They camp either in Cornwall or Weymouth,    I've been to both areas holidaying in a cottage though and never been bitten, neither as Rob and he was bitten when we went to Portugal,   learnt to use the plugs that stop the mosquitoes,    but never been bitten in Cornwall or Weymouth,   when you last went out with Gil & the boys were you bitten by bugs?   When you go shopping.....walking to or away from your 4x4  are you bitten by bugs?   confused2    If you go into your garden are you bitten by bugs?

Matt picked France out for Susan at work, he picked Egypt or himself...... funnytvprog

Yes that's why I love the idea of Susan living in Portbury the neighbours are so friendly and of course Matt's friend Terry and his wife Tara and kiddies live there. as well as Matt's parents of course......and Becky pops in to see her parents (Matt's sister) and Susan & her are very close,  so it'll be a great place to live for them

Benjie goes for a walk 3 times a day Carole.

Oh Bond's doing the drinks........glad you enjoyed the show. I thought it was good.

Oh Rob's on the radio again Tuesday.

Morning Marge and your a better gal than I
no matter HOW civilized the camp maybe
Vicky no bugs ,where are they then ?

Yes Argentina lost ,and Portugal is one down
in the first 10 mins

Nice though Marge being able to get together with neighbors
I always say as you never know when you may need them

Did you see the small clip I sent you Marge of my solar lights
out back ,Tracie said they looked like miniature UFO's

Would send you it also Vicky but not sure you could view it

Has anyone seen my tongue  last seen dragging itself behind
me as no one made the

Wendy and Derek are at a place in Plymouth called The Treasury
eating he said it was so nice he took her back again today
They at least left Henry home with Derek said fan going in all rooms
access to his water and the use of a radio
I said a "dogs life" ,and that they are at least listening to me
taking him out either early morning or late at night  for his walk

I am with you NEVER would let Saba loose off leash ,you can never tell when
something or someone would make him dash off and I would never have
forgiven myself had something happened to him

Made shrimp with mushrooms and broccoli in a white sauce
over white rice for dinner today
Gil almost went over on me after getting him up wheeled him into the
living room and in getting him into his chair he lunged forward making
me pull him up bearing all his dead weight as he just lets himself go
does not try to stop himself ,so screamed out for Blaine who was still
home  {thank God} who grabbed him
Should have KNOWN it was going to be one of those days
when trying to get him out of bed he slid to far down and was laying there
with his legs over the bed unable to pull his dead weight up so AGAIN
had called Blaine,anyway my back and leg are hurting slightly as I pulled up so hard
trying not to let him fall head first so going to take it easy for a while Mad Mad  

Be back later ....PANT PANT PANT water L & L I need water

Have to say Margaret I'm the same with zippers.....zippers and me just don't get along, it never does as it's suppose to.     Oh I also have no problem with trouser zipper (Mine I might add)  but jackets......a law to themselves.

Reading this brilliant book on Downton Abbey.......I'm waiting for David to get his head from out of the kitchen cupboard.....we've got a leak .....but my husband says   talktohand   "I'll sort it no problems"   that was nearly 2 hours ago.   Rolling Eyes    I've made drinks TWICE, well boiled the , but "Later" he says.      why am I holding on though from   just because David says he is?      confused2

As I think I told you back in the day I was
associated with a primitive Girl Scout camp
out on the edge of the Mojave desert.

Peter and I never went camping as a family
so when I directed the encampment, he
needed to be there along with the other
dads who volunteered their time for 5 days
over Easter vacation. He did quite well
overall but has always had a battle with
zippers! Zippers on his jacket, zippers on
his sleeping bag but no problem with the
zippers on his pants thank goodness!

Over the years I went to a lot of N/H
scout campouts near and far and had a
great time. Usually in regular camp grounds
that had an area for group camping where
we had water on tap and toilets!
That was only for weekends though.
I have to say I enjoyed the break from
being a wife and mother and doing
something that I enjoyed for a change.
I was involved long after Melanie dropped
out after the first year of Cadets.
I may not remember how to tie a knot
anymore but the training I had is still
with me after all these years.

I see that France has gone through and the
Portugal game starts in half an hour.

