DOWN AT THE RETIREMENT CENTRE LOL

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

80-year old Bessie bursts into the rec room at the retirement home. She holds her clenched fist in the air and announces,"Anyone who can guess what's in my hand can have sex with me tonight!!"

An elderly gentleman in the rear shouts out, "An elephant?"

Bessie thinks a minute and says, "Close enough."

Weekend Roundup

Sunday, September 11, 2011

Got 3 knickknacks yesterday for the lounge in Uxbridge all in deep red to echo the deep red on the chimney breast/fireplace…………..
A sculpture,

An unusual shape vase www.next.co.uk/g924186s3#733950g92

I’m going back for a second one as I think 2 together will add more impact.

And a shallow dish similar to this in NEXT

KIWHcwqoICuDrG%2FxTcDPfxIrYzUvEu76RzzM
6wutKTeo9AOCB%0AtDs76aYYKg%3D%3D



The pictures don’t do them justice!

I thought DH would wince at them and I wanted to see them in place (our tastes differ so much) so checked with the shop assistant that I could take them back if not liked and yes no probs. emoticon

But he loves them…….well blow me down with a feather, that’s a first!!!! emoticon

I quickly ran another coat of paint over the wall beneath the kitchen window (aubergine) this morning while waiting for DH to surface as it had become a little scuffed when we moved the lounge cabinets back into the lounge from the kitchen having decorated in there. I cursed DH when he did it... So it’s perfeck again in there.
Note to self must take a pic for MIL in Canada; she’ll never get to see her son’s handiwork otherwise.

Today F1 racing is on in Italy ( as it was yesterday hence the knickknack purchases in Uxbridge) and so to avoid that I got my 30 mins on the bike done b4 brekkie, showered and went for a walk in the park. I always have my Ipod on and try to walk to the rhythm of the upbeat music so by the time I get home I’ve at least felt a little sweaty (sorry should have said “glowing”; LADIES glow men sweat LOL) have a shower and get either lunch or dinner ready. Yeah …sorry but this ole chicken is getting set in her ways.

It was lovely just to walk and take in the changing season.
The grounds men have been at work; the grass paths around Cranford Park and those that cross through it have all been neatly mown and the trees at the far end of the park, where there is narrow road leading to the motorway, have all had their undersides trimmed so they form a parallel line with the fences either side of the road.
The grasses either side of the paths are now creamy white and up to my shoulder in some places and seeding. Wild flowers are browning although the dandelions seem to be flourishing.
Some trees were turning brown and orange in places while others where turning silver and caught the sunlight. No sign of any conkers as yet!
The stream was high with leaves and twigs being carried down it. I love the sound of the stream flowing and always stop to take that in…….so relaxing standing on the bridge looking down at the water
The cricket pitches have been mowed horizontally and vertically creating a visible pattern and the stumps have been removed.
The children’s swing park is lined with recycled rubber tyres shredded in to small pieces and some had escaped on the grass outside its boundary…probably blown by the wind.
I greeted some people with their dogs and watched as they chased after twigs and retrieved them for their owners
I touched the far fence (I said I was a creature of habit LOL) and as I rounded the central woodland I noticed they’ve installed a new iron frame wooden slatted bench, I expect some local has donated it like they did the one at the other end of the park.
No model aeroplane enthusiasts today…WAY too windy so I took the longer route back to the park entrance and someone had got to the blackberry bushes b4 me…all gone bar 2 or 3. emoticon

So now I’m home and F1 is still on, I’ve showered as I was “glowing” and although it’s windy out our garden is a sun trap so I’ll get lunch shortly and spend some time out there, til it’s time to phone our friends in Norfolk for a catch up.

A perfeck Sunday.

9/11/01 remembered

Saturday, September 10, 2011

I remember on that fateful day arriving back from holiday to Heathrow Airport and seeing it play out on the screens in the terminal. DH and I both thought it strange that an airport was showing a disaster film!
Then we realised it was the rolling BBC news!
The horror struck us!.

I heard on the news last night that security is being tightened as the threat has been upgraded due to papers being found saying terrorists will do something to mark the anniversary. I hope the memorial events go without incident.

My thoughts are with those lost, the survivors and those who have lost near and dear ones emoticon

My heart goes out to those that lost loved ones, to those that are sick from inhaling the dust from the fall of the towers, to those that daily are reminded of this event.

I knew about the Towers, we had been watching that scroll on the news at work. Such a tragic, tragic day!

I hope the memorial events pass safely. The families, survivors, rescuers, everyone has suffered enough.

    Being on the west coast we were just waking up and our alarm clock went off to the radio guys talking about a plane crashing into the first tower. I got up and went to turn on the t.v. to see what was happening and saw the plane crash into the second tower. I went to work, which was at the outpatient psych unit at the time, and we had to work very, very hard to keep the t.v. off the news and on something light so that our already sensitive patients wouldn't be triggered for panic attacks or worse. Those of us who could spent the day in our offices listening to our radios and feeling horrified as the news kept coming. We were all glad to go home at the end of the day and be with our families. We will be praying for a safe end of the day tomorrow and for continued healing for those affected. Thanks for your post.

    I remember too, the feelings of despair, of being helpless to those who were jumping from windows and now continued prayer for survivors and those who lost dear ones. Praying now that we remember just how short and uncertain life is, and take the opportunity to mend relationships, help someone less fortunate, and just love without expecting something in return.
