    Re: July 19th

    Happy Tuesday ABerooooskies!

    Mick, condolences on your loss. quite time is perfectly good here and there, that's for sure.

    Lav, I feel you... 108 again here today and I'm pretty droopy. Going to force myself to run to the gym here shortly anyway. grunt!

    PPQ, sorry about the trying day. things are going to get much more trying or so it seems... heard on NPR yesterday that Las Vegas will be looking at
    at least 100,000 evictions being sent out at the end of this month. holy crap! this is going to be an absolutely insane mess for a very long time. I suppose
    all we can do is set a good example by being sane, healthy, and kind to one another.

    Pauly, keep the IG pics coming...great stuff! biz is slow at the hair shop? I can only imagine. Every day entire retail chain stores and many more independent biz's are
    closing for good. I've never seen the likes of it.

    I'm worried about my sister who lives in Seattle as the violence in the streets is getting closer to where she lives and she's afraid and doesn't know what to do.
    worry won't do me a bit of good but it still comes. sigh..

    ok, I'll cheer up after the gym and then making gazpacho and shrimp with barley and red bell peppers.

    be well loves!

    Lav, forgot to say... yes my 'artistic' work is pretty psychedelic for sure and certainly isn't for all tastes.
    it's maybe my way of balancing out the very structured way that architectural photography is done.
    it's all good fun for me thankfully.

    Re: July 19th

    Greetings friends,

    Temp hit 95 as usual but now it’s dropped to 84 because there’s a storm on the way, yay!!
    Getting tired of standing outside watering plants & sweating like a real oinker Lol

    Pauly, I think I’m about ready for another haircut if you want to make a house call
    I imagine a lot of folks are stretching their dollars in these current conditions.

    Mick, glad today is better for you!
    I grated Up over 2 lbs of zucchini & made fritters for dinner, yum! The veggies are coming in fast & furious but 2 people can only eat so much. I share as much as possible.

    PQ, nothing like other people taking over your day, geez. You’ve heard of the ‘Resting bitch face’? Plant that on the next time someone approaches & see if they don’t change their minds about bothering. You, haha!

    Det, you have pics to please just about everyone. I love looking at the animal portraits & others will certainly be digging the psychedelic mind blowing photos
    Gyms are just starting to reopen around here but I won’t be going, LOL

    Hello to Pie, Sam & Cyn!

    Take care everyone & have a good night!

    Re: July 19th

    Mae everybody, I'm sure you all probably forgot that I had posted awhile back that the owner raised the price from $8 to $13! Of course it's slow! Nothing I can do about it, he just picked a dumb time with all the uncertainty going on,plus people are still scared of catching covid, Mick, it's good to be alone in your thoughts sometimes, especially when someone passes to just remember them and times together, Det, yes it's been warm and I think a tad humid nothing like Lavs but fir us even 10% makes a difference, shop is on Maryland and Flamingo, you know how shitty that area is, low income and lots of sketchy peeps, my owner was outta his mind to try and polish that turd shop, anyhoo hope everyone has a great BF Wednesday
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"
    Drinkin won't help a damn thing! Will only make me sick for DAYS and that ugly, spacey dumb feeling-no thanks!

    Interesting Appraisal Review Letter by Hr


    Dear Manager (HR),

    Vimal, my assistant programmer, can always be found

    hard at work in his cubicle. Vimal works independently, without

    wasting company time talking to colleagues. Vimal never

    thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and he always

    finishes given assignments on time. Often Vimal takes extended

    measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping coffee

    breaks. Vimal is a dedicated individual who has absolutely no

    vanity in spite of his high accomplishments and profound

    knowledge in his field. I firmly believe that Vimal can be

    classed as a high-calibre employee, the type which cannot be

    dispensed with. Consequently, I duly recommend that Vimal be

    promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be

    sent away as soon as possible.

    Signed – Project Leader


    NB:

    That stupid idiot was reading over my shoulder when I wrote the report sent to you earlier today. Kindly read only the odd lines (1, 3, 5, 7, 9,11, 13) for my true assessment of him.


