    Re: 4TH October

    Good evening Abbers,

    Nice day here to unwind after yesterday’s hectic-ness, haha!!!
    Tried a new recipe today for One pot Moroccan chicken stew with sweet potatoes & couscous - yum Today is YB’s birthday & he didn’t want a cake so he got a big pot of chicken stew, very tasty!

    Mick, I think maybe some bunny needs her jaws wired shut for a while, LOL or maybe she needs a big chew toy!
    Glad you’re getting a trip planned to test your new van, sounds like fun!

    Det, your pic is pretty CRAZY & very colorful, haha!!
    Glad you got out as well. All this staying home is making me fat & lazy & that makes me mad. It’s going to be a long, long time before we see ‘normal’ again.

    PQ, yesterday wasn’t the first time someone handed me an invitation like that. On the one hand it feels nice but I don’t like the thought of possibly pushing another person out of her/his spot. I’m definitely not doing another show next weekend. I need some time to rebuild my stock, haha.

    Hello to Sam, Pie, Pauly & Cyn. Hope everyone is OK.
    Have a nice night all!

    Hiya det nice picture mate hope all is well with you..hope things are good with you
    A big shout out to everyone else Sam pie tree girl etc take care and look after yourselves

    A very flat-chested woman finally decided she needed a bra and set out to the mall in search of one in her size.

    She entered an upscale department store and approached the saleslady in lingerie, "Do you have a size 28AAAA bra"?

    The clerk haughtily replied in the negative, so she left the store and proceeded to another department store where she is rebuffed in much the same manner.

    After a third try at another department store in the mall, she had become disgusted. Leaving the mall, she drove to K-Mart.

    At K-Mart she marched up to the sales clerk, unbuttoned and threw open her blouse, yelling, "Do you have anything for these"?

    The lady looked closely at her and replied, "Have you tried Clearasil"?

    "Get this", said a guy to his friend, "last night, while I was down at the bar with you guys, a burglar broke into my house".

    "Did he get anything", his friend asked?

    "Yeah, a broken jaw, six teeth knocked out, and a pair of broken ribs. The wife thought it was me coming home drunk again".

    A convicted felon was given ten years without parole for his latest crime. After 2 years in jail, he managed to escape. His escape was the lead item on the six o'clock news.

    Because he had to be careful, he worked his way home taking little travelled routes, running across deserted fields and taking every precaution he could think of.

    Eventually he arrived at his house and he rang the bell.

    His wife opened the door and bellowed at him, "You good-for-nothing bum! Where the hell have ya been? You escaped over six hours ago".

    A duded-up city biker walks into a seedy tavern in Sturgis, SD.

    He sits at the bar and notices a grizzled old biker with his arms folded, staring blankly at a full bowl of chili.

    After fifteen minutes of just sitting there staring at it, the newby rider bravely asks the old biker, 'If you ain't gonna eat that, mind if I do"?

    The old veteran of a thousand rides slowly turns his head toward the young pup and says, 'Nah, you go ahead'.

    Eagerly, the guy wearing the shiny new leather fashions reaches over and slides the bowl into his place and starts spooning it in with delight. He gets nearly down to the bottom of the bowl and notices a dead mouse in the chili. The sight was very shocking and he immediately barfed up the chili back into the bowl.


    The old biker quietly says, 'Yep, that's as far as I got, too'.


    The next year, the Wongs have a new baby.

    The nurse brings over a lovely, healthy, bouncy, but definitely a Caucasian, WHITE baby boy.

    'Congratulations,' says the nurse to the new parents. 'Well Mr. Wong, what will you and Mrs. Wong name the baby'?

    The puzzled father looks at his new baby boy and says, 'Well, two Wong's don't make a white, so I think we will name him....


    Are you ready for this?








    Sum Ting Wong


    Grandparents and Kids

    1. She was in the bathroom, putting on her makeup, under the watchful eyes of her young granddaughter, as she'd done many times before. After she applied her lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, "But Gramma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!" I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye..
    .

    2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 62. My grandson was quiet for a moment and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?"


    3. After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was THAT?"

    4. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like: "We used to skate outside on a pond I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods". The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!"

    5. My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and G-d are alike?" I mentally polished my halo and I said, "No, how are we alike?'' "You're both old," he replied.


    6. A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She told him she was writing a story. "What's it about?" he asked. "I don't know," she replied. "I can't read."

    7. I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me and was always correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, "Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some of these, yourself!"


    8. When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, "It's no use Grandpa. Now the mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights."


    9. When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm not sure." "Look in your underwear, Grandpa," he advised, "mine says I'm 4 to 6."

    10. A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today." The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting," she said, "how do you make babies?" "It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'."


    11. Children's Logic: "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said a teacher. The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant." The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. "Don't you know what pregnant means?" she asked. "Sure," said the young boy confidently. 'It means carrying a child."

    12. A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dog's duties. "They use him to keep crowds back," said one child. "No," said another. "He's just for good luck." A third child brought the argument to a close. "They use the dogs," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrants."


