    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...16 years! Wow that's a long time. Bet you've gone through quite a fee coworkers. I hear Vegas is pretty cold these days. I used to laugh at all the people in coats and gloves when I'd go down in November. Are you taking the g/kids out trick or treating tomorrow?

    TG...sounds like your friends are in good hands and I'm glad you didn't have to travel. I hope everything goes good for them. It looks like Montreal (and some other cities) are going to postpone Halloween till Friday Nov 1st due to freezing rain warnings. Wonder how that would go over in Calgary. I remember trick or treating in -20F weather.

    Mick...how could you not put a door on the hutch? Scratching my head. How dare Jeeves claim the new space for himself. Serves him right for you dismantling it. LOL Sounds like you had a good day out with your friend. Like Lav says, they don't make them like that anymore.

    Det....can't pull anything over on you eh? LOL Your technical twilight photoshoot sounds cool. Are you going by yourself? You'll do great, no need for any anxiety. Make sure you bundle up, I hear it's cold down there.

    Lav...glad you survived the day. Surprised about the pulps? I'm surprised if they don't find any and they're always benign. LOL Sorry to hear about your daughter's job, that's got to be unsettling. Sounds like she's got a positive attitude with a plan in place already. We had a healthcare worker murdered by her client in Calgary yesterday. Apparently he had multiple mental health issues and there was supposed to be two workers at all times. Due to cutbacks that didn't happen. What are people thinking. Hope your weary brain gets a good rest.

    Pi...I'm wondering how you're doing as well and miss seeing your posts.

    Sam...are you all ready for winter?

    It's fettuccine alfredo for dinner tonight so must get at it. Have a restful evening all...PPQP

    Mae all -

    Mick, what fun pics of the museum - I particularly like the "Come to the Fair" - looks so jolly. I remember the video shots of the spitfires coming in to save the day in the movie Dunkirk - about the little boats going to help the evacuation. I still think that is one of the most heartening events of recent decades... I wish that we could have pride in country and solidarity like that now, sigh.

    Lav, crossing fingers here that all tests turn out to be benign. So sorry to hear about your daughter's position being eliminated, so frustrating. Will she still be able to work in her chosen field? Hope so. Our healthcare system is really a convoluted wreck... I wonder how/if it can be changed... I just am going to try to be as healthy as possible, and have AAA super-duper accident/hospital/home stay insurance on top of my useless, expensive Blue Cross insurance, which covers next to nothing. Hoping that will see me through! I've learned a lot about what Medicare does and doesn't pay for while helping my friends...

    Pauly, OK, I'll head over to FB to see the costumes - I bet the boys are excited! Terrible weather here - gale winds and rain, poor kids. I remember one year when I dressed as a playing card - Queen of Hearts - with big placards... every time a wind came up, I was practically flying down the street... went home in tears!

    PPQ, hope the alfredo was good. I have to avoid, gluten and dairy, so I can only dream about that! But I made a great beef stew with kale and sweet potatoes... that will see me through on this blustery day. Did you get your X-RAY results? Hope they were good.

    Det - sounds like you have landed a perfect job for yourself! Creative and challenging - good luck with the nite-shoot.

    Hello to Sam and all others.

    May we be well --

    MAE ALL....

    Neighbour came over ringing the doorbell and banging on the door at 11:45pm last night. I thought the condo was on fire!! Turns out he couldn't get his car started and wanted to borrow one of the boys' battery charger. FFS...what an a$$hole. He parks beside me and backed out enough to block my car but that doesn't give him the right to come and disturb us! One of the boys went out and gave him a boost, that wouldn't have been my choice. So then I couldn't get back to sleep until about 2am and was awake again at 5am. Things were really slow at work so at noon I told the boss I was going home. Hence the early post. LOL

    Pauly...at least you won't have any snow to deal with tonight will you? It was snowing today but has stopped now. Hope it stays away.

    TG...the Queen of Hearts flying down the street would have been something to see. LOL The alfredo hit the spot, quick and easy. Xray isn't till Monday and I get the results right away. The trauma doc goes over it with me.

    Shout out to everyone else stopping by, I'll pop back later....PPQP

    HAPPY BREXIT DAY! EVERYBO... Oh wait!

    A spokesperson for Labour has confirmed that all interviews given by Dianne Abbott over the forthcoming election campaign will be shown live on Comedy Central.

    Re: oct27th

    Good evening Abbers & Happy Halloween,

    I haven’t had a trick-or-treater at my door since I moved here 16 years ago. Kinda miss the fun & the excited little faces.
    YB was fine today, he went out & met a friend for lunch. I hit the supermarket & came home & put together a vegan lentil shepherds pie which was very tasty. YB is going to have to get used to more meatless meals. I have preached the wonders of a high fiber diet for decades but he prefers meat & dairy which have no fiber. Maybe he’ll start listening & complying a bit.

