Hello Vicky glad you had a nice time then
but DADDY LONG LEGS talktohand
NO NO NO I would not take a bath for ages
when growing up after there was one had come
up the drain pipe and was sitting in the bath
in Purcell RD HATE them even
though I know they are HARMLESS:x Mad

Dr was very pleased with me this morning
after being up where I had ballooned to in October
I have stayed down where I was last time I saw her
and my Diabetic numbers are good so I do not
need the meds any more ,going back in September
as I am hoping to have dropped down even further
and as long as my husband does not get to bad with his moods
that sets me off either not eating or eating what I should NOT
be ...I will do it

So Mr Bourne watching the Iceland game
and I shall return

Yes that's what I said earlier it was the musical "Guys N Dolls"  Carole......brilliant.    I doubt you ever not have to wear a jacket or coat Bond.....and have a blanket.         Susan goes to them most years.....though she goes later on in the year.

We had daddy long legs flying about Carole but nothing that bit.

Back later off out.

Morning Bond hope the Dr's office
is good news ....
Waking up to warm temps with some clouds
& sunny today temps in the 70's ,but the weekend
is looking to be wet on and off and for the MANY
families having graduation parties this will not be good
so the weatherman is advising go with PLAN B for
an inside celebration ....

Glad you enjoyed your outdoor play then Vicky
was it also Guys N Dolls YOU saw then ?
We also in both Stratford and Bridgeport host
such happenings during the summer ,all good
except for the "BUGS" if you guys are cool enough
to need a blanket guess there will be none ,not is
the case here .....what ever it is is chewing me up slowly
and even though it LOOKS like poison Ivy I have not
been near ANY this year so it HAS to be a BUG headbanger

Linda telephone  me last night as they leave today for Greece
she has promised we will have out get together when she
comes home ,good to have a funnytvprog ,as just
telling her a few things that had happened yesterday had her
chuckling ,like when I got back from the bank having left
Spencer with his Dad what I found when I returned
him and Gil eating a Klondike Neapolitan bar and Spencer
saying Moms going to KILL US as Gil had chocolate
ice cream ALL down his WHITE shirt nono  one NEVER
gives him anything to eat or drink these days with out some
form of a bib/coverup in front of him
Ah well they had fun I guess ...

OK so will say good morning Marge ,Vicky
happy Marge your trying to advise Jim but staying
neutral ,that is going to be a rocky road back if
he can make it with what you said he has been through
Guess we never know what makes a person turn to drugs
or drink to deaden their memories/hurts ,but I am beginning
to understand TRULY I AM at times ,but I am too much
of a chicken to go that route ,I just worry myself
to death  confused2

OK must go as I want to go to the  shopper  store
before my Dr's appointment as the  catmilkbowl  need more
num num's that cannot wait until Saturday or Sunday when I go to
get the weekly stores in

Guess we will be watching MORE FIFA  headball  today  Rolling Eyes

Back later have a great day people  run  run  run  run

Another overcast sky locally this morning
with a bit of sea mist thrown in for good measure.

We have "Shakespeare in the park" events locally
during the summer months. Peter and I went to several
but he had a hard time sitting in a low chair for a couple
of hours. I was imagining how the Bard performed his
plays, out of doors with minimum props as they traveled
around Warwickshire .

I have been Texting Jim once a day now and I agreed to
keep it neutral and just give him some encouragement
to believe in himself and that past mistakes (even if they
are huge) do not have to define us all our whole lives.
I don't know much about his past, only a broad outline
but I can fill in some gaps by what I do know.

He was abused by his birth parents and put in foster care.
He was used to get money from the state and not taken
care of so he ran away at 15. I don't know the rest of the
story, I only know that he met Melanie through e-harmony
dating site. I know he was involved with a motorcycle group
for some of his teen and 20s (I cannot say gang as I don't
know if that's true or not).
I would take a guess that he is still suffering from a form of
PTSD even after all these years. He is a veteran, he served
on a submarine at some point. so might be eligible for treatment
at a Veterans Administration facility.
He needs to be at peace with his past before he can be ready to
recover from his addiction.

