WEEKLY CHAT (Non-Osprey) JULY 18, 2021

  • AQ - I'm sorry that you missed the Tour de France the other night.
    The cyclists passed near to my brother's home in Brittany recently. He sent me a pic. Lots of Breton flags being waved around and one lonely Cornish flag held by guess who?! Well at least both flags are black and white !
  • EE -- Thanks for the update - I'm sorry that OG will have to remain in hospital for longer than you both hoped, but as they say "She's in the best place" - even though the food probably leaves a lot to be desired. Thinking of you all.
  • In reply to Original Goldfinch and Eagle-eye:

    EE- Please give OG my very best thoughts and wishes for her quick recovery!
  • EE, please give OG all the best from Clare and I.

    The hospital food has been pretty good on my last hospital stays to the point of my eating three meals a day (highly unusual for me at home).

  • EE: Huge fat hugs from here for OG (and you!) and I also can imagine hospital food and routine is not sitting well. Let's hope they can get her sorted as quickly as possible. Is the hospital local? Tell her Hi from all of us on here. Meanwhile, take care of yourself and J.

    SunnyKate: Thanks for the tip on inserting the "J" :-)

    Limpy:  Good to see you.  I hope Clare doesn't take your healthy hospital appetite as a reflection on her cooking.   :-)

    Ms. D and I are off to see my grandson for the day; just up the road in Arroyo Grande.   

  • Watching the last few laps of the Tour de France. Wonder if AQ is still up down under.
  • Wow, it's been hot here - retired to lay on the bed after lunch where it was coolest. This morning we went on a nearby beach and it was the most crowded we've ever seen it - people setting up camp seemingly for the day, but glad to see that those with children had some sort of tent or shelter from the sun as there is none there otherwise.

    The view across the sands as the tide was just turning.

  • View of the crocosmia we planted a few years ago, from our decking. There is now a massive buddlea behind it which smells divine now it's blossoming.

  • PAT - I loved looking at Polesden Lacey. Thank you again. 

  • Good - I thought you would enjoy it :)
