    Mae all -

    Sounds like things ar chugging along for all - Mick, watch out -you remember I used to be a bush-whacker, I know how easy it is to do too much!!! Sam, that's quite the kitty - she/he is lucky to have found such a good home. PPQ, keep visualizing gardens! That sounds like the way to cope with all this early spring snow! Det, are taking your temp occasionally? A fierce headache was my initial symptom for the virus... just a caution - enjoy your shoot today! - but we watchful of how you are feeling. Lav, how is your son? When he goes back to work will he have good PPE? I really worry about the first responders. Also your friend in the nursing home? How is she? So glad you got the a Costco run out of the way, good idea, now you can stay home in the country. Pauly, I need to find you on IG -you too Det! Can't remember my user name, but will let all know... tho I hardly ever post there. Pauly, I think our pets are letting us know what they think,about this situation... there's always something about poo that is going on here - yesterday my pup (old) did an entire poop all the way across about 9 feet of floor and carpet... I think I got his message!!!

    Things are OK here - I am pretending that I know how to handle bathing, shaving and washing up a 170-lb man! Going OK so far. The worry now is that he is a little daft, substituting words and can't remember some others... NY times has reported brain issues with this damn virus... i'm hoping it is oxygen related and nothing else (he takes the O2 off and then forgets to put it back on again in the night... so the beat goes on,

    Wishing all a healthy day and please try to find happiness in at least a few moments. And turn off the TV! Light and health to all

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...nice job on the costco run, one thing you don't have to think about for awhile. We have now been advised by our Chief Medical Officer that the wearing of masks is another measure we can take to protect those around us if physical distancing isn't possible. She did caution that while wearing one you tend to touch your face more, adjusting it. A new company, costume design & manufacturing, has tweaked their business and is now compiling sewing kits to make surgical gowns. They send the kits out to sewers and the gowns are then donated to homeless shelter staff. What a great idea. I'm pretty good at all this IT stuff except when it comes to hardware/software my boys have installed. They are computer geeks and will do anything to work around microsoft software. Good job on the NO WAY response to returning to the job.

    Sam...I thought I was reading TG's post and was wondering what deed work she needed to do for her business. LOL I wonder if it is the new norm if it will actually be better. It's never too late to learn how to play bridge. It is recommended you don't partner with your mate as divorces have known to materialize. LOL

    TG...got a feeling visualizing gardens is as close as we're going to get to a growing season here. We have more snow heading in for the Easter Long Weekend. Funny, long weekends just don't mean the same right now. This is the first time I've heard of brain issues with this virus. I do remember my brother in law was on oxygen and experienced the same thing so hopefully that's it. Sounds like you're coping but it's got to be exhausting. You take care of yourself.

    Mick...nice job on the wall and gravel relocating, it looks great and I hope it helps with the flooding. Glad to hear there was no reference to back pain. It is white over here. LOL Temps have warmed up with a bit of a chinook blowing through right now. Going to be short lived as we're back to cold temps and snow this weekend. Easier to stay put that way I guess.

    Det...if you've got some spare time, Mick needs a couple of these Tshirts. det.jpg

    Off to put the kettle on and make breakfast. Will be back later....PPQP

    Re: Abbers April~5th

    Greetings Abbers,

    ‘Twas a nice day in the neighborhood, sun, high 60’s. Rain predicted the rest of the week so we don’t get too accustomed to nice weather, haha!
    I have 1 more mask to stitch up tonight for pick up tomorrow. Then I guess I’ll just start on another batch of them. My DIL presented me with two big bags of fabric from her Mom’s stash which was nice.
    Everyone seems OK , my son returned to work yesterday & the rest are doing fine. Hope it stays that way.

    Sam, there’s probably only 1 or 2 people manning the courthouses these days so everyone’s waiting their turn.
    I am so focused on the present I can’t seem to be able to make any plans for the future, beyond this week anyway.

