    Greetings all,

    Having severe embroidery machine problems at the moment that may end up costing me an arm & a leg to repair. This may just be another retirement in the making, oh well.
    Other than that everything is cool
    Stopped in to check on grandson, he’s OK & returning to school tomorrow!
    YB has a case of the grumps for absolutely no reason! Ha ha!!!!

    PQ, enjoy the balmy weather! Our temp is dropping below freezing right now, still 0 snow, strange.

    Pauly, weara a mask around those kids, Lol

    Cyn, I gave a loaf of that cinnamon bread to my son last evening. He even texted me this morning to say thank you so it must have been good.
    Don’t wear yourself too thin!

    Mick, I think it’s time for you to get a weather break!
    Keep the bunnies & your hair safe in all that windy wetaher.

    Hello to Det & Sam. Check in fellas!

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 16th Feb

    Greetings everyone,

    Hi Pauly, just you & me here so far today? I think Mick may have posted on last week’s thread, I’ll check.

    Cold here but sunny & dry. The weather folks said the weekend will be like Spring. Sounds good to me
    Spent the day researching & watching videos so I think we make be able to fix my broken machine - maybe!. I hate calling a service tech because the closest one lives in NJ & I owe him $300 just get here. Then more when he has to replace parts, labor, etc. I don’t want to put out that kind of money anymore. My assistant YB is going to help - I think!

    I’ll go & check on Mick, hello PQ, Cyn, Det & Sam!

    Have a nice night everyone!

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...is the broken machine one of the second hand ones you got or is it one of yours? I'd hate to bring in the repairman too at that price. Hope YB is a help.
    And you're right. I've copied Mick's post over to here.

    Greetings all and how are we today then question mark hope all is well the weather is performing as per lots and lots of lovely rain, But Wait For It tomorrow morning we are forecast to have sunshine not all day just the morning then back to rain again and next week we are in to storm Edna I think it is. Ok I'm going to show let's have a brew

    Hiya pauly and how are you today then question mark hope all is well with you yes us 60-year olds are quite active as well haha not yesterday the day before I did 22000 steps on my Fitbit hope you have a great weekend

    Hiya lav how are you? Hope all is well is the embroidery machine still broken or have you managed to fix it don't know about balmy weather we're having absolute barmy weather... it was trying to snow here earlier on but then turned to rain in fact the only thing it hasn't done is let yellow rays out

    Hiya p p q p and how are you today then question mark hope all is well in Canadia 1958 is 2 minutes till 8 at night yes I do use Google to check and search the internet, and yes you wouldn't have to leave some of of the rubbish that comes up
    Here's one for you you know how you said that's all cost quite a substantial amount of money to raise the in-ground plot ? No bearing in mind it is a community Project and helps the community is it not a viable proposition to get some local Assistance and my local Assistance I mean those convicted of crime but serving a community sentence or indeed prisoners who are eligible for day release.. it would be massive kudos for them and also great publicity for you

    Hello to everyone else but here there and everywhere take care and have a great weekend


    Mick...that suggestion of "local Assistance" is an interesting one. I'll have to do some investigating to figure out who to contact. I just know that it'll just be us regulars showing up to do all the work. Of course it's 2 minutes to 8 how difficult was it for me to subtract 1200! Hope you can enjoy some of the sunshine before the weather turns. We're expecting flurries and then snow tomorrow.

    Pauly...I really enjoy the seniors at my work. We have a great time together, they just say it like it is. Haha.

    Time to relax, so glad it's Friday. Have a great night all....PPQP

    Mae all -

    Another long one, just got home at 7:30, fed and walked the dog and then opened the pad to talk to you all and found a Message from an acquaintance from 20 years ago, sharing some some professional memories about that time... made me think back and think about the whirlwind my life has been for the last almost 2 decades... much of which has been posted on this site... once again thanks all for being here.i actually looked at FB too this evening, first in a long time. Some day I'll have a little more normal existence! Maybe!? Anyway, in the midst of this political madness it is sometimes comforting to go back to the past - briefly-

    Wishing all a good night and happy tomorrow - I think it is Saturday? With these strange work weeks, I get confused!

    Happy moments to you all -

    Mae everybody, Mick 22,000 steps is fab! People don't realize that you really do hafta move alot to get those steps, quick runs to the grocery store and walking around the house don't cut it, takes effort! PQ, how's your son doing? How are you doing? I'm still figuring out this iron thing, doc called me and said my ferritin level is low but overall things look ok and to keep taking the iron but omg those pills make me sick! Cyn, busy, busy you are! Glad you got a little down time and just meaningless scrolling on fb, frickin DT was in town yesterday and people were lined up around the corner! He's got his followers yet so did Hitler I suppose, sorry to bring up political stuff I'm just baffled by the whole thing and really have had to take a step back, the caucus is here today too, little Bernie seems to be taking off like a bullet, I like him but wonder if he's healthy enough to really get the job done? Anyhoo enough on that (sorry) Lav, hope all the g-kids are feeling better, I pulled my back trying to wrestle Romeo into his carseat yesterday, oh jeez I hafta lift him in a specific way and I guess I forgot yesterday haha, much love to all and wishes for a great BF Saturday!

