    hope everyone is doing well..covid round here is still on the rise so its stay safe time

    I cant help but think wed be speaking German if the Nazis used rubber dinghies.

    Britain is utterly defenceless against them .

    I looked up from my crossword and asked "what does 'campanology' mean?"

    "Doesn't ring any bells," frowned my girlfriend.

    Question: at what point in a relationship is it acceptable to openly break wind?
    I'm in a cab with my blind date and she's not looking too impressed.

    I used to go out with an independent MP. That was no party.
    So I went out with a mountain climber. That soon peaked and was all downhill from there.
    So I went out with an horologist but I had to watch myself all the time.
    Then I went out with a fortune teller, but I couldn't see any future in it.
    So I went out with a siamese twin, but she acted like we were joined at the hip.
    Then I went out with a police cadet. She had arresting good looks but was really jailbait.
    Anyway, I ended up with an accountant. Figures.

    I see Meghan's new home has a guest house for her mother.

    Meanwhile, her father is still in the doghouse.

    If you drive for an hour in the UK not only do the accent's change so do the customs and cultures. You could even cross into another country.

    If you drive for an hour in the United States...

    You are still behind a fat git on a mobility scooter inside Walmart.

    Mae everybody, I tried to post yesterday but when I hit it, it said did you want to leave this page? So I dunno what happened, Lav, yep definitely covidiots! Alot of people just don't want to follow the guidelines, hubs is pissing me off with his not wanting to wear a mask, the way he smokes cigarettes you'd figure he'd be scared of the virus, Det, hope you found something fun to do, I haven't gone bowling in ages, we used to go to Sam's town but seem like I always got sick there for some reason, a cold or something I think their ventilation is bad, haven't been doing hardly any grocery deliveries cuz my car has no air, the Honda Brady wrecked did but that's gone, PQ, we'll see what happens with your boss haha, much love to the gang and wishes for a great BF Sunday!
    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!

    morning all,
    Pauly, blame your inability to post on the post office, pretty tomatoes, Mick. I've canning salsa using up ours.

    not much happening, be glad when Nov. rolls around. It's going to be an ugly one.

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...thanks for kicking the week off for us. Checked out the Elddis Accordio 125 online, I like the looks of it. Any luck with the guy who came by to see your van yesterday? Our lumber industry is booming over here, stores can't keep up as everyone has become DIY experts. Was at the garden this morning, my tomatoes are nowhere near where yours are. But at least I have some.

    Pauly...your hubs and my son. His standard rant is it's a free country and I don't have to wear a mask. He has asked me for a mask if he's going to a friends place who have children or perhaps they've told him not to come without one. Of course it would be the car with A/C that got totaled. Don't blame you for easing off on the grocery deliveries.

    Sam...I'll be glad when Nov rolls around too. With my luck this will be the year we actually get an Indian Summer. Oh...am I allowed to say that anymore?

    Lav...hope you have a/c in the car and that the day goes ok for you. Did manage to dig up some potatoes but it appears the wasps/hornets (not sure which) are back. I think this is the year we'll have to dig up that plot and get rid of the hive for good. It's the wicking bed plot that had a rubber reservoir for water in it. I think it was the wasps/hornets that destroyed it.

    Det...hope the shoot went good for you and that you didn't have to be out in the heat for long. Did you end up going bowling? I always enjoyed that sport.

    Pi...how are thing going with you? How's the dog doing?

    Today's the day to clean out the fridge so must get at it. Have a Super Sober Sunday all....PPQP

    Greetings Abbers,

    We got back home around 6:15 this evening. 2 1/2 hrs each way in the rain, yuck. The service & lunch after went well but I think they exceeded the 25 person limit that gatherings in NJ require. What can yuo do in these instances?

    Mick, this just may be a very good time for tradesmen. People stuck & home & suddenly wanting to make improvements!
    Your tomatoes look very nice, good job!

    Pauly, buy your husband some nicotine replacements (lozenges or gum or patch) & get him to get rid of the smokes! We all need the best lung function we can get to help us survive the virus should we get infected.

    Sam, I am waiting for November too & not extremely patient either, haha!

    PQ, sounds like your garden has had more than kit’s fair share of troubles, sorry!
    Glad today is over with & my grandsons & DIL managed very well considering everything.

    Det, saw you post on last week’s thread.
    Don’t focus on the 14 yr old, they’re all a pain in the ass but they do outgrow it, believe it or not.
    Stay calm, focus on your biz, everything will be OK!

    Hello to pie & Cyn.

    Have a nice night all!

