How's your day?

Anyone who buys their wife a tin opener for her birthday deserves all the aggravation they get!

 

If you were my husband, I'd buy you a vat of fairy liquid and a pair of Marigolds for yours! :wacko:

Phil I agree with you about buying practical presents years we went through  the phase of buying each other all sorts of "nice" presents but now when either of us needs anything we just buy it. 

A few years ago she could not think of what to buy me for Christmas so she brought me an item, that I try my hardest not to use yet, a Funeral Plan.  Guess what I brought her for her birthday.

A friend of mine gave her neighbour a bottle of rose scented body wash for his birthday. I suggested that when it was her birthday he returned the compliment and give her a bottle of Old Spice

When my Ma in law was alive, she always used to ask Tina what to get me for Christmas. I would always say, " a box of screws or some audio tapes." Something I could use, something practical.

Tina and I have not bought each other Christmas presents for years.

I'm 78 next month, what do I need now that I don't have.

Mind you, I can always use recordable DVDs.

Last Christmas one of our boys said to me that he’d like to buy his Dad a defibrillator ……. I agreed that it may be a very practical gift but didn’t think my husband would really appreciate the thought!  I could understand why he had considered the idea because his best friend’s father (a good friend of ours) had recently suffered a heart attack on the squash court and was saved by a defibrillator.  I hope I never need to wish we’d had one in the house!

Liz a wonderful thought by your son, there should be many more defibrillators about. Schools should teach first aid and the use of defibrillators to pupils in the last year of School.

Having done a First Aid course a couple of years ago, including practice on how to use a defibrillator, I was disturbed to find out there are only 2 in our village and a code is needed to actually get them.   Apparently you have to call 999 to get the code.  The security is needed to stop mindless vandalism apparently.

By the  time I could access it and get it wired up on to the patient, it might well be too late!

I have noticed in my area the appearance of defibrillators outside funeral parlours. It always makes me smile. Sort of, last chance before your body ends up on their slab!:wacko:

Sort of linked to Jill’s post above ….

Paul is taking a funeral today and the song that’s been requested as the coffin leaves the church is one by the Everly Brothers.  Can you guess the  first name of the deceased lady?

This is true!

I’m afraid you are correct Phil.

Fen people have a strange sense of humour….

yesterday  Booked a sun holiday (hopefully) The Passport that both master and I had did not have 6 months left on it. So we had to renew them. Saga rep told us thst to renew by internet or post we would not get passport back in time.  So booked in at Passort office  for Tuesday. Frist you have  to go though security just like you are at the airport, then you report to a desk and finaly you see some one.  Now don't get me wrong i am not a racist but it struck me as funny, as we are now back to being the UK, both the serurity gaurds were not english born i could tell this by the way they spoke, the girl behind the desk looked very oriental. The last person that I saw must have held a uk passport.  This just me me laugh as all the security we are put though. You never know these people coud have been spy's. Of case I had to have lastword  " Are we having those big black Passports back"" I asked  then I knew by the funny way she looked at me and just her body language. Where she was from.

When we lived in Nottingham I always fed the birds and loved watching them from the kitchen window. Since we've been here we dont see a great mix of birds. I suppose because its the tractors and presence of farmers that keep them away, also shotguns when the hunting season comes. This morning I could see quite a few sparrows ( always present) flitting backwards and forwards but they seemed different. They were faster and swooped down towards the house and once one nearly collided with me. I cant get a really good look at them as they won't  keep still but I did notice they are very similar to a sparrow but have a short tail and the underneath part is red/orange , only the tail not the breast. When resting anywhere it flutters puffing up its tail. I've come to the conclusion its a Black Redstart. I am certainly no ornithologist but looking up on internet this is what I've  come across. Apparently a rare bird. It looks as though I'm going to spend all morning watching out for them. There are two who are playing " catch me if you can " Lovely start to the day.

Mary, my brother is coming for Christmas now that Brits can come to the States again. His passport ran out last year,  so he sent for a new one. He was told it could take up to 10 weeks. He got it back in a week!
