    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...sounds like a good plan you taking the grandpuppy, you'll just have to figure out what to do with him when the g/kids visit. I'm sure you'll work it out. Our covid numbers are getting out of control and the boss asked the childcare director if she had a way of contacting all parents if we go into a lockdown. The Alberta Dr's want the government to shutdown for 2 weeks, they are calling it a Circuit breaker. It is a stat holiday tomorrow so we'll see what happens come Thursday.

    Mick...I am feeling much better today, thanks. The discovery of the possible vaccine is a big thing over here too. Regardless of when the vaccine is approved it still has to be approved by Canada Health Services. There are a lot of drugs that don't pass their test. At least it's a flicker of light at the end of the tunnel. Been out in the garden...I couldn't even see my garden today. Good job on booking Chatsworth House especially with only 6 places left. You may not want to publish your poems but I bet Lav could embroider a wall hanging with one of them. Food for thought?

    Lav...I'm sorry about the weather too, but hey, I got my new tires. LOL Yup, it snowed all night and all day but the temp was sitting around 32F so not bitterly cold like the weekend. Thanks for the virtual hug, I'm feeling better. I've decided to call these episodes Mick Hiccup's as we both seem to experience them. LOL. What do you think of a wall hanging? Some of Mick's poems are profound!

    We've had a week of above seasonal temps with no snow and when does my son decide to travel to Saskatchewan? In the middle of a blizzard! He hooked up his 5th wheel, loaded it with 2 ATV's and a Bronco and headed east today. I decided to turn my worry switch off. He just texted me "Almost there. Fun trip!" I'm not even going to ask.

    Shout out to everyone else and have a good night all....PPQP

Lav, I dunno what the holidays will look like this year, it's only us anyways but I better get my turkey before everyone hoards them! As long as I get my stuffing and mashed potatoes and gravy I'll be happy much love to all and wishes for a great BF Wednesday

    Re: November 8, 2020

    Hello how are you today then? Hope all is well I've been out in the garden again today overwintering begonias I didn't realise there were so many different kinds corms bulbs seeds etc and guess what digging the garden yesterday day I slipped twisted my shoulder and have now got pain from my shoulder through to my forearm and my fingers. I've not stopped to taking painkillers all day got an appointment at physio in the morning so we shall see what happens there. Went down paid my respects at the memorial this morning for armistice day not a lot there it's immaterial I went to pay my respects not be part of an audience.

    Glad that Kell managed to sort the dog issue out .a soft lock down? Does that mean they get paid for staying at home Liverpool are on lockdown and they're getting paid there are rumours of unrest on the streets they want lockdown for the next 27 years just normal really

    Hiya ppqp
    Glad you are feeling better today .yes why.... not let's have our own Wailing Wall. the vaccine over here apparently has passed all the tests the government in its infinite wisdom as ordered 30 million tests I wondering has anyone told them there are 66 million people in the UK maybe the 30 million figures they work off for immigration

    Hiya lav
    How are you today then? hope all is well with you are the grandsons with you yet eating you out of house and home in fact it's only the one isn't it have a great time..I noticed that Trump was at the veterans memorial today ..I would be totally insulted for my comrades after the comments he previously made about them ...how come he saluted too? that should be for those in uniform .

    Here is my lid ..from 36 years ago!!!

    20201111_173356.jpg

    Hiya treacle how are you hope all is well l now that you've been to the Red Lion pub in Stocksbridge it was probably a Scotsman looking for a pub to have a drink and couldn't find one so thought I'll start my own


    Right folks I don't know how this is turned out I can't read it because I'm doing it on my phone as my arm with ache to bits if I was writing take care look after yourselves keep smiling be safe and sober

    MAE ALL...

    Pauly...I hope no issues arise by Kell giving the dog away (to someone). I'm not sure how strict the rules are over there. Other than not being able to visit some of my family, the holidays will be much the same as usual. I'm not doing a turkey so you can have mine. LOL

    Mick...ouch! I'm surprised Julie let's you out of the house. Sounds like you did a number on it and I hope the physio in the morning resolves things for you. Although we were not allowed to gather at our memorial this year I was there virtually. For some reason I'm really emotional this year, lots of tears during the service and the following stories. Perhaps with this pandemic and mandatory lockdowns it really brought home what our veterans fought for, our freedom. Post turned out great and I love your lid.

    Got to remember this is Wednesday, not Saturday, and that I have to go to work tomorrow. LOL Hope you're all having a great AF Day......PPQP

    Re: November 8, 2020

    Mae all -

    Wow, a lot of information to catch up on! Great to hear how everyone is doing... yes, the weather is strange all over. Sunny and warm yesterday here, then warm and rainy and blowy today, then I guess tomorrow more seasonal, as Lav said...

