Morning.

It's like us Margaret we've got a Victorian print of a church I used to walk passed going to school....I spotted it in an antique fair, along with another print of some fields with a cotton mill in the background....those fields I knew well.....also a painting of Ely Cathedral with a horse fair outside ....we bought it because David's family came from Soham, Cambs and his great granddad was a horse dealer and would go to the horse fair and buy horses....we've also got pen & ink sketch of Trinity Lane drawn in 1933.....it was demolished to form Trinity Street (which I've often had on here as my avatar).    We've also got two pen & ink sketches one of old Bishop Street and the old library & Cathedral in the other with horse & carts on the road      which we got from an antique art dealer who we've bought other things off.....he got to know what I liked and would let me know, he was the guy I bought the water colour  of Hadden Hall off which was painted by Lady Victoria Manners.   I just love them all.....I tell my kids  "Don't throw these into the skip when we've gone" and Rob says "Yep down to the tip they'll all go"   Smile

affraid Did I read correctly....Carole saying she wears a hat? .....ok ok you don't mean THAT sort of hat. Smile The only time I wore a woollen hat was watching Matthew playing football.

No Bond we're doing the big shopper tomorrow after we've dropped Benjie at the dog groomers.

Ok back later.....

Morning Bond
Asked Mark the same question about the plaque
that Marge talks about ,he said next time he is in
the City which seems like almost every day after work
he will also check ....
So its over the "hump" day so where's the hoover

Flipping cool this morning ,and only going to get colder
as the day goes on and the WIND picks up
Not a good thing with me having my hair washed and trimmed
as I will not wear a hat etc THIS DAY just having it done
Temps 35f right now but feels like 28f ,snow due to arrive
tomorrow around 3pm ,hopefully we will ONLY get a couple
of inches as they are saying ,the bulk will be further inland
away from the shoreline ... cheers

Spoke to Linda last night via telephone  was going to see
if  she wanted to go for breakfast tomorrow morning before
the snow arrives but sounds like she has a FULL dance card
two insurance men coming in the AM ,a 330pm meeting where she
works at her  daughter and SIL business ,and dinner with her cousin
,the only things that she says she may do is the insurance mens
visit if we get the white stuff ,so guess maybe NEXT WEEK confused2

Anyway away I must go ....Gilly's number ALMOST last night, 274 came
out his number of course is 723 ,so I would have gotten $41.50 for my $1
unlike the $291.50 last time ,I told him this morning CLOSE but no cigar

MORNING LADIES run run run run

I never lived there Carole.
My mother was raised there
and my grand parents and great
grand parents AND great,great
grand parents lived there.
They spanned over 75 years of
occupation at # 4.
My house is filled with paintings ,
ink drawings and photos of it.
It is my touchstone of who I came
from.
That's why there is supposed to be
a large brass plaque beside the vestry door
in memorial of Jacob Caldicott who
not only was a silk weaver but Clerk and Sextant
of Holy Trinity for many years before passing away
at the age of 82 or 84.
His son in law, Thomas Chapman took over his
church duties and when he retired , my grand mother
was allowed to live there after marrying and having
6 children (sort of a grace and favor residence)
with William Hitchins.
It was a toss up who had the most pictures displayed,
Peter with his Spitfires or me with my Priory Row pictures!
Thanks for thinking of me anyway my love.XX

Watching Long Last Family on tv God heart wrenching

Rain stopped ,dry for tomorrow's visit to Fran
but VERY chilly ,then here comes the SNOW
Saying 1 to 4" but should clear for Friday

Did a certain person call my name?
I am up M'lady.
Just made a BIG mug of Yorkshire
Gold tea.
Finally got my flu shot taken care of
and today after emptying all the inside
rubbish containers ,will put out the
big bins at the curb for tomorrow.
(they may be a day later as yesterday
was veterans day here).
I started up Big Red yesterday but he is
still dropping idle and stalling so I
will have to have him towed as its not
safe to drive.
I think I will pop in at the Gasser Brothers
and see when would be a good time to
bring him in.
When he comes back I can then take BB
in for her yearly check up at Hillside.
With that car its just a safety check really
to see if anything needs seeing to.

