Gosh I  enough tripe without my PC taking over and adding bits  funnytvprog  

Still coolish here......though as I say that (ooh I'm sounding like Winston Churchill)  as I say that the sun is fighting to get out.

I must have enjoyed myself last night be it with Bond  affraid   or Margaret  affraid  I'm flaked out this morning. tired   when's bed time?  

Maybe I've gone home Bond?  

Well David's gone off with  and I do not know what's going on this afternoon.

I've discovered the company who collect the money take 5% for doing it.....they're really big now (well they would be) and ANY disaster people turn to them to set up a collection, they must be raking in lots due to peoples misery and I don't like that,  I'd rather give straight to the Charity to be used or some *honest* person who's collecting the money to give straight over to those who need it.   soapbox    

Oh well David will be here soon so I'll see how I'm going to climb down from this soapbox.

Avatar is more of the stream in the hotel.....lounge/bar

Sorry to be AWOL but is not my fault. It seems that Spectrum(who took over from
Time-Warner) notified us that on Monday the 26th they will start a series of tweeks
in their service, it will be at night though and should be working during the day.

Only problem was that my internet connection went down early this morning and
has been off all day. The TV worked and I think the phones did it was just the computer
and the iPads that would not work, Its only just come back on after I unplugged the power cable
and plugged it back in again.

Lorna and I did our Friday night wine and cheese on her patio bit again but we did get carried away.
We drank two bottles of wine, usually we only drink one ,
We were celebrating that Lorna is now off duty for the summer and I am getting Big Red back.
I shared with her about my turn as a Research assistant. We also did our civic duty reporting a
bicycle that had been chained to a post for nearly two weeks down the street, we think it was stolen
and got a flat tire.
I was a bit hung over this morning drunken
I am feeling fine right now
No really I am, I am going down to the store in a little while to get more cat food.
Started to read The Great Escape again, not read it in years. Only a few years earlier
there was The Wooden Horse escape from the same camp. There had been other tunnels
built too but the soft sand kept caving in the tunnels, luckily they never lost anyone
that way.
Its been a nice day here and just a little warmer.
Vicky I am glad you asked, you might have regretted it later if you hadn't.
Sarah and her Dad , Ken have my mothers distinctive butterfly shaped rimless glasses and
her wedding band, I got nothing but the photos.
Melanie wanted Peters computer glasses with duct tape across the bridge , she said "Its SO
Dad!", Of course I gave them her, She Did ask for Peters carved walking stick from NZ but
I am not quite ready to let that go yet. Ian will probably be here again later in the year so
he can decide then if he wants anything.
The fuzzy faces are getting restless, I have to go. TTFN

Yes Yes I KNEW you said the 6th but then you
said she was not being buried where she wanted
to be ?
Tony the boozing buddy from Wednesdays is going?

Yes Vicky the Dr knows about Gil its all part of what he has,
his motor skills will slowly get worse as things slow down ..

As to giving me any advise about HOW to get him up  
other than telephone  911 if the boys are not home confused2
I cannot lift him have tried and hurt my back so no more
Just have to make sure he does NOT go down if I can
but hard when Mr Bourne does things he is not supposed to do
thinking he can STILL do said things headbanger

After mowing the back lawn I am now in need of a quick easychair

Oh and as to what Bond posted I saw that after ...just depends
how you READ it with NO comers....
Back later after I zzzzzz



Where is Marge still snoozing ,must be all that investigation work   tired

Oh I've started reading "The Phantom Tree" set between the present day and Henry the Eights time.

Does the Doctor know about Gil not being able to get up and has he any advice to how he could help himself and you to get up?   If he's resisting Carole then you have to leave him, you'll do your back in and then what?

 Hi Choccy Penguin,  "Taps foot with hands on hips"  nono  you forget us.   "Sharp intake of breath with shake of head"  how could you  

No I didn't know about Jodie, I'll have to tell Steve (Chyna)  also,  that's lovely news though.....thank you for letting me know.    Awww a Mummy, tell her when you or someone gets to speak to her "Congrats from Vicky"   Awww that is really so sweet, I'm chuffed.    

It did brighten up Carole but certainly nothing like it's been.

No Carole Bond is still in Portugal.......hiding under his sunlounge for eye  up this man's wife though.

