    Re: the 19th of September. Its nearly Christmas.........

    Hiya everyone How are we today ? hope everyone is doing good. I finally got the insurers sorted out on the van yesterday. Definitely did not go for the cheap options, however there were things in the policy and quotation that werent needed. Today the alarm was fitted on the van and the immobiliser

    Hiya teegee How are you then? I'm sure you will pick up another book!!I think my reading record stands at 343 days in a row .hows the vobbly wobbly doing? . You take care

    Hiya lav How are you.? glad that the chicken �� is making progress. The perpetrators on their way to see the amish chappie? my old nick are looking for 3 rabbits..no not too tunnel out, but they have a pet area, so I've got a friend who is in charge of the rescue centre..so another 3 removed they look after them better than the crims.. oh dear.
    Julie made the decision last night ..she retires 31 March. Already been approached by other agencies to work or act on a consulting basis., but it doesn't interest her ...my doss days are over!!!!I had a policy that turned out superb when my head wobbled it had a critical care clause and I didn't even know..so yes I do understand between cheapskate and what is needed.
    Yes we have started getting bits and pieces together for a shortage just in case but not going mad.

    Hiya ppqp are you Then? Hope all is well.

    Big hello to everyone

    MAE ALL...

    TG...Quiet yesterday as well and down right dead today. Boss showed up, left and hasn't been back. LOL I bet you'll be happy to be on your way, maybe just a little sad without your car-buddy.

    Mick...isn't insurance fun! Glad you got it all sorted out. I think a lot of places are going to be dealing with food shortages. The one I've been hearing about is coffee. I will be stocking up on that. It's a cold miserable day here and that's not what they forecasted!

    Lav...as long as we don't drop to -22F and stay there, I'm looking forward to winter. Won't be as hard to stay in the house. With the way our covid cases are going it's going to be a scary winter. City council is holding a special meeting today to try and deal with the province's restriction exemptions. Hopefully they'll pass a bylaw and everyone will know what they're supposed to do.

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

    Re: the 19th of September. Its nearly Christmas.........

    Evening greetings everyone,

    Got back from my walk just in time for the skies to open up this afternoon. There’s been several heavy downpours so far & I think this is supposed to go on all day tomorrow as well. I guess I’ll be on the treadmill tomorrow to get my hour of walking time.
    YB is out making another evening trip to a produce auction in Lancaster county with one of his Amish customers. This particular guy is a prolific grower of almost anything, good skills.

    Mick, glad to hear your insurance & alarm issues are settled.
    We haven’t removed any mean chickens yet, the Amish guys are too busy right now getting all their crops harvested. When things slow down with them we’ll probably take a few older meanies over to them.
    Julie is smart to turn down future job offers, why would she want to do that? I remember getting a few job offers as I was leaving the hospital, I smiled & said NO THANKS, haha!
    I hope the 3 rabbits enjoyed their new quarters

    PQ, your day sounds pretty good - no one there, yay!
    I hope we can both enjoy our winter seasons without too much cold. It’s hard to believe this will be our second Covid winter. Whoever thought this BS would stick around so long & be as brutal as it has been?
    I want to see my kids & grandkids from time to time but other than that I just want to stay close to home anymore.

    Cyn, hope everything is OK with you? When do you plan to head back east?

    Hello to Pauly & Det, Sam & pie.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: the 19th of September. Its nearly Christmas.........

    Mae all -

    Glad to hear that everyone is plugging along!

    Lav, that's an incredible story about the chickens and the hawk... I guess it is good to have a few "meanies" in the bunch - it sounds like they got right to work on that hawk... sheesh, the cleanup must not have been at all fun. Good for you for doing your walking! I know that the treadmill isn't much fun, but glad that you have it for the rain times. Is your BP showing any signs of settling down? Hope so...

    PPQ, glad that work is quiet for you now - maybe you'll have a more pleasant autumn. How's the foot/leg?

    Pauly, would love to hear from you - I just don't have the energy to go on FB or IG right now to see your pics... hope all is well...

    Det - hope the works keeps rolling in, and that girly is behaving! Is she back to real in-school classes now? Masked? Good luck!

    Sam, I'm sure the harvest season is busy for you - good luck.

    Mick, wow - 45s!? Do you have one of those USB/needle record players? I never saw one until I visited my nephew's house (when I was doing that major organizing recently)... how amazing! Now I wish that I had saved some of my childhood 45s... All your plans sound terrific, and the van all decked-out. Congrats on Julie's news!!! Fantastic - you two are off and running (walking) now. PS, I'm pretty sure my VW has a French background... maybe she's from the Alsace region... so I'm sticking with Bluette...��

    I'm having the car looked over on Monday, then a last session with my wonderful Chiro on Tuesday, then will head out of here soon after that... so far the weather is holding well, so I should make tracks asap...

    Wishing all well and happy - take care -

    Re: the 19th of September. Its nearly Christmas.........

