      MAE ALL...

      Kicking off this weeks thread, so coffee all around. Well I did kick it off and then deleted it when I saw Mick's post. Wouldn't that be great, day didn't start off good so I'll just delete it and start again. LOL

      Mick...I tried contacts for awhile but didn't like them. Now I only use my glasses for driving to comply with my license restriction and other than that I don't need them. With my favorite pastime being reading I'm good to go. Hope the bunnies have settled back in and that your weather is good today.

      Heading over to relocate the server and get my office in order for tomorrow. Going to be a hot one today with no rain so will check out the condition of the garden.

      Back at ya later....PPQP

      Greetings Abbers,

      Well it did hit 100 degrees this afternoon. With the supremely high humidity the feel like temp was 110-115. Crap
      We’ve been promised 2-3” of rain tomorrow & slightly cooler temps, I sure hope so!!!!!

      Mick, my daughter wears toric lenses for astigmatism. Her’s need to be ordered special too. She refuses to wear glasses anymore, her peripheral vision suffers with glasses. That poor kid has been half blind since 2nd grade, LOL. Hope you get yours soon. I can’t wear contacqts, they felt very annoying to me. YB wears them too, most of the time.

      Took me most of the day to catch up to myself. The last few days were overly busy & the heat has been bugging me.
      Hello to everyone else & wishing a nice night for all.

      anyway ..
      hiya Lav yep saw the 100 degrees on the weather thingy ..did you get the rain?thatsright..I recall now its toric lenses they have to order and I cant get them daily ..its the monthly ones..I have got to agree with your daughter..when II wear glasses it feels like Im looking out of a window ..and I I get bugged that I cant see to the sides ..The only thing is the optician said that ,yes ifyou look far you have toignore the reading part etc and vice versa ..in her words ,its like looking thru a ne curtain ..like i do that as a regular thing .hope I can get used to them.


      hiya ppqp ..how are you ? yep the rabbits have settled down ..he takes longer than her..she finds food and is happy !!yes the weather is hot ..Im in the process of redoing my hanging baskets where some of them have died back

      hiya everyone else ..you all ok?

      There's a type of mustard gas that stays near the ground and only kills people less than 4 feet tall.

      It's used in chemical dwarfare.

      I bought some Jelly Babies in Aldi.

      I’m a bit disappointed they’re not called Aldi Young Dudes.

      Just saw an advert on tv for toothpaste with the selling point..

      "as recommended by Dentists".

      Yes as recommended by Dentists to ensure their patients need endless profitable treatment .

      “Let’s twist again like we did last summer.”
      Fck me, this is going to be the longest game of pontoon in history.

      I asked my partner to rate my listening skills.

      She said 'you're an 8 on a scale of 10'

      I don't know why she told me to urinate on a skeleton.

      The Psychiatrist told me "You are emotionally retarded with a well below average IQ...

      ...so I'm prescribing Love Island".

      I think I upset the people at the Chinese takeaway when I mocked the accuracy of their fortune cookies.

      Greetings Abbers,

      Mick, Aldi Young Dudes, LOL
      We had a half hour of epic lightning last night. We actually stepped out on the deck to watch the show but got no rain.
      A big thunderstorm just rolled thru about an hour ago so we finally got the rain, maybe a half inch. There may be more coming later, who knows? Current temp is 71 degrees, nice
      The eye doctor put my daughter in contact lenses when she was only in 3rd or 4th grade. I thought he was crazy to do that but he convinced me that she would take care of them herself & it would stop/slow down the progression of her eye problems - he was right!!!

      Hello to the rest of the usual crew, hope everyone is A-OK

      Going to run out between storms & get the birds ready for bed, lol
      Have a nice night!

      MAE ALL...

      Mick...it's hot here today as well. Not close to 100 but 86F is hot enough. Oh oh, the rethink is on again. LOL Was going to take a couple of garden pics, we got clobbered by the hail, but didn't even have time to turn around today. First full day of the new system and there's always a few tweaks to be had.

      Lav...looks like we're going to be under the heat dome this week with no rain in sight. Reminds me of last summer only BC isn't burning so no smoke. Fingers crossed. I've been leaving my laptop on so I don't have to fight with it and without thinking when I got home I opened the top and promptly hit the power button. Rats! Only took 5 attempts to get going. Hope your weather stays somewhat cooler this week for you.

      In early tomorrow, have some more tweaks to make. Hopefully I'll be able to get back to my stack of work soon. Have a good night...PPQP

      Hidy Ho ABerooooooos!!

      oh my, lightning storms, hail, craft fairs.... it's the 'end times' for sure!

      been a busy but healthy bee here, zipping around selling on Ebay, researching Ecommerce, looking for rental and
      even playing in the pool on Sunday. Went to an indoor trampoline place which is super cool but I was scared to bounce
      around as there were so many little tiny toddlers bouncing I'm sure I would have injured one or a dozen of them, so i relegated
      myself to photo duty and had fun anyway.

      yepper, blazing hot all over the place. cooling soon i heard? that would be stellar.

      Mick, so glad the eye prescription is treatable...that's the key.

      Lav, so jealous of the electrical storm... still waiting for one when I'm off work and can take pics.

      PPQ, laptop needs to be reformatted? or HD is about to crap out?

      speaking of crap out... I'm just plain tired after this crazy work day. Wishing you all garlic-flavored dreams
      and of course, be well loves.

      Quotes and Humour from Groucho Marx

      I would never belong to a club that would have me as a member.

      Those are my principles. If you don't like them, I have others.

      Women should be obscene and not heard.

      I never forget a face, but in your case, I'll be glad to make an exception.

      I've had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn't it.

      Don't look now, but there's one too many in this room and I think it's you.

      He may look like an idiot and talk like an idiot, but don't let that fool you. He really is an idiot.

