grannyrose

we were about 10kms from home last saturday, wh4 the storm hit. hubby wanted to pull over, under a tree. i said NO WAY!!! a) trees fall down in this sort of wind, and b) mother mac is home alone. was very scary, sounded like someone was hitting the roof of the car with a bat.
1:38 am
jillibus

one m5 is a pl
1:38 am
lshult

2:50 am

Morning ruby
2:50 am
FMitch

Nice easy grid today, short but sweet.
2:51 am
rubyfoo

hello fm; I guess everybody else is either 10 hrs ahead or 9 hrs behind!
2:51 am
rubyfoo

yesterday was amazing. I got better than half but it was interesting, juicy and very medical
2:52 am
FMitch

yes it was an interesting and big one, nice size for a Sunday.
2:52 am
Haz1558

Good morning/evening all. You're right, ruby, a hypochondriac would have had a field day with yesterday's ailments.
2:52 am
FMitch

Good morning Haz
Ceiling all done?
2:53 am
rubyfoo

are those your crocus, haz?
2:53 am
Haz1558

Yes, the ceiling is done and we're ready for the papering. But first my little fix of babble! I'm glad it's a small grid, less excuse to slacken off.
2:53 am
FMitch

for a small one it is easy
2:54 am
FMitch

ruby the crocus are the same as the ones just coming out in the garden but I found the image on google.
2:54 am
Haz1558

I even found the 6 and 7 myself. The sort of exercise marathon athletes don't indulge in.
2:55 am
rubyfoo

I don't have crocus, but everything else is coming up about an inch a day, even tho it's still very cold
2:57 am
FMitch

I love going into the garden every morning and seeing what is sprouting up
2:57 am
rubyfoo

me, too, but now I have to see what groceries have sprouted up (husband is back) see you later
2:58 am
FMitch

Bye for now then ruby

3:04 am
Sally-catlover

Good morning anyone. Typical, I sit down and the first word I see is a phanton: lunch!
3:05 am
Haz1558

Good morning, Sally.
3:06 am
Sally-catlover

Hi Haz. What a lovely small grid today. I've even blacked in a square already (the J).
3:06 am
Haz1558

It's a very obliging grid, for a small one.
3:15 am
Haz1558

Well, I must be off - have a nice day, Sally.
3:15 am
Haz1558

*gone*
3:15 am
Sally-catlover

And you Haz. Can't believe how fast this is going so far.
3:17 am
hydra

Hi Sally and Haz. I've only got 6 unblacked squares left and I only started ten mins ago. Yes, it's swift and speedy today, unlike yesterday's which I didn't finish.
3:18 am
Sally-catlover

It's lovely for a change, isn't it hydra. My trouble with the very big ones isn't necessarily the difficulty but the time! If you are in front of a computer all day (maybe because of disability) then that's great, but I should do other things as well.
3:19 am
hydra

Same with me, Sally. I had to finish a manuscript appraisal yesterday as I shall be out for most of today. My next job is 800 words on the history of the dirty joke!!!
3:19 am
hydra

I'm finding the r words difficult to find.
3:19 am
Sally-catlover

Should be fun reading hydra, but hard to be objective.
3:20 am
Sally-catlover

I have the top right one, and 3 from the other R so far.
3:20 am
hydra

It's the research that's hard. I bought a book on Amazon to help me, but it's far too academic.
3:21 am
hydra

I have three from the bottom r too. Still seeking thw last elusive two.
3:23 am
Sally-catlover

well what do you know. I tried a silly compound word from that bottom R and it worked, and got a plural too so the Rs are done.
3:23 am
hydra

8 words left, and can I find them? Can I hell!!
3:23 am
Sally-catlover

15 here :-)
3:24 am
hydra

I bet my 8 are part of your 15!
3:24 am
Sally-catlover

12 now :-)
3:24 am
hydra

... and 7 :-)
3:25 am
rubyfoo

hi again, a few more minutes to devote! hello sally
3:26 am
Sally-catlover

hi ruby. 11 left now hydra.
3:26 am
hydra

Morning ruby
3:26 am
hydra

6 here, Sally!
3:26 am
rubyfoo

hi hydra
3:26 am
hydra

5 !
3:27 am
Sally-catlover

OK, I concede. Couldn't possibly even type them in time.
3:27 am
hydra

Bet you get there before me, Sally. My brain has seized up.
3:30 am
rubyfoo

help on the 6 or the 7 would be very welcome; I am hopeless in this grid!
3:30 am
hydra