Can Gil not roll over onto his knees and helping himself & you to get him up by using the sofa?

Fancy a biscuit......a biscuit anyone?

Sorry keep forgetting to post here. Now what am I doing now?....Oh yes afternoon all.

Mr Bond: Try not to smuggle back Portugal's most famous product connected with alcohol because it is hard to hide corks.

Might be off to Spain next month just waiting on Sisu to confirm the package for the pre-season tour eek headball

Vicky: I don't know if you know but Jodie Turner (nee Fry) gave birth to a baby boy last week called Ezra bondchamps both are doing fine.

Hi all, Marge it was you talking about bomber command that made me thick of hi I was getting looks on the Germans may be it was the Royal Air Force roundel on the front of my t-shirt and my Malta sun hat with the Maltese cross on the front eye
Yes your hair is a bit longer over here and you had it it a top knot on the top of your head so when you got out of the pool all wet and glistening you undid the clip and stuck your hair out now your string bikini is more string than bikini that's when the sun man went bum over elbows
I remember those outcrops up rock coming out of the beach
Right drinks and then back to the pool

Have not heard from Tracie since she went back so shot off a text ,but she
has been flying and so OK in fact was just going to be taking off when I text

Gil fell OFF THE SOFA  last night just before Spencer was due home
He had been laying down as he still is not 100% happy with this chair headbanger
and instead of asking me to help him up he rolled and all I heard was a BANG
which was again his HEAD on the hardwood floor {next door neighbor said SHE heard
it } which shows you how hard he fell or how THIN these wall are
Anyway I got him into a sitting position but told him he would have to wait
for Spencer to get him up ,which 10 mins later he did ,I still do not know when
I try to lift him up under his arm pits its like he weighs a TON WEIGHT and is PUSHING
DOWN AGAINST ME LIFTING HIM UP .....
and then when the boys do it its one two three and up he comes no sweat confused2
Anyway he was OK but STILL complaining about his back....first thing out
his mouth when he wakes that he is ACHING ALL OVER  confused2

I only have a few choice words for Cliff
Vicky ......
but good on ya for asking ,keep you in mind
will he ,I hope HE keeps in MIND what HE DID to his poor
suffering wife for the last few weeks of her life on this earth
My Nan always told my Grandad Pengelly that if she died first
she would come back and HAUNT him ,Mum bought our house
on Purcell Rd after we left for    as Grandad was still
alive ,she wrote me saying that he had been    at my brother
Dean who was 10 then about SLAMMING his bedroom door,only strange
thing is Dean was no where around when this all happened whoooo  
,he lasted  a few years and died in his sleep Mum said
crunched up holding his chest so they assumed he had suffered a
♥ attack during the night ,he would always come down stairs around
8am carrying his ''piss pot" in front of him {as my Nan used to say}
when he did not come down stairs by noon Mum went looking and found him
Shortly after that she sold up and moved back to her home town of Plymouth

Anyway I am a little pooped now so will write later from my Kindle
Bond don't turn around another ARROW is on its WAYYYYYYYY BOINNGGGGG
 HEADS UP

Well I've asked for a "keepsake"  felt awkward doing it, felt even worse when Cliff said "Do you really need something to remember Sylvia?"   I said "Of course not but it would be nice to have little thing....nothing expensive, just something....you know"    he then said "Well Lena will be having the pick of what she wants, is there something you'd like?" I said I couldn't think of anything......I was thinking "One of her fluffy toys"  but because of his tone of voice I couldn't say.  He then said in a dismissive way "I'll keep you in mind"  

That's great news Margaret about Big Red.  

  Bond won't be sitting down for a while Carole.Smile

Well, its back to being a research assistant today.
I only have the list of names and addresses written
in the back of the log book left unless Bob comes up
with another inquiry.
Not all the POW officers came from Bomber Command
I think Bob has the list of all of the POWs.
He says with just the list I gave him yesterday it kept
him typing all day!
This list will keep him unlit next week!

