I am back ,went all the way to the Big Y shopper
picked up enough meat to last us MONTHS ,and the stuff
I needed to make a "tea loaf " ,and got gas on the way home
then instead of going to the check cashing store where I get
the money orders for the landlady for the rent ,my 4x4  turned
itself around and came HOME ,did not realize it till I was up and unloaded
the groceries headbanger headbanger  ah well tomorrow is another day
not due till the 15th and she has not been again in three months confused2

Have some steaks marinating for tonight's dinner as last night I made
Veal Parmigian with rice and peas and carrots ...

Its dry out there but not cold or even cool like it felt yesterday
temp on my cell phone is saying 68f 88% humidity confused2

Your right Vicky Chelsea would not know the difference ,but what she has
tasted no matter WHERE its made she likes it ,she is very PROUD
that her grandparents and family all come from the
and her fiancee James tells EVERYONE that Chelsea's grandparents have
ENGLISH ACCENTS {well Gil's was stronger than mine }
mine changed mainly because of my job for 30+ years where unknowingly I started
to sound American ,because  of people saying "HUH !  what did you say"?
and yet I still get told I have an accent HERE,but when I went home
I was called a YANK Rolling Eyes confused2  

Well I have done all I am going to until its time to throw the meat
into the air fryer ...so back later

Umm I see Bond, your complaining ONLY because of the weather @ OK

Well it's wet out there.

Chelsea wouldn't be bothered Carole she's American......but a lot of us over here don't buy it any more because they moved to The Netherlands....and from what I've heard it doesn't taste how it used to any way. AND they've got the nerve to still put OUR buildings on the bottle as though we still made it. nono

That's one thing about Trump he does put America first.....wish our Government put Britain first and STOP WAVING THAT WHITE FLAG.

Hi Bond.......so you've got your work list until the end of the year from the boys then? Well it keeps you off the streets. Smile

17 years, it doesn't seem that long ago, I remember seeing the first plane going into the tower and then the second one turning. Mad all those poor people and what they were going through.

Thanks Bond. I do like that song.

Good morning all, yes Carole they have been showing the hurricane out at sea heading for land fall it looks nasty where ever it hits
No I like doing the work and would be grumpy if they got anyone else in to do it, they are only a couple or three half day jobs so its just pick your day but in would of been nice in the sunshine
VICKY, Kylie and Ric Astley have just been on the radio singing "never going to give you up ' from the party in the park, you can see it by hitting the Red button on any BBCtv channel it sounds great
Its raining here so Im in the garage working

Morning Bond ....we are supposed to have a bit better day today
not so much rain and the temps are rising along with the humidity
that disappeared the last two days ,but going back up into the EIGHTIES
CRAZY weather for sure ,then one weatherman last night was saying having
three hurricanes in the Atlantic at one time is an indication we could get a
BAD winter

Feeling for the people in the Carolina's for sure as its looking like "Florence"
is going to SLAM into them as a Category 5 Hurricane   the highest
we can get  140mph sustained winds when it hits Thursday at 2am and
they could get 40+ INCHES of    

,I text Linda last night asking about her daughter who they just saw
to ask if she was going to be OK as the Governor of South Carolina has
ordered the entire shoreline to be evacuated ,she said Georgette is not
near the water ,but they were saying this is SO big it will be destructive
up to 100 miles away from the shoreline especially with the flooding .

Even us here yesterday due to the higher than normal  tide plus a full moon
the two streets Beach Dr & the one  Marnicks sits on "Washington Parkway"
was closed due to the sea flooding the road so they. and any guests would
have been stranded  as they sit RIGHT at the edge of the sand normally
when its high tide the sea does not come up to the building as there is
a small beach I would say about 75ft wide ,but in cases like this the sea
has obviously come all the way up and over onto the road    

OK so whats on today for everyone ,Spencer asked if I could get
more of the Italian brand of Land O Lakes American cheese from the
deli as it was very nice on his sarnies ,its a sharp cheese and I do
not normally make their sandwiches with it but made them as a change
now I have started something  funnytvprog
He is giving me the $$ to buy it he says  
Other than this I have very little to do today except plan dinner

Remembering  911 can it already be 17 yrs since that AWFUL DAY
I can remember it so vividly as I was still working but at home
that week as we were doing  one week on one off as our company was
dying , could not believe what I was watching as the morning news was
on and showed the plane hitting the first tower right behind the anchor
on Good morning America , Diane Sayer  Shocked

Any who I shall be back later on
MORNING LADIES

Bond you need to put your foot down   ,not nice the way your sons
are using you as cheap labor ,especially as your weather is cooling
plus your not getting any younger lad  

Bet the pilot in your Avatar could see you    
good shot well done {assuming you took it} right ?