Lorna phoned me last night to inform me that
we ARE having a N/H 4th party in her front yard.
Now I have to think of a dish to take and lend
my big ice chests. Her enclosed front yard has no shade
so might have to volunteer my two 9' umbrellas plus a few chairs
on Wednesday. Last count, about 15 have RSVP ed out of 24 possibles
As usual there are always drop-ins.
A pair of new neighbors from down the street have been invited. one
is Indian and the other Canadian so Our multi national tribe is growing
even further. There is another street party two streets away but you have
to donate $20 per family for that one so they can have a bouncy castle.
Also NO alcoholic drinks on public property. We have a BYOB policy.
(its always on private property for ours).
Nobody drives as we all live in walking distance of our homes!
Well, must away, the cats are giving me the evil eye so better feed
them before the game. TTFN

 what's Carole got her tongue hanging out like that for?    affraid   Oops ....sorry been out, went to Palmers and saw the assistant who's having the book,  so that's that done....she said "Wow I'm set up now"    we also had nibbles....me a side salad and a    

We wouldn't let Benjie off the lead.....I'd be worried he would just shoot off after another dog, bird, cat etc.....now Nessie never leaves Susan or Matt's side,  talktohand  Benjie likes to also explore   "Mmmm where's this path going to?"   Mad       Though when he was a puppy he was really good at coming back at puppy school and we thought we'd cracked it.....until one day he decided to go  trotting after these other dogs, and the owner of the dogs had to grab his collar, second time he went exploring down a ditch, though first going through a hedge.   Mad     the vet asked if he'd been to puppy school....I told him he was really good then, came at every call.....until he decided exploring was more fun.

Oh yes......drinks  there you go

BTW no bugs to bite you where they go camping......it's all very civilised,  no hitching a tent in the middle of an overgrown field, not like it used to be.

Sorry late on parade today ,did have a sleep in until 6am
but when I opened my saw a message from my bank
as I had forgotten to cover our car insurance payment
WHY NOT one more thing headbanger
Yesterday while I was out doing the shopper while both
Barb and Blaine were here the first store I went into I FORGOT to put
the disability card on the dash and when I came out they had stuck me with
a $150 ticket for parking in a handicap space ,so had to run to the police station
and explain that it was not hanging from my mirror as normal as it kept falling
down so had it behind my visor and forgot to take it down ,,,,
Anyway nice police man allowed me to get off this time ,so it was just something
that I forgot as I did not even check my bank balance yesterday otherwise
would have seen it was lacking in funds
But nice lady at Chase said I had enough time to deposit $$ with out a penalty
actually until Monday at 11pm EDT but the temps are going to be WORSE from Sunday
all week feeling like 100+ even here along the shore line so trying not to go out
if I do not have to .....so used the ATM this morning before the bank opened

Was already 76f at 6am have all the blinds drawn fans going and A/C in the kitchen
on low for now

My sister text me that Henry got loose yesterday while they were putting
the bins out ,normally he stays with them and comes back when called
but he took off down the entry and into the road and almost got hit by a car affraid
two men helped Wendy grab his collar as Wendy had gone after him while Derek
had gone around the front in case he went that way
I have told her I did not like it when they have let him loose
in these fields /parks as I do not think he is trained enough to respond to
them so she said they will have to watch him more now

Oh I am SURE camping is different now a days Vicky but not for me
really as the "bugs " love me too much NOW with out being outside
for them to chow down on me......

Anyway Bond save me a prawn .... What you doing today Vicky
Gil is laying in bed starting to watch Argentina Portugal on later at 2pm
our time
A good friend who lived two doors down from me while growing up whom
I called Aunty Molly moved to South Africa in the 50's as her husband was
an engineer and helped build some airport there back then it was
called Southern Rhodesia they had no children ,she told us about
how many black servants she had etc
They never came back to the UK often wondered if they were OK as it was before
all the trouble out there then confused2

Well better see if my husband wants to get washed and up
Back later


MORNING MARGE

See ya later Vicky you doing the drinks today then confused2 run run duck

The restaurants at the camp sites are very good Carole.....though of course you can go and have breakfast/lunch or dinner in other restaurants near the camp sites. ......and of course the showers at the camp sites are really good now,    It's nothing how it used to be.  