    13. A 6-year-old was asked where his grandma lived. "Oh," he said, "she lives at the airport, and when we want her, we just go get her. Then, when we're done having her visit, we take her back to the airport."


    14. Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good good things but I don't get to see him enough to get as smart as him!

    15. My Grandparents are funny, when they bend over; you hear gas leaks and they blame their dog.

    Re: 4TH October

    Greetings folks!

    Quiet day around the homestead, not complaining!
    Attacked my herb garden with a pair of clippers, it hadn’t been thinned out for way too long. It looked like one big blob of a plant, haha! The chickens are always happy to get the cuttings.
    I see there’s 2 more tropical storms approaching the SE coast of the US, crazy.
    Speaking of crazy 45 says he’s leaving the hospital at 6:30 tonight, that’s in 5 minutes. Now he can go re-infect the White House again. What a tool

    Pauly, a night time hayride is fun & 7:30 isn’t that late, Lol
    Yeah, my craft fair sales may be right at the top of the best for me, I was surprised! May have to wait for spring to do another outdoor event though.

    Mick, glad you found another gas bottle. Who would ever think there would be a shortage of them?
    Are you going to have to pay extra $$ for a security team at the hotel for Bonnie? Ha ha!! I hope you have a great trip & get to do all the stuff you want to do.

    Det, I have been enjoying your photos, the food shots are great too! Keep up the great work!

    PQ, how was your day?

    Greetings to Sam, Pie & Cyn!

    Have a good night all!

    Re: 4TH October

    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...I hear you about not wanting to go out at 7:30pm it means you won't get home till after your bedtime. LOL

    Mick...I hope your weather improves for your trip but like you say you're waterproof. And with the extra room in the new van who cares. Just don't be trekking up any hills if it's wet.

    Lav...my day just flew by. Got into the office at 8:30am and didn't leave my desk till 5:00pm. Not only am I still working through the new software now I have to figure out how to trick it to do what I want. Nothing's ever easy. I'm glad you had such a good sale, now you have to come up with a line of Easter masks. For some reason bunnies come to mind. LOL

    Left the office today and it felt like I'd walked into the Twilight Zone. Huge black chinook cloud made it dark and ominous. Time to unwind and get off the computer. Shout out to the rest of the gang. Have a good night all....PPQP

We have been messing about with the van all morning getting the heating working properly and also the hot water finally success after contacting one of my friends who knows a bit more about this than me. Just taken the rabbits down to the Rabbit Hotel we're No Doubt they will have a great time the van is now virtually loaded with everything including the kitchen sink next door's kitchen sink and the guy across the road kitchen sink to haha the weather has been absolutely terrible today

    Good evening Abbers,

    Nice day here, no rain. I think Mick is hogging it all, haha!
    Apparently growing season is not quite over yet around here. YB said he transported 1200 lbs of tomatoes to the auction today, crazy. He said the Amish farmer is praying for a frost so the plants will stop producing, Lol
    Nothing big in my world, a little cleaning, a little cooking & a little gardening (AKA putzing around)!

    PQ, a quick day at work is a good one, always
    I don’t think my brain can handle any new software, geez. It just keeps getting more & more difficult for me. I hope your weather hasn’t turned too nasty!

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

    Have a peaceful night all!

    Re: 4TH October

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...you don't need that many sinks, you're not going for that long. LOL Wow you're really water logged. Hope that dries up before your weather gets cold. How are you on skates?

    Lav...it's not only trying to get the brain wrapped around new software, I tried thinking of the word Grain Elevator and do you think the word Elevator would come to me. Do you know what they are? Saw your craft sale setup on FB, nice selection. Why did it take 3 days to appear in my feed? Stupid FB. You're in trouble now, the Amish have awakened the Frost Gods.

    Had a good day at work today, not as crazy as yesterday but got a lot accomplished. Was feeling pretty good, just starting to pack up, and logged onto FB to check the community page when I saw a post from my son. He commented with "In case anyone needs to see this" It was a repost entitled "Everything is awful and I'm not OK" Questions to ask before giving up." My first thought was Aw Shit! I know somethings been going on with him but he hasn't been easy to engage with. I think the ending of the emergency government benefits meaning he has no income now, has triggered his feelings of uselessness, if that makes any sense to you. I will be keeping a closer eye on him. They have started the repairs on the deck but it's slow going so the house remains stuffed with outdoor items (too bad you can't bbq indoors) and it's just a mess. I'm hoping when the deck is done and we can move all this sh*t out we can get on with replacing all the appliances and putting in a new kitchen floor. I know he will enjoy that, he is an electrical engineer so capable of handling all the hookups. At one point he commented that we can make this place nice again. I know that when I'm depressed, down in the dumps, a messy, cluttered house makes it worse. I knew when I left work today I had to talk to someone about what was going on and I knew who that would be, you. Thanks for listening.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang, hang in there....PPQP
