    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...it all makes sense now!! Thanks for pointing that out, I was wondering. I'll be glad for Nov anyways as what happens in the states greatly effects us. Gotta say I was glad to raise two boys, didn't need the drama of girls.

    Mick...very hot over here today 93! It was overcast this morning and it felt like I'd walked into a Twilight Zone show this morning. Yup, boss was in today and complained that his computer was slow. I felt like saying "Should have run that windows update while you were on holidays" and had to bite my tongue not to respond with boo hoo. Won't have any results until after the MRI which hasn't been scheduled but I will keep you posted. I'll take your green flies and caterpillars over my wasps/hornets any day. All in all though we've had a successful growing season. Hope you get your quote and drive done sooner than later.

    Gman...good to see you stopping in. Glad all is ok in your world.

    Lav...glad the chicks got moved into their "new and improved" abode. I actually had a really good day today. Took my RA injection on Saturday and it's finally kicked in. More energy and less inflammation. Boss actually spent some time talking with me about what's happening with things, I think he's feeling a little sheepish. Won't change my opinion if the board asks. Enjoy your visit tomorrow.

    Det...kiddo drama is bad enough and I'm sure it's been exasperated with this pandemic. Sorry, but it'll probably get worse before it gets better. Remember you can only control your reaction, even if it means walking out and around the block. You'll all get through this. "I'm almost afraid to hold the door for people anymore" LOL Dinner sounds divine, me, ribs and rice.

    Pi... looking for you.

    Have a bridge game scheduled in an hour and am looking forward to it. Have a good night all...PPQP

    Mae everybody, hi Mr. G glad things are going well for you, feel free to stop by anytime Det, I'm sorry for the drama with the daughter again, I'm sure she's got alot of stress with everything too, I think alot of us just aren't ourselves lately, I know I've felt snappier than my usual self, Mick, same here, me and my dad got along terribly when I was a teen! I was mean, he was mean but after I moved out and he divorced my mom we started getting really close, I think my mom made him an asshole tbh, she has that ability haha! PQ, good for you on holding your tongue with your boss haha, yep boys seem to be easier, (except 2 year olds like Rome,he's a grizzly bear!)the only problem is when they go off to get married they're closer to their wives where girls tend to stay close to mom forever,(I should say sometimes) much love to all and wishes for a great BF T-day!

    Top O the tuesday ABeroooos!

    ommm, trying to keep positive in spite of craziness than abounds like encircling madness. Calm on the home-front at the moment.

    Mick, great carpentry and hobby work mate! yeah, part of me wishes I hung onto my travel trailer. the way things are going it could
    have come in handy but alas, she's gone and the RV/trailer market has boomed like never before. People en masse are being evicted and moving
    their lives into them out of desperation.

    I never imagined I'd see our nation with scenes that look like news reports of 3rd world carnage. That poor fellow in Portland that stopped to render aid to a robbery
    victim was rewarded by the thug-activists chasing and beating him. A trans woman tried to step in and they beat her and robbed her, then turned back to the man and
    chased him to his car, beat his female passenger, drug him out and beat him unconscious. Not one damn cop in the area to help. WTF? isn't there a single adult that works
    for the city of Portland to step up? I'm about fully fed-up with what we have become.

    in brighter news I received my Aussie naturalization forms from my dad so I can apply for my Aussie passport and return to being a dual citizen. yay! that's a rare thing to have.
    now I need to sched a trip to the consulate in LA. groan.... not fun but worth it.

    last nights marinara was a hit as well as homemade ceasar salad with super yummy dressing.

    it's time for a meditation. I don't like being upset and must take take of myself, this I know.

    PPQ enjoy the unusual weather! Pauly good luck putting up with that little grizzly bear Lav, hope something fun is happening there.

    be well loves

    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...I'm quite happy to have them closer to their wives than me, my job is done, time to move on.

