    stay safe and take care everyone ..

    I ate a kids meal in McDonald’s this morning. His mum was furious.

    My mate said, "My kid has decided to turn vegan and won't eat any kind of meat. What can I replace it with?"

    "A Labrador," I said, "they'll eat anything."

    Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, has announced he is to take a sabbatical 'for spiritual renewal'.

    He must have quite a problem if it's going to take him all day Sunday to make a trip to the off-licence.

    Always look out for number one.......



    Especially when eating snow.

    Good evening friends!

    Grandson has returned to his home, fridge almost empty, haha!
    Chilly & cloudy here today, just like fall is supposed to be. I blended my chicken flocks today (15 young ones with the 10 older ones). Everything seemed OK & the youngsters were very happy to finally get out & walk on the ground in the fenced yard. Keeping my fingers crossed no fights break out over night.
    Delivered an embroidery order this afternoon & I have more to get started. Apparently I am helping people get their Christmas shopping done

    Mick, sorry you’re not feeling better yet, it will take a while for the meds to kick in. In the meantime please don’t overdo it, find a quiet activity PLEASE, haha!
    I’m feeling a little pissed off that my daughter-in-law asked me to cook Thanksgiving dinner & now we hear our son will be at work on Thanksgiving. Seriously that girl is something else. She knew he wouldn’t be here when she asked to come over.

    Hello to PQ, Pauly., Det, Sam & Cyn & anyone else dropping by.
    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...so all my "like this post" from yesterday are there but not my post.

    Mick...sorry you're still feeling a bit rubbish, you're not alone, I think a lot of us are these days. I've just been going through the motions today, bit of cleaning, bit of laundry and getting ready for work tomorrow. I'm really hoping we don't go into a lockdown again as work seems to be the only thing keeping me sane these days. I'm excited to hear about your garden upgrade plans.

    Lav...it was down right cold here today. Overcast and gray so got my son to download all the Magnum PI shows to watch while putzing around. I hope there's no fighting in the hen house tonight. I think I would be a lot pissed off with my daughter in law not just a little. Seems she's a little lazy to me. A lot of families have decided to kick start the Christmas holidays and get decorating with community centres and venues stringing Christmas lights everywhere for people to be able to drive through. I always remember my parents taking us downtown during the holidays to see all the lights.

    Shout out to the group. Have a good night all...PPQP

    Mae all,

    Mick, so good to hear how you are doing... so sorry about the pain(s) I hope that goes away soon!

    Lav, that's irritating about Th. dinner, but at least you are seeing the boys... I remember when they were locked away from you... that girl does need to learn to cook!

    Pauly, wow, I missed the news that Michelle and Brady were back living with you! Because of the pandemic, probably, right? Hope all that is going OK! I was in a PetCo recently and saw guinea pigs, and thought of you ... I don't think I'd ever seen one... they were furry-cute.

    Det, how is it going? By the way, I wonder if you have ever experienced Tapping (therapy). I dipped a toe in it these last weeks, and I found a subtle but powerful shift to the Positive. Sending lot ps of good wishes your way.

    PPQ, how did the organizing turn out? I hope your weather stays bearable... my "reynauds" syndrome fingers have been turning white quite often these days... I'm waiting until I can get to my big storage locker to get my suitcases that have the winter clothes and good gloves.

    Hello Sam and anyone else dropping by.

    I had sad news early this morning that one of our orchestra violinists was struck by a car (my friend was the pedestrian) and is in critical care... facial and skull fractures, brain bleed, on a ventilator, unresponsive. It just hit me so hard; between the endless pictures of over-run ICUs and people on vents showing up in every newscast, and now this dear, talented violinist suffering such a cruel, violent blow. His family is with him... the orchestra is able to text love and thanks to the him, to be read to him by his father- - the only family member allowed in the room with him. His mother and two girls are... somewhere else, such a cruel thing.

