Happy Easter to everyone.

When's Tracie coming Carole?

Today is looking much better here......tomorrow is supposed to be either snow or all day. Shocked

That's one of the things I was pleased about when David said yes to us getting married in a registry.....I hadn't the money to save up for a wedding dress etc and I got my suit with a "coupon" it was a nice suit though not really what I'd have gone for if I'd had a choice. I had to go to just one shop to cash it in. THOUGH my Gran didn't get her outfit that way ...crafty devil. Oh well such was life. once said "You buy clothes now because you couldn't then" and she has a point.

affraid Bond......and you got a bill at the end week. people just wouldn't believe it would they. Mad

That's lovely Margaret you calling Lorna over to share your goodies.

Oh I meant to say Carole I've not heard about that Chinese Space Station confused2 put the sofa upside down girls and crawl under that.

Finished my book Last Breath by Robert Bryndza ....it is good.

Back later.

Hi all, good news for our anual motor show (Marge BB & BR would look great ) they are looking to get a fly past by a Lancaster bomber:dancingladies:
We had a group of some ten Harleys go through the town and with the narrow streets it sounded like a hundred they were only just ticking over so they had that thud of a heart beat
as this marks a 100years of the RAF I should sort the photo of my grandad who finished up his first world war service in the Royal flying corps .
He then became a very smart postman
I'll refill the kettle

Hi Marge, I had the same thig when I started work I came to a agrement with my mum that I would give he half of my £3:7/11 and that would build up as I got more money untill my dad heard of it and said you hand over £3:00 or ill pack your case and throw you out my self so as you may expect we never got on after that and one of the reasons I was going to Australia as a  £10 pom, I also got a Bill at the end of the week for extras for things like Mars bar, bottle of pop apple, orange, I saved one Bill to show mrsb

When my wages went up after finishing my training
at AWA, I opened a Post Office account to save a
little money after paying my Mum.
I got so mad at her for expecting me to turn over
my whole pay packet at first but six months later
she presented me with a clothing check for the
whole amount!
(I did need more grown up clothes now I was
working in an office, I had been used to wearing
a uniform every day!)

Went shopping yesterday and could not find my favorite
corn chips (they had been out for over a week)
so went to another chain market and found some there.
As I walked through their bakery department I spied
something I had not had in years, Cream Puffs!
there were two in a plastic container.
I knew who would appreciate sharing them with me so
gave Lorna a call when I got home.
I also took her a dark chocolate bunny and a small
Cadbury egg and two of my package of four Hot
Cross Buns.
She had been off work this week with all the schools
out for Easter break. As usual she was trying to get
a lot done and was ready for a glass of wine and
a Cream Puff.
Neither of us have anything planned for tomorrow
and we both are ready for an uninterrupted day
at home.
Today is cats ablutions day and a general tidy up
around the house. I still have light bulbs to replace
and three battery clocks to "spring forward"

The sunny is out but there is still a lot of mist about
because of the high humidity level(91%)
Its 53f at this moment with an expected high of 63f,
tonight's low is expected to be 55f
The forecast said party cloudy today but that may
come later.

Have not heard if the Chinese Space Station has come down
yet, we were also warned it could come down over California.
They are saying it might not be down until Monday.
Where's my hard hat, surrender

April first was Peters official retirement date which he always found
very ironic . That was 23years ago now. how time has flown.
No sign of me retiring yet,clearing up one area makes more mess
in another area. but it will all eventually go out the door never to
return if I keep at it.
I am ahead of the game unlike Lorna who spent 5 years just getting over
her physical injuries and is just now having Yolanda help her box up
all the extra stuff she doesn't need anymore.Lorna still has
episodes of PTSD as what killed her husband was so traumatic.
I find I can hold it together most of the time but special days
still make me really sad. I get so busy sometimes that I do not
have time to indulge in self pity. The last few weeks have been
an example of that.
Its that time again, Hi Ho, Hi Ho its off to work I go.

