PostSubject: Morning everyone..It's a new week...11/08/2014   Wed Jul 05, 2017 5:30 am

First topic message reminder :

Well, he just said sorry. I keep forgetting that he is 8 hours ahead and
has probably been messing with the Chase stuff for some time before
messaging me. Nothing to be done now until the new card actually
arrives.
I don't think I will be taking these blood pressure pills much longer
they are giving me a headache, don't know if its dehydration or something
else but I have increased my fluid intake in hopes that that is all it is.
I go back in about 10 days so will take them until then.
I am sure she will give me another blood test so we can compare the two.

I need to call the Gastroenterologists office tomorrow to make an appointment.

Finally got all the leaves out of Black Beauty vents and rain channels.

Lorna called and said that Lucy (our neighbor who is now in a retirement
hotel) wants to have a get together like we did last year. Its all last minute
as usual. Luckily I am only down for chips and dip and soft drinks and water.
I also need to get a couple of bags of ice for the ice chest.
I don't even know whose garden we will be in yet!
Now I can go and get my breakfast! I don't do well handling this kind of stuff
as soon as I wake up. TTFN

No Bond supposedly he is well known in the UK
and is a comedian
The Gong Show is where crazy people get up
and perform some ridiculous things and a panel
of celebrities decide how LONG they will let they
continue until they get GONGED
The one able to finish their "act" wins

It's this Maitland Spencer was asking about not the show

Hi Carole, is that the Gang show? A scouts yearly show from scouts around the world, I used to work on Atherstone gang show sets one year building a spitfire that came from the back of the hall on a wire but that's not the name of the top scouter that ran these shows
Marge Your right about these name changes like when they say we fought the nazis we fought the Germans we weren't the labour or conservatives we were British

Do you guys know a Tommy Maitland ?
they are redoing over here the "Gong Show"
and Spencer said some people are saying its
not this Tommy  Maitland who is being cast as the
host but  Mike Meyers in disguise confused2
Any comments Rolling Eyes

Hey  we know that Margaret sweetie,  and certainly understand the photo hitting you as it did,  and of course Carole will continue to yell and bang about waking you up per usual.  Smile    but to be serious Margaret it's early days and we know how things will hit you from time to time.  

BTW  I so agree with you about them trying to erase history.....it happened, we can't say it didn't.  

Do they do Balcony bras Bond?

I know Carole we were saying "Hope they don't get broken into tonight or it will be "Ah there was this car and they were taking photos"  affraid One photo I'm nearly in the photo taking the photos...."ME Officer no" "But that's your hand in that photo Madam" Shocked

Almost finished my book.....I still don't know what it's about.....don't know how i haven't dumped it.....he's usually good too.

Never think of you like that Marge
your a STRONG lady in all matters

I saw the picture in question ,even seeing
my first wedding photo gives me a jolt but
I will say one thing Marge you had in all your constant
years married so many GOOD and WONDERFUL memories
,where as mine and Gil's was broken
up , even from day one we had problems and moving
back in with my grandparents after having Blaine
in order to buy the house on Purcell Rd from a little house
where we were happy and ALONE was a BIG MISTAKE
just so my grandparents could stay there after Grandad retired
telling us that they would not be around THAT much longer and with
us being so young we would be the winners in the long run
but that did not turn out to be ,so in order to correct that Gil thought
that coming here would "fix" it,..... WRONG ....so in all our years
we do not have that many happy memories . like YOU have to cherish

Anyway I bought some fresh shrimp thinking of making shrimp with pasta
in a white sauce

Gil is not having a good day today ,seems really befuddled ,I just told
him one day he seems quite "normal" then the next like today he is
way out in LEFT FIELD headbanger confused2

Please don't think I was playing poor little me because I
don't expect you guys to behave any other way than the way
you normally treat me.
Its just that seeing the photo of us
on our wedding day so unexpectedly posted by Ian on FB
set me off in a way I had not expected. I was keeping myself
busy as usual and not thinking that he would do that while on
his holiday in France.
Ian has informed me that he has a Voice Over scheduled for
Sept. 12th so he is looking at flying out here on the 14th now.

