4:55 am
sprite

oh that is good news, Ro4.
4:56 am
grannyrose

well, if you wake up in the AM. and it takes you 20mins to mobilise, i think that's a pretty good indicator that 10 hours is to long.
4:56 am
sprite

way too long
4:56 am
lynxxx

That sounds better! 10 hours is too long for anyone. And what happened to your hail damaged car Rose? and has grandchild no 2 appeared yet?

5:01 am
grannyrose

5:01 am
lynxxx

I can 't think of babies in kilos. I don't think anyone can here
5:02 am
sprite

it is all we know and use, lyn, here.
5:03 am
sprite

but for babies, we usually say how many pounds.
5:03 am
dizgrannie

congrats to grannyrose...XXXX, our youndest g/son was 10lb 110zs and we thought he was a monster...LOL
5:03 am
grannyrose

* grin * but it still makes my eyes water to think what lucinda must have gone through.
5:03 am
Haz1558

We're kind of a mxture here - children are taught in metric, adults think in imperial.
5:03 am
dizgrannie

youndest = younGest
5:03 am
sprite

(and a pound is half a kg... not your pound)
5:03 am
grannyrose

diz, i'm sp proud of Lu, what an amazing young woman she is!!!
5:04 am
sandyloo

or 1 kg = 2.2 lbs
5:05 am
lynxxx

Sprite - so you say pound for half a kilo - in everyday use?
5:05 am
sprite

yes, 1 kilo = 2 pond
5:05 am
dizgrannie

granny, dtr had a 9lb 10ozs then 10lb 11ozs...both au natural...(legs crossed here)
5:06 am
grannyrose

LOL, diz, know what you mean!!!!
5:06 am
sprite

*remembers... ouch*
5:07 am
grannyrose

i managed to squeeze out a nine pounder, but that was my limit!!!!!
5:08 am
sprite

lyn, we also use the word 'ons' which is 100 gram, 1/10 of a kilogram. One pond = 500 gram. But pond and ons aren't official measures.
5:09 am
Haz1558

What joy. THe middle of May and we're having hailstones.

5:11 am
Haz1558

It's mad, isn't it? Oh well, summer has got to come eventually.
5:11 am
sprite

winter was late too, and was intensely wintery. Let's hope summer will be very summery and long.
5:11 am
sprite

no lyn, we never did.
5:12 am
Haz1558

We'll live in hope, should we die in despair.
5:12 am
sprite

yeah I prefer hope. If I have to be proven wrong, let it be about being optimistical and not pessimistical.
5:13 am
Haz1558

Just optimistic or pessimistic, no need for al at the end.
5:14 am
sprite

oh ok, thank you!
5:14 am
Haz1558

No problem!

See you later, lyn.
5:15 am
sprite

do you know this one:
"The optimist believes we are living in the best world possible. The pessimist fears that is true."
5:16 am
Haz1558

Very clever!
5:17 am
dizgrannie

Now, mind you, I have made most of these friends since I moved back to GA. I was awed....the love (energy) was so wonderful....we closed the place. I know there are some wonderful people in the world and I am so blessed. And I count you all as "friends".
4:12 pm

5:55 pm
lynxxx

5:55 pm
Riverdance

no wireless
5:57 pm
aslindy

I personally don't know much about dsl... do you have a cable that comes from the wall to your computer?
5:57 pm
Riverdance

it comes through the phone line into a DSLmodem box
5:58 pm
Riverdance

I would have to get another box at $49 month to hook to other computer - that wont happen
5:58 pm
aslindy

hmmm... is there only one space on the modem box to connect to?
5:59 pm
lynxxx

You can get a wireless modem for DSL
6:00 pm
Riverdance

yes and our cable company is even more for theirs
6:00 pm
Riverdance

I will have to check into that lynxxx - dont know if that is available in this area - I live in the woods

