    Re: 30 may

    Hello all - goodness, I was sure that I posted a day or two ago... but I see nothing... sorry!

    Busy weekend working, then drove on Sunday 3 hours away to be with step-daughter, then drove back yesterday... really took the starch out of me! And didn't do a lot of good for my back, but we weren't together last year on Memorial Day when her dad passed, and I was determined that we spend some time together... it was healing...

    Glad to hear that all the gardens are thriving. I remember well when I had a house, and could barely keep a couple of cherry tomatoes pots going on my porch... I had great desires to garden, but... probably all for the best...

    PPQ, that's Vegas weather! Lav, hoping the hurricanes miss you...Pauly, good luck with the man at home , Mick, hoping your weather behaves and that the peskies don't overdose on the grass... Det and all,others, hoping you are well.

    I can hardly keep my eyes open, so o guess it's time for bed... night all, sleep tight...

    Re: 30 may

    Good evening friends,

    Love the boxed bunny Mick, hahha!!
    The sun didn’t really arrive until just now so it won’t be here too long. Rain & storms tomorrow ~ swell.

    PQ, maybe you just need a scarecrow at the garden. Something that lights up & makes a lot of noise when someone approaches after hours, LOL
    Despite restrictions & mask mandates being dropped here I wore a mask at a few stops I had to make today& I’m not the only one. I’ll feel safe when I feel safe & that’s all there is to it I guess.

    Cyn, glad you got to see your SD. Shame she didn’t do the driving though. I hope you have rested up since.
    I really don’t get involved with the vegetable gardening here, that’s YB’s thing. Flowers make me happier anyway haha!

    Hello to Pauly & Det, Sam & Pie.

    Hope everyone has a nice night!

    MAE ALL...

    TG...I'm glad you were able to make the trek to see your step daughter, I'm sure it was healing for both of you. Sorry it put a strain on your back. Reminded me of when I drove 8hrs to and 8hrs back for my sisters funeral only to discover I had a collapsed lung and ended up in hospital for 2 weeks. It was still worth the trip to say goodbye. Nope, Vegas weather hit today at 91F, made me think of Pauly. You take it easy and rest up.

    Mick...hot here today as well. You just never stop do you! I'm surprised Julie is letting you build a table for the van. Didn't she say no reno's when you bought it? No results on the vandals in the garden yet but there is an open police report. The little twerps also dismantled part of our deck railing and broke a hall window to the tune of $900. We figure we know where they live (an apartment building) and one of our garden members lives there so is keeping an eye open. We just need to know where to point the police to.

    Lav...had to look at Mick's pic again after your comment on boxed bunny. LOL Hope the rain and storm is mild for you, ours is coming Friday night/ Saturday. Oooh, love the idea of a scarecrow for the garden. You've got me thinking of all kinds of things now. I'm with you with feeling safe when you feel safe. I'm wearing my mask and staying away from crowds. They've announced we can start booking for our 2nd vaccine dose, I'm not eligible till June 28th but will talk to my pharmacist before then. Boss announced he's taking holidays mid July so I'll be back in the office for awhile then.

    Early virtual meeting with the boss to set new rental/catering rates for the fall. He's expecting an onslaught of inquires with the restrictions being eliminated. Should be quick and easy as the prog coord isn't involved. LOL Thinking of the rest of the gang and wishing a peaceful evening to all....PPQP

    So this kid never says anything. He's ten years old and has never said a word his entire life. His parents are naturally overwrought with concern.

    They take him to specialists, they read books on psychology, they do everything they can to pique his interest, but nothing seems to work.

    They are literally at their wits end when one day at the dinner table, out of the blue, kid says -- "Soup's cold".

    Needless to say his parents are completely in shock and, of course, at the same time overjoyed. "He can talk", blurts out the Mom!

    Dad says, "After all this time, after all the therapy sessions, after everything we've done to try to get you to talk, how come you've never said anything"?

