    Re: January 12, 2020

    Ahoy ABerdooodles! slow morn after dropping off girly and making breakfast/lunches. Standing by for photoshoots for the day. may have a twilight shoot so far.

    Pauly, it's on Lake Las Vegas...the typically cheesy Vegas manmade lake silly rich folks just have to have something to brag about I suppose. Here's the house i shot:

    * Picture Shared album - London Lewis - Google Photos

    PPQ, your freezing weather actually made the news on NPR. owie. doing ok?

    Mick, scotchguarded your bed? doesn't that stuff have a strong odor? thanks for the kind words. my artsy night city-scapes are a very 'out there' style for sure but that's
    the idea. nobody breaks new ground in the art world by taking the same nice photo of a tree by a lake, not that there's anything wrong with them and i have loads of
    those kinds of shots in my file too.

    Here's a reeely whacked-out shot of the Vegas strip:

    * pic Shared album - London Lewis - Google Photos

    after that, coffee is on me!

    it's lacrosse night so dinner will be a tad late. going to make chicken/veggie kebabs on the kamado grill. yummo!

    Lav, creative sewing today?

    Treegirl, Sam all groovy?

    ciao for now loves

    Re: January 12, 2020

    Greetings folks,

    Det, retirement is weird because we always seem to be busy doing ‘work stuff’, haha! Glad you are keeping busy

    Pauly, that OTC sleep stuff kind of piles up in your system. It’s generally a good idea to skip a night at least once per week so your system can clear it naturally. Benadryl is especially problematic that way.

    Mick, I just remembered one of my daughter’s friends went & studied in Scotland for a year, she loved it there. She was an art major & I think she actually wanted to stay.
    All done with my gift project, now i’m going back to the rescue group sewing for the animals.

    I met some old work friends for lunch, stopped at the supermarket, threw some cubed chicken & pasta with a dairy free sauce in the IP for dinner & here I sit
    It was sunny & 50 ish today but now I need to get ready for the big weather change on the way. Our turn to deal with winter I guess.

    PQ, got the fire going tonight so I’m sending some your way.
    I haven’t tried out those machines I brought home yet. They are going to need some cleaning & oiling & all that. I will get to them eventually. Stay warm & don’t lick any metal poles!!!!

    Hello to everyone & wishing a nice night for all.
    Lav

    Re: January 12, 2020

    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...definitely not going to chill!!! Chili turned out great, I love topping it with cheddar cheese. I am a cheese fiend. I think that will be the first thing I cut out if I ever decide to eat properly.

    Mick...I've had those days where I seem really busy and it doesn't look like I've done anything. You watch out for those winds but I gotta say I'll take 7C over my -33C any day. This is supposed to come to an end this weekend with temps getting up to Mick's. It'll be a heat wave. Enjoyed an afternoon of cards, it's great when the so called boss isn't around. Ya there's been talk about who's going to pay for their security but by the sounds of it they want to be responsible themselves. They'll probably end up in Victoria especially with her mom living just south in California.

    Det...I've heard of Lake Las Vegas but have never seen it. What a house, great pictures! I like the whacked-out shot of the Vegas strip, kinda looks like Mick's train setup.

    Lav...thanks for the fire, I can sure use it tonight. Can hardly wait till cold snap is over! Last year we got it in February so maybe we'll get lucky. I bet the sewing machines haven't been used in awhile so yup you've got some prep work to do. Nope, won't lick any metal posts but we do walk the kids over to the school to make sure none of them think that kind of thing would be a good idea. It takes all kinds.

    Waves to Sam & TG...why can't I find a wave smiley?

    Popping in a frozen lasagna for dinner, that's about all the energy I have left. Have a good night all....PPQP

    right folks ..take it eazee

    A priest, a pastor, and a rabbi are walking down the street on a hot day and are quite thirsty. They pass a busy bar and want to go in and get a drink but have no money. But the priest comes up with an idea that he thinks might work, so he goes in alone, telling to others that if his idea works they can all get free drinks. He orders his drink, and when he's finished with it, the bartender gives him his tab.

    The priest says, "But son,... I already paid for the drink!"

    The bartender says, "I'm terribly sorry father but it's really busy in here and I must have forgotten."

    The priest goes out and tells the pastor and the rabbi what happened, so the pastor goes in next. The pastor orders his drink and then informs the bartender that he already had paid when the bartender asks him for the money. Again the bartender apologizes.

    Finally the rabbi goes in and orders his drink. Again the bartender gives him the tab and the rabbi tells him, "Son, I paid you when I ordered the drink."

    "I'm terribly sorry rabbi," says the bartender, "I don't know what's wrong with me, but your the third man of the cloth that I've done this to."

    "I'm sorry son," says the rabbi, "but I'm in a terrible hurry,... Just give me my change for the $20 I gave you, and I'll be on my way!"

