    We are going to a bbq this aft...thasnkfully it isnt raining ..Julies niece flies in from S Korea today ..she works out there ..havent seen her for 3 years

    hiya teegee....slow down a wee bit ...how are you doing ?you never seem to stop.!hope you are having a good weekend .

    hiya pauly det pie ..hope all is well

    Not saying Kate Bush has put on a few pounds over the years or anything, but her new single is called Getting a Taxi Up That Hill.

    The thing I remember most from High School was this one time in English class:

    Teacher: 'Now, for homework this week, I want each of you to write an original short story.'

    Me: 'Excuse me Miss, are we allowed to use strong language?'

    'Well, you're fifth-years now, so I'd say you're old enough to use colourful language in your stories. However, I'll only allow it if it's necessary to the story, and not just swearing for the sake of it. Why, what kind of story were you thinking about writing?'

    'Uh, the working title's Mr Tourette and the Ten Mile Tailback.'

    Police are looking for two armed men who got away with a fortune from a petrol station.

    It's been reported that they got away with two full gallons.

    I got caught trying to leave the petrol station without paying for a full tank of fuel . It's my own fault for pushing the mower up there in the first place.

    Re: 12th June

    Good evening friends,

    Sunny afternoon here after heavy rain all night. Nothing needed watering outside, that’s for sure.
    Happy to report we harvested a huge head of cauliflower & 2 zucchinis from the garden today. The groundhog will be pissed off, haha!!

    Cyn, I hope you have arrived at your destination safely. Seven hours is a long drive, at least for me. I have a hard time sitting that long. Hope you have a good week.

    Mick, sorry about Julie’s friend. Sounds like maybe she needs some professional help to quit - when she’s ready of course.
    Hope the BBQ was good today & the visit with your niece as well.

    PQ, I imagine you are taking the entire day off - I hope, LOL

    Hello to Pauly, Det & Sam. Hope everyone is OK.

    Have a nice evening all!

    MAE ALL...

    We are under a severe weather warning, expecting a month's rainfall in 3 days. Had a downpour a few minutes ago so the humidity has shot up.

    Mick...glad to hear you and the peskies stayed out of trouble. Julie's friend is just going to have to decide for herself, we've all been there. The community garage sale was quiet as far as foot traffic but that's ok, lessons learned for next year. I did manage to get a pile of work done while I was there. Hope the weather was good for your BBW this afternoon.

    Lav...I figure we won't have to water until July. LOL Nice that you were able to score the cauliflower & 2 zucchinis, I can just picture the recipe for them. You are correct, I'm taking the entire day off.

    TG...hope your trip was safe. Enjoy getting your friends sorted.

    Waiting for the next downpour wave, hoping there's a lot of thunder & lightening. Obviously I don't have to go anywhere. LOL Have a peaceful evening all...PPQP

    Re: 12th June

    Greetings friends,

    Hot & humid, 90 degrees today, yuck. Hoping to get outside before dark to continue on the weeding job which never really ends.

    PQ, sorry the sale wasn’t a huge success, sometimes that’s the way they go glad you reserved Sunday for yourself
    I ended up roasting half that huge head of cauliflower along with an equal amount of broccoli for dinner tonight - yum

    Mick, sorry you got rained on at the BBQ. It’s so hard to plan outdoor activities between rain & the excessive heat.
    I hope Julie’s dad came around OK. Was he a little dehydrated maybe? I wish I could get a few people I know to consider going AF. You really can’t get them to understand what you know & they don’t unfortunately. I may be hanging out with my daughter & granddaughter tomorrow for a short time while YB goes to his monthly fire co. Meeting, we’ll see.

    Hello to cyn, hope you are safe.

    Hello to Pauly, Det & Sam.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Checked in earlier and it didn't matter what I clicked on nothing registered. So I thought nope, I'll come back later and here I am. The city has declared a state of emergency out of an abundance of caution with all the rain we're expecting. We've had a couple of heavy downpours but nothing steady. Tomorrow is supposed to be the big rain event so we will see what happens.

    Mick...typical BBQ weather eh? Hope it didn't put a damper on the evening. LOL Glad Julies' Dad is ok, it is what it is so one day at a time. Another fitband, glad this one works for you. I don't need one of those to tell me how little sleep I get. Did you get your begonias planted?

    Lav...I'm glad I reserved Sunday for myself too. Didn't even think about work. I have got to figure out what I'm doing wrong when roasting vegetables. They always seem to come out soggy. Hope you get a visit in with your daughter & granddaughter tomorrow.

    Waiting for the next round of rain. Have a good night all....PPQP

    It posted!