    Kid says, "Well, up until now everything's been fine".

    Ralph and Mary were sitting around the breakfast table one lazy morning. Ralph suddenly said, "Mary, if I were to die suddenly, I want you to immediately sell all my stuff".

    "Now why would you want me to do something like that" Mary asked?

    "I figure that you would eventually remarry, and I don't want some other jerk using my stuff..."

    "What makes you think I'd marry another jerk"?

    They spoke for a while and then Patrick said, "Father, can ya come closer, please".

    And so they spoke, but again, Patrick asked, "Forgive me Father, but can you come a little closer, I'd be havin' trouble hearing ya..."

    So again, the Priest came closer. But again, Patrick asked the Father to come closer.

    As my five year old son and I were headed to McDonald's one day, we passed a car accident. Usually when we see something terrible like that, we say a prayer for those who might be hurt, so I pointed and said to my son, "We should pray."

    From the back seat I heard his earnest request: "Please, God, don't let those cars block the entrance to McDonald's."

    A little girl was out with her Grandmother when they came across a couple of dogs mating on the sidewalk.

    "What are they doing, Grandma" asked the little girl?

    The grandmother was embarrased, so she said, "The dog on top has hurt his paw, and the one underneath is carrying him to the doctor".

    They're just like people, aren't they Grandma" said the little one?

    "How do you mean" asked the Grandma?

    "Offer someone a helping hand", said the little girl, "and they screw you every time"!

    All Three Were Wrong
    Two medical students were walking along the street when they saw an old man walking with his legs spread apart. He was stiff legged and walking slowly.

    One of the students said to his friend: "I'm sure the poor old man has Petry Syndrome. Those people walk just like that".

    The other student says: "No, I don't think so. The old man surely has Zovitzki Syndrome. He walks slowly and his legs are apart just as we learned in class".

    Since they couldn't agree they decided to ask the old man. They approached him and one of the students said to him: "We're medical students and couldn't help but notice the way you walk, but we couldn't agree on the syndrome you might have. Could you tell us what it is"?

    The old man said: "I'll tell you, but first you must tell me what you two fine medical students think".

    One of the students said: "I think it's Petry Syndrome".

    The old man said: "You thought....... But you are wrong".

    Then the other student said: "I think you have Zovitzki Syndrome".

    The old man said: "You thought........ But you are wrong".

    So they asked him: "Well, old timer, what do you have"?

    The old man said: "I thought it was gas........... But I was wrong"!

    Heya ABeroooos!

    My how times flies... egad. zipping like a real nutjob as always trying to figure out how to pay bills and market/bill/work/live all at once. It's not for whimpy folks that's for sure.
    Had a spectacular and physically demanding Memorial Day weekend of hiking with Darlene's cousins from WI and made it to the super cool timpanogos Cave which is a really neato
    national monument, then off to another hike another day to some high-elevation lakes in the mountains that were so darn pretty. I better find some of my pics to share soon.

    Mick, excellent crafting/building as always I see

    I see the rest of the gang is dealing with the same heat we've got here... popping into the triple digits tomorrow which is unusual for around here. And I have a black on black car with no functioning
    AC. yippeeee! oh well. at least the bloody thing runs.

    Got one of my cameras back from the shop all fixed-up so that's a relief. Anyhoo.... off to figure out something to feed the ladies....

    be well loves!

    Re: 30 may

    Greetings friends,

    Big storm going on at the moment. We have flood, hail, heavy wind & even tornado warnings up - geez!
    I’m staying put &hoping the chickens were smart enough to go inside, haha!

    PQ, our stormy weather is supposed to be followed by a heat wave, haha. Sounds like a bad joke
    I really would at least set up a motion activated flood light & some sort of noisy alarm system to scare off those little turds. I don’t have a whole lot of patience these days, Lol
    Hope you can get your 2nd vaccine asap. We had to have the two Moderna doses 4 weeks apart. Stay safe no matter what!