    A fellow decides to take off early from work and go drinking. He stays until the bar closes at three in the morning, at which time he is extremely drunk. After leaving the bar, he returns home on foot.

    When he enters his house, he doesn't want to wake anyone, so he takes off his shoes and starts tip-toeing up the stairs. Half-way up the stairs though, he falls over backwards and lands flat on his back. That wouldn't have been so bad, except that he had couple of empty pint bottles in his back pockets, and they broke; the broken glass carved up his back terribly. Yet, he was so drunk that he didn't know he was hurt.

    A few minutes later, as he was undressing, he noticed blood, so he checked himself out in the mirror, and, sure enough, his behind was cut up terribly. He then repaired the damage as best he could under the circumstances, and he went to bed.

    The next morning, his head was hurting, his back was hurting, and he was hunkering under the covers trying to think up some good story, when his wife came into the bedroom.

    "Well, you really tied one on last night," she said. "Where'd you go?"

    "I worked late," he said, "and I stopped off for a couple of beers."

    "A couple of beers? That's a laugh," she replied. "You got plastered last night. Where did you go?"

    "What makes you so sure I got drunk last night, anyway?"

    "Well," she replied, "my first big clue was when I got up this morning and found a bunch of band-aids stuck to the mirror."

    An engineering student was walking across campus when another engineer rides up on a shiny new motorcycle.

    "Where did you get such a great bike?" asked the first.

    The second engineer replied,

    "Well, I was walking along yesterday minding my own business when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike. She threw the bike to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want. "

    The second engineer nodded approvingly, "Good choice; Her clothes probably wouldn't have fitted you."

    Thoughts on Exercise
    The only reason I would take up jogging is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.

    I have to exercise in the morning before my brain figures out what I'm doing.

    I don't exercise at all. If God meant us to touch our toes, he would have put them further up our body.

    I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

    I have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.

    The advantage of exercising every day is that you die healthier.

    Harry Henpecked had been ordered by his wife to buy only organic vegetables from the market garden.

    "These vegetables are for my wife," he said. "Have they been sprayed with any poisonous chemicals?"

    "No," said the gardener, "you'll have to do that yourself."

    In a small town in the US, there is a rather sizable factory that hires only married men. Concerned about this, a local woman called on the manager and asked him, "Why is it you limit your employees to married men? Is it because you think women are weak, dumb, cantankerous... or what?"

    "Not at all, Ma'am," the manager replied. "It is because our employees are used to obeying orders, are accustomed to being shoved around, know how to keep their mouths shut and don't pout when I yell at them."

    Late one Saturday evening, I was awakened by the ringing of my phone.

    In a sleepy grumpy voice, I said hello. The party on the other end of the line paused for a moment before rushing breathlessly into a lengthy speech. "Mom, this is Susan and I'm sorry I woke you up, but I had to call because I'm going to be a little late getting home. See, Dad's car has a flat but it's not my fault. Honest! I don't know what happened. The tire just went flat while we were inside the theater. Please don't be mad, okay?"

    Since I don't have any daughters, I knew the person had misdialed.

    "I'm sorry dear, "I replied, "but you've reached the wrong number. I don't have a daughter named Susan."

    "Gosh, Mom," came the young woman's voice, "I didn't think you'd be this mad."

    A couple was having a discussion about family finances. Finally the husband exploded, "If it weren't for my money, the house wouldn't be here!"

    The wife replied, "My dear, if it weren't for your money I wouldn't be here."

    A retired Italian wine maker went to the village church to make his confession for the first time in many decades.

    When the priest slid open the panel in the confessional, the man said, "Father, during World War II, a beautiful woman knocked on my door and asked me to hide her from the enemy. I hid her in my attic".

    The priest replied, "That was a wonderful thing you did, my son! You have no need to confess it."

    "It's worse than that, Father", he continued, "she quickly started to repay me with sexual favours."

    "People in wartime sometimes act in ways they wouldn't under normal conditions. If you are truly sorry for your actions, you are forgiven".

    "Thank you, Father. That's a great load off my mind. May I ask a question"?

    "What, my son"?

    "Should I tell her the war is over"?

    A man was sitting at a bar enjoying an after-work cocktail when an exceptionally gorgeous & sexy young woman entered. She was so striking that the man could not take his eyes away from her. The young woman noticed his overly-attentive stare & walked directly toward him.

    Before he could offer his apologies for being so rude, the young woman said to him, I'll do anything, absolutely anything, that you want me to do, no matter how kinky, for $100 on one condition'.

    Flabbergasted, the man asked what the condition was.

    The young woman replied, 'You have to tell me what you want me to do in just three words'.

    The man considered her proposition for a moment, withdrew his wallet from his pocket & slowly counted out five $20 bills, which he pressed into the young woman's hand.

    He looked deeply into her eyes & slowly, meaningfully said...

    'Paint my house'.
