Another HOT day here, its now 88f inside the house but already in the 90s  outside!
The humidity level keeps dropping, its about 33% but in the deserts and valleys
it could be in single digits! They are forecasting another 101f day.
It was not that bad yesterday as the air was so dry.
There has already been an arrest for a lot of spot fires in apartment complexes
parking areas, Several cars destroyed.
A few suspicious spot fires along the freeways here this morning and an earthquake
on Catalina Island (22 miles away). Small really but they are getting closer.

Yes I finally had Big Red towed back to Hillside as they were the ones who worked on it
last. One of the young men who work on my car says they have a guy who is not an employee
of the garage but is on call to replace windshields who might know who can do weather stripping
on Big Red as most places it turns out will only use the kits that they buy and install, not some
after market kits. I did tell them that BR leaked like a sieve in the last rain fall , he will be
under a car cover for the winter this time round.
If they cannot get BR engine fine tuned, at least I will be able to drive him to a specialist in
Lawndale (and not a lawn in sight).

Working through my big  list an item  a day, had five bright pink post-its on my mirror now there
are four and soon there will be three.
Haven't opened my property taxes yet (one for the house and one for the desert 2 &1/2 acres.)
That I need to look at and pay.

I found a whole lot of paperwork for the Ultrasound and who referred me. I also read the two
rather large yearly books we get, one from Medicare and one from United Health care and from
what I read this should have been covered as it was part of a follow up visit to do with
my Non-alcoholic fatty liver which needs tests every two years to track its progress. I hadn't
had one for four years!   I am not costing them very much ,Three pills (Thyroid, blood pressure
and anti depressant) along with a long term asthma inhaler and an emergency inhaler which
I carry with me at all times.
And we haven't even started the 2018 enrollment yet!
I know I pay $65 co-pay for an emergency room visit but not tests ordered by a Dr. and
Gastro Specialist.  confused2

As I said, I think the Fairies and Gnomes have been planning their Halloween party and costumes.
They may come and help me when the glider comes, its handy to have tiny fingers when you drop
a small screw.  TTFN

funnytvprog is it Bond, that's Lidl and the other one is Aldi oh well the other day I told David Jessica, Wilf & her Mum were going to Maidenhead after visiting Susan and staying over night....."Where we stopped on the way home" only to find out that's MINEHEAD where they're going and where we stopped to have a look around.....told you Carole me and directions.....one is in Kent the other near Susan's. confused2

Went to Tamworth after they'd fiinished

And stop being mean Bond.....a large L&L to make up for it....I'll have hot chocolate please.

cheers yes they've been and gone, only took three quarters of an hour....love them both but the one in the lounge is lovely, goes well with the stand David got on the internet....saw the stand at John Lewis but cheaper on the internet. confused2

A little Brit humor just got from one of Gil's
old work mates in Coventry

> BOOK CLUB
> We had a novel experience at a recent meeting of our book club at
the Men's Shed.
> One of our senior members, Ted Roberts who is himself an author lauded
for his timeless work "Woodworking for Profit and Pleasure", came up with an
interesting suggestion.
> He said his wife thought that we should read a book called
"Fifty Shades of Grey" as we might learn something from it.
Someone thought it would come in handy when re-painting the house.