Hearing about all the a
comes to mind
♪ "The green green grass of home " ♪

Well was in the middle of changing all our bedding
after giving Gil a shower {which I have told him
NO MORE as his latest thing that this brain thing makes
him do is FREEZE in place and he cannot or will not MOVE}
So its going to be Bed Baths for him ...

Anyway as I was saying was in the middle of doing the bedding
when they called to say the lens they had to replace {no charge}
were in ,so I ran over while Blaine was still at home with his dad
took an hour so while I waited I ran up to Big Y for a couple of
items I forgot yesterday and they were ready when I got back
as its only down the street from there ....
I also took my receipt with me from the last February as I had
to PAY for them $116 ,as one attendant was trying to say they replaced
THEM for free headbanger I KNOW I paid for them as I was so mad
as the warranty had only ran out in the January
They have no idea WHY this has happened now TWO times
seems funny where I used to get them done I never in all the years
going there had THIS happen confused2

Anyway hope your all enjoying your Easter Saturday ,its ABSOLUTELY
GORGEOUS here right now so taking it all in before it changes

Morning Marge hows the West coast today ?

Wendy says they WERE going to a BBQ tomorrow but not now as its also
saying rain and cold in Plymouth
Be back again run run

It's still ......yes they're saying we could have snow Monday.   confused2

You see Carole when I got married and years later the wage I worked for went into the house......carrying on how it was when I was still living at home it's never been "Well it's MY Salary so it's mine to do what I like".  

affraid  Oh no Bond hiding money and then forgetting where she'd put it    Shocked  better tell you all where my lock up box is.    run  run  run    what was I supposed to be telling you all?     littleBlond

Oh Carole when I've finished reading a page I just shut the Kindle and when I open it again it's where I last read it.

Good afternoon ladies from a wet and cold Atherstone
That's the best idea Vicky stay indoors today
Ive just walked into town to pick up odd bits and I just started to rain again on the way back so thanks for the brolly Carole its very cold rain almost sleat
Ho my mother hid money from my father but then in later years she had forgotten where she had hid it we hope we found it all but we never knew if we did as it was everywhere even the a £100 in the bag of plastic Bags on the door Knob at the back of the kitchen door, like her mother before her she didn't put money in the bank and when she died we found a roll of old fivers in powder egg tin, not the big white fivers but the ones that came after with a lion on wit a big chain around his neck
Now my dad put money in the bank but as the max was some thing like erm I think it was £400 or £200 he opened three accounts at different banks but when he died this all caught up with him and I had to pay money back
One of the treats I did pick up was a pack of custard slices so ill put the kettle on

MORNING VICKY funnytvprog
Do you bookmark your Kindle before
logging off ? as when you do that should show
you the title
I can do that by just touching the middle of a page
and it takes me to where it says "book mark"
it shrinks the page santa

What stories we have to tell.       buried in the garden so the husband can't get his hands on it Smile  love it.....THOUGH I don't put my end of the month money in the bank because  it's in both our names and though I would never touch a penny of it (when I order books from Amazon as soon as they arrive I give the money back to David.....oh and my card doesn't work online, for some reason, so I have to get David to order something for me,  WE have been to the bank to find out why and have been told to do it online....David's tried but no joy so I can't even order something without him knowing )  I do save up, put my money in a lock up box and once that key is turned I don't dip in for anything.      Yep there's a story in everyone.

Yes I imagine you would grow up quickly Carole.

I'm reading a detective book, well a Kindle, it's really good couldn't put it down last night.....I can't remember the name, I'll let you know when I've finished and I can get to the title.  There must be a way of doing it but I'm clueless.   Anyway it's really good.

Back later.....oh won't be going out.

Glad you all stayed dry then over there

I decided to splurge on fish n chips so popped
out while Gil was hooked up on his machine
Of course that was when Dr Chokskey's liaison
Jackie called to find out what discomfort Gil was
in as Corine the new nurse had reported to her about
I told her that is nothing new as he has these pains
EVERY single day sometimes his legs always his neck
and head ,so she is going to talk to the Dr about the Tramadol
as I told her he gets 1000 acetaminophen which is basically
Tylenol before going to sleep {he can have 4000 a day}
and that is it for pain ....