Melanie still does not have a new date for her surgery yet, suppose
she will know sometime in the week ahead.
I have to pop into my Drs. office tomorrow morning to get my blood
pressure taken to see if these new meds are doing their job.
I don't feel any different but only the blood pressure cuff will be able to
tell the truth.
(I don't know how they can get a true reading when I have just spent
20 minutes driving in heavy traffic and stressed about the darn BP!)

Our school district does not go back until after Labor Day (Sept 4th) but LA
schools have already started so have the private charter schools.
I notice that more and more houses are flying the Stars and Stripes these days
not in support of the president but more a show of support for the country that
immigrants built together.

This country with its freedom of speech and assembly is allowed to have the KKK
and the White Supreme Nation have their rallies but not to infringe on anyone
else's rights and freedoms. If anyone is entitled to protest about the statues and
monuments to the leaders of the Confederate Army in the southern states its the
Africa Americans. Its like trying to erase history (just like the terrorists are doing in the
middle east). History is what actually happened good or bad. The hope is that by
acknowledging the bad we won't repeat it again.
Thousands of Americans died in the bloodiest civil war on both sides(some from the same
families) Great efforts were made afterwards to reunite both factions to go forward
and rebuild this nation. Including memorials to all the great leaders from BOTH sides.
This mess is destroying all the advances made by minorities in the last 100 years!
While the Robber Barons are getting richer by the day.
Its a good diversion for Trump to hide what else he has up his sleeve. soapbox
going away now.
Its another lovely day outside, a few clouds but they will burn off soon.
I think I will have another mug of and a quick read of some of the paper.
TTFN

"Someone is parked by our gate taking photos"   affraid    Often you come across houses you'd love to photo but pulling onto the side of the road is a no no so I was pleased we could take this photo...quickly.

Went to Palmers.....PALMERS Sir Graham.....had jacket potato, beans & salad and one of their LARGE custard slices....very yummy. Then looked around for a large stand up clock which will go with Susan & Matt's (CAROLE'S) bedroom....I bought one years ago it really looks good BUT the battery doesn't go very far so we're looking for another one....harder than you'd think, first not many clocks stand up, unless you go for the small bedside clock which we don't want....I have suggested a wall clock but David's not keen confused2

Also looked around for a birthday present for Evette.....thought about a small basket or box which can be used again and fill it with good quality shampoo & some shower gel. I did see a lovely box with lid but David said "Can't buy that it's ten pounds" confused2 SOooo!!! yes yes I know the items (shampoo & shower gel) would push the money up but so what I'm buying. I've seen a bag Bev would like but I've got the feeling Evette's got her a bag. Maybe a voucher from M&S. Anyway Bev's isn't until the end of Sept SO still time to look around.

Any going Bond.

Maybe "insensitive" was not the "right" word
just mean that we had to know that today
was going to be a hard day for Marge that is
all as she knows how much we ALL care
as we do for EVERYONE on here

Well icing my shoulder but have to take a shower
as almost time for me to ♪lay that body down boy♪
♪ lay that body down ♪
Have a good night people ,is Bond home yet or do we have
to leave a light on in the window when he comes stumbling
home bondchamps drunken

I'm sure Margaret knows we weren't being insensitive  Carole,  I did know what day it was of course but as I said I'm sure Margaret didn't think for one minute we were being insensitive, she knows us better than that. .