Good morning all from Atherstone a bit grey over here but the nice man says it's warm out for the time of year
You would think the lads would know by now but they have both asked if I can get a couple off outside jobs done before the winter! Well the winter is here some days, and I would sooner work in the sunshine
Breakfast and it's cornflakes and hot milk toast and marmalade Coffee tea orange and large L&L
Back later

You'll sleep tonight then Bond.

You do know HP sauce isn't made in England any more don't you Carole?     It's now made in The Netherlands.       Though they've still got The Houses Of Parliament on the sticker....of all the nerve.

NOT A FRIENDS WATCHER...... affraid   Oh I used to love watching Friends.

Well Chelsea arrived at 930 instead of 1030
said if she had stayed home any longer she would
have easychair  as her cat Madison likes to climb
on her chest and it puts Chelsea to Sleep , anyway we
decided to leave earlier being as we were not exactly sure
where the office was ,I mean we had the address but had
not been there before ,she has a GPS on her phone and instead
of going I-95 it sent us on the Merritt Parkway ..raining but not
too bad going down and we arrived at 11am and parked in
a free parking garage right across the street that was SUPPOSED
to have been for the Stop N Shop  shopper only  located there ,but she
was planning while I went in to go back there as her cat needed
some dental treats ,but when we went in they said Chelsea could
WAIT inside and there were only 6 people ahead of me so we were
in and out and back on the Merritt tut sweet ,after getting Madison's treats
of course
Coming home was worse as by now the rain had picked up
along with the wind and the spray was bad from the cars ,but I
SURVIVED ...she was  funnytvprog  all the way down as
I made her slow down a LOT to how she said she NORMALLY
:driver:
I said she should have gotten a  sign saying "SENIOR ON BOARD"
like you see some have saying "BABY ON BOARD"

Talked about her grandad and how he died ,and I found I was able
to mention her Mum with out her telling me not to talk about her
a few times ,so that to me was progress
She also showed me her wedding dress ,its really beautiful

She also told me about a UK Gourmet shop that her fiancee found near
where Gil used to work so we called them and she will run me
up there Sunday if the pork pies arrive ,and they also have
BANGERS $8 a pound    

Chelsea is hooked on HP brown sauce after having it when she
lived with us in Stratford ,so James gets her some there every so
often {she likes cheese and brown sauce sarnies }  funnytvprog

Marge glad your cooling down and hopefully have the ANTS at BAY
and well done on your cleaning  cheers

Vicky why is Bond  easychair ,what did LONG TALL Mary DO
do to him  ,or should I ASK    

BTW ME  WHAT !!!!   while Chelsea :driver:  talktohand
you have to be JOKING RIGHT ,I was too busy watching the other
cars and the highway  

Oh and sorry was never a "Friends" watcher confused2
 I am hungry

Always liked "friends".
Lisa is such a talented person,
nothing at all like the act we saw on TV.
She has carved a niche for herself
behind the scenes. She was one of the
people behind one of the popular
ancestry shows in America.

I am so proud of myself for what I got done
yesterday. Its funny to start cleaning from
the floor up but that's the way it had to be.
I now have islands of shelves to dust and
start removing a lot of the "stuff"
No sign of the ants last night or this morning
but it did turn much cooler last night.
Its 67f now with a slight overcast, going up to
76f later. Humidity is still high at 86% but
with the cooler temps its not so bad. I still
sweat but in my rest periods I cool off faster.

I have a modern square coffee table with a
glass insert in it which we only used to put the
Xmas tree on so it can be seen from the local area
The glass insert will just fit the top of a square corner
table in the living room so will put it on there and store
the wooden frame in the garage till I know what I am
going to do with it.
I won't be putting up a 7ft tree
any more but instead do a swag garland above the
free standing cone shaped fire place and put all the
ornaments on that. they come with lights already
built in. I do have two small trees that can stand on
a side table and use the smaller decorations on those.
(I won one of them in a raffle)The other was a table
centerpiece which I won by having a certain seat number
at one of our Xmas parties!
It won't be this year as I won't be here but can put a
few things out like the door wreath. It looks
very scrooge like when mounted over the brass
lion door knocker.
I have only today to get as much done as I can on one side
of the den, the other sides will have to wait a few days.
I will still leave small sections with Peters items in it
in each room. Just not as many as there are now.
Now if the ants will just leave me alone!