Waves to the gang and wishes for a great BF Monday (feels like a Monday)

    Hello and how are we this afternoon then? Hope all is well well very hot over here again today day cloudy humid think there's another storm on the way not a lot happening over here today, the virustotal of positive still increases over here so they are looking at putting in more lockdown measures that is until suddenly somebody realised the latest positives are two weeks old!
    Hiya pauly how are you today then hope all is well with you. Yes the elections will be interesting over there I wonder what effect it will have on us over here Boris being Donald's whipping boy. All I can say about smoking is I'm really glad I gave it up each To Their Own. Take care
    Hiya lav and how are you today then question mark hope all is well with you too I'm still waiting for the qt from the guy that came the other day so it's now to quartz I'm waiting for the certainly don't rush tradespeople do they. for me getting the drive done is the priority move before we can do anything and we have already seen a van so we'll see what happens. I've had to dig up and replant my ornamental cabbages as they were absolutely covered in Little green fly between that and the caterpillars from the cabbage white butterflies on the kale still not exactly third world country problems are they. You take care

    Hiya ppqp and how are you today then question mark hope all is well with you. What is the latest with your boss did he put an appearance in today? Does the fire doors Saga still go on when do you get your result now ? How were the Gardens doing ?

    Hiya det how are you mate? Hope all is well well don't get too vexed about the antics of a 14-year old teenager I know it's difficult believe me I've been there Amy holds possibly the most famous or infamous bearing in mind which way you want to look at it the only person who has ever gone nose to nose with me me so close and not been head-butted we never really got onto well but we are very very close now so never give up or think it's it's not worth it

    Big shout out to everyone else take care look after yourself

    Greetings Abbers,

    Not real hot today & we just had a big downpour, currently 66 degrees, not bad!
    Got the baby chicks moved into their newly refurbished quarters in the chicken house a few hours ago. YB made it snake & mouse proof, nice haha!! I live with too much ‘nature’ around here LOL
    Daughter & granddaughter coming for a visit tomorrow, looking forward to that

    Pauly, looking back on raising both of my kids I can honestly say I didn’t know if I was going to get thru it alive. They are genetically programmed to work your last nerve. BUT, now that it’s long over & done with i can honestly say I’m glad I didn’t kill them when they were really asking for it, haha! They have both turned into decent adults so I did OK.

    Det, see above LOL
    Hope things are better today!!!!

    Mick, we got the rain without the excess heat for a change. I guess it all went to the west coast.
    I guess getting your name on the tradespeople’s list is about as fast as you can go right now. Learning to be patient during this pandemic has been a big deal! I hope you can get what you want sooner rather than later.

    Hey G, good to see yuohere!

    Hello to PQ, hope your day was fabulous!

    Hello to PIe, Sam & Cyn!

    Have a nice night all!

    Heya ABerooooodles near and far!

    no bowling. kiddo drama which almost ended up with me called youth parole but thankfully de-escalated just barely short of that. arg! this stresses me the hell out,
    she's such a little dumbass and her mum is so sweet. ommmm ommmm. Darlene and I ended up spending a romantic hour or so at... Walmart. oh well. things are a bit
    calmer now at least.

    Mick, I guess they don't have those vans over here, or at least not by the name. sounds very cool and useful. And what cracking tomatoes you've grown!

    Felt a bit weird asking at the store to buy just one of the little airline sized bottles of cabernet (not the 4 pack) but by jove I want tonight's marinara sauce to be killer, and
    by the smell it's going to be. Will have that with red lentil gluten-free penne rigate. and other stuff.... hmmm. salad I think .

    Lav, at least you made it safely all that way in the rain. Hopefully we'll go a good while before more funeral services.

    Sam, yes November is going to be a clown-storm combined with a sh*t-show for sure. I'm glad we're in a lower populated part of the city... I fear things
    are going to get rather ugly indeed.

    PPQ you norty person... prolly no Indian references are ok from what I can tell. I'm almost afraid to hold the door for people anymore... I'm lost in my own land. sigh.

    Yay! Nevada broke a heat record (why did I say yay?) Death valley yesterday recorded 130F which is the hottest measurement on the planet since 1913.
    And it's supposed to be 113+ here tomorrow. egad.

    Guitarista! howzit mate? tomayyto tomawwto... we'll figure it out.

    Pauly, sorry to hear about the lost post. and the AC! mine isn't working right so when I can save up enough I really need to have it looked at.

    anyone see the meteor showers recently? they were too late for me to enjoy.

    off to stir my sauce and get ready for trip to the gym, then home for oink-out.

    be well loves
