In our day you didn't live together   chattable  "Got no shame"  ......but as you say Bond that bit of paper does provide for the woman.

Oh yes please......can I have the green one.    Fancy a couple of midget gems? Or some chocs.

Yes we have said that for years that Sara moved in with Michael when her mother rented their house and moved in with her boyfriend, but for years we have said if anything happens happens to Michael things would be for her
I've just opened a bag of jelly babies

Oh yes being married helps with Tax etc.   and of course if something happened to your partner the other one has no claim on anything.   Though so many people think they have.  

No such thing as a Common Law wife.

17 is so young Carole.....your Mum could have said "And yes look at what happened to me and your Dad"

Well looks like congratulations Bond
I asked Chelsea if they had picked a date
but she said no
Not sure who will give her away as she has
always said she wanted her grandad to do it


OK a bit of news ,is EVERYONE SITTING DOWN
the guy my landlady had clean the gutters etc
and who came in and took measurements of my
counter tops that are in dire need of replacement
since having been there since before I LIVED here
BEFORE in 1987 ,just called to say she gave him the OK
to replace them and also do a back splash ,,the cabinets
are not in too bad a shape so he is going to sand them down
and refinish them and recheck on all the screws etc
and ALSO Spencer's 1/2 bath down stairs that I am ashamed
to have any one see as its in such bad shape is ALSO
going to get a face lift and a new sink/vanity as right now
there is a sink that is sitting on legs my son had to make
no storage underneath obviously
He was laughing when I said I was in shock and had he felt Angie's
forehead ,anyway he is coming by with some samples tomorrow
for me to pick out Shocked I cannot believe she OK'd it

OK drinks please Bond
Oh was anyone watching the spurs game it was POURING
and blowing a gale in the first 1/2 ,rain has just now stopped

Hi, yes it's all down to them and they won't get talked into anything by any body
I think i/we got talked into it as it was the thing to do
after being engaged the next thing was marriage
Fancy a hot chocolate

That's like Hannah (Matt's sister) her and Andy had lived together for 5 years and then they got engaged 3 years ago but no sign of a marriage.....Becky (Matt's other sister) and Jamie who have just had the baby have lived together for 3 years, though before then they'd lived together off and on for nearly 7 years.....Shirley says she's given up the idea of being the mother of the bride. Well as long as they're happy that's what I say.

Good evening all, yes I do still run up the stairs but walk down, mrsb has been going up on all fours with her bad hip
That's how I realised I had heart trouble. My office was on the second floor of the college and I aways ran up the stairs then found I had to stop at the top to take a breath before going in the office, the n when my boss got a office on the top floor I Had to stop half way for a breather but I thought it was my lungs not my heart
Michaels Messaged me this afternoon with a photo he and Sara have got engaged on the he beach in Cornwall arrrrr

.its almost like I am laying on a nerve

Love that photo Carole.

You can always go up and down the stairs a number of times Bond.    maybe not.

I had the last of the Christmas cake yesterday.....sorry Carole.......still got some mince pies & Christmas puddings  bounce

Been to Fosse Park.....David got himself a zip up summer jacket and we bought a sympathy card for Julia.        Just before we went out Bev phoned.....she must have had time on her hands because I couldn't get her off the telephone   ....she did ask me to phone her back because she was calling from her mobile phone....so I did and though I said "We are going out in a minute or two.....she went on and on & on,    Mad

Nearly finished my book.....

The stairs in the house provide a good work out in bad weather.
(I don't have any in my house as it is a Bungalow !)

There are public stairs across the street to the upper street that has
two small landings so I could start small and work upwards.
There is a good 3/4 of a mile walk along that street and back to my house
encompassing a short steep down hill and a long up hill walk at an
easier climb.
I could do it the other way round and start on my street and walk
down the long hill and up the short steep hill and back to the stairs and come
down them. I am sure I would need to nap after doing the whole walk
after all this time. easychair

Its partly sunny here at 9:30am and 56f, it is expected to go to a high of 66f
today. The mist is still hanging about, visibility is about half a mile this morning.
Went easy on the Mimosa's(small flutes)
Seems its the same bug here Bond, I have a few friends here who have it also.
I am taking a couple of Hall's vitamin C and Zinc lozenges a day to help bump
up my immune system along with my usual multi vitamin pill.
I think as long as I stay out of the Mall and carry some antiseptic hand wipes
in my bag I can stay out of trouble. Luckily the local supermarket offers hand
wipes at both of their doors so customers get to not only wipe their hands but
the cart handles as well!

