Denis Fallon
Ladykate,

I don't blame you for being a little fed up with all the rain. It seems that it has rained here in the mountains every day since the end of June. My yard man has to come every ten days now rather than every two weeks, and that seems not often enough. One of my daughters lives down in Murrell's Inlet, SC and she has been inundated too.

One of the side benefits of all the rain is that I have never seen our mountains more lush and green. I noticed in one of the board messages that your husband comes from Ocracoke. Was he a Coast Guiardsman?
ladykate
Hi Dennis how are you doing okay I hope,oh this rain is terrible at least yours run doon the mountain doon here in the Lowlands there,s no where for it to go eveything is satuarated,the weatherman says the middle of next week before it goes away.

George retired in 1983 from the Coastguard five miles down the road at Hobucken, he was a Chief Boswainsmate at one time there were six of the brother,s in the Coastguard at the same time,his mother had eleven boys as it was a fishing village most of the lads went into the service or become a fisherman.

Denis Fallon
Ladykate,

I made a pretty good guess re your husband's career. I've read that there were and are whole families of folks from the outer banks who went into the Coast Guard. By heritage and tradition they are well suited for that service. You should be proud of him and them. There are some folks over on Harkers Island who have been building boats for generations and if you get one of their boats you've got one that will last a lifetime. Do you have a Harkers Island boat?
Melody
Good Morning Italia and Bigell, smile.gif nice day again here, hope it's nice with you!
betty2
Another fine day one could get yased tae this
cool.gif cool.gif
Melody
Morning Betty, your right, we're getting spoiled with the weather, better take it and enjoy it all before the old winter comes in. How did Lee get on yesterday? smile.gif
buntyq
Got in very early this morning from a bus trip to Saratoga (horse racing) with the Red Hatters of Fairfield. Whit a great display of red hats! And to complete our outfits we all try to wear something purple. For info on this group whose aim is friendship and fun, check into The Red Hat Society on line.

I dont know one horse from another and my limit is a dollar to show. I'm told the odds are better and I did win 90 cents! Big spender but right now there are few bawbees in the old tea caddy.

This was my second time at a race track - the first many years ago in Tampa, Florida. The weather held up until it was time for the bus to leave for Fairfield then the heavens opened. The ladies could have cared less
about dresses and shoes getting soaked - had to preserve those red chapeaus at all cost.

A big round of applause for those tour bus drivers who earn their living driving in extreme weather at night. Looks like we are in for another wet day. My resident groundhog is chewing away at the clover in the back yard. I wish he had a taste for crab grass!
ladykate
Goodmorning,Betty,melody,BigEll glad to hear you are still having
great weather sad.gif jist wish it was me no you all enjoy yourselves
still raining here like Bunty says all the way to Florida,ah feel sorry
for the holiday makers there probably wishing they stayed home.

Okay Teeny ah will settle for a cuppa if you dont have ony thing
stronger,sorry dont have any Alka Seltsers will a couple of asprin
dae.

Dennis you are so right about the young men being suited
for the Guard,they lived on the water just have one nephew
in it now he is stationed in Alabama.
George has never had a Harker,s Island boat that I know of
he has a Priveteer at the moment since he went back to the
tugboats he jist fishes small time now.

Kate

Denis Fallon
Yes' I'm back, I don't do much posting but I do a lot of reading and listening in to all that goes on with this great group of people. I was off for nearly a month. We put down new carpet in most of this wee house and bought some new furniture and drapes and had the old back decking torn up and replaced. We went up to Ohio foir a grand-daughter's wedding (she married a young man who graduated from West Point in May) then we had house guests from Georgia and Alabama, then my daughters from SC and CA came to help me celebrate my 82 birthday. We are now awaiting the arrival tomorrow of our daughter and granddaughter from Ohio for a few days visit. When they leave we will have a breather. Who ever said that retirement is dull?
Catherine

wink.gif Just dropping in to day hi, after being away with the Trailer for the weekend. The first time this year I might add,and perhaps the last. It seems to be very stressful on Mishka,oor wee dug of 14years who is blind. The obvious inevitable is raising its' ugly head again,and I of course, am trying to ignore it. Happy to learn that the weather is still unbelievable in Scotland. I can't believe that I did not open my umbrella once when I was there. In my neck of the woods,the weather is hot and very,very,humid,making it rather uncomfortable for sleeping. But I will not complain. The darn winter is soo long,and cold,meriting one to suffer in silence during the summer. Betty I did soo want a nice cuppa tea,but couldn't find the T-bags. Did you or somebody change there usual place on the shelf, next to the stove?. So I had to satisfy myself with a digestive biscuit and a glass of good Scottish Waaater. Betty will you please check on this fur me..Thanks pal....Rena rolleyes.gif
jimmyd
Aw! Doremi love,I have been that road with two dogs.One was a wee Poodle who was old blind ,and then a Boxer,the kids grew up wi those pets.The decision has to be made,lets face ,if I get to that stage then I hope someone does it fur me.I love the memories of those two wee pals.Had to part with my we Tonkinese cat ,when I sold up.
Was sitting here on the PC the other night,and I hear this Meowing.without thinking I shout "OK Suzie A,hm coming".Took me a second or two to realise,where I was. Senior Moment !!!! or wishful thinking .????