My independence came after Gil and I divorced in 1972
as being left in a strange country with three kids and no support
one grows up and independent VERY QUICKLY
I could have pushed for child support but being 3100 miles
away I figured how easy would it be to get it ,plus Gil was out of work
back then so I figured it was not worth the hassle confused2

Anyway i find my tummy is a little off this afternoon so going to lay
it down
Speak tomorrow guys

I agree when we were first married, he was an
engineer for goodness sake and prided himself
on his prowess with numbers so let him handle
every thing.
( I was so scared of messing up) like I had been
at home with my dad.
Later as I got more independent and he working long
overtime hours, I was frustrated that I was turning
into my Mum. I had a car I could not put gas in as
he had the gas credit card and wouldn't give it to me.
and they didn't take checks and I didn't have much cash
on me. I always had to wait for him to come home and
take care of everything.
That started to change when we went to St. Louis and
everyone came down with Chicken Pox except me!
I had to take a form filled out by Peter putting my name
on the account because I needed to buy a washer and dryer
because I could not use the ones at the apartment block.
I still didn't get a check book of my own until we got back to
California! I also got a gas credit card as I was having to drive
down town to the hospital where Melanie was having her
surgery and recovery every day for 2 weeks.
Peter was working 60 hours a week then so never home until
late. It just got too complicated so I became very independent.
I had to be able to take care of things while he was not there.
Its a long time ago but it was one of the only frustrations I had
to live with that taught me a valuable lesson. One never knows
when we will have to act on our own and should be able to take
care of ourselves when our men folk are not around.
Luckily for me it turned into a 50/50 partnership finally.

Lorna had a story to tell after divorcing her first husband, she
worked and worked but for some reason did not want to start
a bank account because it might be attached in the divorce
proceedings (its a community property state) so she kept
putting into a tin can and buried it in her garden.
Then she met he second husband who was an Attorney and she
was his office manager. She finally admitted to him what she had done
and when it was finally dug up the can had rusted and ruined most
of the notes but as the serial numbers were still there they sent it all
to the Treasury (US) and got most of then replaced.
Richard wrote a funny letter with them which Lorna still has a copy
of it framed on the wall in her house.
Some one on one of the Coventry sites posted a photo of the wooden cross
in the old Cathedral for good Friday so wrote a little post in the comments.
Got to go shopper as the fridgefood is looking kind of empty.

It was spitting as we headed into Leics Carole.

Ah Tramadol....yes it's the strongest pain pill you can take Carole.....that's what I was on when I had my kidney stones last year, though we aren't put on it for long it's addictive, though I'm sure they'll not worry about Gil being on it.  

Oh David will buy things for the house IF HE thinks we need them Mad .....the things about me buying MY clothes he'll point something out "That's nice have you seen this?"   but let ME see something and he'll go round the houses trying to change my mind.....until I do, not because I can see his point of view but because I just give in, he's done it for years.     I remember when we first got married I was looking for a dress for an occasion, and he kept pointing out dresses which ...well something your granny would wear, I was 22 for heaven sake   confused2  

The cheque book is in both our names as are both credit and debit cards but he knows I'd never use them......in fact a number of times he's taken my card just to use it to keep it going. ....though a couple of years ago when Susan & I went into town without her Dad in tow, I had a great time trying things on and buying things, though I was going to pay with cash per usual and Susan said "Use your card" so I tried and though I thought I knew my number, well it was either this way or that, I realised I didn't know what to do....Susan was at one cash desk and I was at this other punching in the first set of numbers....nop....ah then it's this way....but I was worried because I was positive I'd got the number right the first time, Susan came over (she'd bought her stuff)  and said "Haven't you sorted it yet?"  in the end she bought the two tops with her card and I gave her the money afterwards.....I haven't tried it since.    confused2 .....I know I'm daft but it's the same as I was when I was at home, my Gran ruled and I just went along with it.....David took over from her and I allowed it......no wonder she liked him from the off.  I can just image her thinking "Oh yes he'll keep her in place"      Sigh!!!!      I bought my kids things from the family allowance ....when I worked that money went into the house, I never knew for years that I was paid a fee for being a Company Director until Marilyn (my SIL) told me.....when he had a pay rise I never knew until once again Marilyn mentioned it.   So from then on I got my fee....and that's how I had £100 at the end of the month and then of course that's carried on with my pension....it goes into the house (& I get £100 at the end of the month), even though David has TWO private pensions and his state pension.....the private pensions die with him when he does.   confused2    sorry you've got me off now Margaret.....but it's good to get it off your chest.

