Elma
Isn't that the truth Lass. Last weekend I went back to return a sweater I had bought and came home with three pairs of shoes. tongue.gif
Elma
Funny how things happen....

I went to get my hair cut today and mentioned that I should get a perm sometime, next thing I knew I was back home with curly hair. Guess I'm too easy to get talked into things..... laugh.gif unsure.gif
glasgow lass
Last time a had a perm Elma a looked like a had stuck ma finger in a socket rolleyes.gif
angel

I was speaking this morning to my neighbour's sister and she was telling me that she was finding the humidity here so uncomforable and she all the way from Florida thinking that she would get some respite from the heat unsure.gif
I hav'nt had a perm in years , figure I was better without one , smile.gif
Elma
I hadn't had a perm for years either but boy, do I have one now. Just call me curly top!! laugh.gif My friend told me this morning that it made me look younger, it made my day. tongue.gif unsure.gif

angel

once more this morning , I boiled a large pot of potatoes
that will do for , potato egg salads , potato scones and fish cakes.
I also cooked pasta ,which will be for a variety of salads, so that's me ahead of the game , the heat is just too / to oppressive for cooking ,
still don't know what to have for supper unsure.gif

angel


well it's a bit after 9pm here , so I will have to go and water the plants ,
still no rain , does'nt look like there will be anytime soon . sad.gif
angel


well , we did get some rain this morning , but not enough as yet that would make a difference .

I have noticed that the time of posting on the boards is about an hour slower since the maintenance was carried out the other day.

Lovely warm sunny day, having a rest day apart from doing veg,

Like you Angel, am ahead of the game, my Beef Bourbignon just needs to be heated. biggrin.gif

angel

Stratson do you spike the beef Bourbignon with some wine,
I might just try that meal in the slow cooker. smile.gif .......

also Stratson it's the time difference to which I refer between Ontario and Scotland ,the board's time is about 2 hrs now , instead of five. unsure.gif
angel
I spent most of my morning , outside in the yard, puttering around
the house and clearing away whatever I could find .
Altough the temp. is a wee bit lower today , it was still very warm
so I came in to cool off .
cheers biggrin.gif
Isobel

My grandson is taking me to lunch today
it's his day off from work ,his girlfriend is working ,
so he asked me . unsure.gif biggrin.gif
Heather
I was in the Town today to collect our travel tickets and euro's and when walking down Queen Street I saw a man staggering out a pub three sheets to the wind and that was just after 12 noon.
I wondered how early the pub opened that anyone could get so drunk at that time of the day. wub.gif
angel



Heather ,he probably started off drunk in the first place. sad.gif
Heather
Angel, you may be right, he probably never sobered up from the night before. rolleyes.gif

Imagine that staggering in to you at that time of the day. mad.gif
angel


Angel, you may be right, he probably never sobered up from the night before.

.........................................
Heather , he would be staggering out again faster than he ever came through the door , not matter what time of day . biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Heather
Angel I will never understand how anyone who gets so drunk can say they had a good time. wub.gif

Ach well, I'm almost packed to go off and have a good time without getting drunk.

Just think about me running around the Waterpark and Jungle Safari with the two g'daughters. I'll need a rest when I come home.
We were at the same Hotel last year and a few years before, so the g'daughters have their good times all planned out.
They just came home from Calpe with their parents a few days ago. Time enough for their mum to unpack and repack for them . laugh.gif
glasgow lass

Just heard some sad news my 3 G/daughters friend went missing at New Year they found his body today up on one of the big estates in Ullapool in his early 20s, so sad a young life wasted before he had time to enjoy no drugs or booze involved R.I.P BJ

RIP BJ.

Heather
Thank you Angel and have a good time when you go away.

Lass it takes a long time to get over losing a parent but good memories never go away.
Take care.

Your making me jealous talking about going to Italy as you know I love going there especially Rome and Venice.
I nearly booked up for Lake Garda as we went to Malcesine one year and enjoyed it but the Hotels don't cater for children as well as Spain does. I also prefer buffet meals and Italian Hotels are mostly waiter service and that's no use with fussy eating children.

The Hotel we were in in Lido De Jesolo 2/3 years ago did do buffet meals and they were very good especially the good selection for breakfast and they made pancakes that were lovely right off the griddle.
You could take your breakfast out to the terrace and sit there with a view right over the sea. smile.gif

I just received, in my email , photos of the War Cemetary in El Alamein ,
a friend of mine sent them to me .
I have an uncle who was killed during the war there and although
most of what I know of him , has been told by family members,
the photos have filled me with a touch of nostalgia . smile.gif
Heather
Angel, that would be very nostalgic. Is your Uncle's grave shown in it??

Here you Annewan, I nearly forgot my camera. Instead of telling me to go commando you should have checked I had my camera.
What were you thinking about, I know, your next Bingo win. laugh.gif

No Heather it is'nt but we do have all that information about the grave.
He was in the 51st Highland division , 8th Army [ Desert Rats ]
his brother was also a { Desert Rat } but survived and then went on to
fight in Sicily, it was he who would tell about their experiences after the war . smile.gif
