First topic message reminder :

Hi Malc great to see you popping in......can't blaine you about the ManCave though  Smile  Matt, my SIL has a ManCave .....Susan thinks it's great as well when the girls pop round the *boys* go up stairs to the ManCave (one of the spare bedrooms)  so everyone's happy Smile

How's Gil this morning Carole?

Well cancelled my *Sunday* appointment.....she couldn't understand how I'd got two appointments one for the Saturday & one for the Sunday  confused2   "A case of SOMEONE not looking at my case file" I nearly said.   Anyway it's just the Saturday now.   & legs crossed.

Ok back later......wonder if Bond's made a     oh talking about ManCave that's what Bond needs or was it his shed he'd made into his "get away Cave"

Oh look it's the Orange Seller.   one of my other figurines

And you can get your pile to lift using an iced cube Bond.....but the carpet sprung up when we changed the sofa's, I didn't think they would seeing how heavy the other sofa's were.... but just where the carpet is in front of the sofa's where the many feet have been for 34 years Bond the pile is just flattened down *slightly*  and David said seeing we've had new sofa's & we're going to get new curtains we might as well go the whole hog     so it's new carpet.....Jodie (who owns the shop with her husband) has been really good, and the other guys who work in there....nothing was too much trouble, and she was brilliant today    

"Maple" is the colour of the carpet Carole  it's a sort of warm brownish with flecks

Went to Palmers afterwards PALMERS SIR GRAHAM.....had yummy BLT...warm bacon and salad and then a large thick custard slice, walked around Palmers afterwards and saw these flapper figurines....it was "Ohhhh now should I?"  I didn't but I left this lady and her husband trying to decide which one to buy her sister who was coming up to 80....she had said "They're expensive"  to her husband when he pointed them out  ....me butting in...."Oh they're only twenty two pounds"    "REALLY?"  she said "Wow" she then told me all about her sister, as I said I left her trying to make her mind up which one to get..... I heard her say "I could get one for me as well"      Then went and did the food shopping. shopper

Bond stop waving that biscuit under my nose.....I'm full up.....in fact I'm never going to eat again.

Well the doctor is calling telephone me .....next TUESDAY   confused2  well it's not urgent but it's a long time for a doctor to pick a phone up and say "You're fine"  

You know you have a point there Carole with Sylvia.....ok ok she's got/had a pain but I think she has made herself worse....she's saying she's not eating, she said she had only had a bowl of cornflakes and a slice of toast Monday and again so far that's all she'd had to eat that day ....but she's a diabetic    Shocked     BUT last Saturday her & Cliff had gone to the pub we go to on a Wednesday, they went to meet up with Tony    because he'd got her cigarettes from their holiday in France and she was there from ten past twelve until half past two and they only left because they had got fedup of Tony talking about Wines not she was in pain.   I think she forgets what she's saying.....mouth runs away with her.    

Ok chosen the carpet...... cheers ....Maple which is a warm rich brownish  BROWNISH Carole colour.  

Oh going food shopping as well...... shopper

Ahh so no "knees up mother brown"
this morning Bond ...
Hello Vicky ,ummm so they have no idea
about Sylvia @ the way she "is" I hope she is
not making herself ill as I know some people
can

Heard from Wendy ,she said Henry was good left him 2 hrs
he was very excited when they got home so I told her
I hoped they showed him a lot of praise ,she said she does
what I used to do with Saba ,leaving the radio on low
Guess Derek has to keep this pump on for two weeks
I told her how after they took out my drainage tubes
when I had my Mastectomy and fluid built up in my left breast cavity
the Dr had to insert a long needle with a syringe into the cavity
and could not believe the amount of cc's he was getting ,I remember
I had to go back about 4 times before he started surgery hours
until it stopped ,he said that sometimes happened confused2

Also not good news from my friend Pat in OZ today her husband
Mick has to have surgery Monday for Bowel cancer they have found
they are hopeful it can be removed if high up and reattached other
wise if its lower down he will have to have a stomie?  for so long
but that the Dr's were very hopeful
They have been wondering why he was getting such pain thinking it
was Diverticulitis.....

Always something right?

Well I must away and do what I have to before going to get one of my pills
from the Pharmacy ,would be nice if they ALL ran out at the SAME time
@
Weather wise  here comes the warm streak they are saying we COULD reach
70' confused2

OK so I shall return waiting on your report Vicky

Morning......wet & grey here.

