    Re: 13th September

    Ahoy ABerooos!

    one shoot down, two to go, just popped home for a quick bite.

    Lav, yes Italy strikes my fancy for some reason and always have so I need to at least visit and get a feel for the place...someday! ack.
    so glad you've got the cool weather. Cranking back up to 100 here.

    Mick, thanks much and I'll gladly take you up on some tourist advice.

    Pauly, it's sad that our politics is just as messed up as everything else is this year and it's hard to keep my chin up at times that's for sure.
    I'm now just trying to look upon it with some kind of twisted humor. surely from a nation of 330 million we can do a whole lot better than this
    but I digress. This is going to be one hell of a New Year's Eve party I'm guessing and I'll be staying away from downtown as usual.

    Sam, maybe a guy wearing a bunny as a mask would be our Mick.. hmmm.

    Just read the new bombshell report from defected Chinese scientist Li-Meng Yan and wow... be interesting to see what precipitates now.

    won't be home til about 4:30, then gym and something for dinner... dunno what yet but it needs to be simple and fast. Any ideas?
    I'll be doing a Persian shirazi salad for sure as that's become a family fav.

    otay, back off to the races

    be well loves

    Re: 13th September

    Greetings Abbers,

    Completely dark at 7:30 pm, no evening walks for me anymore. Iíll have to get myself & the dog out in the mornings!! Chilly here but I love that

    Sam, I think that probably wasnít Mick. Heís more likely to wear a rabbit mask, haha!!!
    Any more coyote sounds?

    Pauly, speaking of animal allergies, I got a rabbit when I was in high school & came home from school one day to find my dad had gotten rid of him. I never forgave or forgot that so years later I got one for my kids. Thatís when I found out I developed an allergy to rabbits, uh oh. It happens!
    #45 is in Philly tonight & thereís a huge protest planned, haha.

    Mick, keep those plans for the garden in your head until next spring. Too late now for this year I think.
    We drove to the place that makes our chicken feed today & came home with 250 pounds!!! They should be good for a while, Lol

    Hello to Det, PQ, Pie & Cyn.

    Have a nice night all. I still havenít closed up the chicken house yet, better get moving.
    Have a good night all!

    Re: 13th September

    morning all,
    dang, it's almost chilly out, 46ļ (F).
    Lav, still have coyotes sounding off, but not as bad.
    Mick, I'm all for our "leader" to quit/lose his job ASAP! I'm not sure I can endure another 4 years of all this winning.

    spoke with my brother who lives out near Seattle, he did a video chat with his phone and walked outside, the smoke was pretty bad. What a disaster for so many people.

    waves to you Det, Pauly, PQ, PI, TG!

    Re: 13th September

    Mae everybody, Sam, my daughter is by Portland and their skies are smokey too very scary. Mick, at least you get to be at the funeral to pay your respects, a few months ago it wouldn't have been able to happen, Lav, yep I think we develop allergies as we go along, look how when we were kids and could eat cheese and drink milk without a second thought, now no, not that it's a food allergy but I think a sensitivity toward it is pretty close to an allergy, Det, you sound busy and that's good slept so odd last night, like that weird sleep where you can't tell if you're asleep cuz you're still aware of everything, meh sick of sleep issues, it's not every night but still it blows! PQ, hope things are going smoothly, much love to the gang and wishes for 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!

    IMG-20200915-WA0000.jpg

    yep ..Bonnie at work ..and like any good scrounger ..in my bag of come in handys I had a piece of cabling that I could make another cable with .she is currently in rabbit prison.awaiting sentence

    hiya Pauly ,how you then?ok I hope..No I can go to the funeral ,the covid regs in Scotland only allow 20 people to attend ..plus Im in a lockdown area too.His family are doing a live lin kof the service .I m going for a walk with my friend who also knew him,over the moors .Keep your chin up .

    hiya Sam ...hope all is well with you mate .hows things on the family side ..hope its sorted out

    hiya Lav ...you sound like Julie ...it can wait till next year..Im thinking more of when the flowers die back..9 days and I pick the van up..looking forward to it Never mind rabbit mask ..I ll be wearing a bloody rabbit hat!!!

    hiya ppqp ..hope all is well with you .