I don't have either of those, ruby! How about you, Sally?
3:31 am
Sally-catlover

6 left now hydra :-) I have the 6 and 7
3:31 am
Sally-catlover

Do you want the stats or a clue ruby?
3:31 am
hydra

Lucky you! I don't even know what they begin with!
3:31 am
rubyfoo

clues, pls
3:31 am
rubyfoo

or the stats if you think I am capable lol
3:32 am
hydra

Don't think there are any stats. I looked earlier.
3:32 am
Sally-catlover

ru 6/21 and plural. If you go out jogging, you go for a ru*. If you go for a little one it might be this!
3:34 am
rubyfoo

that's a riot!
3:34 am
rubyfoo

thank you
3:34 am
rubyfoo

great clues
3:34 am
Sally-catlover

I just tried that silly word by chance and it worked.
3:34 am
hydra

Thanks so much, Sally. I hadn't spotted those at all. Wonderful clues!
3:35 am
hydra

I just need an s, an h and a t now.
3:35 am
rubyfoo

now I can do my paperwork with an eased mind! lol
3:35 am
rubyfoo

at least I have a little more than half see you later
3:35 am
Sally-catlover

I need two Ts and an N.
3:35 am
Sally-catlover

Oh wow. I have a bird feeder stuck on my window and there is a nut hatch on it.
3:36 am
rubyfoo

I have no t's or n's.... :( useless
3:36 am
hydra

Brilliant! I've never seen one
3:36 am
Sally-catlover

So close!
3:36 am
rubyfoo

oooh
3:36 am
hydra

Can I help with the n, Sally? I have them all.
3:36 am
Sally-catlover

We have lots here but I don't usually see them that close.
3:36 am
Sally-catlover

favourite bird, I think they look like a baby Concorde.
3:37 am
hydra

What are of Shropshire are you in? I have friends in Shawbury.
3:37 am
Sally-catlover

Just got it hydra, tried a plural.
3:37 am
rubyfoo

birdfeeders directly in front of windows are, for me, the best ways to bird watch. You can really see them, but they can't see you. We don't have nuthatches here, just millions of "verdier" which look like green finches (if there is such a fthing).
3:37 am
hydra

One of the n words is something you might put in your birdfeeder!
3:39 am
hydra

Just looked it up, ruby and it is indeed a greenfinch.
3:39 am
Sally-catlover

Have all the Ns now hydra! Yes, those and sunflower seeds are in the feeder. We also have masses of bullfinches, which some quite keen birdwatchers have never seen. Long-tailed tits also which go in gangs.
3:40 am
Sally-catlover

I'm near Ludlow, hydra. About 5 miles away, very rural. We have about an acre of garden which we try to manage for the wildlife, which means leaving old wood around to encourage insects which in turn brings in the birds.
3:40 am
Sally-catlover

Lazy gardening :-)
3:41 am
hydra

I've never seen a bullfinch, either. We have a resident chaffinch, all species of tits, jays, sparrows, green and goldfinches, a sparrowhawk (unfortunately), green and greater spotted woodpeckers... We live near Heathrow and the large garden backs onto farm fields.
3:41 am
hydra

I need one h. I have the pagan god (or short name for wading bird), and the singular and plural that sound like throwing something. What am I missing?
3:42 am
jan

Sounds like an eagle with an h, speaking of birds
3:43 am
Sally-catlover

Smug. Fireworks. Change the last consonant for another he4
3:43 am
hydra

I thought of it as a fish-eating grey bird.
3:43 am
hydra

Well done, Sally! I said you'd get there first!
3:44 am
jan

It gets clued as sea eagle in crosswords a lot
3:44 am
Sally-catlover

I distracted you with bird talk :-)
3:44 am
hydra

Just 2 left to find. An s and a t.
3:45 am
hydra

I enjoyed the bird talk, Sally.
3:45 am
jan

I am missing the same two, hydra
3:45 am
hydra

Yes, jan, so it does!
3:45 am
Sally-catlover

Do you want the stats for the S and T?
3:45 am
hydra

Yes please, Sally!
3:46 am
jan

I have the one that sounds like a poker giveaway, the song and song player and the about-face for t's. What am I missing?
3:46 am
hydra

