Evening to all my chums. Well, our visitors have gone now to an even more far-flung place - New Zealand's South Island.  We had a really lovely time with them, but it was all too short.  Now we've got the "post-visitors blues".  You know what I mean.  After all the catching up, chit-chat, outings here and there, reminiscing about old times, and lots of laughter, suddenly the house is quiet and we don't know what to do with ourselves.  After a couple of days of  heat and bushfires cramping our style, we were able to do the things we'd planned and really enjoyed the company. 

LIZ, I HOPE YOU'RE FULLY RECOVERED FROM YOUR TUMMY UPSET.  HANG IN THERE GIRL, SPRING IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER.  :-*   

SCOTLAND, LOVELY TO HEAR FROM YOU.  HOPE YOU'RE WELL AND I SEE YOU'RE KEEPING BUSY AS USUAL.  "SIN MY SOUL" IS AN EXPRESSION I HAVEN'T HEARD IN MANY A LONG DAY. LOL.   :-*

MCD, YOUR SON'S VISIT TO SCOTLAND AND MEETING UP WITH TAYLOR'S ITALIAN HOSTS SOUNDS BRILLIANT.  HOPE YOU AND MOE ARE KEEPING WELL.  :-*

RUBY, HOPE YOU AND BOBBY ARE WELL.  SORRY TO HEAR YOU'VE LOST ANOTHER FRIEND OF THE BAND.   :-*

JACKIE, YOU'LL BE HOME BY NOW I THINK.  HOPE YOU AND I HAD A FANTASTIC TIME AND ARE KEEPING WELL.  :-*
              HI SARAH, GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU. THIS IS MONDAY MARCH 11TH. WE ARE STILL IN ALABAMA. WE LEAVE FOR NEWMARKET ON FRIDAY15TH. HOPE ALL IS WELL.    *

JACKIE, I'VE JUST SEEN YOUR REPLY AND I JUST NOTICED THAT WHEN I WAS TYPING "VI" THE V DIDN'T PRINT AND IT CAME OUT AS "YOU AND I"  INSTEAD OF "YOU AND VI".  :D   THE KEYBOARD ON MY LAPTOP IS PRETTY WORN OUT AND OFTEN MISSES LETTERS.   :D
I HOPE YOU AND VI ENJOY THE REST OF YOUR TIME IN ALABAMA.  :-*

Hi, Was just catching up with all the goings on, Sorry I have not been on much as I am having a lot of wee jobs done on the house. So you know how that it always end up taking longer than you think. Just about to start painting the guest room as I am having visitors from home in the summer and want to freshen it up, But I woke up during the night with a sore throat and a but of a dry cough. So its soup for lunch and lots of home made lemon drink, and hope that it will pass. Take care all. 
You will never know where you are going.
If you do not remember where you come from.

HI LIZ,  WE NEED SOME SUN TO BRIGHTEN US UP, THIS WINTER HAS GONE ON TOO LONG. ::)

I GUESS YOU'RE CHECKING THE BEDS ON LINE, YOU WILL HAVE A LOT TO CHOOSE FROM. WE BOUGHT ONE JUST OVER A YEAR AGO FROM SLEEP COUNTRY, THEY WERE VERY GOOD, THEY DIDN'T CHARGE FOR DELIVERY AND THEY CARRIED THE BED UP STAIRES, TOOK AWAY THE OLD ONE AND THERE WAS NO EXTRA CHARGE.
 GOOD LUCK IN YOUR SEARCH :-* :-*

HI LIZ, I DIDN'T THINK ABOUT YOU NEEDING A SPECIAL BED, I WAS THINKING IT WAS A NEW  MATTRESS YOU NEEDED. YOU'RE LUCKY YOU HAVE SUCH GOOD FRIENDS TO HELP YOU.  I HOPE YOU FIND WHAT YOU NEED. :) THIS HAS BEEN A VERY LAZY DAY FOR ME, I DID LAUNDRY YESTERDAY AND DID THE IRONING TODAY AND THAT'S ME FINISHED,  FOR A FEW DAYS ANYWAY  :D.

