hey hey ahm back hud tae finishnup buying a new pc as my auld wan went kiblonk, but up and running agin. Mercy Boots and Catherine jist read yir posts aboot yir motors, terrible,you know what, I bought one of those alarms that lets you know when someone is in your yard the only trouble was every time a car went by the driveway it went off and I was constantly jumping up to see but I think I put it in the wrong spot, it is wireless (so what isnt these days) and attaches to your mailbox post that is if you have a mailbox post and if you dont well I am sure you will find a spot for it and the alarm is in the house, got it in one of those Harriet Carter type books, really works. I was just reading the news this morning and did you know that american citizens coming into the states from Mexico and Canada have to have a passport, ohmy.gif this is supposed to start Dec.31st 2005 I guess the passport office needs money hahaha naw jist joking this is all part of the new homeland security.

Somebody please bring me up to date!!! You talk about a shower and over here that usually means a wedding or a baby .Is that what the reference to presents meant ? I'm glad I found you all and hope to hear back soon Jakka
boots
Goodmorning Jakka, I guess I got here late and you're the only one who waited up for me. I'm pretty sure that'll be a baby shower Mags is having for another wee grandchild. The presents Betty has, are surprises she brought home after her long absence from here. It was a forced holiday cause her computer went on the blink (nearly drove her nuts) and we all missed her. I think she's going to keep those presents for herself though, 'cause she hasn't said anything yet about opening them. I'm going to get kicked off of here soon (my daughter needs the computer) but I'll get back later so if you're still around I'll catch you then.

annie laurie
Hello,
Had to laugh to myself reading your e-mail Jakka, reminded me of the first time my Mum visited Canada also,
We took her to a holiday resort, for a week, and she was so impressed, I will never forget what she asked me {God rest her soul}
How did you find this place, did you know the wummin that owns it, we all laughed so hard the best laugh of the Day,
You see when we were young we always would go to Preswick Troon or Girvan, and always just rented a house, as I am sure a lot of you all did in the 50's

Remember when we used to talk about the red sluts. Well, this coming Saturday is the Big Shanty Parade in Kennesaw and the Dixie Diva Red Hatters, of whom I am a charter member, proposed going as the red sluts with fishnet stockings and peerie heels. Caused a lot of excitement among the ladies but was voted down reluctantly. After all, this is a family parade. Too bad. Come to think of it, I'm not sure how many of us could march with peerie heels.
buntyq
Mags, finally found out why I couldn't connect my computer with the server so I am in the dark about the goings on in East Norwalk. Who is the shower for?
betty2

jakka13
Hi Betty,I would gladly do your stairs everytime I visit !!!.My computer has been acting up for just over a week now and that 's why my responses have been erratic . You mentioned in an earlier post about loving music well I like all the old stuff as well . I heard a name of a singer I had never heard before and she is great !!!.She is a mix of Kay Star ,Theresa Brewer and Connie Francis all in one . You know the times you just want to be by yourself and hurt well this is the girl to listen to . Her name is Timi Yuro. Never heard of her but downloaded some of her stuff from Kazaa and wondered why she never made it big . I was the president of the Johnny Ray fan club as you know from my claim to fame and have always thought no one else could sing it like him , well you should hear this girl belt it out .She sings a lot of the old and best stuff .I hope you can get some of her music .I think she may have had trouble with her throat and that's what ended her career smile.gif
betty2
Hi jakka think ah've got Timi Yuro on one if my old LoP.s singing "HURT" Aw my golden oldies are on record form an ah huvnae goat a turntable tae play them oan, lots o good stuff lyin up in ma attic.