    Hidy Ho ABerooooodles!!

    jeepers, what a few days it's been in garlic-land. my PA job got postponed yet again which is just killing me as I've cancelled work to make time for it. waaaaa!
    And I spent the whole morning working on the stupid car and replacing the overly-complicated battery, but she's running again so I've succeeded.

    Tree, girly seems to be doing a bit better again and even showing signs of gratitude which is great. Yep, back in school and even though it's a large school they don't require maks
    and have had zero covid cases or bad illnesses which is great.

    Jeepers, I was mostly packed and ready to blast, so getting back into the realization that this work trip is probably doomed is something I'm still digesting. At least i have meditation/recovery class
    tonight so I'm sure that will help, as it always does.

    Mick, new vinyl? that's pretty darn groovy. There must be something wrong with me as I never listen to music...like... never. It's always just annoyed me for some reason. And you don't want to see me try
    to dance no rhythm here folks... move along....

    PPQ, I'm looking forward to winter also. we got a cold-front the last couple of days and it was so nice.

    Lav, did you get that bread recipe dialed-in?

    Pauly, hows crazy-town treating you?

    off to learn some new software tricks....

    be well loves!

    Re: the 19th of September. Its nearly Christmas.........

    Greetings friends,

    Well we’ve had 2” of rain today bringing us to a total of 80.8” for the year so far, GEEZ! There may be more later tonight but tomorrow is promised to be nice & dry

    Mick, you just cleared out unused stuff & now you’re replacing it with new purchases? Haha. Have fun with the 45’s, used to love them back in the day.
    Doing volunteer work can be very rewarding. I’ve donated tons of things I’ve stitched up at home, makes a person feel good todo that while helping others. My injured chick seems to be doing OK. I’ll consider putting her back in the flock in a few days I guess. I may pull a few of the meanies out so she can get settled again, we’ll see. Good luck with the van tomorrow.

    Cyn, glad to hear you return plan is in the works.
    Due to the rain Idid some treadmill time today but should do a little more tonight. I actually had a good BP day yesterday & this morning, will see what the evening brings. I know I’m doing all I can do at this point to help so I have to trust that’s enough I guess. I actually have a pic of the hawk wings the chickens pulled off intact - unbelievable, Lol

    Det, sorry about your business trip. Maybe something else will pop up to fill in that time. Stay focused, this probably falls under the sh*t happens category.
    I haven’t messed around with that bread. Recipe yet but i did make some pretty good low sodium tortillas today. Commercial tortillas have 380 mg of sodium, my homemade have 80 mg. I ordered up some 0 sodium baking powder today so when I make more they will have only 2 mg each. Good savings in the sodium department.

    Hello to everyone & wishing a nice night for all.

    Re: the 19th of September. Its nearly Christmas.........

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...I think Mick has figured out how to send his rain your way. I think it's a good idea to weed out some of those meanies before putting the injured chick back. Busier day today but in a good way for me. The rest of the staff is getting more frustrated as the boss's last day grows closer and more and more things haven't been dealt with.

    Mick...I liked Lav's comment: "Mick, you just cleared out unused stuff & now you’re replacing it with new purchases? Haha" And you wonder why you accumulate so much. My car registration is due just before Christmas but I've managed to pay monthly for my insurance. It's my way of a forced budget. LOL The City passed a bylaw mandating a Vaccine Passport, which in effect mandated all business to opt into the provincial restrictions exemptions program (which had originally been optional). In other words the boss now has to get off his ass and do something. LOL I'm currently working on our policy and procedure and am hoping to have my renters back in the building starting as early as next week.

    TG...the foot/leg is much better. I've been wearing a very mild compression stocking and it's really helped. No more excessive swelling. Something is still going on but I see my rheumatologist on Oct 4th so will see what she has to say. Sounds like the timing is right for your trip east, bet you can't wait.

    Det...on no! How frustrating! Mostly packed and ready to go and then BOOM! If it's only postponed I'd be really leery if they come knocking again. At least you've got a new battery for the winter. Glad you've got your meditation/recovery class tonight, you could probably use it.

    Hope all is good with the rest of the gang. Have a good night....PPQP

    Re: the 19th of September. Its nearly Christmas.........

    Evening greetings friends,

    Beautiful day here, just like a real Fall day
    I wound up driving one grandson to school today, the other had a friend’s mom pick him up. Now I have said grandson back here for the entire weekend. He’s already put away 10 lbs of food, haha!

    PQ, I think Mick better keep his rain to himself, geez! A lot of areas saw flooding yesterday. Glad to hear you’ve seen some improvement with the compression stocking. I’d like to know what the rheumatologist has to say as well. With RA things are usually happening bilaterally, not just on one side.
    Hope your boss gets off his a$$ & gets something done soon.

    Mick, good that your van is taken care of, now you can go anytime you feel like going. We have had the same deal with our gas stations - sometimes they’re just out of gas with the deliveries being delayed.
    My BP bounces around like a basketball - good some days & not so much on other days. Who knows??

    Cyn, we should be fully into our fall weather by the time you get back east. Wishing you a comfortable & safe drive back

    Hello to Det, Pauly, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!
