    hiya Lav ...can you send some rain? will send some back at a later date ...well done on the craft fair result.My bonce is ok now..no doubt I will bang it again!have a good day.

    hiya teegee lovely to "see"you .You have been through the mill physically and mentally ..and to a certain extent still are ..you tried to compensate the mental grief by increasing your physical activity ..unfortunately the body as we get older fights with the brain..happens with us all.just look after yourself ...and yep you are fright ..when you get hacked off with people you just move on ..take care of your good self .

    hiya ppqp ..how are you doing?hope all is well ..did you get the lads to clean up for you?Are you back in work tomorrow?

    hiya Pauly ..how are you ?

    Sam Det hows things?


    I hate it when you're on the toilet and you notice there is no toilet paper left.

    Then you have to walk with your trousers round your ankles to get another roll.

    Anyway, I'm nearly at the corner shop now.

    Brits have been advised not to drink alcohol in the current heatwave
    .

    ... unless it's a work meeting.

    Choosing the next prime minister is like deciding which portaloo to use on the third day of a rock festival!

    Just burnt my Hawaiian shirt whilst ironing..

    Probably should have used aloha setting.

    I was driving along when I suddenly disappeared into a portion of sour cream and
    chives...
    I didn't see the dip in the road!

    If you see a dog stuck in a hot car this summer make sure to follow these steps:

    Step 1 - Take a picture of the dog and the registration

    Step 2 - Smash the window and carefully remove the dog

    Step 3 - Steal the car

    MAE ALL...

    Morning Mick...our heat wave finally broke, we're at a decent 17 today with rain in the forecast. I've been hearing you're going above 40 next week. Way too hot. You stay inside and try to stay out of trouble. The cleaning is ongoing, the more I stay in the more I find that needs doing. Yup, back to work tomorrow. Will be interesting to see if the boss responded to my evaluation. I have another great nephew, he was born just after midnight.

    Shout out to the gang. Will pop back later to see how everyone is doing. Have a great day....PPQP

    Re: July 17th

    Good evening friends,

    Sitting on the deck, temp down to 79 degrees but it’s very sticky with lots of humidity. Thankful I thought to get my hair cut last week, haha!
    Unwinding after all of yesterday’s activity so I haven’t done much today.

    Mick, my head hurts just thinking about yours, haha but glad you’re OK. Sorry about the excessive heat, hope it doesn’t last much longer. We always have storm watches going on these super humid days so we’re not surprised when the skies suddenly open up on us. I’ll send some your way for sure!

    PQ, now that you’ve got the boys cooking & cleaning teach them how to vacuum too, Lol
    Congrats on the new nephews, the family is growing

    Cyn, saw your post & I’m sorry you’re feeling so tired, etc. You have had so much going on the past year +, you could also be dealing with some long Covid symptoms. I keep reading how the medical community needs to step up & recognize this & get a treatment plan going for so many affected. Please keep yourself first in line, everyone else can wait! Glad to hear you are passing the baton on to the new folks, it’s their turn. Take care

    Hello to Pauly, Sam & Det.

    Have a decent night all!

    Re: July 17th

    Hello dear friends,
    Thanks for the support from all - I am trying to re-train myself and move into “teaching” mode here. I think all will be well, but I think/hope that it will be a relief to be officially done In August. 😉

    Mick, I forgot to mention your “noggin attack”... I sure hope any other possible “attackers” stay away, and that this heals soon.

    PPQ, sounds lovely that you have 2 new nephews... enjoy!

    Lav, I think it is possibly Long COVID. My oxygen never gets above about 92, and I feel like my heart’s working hard even though most often the pulse rate is not excessive. I get out of breath when I bend forward, and that reminds me of when I was sick. Ah well, just something to deal with, like we all have.

    I heard today that Mayo Clinic says the BA-5 variant is not susceptible to the previous vaccines - anyone else hear that? And that it is not detected as easily by the at-home tests? Aaargh. I have decided just to mask up in public situations... I feel lucky to have escaped so far...