Nice Fish and Chip supper at a little hole in the wall place called
Fish Bonz. We sat out at a table on their patio enjoying the setting
sunny while we ate and goofed off.
They do mostly all types of fish dishes, nothing fancy but fresh and tasty.
They do string fried potatoes with a seasoning on them, a side order
of Cole Slaw and three big pieces of fresh fish in a light crispy batter.
Two of our group opted for the salmon steak with rice.
Next week its back to the Olive Garden again by request.
(I think one of the ladies has a discount coupon for one of their
desserts).Its a nice way to spend a couple of hours.

Its back to work this morning. I want to vac the leaves out of
BR, get his gas tank filled and take him to the car wash.
He is just dusty so regular wash and wax will do.
Will take care of BB tomorrow.
Gardeners were here yesterday and re adjusted my sprinkler
system as the grass out front is drying out a little too quickly.
Its now 3 time a week for about four minutes each station
( I have 4). one being the back yard, not to water the artificial
grass but the plants in the beds.
I am gradually getting my plan for the back garden in some kind
of shape in my mind but I am sure it will be adjusted along the way
before it is finished. Its not going to be a massive flower garden but
kind of beachy and casual with a few baskets of flowers for a pop
of color. That's where the metal sculptors come in.
Hi Ho,Hi Ho, its off to work I go ladies and gent. TTFN

Yes it's Kilworth Bond......so you're going to see "Guys and Dolls" as well.

Do you need me to listen to your lines?    I'll stand at the back to make sure everyone can hear you.

Morning Bond , tired could easily have stayed
Sleep this morning
Going to be another hot sunny day ,looks like
we got a brief shower during the over night
hours they said the shoreline might ,and that tonight
it would be inlands turn good for the gardens at least
but we could do with a SOAKING right now

So you maybe doing double duty at LEading players @ Bond
whats it going to be ,Captain of the Guard ?

Sounds like your weather will stay nice for Vicky's outing
then ,and yes well done to Rob

I see Trump did something he said he COULD NOT do at last,
made an executive order to stop separating the children from
'parents who cross the border illegally,he speaks out BOTH sides
of his MOUTH {look at North Korea} Rolling Eyes then throws out the
word COMPASSION he has no COMPASSION only when the
& world started getting on his case did he think he had better do
something lest it tarnish his image

Anyway stuck in again today as DeDe will only wash dress and get Gil up
this morning will not be here long enough for me to go anywhere....
So will check in later on maybe someone will have checked in

HAVE A GREAT DAY FOLKS
run run run run

Its about the poem written in stone on the base
it goes something like this "Give me you tired
huddled masses yearning to be free".
Trump has been totally condemned for
separating families at the border including babies.
The parents are then deported but the USA keeps
the children in camps and I have not heard if
any have been united with their parents yet.
He is trying to cover his butt this morning by signing
something to stop the practice but you cannot take back
something so evil.

We have to deal with this idiot for another 2 and a half years!
This country was made rich on the backs of all the immigrants
who came here to work and look after their families which
they could not in their own countries.
They came not speaking the language and with no money
and just the clothes on their backs but willing to do any job
just to put a crust on the table.
During the mess with Iran (when they kicked the Shah out)
many middle class and upper class Iranians ran for their lives and came
to America. They were Drs., Lawyers and teachers but were not
allowed to practice their professions here.(they were made to re qualify)
So families sold any family jewels they had and pooled the money to
invest in gas stations and small grocery stores and they pooled the money
by living in crowded small apartments.
My local gas station was run by 4 brothers who ran to my car when they saw
my GB sign and were so glad to see someone who did not look down on them
as peasants. They were taken in because anyone who was too "westernized"
were being slaughtered in Iran. This included Professors and clerics who
ran the Universities.
They came as refugees and over time regained their original careers.
they are among the best investments this country has ever had.
Same with the Vietnam refugees.
We, in this state could not have our crops picked, our hotel beds made
or have hospitals staffed with LVN (Licensed Vocational Nurses).
to handle all the dirty work the RNs won't do anymore if not for all the
foreign labor available.
Sorry to get on my soapbox again but California seems to be top
of Trumps list of States he would like to bankrupt by legislation!
He seems to have blanked out that his mother was poor girl from
Scotland who had ideas about marrying a millionaire and found herself
one. End of rant!
Oh, I long for July to arrive so we can get out of this weather pattern we
are in. Its just too darn humid!

