pumpkinny,
Welcome aboard! Congrats on being sober for the first year of the rest of a good life.

Thanks Dee,
Funny how I can be dry when all around me is wet.

Morning overs. Hope you're all ok.

Itchy, you certainly are a dry one! Hehe.

Hi pumpkinny congratulations on a year.

Well, back to work today after 4lovely days off. Went for a walk on the beach yesterday, barefoot! Is there any other way. Would've paddled too but tide was too far out.

There was hundred, literally, of geese at the boating lake, I love the cleverness of geese. The formations they make, when flying, where the ones on the edges of the formation fly while the inner ones rest. The head of the formation changes so they all swap places. Amazing.

Do you know you should never have just one goose. When they sleep there is always one, again taking it in turns, who stays awake to guard.

Nature is amazing and wonderful.

Have a good Tuesday.

Welcome Pumpkinny congrats again on reaching a year bud

Squab pigeon is a right fancy dish here in the uk pricey too i would never eat it myself what i find funny tho is in the uk a lot of ppl call them flying rats as lots of ppl think thier dirty full of disease etc (there actual name is rock dove and ppl forgot what they done in the wars) but then they go out & eat it for dinner

I know you were joking itch i dont even think ive had game before i think ive had guineafowl once buts thats it guineafowl is like a little chicken ?

Have a great day everyone

Welcome pumpkinny and congrats!

Been monitoring the Pluto fly-by, fascinating stuff. Humans have now visited all the traditional planets. Yes, Pluto, you will always be a planet to me!

Remember the perpetually drunk friend "B" I ranted about this past weekend. Well, he was at it again.

A mutual friend announced on Facebook that he was going to inpatient alcohol rehab. My friend was making fun of him and saying he will fail. Of course all while totally drunk. Everyone with in ear shot of him was laughing at him or trying to get away. I finally told him never to ask me to do something with him (he was celebrating his birthday) if he had been drinking.

"You are a (expletive deleted, as they used to say) alcoholic B, deal with it head on like K is doing." My final words of the evening. Hated to do it, but I had enough.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Drake - I am generally a very tolerant and patient person but sometimes, if pushed far enough, I will 'explode' with some kind of snippy, regretful comment that is loaded with truth.... I really hope your friend realises that he needs help / has to get sober soon

I kicked A at my job yesterday.. Now time to dive in for another week, sigh. I might try to take tomorrow off. I'm going fishing. Literally going fishing.

Welcome and congrats Pumkinny.
Itch how did you get the belt back on?

What's the difference between a squab pigeon and a regular pigeon?

Mags nature really is amazing, I agree.

Drake-sounds like he deserved it.

Oh man I have such a busy day today. Have a good Tuesday overs,

Wolfe 2 years sober wooohoooo


P.s. The pigeons did great things in the war (not that I was around) but I was told. They actually culled a lot of pigeons in our workshop last year and I was so upset!

Drake, Your friend may not remember what you've said to him, as he didn't remember meeting you. It's so sad really, but yes, it's easy to lose patience with him, I imagine.

Enjoy your fishing. Inpar.

Hi OLL, Fbl, Andy, feeling-good, zippy, toots, itchy, Dee. And all my sr friends.