True Margaret they should have got the death penalty but as you say we'd signed that away.....or Jack Straw did, the idiot.        

When David and I got married we'd talked about going to South Africa, one of his mates had gone there and had sent us photos of the house and details of his job....they were crying out for Civil Engineers,   but Janet (David's sister) said "Mum wouldn't be pleased and what when they're both old and need the family around?" so we stayed....oddly enough when David's Mum became ill Janet moved to Somerset.....so much for "They'll need the family around"  Mad

Though the "Whites Only" signs wouldn't have pleased me,     I would have ended up being arrested.Shocked       "Why can't she sit here with me?"  

Any horlicks please Bond?

I love dommie dommie Carole, used to play it with my Gran and then of course the kids and then the grandkids......well when they were younger.

Someone should be happy to have it for £40 quid
Bond as it looks from your photo to be in good nick
The one Spencer bought is HUGE and they used to quite
a bit down at Seaside park last year and placed it over
one of the large long tables that are down there that
seats about 8 people and everyone was in it playing dommie dommie
He has not taken it out this year though confused2
Just sat on the telephone  ANOTHER 2+hrs on hold to the State
again asking if their IT dept have sorted my account out yet
actually got to speak to a supervisor who said he could not help
but to call back next Thursday ....confused2

Spencer's ex boss called HIM saying they were close but have not made
a decision yet confused2 {seems he and his son who manages
the office now were going to discuss it ).....

OK so I have had enough for one day ...
Speak tomorrow xxxxx

I remember the moors murders.
Peter and I were at Cranfield then.
(we were also there when the "Great
Train Robbery " took place not far from
Cranfield)

They should have both got the death
penalty for that but UK had abolished
it as cruel and unusual punishment.

Its a funny thing about switching countries.
When we left in 1966 we thought it would be
for a year as Peter was on a work visa and I and
the kids were on extended visitors visas.

Peters specialty was Laminar Flow which he had
been a research fellow of at Cranfield after he got
his degree. Northrop had a similar program and
Peter wanted to get on it, Unfortunately it got
cancelled before we arrived but the company
wanted to keep Peter in their employ "just in
case". That's how we got our green residents
cards. We kept putting off coming back as the 70s
was a time of such chaos over there and there
was no work in Peters field anywhere in Europe.
Kids were in school by then so we settled in
for the long haul. We came over on visits regularly
to see relatives and friends and they all told us to
stay where we were.
We considered moving back when Peter retired but
by then we had a daughter who was a recovering
addict/alcoholic who needed us to help her with
her medical expenses as she did not have medical
insurance and she was living with Crohn's disease!
Peter had just been diagnosed with MS. which
is not treatable in many places by the NHS.
So we stayed here.

Sorry to be so late but Ian called just as I hit the power
button. It was to tell me that Jims hearing was just to enter
a plea, hearing is set for July sometime. I have had no word
from Melanie yet.
She told Ian that she will give Jim a year to prove he means
to be clean and sober but he will live elsewhere in the meantime.
Glad someone talked some sense into her.
the weather here is heating up inland, Palm Springs was 108f yesterday
and Death Valley was 117f! We are still in the 70s here at the coast
with dismal humidity. :-(

How could I have back in 1967 Vicky ?
I HATED it here then three kids under 7 yrs
no furniture plonked in a motel room one double
bed and a cot and Gil had to go to work the Monday
after we arrived on the Saturday in order to pay the
bill as the company he came to here was not footing it

Even after Gil and I broke up where would the $$ have come from
for airfares back home confused2  no it was I guess sink or swim
and I decided to SWIM and eventually got to like it here ......things
were a lot easier to get etc

Nice tent Bond how much you asking for it ? whats it sleep 4 - 6 ?
I will join you for breakfast though ......
BTW Vicky 'Camp site restaurant " out in the woods funnytvprog funnytvprog funnytvprog

Did the shopping and its NASTY out there glad to get home

Spencer had his eyes tested this morning will be wearing specs
bifocals as he can see long distance like me but blurry up close

