    Re: 25th September

    Mae all,

    I am safely ensconced in NW Connecticut! I arrived on Monday night, but as I am staying with a host, so I brought in food, etc. and then fell into bed! I worked with one of my beloved clients yesterday, and then later had long conversations with my “host”... she is suffering emotionally because someone she was seeing for years (she is 82!) has that person has “moved on”... so we had along evening of talking about that.

    I am doing okay, but the last day of driving was really hard... torrential rain in the mountain section of Pennsylvania, and then later In New York State... each time I had to pull off onto the side of the road... my (new, excellent) wipers weren’t keeping up with the deluge, and I couldn’t see the road, sheesh. In all these years of driving, that was a first...

    So yesterday was a day of trying to get my energy back, comforting my friend, working with my other elderly friend (who is unwell - actually both of them are unwell; one withA-fib, the other with the end of walking pneumonia and heart valve issues... oh dear). I am so glad that I am here to work with them both - they need a leg up. I have yet to connect with my ADHD client - she’s a trip!!!

    So, at this moment I am at The White Hart Inn (established 1806) — enjoying an excellent coffee and jam and cheese croissant...

    Mick, happy traveling, I hope everything goes well. Lav, congrats on the Sale, and thank you so much for your generous donation to help Ukraine, PPQ, here’s hoping this week is turning out to be quieter...

    Hello to everyone dropping by... hoping you are well -
    The stars at night lately have been incredible - I saw Jupiter at dusk, and awoke in the night to an incredible display - an entire constellation, it seemed... (Mick, I hope you get a show while you are traveling!)

    Be safe all -
    TG

    MAE ALL….

    Not sure if we broke the record but it was a hot one today. You’d swear it was the middle of August. Things have quieted down at work except for the accountant. I think she’s losing her mind. Enough said…LOL

    Mick…at least the lump of lead isn’t hurting. LOL It is now dark in the morning when I go to work, still sunlight when I come home though. Enjoy the trip with the new van, hope all goes well.

    TG…I’m sure your host is glad to have you to talk to. I’ve driven, well pulled over, in rain like that before. It can be very scary. Glad you made it safe and sound. Sounds like you’re going to have your work cut out for you.

    Lav...I'm sure you'll be posting soon. I'll check in on you later.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. Hoping to get the kid to BBQ something for supper tonight. Have a good evening all....PPQP

    Re: 25th September

    Last but not least - hello all!!!

    Nice day here, cool & sunny. Nothing like what Florida is dealing with today.
    I did get Luna in to see the Vet & she got a rabies shot BUT she’s apparently way too pregnant for spaying right now so it will have to wait. They estimated her to be about a year old & this will be her 2nd litter, what a shame. Now I’m wishing I had gotten her in there way sooner. We’re thinking of ways to possibly set her up in the chicken house where she’ll be out of the weather if it gets too cold. We will have to install a cat door, one not big enough to let other predators in there. Hmm, we will get it worked out. She’s really a very sweet cat, first one I’ve ever become attached to being a DOG person all of my life Lol

    Mick, you survived your jabs I hope, good to get them done.
    There’s no chance of hurricane Ian bothering you so I hope you really enjoying your next trip in the new van

    Cyn, Idid hear about the heavy rain up in the Poconos, sorry you had to travel through that. I don’t care to drive in that stuff either.
    Sounds like you have your work cut out for you this week, I wish you lots of luck. Take some time to relax yourself too

    PQ, I can’t believe you’re having a heatwave, wow! Today’s high temp was 68 degrees, that’s it!!1
    I think you should tell the accountant the mind she’s lost is in the parking lot, haha!!

    Hello to the others & hope everyone has a nice night!

    Re: 25th September

    Good afternoon everyone and how are we today? Hope everyone is doing well well. Yes still here the both my arms are aching the flu one not so bad. I went to yoga last night probably not my smartest move, I was up at 4 a.m. this morning I couldn't sleep properly. We are taking the van away on Monday just for 3 days
    Hiya lav how are things over there with you today?I am very similar to you, cats don't really do anything for me,but I guess they think the same about me..pity about Luna, but she has fallen on her feet with you .hope you have a good day today.

    Ppqp..a heat wave?,you need some of our rain .yes it's dark when I get up too.hows things doing at work?it seems most of the chaos happens towards the weekend.

    Just saw some pics of the hurricane in Florida. Caused a lot of problems .even a flood Ed fire station .

    Big shout to everyone else

    Re: 25th September

    Greetings friends,

    I just read about a hospital in FL that had it’s roof partially blown off. ICU patients on ventilators had to be quickly moved to lower floors. My brain would have exploded in a situation like that, grateful to be retired. Lots & lots of damage in FL, at least 1 confirmed death for now due to the hurricane.
    I just managed to get both of my kids to agree to come here Sunday for a pre-birthday celebration. Their old man is turning 70 on Tuesday, didn’t know what else to do. So we’ll all be together for the first time in a very long time for lunch & cake

    Mick, I’ve been waking up extra early this week too - who needs that??
    I get the feeling Luna knows that I’m trying to help her, she’s always very sweet with me. In addition to the cat boxes, food & water on the deck I now have a spot set up for her in the chicken house if she chooses to go there. She would be out of the weather & her new kittens would be safe. I’m going to introduce her to the space soon & see what she thinks.
    I hope you have nice weather for your initial voyage in your new van.