    I worked all day on estate stuff and my eyes are about crossed right now, so I'll be brief, but want to thank everybody who is here and doing the good work... such a heartening thing to come back to something which is stable and still going... cheers to you all.

    Today I am honoring not just all the veterans (3 in my immediate family) but I think we should also be honoring all the Covid war veterans; the nurses, doctors, helpers, cleaners of hospitals, all those who are risking their lives everyday for our health, and to save our loved ones. And of course to remember the astonishing number of people who have been taken by this disease... by some accounts more here in the US than in all our wars combined... I think that counts for something...

    Grateful to you all... ❤️��

    teegee you are right..it is a war ..a silent enemy ,fuelled by complacency ignorance lack of resources.Information and intelligence is scant and dependant on who you talk to ,therefore how can you fight against odds like this.And yet despite all this ,people do put their lives at risk to help others ,ordinary folk trying their best .People have lost loved ones friends,and still carry on .Stay strong .

    A bloke I work with is part Irish, part black, part Asian and part French. I have no idea how to abuse him.

    I tried to warn my now deceased son about the dangers of Russian Roulette.

    It went in one ear and out the other.

    Why are they called green olives?

    Surely they're olive coloured.

    Re: November 8, 2020

    Greetings friends!

    Tried repeatedly to logon yesterday but there was no success. Don’t know what was wrong, my internet was working fine.
    We have had a ton of rain yesterday & today, maybe the wires were affected?
    Everything is fine here although my daughter contacted me today to say the hospital where she works & all of the other hospitals in the county (except one) have closed their ERs & are diverting emergencies elsewhere. That’s very sad & very dangerous on so many levels. It used to occasionally happen when I was working too due to high levels of flu cases showing up for care. But this is different & it’s going to keep going for an extended period of time. Not a good time for anyone having a heart attack or stroke
    Keeping busy with embroidery orders, animal care & feeding, a very small amount of cleaning & cooking, haha.

    PQ, I quickly realized when the kids grew up that I had to turn off my ‘mother worry machine’ or lose my mind. I told myself they were responsible adults, I taught them what they needed to know, the rest was out of my hands, LOL. Hope your snow is not too big of a hassle.

    Pauly, the dog is up on her shots I assume so you shouldn’t have any problem taking ownership. The board of health gets involved when someone is bitten by a stray with unknown medical & vaccination history. Small kids really shouldn’t be left unsupervised with any dog, they react in a normal way for them. I just heard they are reporting 5000 new Covid cases today here in PA, how sad.

    Cyn, grateful to have you back here, you have been missed
    I am reading about nurse burnout, way more than the usual burnout associated with nursing. It’s completely understandable. I don’t think most people know that the nurses are not receiving any hazard pay, no raises or 401k contributions this year, no paid vacation or personal days on top of everything else! Even my daughter has had her hours drastically cut because the hospital ‘can’t afford to pay them’. It’s just insane.

    Mick, sorry about your shoulder, sounds painful. I guess I’ll get the restraints out & tie you to your chair again, haha! I hope you heal up quickly!
    Remember the lettuce I planted in the deck boxes last fall? I must have had some really good seeds because the lettuce is still growing!!

    Hello to Det & anyone else checking in tonight.
    Have a good night all!

    Lav
    AF since 03/26/09
    NF since 05/19/09
    Success comes one day at a time

    Re: November 8, 2020

    MAE ALL...

    TG...totally agree with you and Mick, it is a war. We are certainly glad you're back. Don't over do it, everything that needs to get done will get done.

    Mick...I'm sure they see $$ when they see you coming. Do you have to go back for more? You take it easy and mend. Yup, there's snow on the ground and I'm sure it's here to stay. Calgary pretty much missed most of the snowfall warnings, it was everywhere around us though. Same weather here today, sunny and cold, even though we got above freezing that wind had a bite to it.

    Lav...did you forget to stand on your left foot with your right arm up in the air? LOL Who knows what causes these disruptions, 5G? Closing ER's is scary, I hope your daughter is able to survive the reduced hours until things get back to somewhat normal. When my son left for Saskatchewan I told myself I'm not going to sit here and worry about him. Whatever happens, happens. I managed to do that but now I'm wondering when he's coming home. LOL We didn't get clobbered with snow this go around but it's early days. LOL

    Shout out to the gang. Pi...I've had you on my mind lately, check in when you get a chance.

    Did a trial run of the Zoom AGM webinar today with the boss. OMG I hope he gets it figured out before the 19th. I just kept telling myself not my monkey, not my circus. New Covid restrictions in Alberta were put in place today but nothing too drastic. No school closures so our Out of School program continues.

    Have a good night all....PPQP

    morning all,
    TG, so glad to see you back.
    we got close to 6" of rain in the last day and a half, but didn't lose power. It did flicker a time or two. Those poor folks along the gulf must wince when they hear "tropical storm".
    not much to report, just checking in. hope everyone is well