Its so quiet now the local kids are back in school.
They are constructing a new building right at the front
of the school where the old admin. building was.
Lots of rumors abound about what it will be used for.

Lorna is back at her usual post on the corner with
her "Lolly Pop" .
I feel a bit achy from all the hard work but it feels
good to get my back into making a room look like a
room not a storage shed!
Its a quick breakfast of cereal and fruit, I have
banana, blueberries and raspberries on
mini shredded wheat, or I could have whole grain
cheerios. TTFN

Have fun then Bond.......he will.  Smile

Didn't you ever watch "Friends" Carole and Phoebe singing (sort of funnytvprog  )  the Smelly Cat song?    Susan was just taking off Phoebe as she does it.        The set of the series "Friends" is touring around various Countries and it's in England at the moment....it was in Bristol when Susan and her two work mates went to look around.

Can you  in the car Carole?   if so it would take your mind off the :driver:

Well been to  .....it's chilly out.

I remember when the bikers pub in the town was taken over and turned into a "Yuppie's" pub....the owners banned the bikers saying "We don't want your sort in here" little did they realise you never had any trouble with the bikers, unlike the "Ya Boo" yuppies as the owners found out to their cost.

Always a pretty sight for me Bond.

The Harley motorcycle clubs from the
whole San Francisco area do a run
each year from the fairground in Sonora
to the Indian reservation up the mountain
several years ago we were stopped in traffic
and the traffic light turned off while nearly
2,000"hogs" left town altogether.
What a sight that was.

I am taking a break at the moment.
I emptied out the trash and recycle bin and
wiped it inside and out and put fresh bags
in it besides washing the floor before putting
it back in its place. Took the rugs outside and
moved stuff around so I can damp mop the
whole floor in there with Pine-Sol disinfectant.
I still need to go shopping but the floor can be
drying while I am gone.
Keep the L&Ls coming Bond.

Good evening all, a fantastic day in the streets of Atherstone, full of some of the most beautiful cars ever made
But the high light was the Lancaster fly over, low and very throaty almost as loud as the 50 Harleys that came into the narrow streets with tall buildings,
Time for drinks me tea coffee and L&Ls large L&L

Go get um Marge ,good  idea about
deleting the ant trail as a lot of people
are not aware that they lay a scent trail
when the scouts first go foraging

Vicky I know you said David only gives you
a % of your social security / pension ,as I said
if that is what you have been saving out of you
have done well....

So your visiting this time around ,did you ever touch
basis with Bev ,seems she has found her money pot  in her
other lady friend what's her name ?

I also gave my three an amount Marge ,Blaine is fixing his car up
with hjs, Spencer used his to catch up on his bills that he had fallen
behind with when his unemployment ran out before he got this job
Tracie got the same but she is BUYING this home and was carrying other
debts when she went back down ,plus has no one down there to give
her any support ,and I cannot see ANY of my kids wanting especially if
I have the means to help out ...

And yes good idea about Melanie taking in a border
I believe that was how Tracie was getting $$ as know
when she was flying she had some pilots staying over
trying to make ends meet

Just made a cup of chili threw in a couple of 40cal slices of bread and two slices
of very sharp cheddar cheese ,,and bingo lunch

BOND
L and L  Please

My pension Carole?   I don't get my pension it goes into the house keeping.....well I get £100 out of it a month.     By the time they're ready to start buying I'll have nearer £900 though I know my daughter she'll refuse to allow me to pay too much, but I'll do my best to get her & Matt to accept the money.

Oh I hope Tracie finds something soon.......what a worry for her, and you of course.

I've just  been nattering to Susan.....she had a lovely time with Louise, fantastic hotel, enjoyed the Spa and the meals and the shopping.     I was telling her about the things we'd seen in Next,        

Ok back later......oh  telephone    I'm popping round to hers tomorrow.

That's good then about the lodger and with Melanie knowing her.

I made sure that when Peters life insurance came
through I split it 3 ways and gave Ian and Melanie
each a third to use as they pleased.
Ian put his towards some dental work and Melanie
used hers to get some much needed repairs
done to the house.
I was at that point getting all the refunds for the
canceled African rail trip so could be a little
" Aunty Mame" for them.

