Try reducing the size of the photo ... that usually works.

Long sleeves and gloves ... I've never suffered any ill effects from pulling them up and putting them in a bin or letting them dry out and burning them.

Thank you Pat ((hugs))  

Your son has a cat who is very precious to him ... my son has one as well ... they've been together through thick and thin and son has found it very hard to find a place to rent that will accept the cat ... thankfully this place belonging to friends has just become available

That's normal colour change for this time of year ... one of the wonderful features of  grapevines is the amazing autumn colouring ... some better than others.  

Mine does the same ... enjoy

Pat ... thanks for the thought 

I'm glad the day did happen ... son has had a hard time since the collapse of his marriage and consequently his business.  He was in a dark place for quite a while.  Now he's back doing what he does best, working in the music industry (sound engineer/production etc) and after a ten year gap old friends and colleagues are welcoming him with open arms ... lots of really exciting things are happening for him and he's so excited and I'm so relieved   Looks like a  working trip to Mumbai is on the cards for him if all goes well ...   

Moving out of the place he shared with the ex will hopefully be very cathartic

You would have thought the big company (based down in Essex) might have wondered why the small company they were taking over only had small lorries ... or did they, in in their superiority, think it was because they were a small company?  It was because all the little market towns in Suffolk have little back lanes and back alleys which are difficult to man-oeuvre big lorries around.
