LoriP

G'd morning Babblers!
3:44 am
lilliann

hi lori
3:46 am
sprite

back. hi Lori.
3:52 am
sprite

every time my mother is here to pick up one of the kids, the kids hug us as we are used to do, and she starts crooning: "Ohhhhh are you sure you can come? Aren't you afraid you will get homesick?"
Today I told her off. Feels good :)
3:53 am
lilliann

are they going for the weekend?
3:54 am
sprite

yes, she picks th4 up on saturday morning and we collect them at her place sunday evening.
3:55 am
lilliann

is that every weekend?
3:56 am
sprite

no, just once in a while.
3:56 am
lilliann

if they were homesick, they wouldn't want to go
3:57 am
LoriP

That corner p certainly crankks out the 8's.
3:58 am
sprite

they are never homesick, not in a weekend anyway. They enjoy going. It is just that my mother always mocks them about the hugging.
3:58 am
sprite

that corner P keeps bugging me with potato and potato he4.
3:58 am
lilliann

i take it she'isn't much of a hugger then sprite
4:00 am
sprite

she likes it when the kids hug her, but ridicules them when they hug us. As if hugging your parents is only ok when you are 4 yo.
4:00 am
lilliann

i still like a hug from my mam and dad, especially as we don't get to see eachother much
4:01 am
lilliann

i love a cuddle with the bairn aswell, i've always been a huggy person, but my hubby isn't
4:01 am
LoriP

hah! Finished the corner p. They tried to sneak a pt word in there. ***ignoring the other p***
4:02 am
sprite

we are a very hugging family, my hubby, me and the kids. Even our son of 12 yo still wants his share of hugs. And I wouldn't want it any other way.
It is my mother's dislike of me that is causing her remarks. I am glad I told her to stop it today in a way that my kids didn't feel bad about.
4:03 am
sprite

what is bairn, lill? Your kids? "Feels" like a great word.
4:03 am
lilliann

yes, it means children
4:04 am
sprite

does it have a singular as well?
4:04 am
lilliann

i just have 1 with and hubby and he has 3 others, all grown up now
4:04 am
lilliann

bairn is the singular
4:05 am
lilliann

fireworks at last!!
4:05 am
sprite

ok, then what is the plural? Or does it stay the same?
4:05 am
sprite

wtg lill! Congrats.

Good morning everyone.

G'd morning elder! How was your excursion yesterday?
4:40 am
elder

Hello LoriP. It went well. I managed to walk round one shop and purchased a few items for Christmas, before I had to rest. Although painful it felt good to be doing normal stuff.
4:43 am
LoriP

Good for you elder! A bit at a time. Musta' felt good to get out. :)
4:45 am
elder

Lorip, yes and either today or tomorrow will test out car driving and then plan return to work. It should be ok as I can now sit without being in pain.
4:46 am
elder

and my job consists mostly of sitting down.
4:47 am
LoriP

All things in their time elder. Don't push it.
4:49 am
elder

I know but I have been off so long, many months and usually after being way for so long, you have a gradual plan return to work.

Hello Chick.

G'd morning hodag!
4:51 am
elder

Chick, not long arrived, it looks ok ish.
4:51 am
chickieo8

hey lori,hows tricks?
4:52 am
elder

Chick, may I ask why you changed your name.
4:52 am
chickieo8

that is what I was thinking.........:)
4:52 am
LoriP

I is good thanks. :D
4:54 am
chickieo8

sure elder,not many people new what a Hodag was and since I have a small chicken farm I changed it to this.:)
4:55 am
chickieo8

I am glad you is good Lori me also................:>)
4:55 am
elder

Oh, :)
4:56 am
chickieo8

Isell fresh farm eggs and that pays for thier food and gives me my play money plus thier fun....:>)
4:57 am
elder

