    Re: 13th December

    holy crap, here he is went through a few weeks of existential crisis as we are faced with the maddening ongoing school shutdowns in Vegas and girly is not doing well at all and she's
    not alone. Teen suicides and serious depression are going crazy here and it's an intensely unhealthy situation. None of us are in any way attracted to Vegas anyway so we are pulling the plug
    and moving to north Utah where people are actually nice and schools are open and both society and their economy are trucking along nicely. we had a really good visit there a few weeks ago
    and were just stunned by how nice and 'human-like' people are in the area. it's also drop-dead gorgeous with amazing mountains etc. so HUGE changes are afoot. Darlene quitting her job of 9 years,
    me transferrring and starting all over again, finding new place and storage etc etc has been a pile of stressors and I got mired into a pretty serious depression a couple weeks ago that I'm finally
    crawling out of. Pauly, thanks for reaching out on IG. Yes I'm happy to be safe and sober (somehow). Looking to move end of Jan/early Feb so we are furiously downsizing and selling or donating things
    to neighbors and friends that need things.

    Darlene had an illuminating talk with her doctor yesterday and they talked for a bit about the pandemic. Doc says that if anyone comes into the clinic with sniffles or anything at all they automatically
    record it as Covid even if they don't test. WTF? even more alarming is that anyone that they can get onto a ventilator for any reason at all is also labeled C19 as it gets them a guaranteed $30K kick-down from
    uncle Fed. lovely! no wonder our numbers are a mess and it's no surprise to see our tax money being wasted as usual. argh!

    it's hard to remain positive in a land of stupidity but I'll do my best. in more fun news we've been baking cookies, taking some Christmas pics in silly PJ's and basically doing what we can to have some semblance
    of happy holiday time.

    Treegirl, feeling for you and sending much strength.

    PPQ, that's some impressively challenging weather...yikes. any skiing plans?

    Lav, I've never made pizzelles but love how cute they are. fairly easy? but then yes I'll have to hide them from myself also LOL.

    Mick, great pics and looking good there despite the weather.

    Sam, sleep is a hard one for me too... good job.

    finally made it back to the gym yesterday after 2 weeks of miring in worry and running around in circles. sigh... trying to stay organized
    is my priority as I tend to get all upset and attempt 10 projects at once which isn't good.

    work is still slow due to the time of year but I do have one shoot today thankfully which I should pack for I suppose.

    that's the latest from crazy-land.... I'll try not the disappear for too long this time

    be well loves!

    hiya ppqp how are you too?hope all is well ...big shout to teegee Pauly n everyone else

    Microsoft have released a festive advent calendar this Christmas.

    No chocolates just a load of fcking updates every time you open your windows.

    Remember the old days when we used to eat cake after someone blew all over it?

    Man, we were wild...

    Since COVID-19 track and trace came in, I've had 20 new names and 20 new numbers.

    Scientists have proven that anything can sound impressive if you say scientists have proven it.

    True Story of Two Wisconsin Duck Hunters
    Heard on a Wisconsin Radio Station


    A guy buys a new Lincoln Navigator for $42,500.00 with monthly payments of $560.00.

    He and a friend go duck hunting in upper Wisconsin . It's mid-winter.............and of course all of the lakes are frozen.

    These two guys go out on the ice with their GUNS, a DOG, and of course the new NAVIGATOR. They decide they want to make a natural looking open water area for the ducks to focus on, something for the decoys to float on.

    Now..................making a hole in the ice large enough to invite a passing duck, is going to take a little more power than the average drill auger can produce. So........................out of the back of the new Navigator comes a stick of dynamite with a short 40 second-fuse.

    Our two Rocket Scientists...........afraid they might slip on the ice while trying to run away after lighting the fuse (and becoming toast, along with the Navigator), decide on the following course of action:

    - they light the 40 second fuse; then, with a mighty thrust,
    - they throw the stick of dynamite as far away as possible.

    Remember a couple of paragraphs back when I mentioned the NAVIGATOR, the GUNS, and the DOG...?

    Let's talk about the dog:

    A highly trained Black Lab used for RETRIEVING; especially things thrown by the owner. You guessed it......................The dog takes off across the ice at a high rate of speed and grabs the stick of dynamite, with the burning 40-second fuse........... Just as it hits the ice.

    The two men swallow, blink, start waving their arms and, with veins in their necks swelling to resemble stalks of rhubarb, scream and holler at the dog to stop.

    The dog, now apparently cheered on by his master, keeps coming. One hunter panics, grabs the shotgun and shoots the dog. The shotgun is loaded with #8 bird shot, hardly big enough to stop a Black Lab.

    The dog stops for a moment, slightly confused, then continues on. Another shot, and this time the dog, still standing, becomes really confused and of course terrified, thinks these two geniuses have gone insane!!!!!!

    The dog takes off to find cover, UNDER the brand new Navigator.

    The men continue to scream as they run. The red hot exhaust pipe on the truck touches the dog's rear end...................he yelps, drops the dynamite under the truck and takes off after his master.