Oh "What Ever Happened To The Likely Lads" was so good, have you watched "Not Going Out" Bond.....now that's funny.


They say Sylvia's X-Ray is fine but she's still in pain....and looked it when I popped to see her yesterday, she's speaking to a doctor on the telephone on Thursday. So hopefully he'll come up with something. confused2

Well I've got to phone the doctors surgery..... run run run

Hi all, just watching what ever happened to the likely lads, it must be the time for old comedy, it was on yesterday channel so it's expected
I have had a hard day so no painting tonight just sit and relaxed with the TV
Yes a long time where did the time go I'm glad for my diary but I stopped in the early 70s and restarted in the mid 80s so a bit of a gap
Last drinks of the night

Storm Doris ? is that from what we have HAD that
brought all the wind and snow up above us ?

I agree sounds like your OK ....

As to Gil NAH! he is not worried about any meeting
as if he gets the OK ,all it will mean is he gets the Dr
to come HERE instead of taking him to the office so no
reason for him to get worried ,as to not feeling well
umm that is ANOTHER matter

Well better go take my shower before my son gets
here ,although yesterday he got stuck on the Merritt Parkway
for an HOUR as there was a bad accident ,normally its a 15 to 20min
:driver:  he did not get here until 515pm when he is normally
here at 425pm

Wonder how Derek got on have not heard from Wendy today
as she said she was going WITH Derek and leaving Henry at
home as he was getting used to being left for short periods
Bond tea please ....


So did Sylvia ever find out WHAT SHE has ?

Vicky check your email

Maybe that's what's the matter with Gil Carole....he's worried about this forthcoming meeting .....also he's not 100% confused2

The UK's going to be battered by storm Doris.

We didn't speak to Rob Carole David sent him a text & Rob sent a text back .... talktohand he's a pain, though I'll tell him when I get to speak to him.

David & I will have been married 50 years this summer.

talktohand Oh I'm not worried about the letter from the Surgery, it says "Non-Urgent" or seeing the Consultant at the hospital on the 17th of Mrach....I got THAT letter weeks ago so it must be ok or I would be at the hospital sooner. I'll telephone tomorrow and see what the surgery doctor says.

Oh popped in to see Sylvia today.....bought her some flowers to cheer her up.

Heard Margaret's Head Gnome was playing Hop Scotch earlier on with that little junior gnome for Dimes.

Well as fast as Gil went into a "FUNK"
he came out of it .....
Our GP who has to deem Gil as "House Bound"
has agreed its a good idea so he can get into this
Geriatric Home visit program as he  me last night
that it was OK and his nurse Lisa telephone  this
morning to also tell me Doc had said OK
So called the Bridgeport Hospital and the young man
took some info and said someone would call me with in a week
all to determine if he is eligible....so getting there as far as that
is concerned which will be one less worry I have trying to
get him to Dr's appointments or when he needs a Dr...

Marge I always love your postings so interesting ...
Poor Barry as I mentioned I was thinking how he was doing

Looking at the weather maps today for the West Coast   ,once
more it looked like San Fransisco was RIGHT in the MIDDLE
of the bad weather so I am glad David is not living there still

Wow Vicky hope you gave Rob what for .....

So doing the garage Bond I see ,and 45 years coming up...

Boggles my mind when I think of how LONG Gil and I WOULD
have been married from the first time ,would have been 58 yrs
come November 28th ,and we have known each other 60 yrs this
September ,having started seeing him in 1957 seems like SO MANY years
gone now by the way Shocked
As it is we have been married 20 yrs AGAIN come June now where has
THAT time flown too confused2

Anyway I am getting peckish so think I shall have an early dinner


Yes the word is out about that head Gnome ,pretty sneaky
Hope Tabitha is OK Marge always a worry

Oh Vicky hopefully its good news from the hospital
Back later

Gosh Margaret yes Barry does seem to be hanging on....oh Rebecca & her Mum must be on tender hooks.

And poor little Tabbitha  

I bet the Head Gnome would cheat at Happy Families as well.....Tinker Bell was telling us all how he cheats at snakes & ladders and tiddlywinks

I'd got a letter from my surgery when we got back here I've got to telephone them about my up & gown cameras.....it says "None urgent" phone call   confused2   I've already got an appointment to see A Consultant on the 17th of March at the hospital so what this is about..... confused2

Ok back later.....

I think its just the weather stripping  Vicky.
Its old and needs replacing.
Another thing that needs to be checked is the
drainage channels at the bottom of the windshield.

