    Re: 25th October

    Good evening friends!

    Cloudy & 61 degrees today, no rain. Rains arrives Thursday & Friday to the tune of 3”, swell. Saturday for the craft fair sunny & only 50 degrees. Guess I’ll wear a few layers

    PQ, in answer to your question, only some states are allowed to start counting before the election. PA is not one of them although I’m sure they have some way of getting around that. Each state sets it’s own voting laws, stupid.
    They approved that unfit justice last night & swore her in - in the dark . The GOP here is hell bent to destroy democracy as we know it for no good reason. It’s sad & depressing.
    Sounds like your boss is about to get his a$$ handed to him, haha!!

    Mick, you did not have a good day yesterday, sorry I hope everything turns out OK for you!
    I know YB will study this drone project thoroughly before jumping in but I think it would be a good thing for him & the local farmers. He wouldn’t need to over-charge people, it would be a side job only, not a major source of income. He needs to stay busy, I need for him to stay busy, haha!!

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

    Guess I’ll get those chickens locked up & go finish some stuff I have started in my sewing room.
    Have a good night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...and here I was complaining about my dryer. What a day you had. Good for you for putting up with the rain and getting the test done. Better safe than sorry. I hope your friends are ok and not experiencing too many symptoms.

    Lav...It was 58 degrees when I woke up and with the little bit of wind we had a lot of the snow has melted already. I hope you get the rain over with before Saturday, layers it is. I keep forgetting how different your politics are from ours. I hadn't heard they'd approved the judge, of course they did it in the dark.

    We're in the middle of our annual audit so the accountant and boss have been stuck in their offices actually working. Haven't a clue what the prog coord is doing and frankly don't care. Haha I spent the day trying to trick the childcare software to do what I want it to do. I'm sure the support people just cringe when they see my emails. LOL Fingers crossed the dryer gets fixed tomorrow.

    Shout out to Pi, Sam, Det, AJ and TG...hope all is well. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Finding a mask in your pocket is the new equivalent of finding a fiver.

    BBC Sport: Scunthorpe matches called off after 8 players test positive for living in Scunthorpe.

    My next door neighbor knocked on my door wearing just a see through negligee, asked to borrow a cup of sugar and then winked at me and asked to come in for a cup of coffee.

    I said . . . " Fck off Dave".

    I wish I could rid the world of buttock pain

    For all arse aches

    If you wear a face mask and gloves while using a computer you have much less chance of catching a virus.

    My grandad predicted that the Titanic would sink and went to great pains to try and alert everyone. Sadly no one would listen.
    He told people in authority, middle-management and even the every-day punters who bought tickets.
    He was silenced from every corner in spite of all the evidence he put forward.
    Eventually he was forcibly removed from the cinema.

    My boss accused me directly of doing absolutely no work and just sitting at my desk, to the degree I'm imminently facing termination.

    Fortunately I saved my position with quick thinking and declared with seriousness that I now identify as a potato.
    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

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...here's your coat. LOL I'm glad your friends aren't suffering and I'm sure you'll be there for anything they need. I think you dodged a bullet there. Yes, things are going pretty good at work these days, knock wood. With the way the whole world is going I'm grateful I still have a job.

    Howdy to everyone else. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Good evening friends!

    The days are going by so fast, what the heck??
    I keep thinking the holidays will be here so fast then remember we are being told not to have any holiday gatherings I really don’t know what to do this year, nothing I guess.
    I have a dental cleaning at 8:30 in the morning & have to drive thru a hurricane to get there & back ~ swell.

    PQ, you’ve got your big melt going on just as predicted, haha! That’s a good thing I guess.
    Hope that dryer is fixed by now

    Mick, awesome on the negative test!
    I worry 24 hours a day about my kids being exposed at their jobs every day. I hope we see the end of this virus sooner than what they are currently predicting.
    Hope you can find something to do to stay out of Julie’s hair, haha! YB is still researching the drone thing but I have a feeling he’ll do it. The grandkids will probably be thrilled, LOL

    Hello Det, you are likely busy.
    Hello Pauly, hope you are good!