    Then KA BOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

    The truck is blown to bits and sinks to the bottom of the lake, leaving the two idiots standing there with 'I can't believe this just happened' looks on their faces.

    The insurance company says that sinking a vehicle in a lake by illegal use Of explosives is NOT COVERED by the policy. And he still had yet to make The first of those $560.00 a month payments.

    The dog is okay....doing fine.

    And to think you thought all Rednecks lived in the South.......

    Brochure circulated by a 5-Star Chinese Hotel

    Getting There:
    Our representative will make you wait at the airport. The bus to the hotel runs along the lake shore. Soon you will feel pleasure in passing water. You will know that you are getting near the hotel, because you will go round the bend. The manager will await you in the entrance hall. He always tries to have intercourse with all new guests.


    The hotel:
    This is a family hotel, so children are very welcome. We of course are always pleased to accept adultery. Highly skilled nurses are available in the evenings to put down your children. Guests are invited to conjugate in the bar and expose themselves to others. But please note that ladies are not allowed to have babies in the bar. We organize social games, so no guest is ever left alone to play with them self.


    The Restaurant:
    Our menus have been carefully chosen to be ordinary and unexciting. At dinner, our quartet will circulate from table to table, and fiddle with you.


    Your Room:
    Every room has excellent facilities for your private parts. In winter, every room is on heat. Each room has a balcony offering views of outstanding obscenity. You will not be disturbed by traffic noise, since the road between the hotel and the lake is used only by pederasts.


    Bed
    Your bed has been made in accordance with local tradition. If you have any other ideas please ring for the chambermaid. Please take advantage of her. She will be very pleased to squash your shirts, blouses and underwear. If asked, she will also squeeze your trousers.


    Squaw with her Doctor - Groaner

    A young Native American woman went to a doctor for her first ever physical exam. after checking all of her vitals and running the usual tests, the doctor said, "Well, Running Doe, you are in fine health. I could find no problems. I did notice one abnormality, however".

    "Oh, what is that, Doctor"?

    "Well, you have no nipples".

    "None of the people in my tribe have nipples", she replied.

    "That is amazing", said the doctor. "I'd like to write this up for The American Journal of Medicine if you don't mind"?

    She said, "OK. no problem".

    "First of all" asked the doctor, "how many people are in your tribe"?

    She answered, "Approximately 500".

    "And what is the name of your tribe", asked the doctor?

    Running Doe replied, "We're called........

    Re: 13th December

    Mae all - Mick, thanks for those laughs, much needed! So glad to hear that you will be able to do your van camping... I keep dreaming of my camper... some day. So sorry that wretched shingles is intent on hanging around - take care.

    Lav, so sorry about the trouble sleeping... my pup always has to get up once or twice a night, so I've kissed a good night's sleep goodbye for the time being... Thise pizelles sound so yummy - I would def have to hide them from myself! We had a beautiful snow yesterday - just wet enough to stick to the trees, which was so pretty. I had to go out in it, but it wasn't terrible. So, we are getting another storm? Hmmmm, I had better tune into the weather channel... hoping you stay warm and dry!

    Det, thanks so much for writing, it is great to know how you are doing, and what your plans are... we were in Utah for a trip a few years back, and loved the beauty of it... so glad you have made plans that will work for you. congrats on staying strong through all this!

    PPQ, yes, you must know exactly what I'm talking about, re: tracking kids. We should probably all be that vigilant. Are you in the deep freeze? We have a sunny day here, but the wind has kicked up and it's brutal... enjoying a hot coffee now that I am done with errands...

    Sam, congrats on the sleep! I have always admired farmers or those who absolutely MUST get up and take care of animals... that's a special skill. I am remembering that my great-grandfather would always give the animals an extra portion of hay on Christmas... it sounded so sweet...

    Pauly, how is the household? I always love the turtle pics... and your flashback pics... all fun.

    Well, I finally am making some sense out of this place... getting the various "bags" (my organizing regime) put away and figuring out where the contents can be stowed for the next 3.5 months. Work for the festival is very very intense right now, and I am not always up for that, but must keep up with the team... hopefully I can knock some work out yet this afternoon... I did errands, mail, dropped off gifts first today. Sheesh the stores are wild?! But they are taking temps before you go in, so I guess that's a help.

    Good luck everyone with the weather and all other challenges...

    To the light!

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...please do post a snow pic tomorrow and I'll post a green grass pic. LOL Mild temps for the rest of the week now. Your pizzelles look great, you are so talented. Are you keeping Stella house bound today?

    Det...thanks for posting, knew you were probably busy but WOW! I don't have kids in school and can't imagine what it's like at home for those that do. Sounds like the whole family in agreement to the N Utah move, well done. Interesting to hear about the C19 declarations from the medical field, no wonder the numbers are so high. Sounds like you're doing ok keeping positive and dealing with the lows without drinking. Hats off to you.

    Mick... for the campsite opening and sod the tier idiots. How much safer could you be. I'll pass on the Microsoft Advent Calendar thank you very much.