Keep thinking its Saturday today ..... confused2

I see Marge in the wings so will be back later  run  run  run  run

I was thinking more along the lines of when you'd only been in America a few years Carole.......I wouldn't expect you to come back to England after you'd re-married Gil. America had become your home.

talktohand if you want me to sleep the night in a tent Bond then I want a modern one. run run run run with a proper camp site run run run you could cook the breakfast though if you're not taking me for a lovely breakfast at the camp site restaurant confused2

Morning Vicky going to get dressed now
before Barb arrives already given Gil his pills
as he needed to "pee" a while ago so figured
do it while he was sitting on the commode

Sorry Vicky REALLY do not remember the story confused2

As to thinking about coming back to the UK talktohand no
been here too long now as Gil pointed out when we hooked back up
in 1995 I have been here LONGER {then} than I had lived in the UK
was only 24 when we arrived ,and as much as I would have loved to
have visited the more I like the way of living here and do not think I
could put up with some of the things we take or granted that you
have to put up with like Dr's etc nono NO this will be my final
resting place hot or cold
Sometimes one just NEEDS to have a MOAN

Be back later run run run run

Another lovely day......and is moaning about the weather confused2 a couple of weeks ago she was moaning about the bad weather "We should be having some sunshine by now" sigh!!!!

funnytvprog I think that's funny Bond.....Mrs B cheering the other sides goal. I didn't watch it I went off with my book, did get a drink at half time and say to David "How are we doing?" to be told nil nil....."Not missing much then?" ....and back to my interesting book. Bond get it....."The Angel" by Katerina Diamond. I'd give you this one I'm reading but I've already promised it to an assistant in the Big Palmers.....though she'll put 50p into the Charity box.....MacMillian Nurses, when I take my books in a number of them make a dive for my carrier bag and hunt through them....this assistant likes these type of stories & I mentioned it to her the other day "If it's good I'll pass it onto you" so I'll put it on one side and give it to her or I'd have given it to you.....didn't imagine it would be such a good story for a male reader as well. Sorry.

But Carole it was on the TV, radio, all newspapers....and EVERYONE was talking about it, and their photos were everywhere. AND I didn't read newspapers or watch much TV either. I'm gob smacked.

It's so much different camping these days though Carole......nothing like it used to be. I remember going with my mate Janice and her parents when I was 10....hated it, but then it wasn't the same as it is today.

Didn't you ever think about coming back to England Carole seeing how you hate the hot weather so?

Well back later.

OK Bond if your say so I would
have to have Miss Vicky take a peak in
order to verify your legs funnytvprog
So your camping days are behind you @
cannot say I blame Mrs B though I only did
it once and HATED it

Well I am thinking of emigrating to Alaska
or Iceland with what the weatherman is showing
on the TV ..bad enough here at the shoreline but
inland temps will be from now till NEXT friday around
95f proper temp probably feeling like 100/105 with
the humidity fan fan fan fan fan fan
NO nono  NO nono  NO nono

Its like its hit us ALL at once NASTY unless you enjoy
that kind of heat and how anyone could is beyond me confused2

Gil had a good night at least he kept his oxygen tube on
his face ....
I am thinking I might do the shopper  today while Barb is here
and Blaine is home as hot as it is now after today its going to get worse headbanger
Hate to go on as it seems its either too much snow or too HOT
no happy medium
Temps right now at 630am are already 68f we should end around 87f
he is saying as we will get any breeze off the water

CALGON TAKE ME AWAY Do you remember THAT ad on TV lol

OK all I will say is  GOOD MORNING LADIES
BOND DRINKS on the HOUR LAD run run run run

Honest Carole they are not burnt its just built up over the last weeks
Today is a bit of a mixed day Im looking to put the family tent up to take a photo to put it on sale as mrsb says she is never going camping, the kids don't want it, it is a old standard and heavy tent not like the light weight ones that the kids have today
The sun has just broken through in east but still grey in the west
Breakfast indoors me thinks and its cornflakes and cold milk toast and marmalade Coffee tea orange juice and L&L Back later
I think they have just said that grass fires have started outside you home town Vicky?
A road in Nuneaton is closed (missed the name) due to a police closer?

