    Greetings friends,

    The humidity has left - praise the lord, LOL
    Nice to be able to sit or walk outside without all the sweat for a change
    Yep Mick, I finished the embroidery job, all went well. In my spare time today I opened a chicken spa for injured kids chickens in my laundry room, haha! I found one of my girls so severely pecked at she was bleeding today. So I soaked her in a warm bubble bath, she almost fell asleep she was so relaxed. I set up separate quarters for her for a few days so hopefully she will heal up. Chickens can be mean as hell to one another but never to me. Glad you got a nice long walk in, it should help your back. I did not know about the prison treadmills but I guess I guess it makes sense. I don’t do any running on it just a leisurely 2 mph walk, it’s enough.

    Hello to PQ, hope your weekend is wonderfully relaxing.

    Cyn, hope you are resting up too for your soon to be long trip back to the right coast

    Hello to Det, Pauly, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice evening everyone.

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

    Mae all -

    Got to Napa and back in one piece... I am pleased to announce that my new-to-me car (now named "Bluette", because of the color) is apparently raring to go... she loves the higher-paced hiway driving, and is all-in for scaling the heights,- lots of "Get up and Go" for which I am grateful - there will be lots of trucks that I will have to outrun or or out-maneuver on this next trip. I am calling my garage tomorrow (specializes in German brands), hoping to get her in for a look-see and oil change. Crossing fingers.

    Lav, I got a shock this early AM while visiting my SD, and she came out of her room with the "llama-ste" hoodie... I forgot that you had made one for her! She says that it is her favorite for the early-morning dog walks... 😉 Sorry to hear about the poor chicken... good for you for tending to her. I guess "hen-pecked" is a reality?! Take care - (PS -how's the BP?)

    Mick, glad to hear you are walking... hope you feel okay after the walk. I am engrossed in this book... I'm glad I know the outcome, but it is still a page-turner... by the way, a few weeks ago I found on Acorn a lovely set of video travelogues by some Brit broadcaster... he walks several miles in one part of England or another, telling the history of the area. One of them is about Dover, and how they used early radar there to intercept the German forces and all the ways they protected Dover during WWII. And now in this book I'm reading about the German system of crossing radar signals they used to guide their planes ... All very fascinating...

    PPQ, it sounds like there is a lot of change going on... good luck!
    Pauly, how's things? I have not checked FB in an age... sorry if I am missing your posts there...
    Det - how are you getting along? I always admire you making lovely food in the midst of all else that you do..,

    Hello to Sam and all others - wishing all well --

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

    Good evening friends,

    Enjoying this cooler & drier weather finally!! I thought summer was never going to end, haha! I hear the farmer’s almanac or someone is predicting a harsh winter. I really don’t care, I can deal with that much easier than all the nasty heat. Just back from my walk down the road with Matilda. She comes back breathless but I don’t

    Cyn, sounds like you got just the right car, cool! I wish you & Bluette a long & happy relationship
    It’s not quite cool enough here to pull out the sweatshirts but when I do the purple Llama-ste will probably be the first. My granddaughter asked for one in her size when she saw mine, haha.
    My bP is still a work in progress. The Cardiologist I saw last week took me off 2 meds & added another. He’s also pushing me to walk more so I’m now getting a minimum of 60 minutes walking time daily. Good thing i don’t have a real job anymore, haha. My chicken is doing OK, I brought her in for another warm bath this afternoon. She’s just now starting to eat & drink a little. I swear I think she was suffering PTSD in addition to the physical wounds. I’m keeping her alone probbaly for at least a week before i put her back in with the mean girls.

    Mick, you had frost? Wow, that’s kinda early isn’t it? It would be for us.
    I believe I have several bullies in the flock & I may end up giving them a ride to the Amish farm. I can’t keep letting them attack the smaller girls. There’s another smaller bird with most of her tail feather pulled out as well. Why can’t they just be nice & get along? Lol

    PQ, I hope today was relatively quiet at work. If you need a mean chicken to do some pecking up there I can ship a few to you, hahah!!

    Det, I saw your FB post today - beautiful work, goodness!!

    Pauly, what’s up?

    Hello to Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all.

    MAE ALL...

    A very peaceful weekend. Ended up binge watching Harry Potter. Now it's time to get back to reality.

    TG...glad the car is to your liking. When do you head East again?

    Mick...frost here this morning as well. Time to start thinking about putting the gardens to bed for the winter. It feels like we just started. I sure hope we can have a "normal" growing season next year. Very quiet at work today, no boss and no prog coord. Heaven!

    Lav...our winter is supposed to be a harsh one too. I can believe it after the heat we had this summer. I do believe climate change is making everything extreme. It's voting day for the Federal Election. With the amount of mail in ballets and the closeness of the 2 leading parties it could be days before we know the outcome. I think I better pass on the pecking chickens, trying to keep a low profile till after Oct 1st.

