A toast to Canada Day, too! [In reply to] Can't Post

*Raises glass to my neighbors up North!**

I live on the US/Canadian border, so there will be fireworks for days around here...!

Glad to sneak in for a lemonade for once...since I was here last, I think, I've got a new graduate in my family, a son with a new job, another son with a new girlfriend, and I'm another year older! So it's been busy!

Cheers, all and happy holidays to those celebrating, and happy start of July to the rest of you!

Yum -- thank you! [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, "cool" is relative this time of year. If the early-morning temperature is below 80, we're tempted to put on sweaters Tongue Of course we'll all remembering those icy days in February, when the temps were in the teens, and rolling our eyes.

Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?

A man may do both. For not we but those who come after will make the legends of our time. The green earth, say you? That is a mighty matter of legend, though you tread it under the light of day!

The best thing from this is... [In reply to] Can't Post

That we're bonding again and that he's learning some lessons that will help him. No fun to go through now, but nonetheless valuable. I'm just glad he's getting them *relatively* 'cheap', as the Parenting with Love and Logic folks like to say.

I still wanna write, but perhaps I haven't had the 3rd drink from the Hippocrene after all (reference to the book "Silverlock" by John Myers-Myers and I suppose a small plug for it since it's pretty incredible as a reference to LOADS o'great literature!)

Sorry about Gaffer's green beans. [In reply to] Can't Post

Maybe he should try planting them in the shade. Mine do pretty well in just morning sun. I can't imagine tomatoes not doing well in heat. Mine don't do as well some years because it isn't hot enough! Same problem with peppers, though, I don't grow hot ones, just sweet peppers.

Happy Fiesta, Everyone!! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

Wow! It's Friday AGAIN!? and JULY!!!??? This spring and now into summer have just flown right past my right ear! But I did LOVE going to the LotR Marathon for the past 3 Tuesday nights. Especially the RotK edition which I was able to moot with FantasyFan and her ever-incredible daughter!! *waves HOWDY* I'm going to trail off in a sec and do my mini-writeup on it.

I'm off to Mom's for the weekend to work on her basement window and grill some steaks! She's doing wonderfully well after her very hard illness and is living on her own again. 89yo amazing woman!

I hope everyone has a glorious weekend and that the USers have a chance to catch some fireworks. I think I'll grab a chocolate milkshake, Altaira! I feel reckless and wild today! :D

Cheers one and all! Stay safe!

Here's to Canada! [In reply to] Can't Post

If air travel wasn't such a hassle these days, the Gaffer and I would probably be visiting Canada, just to cool off a bit.

All your busy-ness sounds positive. Another toast, then, to you and all your family members! Slainte!

Due date for Acheron Jr. is a month away, but he's likely going to be here sooner than that. Smile

Painters are finishing up the condo today; got a new color in the baby's room and a refresh in other rooms. Getting the crib next weekend, and we'll be all ready. Or as ready as we're going to be, anyway. Wink

For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much -- the wheel, New York, wars, and so on -- while all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man, for precisely the same reasons. -- Douglas Adams

It's Craft Show and Lobster Fest weekend! [In reply to] Can't Post

In our town, they set up a huge arts and crafts show all around the lawn of the Town Hall, and the local Lions Club serves boiled lobsters in the shell - it's always fun, cracking them to poke out the sweet meat and dipping it in melted butter! A true New England treat!

(If you don't want lobster, they do have barbecued chicken.)

Might I have a raspberry Iced Tea please, Altaira? And how's the weather been out your way? Will you be having fireworks? (Our fireworks are in two weeks, when they close down the main street for a massive all-town bazaar.)

I didn't know you Brits knew about that yummy "delicacy"! Laugh Named for the muddy river, not the state...although after the recent flooding, it's all too true. Unsure

I was bored... [In reply to] Can't Post

So I got on the Goodreads website and started "becoming a fan of" some of the authors on my book list. I haven't quite figured out what being a fan of an author means, because I haven't seen any posts or other activity related to these author pages. I don't even see a place to show me all the authors I've become a fan of.

In any case, I ran across an "author" page for Sir Derek Jacobi. He isn't really the author of anything, he's the audiobook narrator, so either there isn't a way to differentiate between author and narrator, or some Goodreads users weren't careful when they added the books to the site.

One of the books in his list, however, is Mr. Bliss by JRRT. I didn't know that he'd narrated anything by Tolkien. I'm fairly sure that it's not on audible.com, which is where I get my audiobooks. I'm positive I would have snapped it up, if it was there. Unless it was abridged, of course, but I don't recall even seeing it.

My weekend plans are pretty dull. Taking mom on her errands tomorrow, and probably having lunch or something with her on Monday for the holiday. Otherwise, just slouching around the house and running a few personal errands, as I usually do.

By the way, if anyone here is on Goodreads, I'd love to be your Goodreads friends! PM me with your Goodreads ID, or I can give you mine. Cool

The summer's speeding along, isn't it? [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll be looking forward to your write-up of the marathon. The Gaffer and I didn't even try to go -- theater seats are uncomfortable anyway, and even with the best movies in the world, I wouldn't have been able to sit so long. But I'm enjoying the heck out of reading about everyone's else adventures.

Cheers backatcha, gramma!

How awesome to hear how well your mom is doing. It's obvious where you get your energy and love for life. Smile

I, too, absolutely LOVED seeing the LOTR movies on the big screen again. I hope, hope, hope they do it again at some point.

Have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy those steaks - yum!