    TG...I love it when the trees are covered in hoar frost, makes a beautiful picture. Not fun to drive under when they start melting. No deep freeze at the moment but winter doesn't officially start till Monday. Our wind is supposed to pick up this afternoon but in the form of a chinook. Just remember to breath getting ready for the festival.

    Shout out to Pi, Sam and Pauly.

    Had a productive work from home morning ending with a phone meeting with the boss. Other than asking me to follow up on some things for him, not much going on. Decided I need something to have in the house to much on so went out and picked up fruit, veg's, meat, cheese, shrimp and bread. Going to make up a chicouteri board for me and the boys. Have a good day all.....PPQP

    Re: 13th December

    Greetings Abbers,

    Cold out, already below freezing, ugh. Snow is supposed to start tomorrow around noonish. I have gotten countless winter storm warnings on my phone today, haha!!
    Found a roasted turkey breast in the freezer & turned it into a pot of turkey noodle soup, yum. That should keep us fed for a few days. That & cookies of course

    Det, glad you stopped in today. We do get worried when someone goes missing.
    Your move plans sound great, I hope you find happiness in northern Utah
    I have to say I have. Talked to several docs (friends) about Coronavirus & they definitely are not inflating numbers here. There’s no need to when you walk into the local hospitals & see all the Covid patients filling the beds. 2400 Americans die every single day in this country .

    Mick, yep lots of mud here but we threw a bale of straw in the chicken yard today so the chickens could get outside.
    Good news about your van trip, I’m happy for you.

    Cyn, you got snow when we got rain yesterday. Tomorrow the snow machine will be cranking out lots of snow.
    The pizzelles are easy to make & not too sweet. I’ve been making them since high school so I think I’ve gotten the technique down, haha! Keep yourself warm & dry too & don’t work too much

    PQ, will you feel sorry for me tomorrow when we’re snowed in? Probably not, haha! The Stella was one happy bunch of girls to get out & play today.
    Keep that work from home gig low key, OK?

    Hello to Sam & Pie!

    Time to go catch up on a few things. Wishing everyone a good night!

    Re: 13th December

    Mae all - quick hello. Lav, it looks like we're going to get hit! Ours doesn't arrive until later this afternoon, so I'll be able to have Zander keep his chiropractic appointmentat 2 pm... (Yes, you read that right, the dog gets the chiropractic work in the family, not me) .

    Finished up with potential power outage protection... cash in hand, car filled with gas, 5 gallon bucket filled with water, plenty of food (Lav, I'll be making beef/yam/kale stew soon.) Candles, batteries, etc. I have never been "in town" for a snow event (we used to be on a well system up and out of town) so even if power is out, now I could walk down to the "village" for food pickup or other supplies if needed.

    I hope all are doing well - I'll check in again later today...

    Stay safe!

    Re: 13th December

    Good evening all,

    Snow started exactly at noon & was done by a little after 5 to the tune of 6-7 inches. It’s windy too but no power issues yet. The generator is ready, just in case.
    Got the tree up & decorated today, love the lights

    Mick, I hope your dental visit went well & things are wrapped up in that department.
    Take care of those new teeth now & save money in the future haha.

    Cyn, you know how to get ready for these storms, you’ve got all the bases covered. That’s so cool that you are within walking distance of the town’s amenities.
    I hope Zander enjoyed his appointment this afternon.

    Hello to the rest of the group & hope everyone is OK.
    I should start wrapping gifts, something I don’t especially enjoy doing for some reason, haha.
    Have a good night all.

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...thanks for posting the snow pic today, hope things don't get too bad. Your snow covers your mud, ours our potholes. LOL Kept the work from home gig low key today. Went out to pick up a couple of essentials, couldn't believe it, every aisle I turned down there was the thing I was looking for. In/Out in 5 minutes....never happens. Dropped off a couple of gifts for my coworker/friends, picked up some lunch and figured work could wait until tomorrow. LOL

    Mick...I sure hope this is it for the dentist trips, it's been a long haul for you. Spend some time healing the face and arms and get ready for your Chrimbo escape.

    TG...wow, you are one ready lady. You know the old question "If you were stranded on a desert island who would you want with you?" My answer is you. I would feel safe in any situation if you were by my side.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. Hope everyone is surviving....PPQP

    Re: 13th December

    Mae all... well s.n.o.w.y here! I was disappointed, as it didn't start until quite late, then at 4 AM when I let the dog out, it was only about 6 inches... but then the main part of the storm hit, and I guess we have well over 2 feet at this point... and not as much wind, so that is good. But I had to suit up (hubs ski jacket, my rain pants over sweats) and get out and shovel a path for poor Zan to go out in the yard... I could barely get the front door open, and making a 6 foot path was interesting- I sliced and diced, and got it down to where he didn't sink into his chest. I am so strange, I just love shoveling... instant gratification, you can see exactly what you've accomplished!!

    PPQ - you are so sweet, what a huge compliment. Don't believe it... I walk around in a fog most of the time ��.

    Sending well wishes to all, and will pop back on in a bit with pics. (PS- the other great thing about snow? Everything becomes brighter!! Yay!)