The rain runs away from the grill into channels
that lead out under the car on either side and they
maybe clogged up with leaves from the trees that
our driveway sits under. I cannot vac them out while
they are wet but it is easy enough when they are dry.
If I can keep the floor fairly dry and the suitcase size
place they call a trunk I don't have to worry about rust.
The body work has been all redone so I cannot see it
leaking.
Yes. a big hello Liz, I know how busy our menfolk can keep
us when they are poorly.

My latest issue is that Tabbitha  seems to not feel well.
Its not serious yet but I can tell she is under the weather.
If she was really sick her third eye lids would be showing
and her gums would be pale and I have not seen that yet.
She does seen to have  allergy type symptoms with a slight
runny nose and you can hear the congestion when she
tries to sniff things.
She has been sleeping a lot which is their way of healing
themselves. I will wait another 24 hours and if she does not
pick up I will take to the Vets.
Its funny because the day we had the high winds she was
dashing about all over the house!

Got one chore today, must call the Termite man and schedule
an   appointment  in April.
got some more tax stuff in the mail so will soon have to call
Brian to pick it all up.
I did not tell you that Ian messaged me the other day to say that
Barry, (his FIL) vitals crashed and had to be revived but no one will
say what the reason is. Ian just says Barry is hanging in there.
It seems that Rebecca and her mother have the dreaded "bug"
so coughing and feeling miserable.
Melanie is still waiting for her scan to be scheduled but she is
staying at home because of the bad weather they have had up
where she lives. Good job she has already had "the bug" so
is hopefully immune now.
We are told to expect more light rain showers today, we are now
at least 7" over our normal rain fall for the season and we got most
of it over two days!
Remember me saying about saving the fish hatchery?
Big article in the LA Times. Maybe I can condense it and share it
here as it is astounding what they did to save the rainbow trout and
steelheads!
Well enough blabbing for one day. Seems the head Gnome is winning
all  the hands so there are rumors that he is cheating and its  getting
intense. Maybe I can persuade them to play Happy Families instead!
The Fairies are keeping a low profile making new outfits for Easter.

Yes Carole it's half term here.....though Laura didn't turn up so at 10:30 David text Rob to be told "Oops yes I was told last night she wasn't going to your place after all but I forgot to tell you" headbanger headbanger thanks for telling us Rob.

run run I'm here
just coffee please ..... confused2
Where did Bond go to plasterboard confused2

VICKY can you pour my duck is that
NO ?

Another nice day coming up ,but talking SNOW for NEXT WEEK
ABSOLUTELY

News from BIL seems he has to go back to the hospital be checked out twice
a week and when he went yesterday the incision was leaking so had to redress
it but when Derek got home he noticed it was "white" around the edges
so went back and they have put a drain and a pump in there that he will
have for two weeks ,and has to go to a walk in to have it emptied Shocked
Even after being so careful washing hands staying away from people
etc seems he has gotten a cold as well according to my sister Rolling Eyes
His immune system must be at ZERO Mad

Hope Rob {Liz's husband} is recovering ,they cannot find where
he is leaking blood {like Gil was before} so is having to have transfusions
that is why he is having the "up and down" so they can look eye eye

I see the UK is up in arms over Trump funnytvprog

Blaine went into work but Spencer text me at 5am said he was going
in late .....so far he has not gotten up so have no idea WHATS up

Be back later confused1

Great name for your  Liz Onslow.   Was he called Onslow when you got him or did you change his name?

Sorry to hear about you husband being poorly,  and please don't worry if you can't post as often as you'd like we understand.

Are you still taking your medication Carole?   Also is Gil?

They don't do they Bond.....have you watched the latest ones, the one where David Jason is the owner and he's the old guy?

[quote="Grannygreen Liz"]Well, Carole, have I managed to follow your instructions properly?

Been busybusy again today - actually managed to get out and do some gardening, obviously walked the pooch a few times and even made a half hearted attempt at cleaning my kitchen.mop

Need a cup of now and some biscuits ..........

Thanks for having me.

The pooch, Onslow, is a Jack Russell. He's a rescue and we've only had him for 18 months (he's 15 now!) - I'll get Carole to give me an idiot's guide to getting a picture of him on here.

I can't guarantee to be here every day - the husband is rather poorly, so time can be a bit tricky, but I'll try!

Thanks for the biccies!

