HAPPY NEW WEEK!
I hope everyone has a peaceful, safe, content week!
Be sure to check back to the end of last week's thread, to see Lindy's grandchildren photos and the last posts!
Lindy: I so enjoyed seeing your granddaughter studying the calculator so intently. We need more women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics)! Yay for her!
AQ: I hope you feel more positive soon. Just remember: You and I are tough rural folk. We are people of the land. When the going gets rough, we just grind our heels into the dirt and face the wind. Take care of yourself, dearie.
Thank you FRIENDS for your supportive words. Given time my latest load of miseries will pass.
LINDA – How nice to see a cutie wearing a dress, an old-fashioned smocked dress too, rather than the shapeless (though convenient) onsies.
Drilling noises from Grand Design’s interior, on Sunday!. Now the roof is just about finished, it is hard to see any progress.
Just a thought

Evening all: Thank you Diane: Very sweet of you to consistently start us off. t's much appreciated but please don't feel obligated. AQ and I usually come puttering along at some point. :-)
Lindybird: Lovely photos and like Diane I was also intrigued by the photo with the calculator. Children really do seem to have an immediate affinity for techie things. I also liked the photo of them all waving bye-bye. :-) If I miss you tomorrow, have a lovely relaxing time in Wales.
AQ: I do hope you're soon restored to your funny self soon. Hugs from here.
OG: Indeed, the logistics of getting Ms. D back home was the question left hanging when g'daughter and I hung up the phone the other evening.
Verrry slow day; didn't really 'wake up' until 6 p.m. Did manage to make it to the library to pick up a book. Planning another pretty slow day tomorrow.
Take care everyone.
In reply to Annette in SoCal:
Thank you, DIANE! Good luck with your tax forms.. AQ - Hugs from me, also. Enjoy your time with the little ones - have I remembered correctly? ROSY - No, I haven't been on a bus since lockdown and very rarely before that. At some point I may have to give in, though! ANNETTE - When you wrote about going to the beach, for some reason the poem 'Sea Fever' came to mind. It was one of the things that we had to learn at school. Quite what the connection is between blue skies and a Californian beach and grey skies and wind is, I'm not sure. Maybe the mention of whales in the poem? Enjoy your time with the family. I believe that Pheonix is badly affected by the virus? But Prescott Valley would seem to be a bit away from there. LINDY - So good that you could see the young ones! Loved the photos. Enjoy Wales x OG - I would imagine that M and S ready meals would be fine instead of WFF. I eat them at least once a week. Sorry that J is feeling under the weather. Does he help in the garden? PAT - hope you are well and enjoying the golf, once more. Youngest family is coming here again today. I protested but to no avail. SIL will be going offshore in a few days time and he wants to do a few garden jobs for me. They will be here for roast chicken dinner. I think that the current situation is affecting many folk in a negative way. I'm worrying about EVERYTHING, not just the normal ups and downs of life. Oh, and if I didn't know before, I know now that Mr Trump wore a face mask yesterday!. It was the first sentence of every news bulletin every half hour on the World Service News last night!
