      Re: June 23rd

      Greetings everyone from the land of hot & humid
      I am not a summer child, never have been, oh well.
      My daughter said she’s received no calls from the GS camp so she’s assuming everything is going OK so far, haha!

      Mick, sorry Jeeves is unwell but you’re really in tune with what’s going on with him. There’s a lot of power in observation. It enables yuo to jump right in & set things straight, good for you! Take it easy on your old self

      Det, sounds like you had an awesome weekend!
      I am crafting anything & everything getting ready for a craft fair on July 20th. Keeps me out of trouble & inside the house where it’s much cooler.

      Cyn, sorry to hear you are sick, geez. I hope you get some relief before you start your long drive.
      Before this week is out I will have all the chickens living in the same quarters & sharing the same play yard (I hope)!! I’ve been getting the young ones used to being outside more & switching them over to the (adult) layer feed. I just hope everyone is nice, LOL

      Pauly, I love having the boys over once in a while but they can be tough. It seems to be getting worse & I’m not getting any younger, haha! If & when they come over this week I hope they arrive a lot more peaceful than they did last time. I really don’t like being stuck in the referee position, if you know what i mean.

      PQ, no rain here either but we are in position for pop up storms anytime this week. I hope the rest of your week is good & you get to play cards lots & lots

      Not much else going on here so I’ll wish everyone a nice night!

      Re: June 23rd

      mae all from a rainy yoo kay..its raining but its really warm too..and a high pollen count again..They kept Jeeves in ,and will ring me this morning .Pauly hit it on the head with he has a dodgy belly ,but for us when something doesnt agree we fart belch and burp in one way or another (whether its a rip roarer or a silent but violent blame the dog one!) to get rid of the gas build up..rabbits cant do that so what seems like a simple thing for us is a killer for them.and him having a gyppy tummy even more so.
      As for the meds ,it is harder to get meds for animals then humans.The vet will charge me per dosage for the meds as opposed to its bottle price ..kind of like buying Scotch in a pub..you pay per tot of Scotch as opposed to bottle price ..bad analogy I know ...when Panda was on meds it cost me from the vet£58 for a large bottle of metacam...but I got the same one online from a supplier for £21...but I needed a prescription from the vet £11.50 for a 3 months..had to send a photo of her ,send her adoption papers and her chip number and fill a questionairre out..and that was every 3 months.
      hiya ppqp...a chair vacant at the bridge table....not for long I bet ...whats the rennyvations you are getting done?
      hiya Det...you good mate ? it sounds like it ...Groping mode ?ha ha ..make hay while the sun shines friend ...a good few years afore it turns into groaning mode! only kiddin ..its what you make it.Havent treid local honey ..Ive heard that before too ..but there isnt any local honey producers round here but will defo keep eyes open ...have a good one .
      hiya Pauly ..you well girl?...a4 hour drive isnt far?that for me is about on real roads about 250 miles ...though I have doe a lot less on crappy traffic jam roads ..I remember once in Canada asking directions and got the reply its just down the road .....like 26miles down the road!!!!
      hiya tee gee hope you are feeling better today?Clothing boxes ? I used to have going out ,jotting around and working clothes ...they kind of meld into 1 nowadays ..its what works best or what Im in at the time!Yes my next hike proper is the Brecon Beacons ,thats what the training is for ...but along the way I have picked up the taste for the great outdoors again..I trained for last years too ,so its just about decreasing those gaps.Even retired sometimes I struggle for time!So after the Brecons ,Im doing the Samara gorge in Crete,then when I come home will be doing a few shorter oneswith Julie more regular ,traing then becomes fun if that makes sense.,and doing longer ones every now and again with my friend
      Originally the idea was to do the Brecons as training for one later in the year ..the intention was to do the desert trek...thats 5 days crossing the Sahara desert ..but tbh ,the funding you need is crazy ,considering it would be for charity ,plus if Im truthful I dont think Im fit enough atm.So that for me is knocked on the head
      Dont know what next years one is going to be ..but we have chucked a few ideas around..the main thing we have decided is instead of helping a charity ,we are aiming to help an individual..for numerous reasons..political financial and emotional. We have and still are toying with the idea of a para drop and hike sort of thing ..something that stretches us a bit..I think there will possibly be 8 of us ..I know not ...so if anyone has any ideas do tell.
      Hiya Lav,hows you then? good I hope ?Im sure you can still handle the referreeing ,tho I agree ...why should you ..Next doors garden has been virtually stripped now ..30ft x 30 of soil ..all the plants etc gorn...but thats for the kids to play on when the artifical grass is laid ..the front little bit will be their "show"garden.