You got here ok then Liz.       What sort of a pooch do you have?    We've got a Yorkie, not pointy ears though,  he looks like his Yorkie Dad not his human dad  funnytvprog  his Yorkie Mum had pointy ears as 4 of her pups did, only one pup (Nessie) who's our daughters and Benjie had ears like their Dad.   how old is your dog?  Benjie is 3.    Betsy had the one litter before she was done, Betsy's owner is a best friend of Susan, our daughter, Susan got Nessie as a Wedding present and we went to look at the puppies.    and so we ended up with Benjie  funnytvprog ....No he followed us to the door with his case packed...."Are you forgetting someone" he said, so we had to explain to Benjie we couldn't take him yet because we'd got to get the cage, feeding bowls etc etc.     Smile Smile

Anyway welcome aboard.....Bond Liz wants a  and some biscuits......what have we got?

talktohand  Ah but its the media who's got it in for him Margaret. Mad he's an idiot.

Sorry about Big Red leaking.....do you think you'll be able to have it fixed or will it be far too much money....at the moment anyway.

Oh love the news about the Gnomes hanging out under the lean-to playing cards
and smoking their pipes....and gossiping about those fairies as well I expect....well that Tinker Bell is a right one....bet the cats gossip about her as well.

santa  Hi Liz welcome.

Oh the far, far right gun nuts are loving him.
The Secret Service are going crazy trying to
protect him but he has his own bunch of
bodyguards around him.
The silliest thing he did at his Florida "White
House" was to have his photo taken with the
poor soldier in charge of the case with all
the top secret codes in it and it got in the press!

He also discussed top secret stuff in public in the dining
room of his resort with civilians sitting round
listening!

He wanted to use his own plane but was told in no
uncertain terms that there was an intel. center on
Air Force One that was not going anywhere!

He can talk about truth but he has not yet released
his Financial information and we know that there is
no sign that he has paid taxes for the last decade!

This country went through a period like this in the
1890s when all the Robber Barons ran everything.
They paid slave wages and made millions on the backs
of all the immigrants that had no other choice.

Mr. Trump must get over his Mafia Don complex
He thinks he rules the world when he cannot even
fill his cabinet as all the people on his list are back pedaling
as fast as they can.
So far he has an Education secretary who knows nothing
about Education, a Security head who was made to step down
after a week or so because he said something negative about
the president, He wants someone confirmed who wants to
destroy Obama care and we are awaiting the confirmation of the
person who will be in charge of Social Security!
These are all people his closest advisors picked for him.

Talk about taking a stick and stirring a Hornets nest !!
All I can say is it will pass like every other lousy
presidency, only four more years!



We have more rain today, its only drizzle but the wind has picked
up a little. There was a little more rain leaking into Big Red but I
had towels at the ready its mainly on the front passenger side
so folded old towels and put my iron on top to help wick up
the moisture. It will have to do until it stops raining.
I did start up Big Red between storms and it turned over after
the second try which means there is still a charge in the battery.
I let it run for a while and hope that when we have a dry day I
can drive it around for a while.

Must away to see what the fairies have been doing, at least they
won't go out in the rain as their wings are not waterproof.
The Gnomes are hanging out under the lean-to playing cards
and smoking their pipes. TTFN

*Hands on hips*  taps foot.....I'll have you know Bond I'm a lot potty Smile

Ever so many people suffer from IBS Carole.....that''s why I can't eat so many foods  Specially strawberries..... talktohand  oh dare not eat one single strawberry Sad   haven't had a strawberry for around 3 years....chocolate is a no no, and cheese.   Bev's the same though she can eat cheese  our friend Margaret is the same though she can eat strawberries but not cheese and not tomatoes or nuts.....I can eat tomatoes & nuts.    We're all different.  

Funnily enough Carole Benjie's not even tried to go upstairs today and he knows he can...he's been there so the mystery is no more. dogwalk   "My cage is more exciting"  he said.

We kept one book.....took the others back (3 books)  and came back with 3 more books.   I'm losing the will to live  

Oh please Bond to the cuppa.

Morning from Bridgeport CT
Not such a good night for me , talktohand
nothing I ate Vicky once in a while I seem
to have an attack of  IBS   pop up ,GP gave me
a sample of IBGuard pills that relieves
it ,when I was there one time and we were talking
about it and I had one left and its moving out now
so going to buy a pack to keep here as they do seem to work

Gil's only problem during the night kept fidgeting
and saying he was FALLING out of bed,he does not lay up
high enough to the headboard ,the security bar prevents
him FALLING OFF but his LEGS or leg hangs off the bottom
headbanger

So we cleaned the carpet for nought I see ,as I said let us
know WHEN you decide   ,yes grey would look nice

I saw Trump giving out his "FAKE NEWS" about Sweden
STUPID STUPID man apparently said it was about something
HE saw on the TV that he was making the remark on...

