    Mar 28

    MAE ALL...

    Just kicking off the thread before I head out to pick up a few groceries. It's currently 50F but winter storm warnings are all around and our snow is to start blowing in this afternoon.
    It's supposed to be a fast moving squall so I hope it comes and goes before I have to head to my annual eye check up at 10am. Hopefully the roads will have been plowed by them.
    Will read back and see how everyone's been. Check in later....PPQP

    Greetings friends,

    Thanks for the startup PQ. I hope the snow went somewhere else. We are under a severe thunderstorm warning with possible tornadoes & the storm has just started. Hope I can post before we lose power or something worse.
    Everything is good here (so far), my doggie nursing home client has settled in nicely, haha! Did a pot roast in the Instant Pot in 35 minutes, talk about quick & it was good too.

    Hello to Mick, Cyn, Pauly, Det, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!

    Thank you for the startup PPQ! Hope the snow was not a big bother. Lav, we had rain and WIND today also... can of trying at times. The family is lucky that you can handle their older dog... and the dog is lucky too! Would love your pot roast technique... all by itself, or with veggies? Do you do a nice brown-up,first? Sounds so good. But maybe I'll stick with stew.. so easy for lots of meals... thanks for the thought!

    Hello to all else dropping in - may you be warm and dry and safe... enjoynthe moon if you can see it!

    big shout to everyone else...

    All this fuss about a ship stuck in the Suez wrecking the economy.

    According to the delivery labels, most of my stuff comes via the river Amazon, not the Suez

    England play Albania in a world cup qualifier tonight.

    I think their manager is the Italian, Trapandpony.

    Way down in the heat of Texas there was a teacher helping one of her kindergarten students put on his cowboy boots?

    He asked for help and she could see why...

    Even with her pulling and him pushing, the little boots still didn't want to go on. By the time they got the second boot on, she had worked up a sweat.

    She almost cried when the little boy said, 'Teacher, they're on the wrong feet.' She looked, and sure enough, they were. It wasn't any easier pulling the boots off than it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the boots back on, this time on the right feet...


    He then announced, 'These aren't my boots.'

    She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream, 'Why didn't you say so?' like she wanted to. Once again, she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off his little feet. No sooner had they gotten the boots off when he said, 'They're my brother's boots. My mom made me wear 'em.'

    Now she didn't know if she should laugh or cry. But, she mustered up what grace and courage she had left to wrestle the boots on his feet again.

    Helping him into his coat, she asked, 'Now, where are your mittens?'

    He said, 'I stuffed 'em in the toes of my boots.'

    She will be eligible for parole in three years!

    A few years ago, while I was part of a drug study.

    I suffered an accidental placebo overdose.

    I nearly died from a severe lack of symptoms.

    A pedestrian stepped off the curb to cross the street and a car suddenly came screaming around the corner and headed straight for him. He started to run, trying to get out of the way but the car changed lanes and was still coming at him.

    He turned around to go back to the curb but the car changed lanes again and was heading right for him. As the car approached, the man became so frightened that he froze and stopped in the middle of the road.

    At the last possible moment, the car swerved and screeched to a halt right beside him.

    The window rolled down and he was amazed to see that the driver was a large squirrel!

    The squirrel looked him up and down and said, "See, it's not as easy as it looks, is it"?

    A wife says to her husband, "You're always pushing me around and talking behind my back."
    He says, "What do you expect? You're in a wheel chair."

    MAE ALL...

    Snow storm went through central/southern Alberta and managed to go around Calgary. No big snow event, a few drifts here and there, but man the wind is still viscous. Made it to my eye checkup, all good. A couple of cataracts want to make their presence know but the Doc and I are going to ignore them for now. LOL

    Mick...I figured it was a "cloud" post on your part yesterday. I've learned not to anxious when you don't show up. LOL

    Lav...how are things with you? I've been seeing some wicked storms heading your way.

    TG...glad to see you popping in with everything you have on your plate.

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

    Mae all ---
    The wind was back today in a major way!!! But sunny, so that was something to hang onto...

    Mick, so nice of you to help out Amy - hope she is feeling well enough to do some of the gardening.

    Lav, hope all is going well, and that your senior dog is hanging in...

    Pauly, how awarm is it in Vegas? My stepdaughter in Napa says it's already in the 80... that sounds hot to me.

    PPQ, good news about the missed snow and your eyes. Hope you can keep some personal time as you head back to handling more work situations.

    Det, Sam, and all others, wishing you well in the springing spring --

    Feel the light...

    Re: Mar 28

    Greetings folks,

    Big windy rainstorm last night but no tornado which is kinda nice haha! The weather folks get extra excited this time of year.
    We went to visit the dead relatives today, left flowers then stopped to see our daughter & leave 6 dozen eggs. She shares with friends & neighbors

    Cyn, I found this recipe for the idea: Instant Pot Pot Roast with Carrots and Potatoes | Valerie's Kitchen
    Just add or subtract to your liking & you’ll eat well for days! I know my weather works it’s way right up to you, hope you didn’t get washed out. My son & his family are in the Outer Banks this week, right on the back bay water but he’s been texting pictures, looks calm there. The clouds covered up that big moon last night so I slept, haha.

    Mick, most of my stuff comes by the river Amazon too, haha! I see they got that stuck ship moved today & now have to catch up on a backlog of other ships.
    I enjoyed your India trip pics, thanks I hope your contractor finally made an appearance today.

    PQ, glad you’re not snowed in, geez. I saw something on the news about Highway 1 being closed due to poor driving conditions.
    So you’re developing cataracts? It takes a while for them to ‘ripen’ enough to consider removal. My brother & his wife both have had theirs removed in the past few years, both did very well.

    Hello to Pauly, Det, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all. I’m going to get this old dog out for a little exercise (me too) haha!!

    Mae everybody, all sounds good with everyone woo hoo! Cyn it was 80 something yesterday and you know I love itPQ, yikes on the cataracts but if the doc isn't too concerned then I guess it'll slide for now and be ok, Lav nice to be able to take the old dog out for a walk Mick, glad things are easing a bit there with the restrictions, think it's ok for some stuff but some of the states here are going hog wild and opening everything with no mask rules, I think that's irresponsible right now sheesh, anyways much love to all 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!

    Hello everyone just a quick jump in in. An absolute cracker of a day here it is 23 degrees out there. This morning I watched the Deer playing in the fields behind the house I videoed it and sent quite a few out don't know why but quite a few couldn't see it. Up also been up the ladders sealing the bedroom window frames on the outside. I noticed that last storm we had that there was a little bit of damp at the side of the frame. Op.gg Lee's dad is here at the moment, he has just been for a second vaccine so just to get him out he's sitting in the garden with us full stop hope everyone is doing ok will speak later. Yes know that the sun is out and he still weekends coming up up all the lunatics will be out. I had to go to the shop this morning and on the way way I saw for police cars outside a house 6 cops and about 20 people that have been in the house. Today's nuggets never learn. take care everyone and stay safe