    Mick...I think you're lucky it's only going to be a fortnight. Love what you did with the piece of wood, so creative. Nice job on the carriage and your ornamental cabbage looks great. Actually I did win at bridge last night but I called it quits early as I was exhausted and couldn't quit yawning. Boss left at noon today, silly me assumed he was going for lunch, he never came back.

    Det...well done on returning to dual citizenship, sorry you have to go to LA to complete it.

    Lav...did you ever post your German Potato Salad recipe? I've been craving it for a couple of days now!

    This heat really gets to me, it just zaps all my energy. Don't know how you guys do it. We installed a google nest doorbell for childcare and I updated all their tablets. Figured that was enough work for today especially since the boss never came back after lunch. Hope you all have a cool evening....PPQP

    Re: 16t of August..its getting closer...we wish you a......

    Greetings all,

    Had a real nice day with my girls, both happy & healthy. My granddaughter is approaching her motherís height already, haha! They grow so damn fast in the summer
    My chicks are happy out in their new place & they are listening to all the chatter from the hens but canít see them yet on the other side of the chicken house, funny.

    Mick, great art work inside & out!!
    Since we apparently have zero control over anything happening this year I guess youíre going to have to be patient for the driveway work. As the infamous 45 said - Ďit is what it isí.

    Pauly, your guy Romeo is going to be a big kid. He already looks like a linebacker, LOL
    I was thinking & remember my daughter settled down when she came to the realization that she liked reading & writing more than anything else. All of the drama ended quickly as she had her nose in a book most of the time.

    PQ, your monthly RA med is not really holding you for the month? Is that what Iím hearing? Time to bring that up with your doc so you donít suffer needlessly.
    Glad to hear the boss has his head pulled partly out of his a$$, Lol

    Det, donít ever let the kid drama push yuo too close to the edge. Just walk away, do it for you!! She will be OK but itís going to be in her time, not anyone elseís.
    Is your family all here in the US or would yuo consider returning to the homeland at some point?

    Not to brag or anything but itís heading down to 64 cool degrees tonight - yay!!! I am so over summer yet I know it will return, it always does.
    Hello to Sam, Pie & Cyn.

    Have a lovely night all!
    Lav

    Mae everybody, you're bragging Lav! Haha, PQ, I think I'm just TOO attached to the kids, I think it's cuz I lacked being a decent mom for those drinking years so maybe subconsciously I've become a"stalker mom" in a way, it's not a good thing cuz they need their own lives instead of me thinking they're still 12 or something and always being up their ass like hubs says, you at least realize that you've raised them and yes they'll eventually move on and be happy I just have a hard time with that cuz of my weirdness, I never meant to offend you by saying the boys won't be close to you of course they'll always love their mama Mick, nice projects, you always keep yourself busy, Det, the police have their hands tied in Portland and in other places when it comes to these protesters, after the police have been in trouble nationwide they're feeling the need to step back a bit, in my opinion all those assholes in the streets need to go home! It's not about black lives anymore, they're just looking to cause a ruckus! Woo-hoo on your dual citizenship, I think alot of people are fleeing Vegas, most lost their job, the casinos are going bankrupt, most of the shows aren't coming back it's probably gonna take the city at least 5 years to recover, meh enough of that depressingo talk, much love to ALL and wishes for a great BF Wednesday!

    Re: 16t of August..its getting closer...we wish you a......

    happy Wednesday ABeroooobies!

    wow, yesterday seemed even hotter with the humidity uptick. PPQ you asked how we do the heat here... well, I really
    don't know. for me it's a struggle.

    fairly calm on the homefront. trial-run of online schooling starts at 7am tomorrow which will be 'interesting'. fingers crossed.

