    Re: 11 September

    MAE ALL...

    Boss didn't come in till noon since he's staying tonight so I was able to get a few more things accomplished before he dropped more my plate. I am going to have to make a yearly calendar to show him when he has to complete certain things so it all doesn't end up with me and needs to be done yesterday requests. When things get overwhelming we both stop and realize we've really only been open for 7 months so there is still a lot of growing pains to go through.

    TG...7 weeks! no wonder you've got a lot of catching up to do. I like Lav's idea of getting some blood work done just to see. You take the time to regroup and look after yourself.

    Mick...I wonder if it's the same pall bearers for every stop. It was coolish here today and we are still blanketed in smoke from the BC fires. My eyes haven't quit stinging for a week now. Every time the wind would clear some smoke the sun would come through and there is still a lot of heat in it. The succession, thanks for that. It would sure be weird if he chose a different name, I'd be totally confused and would have to keep looking up who he was. LOL

    Lav...the last time I drove around my childhood neighbourhood it was very disappointing. Id' rather keep my memories intact. Busy at work is good, crazy not so much. LOL I'm sure you'll hear from your brother soon enough. I hope your niece does the right thing too but somehow I doubt it. You can always hope and maybe this will be the catalyst for her to actually do something about her issues. My son has been in a deep depression for about 4 weeks now and I was getting quite concerned. He hadn't been eating for awhile, at least when I've been home, and he was always in bed when I got home from work. The last couple of days he's been eating regularly and he texted me today to say he was heading up to a friends place to help on a carpentry job. That made me feel a lot better as his friends are a great support for him.

    I'm pretty weary tonight but knowing that I got the things done that I wanted to do should help with my sleep. I've been having some pretty strange dreams lately. Shout out to the rest of the gang and I hope we all have a restful evening....PPQP

    Re: 11 September

    Mae all -

    PPQ, here’s hoping all is well with you and that things are chugging along...

    Mick, yes I read that the coffin is lined with lead, so the honor guard definitely has a “heavy lift” while moving the casket. Over here we’ve heard so little about Princess Anne, but she seems wonderful from the reports and all the videos of the last years when she was at her mother’s side for events... very sweet.

    Lav, gosh I think I remember you being in that house (by yourself) when our original thread started ... I guess we’ve spent a lot of years here...

    I am trying to be patient with this tiredness... yes Lav, I think Long COVID is a contributing factor... and I felt awful this morning after yesterday’s Pfizer booster, but perked up after taking some Advil. I did get some things done after having a coffee or two!

    Off to slumber now - wishing all well -

    Re: 11 September

    hiya all how are we today then? hope all is well.Feeling a bit rubbish today ,blood sugars have dropped but apart from that ok.Was at the dentist earlier on ,just a check up ...all good so its a smiley badge for me .Weather is pretty good here today,

    hiya Lav how are you doing then ? all good .I remember working in a nick ,that was all concrete and it definitely had sad syndrome .I will be interesting to see what King Charles does ...his past is littered with comments about the rubbish of concrete ..He believes in a future based on the past in respect of nature ,buildings etc.I must say Ive got to agree with him there!!

    hiya ppqp ..how are you today? glad you managed to get some work done with the boss coming in .That is worrying about your son ,has he medication for it ,or is there anything he hasto do and is just ignoring it?I hope he comes out of it soon

    the pallbearers werent the same all the way through . though the individuals were if that makes sense

    In Scotland they were from the Royal Regiment of Scotland all the way to her leaving Holyrood Palace .
    Enplaning and deplaning from the C130 were the Queens Colour Squadron Royal Air Force
    From Buck House today it was 1st battalion Grenadier Guards.

    Its interesting ...now the coinage has to be changed ,all the red post boxes that have the ER Royal cipher have to be changed and all the companies who have the Royal Seal of Approval ie the label says by appointment to Her Majetsy the Queen ..they have got to reapply for Royal Warrant of approval.there is a 2 year window for that .

    hoping your son gets help ...and better soon .

    hiya teegee hope all is well .Ive got my booster on the 27th this month I think its the moderna this time .Princess Anne ,is a star ,she is the most hardworking Royal,followed by Sophie ....Edwards wife. none of them are after tea and medals ,dont suffer fools gladly ,but get on with what they do ...formidable ladies .
    you look after yourself and take care .


    well everyone else,take care hope you are well.

    Re: 11 September

    Greetings friends,

    We had a really nice weather day, supposed to be like this for a few more days, yay.
    Cooked a dinner for my son & his family to give them a hand. Dropped it off when I dropped my grandson off after school.

    PQ, keep your boss informed of what he needs to do & when until it gets to be habit with him. You’ll save yourself a lot of grief that way.
    Glad your son is coming out of his funk. It hurts to watch them suffer like that. Being with good friends always helps.
    Believe it or not we have gotten smoke from the west coast fires all the way over here. It’s amazing how far that stuff travels.

    Cyn, yes we have known each other for quite a long while now . I guess we’re close enough to being old friends real soon, Lol
    Hope your ankle is oK. My right ankle started hurting for no reason today, maybe it’s sympathy pains for you. Popped a couple of Ibuprofen. It’s fine now.
    Keep taking good care of yourself.

    Mick, do you check your blood sugar numbers? Or did you mean B/P numbers? My B/P is sometimes ridiculously low. I think I’m overmedicated. Then all it takes is one salty meal out in a restaurant somewhere & it’s suddenly too high. What a pain, huh?
    I hope the new king keeps up with his ecology work & makes some good advances.

    Hello to the rest of the gang, hope everyone is OK.
    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 11 September

    MAE ALL...

    It was an OK day today for a change. Boss didn't come in till 10am so that helped. Got my newsletter off to the publisher except for 2 articles that are going to take some time and concentration. Will do those in the morning.