    Hello to Pie, Sam & Cyn!

    Have a good night everyone!

    Re: 25th October

    Lav...thought I'd check back and see how your day went. I feel the days are going speeding by too, maybe we all just want to get 2020 over and done with. You be careful driving through that hurricane, I don't know if a cleaning would be worth it for me to do it. It was raining this morning LOL and a little cooler. Just sitting around the freezing mark so a bit of flakes here and there. It would have been a mess out there if temps dropped even a couple more degrees. I too was hoping the dryer would be fixed when I got home from work. But alas, not. The son that was around while the service guy was here isn't around right now. Other son said it sounds like they're just going to give us a new one. When I asked when, he said I think it was a couple of days. So will have to wait till other son comes home to get the whole story. And life goes on.....PPQP

    Real Letter to the Bank
    A 98-year-old American woman wrote this to her bank. The bank manager thought it amusing enough to have it published in the New York Times... but you could just imagine this being published in the London Times also....

    Dear Sir:

    I am writing to thank you for bouncing my check with which I endeavoured to pay my plumber last month.

    By my calculations, three 'nanoseconds' must have elapsed between his presenting the check and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honour it. I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly deposit of my Social Security check, an arrangement that, I admit, has been in place for only eight years.

    You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and also for debiting my account $30 by way of penalty for the inconvenience caused to your bank.

    My thankfulness springs from the manner in which this incident has caused me to rethink my errant financial ways.

    I noticed that whereas I personally attend to your telephone calls and letters, when I try to contact you, I am confronted by the impersonal, overcharging, pre-recorded, faceless entity that your bank has become.

    From now on, I, like you, choose only to deal with a flesh-and-blood person. My mortgage and loan payments will therefore and hereafter no longer be automatic, but will arrive at your bank by check, addressed personally and confidentially to an employee at your bank whom you must nominate.

    Be aware that it is an offence under the Postal Act for any other person to open such an envelope. Please find attached an Application Contact Status that I require your chosen employee to complete.

    I am sorry it runs to eight pages, but in order that I know as much about him or her as your bank knows about me, there is no alternative.

    Please note that a Notary Public must countersign all copies of his or her medical history, and the mandatory details of his/her financial situation (income, debts, assets and liabilities) must be accompanied by documented proof.

    In due course, I will issue your employee with a PIN number that he/she must quote in dealings with me.

    I regret that it cannot be shorter than 28 digits but, again, I have modelled it on the number of button presses required of me to access my account balance on your phone bank service. As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    Let me level the playing field even further. When you call me, press buttons as follows:

    1-- To make an appointment to see me.
    2-- To query a missing payment.
    3-- To transfer the call to my living room in case I am there.
    4-- To transfer the call to my bedroom in case I am sleeping.
    5-- To transfer the call to my toilet in case I am attending to nature.
    6-- To transfer the call to my mobile phone if I am not at home.
    7-- To leave a message on my computer (a password to access my computer is required. A password will be communicated to you at a later date to the Authorized Contact.)
    8-- To return to the main menu and to listen to options 1 through 7.
    9-- To make a general complaint or inquiry, the contact will then be put on hold, pending the attention of my automated answering service.

    While this may, on occasion, involve a lengthy wait uplifting music will play for the duration of the call.

    Regrettably, but again following your example, I must also levy an establishment fee to cove r the setting up of this new arrangement.

    May I wish you a happy, if ever so slightly less prosperous, New Year.

    Your Humble Client

    (Remember: a 98-year-old woman wrote this)

    Two mothers were talking about a third one who had just given birth to triplets.

    "You know, that only happens one in twelve-thousand times?" said the one.

    "Amazing! How did she ever find time to do any housework?"

    Wife to Norm: "What's your excuse for coming home at this time of the night"?

    Norm to wife: "Golfing with friends, my dear".

    Wife to Norm: "What? At 2 a.m"?!

    Norm to wife: "Yes. We used night clubs".

    Someone threw a bottle of Omega 3 pills at me the other day.
    Luckily I escaped with minor super fish oil injuries.



