    Re: May 22

    Hello everyone and how are we today then? Hope all is well well. I am doing this on my phone there is a reason behind it. Firstly this morning I went on the conservatory roof clean the gutters and finished up the job I had done previously. Up all so cleaned the gable end UPVC which meant a ladder on the garage roof. Finally finished that like a circus balancing act! Meanwhile Julie was touching up the paintwork in the conservatory comma from the same hot as it had been previously painted from and guess what it's dried a different colour so Madame is now painting the whole conservatory exit stage left for me. Was supposed to be going metal detecting but land is very scarce at the moment. Jeeves is now back in his not-so-happy state, I don't know what's up with him. I have given him medication so we shall see what happens. Cloudy over here today but very very warm full stop hope everyone is doing well well take care and have a great day

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...OMG I thought you were going to say you were sitting in the emergency ward after falling off the ladder that was on the garage roof!! I'm surprised Julie hasn't killed you yet. So I'm ok if you're just going for a paint run. Has Jeeves stopped molting yet? He's lucky he has you to pick up on things in the early stages. Hope the quick care fixes whatever has started. Sunny over here but cool with strong winds.

    Not up to much today other than cleaning and sorting odds and sods. It will be a low key day again today.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. I'll pop back later and see what everyone else is up to. Have a great Sunday all.....PPQP

    Re: May 22

    Greetings friends,

    Not sure where yesterday went, haha! Never got around to posting here, that much I know!
    We were invited out to dinner by our son yesterday, so that’s probably what threw me off my game. Shock, Lol. Just had a big thunderstorm roll thru here & I hope it took the heat & humidity along with it, ugh. It’s been disgusting outside. I thank God & the Universe for my central AC

    Mick, it may be time for Julie to tie you to a chair. You make me nervous all the way over here!!!! Stop it!!!!
    I had to pitch a fit to stop YB from getting on the tractor after lunch to cut grass. It was was over 100 degrees with the humidity again today - too hot for that BS activity! I sure hope Jeeves perks up again. He’s got a very delicate system apparently.

    PQ, glad you’re enjoying an undisturbed long weekend
    I did a little cleaning this morning as well so no one better make any mess. I have zero patience for that anymore haha! I have several projects in the works, just waiting for the weather to settle down before turning on the machines. Not risking power surges, no way.

    Hello to Cyn, hope you are OK.

    Pauly, Det & Sam, hello to all of you.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: May 22

    Hello dear friends... so sorry to be AWOL...
    short version of the story; I got a call on Tuesday night from a decades-old friend. Her mother is 106(!), she has 3 paid caretakers plus family - 2 caretakers got COVID, and the family Was headed to Mexico City for a family wedding. One family member was going to have to stay home from the trip unless they found a sub - so I got the call! I drove up on Wednesday, and got a quick course in taking care of an elder. Fortunately she is a dear soul, and very forgiving- she has some short-term memory loss, but told me story after story about her childhood in a farm in MN, how the town doctor got her into education,,etc. I was a nervous wreck cooking lunches and dinners for her, but it all turned out in the end...tomorrow I will see some friends close by, (where I lived for 25 years) stay over with another friend and head back to NE on Wednesday. Sunday I start my dog-sitting gig in a city an hour away from my apartment (my nieceís) after seeing my grandniece graduate from hi school. So, please know I am thinking of you all, even if I miss a few days...
    Mick, ditto what Lav said!!!
    PPQ, it sounds like things are going well for you - congrats!
    Lav, what a nice thing to be invited for lunch. I wish we could mix up our weather... it is a hi of 60 (maybe) here, and I didnít bring a coat!

