Sunny, bright & windy here as well. Given our unpredictable forecast for tomorrow, we’re going for one of our woodland trail walks this morning. I’ll see how my hip handles some uneven terrain. Hopefully no snow on the trails, if so, that might cut our walk short.

Our Coryodora catfish laid some eggs (17) last night. Usually by the time we come up with a rescue plan they are gobbled up by tank mates. Soooooo, wifey concocted a plastic cup into a little sanctuary. Three to five days, we’ll see….if we have weee fish.

Bras as well now is it?
Used to be just knickers....the lingerie shops must love Tom!!!
By the way, I love the word knickers. Just one of those weird things ?‍♀️

Iʻve been watching The Secret Life of the Zoo, itʻs filmed at the Chester Zoo, I love listening to the accents. My husband grumbles about one woman in particular, he says he canʻt understand a single word she says lol,

A Discovery of Witches is another one with the amazing accents, and when looking up locations, some of it was filmed in Cardiff - I think that was mentioned in a couple pages back on this thread.

Happy warm, humid days from Honolulu! ??:tort:

Today it got up to the low 50's (at least in my yard). Tomorrow the high temp is supposed to be in the 20's. Mostly what's left of the snow is slush. It'll be ice by morning. And we're supposed to stay in the 20's for several days so I'm stuck in the house. That's ok I'm working on a project for Sapphire's enclosure so my mind will be busy. It's a new little hidey hut that I hope and pray I don't make too fancy for him. He hates fancy ?. My plan is for it to double as a plant stand for a spider plant. We'll see.

I don't know if any of you have ever heard of "Whose Line Is It Anyway", but when Collin Mochery does a skit where he uses his scottish brogue, it just cracks me up. He way over does it. Terribly funny!

Iʻve heard of it, but never watched it myself. Is it still running?

Well I know it’s winter… & you know it’s winter…. But Texas does NOT know it’s winter. She must be very confused lately ?

it was 76F yesterday evening and will be 23F tonight… I think is mid 30’s out right now..

I love the MukLuks socks and boots. Furry soft goodness hugging your feet… ???

Good morning/afternoon all,
Funny old day here, frosty but sunny and now there's a big black cloud appeared and it looks like it's about to pour down - or snow - but neither are in the forecast so maybe we'll have just a quick shower. Temps about 38F.
The garden is full of birds at my feeders and Lola is still in his hide but peeping around the side of his door watching what I'm up to.
I have a few chores I need to do today so I'd best get busy but like Arnie 'I'll be back!'
