Yes I've already thought about passing it on to Susan after I've gone or before Margaret....I've just sent the photos to Susan and the details. I've no worries about sending them that amount .....David's pointing out "Will it be comfortable with the brooch bar against you?" "Will it look ok with the brooch spike just showing" but that's how it was in Edwatdian days "Do you want to buy something without seeing it first in the flesh?" now I'm ....... oh "You might see something you like more....I'd wait" as I say I'm

That's good of Mrs B Bond.

Vicky, only you can decide about the necklace but if it was me,
I would look at it as a form of investment also.

Another nice morning here but the dry desert Santa Ana winds
are picking up out in the valleys and deserts so big fire danger
alerts on now. It has already happened in northern California
where most of the states best wines are grown.
Its north of San Francisco in the Napa Valley so way,way north of
Melanie and Jim.
Melanie had all her drains removed as she is healing so well.
Still need the PIC line for extra calories for now.
It seems they have given her a belly button after all, she could
not see it for all the bandages!
Ian got a bug on the way home so the stair project is on hold for now.
It is nasty but it is not the flu. That reminds me, must put Flu shot on
my list for this week.
The Trans Am license plate holders are due on the 12th so I can ditch
the Hybrid one. I don't mind the normal one which just Identifies the
business which is on BB but I have seen plate holders that would look
mean and lean on her .
I have about $45 credit on Amazon, think I am going to buy a couple of books
for the Kindle with it.
Nearly caught up with washingbasket but den looks like a Chinese laundry
with clothes everywhere. NO, I cannot hang them outside as they dry
too quickly and end up like cardboard. Its only my tops and when they are dry
enough I put them in the dryer on a dewrinkle cycle with a fabric softer sheet
and they come our ready to hang up!
I have a few dressy tops or blouses that go to the dry cleaners but the other
stuff is every day wear.

Going to have a light breakfast and write the check for the gardeners. I went through
a lot of statements yesterday which can be filed now I have looked at them.

Got a load done in the new dishwasher with no problem ( only took three days to
fill it) it is so quiet that you have to be right next to it to hear it running.
Fridge is working fine also.

See England scraped through again in world cup play ,not very inspiring but
adequate.

Afternoon ladies and tea coffee and L&Ls
You've got to do it now Vicky after going this far or you will always be thinking if only. any way money is not doing well in the bank these days so this could be a good Investment for the future or to pass on to Susan, mrsb gave some of her good gold to Ems when Jess was bourn then a couple of years ago she got together all the odd bits and things she didn't wear a y more and took it all to the jewellers, nothing wonderful but she got enough to buy a very nice Guci watch so from stuff she never would wear she has a nice thing she wears regularly
Malted milk?

So do we get to see a picture of Edwardian piece ?
and what do you MEAN you THINK

DO IT you know you want it

To clarify Junes post I think she had a ♥️ attack
some time ago and I guess THIS is what has been
happening since it causing HER symptoms that no
one could figure out WHY till she went to the private
Dr

Glad your friend is still here at least.

Oh I used to love melted cheese on top of tomato on bread roll.

Well got lots of photos AND I've spoken to the tourist board    so now it's.....go a head,   "I'M" now "Do I don't I?"    but I'm going ahead.....I think.

Good Afternoon ladies, just Back from the tip, it's busy down there lots of cars waiting to go in, yes they did ask if we wanted the men to take up the carpet for a fee but I wanted time to get sort out a couple of creeking floorboards that have never been right since the rad in the lounge was ungraded and moved so I'm doing it myself a third at a time

I saw your message pal but your 5 hrs AHEAD
of me so thought you would have called by the
time I posted

Just saw my dear friend June on FB messenger on line
so asked how things were going and got this disturbing message
back

Heart attack & strangled hernia. Blood cot went into my stomach
& rotted my bowel surgeon had 1 1/2 metres to construct a bowel.
Gave me 6% chance of survival on major surgery carried out -
I am still here & bowel is holding together ok.
On beta blockers rest of my life. Just gonna be very slow progress he says xx


She said she is home now and this happened while on that scan and that is what
had been apparently going on and she would be eternally grateful to a wonderful
surgeon

 Carole .....I posted. 11:12pm  Quote "I'm torn between if the details and photos I'm getting tomorrow are ok just buying it OR waiting until midday when the tourist board opens    Sigh!!!"  Unquote.   MIDDAY.  