Just got the t. Only the s to find now
3:47 am
Sally-catlover

SA 4/4, 4/4. si 5/12. 4/4, SL 4/5 x 3, ST 5/22. 4/5
3:47 am
Sally-catlover

There's another TU 4/5 jan
3:48 am
hydra

The first communication satellite (there was a pop record called after it), minus the black stuff spread on roads t4,4
3:49 am
hydra

I see it's the si 5,12 I need. Clue please, Sally?
3:49 am
jan

Thanks, now to track down that pesky si 5 and head back to bed...
3:49 am
hydra

We both need the same one, jan
3:50 am
Sally-catlover

French word, S followed by three vowels then consonant. Should be enough of a clue.
3:50 am
jan

It usually starts with mon, esp in Paris...
3:50 am
hydra

Oh! It's male!
3:50 am
Sally-catlover

That's the one hydra!
3:50 am
hydra

Fireworks!!! Thank you, Sally :-)
3:51 am
jan

Fireworks and now back to bed. Much thanks, sally and hydra
3:51 am
Sally-catlover

3:51 am

Must start wprk now. Byeeeeeee! Au revoir!

I needed a new direction in my life, and well, I picked that subject to get into. I am not per se going back to school, it's distance learning, internet and email....

I can't cut back on work, we both need to work full-time to pay bills and keep roof over head etc....

11 left here...I was hoping for a big fat grid this evening but it seems I'm unlucky today
3:16 pm
jmcnrick

:-( well you can do it listless to make it more a challenge
3:17 pm
Nancy Boy

s'what I'm attempting :) I'm home alone this evening, that's why. And the flat looks a bit dark and scary...
3:17 pm
jmcnrick

well if the door is locked you should be okay
3:17 pm
jmcnrick

where is your sweety?
3:19 pm
Nancy Boy

Just paying a visit to his parents, Jmc :) luckily! I got a letter this morning I don't think he'd like
3:19 pm
Nancy Boy

(hence I'm in a bit of a weird mood this evening, I'm a dampened-down nancy boy today)
3:20 pm
jmcnrick

should I inquire about the letter?
3:21 pm
Nancy Boy

Nothing too thrilling, Jmc ;) just a note from home. Bit cruel though. I'm getting to be a bit of a wimp about things like that; the handwriting on the front makes me feel all ill now!
3:22 pm
jmcnrick

i guessed that might be it
3:22 pm
jmcnrick

its hard when people you love are mean
3:22 pm
jmcnrick

you don't have to read them
3:23 pm
Nancy Boy

you're right...I shouldn't read them really. It's not like they're written to be nasty, I don't think, but there's a basic message of "give up leo and we'll take you back"...and the way they talk about him is very nasty. I should just throw them away.
3:25 pm
Nancy Boy

oh well. Fireworks, anyway! No use getting upset about it, I s'pose :)
3:25 pm
starbuck

3:26 pm

7:20 pm
torgone

7 ..
7:20 pm
Nef

No, Kris, don't feel that way. Sometimes we need lists and sometimes we don't. I think it depends on our tolerance level
7:20 pm
KrisE

I normally use the list - after a point, I can't see the normal words
7:20 pm
KrisE

let alone the monkey words
7:20 pm

7:30 pm
KrisE

I still miss Homicide Life on the Streets
7:30 pm
Scrabbler

I agree, Nef. But my friend and I have our weekly discussion + laughs about 24.
7:31 pm
redturtlehead

nothing wrong with laughing!
7:31 pm
Scrabbler

I LOVED that show, Kris---Andre Braugher, etc. Great show!
7:31 pm
KrisE

Good for you, Scrabbler!
7:31 pm
KrisE

Nothing as good as HLOTs since then. sigh.
7:32 pm
KrisE

House is reading the Bible? and Sermons?
7:32 pm
Scrabbler

I still think about that show on Friday nights--expecting it to be on.
7:32 pm
KrisE

