about 10 minutes before the buyer's inspection!) took the weekend to unpack some clothes so that we could pack for our working trip to Morocco, Monday the 10th took the dog back upstate to his "home stay", Tuesday through Sunday was the Morocco trip, yesterday went back upstate to get the dog, plus some items in storage to get ready for the cross-country drive I'll start on the 25th. So the beat goes on!!

      I have on,y just read through the posts from the first June week - will catch up more soon.

      Mick - amazing hiking! I hope you are feeling good now after that long trek.

      PPQ - CONGRATS on the Quit!! Wonderful!

      Pauly, so good to read your posts - loved the vacuum story.

      Lav, speaking of vacuums, I love that one you referenced... having downsized to 928 square feet in this apartment, there is no place to store our beloved Miele... I might make the switch. I didn't know you were a camper-person... I did car camping all my childhood and I miss it!

      Det, keep on going, man you deserve every moment of happiness - a victory!

      Am I forgetting someone? Apologies if so... I am still in jet-lag, it was a brutal itinerary back home on Sunday: 2 flights, the second one 7.5 hours ( in middle seats, aaargh). I am not as resilient as I once was, and have a few GI issues to mend. But so grateful to be safely home.

      Here's my view directly across from my tiny patio :

      A nun goes into a library and asks for a book on the immaculate conception. The librarian tells her where the theology section is and says to her,

      "Are we having a little refresher then sister?"

      "No, " she answered, "I'm pregnant and I want to make sure I get my story right. "

      If you want to change the world, do it while your single.
      After you get married, you can't even change the T.V program.

      I've just bought a new mouse mat.

      That should stop the little fckers leaving footprints all over the kitchen!

      Good evening Abbers,

      Wow Det, great pics as usual
      Glad everything is going so well for you!! I really love that little vacuum - all 4 lbs of it especially!!!

      Cyn, OMG, I am not sure I would have survived all that activity you described. I am impressed
      I think that little vacuum would be great for your smaller space.
      I haven’t been camping in a long time now but we did do quite a bit when our kids were young. They get older & have weekend activities & all that so the camping had to end. Besides, the last time we took our camper out & parked it on Assateague Island we endured a horrendous storm over night, the ponies ran around like crazy brushing the side of the camper leaving horse hair attached. The worst part was the mosquitos that we swatted at continuously & left bloody marks all over the inside of the camper. UGH, no fanks!!!!
      You’ll have to tell us about that enormous rock outside of your patio!

      Mick, two days & no kids so I’m saving on food, haha!!! They will be back at some point I’m sure.
      Sounds like you got into some mischief today - lucky you

      Hi to Pauly, PQ & everyone.
      Have a nice night everyone!

      Re: june 16th

      morning all,
      been busy with work, muzac and farm,
      Det, have fun with the drum, my son plays one, they have a great bass quality.

      just saw this article, I'd hate to try and get this one in the head chute!
      Guinness World Record For Longest Horn Span Goes To Texas Longhorn From Alabama : NPR

      bought a copy of the Mueller Report and been reading it. pretty amazing how much we were/ are infiltrated. Haven't got to 2nd part dealing with obstruction, only through half of the first part. Haven't figured out why DT, Jr isn't being prosecuted. There are many pages blacked out, I can see why the democrats want the full report, I can't understand why the republicans don't.

      found a small black snake, still alive, all caught in some blueberry netting I had stored away, I don't know how long it had been there, I was able to cut the netting away from it but it was really wrapped tight, somehow the scissors didn't cut him. Took about 20 minutes. Guess I'll see it in the chicken house soon.

      hope everyone is well.

      MAE ALL....see yesterday's post is in post heaven so I'll just start again today. LOL Up early as the rain and thunder woke me up, it's really come down out there this morning.

      Det...it's so good seeing you enjoying your life.

      TG...I'm exhausted reading your post. Thanks for taking the time to check in with us, we've all been thinking of you.

      Mick...oh no, a man made flood! Yes, the TMP (Trans Mountain Pipeline) has been a sore of contention for lots of people. The Feds just announced another approval and the indigenous people announced their headed to the Supreme Court of Appeal. This has been going on for 3 years now and has devastated Alberta.

      Lav...I like the Circuit machine. That's something I know I'd have a lot of fun with. Glad to see the embroidery requests are coming in. Good luck with the Chrimbo Craft Sale, I've got an idea I'm going to ask you about.

      Sam...you're the first person I know who's actually bought a copy of that. I can't believe everything that's gone on with DT especially after being hooked on Madam Secretary. LOL

      Pauly...shout out to you this morning.

      That's all I got so far. Need coffee! Have a great (dry) day all....PPQP

      Thanks all for the welcome back!

      Mick, I laughed at "sorted-out-ish". That's it exactly.

      PPQ, hope your coffee is good this morning. The gardens sound wonderful.

      Pauly, morning shout out to you.

      Lav, OMG, that camper story reminds me of one year ( different man friend) when we had boated in to an island... turned out we were not on the prevailing winds side of the island, and there was a serious black fly hatch that happened early one morning. I mean, serious, nasty, biting black flies - thousands of them all at once. The man, being out in a boat fishing, did I not see what was happening, but I grabbed the dog and we ran back to the tent. By the time I unzipped and rezipped the tent, several hundreds had entered... I spent the next few hours with a newspaper, killing them all... uuugh the inside of the tent looked like a massacre. The little sh*ts even bit me through the eyelet holes on my sneakers! Finally the man came back and understood - we grabbed food and ran like hell to the boat and got ourselves to another island... finally the dog got to pee undisturbed! I had forgotten that story until you mentioned yours!

      Today I'm racing to get finances and all ignored parts of life caught up. Hubs flies out on Sunday, then I depart for a cross-county drive on the 26th (with the dog)... so more. Miles to go yet!

      Cheers all -

      Mae everybody,Sam those documents remind me of the ufo files we see from back in the day from time to time on TV,all blacked out practically! That should be illegal especially when dealing with such an important situation,DT just announced his run for four more feckin years last night,PQ,any room for me in Canada? Haha seen that shooting up there during the Raptors celebration parade, reminded me of the shooting we had here,lots of people in one place,having fun and some bozo shooting up the crowd,very glad he didn't hit more people, terrible,I like a (dry) day Lav and Cyn,both those camping stories sound like sheer torture so count me out on the camping too,I honestly don't think the boys would like it anyway,they're too "cityfied" haha,much love to all and wishes for a great BF Wednesday!
      I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

      I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"

      Off the table no MATTER what.

      MAE ALL...

      No spot at the bridge tables this afternoon so I am home now. Was planning on doing some work in the garden in between thunderstorms but it's only 10C and the wind is blowing like crazy. You'd think it was the start of winter! So it's indoor chores for me.

      TG...so many more miles to go!!! Soon this will all be behind you.

      Pauly...keep in mind the Raptors celebration was in Eastern Canada. There is a world of difference between them and Western Canada. Not that sh*t doesn't happen here.

      Mick...so just the basic boring Wednesday morning eh? LOL 5 more bimbles before the real mckoy? You be careful. Glad you didn't have to rip out the track.

      Off to tackle the laundry....PPQP
