HELLO FORKERS!

Winter - don't think I'd be able to pass one of today's driving tests.  Its the "hazard perception" quiz that gets me every time.  Whats wrong with being aware of lampposts and pillar boxes as potential threats to your well being

 Just had to google Millenium Falcon ....sci fi not my strong point .....used to hide behind the sofa for Dr Who and Star Trek, and never really got over it

Morning all  Didn't expect to be first this morning - had a mini lie-in on account of the fact that I don't have to get in the car (wfh this morning, so the commute involves a short trip down the stairs)

Got this afternoon off as some old school friends are coming over - we keep in touch by letters in birthday/christmas cards, but haven't seen either for about a decade

Do I get a prize for the earliest use of the word Ch****mas this year ????

Thats the trouble Joybell - this thread is disastrous for my bank balance.  Thankfully I already have the President and Warsaw Nike .....but nowhere near flowering yet.  Yours are looking wonderful, so the anticipation is building.

Hi OL - i'm still around ....well just. Great news on the goosegogs .....I'm sure plants respond to those "you've got ONE more year" threats

Great news about mum Liri.  Carnegie Hall .....we once stayed at a hotel just opposite.  We had a sneakypeek in the lobby at the decor ....very impressive.  Will you be in the audience Lizzie, or supporting in the wings?  i've heard wonderful things about the new skywalk gardens in NY (i think its called something like that) - will you have time for sightseeing?

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.
