    MAE ALL....and Happy Mother's Day

    Just starting the thread to get us going.

    Pauly....copied your morning post over to here....

    Mae everybody, Happy Mother's day to the mom's is it the same where you're at Mick? Or do you all celebrate it in a different day? Tired this morning so just a quick hello from me, much love and wishes for a great BF Sunday!

    Although breakfast is being made for me, everyone has disappeared and I'm nervous about the bacon. Gotta go check on it and will be back later.....PPQP

    hiya all how are we today then?its really windy over here it was supposed to rain but it isnt its just really humid ..the temps are supposed to plummet tonight ...great Ive got about 80 odd plants on the go in the greenhouse waiting to go out !the farmer has put his cattle in the top field behind our house Shorthorn cattle tho the horns dont look so short to me!there are also 4 calves Yesterday I watched the deer jumping the field fences ...no trouble at all ..the morning before I saw a barn owl...there are also a pair of nesting goldfinches .and a pair of kestrels .I cant see a direct link between that and the lockdown tho

    thanks for the start up ppqp...hope all is well in Albertasville..how did the breakfast go...well done bacon?

    the possibility of a bigger van looms nearer!the rules for going abroad are not conducive to flying ..firstly isolation in the country you fly to ,secondly no all inclusive holidays ,etc and on the way home 2 weeks isolation at home ...pointless exercise.As I say we have plans but even travelling in uk to sites etc will take time to open them all up .

    A Quarantine Lockdown Day tip to liven up your day

    You will need the following;

    A sheet of newspaper
    A reasonably soft dog poo
    One disposable latex glove
    A box of matches or cigarette lighter.

    Proceed to the house of an obnoxious neighbour (so many to choose from).
    Place dog poo carefully on the doorstep, cover with the newspaper, set fire to the newspaper, ring door bell, do a runner.

    Watch gleefully as neighbour opens door, spots burning newspaper and stamps on it to extinguish it. Try not to laugh out loud as he/she retreats into the house unaware that his/her slipper is trampling dog sh.te through the house.

    Remove latex glove, rinse and repeat.

    Re: May 10th

    It’s a gorgeous Sunday here. Likely not many more of those before the serious heat kicks in. It’s been many weeks since I went out to see my dad. All masked up, of course, but Dad slept through my visit. Not a big deal since conversation is no longer possible.

    Lots of folks out not wearing masks, and oblivious to the directional arrows down store aisles. What are people thinking ? Are people thinking?

    PQ hope you enjoyed breakfast . Such a thoughtful gesture! You have a great memory; this front garden I’m planting is at the new place. Same complex, smaller condo, bigger yard.

    Mick, will look forward to hearing what you figure out in the travel department. A challenge for sure.

    Waves to Pauly, Lav, Sam, Det, TG etal. It feels really good to be back.

    Re: May 10th

    Evening greetings Abbers,

    All sun today & it warmed up to almost 60. Anything is better than freezing at this point haha!!
    Found an open garden center today, needed grass seed & I found a bag of 40 iris bulbs for under $10, nice

    PQ, hope your breakfast was nice & not burned, Lol.
    Give that snow a ‘GO AWAY’ from me, OK?

    Mick, the wildlife sounds a little frenetic in your neighborhood today, haha!
    I can hear the wild turkeys in the woods behind us every evening, strange birds. This is about the time of year that i find those big black snakes in the chicken house - I go out there every day prepared!!!
    I’m kinda glad your politicians are as goofy as ours. I’d hate being the only one dealing with this sh*t LOL

    Pie, we are really glad you’re back too
    So your Dad is still be cared for in his home? That a tough situation, been there & done it too.
    Are you still dog sitting? I think my training is near completed with my dog. She definitely knows the 150 ft boundary around the house but she still impulsively goes after the UPS driver when he pulls up & she gets corrected, ouch. THe UPS driver knows her & throws a dog cookie from the truck, haha!

