Good morning Em, yes, I seem to be quite an early riser now, though today is a bit of a lay in for me :rolleyes: My youngest has now left school having just completed his GCSE's so it all feels a bit strange after so many years. Hope you have a lovely day over in Ireland - Kilkenny is it?

 

And good morning to everyone else as well.My task for the morning is to tackle the ironing mountain that has grown in my kitchen - just preparing myself with a cup of tea - wish me luck!!

Hi Gazelle, gosh i hate ironing especially now it takes longer but ah well has to be done i guess..I'm just back from a long walk, my sister picked up Sean yesterday so he's gone to her house for a few days as she has a few jobs for him on the farm.. so he's happy enough with some extra pocket money so i have a quiet house.Dk, Bill, Marcia, Carol, Jack everybody have a good day.

Hello Friends...Returned home from the wilds of southern Lousisana late in the day on Saturday. It was so nice to smell the clean, dry Colorado air and not have to wear SCUBA gear in order to breathe through all of the humidity! Have to say that I was one tired puppy when I finally made it home. My sweet wife then filled me in on the brewing civil war between our youngest and our middle child. So, I played Henry Kissinger all weekend and have now negotiated a very shaky cease-fire. Tomorrow, I head back out of town for a couple of days. My sweet wife is now begging to go with me! Ah, the joys of having teenagers...of course, I was ever the good boy...yeh, right. To Mom and Dad up in Heaven...I'm so sorry for all that I must have put you through!

I hope you all have a wonderful day and that life treats you kindly today.

Take care...Bill

We are just back from camping this weekend. Friends came over last night to eat dinner outside (it's different at a campsite) and the lady friend went to give me a hug and I almost fell over and flattened her! I was standing on uneven pavement and the act of slightly leaning thru me off. Yikes!

Hi again, it's evening now. Thanks for replying Em, I didn't get very far with the ironing - I think i'm just feeling a bit low because i'm tired and everythings a bit slow today. I've been on my own all day and am faffing about doing nothing and trying not to think about the future. I need to buck up. If anyones out there can you plesae give me a virtual kick up the jacksy :-(

Afternoon all. I've had to use my car today so have spent the day taping a black sack around the drivers window every time I stop somewhere. I don't think it would stop a car thief for very long, but they may just feel sorry for me!

 

Hope it went ok at the docs Em. Yes, today has been a better day - just teaches me not to sit about doing nothing all day.

 

And Bill, I soooo recognise your description of teenage battles - hope the cease-fire is holding

 

Good evening to all :P

We do have a machine now-a-days to help with ironing-it's called a dryer. I run most clothes thru the dryer and hang it up right away and we wear it or lump it. So if you see a woman wearing wrinkled clothes, it could be me! I pretend it's the fashion.

Goodmorning to Em, Marcia, Guys and Gazellda Girl. Hope you ladies have been having fun and doing something more than just ironing laundry. Well I have returned from the deep dark woods. It was fun but when I got home last nite I was exhausted. I have to hang out a washing of dirty camp clothes, get my grand son back to his Mom for a dentist appointment this morning and enjoy a cup of real coffee. Better get going and I look forward to catching up with everybody. I want all my friends here to march through today with health and strength. jb

Boy, that was a short week! Wasn't the fish biting? Welcome back! An't it good to get home? Everyone should leave home for a few days just for the enjoyment of returning!

wow, sometimes things just dissapear into thin air. I did type a reply regarding the even more exciting topics of dusting and hoovering (for the benefit of Marcia who I know loves such things <_< ), but it's lost forever. Probably a good thing? Thanks Em for keeping the good morning going.

Yeah, you are right. Seems so useless sometimes. Dusting and sweeping I mean. It just gets dirty again. Everything else gets dirty cause you used it. But not dust. So I've tried talking a lot and close up to blow it off things but I just end up spitting on the dust and that's not a pretty sight. I put my stocking feet on the coffee table and move them around and that works pretty good. I ended up putting cloth place matts on the end tables so the dust doesn't show, for a long time anyway. The only good thing about it is knowing there is just as much dust in space. I guess it's a problem there too. Can't even go into space to get away from it. Before I buy anything now I think, "Do I really like it well enough to dust it." Usually not. At one time in my life I went to work outside the home so I'd have an excuse not to clean. The only thing I asked my sister to not do is leave me messages in the dust. If it's not disturbed it's harder to see it's dusty. Yeah, you are right. So what do we name our dog when we found her- DUSTY!

ha ha, i've got a golden retriever with a long shaggy tail, so if I play with her for long enough I find she does the dusting for me. Only problem then is that the whole floor is burried under a sea of hair!

Good morning everybody, it is going to be a good day I think. Special good mornings to Shaky Spice Girl, I think I can speak for all in that we miss your posts, hope you are ok, One of Seven, where have you gone Dear Lady, Dr Soania, are you still reading this when you should be sleeping, and of course to the regulars who make my day. I think that our house is being visited today by 3 little boys and my daughter and husband. They celebrated 5 yrs of marriage yesterday. Wow, time flies. I hope that everyone has a great day today and you sorta forget that you even have Parky Flu. I got a ton of grass to cut and garden to weed. I'm eating t'maters from the garden now Eileen. I hate pulling weeds though, john
