    Friday August 6

    I’m starting a new thread because someone ‘closed’ the August 1 thread. Not sure how or why that happened.

    Everything is just fine with me, not much new going on

    PQ, you better take your vacation time or I’ll come up there & kick someone’s a$$, LOL
    I hated when I worked full time & wasn’t allowed to take my vacation time. An extra paycheck doesn’t really cut it if you know what I mean.

    Mick, glad you made it home safely! The ‘turn around don’t drown’ quote we hear from our weather forecasters makes good sense. Our heatwave is back so we will probably end up getting some thunderstorms over the next few days.

    Det, glad you are keeping busy & things are moving along in a positive way.
    Coming up with meal ideas drives me plain old crazy anymore. That’s half the reason I’m making more & more vegan dishes ~ something different. Tonight I baked a vegan tomato tart with cashew ‘ricotta’, yummy.

    Hello to Cyn who I know is super busy right now.

    Hello Pauly, Sam & Pie. Hope everyone is well.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...wow, isn't that interesting. I know that other than the Administrators, the Thread Starter can close it...Mick, did you inadvertently do something? Maybe they didn't like the title? I didn't see anything offensive in any of the posts. Oh well, just another one of those life mysteries. Was talking to a couple of coworkers that were actually in today and they said the same thing, take your time off and to hell with them. LOL Will go in on Monday, ask the boss my questions and then tell him that as of Wednesday, I'm off till Sep 1st. Will let you know how that goes. LOL

    Det...I am going to totally tune out from work. I have signed up for some mental health workshops including smoking cessation. Going to spend my time working on me. I may not know the "satori moment" but I do believe I know what that epiphany felt like. So happy for you. I've been experimenting in the kitchen and when I cooked up some purple beans from the garden they turned green. Who knew!

    Mick...oh no, I remember your sunburned eyelids. Didn't realize you were still suffering, glad you got it sorted out. Sorry about the treatment ordeal. I'm proud of you for resisting the dutch babies and saving your marriage. LOL Just so you know I added water and my kids yelled at me.

    The smoke covering my part of the city was extreme today. The worst it's been, could even smell it in the community centre. Hope the forecasted rain for Sunday comes through. Thinking of the rest of the gang. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: Friday August 6

    Greetings friends,

    Cloudy today but not too awfully hot, yay!
    I ended up with my grandsons here because their mother is visiting relatives out of state & their dad was called into work. I think this is the 2nd time they’ve been here this summer which is crazy considering they live 7 miles away, haha! The oldest has turned into a night owl & sits up all night playing online games. He was dragged out of bed, dropped off here around 2 pm, fell back asleep & slept thru dinner. I have to take him home at some point to feed all their animals - if I can wake him LOL

    PQ, there was nothing offensive on the other thread so it remains a mystery.
    I’m glad you’re making plans to take your time off & do something nice for you!!! That’s awesome

    Mick, sorry about the eyelid situation, sounds painful. I swear the older we get the weirder things get. Hope it heals up quickly!
    I have a feeling we will soon be back in some sort of lockdown here with the positivity case #s being so high. They are comparing current caseloads with those of last winter
    Why don’t people stop f’ing around & just get the vaccines?
    I see Shue often on FB, looks like she’s doing well.

    Hello to Cyn, Pauly & Det! Hello to Sam & Pie too.

    Have a nice night all. I’’m going to try to wake this kid again so he can go home & feed his animals.

    Hiya all..just thought we could keep this Fred going..started out metal detecting this morning but the weather was that bad we had to turn back, and it hasn't stopped yet. The field out the back is flooding, but no great shake in the garden,it's doing well.Eyes seem to be improving though vision is a bit blurry .I just want to keep my eyes shut.its more irritating and annoying rather than painful now. Hope we are all doing well..does anyone need any water?we are away on Thursday..hope it clears up for that take care everyone and stay safe

    Good evening friends,

    Sunny & warm again, sorry Mick, haha!!
    I returned the younger grandson to his owner by lunchtime so now I’m just picking up the crumbs he always leaves behind.

    Mick, your detecting day was ruined, sorry about that. Hope the eyes heal up very soon. Where are you heading on Thursday?
    It’ s been another no vacation summer for me but that’s fine. I have plenty of wildlife around here to keep me entertained. I have an appointment Tuesday I think with my NP to check on my BP. Still not textbook perfect but better & not scary high. I guess if I had continued with my bad habits (drinking & smoking) I could very well not even be here. So I’ll just keep trying to improve the #s.

    Hello to Cyn, PQ, Det, Pauly, Sam & Pie. Hope everyone is doing well.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...sorry to hear you had to cancel the detecting, weather everywhere is just crazy. Glad the garden is holding up. Hope your eyes clear up soon, that's so annoying.

    Lav...glad your BP is not scary high. It's been overcast all day and is just starting to spit out there. Wish we'd get an old fashioned thunderstorm. Feeling a little out of sorts today, not sure why.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang....have a good night....PPQP

    big shout to everyone else ...

    A husband and wife were having dinner at a very fine restaurant when this absolutely stunning young woman comes over to their table, gives the husband a big kiss, says she'll see him later and walks away. His wife glares at him and says, "Who the hell was that?" "Oh," replies the husband, "she's my mistress." "Well, that's the last straw," says the wife. "I've had enough, I want a divorce." "I can understand that," replies her husband, "but remember, if we get a divorce it will mean no more shopping trips to Paris, no more wintering in Barbados, no more summers in Tuscany, no more Infinities and Lexuses in the garage and no more yacht club. But the decision is yours." Just then, a mutual friend enters the restaurant with a gorgeous babe on his arm. "Who's that woman with Jim? " asks the wife. "That's his mistress," says her husband. "Ours is prettier," she replies.

    Greetings friends,

    If you want to know a possible reason I have high blood pressure - this could be responsible:

    AF7F0262-4F25-4067-B504-48C8BE5C7E3B.jpg

    I thought we were done with these things for the summer ~ guess not. YB wasn’t home at the time so I just left it alone. By the timE he got home the snake & 2 of the 3 eggs were gone, haha!! I guess it will be back tomorrow looking for more, LOL

    PQ, hello to you & I hope you’re `feeling OK today. I am going to see my NP tomorrow & see what she wants to do with my meds at this point. Take it easy!

    Mick, no rain here either although my daughter just said they had a lot today, go figure. I hope your eyes are healing as fast as possible.

    Pauly, hello to you as well.

    Hello to Det, Sam & Pie.

    Feel like temps this week going to 105, yuck. I’m ready for the next season.
    Wishing everyone` a nice night.
