    ppqp...hows you then?I know that feeling about stylists ...theres a good few I know that have not been able to do mine properly ..hope you are well

    hiya pauly ..hows you then?you well ?for me there are too many tommies ...Im not allowed a lot because of the potassium ...mind you I do tend to eat them like candy ..you stay safe xx

    hiya 3.142 recurring ..howz the pup ..how did you get on?..yep its great to wake up without a banging head..you take care .

    hiya Lav how are you ? hope all is well with you ..Interesting your president slagging off a vet on memorial day..He didnt buy a commission in the USMC he did the hard yards to get there ...and for his country ..Trump might not like him ,but he should fkn well respect what the guy did for the country the orange man is supposed to be in charge of .absolute disgrace..its years since I ate goose gogs ...Im the same re plants if I see a bargain ,then Ill have it ..and then find Ive nowhere to put it .. take care

    Hello tee gee ,thinking of you .


    right folks ..stay safe ..

    “Dominic Cummings’ Press Conference went very well”, says Prince Andrew.

    Boris Johnson's unrelenting support of Dominic Cummings shows that he is an honourable man who will not throw his friends and colleagues under the bus, even in the face of fierce criticism...

    Or that Cummings knows stuff about him that doesn't want revealed

    I'd have left my wife for my sister years ago, if they weren't the same person.

    Think about this one ......

    A fat time traveller travels back to ancient Rome, upon arriving he realises straight away he isnt dressed historically accurately for the trip and looks out of place, he finds a small toga shop and begins browsing for something to wear but nothing fits him due to his size!!
    He finds the shop clerk and asks "Do you have XL togas?"
    The clerk replies "Of course, but why do you need so many?"

    Poll: Trump's approval rating continues to fall.

    Translation: America may have developed turd immunity.

    Just to let blind people know...

    Dominic Cummings also LOOKS like a complete asshole as well


    It’s chest and leg day today
    but,
    Will it be down at the gym
    or
    at KFC ?
    af since the fourth of July 2012...howzat then America..now proudly marching into year 5..done that one..now bimbling into year 6..tick ..done that one too..as he casually strolls into numero 7

    Re: May 24th

    Greetings Abbers,

    Woke up to a London style fog here this morning, strange. It cleared out & we took a ride down to Aberdeen (MD) with an empty trailer & came back with a giant load of freshly made (stinky) compost. That my friends was the highlight of my day haha! I love having flowers but really could do without growing all the veggies. We can buy all the produce we want from the local Amish folks, super cheap.
    I tried doing a bit of canning back in the late 80’s, it was just too much work & heated the kitchen up like an extension of hell honestly. Freezing some produce is not bad, just blanch things, then freeze them. I am just not interested in all that slave work anymore haha!

    PQ, I’m with you - do as little as possible then have a nice day. The last thing we need to be doing right now is working ourselves half to death. YB has been know to set up a propane burner out in the driveway to can certain things - all on his own, no involvement from me.

    Pauly, my Mom always told us ‘beggars can’t be choosers’. Is it really that big of a deal when your favorite hair cutter is not available? After seeing videos of people coughing & spitting on store employees I am fully disgusted with the human race. I hope we all get thru this mess in one piece.

    Pie, hope your doggy is doing OK.

    Det, saw your IG pic - nice tomato plant!!!!

    Hello to Sam & sending loving hugs & strength to Cyn

    Have a decent night everyone!

    Re: May 24th

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...riding around with shit, and I thought my daily highlights were the pits. LOL If the Amish lived next door to me I wouldn't be planting veg's either. It's more a physical activity for me, really if nothing grows I don't really care. I don't even have a cool dark place to store my potatoes, it's more like go out and harvest whatever I'm going to cook that night. Does YB actually eat anything that he cans?

    Mick...would have signed in earlier but had a 9am video meeting with boss and prog-coord, another 2 hours of my life wasted only with more frustration having to listen to her. At least it sounds like the boss is ready to commit to buying this new software so hopefully tomorrows meeting will be short and sweet. Sounds like you had an active morning, hope you're not overdoing it.

    Pauly...at least if you check in we know everything is ok. Hoping Det checks in soon.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang, always thinking of you.

    It's a lovely day here today as well so going to go for my walk. Have a good all....PPQP

    Re: May 24th

    Well, it’s nice out now, haha!
    Started with clouds & fog, went to sunny, hot & humid & now it’s a touch chilly outside. Stupid weather.

    Mick, I think you get more work done in a day than I do in a week. I’m generally not that motivated, LOL
    YB just had 10 yards of mulch delivered so I guess he’ll be busy for a week or two. The guy are coming back next week (I think) to pour the new concrete out front. All this outdoor work this spring is definitely making things looks better.

    Pauly, hope your day was good!

    PQ, YB has been known to make & can tomato juice which he does consume. He’s grown & made horseradish & eats a lot of that.
    The reason we go so far to buy compost is because the company is owned & operated by a vet. He told us he wanted to do something good for the earth when he got back from his deployments. He deserves a lot of credit so we don’t buy pre-bagged stuff from the big stores. Besides it’s fun to drive a trailer full of fresh compost & create stink the whole way home, haha!
    As long as you’re getting paid for those video meetings, right?