6:09 pm
Lady Biotch

6:10 pm
featherbee

6:10 pm
redturtlehead

i dont have the li** feather, but you could clue the nine.
6:10 pm
Lady Biotch

were you ladies around, I think it was Wednesday? there were these two gals one had like 80 left and one was given the other clues for every word she was missiing?
6:10 pm
Lady Biotch

soooooooooooo annoying I finally logged out of babble
6:11 pm
redturtlehead

glad to have missed that. I could probably name the ladies needing the 80.
6:11 pm
featherbee

yeah, saw that
6:11 pm
featherbee

scrolling to find the 9, lol. big li4.
6:11 pm
lynxxx

6:12 pm
redturtlehead

ooooh thanks!
6:12 pm
Lady Biotch

ok, so it wasn't just me....
6:13 pm
redturtlehead

i have seen it happen, can never figure why the cluers so kindly keep cluing, and people like that usually ask for spelled out clues.
6:13 pm
featherbee

(((((nutty)))))) hiya!
6:13 pm
redturtlehead

nut!!!
6:13 pm
evanonut

whaddup herbinator???
6:13 pm
redturtlehead

welki hi!
6:13 pm
Lady Biotch

I wish there was a way to chat with one specific person at a time I would've made comments to the folks who are here all the time
6:13 pm
featherbee

i'll do a modified version of it for say a 12 year old who is obviously trying, and being polite, yet struggling.
6:13 pm
evanonut

redziiiiii! how you is cookie?
6:13 pm
featherbee

herbinator, lol. the antithesis to weed.
6:13 pm
Riverdance

Ok home made pizza in oven - looking back on chat
6:13 pm
welki

6:14 pm
lynxxx

hi Nut
6:14 pm
redturtlehead

redz is good, hows nut?
6:14 pm
Riverdance

Lady - we have comcast cable up here but its alot of $$$$
6:14 pm
welki

i was tempted, too, lady ... but they seemed to be having a good time of it, so i hid the chat
6:14 pm
evanonut

weed is so silly, you're no weed! weeds are everywhere and unwanted...that is the opposite of you. original and appreciated!
6:14 pm
evanonut

hey lynxxxxy
6:15 pm
featherbee

awww! how sweet! yes, but weeds are lovely too.
6:15 pm
evanonut

nutter is good
6:15 pm
featherbee

gotta go, daniel's ready to settle down and go to bed now. brb.
6:15 pm
evanonut

until they choke everything else
6:15 pm
Riverdance

red - I thought the rule was NO spelled out clues - we do not give out 3rd letters no matter what etc...
6:15 pm
lynxxx

bye Feather
6:15 pm
evanonut

there are no rules
6:16 pm
evanonut

there's no rules link, the only rule is not to be crass or mean
6:16 pm
redturtlehead

it is the "rule" but you would be surprised, when people use clues like Snake letter, chair letter...
6:16 pm
lynxxx

or obscene
6:16 pm
Riverdance

unwritten rule
6:16 pm
redturtlehead

nd typically that means, not typing words into chat a lot or whatever.
6:16 pm
evanonut

yeah...obscene
6:16 pm
Riverdance

chair letter???
6:17 pm
evanonut

obviously O...bean bag chair
6:17 pm
evanonut

;-)
6:17 pm
lynxxx

h. I hate those type of clues
6:17 pm
Riverdance

I ask for clues when I am at the end of my wits - its not fun if you dont try
6:17 pm
lynxxx

? I thought chair letter was h
6:18 pm
redturtlehead

some days its nice to see those clues, but I would never ask for it.
6:18 pm
Riverdance

there are some folks that need help and I dont mind offering obvious clues
6:18 pm
evanonut

i feel as long as a word isn't typed in the chog, all is fair
6:18 pm
Riverdance

see lynxxx - no rules - we dont even know what is what - lol
6:18 pm
redturtlehead

but there are a few people that come on here and ask for clue after clue, and I never see why they bother playing.
6:19 pm
evanonut

its not fair to force others to work the puzzle they way you want to, and if the clue-ing that is going on at the time isn't suiting you, that's why you can hide the chog
6:19 pm
Riverdance

sometimes I think they are new and dont really know what to do
6:19 pm
lynxxx

The worst clues are the ' sixth letter' '2nd vowel' - if you are going to do that really you should just type the word in
6:20 pm
Riverdance

