    Re: 14 Mar

    Hello everyone how are we today then question mark hope everyone is doing ok firstly happy st. Patrick's Day to all those that it applies to. The weather over here is absolutely fantastic today day, I've been out in the garden trying to reassess what I'm going to do do because I think the idea of the tubs with the trees in them down the side of the fence is a non-starter. Bonnie one she is in one of those tubs it wouldn't take her too much to jump the fence plus the fact she has destroyed three of the trees were actually already. Been quite a busy morning in fact quite a busy day apart from chatting memory land and I've managed to put the blinds up in the bathroom plaster in the ceiling repaint to the shelves in the touching up downstairs been in the garden and put in some bedding plants so now it's time to sit down with a brew oh yes and I've made a pot of soup leek lentil and potato

    Hiya ppqp how are you today then? Things still as crazy and an accountant involved today wow best of luck with that at. In the meantime take care and enjoy yourself

    Hiya lav.... and how are you then question mark hope all is well as you can see and do this on my phone at the moment. Just had a guy around to have a look at the grass and the back garden see what I can do with it that doesn't involve rabbits drowning escaping poisoning themselves or any of that I think the whole lot is going to be turfed at the moment neither of us can think of what is possible I'm thinking of putting watchtowers and patrolling the perimeter stop them that way. I thought I left all this lot behind! Take care and look after yourself.

    Big hello to everyone else apologies for not addressing you individually, however I'm on my phone at the moment and it's interpretation of Scottish accents is very limited

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...and I thought I had a busy day! LOL Day 2 of training childcare with the account sitting in actually went better than I expected. Will be working from home tomorrow and our garden AGM is tomorrow night. That will wrap up that particular plate. It was also a gorgeous day here with higher temps promised for the weekend. Next week is spring break for the students and I hope everyone behaves themselves.

    Lav...did you get the big rain today? Apparently 23 years ago today we had 3 feet of snow, not this year. Glad there was no surprises with car. Hope you can get your vaccine soon, my turn has come around the same day as I take my biologic so I'm waiting a few days.

    TG...good luck with all the chores you have ahead of you. Hope the baby eagle was ok and glad you got the message. LOL You be well and we'll see you when we see you.

    Shout out to Det, Sam, Pi and Pauly. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 14 Mar

    Greetings all,

    No rain yet, apparently tomorrow is the big rain day. Just chilly & cloudy today.
    Decided to ride along with YB to Walmart today. He bought 12 big bags of cow manure for the garden. Even with the windows up in the truck I couldn’t help but cough the whole way home, haha. I think it would be easier to just get a damn cow & have a steady source of manure

    Mick, glad you’re getting some nice weather. We can’t plant anything outside just yet, gets too cold at night.
    Have you considered barbed wire around the top of your fence to keep the rabbits in? LOL. Maybe some motion detectors??

    PQ, we also had a huge storm back in 1998 that closed the schools for a week, ugh! I got trapped at work, couldn’t get home, it was H O R R I B L E, haha!
    You certainly have been busy at work, makes the time fly by fast, right? THat’s a good idea to put a few days in between your vaccine & biologic, geez. Still no appointments available for us within a 25 mile radius, ridiculous. Today I emailed our state representative & pitched a fit that 2 people >65 who spent 30 years taking care of other people can’t get vaccines. I doubt I’ll get any response but at least I tried.

    Cyn, I know you have a lot on your plate too & hope everything is going well!

    Pauly & Det, what’s up?
    Hi to Sam & Pie.

    Guess I’ll go walk around the yard while there’s still some light.
    Have a good night all!

    Re: 14 Mar

    Mick, just saw this and somehow thought of your jokes:
    ……………After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social Security.

    The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver's License to verify my age.
    I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at home. I told the woman that
    I was very sorry, but I would have to go home and come back later.

    The woman said, 'Unbutton your shirt'.
    So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair.
    She said, 'That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me' and she processed my Social Security application.

    When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at the Social Security office.

    She said, 'You should have dropped your pants. You might have gotten disability……………

    waves to everyone!!

    Mae everybody, Sam that was funny haha, good to see you Mick, you'll figure something out with the planting of the trees, you're always so crafty and think of cool ways to do things, Lav, that's crazy there's no vaccines appointments available around you, I thought they were getting a handle on the distribution by now, not much going on here the days just seem to be repeating themselves but really that's ok cuz I'm not into surprises good or bad and I don't care for change either, hubs is talking about going into business for himself again, it's got me a bit on edge, waves to the gang and wishes for a great BF Thursday!
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"
    Drinkin won't help a damn thing! Will only make me sick for DAYS and that ugly, spacey dumb feeling-no thanks!

    Re: 14 Mar

    And good afternoon everyone hope we are all well? I'm just finished now since early o clock this morning.. but I've managed to get a load of jobs done never mind brownie points I think I'll be getting a saint hood. A Funny Thing Happened this morning very early about 2 a.m. i. heard a noise downstairs outside on the drive immediately thought somebody was trying to break into the van so I shot downstairs and through the glass panel at the bottom door I saw a light. bearing in mind that this moment all I'm wearing is the underpants from my Superman outfit haha I got to the door. At our front door on the side wall there is a cabinet in which there is a display of stoneware early ginger beer bottles. I grabbed one of the bottles unlock the door and for some reason stopped look down at the doorstep two bottles of milk a loaf bread and eggs, it was the milkman ...about 2 months ago they came round the doors canvassing to get work for the local farmers support them and also get rid of the plastic bottles etc Julie signed up to.. I remember her doing so but forgot about the first delivery which was early this morning so there's me like an idiot in underpants with bottle in hand and a cheery smile to the milkman. How to be a muppet in one easy lesson!
    Couldn't quite reach the top of the stairs to touch up ceiling so I came up with this invention