Loved it when the Swedish President tweeted "do not know what
he is talking about ,whats he SMOKING"    

Ok weather is cooler than yesterday when Bridgeport broke another
record of 63f ,today we will be very  sunny  but about 25 to 30degrees
cooler ...TILL Thursday when they are calling for a chance of hitting 70f
now THAT is CRAZY in February in Connecticut

Alright Gil is up and so I should away and get dressed

Ummm why is that Bobby holding Bond by his ear  mrbond  funnytvprog

Hows Benjie enjoying the 2nd floor today Vicky  

Marge heads up on the next weather round girl

Morning from Nuneaton......

Yes I second that about Carole.

Some of the pots looked like the sort I'd do funnytvprog

with strawberry jam please Bond &  of course.

Yes then they'll go back and check the records to see if you're clean....no arrests etc.  Yep Rob went through it all.

Well the carpet looks good in most places, though in places (in front of the sofas)  the pile has flattened, because of old age & wear, so it's a new carpet.....got it down to TWO colours, one David pulled out, and now David's saying "Don't we want beige or brown?"   they're both grey....one very pale grey and the other a darker grey.....I said talktohand  "Look let's keep the carpet and just get the curtains"  and he said "You give up too easily" headbanger

Later.

Pity Sir Graham isn't on here I'd have loved to know what he thought of the "Sweden" comment......oh yes and didn't he say something about not using "Air force One" as a prop....ohhh and there it was in the background.   Tut Tut  nono  Donald Trump.

I know and he lay at the bottom of the bed (Benjie not Trump) on the throw and with head on paws watched the TV ....that's it now, but it'll be still in his cage when we go to bed ....no upstairs then. or upstairs when we're down here.   So we still have rules.  Smile

We haven't got a fan  Carole..

As for Shelia well she had been their friend for a long time Carole I did warn you not to ask questions about Graham no matter how friendly you & her had become, I told you it would be reported back and Shelia most likely felt awkward with her being such good friends with Graham & Hilary.   Some people don't like questions being asked about them, some people couldn't care less but others are funny about it.   confused2

That's how I do my fish Carole.....in foil, nob of butter, in the oven.  

BTW what did you eat yesterday to make you waitingloo

Well Bond Benjie doesn't want to watch that programme you kept changing to, Smile    He's watching a programme about "Potters"  he's going to make pots for everyone at Christmas.       It's another  "Each week one is sent home"  

Ok speak tomorrow.......hope you're feeling better tomorrow Carole.

Now you know how WE FEEL with the IDIOT
Vicky headbanger although looking at the
crowd in Florida not everyone thinks he is doing
a bad job
I know Tracie was SO shocked that he took Florida
as its been a Democratic State for so long ..

So you did the carpet ,don't you have your fan fan
going on it ?

That will be it Benjie will wonder why its upstairs
now and not later nono funnytvprog


Well do not know what was wrong with me earlier
but I had been to the loo around 5 times since I got up
and then came over SO sick to my stomach ,felt sure I
was going to "up chuck" but went to lay down and its
passed off ....
Anyway did not telephone Liz and she did not respond
to my message on FB so could be busy anyway confused2
I took pictures and sent her of each step from when we
log in so hope she can look at them and be able to leave
a message
Guess we wait and see

Looks like Graham also got to Shelia as we USED to play a word
game ,I did thank her for staying my FB friend ,but she never answered
and NEVER played the game again ,so it was BYE BYE to her
How could he DO THAT I would like to know confused2
Seems one never REALLY knows a person @

Marge you are doing great woman ,hows Barry these days ?

Well I brought back some fresh white haddock for Gil and I
and just made it with a nob of butter in some foil in the oven
and had two slices of B & B .....

Gave Gil a shower when I got back from the store so I
am now doing a load of washingbasket that I FORGOT I
needed to do today ,then I can shower and rest up

Speak tomorrow folks must say its gorgeous outside 63f
can you BELIEVE THAT at 430pm

I'm getting fedup of our TV they're having to cancel, well they don't need to just DO, programmes I watch late at night.....we're going "Where's it gone?" and then TRUMP comes on  get lost Trump I don't care what you're saying BRING MY PROGRAMME BACK.

