    MAE ALL...

    The upside of the prog coord is she won't be in the office. The downside is the bosses hands are tied as far as eliminating her position until October. Yet again we are in a holding pattern. The accountant wants the boss to fire her and the lawyer says he'd just be opening himself up to a lawsuit. She sure knew how to play the game. Currently I'm figuring out a way to get her off the group lottery agreement and again the lawyer says watch your back. All I can say is (*+(*_^&%*&%.

    Was looking forward to playing bridge and starting my long weekend until just before noon a contractor came in to say they're going to tear up our driveway and there'll be no access to the parking lot for 3 months! WTF we have regular programs, event bookings and childcare drop off and pick up. Supposed to start tomorrow! Absolutely no notice. Boss has got our City Liaison, Member of Parliament and Member of the Legislative Assembly working to figure out a solution. We may end up having to cancel everything we've just put in place. Frig!!

    Mick...good job on staying out of the way and poof, job done. The prog coord is not getting a payout, her disability amount is minimal. The frustrating thing is she ties our hands as far as moving forward. I'm still chuffed about the recognition and having my laptop paid off. I'm sure things have changed a lot since I was last there. I just wish everyone would get their sh*t together and realize what's important.

    Lav...you make sure you spell out the rules before sharing your vehicle. LOL Things are running so much better without the prog coord around. That's got to count for something. I am feeling pretty damn good about the recognition from my boss. It's been a long time coming.

    TG...believe me we all wish the PC could just be fired! It's like the guilty has more rights than the victim. With the unexpected road/parking lot closure we have a new fire to put out, but I am determined to get her off the group lottery. Enjoy your grand-niece's graduation, those events have lasting memories for everyone.

    Going to ignore everything going on and watch the do or die hockey game for my team. Hope they'll be able to extend the 2nd round playoffs to the full 7 games. It's been such a boost to our city economically and morally wise for everyone. Feels like the good old times.

    Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: May 22

    Hello everyone and how are we today then? hope everyone is doing well. Just got back from the dentist, no issues at all all it was just a check up and then a hygienist visit TN. Weather over here today day is dry, but very very windy. I'm looking out of the back window and there are about 30 brent geese walking up the field there sat nav must be shot because the the lake is about 100 yards to the left of where they are! Both rabbits are doing absolutely brilliantly, I didn't say that that because when I do it usually goes pear-shaped but they are doing well. The kitchen has been painted and looks good, we set ourselves task lists and jobs to do within a specific period of time I'm almost up to date apart from the guttering to finish off and it is too windy to go up there today day. Over here everyone is getting ready for the Queen's platinum celebrations, there are a list in an hour radius of about 100 streets that will be closed due to street parties. we go away on the 4th, so we will miss them round here but obviously not where we are going to. Just going out to plant up my tomato plants in a minute, I have 8 different varieties to try this year, one of them being named cream sausage! It is yellow and colour sweets and sausage shaped funnily enough. Apart from that a quiet day full stop looking at the news this morning, I'm so glad we decided to bin going abroad for a while, the cues that Manchester Airport are having are unbelievable due to shortage of staff. People are queueing for about 5 hours at a time. Not for me thank you very much. This post is very much like me short and sweet, just making sure everyone is ok take care look after yourselves have a great weekend

    Re: May 22

    Good evening friends,

    Had a thunderstorm this afternoon & waiting for another this evening. I guess we’re just that lucky, haha!
    Still hoping to be able to have grandsons & their parents over for a cookout Monday. It will be a last minute as usual thing I guess.

    Cyn, I hope yo don’t have to do any driving this weekend. Everyone seems to want to drive or fly somewhere for the long weekend. Like Mick said, the airports are packed right now.
    When you do go I hope you enjoy the gradauation & dog sitting

    PQ, I hope things settle down soon at work. You were just getting comfy in your job then everything wants to blow up - rats
    YB got his truck bacxk so he’s happy. I am going to have the same place fix the dents & broiken mirror on my car from when I was side swiped back in the Fall. I only have to pay my $500 deductible & the insurance company is picking up the rest including a rental car for me so I’m happy with that. I don’t mind YB driving my car so much but I don’t want the seats & rugs ruined by the bare footed farmers he drive around, that’s why he has a truck haha!!

    Mick, sounds like yo have everything under control, nice!
    I imagine there will be some big parties for the Queen’s jubilee. I alsio imagine there will be some drinking involved, haha!
    Good luck with your tomatoes this year, sounds like you will have quite a harvest

    Hello to all & wishing everyone a nice night!

    MAE ALL...

