    "A small man who can't reach the doorbell."

    An old man limped into the doctor's office and said, "Doctor, my knee hurts so bad, I can hardly walk"!

    The doctor slowly eyed him from head to toe, paused and then said, "Sir, how old are you"?

    "I'm 98", the man announced proudly.

    The doctor just sighed, and looked at him again. Finally he said, "Sir, I'm sorry. I mean, just look at you. You are almost one hundred years old, and you're complaining that your knee hurts? Well, what did you expect"?

    The old man said, "Well, my other knee is 98 years old too, and it doesn't hurt"!

    Re: 21Mar

    Good evening all,

    Nice spring day here, no complaints
    Attempted to do a bit of garden clean up but got bored quickly with that project, haha!! There’s always something to do around here. I’m in the midst of trying to put together a new platform bed. For the guest room hoping to get an offer of help at some point, we shall see.

    Cyn, great to hear you got an appointment too! Back in January when we were signing up at the county website I never guessed this would turn into such a hassle. Learn something new everyday
    I hope the rest of your weekend is good.

    Mick, walking on lumpy surfaces is rough enough, don’t ask me to carry something too haha!!! Those pics look awesome, glad you made it to the top in one piece
    Good to hear you had a nice day for walking!

    PQ, are they driving you nuts this weekend or is work leaving you alone? Hope so

    Pauly, what’s new with you?

    Det, feeling better I hope!

    Hello to Sam & Pie.

    Time to go do something useful.
    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 21Mar

    hiya Lav...and anyone else out there ...how are we today then?hope all is well .bit cold over here but dry too...playing in the garden,but every time I go out I change my mind ..House is finally coming together ..did you get any help putting the bed up?

    a big hiya to everyone else ..hope you are all ok...

    Two young girls have been found safe after spending the night stuck in a train. Why were the 12-year old Glasgow girls out at night in Lockdown? They should have been at home with their kids.

    My dad always said when one door closes, another one opens.

    Come to think of it, he was a sh.t carpenter.

    Gave a beggar 1.50 today and he called me a tight git because it only bought half a bottle of cider,... His dog told me to stick the smoked salmon up my ass....

    I went to this store and told the clerk I was looking for one of those rotating trays you can put on a table to spin plates of food around to you, rather than having to reach across to get what you want.

    "Ahh," he said, "The Lazy Susan ?"

    "Yeah, it's a gift for her 50th."

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...great pics glad you were able to get out but that still looks like too much effort for me. Julie's a good soul for trekking along with you. It's dry here but surprisingly cold. Although it's 40F that wind is from the north and it just chills you to the bone.

    Lav...it was an extremely busy weekend with the garden members. I don't know where the time went! So because I worked all weekend I'm taking today off. I will actually be going into work tomorrow and get the new programs up and running. It's so much easier on 2 big monitors than my one little laptop one. A little early here for garden clean up, don't want to disturb all those bugs essential to the garden. If the weather holds up we should be able to start in late April. You're ambitious. Not just a bed, a platform bed! Hope you get some help with it.

    Cyn...sounds like you got a vaccine appointment. I got mine booked today, it's not until May 2nd though. Spoke with my Doc and as long as it's not the same day I take my biologic I'm good. I hope you're getting through your never ending list of chores and that all is going well.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang, hope everyone is good. Have a great day all....PPQP

    Re: 21Mar

    Good evening friends

    We got our 1st shots this morning so we’re on our way to immunity, yay.
    The county health department set up a pretty good operation, moved lots & lots of people thru quickly & painlessly. Next shot is on April 19th.

    Mick, I am so anxious to gol out & plant things but I know it’s a bit soon. I’ll keep cleaning up the garden beds & hold off on actual planting for a while. Temp hit the mid 60’s today, not bad. Rain & cold coming Wednesday then back to milder weather again. We stopped at an Amish greenhouse today to look at plants & saw they are also selling baby bunnies for pets. Cute but I am seriously allergic to them. Found that out when we got one for our kids many moons ago.

    PQ, good to hear you took the day off after a busy weekend. Everyone deserves a break, geez.
    Good luck getting the new programs up & running.

    No, the platform bed is not done yet. I put the headboard & footboard together but I need another pair of hands to get the rails in place. I hate how I have to pester some people to help, haha!! It will get done, eventually.

    Helllo to Cyn, Pauly., Det, Sam & Pie. Hope everyone is well.

    Have a nice night. Everyone.

    Re: 21Mar

    Mae everybody, Mick nice pics Lav glad you got your first shot, I think I'm allergic to my guinea pigs can't hold them cuz I start sneezing bad and if the boys touch them they break out in a rash, one day Rome's eyes looked like he was in a boxing match one was swollen shut! So I constantly have to tell them to not touch them, makes me sad cuz why have a pet you can't even play with PQ, I know the cold you're describing, looks beautiful out but when you step outside it's frigid, waves to the rest of the gang and wishes for a great BF day for us all
    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: 21Mar

    Greetings friends!

    Nice day here, tomorrow not so much.
    No side effects from the vaccine, feel lucky. My arm hurts less than it does when I get a flu shot, go figure!
    We made an executive decision today & decided to hire a landscaper to weed & mulch the garden beds all around the house. It’s just not worth the aches & pains anymore for us to do the job. So some young guy can do the work & be happy earning the $$. Mick, want to apply for the job??? Ha ha.

    Pauly, I actually had a rabbit for a while when I was in high school. I had no allergy problems with him. Years later when I got one for the kids I was super surprised that I had developed the allergy. I imagine your guinea pigs have the same allergens, sad. Make sure the kids wash their hands after handling them.

    Yesterday’s mass shooting in Colorado was horrific. There seems to be no safe place to go anymore. We have to get the ARs banned, no one needs one for any good reason.
    The shooter’s brother claims he was paranoid & had been since high school. Now at the age of 21 he’s murdered 10 people & ended his own future. So sad & so unnecessary.

    Hello to PQ, Cyn, Det, Sam & Pie.

    Have a good night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...glad to hear you didn't have any adverse effects from the vaccine. Onward and Upward. Went into work today, no distractions, so got all the programs up and ready to go. It's amazing how much more work I get done when I don't sit at home at look at everything that isn't done. LOL I woke up to snow this morning, it didn't stick to the roads but it sure stuck to my car. More in the forecast, just hope we don't get a spring storm! Good plan on hiring a landscaper, we need you healthy and not sore.

    Pauly...bummer about the allergy to the guinea pigs. I hope you work something out. Even with it being cold out at least it's not -22F anymore. If people around here think we're done with winter they're living in a dream world.

    Mick...digging in the garden, our soil is still frozen! And there you go teaching me something else. Had to look up Lintel stone. Do you think there's a house underneath it? LOL Work went really well today, was left alone and got a lot accomplished. So I'm going to take the rest of the week off. LOL No really but I won't be going to the office. I'm pleased to announce that the provincial government made the right call and didn't move to Step 3 of reopening. The concern is the variant virus and it's racing through the schools right now. Every day another school shuts down and moves to online. You could really see it in how many kids were not present for out of school care. Everybody just needs to take a deep breath and hold on.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. Have a good night all....PPQP
