    Mae all -

    Techie, thanks so much for the wishes and for stopping by! Sending you good wishes right back.

    QW, hello as well, and thanks for your post... I am sorry that you are a caretaker for a beloved that has dementia... that must be exhausting; what a journey.

    Lav, don't work your fingers to the bone! You sound so busy, but also seem to have everything in hand - in your Lav way! Wow, banana doughnuts, that's a new one... good luck on all.

    Mick, goodness! I am glad that all has gone well for those repairs. Thx for the history info and the video - amazing! Take care, and try to take it easy on the projects, right?

    PQ, wow this new boss sounds just wonderful, congrats. I can see the center being decorated in my mind's eye - wonderful.

    Det, are you healing? Hope so -

    Pauly good to see you - yes, I hope,we hear from Det soon... how is shopping going for Xmas? I'm doing nothing!

    Sam, good to see you, and glad to hear some music got mixed into the work schedule. Wishing you happy holidays...

    I am working hard to track down all bills and receipts that can be billed to my late husband's estate... I am working on the final settlement form, and it is nerve-wracking - not sure what's allowed, etc. but made an appointment to see a lawyer next week and get a second set of eyes... in the meantime I'm keep at it...

    PQ, sorry to say, this is a BIG new moon influence apparently - but in a good way - ushering fulfillment of wishes/work for the next 6 months!... anyway that's what some say...
    take care all -

  4. Thanks Quit wining thanked for this post

    Re: 28 November

    Good evening friends,

    I think I have finished all I wanted to do for Saturdayís sale. We pack it all up & take it to the site tomorrow evening to set up. The sale starts bright & early at 8 am Saturday. Then i really need to start getting serious at setting up a Christmas here at home, haha!

    PQ, you sound so much happier & relieved since the new boss arrived. Thatís just great & I hope the happiness & cooperation continues for a very long time!
    Guess what? My daughter is relieving me of perogie duty this year, yay!! She plans to get them made & frozen & cook them when she gets here Christmas eve. She heard my moaning & groaning & offered to pitch in & help. I am happy . Sorry about your weather but you do have a nice Christmas lunch to look forward to now.

    Cyn, all this work is hard on the aging eyes, thatís for sure. Iím in the process of looking for a new eye doctor & hope I can get an appointment before June, geez.
    I hope the new moon is kind to us. Itís been one rough year. You take care.

    QW, I do remember you mentioning your wife has PD, awful disease. I know thereís been some new meds introduced since my nursing years & even surgical procedures for some. I hope you have some good back up help, itís hard being the sole caregiver. Congrats on your AF time, youíre doing great.

    Mick, glad youíre able to stay ahead of the icing conditions. Sounds like you have a nice Christmas trip planned good for you!
    I take a diuretic to help lower my BP so I actually need the added potassium in my diet so why not in the form of a donut? Haha. Time for me to hop on my bike that goes nowhere, Lol

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

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 28 November

    And good afternoon everyone how are we today then? hope everyone is doing well. I have just had to take a covid test, we just found out that Julie's nephew's wife and one of her kids has got it . the big problem is on a Wednesday she comes up to clean Julie's Dad's house and brings the kids . my test came back is negative Julie's test came back as negative so she has just gone down to test her dad . fingers crossed it comes back as negative otherwise we do have a problem Houston. Very cold over here today, and in fact last night it snowed again. Only an inch or so and then it turned to rain and took it all away. As I say a short post, I'm making the tea while Julie goes and sees her dad, just in case. Both rabbits doing well however they are a bit smart we buy Timothy Hay and also normal meadow hay and I usually put a bundle of each for them mixed up up. They are that cute they actually separate the two types out and eat the good stuff. That is £18 for 6.5 kg the other is £6 for a large Bale and guess which one they like! sorry this is a short post but I need to get on with things take care look after yourselves and have a great weekend

    Re: 28 November

    MAE ALL…
    Was going to post yesterday and the next thing I knew it was 11pm and I went to bed.

    TG…the flooding is occurring in BC. They’ve had 3 atmospheric rivers in a row. No flooding here in Calgary. Yes, the new boss seems ok. He’s been feeling everyone out so see what concerns anyone has and I’m sure he’s still trying to sort it out. LOL There’s been a lot of unhappy campers for a while now. I hope you’re nearing the end of settling your husband’s estate. Wise decision to have a lawyer look at it.