> The chaps were all asked to attend our next meeting with some notes
relating to their experience of reading the book and its relevance to our activities.
At the follow-up meeting we had an enthusiastic full house where the blokes recounted the literary impact of the novel.
>
> Here are their experiences:
>
> Bill Carruthers, 74
> We tried various positions – round the back, on the side, up against a wall.
But in the end we came to the conclusion the bottom of the garden was the only place for a good shed.
> ------------------------------ ------------------------------ -------------
> Nick Enwright, 86
> She stood before me, trembling in my shed
> “I’m yours for the night,” she gasped, “You can do whatever you want with me.”
> So I took her to Bunnings.
> ------------------------------ ------------------------------ ----------------
> Ted Roberts, 79
> She knelt before me on the shed floor and tugged gently at first, then harder until finally it came. I moaned with pleasure. Now for the other boot.
> ------------------------------ ------------------------------ ----------------
> Tom Entwhistle, 73
> Ever since she read THAT book, I’ve had to buy all kinds of ropes, chains and shackles. She still manages to get into the shed, though.
> ------------------------------ ------------------------------ -----------------
> Jack Farthing, 78
> “Put on this rubber suit and mask,” I instructed, calmly.
> “Mmmm, kinky!” she purred.
> “Yes,” I said, “You can’t be too careful with all that asbestos in the shed roof.”
> ------------------------------ ------------------------------ ----------------
> John Hardcastle, 72
> “I’m a very naughty girl,” she said, biting her lip. “I need to be punished.”
> So I invited my mum to stay for the weekend.
> ------------------------------ ------------------------------ ----------------
> Colin Horrocks, 65
> “Harder!” she cried, gripping the workbench tightly. “Harder!”
>
> “Okay,” I said. “What’s the gross national product of Nicaragua ?”
> ------------------------------ ------------------------------ -----------------
> Malcolm Riddock, 75
> I lay back exhausted, gazing happily out of the shed window. Despite my concerns about my inexperience, my rhubarb had come up a treat.
>
> ------------------------------ ------------------------------ -------------
> Allen Cardly, 74
> “Are you sure you can take the pain?” she demanded, brandishing stilettos. “I think so,” I gulped.
> “Here we go, then,” she said, and showed me the receipt.
> ------------------------------ ------------------------------ -----------------
> Humphrey Landsdowne, 56
> Hurt me!” she begged, raising her skirt as she bent over my workbench.
> “Very well,” I replied. “You’ve got a fat arse and no dress sense.”
> ------------------------------ ------------------------------ -----------------
> Nicholas Benchley, 53
> “Are you sure you want this?” I asked.
> “When I’m done, you won’t be able to sit down for weeks.” She nodded.
> “Okay,” I said, putting the three-piece lounge furniture on eBay.
> ------------------------------ ------------------------------ ----------------
> Toby Williams, 60
> “Punish me!” she cried. “Make me suffer like only a real man can!”

We're having Laura tomorrow Bond.

Yes and the police could have shot him and then all hell would have broken out "It wasn't a real gun, nobody was in danger"  Mad      Margaret had mentioned it could be a replica shotgun.

Not sure how they test whether It's heredity Bond.... confused2   I don't think it is....and I don't think the Consultant thinks it is either.

She didn't say Carole just 203 and glared at me......Well Miss snooty I'm sorry for having a high blood pressure smack my legs"   it was low this morning.  123/72

Busy day here too.....TV's arriving.

Oh we're having an Auldi as well, nearly finished in fact......where the New Car Garage was, the top of Higham Lane.

Just wanted to let you know that thermometer says 101f here,
Yes, we did have a very small brush fire up in Palos Verdes but
it was out before it burned a quarter of an acre!
By jove the lads were quick!
Had my hair trimmed out of my eyes so feel normal now.
Next up is calling the AAA to tow Big Red in to the service station.

Well I wonder how they check to see if its
heredity then Vicky ? the thing that bothers me is your BP
203 over what ? as that IS HIGH even though as you say
you got a bit worked up before going in
One of the reasons MY GP after the nurse has taken my BP
before he comes in ALWAYS takes it again as he says it gives
you a little chance to calm down ,not that I am normally
up tight when seeing him confused2

Marge glad your on top of the situation then ,and the glider
sounds like a great thing to add to the porch along with some
nice planters ...
Too bad you could not get the pete and Fairies to help put it together
maybe offer them extra fairy dust and time in the sprinklers at night confused2

I made these Angus beef steaks I bought Sunday did them under the
broiler made my Zucchini and cheese dish ,jacket potato, carrots and corn
{except for me cannot eat any more corn} Gil drank his gravy off the plate
wish his walking was as good as his appetite headbanger

Been clouding up all day they are saying tomorrow night could see some
GOOD THUNDER BUMBERS and high WINDS that with all the leaves
still left on the trees could bring down power lines {I HOPE NOT}

Ok so I should away see if I can grab my shower before Spencer
gets home
Sleep well every one speak in the morning BOND L & L please

I don't know if it was good news Bond. I suppose it wasn't bad news......I think I should have left it a while before going for the blood test though, give my Statins a chance....BUT David thought I might as well do it today seeing I was there.....and per usual I went along with him. Mad No I didn't book just went along and waited....no the number system wasn't being used.

