Ladies, if you carry on like this there will
only be Bond and I on here!
Vicky, if you do not want to disclose to the
world what you have wrong with you that
is your right.
Carole, I know you get very worried when
Vicky is missing and are under a great strain
dealing with all that you are dealing with
at the moment.
You have to accept that we all handle our
trials and tribulations in different ways
for different reasons.
Words written on a page are capable of
being taken wrongly so lets forgive
and forget.

Temperature slowly rising here, another nice day
ahead.
Big story at the moment is that midday yesterday
a lady was stabbed in her car at the posh shopping center
up the hill. (I go right by there on my way to my meeting)
The police are questioning a man at the moment and are
saying it seems to be a random attack.
No motive has been suggested.
I see the volcano in Hawaii has erupted after days of
swarms of small earthquakes and some areas are being
evacuated and incoming flights from the mainland
are being diverted to other airports around the Islands.

I think Melanie's little trip down here helped her sort a
few things out in her mind how to go forward with Jims
problem with depression.
I didn't give any advice, I just explained what this type
of depression does to a persons personality and brain.
He is getting talk treatment from a professional councilor
at the moment and that is helping somewhat.

Eye exam went well, Yes, I do have congenital cataracts
but they are no where near needing surgery.
Dr. Lee says not to have it done unless they get much worse.
I have to make a follow up appointment later.
The prescription glasses I have are still the correct ones
(this is after 4 years)
Still feeling the benefit of my hour at the beach with Melanie.
Just to be able to sit and absorb the sight and sound of the ocean
on a perfect day here made me see why I stay here.
I could never live anywhere else.
OOH, Jammy doughnuts, not had any of those in years !

Good afternoon ladies, a nice walk around Coventry, I walked down to Fargosford street
A couple of places closed but most little units open for peep into to look at the odd bits and pieces
Then it was fish and chips in Witherspoons before the long ride home
Now to get ready for the theatre
After tea coffee and L&Ls no doughnuts
Back later

New photo is Susan when doing the school play, the old gran sitting with her memories of her young husband in the trenches, and the school choir singing about the 1st world war.

In fact that's an insult Carole "What did you have a cold?" A COLD.....oh yeah a cold would have laid me so low. Mad and then you wonder why people stop posting.!!!!!!!!

At least I can STILL get something similar
here and even SOMETIMES warm just being made bounce

Is it THIS weekend the wedding Bond ....Hope you take some
pictures of you in all your finery Basketball

Well Gil and I had a better night after him staying in bed all
day ,I held his hand in bed and he slept well
Trouble is what the nurse will be coming to do today
I am not looking forward too Mad

He has a "thing" about Barbara ,said this morning wasn't
it better with her not here yesterday confused2
Tried to explain that she was here to HELP ME so
I do not have to worry leaving him alone while I run to the shopper
or bank etc ,not sure if he took it all in as I know he
would LOVE it if it was just ME  & HIM here ,he just does not WANT
anyone here headbanger

We had a few in the night ,should see my Lily's of the Valley
how they have sprung up with the heat and then a drink
Going to be another hot day again but with a bit more of a breeze
the weatherman is saying and a possible passing shower ....

Anyway I see Melanie reached home safely so Marge will be pleased

I miss our daughter and wish she were closer ,this next week she starts
her internship for what she has been studying for ,and will be not
for the next TWO months which is where she gets her income from
so do not KNOW how she will go on
She did say  though she made the Deans list ... cheers

( A Dean's List is an academic award, or notation, used to
recognize the level of high scholarship demonstrated by
students in a college or university.}


and right now is helping another neighbor look after a 57 yr old
lady who is 200lb and has just found out she has terminal cancer
after going for a Hysterectomy where they found a large tumor
that had attached itself to other organs and was in operable
and has been getting chemo ,so Tracie was getting a little $$
from helping her ,but no where enough I am sure for what she needs confused2  

OK so here is hoping the ladies had a good night

Well been chatting to the hospice nurse and
also the case worker for the State ,I had a few questions
for her as have not spoken to her since he was put onto
Hospice care
The nurse does not think he will see December as he is getting
weaker ,but as she said she is not God ,I know Gil is aware
that if he is still alive by then the life insurance we have been paying
these last 15 years will be nonexistent as it ends in Dec and unless
I want to pay $2000 a mth to continue what we HAVE been paying $123.00
it will all stop & I will have to dig a hole in the garden and put him in

Scares me thinking about all this ......

