    Re: May 15

    Thanks for the startup for the week, Mick! I saw that Lav posted last night late...

    Sorry to be away... I've been spending all days and evenings on the computer, figuring out finances, etc. and by the time I close the computer (and have forgotten to post) I just can't get myself to open it up again. Next week will be different -- I will be driving to Wisconsin to help some friends with their clutter! They are desperate, and are actually hiring me to help set up some systems for them. Then it's back to NE for the end of the month graduation of my niece's oldest. I may even drive (an hour away) this evening to see/hear her last band concert...

    Mick, so sorry about Jeeves - how is he doing now? I bet you were tired after that night of nursing him... The trains and towns are amazing! I want to move there! Thanks for those pics. And good to hear about the flowers you are planting - and making one for Julie's dad, how nice of you. Enjoy those horses - that sounds like quite a herd (if that's the right word) Hope the weather improves for you. It finally cooled off here and we got a bit of rain...

    PPQ - so wild that you are dealing with snow and I am dealing with extreme heat. Finally that spell snapped, so I am enjoying a nice cool breeze here now - the first time in weeks. That's wise to wait to plant - when I lived in MN, the last week in May was the absolute earliest anyone would consider planting... hope you found some shoes...

    Lav, snakes, yikes! And your beagle can smell them? Who knew they had a smell! Good though if they are keeping the mice population down. It seems so early for school to be getting out - especially because of all the lost time from Covid, but maybe it will take a year to get back in the groove. The city where I am living announced that hundreds of teachers will not be returning to teach next year... mostly high school teachers. Nurses and teachers, the most undervalued workers in America. I hope we get this situation figured out.

    Hello to Pauly, Sam, Det and anyone else stopping by. Wishing all well --

    Re: May 15

    Greetings from the deck - it’s not raining for a change, haha! Storms scheduled for tomorrow afternoon though, could be big ones.

    Mick, I love all the lighting on your train platform. It does look very inviting
    No snake sightings today although I know they’ll be back soon enough. I actually woke up at 6, went to the bathroom & right back to bed for another hour. There was no sunlight so no reason to stay up.

    Cyn, it’s hard to sit by yourself & figure those things out. I always need to run things by someone else, gather opinions then end up doing what I want. Good luck with that.
    I hope your trip to Wisconsin is any easy one. I have to agree with you the teachers & nurses are not treated well, get no respect. In my next life, if I get one I will be neither of those professions. You just get damn tired of being taken advantage of & walked on by CEOs. Not sure what I will be yet but I’ll figure something out.

    PQ, hope you got your time off this weekend!

    Hello to Pauly, Det & Sam.

    Have a nice evening all!

    Re: May 15

    A very short post today..I am shattered. About 9 last night jeeves took a downturn for the worse.I medded him upbut nothing..decided to phone the vet..closed obviously..past on to the emergency vet..no reply. Phoned the animal hospital in Manchester .they said bring him down immediately I literally picked him up flat...and bombed down the motorway. The hospital Phoned me on the way down..they were waiting to rush him in....and here we go.I was 10 minutes away and the little bugger started coming round..by the time I got there he was bouncing around.they triaged him checked him.we ended up there till 2.30 am.and on top of that I had to drove home in a massive storm. The vet was brilliant. Jeeves had had earlier on gutstasis and one of things they think caused it was eating too much grass.apparently spring grass contains lots of sugar which sends him loopy. The vet said that the stuff I gave him without any doubt brought him back the nurse said it was fortunate I knew what to do..I should hope I do after all his performances!!!he got meds and an injection. Today he is as right as rain .

    So I need to keep an eye on him.so that's me..

    Apologies but a big hello to everyone

    Re: May 15

    Good evening friends,

    Weird day, storms off & on & we’re still getting severe storm warnings. They even let the kids out of school early this afternoon.
    10 minutes ago it was pouring, now the sun is out, weird.

    Pauly, good to see you, hope you are well!

    Mick, so glad Jeeves is OK after all that. I’m sure you will survive as well. Pets & kids can really break your back, ugh!
    My son did the exact same thing one Sunday morning as we drove him to the ER. He had been sick with some virus but suddenly I couldn’t get any fluids in him & his diaper was dry from overnight. He looked seriously dehydrated. While we were waiting to be seen on a busy Sunday morning the kid started taking sips of Pepsi from a can & by the time we saw the doc he was as good as new, hahah!
    Hope you got some rest today.

    Hello to PQ, Cyn, Det & Sam. Hope everyone is OK.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Sorry for being away but I tried to stay off my computer. I thought it was Saturday all day Friday, LOL Only had to pop over to the community centre twice on Saturday, all total about 1 hr out of my weekend. Today seemed to take for ever, glad I'm home now.

    Mick...wow, what a scare. I was really worried reading your post. Glad he's ok and I hope you had a peaceful day. Nice job on the lighting, your train setup is awesome!

    Lav...we've had some pretty nice weather over the weekend and today. Almost too hot. Unfortunately it's supposed to change tomorrow and they're calling for more snow on Friday. I just hope it's not the heavy wet stuff and that there isn't too much.

    Pauly...glad to see you popping in. Hope you had a good day.

    TG...I totally get not opening up your computer again after shutting it down. You seem to busy as ever. Nice that your friends are going to hire you, I'm sure that'll help with your budget.

    Time to get dinner started. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: May 15

    Oh my gosh, Mick, I thought you were going to say that Jeeves went to the Great Bunny Beyond... I read on quickly! Glad that you made that mad trip safely, and that all turned out okay... you sure have a funny way of resting - that sounded like a very busy day you put in. Good luck, and tell the rabbits to "Keep off the Grass!"

    Lav, what crazy weather you are having! Here they keep promising rain, but it never amounts to much. I did see the Flower Moon rise a couple of nights ago - the sky was crystal clear -and I even stayed up long enough to see the eclipse start eating away at the lower left corner... that was almost scary to see. I guess in terms of planetary energy this is a crazy-nutty time, so we'll just buckle our seatbelts and hang on! On top of it being Mercury retrograde... yikes!

    PPQ - I hope that your promised snow didn't arrive! Enough! I am always getting confused about what day it is... living alone and not working at a job outside the house makes me oblivious sometimes... I hope all your projects are going well, and that your health is turning around for the better... did you get your new sneakers?

    Pauly, thanks so much for dropping by - always such a pleasure to see you -- how's things? All okay with the new job? Hope so --- take care.

    Sam, when is the wedding? I hope all is going well for that. Take care

    Det, thinking of you often - we support you!

    Wishing all well who drop by -- take care -

    Good evening friends,

    Nice day here, can’t complain. I’ll wait until Saturday to complain when it hits 93 humid degrees, yuck, haha!
    Just heard from my friend about her son - he’s was just transferred to a rehab hospital where hopefully they will get him functioning again, to some degree. It sounds like he suffered a good bit of brain damage so we’ll see how far he can come back. I find it hard to believe he actually made it thru 3 GSWs.

    PQ. I can’t believe you could get snow when we’re about to swelter on Saturday, crazy!!!
    Hope your day was good today.

    Mick, we’re in the whiplash weather thing here again. We never know what the next day is going to bring.
    YB is in charge of veggie planting here, I gave that up years ago, haha. I have lots of flowers popping up & look after them. Glad the bunnies have a cool spot to go to when it gets hot.

    Cyn, I’m glad you got to see the moon & eclipse. We always wait anxiously for those events then end up with a heavy cloud cover & can’t see a thing, figures.
    Hope your day was good today

    Hellos to Pauly, Det & Sam.

    Have a nice night all!