Well, the ants were kept at bay for 24 hours but
they are back this morning using the same path
as yesterday!
I need to go outside and see if I can spot where
they are coming from but if it is the old termite
tunnel its not going to be easy. They were headed
for my indoor recycle and trash container in the kitchen.
so must be looking for sweet instead of water.
I also need more Windex as I only have the last of
the refill bottle in the spray bottle now.
I know I can get ant bait traps but I also have a full
spray can of ant killer with a long slim nozzle to get
in tight places. I need to take the large rugs outside
and damp mop the floor in there again to wipe out
any trace of the scent trail they laid down.
So much for the plans I had for today!

I got a call from Ian yesterday, he thinks he will be
coming over in Oct. sometime but its all up in the air
if he gets a job. He now has full face hair and has
a day long shoot for a very low budget film out
in Bexhill somewhere. its a kind of "Deliverance"
type film and he is one of three hikers who
seemingly have a hint of evil about them.
He says his beard is trimmed down now instead
of looking like a Canadian lumberjack!

He got a call from Melanie who tells him that she is
taking in a short term lodger for some extra cash.
Its a "she" and its someone she has known for
years who travels a lot and is down here from
Alaska for a short time.
He says everything seems to be settling down now
with Melanie and Jim but she says he has to be clean
and sober a year before she will let him back in the
house.
We both support the effort he is making right now
but its early days yet.

Its time for me to do battle with the ants again so
TTFN.

Wow that is nice of you Vicky,£700 @
you are being frugal with your pension ....
Whats her Dad going to do for them ?

I am right now keeping my daughters head above
water as after she finished her Medical Assistant
schooling and after applying to different Urgent Care
facilities ,she is of course wage less ,cannot go back to
her job as she has been out too long
and they probably replaced her any way ...the job she went
after while at school that would have been on the ground
at the airport and would have worked around her schedule,
never panned out confused2
I like to think her Dad would have been doing the same
and hope he is approving of what I am doing with the Insurance
$$ I am also going to save a portion or invest it in what ever my
grandson shows me or what he suggests ,as David has done the same
with his $$ ....smart grandson ...

Tracie said she has applied a few places and just has to wait to see
now

She called me earlier as she is also watching the weather closely
{has to with what she is living in ,like a mobile home no basement
so she was lucky the LAST hurricane that went through Fort Lauderdale
that it was not BLOWN away } and why when it gets too bad she
heads inland to her friends house in Coral Gables as theirs is a PROPER
house brick and mortar ...
Anyway she said for us to watch out and that one forming after Florence
called I think Helena ? could hit Florida ,this is HIGH Hurricane
season in FULL swing unfortunately,and yet ANOTHER is heading AGAIN towards
Hawaii.......

Bet Linda is concerned as her daughter whose partner just had
the baby boy live in North Carolina in fact Linda is THERE seeing
them as the baby is doing well but still in the hospital ,she comes back
Monday

Anyway back from the shopper watching NCIS Los Angeles
right now then might watch more of the Merlin series on Net Flix

Back later ,,,where's the drinks boy gone too then ?

Well the sunny didn't stay out for long. Went to Tamworth to look around the Next store.....was looking at various bits of furniture I could buy Susan & Matt for their home ....when the building is completed which won't be until the end of the year or January/Feb it'll take a while for the pans to be passed. ...I've got £700 saved up ....I do want them to buy something nice, something for the kitchen, settee or coffee tables OR something for their bedroom or dressing room. What ever takes their fancy. Anyway saw some lovely things but early days.....went to M&S and had an individual pizza and a cuppa

Morning Vicky /Bond
Going to be grey cooler and possibly
showers here today with very little if
any sunny ,this and the next two days
will all be the remains of Hurricane Gordon
that has been coming up over land after drenching
the Gulf coast etc
THEN Friday they tell us we have to watch to see what
Florence will bring us  
Tomorrow is DIFFIDENTLY going to be NASTY lots of
 and WINDY so
Chelsea :driver:  slowly as its been a while since
I rode with her {I did take her out a few times when she
was learning ,and if I picked her up from high school she
would hop in my 4x4  and ask to let her drive us home
before she got her license} but THAT was YEARS AGO ...
So hoping she takes after her Nan more as I am not a crazy driver
like I see some are I am NOT over cautious talktohand  don't
get me wrong but when Spencer drives me I close my eye eye
at times as he likes to go faster than his Mum likes nono

