oH come on Jakka, did you not say you were going to take ma turn. Don't forget to whitewash the borders . Don't laugh guys guess where I was tonight. Bridesmaid shopping. Daughters have picked the dress style for next August wedding. No idea as yet what colour they will decide on. Don't have to decide till Christmas.And so it all begins again.

Keelie hope you have a great weekend. A thought life began at 60 , am a not right Betty? You have a lot of years ahead of you , dont waste a second of them,ENJOY.
Jim and I just booked up for eight days in Cuba. It was one of these last minute great deals on the net. One other couple ,friends of ours are also going. We leave on Halloween, Cant wait. Need a good week away from it all.
Elma
Of course life begins at 40 but get even better at 60!!

Congrats Betty on your win and wow, I bet your friend is over the moon at her winnings. I don't think I'd know what to do first. I never have any luck with the lottery, don't go to Bingo, no halls near here. sad.gif
Isobel
What a weekend I have had. Its turned so dam cold here, hard to take after all the beautiful warm weather we have had. Still it is almost Halloween, You would think the stores would be happy to just celebrate the season ,but no all the Christmas decor is out in full force. Sorry Im not a bit more like you Betty . I hate shopping so I tend to pick up anything just to get back home. My girls call me queen of the returns. I should think about my purchase before I rush into things.Yes I will be back at the mall during the week. Just one return this time, ha ha , well its good to be able to laugh at ourselves.
betty2
The big bingo win for my friends has turned into a nightmare, After agreeing to share [this was decided brfore the game started] the one who won it renaged on the deal. Now this involved 2 sisters and 2 sisters in law, all one family/ Now under scottish law a verbal agreement is legal and binding its whats called a gentlemens agrrement . As a result of all this there is a very ugly split in the family, and tomorrow its headlines in the papers. Talk about money being the root of all evil, this incident has proven that.

But ma win jist fur masel so ah,ve nae hassle , its up tae me who ah bung tongue.gif

Ha ha Betty, I'm following you around anyway!! I'm almost ready for bed so popped in for a wee browse, you're right it is like window shopping and doesn't cost anything smile.gif

Sorry to hear about the bingo winners, there's something to be said for being in it for oneself.
keelie gal
Betty thats a shame the sisters have fell out because of the bingo win , its a lot of money to win eh! but as you say betty money is the root of all evil very very true ,still glad you had your win betty keep it up more money in the pot fer yer holidays wink.gif
Angela Chick
Morning all.

Oh betty is that not just awful re bingo winnings, is she had kept to her agreement and split it 4 ways a quarter of a million is a hell of a lot of money(life changing). A really feel for the other 3 women they must be gutted to say the least.

All i can say is the winner will never have any luck with it thats for sure and she wont enjoy it either considering what i read in the paper this morning. Its so true " the love of money is the root of all evil". sad.gif

I've got the ugliest cactus you have ever clapped eyes on ...This thing just got bigger and uglier every year and never got a flower .I went on the net and found out it wouldn't flower till it became pot bound .Well the hook I had it hanging from broke a few months ago ,I picked the plant up as best I could and put it in another hanger (a bit smaller).I lost quite a bit of it as a lot broke off when it fell .Well lo and behold I've got ten buds on it .I'm treating it like a jewel ....If I get flowers I'll take a picture and try and post it .

Glad to hear about your win Betty2. More power to you and keep the run of good luck going. That was a terrible thing about the million pound jackpot. That happened in the Mecca, Drumchapel a number of years ago. Two friends [from Dunoon I think] used to go every week and always split their winnings. One of them won the £100,000 and her husband wouldn't let her share it with her friend. It caused all sorts of trouble and I think it went to court but don't know the outcome. As you say, money is the root of all evil and this proves it.
betty2
According to what I,ve read it has happened on more than one occasion and them that took it to court won. Now a husband having a say in this, well that I dont agree with especially if he is,nt involved in the game. No man husband or not would tell me what to do with my winnings becausu I believe in "whats mine is mine to do what I please with" And that too is legal and binding.


However there may be a fairer ending to this story in time

Glad you like the plant .It's got about eight of these flowers and about another ten ready to open and some smaller buds .Everybody who ever saw it had a good laugh at it it was so ugly .My man said I should just leave it hanging at the cottage he didn't want me to bring it home .It just goes to show what you can get from an Ugly Duckling laugh.gif
