Another Blast from the Past

My daughter sent me this, reminding me of happy hours with her and her siblings many, many years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=km9lAkMD9rU

Re: Rosaboobie Traveling Again!

I'm a bit late commenting, but I've just caught up with all the latest posts. Rosa, you certainly know how NOT to travel! Between the horrendous trip out and the disastrous trip back you could write a book. I'll bet the furry ones were pleased to see you again. Hope you're feeling better and that yo...

Re: Controlling?

Stella and JKEerrie, thanks for the smiles. Sounds like the plot for a book "The Sweet Subject and the Perpetrator - Or Best Laid Plans Oft Gang Agley" Oh, no, that one's already been done by R. Burns. Actually you sound like the Hub and me, although in reverse. He's a morning person and I...

Re: Wild Weather

The rain and flooding have caught up with us here in Ottawa. Houses are being evacuated on both sides of the Ottawa River and Emergencies being declared in communities up and down the river. We live about a mile from the river where we live, so we're not too worried about actual flooding, but appare...

Re: Rosaboobie Traveling Again!

My sister-in-law did that trip and loved every minute of it. Good to hear Rosa is on her travels again. Bon Voyage, Rosa!

Re: Wild Weather

Sounds like you've been through the wars! I know there's been loss of life in Texas and elsewhere. Hope it all settles down for the foreseeable future. I believe your new President is a climate change denier, I wonder what he's making of your weather now? Incidentally, I meant my comment about our s...

Wild Weather

Are our American friends all safe? We've been getting horrific weather reports re hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, etc. etc. We've been having heavy rain here in Ontario, which has done us the favor of showing us a small leak around the chimney, but nothing like you've been experiencing.

Re: Feeders ready

A couple of weeks ago we saw something I've never seen before - a flock of 40 to 50 robins, all on the grass in front of the church across the street. At first we thought they must be another type of bird, grackle or something, but the flaming red breast gave it away. I Googled and apparently this c...

Re: Rosaboobie?

So glad you're back, RB. Place just wasn't the same without you! Time will heal the foot and, maybe, a return visit to the doctor might convince him to alter the claim form? Or is it too late to claim? Worth a try anyway as it's an awful lot of money. That bill from Social Services sounds awfully hi...

Re: Rosaboobie?

Thanks for the update, Drac, I was starting if we'd done something to offend her! Rosa, if you're reading this, please know that we all miss you and your tales of Orcadian life.