Went and mailed my gardeners bill and sent off the birthday card to Vince
yesterday and took a look round the garden department at OSH hard ware.
They still have a selection of metal garden sculptures like the gnome
I bought, there is another one with a blue hat and some wading birds
which are quite beautiful too. There is a tall pink flamingo which
has a small cooler set in his back. I need to go and see what Armstrong
Nurseries has left after Fathers day.
I have also seen two metal cactuses which would fit in my landscape.

I am sorry but I am determined to spend some of my tax return before it
gets gobbled up elsewhere. (I had to stop Ian transferring some of it in
to another account for general expenses)
Its MY B of A account so Momma is putting down her foot!
TTFN

Oh dear does that mean you'll have to wait until the weekend before you have help?

Yes he turned up with 2 boxes......I've to still nab next doors son Harry, he loves his music so it'll be TWO CD's for him, last one and this.   Every time I bump into him, him in his car going off somewhere or just disappearing into the house  talktohand  I'll get him one day.   I'll be sending off to Jan tomorrow, and of course  wants one.....and my hairdresser and Debby the receptionist.......watch out Bev.   and of course we'll take "some" down to Susan's.  

Took  to The Woodlands......it's a good job because I wouldn't have been happy if I'd taken her to "The Heart of the Country" and have a meal at "The Barn" or even to "Whitemoors"  because when we got to The Woodlands she decided she wasn't hungry so she'd just have a portion of chips.....she couldn't wait to look around "Peacocks"  bought herself a bag.   Oh well it was supposed to be her birthday meal.....I'm putting some money into her card, she wants some "Designer" sunglasses   "Well you were going to buy me that perfume"  GULP!!!!

Trouble is Trumps cares not a jot to what people think of him. confused2

First off found out where Barb was ,was in the ER till 5am
seems she had her back go and they gave her a strong pain med
and said it would knock her out ,,guess it did and her daughter
was SUPPOSED to call the agency and did not ...
she hopes to be back next week ,think Gil is not happy as he
was hoping she was all DONE ,he just does not like her

Next Marge went on FB saying quick cover up the Statue of Liberty
as it is now one of Trumps "false truths" confused2
Having missed the news i do not know what THAT is all about
so will have to wait till she posts

What an IDIOT that man is run run run

Well this is great Barb has not showed
up and I cannot reach her on her cell phone
If the bus is late she normally texts or calls me
All the calls are going into her V'mail so have
no idea whats gone wrong
Bit worried as had this been my hairdressers
day I would be PISSED,bad enough that I have a
Dr's appointment Friday ,but Blaine will be home
so he can listen for his Dad while I go but have no idea
what I would have done had he been working .....
Anyway have a new girl coming Sat/Sun so stay tuned
as I may have lost Barb ,she has MANY problems
besides not having any power at her flat for over 12 days

Morning Vicky ....I got cherries and seedless
green grapes and Clementines this week
Gil has a clementine every evening with a
couple of Bickies and his last
Have to limit the grapes as it starts his Gout
off if he has too many as THEY used to be his
night time snack

Cloudy now but as I said no rain until much later
and starting to warm up should be around 80f
by days end about normal for this time of the year

talktohand don't get me started on Trump taking the
children away after the immigrants cross the border
its DISGUSTING and inhumane ,then of course you
get them who say "well if the parents did not cross
illegally this would not happen" confused2
Plus Trump is saying its the LAW ,,,,ITS NOT ,its HIS LAW

Every ex presidents wife from President Carter to Obama
have come out and said something about it headbanger

I saw Rob had his CD's delivered told him to ask you to store
some as he said he needed a bigger house lol ,but he said
YOU were his biggest salesperson you should
ask for a commission $$$

Anyway Barb will be here in about 5mins ,get to hear her latest
saga of having no power still ...I could not put up with THAT

Back later

Hi Gang.

