    Greetings friends,

    Much easier day today haha. Younger grandson is here - eating!!!! Haha!
    Still warm here, 70’s & partly sunny but I know we will soon be in for a big change.

    Mick, so sorry to hear Jeeves is poorly today. My goodness, you have done so much for him,. At some point our efforts make little to no difference no matter how hard we try. Hoping for the best for him & for you as well. Get some rest so yo don’t end up sick too

    Hello to Cyn & Slo.
    Cyn, glad to hear you enjoyed. The family wedding with your family. I’m just realizing we have none to look forward to in our family, all the nieces & nephews are married now. Oldest grandson will be 14 on the 27th but I think it will be a long wait for him haha.

    Slo, hope your stay at your daughter ‘s is nice. Glad you got out of the windy weather. Hope you’re feeling strong & getting around OK.

    PQ, hope your weekend has been good!

    We didn’t win the lotter y last night so the grand prize for Tomorrow’s drawing could be > 2 BILLION dollars - Wow!!!!

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 6 Nov

    Mae all - I had a nice Sober Brunch with friends... it is great to have that particular thing in common...

    The rest of today I have been “drilling down” little by little in this apartment (that I moved into but have not really organized for my life...). Slow as she goes, little by little.

    Happy full moon to all! I forgot to look out as it was rising; but I just now caught a glimpse, and it seems to be extra light-filled, shining like polished alabaster...

    Mick, good luck with Jeeves, it’s hard when their little bodies are having difficulties - I hope you got some extra rest.

    PPQ, here’s hoping that your weekend has been good!

    Lav, I’m glad if you had a little downtime today (outside of cooking for grandson! - he seems to like your house best!&#128521

    SLO, good luck at your daughter’s house.., I hope your time there is safe and healthy!

    Cheers to all -

    Re: 6 Nov

    I forgot my iPad at daughter’s house, so now have to type on my phone. So short posts from me this week!

    What a relief that Jeeves turned the corner, Mick. How cute that he knows he gets a back & tummy rub too!

    It was a gorgeous, sunny day out today. I love soaking in the sun on my balcony.

    How great that your grandson can help you out now, Lav! It’s fun for him to take care of the kitty too.

    Bittersweet at the family wedding, without your husband there with you, TG.
    My husband didn’t even dance with me once at any of our three daughter’s weddings, and that was a real turning point for me in wanting a divorce.
    Isn’t that a weird time warp to go back and see people from your childhood, and they’re mostly all still there?!

    I like the “knock knock” pondering, Mick! Thanks for the smiles.

    I crashed yesterday for a nap too. Geez! Today I’m managing to stay awake so I can go to bed early, so I can get up early to go babysit little grandson tomorrow.

    That’s enough tiny typing for now!

    Re: 6 Nov

    Good evening friends,

    Today was the last of the 70’s for a while. We really did have an extended warm season.
    The kids are all off school tomorrow & I think my granddaughter may be coming out for a visit, that would be nice.
    YB picked up his brand new Chevy 2500 pickup truck today. Glad he’s using his Amish money for that expensive thing. It’s bigger than any truck he’s ever had & a person my size needs a Hoyer lift just to get inside, Lol. I never drove the last truck he had cause it was big, there’s no chance I’ll ever drive this thing.
    I see there’s a new hurricane pointed at FL & the east coast, oh boy.

    Cyn, making your new place your own takes time. As long as you’re comfy & can find most things you’re OK haha!
    Yep, I didn’t do a whole lot today & that’s fine with me. I voted by mail several weeks ago so all I have to do tomorrow on Election day is wait for the results to come in

    Mick, glad to hear Jeeves is OK. Poor guy has been thru a lot, so have you.
    My zoo residents all seem to be fine although the outside cat Luna will have to try to stay warm with our weather changing. She doesn’t want to come inside, I’ve tried to invite her inside.
    I would have to find the ‘happy medium’ too haha!!

    PQ, what’s the word? Hope all is well.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 6 Nov

    MAE ALL...

    Baby it's cold out there!!! Winter arrived again on Saturday, 1F and snowfall warning, Sunday wasn't much better. Today woke up to -6F, a foot of snow and another snowfall warning. It snowed all day, temp stayed around -2F and a wicked north wind making it feel like -17F. Snowfall warning still in effect!