On the Queen Mary 2 we were offered antiseptic wipes on entering the
large dining room which would be a good idea as there are many
restaurants here who show an A rating for food prep and general hygiene
but have so many customers who should be at home, coughing into their
bare hands and touching tables and chairs and doors and such.
In a cold climate it does kill some of the germs but here in a moderate
climate they multiply a lot quicker.
Sometimes wish we could all go back to wearing white gloves when we go out!
One of my friends daughters had to go to the emergency room as she
could not stop coughing and got dehydrated and the over the counter meds
were not working and this is NOT the Flu!
We have not reached the peak of the Flu season here on the West Coast yet.
That is to come.
Well, I must get some work done today as the festivities are over for now.
TTFN

Bright as brass buttons @ Bond funnytvprog
that was back when I FELT GOOOOD ...well
almost as it was in 1989 that I had my ruptured
disc removed ,after that I lost a LOT of my momentum
if you know what I mean

That is where my last cold went last winter
from a COLD IN DA DOSE ,onto my chest so
I sounded like a dog BARKING ,that was what took
me so long to clear up as I could not shake it

OH boy our Wendy will be upset as she said yesterday
it had done nothing but and was windy in Plymouth
the last few days so that the park where they walk Henry was
all MUDDY
Seems Derek took Henry with him to Cornwall today to see
his mom ,guess Wendy might be working/volunteering
in the Red Cross store today as she DOES love the company
and serving the public

Sunny here now still cold but actually does not FEEL THAT bad
but that is whats deceiving ,my cell phone is saying proper temp
is up to 21f but only feels like 10f

Gil watching with one eye  Crystal Palace vs MC match of the week
waiting on Swansea vs Spurs to start at 2pm

Just had a salad for my lunch ,making store bought meat loaf patties
with rice and a veg for later
Spencer should be home as well he says and should be staying home
tonight

I shall be back ...like your silhouettes Bond

Where's Vicky today ?
Marge will be confused1  her first at 915am I am sure

Good afternoon Carole, you two look as bright as brass buttons
The weather here is horrible cold wet and windy so I've abandoned my walk into town
Yhats about a three mile round trip so that's better than a tread mill and end up like a hamster, our eldest John has one and all the weights and pull up push down things
Mrsb is easychair doped up with night nurse and tablets, it's coming out in a horrible cough now like a forty a day man or woman why do big smokers have to be men?
So anyway I've sat in today doing victorian black and white pictures for the next play Gas light
cake or the last of the mince pies
Coffee tea and L&LS

Me {45} and Tracie {27} before we moved to this house
in 1987 this was taken just before she drove
herself with her cat to Florida ,she was going to live
and work with some friends down there but it did
not work out so she returned to Connecticut after less
than a year ,then of course she met her ex husband
and got pregnant having David in 1989
She has ALWAYS  been drawn to Florida

 I am fed up with hearing of all these
freezing temps .morning Bond ...
Right now our proper temp with out the wind chill
is 14f {-10c} at 545am ,had to let the hot water
in the bathtub drip all night ,so that will be running
the electric bill up but what can you do  confused2
What they are watching CLOSELY is a storm developing
for Thursday that right now the    are predicting
we could get any where from 1 to 4" of snow ,BUT all that
storm has to do is drift about 50miles closer and those numbers
could treble ,also Saturday and Sunday will be the worse
yet temp wise with Sunday only seeing a HIGH of 7f {-13c}
all day
The good news is the weatherman is saying we should see a "WARM"
up next week  

Blaine returns to work today so his vacation is over ...
How's Mrs B today Bond ,and you could maybe invest in a tread mill
or a exercise bike  scooter1 set up somewhere for all that "food"
and    bondchamps you have been    Bond
 

Anyway its a GOOD MORNING LADIES I shall return  run  run  run

BTW Lotto fever again Mega money tonight is up to $300 mil
and tomorrow Power Ball is right now at $440 mil ...I would be
happy with ONE mil  

Latest temp reading for Bridgeport is 1f we are going DOWN

phew well someone must like me
as the water started gushing out at 430pm
Called Spencer and he said he was just about
ready to come back over to see what he could do
more,but said when the landlady had the plumber
here earlier in the year as the drain was leaking
from the bath tub into the front garden ,she should
have told him to lag  the pipes as he said he could
not believe they had built the house like they did so
all he did was shove insulation into the cavity ,which I guess
helped a little till we went way below zero
I have a feeling if I remember right that he said in order
to lag the pipes the front siding would have to come off
the house otherwise I think HE would have done it then

Any way Vicky you can stop holding your nose now as I
took a shower

Sleep tight xx

That's not good Carole...... talktohand  I won't ask if your Landlady can do something.
THOUGH if your pipes burst THEN she'd have to cough up and fix them so she should do something NOW.     I could pick that woman up by the ankles and shake her....hope she's wearing her BIG knickers.    Shocked  GOT IT she could used a couple of pairs of her knickers..

Thought McMafia would have been up your street Bond, it was on tonight, 2nd part on tomorrow......it was good, though I didn't think I'd enjoy it.    

Right night time.......speak tomorrow.

