HELLO FORKERS! September Edition

Morning all.

That's magnificent, Chicky.

No tea, running water, heating, in a cave, Fairy.

Our friends are going this morning and we are going to a Committee meeting.

Hot today, we had salad for lunch. Lots of wasps about.

When my shoulder is bad I lie on the other one and support the bad one with a pillow to stop arm flopping. Trouble starts when I roll over in my sleep. Can't sleep on my back. Mouth drops open either snore or it gets too dry and wakes me up. Oh the joys of being 27!

My brother was recently diagnosed with Lymphoma, just started Chemo. Maybe I shouldn't put that here, should be on the Worries and Troubles thread. Perhaps I've already mentioned it.

What a horrible shock, Hosta, I hope he is managing to cope with life and his children.

I'm another one with a dicky shoulder. Doc says I have chronic tendonitis and he told me I wouldn't be able to play tennis again some time ago. But this year it's been worse and I'm on painkillers at night. Trouble is the bad shoulder is the side I always slept on.

Is this a butternut squash plant?!? (And how to care for it...)

Although the plant looks like a butternut squash, the fruit isn't. It looks more like some sort of pumpkin.

Gosh your Doctor starts early Dove. Mine starts at 9am.

BM, not Matty (although it sometimes is), it's Lottie. She used to post a few years ago.

Nighties all.

Glad you are having a wonderful time, Chicky. I hope breakfast was yummy.

Morning all.

An old forker friend is coming to stay today.

Hello all. Back from Bordeaux. English Bring and Share lunches are always so good.

That must be a good sign Lantana, they don't expect it to hurt.

Steve, my preserving pan is aluminium, used it since I was in my twenties, don't think I've got dementia, but my friends may say otherwise!

We aren't married either, both widowed, but French paperwork, inheritance laws etc. are so complicated. But we did have a celebration in the garden with our close friends, families and a vicar friend and we made promises to each other.

Those who don't have grasses!

Phormiums don't survive the winter in my part of Dordogne. Tried three so far, all dead. Amazing to think of them surviving in Scotland! But it can be bitterly cold here and horribly wet in winter.

Just watched the programme http://www.kieronwilliamson.com/  We went to the gallery exhibiting his work in Holt, brilliant, bought 2 prints, all we could afford. His paintings are now selling for thousands.