I would have thought having 2 children would have had you taking more notice of the story Carole.     ....Hindley & Brady never got their freedom.....they would have been linched.    It's always been a big story.......they were as evil as can be,

As you say Carole a job is a job.

Gosh you most remember "the Moors Murders"  Carole   Myra Hindley and Ian Brady killed 5 children between 1963 & 65.....aged 10 years to 17 years.   Hindley went to prison for life Brady  criminally insane "Ha!" no he wasn't he was just evil, as was she, anyway he went to a high-security mental hospital    One body was never recovered Keith Bennett and he's still there, somewhere.        .policemen & detectives cried hearing those little kids being abused (they taped everything while they abused the kids)  terrible.      Saddleworth Moor is a moorland in North West England it is in the Dark Peak area of the Peak District National Park.

Peter and I saw the Mama Mia stage musical
in London quite a few years ago now.
It was matinee so was full of grandparents
with their grandchildren ,it was fabulous!

Carole I am not religious either as too often
had theology rammed down my throat also.
Through Al Anon I have discovered a personal
contact with a higher power that does not
involve any man made rules.

I am a moral person anyway so was Peter.
I am tolerant of other peoples beliefs as
if you read any of the tenants of other
religions you find that they are not that
different from each other. Its the people
who twist it into what they want it to be.
My higher power is not your higher power,
we each have our own.
The word God is used in our program as
being the God of our understanding or
higher power.
The King James version of the 23rd Psalm
is one of the most inspiring prayers
as it gives one courage to face whatever
happens in our lives. I know I do not walk alone
I have a higher power beside me.
I do not normally share my inner beliefs as
people think I am in a cult!
I am not!
Its 25 years of sharing my life story in a meeting
and hoping it helps someone who needs to hear
they are not alone.
All we can ask of God is to guide us , his will not
ours. We rarely get miracles but even small ones count.

I got a text from Jim yesterday and I think he is
going to watch the England game today , he asked
what time it started, only snag is it might be on a different
channel for him than mine is.
All I could tell him was to try a FOX channel on his system.

Its back to a dreary start here along the coast staying in the
low 70s but the sun is trying to break through.
Humidity is still high so with windows cracked open and fan
on it is bearable.

Its my meeting tonight, our numbers have been small of late
but program teaches us to be available for anyone in need
of a shoulder to cry on. All we do it share our stories which
help someone get a better handle on what they are going through.

Just got enough time for another mug of and an
English muffin before the game starts. TTFN

Well I started a message but left it as
Spencer just went to see his old boss
at Speedy Muffler where he worked for 14 yrs before
going to the service station ...he wants him to work both
back in the shop as well as the office so if he {the boss needs to take
a day off he can as Spencer ran the office before }
Said he needs to talk it over with his son so even though Spencer
not really happy at going back there its a JOB ....
Also his nephew has agreed to loan him the $$ needed to pay up his car
and Spencer will pay him back ,David is a GOOD boy
So maybe a light at the end of Spencer's tunnel .....

He also {Spencer } said Brittany {his daughter} may have a new job
paying $23 hr ,she is a dental assistant right now so not sure what
it will be she is doing ....

Waiting on the nurse now ,Gil saw Japan lose and Columbia win
Looking forward to seeing England at 1pm
Sorry to hear about the fires Vicky where is that as you mentioned Moors

I said the same thing about Bonds legs Vicky

Back later

They're saying the fire on Saddleworth Moor will  go on for weeks Bond.....one of the farmers was saying they've no chance of getting all the sheep grazing on there to safety, you don't realise about the thousands of sheep on those moors.     Of course they've never found that young boy Keith who's still buried there.      The fire is seven square miles at the moment, they need the heavy rain.

So you're carrying on with my coach Bond.....good it needs it.

Are your legs red Bond?   nono Mad

Started another book....."The Angel"  Susan had passed it onto me.....and boy is it good so far.   by Katerina Diamond.