    Sending love and care to all our people -hugs, Pauly, yes it will come in waves - Take care all 💜

    Re: July 17th

    Hello everyone. From a crisp sun fried North West. We have extreme heat warnings all over the television etc, all the blinds in the house are drawn and we are fans on everywhere full stop went out this morning into the garden give it a really good watering, sat outside for a little while but back inside now full stop looking at the news this morning I see 3 people drown jumping into lakes and reservoirs. Ok it may sound like fun and everything else, but actually they are putting the rescue lives in danger as well. I've put the rabbits tunnel and house out for them, but at the moment they are in the garage to Redditch darker and cooler. Glad to report have bumped my head again today, so that's a result. I see there I've been shooting in Illinois a lot to be honest I haven't really seen the details on it. I would suggest it is time for the people to change the gun laws and not wait for the politicians. There may be a clause a new constitution about the right to bear arms, but I'm sure somewhere it must say the right to have safe secure and healthy life as well.
    Hiya lav how are you then?I think the temp here now is 87 degrees.,but will rise as the day goes on. Tomorrow midday is forecast 94 degrees..crazy. have a great day.

    Hiya teegee..you may be right..it may be long covid, but you have had a lot to deal with ..well done though on handing over the reins..the same over here..no one hardly masks up now...pandemic?what pandemic. That seems to be the reply...you take care.

    Hiya ppqp..hope all is well .I'm staying out of trouble. Tell your boss we have evaluated you...and his job is in jeopardy. Take care have a good un.

    Hiya pauly big hugz you doing ok?

    Re: July 17th

    Greetings friends,

    Under a big storm watch & it’s raining like crazy at the moment. There’s always potential for tornados in these storms so I’m paying attention!!!
    Finished up a special order pillow for a craft fair customer today, she will be picking it up at some point.

    Cyn, the medical community is scrambling trying to find best way to treat people with long Covid. This is going to be an ongoing problem, for sure. Just be as kind as you can be to yourself, no over-doing things. An O2 sat of 92% is not great. If it dips below 90 you should head to a hospital, seriously. Take good care

    Mick, I love that bunny tunnel. It looks a lot like the one I had for the grandkids, Lol
    Staying cool is a full time job this summer & just about everywhere too. This storm system will not be bringing our temps down any, that’s sad. It was somewhere between 88 + 90 here today. Mid-high 90’s predicted the rest of the week. Stay cool & stop hurting your head!!!!

    PQ, hope your day was fabulous

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

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: July 17th

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...actually my youngest is constantly vacuuming. LOL The problem with the way they clean they never quite finish the job. I on the other hand won't start if I'm not going to finish. LOL We got rain today and it was only 13C, very nice. But the rain has stopped, the temps are rising and boy is it ever humid out there. It's nice that you get requests from your craft sales. Any Xmas requests yet? It was a busy day, trying to figure out what the boss promised everyone wanting to book long term rentals. He's now got the hall booked from October to the following March so I guess no more event rentals. That's fine by me, less stress.

    TG...I'm sure it'll be a relief to be finished in August. Sorry about the health issues, it does sound like long Covid to me too. When my lung collapsed my O2 level had to be at least at 93 or they put the oxygen back on. If it was below I learned to take a couple of deep breaths and it would raise it up. Yes, I heard that about the BA-5 and also immunity from having had Covid doesn't work either. I always wear my mask when I'm out and about. You take it easy and make yourself a priority.

    Mick...you're going to have to start wearing a hard hat. The tunnel and your yard looks great. Watching the news from the UK right now, with schools closing because of the heat. They say your houses are build to stay warm, not cool off. You stay well hydrated, hopefully it'll pass soon. I'll tell my boss I've been fully evaluated LOL. Taking Friday's off is not working out too good with the amount of work I face Monday morning. I think I'll switch my days to Wednesdays, it's usually pretty quiet in the middle of the week. I will be playing bridge on Thursday but will be working on Friday, boss has the day off.

    Waves to Det, Sam and Pauly. Have a good night all...PPQP

    Re: July 17th

    Mae dear ones -

    Great to hear your news, even if it is full of heat and stress... I am afraid that it is the future for all around the world. My heart longs for England to be England, the Prairie to be Prairie ,,etc. I have to get used to the fact that the past is gone now, in so many ways...

    As I drive across the country, I see such changes... but I have to remember that mine is just one tiny lifespan in millennia... I guess I got lucky for most of my life!

    Everyone sounds good... but Mick, seriously.., what is the message that the Universe is trying to get you to see? (Kidding, kind of). Loved the bunny tunnels! Fabulous. Good luck, and WATCH OUT overhead.,, 😉

    Sending lots of love to all who stop by - Pauly, hugging you -

    Cheers all -