Oh Marge I am so sorry ,how insensitive
of us to have forgotten what today was to
your and pete ..... but your consolation
is of ALL the good memories you made with him

PLEASE get that "gas" smell checked out though as
I have seen SO many :house: of late being damaged
with a leak more than I care to mention ,and not just
because of the threat of being overcome ,the one close
to me that went up when Gil was in rehab was they are
thinking now due to a gas leak as they had just had
a gas line connected
In fact the gas company was out there yesterday digging up the
road again

Went to the store and brought back a fish sarnie for Gil from
Burger King and I had a Whopper that they have been advertising
for 2 for $6 ,cut Gil's up into 1/4's and made sure he drank his
thickened apple juice after every other bite to clear his throat

Wendy said they had a lot of rain last night Vicky but dry although
no sun today {well that is Plymouth not Devon } Derek's mother
has an infection where the dog bit her calf and she had 7 stitches
so the Dr has her on antibiotics
They cannot go down today as Wendy has a tummy bug and does
not want to take THAT down there

Back later run run

It was sea bass Carole......lovely.fish.       No David had to roll me out to the car after our meal and then out of the car and to our front door.    funnytvprog

I'm Ann Carole.....it's a long story which I'm sure I've told before, I'm called Victoria Ann....now my Gran hated Vicky so when my Mum left me with my Gran when I was 2 yrs my Gran called me Ann and she always called me Ann....when I started school I was known as Ann, Janice & I have known each other since we were toddlers and of course Janice grew up calling me Ann until I was 11 and then when my Aunt told me the story about my Gran so it was  "I'm Vicky not Ann"  and Jan called me Vicky for about 6 months but it was complicated switching from what her and school friends used to call me.....so she went back to calling me Ann, so I've grown up with some people (relatives or friends)  calling me Vicky or Ann.....or "Bickie" as my cousin Linda from Newcastle called me when she was little because she couldn't say "Vicky" ......see I've always been complicated, or more to the point my Gran getting her own way.   Mad  so Janice calls me Ann.....it's ok she knows it's me when I sign cards "Vicky"  as I often do.    confused2    Oh Linda my cousin calls me Vicky now.

Oh go for it Bond......you'll enjoy yourself.

Been talking to Susan, her & Matt & Nessie of course are in Cornwall camping....just a couple of days and then they're back home and after 2 days off to Greece.    Becky & Jamie are there also.

Cute dog Carole, fancy someone dumping the poor thing near a road.....terrible.

Ohhhh Margaret we can all understand

Now I am going to get from all sides I guess!

I was awake all night, did not fall asleep until dawn.
Ian posted one of our wedding day pictures last night
and I completely lost it crying
I told the kids they can put up what they like about their Dad
on FB. forgetting that today would have been our 56th
anniversary.

Well, called the lady at my gardeners office and found out she
was going to call me and let me know that she was selling the business
but the new people jumped the gun. She is giving them a months trial
before handing over the books so I will be still be paying her at the
end of this month. I said I would also give them a trial too and see how it
goes.

Could hear the sound of someone's sprinklers going late last night, come
to find out its mine! They turned the back garden ones on manually and forgot
to turn them off. I spent half an hour trying things and then read the manual
in with the Rain Bird controls in the garage. So turned it off at the outside
valve finally.

Might have another problem on my hands though, I smelled a tiny
smell like gas last night so going to call the Gas Company to come and check
it out. This house has gas fired furnace and water heater, cooker and log set in the
den. We also get the same smell from the run off drain across the street under the
steps to the next road so will check with Lorna as she is closer to it than me.
I do have windows open all the time so its not as if I am in any danger at the moment.
Of course it could be from the cats boxes so will clean those out again this morning.
That should give me one possible source excluded. Sometimes I cannot smell it at all
but I won't ignore it, its a free service by the Gas Company anyway.


The only thing I didn't get round to yesterday was the jewelry repair place, I just got
weary and came home so that's on the list for today.
I picked up some large envelopes and labels at Staples so ready to tackle the filing.
This time I will do it the way I want it as Ian said I could change it if I wanted to.

Yes Sea Bass is very popular out here as it is plentiful off our shores.