    Pauly, it's sad but true... the local economy is so dependant on tourism and a huge number of our local restaurants and other biz's
    arern't coming back. that means the employees that used to work at these places can't pay rent. That in turn means condo and property
    owners don't get rent checks and they can't prop up the local tax system and our local governments which already run on thin margins themselves
    won't be able to provide basic services let-alone assistance programs. this whole house of cards is coming down and it's only beginning. I'm no doomsdayer
    but it's truly an enormous mess we are all in for. Batton the hatches...going to be mighty bumpy.

    leftovers last night so no big food news. made two killer salad dressings: classic ceasar and a yoghurt/cilantro which are both mega-yummy.

    work is so slow this week I'm again worried. up and down.... so unpredictable. Just one more paying job and it's tomorrow. so meantime I'm setting up
    our wyze cam home security system which is fun for me. very simple plug n play components and cool features.

    i'm doing a charity photo job for the St Jude's Childrens hospital 'dreram home' this Friday if all works out. It's a great outfit and I'm happy to be able to help.

    I better call the Ozzie consulate again and make sure I have all my correct documents and then plan the trip west.

    Pauly, I can fully relate to wanting to be close to your kids and really enjoy them while they are close. How old are they?

    Lav, 64f? that's awesome. glad girls time was nice.

    more coffee for moi and then putzing-about with my projects.

    be well loves!

    Hello and how are we today then? Hope all is well. guess what it is raining over here but things aren't all that bad it's warm rain. Can't stay long I've just been caught out!!!! my lazy day has just changed Julie's phoned me and said she's on the way home .........time to move the ornaments around and spray air freshener about. Every household here got a letter last night saying if things don't change we are going into full lockdown I think the local councils should be made to implement strategies not the national one, that way they can take punitive measures however drastic to stop these idiots.

    Hiya pauly, hope all is well with you too to. you are right this is no longer about black lives matter out here it's a platform and people are actually abusing the real purpose. you take care

    Hiya Det ,how did the school job go? keep your chin up matey re jobs

    Hiya Lav hows you then? it is what it is he said ....what he means it is what it is ..as long as he is the is..if that makes sense..you need to stop your grandaughter standing in manure ...stop growing ..

    hiya ppqp ...you doing ok?hope so ...whats a google nest door bell?


    Big Shout to everyone else I haven't forgotten you apologise for not mentioning you by name but it's no time to pretend I'm Edgar J haha

    My son has a new hobby of collecting calculators. He has managed to get over a hundred within a week.

    It’s incredible how they add up.

    Before our AGM at the Arthritis fellowship, in honour of Black Lives Matter, we all took the Oooh, fckin' hell!!.

    Paddy's boss gave him a tin of green paint, and asked him to go to his house. And paint his porch.
    Paddy came back two hours later with the empty tin, and his boss says "well Paddy. Did you paint my porch like I asked you"?
    He says, "I did yes boss. But it wasn't a porch .it was a Mercedes ".

    Boss “You’ve been employed here for thirteen years, please describe yourself in three words”

    Re: 16t of August..its getting closer...we wish you a......

    Good evening all!

    Pretty nice here after a light rain this morning. This cooling trend is supposed to last all week, hope so anyway.
    My kid chickens are doing fine out in their new place!
    The local school district dropped the bomb last night & said all kids will be doing virtual classes until Nov 2. Same where my granddaughter goes too. Like it or not parents will be full time teachers.
    I’m just concerned about everyone losing their damn minds before this crisis is over!

    Pauly, lots of people around here have been furloughed too including my daughter. She has been able to pick up some per diem hours but not many. I’m hearing so many teachers are afraid that they are taking a leave of absence which is leaving school districts short of elementary school teachers, oh boy.
    Parenting is the hardest job on earth & letting them go out on their own is hard too but necessary. All we can do is the best we can do then set them loose.

    Det, hope some paying jobs pop up for you but doing the charity work is always good. May lead into something else, never really know
    Glad the teen is in quiet mode today, haha.

    Mick, I hope you didn’t get into trouble today, haha!
    I’m beginning to think there’s just no educating some people. If. They don’t want to stay home then maybe they should be introduced to a jail cell for a night or two.

    Hello to PQ, Sam & Cyn.

    Have a nice night all!