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

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

    Thank you Mick - great videos to enjoy... though the one over Dover Castle made me a little dizzy! Good luck on all your travel plans... maybe a drone photo thing would be fun... though it seems to take some training... Det can probably fill you in!

    Lav, sorry for the drama in the hen-house... I think I would just move the meanies along, as you suggest... poor terrified chicken! PS I saw a video somewhere of a hawk attacking a chicken, but it was saved by a rooster and a goat coming to her rescue! I thought of you - - glad that hasn't happened this year (at least I hope it hasn't happened...)

    Det, I am "determined" to find your FB page ... sounds like you are making beauty happen, good for you.

    PPQ, quiet around the office sounds just like what you deserve!! Hope it continues...

    Watch for the full harvest moon tonight!! I hope all are well --

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

    hiya all...just a quick jump in ,waiting for the insurance company to ring back ...what a performance.they sent me the renewal docs this morning,to check ..Ive already had discussions that they were too dear so they requoted a premium that was more acceptable ...looking at the documents they have quote me on the wrong size of engine ..told them and they said that the change would cost another 50.I already had a cheaper quote elsewhere so they are going to see how they are and if they can rematch it .They keep going on about waiving their fee,,fine do it ...Im sure they arent going to give me insurance for nothing and they will starve
    I see Biden has said that Brits can travel to America as from November..providing they have been double jabbed ...but not including Astra Zeneca..now most of the population over here was vaccinated in the main with that ..Now I appreciate that I am not American ,and also recognise that Trump wasnt the best for your country ...but Biden imo was the best of the ugly sisters ..he certainly isnt giving the world an enthusiastic face .
    We are looking at the possibilty of food shortages over here..why ? one of the things is the shortage of drivers ,but also the increase in the price of energy costs .thee is also a gas shortage and one of the by products is carbon dioxide ...used for stunning animals prior to slaughter ,that includes chickens turkeys and cattle .And also fizzy pop etc ..just shows how fragile our economy is and what its based on .

    teegee hiya ...its a vw isnt it? German ..should that not be blauette?yep the drone pics are superb ,as you say takes a bit to get used to .we shall see.saw the harvest moon ..it was really smart .

    hiya Lav ...anti bullying strategy ...off they go to the Amish man who fixes it!hey you can come walking with me ..take care of yourself .

    hiya ppqp ...hows you ?Harry Potter? Julie watches that over and over again ...its her fave films .no boss no nothing? your own little heaven ...its crazy one day it looks like hibernation for the garden ..the next they are blooming .oh well have a good day ..

    right lets get this insurance done take care

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

    Mae all - early checkin... will be working later. Finally was able (because I have a car) to get to the festival office and do some work... orinted out a ton of stuff... making progress on my plan to get out of here next week some time. I feel anxious to get on the road, though it is terribly sad without furry my car-buddy. Sorry if I am repeating myself....

    Finished off the Churchill book last night, and NO MORE engrossing books until I have everything else done... I stay up way too late reading...

    Hoping all are well - Mick good luck with the insurance company... I thought I had a policy that was too full of things that I didn't need, but thank heaven's I went for the broker's suggestions... that policy has covered so much of my health bills, and I am grateful... do yourself a favor, and don't skimp! This will be your "home on wheels" and you should be safe...

    Lav, how is your chicken patient doing? I hope a little less stressed... how is the weather.? Did the cool spell stay?

    Okay, off to do more tasks... cheers all ...

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

    Good evening friends,

    Sitting outside being buzzed by all the bees looking for the hummingbird feeders I put away last week, haha! Time for them to go somewhere else I think.
    Thursday is supposed to be a big rain day for us, oh well. Cooler air to follow, thankfully.

    PQ, glad you had a nice day yesterday, hope today was quiet too.
    So, do you think we should trade our cars in for sleds for the winter? I think we should just stay home & make a lot of soup, haha!

    Cyn, my chicken looks better today & is finally moving around & eating. She’s made no attempt to lay an egg for the past 3 days, don’t blame her either. This summer a hawk made the mistake of landing inside their fenced yard & my chickens ripped the thing to shreds. We walked around in there picking up hawk parts - geez. They must have been really pissed off. I’m kinda glad they can take care of themselves. Since I can’t be standing out there all day. I saw that moon last night, wow but I was able to sleep.

    Mick, insurance companies are a necessary evil. We changed companies when we moved here when I found out that the rates are cheaper here in cow country. I use the same company for homeowners & auto insurance now - it’s great. Good luck getting that sorted out. We are looking at possible supply shortages here as well. YB wants me to stock up on everything but I’m not feeling that paranoid just yet. They are even talking about kids toys being in short supply & people should be doing their Christmas shopping now, ugh.

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

    Have a nice night all!
