    MAE ALL...

    Sorry for MIA but I've been extremely busy the past few days. Just like I predicted everything hit at once, last minute. Boss actually came in at 2:30 wanting me to write up a COVID staff procedure complete with mandatory health questionnaire and he needs it right away so he can send it out as everyone is supposed to start back to work tomorrow. Geeze, I was just planning on heading out for lunch. LOL

    Lav...thanks for kicking off this weeks thread. The last couple of days I don't know if I'm coming or going, getting things thrown at me from every direction, and when I do get home I'm exhausted. Hopefully things will settle down after tomorrow.

    Mick...it's been ages since you've been able to get out detecting. "only managed to walk across them for about 6 hours" and you say "only"! I'm sure it's the history that keeps you detecting, it certainly isn't the money. Forgot about your driveway...hope the weather holds out for you. Boy, you upgrade one vehicle and now you want to upgrade them all.

    Shout out to the rest of the crew....PPQP

    Re: August 30!!

    mornin all 6.20am how re we ? just havin a quick brew before the madness of the day starts..at least its dry out there.Certainly autumnal.My friend has just come back from the Isle of Skye in his camper van ...loved it .

    hiya Lav ...hows you with the noo happy haircut? all good?it was hard going ..heres the state the field was in !!I took a vid and screenshotted it

    Screenshot_20200901-062928_Gallery.jpg


    enjoyed it tho ..hopefully a lot more when the ground settles ..

    hiya everyone else ..hope you are ok

    There’s one place that I just can’t stand.

    My local ice rink.

    “I usually meet my girlfriend at 12:59 because I like that one-to-one time.”

    A guy walked into a bar. As he was ordering his first drink, he looked around and saw a guy down the end of the bar falling off his stool. He said to himself, "Aw, man, this is disgusting, somebody oughta do something."

    He walked over and said, "Hey buddy, let me give you a ride home." He picked the drunk up and dragged him to the door of the bar. He had to prop the guy up against the wall to open the door, but the guy fell down!

    When he got the guy out to his car, he propped him up against the car to get out his keys, and the guy fell down again!

    Soon they were on their way. He asked the drunk where he lived, and the drunk pointed to a house. He parked and helped the drunk out of the car.

    He dragged him up the steps, and propped him up against the railing so he could ring the bell. Again, the guy fell down!

    Finally the drunk's wife came to the door. "Look, lady, I brought your husband home for you."

    She says, "Well, that's very nice of you, young man, but where's his wheelchair?"

    A salesman, tired of his job, gave it up to become a policeman. Several months later, a friend asked him how he liked his new role.

    "Well," he replied, "the pay is good and the hours aren't bad, but what I like best is that the customer is always wrong."

    A little girl was playing in the garden when she spotted two spiders mating.

    "Daddy, what are those two spiders doing?" she asked.

    "They're mating," her father replied.

    "What do you call the spider on top, Daddy?"

    "That's a daddy longlegs," her father answered.

    "So, the other one is a mommy longlegs?" the girl asked.

    "No," her father replied. "Both of them are daddy longlegs."

    The little girl thought about it for a moment then took her foot and stamped them flat. "Well, we're not having any of THAT in OUR garden."

    There was a little boy who had just learned to count on his fingers. One day his uncle came to visit and the boy was anxious to show off his newly acquired skill. He told the uncle to ask him and addition question.

    So they uncle asked, "What is three plus four?" The little boy counts it out on his fingers and said, "Seven." The uncle said, "Listen kid, you cant count it out on your hands because someday when you are in school, a teacher will get mad at you for it.

    Now put your hands in your pockets." So the little boy put his hands in his pockets and his uncle asked, "What is five plus five?"

    The uncle saw movement in the boys pockets, then the boy said, "Eleven."

    A father is asked by his friend, "Has your son decided what he wants to be when he grows up?"

    "Yes, he wants to be a garbage collector," replied the boy's father.

    His friend thought for a moment and responded, "That's a strange ambition to have for a career."

    "Well," said the boy's father, "he thinks that garbage collectors only work on Tuesdays!"

    MAE ALL...

    Morning Mick...I wonder if I said to my boss "You're such a Richard Cranium" if he'd get it. I wouldn't till I googled it. LOL That's exactly how I felt when he asked me to do it though. Yup, got the Staff COVID procedures done and he sent it out last night. Still need to set up for contractors though. Speaking of contractors, good luck with the driveway today. I can tell you one thing, I wouldn't want to be walking around that field for 6 hours, can just feel my calves burning!! Hope you have a good, productive day.

    Morning to the rest of the gang.....PPQP

    Re: August 30!!

    Good evening Abbers,

    Had another damp & dark day but it was cool so I won’t complain, much
    Rode all over southern Lancaster County today so YB could find an Amish hydraulics shop. They make large propane burners to be used outside & he needs to replace the old one. Always an intersting trip to these shops. YB does all his messy tomato juice coooking & canning out in his garage. I refuse to let him use the kitchen cause he can’t clean up after himself haha!

    PQ, I’ll have to come up with a special design for a mask for your boss ~ let me think about that, LOL
    Sorry they have you working so hard but it does make the week go by quickly.

    Mick, I was imagining turned ankles walking thru that field, geez! I’m not all that steady on my feet on a flat surface if you know what I mean.
    Yep, I am happy with my haircut, it’s short & not frizzy in all this damp weather!!
    I hope th edriveway project goes well.

    Hello to Det, Pie, Pauly, Sam & Cyn!

    Have a nice night all!
    Lav

    Re: August 30!!

    Mick...wow, hadn't heard about that. That would be a big blow to more than just Medicine Hat. Hope it doesn't happen.

    Lav...I remember a joke Mick once posted about the asshole being the boss of the body. Something like that. Do you remember Mick? I'm sure I could find it again. Maybe something in that joke would work. LOL Accomplished all that had to be done so am ready for contractors coming into the building. Maybe we'll finally get the building restoration finished. I think the boss is procrastinating because then he'd actually have to come up with a plan for rentals and programs. Every other community association in the city has launched their fall programs! So did YB find the hydraulics shop? Don't give in, don't let him in the kitchen.

    Thinking of the rest of the gang not posting at this time. I feel it's because we're all busy, enduring coviditis and just putting one foot in front of the other. If it's because you're struggling, have "slipped" or don't know which way is up, please post. You're chairs are getting cold but we've sanitized them for you.

    All in all, first day of school went better than expected. They're doing staggered entry so only had about 1/3 of the kids we'd normally have. That worked out well as we were able to work out any kinks in the plans. Couple of issues with the online contactless drop off but it was more user error than program error. Had a call from my Dr who said she couldn't get me in for an MRI until February and said that was just not good enough. She is going to book me in for a CT scan instead. Although I had about 8 of them while I was in the hospital she said this is a different type of one. So she put the request in and now I just have to wait to see when that gets scheduled. Have a good night all....PPQP

    evening all
    I have a real bad falling out with one my children (both in their 30's). I'm not in a good place but remain sober. After reading PQ's post I know I need to check in more often
