    Re: 29th

    Good evening Mick & friends,

    Kind of gloomy here but at least it’s not hot. I baked a vegan lasagne today & pretty much stayed glued to the TV so I could watch the track of hurricane Ida. She hit the gulf coast as a category 4 storm, very strong winds of 150 mph. I hope people survive this one.

    Glad your trip is going well Mick, sounds like fun!
    Tomorrow is the first day of school for the grandkids so I’m sure they’re just thrilled, haha!! I hope the boys perk up a little, they’ve been slugs all summer long.

    Hello to Cyn, hope you are safe!
    Hello to Pauly, PQ, Det, Sam & Pie.

    Keep your fingers crossed for those folks affected by this huge storm
    Have a nice night all.

    Hello Mick & everyone,

    We’ve been dodging thunderstorms all afternoon. Our share of the hurricane doesn’t arrive until Wednesday so I did run out to the stores for some necessities, just in case.
    The full hospitals in New Orleans are running on generators after the hurricane hit there. Scary situation.

    Mick, those are some funky looking little animals - meerkats?
    Glad your trip was good & I hope you have a safe trip home.
    Lucky me I have a dental appt in the morning to finally get that tooth finished up. Then i have an appt for Wednesday afternoon atthe hospital for a Dexa scan - may or may not go depending on the weather.

    Cyn, I see some of the Tahoe area is being evacuated & I hope you are safe

    Hello to all & wishing everyone a nice night!

    MAE ALL...

    I posted yesterday so I don't know what happened. It was a long day back at work, I'm going to have to get used to this again. Nothing has changed, nobody knows what's going on. Boss can't make up his mind, except he did say he wasn't honoring the new Sep 30th Federal Holiday. It's up to each province to honor them or not and Alberta said no. Our provincial leaders have been in hiding for 2 weeks now.

    Mick...too bad you ended up with rain on your last day. It sounds like you had a good time though. Safe travels home.

    Lav...been thinking of you with that crazy weather. Crossing my fingers you don't get hit with anything too bad. The pictures of New Orleans have been incredible. Good luck at the dentist at least that'll be done. Do you have far to go for the Dexa scan? I'm sure you won't be the only one cancelling if you have to.

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

    Anyway, I've been sacked by the fire brigade.

    I'm really pleased that our band has just signed a Jamaican triangle player.

    I went to Clarks today. I said " I'd like a par of crocodile shoes please". The assistant said "ok what size does your crocodile take".

    Re: 29th

    Good evening friends,

    Trip to the dentist was easy, was in & out of there in 15 minutes.
    Mostly gloomy again today in anticipation of crappy weather Wednesday & Thursday. Now they’re warning us about an extra threat of tornados & flooding in addition to large rainfall amounts. How swell is that???

    PQ, first back after vacation always sucks especially when they saved a shit ton of work for you. I don’t miss that. So the boss is still not bossing? Screw him, not your problem, right? Sounds like he needs to be replaced. My trip to the hospital for the scan is about 7 miles, same area as the dentist office. The trick is finding a way where the trees aren’t falling over on cars during a storm, haha! Maybe it won’t be too bad.

    Mick, glad you’re home safe & sound. I imagine the bunnies were happy to see you/
    Yes, my tooth now has a permanent filling so no more appointments for a while, hopefully.

    Hello to the rest of the crew. Cyn, I hope you are on your way home at this point

    Have a nice night all!

    Lav

    MAE ALL...

    Well, that's day 2 down and we open the building tomorrow. Kids also go back to school tomorrow so they will be in the building. My client renters aren't starting till the week of the 13th, wanted to get the childcare routine down before bringing more people in. Programs won't be starting till October and there are a lot of upset people. Instead of complaining to me they all phoned/emailed the board of directors. I do believe the boss is going to have a rough time at the Sep 17th board meeting.

    Mick...glad you're home safe and sound and that the peskies are healthy. Boy, you sure don't mess around, out with the old - in with the new. LOL Have you been to Bamburgh Castle before? Looks like a great place to see.

    Lav...if my dental visits were that easy I might just go. LOL We started out warm and sunny this morning but there's a huge thunder cloud over us now. Supposed to be raining tomorrow, of course, just to add more stress to parents. Your forecasted weather sounds scary, hope it isn't too bad. Yup, the boss is not my problem. I would feel bad when people came to me but I didn't have to deal with that this time. Strategic planning of my holidays. LOL I told one person before I went on holidays that if you're upset contact the board. They received 15 complaints. You play it safe for your trip to the hospital, remember you also have to make the return trip. I hear you about the trees. This is a very established neighbourhood and the trees are like canopies over all the roads that lead to the community centre.

    TG...been thinking of you especially after the latest news reports. I'm not sure where in Tahoe you are but by the pictures I've seen it doesn't look like it matters. I'm assuming you had to evacuate and I hope you are safe.

    The rest of you are always in my thoughts. Hope everyone is good. Have a nice night all...PPQP

    Re: 29th

    Hey friends,

    My phone has been blowing up with tornado & flood warnings for the past few hours. Close to `4” of rain so far & it’s not over yet. There’s lots of trees down & roads flooded in the area but nothing affecting us so far. My trip out & back was fine today, only had to dodge one tree limb across a road, not bad. There’s going to be a lot of cleanup needed around here tomorrow.

    PQ, with that many complaints coming in I’d say your boss is definitely going to have a hard time. He needs to take responsibility - he’s the boss.
    I hope your day was good & complaint free

    Mick, your insurance rates are a bit crazy. How do you figure it out?
    We just got the 4th tornado warning on our phones, ugh!! Think I’ll go hide out in the basement for a while.

    Hello to all & hope everyone is OK.