Yes Melanie comes first, she's done so well she certainly doesn't want to get pulled down by Jim's problems.    She's been through enough.

Lovely school photo Carole.

Been doing the food shopper  this morning.......then Rob popped round with his new CD, he's on the radio tonight.....playing 4 songs live and then doing an interview.

We're taking  out for a birthday meal.......she's been hinting.

It's certainly warm out there.

Talking about Trump what's this with the kids removed from their parents and put into cages?         He's supposed to be coming to England in 3 weeks......if this goes on they'll be such a protest against him.

Oh Benjie makes us laugh the way he stands with one paw up and this look on his face as though he's thinking.

♪ He'll be hoover round the corner
when he hoover ♪ YEE HAAA
Morning Bond ....sorry I am wired this morning
Gil woke me at 330am to go wee and have not been
able to fall back to sleep till I normally get up at 5am
so up I got ,plus SOMETHING bit me AGAIN in between
my pinky finger and its DRIVING ME itching
Its this little fly/bug what ever that took CHUNKS out of
me in particular back in 1967 you could hardly put a pin prick
between the bites I was smothered
Dr said they liked my blood
gotten less as the years go by but one still seems to find me headbanger
you feel like you could scratch your SKIN OFF
Starting off a bit cooler this morning 62f right now at 5am
no sign of any till possibly later tonight and we NEED
some right now everything is so dry ...

I also see the pound WAY down today the lowest its been in ages
$1.31 ,of course Trump is not helping with all these tariffs he is imposing
as the stock market is concerned they say

Anyway its HUMP DAY again ,have to see Fran AGAIN next Wednesday
as my normal 4th weekly appointment falls on July 4th and she will be closed
for the holiday ,so would rather go earlier than later ....
So all that is left to say IS

GOOD MORNING LADIES and GENTS and I shall be back sometime
run run run run

Morning slug a lug funnytvprog ....
I cannot sleep with out a fan on even in winter
and it looks like I have made Gil the same way as
last night even though I had both the stand up fan
and the over head one on he WANTED the A/C on
mind you only let that run until he fell to sleep then
turned it off as I dread seeing the electric bill once we start
using the A/C and there is no way I cannot with us sitting here
all day never mind at night ,,,

Its a worry I know with Jim I guess in her heart she is hoping he turns
the corner so they can be back together ,but it could also go
the other way right ,and she does not need to be dragged down
since she has gotten where she is now

Good to hear your getting your appetite back Vicky
and yes Benjie does look like a little seal ,but I find pets
tend to lay like that while contemplating the world around them lol!

Just watching Japan beat Columbia headball
Japan won 2-1 and Columbia had a player sent off

The agency just called who provide Barb to us ,as Hospice and the
State agency who she works for have been pushing me to get MORE
help with Gil saying they are worried about ME confused2
So I gave in and have a new girl coming on Saturday and Sunday
mornings from 9 to 11am only to get him washed up dressed and
into the living room as right now I leave him in bed while I go to the shopper
then have to get him ready when I get home

Sorry had to leave this as Spencer just came over
still playing "maintenance man" for Carmen's Landlord ,he just made
12 new mesh screens and repaired 10 on the 6 flats besides other work
he has Spencer doing ,and Spencer is only charging him $7.50 for the repaired
ones and $10 for the new ones {he found out from my old landlord who owns
a glass repair store that he charges $15 each so this guy is getting a bargain}

Anyway we have eaten Gil now watching Poland vs Senegal
Back later run run

tired
As usual I woke up at 3 something feeling cold
and needing to visit the littlest room.
It took sometime to warm up enough to fall
asleep again so it was past 9 when I finally
woke up this morning.
I swear its the humidity I need a fan on
and no covers to fall asleep in the first place
then wake up cold and turn the fan off and
put on a dressing gown to warm up again
to fall back to sleep.
Its not hot enough for the portable A/C unit
but it does have a dehumidifier on it.
I just do better when the humidity is lower.