    Mick...sorry you were feeling a bit rubbish today, hope you feel better tomorrow. Wow, a dentist trip with no surprises, that's gotta be a first in awhile. It's been awhile since he's been this depressed. At one point I did get him into a doctor to deal with anxiety/panic attacks and he was given something to calm him down so we could all get some rest. He was told he needed to follow up by seeing a mental health councilor but of course that never happened. He told me he should go up north to his friends place but just didn't feel like it. So I was glad to get the text that he was going, meant he felt better. Thanks for all the explanations of the pallbearers that was very interesting.

    Lav...what a nice jester on your part, cooking a meal for them. I'm sure they appreciated it. I agree about keeping my boss informed it's just that those things weren't on my radar as I hadn't been responsible for a few years. They're on my radar now. LOL Yes, he does much better with his friends around. They all used to be about 1/2 hour east of us but now they've moved up north, about 4 hours away. I'm sure he'll be gone for a couple of weeks and in a much better space when he comes home. WOW, you're getting the California smoke! Can you imagine what it would be like if you were closer?

    TG...yup, things are chugging along and getting done. For somebody who goes 50 miles an hour I can understand your impatience but you need to take some down time. I hope you got a good rest last night and had a better day.

    Shout out to Det, Sam and Pauly. Have a nice night all....PPQP

    Re: 11 September

    Feeling better today... and no issues with the ankle, thank you all for the good wishes...

    Mick, I’m glad to hear your info about Princess Anne and Edward’s wife Sophie... they definitely radiate strength and composure. One of the most strangely moving bits I’ve read is the description of the Royal Beekeeper having the hives wrapped with black mourning ribbon and going to each hive separately to explain to the bees that their monarch had died. They said he had to do it, otherwise the bees would leave the hives and not return. For some reason, I believe it!

    Lav, I agree, so nice of you to help with the cooking... I know your DIL is not really into that. Also so great that you are collecting your grandson after school- such precious time, and lots of memories.

    PPQ, I hope all things gets settled and smoother out at work. Ditto at home - it was good to hear you be a little relieved about your son’s plans... hope all continues to go well...

    Finally getting in a good rhythm of sleeping past 4 or 5 in the morning! My brain and body are a little confused I guess, but hopefully all will work out soon. I was not as tired today as I have been, so am relieved about that.

    Hello to all dropping by... May we be well...

    Re: 11 September

    Hello everyone and how are we today then? hope the Gang is doing well. Yet again today I went up to see the new van, they will be getting fed up with me haha. it gets his habitation check tomorrow afternoon, after that the little jobs that need doing and getting serviced, but bearing in mind tomorrow is poets day I doubt I won't get it till next week now. Not to worry. Yes at the dentist yesterday, no issues at all the sound of money not changing hands was good!

    Hiya lav how are you today then? Hope everything is doing well. Julie reckons it's my blood sugars level that drops I haven't a clue I would have thought more my blood pressure. It certainly makes you feel rubbish though. Feel a lot better today day thank goodness. I have still got a load of tomatoes to eat, some of them I am ripening off in a bag with bananas in it it. You take care and have a lovely afternoon.

    Hiya ppqp and how are you today then? Hope all is well. Glad

    Right folks y'all take care to hear your son is coming back to to some sort of normality now and I don't mean that in a facetious way either. How are things at work? It sounds like a bit of of hassle at the moment, as long as everyone does their fair share doesn't leave it all to you. You take care.

    Hiya teegee glad you are feeling better today yes I found that interesting about the bees as well, and bearing in mind King Charles's Theory on ecology etc he will be well pleased. I was up at 5 this morning, it's lovely seeing the day coming in before the sounds of humanity and machinery, just the sound of nature. Know that you are feeling good let's keep it that way full stop you take care and look after yourself

    Re: 11 September

    Greetings friends,

    Thought I better jump in & see how everyone is doing. I’m keeping myself busy with the usual stuff.
    My son & his family were very happy with their dinner last night. I guess I should do that more often for them.

    PQ, having an OK day is good haha! Sure beats the shi**y days, right? I hope your son finds some peace & happiness while he’s away. It’s hard when your friends are so far away.
    The smoke from the fires is supposed to arrive tomorrow. One year ago today I put a oic on Facebook of the smoky haze we had then, amazing really.

    Cyn, glad you’re feeling better. Rest as much as you can, healing takes a long time. I just read about a nurse who had Covid in March 2020 & she hasn’t been able to return to work due to constant SOB & neurological problems, so sad. Sleep is healing, keep doing your best

    Mick, my dentist insists on removing an old filling that doesn’t bother me a bit, ho hum. I go on the 23rd. Glad you got away without anything like that lol.
    I hope everything checks out in your new van so you can get going again real soon. Try increasing your protein a bit & see if that doesn’t help keep your blood sugar stable. Carrying snacks like peanut butter crackers helps when you get that low sugar feeling.

    Hello to all & wishing everyone a nice night!

    Re: 11 September

    Mae all - not much to report... I seem to have a new neighbor (upstairs?) who plays jazz on his/her radio/speakers non-stop... this is a new situation, so we’ll see... I may have to invest in some fancy earplugs...

    I finally got up the energy to clean my apartment, so that feels nice. Also was able to take care of some things in the To-Do list... so good enough day, I guess.

    PPQ, here’s hoping your son has a good connection seeing friends...

    Lav, I’m glad the kids appreciated your dinner for them - that was very kind. How is your garden doing? Are you putting some things under, or not yet?

    Mick, crossing fingers for all to go well with the van, that’s exciting. Good news on the tomatoes...

    That’s it for me tonight - sleepy, so will go to bed (with the fan on so I don’t have to hear the upstairs person’s TV on all night!)

    May we be well... 💚