      Room service? Send up a larger room.

      I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

      Now there's a man with an open mind遥ou can feel the breeze from here.

      I didn't like the play, but then I saw it under adverse conditions葉he curtain was up.

      The husband who wants a happy marriage should learn to keep his mouth shut and his chequebook open.

      Although it is generally known, I think it's about time to announce that I was born at a very early age.

      Look, if you don't like my parties, you can leave in a huff. If that's too soon, leave in a minute and a huff. If you can't find that, you can leave in a taxi.

      Last night I shot an elephant in my pyjamas and how he got in my pyjamas I'll never know.

      How do you feel about women's rights? I like either side of them.

      Politics doesn't make strange bedfellows, marriage does.

      From the moment I picked your book up until I put it down I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.

      I could dance with you till the cows come home, on second thought I'll dance with the cows till you come home.

      Military intelligence is a contradiction in terms.

      Marriage is the chief cause of divorce. (Groucho should know, he was married three times)

      Paying alimony is like feeding hay to a dead horse.

      "Age is not a particularly interesting subject. Anyone can get old. All you have to do is live long enough."

      In a recent news broadcast, it was announced that Lorena Bobbitt's sister Louella, was arrested for an alleged attempt to perform the same act on her husband as her famous sister had done several years ago.

      Sources reveal the sister was not as accurate as Lorena. She allegedly missed the target and stabbed her husband in the upper thigh, causing severe muscle and tendon damage. The husband is reported to be in serious, but stable condition, and Louella has been charged with....

      A Queensland farmer got in his ute and drove to a neighbouring farm and knocked at the farmhouse door. A young boy, about nine, opened the door.

      "Is your Dad home"? the farmer asked.

      "Sorry mate, he isn't" the boy replied. "He went into town."

      "Well," said the farmer, "Is your mum here"?

      "No, sir, she's not here either. She went into town with Dad."

      "How about your brother, Greg? Is he here"?

      "He went with Mum and Dad.."

      The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other and mumbling to himself.

      "Is there anything I can do for ya"? the boy asked politely. "I know where all the tools are if you want to borrow one. Or maybe, I could take a message for Dad."

      "Well," said the farmer uncomfortably, "I really wanted to talk to your Dad. It's about your brother Greg getting my daughter pregnant."

      The boy considered for a moment.

      "You'd have to talk to Dad about that," he finally conceded. "If it helps you any, I know that Dad charges $200 for the bull and $150 for the pig, but I really don't know how much he gets for Greg."

      Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica - where do they go?


      Wonder no more!


      It is a known fact that the penguin is a ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life.


      The penguin is committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintain a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life.


      If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into and buried.


      The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:


      "Freeze a jolly good fellow".
      "Freeze a jolly good fellow".
      "Freeze a jolly good fellow".


      Then they all kick him in the ice hole.

      Two old guys were sitting in the park, talking, when the subject turned to getting older.

      The first guy said, "Women have all the luck when it comes to getting older."

      "What do you mean?" asked the second guy.

      "Well," replied the first. "I can barely remember the last time I was able to get it up in bed, but my wife - she's healthier than ever!"

      "Healthier? How is that?" his buddy wondered.

      "Years ago, when we were younger, almost every night before bed she'd get these terrible headaches." He answered.

      "Now that we're older, she hasn't had a headache in years."

      Re: Week commencing 21st of July

      Evening greetings Abbers,

      Much cooler today, kinda damp but that's OK. Just got a severe weather warning for tonight ~ whatever, haha!
      I got a text from an old work friend late this morning & an hour later we were sitting in Applebees having a nice lunch Can’t complain about being retired!!

      PQ, last night’s storms were big. No problems here but our neighboring county where we used to live got hit very hard. You just don’t know what you’re going to get. I just turned on my ancient XP (the only computer that can run my embroidery software), thought I’d get some names digitized tonight

      Det, get yourself on Facebook or Instagram & look up Walter Dorsett Photography. He’s a young guy who lives near us in MD & takes AWESOME pics & videos of lightning in and around the Chesapeake Bay area. He is really good, you would love his lightning pics.
      Glad you are staying busy & having fun

      Where is our girl Pauly?

      Mick, I watched that BBC video this morning & thought OMG, Boris is just like Trump. Both dumb looking & stupid as hell. Sorry you have to deal with a clown too.
      Now I can’t get MISDEWIENER out of my head, LOL

      Hello to everyone else & wishing everyone a nice night!

      MAE ALL...

      Det...glad to see that you are still embarrassing life. Looks like you've got all your priorities in the right place. Good choice in staying off the trampolines. I loved jumping on them as a kid but now see all the downside to them. Growing up sucks. LOL Laptop actually needs all the hardware upgraded to the 21st century and with the cost of a new one it's not worth it. My IT guy that's been helping with the new server install said he'd custom build me one for about 1/2 the cost of a store bought one.

      Mick...got to admit I've been watching US politics specifically to see what carrot top does next. Now I'm going to become quite aware of your politics. Let the games begin. LOL Yup, as predicted we hit 30C today so decided it was a perfect day to go for a pedicure and lunch with a girlfriend. The perks of having the boss on holidays. LOL Does your friend have all the bells and whistles on his setup like you do? Has he got those lights coming on and off? The great thing about your hobby is that you can always change it up.

      Lav...yup the perks of retirement. Wasn't that nice that it worked out for you to get together over lunch. Lots of severe weather all around me but so far we've been lucky. Cooler temps coming in overnight and a manageable high of 68F tomorrow with showers. Perfect timing as I plan on playing cards tomorrow afternoon. WOW, an XP. Positive vibes that your system remains stable. At least until after your latest order. LOL

      Shout out to Pauly, Sam, TG and anyone else lurking. Have a great evening all....PPQP