      right folks orf I go ..await the call from the vets ..
      af since the fourth of July 2012...howzat then America..now proudly marching into year 5..done that one..now bimbling into year 6..tick ..done that one too..as he casually strolls into numero 7


      CHILDHOOD IS LIKE BEING DRUNK.EVERYONE REMEMBERS WHAT YOU DID,EXCEPT YOU.

      MAe all -

      Mick, wow, you are rocking the hiking! It all sounds fabulous, particularly the connection with nature... we have to work at that in this modern world, right? Personally, I'm glad that you skipped the Sahara... sounds a bit dicey for a few reasons... Breton is more my dream than the desert! Hope all turns out to be well for Jeeves.

      Lav, so sorry that you have to be playing the referee. How is the younger one doing? Things a little better? Good luck on your crafting - sounds like you are making great progress, working so far ahead.

      Pauly, I missed that you took a trip - glad that all went well and you are safe home.

      Det, keep enjoying those movies!

      PPQ, we are having thunderstorms here this morning... I love the sound of the thunder. I took the dog out around 5:30, and we walked right into a group of 3 fawns grazing... we were all surprised! I've been observing these 3 since we arrived, and they are quite tame; they go a little ways away and lie down and stare at us... amazing. I need someone to teach me to play cards... I put a deck of cards into my travel pack, in case my friend who is driving with me (part way) knows some games... we'll see. My grandmother used to play solitaire by the hour...

      Hello to Sam and all else.

      I was in a bit of a black mood this morning, feeling unwell. So I looked up a healing meditation by the "Honest Guys" (Lav and Pauly, you will remember how much I like their work), and after doing that I really do feel better and hopeful. So I am sending all a lot of white light and hopefulness today. Cheers...

      Mae everybody,Cyn I didn't take a trip Det is going this weekend to my favorite spot Newport Beach I want to go again this summer but hubs wants to go to Malibu,I don't but we'll figure it out,glad yo feel somewhat better, sometimes a cold gives me the blues too,think it's inflammation or something makes my brain sad I guess,Mick,yuck no Sahara, sounds awful,I think doing a walk for something where you know where the money is truly going is spot on,I don't trust charities sometimes,the one they set up here for the victims of that shooting a couple of years back only doled out a portion of the money to the victims and I think ALL the money should be given to the victims if that's what people intended to give to,can't believe that it's harder to get animal meds than people meds,hope Jeeves is better Lav,I'm a referee,maid, athletic runner,chef,etc when the boys are over haha but those boys make me happy so it evens out,Romeo likes to fake sneeze now it sounds so cute PQ,glad you got to play yesterday,ugh grogsville this morning,more coffee needed much love and wishes for a great BF Tuesday

      Re: June 23rd

      Good evening Abberhaves,

      Hot again today just as predicted. Can't wait for Fall, LOL
      We decided to go visit our elderly friend & former neighbor after dinner. She's moving into an assisted living facility this week. It's sad on the one hand but a very good idea on the other. She needs assistance with a lot of things, her walking is not that great these days either. She's so concerned about having to leave all of her things behind. You just can't take much when you are moving into a small living space. Her short term memory sucks but she does have good memories from the old days with her family at least. Getting old sucks.
      Oh & we drove down to Aberdeen, MD this morning to get a load of fresh compost ~ very exciting, haha!!

      Mick, I hope the news about Jeeves was good. We do a lot to care for our animal friends, don't we?
      I can't imagine laying artificial turf for the kids to play on - that's just weird to me & I think it would cause some extra injuries to the kids.

