    Re: august 9th...its nearly Christmas

    Mae everybody, Mick haha, love the jokes PQ, bored kids or not that's just ridiculous! People are either being super pissy thru this or super nice, I was at the grocery store doing a job and the clerks all acted like they had raging yeast infections they were so bitchy! Wanna try to avoid that store for a bit but it's the one closest to my house, grrrr, just seems like everyone is so impatient and feeling like they're entitled, took the day off the salon to do things around here, got a stack of dishes in the sink and just walls that need to be wiped, things I always wanna get to but don't, Det, we don't really go anywhere just kind of homebodies, I don't want to go to casinos or anything right now anyways, I'm not super scared I'll catch the 'rona but I'm not gonna expose myself more than I already do, Lav, like you I'm unmotivated when I don't sleep! I almost feel nuts the next day, ugh the worst. Pie, sounds like things are good with you, never got into the Handmaid's take and we used to tease Lb for watching it just cuz from a glance it looks boring but I heard it's great, much love to all and wishes for a great BF Tuesday!
    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!

    Ack, Pauly! Raging yeast infections! OMG I can’t stop laughing! You are too dang funny.

    Lav, there is an upside to our hellish heat which is the glorious Crape Myrtle trees. They bloom for around 6 months in various shades of pink, purple, red and white. Will attempt to attach a pic of the one I planted in front garden 2 years ago. Aside from its beauty, the shade is priceless.

    Mick, I’m generally winning the booze battle. I did almost 3 months completely AF to break the daily drinking routine that I’d fallen back into. Currently I’m about 85%, and heading in the right direction. Seems like I may have lost the ability to physically process alcohol like I used to. Anymore, even small amounts leave me sick the next day. Or maybe it’s hangovers that I no longer have a tolerance for? Either way, thank you for asking.

    PQ, I’ve always liked the dystopian genre, and read Handmaid’s Tale when the book first came out. Still, reading googled episode summaries is highly illuminating .

    Re: august 9th...its nearly Christmas

    Greetings friends,

    Still hot & humid but change is on the way. Severe storms & flooding called for tomorrow, Lol
    Got a chance to visit with my daughter & granddaughter for a while today while YB had a fire house meeting. It was nice to catch up with them & have lunch.
    We stopped at Costco on the way home. I passed on the new snack offering of egg coated fish skins - GROSS, haha! Who the hell thinks up this stuff??

    PQ, put that boss to work & get caught up on your bridge games!
    Hope today was a good one.

    Pauly, people are getting more rude, I have noticed that. Just this weekend there was an incident at a children’s play park North of Philly called Sesame Place. When the 17 yr old worker asked a man & woman to put a mask on (second time) they both punched him out so badly he had to have surgery on his jaw & teeth today. The police are tracking their asses down as we speak. They were seen on video leaving in a car with NY plates. Poor kid was just trying to make some money for college.

    Pie, I remember when you planted your Crape Myrtle, it looks awesome! Apparently the hot dry weather is perfect for them
    I know at the end of my drinking career I was not processing AL either. I had to battle my stupid ego & convince myself I would be much better off without & I certainly was!!! Think about setting a complete quit date & work your way up to meeting the goal. I did that & it worked well.

    Mick, I am SO happy that our soon to be president has chosen a woman as his VP running mate! She smart, she’s strong & she takes no sh*t!!!!! I can’t wait to hear her in a debate with the current boot licking tool of a VP, haha. She’ll clean up the floor with him.

    Det, you are busy so I’ll just say HI!

    Hello to Sam & Pie and anyone dropping by.

    Have a nice night all!

    Mae everybody, Pie that's beautiful! Ugh my body just can't process alcohol either anymore I learned that when I had my covid blues drinkfest in March and I was just SO sick from it,I think I threw up the first couple of drinks but still was wanting to get drunk-makes no sense,great job on your 85% hey all we can do is work on it,Lav,I tell you I'm astounded by these people lately! I think I told you guys about the old man getting punched out right by my work? Anyway they caught that little bastard,I read in some comments on Facebook that it was racist but I think it was just assholeism,nothing to do with race,I hope they catch those people who punched that poor boy much love to you all and wishes for a great BF Wednesday!

