I think I can speak for all three of us who met up yesterday that it was another grear day, we had lunch at Waxa o' Connors and stayed there for the duration of our get together. An excellent choice of venue it turned out to be , a very enjoyable lunch and the service was first class.I must compliment also the staff who were most pleasant. So to you Martin once again through you're board another three members have met up and and new friendships have been made, all thanks to you're tireless efforts in making this board the success it is today biggrin.gif

Heather, Betty & Marion,
This message is from Tommy, he said, "I know you all got loaded up with vodka, tommorow (Sat) I'm calling Maurice to check on your condition" but don't woryy he can't figure out how to call out of the country, gosh he still can't use the VCR, if I'm out he gets the kids to run it for him, now if I call Maurice it will only be because he bribed me. wink.gif

But Thanksgiving is a special holiday to us, so changed tickets and here I am. Going to Kristi's Mum as she had invited Bob and Craig. She has a good crowd but they do Lasagne, well I am very much the American, sooooo..... We will do out Turkey and all the trimmings on Friday. Had a great 17 days home. It was freezing and a gale blowing. Stll enjoyed it!!!!

hi betty a wis gonnae bring Irene over but were awe stuffed efter oor thanksgiving day dinner,but maybe we will stop by the morra, wink.gif
August26
Hi Betty,
I'm in here visiting with you, though like the turkey I'm stuffed, I got up before the rooster to put the turkey in the oven, yesterday I baked the pies and breads, apple, pumpkin and coconut custard, white and rye bread, the house smelled so good, and of course it has become a tradition in our home at Thanksgiving for me to hide the pies from Tommy.
Tommy forgot to get the beer, so he called David to pick it up, at the liquor store they gave David 2 long keychains with the word VODKA printed all around them, Tommy said one for Betty the other for Marion, so he did think of you both.
We painted the living room and dining room last week, tomorrow the carpetting is being delivered, David will install it Saturday afternoon, oh said he,"you want to enjoy it for a while before the kids spill something on it, one of our local stores has a wake up call for people who want to get out early Firday morning, there are huge sales all over to kick off the Christmas season, he and Pam are on the list for 5:30 A.M. most stores open at 6:00 A.M.we told him not to make any noise if he drives down our street, I tried to talk him out of going shopping and to come over here Firday and install the carpet, this way we could go to Mags Saturday, you know she's not such a distance from us.
Gosh I think I have to take a nap, or an alkaseltzer, I'm so stuffed I'm uncomfortable.

Catherine
Hi therr...the names Bond..James Bond...but you kin call me Basildon laugh.gif

August26
Mags;
Tommy knew I was hoping to go to your house tomorrow (12/27)
David was also off today so he was gonna install the carpetting today, of course we had to move the furniture, pull up the old carpet and underpad, what a mess, off they go to the carpet store, at 2:30 who I might add was supposed to have everything ready for them, after a couple of hours I thought they had gone to Oshkosh for it, apparently the store lost our order, we finally got it at 9:15 tonight, the house is a disaster, everything is out of the living room and dining room, the kitchen and my computer room are wall to wall, and the worst part because of all the shoppers the Fire Company have the Firemen on overtime at the mall tomorrow, so much for my installation, we also need Tom to move the piano, he's on undecover at the same Mall for the Police Dept, I told Tommy we should go to the Mall follow our boys around and whisper to them ........carpetting.........think it will work, actually I told them, take the overtime, no big deal Mom can wait. rolleyes.gif
I guess I'll have to try for another time.
