    MAE ALL...

    Det...good to see you're hanging in there. Hope your online business is a huge success and you don't have to worry about a job.

    Pauly...I've experienced an infestation of grasshoppers before. Just north of where I used to live. Was driving up the highway and thought what is that, then they all started jumping. Scared the crap out of me. I don't know if I'd want Winslow eating them. I just wonder how much influence carrot top is having on all these people going crazy with guns. Hmm.

    Mick...oh no, not another downpour. Hornets have stayed away so I think we're good. Will keep an eye on it thought. Boy that's a lot of hiking plans you have, hope you space them out. LOL Most of the garden has come back after the hail storm we had. I'll try and get a pic up if I remember. Everything appears to be taking shape for card playing tomorrow. Hopefully there'll be a chair for me.

    Lav...will say Howdy now as I'm sure you'll be popping in soon.

    Winds have come up and warning just north of me. Think it's a soup kinda day. Have a good one all....PPQP

    Re: Week commencing 28th of July

    Good evening Abbers,

    Hot, hot & more hot today BUT tomorrow relief comes in the form of thunderstorms, rain, hail, grasshoppers ~ whatever, haha!!
    I think we have more tiny toads hopping around in the grass than grasshoppers this year. Probably due to the excess dampness.
    Another day & another mass shooting in the US. Today it was in a Mississippi Walmart & the shooter turned out to be an employee, geez.

    Det, glad you are hanging in & also getting your online shop going, very cool!
    I made a Facebook page for my crafty stuff this year so I don’t have to punish all my friends with craft pics, haha! Facebook sends frequent messages about the page telling me how many people viewed a new pic or pressed ‘Like’ on something. They also offer to Boost your posts for $30 or something. Not really sure what I want to do with all that yet.

    Pauly, so you married a Morman? Interesting to me because we don’t have any around here although they do show up at the door from time to time handing out literature. I don’t think they get much business here in cow country
    Of course we also get a share of Jehovahs Witness folks doing the same. The last visitor handed me an invitation to an event in Philadelphia. No thanks.

    Mick, I see N Korea is launching missiles again today. Do you think our Clowns in charge will do anything about that? LOL
    I am more than ready for some straight cool & dry weather, I bet you are as well.

    Hello to PQ & everyone.
    Have a nice night!

    Re: Week commencing 28th of July

    Greetings Abbers,

    Apparently it rained north & east of us but nothing here so far
    Guess I’ll go out & water a few plants when I’m done here, geez.

    Pauly, I guess you don’t get humidity often - it’s gross.
    Everyone I know is complaining of not feeling great lately & today even my dog is down & out. Hasn’t touched her breakfast yet, uh oh.

    Mick, YB dragged the big ladder out a few weeks ago to clear gutters right after a big storm. I don’t even know how they get so clogged, there’s no trees that close to the house. Great to get that job done for Julie’s dad

    Not much else happening here. Think I’ll spend the evening in my shop creating something nice, haha!
    Hello to everyone & wishing a nice night for all.

    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...was going to say hope you're surviving the heat with temps over 100 degrees but then I remembered you said you loved the heat. Hope the humidity goes away soon you didn't sign up for that. Do you still have all those grasshoppers?

    Mick...glad the loft is ok, wouldn't want anything to happen to the trains. It's hard to take videos/pictures of the rain, you just don't get the full effect. So I figure what I saw was actually 10 fold. Good on you going down to Julie's Dads. You be safe if you're climbing ladders.

    Lav...no rain here yet. Left work as the sky was turning black and wind picking up. Hope we get rain because I didn't go out and water. LOL Good luck creating something nice and I hope to see it on your FB page. I know it's early but will you be getting busier with Xmas coming up?

    Waves to Det, Sam, Pi, TG...hope all is well.

    Wishing everyone a peaceful evening....PPQP

    Re: Week commencing 28th of July

    Wed Greetings ABerooooodles!!

    well then, tad of rain on filthy Vegas was nice, now super humid though...ick.

    Pauly, the temple way out East on Bonanza? if so....we're neighbors!

    Mick, got the gutter all tuned-up?

    Lav, you're ahead of me on the ecommerce thing for sure but I'm making headway fast. Got my shopify store and domain somewhat
    figured out. Got two designs with mockups/description/pricing/sizing/colors etc posted. Got shopify linked to printful for automation... boy
    that was a head-scratcher but it's super neat now and a time saver. I set up a business FB page from business.facebook.c*m as it has a lot
    more features for scaling-up the biz as I strive for global domination by end of the year! Ok, I'll settle for not starving to death.

    Anyone hear from SK?

    PPQ, glad you are hornet-free. Ok, what kind of soup?

    Made a really fun and healthy rustic Mexican-inspired dish at GF's place last night...yummo.
    Didn't swim..need to take a break from the chlorine exposure.

    getting ready to head to a Refuge Recovery meeting in a few min here.. always good.

    This whole 'no income' thing is indeed a challenge to my ego, especially with ongoing discussions with GF and
    her daughter about forming our own little family. agh. sigh...
    but I know the only way forward is forward, and catastrophizing about it will be utterly self-defeating. Instead this is
    a very clear motivator to make my biz work, so I shall.

    That's a wrap for now. Be well loves!