I am sorry to hear of your friends loss Carole, even if you think you are prepared
after having them so ill, it still is a shock to know that they are finally gone.
Just to look at Peters picture as he was on our wedding day I still get heart sick
remembering all of what we weathered together since then.
I could not have asked for a better life partner.

and your right my husband was an EXPERT on THAT when he was back
there ,one of the reasons we broke up first time around

OK have to venture out don't want to as its ♪ too darn HOT ♪

Whoops sorry Vicky you went early then

fan of fresh water  fish although Gilly is
now telling me you can get Sea Bass ...
David had to ROLL you in and out ,you been
over eating then young lady  nono  funnytvprog

Temps going up to 90f today with a REALLY high humidity
so I went out after getting Gil up and getting him situated
and mowed just the back lawn as all the rain we got yesterday
really made it sprout along with the heat ,I could feel the sweat
running down by back in rivulets  Mad  and I was only out there
15mins

Tracie  telephone  was just taking Timmy to the dog park
before the rain which always falls there as the heat builds
the storms come a good down pour and then its  sunny  and
hot AGAIN ,same temp as here today
She is back in the    tomorrow ....

Anyway better get on I really should run to the bank and with draw
the rent $$ even though this will make month #4 since our beloved
landlady has been around to collect the money orders ,we were just
saying the reason she stays away is because she knows I will be telling her
about things that need addressing  headbanger

BTW nice of your girlfriend  Vicky but WHOSE Ann  confused2

So Bond take your    and have fun ,but could you make
a LARGE jug of L & L's before you leave  

MARGE that was NOT ME YELLING earlier

Oh dear what sad news.....  so sorry Liz, as Bond's said I hope you've got lots of people around you, family and friends.

We've been out for an anniversary meal Carole......just David and I, went to the same place we went to on Sunday.   David had to roll me to the car and roll me out and to our door.    Though I had Bass, never had that before but  I'll certainly have it again, lovely meal ...the bass was on a bed of mashed potato and veg.   For pudding was had bread & butter pudding and cream.....great meal, had a pot of tea for me & a coffee.for David.  

Just before we went out the postman came ......parcel from my friend Janice, didn't open it until we got home and it's a golden cake, in small balls it says   "Ann & David 50 yrs"  lovely of her but another cake.....who's  that hand up and waving about?  santa

Enjoy the music Bond.

MORNING MARGE ......Carole keep the noise down hee hee

Morning Bond yes sad news indeed
Her oldest son is in NZ she said but
is going to try and telephone her
he is not Rob's son as she has children
by her previous husband so hopefully has
enough people around her for support
As she said she felt when she text me
a mixture of sadness relief and being scared

Well enjoy your concert as I am assuming your
taking Mrs B to hear the

Where is Miss Vicky today ,does she have the G/kids
I have awoken with a TERRIBLE pain/crick in the
back of my right shoulder ,had the same happen
when Gil was in rehab when I assumed I had slept
wrong as I tend to fall asleep with my arm under my
head/neck ....
I could do with a massage but I know THAT will not happen confused2

Ok so whispers good morning Marge .MU playing right now
on the TV tip toes out ......back later run run run

It's with a saddened heart I have to pass
on some news from our newest poster Liz
As you may or may not remember her husband
Rob was having constant blood transfusions
One of the reasons we got to be friends after Gil
went through the same last year
Unfortunately Rob was not as lucky as she just text me
to say Rob passed away 9pm your time and she missed
him by 5mins
I do not think they ever found out why or where he was losing
the blood as the last we spoke he was back in hospital having
more ...
She calls me Sister as we have a lot of things in common
with our lives ......
So sorry Liz Sad

Good, and I mean GOOD individual/independent shops yes but they're not that Bond.......  as for Nuneaton town centre it  died a long time ago, I didn't like Rope Walk but people raved about it,  not me, yes with the right shops but we didn't have the right shops....and look at the shops  now....pound shops, charity shops..... Mad   now a charity shop or two is fine but I'd hate to have to count the ones we've got now.    The only shop I go into these days is Debenhams, and that's not very often.   And if that ever went then the town would die.