    Mick, we’re supposed to be getting about 3” of rain from this storm. We don’t need it, really!
    I hope all the grass & tree pollens drown tonight so I can get a break from sneezing, haha!

    Det, saw your cave pics on FB - very cool!! Not sure I’m good for hiking to see those things anymore so I’ll enjoy your photography
    We’ll have to collect donations to get your AC fixed in your black car - geez that sounds hot!! Keep up the great work!

    Hello to Cyn, Pauly, Sam & Pie. Hope everyone is OK.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 30 may

    MAE ALL...

    Busy day yesterday starting off with a virtual meeting with the boss. Time to figure out opening strategy in regards to availability/cost of facility room rentals, increasing rent on our long term clients, catering menu updates, etc. If the boss calls for a one hour meeting you have to plan for 21/2 hours at least. At the end he said he had to run and I said wait, we haven't talked about website updates and programs (the prog coord hasn't updated anything). So he scheduled another meeting in the afternoon, that's a total of 5 hours I'll never get back. LOL At least I was heard and got a time commitment out of her. Just because she wants to go live on Monday why does that mean I have to work the weekend!

    Mick...our heat wave has ended and there is a chance of rain this weekend. I like the addition of the baseball bat. LOL Yup, going with gut instinct.

    Det...good to see you popping in, you are one busy man. It's nice that you were able to spend time with the cousins but it does sound physically exhausting.

    Lav...oh no, you got clobbered. Hope there's not too much damage. We debated the motion sensor flood lights but we're surrounded by apartment buildings and we get enough complaints about the lights on the tennis court and hockey rink. Can just imagine the complaints we'd get with rabbits setting off the flood lights all night.

    Got to get some breakfast before yet another virtual meeting with the boss this morning. Have a good day all....PPQP

    Re: 30 may

    Mae all, sorry to be away... the days are flying by as we get the early things for the concert season up to speed for the festival... website, contracts, sponsorships (my area), ticketing, fundraising. I must say the website is beautiful, if you care to look: classicaltahoe.org.

    Mick, the bunny-in-a-box almost looked like a garden ornament! So glad to see all of your hard work come to fruition. Good luck with the table... that sounds complicated.

    Lav, before I forget - how is your BP? Getting regulated? I was shocked when I went to Urgent Care that my BP was 175/98... that's a first. I guess pain can do that. Yikes, storms and heat and all sorts of weather for you. It is actually hot up here at 7,000'feet?! Mid-80s yesterday... I need to buy some summer clothes... didn't really bring much of that here. Hoping the weather sorts itself out and you get some sunny days...

    PPQ, good job on getting things ready to open... I hope the co-worker steps up and boss doesn't go AWOL! Take care -

    Det, so good to hear from you , wow that sounds like a lot of hiking, but beautiful... yikes on the car a/c... wishing you lots of good jobs flowing to you soon.

    Hello to Pie, Pauly, Sam and all others dropping by... wishing all the best...

    Re: 30 may

    Good evening friends,

    We had a ton of rain last night but no damage except for the mulch in my garden beds. It was washed out all over the place but I got it swept back into place this morning. We were supposed to have another storm this afternoon but it never arrived. Tomorrow begins a run of at least 5 days with temps. 90 & humid. You know I’ll be hanging out inside haha!

    Cyn, you have been a busy girl Glad things are coming along in Tahoe.
    Yes, pain will increase your B/P temporarily but I would keep an eye on it, just in case. Mine is wonderful in the morning & at dinner time but by 9:30-10 pm it’s up to 164/96 on average. It’s freaking ridiculous, I’ve tried everything I can think of to get it lower. May have to actually see a Cardiologist for an eval.

    PQ, maybe your place needs to hire a night time security service, just a thought!
    Don’t work this weekend, you deserve the time off. Get some R&R time in this weekend

    Mick, hope all is well with you!

    Hello to Pauly & Det, Sam & Pie.

    Have a n ice night all!