Please to the Bond.

Hi ladies, well do you feel it was good news Vicky? Did you have to book in for the blood test or is it just sit and wait as last time I went they had stopped the number tickets
Yes it would be good for Mary and the kids to move back close

Well just had dinner.....skinless chicken potions, mashed potatoes & sprouts .....didn't get in until 5:00  ....my appointment wasn't until 3:00 Carole,  I saw the consultant and he examined my hands and arms....oh the nurse weighed me and took my BP affraid  she said "Is your blood pressure always high?"  "Not until I get it done at here at the hospital"   it was high, talktohand  but in my defence....I'd read on the bottom of my letter I had to present a  wee sample.....oh  I can wee for England   ....not this afternoon I couldn't, I only got a trickle, they'll need more than that I kept thinking, and trying  Mad  so in the end it was "Oh that'll have to do"   THEN it was packed in the car park.....round & round we went until David said I'll have to drop you off and come and find you or just sit somewhere until you get out.   JUST then a car come out so we parked......wasn't late for my appointment anyway.....but I knew my BP would be up.....203 Shocked   anyway I gave her my home readings   "Give these to the doctor" she said after looking through them.....snooty cow she was.     Anyway saw the consultant....he read what my doctor had said in his letter, "So he wants me to check you out"  he checked my hands & arms for any lumps confused2  wasn't any....looked into my eyes  "They're clear" he said,  read my BP readings, also read my tablet list, I told him about the tablets which made me sick and he nodded, seemed to understand,  gave me a blood test slip (I hadn't eaten at all so that was ok)  said he'll see me again in 3 months, just to keep taking my tablets, so then I went off to the blood dept  had that done (sat 45 minutes) ....bought a beef & salad sarnie on the way out of the hospital which I ate on the way home.....then I telephone  Susan to tell her what the consultant said (not a lot)   OH and they didn't ask for my sample bottle   confused2  all that for nothing.

So Mary might be coming this way again.....   she'll be nearer to her grandchildren.

You go for it Margaret (the bench)   it'll look great.

Oh oh be careful of those fairies & gnomes being too quiet.

Ok back later..... oh the avatar is Ted and Betsy (the Mum) looking to make sure her baby is ok....I was stroking her saying "He's ok"

I got the warning and have been watching what the weathermen(and women)
have in store for the next few days.

The beaches will not be spared this time round. Funny, the temps are going up
and the humidity is going down. My little weather station says its 38% humidity
at the moment and 73.4f.I think it will be at its hottest between 1 and 4pm.
Don't worry, I know how to take care of myself. I have two containers of
chilled filtered water and 6 small bottles of spring water and about 9 cans
of Iced Tea.
I am in no danger from wild fires here in my local area, its too built up.
I have a sprinkler system which turns itself on four times a week and I
have two 50ft hoses at the ready if needed.
Its the foot hills that suffer the most all around Los Angeles county.

Think of greater Los Angeles County as a huge delta (flat) with rising foot hills
to the San Bernardino mountains. Its the foot hills that pose the most danger
as they are in their natural state and after a winter rain of more than 6 inches over
normal, the weeds and Chapparal grew like crazy and now with our Santa Ana
winds at this time of year, are drying out really fast so creates a lot of fuel fast.
Its always been this way. The local native Americans named it "The valley of
the smokes", Meaning that camp fires could be seen from long distances.
It also applies to wild fires, most of which were caused by lightning.
The huge Redwoods and Pines are set by nature to drop their seeds and have
them germinate by fire!
Its natures plan.

I was looking on the internet for a bench of some kind for the front porch
(there is a bistro set out there, painted metal in a turquoise color)
I wanted something close to the same color bench as the porch runs along
the front of the house but is not very deep.
I came across a metal glider which matches great. Gliders do not rock but just
move back and forth and is a two seat one that is just the right size on
Overstock.com so ordered it straight away. Its was not very expensive either.
Put some plants pots out there and it will look nice.
I will have to assemble it myself but I have done projects like this in the past.
Its more for looks than being used a lot. Empty porches look so forlorn.
We don't used them a lot now but they were meant to sit outside and drink your
coffee in the morning and greet your neighbors. Or at sunset with a glass of wine.
Its a very laid back community near the beach.