I have yet to explain why his crew called him Pops.
It was because he was the eldest member of the crew,
--- 28 years old affraid
The youngest was 19 years old and he was the mid upper gunner
It was his firing on a German night fighter that got them shot down
after Pops kept telling them to hold their fire and it got him killed.
They were almost over the Dutch border on the way home from a
raid. The rest of the crew went to other interment camps but all
made it back alive.
Someone asked me if the film was true and I had to tell them that
if you took out Steve McQueen, it was all true.

Weather is foggy again this morning and on the cool side (for us)
again. Hoping to get some word from Dave my mechanic today
at least for an update. He is leaving on vacation on the 29th so
its become a point of pride for him to get Big Red back to me
even if its the day before he leaves!
Right now I am not taking bets. If I get it ,I get it. confused2
Its in my higher powers hands like everything else round here.
I just keep plodding along doing the footwork I need to do.

Dave must be on the same wave length, he just called to tell me
that the part is in and BR should be ready for pick up next Tuesday.

NOW I am EXCITED!!!!!

The cats have been on a tear this morning, crashing about the house.
I think they are asleep right now until about 1:30pm then its lunch time
for them.
I am going to get a bite to eat and take my pills and get started on the list
of names. BOB, can you hear me?

Vicky, ask for a keepsake . you will regret it if you don't because this is
maybe your one and only chance. You have been a good friend to Sylvia.
Since when have you backed down from speaking your mind?
It won't affect anyone else at this stage, go for it girl!

TTFN

I don't have nets Carole......I've never bought nets they're not the sort of thing I've ever bought. confused2 I think they've gone out of fashion, in the 60/70's people would have them but these days not so much.

Ha was that Bond I heard yelp.....hee! hee! hee! good shot Carole.

Well how different from a couple of days ago.......it's cold out there, well I suppose when it's been in the 90f' 67f is cold. confused2

Oh thank you Carole for the lovely Sympathy card, I got it this afternoon.  THANK YOU.

Went to the hairdresers.....  love it.   Though I do feel horrid to AJ not having her now.

Oh I remember being told about the harbour Bond.....we never went there though.    private beach, great poolside and 5 star hotel had us staying put    They had a lift in the rocks going down to the private beach....the hotel had a sort of  stream weaving through with fishes in and a wooden bridge going across.  talktohand  wouldn't get away with it over here...."Must have rails along the full length"   but I loved the place & the hotel....couldn't afford to stay more than a week.      

No guys I just couldn't ask for anything, if he can't think of it I just couldn't ask or even drop hints, I've got memories, lots of memories, specially knowing she said "Bye" the last time I saw her. also funny memories .       I've still got the lovely pearl necklace you sent to me belonging to Ruth.  

My Gran had lots of photos of her family during the war....her step brother was a Desert Rat....she had medals, caps....an envelope with desert sand in it which had never been opened of course and when she died the whole lot went, the following day.....it upset me to imagine someone tearing open the envelope to find out what was in it and the sand scattering around.  Mad      

Any  around.

New avatar is the Alvor private beach, it wasn't just that bit either, it was a great stretch of the beach.  Brilliant, loved it.

Of COURSE you should ASK for a memento
Vicky and he SHOULD give you one if he has
any conscience at ALL with you being so close
to her ,funnily enough while I was helping
Ruth clean the few weeks before she died she
gave me a couple of her china pieces as we both loved
English or any good china I have tea cups and saucers
and she gave me a spoon rest/small jug and another two pieces  
that I shall treasure as long as I shall live knowing they
came from her ,
Ruth had some really good jewelry but I am not a jewelry person
as she well knew so even  when Doug offered something
after she passed  I talktohand  letting her daughters have it all

Marge I hope Bob Gold includes you or maybe even  pete in
a mention for contributing and as Bond mentioned its a piece
of history that ALL should be aware of as this generation is fast
forgetting  nono

Ok its going to be HOT and MUGGY today so IF I can BLOW HARD ENOUGH
Vicky you may STILL need that  fan  
Wendy says she Derek and Henry  dogwalk especially  enjoy laying in front of theirs  fan    

Well today I HAVE to go to the Pharmacy as the new Dr DID change Gil's
meds to 90day supply which will not only save us $$ but having to run to get his pills
every 30 days as they had it ,mine as were Gil's before were ALL 90days  so
this has been a pain  ....due for a thunder storm they are saying around noon time
so hoping to get there early and back ,plus Blaine's bed will be here sometime
between 230pm and 630pm
Have also to get some more Ant spray as Spencer said he has them down stairs
and if there are TWO things I HATE its ANTS AND FLIES