Vicky glad to know that should something happen to YOU David
would contact me ,or Rob via Face book and Susan ,and even though
you said Susan did tell me you had been ill before it was ONLY after I
inquired and as you might know THIS time I bit the bullet and DID NOT
DO ...

Anyway enough of this talk ,what did you have a cold or what ?

OK nurse coming tomorrow as she is going to give Gil a suppository
I said I would not do THAT again ,plus it reminds me of when my Nan
passed away ...bad memory

Speak tomorrow

I remember Susan was the Gran in a school play of 1st WW telling her Grandchildren about their Granddad when he was a young man in the trenches.        it was a time when us parents could take photos of their kids while the plays were going on.....something you can't these days.  "Oh afterwards fine" but that's not the point it's when they're acting out their parts you want the memories/photos.  

Of course he would Carole OR Susan/Rob would let you know on FB for you to tell the others......though Rob doesn't know I've been ill this time and Steve hasn't a clue about this time, or the time before       And Carole Susan did tell you about me being ill the last time when you asked her about me.   confused2

Oddly enough Bond Susan and Matt are going camping this weekend  .....I say to her "You're not my daughter" Smile  but they love it.....yes they like the high life as well but still love their camping.    I remember Susan saying to Matt  "I'll try the camping but if I hate it it's straight to a hotel"   but she loved it.

New avator is Susan in her school play.....she was the old gran talking to her grandson (the boy in the blue dungarees) telling him the story of his granddad and then the other grandchildren came in,

Ahh SO there she be ,and as she said
alive and ,BUT but Vicky HOW would
we KNOW otherwise ,can't see David coming on here

So what ever ailed you I hope its all well ,and yes
I DO know what it feels like now it seems to be getting worse
with Gil
Spencer just put the window A/C in the bedroom so at least
we will be comfortable tonight ,Gil is STILL Sleep that could be the
pill I gave him with his 1/2 a pill again Tramadol as the full one
yesterday they told me to give him made him really DOPEY and cantankerous
and he just was not taking directions,like SIT UP before reaching for your
tea ,and he kept picking it up and putting it down I do not think
he knew WHAT he was doing
Spencer said Carmen is hurting more now as something went "click"
when she got out of bed and she can hardly walk ,the Dr has already increased
her pain meds from after the car accident ,but does not want to
operate as he thinks it could make it WORSE ,so she is doped up
or in agony
She told Spencer it feels better in the warm months ,but he just said
if THIS is BETTER and its 80+ degrees confused2

I saw the lovely pics Marge of you and Melanie I think it did you BOTH
a world of good this trip .....LOVE your beach BTW
When I go to the eye Dr its a long ride home on the highway that is why
I asked Spencer to take me as they will probably dilate my peepers
as well

BOND ....ATTENTION lad ....lets get the drinks going as I am DYING
here
Back later on

Of course I'm alive....now Carole you'd have ALL got to know if I wasn't.     And there's not that much to read on the footy page.confused2

Wise words Margaret.    though I've always said you were the "Wise one" of us all.

Have to say Margaret loved reading about you & Melainie's time together..

 to Gil as well Carole, he's going through a lot Carole you know,  well of course you know, it's hard on you all.

And Bond.......you've been poorly as well, but so much better now.   Good.

Well got to go and telephone  Susan.....she's working at home today, and I said I'd speak to her today..

Just a quick post this morning.
Melanie wants to leave by 9am and
my appointment is at 10:20am.
Usually like to be there 15 minutes
early in case they want me to fill out
a form.
I will get drops in my eyes today but its
only a 5 minute drive from home on less
traveled roads so will take my sunglasses
and drive very carefully.
I think it has been good for her to take a time
out away from Jim. She does have a lot of
support from her women's group so not
worried about that.
Weather is good for her trip so
there are no hold ups along the way.
I think we have enjoyed spending time together
in a way we have not before so its all good.

Mad YUK that's NASTY Bond
So you had the missing member on your chest @
well at least we would know what was up crying

Had to give Gil a dose of Morphine and a pill from the
comfort box that calms him down as after taking him into bed
he took the oxygen tube off saying he could not breathe
and it did not help being so hot ,I opened all the bay windows
hoping it would bring in  some cooler air during the night but it
only cooled down to the 60's ,I telephone  Spencer to come
put the bedroom window A/C in today as that was not helping matters
and even having the over head fan and stand up fan  it was not good
and uncomfortable and there was LESS humidity than they are predicting
for today with a high around 86f and a chance of a thunder storm later
as well Shocked ,always happens when it gets too hot too fast Rolling Eyes

Even Buddy was looking for the cool laying on the wood floor
in the hall way and living room trying to get cool ...