Your SO right about giving up friends Vicky I did that with mine
after marrying Gil in 1959 ,oh saw my best mate on occasion
at the baby clinic but we never hung out any more ,she also
was having children in fact that was WHY she got married
as she got pregnant when she was only 15 and even with her parents
permission had to wait until she was 16 to marry Tony,she was 16 July 28th
and Married Tony Aug 1st and had Tony Jnr Sept 18th ,but their marriage
survived as they are three children later still married and living in Aldermans Green
I remember when she took  Tony home the first time as he was
the typical "Teddy Boy" drain pipe trousers and a PURPLE SUIT ,her mother
had a fit but he was who Pauline wanted confused2  

Compared to Tony Gil was very mild as he always dressed in  light
colored sports jackets and black pants and my favorite
,the ♪ white trench coat ♪  prrrrr used
to BLOW MY skirt up I can tell you funnytvprog
I had wanted Pauline to be my bridesmaid but she would not being
a couple of months pregnant when we married ,she thought I
would not want her even though I assured her I did not care ...

We still exchange cards at Xmas and birthdays but that is it as she
apparently does not do the ,even though I know she could
if she wanted as she used to be a roving manageress for Woolworths
starting at the one in Bell Green where her and Tony  had their  rent

OK I have to get to the shopper before the rain arrives
so better swish my

Be back later


MORNING MARGE

Morning.....well it's grey out.

Didn't get back in yesterday my back started to play up and to sit on this study chair was no no.  

I don't think we went wrong Carole in those days you didn't go off for weekends with a friend,  even if you didn't have children.        was only saying on Friday  how pleased she was that Susan had never given her friends up when she got married as we all seemed to do.   I had said to Susan when she moved in with Matt "Don't give up your friends" and Susan had said she wouldn't, but then Matt wouldn't expect her to.     in his speech at their wedding Matt mentioned how much Susan had done to be with him, left her family & friends back in the Midlands.     Matt is a love though.      

Oh I hate flying ants as well Carole.....yuck,   and blue bottles. yuck yuck yuck.

talktohand  Oh my passport photo looks like a wanted poster, mustn't have a fringe, mustn't smile    confused2  well of course not you're only going on a holiday.

Yes lovely hair do Carole.  

Bond now what have we told you....."Don't touch"   anyway glad you found out what it was.

Have you ever read the Harry Potter books Bond?    I've got them all.....they are good,  better than the film, of course you can use your imagination when you're reading.

I'm enjoying my Kindle book still.  ....still got a way to go.

BTW the sunny is trying to get out.

Hello Marge ,ohh I HATE ANTS ,that
and Blue/Green  Bottle flies Mad
Over in the house in Stratford we used to get a swam
every year of the flying ants that would come into my laundry
room floor {keep in mind we made this and our bedroom
out of the attached garage } so they must have been in the garage
at one time under the concrete ,they make ME ITCH  just the THOUGHT

Glad your feeling better my stomach is a bit upset today have been
THREE times so far ,and all I had this morning was some
Pirates Booty popcorn as I did not feel up to any thing else

Had my hair done and she waxed under my eyebrows as I cannot
see to do them with out my glasses on ,and they will take my picture
Monday with my glasses off which to me is STUPID ,but hey confused2
that is THEIR problem
Fran back combed my hair to make SURE it stays in position till Monday
and SPRAYED A LOT of hairspray on {something I never do}talktohand
She said its either that or sit up two nights
All she charged me was $28 and that included a new product I picked
up that I can paint on my "skunks streak" as I call it ,that appears
when I need her services ,it comes off after shampooing
She has NEVER charges me full price so made SURE I gave her a nice tip $$
today ...

On the way home I picked up a chicken sandwich from Micky D's
as maybe its because I have not eaten things are traveling SOUTH  

OK so whats Vicky up to ,I am still trying to figure out what Bond is
yapping about SHARKS IN HIS GARAGE affraid

run run run

Well, I finally got an ant invasion
yesterday. Its the teeny black ones
and they came in waves across the
laminate floor in the back room.
I think they were using the old
underground termite tunnels
as they came in at the usual place,
right in the corner between the
back & side French windows.

They were headed diagonally across
the floor instead of marching round
the edge of the room like they usually do.
I use window cleaner in side the house
to smother them and use the ant spray
around the outside as a barrier. I cleaned
up most of them several times and left the
floor fan onin there to dry up the wet floor

Many people around LA have been complaining
that the ants have been invading all over.
Lorna lives right below the hill on her side of
the street and she has had them in her Catio
and in her kitchen for a week or more.

I looked and looked to see if there was an ant trail
anywhere outside while it was light in hopes that
I could spray right up to where they come up my hill.
No sign of one so it has to be the old termite tunnel.
which is covered by the foundation of the room
addition. I had better look again this morning as I might
have to barrier spray on that side of the house tonight
as they seem to attack only on that side of the house.

