Don't mind me! lol

Decided we made the right decision in not travelling today, have just watched BBC News
in Wales, the roads (and railways) are pretty
bad, trains cancelled due to flooding, and
a lot of damage to property.

More to come overnight. Quite safe here, but
the roads are risky.

On the plus side, caught up with some home improvements on this wet day which have been in
the pipeline for some time.

Hope everybody is fit and had a pleasant day.

Cheerio for now.

yes saw that too El...
and they expect WALES to be bad tonight,
I think you made a very wise decision in not
traveling.

I just watched the documentary on Chanel 4,
re two adult brothers who were born
perfectly normal grew up normal,
but later regressed to a childlike state,

[some rare brain disease]
there is no cure and it's progressive,
VERY difficult on the parents who are both
looking after them.

Anyway, tuck in all those lovely
pussycats and sleep well, dear El.

<quoted text>Good points Franko,

only thing tho.. the commercialism can be so overdone at Christmas.

I dislike intensely those who wait outside a store to almost
entrap people coming out into giving..

does it ever occur to these people that many
of us might be involved in charitable events where
it is done privately and far away from the public eye.

Still tho'
the bottom line is,
they mean well.
Out here they stand in the cross streets and solicit. That's what bothers me. They are in the middle of the street and cause traffic jams, dangerous conditions and couple of times it was foggy in the early morning and nearly one standing in the street collecting money.

However, what rubs me is where are the charitable folks in May thru September? The need is still great then. I know from experience after serving in a soup kitchen during those months. Holiday season, people are stepping all over one another; post holiday season, CUE THE CRICKET NOISE!
They give up their week nights & serve at the weekly church community dinners for folks who don't have a meal; they bag groceries in the food pantries so the families who need it get some basics; and the fold and organize clothing & shoes for the Catholic Charities clothes closet so those who have nothing can be warm and well clothed.

There have to be more, I don't think I'm using the best search phrases. But at least the one employee was trampled to death and that's one too many. Shoppers and workers shouldn't have to worry about getting killed in a stampede.

Thank you {{{Cuz Luke}}}...
and hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving yesterday...:)
Sure did enjoy food and time with the 2 local daughters and son-in-law-to-be! I was assigned to bring dinner rolls. The hostess had ham, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and persimmon pudding [very most cake, more like]. The youngest took the task of making green bean casserole.

Viewing TV, enjoyed a broadcast of the [U.S.] National Dog Show from Philadelphia, PA. Seven or eight category winners were determined and then the "Best In Show" which was judged to be an American Foxhound. Coloring of white, black, and tan/brown was such that I kidded around with the "kids" that they were trying trick us and the winner was actually a giant beagle! They wouldn't have any of that.:)

About time to "hit the hay" for a good night's sleep. Wishes to all for a terrific Tuesday!

Hi there Groucho - glad to hear all has gone well with your surgery. Knees can be very tricky bits of kit, so delighted it has all worked out so well. Now make sure you're not a stranger!

Still raining here Tone...put back the cinema visit.
Morning ER and all other good people on here. We are due for showers today and then they say it's going to be fine for the rest of the week - I'll believe it when I see it! Assuming we get that, will try to send a little of it up your way.

Good Morning Grace,

They were not wrong in their forecast, did you see
North Wales on Sky News this morning? The river Elwy
burst it's banks, residents were awoken in the early hours
and told to evacuate their homes. Hard on those who have
no insurance, it always is, I know.
I didn't watch that programme, more is the pity, it would
be enlightening, but how very strange the condition should
surface in adulthood. What a shock for the parents.
The pussy cats have cabin fever..as have I..lol...but they are
all fine and the birds are enjoying the garden to themselves.

'Morning Quincy...that's terrible, I'm surprised they are not
stopped from doing that. It is actually illegal to speak to
people when collecting here, I did it at the time my brother
had handed over his shop to a charity...we offered the use of
the shop to Age Concern but they hummed and harred, so we put
it at the disposal of the RSPCA and ran it for them.
It was interesting, and a good way to get to know the local people
as we were fairly new to the area. They were very charitable, I will never forget one lady who cleaned the public toilets by the bus station. She collected coins people had dropped, cleaned them until they were gleaming, put them in a little bag and donated them to the shop. You could not put a price on that form of charity. Another lady donated her organ, she had upgraded and rather than sell it, gave it to the shop. Amazing people, salt of the earth.

Thank you dear Luke and Good Morning.
Unfortunately there is more to come, oh welp, c'est la vie.
We are quite lucky here so far, fingers crossed.
North Wales made the national news this morning, a whole village
had to be evacuated in the early hours of the morning, their homes
damaged, some uninsured, but as they are the first to say, at least they themselves and their families are safe.
