Hello Sally. I haven't seen your name on this forum before so if you are new, welcome.  If not, I'm an idiot.

I thought that extremely poignant GG. Really liked it.

I personally was subjected to unpleasantness from a member on this forum, just because I posted something they didn't agree with.  I don't always agree with what is posted, but it's their opinion and who am to challenge it.  Each to their own.

How lovely Nutcutlet.  Have you had any contact at all, via Skype?  Find that a great way of keeping in touch when family are so far away.  The only problem I have is that you can see yourself on the screen!  Not always a good sight.

Have a fun time.

My Dad kept chickens and rabbits after the War.  I remember there being 2 lovely black rabbits.  I also remember my Dad killing them.  It was if one knew what was going to happen and kept up the most awful noise which upset my Dad too, but they were food.  I never ate them then or since.

I have graves all over my garden.  Numerous rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and a huge Koi. which still bears a cross marking its grave.  My son was so upset when it died.  Also have a snake, Prucilla, bought by same son but who, without me, would never have survived (the snake)!  I used to have to keep mice in my freezer to defrost and feed her.  The things you do for children. (Note, did not use the term 'kids').

I will not get started on cats except to say that I detest the ginger tom who lives next door.  My garden is his territory.  He has ruined where all my alpines are planted, despite me putting rose cuttings down. 'Nuff said.

Morning all. Early for me today as we have changed to a new provider, or whatever they call them, who will call between 8 and 1.  What's the betting it is 1!

Re Verdun's good deed today, I listen to the radio a lot and the last few days have listened to the plight of many people who will be affected by the current benefit changes. It's not until you hear individual's plight that you realise the enormity of all this. My heart goes out to so many who are genuinely in need and I am so thankful that I am 'comfortable'.  I can't imagine how they are going to cope. 

On that serious note, I hope you all have a good day.

You shouldn't have said that BB.  You've opened the floodgates. My mum was once asked whether I had been vaccinated with a gramophone needle.  Can't think what they meant

Thanks for the advice.  Been a bitter wind today but will see how things pan out tomorrow. It's pink Verdun.

Fairygirl, she was a really lovely person who knew all there was to know about gardening but I always felt like a naughty girl when in her presence. I can't remember ever seeing her smile. It's not flowered for years but I just couldn't bring myself to throw it on the heap, hence back to a pot and chop right down 3 years ago. 

Keep looking at my fence but there's an awful lot there.  Don't want to start something I won't want to finish!

When I was young I could sit in the sun all day, every day.  Not any more.  Don't like the cold either so, all in all, that's how I became a recluse.

Bob as you feel the same about the heat, it's not a 'ladies' thing then. Is it an age thing Bob?

Sorry, this was a thread about Poenies.