Carole, just say a prayer at the start and trust in your
driver. I am a horrible back seat driver as Ian could
tell you. Funnily enough I trust Melanie a lot more
to drive me anywhere. We used to call her the "car-
killer" in her teenage years!
The fog rolled in last night so now the humidity level
is higher than the air temperature!
Going to do my outside errands first so I can come home
and put on my working gear and sweat all day if I want.
Wish I could find my work head bands as they keep the
sweat out of my eyes.
Another item that got lost somewhere here. confused2

I feel a lot better today even after having a fitful night
worrying if the ants were getting in again.
At least they have kept away from the cats dishes this
time.
Its time for breakfast here and then off to get the
errands done so TTFN.

Morning Vicky ,,,,oh we are NOT THAT
cold YET
Mind you the cooler weather is going to be a nice change
from what we HAVE been getting

Not happy about the weather Monday when Chelsea drives
me to Port Chester NY ,as its forecasting cooler and WET with
WINDS ,I shall have WHITE KNUCKLES for as much as I
do not like driving on I-95 in ANY weather ,I HATE being a passenger
even LESS affraid

That must be nice having a "spa weekend " where did I go wrong
over the years confused2 ,although I guess with Susan not having
children right now it makes it easier to go and do all these things

OK Spencer gone ,he said last night when he came home
he applied ice to Carmen's shoulder and the Prednizone pills
are only for four days ,but they also gave her Ibprovin ? for the pain ..
Seems they are going to try therapy for her back being as she does
not want an operation confused2

Blaine up early as well as the guy who is fixing his car {he works
for the garage who did mine ,but does side jobs when he is off}
is I believe going to finish the work he started the other week as
Blaine had to get more parts ,then THAT should be OK as long
as HE CHECKS it and looks after it for a while ,Tracie GAVE him the car
for NAUGHT when she left for Florida and it was in good shape
but Blaine has a tendency to WAIT till something BREAKS before
fixing it instead of keeping it up Mad
Now he has the $$ I gave all three from the insurance so he is getting it
all done as I said THAT will be IT till I CROAK

So I must away have to throw a load in the washingmachine
Back later >>>>>>>

affraid  no Bond don't touch that.....    OR THAT.....oh crumbs what do we do with him.

It's really cold here Carole.....David put a sweater on this morning so you can tell it's cold.   Though I'm wearing a dress......maybe I should be in jeggings and sweater?   talktohand    Oh you never know it could warm up......Brrrrr!!

Susan's with her friend Louise today, they've gone to Birmingham to take a spa, have a girly weekend shopping .....they're staying at this hotel until tomorrow afternoon before heading to their own homes.

Whats Bond saying hes ODD
talktohand oh I see he has an ODD SCREEN
on his phone  funnytvprog
You have probably touched the bar at the top
of the screen Bond ,as you say your going to have to
fiddle with it  BOND the BAR THE BAR

Well at least you can post and see the screen ,the worst thing
{which is not} is looking at the doggie for a while confused2

Well its still DARK here at 619am ,and the temps only going to be
in the low 70's they are saying ,lets hope the sunny  can find
his way out today though as all that "DANK DARK" weather yesterday
makes one feel MISERABLE and tired

Hope Marge is feeling better this morning ,I had a bad dream early
this morning before getting up at 520am ,saw my old boyfriend
whom I was with after Gil and I divorced in the 70's ,then it ended
seeing Gil the way he was after he had just passed ,a memory that
I think will HAUNT me till the day I DIE Mad

Anyway better move my butt ,having Fran wash n blow dry my hair
at 1130 so I will at least LOOK presentable Monday on my Alien card
photo that will probably be my LAST as its good for 10 yrs Rolling Eyes

Back later

Almost no sign of me this morning,
I must have had a 24 hour bug of
some kind but seem to be over the
worst now.
Need a cup of tea with some honey.
Then I am going to take it easy for
a couple of hours.

still no sign of Vicky ,please don't
say she is not well .. VICKY YYYYYYY

Well been and purchased the new dryer ,got
a Samsung as that is what my washing machine is
having it delivered next Friday which is what i wanted
So Spencer can take out the old one

Talking of Spencer ,he text that he was at the ER
with Carmen as since Monday she had been having

some discomfort in her arm but that this morning
she could not extend it outwards from her side
So waiting to hear what they find ,I think myself
it's all connected to her back problems that she doesn't
want to have the operation for Sad

Dull day today very overcast