Susan has wooden floors in the hall & kitchen but in the lounge it's carpeted, though they do have a rug where the coffee table is.   Both Steve & Rob have wooden floors throughout the down stairs, well both Steve & Rob do have tiles in the kitchen.....Steve & Claire have the original parquet floors in the hall, lounge & their diningroom and as I've said tiles in the kitchen.  Both of them have a rug in the middle on the lounge floor.   Though ALL the kids houses have carpets up the stairs and in the bedrooms, tiles in the bathroom.   Everyone takes their shoes off when they come into the house.....as they do here.

BP is down again today confused2 ......I only started taking my BP last year when one of the doctors said it was a good idea to do and it was only every so often.....but I've been told to keep my eye on it, and as I said I've got to take it for a week, every day, before I see my doctor just to check what it's doing.    Yes it is after my second lot of pills.    As I said in hospital I used to get woken up to have my BP taken, then just before breakfast BUT then it would be right AFTER we'd all had lunch  and right AFTER dinner....where often it would be 188/90   "Oh god it's up" they'd say  "Well it wasn't this morning "  I'd reply.  and of course when the Consultant said "If it's down she can go home"  HA it would be up again..     That's what we've got Upper Arm Cuff.

Opened the door on  it's never been closed.     you just can't get rid of her.

Morning ,so have you called the Tourist Board yet
Vicky ?
Good morrow Bond ,so when does the new carpet
arrive ? do you have wooden floors underneath ?
The big thing over here is if they find these having
them restored and not so much carpeting ,maybe
one of those large throw/area rugs like we have here as
Spencer pulled all the carpet while we were living in Stratford
and laid tile in the kitchen area and wood floors in the living
room ,which is good as your always getting the wear coming
up the stairs and going through the living room to the bedrooms
and bathroom etc

Vicky I would pick a time each day AFTER your pills but not
too close to having eaten or having just gotten  got up
Now the nurses are not coming in I do not take Gil's BP
that often maybe once a week ,the upper arm cuff I bought
works SO MUCH better than the wrist one I had ...

Raining here as Nate approaches ,but its the WINDS
that will be a problem as they are going to increase during the day
then tomorrow they are now saying will be GORGEOUS ,with rain
showers Wednesday ,nice Thursday and showers again Friday
We should only be in the 60's now but we are STILL in the 70/80's
cooling a bit the end of this week but 70's AGAIN by Saturday

Carmen will be  with some relatives
on Friday back to Puerto Rico to take some supplies as your allowed
50lbs in luggage and it would cost a lot to SEND that amount to them
assuming they would be able to GET IT as not sure if the PO is up and running
yet ,plus her father  is on Dialysis she wants to see if she can
talk them into coming here for a while to get his treatment or STAY
permanently which she would like especially now with how it is over
there   ,not sure how he is getting it done right now in the town where
they live which is the other end from San Juan and where the Hurricane
went out through ,she is going for a week ...


OK so waiting on everyone's chit chat ....OH NO looks like you have
opened the door Vicky talktohand funnytvprog

MORNING MARGE
Back later run run

Awwww with your Mum & sister.

I've to start taking my BP  a week or so before I see the doctor so he can chack how my BP's been going on.   So I started taking it again Thursday.....well you do get woken up in hospital to have your BP taken.....  as I know, and around 6:00 just before breakfast turns up ..... confused2  so we get told all sorts of things about when to take it.  

I get £100 out of my pension at the end of the month .....social security is a different thing over here.....(the rest of my pension goes into the house) with the £100 I buy any presents I have to,  various other things I might have to buy, pay for  hairdressers, clothes, undies etc etc going out with Bev   or going to the cinema the other day with :212 : .....I often put £20/30 in my saving up box.....once it's gone in and the box is locked that's it I don't get it out again.....IF I find towards the end of the following month I need to buy something and haven't any money I go to the Bank of David BUT I do have to pay him back.   I do sometimes, if I've got any money left over from the food shopping, add £5 or £10 to my saving up.....and you do find it's surprising how quickly it mounts up.   Found this out when I was saving up to give to Susan/David to help with various things for the wedding.....I couldn't believe how much I saved.....so when I went with Susan last year to the Mulbury shop I thought "That's it I'm saving up for a bag" and started saving.....oh I did ask everyone for money for birthday, christmas & mothers day.....though Susan bought a present instead,  so did David though he gave me money also.    