As always Marge well said
Well guess the "Bourne " "LUCK"
is still around ,as after Barbara came
and was walking Gil into the bathroom
for his shower  I went ahead to turn on the
water for her ,............NO HOT WATER the pipes
were FROZEN ,have hot water in the bathroom sink
but as I think I mentioned the bathtub and its pipes
sit out on a ledge over the front of the house
So she ended up giving him a bed bath ,and I will
have to forgo  MINE tonight and have a wash down
Spencer has this large industrial heater  looks like
a bullet ,that he put on as I called him telling him he
had better shower at Carmen's ,then he said we needed
a heat gun so gave him the $$ to go get one and he has it aimed
at the hole where the pipes run outside ,but nothing yet
after the bullet heater ran out of Kerosene, but it is not helping
that the temp is only 17f proper temp but 4f with the wind chill
so until the temps warm up a bit I am up the river with out a paddle
confused2 headbanger headbanger
Hope Mrs B feels better Bond .best to stay in if she is feeling rough

Sorry for being late on Parade but we Californians have a
tradition here of having a college football bowl game on
new years day with a parade of floats decorated with all
natural material starting off the day in Pasadena.
Its the Rose Parade. Although the floats are covered in
ground pepper, seeds, petals and all manor of flowers
and plants it must have roses on it too.

Our City of Torrance float won the Mayors trophy for a
depiction of our coastal marsh which once ran up and down
the California coast but which is slowly disappearing.
This is the 99th year of having the parade and it has grown
into an event that is shown all over the world now.

I hope we all have year filled with joy and laughter, boy,
do we need it!
2017 was filled with so many disasters covering so many parts
of the United States. (our Ventura fire is now the largest in recorded
history in this State. It is still burning but it is in wilderness now.)

I stayed up to see the New Year in and drank a toast with Mimosa's
I also started my day with one this morning.
Found a nice sparkling white wine instead of Champagne as the price
goes up for New Years. I think they over fizz the Champagne nowerdays.

It will be 2years on the 17th since Peter passed away and I still
love and miss him so much. I feel that he put up a very brave fight
to live as long as he did and it gives me courage to do the same.
I am trying to celebrate his living not his death.
Our life together was a magnificent adventure even with all the ups and
downs we had. He always said "Stick with me and I will give you the world"
I thought he was having me on but I have seen and done so much that I
never ever thought I would.
Its the start of a new year, fresh with hope that we can survive all the
things we cannot control and have the courage to overcome and change
what we can. Happy New Year to you all !!!

Susan & Matt back from Cornwall.......though it rained last night, they had a lovely time in the hotel .....and a great time today.

Watched a great film this afternoon starring Pauline Collins & her husband John Alderton was also in it.....it was about a widow (Pauline Collins) put into a rest home by her manipulative son and daughter-in-law after the death of her bullying husband. after anger turns to action as the medication is discarded and she discovers her mettle, as do the other oldies when they stage a rebellion....it was funny. And the oldies win. "Mrs Caldicot's Cabbage War"

Hope Mrs B soon picks up.

Al I can say besides HAPPY NEW YEAR
is ITS BLUDDY FREEZING ,the thermostat was only registering
64f up here when I got up at 530am and I have it set at 72f
That's because OUTSIDE is only a BALMY -10f -23c
All I can say is its a GOOD job we got OK'd for oil
as at this rate we will be running out
They say last night in New York's Time Square was the
coldest New Years since 1909

They have to be showing stats on TV saying here in Bridgeport
we are 2% above so far this year for SNOW
I heard Blaine creeping in at 1am

Think I am going to get Spencer to bring up the portable
heater I brought over from my old place to take the nip off the air
as this is RIDICULOUS Mad

Well better get going as Barbara will be here at 9am

First New Years baby has been born in Connecticut a little girl exactly
at MIDNIGHT
Saw the fireworks just now in London and some other cities across
the world

PEACE to us ALL happiness and most of ALL HEALTH

Back later run

We always used to keep our decorations up until the 6th January until this time.....I just felt we should take them down, and for some reason David must have felt the same because he mentioned it and I agreed, much to his amazement.   And then we heard about Tony dying that morning,        

 telephone  tonight her friend Cynthia's daughter has just had a book published, it's about Cornish Witches   sounds good.   I'm going to buy it.   Helen Norwood I think she said....anyway it's on Amazon as well.    interesting......

We went to M&S and David bought Benjie a t-shirt in the sale, I liked it so he got one for me as well.   we then we went to John Lewis's and got some flute glasses for the next time the families all together, we were saying at Christmas we needed some, those we've got are a mis-match, so now we've got 8 which match. cheers  we also got a baking tray.

Of course we'll be celebrating the New Year in with a   /      us get tipsy Carole.   funnytvprog

Oh it's in Cornwall ......oh it's Marazion Bond.

Back later......