Well here is hoping Melanie started off OK on her trip home
and arrives safe , and good luck Marge with your test ...

I shall be back at some time checking to see if any word from
our MIA girl   littleBlond
run  run  run

Morning Marge ....80f right now at 1pm fan
not TOO bad right now as the humidity is low
but supposed to get higher ,THEN I shall be miserable
as I cannot take the heat any more ,not like years ago
when I would take myself off down to Seaside Park
with a  a  a blanket and a
and spent 4 hrs cooking next to a Life Guard so no one would
bother a single woman laying on the sand

OK so I shall pull my maternal feelings  BACK and NOT do a THING
obviously the Peachey family do not like to tell anyone outside
the family circle whats going on so I shall stay MUM .....
I am glad when YOU have a problem and cannot post Marge
that you message me through FB ,something if Vicky would
ask Susan to do to me so we would know and not worry ,like you said
we post on here EVERY DAY and I think its only NATURAL to worry
when someone ,no matter WHO it is just STOPS for what ever reason confused2

Anyway enough of that then ....

Ahhh is Melanie going home SO SOON ,seems like she just arrived
but sounds like she helped you do a lot ,and then Ian will be back as well
you will soon be "ALL SHIP SHAPE "

Good luck with your test tomorrow Marge
Now where did Bond scamper off to .....  BOND L & L please
unless your up that tree watching for Vicky or or scanties
run run run run

Good morning from here.
Its party sunny and partly
cloudy at the moment as the
rain clouds are moving out.
We only had drizzle but some
places got the full Monty!

Melanie and I made a big dent in putting the
den back together yesterday, she swept and I mopped
She also used a broom with a rag on it to remove the
cobwebs and put most of the larger furniture back in its
place. going to take out the rug in there to give it a good
shake out and then hoover it.
Got more stuff moved to the garage and went through boxes
and got rid of the rubbish.
still have the wall of shelving to dust and the CDs to put away.
(Peter always had a pile of them out to pop in the 5 disc player
when he felt in the mood).
Still have about 25 bears to vac and arrange in the Radio Flyer
red wagon, must find a place for Punch and Judy ,they need to
be under glass as they are the ones that were the inspiration for
the set of stamps put out several years ago in honor of
the anniversary of their arrival to the UK.
I know they are not PC now but they were part of my childhood
and were for Peter as well.
They can from a vintage toy shop in Covent Garden.
Just found out I have my eye exam tomorrow morning at 10:40am
so hope Melanie has left before then(this is not the driving vision test,
that's next Monday).
It seems that Jim has been doing all the right things while she has been
gone, now we will wait and see if he continues once she gets back.
I think she has gained more inner strength since Xmas so I am not
so worried that she will back slide again.
Her friends in program are giving her a party to celebrate the 25 years
she has been clean and sober. Its a conscious choice each day to not
use but its not the struggle it was at first. I hope that Jim gets to that
level if he can get over the 6 month dip in recovery he goes through
each time he relapses.

Carole I know you turn into everyone's Mum when one of us is missing.
I cannot tell you what you should or should not do. Its really up to you.

I happen to think that as we are in touch every day it is worrisome when
we don't hear from a member for several days.

I am sure that David is trying to keep her away from the computer as she may
just start emailing everyone and tire herself out when she should be resting.

Must finish what I started yesterday and water the 2 pots.
Not too much labor today as Melanie needs her strength for the drive home
tomorrow. She is however determined to at least dip her toes in the ocean
before she leaves.

Good morning Bond ,I see even though
your ailing Mrs B had you doing your hoover duster
Mad  she could not give you time off not feeling well confused2

Well I had a slightly better night after making Gil return
to bed at 6pm as he was all over the shop and I did not
feel comfortable leaving him alone in the living room
as if I went into bed I knew with not sleeping the night
before I would be Sleep Sleep O U T cold ...
So he watched his English programs in there till 10pm
then I turned the TV off ,still had me up a few times
130am 330am but as I said a quieter night than the night before

OK so what do we do about our missing member , should I ASK
a certain daughter if she is OK or WHAT as its now been 4 days
since she last posted confused2
I wish Vicky would ask Susan to send me a message via FB  just
saying she is under the weather etc when this happens as she MUST KNOW
we are all SUPPOSED to be good mates and we WORRY

