    Welcome to you also. I think I read some of your posts and you speak French. I enjoy the way different cultures communicate with each other. My brother is totally deaf but we find a way to talk.

    My dear Bea. I think you mentioned that you like the song "You raise me up" from Josh Groban.
    Please listen to my version that I sung for you. I am thinking of you, hoping you are fine. The actual calender sheet of the tortoise calender reminds me of you and Jaques. RIP little mud turtle soul.
    Here is "You raise me up" for you Bea.:)

    Yes I've wondered about that too. I'm allowed by Ohio law to do that...and I've hammered nail holes in the lids of many old paint cans that were already here. They are still sitting here. I think California is more environmentally conscious though so...many times I base a decision I make on their laws not Ohio's. The chemicals are a whole different story. It's crazy that this planet keeps producing things that probably can't be thrown away. Even some of the newer lightbulbs if broken in your home could be hazardous...

    Good evening friends. Summer is gone in Germany and fading slowly into autumn. Days are still sunny but nights are cold. 6,2 C means 43,52 F. That`s really cold.... Brrrrrrrr...
    Tomorrow I will get fire wood for the next winter and oil for the central heating is ordered and will be delivered soon.
    Where have all the days are gone ? All the weeks and months ? Time is running so fast. Too fast....
    But when its cold and rainy outside I have more times to stay in the Cold Dark Room when you all still want me. ;) A "lost" roommate will come home like a stray dog.:oops:
    I will be happy to come home.:)

    Oh, Bee, BEE!!!!! That was so beautiful!!! It brought tears of joy to my eyes!!!:<3::<3::<3:
    I especially needed to hear that lately- I have been very sick off and on since early June. My new problem is an uncommon type of asthma that is very difficult to control. I had so much trouble trying to breathe that I had to stay a day in the hospital; they've made lots of medication changes etc. i can breathe ok if I don't do a lot, but talking causes coughing and shortness of breath. I know this is very new, and my doctors will get it under control soon, but l get very down sometimes.
    And I was very down today, but your WONDERFUL voice and your amazing voice control and expression in this song really did lift me up!!

    Thank you, my friend- THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! :):<3::<3::<3:
    (i will be listening to you sing this several more times!!!! What a truly beautiful voice!!!...But I think it just matches your beautiful HEART!!! :):<3: )

    Maybe the good Lord dressed them up in the perfect camouflage to protect them from predators.

    Pretty soon you'll have a rescue and rehab center and no flies...they even build their own habitat. Just kidding...I don't kill them either if they don't bug me I won't bug them.

    If they have a good cherry cheese Danish I'll be over.!!! I can't find one anywhere here. Even Panera Bread and Tim Hortens stopped selling the good ones. If I'm hungry for a donut I want it sinfully delicious!

    Sorry to hear you’ve been unwell Bea. Electronic hugs and a mug of restorative English tea from over the Atlantic. (We Brits swear by tea to solve pretty much any problem [emoji6])

    Good mornooning everyone. It’s Wednesday already. The weather is gloomy, we have what’s left of hurricane Dorian passing over the UK, but at least it isn’t too cold.

    I am in the rescue this afternoon, but this morning I have to chores to catch up on. Not see you later :)

    Well we have trips planned for December, June and August... We live very close to the Channel Tunnel, France is closer than most of the UK, so pop over frequently for a cheese and wine fix [emoji1]