    QW…you’re right the Highlander is now a lumber store. It was a wild place in its time. I was born in Calgary but lived in Duchess (north of Brooks) for a while. Calgary used to be a small cow town but not anymore. Congrats on day 1011, we’ve all had many Day 1’s. LOL You have an interesting bio. Sorry to hear about your wife’s diagnosis, hope you have a support system you can lean on.

    Mick…congrats on all the repairs working, now you can rest easy. Calgary on Sea would have been the 2013 floods, so sorry about BC, been there, done that. You are absolutely correct, he’s been watching and learning what’s been going on for the last 5 years. Sorry to hear about the Covid test but glad it’s negative. Hope her Dad comes out negative too. You two certainly don’t need that. We didn’t get much snow yesterday and today is still mild. Tomorrow, of course Saturday, temps are dropping and snow starts in the morning. At least I don’t have to go to work. You know you’re not raising dumb bunnies, don’t you. Enjoy your tea.

    Pauly…hope your day was good yesterday. Det has probably recovered and has been running his butt off with shoots. At least that’s what I’m thinking.

    Lav…it’s nice that you’re able to set up the day before your sale. I always ran our craft sale that way but not the prog-coord. LOL Thanks, I do feel a lot calmer these days. Wow, I can’t believe your daughter is making the perogies. You must be doing something right – got out of making Thanksgiving Dinner and now this. LOL I am looking forward to the Christmas lunch. He has also invited all of the childcare staff, not just the directors. Always a first time for everything.

    I had an eye appointment with an optometrist at 3pm. I haven’t seen an optometrist for 30 years, always just went to my ophthalmologist. My right eye has started getting foggy and I don’t see my ophthalmologist until February. Since I official became a Senior in January I figured I’d see an optometrist as it’s covered by my health insurance. Actually, not all of it is, had to pay $30. I guess uninsured it’s $110. He discovered one of my cataracts has started growing over and sent a not off to my ophthalmologist. Guess I could have waited till Feb and not paid for anything. LOL It was as 15min appointment so started my weekend 2 hours early so I think it was worth it.

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

    Re: 28 November

    Mae all -

    Mick, I hope it is good news for Julie's dad... that's not a problem any of you need. Glad to hear you and Julie are in the clear. Ooh, the bunnies have good taste... ��

    Lav, As I write this, I am hoping that you are home (though probably worn out). I hope the setup went smoothly today. Good luck and best wishes for good sales Saturday.. Great news about the pierogies! The next generation is stepping up... love that. Wishing you a good sleep before your day tomorrow...

    PQ, probably good to have a first "second opinion" about your eye... never hurts to have more info. Sorry about the weekend snow, but glad you won't have to travel. Enjoy your movies!

    Pauly, hello, hope all is well. Det, you must be busy as heck, hope so. Hello to all else dropping by...

    We had a whee of a thunderstorm last night, incredible thunderclaps in the dark, and the sounds of lashing rain this morning. It dropped a little snow, then the sun came out - good thing, as it still felt quite frosty. I'm going to look again at some sites that talk about this powerful new moon... I want to be in a good "head-space" as we head into the darkest part of the year...

    Sending peace to all...

    Re: 28 November

    Greetings friends,

    Back after the set up & all ready for the morning. I don’t have enough brain power to do stuff like that at 7 am, Lol
    So the guy setting up the table next to us is a retired Maryland State Trooper. Now YB will have someone to talk to besides me, haha!

    Mick, sorry about the testing but it’s safer to know your status. Hope Julie’s dad is in the clear as well.
    Fortunately my chickens don’t get picky about what I feed them. With the way the plow thru 50 lb bags of feed they better not be expecting the super expensive stuff, haha! Glad the snow didn’t hang around too long.

    PQ, I am truly grateful that my daughter has taken the reins this year. I think her new job has left her in a better mood with more energy to do stuff.
    That’s nice everyone will be included for the Christmas lunch, the way it should be really. Hope you don’t get stuck with much snow, who needs it? I’m glad you got your eyes checked. Cataracts can sneak up on you & I’m wondering if I’m developing one too. We shall see if I ever get an appointment.

    Cyn, yep we’re all set upi & looking forward to the last event of the year. Who knows what next year will bring, right?
    We haven’t had any real rain for several weeks after having such a soggy early fall. Thunderstorms at night are always fun, LOL
    The winter solstice is only 18 days away so light will be returning, yay!

