You can handle another one if it is necessary Tally - If I were you, I'd be more worried about the brake repair! I'm stuck linked up to the poison machine for another four hour top up session today, so catching up with the Kitchen. Stay strong my friend, both of us know what resilience is from our pasts - I am certain you can come through another procedure if it is required. Now where's that darned Hannibal Lector machine gone?
Good morning Tony. You and Tally are tough old birds so hang in and get well

Unfortunately, it seems we're all 'under the weather' in some fashion - some of us more serious than others.

Sorry to hear that your surgery didn't go as planned. Hope the news gets better for you ... and soon.

<quoted text>I wouldn't mind, but I seem to get a strange craving for fava beans and a nice chianti - have always enjoyed liver!!!

Think the final could be Murray vs Djokovic - be an interesting one as Murray hasn't dropped a set yet in the competition. Sad to see Laura Robson go, but she will be one to watch for the future - at 19 she has plenty of time, assuming she can maintain her motivation. Serena Williams defeat was a surprise, but then this has been a tournament of surprises, so who knows what else may be in store?
You're spectacular Tony! Like a few if my friends currently having a tough time health wise, you seem to have a sense of humor about and positive attitude. That goes a long way.

And hey, better to look like Sir Anthony Hopkins -- he's aged quite well in my book, though I'm sure he's older than you by decades -- than Jaws of the James Bond franchise ;)

Be well

I hope you will excuse my 'multi-post' last night
but I had had a slight accident at the end of the
day..a heavy metal pole fell on top of my head...
can you believe it, had been shinning up and down ladders most of the day, securing the roof of the new shed etc., when about to finish and come indoors, that happened.
The good news I remained conscious and in full command of my faculties, and was able to proceed with making the evening meal. lol

Dear me, it never rains but it pours.

Speaking of which, the Heavens have just opened,
and it's raining.

Wimbledon, as you say Tony, full of surprises, who would have thought Serena in particular would go out at this stage, sad to see Laura go too.

Roll on Saturday for the Rugby, I appear to have caught the bug!

<quoted text>Good morning. It is a record 65 this morning so it should be a great day. Hard to believe tomorrow is the 4th and we will be in the 80's. This is a lovely bunch of folks who respect each other and are interested in all points of view :)
Hey there Denny! Enjoy your day. Hope Mrs Denny has recovered well.

How are the dogs handling the heat? Didn't you say you have standard poodles? Mine are ok so far but it hasn't been that hot. It's the fireworks I'm concerned about. My old gal is getting over sensitive to loud noise, not that they were ever ok with fireworks.

Some folks sedate their animals. Not my thing.

I just got them clipped so the heat won't bother them too much. Are you ready for all the fireworks:) I just sit in the front yard and watch them while I drink cold beer :)

All this Snowden stuff is so over blown. They talk about the terrible damage he has done to our security. What is terrible is the violation of our constitution. I am reading a book that was published two years ago. In it they said that NSA was reading every email, tweet and post on those big Cray computers. Some secret :)

Quincy..have you thought about getting a herbal sedative for your dogs? When Guy Fawkes night came round I would give mine a herbal
tablet, I forget the name of it now, but it really relaxed them without any side effects.
I used to show a cat also who was not very amenable to picked up
by the judges, one time, and one time only, I gave him this herbal stuff the morning of the Show, and I am ashamed to say he was a
pussy cat, purring for the judges, licking their hands...I felt so mean I had done that to him, but it wore off by the time we got home, he was his usual beligerent (but adorable) self.
They do work and could perhaps save them any stress.

One time I had the pleasure of watching Bastille Day celebrated
from my balcony in the beautiful resort of Le Lavendou.
Night time, and fireworks set off from boats in the harbour, it was a wonderful occasion. Just me and my little boy.

Thanks El! Much better - I've never seen an injury turn so many colors! And it's not pretty!!
Mighty night!
Glad to hear it is improving Quincy....they say it's a good
thing that the bruising comes out immediately, from there on
it is on the mend. Sounds a real nasty injury for all that,
you have our sympathy there.(I am starting to talk in terms
of 'we'....worrying, lol)

The travel pages in my Sunday newspaper were all about Chicago
I have cut it out and kept it...absolutely top of my Wish List
places to visit. And Persons!....:)

Hi Lady Eleanor...
I am happy to report that I have picked two peppers...
;o)
4 cucumbers and 16 green tomatoes..
Today I gave my neighbor 4 big green tomatoes so she can fix some fried green tomatoes..
I have red, yellow and melon colored gladiolas blooming so far... It's funny how the red ones all came up first.. and the ones I planted last year are getting huge! Their flower spikes are really tall (over 4ft.)and full of buds.. I don't know what color they are yet but whatever they turn out to be they are going to be beautiful... I am going to have to secure them so they don't fall over.. I put in a cute little fleur de lis wire fence behind the gladiolas that are planted behind the roses and hostas...
The hostas are all bloomed out too so it is really a wall of color..
The pack are getting restless as it is almost time to go out for that last walk of the day..
I hope that you and the pride are all feeling fit as a fiddle and that your weather is being nice..
Sending you and yours all of my best wishes...
((Love-n-Hugs))
@}-'--,---
When I look at the front yard I always think of your beautiful garden... and I can only hope that mine will be as beautiful as yours when I get finished with it...
Good Afternoon Dear Rose...following day
you know how much I enjoy hearing about your gardening skills
and life in general...your garden sounds wonderful, how are
going on in this heat, have you any sprinkler bans or shortage
of water? No matter how much rainfall we have, farther inland
we always seem to have a 'hose-pipe' ban, it's ridiculous.
My Glads are struggling, the Roses are superb this year, three
out of four survived the move, and seem all the better for it.
I haven't bothered with veggies this year....the other week the
Diabetic Society were manning a stall in aid of their branch
in the foyer of the local supermarket, I bought two books and
two tomato plants, which are thriving. Matter of fact, inspired
by your wonderful post this morning I re-potted them and fed them
as they had been neglected I am ashamed to say, whilst I have been helping do this latest DIY effort. They are happy now.
The books were about the most borijg I have ever read, I persevered with the first one right to the very end, hoping it would improve, it didn't, the second one I read a chapter and discarded it. I will take them to the charity shop, along with some other bits and bobs.
Fried Green Tomatoes....my mind immediately goes to the movie...
when you say green, are they a special variety or just unripe?
Always wondered about that.
For now my friend adios.
Much Love to you and yours.

<quoted text>Good morning El. The nation is all watching the George Zimmerman trial. He killed Trevon Martin. They keep trying to make this about race rather than a mugging. NBC even went so far as to alter the 911 call from Zimmerman. The operator ask if Martin was white, black or Hispanic. They cut out the question and used Zimmerman's remark I think he is black. The thing is Zimmerman is Hispanic All the many murders and for some reason this has become a huge trial
Not something that is news over here Denny...please keep
me posted...
