    April 11th

    MAE ALL....

    Starting the thread, better late than never. I ended up working on the Community Garden website yesterday and the time just got away from me. Then my son got the Nintendo working on my laptop so of course had to play that for awhile.

    I've got the newsletter to proof, association website updates to make and prepare for our strategic planning meeting this Saturday. Do you think I can get myself motivated to do any of it!! Went for a walk to get my mojo moving and turned around half way through. It's freezing out there and supposedly it's going to snow this afternoon.

    Mick...good to see you made it to the site. I'm sure you'll have a fab time and a break from the landscaping at home.

    Lav...I always like the visits but was also glad when everyone went home. LOL Hope you have some decent weather today.

    Pauly...Sundays were always my do nothing day but lately I never know what day it is. LOL

    TG...what a hassle having to change motels on top of everything else you've got on the go. This will all come to an end on day, to the light.

    Shout out to Det, Sam and Pi. Have a great day all....PPQP

    Re: April 11th

    Good evening friends!

    Thanks for the start up PQ. Why was I too lazy to do that yesterday??
    Sorry youíre getting snow today. We ended up having a huge thunderstorm here last night, tons of rain too. Iím sure our rainfall totals are near normal now
    Iím another one having trouble getting motivated. I have a lot of projects planned just no energy to dig in. With me I think part of itís due to this Covid lethargy weíre experiencing. If I had a better idea of when life was going to return to Ďnormalí I think Iíd be more enthusiastic. Operating on pure hope doesnít work well for me, haha. I hope you can get your jobs done without too much hassle.

    Mick, looks like you have a great view. The swans & ducks donít seem to mind the cold water
    I hope your stay is pleasant & restful.

    Pauly, yes the boys do need a break from their brothers & their parents from time to time. Itís good that we can help out, right?
    Hope your day was good.

    Cyn, I know youíre busy but know that i am thinking of you

    Hello to Det, Sam & Pie too.

    Had a meetup with a customer today to deliver an embroidered pillow so now I need to turn my attention to her next project - a pillow for her sonís upcoming wedding. I will search my zillions of files & come up with something for her
    Have a nice night everyone!

    Re: April 11th

    Mae all -

    Internet issues here, so couldn't get on last night.

    Interesting day yesterday... I started on the FEMA hotline for funeral-expenses-reimbursement right on the dot of 9 when they opened... according to my phone, I called 132 times. Then took a break and drove 3 hour round-trip to deliver the title of the Audi wagon that the dealer was baby-sitting for me while I am waiting for the legal docs. But the Will says the car comes directly to me, so we did a little "sideways" title transfer, and I got paid for that car, whew. Drove all the way up and back in the rain, taxing.

    Came back, had a business meeting (via phone, as no Zoom). Started calling FEMA again, not realizing that I had lost internet and the cell reception was iffy, got through, was listening to the instructions and waiting to talk to a human... and... the call dropped. That was the first of 3 more times that happened. In the evening I drove around to find a place with 4 "bars" - found it - the recording said my wait time would be 20 minutes... but that kept getting extended, and an hour later that wait time was 90 minutes... It was already 8 pm... I decided to go back to the motel... just couldn't cope.

    So, that and other business things is the order of the day today. I was bold and asked a client of mine (who is in FL to the end of the month) if I could stay at her condo... and the answer was yes! So finally I will have a kitchen sink and laundry to use for a week. Then hoping that the documents will have arrived and I will get rolling, maybe by the 20th.

    Seriously, if I didn't have responsibilities out west, I would just abandon that plan and stay here... the summers are so beautiful, there is work here, and I could get my life in order. But it will have to be next autumn... that's the way it is, and I will make it happen.

    Thanks for listening, and please send good phone vibes today!!! Sending lots of light to all... we are in the waxing moon cycle, so growth is at hand...

    Re: April 11th

    Good evening folks,

    Sunny day here which was appreciated.
    Dropped in on our daughter today to unload another 6 dozen eggs, haha. Got to see the granddaughter for a bit while she was on her lunch break from online school.
    Picked up a few more plants for the gardens & came right home & planted them.

    Cyn, Wow, what a day you had. How can we get anything done with no internet service these days?
    Glad to hear you at least got the car sorted out, that’s one thing off your list. I wish you could stay put for the summer too, you need to get some roots growing
    That’s great about the condo, good for you!