    Hello Sam, hoped you warmed up a bit today too! We had the fireplace last night to keep from freezing.

    Det, hello to you & hope you are well.

    Pauly, Happy Mother’s day to you.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: May 10th

    MAE ALL...

    Pi...I remember now that you were talking of moving. Sounds like you made the right choice, smaller inside area to keep clean and larger outside area to enjoy.

    Lav...nice score on the iris's. Because of COVID, 2 of my gardeners can't come back this year so myself and another member are going to plant potatoes in both the plots just to hold them for next year. That'll be the extent of my gardening this year. It's a lot easier when I'm at the centre every day for work.

    Sam...hope your day stayed purty, it's overcast here, 30F but there's no snow.

    Mick...most of the snow has gone now, finally. Temps are supposed to improve by the end of the week just in time for the garden opening. I'm telling you, everybody better follow the rules! I watched your prime ministers update and I think I'll pass on the book. LOL The boss has headed off to his cottage in a different province for the week. What a fine example he is. Last time we had major reno's going on at the centre he buggered off then too.

    Went out to get a few items this morning, one of which was 2ltr coke. Son knocked it over when he put it on the counter and then proceeded to open it. It exploded all over the kitchen. I was just thinking the kitchen needs a good wipe down and now I don't have to do it. LOL Have a good day all....PPQP

    Re: May 10th

    Greetings Abbers,

    Chilly today, frost warning again for tonight. Does anyone know WTF is going on?? Such crazy weather almost everywhere
    I have to send the YB out to cover up the strawberry bed again (not my job), Lol
    Made a rather tasty batch of oat flour English muffins this afternoon. I did that primarily to get my mind off of donuts.....have been wanting to make some for a few days.
    Read a good article about chicken cognition today - they are smart, I always thought so .Poultry Cognition—Are Chickens Smart? - Backyard Poultry

    Hi Sam, still chilly here! Guess you have noticed it too.

    Mick, I posted a screen shot On FB of today’s Covid statistics for my state & surrounding states that clearly shows we are not ready to reopen businesses. I’m not going to die of stupid, that’s for sure regardless of what the Washington idiots want. Stay home & stay safe!

    PQ, have fun planting potatoes, don’t freeze your hands off. Glad to hear your son is a good floor & wall mopper, haha!!!

    Hello pauly, what’s up?
    Hello to Pie too.
    Det, where are you these days?

    Just read Cyn’s latest update on her husband who has been on a vent in iCU for the past 2 weeks. They are lightening his sedation & weaning him now, lung function much improved. This is good news but we need to keep sending them our positive thoughts & prayers

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: May 10th

    Lav, yes my Dad still lives with his wife/caregiver. She’s an amazing woman, and I’m very grateful for all that she does.

    I would be open to dog sitting, but since no one is traveling, there’s currently no need. I did take in a new foster dog in December. He seems to have some neuro or muscular issues though that we’ve not yet found a diagnosis for. I’ll be working today to get him appointment with a specialist.

    PQ - if the weather cooperates, maybe the potato planting will be a nice distraction for you.

    Mick - you done reading 50+ pages of Covid instructions and updates yet? Sounds like a good remedy for insomnia.

    Greetings to all the others.

    Re: May 10th

    morning all,
    yesterday started out purty but then the wind was very strong, reminding me I need to get my summer time hair trim!
    Lav, we're still building a fire at night and it is almost mid May!
    Mick, when I was done with the flu this winter, I quit coffee for about a month. I needed to cause like booze I tend to over indulge. Unlike I booze I seem to keep it at a minimum (for now anyway). Definitely better for the blood pressure to not.
    PQ, when is the snow season over for you? actually, when does it begin??
    Pie, everything has come to a halt unfortunately. No good answers but it seems in our area people think it will not affect them, makes me even more nervous.
    Det, how's you been?
    off to work, social distancing in the mountains today!