    So everyone - please please be careful. I mean, really careful. It is so easy these days to give into the Fog... not being aware of our surroundings... in addition to remembering our masks and distance, let's stay engaged... that's a really tall order, but I think we can do it, if we try...

    To the light

    I know this might make me sound big headed,
    I can't get my fcking jumper off.

    I bought a 3D printer, printed it then sent it back.

    I was sacked from an insect repellent company for being dyslexic so I destroyed their computers.

    There's no files on me

    I've accidentally swallowed invisible ink" I've called the doctor but he can't see me

    After a month of heavy defeats, Trump finally wins in northern Ireland...

    Amazing isn't it that if you walk into a bank today WITHOUT wearing a mask, alarm bells go off?

    My dad always said around every corner is a surprise.

    Nice guy, sht tour guide.

    I've been referred to a doctor with severe migraines.

    Hopefully he's feeling better by the time we meet.

    MAE ALL...

    TG...hope you can get your winter clothes and gloves soon. My hands have been going through the whole spectrum white, blue and purple. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend, sending him healing thoughts. I like it...let's stay engaged. I'll be adding that to my stay safe goodbyes.

    Mick... you had a quiet day, well done. We may just be starting a lockdown. Our Chief Medical of Staff just gave a scathing speech and then headed into a meeting with the Premiere and others to deliver her recommendations. Our Premiere is to make an announcement tomorrow sometime so will keep you posted.

    Lav...I bet we're cross typing at this moment. Hope you had a good day.

    Shout out to the rest of you.

    It was a no-drama day, just the kind I like. Hope we all have a peaceful evening....PPQP

    Re: 22 Nov

    Good evening Abbers,

    Chilly & cloudy today, typical fall weather.
    Got into some interesting texting with my DIL today. Told her I decided to postpone Thanksgiving until Friday so my son can be here. Her response was ‘we are going to. My dad’s in NJ on Friday. Then she says our son doesn’t want to come for dinner any day because 1/3 of the entire big city fire dept is out sick with Covid & he doesn’t want to be a possible spreader here. OK, I understand that & appreciate that. Why the hell couldn’t these two, (who have multiple college degrees between the two of them ) have just communicated this in the beginning???`. KIDS - do they ever truly grow up?

    PQ, I’m not quite ready for Christmas lights yet but I’m getting close, haha. Maybe they will calm me down after all this craziness.
    Enjoy the Magnum PI series, good shows!

    Cyn, it’s so funny my DIL insisted on getting all the latest kitchen gadgets for wedding gifts but she’s never used them, LOL Her head is up in the clouds somewhere, she’s not interested in learning to cook anything.
    I’m so sorry to hear about your violinist, what a tragic accident. If it gives you any comfort I can confirm he probably has no idea what’s going on & is in no pain. This week is the 20th anniversary of my great fall down the steps & subsequent skull & facial fractures & large subdural hematoma. I was on a vent for 4 days & had no idea even after waking a bit after surgery. I was pumped so full of morphine & anesthesia I didn’t feel a thing. I pray he recovers quickly
    Keep yourself safe & as warm as possible. I didn’t give a thought to your winter clothing being in storage, geez.

    Mick, happy to hear you had an easy day. Your system needs rest to clear the infection.
    I hear the city of Philadelphia is sharply reducing the number of patrons in bars & restaurants again, which is a good idea. People are supposed to be tested if they are traveling between states & isolating for 14 days but I know that won’t happen. The government does nothing to help. Keep yourself safe!

    Hello to Pauly, Sam, Det & everyone.
    Wishing a safe night for all!

    UK and Canada commit to post-Brexit trade deal – POLITICO

    hello everyone else hope all is good ..stay safe

    I said to my doctor, "I'm having serious problems with my memory."

    He said, "Give me an example."

    I said, "The other day I spent two hours in a multi storey car park trying to remember where I'd parked my car."