    Hiya Sam that joke just about sums it up how you doing my friend hope everything is ok with you

    Hiya Pauly.. great to hear from you hope ...everything is well I'm sure I have already found a solution. two trees that she had a crack at earlier on I cut two plastic lemonade bottles wrapped themaround the tree to protect the body she has been nowhere near it so that may be the answer. you look after yourself and yours hope everything is going good

    wow arent you spoiled meal or getting dolled up ....truck ride for cowshit ....sounds like my kind of stunt .all that rubbish about the astra zeneca vaccine...tonight the world health organisation,the european one and the uk one have all agreed that there is no link between the blood clots and the drug

    AstraZeneca: UK and EU clot reviews confirm safety of vaccine - BBC News

    how many vaccines were wasted through this ..politically immoral .

    hiya ppqp ...hows you then ?ok ..childcare stuff going ok?hows the weather doing?have you got the pennsylvanian sunshine too?hee hee ,,,,

    teegee how are you ?are youcoping ok?I hope so ...take care

    right folks take care ....


    The English hobo had been hopping on trains for three days.

    Arrived at this quaint village and decided to stop for a bite.

    Stopped in front of "GEORGE AND THE DRAGON", a pub that had just closed for the afternoon.

    He knocked at the door and a barmaid opened.

    "Luv, I've been on the road, have no money and haven't eaten for three days. Could you spare...."

    "You useless bum!! GET LOST" and slammed the door in the hobo's face.

    Undaunted, he knocks again and before the barmaid could say anything..

    "I'd like a word with George, please".

    Number 10
    Life is sexually transmitted.

    Number 9
    Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

    Number 8
    Men have two emotions: Hungry and Horny.
    If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich .

    Number 7
    Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day,
    teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks.

    Number 6
    Some people are like a Slinky ...
    Not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    Number 5
    Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals, dying of nothing.

    Number 4
    All of us could take a lesson from the weather.
    It pays no attention to Criticism.

    Number 3
    Why does a slight tax increase cost you $200.00,
    and a substantial tax cut saves you $30.00?

    Number 2
    In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird.

    And The Number 1 Thought For 2010
    "Life is like a jar of Jalapeno peppers; What you do today, might Burn Your Ass Tomorrow"

    ...a note of caution. 'You don't want to try these techniques at home'.

    'Why not' asked someone from the back of the audience? 'I watched my wife's routine at breakfast for years', the expert explained.

    'She made lots of trips to the refrigerator, stove, table and cabinets, often carrying just a single item at a time. 'Hon,' I suggested, 'Why don't you try carrying several things at once'?'

    The voice from the back asked, 'Did it save time'?

    The expert replied, 'Actually, yes. It used to take her 20 minutes to get breakfast ready. Now I do it in seven.

    Re: 14 Mar

    Greetings Abbers,

    We’ve gotten lots of rain today as promised.
    I’ve done almost nothing but eat all day. WTH???? I never do that, haha! Must be a sign I am finally losing my mind after a year of weirdness or something.

    Sam, good joke & good to see you too

    Pauly, we actually both got calls back from the state rep’s office today!
    We filled them in on the enormous amount of time spent online since January trying to schedule appointments, sitting up until midnight or after when the vaccine sites supposedly open new appointments, etc. They said they will try to help ~ we’ll see. Your husband’s desire to open his own business is scary but if he has contacts, a truck & enough tools maybe he can make it work.

    Mick, I think after all this time you really owe us a picture of you in your Superman undies, LOL. That will teach you to grab a pair of pants before you go outside investigating, haha.
    Yep, there’s nothing like a ride in a truck that is filled with cow manure - most people will never know!!!!

    Det, do you think your move to the new location had anything to do with your asthma attack? Just wondering because many years ago when my brother moved to Idaho I took my daughter to go visit him & we both ended up in his. Doctor’s office having horrible allergy symptoms from something growing out there that we had never encountered before.
    Hope you’re better soon & good luck with the taxes.

    PQ, hope your day was fabulous!

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Just popping in to stay accountable. I ended up going into work to deal with a printing issue and ended up being there all day!
    Getting ready for my virtual community garden AGM tonight and I'm way behind.
    Sounds like everyone is doing ok, well except maybe Det but it sounds like you're on the mending path.
    Will check in tomorrow as I plan on taking the day off.
    Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 14 Mar

    Mae all - great to read how all are doing.
    Mick, the Undies story is priceless... and I love the idea of cold milk in bottles, yum. Nice fix on the trees, hope it works out, that nutty Bonnie...

    Lav, uuugh, that was a long cold rain today. You poor thing with that manure, sheesh, that is unpleasant. Yes, the cardinals here have been my buddies all winter, my cheerleaders... love them. I hear you in the vaccine... it's unimaginable that it could be this hard... same here in CT. Stay strong!

    Pauly, PPQ, so good to hear from you both - good luck with all -

    Det, sorry about the asthma attack, scary... hope you are on the mend.

    Sam, very nice addition in the jokes column. Hope mud season is treating you well...

    Keeping on keeping on here. Bought the next car, but have some wrinkles to be figured out between MA seller and a CT buyer. Hopefully this chapter will be done by next week, after I move. Then waiting for the court docs so that I can sell the one I'm driving. The work challenges out west are picking up, darn. Life is interesting. Stay well all... wishing you vaccinations... big hugs..,