    Mick, I hope you guys packed your thermals so you don’t freeze, geez. Good that you are exploring the area & getting some fresh air.
    I see you found big bird on on your nature walk, haha!!!

    Hello to PQ, Pauly, Det, Sam & Pie - wherever you are.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: April 11th

    Thanks all for your good wishes - you did it! After hours of trying, I actually spoke to a human,... it was a long "interview" and lots of info to give, always right on the edge of losing the call, but we both hung in there -"you are fading... what did you say?...." and got the first part done. I went ahead right away and started to upload... the funeral bill was first... made me sad... but I got it done.

    After that, I was toast. Took a walk, made some dog food, and now am off to bed... hope to sleep a little better tonight.

    Thanks all - stay safe - Mick, lovely pics, stay warm!! Lav, your chickens are BUSY! Glad you got to see the girls...

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...it's good to hear I'm not the only one who's not motivated. Glad to hear you had a sunny day today. It is still cold and overcast here but the change is supposed to happen tomorrow. I got most of my work done today and am going to pop into the office tomorrow to do a couple of things I can't do from home.

    TG...WOW, what a frustrating day for you. Glad to hear your client said yes to her condo, I'm sure that was a relief for you. What a relief finally being able to talk to a "human"! At least that process has started and I hope you have a good nights sleep.

    Mick...you got to expect the cooler weather if you're camping in April. You're braver than I am. LOL Glad the heater in the van is working. Did get my mojo back and feel good about what I accomplished today. Love seeing the pics of your adventures, really appreciate you going to the trouble of uploading them.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang and I hope we all have a good night....PPQP

    Heya ABErooooodles!!

    oh my, zooming like a total nutjob. No trouble with motivation here since I want to be able to afford my gourmet eating habits I tend to cook pretty cheaply
    for the most part which is good. and certainly necessary lately.

    Tree, my goodness what an ordeal. Sending heaps of strength and love to you xxxxxxoooooo!! (I could use some too) so we give what we want and need.

    Lav, so good you are being creative and making custom pillows even. I wouldn't know where to start.

    PPPQ, thanks for the bootup on the thread. Motivation will come... I'm never sure when but it goes in cycles for sure. I'm sure the weather isn't helping.

    Mick, smashing pictures! loving it. handcuff motiff on the pillow... ha!

    Here are some shots from our trip to Moab which was truly amazing and gorgeous:

    PICS: Shared album - London Lewis - Google Photos

    doing everything I can conceive of to try to drum-up biz and slowly it's picking up.... groan. breakthrough soon... fingers crossed

    got super stressed 2 nights ago and had to go for a drive and do 3 consecutive emergency meditations and I'm glad I did. yikes. I better do a bit
    better on the self- care department.

    that's the quickie version!

    be well loves

    hiya Lav hows you then? good hopefully,,,yep packed fermals but not needed them yet. Big bird?? youove had the children around too much!Very cold and frosty mornings..Ive lost a good few plants already in the garden ..take care ..

    hiya paulyhowz yoo ..hope all is well ..

    big shout to anyone else...

    Two Irish brothers Mick and Paddy have made a promise to their uncle. They had an Uncle Seamus who was a seafaring gent all his life and before he passed away, he made the boys promise to bury him at sea.

    Of course he did pass away and the "boys" remembered to keep their promise.

    So off they set with Uncle Seamus all stitched up in a burial bag and loaded onto their rowing boat. After a while Mick says, "Do yer tink dis is fer enuff out, Paddy"?

    Without a word Paddy slips over the side only to be standing in water up to his knees. "Dis'll never do Mick, let's row some more".

    After a bit more rowing Paddy slips over the side again but the water is only up to his belly, so on they row.

    Again Mick asks Paddy, "Do yer tink dis is fer enuff out Paddy"? Once again Paddy slips over the side and almost immediately says, "No dis'll neva do". The water was only up to his chest.

    So on they row and row and row when finally Paddy slips over the side and disappears!

    Quite a bit of time goes by and poor Mick is really getting himself into a state when suddenly Paddy breaks the surface gasping for breath.

    "Well is it deep enuff yet, Paddy"?