The storms keep coming in waves
Buddy retreated down onto the first stair
then after a BIG BOOM went down with Spencer
in his room ,came back up when it went quiet
only to run down AGAIN when the last front came
back through ,I even picked him up and held him
to try and calm him but he was having none of it
Might clear they are saying a few hours after 10am
then roll back in again for dinner time tonight affraid

Marge have heard the 23rd Psalm many times ,I am not
overly religious even after being taken to Mr Mayby's
church meetings from age ONE in Bell Green ,but when I got to be old
enough to have a choice I chose not to go any more
as my thoughts are "one does not have to GO to church
every week to worship or BELIEVE in God " and I have prayed
MANY times to him some things he answered others he did not

Yes Vicky trying to remember the good times unfortunately we
seem to have had bad ones more than good in BOTH our times
on the marriage roundabout together confused2

Corine just called to say she will come at noon to do the machine
as Gil is not even up yet as the Aid does not arrive till 9am

Have the A/C's on and the over head fan fan  as its MUGGY
GOD help us starting Friday when we are in the 90's  

Just showed the weather map we are almost as hot as MIAMI
they are 87 we are 82

Bond if you can HEAR ME keep the drinks coming run run run

Another lovely day sunny .

So you're a glam pus again Carole.......

Now that's what you should think Carole when you start to get mad at Gil just how short a time you *might* have left with him.  as Margaret said remember ALL the good times.....he's your soul mate Carole, you know that.      

We've got to nip out, maybe have a snack to eat and then run run run run  back into the garden for 45 mins.   I'm wearing my off the shoulder top Bond.  hem! hem!  and white cropped trousers......oh I love this weather.

Avatar is Susan & me in Clevedon.....having nibbles.

Carole, just take it one day at a time.
the past is gone and the future is in Gods hands
We only have today to cope with.
I learned my lesson in 2011 that each day from then
on was a bonus which lasted three and a half years.
The serenity prayer says it all,

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things
I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can
and the wisdom to know the difference.

The 23rd Psalm asks for the strength of God
to be at our side at all times through thick
and thin.
I remember all the good and funny times
Peter and I had, not his final illness.
I miss his arm around me and holding hands
but I feel his spirit is here with me still.
I wrap his dressing gown around me as if he
is holding me and it is a comfort.

Got a text from Jim this morning, nothing much
but I know he wants the judge to have a good impression
of his effort to start clean and sober living again.
He said himself it was the wake up call he needed.
There are no promises that this will work out any
different than the last time or the time before that.
Where he is now he gets urine tests every day and if
he screws up he is out on the street!
So a lot more at stake this time.

Well freshly quaffed per Fran at "Finishing Touch "
Spencer has to reschedule to go to the agency as the
man he was to see {different personnel take care of
different types of work}is not available , in the mean time his old boss
at Speedy Muffler were he worked 14 yrs called telling him to
come talk with him ,only trouble being Spencer does not 'REALLY '
want to work for him again as I know what a PIA he can be
but right now he may have no choice needing a job and $$

His biggest concern is losing his car as he only owes three payments
and after paying $44.000 for his car 5 yrs ago it would be a blow
to lose it over $1700 ...

Also Carmen has basically sent him home as she said while
Spencer is there SHE does not feel like selling her jewellery/perfume etc
as she wants to stay home with him ,so he just said I will be "home"
for a while  ,I said it was HER who wanted him to move in with
her ,this being before he got laid off ,but as he said she paid for everything
and they used her car saving gas in his ....ah well maybe something
will come up ...

Marge also hope no news is good news in ALL ways for Melanie
Your getting stuck in there I see regards cleaning and sorting

Fran asked me today how did I feel knowing Gil would leave me
sooner than later ,I told her when he acts up I am mad at him
but then at times when I am alone thinking about whats to come
I feel the crying  welling up and know it will hit me
but just as you have done I will suck it up and get on with my life confused2

The sun disappeared  here &  its breezy but OH SO HUMID even though its only
72f and 63% humidity it feels SO MUCH hotter

Waiting on the Hospice nurse to come demonstrate what she wants me to do
with the new machine

So will be back if I can ,Gil watching Brazil on one channel and Switzerland
on the other run run run

I had a golliwog Margaret when I was growing up and I loved my Golly.....used to collect the badges from the jam as I got older also.     We have it over here, trying to change history, as you say you can't, it happened, we learn from it.....or should.

