    Re: May 1st

    Aren’t we supposed to say White Rabbits today?

    Mick, thanks for the cool pics today & I’m pretty sure you’re enjoying your trip. Hope the weather continues to hold for you.

    Not much happening here. I did actually walk thru another craft fait today & ended up buying a large candle poured into a wooden bowl & will give it to my DIL this week for her birthday.
    It ended up getting cloudy & rainy this afternoon & now I’m aching in most parts. Can’t deal with this damp weather anymore. I am getting to be a real oldie I guess.
    I am working on an application for another craft event in September called the Apple Festival. It draws a lot of people & has been cancelled the past 2 years because of covid. I think that should be a good one!!

    Hello to PQ, Cyn, Pauly, Det & Sam! Hope everyone is doing OK

    Have a nice night all!

    Greetings friends,

    Hope everyone is doing well.
    I had the thrill of spending $399 at the vet this afternoon just to get my dog her yearly shots, bloodwork done & her medications refilled, geez. I think she may have to go get a job at this rate, haha!!

    Mick, thank you again for the awesome photos & videos. I think you two are definitely enjoying the trip

    Hello to the rest of the group & wishing everyone a nice night!

    Hiya all (Lav) how are we today then?hope all is good ..a long relaxing day today..it was very overcast and then the heavens opened so it was a quiet day by the side of the Loch. This is definitely one of the most scenic sites that there is.tomorrow we are off to a site called Morvech, for a couple of nights then on to Skye apologies for the short posts but with both the internet and time constraints it is a bit difficult. I've also sent lots of pics and photos out but don't really know if everyone got them.
    Hiya Lav, how are you today then?all well?glad you liked the pics and video..I was chuffed with 2nd one going over the viaduct .a big ouch with the vet bills. If you manage to get her a job, ask if they have any vacancies for rabbits..specialities are eating and escape...ideal qualities...take care and have a good day.

    Hello everyone else..hope all is well with you

    Greetings Mick & everyone!

    Mick, I’m sure glad you are enjoying your big trip, thanks for the pics & videos of places I’ll never see
    I think Matilda’s specialty is her beagle nose & her sharp bark, haha! She could have been taught tracking or hunting I imagine by another owner. She’s been a good friend keeping me company

    Very nice day here, mostly sunny & 70 degrees but now the rain moves in overnight, naturally. Trying to catch up with spring cleaning & emptying closets of stuff no longer needed. Such excitement! LOL

    Hello to all & wishing everyone a nice night!

    Re: May 1st

    MAE ALL...

    Sorry for missing in action lately. I've been extremely busy and then I had a flare up on Sunday. Went into work for 1/2 a day yesterday then came home and slept. The inflammation is gone but still a little sore in places. Filed my taxes yesterday and ended up owing 2K that knocked the wind out of me. Obviously I'm not taking enough tax off my Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Security. Geeze! Been working on our Community Cleanup, it's this Sunday and of course the temp is supposed to drop and it'll be raining. Great! I saw my smoking cessation councilor today and she's pretty good. I'm starting Champix again and also got the Nicorette mist to help with habits. Starting slow but have a 30 day quit date so hopefully May 31st will see me NF.

    Mick...thanks for all the pics and videos and sorry for not responding to them. I've been a little overwhelmed lately. I'm living my vacation vicariously through you. We opened up tennis court bookings on a new platform May 1st and there were a couple of glitches, so that kept me busy. We did get a ton of people booking courts right away.

    Lav...I haven't read back so not sure how the sale went on Saturday. Hope it was successful. Next on my agenda is to open up registration for our Christmas Craft Sale. We haven't run one for 3 years and the old prog coord changed it so much all I got was disgruntled emails. Going back to my version of the sale and running it 2 days. I'm sure people will be glad I'm organizing it again. I've got an open stage event on May 13th with 4 food trucks coming. So wouldn't you know it the school has decided to rent the City's Adventure Playground that afternoon and open it up to the public. I'm going to have to secure some parking spots for the food trucks and heaven help anyone who parks there. On a good note I'm starting the bridge group up again on Thursday so will be taking Thursday afternoons off so I can play.

    I hope everyone else is doing ok. I will try to keep up more. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: May 1st

    Mae all,

    So sorry to be away! I have had lots of family time (in a city an hour away) - kids doing their final recitals, final tennis matches, soccer games, 4-H horse showing... so I am getting filled up with family time. But it's leaving me a little worn out and scattered.

    Lav, I need to read back to see how the sale went... I hope it was great! Glad to hear that you are planning another one, that sounds perfect. So sorry about the vet bills... that is the ONLY good thing about not have a pet... and of course my special-needs, elder dog really took a chunk of change... but still, I miss him.

    PPQ, I love your ideas for all the special activities! Good luck on everything - it seems like there is a new day at the center with you getting all these things done. Best of luck on the Chantrix - we are cheering you on! Best thing you can do for yourself...

    Mick, wow I must log onto FB to see these pics, everything sounds so wonderful. I'll be thinking of you as you take the special train... what an incredible treat. So glad you are both feeling well and enjoying.

    Sending a big hello to all who stop by - Cheers --

    Re: May 1st

    Greetings friends,

    Cloudy & damp all day, oh well. I did just get my walk done though, left the dog home & took YB haha!!
    Got word today that the 38 yr old son of our oldest friends was the victim of a shooting yesterday. He’s still alive despite being hit in the head, chest & abdomen. He was at work, minding his own business but in a bad part of town. This country & their damned guns . He’s had several surgeries & is in the trauma unit where my daughter worked until recently. He has a wife & 4 kids, this is so sad.

    PQ, sorry you had a flare up. Do you know what caused it?
    Our taxes have been filed & I’m happy to pay the accountant to do it for us. We have confusing pension things & investments that make it near impossible to do our own taxes anymore. It’s all way above my pay grade, haha. Good job on the quit plan & I hope the Champix is helpful. I like that you have the Christmas craft fair again. My craft fair was a bummer unfortunately. Hoping for better fairs later on in the year.

    Cyn, wow you have been a busy girl! Glad you’re getting good family time though
    Turns out the fair on Saturday was primarily a big bunch of resellers, very few crafters including myself. The next fair doesn’t allow any resellers so it will probably be better.
    Rest up when you can!

    Mick, so glad you’re enjoying the heck out of your trip - or should I say Julie’s retirement trip?

    We picked up more plants from the Amkish greenhouse we like today so tomorrow I can plant up the window boxes on the chicken house to make it look nice.
    Hello to Pauly. Det & Sam.

    Be well everyone!