absolutely evan - hide it if you dont want to know
6:20 pm
Barb's Horses

hurshy

6:50 pm
Barb's Horses

are you going somewhere special hurshy?
6:50 pm
Scrabbler

Are you going away? I get terrible separation anxiety when I leave my bunnies.
6:51 pm
hurshy

my uncle's getting married so going out to colorado
6:51 pm
Riverdance

big trip to the states - good for you
6:51 pm
Scrabbler

Who will take care of your cats?
6:51 pm
hurshy

i always think these things are a good idea far in advance, and then when they get close i'm like, ack, why am i doing this
6:51 pm
hurshy

oh, i'm already in the states
6:52 pm
hurshy

my friend will check in on the cats
6:52 pm
Barb's Horses

I am sure your friend will do a great job
6:52 pm
Scrabbler

I just set up Adirondack vacations for July + August and am already anxious about leaving my bunnies.
6:53 pm
Barb's Horses

i worry too when I have to leave mine don't think I will be going anywhere this year...not even up to Kamloops
6:53 pm
Riverdance

fooled us didnt you - the animals will do just fine - especially kitties
6:53 pm
Scrabbler

When will you leave, H?
6:53 pm
hurshy

sure barb but i will MISS them
6:53 pm
hurshy

monday
6:53 pm
Scrabbler

Take photos wit you, H.
6:54 pm
Barb's Horses

do you have someone you trust to look after them scrabs?
6:54 pm
redturtlehead

Ok I am now back to try to conquer the 71 words left. the dog is driving me nuts.
6:54 pm
Riverdance

when we went on vacation I think our bunnies did the bunny hop in joy we were leaving
6:54 pm
Scrabbler

My nephew lives with me but I do not entirely trust him. He is 22--thus still in those brain death years.
6:55 pm
Barb's Horses

why is the dog driving you nuts red?
6:55 pm
Scrabbler

Go Red go!
6:56 pm
Riverdance

of course our bunnies would rather NOT have human interaction - they cringined when the kids came to take them out of the hutch - you could read their thoughts
6:56 pm
Scrabbler

With rabbits a caretaker must be very aware of their eating + pooping habits, and their behavior.
6:57 pm
Barb's Horses

my neighbours are going away next week but I will go and check on the cats as the daughter doesn't seem to look after them and she lives there
6:58 pm
Barb's Horses

things can change quickly i take it scrabs? I know I pay more attention to my horses poop than others...it tells you alot
6:58 pm
Riverdance

we had the pleasure of having our friends dog stay with us when they were gone on vacation and they had a niece living with them but she wasnt trusted. My dogs (at least one of them) loved having a sleepover mate
6:58 pm
Barb's Horses

that sounds like a strange thing to do huh?
6:59 pm
Scrabbler

If rabbits stop eating + pooping, or become lethargic, it is a sign of a potentially serious GI problem called GI stasis.
6:59 pm
Barb's Horses

poop checking that is...for those who don't do that
6:59 pm
Riverdance

we get alot of horses poop from the farm up the street - great compost for our gardens once it cools off
6:59 pm
Barb's Horses

didn't one of your rabbits have that a little while back? or was that something else?
6:59 pm
Scrabbler

Makes sense to me, Barb. We know our pet's behaviors + routines in detail.
7:00 pm
Scrabbler

Yes, Tucker had it 2-3 mo ago.
7:00 pm
Scrabbler

House is on now--rerun but new for me.
7:00 pm
Riverdance

I can tell when something is bothering my dogs - our bunnies are now gone
7:01 pm
Barb's Horses

yes...i seem to know right away when something is wrong...my husband has learned to trust my calls with the animals
7:01 pm
Riverdance

LOVE House
7:01 pm
Barb's Horses

go enjoy scrabs and hurshy if you are still here have a blast and try not to worry to much.
7:02 pm
Barb's Horses

I best get dinner organized so we can get the pool started on its repairs.
7:02 pm
Scrabbler

