    MAE ALL...

    Mick...sorry to hear about Julie's Dad, you're probably right about him being better off at home, as long as it's not life threatening. 2 hours for luggage is pretty good considering all the horror stories I've heard about. We're still under heat warning here, the low tonight is 20C/68F, so grateful for my A/C. You take it easy and I hope things get sorted soon.

    Lav...on top of the heat we're starting to get some of the smoke from the BC fires. I was hoping it would miss us with the slow start to the fire season but with all this heat here it comes. I hope it goes away as I have a week of outdoor tennis lessons starting on Monday and cancelling them is a hassle. Fingers crossed.

    TG...has the music festival wrapped up? Hope you're getting some me time.

    Sam...new or new to you truck yet? Hope the rehab is a positive for you.

    Well the boss and accountant have managed to piss everyone off except me. They've been making changes to the benefits package (because of the prog coord) which doesn't effect me, I'm not on them. I'm covered under Alberta Senior Blue Cross which I don't pay a cent for. There are some perks to getting old. I just hope everyone hangs in and things settle down in September. There's been talk of quitting and that would make me very sad. I did run into the prog coord over the weekend and we had a brief conversation. Mainly how's it going? Oh, not good. Maybe she won't be coming back in September. Just keeping my head down and doing my job. I'm too old to be looking for another one. LOL

    Waves to Det & Pauly, hope you're safe and sound. Have a good night all...PPQP

    Re: 7th August

    Good evening friends,

    Still stinkin hot here, last night’s < that 1/4” of rain did nothing to help. Maybe tonight’s storm(s) will bring relief.
    One of my young chickens died from the heat yesterday, she was in my arms when she died. I feel bad, she was not quite 6 months old yet. We really need a break.

    Hello to PQ & Mick, glad to see you two
    Hello to Cyn, Pauly, Sam & Det. Hope everyone is OK.

    Think I’ll go look around & see where Luna has gotten to, Haha!!
    Have a nice night all.

    Re: 7th August

    Mae all - so sorry to be away... things have been very intense here, with an incredible project recording Orchestra pieces at the famous Skywalker recording studio here in California. More about that some time...

    I am now doing “cleanup” work here in NV... getting all things settled so that I can truly say “goodbye” to this festival and separate my mind and soul from it... though I will always love it and appreciate the musicians, I won’t be continuing on as support personnel or worker anymore.

    What does the future hold? I don’t know... so have been dealing with some big questions... trusting that all will become clear...

    Happy to hear that all are plugging away, tomatoes are ripening, kitties are growing in trust, travel plans are working out...

    I send wishes for easier weather and all good things - I hope to get back to posting regularly soon —
    Cheers

    Re: 7th August

    Good evening friends,

    Glad to report the 10 day heatwave is OVER!!!!!!!
    Today’s high temp was 86 & not nearly as humid. We had an inch & a half rain overnight so I’m sure that helped
    It’s nice being able to breathe when you step outside for a change. The chickens look happier too.

    Mick, it’s hard to believe your water levels are so low. It seems like you get plenty of rain, who knows? I hope things ease up soon, I worry about fires, etc,
    Sadly, last evening a 20 yr old Amish guy lost his life after jumping into a pond, he never resurfaced. Poor guy was scheduled to be married soon. He was the youngest of a big family nearby.

    Cyn, I am glad to hear you have decided to separate yourself from the festival. You have done so much for them over the years, it’s time for you to look out for yourself
    None of us know what the future holds, you surely will figure out your way. Stay positive & stay open, always.

    PQ, hope all is well with you!

    Sam, Pauly & Det, hello to all.

    Wishing everyone a decent night!

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...I thought of you driving home tonight. It was over 90F today and that was just 1 day. Glad to hear your heatwave broke. I hope the chickens continue to stay happy and healthy. Sorry to hear about the Amish guy, there's been a couple of those deaths around here too. One guy jumped out of his boat to save his dog the neither of them have been found yet.

    Mick...seniors not drinking enough seems to be a common problem. I'm glad that you and Julie are able to keep an eye on him. I have water with me all day long. So that would be a hot yoga class you attended last night. Was able to play bridge this afternoon with the proper number of people which it made it really enjoyable. The childcare director is meeting with the boss and accountant tomorrow, it could end up being a very heated meeting. Just as well I have tomorrow off.