    PQ, that’s terrible about the murdered healthcare worker. I hope the family sues the employer’s ass off
    I only ever did a little home care work because I was leery of the dangers of being alone in some areas. You generally feel safer in a hospital setting but there’s no guarantees.
    It’s 72 degrees here right now with 76% humidity - feels like a yucky summer’s day.

    Pauly, how cold is it in Vegas? Ha ha! I hope you & the boys enjoy some trick or treating tonight

    Mick, we actually do buy quite a bit from the Amish. There’s few stores around here & if they have what you want, why not? It’s just weird going into their shops with no lighting. They run their cash registers on battery or propane power. Everything is closed up tight in Sundays of course. The ones that are most interested in making money buy prepaid cell phones & call people like YB when they need rides or need their products transported from one place to another. They leave the cell phone out in little outhouse looking structures, never carry them or take them in their houses. I might hire youto make some chicken toys for my girls - they get bored too, Lol

    Cyn, I’ve been on Medicare since last Dec 1 & we have a Blue Cross supplemental plan & I’ve already been ripped off for routine blood work. I really don’t know what to do about it, just deal I guess. I’ve informed my NP to hold off on ‘routine’ stuff until I can find out more. What a pain.
    We’ve had a good bit of rain, it’s windy now & there’s a tornado warning just north of us in Lancaster County tonight, geez. Supposed to be cold tomorrow morning.

    Hello to Det & Sam & Pie.

    Have a good night everyone.

    PPQ, I had a crap night's sleep also..ugh. just couldn't get my brain to shut off after a very interesting and exciting... and long... photoshoot.
    Editing pics off and on all day. about 1/3 of the way done. ack! it's the slow part for me but great to be learning so much and my clients so far
    have had nothing but raves. whew!

    Lav, glad YB survived the ordeal...hope the tests come back A OK. i have zero health insurance as usual. Must try to not get my ass injured that's for sure.

    Pauly, I dunno... lot of guys shivering around here too. Bundle up!

    Tree, that sounds like an awesome stew!

    speaking of food... time to serve homemade chili and salad...

    I just had a WKD with ice in it.
    It was Wicked.



    A delivery man knocked on my door today and said, "I have a parcel for your next door neighbour."
    I said, "you've got the wrong house then mate! "



    A grasshopper goes into a bar, hops up on the counter and says to the bartender, "give me a drink."
    The bartender says, "hey, there's a cocktail named after you!"
    The grasshopper says, "you mean there's a drink called Bob?"



    Where do Abba eat their dinner?
    They go Fer Nando's.



    Everyone's blaming me for the animal noises on the video conference at work. Seems I've been made into a Skypegoat



    After years of research scientists have identified the biggest cause of dry skin...
    Towels.

    There was a group of women gathered at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with their husband.

    The women were asked, "How many of you love your husbands?"

    All the women raised their hands.

    Then they were asked, "When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?"

    Some women answered today, some yesterday, some didn't remember.

    The women were then told to take their cell phones and send the following text to their respective husbands: I love you, sweetheart.

    Then the women were told to exchange phones and read the responding text messages.

    Here are some of the replies:

    1. Eh, mother of my children, are you sick?
    2. What now? Did you crash the car again?
    3. I don't understand. What do you mean?
    4. What did you do now? I won't forgive you this time!!!
    5. ??!!??
    6. Don't beat about the bush, just tell me how much you need?
    7. Am I dreaming??????
    8. If you don't tell me who this message is actually for, you will die today!
    9. I asked you not to drink anymore!!

    And the best one:
    10. Who is THIS???

    Re: oct27th

    Greetings Abbers,

    We had some wicked storms last evening but nothing damaged. An area about halfway between here & where my daughter lives had an EF-2 tornado touch down & it damaged several houses, took out trees & power lines but no one was hurt, thankfully!
    Today it’s dry & much colder, my kind of weather

    Det, I imagine it would be hard to wind down after a day like that, haha! Good luck with the pics & hope your client is happy with them.
    I made a big pot of vegetable cabbage soup with white beans today. Can you say High Fiber????? Lol

    Pauly, sorry Romeo wasn’t up for Halloween this year. There’s always next year for him.
    I liked your costume, you looked great!

    Mick, the Amish are committed to living off the grid so anything that doesn’t make the grade stays outside including their cell phones. It’s weird but that’s what they do. I laugh when they call YB after dark because you know they are sitting in their little outhouses with a flashlight or candle, haha!

    Hello to PQ, hope you are doing well.

    Cyn, how did your day go?

    Wishing everyone a nice night!
    Lav
