    Re: 30 may

    hiya all...how are we then today?all good I hope ...well yesterday
    was definitely a bad day at black rock for me ..in the front garden messing about rabbits out the back ,I had the garage door open...a roller shutter type finished what I was doing, and pressed the down button garage door ..walked away a length of perspex fell into the path of the door and jammed it..stopped it coming down..instead of cutting out ,the motor kept running unravelling the shutter ..out of the guides...door now is jammed completely open with it all unravelled at an angle .I then tried to free it so that I could at leas shut the door ..part of it did so ,but it grabbed my hand on the way down ..nearly took my hand in ..Almost time to go to a second hand shop!I snatched it away few cuts n scratches ..It gets better!bearing in mind the front of the motorhome is about 8 inches away from the swinging door edge decided to move the van ..reversed it ..straight into the anti theft post thats behind it ..cracked the fibre glass below number plate..I phoned around everywhere to get someone out to repair door but on a Friday? Eventually got a crew who came through last night ..they had been on a job till about 5 .They questioned the door on the following ..

    The roller slats were fitted upside down ..they can gather water the way they are in .
    you should not be able to walk away from the door it should be either remoted or button operated .
    There is no brake on the door to stop it rolling and gathering up
    There is no fail safe edge
    A couple of the plastic edges are snapped

    Time for a new door .

    On the van side..a friend that did some work on my last van,is gong to fix it for me .

    so that was yesterday ..If I had been drinking ..yesterday would have been a bender day..on a positive note ...it was sunny .and also the pollen count was lower ..


    hope everyone is good have a great weekend
    af since the fourth of July 2012...howzat then America..now proudly marching into year 5..done that one..now bimbling into year 6..tick ..done that one too..as he casually strolls into numero 7


    CHILDHOOD IS LIKE BEING DRUNK.EVERYONE REMEMBERS WHAT YOU DID,EXCEPT YOU.

    MAE ALL...

    TG...wow, you have been busy and I concur the website is beautiful. The co-worker did step up and I completed all program and website updates this morning. After this I'm shutting the laptop down.

    Lav...glad you didn't have a disaster on your hands and the clean up was quick. Oooh big thunder boom...no rain yet. Did finish off things for Monday opening but now I'm done and hoping this thunder turns into a wicked storm. I have nothing I'd have to clean up afterwards. LOL

    Mick...wow, what an ordeal. I was a little nervous reading about your hand so I'm glad it's ok. Did you put the garage door in yourself? Asking for a friend. Glad you're able to get some help with the van. So, what are you going to do next Friday?

    Pauly...glad the drama didn't include you. I think everyone's nerves are a bit stretched these days.

    Just waiting for the rain to start and then turning on the nintendo, I think it's time for some Mario. LOL Have a Super Saturday all....PPQP

    Helllo all,

    Mick, OMG that was a complete sh*t show you described, geez!!! Good thing you’re not a drinking man
    Stuff can be fixed but personal injury is more of a concern. Hope the hand is OK. And just so you know I’m not always steady on my feet either, old head injuries do that to a person.
    I hope the rest of the weekend is much improved! Take care!

    Pauly, I can’t even imagine what these women have to fight about. What’s the big deal? Just go to work, do your job & go home!! Glad you were spared that BS.

    PQ, be careful what you wish for, haha! The problem around here is so many overgrown trees hanging over power lines so when we have these storms we lose power easily. The electric company spends a good portion of the year trimming people’s trees because most are too lazy or too cheap to get it done themselves. Glad you’re all caught up with work.

    Cyn, hope your day is going well!

    Hello to Sam, Det & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!
    Lav

    arg! girly meltdown last night replete with her flipping out and getting verbally and physically violent, then they went out for a 'drive and chat' and I walked to the corner store and got 4 beers which I slammed in short order.
    son of a freaking biscuit! I'm so mad at myself, and her. and probably other things. Had one drink today. stopped. staying stopped. i just got a text from Darlene saying girly has agreed to therapy. by dog I hope that actually happens.
    Haven't been sleeping in days, crap appetite, horrid anxiety... the writing was on the wall and I didn't get it. Making calls for group therapy as i really miss it. I just need support beyond what I can get here.
    sorry gang. just trying to hang on here.
    I hope you are all enjoying the weekend.
    Love

    Det
    Sorry everything went to shit. You've been dealing with a lot and the girly situation doesn't help.
    You're right, the writing was on the wall, and I know that F it attitude, but so glad to hear you've stopped.
    Hope you find a group for therapy as it's worked in the past and seems to be what you like.
    You're right about support beyond what you can get at home. They may love us but they haven't walked in our shoes.
    You hang in there and reach out to us instead of the corner store..... PPQP

    Dear Det you've got this! I agree that it would be great to find a group or meditation where you are... trying to handle all the things that you have been handling is SO hard by yourself... and our families don't always "get" how to be there for us, or how to NOT compound difficulties. Sending you huge vibes for best of luck and some REST and good connections with sober people. We know you can do it!

    Mick, holy cow, what a day!!! I don't care about anything except you are okay... the rest is just stuff... annoying, but still just stuff. glad the rabbits were nowhere near that door! Hope you can take a break and enjoy the fruits of your labor... have you found another good author to read?

    Pauly, sorry for the little dramas at work, but glad that you are able to be back at the shop seeing people. Hang in there --

    Lav, my normal BP is around 110/something low... one doctor wondered if I could "fog a mirror"! Maybe you seeing a cardiologist would be good... maybe the bit of virus yougot in the vaccine did some heart damage, who knows, that evil thing is so bizarre... good luck! Sorry about the hot weather... it's even hot up here at 6,000 feet, so strange.

    Glad to hear some Nintendo and Mario is in the works for you PPQ - congrats on taking some time off!

    Today was a sweet day, somehow a friend knew it was my birthday, and we had a lovely lunch overlooking the lake. Another friend sent flowers, so I was well cared for. Glad, because yesterday I could see the signs that my sweet elderly dog is failing... so we are entering a Hospice phase here... managing my emotions okay so far... glad that i can work from home and just be with him...

    Sending all love and light and strength...
