He's feeling a bit short changed as they finished at 11.30. He phoned and said " sure this isn't my time to go home, sure it's 3 o'clock when I go home" I hope he's still as eager come September when he is in till 3pm. laugh.gif

Isobel
Hi there Betty, How yu doin? Things are starting to get back to what a would call normal here ,after a midioka summer( not as good as usual) Just could not depend on the weather this year. We have had the last 19 days without rain so maybe that has kinda made up for the rest . I am enjoying it anyway .Long may it last.The nights are starting to get cooler all the trees are changing colour .Quite beautiful. The lucky ones are starting to close their cottages.That's when you realize its all over for another year.To all my Aussie friends you are just heading into your summer ENJOY....To the rest of you , get the winter boots out, heavy jackets and hats, oh and don't forget the snow blowers .

A Great sentiment, Betty, so true! Your holiday sounded lovely, and going to spain, wow I hope you take some photo's of the majestic (and some quite unusual) buildings when your'e there, was just watching a show on tv about spain, I'd love to get there one day!
Isobel

Catherine
So how do ye do it betty?....Jist empty the claes oot the case oan the flerr an waash dry an iron an fill the case up again?

Heard ye's had a ball laugh.gif

Geoffs away up tae North York Hospital wae Jake...he fell at school on his elbow an there's a bone that's lookin awfy annoyed stickin oot!

Naturally ah wis jist finishin paintin ma front steps when the phone call came fae school, downed tools an raced up an by the time we goat back the rain hud came oan an ma steps are a mess!!
Ever get wan of those days? laugh.gif
Gallusbisom
Heck no, Catherin, the lassie jist beetles up the toon and gets new duds fae her Bingo winnings
wink.gif Go for it Betty.

Looks like you have "wan o they days" with your son getting injured, Sorry to hear that, I tried to post a sad smilie but got told off about having too many, will I never learn?? Hope all is well. Let us know. I guess it's back to square one with the steps. I started the procedure to close the pool today, cleaning up the apples rose hips and leaves that are falling constantly (whose idea was it to plant an apple tree on each side of the pool, oh wait a minute, that would be me----moving on) In getting the apples cleaned up I got stung by a wasp, not once but about 7 times, now I am really ticked off. This is my second bout of stings this year, I was stung by an Africanised bee in Dallas and I was not impressed. So here we go again. I must have become much sweeter lately (aye right). Anytime y'all want to jump in and tell me that is the answer is OK with me. Big smilie there plus a huge wink.
I think the North York is the best of the best, all my kids were born there and when Brooke decided to have their first (and our first grandchild, wish we had more smilies but just picture a whole bunch of dancing people) she forwent Markham Stoufville and will have our GRANDSON born at North York. HRH and I are just off the wall happy. I thought that none of them would ever get around to it. Roll on Feb.

By the way Catherine, if you have a spare minute, the wood around the eves on the second floor needs a dab of paint, I can't stand heights, as you know, any chances????? (Watch your language there girl, you are a lady of the very first water.) smile.gif Betty have a great time. Miss you lately. GB
betty2