      Cyn, my younger grandson SEEMS to have turned a corner with his behavior but that's primarily because he's been more consistent with taking his medication. He fell a bit behind in his schoolwork because of his behavior problems so he will be going to a 4 week summer school program to get him up to grade level. That starts next month. Keeping my fingers crossed for that kid.
      I often listen to the Honest Guys meditations, they are great!
      I'm pretty sure you can Google how to play card games, LOL. That's a good idea for your trip! How you are feeling much better.

      Pauly, my mom used to call herself 'chief cook & bottle washer' back in the day, haha. Now I know what she meant!
      I hope the rest of your day was good.

      Hello PQ, what's up?
      Det, how about you?

      Have a nice night everyone.

      Re: June 23rd

      Mae all - am I first in this morning? Well, I have a big day ahead, so will just say hello now and wish all well... still really struggling with this bug; I got some goldenseal yesterday, in case it is a bacterial infection... it's taking time to clear out, that's for sure. Packing, mailing, cleaning, (the car too!) and tying up all loose ends to be gone from here until September... sheesh what a weird life we live! At least this time I can have my dear dog with me... he is a grounding force.

      Lav, sorry I missed the compost run - that would have been fun! Hope grandson does well --

      Pauly, that is too funny about the fake sneeze - must be very cute.

      Cheers to all, hope things are OK all over our little corner of the AF world...

      hiya all..bit late today ,been at Julies dads helping out ,then medicating the rabbit ..he hates meds with a passion ,but I think we may have turned the corner with him...I managed to feed him some rocket and some dandelion leaves earlier ,Ive just got to give him his 3rd lot of meds in a minuteThey can actually get this thru stress ,and it never crossed my mind ,but the other day the magpies went into the hitch looking for food and he was in there ..perhaps that stressed him..they wont be doing that again.
      Good news on grandsons behaviour Lav ,hope you feel better teegee ,and a big hello to everyone else ..off to playthe rabbit doctor now !!

      MAE ALL...could have sworn I posted yesterday! Must be up there floating around with some of Mick's posts. LOL

      Mick...Sounds like you got Jeeves home this morning. Magpies in the hutch, stressed out probably isn't the half of it. That does make sense and yes keep them out. He'll be back to his old self soon with Dr. Mick on the job. Hope things are going ok with Julies Dad. Is it time for him to relocate and get some living assistance?

      TG...sorry you're still struggling with that bug. Just what you need with everything else going on. Glad you've got some company for the driving, even if it is only part way. I have 7 siblings and playing cards was the cheapest entertainment my mom could come up with. LOL

      Lav...nice you were able to see your former neighbour and I'm glad she's moving into assisted care. Trying to think how long it's been since her husband passed, a year? Glad the Grandson SEEMS to be doing better. It's probably a good thing that he's in summer school, at least he'll be on a schedule for 4 weeks. It was the ladies bridge windup lunch today and our chef outdid himself. I'm still stuffed! Then I enjoyed an afternoon of cards.

      Time to find some looser pants to put on and relax. Have a restful evening all...PPQP

      Re: June 23rd

      Good evening Abbers,

      Didn’t know I was getting gthe boys until mid-afternoon but they arrived just before dinner with a large pizza, haha! They ate their way thru most of that & now they are working on my food supply. The older one punched the younger one in the nose so I got to administer first aid & clean up the bloody drips all over my living room & kitchen. One minute they were peaceful & the next minute they were drawing blood, geez.
      The heatwave continues here, yuck. I go out for a few minutes but don’t feel like doing much in the gardens.

      Cyn, I sure hope you feel better soon
      Road warriors, such as yourself need to be healthy & hearty!!!
      You would love that compost we buy. A Vet started up the business looking to improve the environment. He goes around & collects all the grocery store rejects (veggies) & also collects coffee grounds from one of the coffee places (Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts). He employs a few other Vets.

      Mick, good that Jeeves is getting better. Stress causes me stomach issues too - just sayin
      I think we are going to the annual BarnYard Boys barn sale this weekend - neat stuff there.

      PQ, my neighbor is losing her marbles rather quickly these past few months. Her daughter died a year ago in May & her husband died Thanksgiving day. Too much too soon for anyone really!
      Cards & free food - you must be a happy camper, LOL

      Hello to Det, Pauly & everyone.
      I need to prevent another bloody nose here. Have a nice night!