All I know at the moment is it's Edwardian & 15ct gold.    The photo  of it on the website looks beautiful.....I'm hoping I don't lose it.....I'm torn between if the details and photos I'm getting tomorrow are ok just buying it OR waiting until midday when the tourist board opens     Sigh!!!  

Ok then speak tomorrow gang.

Ummmm Dr Bourne here ,the 150's would seem to be OK Vicky
at your age ,although a "tad" high ,but when it dropped to
128/83 is strange ,do you take it EVERY day then ?
Also did you read about when and when not to take it
after getting up before or after a meal etc etc as I made the mistake
one day of taking Gil's as soon as he got up and BEFORE I gave
him his pills and it was up but after his pills and he had eaten the
nurse had come in and it was normal or should I say back down
from where I took it ,but your seeing the DR again right ?

Well way to go with your saving's is that out your SS every month
I keep thinking I will try and put my UK one away as it only runs
out to around $300 a month  ,but something always comes up that
I need it for confused2

Good idea to call the Tourist agency but sounds like its an established
company so I would not worry about THAT only that the pendent
is what you want it to be ,does it have a "history"

Now its a pity Bond could not have brought you a set of flimsies out
being as your not 100% to have gone into the window but you got
out so that is an improvement

I see that all the time Marge about dealers or garages putting
their logo on your car ,glad you got your plates done Vicky

Well took a nap as I was falling to  Sleep ,just now made Haddock
fillets for our meal ,I ate mine alone Gil had his on a hard roll with
butter
Now I am going to take my  shower
So have a good night every one

My BP on Thursday was  156/ 96    took it again 15 mins later and it was 150/87 it had come down....yesterday it was down 128/83  .....today it was 154/92  up again.  

Get to keep the underwear eh......

Any tea going Bond?  

Well went to Palmers.....I'm full as well Bond, anyway after feeding we were looking around and I saw another Christmas present     then off to M&S to get a birthday present   then to Curry's to look at their TV's  we've decided to get a new one for the lounge, and also a new one for the study.   David made notes  and now we've got to decide, IF we went to Curry's we would  get 8% off Susan & Matt's firm have a deal with them  BUT we might go to the little independent shop we got our dishwasher from and see if we can get a better deal there.....we got a good deal on the dishwasher so you never know.

Been talking to Susan and I told her about the pendant and while I was talking she got their website up and said it looked ok, loved the pendant the shops been there 30 years and they've been in touch with me and will be sending me details & photos tomorrow....then she said the tourist board is just round the corner from the shop so I could phone them and ask them about this shop     so I'm doing that tomorrow.  cheers  so everything is falling into plan.....and yes Carole it's the money I've been saving up for over a year, it's the money I thought I'd use to buy a Mulbury bag but David bought it for me for my Golden Wedding.....but I just continued saving and now I've got £750.00   and the pendant is £679.00  

Oh can I have a hot chocolate please Bond instead of tea?

What a cheeky machanic .....when I bought (well David bought it) my car they put EU flag on my personal number plates....I said "I don't want that on" he said it was something we had to have, but we'd looked it up just in case this had happened and you didn't HAVE to have this flag on your number plate so I told him and he said "Oh....I'll have to order new number plates, I'll get them put on by tomorrow" so the next day we went and picked the car up with the right number plates without the EU flag..

Good morning from the left coast of California. :-D
sunny is out but a bit misty. The wind is getting fresh
and its 69f right now and the sea mist is blowing back in.

Heard the Red Tailed Hawk this morning must have been
hunting and found something to eat and he was guarding
it from some Crows. What a noise!

Watched the first half of Scotland vs Slovenia, its 1-0
for the Scots so far. I am recording the rest of the game
as I am still catching up on all the washingbasket

Should have heard from Brad yesterday but the company
must keep him busy as they serve a wide area of northern LA
county. Know he will probably call tomorrow.
He tried to call me from somewhere on Friday and his phone kept
cutting out.
I think Tabbitha had a bad night last night she seems a little under
the weather this morning so came with me in here and curled up on
the studio unit.
Some cheeky mechanic at Hillside put one of their license plate holders
on Big Red which reads "Come to us for Hybrid service".
Found somewhere that has "Trans Am " ones so going to send for them.
I can get them in two days. No way am I driving Big Red around like that!