    The Good Fairy Godmother and the Yellow Toad

    So, there's this yellow toad wandering around in the forest, kind of pissed off because he doesn't want to be yellow. Life would be easier if he was brown or green like the other toads. He'd sure be less visible to predators for one thing.

    Any way ... this yellow toad bumps into a Fairy Godmother, like you do, and he begs her; "Fairy Godmother please make me green like the other toads. I am tired of being so visible to predators and such."

    The Fairy Godmother whips out her magic wand and says "Abracapokus! You're green."

    The toad looks down and sees that he is green except for his package, which is still yellow.

    He says to the Fairy Godmother "Wait a minute; my meat & two veg are still yellow."

    To this the Fairy Godmother said, "I don't do willies, go and see the Wizard Of Oz for that.

    The toad thanks her and hops off on his way.

    There also happens to be a purple bear wandering around in the very same forest, must be one of them enchanted forests and he encounters the very same Fairy Godmother.

    He implores her; "Fairy Godmother, please make me brown like the other bears. None of the lady bears want to be seen with me on account of the hunters can spot me from a mile off."

    She being a nice Fairy Godmother, takes out her magic wand and says, "You're brown."

    The bear looks down and sees that he is, in fact, brown with the exception of the old twig and berries, they remain purple.

    He says, "What about my wedding tackle, they're still purple!

    She says, "I don't do genitals, you will have to see the Wizard of Oz for that."

    To this the bear replies, "Well that's just dandy but how do I find the Wizard of Oz?"

    The Fairy Godmother answers; "That's easy, just follow the yellow prick toad."

    While dressing a cut on the hand of a 75-year-old rancher, whose hand had been caught in the gate while working his cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Trump, and his being our president.

    The old rancher said, "Well, ya know, Trump is just a Post Turtle".

    Now not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked, "What's a 'Post Turtle'"?

    The old rancher said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle".

    The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. "You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he sure as heck ain't goin' anywhere and you just wonder what kind of simple minded idiot put him up there in the first place".

    Re: July 19th

    MAE ALL...

    Det...WOW, 100,000 evictions! Where is everyone going to go? Yes, I think people are now feeling "caution fatigue". I can see it when I'm out and about, which isn't often. The patiently waiting for their turn, staying 6ft apart and being polite has turned into "F" you and butting in wherever. The city announced they're going to make mask wearing indoor all public places mandatory starting Aug 1st. They can start it now as far as I'm concerned. Some people are saying they'll simply drive to the next town to do their shopping, I hope they do. I hope your sister stays safe and I know I'd be worrying too.

    Lav...did you get your storm? What a catch 22, melt in the heat or hope the storm doesn't do too much damage. You're fritters sounded great, I think even I could do that one. LOL I've never heard of the "Resting Bitch Face". Will have to give it a go. LOL Did manage to get childcare sorted out today so onto the new software. Asked the prog-coord when she wanted to get together and apparently she's busy until the first week of August. Makes no never mind to me if the programs don't get set up. Will email her to set a meeting date and time so I have documentation when the boss says why isn't this done.

    Pauly...I remember you saying the owner was going to raise the prices but didn't realize it would be that much. Have no idea where the shop is located, I do know Flamingo though. I'm sure the rent was cheap enough for him. Hope things turn around for you soon, don't give up your delivery job just in case.

    Mick...you should just record those cleaning, polishing and tidying up noises then you can take it easy with a book and just play them. The garden is looking lovely. I'm only helping with the potato patch and you can pretty much just let it do it's thing. LOL Gotta say it's been good to get up and go into work, starting to get a bit of a routine going. As long as I can avoid the contractors I can concentrate on one thing at a time. Refuse to setup my phone, the recorded message instructs people to use email, and that'll work for now. No bridge on the schedule at the moment. May have to find a couple of other players to set up a weekly game.

    Shout out to Sam, Pi and TG.

    It's Kraft dinner and hot dogs for supper tonight so no prep work required. LOL Have a good evening all....PPQP

    Re: July 19th

    Greetings friends!

