Thankyou Yvonne. Yes it's all those memories also people don't really know how special tortoises are unless they've actually had them as pets. Also Jacky and Daisy had a bond eventhough tortoises are solitary animals.

My heart goes out to you.

Hope Opo doesn't come up against one of these. This was over by my brother's house. He lives a few miles from me. It's a wonder we haven't come across any. They have built 8 new homes on our street.

I have a friend that's getting one now and then in her chicken coop in Arizona. It's interesting. Is that one your brothers visitor? Maybe the cement is a nice place to warm up on 🤔😊

I haven't heard him talking about seeing the snake on a regular basis.

I love cheesecake.
As I was writing that. I realized why Cathie asked if it was cheesecake. Very sneaky Cathie!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
I now I am going to get penalized. @Tidgy's Dad any points for using the word cheese? Especially on your birthday?😁

Dear Ray,

My mum was English and dad was Malaysian and in the seventies we lived in Sabah Malaysia (North Borneo). We spent one weekend staying at the Mount Kinabalu resort and mum and I took a walk in the jungle alone and on the path mum saw a brown snake with a red head. I didn't see it but I was aware that mum was jabbing at something with a stick. She later described it to me and when we met one of the rangers they said it was a Krait Snake which is very poisonous! I was so proud of mum for seeing it off!

I will also be eternally grateful to dad because he taught us to always use a stick and the Malaysian countryside and we found out why!

Since @Tidgy's Dad is visiting again, I thought of him when this popped up on Twitter.

All aboard London’s floating restaurant that’s devoted to cheese! The Cheese Barge is a 96ft double-decker barge moored on the iconic Regent’s Canal in Paddington and is a floating homage to all things cheese 🧀 @thecheesebarldn

Hope folks on the East side of the US are beginning to dry out. I got home from Kerry's around noon today....boy we got a bit of rain but it was a "wet rain" not a "driving rain" so no yards were washed away this week! LOL

I got to Kerrys Fri and she was still at work so I helped her by hanging up some jackets and stuff....that's when i saw it, hiding under a coat she doesn't wear.....I know what it is, I've seen it before! I have not confronted her yet over it but it sure explains quite a bit over the past 12 years of how she effortlessly keeps up with me.
So....here it is....

The play, actually a Musical was great! The Director did a fantastic job casting 3 folks with stage talent and borrowing from the local choir to get some voices...and they had a great opening night! A good way to end the week.

We went grocery shopping in the rain Sat morn and got there when they opened, the rest of the world was walking in the doors as we were leaving so good move!

Stopped by the bank and went up to the local motorcycle shop to settle up for Kerry's bike. I just didn't have the time so Bill put on new tires, balanced it all, rebuilt the carbs, changed the oil, filters and new battery. Bill is a good guy and didn't want to charge her b/c she gave him that other bike last Spring. I explained on Fri on my way over to Kerry's when I stopped so we could BS for a while, that he fixed her bike for me and he didn't really have a choice, NAND(no argument, no discussion) so now she's golden. 1982 GS450L w/ 7,500 miles. The Zuk is nice....soft but nice and fits her 5-4 frame perfectly.

That's all we did, all day.....we did see some grass growing that we sowed last weekend...so there's that! A great w/e.....I left around 10am so she could get to her stuff. She's up at school with a team mate doing lesson plans for next week.

Her and I are going to have a talk about what I found......but I'm not sure how to broach the subject. I'm patient though so I can think this through. I'm thinking that I might cause us to be invited to a Costume party for Halloween, then just see what she shows up in?

Enjoy the day guys....


Haven't seen Lyn lately...she good?

We had a 2005 Buick Lesabre that belonged to my dad. I really didn't want to get rid of it for nostalgic reasons. My electrician kept bugging me to sell to him. The car was in great shape with 70,000 miles. A few months ago I went to start it. It would turn over but not fire up. After a little trouble shooting, I figured it was the fuel pump. So today my electrician came over. Now it needed a new battery. So he went and bought a battery and fuel pump. I figured with him being a electrician. That he would be able to wrench on cars.(I was wrong)I was going to be the brains of the operation. There was a access panel in the trunk. So we didn't need to drop the tank. I was getting impatient with the progress. So I put my prosthetic arm on and diplomatically said let me give it a try.Good thing Lesabre's have a large trunk. Got it done in 90° weather, so I am not going to do anything for the rest of the day.

Congratulations and the down time is well earned. Good job. Those are a pretty good ol car. I can understand why he wants it so badly..
