What good news, John is still with us, I have missed him these past few weeks. Maybe he will be back on board by Xmas. Not a lot to say to-day, been to chiropodist, had lunch(dinner), went shopping on the net ,mostly foodstuff for Xmas. Makes it much easier to have our shopping delivered to the door. Every one seems in good spirits at the moment. Hope you are not too full of spirits over the Festive season Hic Hic!! JUNE WHERE ARE YOU< OFF GALIVANTING AGAIN?!! You never know where she gets to do you fellow Brummies. Time and tide again , time to go. Hope To spend a bit more time to-morrow. So for now LLOL from your Friendly Strong man Jim & his Amazon Mary C.

Dont want to be run over by them. laughter. To all our friends hope you are all well. Have a nice day. Tat Tar June. xx


Rick Report 10 Dec 2004 12:17

Hello June, Am I late for roll call lolol ???? We went late night Xmas shopping last night and it was horrid. Now I remember why I normally do it all before December ! Just about to drop Jan down to the city centre so she can carry on where we left off while I work from home. Glad it's Friday - no work tomorrow hooray :-) Rick.xx


June Report 10 Dec 2004 14:38

Hi Rick, Well there is now two of us on parade LOL Not late Rick only the CAPTAIN Jim has not come on duty yet. Must say I am not a lover of shopping, that is why when I do have to go out and see things I buy them and put them away. Hence all the shopping done. I bet our Jan is going mad at the shops, hope you have given her extra money to spend. Or the credit cards will be in for a bashing. LOL. Lord Jim, Are you still in the park pushing the pram with your G.grandson in it ????? All for now so Tat Tar June.


June Report 10 Dec 2004 15:31

Thank goodness that's over,maybe we can get back to a bit of peace and tranquility, but who wants to? Sooner a short laugh than a long face. Jan on a serious note, Do you really think I would Desert you,never. (DON'T LET RICK READ THIS) If he does it could come to blows and I can't stand the sight of blood, especially when it is mine. Have you got the mistletoe up yet? If you have ask Rick to give you a couple of XX's from me LLOL. June Hope I have solved my Site problem then maybe I can sort out my sound. It did work once but having moved I may have disconnected something, so I will have to try and sort my cables out.Hey Ho if it isn't one thing it's another, what a hard life it is. Wish we could go back to the pen and ink day's when everything seemed to be more tranquil. I still have trouble with this MODEM world and feel such a fool at times,especially when my ten year old greatgrand son says YOU ARE FUNNY GRANDAD, IT'S EASY, LOOK and HeyPresto click on this and type in that and there you are, all done and dusted. Faith There is no greater wish than mine to stay in touch with you and all my other friends on the site. It has only been a short length of time, but I cannot remember having so many friends as I have now. (shut up I'll be weeping next with emotion) John If you read this PLEASE PLEASE come back on site. WE ALL MISS YOU. Well now all here we go, lets see what happens when I click on Add Message. LLOL to All From Hopeful Jim and Ever Loving Mary C.


Margaret Report 12 Dec 2004 01:29

Hi Everyone, I just got back from Calgary, a drive from hell, met my Brother In law for breakfast, wind was really blowing and started snowing, seem to clear by when we had finished breakfast, so I decided I would head out for the 3 hour drive, half an hour in to the drive ran in to a traffic jam, going round a accident, two vans totally smashed, 6 taken to hospital three of them young children. got moving but very slowly only one lane clear of snow, another hour on ran in to ice, could see two vehicles in the ditch so slowed down did a full circle on the ice and luckily didnt hit anyone but finished up on the sholder of the highway facing the wrong way, drove a short distance to an over pass so I could get turned around the right way, anyway after that the road started to clear and coming round the mountains it was pretty good, anyway just got home an hour later than usual. So Jim thats my excuse for not being on Parade, my shoes where dirty anyway so you would have only yelled at me, and probably made me peel spuds for you. Well while I was in Calgary got all my Christmas shopping done, wrapped and delivered. so now I am going to relax for the rest of the time till Christmas, and to start the season I am off for a drink with friends. so nighty night talk to everyone tomorrow.
