i have a feeling she just needed an "ear" - ya know? someone to talk to and u were it. i see that where i work, there are a lot of elderly tenants and they stop by to talk, sometimes trying not to be obvious that they just have a need to talk. they're feeling lonely so they come in and might ask me which curtains i would choose for their kitchen, ask if i would sew a button on their coat for them, or ask me to get their packages from their car and then chat away and away and away... lol
its just their "need" to stay connected somehow to the outside world and i guess i represent that to them. but i look at it like this, some day i hope when the need is there for me, hopefully someone will be there for me too.
but! they might end up with sore ears. LOL

'Morning Pretty Feet....
I know what you are saying, I would feel bad making an issue of it if that were the case though. Life is different here in Wales to what it
was in England, here, whereas in England we are much more reserved, and non more so than myself, the Welsh are not like that, they speak to total strangers and I have learnt to do the same. And if one endeavours to speak their language, then you are a friend for life. Not that I am fluent but I try in view of the history and in view of the attitude towards the Welsh from many of my visiting countrymen. Much as I dislike to admit it.
So really, she was advising me out of the goodness of her heart, and no way would I throw her advice in her face. The laugh was, I went in the store with a list, and came out with a completely different list altogether..:)
I opened a charity shop here shortly after moving into this village,
and local people would come in simply for a chat...one lady, who is now in a home, used to bring me a cup of tea from the cafe down the street.
There was one fellow, had learning difficulties, on his way to the day centre, each morning would wait on the doorstep of the shop to wish me a Bora Da (G'Morning) and give me a kiss. Late afternoon, he and some of the others at the centre, called in specifically to tell me about their day.
I miss running that shop..it was like being thrown into the Lion's Den on that first day in a strange place, but I made so many friends there
it was the best thing I did to ease into the area.

Good morning El! Excellent choices for movie outings though be warned they are both rumored to be very long. Our choice was also either Les Mis or Lincoln. Much to my surprise Lincoln was amazing with an incredible cast. Enjoy!

<quoted text>egg in a soup is pretty good ... I often have the chinese noodle soup and add an egg in it ... you have to break it up so that it hardens in little chinks .. this is just to add a little extra protien into the meal. I also add salami or chunks of ham sometimes ...
Good morning, franko ... eggs in soup, yuck ... maybe over easy/medium with hash browns, ham & whole wheat toast ... never in my soup, lol ... maybe in my chef salad and never in my soup again, lol ... deviled eggs, of course ... but yet again, never in my soup, hahaha ... get where I'm going with this?---> never in my soup ... I guess just the thought of it, yuck!... Guess you might need to know I only eat the yoke of it and do not eat the white part ... I always pick out the white part and set it aside ... IDK why I never liked the white part of the egg ... I go straight for the cholesterol straight to the arteries part of the egg, the yoke, lol ... Is that TMI? hahaha ...

Good morning, P ... There have been so many flu incidents this year reported in hospitals than in years past ... doctors are encouraging patients to get a second flu shot ... I got the crud in November and then again in January ... that's what we called the first 'bout and the second 'bout that Denney and I were talking about ... thank goodness the second 'bout wasn't as bad as the first but most of all it was NOT the flu ... Got my flu shot in October ... thank G_d for small favors ... Stay healthy young lady! Peaceful and healthy vibes your way! FC <3 ...

Good morning, Quinny! Lincoln was an excellent movie ... I wouldn't mind seeing it again on the big screen ... As a matter of fact I think it's still showing on the big screen ...

Did you get a chance to watch Hawaii 5-O last night? It was pretty good ... A lot of one-liners as usual, Danno was pretty funny ... but I didn't get who the kid was playing next to him, his brother? nephew? Did you get who the kid was who at the end said he might want to become a CSI?

How are you this morning?... Good day to you ...

Good afternoon Lady El ... how is your day so far ... I started my Batman film yesterday afternoon and it's stuck in my DVD player waiting for me to finish so I think I will do so at this time ... I agree with you on the mad iconer ... I wish topix would just altogether take that feature away! Enjoy your day just the same! Love, FC <3 ...

Good Morning Quincy...we had snow last night so are playing safe
today. I WILL get to see these movies eventually. It's such
a journey to the multi-complex cinema.
Glad you enjoyed Lincoln..
Quentin Tarantino was a guest on my fave chat show, Graham Norton,
a clip of Django was shown, looks interesting. I like QT..he
seems a nice chap. Shy almost, in real life.

Good Morning Flower...my reaction struck me as funny later as I had just been saying that we English are reserved and non more so than me...haha
but sometimes stupidity like that gets to me. Not worth a reaction really.
How did you like the Batman movie? Be interested to know as I may get the dvd. Sadly one of our top stores who sell them has folded and they
have discounted everything, the internet has put them out of business.
The day has been great so far...busy...and I am about to make dinner just as soon as I leave here....
Enjoy the rest of your movie and the day..luvya
