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. :-(

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 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

Good morning all from Atherstone a bit grey over here Yet but if its like the last couple of days it burns off and a hot afternoon in store
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.

Poor Buddy Carole.....awww!! catmilkbowl

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

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

No he wasn't keen on us having a puppy, nono "Oh no not a puppy" but then Benjie decided he was our puppy, placed his paws on David's knee where as David picked him up and put him on his chest and Benjie fell asleep....then David said "Oh it's up to you" both Louise & I were shocked, though Louise wanted me to have the smallest puppy "Gizmo" but Benjie had other ideas....even came to the door with us as though he was saying "Oi what about me?" that was 4 years ago.

David had the sprinklers on our lawns also Bond.....they needed it.

Hope Gil has a good night Carole.

Oh I KNOW he does NOW Vicky but
remember when you were first talking
about getting one funnytvprog
Saba was like that although we BOTH wanted
him from the moment we saw him and when
after I picked him up he curled into my neck
and went to sleep Gil said THAT IS THE ONE
as I had been looking at his sister  who was a
lighter coloring ,but after we got him home it
was "I love Mommy"  but " I love my DADDY MORE"
Guess it was the leader of the "pack" thing ,my vet
put it perfectly ,he said you may feed him as your the
bitch  but Gil is the  Alfa PACK LEADER confused2

Well Gilly asked about 2pm for a ham sarnie {no cheese}
which he ate along with another 9ozes of apple juice
but he has since been Sleep  not even watching the headball
that I put on in the bedroom for him as he did not want to get up today

The nurse told him to keep the oxygen on unless he comes out
in the living room and falls to easychair  then I can turn it off a while
as I told her when he has it on at night in bed I wake to find it
either completely off his face or the nose piece is in his mouth /lips
as he keeps taking it out his nose

Was a beautiful day here today low humidity and only 75f but
brilliant sunny  shine  ,going to change starting tomorrow though
clouds on and off  then rain Thursday with more humidity then the "HEAT"
arrives Friday some towns away from the shoreline could hit 100f
90's for us and humid   Mad Mad


Marge sounds like Melanie has made up her mind about Jim
too bad she feels that way if he is trying to change this time

OK so if Bond can tear himself away from his shady area ,I will take
a LARGE L & L please .....my sister said they are saying their weather
could change Sunday

Don't forget the cherries Vicky they are BIG N JUICY this week
Speak tomorrow run run run run

Thickened apple juice as quick as I pour it its gone

Done dinner small red potato's around two boneless
pork cutlets that I doubt he will eat with
carrots and gravy ,so I am going to lay down on the bed with him
for a while and watch the next FIFA headball game

Taking a rest from Footy this morning.
Going to plumb the depths of the Master bedroom
today. while doing some washingbasket
I am going to bring out the box and bags that I started
to fill weeks ago, into the hallway and get cracking on
boxing up and bagging all the stuff to be donated
and trashed.
I can hang up all the jeans and pants first then sort out the
dresser drawers again as I see that I am hanging on to too
much stuff again.
Its my own fault for putting all the clean clothes on the bed to
be put away and then not getting round to it.
At least its not manual labor as I won't be moving the bed
anytime soon.
I can now have the summer fan on the furnace on as I turned off
the heater part for the summer finally.
Talked to Melanie yesterday, she seems to want to get Jims stuff packed
up and out of there ASAP. and is still talking about divorce.

I did ask her what part she thinks she played in the situation and admits
she is such a program person that she was bound and determined to put
him on the right road to being cured. She forgot she was one of the lucky
ones whose first attempt took straight away. Others are not so lucky and
need several attempts to succeed and others just never get it.

I don't know which Jim is of the last two but he did get a wake up call
this time round. She agreed with me that he would never do harm to anyone
but himself if he failed again. He has a new sponsor where he is so it
will give him a fresh start if he wants it badly enough.
Melanie's group are holding a fund raiser with a spaghetti dinner and raffle
at some ones house this week end to raise money to pay some of her bills
and the word has been spread, many of her clean and sober pupils have
been calling her from far and wide to keep her spirits up.
She has all the information she needs to deal with the credit cards and bank
accounts but is having a hard time waiting for the hearing to take place.
I am holding off making any decisions until then as I don't want to give
Melanie the idea that Mum is going to come to her rescue again with $$$$

Its a problem when people cannot move around much to expel the congestion
in their lungs. A treatment with the nebulizer will help. I have had only 2
occasions over the years when I had to go to urgent care for treatment with
one for my asthma.

Its neither one thing or the other weather wise here, sea mist is hanging around still
but the sun is trying to break through. Mid 70s are forecast for the rest of the week.
Humidity is still high though.
I have five days left of June to reach the target I set for myself on actually loading
the car and getting rid of stuff. There is enough to call the Vietnam Vets to come and
collect some stuff as well but it needs to be set out in the driveway for pick up.
If I do it the night before the scroungers will be in it Toot-sweet .
Oh well, I will find a way some how. TTFN

Well decided to run out after checking Gil was ok
to mow the grass  hoover Just think lawn mower
as its such a nice morning and we have
coming Thursday
While out {did back n front in 40mins} Corine telephone
so called her back ,she wanted to know how Gil was today
and would either come by before she went out on her rounds
or if not she would stop by before 1pm
She said she might have to order a Nebeulizer {spelling} treatment
to get some of the stuff he obviously has on his chest  out so would call
his GP
Corine lives close by us which is nice to know as she said I could
telephone  her any time ....

Vicky that is cute {your Avatar} as I seem to remember a time
when a certain husband did not want to HEAR about you getting a dog

Ok so I am done for today ,as I told Corine I try to get everything I need
in the days Barb is here so I do not have to go out Tuesday/Thursday run run run