    "Aye it tis! Can yer hand me da shovel".

    Funny Motor Insurance Claims

    The accident happened because I had one eye on the lorry in front, one eye on the pedestrian and the other on the car behind. (Thanks Sharon Burrows)

    I started to slow down but the traffic was more stationary than I thought.

    I pulled into a lay-by with smoke coming from under the hood. I realised the car was on fire so took my dog and smothered it with a blanket.

    Q: Could either driver have done anything to avoid the accident
    A: Travelled by bus

    The claimant had collided with a cow. The questions and answers on the claim form were -
    Q: What warning was given by you
    A: Horn.
    Q: What warning was given by the other party
    A: Moo.

    I started to turn and it was at this point I noticed a camel and an elephant tethered at the verge. This distraction caused me to lose concentration and hit a bollard.

    On approach to the traffic lights the car in front suddenly broke.

    I was going at about 70 or 80 mph when my girlfriend on the pillion reached over and grabbed my testicles so I lost control.

    I didnt think the speed limit applied after midnight

    I knew the dog was possessive about the car but I would not have asked her to drive it if I had thought there was any risk.

    Q: Do you engage in motorcycling, hunting or any other pastimes of a hazardous nature
    A: I Watch the Lottery Show and listen to Terry Wogan.

    First car stopped suddenly, second car hit first car and a haggis ran into the rear of second car.

    Windscreen broken. Cause unknown. Probably Voodoo.

    The car in front hit the pedestrian but he got up so I hit him again

    I pulled away from the side of the road, glanced at my mother-in-law and headed over the embankment.

    The other car collided with mine without giving warning of its intention.

    I collided with a stationary truck coming the other way

    A truck backed through my windshield into my wifes face

    A pedestrian hit me and went under my car

    In an attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telephone pole.

    I had been shopping for plants all day and was on my way home. As I reached an intersection a hedge sprang up obscuring my vision and I did not see the other car.

    I was on my way to the doctor with rear end trouble when my universal joint gave way causing me to have an accident.

    An invisible car came out of nowhere, struck my car and vanished.

    I was thrown from the car as it left the road. I was later found in a ditch by some stray cows.

    Coming home I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I dont have.

    I thought my window was down, but I found it was up when I put my head through it.

    The guy was all over the road. I had to swerve a number of times before I hit him.

    I had been driving for forty years when I fell asleep at the wheel and had an accident.

    As I approached an intersection a sign suddenly appeared in a place where no stop sign had ever appeared before.

    To avoid hitting the bumper of the car in front I struck a pedestrian.

    My car was legally parked as it backed into another vehicle.

    I told the police that I was not injured, but on removing my hat found that I had a fractured skull.

    I was sure the old fellow would never make it to the other side of the road when I struck him.

    The pedestrian had no idea which way to run as I ran over him.

    I saw a slow moving, sad faced old gentleman as he bounced off the roof of my car.

    The indirect cause of the accident was a little guy in a small car with a big mouth.

    The telephone pole was approaching. I was attempting to swerve out of the way when I struck the front end.

    The gentleman behind me struck me on the backside. He then went to rest in a bush with just his rear end showing. "

    I had been learning to drive with power steering. I turned the wheel to what I thought was enough and found myself in a different direction going the opposite way.

    I was backing my car out of the driveway in the usual manner, when it was struck by the other car in the same place it had been struck several times before.

    When I saw I could not avoid a collision I stepped on the gas and crashed into the other car.

    The accident happened when the right front door of a car came round the corner without giving a signal.

    No one was to blame for the accident but it would never have happened if the other driver had been alert.

    I was unable to stop in time and my car crashed into the other vehicle. The driver and passengers then left immediately for a vacation with injuries.

    The pedestrian ran for the pavement, but I got him.

    I saw her look at me twice. She appeared to be making slow progress when we met on impact.

    The accident occurred when I was attempting to bring my car out of a skid by steering it into the other vehicle.

    My car got hit by a submarine. (The Navy informed the wife of a submariner that the craft was due in port. She drove to the base to meet her husband and parked at the end of the slip where the sub was to berth. An inexperienced ensign was conning the sub and it rammed the end of the slip, breaking a section away, causing her car to fall into the water. The Navy paid the compensation claim.