Got a call from Melanie telling me she has places
the order of protection into the hands of the local
Sheriffs department and they will serve Jim in a
day or so. He has been texting Melanie and he
keeps texting her when she won't answer back.
He does know about the order of protection as she
did tell him about that in advance.

He even sent me a short message on my phone
yesterday. I have to set him straight that I cannot
act as a go between for him, I have to keep a
neutral stance until the hearing.
He is at the pitiful stage, very remorseful but I
don't think he understands yet that things could not
go on as they were.
He has good intentions when he gets clean but is
incapable of keeping it up.
Its toxic for Melanie to live like that.

Her sponsor is giving her work to do on co-dependency
as she is going way out of her depth to get Jim clean.
He is way past that, he needs long term treatment.
(I did tell her that at Xmas)
The Sober living place has him working at a thrift
shop stocking shelves and doing inventory.

Its very rare we get thunder or lightning here but
we can have strikes in the sea which spreads out
into the wet sand so standing on the beach can
be very dangerous.
From my den I have a front seat watching the sky
for miles around when we have a storm.

Have to write a check this morning for the gardening
service and mail it. Also, its Vincent's birthday on
the 23rd so must get a card in the mail for him
today. Also need to get BR fueled up. he still has
half a tank full but the last half seems to disappear
quicker than the first!

You have to start standing up for yourself Bond......it's your health and if you think something isn't right than say so.      

Yes I'm sure lowering my tablets as helped Carole.

After knowing how Benjie is with fireworks I really thought the big storm, thunder & lightening would have him shaking but no that didn't worry him.  confused2

Went to Fosse Park to M&S, David took a pair of trainers back to them, he'd bought them in April and the heel was coming away from the sole .....got our money back no problem.   Nipped in and had nibbles, jacket potato & salad.....and ate it all.  

Oh it'll all be on  Carole but hospitals/doctors just don't seem to read it  confused2  as Bond says one dept just doesn't seem to know (not looking at the records on the ) what any one dept is doing.  

Oh I've almost finished my book......Mmm it's so so.

New avatar is Benjie....he always reminds me of a seal pup when he lies like this.

dogs are funny Vicky
I remember Saba never bothered when we had a
weather storm ,in fact he would move the drapes
with his nose {I would have pulled them over ,habit
from being brought up to CLOSE them and cover the mirrors
as well should the LIGHTENING find its way in and STRIKE them}
and he would watch the flashes and hear the rumbles
but after the radio disc jockey neighbor had that huge
FIREWORK party and was letting M80's off just as I had taken
him out to do his business he would cower in a corner as big as
he was and SHAKE .....

Good girl almost eating your din din ,hows the lowering of the pills
going ?

Bond that is RIDICULOUS all those people should be in the "loop"
knowing what you take etc and also what you have been doing
as we do here on the
Give um HELL lad

Well Aid should be here in a few minutes so better away
I took a Antihistamine as something BIT me on the inside
of my finger and ITS ITCHING me to death and I find this stops
it but also makes me very DOPEY and I could just fall right to Sleep
Be back tired tired

The game was boring though, Portugal v Spain was a better, more interesting game.

I ate nearly all my dinner Carole. had cornflakes this morning, per usual.....will be off out later so will have a nibble.

Benjie never bothered about our big storm the other month even when he was out in it, the second time we had the bad storm, he never bothered BUT he hates fireworks and yet just never turned a hair when we were having the loud bangs....thunder & lightening. Strange doggy.

Susan & Matt are at Ascot today.

Morning Bond ,well I see your
off with your shovel so watch how
you go then
Starting off very SOUPY here
75f but we have a 72% dew point NOT
NICE ,but they say this will be all blown
away later as a cold front comes down
over us lowering the humidity level into
the 50's range so will be FEELING nice

We did get a thunder storm last night just
as Blaine got home around 8pm it scared catmilkbowl
as he retreated down onto the stairs and was laying along
one of them in the dark
Big cat scared of the thunder and lightening funnytvprog
as here was Tabitha running around like nothing
So carried Buddy into our room and he slept on the bed
for a few hours ...