Glad you managed to get your ipad back ok.....phew.

We've still got some hot cross buns.

Hi Marge glad you got in and sounds
like your coping well ,as to keeping
YOU sane ,that is why I panic when
one of us is MIA as its like part of my
family is missing and I NEED that chattable
even if it IS just silly talk
Glad you managed to get back and your Ipad was there
sad about how some people have "sticky fingers"

Suns trying to come out this side Marge

Gil was never good at banking /writing checks
so I have always done it ,he always liked to pay
cash but some times you NEED to have an account
He was always good at math etc ,just hated the paper
work and still does
If I went before him he would have NO IDEA confused2

I have noticed though the little $$ he has now he
does not want to let it go ,I asked him if I should
put it in with him when its HIS time to go headbanger

It was the one thing that irritated me about Peter.
If he wanted something (like Big Red) he went out
and bought it without blinking an eye. Over
the years he splashed out on items for his pleasure
but I had to beg for everything I needed like an upright
vacuum cleaner.
I did in the end talk some sense into him but it took
years before I got new things for the house.
It took Nine years to be trusted with a check book on
HIS account and it took a further 9 years to be given
a credit card in HIS name .
I had never given him any reason to question my
responsibility with OUR money!
I got some sessions with a psychologist who explained
how to get some equality in our marriage and it worked!
She had me explain that I was an unpaid worker and that
if he paid me the wage that professional housekeepers
got , he could not afford me!
It and other thing changed the dynamic of our relationship.
to be on a more equal footing.
Don't know why I brought that up but I was dreaming along
these lines lasts night and its better to express my feelings
about it than wonder why I dreamt about it.
I do know that no matter how this DMV thing turns out I am
writing to the director of our State DMV and chew him out
(in the most polite English Way of course).I am very good
at that.
Had a small crisis last night, I took my iPad to the meeting
to show the picture of Melanie in her wet suit after she had
been surfing for the first time, I got home and started to unload
BR and could not find it, after making sure I did not have it,
I had to drive like a rally driver up the hill to the retreat and sure
enough I had left itonthe black stand that holds the TV they use
so got it back. I did not get home until gone 11 pm!
I didn't get to sleep until about 2 am.
They employ a maid at the retreat who likes to "pick up" things.
She almost got my fleece jacket a couple of years ago so it was a
bit of a panic situation.

Sun is out here but quite misty. It turned out hotter than was
predicted yesterday so may get the same today.
I have no real plans for Easter but it does not matter as I
can dive into the rest of the paperwork that needs filing
without having the phone ring countless times.

I have some English Hot Cross Buns this time around.
I also picked up some chocolate bunnies and small Easter
Eggs at the British shop so all I need is some "grass" and
small bags and give them to the people who have helped
me stay sane these last 2 years.
You guys have also been a big part of my surviving it
as well. So a big THANK YOU all round.


Must take my pills now and have my second

Hello Vicky ,so you have rain now
and its clearing here and should be a
BRILLIANT day tomorrow they are saying

When Barb got here I :driver: to the shopper
and picked up what I would normally get Sunday
as my grocery store Big Y closes so their employees
can be at home with their families ,I know I could
go tomorrow but thought I would take advantage
of Barb being here to get out

The New visiting Hospice nurse and case manager
arrived promptly at 1130am and Corine was very nice
so she will be back next Wednesday and Babby in 3 weeks
to check on Gil's condition
His oxygen level was down again today only 87...
She is also going to talk to his GP who still has a say to
see if she can get something other than the 1000mg pain pills
I have been giving him for the constant pain he is always
complaining about in his neck head and legs etc ,something
called Tramadol ?