Fairies and Gnomes have been quiet lately, guess the heat got to them so been
playing in the sprinklers at night and sleeping during the day.
I think they are also making their Halloween costumes for the 31st.
They continue to play tricks on me by hiding stuff in the house.
I will have my revenge when everything is put away.
TTFN

Well its nearly noon here so that means 5pm
in the UK wonder what time Vicky;s appointment
was for

Got a telephone from  Dr Small's Urologist stand in
Gil's bloody urine sample came back negative so guess
that is good as I think they were testing for cancer cells
as these Polyps he grows are cancerous
Have made a appointment to see Dr Small Oct 31st
please let it be easy to get him there

Sun is in and out today and getting humid as this front gets closer

Looks like Marge is going to be in for some BIG heat 100f in LA
and the WINDS are going to be picking up so not a good
combination , they showed a fire already burning just to the North of her
I text her telling her to stay safe she gave me a

Just made Gil and me a r/beef sarnie for lunch having some fruit with mine

Ok so I shall just sit over there and wait on the news chattable

Morning Bond BYE santa Bond
Big Tall Mary's @
Well I was a bit concerned again last night
as being a Sunday night  Spencer is  "normally"
home from Carmen's by 1015pm the latest ,so when I woke
up and saw it was 1145pm and saw Tabitha was still out on
our couch sleeping ,I took the bull by the horns and telephone
his cell ,anyway long story short they had gone to Long Island NY
on the Ferry went to get on the 630pm one back to Bridgeport
{its an hour and 15min trip normally} but it did not LEAVE until
930pm so he was not sure what happened as they usually
have three Ferry trips a day that leave from this side at  9am 130pm and 630pm
they go back and forth ,he thinks maybe one of the boats was taken out of service
yesterday confused2
So by the time he stopped to get gas it was after 12midnight when he pulled
into the garage and he gets up again at 440am for work



Check it out
https://88844ferry.com/AboutUs/ALookattheFleet.aspx

Gil is already complaining about his left foot now hurting underneath
its always SOMETHING every day headbanger

Blaine asked Danny if he would come over and help get Gil downstairs
if I have to get him into Dr Smalls this week so just hope he is home
and can manage him

OK MORNING MARGE and hope Vicky has some good news when she
gets back
I shall return ....another nice day not quite as warm but dry till
tomorrow when they are hoping for

 My husband's watching the Grand Prix....I said "Oh you watching that?" he offered to go into the lounge and watch it there and so I can watch what we've recorded over the weeks but I said "No you can watch it here"  he said "Don't you play the Martyr here"  funnytvprog  

I was like that Margaret years ago, we went to Jersey and visited Jersey Zoo ended up buying this really soft large Gorilla ....sitting there in departure lounge with it on my knee and carrying it onto the plane like a baby....I still love Guy. Smile   of course the boys said "Mum you didn't"  of course I did they should know me by now. Smile

Yes I keep a log of my BP and hand it to my doctor or when I go to the hospital.....trouble with hospital they take no notice.....and my BP is always up.  Mad

I used to give up cakes when I had to have my blood taken so that my cholesterol would be ok Margaret...these days it doesn't matter it's always high, that's why I'm off to the hospital tomorrow they're checking to see if it's hereditary    confused2  IF it is the kids have to be tested.  Not sure how they'll test me.   Shocked    anyway after I come home I'm going to eat a muffin I bought the other day.  Smile

Drivel Margaret?      Never ever.......any down tools (rubber gloves)  from the fairies or the gnomes these days?

Avatar is Ted, when we went to see the puppies Ted snuggled up to me and went to sleep....I looked at Louise and she shook her head "He's spoken for" so we nearly got Ted instead of "Lionel Bear" Benjie's name when they registered him. funnytvprog they don't look like Yorkies when they're very young puppies.

He scored the goal for Everton!

I guess the crazy person might not have a
"real" gun anyway, one can never tell from a
distance. That's why many kids get shot here
playing at Gangsters. Its either an air gun or
a water pistol with the red bead on the end of
the muzzle either cut off or spray painted black.
How can they expect the police to know that.
They do not have x-ray vision. confused2
anyway, hope all ends up OK.