    I asked my Scottish girlfriend to rate my listening skills.. She said you’re an 8 on a scale of 10…why she wanted me to urinate on a skeleton I'll never know!

    It's kind of understandable how Donald Trump can stand there and tell us that global warming is a myth.

    After all, he doesn't live on the same planet as the rest of us.

    The earth is moving at 1,000 miles per hour!
    I don't know about you, but I think we need more police in space.

    I jumped in the shower this morning.

    After working up a sweat, I turned the water on.

    "Sir, why are you drinking on the floor?" asked the cafe waiter.
    "This is ground coffee," I replied.

    I can't believe how upset my wife got when I told her I am considering starting to keep a bear as a pet.

    She said she wasn't worried about her safety, just "competition" at the fridge.

    KETTLE Lives Matter!
    After generations of abuse, kettles finally speak out over vile and racist treatment by pots.

    Ever heard of a Shakespearean omelette?
    You only add ham,

    It's called a Hamlet

    On the news, I saw a 59-year-old woman living in a van because she can not get a house. She needs to get on a ferry to France, burn her passport, and come back in a dingy.

    Matt Hancock was visiting an old people’s home as a publicity stunt to show how sympathetic he was to the covid problem in the elderly.

    He went up to an old lady in a wheelchair and said “ Do you know who I am?”

    “No” she said “ but if you ask the nurse on the front desk she will tell you “

    A journalist is interviewing David Beckham about Inter Miami.

    "David - there are some ridiculous transfer rumours flying around, how do you respond to them?"

    Beckham sighs and says, "They're not ridiculous transfers, they're real tattoos."
    af since the fourth of July 2012...howzat then America..now proudly marching into year 5..done that one..now bimbling into year 6..tick ..done that one too..as he casually strolls into numero 7

    Re: 13th September

    MAE ALL...

    Det...I had a look at what a "Persian shirazi salad" is and it looks great unfortunately I just can't eat cucumbers anymore. Hope you got your gym visit in. What else did you have with the salad?

    Lav...I can't believe how late it stays dark in the mornings. So did you and the dog get out this morning for your walk? I was disappointed to hear #45 survived his visit to Philly. LOL I bet the people at the place that sells your chicken feed just smiles when they see you coming.

    Sam...this is the first day we haven't had smoke in Calgary from the fires. I just can't imagine what it's like in Seattle. We've had cooler temps here too and I'm all for that.

    Pauly...I've been told that you can develop an allergy at any stage of your life. At least you have a place to start trying to figure things out.

    Mick...my internet was very wonky yesterday, hence the no post. "she is currently in rabbit prison.awaiting sentence" LOL I even googled some rabbits in prison images but couldn't find one that looked like Bonnie. Of course you had some cabling in your bag. I think it's lovely that you and your friend will walk the moors, you'll have lots of memories to share.

    Shout out to Pi and TG...

    Got a call from the doc this afternoon and you were right Lav, the mass is a calcium cyst, so nothing to panic over. Can now get that off my mind. Had a day of sitting on the phone on hold. What a waste of time. Did manage to get through and fix the two issues I had so I figured I should leave on a high note, and I did. LOL Hope we all have restful sleeps tonight....PPQP

    Re: 13th September

    Greetings Abbers!

    Det, I think we cross posted yesterday. Saw your pictures on FB today, awesome!! Doing a bit of charity work is good for the soul, you’ll get blessings. I am currently mask making for our hospital because they asked nicely Hope today was a good one for you!

    Sam, I’m enjoying the chill, haha! This summer was freaking awful here on the east coast. Hope your brother is OK in the smokey PNW. My brother & his family are in the Sacramento area & said it’s been pretty bad. YB found a small owl sitting on top of the chicken’s outside water can last night right after I closed them up for the night, weird.

    Pauly, I had the same shitty sleep last night, awake more than asleep for absolutely no reason.
    Allergies & food intolerances are different but both are annoying. I’ve stayed on 2 Zyrtec/day as the allergist suggested & I haven’t had any skin reactions to anything BUT my stupid nose still runs constantly, haha!