    Enjoying my day off, sunny and warm, for now. Went out to get some groceries and got a call from the boss. Apparently there was a garden member here and was expecting to see me. I was just driving past the community centre when he called so stopped in. The gardener is mobility/mentally challenged and he was here to start his plot. He has been with us for 3 years and the when Covid hit he was not allowed to participate. Now he's back and judging the smile on his face is ecstatic! Both his brother and caregiver have told me that it's all he can talk about. LOL Boss came through and a solution was had about blocking off the parking lot. Downside is everything is still a go and I'll be busier than ever. LOL

    Mick...brent geese nav system shot. As for the peskies, I didn't hear anything but am so happy. Task lists with deadlines, what a great idea. And I was wondering what to do when I retired. Yup, you won't be able to avoid the Queen's platinum celebrations wherever you go. How long will they go on? You'll have to post a pic of the cream sausage tomato plant. It will probably take awhile for queues to settle down again, won't effect me, I'm not going anywhere.

    Waves to everyone else. Have a good weekend all...PPQP

    (Well, this is the second day that I got pushed off the thread just as I was posting... So glad I copied ahead of time!)

    Friday night:
    ď Mae all-

    PPQ, sounds like you have your hands full at work! Iím surprised that you would have to deal with the major stuff having to do with the driveway as a surprise - no fair! I guess the thing with the other worker will eventually be sorted... hopefully you can ignore it all and find some peace - good luck!

    Lav, really? Barefooted? Sheesh, that does not sound very tidy or civilized, goodness. Glad that you will have a chance to get your car all fixed up, thatís great. How are all the plants... any blooms yet? Do you still have a green house? How are the chickens doing (w/o the rooster, I assume...)
    I hoe you have some tome with your kids over the holiday, that sounds great.

    Mick, you and Julie win the prize for getting the most accomplished!! I love the image of that special tomato plant. Iím so glad youíll be out of a congested area for the Jubilee - wishing you some quiet wherever you go... 😉. Glad the rabbits are behaving (so far...) wishing you safe travels...

    Lav, no worries about me traveling - I will leave quite early tomorrow morning to drive the 1-hour to my nieceís house. Iím hoping to get there in time to help her set up for the after-graduation party. Then Iíll be able to go with her to the big sports arena where the graduation will be held... Iíll escape having to find a parking spot (and remembering where I parked &#128521

    The family leaves at crack of dawn on Sunday, and it will be just me and the dog... Iím looking forward to being around some ďfurĒ!

    Wishing all well as we head into this holiday weekend... be safe -Ē

    Re: May 22

    Hello everyone and how are we today then question mark hope everyone is doing well L4 stop it is pretty cloudy over here today but very very hot methinks the thunderstorm is on its way. I've just just come back from Huddersfield, I used to go shopping a lot in the past collar however I went there today and a lot of the shops have closed down full stop it seems to be the same in lot of these places all the shopping is being done online now. Plus obviously the High Street rentals crucify the shopkeepers. A lot of the big names are going and have gone. I am doing this on my phone at the moment, just in case you didn't guess exclamation mark both rabbits doing well come on fingers crossed. We are away next Saturday, however Julie is trying to see if we can get booked in a day earlier and leave on the Friday. The Jubilee celebrations start over here on the Thursday come on what they have done is rolled all the bank holidays in 21 so basically the whole lot starts on the Thursday and finishes on the Tuesday. I suspect there will be quite a few sore heads will that one!. We are not taking the car with us when we go away, everything is within walking distance well when I say walking distance about 6 miles is probably for this one way that we have to walk to go anywhere. I know on the Sunday there is a street market in Bridlington so the place will be absolutely horrendous to try and drive in hence why we are taking the car full stop from Bridlington within drive down to Nottingham, and the unit the van is going into to is virtually in the town centre full stop so there is no reason to take a car when we go down to Cornwall we will obviously because it is a lot more rural and there are quite a lot of places we want to see full stop hope everyone is doing well. My apologies for not addressing people on an individual basis but you know me with this phone! So take care and have a great weekend

    Re: May 22

    Good evening friends,

    We’ve had two quick moving storms so far today with the sun coming back after each so not too bad. Mother Nature is in charge of watering so I’m happy.
    Son & his family coming over tomorrow instead of Monday so it will be a busy day grilling & hanging out. Hope the weather cooperates

    PQ, so you take one day off & you’re missed!! The community gardeners hopefully are appreciative of your efforts.
    Hope the rest of your weekend is relaxed & undisturbed for a change!

    Cyn, glad you don’t have to do a lot of driving on this holiday weekend! Your plan sounds good
    Yes, the Amish farmers hop into the truck, barefooted after working out in their fields. They save their shoes mostly for dress up occasions haha. If they ask to be taken to a store or Walmart or somewhere they know to wear their shoes. Just heard yesterday’s storm brought a small F 1 tornado to a town in southern Lancaster County, not far from here. Oh boy, it’s liable to be a busy summer storm season again.
    My young hens are much happier & calmer since the rooster departed, don’t blame them. Just waiting for YB to transfer the oldest girls to the nearest Amish friend then I can move the young ones in their place. Always something to do here!

    Mick, the pandemic & global inflation has closed a lot of small businesses around here too, it’s sad.
    Smart leaving your car home I think. Sounds like driving & parking will be crazy during the celebrations. Travel by foot like you usually do, Lol.

    Hello to Pauly, Det & Sam,

    Hope everyone has a peaceful weekend!
