That was nasty....I lost my 'mouse'.

Back again to wish All a very Good Morning.

A dry crisp day here and the sun is out.

Tomorrow is the monthly check up - will let you know how that goes. Nice to see PP on here, she doesn't drop by that often.
Great to see you are doinf so well Tony :)

Good afternoon/evening Kitchen-eers!

I've followed news about the deadly storms lashing through the Isles and the Continent. Last I heard, after Denmark it was weakening and heading for Russia.

Saddened about the lives lost; particularly the lad washed away in south England. That's got to be devastating to his family ... ne'er to be seen again for closure.

Earl Grey ... hot!(please)

That is tragic Grace and so sad. I love trees but fear them too. A woman and her baby were killed a few years back when a rotting tree that was weakened by a previous storm, fell on the mother and her child as they were walking through a park. Just a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Who can understand such tragedies? A neighbor's tree next door to us was struck by lightening about 5 years ago. Luckily, no one was near the tree at the time. Nature can be so unpredictable, mysterious and yet beautiful.
Well said. Hi 60's chic,
I also think of a kind of destiny,
the split second timing of all these
tragedies, just being there at that particular moment in time..

Mysterious indeed, and no telling when such an event might
touch ANY of us.. hopefully not..

Shivers:)

Anyway, very good to see you.

Good Morning to All the folk who frequent the Kitchen.

Here we are, the last day of October, a;most two months
away from Christmas.(sorry, I don't 'do' Halloween)
but a Happy Halloweeen to those who do.

Don't mean to be cast a cloud, but this year has been a
difficult one to say the least in our cat family.
We have nursed, and lost, five pecious pets this one year.

The trouble when they all become old tgether.
This has grounded us completely, not complaining too
bitterly as the Snowdon National Park is not such a
bad place to be grounded.

But starting tomorrow, the 1st of November, we are
taking a month out for ourselves.

So from this evening then, I shall love you and leave you for one whole month. Making visits to the National
Trust properties of which we are members, visiting friends and family, and just chillin'.

As GRACE says,you never know what's round the corner, so enjoy life while you can!

TONY...all the very best today...hoping for good news from you.

PRINCESS HEY...missed you....along with QUINCY....

See you in December, God willing.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!

Halloween which originated over here,
is always obviously very popular around here.

Later, I'll enjoy the little children coming round
in their fancy costumes doing trick or treat.

The weather's good too so fingers crossed.

Sorry to hear 'twas such a tough year for the cats,
as you say all aging together doesn't help!

To wish you a very successful and well deserved break
El, hope you thoroughly enjoy your time out.

We'll keep the KITCHEN going..
and promise not to run up any bills in your absence:)

Take care & enjoy.

Good Morning Grace and HAPPY HALLOWEEN to you and to everyone on Offbeat! Unfortunately I missed Trick or Treat night this year. In fact, I forgot the exact date yesterday and bought a huge combination bag of Reese's candy thinking that Trick or Treat was last night. Now I'm stuck with all of this candy but it just so happens that my hubby loves Reese's peanut butter cups. It's too bad he already saw the bag because there's no way I can hide it from him now, lol.
