    1st nov

    Good afternoon all how are we then question mark hope all is well with you. As no doubt it is all over the world news Britain is locked down from Wednesday night for another 4 weeks everything is locked down apart from necessities like food shops medical etc this crazy thing is is they have left schools and universities open when they did that the last time that's exactly how the figures started to spike. Haven't a clue as to why they are not locking them down as well well me thinks that is round economics as opposed to health and yet you look at the mindset of some of the little gits and they couldn't really give a toss last night there were mass riots in Wigan Leicester Manchester and quite a few other places as the police try to break up street parties and raves. We were actually going to go away locally next weekend because the weather is lovely looks like we are going to camp on the drive haha full stop went to texting this morning hello came home about 2:30 found a couple of Roman bronzes a cut quarter from the mediaeval period of 1327 and a silver thimble. Just got a message from my friend has got covid him and his wife have just managed to start taking fluids so for all these idiots that think it is a nothing they want to give their heads a shake take care everyone look after yourselves

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...was just going to start the thread and there you were. Already back from detecting, sounds like you found a few treasures. Hopefully the lockdown will allow people to have Christmas. Our numbers are rising, they've reduced the number of people you can gather with but I don't know how effective that will be. At the rate things are going I see a lockdown in our future too. It sounds like your friends may be on the mend and hopefully over the worst of it. Camping in the driveway, at least you have a TV to watch. Thoughts of work are creeping into my mind but I'm determined not to do any work today.

    Hope everyone has a relaxing Sunday....PPQP

    Mae all -

    Mick, congrats on the "texting" finds! That sounds really impressive... a thimble too - any idea what century? Sorry you can't get out and about... time for a good game of cribbage? Thanks for your support through your notes - much appreciated.

    PPQ, I hope you were able to actually take the whole day off... interesting that you actually know what day of the week it is! Canada has so far a beacon of hope for keeping the virus in bounds... I'll be sorry if you have to sequester... maybe the spike is from the Thanksgiving holiday? It's so hard to keep ourselves apart on a holiday...

    Pauly, adorable picks of you and the kids on FB... I think it must be your favorite holiday? You always look beautiful, even with a costume on!

    Lav, wow how much work you did for your event... how did it go? I would like to pick 3 book pillows... I'll see if I can tell which ones from the photos. Hope grandsons and all are well, and that you and YB are escaping this. I had a rainy drive through the northern part of your state... sorry I couldn't drop down... but I could only have waved at you anyway!

    Det, are you around? Truly sorry that I haven't kept up; looking forward to hearing all about what you and others are doing.

    Sam, are you safe in the south? Mud season?

    Sorry to any I have forgotten...

    Well, We (dog and I) did the second cross-country trip, for anyone that does not know. It went well - so relieved that it is done, and just before the bad weather everywhere. Bad news is that I went through (and stayed overnight in) every spiking Covid state. So I am sequestering now for 2 weeks... better safe than thinking that I might have given this terrible thing to anyone... I did get a negative covid test the day before I left, but of course that's only good for that day... hoping that all is well...

    Breathe, everyone - we miss the light, it it will return... hang in there... ��❤️

    Re: 1st nov

    Greetings friends!

    Clouds & rain for us today, oh well. Glad yesterday was clear & dry!
    I have already heard from a few folks who were at the craft show yesterday. They are planning Christmas gifts so I guess I’ll be busy for the time being & that’s not bad!

    Cyn, I am so happy you are back & safe! I am also happy you have such a wonderful traveling companion
    Family is all healthy so far so I’m happy. Send me a message about who you want pillows for & I’ll find the right designs for you. Stay safe & rest up after all that driving!!!

    PQ, I hope your day off was a good one!!
    Looks like we are warming up to the 60’s Wednesday thru the end of the week. Sounds good to me.

    Mick, Glad you had a successful detecting day. More items to add to your personal museum
    I am expecting another lockdown here as well with so many new cases daily. People don’t seem to have a lot of common sense & don’t seem to care about all going on, sad.

    Hellos to Pauly, Sam, Det, Pie & Anjicia.

    Feeling somewhat anxious about the election on Tuesday. I just want it to be over & pray that we can find (Relative) peace again.
    Have a good night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Up early so I thought I'd jump on now. Dryer to be delivered between 8am and 12pm with a 1 hour phone call notice. So could get the call as early as 7am and I want to be nowhere near here when they come!

    TG...so good to see your post and glad you're home safe and sound. I did manage to take all of yesterday off. LOL Yes, they figure the spike is from Thanksgiving, what is Christmas going to bring!

    Lav...sounds like the craft sale effort was worth it. We're warming up till Thursday where we'll get overnight cold and snow. Go figure as it's Friday I take the car in for the new tires. At least I'll be able to drive home feeling safe. I think there are a lot of people feeling anxious about the election.