Sounds good Chick, all that fresh produce and pennies.
5:01 am
chickieo8

I have about 1/2 a doz. regular buyers and I sell them just ubder the store price. Mine are bigger and better and I am never with out eggs for myself. My two youngest grandkids love to come out and feed and collect the eggs for grandma. It is much fun....:>)
5:01 am
chickieo8

oops bad typing.:(
5:03 am
elder

I remember, as a child feeding the chickens at my Grandparents house.two pain worries 1, not to let them escape from their huge free runs and 2, not let them peck my toes. Happy carefree memories.
5:03 am
LoriP

I miss fresh eggs, and REAL milk.
5:04 am
elder

You could probably sell them for a little more as they are free range.
5:04 am
elder

should have read 'main' not pain
5:05 am
LoriP

Chickens were evil, as I recall from my childhood. Many scratches....
5:06 am
elder

LoriP. lol
5:06 am
elder

LoriP, did you tease them ?. :)
5:07 am
LoriP

Nope, they were just born evil. Every single one of 'em.
5:07 am
LoriP

I'd take the cows, and the shovelling, and the milking over evil chickens, any day.
5:08 am
elder

I thought cows were easier and pigs just perfect.
5:09 am
chickieo8

I don't let mine run free because they scratch up mt flower beds. I have a large fenced in area along and across the back of the barn for them with an entry way inside to an a unused stall for shelter. I have never been pecked as a matter of fact some of them hop up on my arm to say hello.:<)
5:09 am
LoriP

We never kept pigs, we traded beef for pork with the neighbors. At least cows and pigs aren't evil.
5:11 am
elder

They are good for eating bugs and other nasties, but however kind I was to them they never jumped on my arms , thank god.
5:13 am
elder

I and cousins used to name the animals, a bad mistake when they went to live somewhere else. ( slaughter ).
5:14 am
chickieo8

ohhhhhhh,you don't know what your missing!! The hard part is doing them as they get loder to have room for the new chicks...:>( Some of mine have names........:>)
5:14 am
chickieo8

missed a word there!
5:14 am
LoriP

Slaughter time had the potential for maximum scratches. Guess whose job catching them was?
5:15 am
elder

Chick, a bit easier, when you know you have provided an excellent standard of living and care for them.
5:15 am
chickieo8

I catch mind with a large fishing net works great
5:15 am
elder

LoriP lol, so unlucky.
5:16 am
elder

They probably made LoriP, catch with hands as she had been naughty that day.
5:17 am
chickieo8

I bet your right.......:)
5:18 am
LoriP

: p
5:18 am
elder

*giggles*
5:20 am
chickieo8

if one gets out my yorkie silkey(A bby) will catch it and hold it to the ground by the neck and not hurt it until I can get there to put it back in the pen.
5:21 am

7:03 am

8:15 am
72 Temple Owl

i am trying to do this grid backwards in case the site acts up...there are so many t words
8:15 am
Scrabbler

Aw, why, Feather? Because you need to be cloned to multitask as wife, mother and teacher?
8:15 am
Scrabbler

Hi MG--TY for the clue
8:15 am
featherbee

no, because i need to be cloned as a babysitter, playmate and maid. it's the maid part that's getting to me.
8:16 am
72 Temple Owl

close, scrabs
8:16 am

yugh feather.

Does Doug help much? Or could you afford a housecleaner periodically?
8:16 am

Good plan TO - I've been working backwards and todays grid is really working with that approach
8:16 am
Scrabbler

Is your work guaranteed, nut?
8:17 am
featherbee

i don't want the tv to be on all morning. so we're playing with it off now, which is fine. HOWEVER, i would like to do laundry, clean the kitchen, pick up the house, vacuum. i can't do any of that because whenever i leave the room for 5 seconds, daniel is either being a pain or fighting over a toy with nick. if i'm in the room with them, it's fine. therefore, my house is a pigsty, but there's peace.
8:17 am

It's adorable. And if he's doing it when you walk into a room you have to pretend not to hear the giggling, and wander around saying, "Where'd Walter go?" and the like until he jups up and yells, "tada!"
8:22 am
Jacula

