Morning Gang. An old boss of mine has passed away. I'll be attending his prayer service this evening. His wishes were summer attire, no black suits. I'm expecting to see a few of the old gang. Gosh, this is going back over 20 years, It'll be interesting to see how we've changed.

Welcome to Weekenders lilymaz!

There is no such time as 3 o'clock in the morning

Good luck Gilmer.

Canadian Koala, I did not know you lived in Quebec. Never been there but it looks a beautiful city. One of my boyhood heroes - Gilles Villeneuve - is from Quebec.

OK I am stepping out for the football. An England game is usually something to be endured rather than savoured, even for the neutral as we do not play the most attractive football. No disrespect to Panama but I really don't wish to lose to a country named after a straw hat.

Edit: I have just read your post - sorry for your loss Dragon.

I've had a great boxing workout, glad I ventured myself out there.

Now Enjoyed a cup of coffee, healthy lunch later.

Sao, England scored already.

Dragon - Sorry for your loss.

See you all.

Dragon, I’m sorry for your loss, but I hope you and your old coworkers have a warm and pleasant reunion, even though not the best of circumstances.

I did it! I baked both cakes and got my morning shower, too!

But I think the haircut I got Friday is a dud! After I style it, it makes my head look like a box!

This lady is the best stylist I’ve ever had. I think I’ll go back to her the second she comes back from vacation to get this odd cut fixed!

Gilmer - I hope your stylist will make you happy with the haircut again.

Sao - Are you enjoying? What do you think - 10:0?

Woke up early to cheer for England with the hubs, "Let's Go England!"
They don't seem to need me. Wow, just mowing them over.
Sorry for your loss Dragon.
MB...good job. I know you were worried about sleep deprivation. You should rest well tonight after all that action!
Gilmer, sorry about the "Doo" I fear bad haircuts. Hope you can figure out how to work it.

Beautiful Sunday here. After soccer, off to church. My choir director is out of town, hopefully we don't have a skeleton crew like last week. Enjoy the day friends.

A lot of people here know about Venus....my avatar....my love.....

She really really fetched like that too....every day of her life until she got sick. She was half Burmese...dog-like cats....she also demanded water in the bath (an inch or so) and she would get in and wash and drink.

He found his way into a home hostel for young workers (foyer de jeunes travailleurs) and met one of my wife's friends there. We have been friends for nearly 20 years.

We have some more visitors today. More drinkers.
Why is this bugging me so much....
I just don't want to be around it.

I need to chill a little.
So prognostics for the word cup winner.... Spain?
Croatia? Mexico?

Coffee time.
Love....why did he drive home? I would have taken his keys.
Sounds like this is stressful for you being around all of these drinkers....please take care....I personally couldn't do it. ♥♥

Congrats on 9 months, Venus!

Welcome to weekenders, Lily.

It is not hot today and I am really enjoying some breeze when sitting on the balcony.

Ok, who is playing next?

Apologies for hijacking the thread where are my manners? Hey Vman!
Football aside this has been a wonderful weekend my eldest daughter has finished all of her exams and at last we are spending quality time together. I'm beginning to believe we can repair the damage with consistent parenting, making positive choices and above all rock solid sobriety.
Thanks for humouring my little drop-by weekenders ❤❤❤

Vinny, I'd be pretty annoyed with I had to hang out with drinkers... It's good that you have an escape plan if it gets too much.

Venus, aww congratulations on 9 months! Happy anniversary! ❤❤❤

Thank you all for letting me share silly pics and videos of Leon with you... He's very special to me.