It seems we are slipping back into another
Indian summer here.
The sky is completely cloudless so the sunny is
very bright outside and the temps are going up again.
It was quite cold at 4am which woke me up as I only have
a flannel sheet over me usually. Even the cats were cuddled
up closer than they usually are.

Where we live, its lots of big sand dunes which fleas love
but I have never found a flea on either of my cats. In fact
one year I applied some fleas killer and it drove them mad!
I even put flea collars on them and Jagger wriggled out
of his and poor Tabbitha got one front paw through hers
and was wearing it like a bullet belt! It gave her a nasty
scrape under her arm before we could get near her to take it off.
I do comb through their coats with a flea comb I have but have
never found a flea on them!
I don't know if its because they are indoor cats but my last two
before them were also indoor Moggies but they got fleas so I
treated them every couple of months as they were not that bad.
Infections or abscesses are caused by flea bites and they can
also be allergic to them.
In Connecticut the cold weather will usually kill the little B***ers
but out here they are active year round as its too warm to kill
them!
Funny thing is I have dogs on both side of me and across the street
and down below me but thankfully if they have them, they keep good
flea control.

There is a difference of 7lb between my scale and the one at
the Drs. office! I kind of split the difference allowing for the clothes
and shoes. I also usually don't eat breakfast if its an early morning
appointment (aren't I the little cheat!) Then I come home and have
a big lunch. tongue

Its the same with their automated blood pressure machine, the cuff
they use is too small so it squeezes until my arm turns white.
Then it does it over at least 3 times before the nurse turns it off and
takes it manually at the end of the visit. My machine at home does
it better.
I keep a log, taking it first thing in the morning and last thing at night
for 10 days and give her the results.

My newest Paddington bear arrived yesterday while I was out shopping.
He is just darling and came at a darling price, $250, Its a Steiff bear,
I have three others in different colors which Peter bought me over time.
Its a collectors bear, not to be played with.
When I get rid of the books in the bookcase in Peters office I will be putting
them behind glass doors with the other special bears I have.
That's why I would rather buy anniversary bears or bears that most people don't get
to collect. I have a beautiful lady aviator all in pink which I got on a Virgin Atlantic
flight. I am the only adult who gets given her bear in a brown paper bag so as not
to let the children on the flight see it. Smile
Going through customs with that little head peeking out of my carry on bag seems to
relax everyone. They think its for a grandchild.
Enough drivel for one day. TTFN

Well done with losing the weight

No the £160 was for just that days treatment.....in 3 months time we'll have to get Benjie's flea & ticks pills and pay for them, sometimes we do pay for 6 months pills but either way it's flaming expensive, but it for his own good so we pay.   Yes we've also got pet insurance,  wish it covered pills, check ups etc.  confused2    We had Benjie chipped when he was a young puppy, also done when he was 6 months.        Bev's dogs been chipped (over here you have to have your dog chipped)  though she's not had him done and he does hump other dogs when he goes in the park....or when he used to, she can't manage him...oh he's a "Sprocker"  mixture of springer spaniel & cocker spaniel ....  anyway Bev can't afford to pay vets bills so she goes to PDSA and get's it free.  

Oh my book is getting really good  

Hi Bondy.... it seems the incident is over....though the armed police are still there.  Police using flash grenades

Hi Carole, we went to Woodlands (another place to visit Bond ) I didn't know what to have talktohand no sweet stuff I'm at the hospital tomorrow. I decided I'd have a fish finger sarnie littleBlond when I told the assistant she said "Would you like some chips also?" "Oh please I said" then she said "And salad?" I told her yes I would "And coleslaw?" she asked "Please" I said "But no cheese" Smile well I'm stuffed. David had a turkey dinner and walnut cake. that's it for us.....well maybe a sarnie later.

