    Week of August 18

    OK, guess I’ll start off the new week

    Howdy Abbers from a very hot & humid Lav-land. A thunderstorm tried to move in this afternoon but it pretty much fizziled out. Maybe tonight for some much needed relief.
    Spent the afternoon trying to cool down my poor chickens with ice water & chilled watermelon slices. Yuo can really tell when they’re heat stressed.

    Had a long but easy evening with the grandsons, they finally left around 11 pm.
    Quiet here today, that’s for sure.

    Hello to Mick, PQ, Pauly, Det & anyone checking in.

    Stay cool everyone!

    Greetings Abbers,

    The heat & humidity was even worse today, yuck
    Looks like we have to wait until Friday for some relief. Seems like a looong time to wait.
    Went & had my teeth cleaned this morning, hair cut this afternoon, cooked dinner & now I’m just sitting. This heat wears me out.

    Mick, I suppose you’re not wearing any sort of face mask when using the spray paint. You really should pick up something at the hardware store dude. I react to harsh odors myself.

    Pauly, the Halloween candy hit the stores at the beginning of the month ~ ridiculous!
    I’m waiting for cooler weather too

    PQ, are you OK?

    Det, hope you are doing well.

    Hello to the missing folks & wishing everyone a decent night.

    MAE ALL...

    Sorry for MIA lately but it was a combination of no internet and then just feeling downright crappy. Got online yesterday for a bit to wish my brother a happy Bday, started to post on the thread and then everything crashed again.

    Back seems to feel better one day and then like I'm back at square one the next. I'm managing the pain every 4 hours and I can sure tell when it's time for my meds again! Went into work today to sort out internet issues there and get everyone caught up.

    I'm taking tomorrow off so will have more time to catch up. Hope everyone has a good night....PPQP

    hiya Lav ...the sunroom looks good but not as good as thosechairs feel ...yep had my first sleep in it trains are doing well ..Ive got to tidy up all the wiring and plan it properly Ive just made 2 station platforms ..I hate the plasticky ones ..

    hiya det you ok?

    Liverpool , where you have to break into someone's house quietly , for fear of disturbing burglars.

    The doctor told my wife that the tickling sensation she had been feeling in her head was caused by a parasitic insect trapped inside her auditory canal.
    He said he wasn't able remove it that day and to come back 2 days later.
    My wife got quite rude and caused a scene, demanding to be treated immediately.

    The doctor refused to be bullied and sent her home with a flea in her ear.

    Last night my wife and I started punching each other whilst wearing boxing gloves and singing 'Eye of the Tiger'.

    I think our marriage is going through a Rocky patch.

    "Does my bum look big in this skirt?"

    "Hang on, I think it's the light. There, that's better."

    "Turn it back on."

    Re: Week of August 18

    Good evening Abbers,

    Guess what> Still hot & humid here, yuck.
    My Golden Retriever friend is back for a few days. I really need to go out tomorrow & pick up some breath mints for her tomorrow. She’s turning 13 this month & I’m fairly certain my son has never had her in for a teeth cleaning, phew
    Trying to stay cool is a full time job here this summer.

    Mick, your room looks really cozy, I’m sure you will both enjoy spending time in there.
    It’s nice to get your FIL out of the house on a regular schedule, gives him something to look forward to.

    PQ, glad you are in motion somewhat & I really hope you heal up soon. No fun dealing with an aching back. If you have any extra cool air up there I’d sure appreciate it if you would send some this way.

    Hello to Pauly & Det, hope you both had a good day.
    Hello to the rest of the crew & wishing everyone a nice night!

    Lav

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...I love the chairs and the new paint job. You're right, yellow just wouldn't go right. Glad to hear you have something in place for your FIL, I think it will make a big difference. My MIL lived in an area where they went from door to door mail delivery to neighbourhood boxes. Her's was just at the end of her street, not far. When we set up home care for her the caregiver and her would walk to the mail boxes every day. It was just enough to get her out and mobile and it made a big difference. Still hanging in with the back pain and I'm finding I don't need to take as many meds as i have been so that's a good sign. Still taking it very easy. 1/2 day of work tomorrow and cards if there's a seat, I'm really liking this arrangement.

    Lav...I love dogs but got to admit that the bad breath is the worst. Every time my SIL could smell her Golden Retriever's breath it was off for a cleaning. She couldn't stand it either. LOL Wish I could send you some cooler air but it's currently 86! Back was feeling better today so headed out for a few groceries and then was going to go to the bank to get your cheque in the mail when I left the grocery store and realized I had locked my keys in the car! Haven't done that in 30 years. Luckily I have dealership roadside assistance coverage but it still took just over an hour. Needless to say I just came home. Positive side I got lots of vitamin C today.

    Waves to the rest of us, have a good night...PPQP