Funny you should say that as a lot of people say they love the little independent shops of Atherstone and it's Nuneaton that's dieing on its feet with the big shops like M&S, woolworths and British home stores gone, may be you need a bit more time in the town a guided tour

Yes but once the old buildings have gone they've gone for ever.....we've knocked down too many old buildings, buildings which could have been saved and made into flats....look at Leamington, you keep the outta building and as many features as you can but still modernise it....flats, art centres, jewellery quarters , top class wedding dress shop.     I have to say for the Council to allow those buildings to be just allowed to fall down is a disgrace as well.    And Atherstone needs better shops, the shops they've got let the town down. More vision needed.

I'm glad you had a bit of a look around, it's not my home town but I have grown to love it
When lloydy has added some new buildings he has made a job of blending them in the main one the people have a go about is a ladies dress shop going into the market Square
It's said he has taken out the old mahogany fittings now letting it fall down internally
So some good some bad, he owns the big black and white building a as you come up from Dobbies the, Mancetter Manor
Last drinks before bed

We did walk round there Bond as well.    As for Alan Lloyd  to allow lovely old buildings like those to fall down shows he hasn't got vision.

Hi all, are I know where you were now and yes if you had gone to the carpark next to it the other side of the hedge that you get into by the church you would of seen the new modernisation of the old buildings, but yes Alan Lloyd is known to let buildings full down so he can build new
The marina at Hinckley has a good choice of menu
Arr the lady with the hat is a big hamdramer a good actress
The lady at the back of her with the black fasinator and black dress with the fabulous finger and great great legs was a man when I first saw her 40 years ago

funnytvprog  yes sorry "Pot of tea"  the T went missing.    bad T.

Ah you reminded me Margaret I keep saying I need to put a square stone into a pendant I had sent to me from my Penfriend from Ohio she bought it from Tiffany's I was about 12 yrs old and over the years I've worn it then one year one of the stones (like a diamond) fell out and though I've still worn it I've never replaced, it's a lovely dainty pendant, silver and silver chain and the T hall mark for Tiffany.

I didn't see anything I fancied Carole..... looked at the salad  "No"  didn't want a jacket potato....I quite fancied a plate of veg but they wouldn't have done that....nice cakes but talktohand   can't have too many cakes.  

Oh finished my book....forgot to say, it was/is good but won't keep it.....I'm now reading  a Harlan Coben book Margaret  "Six years"   really good.

This was the Leisure Centre Car Park Bond....a couple of nice tea   shops ....these buildings had all the windows smashed .....a disgrace.  IF Alan Lloyd own these he should be ashamed.

Who's the lady in the hat Bond?

Good evening all, yes I don't think we have a antique shop now we have a couple of bits and bobs shops, chalk paint furniture, I don't know what carpark it was as there is lots of poorly buildings but Lloyd, Alan Lloyd of Lloyds chemists owns most of them and is doing them up into flats
So Atherstone next Ashby to louby lou's

slithers in on belly and whispers
morning marge ...is that too loud ......

Sounds like a nice day brewing for you then ...we should
see this clear out sometime tomorrow midday and Sunday
again will be the pick of the week .....not that it makes a
flying squirrel these days confused2

So you had a "po" of tea @ missy duck ....how come
you did not eat anything except what you snuck from David
{he is another one who seems to eat well} as does Gil ...
I have come to the conclusion he will not STARVE to death ..

Only went to get Gil his scratch offs and picked up some
sachets of powder from a Polish Deli that you add to your Cornish pasties
or stuffed peppers and stuffed cabbage which they make on premises
BOY does it smell good when you go in there ,its like a small corner
store that sells meats and a few other supplies
The sachets are made by a company called 'Fant'
They say the storms could start again later you will find me
if it THUNDERS Vicky

Yes we were just about to go out when it threw it down and then it thundered, thought of you Carole, anyway it soon stopped and we went to Dobbies not been there this month, I had a po of tea but David had chicken & mushroom made in a pot, new potatoes & peas.  I pinched a potato and some peas.Smile     Then we went to Atherstone....just to have a look around.   Near the car park Bond there's some great very tall old empty buildings, where they had.... Hat makers was it Bond?   Shame nobody has bought them and turned them into something else,  they'll just fall into ruins.  confused2    which would be a crime.   Is there an Antique shop there, we didn't spot one but didn't go everywhere.