The Northern California wild fire death toll
keeps mounting with so many people unaccounted
for it probably will go much higher.
The Woolsey fire (the closest to us)has 2 known
fatalities so far which is amazing considering
how many acres have burned and homes lost.

There was a brief blaze along side one freeway
which could have been caused by a cigarette
thrown out of a car window. There are also lots of glass
fragments along the freeways and if the sun
shines on one in a particular way it could start a fire.
At least there is good CCTV coverage along the freeways
so maybe they will get lucky and find out how it started so
quickly.
Woolsey fire came really close to one of the prettiest university
campuses , Pepperdine . it is set on the side of a
hillside overlooking the ocean. It has one of the best
Law schools on the west coast.
With the winds dropping at night, the fire fighters are gaining
more containment but it will probably be weeks before its
really out.
Officials are already looking to the weather people to see
what kind of winter we will have as with burnt hills a lot of
top soil is going to come down in the form of mud if it
rains hard enough.
It seems that the little town of Paradise up north has
nearly been wiped off the map. We already have big businesses
here getting relief supplies ready to drive or be flown up there.

A sweet note is that when the first responders find a stars and
stripes flag,( Many fly them on private homes)they rescue them
and put them out front burnt or not so that the home owners
will find something to gather strength from when they come back
even if there is only rubble.
I think I need some more liquid, the air is so dry and not nice
quality yet so trying to stay hydrated. TTFN

 wow that's about what I was
when Gil and I married in 1959 Vicky

All I can say after running to the shopper
is one word ..GLUG .... as it's raining pretty heavy
still .....

Picked up 2lb of sliced Italian cheese as it was on sale
today $2 a pound LESS than normal ,also got a pound
of imported ham and half of Turkey breast ,because of
the 25% off coupon what would have cost just over $20
only cost me $15

Came back and prepared chicken thighs with a seasoned
sauce that you cook in the oven in one pan  with veggies
so waiting on those to cook and made a pot  of chicken flavored
rice to serve them over
Friday Spencer and I will be eating shrimp scampi as Blaine
does not eat home Fridays ,plus he will not eat shrimp anyway

Susan loves Ireland doesn't she ?

I think Mrs B just wants to keep your nose
to the grindstone BOND:funnytvprog:

Marge should be stirring by now
Back later

I am only light these days Carole, lost a lot of weight when I was ill and I just haven't put it back....I'm 7st 4lb.

Avatar is one of the photos I took when we went to visit Susan 2 years ago and she took us to ......Shepton Mallet where the Mulberry (hand bags) factory shop is, and the owner did this fantastic garden.

Thanks Vicky ,you can just see one of
the Bridgeport University towers behind
it as that is the start of Park Ave that runs
quite a few miles all the way to the north end
of Bridgeport
The University was taken over by Rev Moon many years
ago and a big up roar back then as there was talk of
brain washing & cult following etc ,but he really made the university
a lovely place that faces right onto Long Island sound
and they took over and converted a lot of the old Victorian
houses down that end and those became student housing
rather than build too many new buildings ...

Light yer OK duck run run run

Morning.....and another bright day here.

talktohand  oh a Dyson hoover  is expensive over here as well Carole, we bought ours about 10 years ago,  it was around £350.  

You having a busy day then Bond?         Mrs B doesn't smoke does she seeing how you seem to have your paint brush out often.......or is it just to keep you busy.

Yes I think of you often Margaret.

Had to leave off to talk to    on the  telephone  .....early or her to phone, she must be bored.

We had the bell ringers when Susan got married Bond....love the sound.....happy couple coming out of the church and the bells ringing out. Lovely.



Later......tap tap.....ding dong ding dong.

Morning Bond and there is only
one word to describe the weather
......           Y U K ......      ........