Anyway I will leave it  until I get your opinions

Morning Marge hope your day goes well ...whats on the Porter
agenda for today ....we should see 80f even here along the shore
the weather man is saying talktohand  GOD I HOPE NOT its too early
for THAT ,I have while there is cool air outside though opened all the windows
then will close them as the sunny  starts to shine

OK speak later have a good day
run run run run

Hello Marge ....well if Bond does not get
back in it will be THEE and ME on here

Yes I see that Vicky bounce  back fast hearing
what she puts away when her and David go out to eat
Shocked

Glad you liked the solar lights I love mine ,cannot
wait to go get some Petunia for my three tier planter
I made the last couple of years ....
Not going to bother with quite so much this year ,cannot
really with Spencer being off and not  able to contribute  $$
wise ,although he still does things here when I need them doing

You will have to take some pictures when your all sorted
what did Melanie think of your new appliances and windows
and awnings as she has not seen them until now right?

Sounds like the weather has changed just when she wants
to go paddle her toes

That is the problem Marge with Gil the nurse just said this
morning BECAUSE he IS AWARE of whats happening as she
asked him if he knew his name and mine and he is still
on point ,just has a problem getting the words out he wants
to say ....

I am sure someone will appreciate all the equipment you have
as well of pete ....and you will have all that space to sort
more "stuff" out

Do you pay your Amazon Prime yearly as I pay monthly confused2
and I see its gone up or going up ....

Its really nice here this side right now ,as I had Spencer buy a new toilet
seat for up here and he fitted it on as we also have the safety bars for Gil
while I ran up to play my lotto daily number 6 4 9 cannot stop
after 30+ yrs as you KNOW it will THEN COME OUT headbanger

Ok think I am going to lay on the bed with Gil and take a nap
as dinner is all done R/beef Brussels sprouts corn and small red
potato's I cooked around the meat with brown gravy ...

Back again later  BOND L & L please and maybe another
 for the ladies on the West coast

Hope you have a quiet day today Carole.
Maybe Gil thinks you are talking about him,
they can get very paranoid when their brain
is misfiring. It also starts the nerves misfiring
too.
Pots are done and ordered another 3 sets of the
same fairy lights to do the rest of the fence.
Had a good look at what's in the garage.

Melanie says their Lions club takes left over
medical equipment and give it to seniors who
may not be able to afford these items.
I have a small size travel wheelchair and a roller-
walker as well as a regular walking frame.
and a portable toilet (which has been sterilized)
and comes with disposable bags.
Going to check online to see where there is a
Lions club close to me.
I took care of one of the items that were on Ian's
list of things for me to do. he has canceled the
Amazon Prime for me so got a refund coming on that.
My Heritage (the Mormon site) can wait so will try
to sort out why I am registered with two accounts on
Ancestry. That I have to contact customer service for.
According to Ian, one runs out May 16th
but mine says June 9th!
I cannot talk to him at the moment, I have to wait until
he gets home.
I know Vicky goes down quite quickly when she gets ill.
There is a lot of illness going round that has evolved
from the Flu virus, its more like stomach flu this time.
plus there have been outbreaks of food poisoning over in
the UK as Vincent has only just got over it.
Vicky usually bounces back pretty quickly.

We have been having something similar here with some lettuce
crop from Arizona. its not just fresh cut from the field kind
either, its also the shredded kind in bags of mixed greens.
Washing it will not help. its in the water supply it was grown with
that has spread it throughout the plant.

Both of us slept in this morning so not had breakfast yet.
Melanie took care of the ceiling light bulbs yesterday and
she reset one clock and I reset the other in the bedroom.
Its just the chiming regulator clock in the kitchen now.
(She ever reset the electronic clock in my car!)
It is looking more like rain this morning so we may do
some dusting with a broom with a dust cloth on it in
the back room so we can put back the furniture in there
where it should be after giving the floor a damp mop.
Its getting darker by the moment and it seems to be drizzling
from what I can see outside.
Time to put the lights back on!

Well Corine Hospice nurse has been out
increased Gil's oxygen for a while and told me
what I can give him if he starts hurting again
like he did in the early morning hours ....
We discussed why he seems to be yelling at Spencer
and me ,and she thinks its because most or some
people who are terminally ill do not know much of where
they are at some time ,but that Gil is VERY aware of
what is happening to his body and is VERY ANGRY
so is taking it out on those closest to him me obviously
but still cannot figure what poor Spencer has done
The male aid also came out and washed him up but as he
is staying in bed for now did not get him up and dressed

He just asked for some buttered ....

