    Re: 26 April

    Greetings friends,

    Where is everyone today? Glad to see you Pauly!

    I just finished giving YB an earful about voting for Trump again (I know he did last time). After seeing Pence on the news today visiting staff & patients at the Mayo Clinic with NO MASK on I just got so angry. He ignored the clinic’s mask policy even though he had been informed ahead of time. What a POS
    Today was a real nice day, sunny & just warm enough to be out without a jacket. That all changes forteh next two days though, back to cold rain.

    Mick, unusual for you to miss a visit, hope you. Are OK.

    Hey to PQ, Det, Pie & Sam. Hope everyone is happy & healthy

    Cyn, I was so happy to read that your husband is stabilizing, thank the universe

    I am scouring the internet for a new sewing machine. I have at least 5 here that are aged & not working & I want to sew stuff. As soon as the stores reopen in Delaware I’ll be making a trip to spend some money on a nice brand new model. I’m worth it, haha!!! I already told my daughter than she can have when I’m gone, it should keep her happy for years. Can’t wait for a new Bernina in my shop.

    Wishing everyone a decent night!
    Lav
    AF since 03/26/09

    Success comes one day at a time

    MAE ALL...

    Pi...yup, got my hat hat.PNG just need my mask to go under it. I'm glad things aren't as bad as you anticipated. Speaking from experience, it's amazing how fast we go back to the amount of AL we were drinking just before we quit.

    Lav...look at you go...now dog training! It will definitely be an interesting election in November if DT doesn't move the date. I still live by the house rule, you don't ask who someone voted for? A new Bermina...you're right, you do deserve it. I think we should all plan on doing/buying something special for ourselves when this is over. Something positive for us to look forward to.

    TG...I'm glad Lav caught us up, that's great news. You are continually on my mind.

    Pauly...you'll never figure people out. I do love "people watching" though. There has been an onslaught of "black market" haircuts here. I just don't understand some people either.

    Waves to Det, Sam, Mick. Hoping you all had a good day.

    Had a really good video conference call with boss and supplier today. Technology is wonderful...when it works. Temps going up to 70F tomorrow so plan on spending some time outside. Have a good night all....PPQP

    PQ, that hat’ll do just fine. Great choice! I just finished my first Zoom yoga class, and I didn’t hate it. Think I can make it work for now.

    Our governor is opening retail, restaurants, movies, and some other stuff on Friday. Lav, our fabric stores have been open all along with big lines of customers waiting to get inside. Pretty sure they sell sewing machines as well . Probably Amazon does too if you don’t want to wait.

    Pauly, hair salons and gyms aren’t included in this first phase of openings, so we’ll stay shaggy awhile longer.

    Re: 26 April

    Mae everybody, Mick glad you got some money back, I honestly don't think we'll be taking any family trips this year, sure things MIGHT be open this summer but it's still gonna be weird and you guys know I love the beaches in California but I'm not sitting on the beach with a mask on-the beach smell is the best part so I'll wait til next summer+we can't really make plans cuz everything is still up in the air, anyone hear outta Cyn? Lav? I hope things turn out ok, Pie, salons will probably be one of the last to open here too, it's just too close of contact, state board sent us an email yesterday with their plan layed out, no magazines, no people waiting inside (thank goodness for that but if course they'll bitch about standing in the heat, not my problem go wait in your car!) Masks for everyone, tempature taking, protective eyewear for us(oh goodie) some other stuff, I told the owner that shop needs to be deep cleaned before I even step foot in the damn place, it was filthy before and there's no way those sanitation things can be effective if the place is a dump, tbh I don't really even want to go back, I may take the first week off and see how the grocery delivery level is and just do that til I can get a job at a chain salon where everything is provided and if something happens again I can actually get unemployment, kinda done with that dumpster fire shop, you all know I have been for some time, on the other hand I kinda wanna go back just to make some quick cash in case everything shits down again, oh dilemmas, sorry all about me just a mind going a mile a minute! I love you all and wish you all a fabulous AF day!
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"

    Re: 26 April

    heya ABeroooos!

    not dead here, just insanely busy. I have more work than I can possibly catch up with. ack! I'm taking over completely for my boss who's back
    is now so bad that he had to return to UT awaiting surgery which is of course delayed due to panic and the sky falling.

    The heat here is killing me. the houses I'm shooting are most always without any AC because they aren't lived-in so it's like 110 in there and wearing a face
    mask breathing my own superheated air... I'm so heat-sick I can't eat and it's all I can do to drink enough water. sorry to be whiny but this isn't fun like this
    so doing what I can do improve the situation. On the plus side I have work!
    people are super busy here again, traffic is up to it's annoying normal standards etc. I don't know a single person that has c19 and I don't think I know anyone that knows
    anyone else that has it. Weird how this can be so regional.
    ok, another 9 hours of sweating with no lunchbreak coming up.... yeee haw. I'm wearing shorts today... screw it.
    Mick, sorry, what appt are you trying for? I hope it's not teeth again. owie.

    be well loves, will try to find some breathing time soon to catch up xoxo

    MAE ALL...site acting up a little today. Couldn't get on to begin with and then it said it didn't save my post. I know why you posted twice now Det. I did the same thing but was able to delete one of them.