Hi Scrabbs. I've been here a while but I'm deep in the grid. How are the bunnies?
8:23 am
featherbee

and see, my other part of the problem is when i DO get a few minutes, i don't take advantage of them. right now daniel went into his room to play. i should be getting up and gathering laundry, but ack, here i sit, because my brain is too fried.
8:23 am
FMitch

Thanks Jacs, I can see them being my 'fish' words.
8:23 am

as i suspected...babble is the REAL suspect here
8:23 am
Scrabbler

Kids love hiding out and making forts--they believe they are invisible, then they say, "I'm over here!"
8:24 am
FMitch

It is one of the nicest grids we have had a in a long time, but slow and steady is the approach.
8:24 am

The bunnies are all sweet, Jacula! And they will get clean rooms today when I take a break from Babble.
8:24 am

Yup. He also has cardboard playhouse and he is absolutely convinced we can never guess that's where he is.

8:25 am

Be patient, nut--they are worth the wait.
8:25 am
72 Temple Owl

the problem with trying to avoid not all wrods showing in large grids is that it makes one go to list when on e doesn't really want to
8:26 am
Jacula

Scrabbs - I did my g/pigs yesterday. I'm a bit worried about the one - she looks like she's about to explode. It's either a phantom pregnancy or she's got a growth. I'd think she was just very fat but her nipples look weird.
8:26 am

No chance she was fertilized, Jac?
8:27 am
Jacula

No chance, Scrabbs.

10:54 am
jbp

10:54 am
jbp

also got 2 dogs this summer, who are proving to be a bit of a handful
10:54 am
flosey

back again - there's a huge gray owl in a tree outside the office - tried to get a pic of him but it's raining
10:54 am
kje

as7 - not proud of

jbp

apparently, beagles are stubborn --who knew? not me!
10:54 am
harpjane

10:55 am
harpjane

thanks
10:55 am
stidmama

I am sorry to hear about the health issues. Those stink. eek! TWO dogs? we lost one of ours this summer, surprisingly it almost seems more work with just the one, who now needs more companionship.
10:55 am
stidmama

hey flosey!
10:55 am
jean1953

I have a beagle jbp and u are so right very stubborn
10:55 am
rururocks

beagles are extremely stubborn..
10:55 am
jbp

but unless you have a treat for them, they're not very motivated...
10:55 am
harpjane

sounds like nice temperaments, and probably not too much shedding?
10:55 am
stidmama

I am in school full-time and am frequently babbling during lectures so as to maintain sanity when I am completely clueless...
10:55 am
flosey

just sitting up there, he was watching me trying to get his pic, has been there for about an hour
10:55 am
jbp

shedding is the cats' domain ;-)
10:56 am
stidmama

and ruru knows ALL about stubborn!!! *wicked grin*
10:56 am
harpjane

since i share my life with two long haired cats i am quite aware of that!
10:56 am
jbp

hee
10:56 am
stidmama

it's raining here too flosey, though when I woke up at 6 there was a bit of sun coming under the clouds
10:56 am
jbp

all this time, I had been feeling all superior to dog owners who had trouble training their dogs, because we always had retrievers of some kind or another.
10:56 am
rururocks

** look to total shock at Stid's comments !***
10:57 am
jbp

so this is my comeuppance,
10:57 am
rururocks

look of ... that is
10:57 am
stidmama

rofl....
10:57 am
kje

b/c of the comment.... or b/c it came from stid?
10:57 am
flosey

hmmm, not here stid, very wet and I was up - babbled a while but when my bridge p came online we played for a while
10:57 am
rururocks

both.. I expect them from you and now you are training stid too...damn
10:58 am
kje

no, stid deduced that observation all on her own... it is her new science outlook.... very observant
10:58 am
stidmama

there there, ruru, I am just ornery because I woke up at 6... was hoping to sleep in.
10:58 am
jbp

we've had a mild fall here, so I can't complain about the rain
11:00 am
rururocks

I will continue to work and the grid and refuse to have you de6/24 my efforts...

Hi folks! Had a major scary but good-outcome incident before dinner, Walter fubbled a heavy stoneware plate while helping set the table, but the swelling in his foot went down very quickly and the bruising isn't bad and he's himself again, so here I am instead of in the emergency room. How is everyone this evening?