    I've got a new project to start today and am looking forward to it. It's one of those I call having fun. Hope everyone has a great day....PPQP

    X-Post Pauly....have a great day.

    I said to my wife, "The kids haven't eaten their sandwiches."

    "Don't worry," she said, "just throw them out."

    I opened the front door and said, "Mom says you two have to fck off."

    Paddy phones the hotel's reception desk and says, "Room 168, could ye please send someone over roit away, I'm having argument wid der woife and she's said she's gonna jump out der window." The concierge replies, "I'm sorry sir, but we cannot intervene, this seems to be a personal issue." "Now ye listen to me ye little bollox," yells Paddy, ". . . der fecking window is jammed shut, it's a maintenance issue!"

    I've found the secret to wealth. Just follow these three simple rules.

    1. Know how to rob people.

    2. Want to rob people.

    3. Have no qualms about robbing people.

    I guess I'll never be wealthy then. Or a politician.

    I'm not saying my girlfriend's thick.

    But she thinks TikTok is the sound a cuckoo makes.

    Prince Andrew's spokesman said he never met her, he was at Pizza Express.

    Ahoy ABeroooos!

    I'm ok, just insanely busy lately making a deadline for a new online marketing thingy which I barely made in time. whew!

    let's see, new dryers, tires, nonsensical lockdowns being protested, Roman treasure... what a mixed bag. Hope all are doing
    self-care practices to bolster for the craziness ahead. I think 2021 could be worse in many respects as the unfathomable economic
    effects of the world's locked-down economies starts to become felt. Not being a doomsdayer but just calling at it seems. We must
    be strong!

    I'd certainly love to get us out of Vegas and have been poking around online to more quiet/sane respits. not sure yet... ack..

    we did sneak out to have some Halloween fun at Area 15 which is a neat sci-fi themed place..not even sure what to call it exactly but we had a
    nice break and the 3 of us costumed-up and did it in style

    just yesterday I got 10 pieces hung in my new gallery display. yay! getting there!

    PIC: Shared album - London Lewis - Google Photos

    I'd better call/text some friends in recovery and make sure they are hanging in there ok with all the stress that abounds. heck, I could
    use the connections too. It's not a fun time but by jove it's going to get better eventually.

    ok, off to my one photoshoot today....

    be well loves

    Re: 1st nov

    Good Election day eve everyone!

    I’m so glad I got my vote in early & do not have to face people tomorrow. I live in a very red area with the wankers driving around with huge tRump flags on their trucks, yuck.
    My two Biden?Harris yard signs are still intact, no one shot them or tried to take them so there’s that, haha!!

    Pauly, we will all breathe a collective sigh of relief after tomorrow. There may or may not be tears involved but at least it will be over
    Yep, people are looking for baby gifts & Christmas gifts already & that’s OK with me. I like to be busy in my workshop then I have an excuse for not cleaning, haha!
    My daughter is working this evening & said her FB friends are claiming the supermarkets are mobbed tonight. They’re worrying about civil unrest in her town which is the county seat

    PQ, so how’s that brand new dryer?
    I hope your day went well. We are really chilly here but looking at 70 degrees later in the week, crazy.

    Mick, glad to hear your friend is showing some improvement. We can do without food for quite a while but we need to stay hydrated to keep the body cooler & for other normal processes.
    My daughter texted me from work this evening & said her friends are telling her the stores are being overrun with panic shoppers. They live in a town that is the county seat & are worried about civil unrest tomorrow related to the election. She said they were seeing Trump parades thru town today, noisy & stupid.

    Det, your work is just awesome & I wish you a ton of luck
    I don’t know where to go to find a more peaceful place to live & work. I think we’re OK down in cow country except for the occasional wanker driving by with his giant tRump flag waving from his pickup truck, haha!

    Hello to Cyn, hope you are staying well!

    Hello Sam, Pie & Anjicia.

    I have put a major request out to the universe for a peaceful election day & hopefully see the end of the current autocracy in Washington. There’s alway hope!!!

    Have a good night all!

    Re: 1st nov

    Hi Mick...I actually hadn't thought about the garbage pickup and panic buying before your lockdown. Hope you got what you needed. Dryer turned up and the boys have been banned till I can about all the new fangled settings and do a test run. The project was for childcare. When the kids come back from the school the staff has to go through a set of Daily Health Check questions and our Health Services changed the list effective today. They had been working off a table in a word document that someone had created for them. I recreated/updated their questionnaire into a spreadsheet and formatted it to fit on one page. Reputative work that I didn't have to think about so was a great way to waste the day. LOL

    Det...good to see your post and I figured you were just really busy. Wow, your pics in your new gallery display look great! Best of luck for some good sales. However I was hoping to see one of you and the girls in costume. LOL Good on you for reaching out to others to make sure they're ok. Sometimes a quick text is all that's need to keep one focused on the goal.
