Yep, always. Greetings Falcon. We've exchanged before in "days of yore". Likely I was "Slow Hand Luke" or maybe another profile. Please refresh my memory pertaining to Falcon: American or Aussie variety?

I hope you viewed a royal good show.

I guess Prince Harry is demoted a slot in the heir hierarchy upon the arrival of the new Prince or Princess! Saw this evening that Kate is about 12 weeks along and the beans were spilled (though there were rumors by eagle-eyeing her recent habits) because of extreme morning sickness causing Prince William to drive her to hospital.

El,
Glad you were filled in with XFACTOR, I know these things come & go..
but i'd love to see JAHMENE win.. he seems an exceptional
type of person [in more ways than one]
There's another Liverpudlian, by name of CHRIS..
who has been bullied throughout..
by the public & judges alike [sadly]
I never HONESTLY knew why.. sometimes,
I feel folks don't bother to 'think' for themselves!
but follow whatever is fashionable either to hate or like!
I like him, he has an excellent voice..
I felt, from the start.
and has reached the final
FAIR PLAY! Chris!
and, if he won, I'd smile and be glad for him..
eventho' JAHMENE is my own personal choice to win,.
Enough of that.
Greetings to ALL here,
it's cold here tho' seasonal.
el,
don't tire yourself..
take it in stages.
Surely your assistance with the trip of your cousin/friend was much appreciated,{{{ Cuz Grace }}}

Wouldn't ya know ... it was a record-breaker for high temp in my part of Indiana, USA. Short sleeves were comfortably worn with maximum 72F in the afternoon. But tomorrow is a slow side to seasonal temps again after some showers overnight.

<quoted text>If you would settle for a friend telling you.....I can tell you
lots about those war years.

I can tell you of a two year old toddler hiding under the oak
dining table when the air-raid sirens sounded, warning of
enemy aircraft approaching.

I can tell you of my uncle, home on leave from his naval duties
on the convoys transporting war supplies to Russia, taking me
to see the Italian Prisoners of War who were working locally,
and my giving them bits of my chocolate he had brought home,
through the fence.

Of my new baby brother born in a grand hotel in Blackpool where
my mother was evacuated for safety purposes.

Taking for granted being woken in the middle of the night, being
put into my 'Mickey Mouse' gas mask, carried outside and hurriedly
placed in the underground (Anderson) shelter.(All good fun!)

Fortunately spared the knowledge that there was a war going on around me.
I can't begin to imagine. I also can't fathom how someone can live though that or a soldier in a war zone and then go home to 'normal' whatever normal was.

I only recall being told of my two uncles, one in the Airforce the other in the Army. The pilot was treated like royalty while his brother the army soldier was emancipated and ragged. They actually happened to cross paths in India and did not even recognize one another.

Thank you for sharing.

Good Tuesday morning {{{Cuz Luke}}}...
We really enjoyed the Royal Command Variety Show....some good
acts on, including Rod Stewart, a wonderful singer along the lines of Whitney Houston, and also representing America was Neil Diamond, his first Royal Variety appearance amazingly, he addressed a message to the Queen, telling her he hoped she has many more years on the throne and that 'we love you in America'...that was nice. You are right, Prince Harry will be demoted to 4th in line once the baby is born, no matter whether
a boy or a child (as they say in Ireland...thanks Grace) he/she will be thrid in line to the throne.
They are now wondering what the baby will be named if it is a girl,
Elizabeth being one guess, Diana..another favourite choice, however
as Will and Kate live on Anglesey (Ynys Mon) it is thought that she should have a Welsh name, there is a little island close by where they live which is named after a saint, I believe off the top of my head it is called Llandwyn, pronounced THLAN-DOO-IN
it is the island of lovers. It's a beautiful place, hauntingly so.
Pity that Kate is suffering with morning sickness, it is actually a little bit worse than that, and can last all day for a few months, learnt this only this morning as the news on the tv is full of it!
Have a lovely day Cuz.

I hadn't known any other manner of living, so it was just the norm
to me, nobody told me there was a war on. lol Too young to understand. It was all a game. I do remember my grandma refusing to leave her bed and go into the shelter one night, and saying 'if I am going to be killed, I will die in my own bed'....I think I remember that, or maybe it was hearsay.
I was shielded from everything. I do remember like it was yesterday, a neighbour approaching my Nan as we were going round to the shop, and commiserating with her on the fact that two of her sons were missing in action. My Nan thanked her quietly and said 'not in front of the child'..but kids hear all. Thankfully my two uncles returned home. Glad to hear yours did also.
Always humour in any situation....Peter's dad was a keen gardener, one night a bomb hit his greenhouse shattering it...his reaction..he immediately joined up, joined the Marines. He was a father of two at the time and far as I know, excempt from call-up.

You must be exhausted! Come and sit down and share this Mocha cake (how did you know, lol) with me, can you taste the added
ingredient I put a tot of Kahlua in there for that unique flavour!
Always fantastic to see you hear dear CC. Hey, ROCK ON!

Being a rocker you would have loved Rod at the Royal Variety
show last night, he looked and sounded fantastic, sang
a very nice version of When You Wish Upon A Star......

Hi Denny...now don't go forgetting the Kitchen when you bag
those Pheasants.....I will have the pot ready.
This sounds choice, but one time I noticed the car in front had glanced off a Pheasant and killed it. I got out (country road) and put it in a bag in the boot.
Hung it for four days.
Cooked it...for the cats would you believe.
I confess I tasted a tiny piece and it was good. Never had
it since.
They are running around all over the place near hear...and we
avoid them like the plague so as not to harm them!
