    My wife had a right go at me for letting fireworks off when it's not even Halloween yet.
    If she keeps on, I'm going to take down the Christmas tree.

    Our neighbours are into feng shui and always look for flowing lines with no clutter.

    A: Benign is what you will be after you be eight.

    A young couple were on their honeymoon. The husband was sitting in the bathroom saying to himself, "How can I tell my wife that I've got really smelly feet and that my socks absolutely stink? I've managed to keep it from her while we dated, but she's bound to find out sooner or later."

    Meanwhile, the wife was sitting in the bed saying to herself, "How do I tell my husband that I've got really bad breath? I've been very lucky to keep it from him while we were courting, but as soon as he's lived with me for a week, he's bound to find out."

    The husband finally plucks up enough courage to tell his wife and so he walks into the bedroom. He walks over to the bed, puts his arm around her neck, moves his face very close to hers and says, "Darling, I've a confession to make."

    And she says, "So have I, love."

    To which he replies, "Don't tell me, you've eaten my socks."

    Halloween Party
    There's a man with a bald head and a wooden leg who gets invited to a Halloween party. He doesn't know what costume to wear to hide his head and his leg so he writes to a costume company to explain his problem. A few days later he received a parcel with the following note:

    Dear Sir:
    Please find enclosed a pirate's outfit. The spotted handkerchief will cover your bald head and, with your wooden leg, you will be just right as a pirate.
    Very truly yours,
    Acme Costume Co.

    The man thinks this is terrible because they have just emphasized his wooden leg and so he writes a letter of complaint. A week passes and he receives another parcel and a note, which says:

    Dear Sir:
    Please find enclosed a monk's habit. The long robe will cover your wooden leg and, with your bald head, you will really look the part.
    Very truly yours,
    Acme Costume Co.

    Now the man is really annoyed since they have gone from emphasizing his wooden leg to emphasizing his bald head so he writes the company another nasty letter of complaint. The next day he received a small parcel and a note which read:

    Dear Sir:
    Please find enclosed a bottle of molasses. Pour the molasses over your bald head, stick your wooden leg up your butt and go as a caramel apple.
    Very truly yours,
    Acme Costume Co.

    Hello to all -

    Thanks for the startup, Mick! Sorry about the rain you are encountering... the pics look great"--

    Lav, glad that your visitors, and especially granddaughter, were able to come, how nice!

    Pauly, great to hear from you, yes, making plans with people is stressful! Next time I'm doing it your way!

    PPQ, banner week when the boss moved on... wonderful. Hope you get some relaxed time now...

    Hello to all -

    I am in the middle of the US right now, visiting my brother and SIL... this is a possible next move for me, so they have helped me scope things out here... so many things to sort out. Tomorrow I head to MN, where I lived for many years... good friends there for the next couple of days.

    So far all is well... ����

    Take care!!!

    Good evening friends,

    Got a touch warm & humid today, oh well. Had a great visit with the family & my granddaughter made us a delicious vegan lunch - ‘sausage’ rolls & salad. She’s 11, awesome

    Mick, sorry about the weather but at least you got a rainbow

    Cyn, glad you are safe & enjoying your family

    Quick hello to everyone else & I have to run out & close up the chicken house. Dark before 7 pm, geez.
    Have a good night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...great pics. I think the wind would bother me more than the rain. It does look like you get some sun so jump out there when you have the chance.

    TG...glad to hear all is good with you. Nice that you're at you brothers and SIL. I guess you can pretty much pick wherever you want to end up.

    Lav...I know this getting dark by 7pm sucks. I'm not ready for it. It was 32F this morning and frost on the windshield.

    Will pop back after work. Have a good day all....PPQP

    Good evening all,

    We had another warm & humid day here, not what you expect this time of year, oh well. I’m just back from my second walk, the dog is exhausted, hahha!!!!
    Today is YB’s birthday, next year he’ll be an old man of 70. I try to talk him into walking with me but he usually refuses. Not much I can do about that!

    PQ, hope your day was good. I almost wish we were closer to frost, the heat is so bothersome to me.

    Mick, is there always a rainbow in Wales? It’s very pretty & large. Sorry you’ve had so much rain to deal with on this trip. My daughter just notified me Facebook & Messenger are working again - oh joy.

    Cyn, thinking of you!

    Hello to Det, Pauly, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night everyone.

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...glad you were able to get out for a decent hike. It is nice seeing the rainbows but wish the weather had been a little nicer for you. Home again tomorrow. Are you going to try for another trip before the snow flies? I bet productivity went up in businesses all over the world with FB being down.

    Lav...it was downright cold here today but I'll take it. Can't believe you're still getting heat & humidity. I think it's funny you're exhausting the dog. Happy Bday to YB. It was a good day today. The prog coord showed up for about an hour and then informed me she was working from home. One of the board members showed up at work today to deliver some documents to the accountant. He's part of the hiring committee and informed us they've had a lot of responses for the GM job and that any input from the staff would be appreciated. So she let him have it about the prog coord. LOL The President of the board then sent an email to the staff basically saying the board has our backs and included all the contact information for the board and to feel free to contact them at any time. I'm happy with the way things are, no prog coord and no boss.

    Shout out to TG, Det, Pauly, Sam & Pie. Have a good night all....PPQP

    yep I have another 2 trips to do before the snows come in ..are you going for the gm job?

    hiya Lav happy birthday to yb ..what did he buy himself for his birthday?guess what the latest is ?Boris the blimp has told everyone to start getting their xmas food in early in case of shortages ..the result of that? aldi turkey crowns are selling at the rate of 1500 a day!! crazy ...never saw a rainbow this morning!!!

    MAE ALL..

    Mick...glad you're home safe and sound. I've driven in wind and rain like that before. Finally had to just pull over I couldn't handle it. Glad the rabbits are home and it sounds like they're both fine. I hope the weather holds up for your next 2 trips. We're supposed to get a bit of snow on holiday Monday. No, I am not applying for the GM job. Somebody else can deal with the boss's mess.

    Not much to report, quiet day with no drama so that was good.
    Shout out to the rest of the gang.
    Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 3rd october.

    Evening greetings friends!

    Well we ended up with a complete cloud cover today so it feels much cooler although the humidity remains. My hair might frizz this week but walking will be much easier haha!
    I made a batch of low sodium tortillas this afternoon (2 mg sodium each) using part white & part whole wheat flour. I’m having fun since finding this baking powder with 0 sodium. We grilled some chicken & used the tortillas to make wraps for dinner with a side salad - pretty darn good.

    PQ, you just reminded me of the days when the bosses weren’t in - they were the best! We got everything done, the patients were safe & happy, the nursing staff went home happy.
    Now that you’ve been invited to speak up about the new GM make sure you do - loud & clear, haha! No more a$$hole bosses needed!!. I sure hope you don’t get snow so soon. I don’t mind the cold butthe snow can wait a few months, right?

    Mick, glad you got home safe & sound. It’s not easy driving in weather like that especially when the other idiots on the highway don’t slow down for conditions. We have a big highway that runs up & down the entire east coast - I-95. I refuse to drive on it anymore because a few friends of mine lost their lives on that road. YB or someone else can do the driving on that road & I keep my eyes closed as well.
    I hope you get better weather for your next two outings.

    Hello to Det - loved your food pics on FB & IG!
    Hello to Pauly, Sam & Pie.

    Cyn, hope you are enjoying your visit with your family & please be careful when you get back on the road.

    Have a nice night all!