    A clown turned up late for work on his first day and got sacked from the circus.

    He’s suing for funfair dismissal.

    My wife asked me to pass her a lipstick but I accidentally passed her a glue stick.

    She’s still not talking to me!

    Bought myself a universal remote control last night.
    This could change everything!

    What’s one of the best things about living in Sweden?

    The national flag is a big plus.

    It’s really difficult to find what you want on eBay.
    I was searching for cigarette lighters but found over 15,000 matches

    I'm emotionally constipated. I haven't given a shit in days.

    Got an e-mail today from a "bored housewife 33, looking for some action!" I've sent her my ironing, that'll keep her busy.

    I wasn't born with enough middle fingers to let you know how I feel about you.

    A driver is pulled over by a policeman. The police man approaches the driver's door.
    "Is there a problem Officer?"
    The policeman says, "Sir, you were speeding. Can I see your license please?"
    The driver responds, "I'd give it to you but I don't have one."
    "You don't have one?"
    The man responds, "I lost it four times for drink driving."
    The policeman is shocked. "I see. Can I see your vehicle registration papers please?"
    "I'm sorry, I can't do that."
    The policeman says, "Why not?"
    "I stole this car."
    The officer says, "Stole it?"
    The man says, "Yes, and I killed the owner."
    At this point the officer is getting irate. "You what!?"
    "She's in the boot if you want to see."
    The Officer looks at the man and slowly backs away to his car and calls for back up. Within minutes, five police cars show up, surrounding the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half drawn gun.
    The senior officer says "Sir, could you step out of your vehicle please!"
    The man steps out of his vehicle. "Is there a problem sir?"
    "One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner."
    "Murdered the owner?"
    The officer responds, "Yes, could you please open the boot of your car please?"
    The man opens the boot, revealing nothing but an empty boot.
    The officer says, "Is this your car sir?"
    The man says "Yes," and hands over the registration papers.
    The officer, understandably, is quite stunned. "One of my officers claims that you do not have a driving license."
    The man digs in his pocket revealing a wallet and hands it to the officer. The officer opens the wallet and examines the license. He looks quite puzzled. "Thank you sir, one of my officers told me you didn't have a license, stole this car, and murdered the owner."

    The man replies, "I bet you the lying bastard told you I was speeding, too!"

    Re: 25th October

    Greetings friends!

    Had a lot of heavy rain all day but no winds to deal with so getting around was fine. My teeth are clean anyway, haha!
    I’m done crafting so I just have to get things organized & packed up for Saturday. I have to remember to charge my Paypal card reader because almost no one carries cash anymore. Once this weekend is over I have to make some decisions about thanksgiving & Christmas. We’re being told not to gather. I guess I could hand turkey sandwiches & slices of pumpkin pie put the door to my kids & grandkids, LOL

    PQ, your sons sound like my son & husband who were never, ever able to take a message & remember to tell me, geez! I had forgotten about that, I used to get really pissed off with them, Lol
    I hope your dryer shows up soon so you don’t have to resort to using your hair dryer to dry your clothes, haha.

    Mick, I was driving when I heard about that knife attack in Nice, so sad. My daughter & I stood right outside that church back in the spring of ‘95. The world has gone crazy. I hope we can stop this train wreck before we all lose our minds. Hope you didn’t have any damage from the hail last night.

    Hello to Pauly, Det, Sam, Pie, Cyn & Anjicia. I hope everyone is doing well.

    Wishing a nice night for all!

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...hope the hailstorm didn't do any damage. How does the greenhouse hold up with hail? Had a good day at work, managed to trick one of my programs into doing what I want it to. LOL Boss tested his zoom agm meeting with me this afternoon. For someone who's spent all this time learning it he sure had a lot of questions. Not to worry, I straightened him out.

    Lav...glad your travels were uneventful. Fingers crossed there's no rain Saturday. What time will you be handing out the food, maybe I can make it. New dryer is scheduled for Monday delivery. I guess considering everything that's pretty good. I just want it to be done and my living room put back in order.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang, hope all is well with you. Have a good evening all....PPQP