    Hello to PQ, Cyn & all the rest.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 25th September

    MAE ALL...

    I too was up at 4am, not by choice, the alarm company phoned. Texted the boss, no response. Logged into the system and cameras, everything looked fine. It was a motion alarm and no doors or windows were opened so I declined the call out to the cops. Let the childcare director know around 5:30am so she was aware of what had happened. Boss texted me at 8am to say he was actually awake at 4am and he didn't get a call or see my texts. I left early today and he said hope my phone works tonight or better yet no calls at all.

    Mick...sorry your arms are aching, just remember no pain no gain. LOL I bet you're excited to get on the road with the new van. Hope the weather is great for you.

    Lav...good job on getting your kids to agree on the pre-birthday celebrations. If I remember the last time they actually got together everything went ok. Hope it's the same this time. I think Luna is bonding with another mother. LOL She couldn't have ended up in a better place. Hope she goes for the chicken house, she'll need the shelter this winter.

    It'll be an early night for me. Hope everyone can get a good sleep....PPQP

    Hiya all...How's things with you?pouring with rain here today, so if anyone needs any just shout
    Yesterday was a day from hell for me..nothing went right. I had to take the van up to the dealer yesterday morning to get something checked out .bearing in mind I have just bought it,the log book is still in the post with the new name change on it.anyway,on the way I lost the front number plate. It was held on with the recommended adhesive pads. Failed. I drove all the way up to the dealer..no sign of the plate .now to get a new plate made I need to produce the registration documents..which were in the post. To drive with no plates is illegal and we were going away on Monday. I phoned the dealer up just on the off-chance...and he said that someone had found it on the road and handed it in to him..Lucky eh?

    Hiya teegee. Glad you got that journey done ..are you resting now?how are your friends?you take care.

    Hiya lav...firstly thanks for looking after the cats..you are a star must be a real change for her..feral to a life of luxury. Yes, the damage to that hospital was pretty horrific. The nursing staff did well. I think the water is starting to subside now. You take care and have a good day.

    Hiya ppqp..well hopefully you had a better sleep last night and that no alarms went off.the winds are building up here, don't know if it has anything to do with the hurricane in Florida, but it is certainly starting to blow. Are you still in hot weather,take care

    Right folks have a great weekend x

    Re: 25th September

    Good evening folks,

    Sometime overnight we will be getting our share of hurricane Ian. It won’t be anything like they saw in FL or even SC thankfully.
    Hope I can keep my cat herd dry enough on the deck, haha!!

    PQ, maybe you should just stay overnight at work so you can take care of problems as they pop up - just kidding
    Make sure the alarm company knows to contact the boss first before contacting you in the future haha.
    I actually haven’t had the whole family together. Last Christmas got messed up because my grandson got Covid so they all had to stay home, just daughter & her family came over. I think we’ll be OK at this point provided my DIL doesn’t go off the rails over some perceived insult. I’m going to make a big pot of turkey meatballs & sausage tomorrow so they can make sandwiches for lunch. May order a pizza or two for the kids.

    Mick, losing you vehicle tag is a nightmare. You are so lucky someone turned it in, really!
    I hope your weather clears for your Monday launch.

    Hello to Cyn, hope you are well.

    Hello to Pauly & Det out west & Sam here on the east coast & will likely be feeling Ian’s effects as well.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Quiet day with childcare closed so got lot's accomplished with the little stuff that keeps getting put off. Boss left at noon because he has to come back tonight since his part time staff keep flaking on him. The event on Saturday wanted to set up a stage extension and lighting today as they won't have enough time tomorrow. They were booked from 2:15pm - 8:15pm and at 4pm I phoned them and said nobody has shown up and I'm out of here in 1/2 hour and the building will be locked. That lit a fire under them and then the boss phoned to see how things were going and I said nobody is here. He is ticked, I told him I would wait till someone got here and at 4:30 the pastor showed up. I told him to phone the boss. I locked the building and my responsibility is now over for the weekend. Putting phone on mute!

    Mick...no more heatwave, it's been cool and overcast. We will be above normal over the weekend and next week but no heatwaves. I think I've got my fall weather. First, to have to go back to the dealership just after you bought the van is troubling but to loose the license plate is a real headache. So lucky someone turned it in, other than the dealership giving you temporary dealer plates I don't know what you could have done. I did have a great sleep and with phone on mute the weekend should go smoothly. LOL

    Lav...I saw the forecast for your area and thought oh no! Ian seems to be growing in strength again so I hope you're right about not getting the brunt of it. I read the first line to me and thought WHAT! then saw the just kidding. LOL The alarm company does know to phone the boss first and then after a few similar events was also told they had to let it ring at least 5 times before moving onto the next on the list. I guess it would help if the boss actually had his phone turned on. Duh! Oh that's right, I forgot your grandson got Covid. I'm hoping everything goes smoothly for you.

    Time to unwind and relax. I think I'll let the kid figure out what's for supper. Have a peaceful evening all....PPQP