Gil has gone back wards again as he is acting like what I call
"sluggish" doing stupid things he would not normally confused2

Hard to explain unless you saw it ,I refer to it as when the
Corticobasil part in his brain that is killing off his brain cells
HITS a CRACK ,like a broken record then when it moves
off that part he starts to act more like he should confused2

Anyway hope the ladies will be in later I cannot go far as DeDe
is the only one coming so cannot go out like I can when Barb is here.
I do need a tomato ring though as I bought one plant last week
and put it in a large pot on the deck it was about 15 " tall but now
stands over 2ft so the support I had here is too low and I have flowers
on it already
They are the only things I grow besides

So its GOOD MORNING FOLKS
be back and have a great day run run run

2-1 against Tunisia headball
WTG Harry Kane

Hello Marge funny how we all get attached
to certain things @

Tracie's old landlady here in CT when
David was first born suggested contacting
one of the TV stations that try to help people
out with problems ,so shot off an email but not
sure if they can do any thing to get it moving confused2
worth a try I guess

OK tea kettle on low Vicky don't let it boil dry
did you finish ALL your dinner, Gil did today
BTW where's the hired help has he turned in his pinny mrbond bondchamps

Oh that looked like a great line up
from the advertisements that have
been showing on TV
Glad you enjoyed yourself Vicky
Oh Linda and I have plans one day to
travel Vicky funnytvprog

So Bond your thinking you DID a
but did not @ ,,umm what was IN THOSE
SWEETIES funnytvprog

Well my Aid STILL has no power ,so had to take
her dog to a "male friends" house as when she
got home yesterday her dog was wringing wet
panting so heavy and she has a heart condition
that Barb has to give her meds for ...
Her daughter just got back from OZ and wanted
to stay with her Mom ,so told her dad {Barb's Ex}
about it ,Barb and him do not get on ,but he contacted
the housing authority and they were going to shut him down
as seems HE has had power from SOMEWHERE in his office
on the first floor where as Barb and the 3rd floor tenant have
none confused2

Gil had therapy today on his right arm and his neck it seems
to be loosening up his muscles somewhat with the stretching she does
with him ,so at least he is not in as much pain as the tighter
they get the more he hurts

I have just put a steak in my Air fryer and will make some Mac N Cheese
or something to go with it as its way to HOT to eat

We are at 85f right now but feels much hotter as a brilliant sunny
and not a cloud in the sky ,could get a thunder storm around 4pm

I shall return later

Yes, that photo of Peter and I and
the nippers was blast from the past.
I never know what they will come
up with next.
That "Jungle Jim" hat with its fake
leopard skin hat band he wore
until I banned it!
He then bought a cheap Panama
hat which was still in the cloak
closet when he passed away.
They were like old friends he was
so attached to them.
I did treat him to a REAL Panama
hat from a hat shop in Long Beach
to wear at the St. Georges Functions.
I could not see him in a boater!

Sorry I missed Malc's birthday yesterday,
Happy Belated Birthday Malc!


Weather is on the change again here, It cannot
make up its mind at the moment. Partly sunny or
partly cloudy but further inland its a different story.
Its getting hot again for them.

Have to go shopping for more cat food today, I am
on my last can at the next feeding which will be
AFTER the England game!

I always get the feeling that if big government keeps
you waiting long enough they think you will give up.
Like applying for Disability from SS.
Melanie's Crohns is on the list of diseases that should
be automatically accepted but every time she applied
they said she looked too healthy to be disabled!
It took three years to get the measly amount she
gets now, just a shade over $900 a month.
(this is one of the most expensive states to live in)
At least she could handle a part time job now and
not be penalized. Of course she needs Jims disability
to make it each month so don't know what will happen
if they split up.
Do NOT want to go there yet!

