THAT shows what a totally high culture country in which you live.
I would imagine that Andy M is playing (?) I shall enjoy my day...and yes,
writing will be a good part of it. Karpal has not settled in...I've been lifting
and wristing ten-pound weights for years ~ mainly so I won't develop
problems shifting difficult buses (we have to take them out of gear at each
stop*, picking up and dropping students...state law). Thanks for your
concern. I've enjoyed your last two submissions...is that snow I see? What the heck...

Richard
*THAT's a LOT of shifting...

Would you believe Andy lost his last game .He had played a singles ...and a doubles the day before..and won....and 2 days before that he had a stomach bug...We know what they are like!!!..He was very zombified in that last match...Never mind he will spring back:D.......Glad you like my favourite tree.....It was the thickest snow that we have had in a long time......but Spring is here now!Smileys spring / 04 by RogerKeithBarrett

So Sorry about Andy. Well, that's tennis...and that's the stomach flu.
Both can be upsetting. We had 8 new inches of snow last Thursday and
Friday...and back to driving, after 10 days away, there is not a smidgen of
snow about..anywhere. The streets are back to their normal width.
Wonderful to behold the power of the sun, really heating up!

Enjoy your week, Trish...

I'm trying...and I'm scared! Maybe I should just tell them to RE-Tire my bus,
and forget the whole thing. I know, however, that I can not, will not face another
winter like our last. Like the phrase I learned from the movie Chariots of Fire:
"I have lots of regrets...but NO DOUBTS!

Hey! THANKS Trish...Hope you are well and survived intact the
Xmas Dinner etc etc. It was a fun piece to do...not much time spent.
And thanks for commenting on my Journal.

Enjoy the year's end festivities. At least our temps in the last few days

Some day, maybe you'll tell me what's
on your menu. Curious to know: English 'fare'
as they say on Poirot, topped off with, is it
Spotted Dick?. Yes, I heard that on Poirot!

Chips (my wife's nickname for ME) as in :Fish 'n _____'

Well.....I'm cooking lamb chops on New years Eve....with roasted potatoes and mashed potatoes and carrots  and peas!I may add roasted honeyed parsnips(because I like them):D.....The sweet dish isn't Spotted Dick and custard:D....it's mince pies and brandy sauce.

Chips are not on the menu:D.....but we do have fish n'chips on Fridays!!!

No, no, no! Chips is what my wife calls me...she never calls me DiCK ever. And I know you wouldn't be serving Fish 'n Chips for such a grand occasion.
You are a superb cook who can prepare and serve fine, English cuisine. Thanks for letting me know your menu, Trish!

My wife is the ONLY one who calls me that (Chips) ~ in the company of
others, Richard. The first book that she read in English was Goodbye, Mr Chips..
Our taste in foods is quite similar. I love to buy artisan breads, toast them and put on
some peanut butter. That's ambrosia!!!

We're back to frigid here again...Happy New Year...
Mr Chips
