    June 26

    Time for a new thread kids, happy Sunday

    Hot as you can get here today, the sun seems extra strong or something.
    I have been feeding a stray cat who has 5 kittens following her around. They spend most of their time hiding underneath one of YB’s trailers he has parked in the meadow area, out of the way. For some reason the kittens brought themselves all the way across the yard & decided to explore underneath the deck. Well the dog found them & completely lost her sh*t, haha! They were scared but unharmed & made their way back to the trailer area where the dog cannot go because of the electric fence, geez. I can’t tell how old they are but they move pretty darn fast when they want to. Too much excitement for a hot day!

    Mick, I hope your trip is fantastic with decent weather.

    Cyn, you sound like me, forgetting to eat when you’re busy! Better hang some pot it note reminders to feed yourself once in a while.

    PQ, hope the weekend has been al yours

    Pauly, love to you!

    Hello to Det & Sam.

    Have a good night all!

    Mae all,

    Mick, thank you for the shot of Tewkesbury... beautiful shot... so lovely that it still has grounds and space around it... Here’s hoping that your getaway will be peaceful as well...

    Lav, what a story about the kittens... my friends I was visiting in WI have a sweet cat that showed up in their doorstep a year ago, half-starved. Shortly after arriving she had a litter of 7 kittens! My friends kept one and gave the rest away, but have had one return, so there is are multi-generations there. I have never been a big fan of cats, but I did get to know and love these... except for them catching baby birds (grrrr). Ah well, nature. Your poor beagle, good thing she didn’t have a heart attack! Here’s hoping that you have cooler weather soon...

    PPQ, hoping that all is well with you, and the Center is plugging along. Take care.

    I am trying to wrangle the minimum needed for going out west to the music festival.. I have no official capacity this year, so things “should be” easier... we’ll see...

    Wishing all a good Sunday night and a good start to the week.

    Love to you Pauly, sending thoughts your way💙

    Hi to all stopping by...

    Re: June 26

    Firstly before anything. Lovely to hear from you Pauly.. I guess it was a real shock and the I think they have got a cheek asking you to go back to work .take your time and grieve .we are all thinking of you.
    Last night and today has been a real nightmare. On the way down yesterday, the van was losing power, and at one stage I thought I would have to stop..got to the campsite just..and then the crap starts. Phoned the breakdown at 1600 yesterday..yep we will get someone out..another 6 phone calls. Lots of promises no breakdown people.
    2320 last night...there will be someone there at 7am..no, nor 8 or 9 or 9 50 or 10.55. As promised. By this time I'm losing the plot. The choices being I try and find a garage myself..or limp the vehicle home. I thought it was either the fuel filter or the dpf..diesel particulate filter. Found a garage and arranged to try and drive the van over ,,as I did so Julie gets a message from the breakdown firm saying there was an engineer en route. He did the dpf and then followed me to the garage where they changed the diesel filter. It is running well now though tomorrow will be the test. We stayed another day here, it was too late to travel. So just been out for a meal ..I am full now..has a walk round Tewkesbury Abbey and the town. Really oldy world.head off for Cornwall in the morning20220627_163501.jpg

    Re: June 26

    Greetings friends,

    Pauly, thank you for stopping in, I hope you know we all care very much about you
    Getting over such a shock will take time. Don’t let anyone rush you, please. How’s the rest of your family doing? We will be here if you need us, take care of yourself.

    Cyn, I’ve never been a cat person either. I had to adjust to the one YB brought with him when he returned years ago. She’s just a grumpy old rescue, haha. I don’t mind having an outdoor cat or two because they help themselves to the filed mice & other things that would end up in the chicken house. They work for their feed
    I hope your time at the festival is easier than in the past so you can just enjoy it for a change.

    Mick, sorry about the breakdown, geez. Sounds like you have things sorted out & can continue on your journey. The pics are beautiful, thanks for posting them.

    PQ, hope your week is starting off on the right foot

    Hello to Det & Sam.

    MAE ALL...

    Well, I posted yesterday but apparently the thread didn't like what I had to say. LOL Just wanted to let you know that the laser treatment went really well, I was in and out in 4 minutes.

    TG...it's nice that you can go to the music festival and not have to work at it. I hope you have a great time.

    Pauly...good to see you popping in. You just take all the time you want, I'm sure you're still in shock.

    Mick...sorry your trip started on the wrong foot. Sounds like you've got things sorted though. I hope you have great weather. Thanks for the pics I just love seeing where you go.

    Lav...I think that cat had your number. I wonder if someone just dropped them off. I'm feeling a bit down today so it'll be an early night and I'll loose myself in my book.

    Hope you all have a peaceful evening....PPQP

    Hiya all. Well we left Tewkesbury this morning and drove into the rain ��..some really narrow roads,but we are now here at Tintagel in Cornwall. We are actually overlooking the sea and ther is a Hooley blowing. It's great watching the sea on the rocks. Van did well..thank goodness .hopefully finished its silly moods.
    Hiya pauly..Big hugs to you .yes you lost someone wonderful, but keep him close in your heart and memories as I'm sure you do.

    Hiya ppqp glad the laser treatment was OK .hope you are feeling better too. What's the book you are into?

    Hiya teegee hope you are good. Yes Tewkesbury was fantastic. Some real oldy world buildings..Black and white houses..there is a complete section being refurbished in its contemporary style. I have just set the television up in the van..and what's on?Wimbledon tennis..Julie loves It. This is the first year she has been able to watch it.. she was usually at work..not for me..I'm going for a little walk despite the rain.

    Hiya lav. How are you doing?how is the zoo doing?rabbits n cats?I am not really acat person though many years ago,on nights there was a real bruiser of a cat used to greet me. I called him Harry. Torn ear and bits missing definitely not a show cat.have a good day.


    This is the view from the front seat in the van

    Re: June 26

    Good evening friends,

    Real nice day here & tomorrow is supposed to be the same. I made a date with my grandsons for tomorrow. We’re going to pick them up in the morning & drive down to Elk Neck State park in MD where the Chesapeake Bay & Elk River meet up. Then we’re treating them to their favorite seafood lunch, fresh from the bay. They’ve been sitting home in the house doing nothing since school ended so I figured it’s time to light a fire under their butts & make them do a little hiking in the fresh air & sun, haha!

    PQ, great to hear your procedure was so quick & easy. No down time with that sort of thing either, awesome.
    I think everyone has my number when it comes to food - dogs, chickens, cats, birds, grandkids haha!!

    Pauly, everyone has their own reaction to death, especially a sudden passing. They will all heal in their own time, you will too
    Not too far from her is Lincoln University (the first black college in the US). The students have been known to set dogs & cats loose at the end of the spring semester, instead of taking them home which doesn’t help the stray population around here.

    Mick, wow you do have the bird’s eye view of the ocean there! Hope the rain takes it easy on you.
    We camped in a popup camper on a beach in MD/VA area one year & I thought a storm was going to lift us up & drop us in the ocean, haha. Have fun

    Cyn, hope you are well.

    Hello to Det & Sam.

    Take it easy everyone,