    Cyn, sorry to hear your husband has some lingering effects going on. His O2 sat is OK most of the time? Sometimes just being hospitalized disorients people. But they usually rebound on their own. Maybe you can try giving him small tasks to do & see how he responds. Like ‘brush your teeth & call me when you’re done’. Set up his shaving equipment & tell him to do the best he can & you’ll be right back. That’s how we motivate people in rehab so they get back to doing their personal care on their own. It’s tiring looking after another grown person, I know. Take care of you too

    Mick, the pic looks great & I hope you have solved the flooding issue. That’s a lot of work for an old dude, LOL
    Any plans for future detecting days or is that on hold too?

    PQ, sorry about the white outside your windows. Did anyone tell the weather people that Easter is coming in just a few days? Haha.
    I just had to teach YB about mask wearing - they always ride up on your face & the best thing to do is pull them down slightly so they rest under your chin & adjust from that area if necessary. That way you’re keeping your hands away from your eyes & nose. I had a bit of a nightmare concerning that message from the hospital wanting me to retu`rn. I told them NO because my grandsons just lost one grandmother & they can’t lose another so soon!!!!! I guess that’s why I had no problem refusing their request without a moment’s thought

    Hello Det & Pauly!

    Have a nice night all!

    Staff at St Thomas' have reported Boris Johnson is looking bloated, sweaty, generally disheveled and talking incoherently. A Spokesperson said..
    "It's encouraging to see him look like his old self again."

    This time last year we were all looking forward to leaving the EU.

    Now I'm just looking foward to just leaving the fcking house.

    Trump says take drug chloroquine for coronavirus because you have nothing to lose.

    And if it causes blinding headaches, vision loss and agonising cramps, throw it in your swimming pool to purify the water.

    I was in the countryside and, feeling a bit peckish, I decided to have a Ploughman's lunch.

    He didn't notice as he was miles away on his tractor.

    "What was?"

    heya cats n kitties, sorry to be a tad down but that's just how I am today.
    girly had a huge blowout last night threatening to run away and screaming the most gut-wrenching things at her mum that
    I really don't care to relate. I had nightmares last night and am seriously looking at moving out as I'm fearful that girly will levy some
    kind of fabricated legal claim against me. she's that manipulative and short-sighted. scary to realize that a 14yo girl has that kind of legal force
    when weilded with immorality. my apologies again, this isn't fun and I'm not sure what to do. Her mum and I will be talking more this eve
    when she gets off work. I care so much for the both of them and my poor heart is quaking.

    be well loves

    Re: Abbers April~5th

    Good evening Abbers,
    a
    Det, I am so sorry to hear this.
    Unfortunately 14 yr old girls can do a lot of harm (legally speaking). It might just be wise to step out for a while, at least until she gets her violent mood swings under control. You don’t want to become a victim, you don’t deserve that. Take good care of yourself please

    Mick, I hope you are resting easy tonight. Your body doesn’t heal if it’s under Continuous stress.
    Even YB announced today that he told his Amish customers no more rides until this virus is better contained. He feels that their community is not taking this situation serious enough despite all the articles he’s given them to read. Maybe with no one to drive them around they’ll start getting a little more serious.

    Sam, we saw John Prine perform with Bonnie Raitt many moons ago in Philly. Sad to see he’s gone. Take care of yourself too!

    Hi Pauly, hope you are well! Hi PQ, same to you.

