In todays newspaper funnies. Two characters talking:
"I've never seen you around here."
"I just got in from Brussles."
"Oh? Are you married?"
"Yes, Why?"
"Any sprouts?"....

Hi all

Never posted in the weekender before, having a very wierd day so thought Iíd check in.

Horrible morning where I was invited to a pub where I would DEFINITELY have drink and I stupidly agreed. Then spent two hours stressing will I drink wonít I drink; I will drink, I wonít drink. Eventually saw sense and found an excuse and out.

Itís really unsettled me. Ate all afternoon, just been for a run, an not going to drink today for sure but feeling wobbly

Ben123, the pub trips were not too stressful to me but I only went to either watch some sporting event I couldn't watch at home, or I went to eat some food I couldn't make better myself.

Pubs aren't what they've cracked up to be, I don't go very often any more.

I really don't like being around people who are "altered" by drugs or alcohol.

Hang on, you did good. If you made it out of there without drinking, you got it right.





In other, Unrelated news , a doe just ran through my yard. LOVE Autumn. She looked a little stressy being in a big open area in the freaking city. Hope she doesn't have any close encounters with cars. Be safe, lovely.

Evening everyone.

Purps, good to see you around again, and please stick with us. If I’m not mistaken, you recently started a new job. I hope it’s been treating you kind.

Dinner and then we shall watch Dunkirk. Too bad I missed out on the big screen, so the telly will have to do.

Mike, I liked the way that guy in your clip dealt with the AV. As the saying goes, we don’t negotiate with terrorists!

Bimin I feel like singing... ĎDoe, a deer, a female deer...í Lovely

I know, I avoid this one pub because itís just asking for trouble, itís a tradition for a sports team Iím with to go there and my AV just nailed me. Unusual and therefore disturbing. Tbf I had seen it coming and had prepared with snacks in the car that helped me decide-out (I think)

But yeah safe and sound Iím just sounding off

Welp I've angered my wife, I hope she doesn't stay pissed at me all weekend. We only have one car, I ride a motorcycle. We had a big night at work last night and I went home early expecting to come in in the morning and clean up.

Nature had other plans there's a flash flood warning and a storm blew threw as soon as I was getting ready to leave. I texted and called everyone who needed to know immediately. I need new tires and my street turned into a river.

It's not safe for me. She's pissed for some reason. Told me I needed to let her know sooner and I'm letting everyone down by not holding my end of the bargen.

Now she's telling me my text to her didn't say I wasn't coming in, my text said "I was just about to leave but a major storm just hit and we lost power "

I guess it wasn't clear but she would never let me ride in a storm like that anyway.

I feel like I just can't win with her sometimes.

I just don't appreciate being made to feel like dirt and called names. Three phone calls at me now.

I am a bad communicator, I always have been. I'm scared of people and dyslexia so I mix words up all the time and think everyone sees the implied meaning in things. She telling me I should have just said I can't come in and I suppose I should have said that. In my mind saying "I was about to leave the house but it's storming all of a sudden and we just lost power" was all that needed to be said. She won't let me ride in a storm. Issues with communicating is one of the reasons I drank everyday. My wife getting pissed at me is the only thing that really triggers me anymore but I'm not going to drink at it. I'll probably get ignored all weekend now.

Thanks, I'm getting over it. There more I think about it there's nothing I could have done and whatever she wished I had done wouldn't change a thing about the situation so oh well. If she's going to be mad that's her thing to deal with.