    Det & Pauly, hope you are OK Sam & Pie, hello to you both.

    Have a nice night kids

    A kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they drew. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's artwork. As she got to one little Johnny who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.

    Little Johhny replied, "I'm drawing God."

    The teacher paused and said, "but no one knows what God looks like."

    Without missing a beat, or looking up from his drawing little Johnny replied, "They will in a minute."

    Quotations from Actual Students Essays

    Her face was a perfect oval, like a circle that had its two other sides gently compressed by a thigh master.

    His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.

    He spoke with wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a
    pinhole in it.

    She grew on him like E. coli and he was room temperature Canadian beef.

    She had a deep throaty genuine laugh like that sound a dog makes just before he throws up.

    Her vocabulary was as bad, as, like, whatever.

    He was a tall as a six foot three inch tree.

    The revelation that his marriage of 30 years had disintegrated because of his wife’s infidelity came as a rude shock, like a surcharge at a formerly surcharge free ATM.

    The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn’t.

    McBride fell 12 stories, hitting the pavement like a hefty bag filled with vegetable soup.

    From the attic came an unearthly howl. The whole scene had an eerie surreal quality, like when you’re on vacation in another city and Jeopardy comes on at 7 pm instead of 7:30.

    Her hair glistened in the rain like nose hair after a sneeze.

    The hailstones leaped up off the pavement, just like maggots when you fry them in hot grease.

    Long separated by cruel fate, the star crossed lovers raced across a grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one having left Cleveland at 6:36 p.m. traveling at 55 mph, the other from Topeka at 4:19 p.m. at a speed of 35 mph.

    They lived in a typical suburban neighborhood with picket fences that resemble Nancy Kerrigan’s teeth.

    John and Mary had never met. They were like two hummingbirds who had also never met.

    He fell for her like his heart was a mob informant and she was the east river.

    Even in his last years, grandpappy had a mind like a steel trap, only one that had been left out so long, it had rusted shut.

    Shots rang out, as shots are wont to do.

    The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law Phil. But unlike Phil, this plan just might work.

    Young fighter had a hungry look, the kind you get from not eating for a while.

    "Oh, Jason, take me!" she panted, her breasts heaving like a college freshman on $1-a-beer night.

    He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck, either, but a really duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a landmine or something.

    The Ballerina rose gracefully en pointe and extended one slender leg behind her, like a dog at a fire hydrant.

    It was an American tradition, like fathers chasing kids with power tools.

    He was deeply in love when she spoke, he thought he heard bells, as if she were a garbage truck backing up.

    She was as easy as the TV guide crossword.

    Her eyes were like limpid pools, only they had forgotten to put in any pH cleanser.

    She walked into my office like a centipede with 98 missing legs.

    Her voice had that tense grating quality, like a generation thermal paper fax machine that needed a band tightening.

    It hurt the way your tongue hurts after you accidentally staple it to the wall.

    Mae all,

    Just finished up helping my hose-mate/friend/client with wrapping her packages for her family. Then packed them in 2 boxes which we will send to Boaton. She is flying, so no way to carry all that. I feel like I've done my holiday duties now! Done!

    Mick, good job on the dollhouse - you are getting Julie all set up for her retirement, right?
    PQ, hoping your eyes will be healthy and good to go.
    Lav, have been thinking of you today, hoping that the sale is going well...
    QW, Det, Pauly, and all... sending light - though as Lav says, the light will be growing stronger soon...

    Wishing all well -

    Re: 28 November

    Good evening friends,

    Well I had the most spectacular day at the craft fair, possibly the best ever, haha!
    I ended up sending YB home to bring back more stuff I had left at home because I didn’t think I could possibly need it all. Wow, it was exciting & fun. Thanks for all the best wished!!

    Mick, good find on the dollhouse! That’s a great gift & a great bargain to boot I hope Julie has a lot of fun with it in her retirement.
    No rain here & it’s a bit warmer than it really should be this time of year.

    Cyn, you are a regular holiday elf, haha! That’s so nice to help your client like that. Good job!
    I’m hoping to work up some motivation to begin decorating & wrapping & baking, etc.

    Hellos going to PQ, Det, Pauly, Sam, Pie, QW! Hope everyone is doing well.

    Have a nice night all.