Sun's out now and going up into the low 70's

Cannot leave the house with Gil like he is so have to wait
on Spencer to come back so I can run to the store

Hope your OK Bond ,have you been past Vicky's house
maybe she has the frilly's flying 1/2 mast as a sign she is unwell confused2

Back later run run

tired morning Bond oh what a night
ended up calling the on duty Hospice nurse
at 315am as Gil has been in agony ,now its
his LEFT shoulder that he says has what feels
like a burning pain in it ,so have NO IDEA what
this is but last night before bringing him into bed
I gave him 1/2 his Tramadol pill PLUS 4 500mg
of what is like Tylenol,and all I heard was "oh oh oh"
on and off waking me at 1am to pee ,and then again
at 3am ....anyway they give you what they call a comfort
box that is kept in the fridge and she told me to take the Morphine
out and give him .025 to see how that helped and to call back
if it did not help ,well he seemed to relax but when I got up
at 444am he started again saying he wanted a pill .but
I told him to try and relax and go back to sleep as I think
its the start of his decline ,all I know is I am TIRED as well

Hope you feel better Bond ,don't over do it

Still no sign or word from Vicky so we wait and wonder confused2


Morning Marge hope Melanie gets to tip her toes today
I see you were at the Marina yesterday but she said it was
threatening so did not do it yet

Anyway take care I will be back but can feel a easychair for ME
later coming on .......

My sister telephone Liz and will be calling her again next week

Hello West coast ....sounds like your having a
good time and I am glad ....not so good here today
Hospice nurse coming later to assess Gil as he did
something this morning that he has never done ,and they
want to see if its because his condition is worsening
Judging by his MOOD before Barb went home I feel
like crawling under a rock,and Spencer got YELLED
at as well and it ALWAYS seems to me me and him
so Dr's office just said that is all medical and for Spencer
and me to try and not take it personally ,not easy some days
believe me ,as Spencer asks WHY HIM and what did HE DO confused2

He is on the oxygen right now though easychair  so sitting here  
quietly ....

I don't know what to think about Vicky Marge as she seems
to be doing really well for a while ,eating going out etc for X amount of
time  then she either gets sick or what ever ,and of course we
cannot know whats wrong  as no way to find out ,and I learned my lesson
before  trying to find out confused2

Sorry Bond how come your ailing are you in sympathy with Vicky
or what
Make yourself some warm lemon and honey and telephone  me in the
morning

Ok made stuffed peppers for dinner .....will peek in later to see
if ANYONE has posted or not

See YA

Good morning from the left coast of USA.
Partly sunny this morning, local temperature
at the moment is 63f going to a high of 68f.
low tonight expected to be 55f. Humidity
stands at 78%.
Melanie and I are going to set up the two big
pots on the porch today and she wants to go to
the beach and dip her toes in the ocean this
afternoon (she told a friend that's what she
wanted to do).
We did a bit of sorting in the garage yesterday.
She says the Lions Club might take Peters
wheelchair. walker and such which will clear a
nice space in the middle of the floor in there.
We also got a big box of soft toys down from one
of the top shelves and she has said they can all
be donated as most were won at fairs and carnivals.

The Ping-Pong table can be donated to the Viet Veterans
along with Ian's bike.
There is so much Xmas stuff in there like icicle lights and
garlands that we could never find so bought new ones.
Those things can go to the Salvation Army.
The new fairy light twinkled last night so going to order 3
more strings to line the whole fence.

We are going to wipe off and set out the Patio set and umbrellas
and chair pads. So come Memorial day I will have some semblance
of normality out there instead of it looking like a storage yard!
My little arch bridge needs re staining and going to repaint my
small Gnomes (when I am not doing other things). Rolling Eyes

Ian will probably be here again around Peters birthday so he can
do the heavy lifting stuff.
Yesterday we had so much Mexican food that we brought half of it
home for lunch today. Cannot eat as much as I used to but its never
wasted. A little brown rice, a little mooshy beans and half a Burrito.
and some salad.

