    Re: 24th oct

    Good evening friends,

    The rain total last night was 3.5”, more coming later tonight.
    Walked a little this morning then quit due to increased foot pain. Just ordered myself a small, foldable stationary bike on Costco. That way I can get the blood pumping without full weight bearing on my achy feet. Getting old is painful sometimes, haha!!!

    PQ, I feel like there’s more I want to do in this life but not sure what it is yet. So I better keep myself as healthy as possible in case I figure it out, Lol
    I hope your new manager can walk & chew gum - if you know what I mean

    Cyn, I sure hope that car title comes thru soon, geez! We shouldn’t be losing sleep over stuff like that.
    You keep yourself warm & dry, please

    Mick, I think we are too stubborn to be dismissed yet, haha!! I fully intend to collect all the Social Security I can get. My pension is invested making me some money while I fool around & I am grateful for that

    Hello to Pauly & Det, Sam & Pie. Check in when you can folks.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    TG...LOL, I forgot they winked. I've only known Lav with the current icon but purple dinosaurs sounds great. We've been rain free since Saturday, knock wood. Friday will be a different story. Hope the title got put in the system today and you can cross that one off your list. I prefer no music when I'm on hold, mind you I'm usually at work and can multi task.

    Mick...glad the tummy is better but I don't recommend it as a diet routine. Pretty soon you'll be spending a lot more time up in the loft. When are you two heading out again? The replacements they put in place are basically available if we go to another lock down. Businesses are really hurting trying to hire staff so I can understand it's time. Yup, another totally unbiased walk around by a prospective candidate today. I never met him but those that did weren't impressed. Oh well.

    The accountant has lost her mind. One of the last things the boss did was cut our sick days back by 5 days. The assistant childcare director just found out her 21 month old granddaughter has stage 4 cancer and the tumor has wrapped around her spinal cord. She went to her daughter's house in Lethbridge Tuesday afternoon and by Thursday the doctor transferred them to the children's hospital in Calgary, the outcome doesn't look good. The accountant took it upon herself to mark her paystub with 5 sick days. Not the right number of days and not her job. If I was feeling sorry for myself the other day I'm not anymore. Then the accountant informed us the old boss has asked for some financial documents and she sent them to him. WTF, he doesn't work here anymore!

    So I will continue to keep my head down, keep my mouth shut and hope things get resolved sooner rather than later.

    Hope we all have a good night....PPQP

    Re: 24th oct

    Good afternoon everyone and how are we today then question mark hope everyone is well. it is a very dark afternoon over here, it looks like storm weather but as yet nothing. Very windy no chance to fly the drone today. Instead I was in the loft messing about with the trains again full stop the amount of dust that has gathered up there is unbelievable, I have to take all the figures and little bits and pieces and the vehicles off the scenery and Hoover it all up. My back was starting to play me up again this morning so I've taken things a little easy.

    Hiya lav how are you today then? Have you been on the bike today question mark is this instead of going for your walks or as well as? Yes you are right we will be around for a good one yet my intention is for every year that I worked for the prison service I won't a year pension out of them. Once I've got that then I will go onto the army so all in all working on that Theory I will be around for the next 25 years haha. I think you got our share of the rain as well comma can we have it back when we run short? I have been messing about trying to get music as background music too when I start taking video footage. I came across a great artist called Cody Francis absolutely brilliant music full stop take care look after yourself

    Hiya ppqp how are you doing? Hope all is well with you. That is sad to hear about the child care directors granddaughter. Another place I have visited in the dim and distant past Lethbridge. I think your place in life is to look after you let the rest worry about themselves and fight it out and when it all goes pear-shaped you can't get the blame for any of it full stop though I don't see why The ex boss wants any documentation not unless he's planning to take something to a tribunal somewhere? And try and claim compensation for something. Best out of it. You take care of yourself

    Hiya teegee how are you today then? are you feeling any better? Did the car documents come? Hope so

    Hiya pauly how are you today? How are things with you and yours hope all is well take care and look after yourself

    Did you see over here about that guy that glues his face to the motorway? He was protesting against climate change and decided a great way to do it would be to glue his face to the M25 motorway. What an absolute muppet. Does he not realise that at the release agent that they used to free him actually contained carcinogens that were released into the atmosphere full stop dingbats the world over. Right people have a great afternoon and look after yourself one and all
    af since the fourth of July 2012...howzat then America..now proudly marching into year 5..done that one..now bimbling into year 6..tick ..done that one too..as he casually strolls into numero 7

    Re: 24th oct

    Good evening friends,

    We’re back into sunshine & blue skies today
    I ended up meeting my daughter for lunch today as she was working at a school in Delaware only 11 miles from here. Her new job takes her to schools all over northern Delaware so it’s a longer commute for her but she’s loving the new job. We can meet up frequently now & I really love that.

    PQ, that is so sad about the young one, poor baby. Why do these things happen? It just doesn’t make any sense. Prayers for that family
    I can’t believe that guy is asking for anything, let alone financial documents after leaving the company. He should be told to buzz off, haha!!
    The rest of you deserve a really decent manager, a team player for a change! Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

    Mick, I just ordered the bike yesterday so when it gets delivered & put together I will make myself get on the thing every day. Anything to relieve the foot pain, ugh.
    I know how you feel about the pension checks. The hospital gave me a lump sum which i invested immediately. Social Security is a monthly deposit into my personal checking account & we are getting a raise in January, woo hoo!! My poor Mom only ever received 6 or 7 SS payments before she passed at age 65. We spend our working years paying into that fund so we deserve to get it back. Certain politicians have borrowed from the SS fund over the years when they weren’t supposed to be able to touch it so we are worried a bit. I want every single penny back that I dutifully paid into the fund
    Have fun with the inside cleaning projects. I walked around the yard today taking pictures if things still blooming including lilac & forsythia. Those poor plants are confused.