Thanks Judi. He is. And setting teh table was all his idea, too. I'm very glad it all came out all right. These are some Thai stoneware plates I found at a second hand shopa nd they're heavy as lead, but he loves putting them on the table. I know what these feel like on a foot at speed. Dinner was, needless to say, delayed, and he did opt for the tylenol before bed But it looks like it'll be just fine.

Luckily, I think it won't even be purple enough for that by tomorrow. This boy is really resilient. Which probably explains why he survived his first week; everyone said they couln't give me a prognosis but as soon as he was getting better they started calling him a miracle baby. He bounces back incredibly well from these little mishaps. I did too.

It was. It fell edge first, and he cried like he rarely does, Then it started swelling like crazy... which went right down again with very little bruising and after 20 minutes he was chipper and walking normally, ate a big dinner, requested a Tylenol, and went to bed with no fuss or bother.
12:56 pm

if ruru comes back, tell him i finished... tried to wait for him, but ...

12:58 pm

12:58 pm

I had a VERY serious foot injury about ten years ago while we were illegal and thus uninsured, so it's a red flag issue for me.

12:59 pm
MonkeyGames

Yes, Walter is a tough little guy. He was even pretty sanguine after 24 hours when he brioke his leg two years ago. An hour after getting the walking cast it was like nothing had ever been wrong.
1:01 pm
MonkeyGames

My parents sure had to, Harp. I was always getting hit in th head. (Yes, explains a lot, I know...) Pushed headfirst into a marble bathtub when I was 4, fell down some stairs and still have a 5 inch scar under my hair when I was 4, etc. 7 concussions by 8 years old. Then not so many after that...
1:01 pm
harpjane

i always remind my parents that I am NOT the kid who had to go to the emergency room.....
1:01 pm
Judi

Geesh, Monkey. How did all of that happen?
1:01 pm
MonkeyGames

Some solid near misses too, like when that horse kicked a wall to splinters about a foot left of my chest when I was 12...
1:02 pm
Aloyisius

wonder they didn't lock you in a padded room, lol.. Monkey, you sure took some lumps and bumps
1:02 pm
harpjane

but then, in the 60's, when you broke an arm you called your regular doctor and made an appointment....
1:02 pm
MonkeyGames

Well, let's see. Concussion #1, another kid at preschool shoved me into the marble bathtub in the playground.
1:02 pm
Judi

Or, the doctor actually made a house call! Now those were the good old days.
1:03 pm
MonkeyGames

#2, playing unattended at the top of some stairs with a sharp rock garden at the bottom. #3, thrown from a horse into a tree.
1:03 pm
MonkeyGames

#4, some kids beat me up and when I ran away I tripped...
1:03 pm
MonkeyGames

#5, golf ball in the eye at close range.
1:04 pm
MonkeyGames

#6, horse bolted under a low tree branch... and #7, running kids knocked me sideways into the corner of a stone building.
1:04 pm
MonkeyGames

Then I seemed to start spending a lot of time indoors reading...
1:05 pm
Judi

Godalmighty! LOL! Way more than your fair share of skull splitting. Suspect your parents made you wear a football helmet everywhere you went after all of that.
1:06 pm

1:08 pm
MonkeyGames

See? That's how I feel. It was very liberating when I was 17 and realized she was actually ill and I shouldn't take anything personally. Then we had a civil relationship until I got pregnant at 36, at which point I went out of my way to forge a better one. We have a good relationship now but do NOT talk about anything from, say, my childhood
1:08 pm
Aloyisius

well, I whittled it down a bit.. bbs
1:09 pm
MonkeyGames

For the record she'a actually a really great lady. Those were not her bast times.
1:10 pm
MonkeyGames

She's being a fantastic grandmother. Wish she lived closer. Not necessarily like in this city, but on this continent would be nice.
1:13 pm
MonkeyGames

And my last word on all this, now you know why after 15 I lived with my grandparents and why I consider them my REAL parents, as it were. Dad has always been there for me but is on the road a lot and has always been inmore the "favorite uncle" role.
1:14 pm

Curios to know why you are dsicussing concussions? I had an opthomologist once ask me if i've had any and oh, yes. Quite a few infact.
1:14 pm

He could tell because I had a lot of pigmentation floating in my eyes.
1:14 pm
redturtlehead

1:15 pm

Just that my son dropped a plate on his foot tonight (he's OK) which brought up childhood injuries, among my many were 7 concussions. And on that note, husband has come down with the new Cohen Brothers film and off I go.