I do hope that Vicky is not unwell again too. but there is still a lot of stuff
going round even at this late date usually flu season has ended by now.
Whatever it is, if your immune system is weak you get everything going.
Melanie came here with a sinus infection and medication which is
slowly clearing up. hers is because of the biologic she is taking for her Crohn's,
its like a side effect that will hopefully go away eventually.
She is able to eat things now that she never could before with less
after effects.
Ian is off to Norfolk today, filming I don't know what.
Its mostly small scenes but it keeps him employed and earning money.
Must dash as we both need breakfast and start our day here. TTFN

Oh well done Marge sounds like something
I would be into as well with the statues I like
"different" items around the garden ,like the old
iron bed rail I placed ,next to the Hydrangea as they
were falling over the small patio Gil made near one of
the "sitting areas" I created in Stratford ,or the old screen door
that the mesh screen was broken I secured that to the back
chain link fence and trained my Honeysuckle up and through
the opening ,at first Gil said get rid of that JUNK but when he
saw what it looked like he agreed it was a conversation
piece and also the piece of wood Ruth and I found washed
up near the seawall that we lifted into my 4x4  and I put near
where the Dianthus and Candy Tuft were growing and they started
to trail around it ,looked really good {well I thought so }funnytvprog

Back then when Ruth was alive Gil was never sure WHAT we would
come home with funnytvprog

I do not think Liz neglected her own health Marge after losing her husband
she just has had some bad luck with her husband then her dog Onslow
passing so close and now this
Same as me I always have taken care of the important Dr's visits
for myself confused2

Well I brought back peppers to make stuffed peppers in the week
also going to make a home made pizza as it looks like Spencer
will be home to Sleep  Monday

He will be :driver:  me July 6th to the eye  specialist as well ...

Rain still holding off but think Blaine is going to borrow his friends
long loppers to do the branches

I shall be back later

So sorry to hear about your friend Carole.
It sometimes happens that way.
Especially when you neglect your own
health looking after your mate.
My Aunt Silv was diagnosed with breast
cancer that had spread not long after
Uncle Fred died, she survived
him by less than 2 years.
Its why I have been so careful about
looking after myself.

Melanie got a lot done yesterday, I hosed off the
porch and chairs while she assembled the glider
(with a little help from me) it was really simple
so done in about 10 -15 minutes from being taken
out of the box.
After everything was left to dry we went and looks around
the Garden center, Boy, was it busy.

At least got some ideas about what I wanted then went to
The Orchard Supply and Hardware (OSH) and started to pile
plants in the basket when I saw a gnome about 3 feet high
made of old large metal oil cans and fell instantly in love and
had to have him. Its a local artist and they had a wonderful collection.
I would have bought another one but they were so expensive so
others will have to wait. No only Gnomes but crazy birds and creatures
as well as egrets (they stood over 4 foot high).

At the garden nursery they had versions of old minis, VW campers and an old fashioned
all steel airflow trailers , all done in the same way but were completely out of my range
The roofs were made open to accept plants. They are about two feet long and about
19 inches high but completely true to what they were supposed to be.
I was never one to have regular statues in my garden but these were right up my street!
Going to do the two large pots on the front steps today.

We are also going to investigate the large box of soft toys in the garage, of course its
on the highest shelf so with two of us we can get it down safely. Its not heavy
just bulky.

Using the hose became a silly experience as the multi head sprayer had
not been used in a long time so had to keep shutting off the water on the trigger
type sprayer by using the screw that controls the water as the trigger spring did not
work so it sounded like a large bull frog every time I turned it on and off.
Melanie and I could not stop laughing but we got the job done.
Seems Jim is doing well at home so its making her feel a lot less stressed.
The weather has cooperated by being sunny but not too hot with a nice fresh
breeze, definitely gardening weather.
I charge up my iPad every night and my cell phone every two days as these are the
two most used electronic items I own. They are not the latest models but should
last another few years at least.
I don't know if I mentioned that the plant nursery is situated at the end of the
runway at Torrance airfield so not only could we hear the War Bird's going over
but could see them too ,close up!
They will be leaving this afternoon but it was lovely while they were here.
Felt a little stiff last night and when I first woke up this morning but its nothing
that a Tylenol won't take care of.
Oh, I almost forgot , we also put up the garden light strings and found out
I need 3 more strings to do the whole fence!
Can't wait for them to charge up today and possibly see them on tonight.
There are three of the old spike in the ground ones still working so may use them
somewhere else out of reach of the gardeners. I think what I might do is put the
dainty lights that someone gave me, in some of the other pots so safe from harm.
:-D
Time for breakfast here, another busy day on the schedule. TTFN