As well it should be!
7:32 pm
Scrabbler

ew. throwup
7:33 pm
redturtlehead

renut
7:34 pm
redturtlehead

yes well, sidles off to the PB
7:34 pm
Scrabbler

And that's why we are fascinated by him, at least for me. And he is smart. And he says things to patients that docs wish they could say but wouldn't say.
7:34 pm
Nef

I actually have worked with a doctor very similar to House except that he wasn't addicted. WHY do they have to make House and Nurse Jacky as addicted characters?
7:34 pm
Scrabbler

Tha's not a word, Red.
7:35 pm
redturtlehead

Yes, I had a whiney patient today say "I need Dr House" and all I could think was , "yeah so he can tell you to STFU...."
7:35 pm
Scrabbler

To show their flaws.
7:35 pm
Scrabbler

Haha, Red.
7:35 pm
KrisE

I heard there was champaign earlier in the PB - maybe Red just needs a drink...
7:35 pm
redturtlehead

cookies?
7:36 pm
Scrabbler

Why do stupid people not know when to shut up?
7:36 pm
KrisE

I didn't hear of cookies, but I'm sure there are some in there.
7:36 pm
Nef

I think they both have enough flaws that they don't need to be addicts. But what do I know?
7:36 pm
redturtlehead

Are there any Rh words?
7:36 pm
KrisE

As my hubby says, many people need a big can of Shut Up
7:36 pm
KrisE

no rh, red. All ru
7:36 pm
redturtlehead

Yes I prefer the can of whoop ass
7:36 pm
redturtlehead

thanks Kris..
7:37 pm
KrisE

Ted also wishes for a Mute button for people
7:37 pm
Scrabbler

I love that, Kris. I would love to mute people.
7:38 pm
Nef

Now THAT would be a good invention, Kris! :-D
7:38 pm
KrisE

Wouldn't it be nice?
7:38 pm
Scrabbler

Whoa, Chase is SO hot!
7:38 pm
KrisE

Sometimes in meetings, people start to sound like Charlie Brown's teacher.
7:39 pm
KrisE

Chase got a haircut!
7:39 pm
Scrabbler

Wah, wah, wah, wah wah wah...
7:39 pm
Nef

Red, what do you need?
7:40 pm
redturtlehead

me, I need nothing.
7:40 pm
redturtlehead

Other than a raise.
7:40 pm
Nef

I feel like that might be what *I* sound like when I go through our patients' 8 page health history forms. On the New OB clinic days, I can be doing that for nearly 8 hours straight!
7:41 pm
KrisE

Love your icon, red
7:41 pm
redturtlehead

TY Kris, I thought it was funny.
7:41 pm
KrisE

sounds mind-numbing, Nef. But since you're asking about themselves, people are interested

When a bride walked down the ai5.10, men do4.11(ed) their caps to her and her heart beat was fast as a dr4/7. She was st4/5ned at how fa4.7, fa4.7 handed her the man in the hitherto un5.12 apartment on a plate. She was no sashaying sl4.5, and wanted no sl4.5 on her reputation, but he was on the st5/22 of the ship she was on in WW2 as a wr4.8 and, wh4.9 she saw him her hormones went nu4.5, there was a violin tu4.5 in her head, she went on a diet that included no fa4.7 in order to fit into her sa4.4(n) wedding dress, and all because he tu4.5(ed) her head. They would be married on the is4.4 of Wight, she decided, in double quick time (or a ji4.15), nothing less would sa4.4 her appetite for marrying her sexy French monsi5.12. As a ru4/5, she hated the cartwheels sl4.5ing over ru4.5 in the rough cart track up to the church. However, the ru4.5(s) had foretold that the si4.4 would not be in tu4.5 with her easy to get to whilst wearing a tu(l)4.5 gown wish. As she finally tried to get to her destination in a number of Australian vehicle, ut4.5,and observed a cow with ru7/32 of that prickly Scottish emblem plant thi4.10 juice leaking from its ru5.14, or first stomach, she suddenly wished artichokes weren’t on the wedding breakfast me4.6 and that Hawaiian garlands, le4.4, were being put around the guests’ necks on arrival.