    Hello to pie, Sam, Det & Cyn.

    Love to everyone,
    Lav

    Re: May 24th

    Mae everybody, Lav good reason to travel for the compost, we tried to do our own but too many damn flies! It was a good way to get rid of the trash tho, PQ, sorry you had to waste another two hours watching the boss fiddle around haha, a week back at work and I'm already burnt out, think I just bitch too much regardless of where I'm at, I annoy myself, I think I'm gonna cut back to only 4 days a week up there, we'll see whenever the other girls get back-if they ever do, much love to all and wishes for a great BF Thursday for us all!

    afternoon all...a scorcher here today!!Julie is working in the dining room ..the rabbits and I are under the sun brolly outside .She went into work yesterday ..was told that she hasnt to come in on a permanent basis until the covid level drops to 2 ,it is currently moving down to 3 now ...Was listening to the news earlier ..they reckon air travel wont get some semblance of normality for 3 years .Another airline has cut their jobs and planes by 30%.I went out this morning about 6 am ...picked the rabbits some dandelions ..not a soul about ,though things are definitely starting to open up a bit..I ll stick to my own guidelines .

    hiya pauly ..you ok girl? hope so. take care of you n yours .

    hya Lav ..hows you then?good I hope ...absolute respect to you for buying the compost from a vet.If his commander in chief cannot appreciate his service ,then its nice for the folk that matter to do so .I know you are a country proud of its armed services and those who served , much more so than us ..we are all brothers and sisters no matter what country we served for .Ive got another ton of golden gravel coming on the 8th to do the front and round the greenhouse...also been doing some work on the railway (again !) take care

    hiya ppqp...you ok?did you enjoy your walk yesterday?how did todays meet go ?all to plan hopefully ..no Im not overdoing it but at the same time not sitting watching telly repeats when I was a lad!

    hiya pie and det ..hope you are both ok

    I've been offered employment at the local colonic irragation clinic.
    I knew something would turn up in the pipeline.

    I've been using a few dating apps recently and I received pics of a d.ck and an asshole last night.

    Why the fck would I want two photos of Piers Morgan?

    I have been thinking about going to an optician to have my eyes checked.

    I was considering Specsavers, but now I decided to visit Barnard Castle instead because it is cheaper.

    Donald Trump will sign executive order to investigate and CLOSE web giants Google, Facebook and Twitter.

    How will he tell us?

    We've been told to stay away from aggressive rats.

    How can we avoid the government at the moment?

    Went into IKEA for the first time since the lockdown. It's similar, but they've altered a couple of things.

    The one-way system has been changed, and Hotel California is playing on endless loop.

    i've tuned in live to Kennedy Space Centre for a rocket launch, to be honest i only did because i thought they said KFC not KSC

    Re: May 24th

    Good evening Abbers!

    Two rain showers so far today & lots of clouds just as predicted. I don’t even want to talk about what this humidity is doiong to my hair, haha!!!

    Pauly, we have done small amounts of compost in our yard but I honestly don’t want to draw anymore wildlife into the yard. We go down to that guys place where they just load up the trailer, put a tarp over it & drive it home. Easy! Cut yourself down to part time & see if you feel better. Working full time was always a heavy load on top of taking care of a house & family.

    Mick, all veterans deserve our respect in my opinion. We have spread the word around about that guys business so others are making the trip too
    The commander in chief doesn’t appreciate anything, let alone veterans. Today he’s been busy trying to gag social media companies, LOL. He has no fu*king clue thinking he can shut them up.

    PQ, hope your day was good. Same to you Pie, Sam & Det!

    Nothing else going on here. Have a nice night all!
    Lav

    Re: May 24th

    MAE ALL...where did the day go!

    Pauly...if you can make it work cutting back your hours is a good idea. I'm getting nervous about my financial future. Even when we open up, around September, I don't think we're going to have the revenue we used to because of all the restrictions. Trying to just stay in the present and things are ok right now.

    Mick...glad you're not overdoing it, and no I don't think you're one to sit around and watch the telly. Hence your garden and railway. Glad Julie doesn't have to go back to work right away. At the end of the meeting today boss said he wanted to start looking at our operations next week. Figuring out what we need to do to start reopening. He said his biggest concern is how to keep his staff safe, especially me as I'm in the high risk category. Just when you figure he's a real shit he says something like that. LOL

    Lav...we're in for a heat wave the rest of the week. Wouldn't you know it as "they" just came out saying not to wear masks during a heat wave. Damned if you and damned if you don't. No wonder people are confused. I just know that I'm going to do what's right for me. Had some work to do after the meeting this morning and the next thing I knew it was 5pm.

    Waves to the rest of the gang, hope all is well with everyone.

    I'm going to head over to the garden just to get out of the house for a bit. Hope we all have a good night....PPQP