Still need to find a set of floor mats for BR, I have names of several places that
do parts and accessories for older cars so will keep trying. That's original floor
carpet in there so want to keep it nice.
Love the "Coventry in the 60s " site. Followed by "You must be from Torrance if....."
It is also a walk down memory lane.

Good afternoon ladies, Just Back from taking the kids back home, after going to the big house at Orton on the Hill, all kids big and small love it there, they went getting apples from the orchard, got to look I had a the spooky lavatory at the back of the coach house with the two holes in a plank and the big spiders
As we Sat wth freshly ground coffee and the best home made cheese scones with a cream cheese spread all before going to the Hinckley marina for lunch, kids meals were great We had a carvery not great, lots of meat but not good I would have sooner had little but good
Yes the good thing about you in the window besides us lads getting a eyeful is you get to keep the underwear you have on eye eye
The two blondes Sara and Rachel are partners in the business and looks like a key it ended up a Gin party
Another coffee and a fresh pot, L&Ls in the fridge

Good morning and look at the "Brothers Two"
on Choccy's Avatar √
And I see your boss has been eye  again Vicky lol!

I agree if you WANT the £600 pendent and its YOUR money and everything looks
OK when they get back to you GO FOR IT

Also when you say your BP is UP what is it normally and what
do you consider UP ,I mean Gil's is always around 120-130 over
60-70 or something so if it was up a little the nurses did not worry about
it ,as Gil's DR reamed out one visiting nurse when she called saying
Gil's BP was one day 161/80 ,he said that she should look up the
GERIATRIC code of BP as over 70 it is acceptable than for someone
younger  and that unless his BP was 190+ not to call him  confused2
She said her agency required her to report anything over 160 so she
was doing just THAT    

Have you tried jotting down what you have been eating and doing
since all this began ,maybe you can pinpoint something that is
triggering it ?
I am trying to do that to see what I am eating for my Dr when I see him next

Going to be a cloudy day today with a stiff breeze before the left over
affects of Hurricane Nate arrives with some MUCH needed rain tomorrow
into Tuesday I see he made landfall as a Cat 1 80mph so did not gain extra strength
while passing over the warm waters of the Gulf ,so they had some flooding
in Mississippi but not as bad as it could have been  
Anyway better see what kind of day I am in for with Gil when he wakes
up ,it was a really weird day yesterday he was very down  Mad

Fancy that Vicky you COULD have been in the window had you gone
{trouble is I bet Bond would have wanted to have been in there with YOU}

OK so MORNING MARGE    back later  run  run  run

Hi Choccy P, just been on the footy page.   Great that the Sitton Bros managed to get over and meet up and watch the game.  

Yes Bond you know which one you like when someone says "You could get that one" and you feel disappointed and think to yourself "But I want that one"    I'll see what the condition is, and what the photos show up.    

Ended up in the window also......it's a good job I didn't go then. Smile     "Hold me back Carole"

Still a bit woolly headed ......and my BP was up this morning. confused2   I'll have to go and see the doctor, it's about now I've got to see him anyway.

cheers I've had an email from the antique shop thanking me for my inquiry and they'll get back to me tomorrow.

Glad you got the hoover  Carole Bond can use it when he  over on the Wednesdays.          Oh that drives me potty when they ring the bell and without waiting .....there off  BUT these days they push a note (which must be in their hand already to push through) saying "You weren't in so we've taken it back to the depot"  and you open the door dash down the drive just as they're getting into the van and away they go with you standing there going    "But but I'm here"    

We've been to the gold quarter, we went to have a look around and went to have a look at how it first started.        Susan's friend Jessica had her engagement ring designed there....we'll gloss over that.... but it was lovely.    

Another book to add to my list then Carole. Smile

Yes my first job was at a Chemist Margaret  "Timothy Whites"  and the times we had to stay open....Oh dear I was so naive working at that place  

It was always half day closing on a Wednesday where I lived.

Oh Margaret everything you're going to do sounds lovely.