Having a bit of a thing on FB with people who
don't understand that the Golliwog on Robertson's
Jam had to be taken down as it is symbol of
an old attitude about black people both in appearance
and name.
Golliwog was a slang name for black people and the
picture is a reproduction of a B&W minstrel in
black face with a big white mouth.
I also loved it growing up as I was innocent of what
it represented but it is inappropriate in todays world
to have that on a label of a product being sold around
the world. So the company wisely retired it.

It has nothing to do with being PC.
In fact I am against the rapid growing tide of taking down
all statues of leaders of the south in the civil war and renaming
schools named after them as being an attempt to change and
bury history. Even sports team mascots like Redskins or Braves or Chiefs
are being pressured to change them.
Nobody has said anything about Notre Dames "fighting Irish" I see!
Slavery is still the 800lb Gorilla here in the States that no one wants
to deal with openly. Most black family names came from slave masters
that owned them. Its history, its a fact, its true.

Nothing from either of the kids or Jim yesterday so hope that no news
is good news. What a shock about Germany being knocked out of
the World Cup!
Made a start in the main bedroom but its going be like excavating a
historic site. So many layers to go through but todays objective it to
hang up all the jeans and trousers and divide the rubbish from the
ones good enough to donate.
Its dinner ladies tonight. By special request we are going back to
the Olive Garden again , seems some one has a coupon for a free
dessert if you order a certain item from the menu.
Well, break time is over again so must clock back in again. TTFN

It was hot though, talktohand she covered up and put the sun cream on.

Yes it's a shame Tracie lives so far away......Sad       Though Ian must have felt the same way when he was over here and his Dad was so ill.....and his Mum so worried, and upset.

Good luck to Spencer.

Morning Vicky .cute avatar funny how they
start off one color and end up different

No Tracie will not be coming any time soon
Vicky ,her Internship that she is having to
do with no income is not over until Aug 26
she is barely able to live right now using
money she saved knowing she would not
be able to do her    job ,baby
sitting a dog for a neighbor as they went
home to Europe for a month to earn a few $$
besides God knows what else  confused2

I think they both knew that her last visit might
be the last she saw him alive ,and yes I am sure
he is scared as the nurse said he still has most days
all his faculties and is aware of whats happening
and that he cannot do anything to change it  confused2

Also unlike you and David where your only 126 miles
and about 2 hrs :driver: away from Susan ,Tracie is 1,315
miles away ,that takes normally 20 hrs

Better get going Spencer spent the night as he has an appointment
at 10 with an agency to see if they have any jobs
He also got a number for British Citizens that help,
with what we do not know yet  confused2  
At least the State are paying for his health insurance
now he has ZERO income  headbanger

Back later  run  run  run

OH PS check this out I found on FB
about Bridgeport you need your speakers on

Yes it's hotting up Bond.

Been food shopper   so the fridgefood  is now stocked up.  

Is Tracie able to visit her Dad again soon Carole, he does seem to be so much calmer when Tracie is around.       Carole I think Gil is scared, his body isn't/can't do what he wants it to do.....he knows he's getting worse, and he's scared.

Ohhh I LOVED South Pacific Bond
♪ Talk about you and me ♪
Not sure how I feel yet as Mr B had another
bad night ,this time "MOOD" wise and it was
MY TURN to be blasted ,also refusing to take
the Tylenol I tried to give him as he was getting
warm again ,taking his Oxygen off and telling
me I did not want the responsibility of his DEATH
on my hands and that was why I was insisting on
him keeping it on headbanger
Did not lay down until AFTER midnight as I kept putting it
back on every time he pulled it off so not much rest at all
Should have given him a shot of Morphine as that is
what he needs when he gets like that ,but he probably
would have spit it out had I tried
He seems a bit calmer this morning after calling me
to say he needed the waitingloo ,and he took the Tylenol
So much for having a better night @ Vicky crying

Weather today saying goodbye to the lower humidity
as temps and that rise ,and saying hello tomorrow am
to possible DOWNPOURS ,and still saying the heat is coming
so I know where this Limey will be fan fan fan

Anyway please have a good day and enjoy what ever your
doing as you never know it could all change in the of an eye

Back later after Fran's run run run