    Have a nice night everyone.,

    Re: Abbers April~5th

    Mae everybody, never heard of John Pine, was sad when Bill Withers died, his "Lovely day" song always makes me happy Det, one of my brothers was married to a lady with two young daughters for a pretty long time, the oldest was always a little brat and she made sexual abuse claims against him, nothing came of it but he did move out and later they divorced, I don't trust these little girls cuz I know what bitches they can be cuz I treated my dad like trash for YEARS when I was a teenager! It's just that age, hormones are raging, she probably feels like she's not getting her mom's attention (even if she is) I also think a bit of jealousy is thrown into the mix, I dunno but be on guard and please protect yourself! Mick, love the pics Lav, we keep getting lots of Costco calls on instacart and they pay great but no way am I standing in that line! Plus I like stores that aren't so huge, it's quicker, PQ, do you have any Easter plans? Cyn, how's hubs? How are you feeling? Hi Sam, woke up early as crazy this morning, think I took my iron pills too late yesterday and it wired me who knows, much love to all and wishes for a great BF Thursday!
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"

    Off the table no MATTER what.

    Re: Abbers April~5th

    hiya all ...how are we today then?hope everyone is doing good .Last night I didnt feel so great ,so got a doctors appointment by phone this morning .turns out Ive got secondary bronchitis ..see even the illnesses I get are second hand!!! so Im now on antibiotics 3 times a day ..and yep Ive got to stay in ..but guess what......my dance card wasnt too full anyways ......my social calendar is a doodle page!
    Today has been an enforced and I mean enforced day of doing nothing ...every time I go to do something madam is like ..and what are you doing..Ive drunk more cawfee than enough .

    wasgoingto say brew time but I will sack it ..

    hiya pauly hows you then today? hope all is well with you n yours .Easter plans ? dont know eggsactly where I will be ...might go for a day out to the greenhouse..

    hiya Det ..tough call mate ..for me though there is one or two questions I would ask myself ..do you enjoy being with this lady and sharing life .do you regret or have any doubts about her |?answer them and you will know what to do ..
    Pauly has nailed it ..the daughter is jealous of the attention ...dot forget she has been the only one to get her mums affection and attention..then you come along and its all of a sudden got to be shared ..take into that a teenage girl with 2000 parent would still be stroppy and a pain.As for the accusations ...ok you walk away now ...whats to stop her saying you already had dome something ..the mere fact you walked could be construed by some as corroborative
    Get your piece of paper ..draw a line down the middle aplus sign on one side the other a minus.. then write down all the positive reasons for staying ..and the other all the negative ones ..no one is going to see it so you can be as honest and brutal as you want and as lateral.Once you have exhausted that ..dont just say thats it ..give it a coupla days for more ideas ..then look at the list ..a pretty good indicator for you my friend .
    If you stay you need a plan ..if you go you need a plan so dont be hasty ..remember what you have got versus what you had .You want to talk in pm? feel free mate .

    hiya Lav hows you doing then? ok I hope ..good for yb ...family first ...All my seeds came today so itsdef a busy weekend ...you stay safe

    teegee hows things with you? hows hubby .x

    pppq ..you ok ? have you still got the snow?and the croupier hat????take care x

    right folks thats me will try n put some jokes up later ,,my brain is a bit addled!

    take care all

    At the Curvy Brides Boutique - on TV:

    "We can do the alterations, love. 400 pounds?"

    "That's a lot of money."

    "Money? I was trying to gauge your weight."

    My son's school is going over the top with distance learning, now.

    They've started to dish out online detentions.

    A man has been jailed for killing his partner by throwing his phone at her throat.

    In hindsight she probably should’ve taken his threats to ring her neck a little more seriously.

    I asked my next door neighbour why he had number thirty four painted on his bin when he lived at number eight,

    "It's so the binmen will leave it near my house after they have emptied it, " he replied.

    I don't know how much longer I can keep getting out of bed at the crack of 5:30pm.

    Does the 10 mile queue into the Supermarket count as your daily exercise ?

    A word of warning when eating sweetcorn, it doesn't digest in the stomach very quickly.
    I've just sneezed and farted at the same time and shot the dog.

    What do you call a teacher who’s always late?

    Do you wanna meter?

    What’s the opposite of rose tinted glasses.

    Skeptikals.

    What did the blanket say when it fell off the bed?

    Oh sheet!
