Pondy, ask Dee if he'd fix the pictures. He did it before when someone posted a huge picture. I don't know how he fixed it, but he did.

This is a beautiful piece of music. Leroy Anderson was quite a genius.

Good morning Whiners on this very wet, cold and windy morning, it feels like winter has arrived early. I got up a bit later than usual this morning, I was so tired, I slept on a sort of sofa when I was away and it wasn't too good for either sleep or the old bones.

Thank you Least, it's good to be back and I'm glad Billie is back to her old self. I love hearing the laughter of happy children, especially mine then one of them goes and spoils it by squabbling, lol.

I hope you are all better now Opi.

Enjoy your church service Ann, your pies sound a delight, did you bake them yourself?

Thank you Hevyn, I have so much to catch up on, it will take me days, it's good to be back home. I just need to get on top of all that washing now.

Morning Mags, I hope you managed to get some more sleep, 1.30 is far too early.
Enjoy your visit with your step mum and I'm sure you'll find somewhere to park. You sound just like me, too much forward thinking with your mind working overtime. It will pass, just try and go with the flow. Big hugs (( )).

I love Gigi Pondlady and I'm glad your photo's are big because I haven't got my glasses on and I can see her properly.

. We're going to visit my step granddaughter today, she had baby no. 3 on Friday, Ralphie weighing in at 8lbs, I can't wait to meet him.
I'm popping off now to make breakfast, see you all later. Have an amazing Sunday. xxx

DAMMIT! A long and deeply profound (serious, I got some learnin' today) post lost somehow. Basically saw a friend in a shared studio space- she who runs the recovery art program and was the influence that gotr me into art school where she is a senior student. I shared my difficulties in processing perspective measurments in my fried brain- like a cheap electronic language translator that gets it all wrongf. She has offered to help if I go to the recovery art morning (Fridays). I wanted to 'yes but' it away with perfectly reasonable stuff like 'yes but I have moved on', 'yes but I will be too tired- as I have class Friday afternoon'. Nothing in life is free or easy- if it means something to us- so I am going. Probably gym on Tuesdays there as well (free- a set up proper gym with a qualified trainer).

I also connectively found some deeper and more profound insights into how I think, thus learned and grew a little. A very big walk with my little friend, I talked a lot- but she is opening up...I get her, as my brain is fried too. No pain, no gain. I get really worked up about not being good enough. I do ot want that feeling, do not invite it- try to get on with my study- but I honestly do not process numbers in my damaged brain.
I finished off the share with lots of pointless facts, starting with Ann in capitals. These pointless facts were then finished off by Daffy Duck just hearing crickets chirp after a dance routine, where he stalks off stage muttering 'ingrates'

...my last pointless fact was a pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes. (why, how and who researched this is almost as disturbing to think about as is the thought of who funded such a research project).

(please do not encourage me here- I can imagine pig's orgasm being a focus in common bonding and sharing here with humour, like sauna pants, where I get one of those nice messages from admin asking me to remember newie's who read a lot of stuff about pig's orgasms is off putting- like s).

Oh Daisy, you were not here in the days of my blackened lasagna, a sad and ugly story of lasagna slipping out of the pan, into the oven, catching fire and making one gawd awful mess...while I swore and yelled at Bubba to order a pizza because dinner was on fire. I don't bake, I got kicked out of home economics in high school...well, you get the gist.

So, on behalf of all mankind, I did not bake these pies, I got them at a lovely farm where they bake wonderful pies all day long.

Pondy, Gigi is adorable, and deserves a large and lovely spot here on whiners. I can see that she is a cuddle dog, and those eyes just melt my heart.

Gotta run and get ready for church and then up to the cottage for the day. Have a wonderful Sunday, everyone. Love you all.

PJ, be true to yourself, no matter how courses or people affect your life. I will spend the day ridding myself of the thought of pigs, and crickets and all things disturbing.

I would love to hire a lawn service!

Unfortunately, unless I hit the lottery ... I AM the lawn service.