Reading your post about Peter had me nodding and saying "That's David'" when we first got married we of course held hands and often if I slowed down to look in a window he would walk faster....we still hold hands but he doesn't do that now.....he knows words work. THOUGH he doesn't mind me buying clothes in fact he'll point out something I might like.....it's just other things.  Mad

Anyway I've sent them an email asking for more details and if they could email me photos.

I believe the chemists in England used to rotate who would be open when everyone else
was closed as I remember you could always rely on some where to get meds if you needed
them. You just had to find them first!
I never understood the half day closing rule as it was different in each area.
Was it to do with how many hours you stayed open on other days?

Imagine if you will a bare window, then make it look like it has three small panes
across the top. In the old days when it was all small windows with mullions across
and up and down, as you say a pain to clean( I did my mums enough time).
Some time you were not able to replace the small panes of glass so you knocked
out some of the mullions and put in a larger pane to replace the four to six small panes.

Mine will be removable and on the outside to give it a cottage style look familiar in
Maine cottages here. I could have them on the inside but it gives the outside of the
house the look it has now, a modern addition on an older house. As I said they will be removable
to clean the windows. Later, I will have the sliding glass door in the office done the same way.
Add a glass kitchen door and it gives the back of the house a more cottagey feel to match
the front. then I can get new front door that is more craftsman in looks.
I think the stucco finish (beige)will last a few more years but will have the trim repainted white as its
getting a little grubby. This house begs for a few flowers in pots and boxes and a hanging basket.
It will take time to get it to look the way I have wanted for many years.

Vicky , all I can say is if you want it bad enough, buy it now, if you don't, you will keep telling your-
self later, I wish I has bought it when I had the chance.
David is a bit like Peter was. When we would go shopping in the giant Mall
near us and he was holding my hand, I used to slow down to look in every jewelry shop window
and Peter used to squeeze my hand tighter and speed up! He swore he didn't know he was doing it!
He bought me some nice pieces over the years but never" got "what my taste was.

He would say "what do you want that for?" I would say "Because it would make me feel pretty".
He would then say "You look pretty enough as you are." He never stinted himself when it came
to buying expensive items on a whim!
He bought computers when they cost thousands of $$ to have the latest technology without
telling me! He bought Big Red which I never got to drive.
He was never cruel about it but made it seem like he earned the money so he was entitled.
It was the one side of him that annoyed me. It was his father coming out and I told him so.
He finally understood and things were very different after that.
Funny what Testosterone will do. Shocked

Can remember years ago when the only place
open on a holiday was the corner paper store
and they CLOSED at 1pm so if you were lucky
you MIGHT grab a loaf of bread or some milk
if you had run out ,but it was mostly newspapers
and candy. as even back then they KNEW they
had a captive audience and CHARGED what EVER
they felt like ...

We also have some grocery stores open 24X7 Vicky
but even they close early Christmas Day sometimes
the only place open 24X7X365 is Walgreens Pharmacy
that also sell groceries and some clothing items like
tee shirts tops slippers and flip flops ...
Your right about the Asians I believe you can order a
Chinese delivery on Xmas Day
Bet Wee Wah makes out like a BANDIT for tips
THAT day funnytvprog

The lady from the wheel chair looks very "healthy" Bond

I have Amazon Prime Vicky and should be able to down load
a LOT of free books on my Tablet/Kindle ,WHEN I can figure
out how to DO THAT headbanger have to grab Spencer
and ask him to show me
I bought for $59 a Fire 8" screen Tablet ,much bigger than my old Kindle

My new hoover just arrived via FedEx ,the driver was confused
as it seems he was the one who picked up the damaged box Thursday
as I was WAITING on the door step to make SURE THIS one was OK
good job I saw him pull up though as he would have left it outside rang the
bell ♪ ding dong ding dong ♪ which my note outside instructs any deliveries
to please do as I have a large plastic container with a lid by the mail box
for any packages too big to put in with the letters {otherwise they just LEAVE
them by the door and TAKE OFF } where we are being a dead end and we are the
END house its OK but they could also be SWIPED by ANYONE walking down the street
should they feel inclined as the latest scam now is to follow the delivery trucks
like FedEx and UPS and WATCH ,if no one comes out they have been known
to walk off with the parcels affraid

Ok who has the drinks

Got Gil up shaved dressed and watching Belgium Vs Bosnia
after eating his McDonalds sarnie

Ah that's how it used to be over here Carole most shops are open every day  (Maybe Scotland is different they have their own laws) and certainly the large shops open 7 days a week and late closing these days.....just some shops manage to close on one day a week.  It comes as a shock to us when a shop is closed on a certain day we're used to them being opened 7 days a week, some days up until 10:00 and Supermarkets are opened all night.    At C&A I always went in on Boxing Day &  New Years Day.....shops are ALWAYS closed on Christmas Day of course, the one day every shop is.     Though saying that I have a feeling Asian shops are open that day also.

