    MAE ALL...

    Mick...thanks for kicking us off again this week. The bird was just christening the new wheels! LOL I did do a little bit of work yesterday when I realized I hadn't included the "legal covid clause" in the rental agreements. So redid them and sent them out so we're good to go tomorrow. Gorgeous day today so I've been out walking through the fallen leaves and now am watching some of my taped season premieres. Keep thinking the bathroom could use a good cleaning but it can wait. LOL

    T-5 starting tomorrow. Hoping everyone's had a good weekend....PPQP

    Re: 26 September

    Sunday evening greetings to all.

    We had another beautiful, just perfect day here. My grandson accompanied me on my walk this morning without any complaints - miracle, haha! He was finally picked up around 4 pm by his mother-owner, Lol

    Mick, it’s fun keeping a new vehicle clean until it isn’t haha. My car is so dusty right now it isn’t even funny. The minute I wash it it gets covered with dirt & dust from all these farms around here.
    Glad your weekend has been quiet & pleasant.

    PQ, It’s so nice to walk when the weather is pleasant. The summer was so awfully hot I just couldn’t deal with it so I didn’t go.
    How come you’re doing work on the weekend??? Stop that haha!!

    Cyn, hope you are doing well.

    Same to Pauly, Det, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all.

    Mae all,

    Good to hear of the good weather and nice walks. I took a couple of stops on my way home today from Napa, and walked some each time, so I am feeling better after this trip than last weekend. Lav, no lines in the west for Walmart... I stopped on the way back and got a nice back support, fancy tire pressure gauge with ability to inflate tires, and an aerosol "fix tire" thing. Trying to be prepared. I always take a break after each 2 hour stint, and never go below a half a tank of gas, but I am preparing myself to be extra-vigilant about getting gas on the way east... sounds like it might be harder to find as I go.

    Mick, sounds like the van is all set - do you have a destination in mind for the next stop? Kudos to Bonnie, whatever she did.

    PPQ, glad you knocked out what you had to... good luck with the coming week...

    Det, hope all is well in Dets-ville, and that you scored some gigs to make up for the other one...

    Pauly, it would be great for you to give a quick update... I am hopeless at social media right now!

    Wishing all a great week - will let you know how things are shaking out...

    Cheers -

    Re: 26 September

    Monday evening greetings,

    Another nice day here but it looks like Mick’s rain will be making an appearance tomorrow.
    I convection roasted some turkey tenderloins today so we have something to eat this week. I think another pot of soup will be in the makings this week too

    Cyn, I have one of those tire inflators in my car too but haven’t needed it yet. It does give you a little peace of mind though.
    Glad to hear you’re getting a little walking in as well. You’ll be in good shape for your long ride home, nice.

    Mick, I filled my gas tank today & noticed the cost was up about 30 cents/gallon since my last fill up. They get you coming & going I swear. The post office has announced they are planning even slower deliveries than what we have now & the cost of stamps is going up again. Supposedly they have bee operating in the red - whose fault is that? Not ours!!

    Pauly, good to see you. What’s keeping you busy lately? Watching kids? I’m still getting pulled back into that once in a while, haha!
    I’ve gotten a few messages this summer from SK. I’m a little confused about her current situation but she’s recovering from a stroke I believe & not driving, using ride share services, etc.

    Hello to Det who is probably busy doing something interesting

    Hello to Sam & Pie too.

    Have a nice night all.

    Re: 26 September

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...nice that your grandson went with you on your walk yesterday. What, he didn't stay for supper? LOL OK, the only reason I did the work on the weekend is I really wanted to get this one group set up for their Tuesday class. If she could get everything back to me on Sunday I could get the boss to sign off on it today. Which I accomplished. It's supposed to be cooler tomorrow with possible rain so it's good timing for them to come back in the building.

    TG...sounds like you've got everything in order for your trip. Will definitely have to practice my deep breathing this week. You can just see the frustration levels growing with everyone. You let us know when you head out so we can all keep an eye on you.

    Pauly...always good to see you post. Glad everything is same old and there's no drama in your life.

    Mick...your gas woes was on the new this evening. If it's not one thing it's another. There was a reason for doing tomorrow's work yesterday as I explained to Lav. I'm glad I did, this group has been with us for 25 years and I really didn't want her going somewhere else. I've already lost one long term group. Boss is in all week. He asked the accountant for his 3 week vacation pay and I thought she was going to loose it. Our fiscal year started Sep 1st and she didn't think he deserved it. LOL

    Time to turn the old brain off and play some mindless computer gangs. Hope we all have a good night....PPQP

    Re: 26 September

    Mae all -

    Busy days here getting ready to leave Tahoe... thank goodness. I will be returning most of that tire (tyre) stuff I bought, as I found out yesterday when I had the oil changed and the car checked out (all good!) that I need a new set of tires. So down to Reno I go today for that. So happy that I have held onto the "extra" money from the purchase of the car... I have bought an Extended Warranty policy for a year, covering major things like engine, etc., and now the extra money will pay for tires. So I should truly be good to go. (And yes Ted, I have a spare tire, but thx for the reminder... I will have them check it to see if it is viable and filled with air.)

    So, just continually packing, donating and mailing things off to people. I keep wondering how, (even though I have embraced a minimalist life)
    I still have stuff to deal with. Ah well, I guess it is like peeling the layers of an onion... there always seems to be another layer!

    Lav, I love the food ideas, fall is in the air. Mick, mmmm Wales. I am reading du Maurier's "Rebecca" right now, so my mind is in Cornwall, but Wales sounds wonderful as well. Pauly, so great to hear from you! Glad to know that you are there, keeping on... thx for dropping in! PPQ, good luck with keeping your sanity in this transition! Det, hoping all is well, and the gifs are filling in. Greetings to all else. Wishing good vibes for us all...