    Thunder storm with RAIN going on right now. It’s about time, haha!!
    Way too hot out to do anything outside today so I made a big dish of vegan mac & cheese & baked a loaf of sourdough bread with some spelt for extra flavor, yum. YB harvested green beans today so I steamed up some of them, yum. I think we’ll be eating ourselves to real obesity if this keeps up Lol

    Pauly, when you nearly double the price on something of course people are going to balk. Don’t think that was a smart move on his part, sorry.
    The temp has dropped 25 degrees since the storm started. Wish some of this humidity would disappear too, ho hum.

    Mick, rain again? That’s why your tomatoes aren’t getting red, uh oh!
    Reheated some zucchini fritters for lunch, they were good! I love living on leftovers

    PQ, you raised two boys so it’s likely you never heard of resting Bitch Face. My daughter was always good at filling me in on current trends, haha!
    Here’s a piece from the WP on the topic: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...ng-bitch-face/
    You should practice RBF so you’re prepared to deal with the prog-coord

    Hello to Det, Sam, Pie & Cyn! Hope everyone is oK.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: July 19th

    whew! sweaty greetings ABErooooooos!

    just in from 5 shoots today. 347 pics total! now I have to sort them all out. weeeeeee!
    Mick, I'm not selling prints, I'm doing commercial photography of properties and homes people are selling as well as custom
    interior shots for custom carpenters etc. it's pretty neat for the most part. I suck at advertising my artwork but am in the middle of a
    digital marketing course so perhaps I can get that into gear also.

    Pauly, my hair place charges me 29 bucks a pop before tip. I'll have to find you! send me a message here or on IG direct messenger if you like and
    let me know your schedule so I'm there when you are. I promise not to eat a crapload of garlic just prior

    Lav, you're rich with veggies! that's too cool. My poor tomatoes are toast. they did great for a bit but I just can't save them from the death-rays that fall
    from above. The sun here is super intense. It should be illegal! yeah! storm? I thought we were getting one the other day but nooooo storm for us
    poor frying bastards.

    PPQ, I have no bloody idea what is going to become of 100K suddenly displaced persons here. That on top of no more stimulus money and people are about ready to
    kill each other for menial minimum-wage jobs. Extremely bad times are ahead kids. Nobody has answers. Kraft dinner? oh my! ok, I won't get all food-snobby. we are
    having breakfast for dinner so certainly nothing super gourmet tonight. Last night's Cajun shrimp/barley/red bell pepper with a Greek side salad was a hit.

    Did I mention my sweetie bought me a very nice Italian panini pan? it's super cool. Made by Lagustina. I'll have to take some pics since I'm such a food dork.

    Oy Mick, glad yer at least getting some rain while getting all those things done. Anything fun on the books for the weekend?

    otay, sorting pics, then shower

    be well loves!

    Re: July 19th

    Mae everybody, PQ, I love Kraft Mac and cheese, the key for me is to open one extra box and toss the macaroni but use the extra packet of cheese in the pot, also I only cook the mac"Al dente" so the extra cheese floats on it instead of soaking in it and getting soggy, hah! See Det even no food snobs have certain techniques to things haha! I ordered my own instacart yesterday from a store I don't like to go to but I love their stuff, my shopper needs to get lessons from me, she ignores some of my requests, didn't knock and when the app told me my stuff was outside it looked like she threw it and left! I NEVER leave people's things like that I always stack it nicely, Kell said to give her a bad review but I don't wanna be that guy cuz A. She took it when it was late in the day B. It was feckin hot C. She got most of my stuff, Kell is thinking of ways to break the news to Lou there's no school in person, he keeps asking everyday when he's going back, I told her to just put him off for a bit, they're taking a trip to our hometown this weekend, I don't think it's wise just cuz covid(we're from a very small town) the drive, etc but she wants to get outta here for a bit, I've considered it myself but although I'm not paranoid, I still don't want to expose my family to anything that I don't know for sure I don't have if that makes sense? I'm just so done with this virus! I posted a video on FB yesterday of this couple who were trying to act like they were soooooo picked on for not wearing a mask in a restaurant, I was pissed cuz all they have you do is wear it to enter, go to your table and take it off once there=simple! No these people kept going on and on about health problems and the mask, the manager asked if she at least had a face shield, offered them a to go order, etc he wasn't even rude yet they tried to make him into a villain, irritating, anyhoo I've gone on haha, hope everyone has a great BF Thursday!