Back later.....is almost dinner.

I'm reading the menu in that avatar.

BTW forgot....yes Margaret Cov's doing quite well.

I'll have a look at that later Bond.

Good picture of Sara Bond in the window

Well that is the UK for you Vicky with shops
closed more often than not ,although over here
they are trying to close on more holidays now to
give employee's more time at home with family

Thanks Giving
being one of them ,and I agree
with that its always the third Thursday of November
so people can afford to stop home ONE day during the
week I would think confused2

Well asked Gil if he wanted to get up before he said not yet
and here we are at 10 of 11 am and he is STILL in bed
so better go roust him OUT ...be back
it was also foggy and HUMID here this morning 65f at 6am
the sun is TRYING to burn off the fog

Oh and yes Fran my hairdresser closes Monday for the same reason
as she is open late Thursday nights till 8pm and also Saturday
but never see a Jewellery store closed , and the Antique stores
are more likely to have shortened hours like only open till 4pm
Be back

Oh I like flappers Bond......shake that booty.  

Don't know about that Carole but he certainly knows how to talk me out of things.....I keep saying "From now on....."  .but it still happens.      confused2

I'll look at the youtube in a mo Carole.

Oh some small shops are closed (or used to) on a Monday.....my hairdressers are so they can give the shop a clean up & not just a brush & dust.   BUT that shop I've found out is closed today TODAY Saturday.   confused2  THOUGH it is in the Gold Quarter and I think that is closed on Saturdays.

Yes the reason my window cleaner hates my windows Carole, we've got them top and bottom....but I love them.  

The Youtube was good Bond

Hi Vicky seems David knows more about
what you want and don't want than YOU DO funnytvprog
too bad your "not feeling up to a trip into "Brum" today
and why would they be closed Monday ,is it a holiday over
there confused2
You could telephone  and ask the hours ,but it should
also be on their web site David pulled up confused2  just saying

Sara looking well Bond and the lady in the wheel chair was she buying
or wanting to be a model

I popped to the shopper  early avoided the Saturday rush
was only going for cat food but figured while there why not do it ALL
so I did shopper

Popped into Mc Donalds on the way home for a egg McMuffin for Gil Blaine
and me I ORDERED 2 with bacon and one with sausage for Gil ,got home
and ALL THREE are sausage headbanger
Tried to call to complain but after looking at the slip it said
2 sausage
and then 1 sausage  instead of 1 bacon so the twat of a woman
punched it IN WRONG
Being as I went through the drive through I only checked to make
SURE I had three sandwiches and hopped on the highway  
When I called the phone just rang and rang then said no V/M had been set
up {they are renovating all of the stores around here and this one only opened
back up last week } headbanger headbanger
Well better go get Gil up I guess ,and so my day begins .....
No regular headball  today either right ?

MORNING MARGE
Is this {my Avatar} what you call the "Cottage look"

I would imagine they are hard to clean though to bad they cannot put the lattice
in between the glass so its smooth on BOTH sides

All our front windows are lattice Carole, top & bottom which our window cleaner hates funnytvprog  I love them.

Is David all for it now?  You have got to be kidding......he got a shop in Birmingham up showing me a couple of pendants Mad   THEN I started looking myself and saw this all pearls edwardian one ....and it was only £475  "That's nice" said me....he looked at it "Those pearls look funny....you wouldn't like that"  "Well we could go and have a look at it and then I could have a good look at the others" I said  "You're not up to it today and most likely they're closed Monday Tuesday we're at the dentist and I'm sure we're doing something Wednesday" he went on headbanger  honestly  he just does my head in.

Having my starter. Ohhhhh it was yummy.