Good about your friend Carole though as I said it's usually just holiday makers who ramble down there, locals, unless they work there don't bother to go there.....anyway good news.

Bruce Forsyth has died.....89.    "Didn't he do well"  Smile  I couldn't resist it.  

14 died now.....and a little British boy missing. Mad

Back later.

Who is this woman who keeps yelling my name in my ear every morning?
I only woke up an hour ago (8:30am California time!

Its beautiful weather outside with just a breath of a breeze and sunny

Big Red is still running 100% so that's a relief.

Have something I have to check on this morning, I had two gardeners show up on
Wednesday saying they were taking over from my usual outfit as the lady that owns it
is trying to sell it. I let them do a quick tidy round but am going to call Alan's garden
service today to find out why I wasn't informed either by letter or phone call.
After the trim they gave my wild grasses on the parkway I am not sure I want them
doing the work anyway. Leo, who was partners with Alan passed away not long after Peter
and he was a true gardener and landscaper..

I am going to take one of my water colors back to be rematted , the Pear one has a pale yellow
matt on it and it does not match the deeper red on the Raspberry in intensity so want a darker
green one instead. Sometimes you just have to live with something for a while until you work
out what is not right and this is it.

I also need to take my necklace and watch in this morning to get them fixed (another small
item on my list). I have a notice to pick up another prescription refill and I need to get some
more canned cat food and cat grass. I would rather do it all today and not have to face the hoards
tomorrow. After 11 am here on a Saturday is total chaos!
I understand that people who work have only a couple of days each week to get their shopping done
but the traffic problems it creates is mind boggling.
Funny part is, all the places I need to go to are within a two mile area from where I live, so very
doable.

I don't remember if I told you about logging on the county fire and police departments site where
Melanie lives. I have been getting notices every day most of them about spot fires along grass verges.
It seems that most of them are caused by people pulling over for what ever reason and their very hot
catalytic converter is catching the grass on fire. Someone else has suggested that there is a fire bug at
work which I thought days ago.
With all the rain we have had, the wild grasses grow twice as big and then dry out in the high heat(110f)
so a very combustable situation.
Melanie says her cats are bringing home at least one dead vole each day as a present. Before, they were
lucky to see one once a month if they were lucky.
Now Carole has finished SHOUTING at me I will go and have some breakfast and get started. TTFN

an appointment at the hospital .....
That will be nice a meal for two tomorrow to reminisce

Sorry Vicky answered you with a

Had the Aid here this morning and the Visiting nurse who was
going to sign him off ,but now says she will keep him on another week

And HALLELUJAH we can get Colleen back next week
They had her down for Monday Wednesday and Friday at 8am ,but I see
Fran Wednesday and she would not have access to getting in so doing
Monday and Friday

Gil took a tumble as well last night or should I say early this morning
I had gotten up to go to the loo and let Buddy out and I heard this thud
he had gotten up to use the urinal bottle must have lost his balance
and down he went .....luckily he did not hurt himself but I had to get Blaine
up to lift him up ...he will NOT learn

OK just had a down pour so while its stopped going to pop to the store
as MORE expected

Heard from Jen Vicky my friend in Spain
they did go north as the weather has been so hot said the two weeks
were wonderful but have come back to temps again in the 30's c
,she lives down the coast from Barcelona...


MORNING MARGE

Yes it's lovely out at the moment though they're saying it's going to rain.

Oh those human statues where so good. I'm sure your friend will be ok Carole usually you find only the holiday makers around there.

We've booked a meal for tomorrow at The Royal Arms which is where we went for our Golden.

Tried to book the hospital but there's no "Room at the Inn" to try in a few days.

Later.