    Mick, I had to laugh at the rabbit prison remark but I completely understand
    We love our pets & sometimes we want to strangle them, haha!!
    Sorry you can’t attend your friend’s funeral, such an extra harsh year for all of us. Once all the flowers are gone & the grass has turned winter brown I’ll start missing all the lush greenery too. I’m just so happy to be done with the excessive heat & humidity!

    PQ, yes we got our walk in this morning. The horses weren’t there to greet us as usual, I guess they had other plans, Lol
    All the TV stations including CNN reported Trump told 22 lies during the town hall meeting. He got his lunch handed to him by a local professor in the Philly area too. She was in the midst of askingn her question when her interrupted her & she told him to stop talking haha!!! Then he responded to her with a lie about health care insurance. Can’t wait until he’s in prison!
    Good news about your CT scan, that’s a relief & I’m happy for you!

    Hello to Pie & Cyn.

    Have a nice night all!

    hiya Det how are things with you now mate? hope all is well with you mate.

    big shout to everyone else ..

    Murphy's Laws
    Never have sex with a stranger unless you are stranger than them.

    Abstain from wine, women, and song; mostly song.

    Never argue with a women when she's tired -- or rested.

    A woman never forgets the men she could have had; a man, the women he couldn't.

    It is better to be looked over than overlooked.

    Don't say no, say maybe, say any old thing, say come back in the spring but don't say no.

    A man can be happy with any woman as long as he doesn't love her.

    Folks playing leapfrog must complete all jumps.

    Beauty is skin deep; ugly goes right to the bone.

    Sex is one of the nine reasons for reincarnation; the other eight are unimportant.

    A sexy woman went up to the bar in a quiet rural pub...She gestured alluringly to the bartender who approached her immediately. Seductively signalled that he should bring his face closer to hers.

    As he did, she gently caressed his full beard. "Are you the manager?"

    She asked, softly stroking his face with both hands. "Actually, no," he replied.

    "Can you get him for me? I need to speak to him?

    " She said, running her hands beyond his beard and into his hair.

    "I'm afraid I can't," breathed the bartender. Is there anything I can do?"

    "Yes. I need for you to give him a message," she continued, running her forefinger across the bartender's lips and slyly popping a couple of her fingers into his mouth and allowing him to suck them gently.

    "What should I tell him?" the bartender managed to say.

    "Tell him," she whispered, " there's no toilet paper, hand soap, or paper towels in the ladies room

    There's a man with a bald head and a wooden leg who gets invited to a Halloween party. He doesn't know what costume to wear to hide his head and his leg so he writes to a costume company to explain his problem. A few days later he received a parcel with the following note:

    Dear Sir:
    Please find enclosed a pirate's outfit. The spotted handkerchief will cover your bald head and, with your wooden leg, you will be just right as a pirate.
    Very truly yours,
    Acme Costume Co.

    The man thinks this is terrible because they have just emphasized his wooden leg and so he writes a letter of complaint. A week passes and he receives another parcel and a note, which says:

    Dear Sir:
    Please find enclosed a monk's habit. The long robe will cover your wooden leg and, with your bald head, you will really look the part.
    Very truly yours,
    Acme Costume Co.

    Now the man is really annoyed since they have gone from emphasizing his wooden leg to emphasizing his bald head so he writes the company another nasty letter of complaint. The next day he received a small parcel and a note which read:

    Dear Sir:
    Please find enclosed a bottle of molasses. Pour the molasses over your bald head, stick your wooden leg up your butt and go as a caramel apple.
    Very truly yours,
    Acme Costume Co

    Real Notes to British Milkmen
    Dear milkman I've just had a baby, please leave another one.

    Please leave an extra pint of paralysed milk.

    Cancel one pint after the day after today.

    Please don't leave any more milk. All they do is drink it.

    Milkman, please close the gate behind you because the birds keep pecking the tops off the milk.

    Milkman, please could I have a loaf but not bread today.

    Please cancel milk. I have nothing coming into the house but two sons on the dole.