Its a FULL MOON Saturday Vicky nono

So did you check your PM's as I see your "boss" was logged
in AGAIN yesterday

I will do the drinks ,watching The Legend of Hercules
Back later just made grilled cheese and tomato sarnies for lunch
probably fish or pizza for dinner being Good Friday

A blessed Good friday everyone
We have showers here this morning ,the only
saving grace is the temps are in the 50's already
at 5am ....
Could only lie in till 530am {Blaine is off today}
so no need to get up ,but Buddy had had enough
and wanted catmilkbowl ,could not complain as
he was SUCH a good boy last night ,went into bed
with me at 630pm and kept curling up against my
legs cuddling ....ahhhhh

Before you worry ,Marge is fine she had a dental
appointment yesterday then a confrontation with the
DMV as it would not let her on the web site using her
birth date ....go get um girl
She said trying to do it by telephone it keeps saying
it did not understand as her "accent" was getting in the
way
Guess with my "accent" sounding more American after
working a switchboard for over 30+ years gets me by
I remember when going over to the and a taxi driver asking
"where u from then luv" upon saying Coventry ,he said
Nah talktohand you sound like a "yank"
And yet over HERE they can still hear some of my British accent
and being asked AGAIN "where are YOU from"

So Bond left for Leicester after all I see, and Vicky off to
Steve's bearing present present

Well after Barb gets here and gets Gil all spruced up
we should have the other two Hospice people arriving at 1130am

Anyway hopefully see you guys later then ,does not even FEEL
like Easter to me ,every day is feeling the same headbanger
run run run run

Oh I don't think Gil would be dead Carole, he would be serious where I'm not, if you're ill they rush you straight into hospital, as they had with me but now they're just keeping an eye on me....as my daughter told me nono  her finger.    Ill people come first.

Gil is taking a easychair ,your right about having
alone time ,I think though that is his problem when
Barb and I talk ,as we only speak when no one is
here if we HAVE to know what I mean confused2

How long do you think it will take to hear the results
of your cuff test Vicky Basketball

Ok I will just nibble on this bikky and be back ,I just started
to read another bookon my Kindle but it "SOUNDS" familiar
so have a feeling I have read in in paper back form before headbanger

Glad you know what Bond is on about then as
his cell phone does "talk funny" at times and
he does not correct it ,so I sometimes scratch
my head wondering what he means

No Vicky he got his through before me so mine
does not get put into MY account until April 14 now
next one due ,its not a lot but it comes in handy
believe you me

Guess I will have to play butler where's me pinny

Well it's    was nice earlier on but not now.

Went to Big Palmers......I had a portion of chips.....oh Carole I had lemon on mine today  Shocked    talktohand Well it was like this....usually they ask is there anything else we need, do we want any sauce's?  and I ask for tomato well today they didn't  confused2  David said  "I'll go and ask for some sauce" but I said not to bother I'd squeeze some of David's lemon onto them.....and I did.  

Yes Carole Bond first said "Bangles"  when I asked what he was on about he said he meant "Bangers"  I still didn't understand what he was on about.....I do now....well I think I do.  Smile

Don't you get your  pension the same time as Gil does Carole?

Make the most of no one due today then Carole......I remember you saying having a houseful means you not having time alone with Gil, so make the most of it.   IF YOU CAN.

Finished my book......very odd ending, though I'd started thinking the storyline was stupid before the end anyway.

Is the Butler around?

Morning Bond ....BADUSH! .....
love your "thought" signs funnytvprog
"CABOOM!"
Starting off mild this morning as at 5am its already 44f

Spencer came home AGAIN last night was surprised
hearing the garage door going up {both ours and Blaine's
bedroom are over the garage }

Another surprise this morning {a nice one } Gil's UK SS
was deposited into his bank, was not due until Monday
but guess because of it being Easter weekend they paid early
not that its money we can spend as its all accounted for ,but
nice seeing it there  
US SS due in the 3rd each month ....