It will eventually stop ,but later today before
the temps drop and it will be VERY cold when I
go to get my hair trimmed /tidied up tomorrow

I need to go to the shopper  as well as they
offered a 25% coupon off deli meats etc for TODAY only
and so I did not get what I normally to on the weekend
,plus need a few more cans of catmilkbowl  food ,ah well
♪ hi ho ♪ hi ho ♪ its off to the shopper I shall goooo

Hope everyone had a good evening ,getting worse news
from the West coast up to 44 dead and 200+ missing
and only 25% contained
Some of our Red Cross workers left again yesterday
as they had recently returned from a Hurricane in Mexico

They also showed the fires edging towards the highway
with all the cars and trucks moving to the left as helicopters
dropped water on it trying to stop it jumping the road
SO VERY SCARY affraid
Your in my thoughts Marge even though right now your OK

Morning Vicky hoover  WHEEEEEEEEEE

Glad the pain in your shoulder has eased off Carole.   ......and that I'd jogged your memory.

That's what I've got Carole a Dyson hoover  

Over here we're going to be taxed heavily on red meat....   we've all  been told to cut down on red meat so they're smacking high tax on it.  

We had breaded chicken, mashed potato, leek & cabbage for our dinner.

Glad you had a good time also Margaret.

Pop the kettle on again Bond please.

Hi Marge glad you did not miss out

have such wonderful neighbors

Yes that is why I have left the carriers open
now so they can get used to them
Not sure if the get would have one big enough
to fit buddy in though ,so hoping so goes ok Friday
So far they have BOTH  been in the new one and yes
was going to put something inside in case of accidents

You would not know this morning by looking
out my window that it was anything but another
normal day here.
The fires are now among the worst in our States
known history.
There are still people unaccounted for but who may
have fled to a friends house outside the area
and cannot phone (as they are out) to let anyone
know that they are safe.
The high wind warning is still in effect so is the
high fire danger.
because of the high dewpoint we have had along the
coast and coastal fog our foliage has more moisture
in it than other areas.
In some areas the humidity level is under 10%
We have only had one wet winter out of seven
years of drought and that was the winter before last.

Seems the block thanksgiving was yesterday at Andy
and Joanna's house, I though it would be on Thanksgiving day!
Silly me, I was napping when Lorna knocked on my door
to find out where I was!
Hastily changed clothes and had a wonderful evening with
the best neighbors in town. Came home with a cream puff
when I could not eat anymore heavenly desserts.

Carol, you would not catch my cats going anywhere near a
carrier of any kind as they were trapped as kittens so
it only means one thing to them. I use cardboard ones
from the vet which they cannot see out of.
Remember to put an old towel or something in the bottom
as they tend to evacuate when stressed.
Buddy may take it all in stride , one never knows.

I have a full day of things I must take care of (as usual)
so I need to get started here.
TTFN

So Bond you let Mrs B loose @
and your Crystal ball shows Miss Vicky
returning soon from *cough cough*

I don't think I mentioned that I SPLURGED
last week and bought something I have always
wanted but could never afford ....a DYSON hoover
It's GGGGGGREAT as Tony the tiger says

Anyway have made dinner ,I sliced up the r/beef I cooked
but was a little tough so I layered it into a pan covered it with
sliced onions and gravy and cooked it slowly so it melts in
your mouth and serving it with mashed potato baby peas and yams

Be back

my Air Fryer ...
At least I will know where it is but shhhhh as
this morning after laying on my left side ALL night ,it seems to have
almost GONE cheers
I have since Gil died been laying on my right side a LOT ,that is
IN TOWARDS the middle of the bed where as when we lay together
I laid on the right side of our bed but after a short while I used
to have to turn so I was facing OUTWARDS with my back towards him

Anyway what ever it was I am pleased its eased up as that was
a hard pain ...........