    Sorry not to have paid your bill before, but my wife had a baby and I've been carrying it around in my pocket for weeks.

    Sorry about yesterday's note. I didn't mean one egg and a dozen pints, but the other way round.

    When you leave my milk knock on my bedroom window and wake me because I want you to give me a hand to turn the mattress.

    Please knock. My TV's broken down and I missed last night's Coronation Street. If you saw it, will you tell me what happened over a cup of tea.

    My daughter says she wants a milkshake. Do you do it before you deliver or do I have to shake the bottle ?

    Please send me a form for cheap milk, for I have a baby two months old and did not know about it until a neighbour told me.

    Please send me details about cheap milk as I am stagnant.

    Milk is needed for the baby. Father is unable to supply it.

    From now on please leave two pints every other day and one pint on the days in between, except Wednesdays and Saturdays when I don't want any milk.

    My back door is open. Please put milk in 'fridge, get money out of cup in drawer and leave change on kitchen table in pence, because we want to play bingo tonight.

    Please leave no milk today. When I say today, I mean tomorrow, for I wrote this note yesterday.

    When you leave the milk please put the coal on the boiler, let dog out and put newspaper inside the screen door. P.S. Don't leave any milk.

    No milk. Please do not leave milk at No. 14 either as he is dead until further notice.

    Re: 13th September

    Mae everybody, Mick, I'm sorry I assumed you'd be able to go to the funeral, at least you can watch it if you choose, yep bunnies and cords!!! When I had Dr. Chocolate all those years ago I went thru soooooooo many phone chargers! Lav, all he does is lie! He seems kinda "over it" so I wonder why he's even running again, seems like he accomplished his goal of being a president but he just seems to have checked out if you get my drift, PQ, glad it's nothing serious! I was hoping it would be nothing, stupid amazon fired Brady cuz when he took time off for his wreck they had scheduling issues cuz he needed a doctor's release and by the time he got it they said he missed too many days, makes no sense! He'll be ok hopefully find something less stressy, much love to all and wishes for a great BF Thursday!

    Re: 13th September

    Happy Thursday ABerooooonies!

    Mick, I guess bunnies don't make the best IT personnel... drat. Hope you get the cable sorted soon.

    PPQ, that's a relief on the cyst! whew. more than ever being healthy is a darn good idea I'd say.

    politics has come up on the thread again I see but I'll opt for some popcorn for now. I'm so incredibly disappointed by our
    political theater from left to right and wonder where the middle ground went... that's where I'll be waiting.

    yes, I'm busy alright! truly a blessing so long as I can manage my stress levels adequately. Had a HUGE crazy house out right next
    to the Red Rock mountains which was really cool. Especially doing the drone footage. I'll see if I can grab some of those shots to share.

    still smokey here... ack! but not as bad. I'll be doing 3 big jobs today including being mobile cameraman for an agent that's doing a zoom
    meeting presentation. That should be interesting.

    Pauly, are you doing food delivery? I can't remember. darn brain!

    Sam, always good to see you pop in.

    my Dad called yesterday complaining about the insane new levels of lockdown that Hawaii has foisted upon its citizenry. A report
    made their news lately when a married couple was pulled over and cited/fined for being in the same car together which is now
    illegal. WTF? a married couple? you can now only drive solo there with no exceptions. You can only go to the beach if you are solo
    and wearing a mask. on the freaking beach in the direct sun.... somebody pinch me....Im having a bad dream about a dystopian nightmare.
    I'm really wondering if we will ever return to that thing we call 'normal'. I suppose like everyone else I'm just watching in morbid fascination
    as this unfolds. Seems that EU nations with very restrictive quarantine measures are seeing spikes in infections.

    I hope at least we can all stay as healthy and happy as possible. Remember your vit D3 and C.

    Refuge meeting tonight which is good. I may have to run directly from my last job to attend it but we'll see how it goes.

    oh, with the shirazi salad we had some simple but very good wagyu beef burgers. nothing fancy for busy-dude.

    that's my ramble for the morn.... more coffee is in order and I'm off.

    keep a careful eye on those rabbits....

    be well loves!