So better get my act in gear and I shall return    run  run  run

Sorry about your top, if you take it off ill sponge it
Marge that is a holy grail a piece of history
My dad had photos from the war years he was in North Africa and Italy, some photos in Venice and when I was there I took a photo from the same place as he did in the square it gave me a funny feeling
We went to Alvor many years ago I remember the cooking the fish in the street by the harbour,, the smell and the blue smoke
Coffee tea and L&LS on the balcony
Back later

Maybe I could ask for one of Sylvia's soft toys (the one that's got the millions sewn in) funnytvprog

To be honest Margaret I wouldn't mind something (nothing expensive of course) but I couldn't ask.

Yes the money is going to the Air Ambulance.....and Sylvia would approve, I'm sure she would. Before I was told where HE would like the money to go to I'd got David to add in his first text message that I was going to donate the kitty to the Air Ambulance so it won't come as a surprise to Cliff, he might be shocked that I'm standing my ground and not following what HE wants.

Ok tomorrow guys..

You know I think Bev does think she should have *something*     confused2    Yes Lena gets everything, apart from the house which is in joint names, Craig, her son, gets nothing & I hope (but won't hold my breath) but I hope Cliff sees that Craig does get something. or Lena herself sees that her Dad gets something.  It took Lena 4 weeks to even send Sylvia a card.

It is a rip off Carole, .....why Cliff's put the donations into these scumbags hands heaven only knows.  You should get ALL the money going to the Charity

They're saying our summer is over for a while.   confused2 ......fan  Carole?  What fan?  Oh you mean Bond......yes he is a love.      :    Head for the hills Carole's on the war path ....Oops.....she's good with that bow and arrow.....good job she was only given the one arrow, can you imagine if she had two  affraid   run run run

it does not hurt to ask for something to remember her by, Vicky before they sell off the lot.
(if they haven't done it already).

My Japanese neighbor across the street, her husband dropped dead of a heart attack and
even before he was in the ground she had all his things out on the street!
I don't know if it had anything to do with her religion but it sure shocked the street!
(we were gone on vacation so found out all about when we got back).

Donate the money where you want to and send a card telling them that's what you have done.
That's done a lot over here, We asked that people donate to the Multiple Sclerosis Society or
their favorite charity.
I have been either searching or typing all day today, passing on information to Bob Good in
Australia. (Might even get a credit in the book but not holding my breath).
I am glad that Pops didn't throw away everything, I cannot imagine what he went though
those two and a half years. As much as he distained me I was so proud of him. To think
that Bomber Command crews never got a medal, or even a POW one.

Did Bev REALLY expect something from Sylvia's will
if ANYONE should have had a memento it should be YOU
and Lena gets it ALL and she did not even go see her Nan
umm now I have to digest THAT bit of news ,especially the
way she was with her step Grandad   or what ever he was
called ...So assuming he got the house ?
I am assuming Sylvia did her will through a Lawyer
so the idiot would not have ripped up her will

That is still a rip off Vicky for their trouble

Well Blaine's home as he just got delivery of his mattresses
the bed comes tomorrow

Mr Bourne ate ALL his dinner  and being as its Spencer's
night to stay home I shall be soon laying horizontally

Whats your plans for tomorrow Vicky or just playing things by ear
LAST CALL FOR DRINKS as it looks like Bonds dozed off in the A/C easychair

No no no Carole the funeral directors don't take a % cut "Just Giving" who collects the money to hand over to the Charity take a cut "For their trouble" Mad their trouble I ask you. Of course Cliff, or should I say Sylvia, has to pay to have her buried and money also to the Church for the service etc.

Just had Bev on the telephone "She's not being buried next to her Dad" I said I didn't think she was with the text message he'd sent to David, it had just mentioned the Church in Barwell nothing about moving on to..... "Well I'm disgusted, and I bet he's torn her Will up so we won't know what's in it" I did, do, because Sylvia told me.....Lena got everything, money in the Bank and her jewellery, I was waiting for Bev to play the "Cousin card" Bev has said to me about Evette "All that money Keith left her and she can't give me five hundred pounds" Evette is taking her to Blackpool for a week in July but "That's not the point" she's a card is Bev..