    Hello to Cyn, hope everything is OK.

    Pauly, Det, Sam & PIe - hello!

    Have a nice night all. Time to close up the chicken house - it’s dark.

    Re: 24th oct

    MAE GUYS...

    It was a quiet day today, everyone played in their own sandbox. LOL The childcare director also has two grandsons 7 & 9 and the family is staying at Ronald McDonald's house. While the SIL is at the hospital the grandsons come to the community centre and spend the day. It just brings tears to my eyes when I see her hug them goodbye at the end of the day.

    Mick...it was windy here today as well except at least we had the sun. Winter storm warning has been issued for Banff and I hope it doesn't move towards us. You take it easy on your old back. I agree with you, head down and mouth shut. Who knows what the ex-boss is up to. Couldn't even figure him out when he was here.

    Lav...how nice to meet up with your daughter and it sounds like it'll happen more often. "Buzz off" wasn't exactly the two words I was thinking of. LOL I've been a little worried about my other son as I haven't heard from him for awhile but he just showed up to do some laundry and then is heading out to a meditation meeting. I will sleep better tonight.

    Thinking of Pi, Det, Sam, TG and Pauly. Have a good night all...PPQP

    Re: 24th oct

    Mae all - honestly, I don't know how these days work... I keep putting one foot in front of the other, and thinking I have checked in here, then I see that I haven't- so weird. Seems like I am having a prolonged "out of body" experience without realizing it ... lol. The good news is that the tittle has cleared, and a friend will take me to the DMV tomorrow morning to register the car, and then hopefully they'll give me something to put on the car to let me drive until I get the real plates. So, one thing hopefully sorted! Then will work with a client for the rest of the day, which always lifts my spirits.

    Mick, glad the tum is better... enjoy the trains! I was wondering if you could use those cans of compressed air to help get the dust off of the delicate pieces.

    PPQ - what a heartbreaking story about the accountant's family. Sending light. Glad you caught site of your son... I know you must worry sometimes.

    Lav, good idea on the bike! Hope it works out... we all owe all nurses a debt of gratitude for all those hours on their feet... makes aging hard... glad that you are seeing your daughter more!!

    Pauly, how's things? Det, hoping all is well in your busy world... hello to all others dropping by...

    Re: 24th oct

    Heya ABeroooos! gotta be brief as I'm in full crazy mode with another 3 shoots today, which is grand and a huge relief in many ways but truly a scramble as they
    are quite geographically disparate. Sounds like some good things in AB land, combined with the daily frustrations of we the 'tax cows', which I can fully relate to.
    I did make it to a proper Buddhist sangha last Sunday which was a really inspiring experience....hopefully I can make it this Sunday, though I have a shoot then also. oh well, I'll
    figure it out.
    packing up for shoot #1.

    Be well loves!

    just llooked we have a massive storm coming ,,,they have forecast power cuts and everything

    sorry its so short folks ..


    Researchers at Stirling University have found that parents who joke and play 'pretend' games with their children help them to form valuable social skills for life.

    So I've told my kids I'm taking them to Disneyland next week.

    Just visited a horror theme park dedicated to Gloria Gaynor. Scary stuff, I'm ok now but at first I was afraid , I was petrified...

    MAE ALL...

    TG...glad to hear the title got sorted. At least that's one thing off your list. Out of body experience eh? You must have a thousand things going around in your mind so I'm not surprised.

    Det...good to see you pop in. Glad you're busy with shoots, helps in the pocket book. You do find the most interesting events to attend. Hope the shoots went well for you.

    Mick...don't you have those codes written down? Glad you got them figured out. I like TG's compressed air suggestion except you'll probably spend hours trying to find all the people again. LOL If the clocks go back this weekend won't that make it better. An extra hour of sunlight?

    Lav...looks like I beat you to the thread today so will read up on your day later.

    It was a quiet day and seemed extremely long. Time to figure out dinner. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 24th oct

    Greetings,

    Had a good day including a trip to Costco. Then I got an email from the company where I ordered my grandson’s Halloween costume. They have changed delivery from 3 days to 10-20 days, crap. So we took him to the nearest Halloween store which happens to be near the Costco we had just been to in Delaware, haha! He has a costume now & he’s happy - Halloween has been saved.

    PQ, I sure hope you don’t get a major storm, ugh. We’re in for more rain & wind Friday just like we had a few days ago.
    Glad you son made an appearance in good` time.

    Cyn, yay for the car title, finally!
    I can only imagine all that’s swirling thru your mind these days, being a little off your game is completely OK.
    I sure did beat up my feet during my career even though I always wore good shoes. I think some of my discomfort is due to arthritis too, oh well. Looking forward to the bike, it should help.

    Det, Congrats on all the new work friend - that’s a good` thing
    Take a little time to breathe & refocus, even if it’s only a few minutes, it helps.

    Mick, hope the storm isn’t too bad. I hate losing power even though we have the generator.
    Like Cyn mentioned I use those cans of compressed air to clean the. Dust & threads out of my embroidery machines, they work great

    Hello to all & wishing everyone a nice night!