I call my nephew daily when I am away--ask him questions and give him reminders.
7:02 pm
Barb's Horses

well i got 72 words today not too bad for me I guess
7:03 pm
Barb's Horses

I would come look after them scrabs but too far away
7:03 pm
Scrabbler

I am up to 73. I love big grid--just typing away with no intent to finish.
7:03 pm
Barb's Horses

okay well I am off...bye all (hugs)
7:04 pm
Scrabbler

Bye Barb. Make sure you check your horses' poop.
7:04 pm
Barb's Horses

7:41 pm
redturtlehead

hi!
7:41 pm
Trifioso

lol knitter - I was trying to type "greetings" whilst eating a chocolate bunny left over from easter....
7:41 pm
aknitter

sure blame the bunny. hi red
7:42 pm
Trifioso

trust me, it's been that sort of a day
7:43 pm
aknitter

nothing like a good chocolate bunny to make the world spin right
7:44 pm
Trifioso

I still can't decide if it was a good day or a bad one....
7:44 pm
redturtlehead

finished the H's! dog is driving me nutty! bark bark bark.
7:44 pm
redturtlehead

he needs nothing.
7:45 pm
aknitter

mine was very busy. a giant TGIF i mus say
7:45 pm
Trifioso

Today at 11am I got my biggest paycheck (to date) from work. Then I went to get my oil changed at 11:30, and they told me that my front brakes were shot, and the rotors too, and definitely needed changing RIGHT NOW. Total repair? ONE DOLLAR less than my paycheck.
7:45 pm
aknitter

perhaps he is trying to tell you that timmy is in the well - you really should listen red
7:46 pm
aknitter

ahh but you do still have that dollar! that sucks
7:49 pm
redturtlehead

no timmy, no well, dog is just in a mood, he does this every blue moon.
7:49 pm
stidgmere

Hello one and all. I am home from our sojourn in Quebec. Great place to visit but I am so glad to be home.
7:49 pm
Trifioso

no, I don't! the oil change and tire rotation kicked it over the total, and I ended up in the hole. again. but I am choosing to be proud that I made enough money to cover any of it, and no child support money will be used for car repair.
7:50 pm
aknitter

a good feeling - independance
7:50 pm
aknitter

independence even
7:50 pm
redturtlehead

well, trif, this has happened I believe to all of us at one point in time or another. its frustrating. but you will not need brakes for a while now.
7:50 pm
Trifioso

it's okay. you were just french for a minute
7:50 pm
stidgmere

Isn't it so true that windfalls usually come just in time cover what unexpectedly falls your way.
7:51 pm
redturtlehead

hi stidgmere.
7:51 pm
stidgmere

Hi red.
7:51 pm
redturtlehead

yes stidg, I just got a stock dividend check and it is of course, the appropriate amount to boost up my not so biggest paychecks ever. New job is ever so welcome.
7:51 pm
Trifioso

that is a good way to think of it indeed stidge
7:52 pm
BabbleRabble

Thinking positively is good. Can't change it. May as well be thankful you and the children are safer.
7:52 pm
Trifioso

thanks babble rabble
7:52 pm
aknitter

besides the peel of the fruit can anyone spoon feed me the other Z words please
7:52 pm
redturtlehead

BR, how are you doing? I have missed seeing you for a while.
7:53 pm
redturtlehead

think of a number that starts with Z knitter and you will have all three.
7:53 pm
stidgmere

For our usual frugal lifestyle, we were very out-of-character on this trip. Whenever we go somewhere it seems that stockmarket dives. We'll stay home for a while so the financial world can breathe easier.
7:53 pm
BabbleRabble

Hello, HT.
7:54 pm
Scrabbler

Back again. The good news, Trif, is that you now know that you need new brakes rather than having non-working brakes.
7:54 pm
aknitter

omg - i need new glasses and a new brain too! ty
7:54 pm
redturtlehead

BR have you been doing alright?
7:54 pm
Trifioso

I agree, scrabbler. we are safe, and that is important. it's always gonna be something, so I am going to be grateful that I had the money to fix what needed to be fixed.
7:55 pm
Scrabbler

At least it's "only" money--not a health issue, not a major home disaster...
7:55 pm
stidgmere

Hi scrabbler. We saw a sign that had three rabbits crossing the road. A caution road sign with yellow background and black sillouets (how do you spell that?). I took some pictures so hope to have it on my icon eventually.
7:55 pm
BabbleRabble

I am facing some challenges .... not too bad. Thanks for asking.
7:56 pm
redturtlehead