Woke up AGAIN twice last night after bringing Gil in at 10pm
11:30pm and AGAIN at 1:30am ,before Gil woke me trying to
get out of bed at 4:00am  as he needed to waitingloo
I do not know whats making me wake up tired tired

Anyway no one due today ,but tomorrow will be a FULL HOUSE
Barb of course ,then the Hospice case manager is coming out
again to see Gil at 11:30am and she will be bringing the
REPLACEMENT for the nurse that we had been seeing Mary
is they tell me cutting back on her "case load" so we will now have
Corine Rolling Eyes  don't like that as Gil was comfortable with her
now we have to see how he reacts to yet ANOTHER nurse

Anyway enjoy your day folks speak later oh and Vicky I think
Bond was referring to his posting where his spell/check was typing
BANGERS instead of BANGLES that he was crappc funnytvprog

MORNING LADIES

Vicky I KNOW its not a BRACELET
I understand its a BP cuff was trying to be "cute"
At least your BP was not 200/ when you went .....even though
160/ was not perfect

So Bev's hiding out @

Went to the bank when Barb got here ,Gil decided he wanted
to lay in till 10am so I left while the going was good , talktohand
should have known , left at 915am got back at 1120am was greeted
with "where have you been for THREE HOURS " never mind
it takes time to :driver: to where your going ,do your business
and :driver: back ....
Was not gone 3 hours any way and considering I hit TWO
banks {Gil's SS goes in his along with his Hubble pension,which is what
I went for today to keep him happy }and also picked up some more
apple juice that he drinks every day ......must be in one of THOSE
moods AGAIN headbanger

Plus the nurse we HAVE been seeing has scaled back on some
of her patients and so it will now be a "Corine" who is coming
Friday along with the case manager to introduce herself and check
Gil out confused2

Overcast here today but temps not bad in the 40's

Going to relax now for a bit before starting dinner run run run

One thing I can say is that my life is never dull
very long.
I was noodling about on my iPad and found another
Coventry site so was reading a comment from a
lady who said the same thing as me about the
photo of Priory Row and it turns out she is related
to me! Her Great Grand father is my Great Grand
father! her Granddad was one of my Grandmothers
elder brothers!
How about that!

I had a restless night as I think I must be allergic to
something in the frozen entrees I buy which I never
had a problem with until lately. (I only eat one or
two a week just to give me a bit more variety).
I think I will go back to buying a fresh roasted
chicken once a week and stripping it and using
that as my protein source.
I have ruled out anything else as I have eaten
from the ham, lettuce and tomatoes and cheese
and other stuff I already have with no problem.
I am going to have a vanilla yogurt this morning
with a banana and an oatmeal energy bar as I feel
fine now.
Might take BR down to the car wash to make him
spiffy for Easter.
Have not seen any hotcross buns yet but will keep
checking.
I like tomato sauce better too but put it on the side
of my plate to dip in. unless its a fast food meal
like hamburger or fish and chips.
I hate to see someone drown a beautiful steak with
ketchup before they have even tasted it!
My tummy is rumbling so better go and put something
in it. Haven't had my first yet.

Well had the monitor taken off......it wasn't too bad sleeping etc.     and yes Carole she tested the monitor when it was put on "Is it usually high?" she asked then told me it was 160......so we will see      Benjie thought he'd got a robot Mummy.   Smile      It's not a bracelet Carole it's a cuff then a wire goes round my back and down through my bra and the monitor goes into cotton bag.....it's like a cotton ribbon strap going across the front of me, every so often it goes "Beep" and then "Buzz" which tightens the cuff and you can hear the clicking in the monitor.   You have to put your arm down and relax it when this happens.    talktohand   as I told the nurse today "It was fine"

Bangles Bond?     confused2

They always ask if there's anything else we needed so we can say if we need any tomato or mayonnaise sauce or anything else.   Matt (SIL)  puts mayonnaise on chips or various other things but I'm a tomato girl.

confused2  Not sure what Bev's doing Carole.......tried a couple of times but no joy.

Went food shopping shopper  after the hospital and now we're off out.