I hit the Holy Grail this morning!
It was hiding under Peters desk behind a small rollaway two drawer filing cabinet.
It made very interesting reading. It seems that every POW was given a log book
to record what ever he wanted in it. Most put names and addresses in the back
pages. Pops was divided by two subjects, his time in the camp and the long forced
marches the POWs made to take them deeper in to Germany away from the advancing
Russian army. The German guards finally realized that the allied front was closing in
and left them to fend for themselves. They finally made it to the allied front and made it
home.

Sad That made me tear up Marge as I know
its wearing on me ,so I have been taking cat naps
in the afternoon if only for 15 mins of closing my eyes
and Gil just said when I woke up that I have been SLEEPING
a lot lately headbanger
I really do not think he knows or sees that being like HE IS
that I KNOW he cannot help is also getting to ME its not like
I have a home help {could not afford one anyway} so its ALL me
I know he would never be in his lounge pants like this he was ALWAYS
a smart dresser .....
That is why I enjoy my 30mins in the garden Marge mowing the grass
it brings me PEACE always has though really even at the other house
when I got laid off and lost my Mum in the same year my garden was
where I found peace of mind amongst my so no its not
silly ...

When Bond has finished sucking that chocolate OFF Vicky I should
point out that IF I asked or said anything about him going to Spain
HE NEVER CORRECTED ME confused2

Beef pot pies with white rice and spring baby peas tonight the humidity
is BACK in FULL FORCE this afternoon 83 right now
SO I will go sit in the naughty corner

Well said Margaret about Gil.   Carole that's good advice.....just remember he's trying, ok he drops the towel in the water but he's doing his best, and he suddenly wants to wear a shirt and jeans and not the usual garb something is saying to him "I want to look smart"  he wants to be the Gilly you knew.   Take time out....often, when ever you can.

Been looking at the funeral directors who's collecting for Sylvia.....the website you go onto takes a % of your donation.....I'm not happy about that.  So sorry the kitty is ALL going to Air Ambulance.  £44-76 pence.   I'm going to have to change the notes into coins though, to put paper money into the collection tin I'm not too sure the money will tear when coins drop onto it.

Just watching that "The Full Monty" programme  Bond  "You can leave your hat on"

The heat is off this morning but it wasn't bad locally yesterday,
we didn't even reach 80f!

I like searching records (think ancestry) I just hope that the box
with the originals is under Peters desk.
I have been working my way round the room (think 10x10) from
one point so as not to miss anything.
I found a sheet with about five questions on it, the last question
was about the Berlin Air Lift. Pops had written on the back his
account in the tiny scrawl that both he and Peter shared. I got
cross eye trying to read it! I'll bet Peter had no trouble at all!
Anyway Pops only did two trips in a DC3, the tail draggers could
not carry enough coal so planes with bigger payloads were needed.
Pops said they did get shot at once or twice even though they were
in a very narrow flight path which was neutral.
I changed my mind about going out for dinner last night, I had stuff
all over the floor in that room and I wanted to get it put away while
I remembered which envelope it came from and back in the box.

Carole, Gill is trying to do what his memory is telling him that he always
did in the past. In 2011 I had Peter in sweat pants and T-shirts, as soon
as he felt up to it he dressed himself one day and came out in a pair of
jeans and a polo shirt! Of course he was still under weight so he needed
a leather belt to keep them up which interfered with his urine bag so got him
some braces instead. that did the trick.
I am not saying that Gill needs the same , I am only saying that he may feel better
being dressed today which shows that the light is still on in there.

You, young lady need to take more timeouts to stop and rest for even 10 minutes
several times a day. Your mental health will start to suffer if you try to do everything
at the same pace you have always done it. You don't need to meditate, just slow down
your brain and breath, think of all the flowers names in your garden, repeat the words
of a song, anything to give your mind a resting place.
It sounds silly I know but it works.

They were talking about "Rockwool"   on the TV today how if the Flats had been insulated with Rockwool it wouldn't have burnt as it did,   And it wouldn't have, how a fire had broken out a couple of years ago and the fire was kept to just the one flat. I know all about that..