Hang in there Carole, do you have an ELDER Law practice
in your state? Or somewhere you could get Free advice from?
The state bar association usually has an advice connection or
1-800 number to call.
Right now all they are doing is passing the buck!
There are probably a lot of chits with complaints like yours
sitting on someone's desk that are being ignored.
WE pay their salary and THEY are supposed to be working for US!
I find that there is always a way around the maze if you have help.
I think its time for the BIG
TTFN

WHAT ....no Bond this morning confused2
Hope he did not over indulge yesterday with all those
sweeties nono

Going to be MURDER today with the temps climbing
into the 90's but with the humidity will be FEELING
like its in the 100's and possible THUNDER
Storms popping up later as is normally the case when
the atmosphere gets too hot ....

Talking of that I see now Japan has had another Earth quake
over night and a Volcano in Ecuador is sprouting Lava
and somewhere else ,like Marge said that "ring of fire"
is really active ,saw in Michigan here roads washed away
with bad flooding THEY have had ,it seems the whole
World is going CRAZY
I can hear the sooth Sayers now cheers THE END IS NEAR cheers

OK so I am feeling for my Aid as she STILL has no electricity
{her landlord had solar panels installed they were not right or something
and the Power Company SHUT OFF the power,I told her to call the Board
of health as SOMEONE has to be able to do SOMETHING ,she has
one cable from the ONE Generator he has put on for THREE FLOORS
so they have ONE cable EACH floor so she has her fridgefood
plugged into it ,has no hot water for shower cannot cook or put a fan
on or the small A.C. I sent for and she paid me back so that her little
dog will be comfortable while she is at work confused2

She called Legal Aid and all the Landlord says is its going to be
turned on tomorrow tomorrow and tomorrow never comes
even with the windows open today it will be MURDER in her flat

Good night last night at least it was quiet Gil waking me up once
to go waitingloo
So all that is left to say is

GOOD MORNING FOLKS BOND VICKY MARGE SIR G where ever you are
I shall be back later run run run
on low

Had a good time, Susan took her Dad and me out for a meal at the little Palmers, we'd been sitting down for around 15 minutes  and Susan got a text message from Rachael "I know where you are" and in she walked with Lee  (husband) and her Mum....Rachael's Dad died a couple of years ago, just before she got married.      

Hope Bond & Gil had a good Fathers Day.  and a Happy Birthday to Malc.

Waiting for Susan to  telephone  to say she's home.

Yes Carole that's Benjie.

Stay strong Melanie.

Thanks Marge Gil said thanks as
our other granddaughter Brittany was
just here to pick her Dad up taking him out
to eat for fathers day  its the tradition

Blaine up and also gone probably down the park
where he plays domino's with a crowd down there
that sit under the trees catching the breeze

Spencer said should have taken his Dad out today
but will more than likely do it next week instead

Gil is OK as Tracie called him as well earlier
I made him a sausage
patty and egg sarnie for breakfast ,and just "pulsed"
some lobster meat for seafood salad in the week

I wished Malc a  61st on Maria's FB page
as today is his day ....

Now you watch what your doing Missy not too many drinky poos
just have fun ,saw the great picture Melanie put on FB of you guys
when the kids were little such BLONDIE"S ,and Jim had made a comment
sounds like he is trying to get in someones good graces

Back later

Happy Fathers day Bond and Gil. bondchamps

Only one word for the weather here, changeable.
Its overcast and a little cooler and the humidity
is going up again. They are saying we might have
a few rain showers today.

Still doing the same routine with the sleeping.
I am just going to have to let it work itself
out.
There is a debate going on at our states capitol
about whether to put on the November ballot
a vote to do away with Daylight savings time
like Arizona did.
I wish it was the other way around, that we stay
on daylight saving time for good.
It would still get dark here at 9pm, not like the UK where
it can stay light until very late in the summertime.
We do a lot of outside living here.

Lorna gets off work for the summer this Thursday and
the last of Junes relatives will be gone by then also.
June has had a 60ft RV parked in her driveway for
two weeks and she has been driving them around to
visit all the sights.
She does not have a side by side driveway but a one
behind the other type and this RV was almost as big
as her house! Imagine a large touring coach and
you get the picture. They are not allowed to park on our N/H
streets.
After a suitable rest we will be sipping white wine spritzers
again. not drunken but a nice little buzz as I will be walking
home ,so as long as I don't get run over its all good!
TTFN