    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...aren't you glad you're not dealing with any of that anymore? Assholeism...I like that, same thing has inflicted many here.

    Pi...love the tree, it's huge. Looks like a very peaceful place to sit and relax. I like Lav's idea of picking a complete quit date.

    Lav...it was a crazy day yesterday and I ended up tuning everything/one out early. Finally got into my follow up ultra sound on the mass they discovered on my kidney last September. Not really looking forward to hearing the news on that. Cornered the boss today and got him to do what I needed done. Will pop in tomorrow to update the website then I'm out of there and taking Friday off.

    Mick...curious you like the Dell over the HP. I have not had good luck with Dell's. Well at least you have a back up now. Two more implants, you be careful how you chew. I saw that Bronze Age hoard on the news and wondered if you had seen it, yup you put the link up before I could. I have a bridge game scheduled for tonight and am really looking forward to it.

    Shout out to Det, Sam and TG.

    Worked through lunch so am off to find something to eat. Hope you all have a good night....PPQP

    good for you Pie ...stay safe everyone

    oh boy ..how many of you knew this one then..........

    Boris Johnson
    Johnson was born on 19 June 1964 in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York City,[6][7] to 23-year-old Stanley Johnson, an Englishman, then studying economics at Columbia University,[8] and his 22-year-old wife of one year Charlotte Fawcett,[9] an Oxford-born artist from a family of liberal intellectuals, and a daughter of Sir James Fawcett, a barrister. Boris's parents had married in 1963 before moving to the US,[10] where they lived opposite the Chelsea Hotel.[11] In September 1964, they returned to England,

    so ....dear readers ...technically that means that he could run for president ...he still holds dual citizenship...not that I hope or indeed wish he would .....

    Re: august 9th...its nearly Christmas

    Good evening all,

    Oh Mick, for shit’s sake please do NOT send BJ back here, boo hoo. We have plenty of idiots right now, don’t need any more.
    I hope your rain storm cooled things off for you. We had another inch of rain today & it’s currently 73 degrees at 7 pm. Rain total for the month so far is 8.5” - too much!

    PQ, sounds like you got quite a bit accomplished yesterday at work, good for you!
    Sometimes those things on the kidney are just cysts & don’t need immediate attention. Hope that’s all you got there.
    I have to agree with the Dell from hell laptops we’ve had, haha!! HP seems quite a bit better ~ usually.

    Pauly, I’m glad they caught up with the little creep. Hope the police in NY catch up with that couple who hurt that kid. I get so angry when I think about someone hurting a teenager especially whenhe was doing his job & the right thing.

    I think I was a little less restless last night but I’m still dragging this old body today. Can’t wait for the real cool weather because I always come alive, Lol
    Hello to Det, Pie, Sam & Cyn.

    Let’s all have a decent night!

    Re: august 9th...its nearly Christmas

    morning all,
    Lav, we're getting the rain today. Probably coming your way just in case you're drying out.
    PQ & Mick, not sure about model of computer but I've had my share of problems with windows 10, namely with printer drivers and video card updates. It messes with my survey program every time it updates. oh yes please Mr. BJ right where he is. I saw a Rump yard sign yesterday which totally depicts this area: "GOD GUNS COUNTRY & tRump" Everyone here has drunk the koolaide.
    Pi, good on you for keeping on. I had gone about 2 years without a drink and then didn't. It took me 5 years to come back to being sober, that's when I joined here. I think I drank harder than ever after my 2 year stint and seemed to beat me up worse than ever. As we get older, I think the booze really affects the hangover us more, like being sick seems to be more pronounced. (not saying you're old or anything!)
    Pauly, assholeism is running rampant in the this country. Maybe there'll be a vaccine for that too, nah......

    been slugging through locating the river portion of this farm, about 4000' of frontage. Back in the late 1800's there was a road that ran along the side of it. Parts of it are still pretty evident. I was able to wade out in it to get shots but not after Wednesday night. Water level went up dramatically. Looks like a good day to get caught up inside.

    hope everyone is well.