    TG...good to hear from you and I'm glad you're finally on clean up mode. I think saying goodbye and separating your mind and soul from it is the right thing to do. You take your time making any big decisions. Knowing you it won't be long before you've got it all figured out.

    Waves to Pauly, Det & Sam. Picked up a couple of steaks on the way home so it's time to get the BBQ going. Have a good night all...PPQP

    Re: 7th August

    Give mae to everyone ..how are you doing?never slept much last night it was roasting last night and at 2 this morning it was still 20 degrees full stop so got up had a shower and that has been me since. The same is supposed to happen again today, I think the first break we get is on Monday. Went for a walk yesterday morning it was nice but was getting hot when we finished.

    Hiya teegee lovely to see you. What temperature future holds and grab it with both hands and use it to your advantage. There is a whole world out there waiting for you to explore karma you take care and enjoy yourself. Life may have changed for you, but don't let it pass you by.

    Hiya lav how are you doing, hope all is good for you. Sorry to hear about that young guy losing his life colour people don't comprehend the level of shock your body takes in cold water. So you finally have had water from the sky have you? I knew we followed you so I was should be here next week. Yes fire throughout the world seem to be a massive problem at the moment. Are your fuel prices going down? from a high of £2 5 pence it is at 1:58. Check my tomatoes yesterday and my prize tomato which was the size of a tennis ball I turned it upside down to find it hard got a bug eating into it. Hope you have a good weekend

    Hiya ppqp how are you then? How did the meeting go with the boss and the merry gang? Was it heated? A barbecue hope you enjoyed yourself! Take care and have a great weekend.

    Hiya pauly hope allis ok

    Re: 7th August

    Hello friends,

    It was a really nice day today, high was 82 degrees, not humid, blue skies with some pretty puffy white clouds floating around - just what I ordered
    We went out to get chicken feed, had lunch in southern Lancaster County & checked out a few shops. Nice!
    Is everyone enjoying the news pertaining to Trump this week? Haha! Apparently he is even dumber than I thought - taking highly classified documents out of the white house to his home in FL, what????
    Just heard there’s a possibility he could be brought up on 3 charges including espionage. What an a$$hat!!! At least we won’t have to worry about him running for president again in 2024 if he’s in jail

    PQ, drownings are so scary, it makes me very sad to hear these things. I’m guessing the guy here probably broke his neck diving into water that was maybe not as deep as he thought. We’ll see when they release the autopsy results. My chickens are quite happy & laying more eggs now that the heat is off. Stay cool!!!

    Mick, our local gas prices have come down quite a bit but still averaging $4.33/gallon. Hope the price continues to drop.
    Sorry to hear your tomato has attracted bugs - never fails. I meant to mention yesterday that older folks don’t sweat like the rest of us & don’t feel as thirsty as we do so they just don’t get enough fluids in /day. It’s good that you can keep an eye on Julie’s dad & keep encouraging him.

    Cyn, hope you are well, thinking of you!

    Sam, Pauly & Det, hello to all!

    Have a nice night everyone.
    I had an outdoor cat house delivered today & need to see if I can get Luna interested in checking it out

    MAE ALL...

    The day got away from me yesterday. Was updating my new laptop with new programs and trying to connect to our server. The boys sure make things difficult! Then a huge loud thunderstorm rolled in and we lost power. Rain and hail so I hope the garden survived for the party today. We've decided to have the dedication at the garden but then move indoors for lunch. It's just way too hot to stay outdoors.

    Mick...I hope your heatwave breaks soon. We'll get a bit of a break on Sunday and then right back to the mid 30's next week. Trying not to complain as they're calling for -40 in Jan & Feb. Since I was off yesterday I won't find out what happened at the meeting until later today.

    Lav...sounds like you had a good day yesterday. I'm glad to hear about Trump, I really don't want him running in 2024. Even if I don't live in the states he scares me. An outdoor cat house. I guess she's decided to stay. Does she pay any attention to the chickens?

    Shout out to the rest of the gang.
    Got to start thinking what needs to be done at the community centre for the party. Have a good day all....PPQP
