    Re: April 11th

    Good evening friends!

    Turned rainy & chilly today, same for tomorrow then it looks like dry weather for the next week. Good!
    Accompanied YB to yet another medical appt today, the last for 3 months I think. Gets a bit tiresome because I can’t go inside the offices & have to sit in the car......boring, haha!

    Cyn, so glad you finally got your call completed. This stuff is hard enough to do but adding connection issues is just ridiculous. Hope your day was better today & you got some well deserved rest

    PQ, sounds like you made some good progress!
    I know I will get my a$$ in gear once these pollen levels drop down to manageable levels. For me springtime = lethargy, haha!

    Det, those are some gorgeous pictures, wow!!! I have never seen those places in real life so I appreciate your work!
    Yeah, taking care of ourselves has to be a daily process. Sh*t piles up too quickly & overloads us before we know what is going on. I don’t know about you but I don’t like surprises. I need to feel in control of what’s happening to me at some degree. Thinking about Mick’s suggestion of a pair of embroidered handcuffs on a pillow ~ I just may do one & see what kind of response I get haha! The customer who wants a pillow for her son’s wedding will definitely get something different LOL

    Mick, as long as you guys are warm enough enjoy the chilly camping. I always liked camping before the spring bugs arrived, haha! We haven’t had any plants freeze yet but there’s still a chance I guess. We’re really not supposed to plant outside before Mother’s day in May but we do.
    Keep enjoying your trip

    Hello to Pauly, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: April 11th

    Mae all -

    Det, thank you so much for the great vibes ... I am turning them around super-quick and sending them right back to you!! Be sure to give yourself a lot of love and support too - very impressive hearing about how you handled the stress-overload, kudos. It sounds like things will be picking up... I started over many times in my work life, and the beginnings are tough, but worth it. Good luck!

    Mick, just the names of those places and trails are so charming and poetic... I'm sure the hikes are the same. Glad you are out and about.

    Lav, I get the car thing... when I was sitting in the car making these calls, then waiting in line (once I was the 2,436th!) I got very annoyed and fidgety, so I get it! Glad that you will be done for a few months. All the news is good for YB? Hope so. Take care...

    PPQ, so glad to hear that things seem to be balancing out in your work - hope that continues...

    Pauly, hoping all is well - take care-

    Sam and all others, wishing you well - stay strong -

    Re: April 11th

    Greetings all,

    Great day - got my hair cut
    I hate that ‘helmet head’ feeling, haha! We’ve seen the sun a few times today so that’s nice.

    Cyn, yep YB is holding well in the melanoma dept. Of course keeping him out of direct sun is nearly impossible but I think he does understand the consequences at this point.
    He’s had so many different doc appts lately it’s kinda crazy. There is no need for me to go along except when he see the eye specialist & gets those blinding drops.
    Hope your day was calmer today if that’s even possible right now. Take care of you

    Pauly, thought of you a few times today after seeing my hair cutter/stylist & then stopping in Walmart & seeing lots of folks pushing those carts with multiple bins, shopping for others. Hope your day was good

    Mick, you walking fool, wow!! Great exercise, good for you!
    Congrats to Julie in her AF time, awesome
    I just saw a bunch of pictures of frozen fruit trees & vineyards in France, Belgium & other places, sad. The pics showed all the efforts to try to save crops, burning straw bales, lanterns, etc.
    Enjoy your last day of vacation!

    Hello to PQ & Det, hope everything is OK.
    Hello to Sam & Pie.

    Not much going on here. Wishing everyone a nice night!

    MAE ALL...

    Managed to get all my work done before the latest Windows Update landed and screwed up all my remote connections. Been in the office dealing with workstations only to come home and find out I couldn't connect. Just what I need before the Saturday morning workshop. Back to the office to reset things and home again to test it, yay, it worked.

    Sorry for not responding directly to everyone but I'm bushed. Will read back tomorrow and catch up. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Mae everybody, Lav it's funny how people from the site pop into our heads when we see something related, I do it all the time haha, speaking of melanoma Lou had to have a mole cut off the back of his neck a few weeks ago, turned out to be nothing but it was scary thinking that all those days at the pool could've had impact on such a young kid, so yea avoid the sun eeeks! Mick looks nice PQ, hello to you busy lady, how's the boys doing? Brady quit his pizza place and is just doing Door dash, I do it too can be good money if you hustle but ALOT of people don't tip which is rude, especially since gas is going up so rapidly here! I'm queen of the $10 fill up and it's not going very far haha, Cyn, sounds like thing are finally going along smooth for you, much love to all and wishes for a great BF Fryday!

    My son said I’m obsessed with coffee.

    I gave him a roasting and then told him he was grounded.

    Researchers have determined that 'magic mushrooms' can help combat symptoms of depression.

    I can't say I'm surprised, I find if I'm a little down and I eat ordinary mushrooms I feel much better.

    As long as they're pan fried and surrounded by a stack of crispy smoked bacon, piles of sausages, black pudding, fried bread, hash browns, baked beans and a couple of fried eggs.

    I applied for a job in a laboratory, they asked what my qualifications were, I said "going shopping for the last year".

    Bill and Sam, two elderly friends, met in the park every day to feed the pigeons, watch the squirrels and discuss world problems. One day Bill didn't show up. Sam wasn't concerned; he thought Bill might have a cold or some urgent appointment. But after Bill hadn't shown up for a week or so, Sam really got worried. However, since Sam didn't know where Bill lived (the only time they ever got together was at the park) he was unable to find out what had happened to him. After a month had passed, Sam figured he had seen the last of Bill.