I missed it too! I have been here off and on all day. I just got here from a short break. Too bad I missed it
4:44 pm
redturtlehead

yes, but in my defense I did not attack anyone. I do think people have to realize there is going to be some political conversation for some time.
4:44 pm

Yes, well, it was a brief flareup of excitement.
4:44 pm

Politics can be controversial, but it should never get in the way of FUN! All I can say is we need a CHANGE!

I don't assume that people who voted for a different Presidential choice that I had did so out of malice or anger or anything; there were plenty of valid reasons to vote darn near any way

Contrary to popular belief, the Vice President needn't crash on a White House couch every night. He's got a home of his own, and it's a nice one.
The house, a white, brick-walled, Victorian-style home with 9,150 square feet of floor space, is located on the corner of 34th Street and Massachusetts Avenue in Washington, D.C. It's on the grounds of the United States Naval Observatory and was originally built for the superintendent of the observatory in 1839.

The house became the official residence of the Chief of the Naval Observatory in 1928 (for this reason, it's still referred to as the "Admiral's House"). In 1974, Congress designated the house the official temporary residence for vice presidents. Before the decree, the vice president lived in temporary houses and hotels.

In 1977, Vice President Walter Mondale, under President Jimmy Carter, was the first to occupy the house.

and greyhounds have such short coats that, with regular bathing, they shouldn't be a big problem for the allergies

5:44 pm
evanonut

5:44 pm
stidmama

If they go for ANY dog that truly needs a home, rather than direct from a breeder, it would raise a lot of awareness.
5:44 pm
Judi

I listen to all things considered.
5:44 pm
redturtlehead

Or someo ther rescue.
5:44 pm
lynxxx

I love my Stew but I probably wouldn't recommend him for kids
5:44 pm
tygerbryght

I'm hoping that they'll read my letter, as that would help promote rescue, even if the Obamas don't
5:44 pm
Judi

5:44 pm
stidmama

still need help on the last PR 7/8 combo please
5:44 pm
redturtlehead

I think they will do that. I am sure they have had a variety of offers from shelters of poodles and schnauzers.
5:44 pm
stidmama

greyhounds need a LOT of running room though... and time with their people.
5:44 pm
tygerbryght

greyhounds tend to be couch potatoes - for that matter, so do nearly all of the gazehound breeds
5:44 pm
lexleeanne

yes she does...over and over and over
5:44 pm

and Bichons.

5:45 pm
tygerbryght

stiddie, time with the peeps shouldn't be a problem, and the dog could go to Camp David periodically to run
5:45 pm
redturtlehead

the only issue with the sight hounds is that when they see something, and are "loose" they are gone after it!!!! LOL
5:45 pm
stidmama

yes judi! those were the ones I needed! down to 24!
5:45 pm
tygerbryght

5:46 pm
tygerbryght

5:46 pm

you don't get that kind of help adopting a dog from a shelter
5:47 pm
Judi

What other dogs are hypoalergenic, besides labradoodles? Aren't some of the toy breeds suitable, like pomeranians of some such?
5:47 pm
stidmama

5:48 pm
stidmama

mutts are often good for allergies... but sometimes you don't know until the dog is home.
5:48 pm
Judi

Ah, there you go. Schnauzers can be rather miserable in my exeprience.
5:48 pm
lexleeanne

thanks for the na
5:48 pm
tygerbryght

I don't think Obama will go for a mutt, because of the allergy issue
5:48 pm