I will be thinking of you, if you like BR. I am finally starting to feel more like myself again.
7:56 pm
stidgmere

Yes BR, you have always been a chatter I've enjoyed seeing on the log.
7:56 pm
Scrabbler

Very cool, Stidgmere!
7:56 pm
Trifioso

amen, scrabbler
7:56 pm
Trifioso

bunnies crossing! heart.
7:57 pm
redturtlehead

but trif, I understand that moment of frustration, you work hard for cash and then poof in a moment it disappears.
7:57 pm
Scrabbler

BR, I had 5 mo of being engulfed by that Black Monster--came out about 2 mo ago. It was hellish + scary.
7:57 pm
BabbleRabble

Great. Glad you a better, H. Hello, stidgmere
7:57 pm
Scrabbler

Trif, what happened to poor Cinnamon?
7:58 pm
redturtlehead

Well, NR, we will see how long it lasts, but I am relieved at the moment.
7:58 pm
Scrabbler

((BR)) ((Red))
7:58 pm
redturtlehead

WIll be thinking of you BR, and let me know if there is something I can do for you.
7:59 pm
BabbleRabble

Happy you beat the monster, Scrabbler. Thanks
7:59 pm
BabbleRabble

Thanks, RedT
7:59 pm
Trifioso

He is now comfortably buried in the back yard, in a really nice spot. We put his favorite sleeping bed in there with him.
8:00 pm
Scrabbler

Had he gotten ill, Trif? How old was he?
8:00 pm
redturtlehead

boy this grid really does go on and on.
8:01 pm
Trifioso

he was of unknown vintage -- we freecycled him from someone who thought he was about 4 years old, and we called him our own for 5, so that's pretty good, in bunny years, from what Iunderstand
8:02 pm
redturtlehead

YW BR, It is my pleasure. Mnay a time you have helped me.
8:02 pm
Dorens

hi buddies
8:03 pm
Scrabbler

Oh, yes, Trif. Bunnies are geriatric at 6 or so. So he had a wonderful life! My oldest bunny is my wee Sebastian--just turned 8. Prior oldest was Callie--7 yrs 8 mo, and she died 2 yrs ago.
8:03 pm
Scrabbler

Hi Doren!
8:03 pm

8:05 pm
gapeach1066@yaho

May 10, 2008, wasn't is Scrabs? I lost little Charm that same day.
8:05 pm
Scrabbler

Yes, it sure was, Peach. I buried her on Mother's Day 2008.
8:06 pm
gapeach1066@yaho

I have a "rescue" dog now...sweet but not him.
8:06 pm
Scrabbler

My vet's office called the other day. A rabbit owner donated bags of hay after her bunny died and the staff thought of me. Over the years I have brought in 8 rabbits.
8:07 pm
Scrabbler

I miss my Callie. She was a beauty.
8:08 pm
gapeach1066@yaho

I have Charmy's picture on my cell phone....I show it to people I meet (kind of like showing a child's picture, I guess.
8:08 pm
Scrabbler

Trif, is your family cheering for the Bruins? Tied in 3rd period now.
8:09 pm
Trifioso

no, my family is either watching tropic thunder with their girlfriend, sleeping over a friends, or at mr. hates
8:09 pm
Trifioso

interesting about your vet's office, scrabbler - I am looking for someone to donate all my leftover bunny supplies to....
8:09 pm
Scrabbler

I am almost halfway then will go to bed. Must make rounds first then be on office at 0830.
8:10 pm
Scrabbler

Yep, call a vet's office, or local rabbit rescue.
8:10 pm
Dorens

halfway makes sense... this is certainly large.. but the beginning flowed soooo quickly
8:11 pm
Scrabbler

The beginning of large grids is always fun and makes one feel smug.
8:11 pm
Dorens

.....and then we have our comeuppance
8:11 pm
Trifioso

yes, it is fun when NBT comes quickly....
8:12 pm

It's my brain, Stid---entering REM stage while Babbling.
8:15 pm
stidmama

8:15 pm
Trifioso

Phineas and Ferb? I never really see any "adult" humor. well, they did build a terra cotta warrior room today.