    Re: 16th Feb

    Hi everybody how are we today then? Hopefully I've got the right thread today !I was doing it on my phone yesterday so it obviously has a mind of it's own. Pouring down with rain out here and yes blowing a gale both rabbits are in the conservatory and playing between there and the garage I stopped load of food inside toilet rolls and they have made a real mess ripping them apart, but it can always be cleared up later on. I was thinking about going metal detecting tomorrow, certainly not thinking about it now been up on the railway this afternoon putting a new signal lights, and now I'm watching the rugby Scotland vs Italy

    Hiya pauly how are you today ? hope all is well with you despite the visitation of Mr Trump hope you have a great weekend

    Hello tree girl how are you ? Hope all is well and the weather is a bit better than is here the same as you I often look back at the years and think where have they gone The key is to live for today hope you have a great weekend
    Hiya ppqp how are you doing today? Hope all is well yes that's really worth looking in to see if you can get the extra help ..after all it iscommunity payback isn't it? Have you still got snow there?

    hiya Lav yep I posted on the wrong post !!!hows the machine fixing going? hope you get it all sorted correctly without shelling out 300 dollars just to get someone there ...another thing is ..why dont you ask on fb or pininterest if anyone near you has any knowledge of that type of machine?you never know.

    wonder where everyone else went that used to be on here ...

    I had been at the pub till midnight.

    When I got to the bottom of the stairs, I got undressed, switched off the lights and started to sneak up.

    "What the fck are you doing?" asked the bus driver.

    Modern university exam question: If we divide 125 genders by 3 bathrooms how much climate change do we have?

    My window cleaner was in a filthy mood today.
    Banging, clattering, swearing.
    I think he's lost his rag.

    I arrived at the restaurant a bit early.

    "Would you mind waiting for a while?" asked the maitre d'.

    "Not at all," I replied.

    "Good," he said, "take these burgers and chips to table 7."

    Three priests were in a railroad station on their way home to Pittsburgh. Behind the ticket counter was a very sexy, shapely, well endowed woman wearing a very tight, skimpy sweater. She made the three priests very nervous, so they drew straws to determine who would get the tickets.

    The first priest approached the window. "Young lady, I would like three pickets to titsburg", He completely lost his composure and fled.

    The second priest goes to the window. "Young lady, I would like three tickets to Pittsburgh and I would like the change in nipples and dimes". Mortified, he too fled.

    "Morons...." the third priest mutters and moves to the window. "Young lady, I would like three tickets to Pittsburgh and I would like the change in nickels and dimes. And, if you insist on dressing like that, when you get to the pearly gates, St. Finger's going to shake his Peter at you".

    They took the bus.

    Womanly Truisms

    Life is an endless struggle full of frustrations and challenges, but eventually you find a hair stylist you like.

    Perhaps you know why women over fifty don't have babies: They would put them down somewhere and forget where they left them.

    One of the life's mysteries is how a two pound box of candy can make a woman gain five pounds.

    The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

    Time may be a great healer, but it's also a lousy beautician.

    Brain cells come and brain cells go, but fat cells live forever.

    Life not only begins at forty, it begins to show.

    Just when I was getting used to yesterday, along came today.

    If at first you don't succeed, see if the loser gets anything.

    I had to give up jogging for my health. My thighs kept rubbing together and setting my pantyhose on fire.

    Amazing! You just hang something in your closet for a while, and it shrinks two sizes.

    Age is important only if you're cheese or wine.

    The only time a woman wishes she were a year older is when she is expecting a baby.

    Freedom of the press means no-iron clothes.

    Inside some of us is a thin person struggling to get out, but she can usually be sedated with a few pieces of chocolate cake.

    Fifteen minutes after the Titanic sank, Arthur and John find themselves hugging a piece of wreckage from the great ship.

    The water is freezing, sharks are swimming nearby and of course, the Titanic is long gone.

    "Oh well," says Art, "It could have been worse".

    "Worse? How could it have been worse"? screams John.

    "We could have bought return tickets".

    Hidy ho ABErooooooos!

    oh my, been bouncing about like a pinball I tell ya. more than 20 photo shoots since I last posted. whew! but also... yay!

    GF had VIP invites to some political thing we weren't even sure what it is (through her work) it was the Dem caucus here in Vegas recently. I was
    close enough to Bernie, Warren, Biden etc I could have bounced a dinner roll off of them. But the security was heavy to I kept my table manners.
    It was entertaining at least and fancy dinner to boot. We accidentally got seated at Biden's table so security was all over us... and i don't even do well
    in crowds... egad.

    anyhoo, just been a crazy busy guy but made it to a Refuge meet yesterday morn which was great. Learning some italiano every day ono duolingo which is fun.
    There's a lovely Netflix show "the gardens of Italy" so I'm taking mental vacations that way. Still cooking most nights when I'm not working late.

    Lav, for sure do the DIY fix on the embroidery machine if you can.... youtube to the rescue! hope that works.

    Treegirl, sorry they have you working so late... that's crazy. we just work ourselves to death in this society it seems. ommmmm ommmm.
    i'm going to figure out how to get my bum to Italy and live in the countryside... so there!

    Pauly, are you enjoying the storm and lightning? LOL i like the lightning part for sure...hope to get a pic.

    Mick, did that sunshine roll in for you?

    PPQ, skiing to work?

    ok, time to figure out something garlic-infused for dinner....

    be well loves!
