Isobel
Well that's good news Betty, tonight we are off to the races. I hope I will be a little bit luckier than I was in Vegas
tammy
Right ladies I'm all stressed out from all that shoutin and fighting in that one post. I've put a nice fire on, cleaned up the place, done the stairs outside, chased those mucky weans away from next door and have put on the soothing music and now have a large pitcher of my famous martini's made for any who would like to put their feet up and just relax and enjoy good company and sensible conversation. Ahhhhh.....
Isobel
Here a come Tammy, Mibe we could get a wee song from Jimmy.Am getting a wee bitty fed up way all the fighting going on in some of the topics.How you doing Betty. Any luck at the bingo. We had a great night won one race but the odds were rotten so I only got about $12.
tammy
Hi Isobel, how are you? It's been awhile. Although I do pop in every so often. It has been nice to be told I'm missed by a few who have sent me PM's. I have missed some, but not all. Ha!Ha! It was al the fighting I couldn't stand. But in Betty's wee house it's always friends, chat and laughter. Put your feet up and fill me in on the wedding and what else you've been up too this Summer. Heard from Betty and she said she's on the mend and is looking forward to her birthday coming soon! Looks like another party is going to happen. Angie's still enjoying her 2 weeks in Turkey with her suntan now that she's home. Karen is back to normal with wee Chloe keeping her busy and Keelie was away melting John's credit cards having a fun day out shopping. So, she should be in looking for a nice drink and sore feet to put up too.
Isobel
Just arrived in, we went to the home show in Toronto. Jim not too happy as it was such a nice day here. It was a waste of time, nothing there that we were interested in. So I am going to have a wee seat in the garden before it get's to dark and have a wee rum and coke.
The wedding went really well. Party night before was great. Poor Kathryn got a pretty wet day, but when we came out the church it was dry for about an hour and a half. Enough time for some nice pictures. Go to the gallery and you will see a few I posted. Next big event is the birth of my first grandchild. Joanne my other daughter who was married a year ago is expecting on Feb 3rd. I am so excited I feel like bursting. Just can’t wait.Whats your drink Tammy, I'll pour you one?

A lot of bickering going on in some area's of the board. Hate when it gets like that.
jakka13
Haven't been on here most of the summer .I've had other things to deal with .Who's fighting now ?????.I thought all the trouble makers had shut up !!!!!
I just came on to say I just came off the phone with oor ain Boots .While she's not doing great she is having surgery on her left hand on Oct 4th so if it is sucessful she'll be on here soon .
In the meantime she sends her love to all her pals .
Cheers Jakka
tammy
Oh Jakka pal, sit down and put your feet up and let me get you a drink. I know you need to relax a little and let us pamper you instead of you always doing for everyone else. And funny you were on the phone to Boots, I was going to e-mail you and ask how she was doing! Glad she's still ok, tell her I will be sending her love and positive thoughts for her hand operation. I hope it improves her daily living once it's all over and done with. She's a gem and I miss her. It's back to raining today, hope it doesn't last until June now. Isobel, I did look at the wedding photos and your daughter was stunning! I love looking at photos, especially of people and big events. Brides always look so beautiful. And a new and first grandchild I bet you're excited! Let me refresh your rum and coke for you and we can celebrate together. Or shall we open a bottle of champagne? We'll get a case when the baby is born and we'll have a party. I love shopping for the wee clothes and shoes. I like that better than holding them. HA!HA! I got to shop for wee boys clothes a couple of weeks back as my girlfriend became a grandma for the first time, so that was fun. And I got to hold him last weekend when we went up to see Phil's Mum for her birthday as they live in the same town. He was so cute. He seemed so tiny then I remembered my Rachel was smaller! Boy does time fly by fast! It's her grad year this year. As for the fighting Jakka, I think sometimes it's just some do it for their own entertainment. The topic got locked and one person got banned. It was just a bit rididculous, makes you weary of posting because you just never know how it will go. But, as we all know here things are usually friendly and relaxing and that's why we return. Heard from Angie again today and she is just back from her wonderful trip to Turkey a few weeks now and if she hasn't already booked a trip to Spain end of October! She's turning into quite the jetsetter! Lucky girl! I wonder if we can squeeze into her suitcase? And a quick chat from Keelie and she's still worn out from all her shopping. I don't think she left anything in the stores! LOL! laugh.gif Do you think maybe Catherine is still in her garage? You don't think those wee racoons got the better of her do you? laugh.gif Well I've opened a bottle of red, maybe that will get her in here.
keelie gal
Hi Ladies.. okay Tammy since you have opened a bottle of red pour me a wee splash will ye pal biggrin.gif
tammy
Right Keelie sit yourself down and get this glass of red in ya. And let's see all your parcels from your shopping trip? Soon, we'll be Christmas shopping...it will be here before we know it. I think I'll make a pot of soup today, it's stopped raining here, but overcast a true Fall day outside. Being the good little wifey I am, I made porridge for breaky today for Brittany and Phil, she's off to work and he's off to his soccer(football). The Queen, I mean Rachel is still in her bed. laugh.gif
Isobel
Jakka great to see you posting, looking forward to seeing you soon. Tammy kin you know get some white wine that red stuff gives me a big headache. It’s a great day today so just going to sit and read in the garden. Don’t know how many more good days we will get now. The trees are starting to change and fall is here.. I love fall the colours here are always so beautiful. Great news on Boots. I hope the operation is successful she did have so much pain in her hands. .
tammy
Here you go Isobel, one case of chablis just for you..well and whomever would like to share it..haha! And a case of red and a case of Bailey's a couple of bottles tucked unde the sink for wee Sammy in case he makes his way in for a visit. Nobody get any ideas that we are all wino's in here, we just like to be prepared. Never know when there is a cause for a celebration or glass is needed between friends. laugh.gif
toerag
I will share a wee glass of white with you Isobel! Thanks Tammy, cheers!
betty2
Started the day with a surprise and very p;easant phone call fron Elma She returns home on thursday and I did,nt get the opportunity of meeting with her face to face. Her remaining time is taken up with previous appointments huh.gif Perhaps another time Safe journey home Elma and thank you for the call. biggrin.gif


Starting to get out a bit made the bingo on saturday and I,m on the road now so its all going well for me. Nice to see you all keep popping in here I think most of the success of this thread is that its homely and friendly, Way back when I stwerted this thread on the old board thats was the whole intention of it, and its survived to this day . So take a bow all of you who have kept this alive and entertaining Cheers Tammy still on pain killers but think maybe a wee splash o wine for medicinal purposes is allowed