    He laughed and said, "That's nothing to worry about, we've all done that."

    I said, "I don't own a fcking car."

    For 15 years, the Swedes thought sounds from the sea were Russian submarines invading their territory. They regularly investigated, sending subs, boats and helicopters - at great expense - only to come up empty-handed.

    Upon investigation by a biologist, the noise was discovered to be farts from fish.

    It seems the Swedes were having herring problems.

    If I had a pound for every woman that said I was unattractive.
    I'd now have so much money that women would start finding me attractive.

    Ready for those little gits next door and their snowball fights this year.

    Just painted all the rocks in my garden white.

    .Dirty Dancing was recently voted the best 'feelgood 'film of all time.

    Rubbish,i get my wedding video out,start viewing it in reverse,she get's the ring back,she walks back down the chapel,out the door,into the hired wedding car and disappears from my view completely.

    A certain lawyer was quite wealthy and had a summer house in the country, to which he retreated for several weeks of the year.

    Each summer, the lawyer would invite a different friend of his to spend a week or two up at this place, which happened to be in a backwoods section of Maine. On one particular occasion, he invited a Czechoslovakian friend to stay with him. The friend, eager to get a freebee off a lawyer, agreed. Well, they had a splendid time in the country - rising early and living in the great outdoors.

    Early one morning, the lawyer and his Czechoslovakian companion went out to pick berries for their morning breakfast. As they went around the berry patch, gathering blueberries and raspberries in tremendous quantities, along came two huge Bears - a male and a female. Well, the lawyer, seeing the two bears, immediately dashed for cover.

    His friend, though, wasn't so lucky, and the male bear reached him and swallowed him whole.

    The lawyer ran back to his Mercedes, tore into town as fast has he could, and got the local backwoods sheriff.

    The sheriff grabbed his shotgun and dashed back to the berry patch with the lawyer. Sure enough, the two bears were still there.

    "He's in THAT one" cried the lawyer, pointing to the male! Meanwhile visions of lawsuits from his friend's family danced in his head! He just had to save his friend.

    The sheriff looked at the bears, and without batting an eye, leveled his gun, took careful aim, and SHOT THE FEMALE.

    "Whatdya do that for" exclaimed the lawyer, "I said he was in the other"!

    "Exactly", replied the sheriff, "and would YOU believe a lawyer who told you that the Czech was in the Male"?

    A police motorcycle patrolman was rushed to the hospital because he had an inflamed appendix.

    The operation was successful and the suregeon advised him that all was well; however, the patrolman kept feeling something pulling at the hairs in his crotch.

    He was alarmed and thought is may be a second surgery that the doctors hadn't told him about it. Finally he overcome his fear and decided to investigate. He pulled his hospital gown up to see the what was causing the irritation and making him feel so uncomfortable. He immediately saw the problem causing the irritation.

    Taped firmly across his pubic hair and private parts were three wide strips of adhesive tape, the kind that doesn't come off easily -- if at all.

    Written on the tape in large black letters was the sentence, 'Get well soon, from the nurse in the Jeep you pulled over last week'.

    Re: 22 Nov

    Greetings friends,

    Another day closer to turkey day, haha!
    Of course I am grateful for everything but I am kind of tired of cooking this huge meal. I started changing my menu bit by bit over the years so I can make some things ahead of time, bake ahead & all that. These holidays have become exhausting, what can I say?

    Mick, I liked BYOT lol
    Yep, I was in ICU for 4 days & on a step down unit for a couple more before they let me go home. I looked like a war victim with staples running all the way up one side of my shaved head, black eyes from the facial fractures ~ just stunning, haha! I couldn’t take another hit like that, no way. You really do lose track of time when you’re in such serious condition. It all seems like one bad & very long nightmare. We are both very lucky to be here & thriving today

    PQ, hope your day was good!

    Hello to Det, Sam, Pauly & Cyn.

    Have a lovely night everyone!