Went to one of the shops nearby The Edinburgh Woollen Mill" and bought a lovely woollen cowl necked sweater £30 onto my bill. a lovely minky pink colour.
Coming back Susan texted asking if we were ok? Of course. confused2 she went on about a man holding a shot gun was holding hostages in our local ten pin bowling.....little kids having their birthday party there being held. ALSO the police are keeping the cinema in lock down also Frankie & Bennys.....had to telephone to tell her "It's a good job we weren't at the cinema". it might frighten her to stop pestering me.

Yes pets are expensive, we have to give Benjie flea & tick pill (in his food, usually a bit of sausage) every 3 months & a pill for worming and every 12 months he has injections, one for leptospirosis and then a vaccination for kennel cough goes up his nose.....he's ever so good though doesn't make a peep. he does have a check up also and his nails checked.....all that costs £160.

Back later.

Morning , talktohand have to pass on the crumpets
crying  can't have them any more
Having only been on one of the new pills since I saw the DR
I decided to take the 2nd one last night with my dinner {well
she said try one see how it does with my tummy etc} this
morning have a bit of a tummy ache but will hang in ,although
I hope it settles before I have to go to the shopper
later to get the rest of the food in

Gil still peeing clear so THAT is good but will still have to
try and get him in to see Dr Small Gil's Dr's office said the same
thing Marge about calling the Fire Dept I will have to ask about that
Getting him into my 4x4  is a bit tough but I can do THAT and its
not a long walk into the office once we get there and going UP the stairs
is a bit better only have to watch he does not fall ...
Thanks for all the advise any way

Glad your weather is improving Wendy said it poured there and they had
a tree down in the park at the bottom of her street

Anyway just gave Spencer's cat her meds ,it cost him $160 yesterday
for a visit plus Rabies shot and  an antibiotic as ever since I put
the Flea liquid on them both {got the mildest for her as she is only 7lb}
she has been scratching and has these scabs all around her neck
The vet said it COULD be a reaction from that or that she could have gotten
bit by a flea and was having a reaction to it ,poor little thing as she has never had
ANYTHING like this being a house cat but when I saw them on Buddy after
seeing NONE for so long I felt I should treat them BOTH confused2
So I feel bad this has happened to her as Buddy being 18lb is fine especially
now as he does not go OUTSIDE
Anyway she has to have 1m twice a day for 5days of Prednisol which IS helping
with the itching
Spencer found out when her birthday is as he adopted her from the vets but never
really knew how OLD she was ,seems she was the last of a group of Ferrel kittens
found under a porch so it says she was 6mths old when Spencer took her
in June of 2008 so she  is 9 yrs old  
Even the Vet said though how petite she is
When I got home yesterday Spencer was being scratched to pieces trying to get
her into the pet carrier ,so after TRYING to wrap her in a towel {did not work}
I grabbed her by the scuff of her neck and lowered her back feet first into it

That is how she gets her meds as well as they do not move ....just call me SMART
OK suns out now going to be another nice day but we have the much needed
rain arriving Tuesday

Back later run run run

That's a good idea Margaret to phone the fire station.

Can I have hot chocolate Bond please.......er hang on I'll see if you're under my batch.

Carole, its always scary when something like that happens.
It just ups the anxiety level 100 points. I had a few with Peter
six years ago. If you really need help with getting Gil down
the stairs you could call your local fire station on their land line
(not 911) and ask if they will help you. Its a non emergency
call. Just explain you are alone with him and no one else you
can call and you husband is unable to help himself.
Its not like you need to call them every time but once in a while
its needed.
If they bill you for a small service like this, tell me.

Having had my sleep pattern turned upside down the other night.
I am having trouble getting back into the former pattern,
I guess it will take a few more days yet.(or nights should I say).

Ian is also concerned about the new storm coming as there are
many trees where he lives. He says his new next door neighbor has
had all his trees chopped down so that there is only a low wall between
the gardens now and Ian wants them to pay half to have a wooden
panel fence built for privacy but it seems they are always gone when
he goes round there and he is not able to afford doing it himself.
The neighbors garden is above Ian's so maybe they want the view
and sunlight not thinking about the privacy issue or maybe they
like being nosey surrender
I have some errands to run today and a couple of chores at home
Its 71f and 48% humidity and light clouds with mr. sunny peeking through.
Its going to get hot again starting tomorrow so best to get some of this stuff
done while its still cool enough to work without breaking a sweat! TTFN
