    July 24

    MAE ALL...

    Kicking off the thread as it looks like Mick was able to get out detecting. After a couple of visits to the community centre with wedding issues the evening was a success with no more requests. We're in for a hot one today so am heading out to get supplies early. Will check back in later.
    Have a great day all....PPQP

It was a good day though..it's the first time the 3 of us have been out detecting since my friends wife passed away. A good day out. I tried to get on here earlier but I couldn't. It was really sunny down in Lincoln, and yeit has been hammering down with rain all day here.

    Hey all,

    Guess what? It’s HOT here, haha!!!! 95 today, felt like something >100 with the humidity. Not swell
    Haven’t done much, just can’t cope with the heat out there. Thankful for the AC.

    PQ, that’s great news about your Xmas craft event. I know how weird it is to be talking about it in July but it takes the crafters time to get everything made
    I will take your rain/cool weather, whatever you have leftover. Nice you earned some brownie points with the boss this weekend, Lol

    Mick, glad you were able to get out with your friends after all this time. We’ve all been cooped up too long.
    Everything is dry here, too dry. I really need to go. Out again & water everything I watered this morning, ugh.

    Cyn, Pauly, Sam, Det - thing of all of you.

    Have a decent night everyone!

    Hello all - sorry to be away, but the starting up of the Festival is always a heavy-duty time. I escaped from Tahoe duties today and drove 3 hours into California to spend some time with my step-daughter... as I was driving over the Sierra Nevada Pass, fire smoke got thicker and thicker... I was concerned, but eventually drove out of the bad smoke. Now I read that it was a change of wind that brought the smoke into the Sierra foothills and the western part of Lake Tahoe region... looks like things will be better tomorrow, but we all still remember last year and how tough everything was here... hoping for the best.

    Good luck to everyone here who is dealing with so many issues!!! Sam, good job doing your “heart-work”, PPQ so glad all seems to be going well at the center, Lav, take care of yourself and those poor chickens, Mick, glad to hear that you’ve been out detecting - hoping the rain helps the heat! Pauly, we are here for you 💜. Det, hoping all is well...

    Take care all, and thank you for understanding that I may not be able to be here everyday... I will try, though!

    hiya Lav...do you want some rain sending over ?I can spare a wee drop.Its overcast now but very warm.how do the Amish cope with the heat?do they shed part of their attire ? have they a summer and winter outfit?

    hia pauly how are you ? thinking of you

    anyone heard from det?

    '...I'll never forget how happy I was when I saw my wife walking down the aisle towards me.

    My heart was beating fast and the excitement was unbearable.

    It seemed to take an age, but eventually there she was, stood beside me.

    I gave her a cheeky wink and said,

    "Get that trolley over here love; they?re doing three cases of Bud for the price of two!"

    I tried donating blood today .

    Never Again!

    Too many stupid questions.

    "Who's blood is it?"

    "Where did you get it from?"


    "Why is it in a bucket?"

    '...A man walks into a butcher?s shop.

    "Can you help me?" he says. "I keep thinking I?m a moth."

    "Not really, mate," says the butcher.

    "You want the psychiatrist next door."

    "I know," says the man, "but your light was on."

    Re: July 24

    Good evening friends,

    This afternoon’s heatwave busting ‘big storm’ was a joke. The ground barely got wet & nothing even registered on my weather station. Of course the sun came right back out too haha!
    I think a cold front coming from somewhere moves in over night, we’ll see what happens. Meanwhile everyone is still hot & miserable.

    Cyn, when I heard about the fire out west all I could think of was not again, poor Cyn. Glad you got away from it for a bit.
    Take care of yourself, we’re thinking of you

    Sam, driving in the city after living here for so long is just agony. I hope the trip to the airport wasn’t too bad.

    Mick, I guess I better get out & do some more watering since Mother Nature cheated us today.
    I have no idea how the Amish cope in this heat & humidity. Yesterday was Sunday so they were all out dressed in their finest. We drove past at least a dozen buggies, everyone was wearing coats & hats, bonnets, etc. I just could not cope with all that.
    You go ahead & send me whatever rain you don’t want, please

    Hello to Pauly & Det, check in guys.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL....

    Another nice quiet day at work and I got all caught up on my Xmas Craft Fair. Starting to get people to sign up, just have to vet the home based businesses, they are not allowed at this market. Will do one for them in the Spring.

    TG...nice that you were able to sneak off for awhile to visit your step-daughter. Glad the smoke dissipated and we'll keep our fingers crossed too.

    Sam...hope the trip to the airport was uneventful. Every time we hit 30C I just think at least it's not -30C.

    Mick...glad the 3 of you were able to get out detecting on Sunday, I'm sure your friend really appreciated it. It was a cool overcast 21 degrees today, back to the heat tomorrow. At least the tomatoes will ripen even after you take them off the vine. All is good here.

    Lav...that's been quite a stretch of heat for you. At least ours was broken up for a couple of days. Boss is back tomorrow but the accountant is off, works for me. Another short week for me, bridge on Thursday and I have Friday/Monday/Tuesday off. WooHoo

    Shout out to Det & Pauly. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: July 24

    Hello to all - I think there may be a new thread, but I don’t see it, so posting here...
    Back from my trip... it turns out that the smoke I drove through was from the fire in Yosemite, 250 miles away! That tells you how devastating these fires can be. Things are much better here today - the air quality and visibility is improving.
    But it’s all about the wind...
    Take care all - more soon -

    Re: July 24

    Hello everyone and how are we today then? Hope everyone is doing well. Another day of rain here, but it has just stopped. I am going down to see my brother tomorrow, I usually get some books for him from the charity shop. When they are reduced even further. I bought a lot of books for 10 pence each which in your money is 15 cents I was just flicking through them before putting them in a box to take down.and a plastic wallet fell out that someone had been using as a bookmark. I opened it up and found 3 dollars.

    It will be a long day tomorrow. Going down to see my brother then travel back then yoga classes at night.

    Hiya lav how are you then today? We had a fair downpour of rain this morning, and both my mad rabbits wouldn't come in! If things go the way the usually do, the rain should be on its way to you very very soon. I don't know why but I'm feeling very very tired at the moment. You take care and have a good day

    Hiya ppqp how are you today then?hope all is good with you. So the Christmas fair is on point is it? Get it advertised as soon as possible. Sounds like things are doing pretty well for you go for it

    Hiya teegee how's you today then?glad the air quality is improving. You wouldn't believe the stupidity of some people having barbecues outside in the grass on the hills in this weather, leaving glass bottles and broken glass around where the sun can magnify it and start a fire karma cigarette butts thrown away, there aren't too many accidents fires over here. Talking about fires, there was a fire in an old delicate cotton mill in Oldham they have just discovered 4 bodies in there all Vietnamese so there is a big investigation into that now here. Take good care of yourself.

    Hiya pauly how are you today?are things getting easier for you?and I don't mean that lightly. You take care

    Big shout to everyone else