    On his next visit to the park, however, Bill was sitting on their usual bench waiting for him. Amazed and delighted, Sam exclaimed,'For crying out loud Bill, what in the world happened to you?'

    Bill replied, 'I've been in jail.'

    'Jail?' cried Sam. 'You?! What on earth for?'

    'Well,' Bill said, 'you know Sue , that cute little blonde waitress at the coffee shop where we sometimes go?'

    'Yes,' said Sam, 'I remember her. What about her?'

    'Well, one day she filed rape charges against me. At age 89,I was so proud that when I got into court, I pleaded 'guilty.'

    'The judge gave me 30 days for perjury.

    Jake is 5 and learning to read.

    He points at a picture in a zoo book and says, "Look Mama! It's a frickin' Elephant!"

    Deep breath ... "What did you call it?"

    "It's a frickin' Elephant, Mama! It says so on the picture!"

    and so it does ...

    "A f r i c a n Elephant "

    A duck hunter was out enjoying a nice morning on the marsh when he decided to take a leak.... He walked over to a tree and propped up his gun. Just then a gust of wind blew, the gun fell over, and discharged... shooting him in the genitals.

    Several hours later, lying in a hospital bed he was approached by his doctor.

    "Well sir, I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that you are going to be ok, the damage was local to your groin, there was very little internal damage, and we were able to remove all of the buck shot. The bad news is that there was some pretty extensive damage done to your penis. I'm going to have to refer you to my brother."

    "Oh, well I guess that isn't too bad," the man replied "is your brother a a plast ic surgeon?"

    "Not exactly." answered the doctor. "He's a flute player in the local symphony....He's going to teach you where to put your fingers so you don't piss in your eye" .

    Doesn't seem fair though, she knew I was a mad sports fan when she met me.

    Nevertheless, last night being our wedding anniversary, I tried to see things from her side and booked a table for 2, for 8pm.

    By 9pm, things were 10 times worse!!! She hadn't potted a single f**king red . . . !

    A Rabbi arrived at a Shul to give a speech. He sat and waited silently. The congregation sat patiently waiting for the Rabbi to begin. The Rabbi continues to sit quietly.

    Fed up waiting, the Shamus approaches the Rabbi. "Rabbi, why are you waiting? Please start your speech".

    The Rabbi points to his mouth and whispers to him "I left my false teeth at home".

    The Shamus takes the Rabbi's keys and runs to the Rabbi's house, returning shortly with the false teeth.

    The Rabbi starts speaking. He talks and talks. It is getting late, everyone wants him to finish. They want to go home, but the Rabbi keeps on talking.

    The Shamus approaches the Rabbi and asked politely, "Rabbi, why do you talk so much..."?

    The Rabbi answered: "You brought my wife's teeth".

    Re: April 11th

    Greetings friends,

    Clouds then sun today, a bit chilly but not bad really.
    I have my grandson back for another overnight at his request. All is quiet so far

    PQ, sorry to hear you’re bouncing around like a pinball, haha! Everything is great when it works, right?
    I hope this weekend is a good one for you.

    Pauly. It’s true that we start the skin damage when we’re just kids. No one cared when we got sunburned as kids. Today we know better & actually use sun screens & protective clothing on the kids. Glad you guys got Louie taken care of
    I think I almost always have MWO members on my mind too. I’ve been checking in here daily for the past 12+ years, it’s family now!

    Mick, glad your trip was a success. Hopefully when you head back out in May it will be warmer & better for camping & hiking without frostbite haha!
    Are you able to use Google Maps over there? That’s how we find our way around unknown areas.

    Hello to Cyn, Det, Sam & Pie. Hope everyone is A-OK.
    Have a nice night all. Someone here is asking for an ice cream cone haha.

    Re: April 11th

    Mae all - a busy couple of days as I executed the move to hideaway no. 6. This is getting a little old. But god bless my wonderful pup who handles it all pretty well... he looked confused this morning when we awoke, but as long as he sees me he seems to be fine.

    Mick, awesome trip. I'll be right over for breakkie... that looked delicious! When we hiked the coastal road in Cornwall, the excellent breakfasts were a special delight. Wales!!! My country! I have been through the south, but never the north... that's on my bucket list.

    Lav, how sweet the the boys are requesting "single" time with you - so great that they know that they can have personal attention. Rain all day yesterday, and cold, spitted snow, but I don't think anything froze... hope your flowers are staying strong!

    PPQ, sheesh, those Windows updates... I now schedule them to my timing, and don't do them until I've made a Restore Point, or whatever it's called... the last time the update removed a handful of apps! What?!! I was glad to have a Restore to go back to... I hope your online event goes well this morning... then take the day off!!!

    Pauly, thanks so much for sending Light!!! I feel it! Sending it right back to you-- sorry about people not tipping... they need to wake up! I waited tables for many years, and I sometimes wanted to say "if you don't have to walk into the kitchen to get this food, and since I did the work, can you spare some $? Lol. Good luck with all that. You need Lav to make you a work vest that says "Thanks so much for your kind Tip"!

    Det, how are you doing? Still sending you strong coping vibes, and best wishes for a plum job to fall into your hands. Stay strong!

    Hello to all else dropping by... sending you good energy for a bright day, whatever the weather...