 IT LOOKS LIKE WE'RE GOING TO GET RAIN BUT IT'S BETTER THAN THE WHITE STUFF ;)  SEE YOU LATER LOVE  :-*

RUBY  I LIKE TO HEAR MY FRINDS  SAYING THEY ARE TAKING IT EASY AND PUTTING THEIR FEET UP.   HA.  MAKES ME FEEL BETTER ABOUT ME DOING IT HA.  HOW DO YOU DO YOUR IRONING, MY FRIEND DOES HER'S  WHILE SITTING AND WATCHING TV.  MY NIECE USE TO TELL ME THAT'S HOW SHE DID HER'S  BECAUSE OF HER BACK.  GOOD IDEA.  I WILL HAVE TO BUY A NEW MATTRESS AS WELL AND I WAS SHOCKED AT THE COST OF THEM FOR THESE BEDS, ADD ANOTHER $1OOO, BUT  IT WILL PROBABLY BE MY LAST ONE AND I NEED  A COMFORTABLE BED AS I SPEND A LOT OF TIME IN IT.  YAWN.  HA.  IT SAID WE WOULD  HAVE SNOW BUT THE TEMP IS SUPPOSED TO GO HIGH TOMORROW.  NOT LONG NOW TILL SPRING.  I FOUND OUT TODAY THEY ARE HAVING A CELEBRATION ON SATURDAY FOR ST. PATRICK'S DAY.  BYOB.  .  LIZ  XX

HI ALL, I HOPE EVERYONE IS WELL  *

LIZ, IT'S NOT EASY PICKING A MATTRESS, THERE ARE TOO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM AND THEY'RE MUCH HIGHER THAN THE OLD ONES, IT TOOK ME AWHILE TO GET USED TO OURS, MY FEET BARELY TOUCH THE FLOOR. :D  BUT I'M SURE YOUR'S WILL BE  A SPECIAL ONE TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS.  :-*

THAT WAS SOME RAIN LAST NIGHT, IT WASHED AWAY SOME SNOW BUT NOT ENOUGH, OUR STREET STILL HAS PILES. IT'S NICE AND MILD THIS MORNING  SO MAYBE IT WILL MELT SOME MORE  :) SEE YOU LATER  :-*

RUBY,  IT'S NOT EASY BEING SMALL, THAT SHOULD HAVE GONE GREEN. ( YOU KNOW FROM SESAME ST.) I DON'T THINK IT'S SPELT RIGHT.   HA.  WHEN ROISIN GOT HER NEW BED WITH THE HIGH MATTRESS I COULD HARDLY GET ON IT AND THAT'S WHEN I COULD HA.  THE MATTRESS HAS TO  FIT THOSE BEDS SO I SUPPOSE THAT'S WHY THEY ARE EXPENSIVE. OH WELL   I NEED IT  SO THERE'S NO USE IN  COMPLAINING.  ANYWAY THEY ARE HAVING A  "THING" DOWNSTAIRS  TOMORROW NIGHT FOR ST. PATRICK'S DAY,  I'M SURPRISED HOW LATE IT IS AND MOST OF THE  TIME THEY HAVE THESE THINGS  IN THE AFTERNOON.    IT'S FROM 7pm TO 10:30pm RATHER LATE.  HAS ANYONE BEEN WATCHING THE TENNIS.  WITH MY NEW TV I CAN SEE EVERYTHING NOW.  MY GUY, ROGER F. , IS IN THE SEMI'S THAT'S TICKLED ME.  ANYWAY TIME FOR SUPPER.  HAVE A GOOD EVENING RUBY AND ANYONE ELSE LISTENING IN HA.  LIZ   XX

THEY WILL CONTINUE WITH THE CONCERTS  :)   SO TOMORROW WE CAN SIT BACK AND ENJOY THE ENTERTAINMENT. :)

WE HAD SNOW EARLIER THIS MORNING AND NOW THE SUN IS TRYING TO GET THROUGH THE DARK CLOUDS, SO THAT'S YOUR FORECAST FOR THE DAY  :D