Morning Bond ,have fun are YOU doing a strip
for the window display

Nice seeing you pop in again Marge and with good news
as well as advise for Vicky on her "wanted" purchase
I also saw the 15 caret ,I know in the UK 18c is more
the norm than here where its 21c ,or is that the opposite
Marge and I know there is also 10c

Marge your windows, are you having that "lattice" look that was
popular back home with some of our neighbors ,I know
my Nan only had the top windows done ,but next door they had
them ALL done.
Wish we could see a picture of what your getting confused2

Glad your feeling better any way and hope Vicky is also
I feel OK now,at 6am  always do after first getting up
its later on I start to feel it headbanger

Buddy tried to wake us at 4am again so shut him out the
bedroom till he was trying to PULL THE DOOR DOWN so up I
got at 530am Rolling Eyes
This cat is because as soon as I come out and sit at my
 he curls up and settles down  its like he does
not like to be ALONE
The thing I hate about this time of the year is the dark mornings
and early dark nights
We should also be getting some of the rain from the latest Hurricane
Nate
that should make landfall tomorrow around Alabama/New Orleans  then
work its way inland arriving here Monday into Tuesday ,the winds by
then should be down to only 30mph but its the we are NEEDING
badly again ,tomorrow it will come in as a Cat 1 80mph with 100mile
an hour gusts

As long as I don't have to move Bond......still woolly headed confused2  though that's better than I was feeling.  

Oh I've heard of 15ct before Bond as Margaret says it could be foreign, don't think it's Indian Bond the style isn't Indian, could be French.......I could phone the shop and ask,  they do say most of their stock is mainly sourced throughout the Highlands of Scotland but then it could have been bought for a loved one while their husband/father/brother was abroad.  I am thinking about telephone      I saw a lovely 1760 glass in Warwick but David talked me out of it.    I also love Art Deco jewellery also Margaret.

Weather's cleared though the sky is still grey,  staying in today.

Had cornflakes & warm milk for breakfast, thank you Bond,

Good morning all from Atherstone a bit wet this morning
That's a point Marge, I did think 15? I hadn't heard of it before but I know nothing, I know Indian gold can be odd, but if it's a thing of beauty and and age provenance does the
That come into it?
Saturday again and renew the tablets time in their box
Breakfast then it's over to Ashby for the live window so if you are ready Vicky there's a nice little number with your name on it
Breakfast and it's cornflakes and warm milk. toast and marmalade Coffee tea orange juice Back later

I have bought some jewelry over the internet and have been quite pleased with it.
If it is hallmarked then it might be worth it. Only thing I am concerned about is the
15 Carat content of the gold, basic standard has always been 9,14, 18,22 and 24.
in UK, it may be a foreign piece. I adore old jewelry, I am smitten with Art Deco.

Just had a phone call from the windows man and the factory can do the grid pattern
I want, so tomorrow we will finalize the deal and the price.

Down to my last can of cat food so taking a run to the Grocery store in a while.
.
Watching US vs Panama in qualifying game for World Cup, they were winning 4-0
which means that they are through as they won the first game also.
Thought England was not going to make it but again they squeaked through.
Finally found the division that Coventry is in and they are not doing too badly
right now are they ?


The sunny is starting to go down earlier now, wish we could stay on daylight saving
time year round here when the weather is like this. Weather is getting warmer again.
Its great to have long evenings when the weather is fine, people really like being outside
walking, biking and sitting out just looking at the ocean. Lots of dogs being walked.
Feeling a lot better now so hope you are too. TTFN

My Chicago Salesman from my old company
posted this on FB funnytvprog

SMART ASS:
Two young businessmen in Florida were sitting down for a break in their
soon-to-be new store in the shopping mall.
As yet, the store wasn't ready, with only a few shelves and display racks set up.

One said to the other, "I'll bet that any minute now some senior is going to walk
by, put his face to the window, and ask what we're selling."
Sure enough, just a moment later, a curious senior gentleman walked up to the window, looked around intensely and rapped on the glass, then in a loud voice asked,
"What are you sellin' here?"

One of the men replied sarcastically, "We're selling ass-holes."

Without skipping a beat, the old timer said,

"You must be doing well. Only two left."


Seniors -- don't mess with them, They didn't get old by being stupid!

Thanks for the advice guys......MARGARET.