    TG...it was a good weekend, I did nothing except watched taped shows. Had to go out once but thankfully not far. With the ice, snow and winds there have been so many spin outs/accidents. I'm just thankful my heating bill is paid. I don't think you've been home long enough to make your apartment yours. LOL It'll all get done and you'll feel at home in no time.

    Slo...oh the thought of soaking in the sun on a balcony! Did you manage to stay awake this afternoon? Have fun with your grandson tomorrow.

    Mick...I'm so glad Jeeves turned the corner. Man you two have been through a lot. It's so cute that he now wants a back and tummy rub after his medication. Who is wrapped around who's little finger. LOL So impressed with your 14th century statue find, well done. Nice that you are all sharing the prize money with the farmer. No calls from work over the weekend. Have to say that since the boss hired part time evening and weekend staff when I get home from work at night, I don't think about work. Whatever happens the boss will get the call and have to deal with it.

    Lav...congrats on a successful craft fair. I don't remember if I told you that Alberta Health Services is causing me grief over the concession I was planning on running at my craft sale on the 18th & 19th? Post covid there are all these new regulations and the Church that was going to do the concession in support of Ronald McDonald House (a place where families can stay when their child is in hospital) isn't going to qualify. They have already spent money on some of the food they were going to offer. I have been thinking about it all weekend and am just sick about it. How come the kids are off school tomorrow? At least you'll get a granddaughter visit in. She probably doesn't eat as much. Wow, a new truck for YB. I guess the Amish taxi service will continue. Glad all the zoo residents are doing good, I'm assuming that includes Stella.

    It was a busy day today. Staff meeting at 10am then organizing for a retirement tea for our preschool teacher, had 30 minutes to set the whole thing up as there was a program running in the room till 12pm and the tea started at 12:30pm. Didn't get lunch but got lots of desserts. LOL I just ignored everything else that was going on until the tea was over at 2:30pm. Nice way to spend the afternoon.

    Shout out to Det, Sam & Pauly. Hope we all have a good night....PPQP

    Mae all -

    Good to hear how all are doing. I am sitting here, looking out the window and contemplating the full moon... just gorgeous. It seemed to rise up extra-slowly tonight, very regal, taking its time.
    Mick, whew, thanks for the news of a better Jeeves, I love the “tummy-rub” positioning.
    Thanks for your fabulous poems, you are so talented. And the jokes are fabulous, thx!
    Lav, Boys and their Toys, right? Well, hopefully you’ll receive a beautiful step-stool for Thanksgiving! I guess Luna is determined to be an outdoor cat - at least she’s fixed... Good job!!
    PPQ, my gosh you’re weather! Yikes!! Waaay to early for that cold, so sorry! Good job enjoying yourself at the event.
    SLO, you sound content, I hope you got that nap in... take care!
    Wishing all well,
    TG

    Re: 6 Nov

    Good evening friends,


    Getting colder here now just as they said it would.
    The zoo residents are all fine, wherever they happen to be haha. My daughter had a change in plans so there was no visit from them today. We will catch up soon enough I’m sure.
    The day off for the kids had something to do with today being election day & a lot of schools are voting places in our communities.
    We won’t know results for a day or two or three depending on how fast they count the growing number of mail-in ballots. I’m not the only one who doesn’t appreciate being assaulted by politicians at the polls Lol. There’s so much BS leading up to these midterm elections, it’s just crazy.

    PQ, wow winter has arrived for you, sorry!
    I saw pics on FB of the snow in BC today as well. We are being threatened with another tropical storm/hurricane arriving this Friday & Saturday.
    That’s a shame about the concessions for the craft fair. Ronald McDonald house is big down here too. I guess the Amish Uber biz is going to continue although he told me a mere month ago he was going to cut down. I don’t get the way their brains work haha!

    Cyn, Luna has everything she needs to survive outside but I still hope she would come inside if it gets real bad. She’s not spayed yet - appointment is on the 29th & we think we trapped the male cat responsible for all these kittens & moved him a few miles away. I’ve realized climbing into that truck is one thing but you really basically have to ‘fall’ out & your feet smack hard on the ground - not good for someone with bones like mine . I will try to avoid rides in that oversized thing.

    Mick, it was your turn to lose a post I guess, sorry.
    YB said the new truck pulled the trailer with ease this morning so he’s happy Lol. Hope yuo didn’t get too much rain today.

    Hello Pauly, Det & Sam.

    Have a nice night all!