BTW Trump talked about various places around the world who had had a influx of refugees and talked about all the trouble there's been ....he mentioned Sweden saying "Look what happened last night" nothing had happened on the Friday night. confused2

Yes Rob had to have a Police Check because he's coaching young kids.

Well we went to Fosse Park .....had nibbles  and then  we came home of course the carpet wasn't dry enough to hoover ....so we went upstairs and sat in the bedroom watching TV .....Benjie thought it was great kept from going upstairs for 3 years and now it's  "Let's go upstairs Benjie"     he'll be asking for a TV in his cage next.  funnytvprog


I see that Jennifer got let off again Bond because the Arty lot thought her painting was "Vunderbar"    It was rubbish,,,,,what are they looking at?   Throw some paint around and "Oh yes it's like a moving boat"    

Ok back later.......

Hi Marg, yes I remembered my password or picked the right one
One thing we have to do is have a police check for the Leading Players after working with young people, at college, scouts marching bands and it's costing me £12:50 the police check is free it's the admin that costs
But ha ho if you want to do it you have to follow the rules, they say a police check has never caught a pedophile

Bond, I wondered why your photo popped up on FB.
I didn't put it together until much later.

I was exhausted after the storm passed over, its always
a worry when the wind and rain are that furious so didn't
rest at all. I slept in and thought I had missed the Man U
game but Fox was showing the car racing instead so
went on a 200 channel hunt to find it.
It was on a Spanish speaking channel so got to see the
second half anyway.

I have been looking for my pruners and small saw but
cannot find them and what I could find was so rusty and
dull they could not be used so its off to the Hardware shop
to buy new ones today. The small branches will be easy to
cut up and put in the garden waste bin.
At least I have a good pair of garden gloves.
I also need a new pair of wellingtons (I tried to put the
slang we use but my auto correct kept changing it to willies!)


There are still a few dark clouds floating around but the sunny
is poking through and no wind to speak of.

I swear I am going to put my name inside every jacket I wear
so next time some light fingered person will think twice before
lifting it.
The retreat must have lost items before (you know we lost
$75 worth of books from our meeting room after a group like
this held a special event at the retreat) but they certainly
noticed when I said I would file a police complaint!

I also suggested they post signs like at the airport about not
leaving things unattended in the meeting rooms. Bet that went
down like a lead balloon with the Nuns!
I am sorry but I don't believe in turning the other cheek.
A thief is a thief!

A wise decision Vicky, it might solve your dilemma about
the carpet, at least it is worth trying.

Got a call from Peter's brother Vincent this morning, seems
he has had the bug for two weeks already but is taking
care of himself. He has a new NHS Dr. and he says she
is so much better than the one he had for two years who
now seems to have got the sack!
He already has had a change in medication and says he
feels much better.
I guess I am having brunch today as have to have something to eat
before I can take my pills. Its already past 11am here!
Might have a cheese omelet. TTFN

Good afternoon all, been a little ride out, first to the tip shop! I don't know if you have them Carole, recycling shops at the tips so if there is some think you don't want but too good for the tip, so the micro wave kettle and toaster will find a good home, when we got there a man was loading up a 30s oak dresser/side board after dropping off a 80s one? Seems they are doing up a room war years style?
After that we went to Middleton Hall just for a walk around the RSPB wet land and bird sanctuary the but they had a wedding fair on and the car parks were full so another time mid week so we went to Planters for a look around, then pub grub by the canal
Good idea about the carpet as the one you have done t give you carpet burns
Tea and

Liz will wonder WHO or WHAT we are on about lol
I will explain if I chat to her as best I can

Well I got a sleep in till almost 7am as I fed Buddy at 330am

at my bedroom door ,and he was a GOOD boy and was STILL sleeping
in his bed when I opened the door ,so just let him out now

Going to be a beautiful day in the 50's seems like Spring
and they are saying now we could see a 60 on Thursday
these are MY temps I LOVE SPRING

Well must push on as I have to shopper and told Liz I would
talk to her when I get home to walk her through the chat site

Trump is making me ILL listening to his BS ,says he wants to
be among his "people" when in Florida where his "2nd white house"
according to HIM is located ,more like he needs the BOOST
his supporters give his ego ,and I saw there were still MANY ahhhhhhhhhh