    Pi...congrats on the Zoom yoga class and the fact that you didn't hate it. LOL Turns out my son is doing yoga online as well. I am shocked but think it will help with his depression/anxiety.

    Mick...it gets to the best of us, glad you're feeling better. Sorry about the mix up with the tests, I know what that feels like. I book all my own appointments and if I can't I become a pain in the a$$ confirming everything is booked properly. I learned a lot about becoming your own health advocate while my Dad was in extended care. It's not that others are incompetent, everyone is over worked and nobody's perfect. Good job on getting the van fixed at a reduced cost and getting your vaca money back. Consider yourself ahead of the game.

    Pauly...I'm with you about vacationing, I'm staying put. And I know the feeling of your mind going a mile a minute. The city has now extended the closure of all Community Centres till the end of August. I'm starting to get a little nervous about money and am trying not to dwell on it. The Government and Association has us covered wage wise till the end of June. I'm hoping the support programs will continue and if not our board will be able to support us. My previous boss had created an emergency fund of $500,000 in case something drastic happened and it has. I'll be keeping a close eye on what my current boss offers us.

    Det...glad you're not dead and able to keep busy in spite of the heat. Keep up the water intake and try to eat, maybe fruit for now?

    TG...thinking of you.

    Time for breakfast and then I'm out for a walk. Increasing my distance slowly everyday and paying close attention to my breathing. Hope we all have a good day....PPQP

    Just been listening to a conversation between to old women who were observing social distancing:

    "Windy isn't it?
    "No, it's Thursday"
    "So am I, let's have a nice cup of tea"

    Private schools will reopen before state ones because those children are more important.

    They say it is bad luck to open an umbrella indoors. However when I did so yesterday and accidentally hit my mother-in-law in the eye, on the way to A&E I found a quid down the side of the car seat

    One million copies of a new book sold in just two days due a a typing error of just one alphabet character in the title.

    Title of the Book:


    "An idea than can change your wife".

    This is something to think about when negative people are doing their best to rain on your parade. So remember this the next time someone who knows nothing and cares less makes your life miserable . . . . .

    A New York woman was at her hairdresser's on Park Avenue getting her hair styled prior to a trip to Rome with her boyfriend. She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who responded, "Rome, why would anyone want to go there? It's crowded dirty and full of Italians. You're crazy to go to Rome. So, how are you getting there?"

    "We're taking Continental," was the reply. "We got a great rate!"

    "Continental?" exclaimed the hairdresser. "That's a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly, and they're always late. So, where are you staying in Rome?"

    "We'll be at this exclusive little place over on Rome's left bank called Teste . . . "

    "Don't go any further. I know that place. Everybody thinks its gonna be something special and exclusive, but it's really a dump, the worst hotel in the city! The rooms are small, the service is surly and they're overpriced. So, whatcha doing when you get there?"

    "We're going to go to see the Vatican and we hope to see the Pope."

    "That's rich," laughed the hairdresser. "You and a million other people trying to see him. He'll look the size of an ant. Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You're going to need it."

    A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo. The hairdresser asked her about her trip to Rome. "It was wonderful," explained the woman. "Not only were we on time in one of Continental's brand new planes, but it was overbooked and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome 28-year-old steward who waited on me hand and foot."

    "The hotel-it was great! They'd just finished a $5 million remodeling job and now it's a jewel, the finest hotel in the city. They, too, were overbooked, so they apologized and gave us their owner's suite at no extra charge!"

    "Well," muttered the hairdresser, "that's all well and good, but I know you didn't get to see the Pope."

    "Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors and if I'd be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me. Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and shook my hand!"

    "I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me."

    "Oh, really! What'd he say?"

    "He said, 'Where'd you get the shitty hairdo?'"

    Ponderism - The Best Fourteen
    Is it good if a vacuum really sucks?

    Why do "tug" boats push their barges?

    Why is the third hand on the watch called the second hand?

    If a word is misspelled In the dictionary, how would we ever know?

    If Webster wrote the first dictionary, where did he find the words?

    Why do we say something is out of whack? What is a whack?

    Why does "slow down" and "slow up" mean the same thing?

    Why does "fat chance" and "slim chance" Mean the same thing?

    Why do we sing "Take me out to the ball game" when we are already there?

    Why are they called "stands" when they are made for sitting?

    Why is it called "after dark" when it really is "after light"?

    Doesn’t "expecting the unexpected" make the unexpected expected?

    Why are a "wise man" and a "wise guy" opposites?

    Why do "overlook" and "oversee" mean opposite things?
