Good Morning. Sunny here again, so we're hoping to avoid any of the rogue showers which are about. CC - Sounds like a successful trip. I like to travel but it's always good to get home. I think it was me who mentioned The Trossachs as a possibility for next year. Maybe as we've all been chatting lots about Scotland as a destination lately its got muddled somewhere. My OH has got out of bed aching after two long days of golf, and is vowing not to do two days together in future!
In reply to Original Goldfinch and Eagle-eye:
Hi OG, You probably don't know me since I normally have posted on the LG nest page, but have not for a couple seasons. I'm an ospreyholic from the US and have learned a lot from you UK osprey fans! I know a few folks here from back then, and am fitting back in slowly! Now that I am a few years retired, I thought I would have more time, but it seems I fill up whatever time I have... Good to meet you all.
Original Goldfinch and Eagle-eye said:CC – don’t know who you are! Did you appear when I was “off sick”? Glad the trip was okay.

CC: Re retirement, I've no idea how I managed to work a fulltime job and do everything else back then. I've a horrible feeling I was far more efficient.....
OG: Is that a three-way choice of mattresses or bodies? :-) CC is in upstate New York, conveniently close to the Canadian border where Diane and I can meet up in case things get flakey again in the U.S. - or should I say even more flakey? Apropos of nothing in your post I see that in Germany, where they're about to hold elections, the far-right party has lost some of its clout compared to several years ago.
PatO: Hope nobody at the Synod detects your extra-curricular chatting.
Looks like daughter and granddaughter - and possibly Ms. D - will be here for the night next Tuesday. Daughter got in a fight with a picket fence about 6 weeks ago (she lost) and has been going to wound care folks in AZ. It's almost healed but it's a long drive so g/daughter will bring her Also looks like we'll be having an impromptu and early b/day celebration for them both, with grandson coming by after work. I still expect to be in AZ mid-October for a few days when great-gdaughter will be off school for a week. All a bit up in the air, but that's families for you.