I see the death toll Marge's side is up to 31 this morning  so
many being found in their cars as well trying to escape Sad

So your doing the  run today I see ,good girl

Weather as well as being cold ,THURSDAY  evening they are
talking a possibility of some light snow {right now} for Thursday night
changing over to rain on Friday  Mad  Mad

I do not have anything to do today so can concentrate on what to cook
for dinner ........
I also see a certain person is getting VERY CHATTY of late {well in
the PM's} as he was on AGAIN yesterday at 15.11 hours

It was a lovely night and a full night from 6:00 to:10:00 with the Army Cadets playing us in then Bulkington silver band playing songs from the war years finishing with Land of hope and glory .then food the place settings were just a knife and a table spoon you didn't need the
Knife .it was a big bowl of beef and dumplings stew that must have been bubbling away half the day as it was beautiful and the meat just melted .pudding was treacle sponge and custard really light sponge .all this time the silver band we're playing more quieter tuned
Then a singer doind more war songs th en the play about a young man from Mancetter and his family who wrote a poem from the front more band cadet playing and marching as they went off to wat some never retiring
And in the program of dead and those that did return there was a great uncle I didn't know I had

a regular soda bottle with hot tap water and put it

Hey there ,Marge wish I had seen that
about our blitz ,must have missed it Sad

Had Blaine rub more muscle rub on my shoulder
before HE left ,seems a "little" easier but taking it
careful no sudden moves or stretches or lifting

Buddy Loves his new pet carrier ,so hopefully
he will not fuss when he gets put into it on Friday
it came with stakes that you can anchor it out in the garden
as all three sides have open mesh sides so he can see out
if you wanted to put him out for a while ,I would not do that
though as that to me is teasing ,but its MUCH bigger than I thought
it was going to be

He must be in a lovey dovey mood today as he climbed
up onto my chest as i was laying on the love seat and lay
flat out putting his nose and head into my hand and went to Sleep funnytvprog

Any way have showered letting the hot water run on my back/shoulder
so watching NCIS Los Angeles right now and then I shall be off to BED

Bond any L & L's around

Vicky sounds like things are going along at Susan's new house
must be nice living in a small community like that ....

Speak tomorrow

That's the one thing which gets me mad when I'm reading about the second world war, anyone who doesn't know about Britain in the war would ....and do....get the impression that only London got bombed.  Mad

Just taking a moment while its half time
in the Manchester vs Manchester game.
It wont be 11am here for another hour
and a half so will do my I minutes silence
then.
Splendid documentary about the awful
bombing raid on Coventry on FB.
I had not seen it before.
Wish I had a copy.
I posted a " thought" piece as I call them
on one of the Coventry FB sites .
I was one of the lucky families whose
relatives came home from both wars.

The wind has changed so we are getting
more smoke from the wild fires coming
this way, it also makes it harder to continue
the water dropping planes in the air with
such low visibility .The big boys are doing
very low slow runs over rough terrain
so need radar and a spotter plane
to keep them on track.
The Paradise fire is now deemed the worst
in California history. There are still 32 people
not accounted for. Over 1.000 structures
destroyed.
No updated report on what our Woolsey fire
is doing so keep watching the news for
information.
Even in the house I can taste the wood smoke
with all the windows closed.
Wind warnings are still in effect but we are not
seeing any locally.
Weather conditions should change on Tuesday they
say. The fires will probably be smoldering for another
week or so.
Its seems at first reports that PG & E (pacific gas &
electric company) might be at fault again.
It seems there was an early report of a small brush fire
under one of their transmission towers and the company
reported a break in transmission at that point in the
early start of the fire as a possible point of origin.
Off I go to get something to eat and another LARGE
mug of tea. TTFN

Just been nattering telephone  to Susan......they went with Matt's Mum to the service and the walk to the monument for the minute silence.

The building work is coming along ......she was telling me they'd been to the fireplace shop to have another look at some of the designs they liked but wasn't too sure which one to go for, and how lovely the guy had been invited them to his home to look at the work he's had done and the different woodburners & surrounds.   Now that is service.

Ok back later......
