I'd love to know how you do it Betty, I spent a wee fortune in the ship's casino and at others on the way to and from Seattle and never won a thing. I was $20 up once but I blew it as well!!! sad.gif laugh.gif

well ladies I am just stopping by to see whits for tea?,the weather here is so humid ,I hate it if you go outside your dripping wae sweat,and in ma case there is only so much cin take aff before am arrested biggrin.gif I have tried to keep up with the gardening but its no too bad so I guess I will go water the flowers before they awe die
Isobel
Hey Betty guess where I,m going ?????
betty2
Where Isobel? if its bingo then I wish you luck and may good fortune smile on you biggrin.gif

My spell of luck has been a long time coming my way , and it can go as fast as it came, so for now I,m enjoying the fruits . Could be a long time coming round again.

Still waiting for word for the op. on my knee, and its getting me down, not so much the pain but the slow lane is where I dont like being in.

Tomorrow night I,m going to see the movie "Mama Mia" cant remember when I last sat in a cinema but looking forward to it. Best way to buck up life is to do different things, I think so anyway. Never was one to sit and let the world go by. rolleyes.gif
Isobel
No Not the bingo Betty. Jim booked us up for a week in Vegas after the wedding. A think he is planning on recouping some of his money hee hee,The place we are booked is called The Polo Towers. Did you maybe see that?
CAT
Isobel that was a lovely thing for Jim to do I wish my other half was so thoughtfull. Good Luck.

Betty don't let that knee get you down. Nothin up wi the slow lane remember the tortoise and the hare wink.gif

Is that sunshine oot there no jist rerr. Put yer feet up Betty Boo and enjoy the sun. I'm lookin forward tae seeing Mama Mia too. I'm going to take my daughters and my son's girlfriend next week for a wee girls outing. biggrin.gif
betty2
Weather was too nice to be cooped up in a cinema , so have put the Mama Mia on hold until sometime next week. Aye Cat you mention the trortoise and the hare, rolleyes.gif that brought a smile tae ma face picturin masel wae a hard shell oan ma back . biggrin.gif
wee mags

Isobel
Hey Mags your church seems to have some good sales. Our summer has not been so great I am sure we must have set a record on rainfall. I am hoping and praying that Aug 9th is a nice day for ma weans wedding. They have put so much work into it I would hate if it rained and spoiled the day. So cin you say a wee prayer for her.
wee mags
Done Isobel wan prayer for nae rain on August the 9th comin up,and while am at it I may as well put in a good word for us ,as thats the day of our furniture tag sale wink.gif
wee mags
well betty am no dain too much the day jist gettin rid of some baby things we dont use anymore,I will donate them to our big tag sale in Sept,its still very hot here and very humid
Isobel
Right now Mags thunder storm here ,been a rotten summer so far. One good day then one bad. Can't depend on it. Hope you are still praying for the ninth.
wee mags
back fae church tag sale about an hour ago, I posted some photos in the gallery ,even fun some lights fur that Java biggrin.gif big brass yins ,the some nice glass yins ,
the sale takes place next Saturday, then we get set for the big yin in Sept ohmy.gif
Java
Mags, ah've jist had a look in the gallery! Where dae yees get aw this stuff? Folk oot your way must be minted....laugh.gif Shows how hard ye's aw must work tae put it together tho....gie yersel a huge pat on the back...then snag me wanna they cream lampshades...laugh.gif Ah'm away back in furranurra look...
wee mags
nae volunteers they are hard to get jist me And the other two women there in the photos plus the guys who go and collect the stuff ,we wax and polish all the stuff what we would not buy we chuck one of the sets is 100 yrs old its an old dining room set I will take better photos on thursday
I forgot the guy who patches all the things that need screws bolts and every picture you see has been washed
stratson
I really fancy the "Chaise Longue mags, see, av goat illusions o' grandeur! laugh.gif

Looks like a lot of work goes into your Tag sale, bet it goes in a breeze.

Do you not value the stuff like the 100 year old dining suite. It looks good gear.
Isobel
Gosh Mags thats some sale .What sort of prices to you get? What happens to the stuff that you don't sell, do you have to move it out . Last year at our big sale the priest would not let us store anything for the next sale we had to get rid of it all or take it home to our garages, and no one was interested in doing that . So quite a lot went off to good will.Yours looks like a very good sale.
wee mags
what we do not sell we keep for the next tag sale in Sept ,and what we have left we give to some organizations that help people out ,they send reps out to see what we have and what they can use for their clients ,
Isobel
Well good luck Mags hope it 's a really good one. You all must put a great deal of work into it all.
wee mags
betty I hope your okay ,ihave been coming and going nae time tae dae anything except sleep,I will try to give you a we call the morra wink.gif