    Wishing all well - take care

    Re: May 22

    Hello everyone and how are we today? Hope the world is being good to you all. Very warm over here but again overcast with a promise of a massive thunderstorm tonight. Not been up to much today comma and actual back been out playing with my drone, I have had this fear of flying it over water in case I lost it. Today I flew it across and up and down over the top of a reservoir. Considering it was pretty windy it did ok and yes I never lost it! Jeeves is a lot better today day-to-day have limited is outside time to an hour in the morning an hour midday and an hour at night just to make sure he doesn't spend the day munching grass but definitely he seems a lot better again today. Julie has gone down to see her dad, the report that at the care assistant that comes to look after him put in this morning seems to indicate that he isn't too well. Up one of the signs of the advancement of dementia is an unwillingness to get out of bed and 3 days in a row now he has done that. We shall see what happens.

    Hiya ppqp..no never fell off the ladder though it came pretty close at one point..my feet slipped. Jeeves is still shedding his fur but nowhere near as bad as he was previously, he almost looks like a rabbit again! You take care and have a nice Monday

    Hiya lav and how are you today then? hope all is well with you and yours. I think the only chair Julie wants to tie me into is an electric one! Yes you are right Jeeves has got a really delicate digestive system we all know that the only one that doesn't is him. Take care have a great day day I will send your thunderstorm back after we have had it tonight!

    Hiya teegee how are you today then? You do some travelling about and I thought I was bad! As long as we know you are ok that's the main thing you are part of this gang now! Take care have a great day and first and foremost look after yourself

    Right folks time to go..have a lovely day .

    Re: May 22

    Good evening friends,

    Last evening’s thunderstorms actually cleared the air, today was nice, mid 70s & sunny. Finally spring is back, haha!!
    I need to get back to my works, was afraid to have my machines on last evening while the storm was raging.

    Cyn, Wow, you have been a busy gurl
    Taking care of the really old ones was always interesting. They have greta stories to tell & they don’t know that you may not know what you’re doing, Lol. They are usually happy to have someone to talk to.
    You’re gaining all kinds of experience, good for you! Good luck with the rest of your travels. I think we did get your weather, thanks!

    Mick, if you could just keep those storms moving east I’d be happy
    Your flowers look great & I’m glad you didn’t suffer any injuries. Jeeves & Bonnie are depending on you, don’t forget that.
    There’s a lot of reasons the elderly refuse to get out of bed. You kind of have to strongly encourage them while lowering their feet to the floor & transfer them to the chair quickly before they catch on to what you’re doing. And wear a smile the whole time . They may forget but we know getting out of the bed is good for your lungs, digestion, muscles, etc. the old adage ‘use it or lose it’ is very true.

    Hello to PQ, hope your day was fab!

    Hello to Pauly, Det & Sam.

    Be well everyone,

    Re: May 22

    morning all,
    finally made it through the wedding extravaganza, cold raw wet day it was. now I'm trying to play catch up at work after taking a month to work at home. If I could afford it I'd retire in 2 shakes.
    A wedding event makes it clear I made the right choice in quitting the drink, which lead me to realize how grateful I am in finding this site which was very instrumental in the quit. So to all you good folks here, THANK YOU!

    Re: May 22

    He hello hello and how are we today then question mark hope everyone is doing well. spent the last 20-minutes driving upper Road in a traffic jam I will put a picture up of what it was. The weather over here today is absolutely glorious again very hot and sunny as well. rabbits are doing well fingers crossed.

    Sam glad the wedding went well. I have got to agree with you, the first time I ever went to a wedding after I quit drinking, it wasn't so much a nightmare the nightmare was trying to get sense and talk to people who are full of booze and talking complete and utter broken biscuits. I wonder how many got up the next day with that feeling never again! Hope you are ok friend

    Hiya lav how are things with you. Hope you like the good weather I sent you! Julie's dad got out of bed this morning no problem at all in fact by the time the carer got there he was up and dressed! Not a lot happening over here today, it was quite funny last night after I took the picture of the peony rose a lady walked up the street knocked on the door and asked if it would be ok to take some pictures of them. you can't help but feel that little sense of achievement hope you have a good day day and the machines are running full pelt!

    Hello everyone how are we today..


    And now the traffic hold up.....you ready??
