Brian's OH was quite poorly some time back - perhaps that's the reason

I expect Julia is lost down in her allotment, filling up her freezer for the winter. Hope so anyway and that that is the only reason for her non appearance.

Also hope Brian and Piers are ok too.

Have just mailed Brian telling him he is missed.

It was some years since he sent his address, so I hope my message reaches him.

Havent seen Piers from Kent for Yonks . Think he may have not renewed his subs

Sad to see lots of names we were familiar with fall by the wayside for some reason or another.

Just been a bit busy (and a bit miffed for being RR'd for suggesting that Terry Wogan might be Irish).
However, OH is OK in that the tests have been inconclusive between bowel cancer and diverticulitis and she's not got any ongoing symptoms, so decided against precautionary surgery as the risk/benefit ratio was not favourable (surgery could be fatal due to her loss of half a lung 17 years ago and could lead to impaired health and a colon bag for nothing) and will get another MRI next year.
I've been busy with hospital appointments for her and other family members;
getting the garden into shape for a probable K9 Partners puppy; refelting the shed and summer house; looking for a heavier and more powerful car for towing the caravan; taking Shadow our 13 year old labrador to hydrotherapy swimming and accupuncture; collecting for FoodBank for 2 days (excellent result from Tesco customers, 87 boxes in one day to which Tesco will add 30% in value on a clubcard); an abortive day spent trying to see the South East Airshow at Manston; making notes to do a genealogy talk to our mens' group in September; a couple of fairly unsuccessful days at Record Offices; checking the research of one of OH's second cousins; and a few other things.
So not bored, just exhausted!
