Good morning everyone.

Irishfey, cheer up, that`s all I could say, I`m not in a cheery mood myself.
Just did my Income Tax and I`ll be paying the Government.
Going to see another person about my Income Taxes, see what he comes up with.

Well, so much for my street for a few days.. Got a frozen sewer and the city is here tearing it up.. Sure making it hard for the hookers tho, can't work Gore anymore and now Francis and Blucher are close off for a bit. They'll be working Tancred and Hughes for a day or two now...:)

Celeste, that means you have too much money..LOL..:).
bounder 3/19/2014 9:15:49 AM Report

tomorrow income tax time, I go to Dorothy's helping hand in the west end, cheap and fast.
Irish, I quit posting in the other room ,they all think they're better than you, but they all post after the fact.
DutchTouch 3/19/2014 9:19:09 AM Report

I won't say good morning because by all isn't.
It's getting very nasty out there with the snow and wind whipping around bringing with it all kinds of aches and pains.

Anyone notice any blackflies or mosquitoes yet? No?
Well that's the silver lining to this weather.
Wicket 3/19/2014 9:39:34 AM Report

Good blah morning. Irishfey, unlike you, my body likes the cold weather (same ailments, plus a couple more); heat and humidity leave me lethargic, in pain and unable to motivate myself.
However, I do enjoy being at the beach and in the lake (it helps), so am also looking forward to a change in the weather; sooner, rather than later.
irishfey 3/19/2014 9:51:46 AM Report

We did ok on our Income tax but was just because i"m on CPD...I would trade that anyday for a healthy body!... Bounder, yes , i " try" and stay outa there but it just irks me that you can"t say anything to a poster without some " others" jumping in with a rude comment.. I told Celeste i would stay out of there as i know she does not like strife, and who does?.. Just Curious.. so, will you be hanging around Tankard St. today? ,lol :):):).. see the smiley faces ? lol... I would take the flies and even some bats flying around me head compared to this weather ,lol... later friends
irishfey 3/19/2014 9:55:42 AM Report

Wicket.. too bad there wasn"t a "happy medium "for all our ailments... "" re .. Good blah morning ,lol,, sounds right ,lol

Wild Turkey 3/19/2014 10:08:09 AM Report

@Joejo---It's a national chain pet store.

Your morning chuckle

Fantastic true story

A woman was flying from Seattle to San Francisco. Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sacramento along the way.

The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off the aircraft the plane would re-board in 50 minutes...

Everybody got off the plane except one lady who was blind...

A man had noticed her as he walked by and could tell the lady was blind because her guide dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of her throughout the entire flight... He could also tell she had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached her, and calling her by name, said, "Kathy, we are in Sacramento for almost an hour, would you like to get off and stretch your legs?"

The blind lady said, "No thanks, but maybe Buddy would like to stretch his legs."

All the people in the gate area came to a complete stand still when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a guide dog for the blind! Even worse, the pilot was wearing sunglasses!

People scattered. They not only tried to change planes, but they were trying to change airlines!

Two tips for the day…
1. Things are not always as they appear and 2. A day without laughter is a day wasted.
jojoe71 3/19/2014 10:52:45 AM Report

Soowat. ...very funny LOL. You gave us our morning chuckle which we all need in light of all the dire world news. WT ...thanks for the reply...I just read that the pet store in Cambrian mall going to have a big expansion.. amazing that the Sault can support so many pet stores. The Cambrian mall one is also going to have a pet shower and grooming service.
irishfey 3/19/2014 12:12:31 PM Report

Back again,lol.. Soowat, that was funny, made me day..A good moral for folks too.. helping others! Some folks in a high position feel it might be beneath them to help that Lady... wouldn"t it be a GREAT world if we all did as that Pilot had done???. ...
Just Curious 3/19/2014 1:51:58 PM Report

Two things this time;

Irish, since the prostate surgery hookers don't mean much anymore, not that they ever did...:) :)Just part of the scenery down here...:).

And why are people so friggin' stupid?? There is a huge trailer mounted sign blocking 2/3 of the street here, construction equipment all over, flashing lights no matter were you look. A few minutes ago a van dreove around the sign and a couple of city trucks and could go no further. The driver, altho I couldn't hear him, started shaking his fist at them and his mouth was moving real fast and he wanted them to get out of his way. He finally had to back up and go on down Wellington. He doesn't live on this street as I have learned all the vehicles that belong here. Can he not see a huge sign that says ROAD CLOSED??? People......:(
celeste5 3/19/2014 2:18:29 PM Report

Going to get my Income taxes done again,
I have tension, a headache and heavy shoulders, LOL, Well, That`s Life.
mallet 3/19/2014 2:19:49 PM Report

Just Curious..

I regret to say you find this behaviour the world over, why, I have no idea, ever watched people trying a door that says "open other side" "one way street" and people drive wrong way, big sign in a door of shop that says "closed" but they still try the door anyway. Many years ago in the U K I saw a person die, on a building site with a fence round it, red signs saying "keep out" and a roped off area with big signs stating "open hole", they had got through the fence and dispite people shouting to them continued to walk through the site, lift up the ropes and walked right into the hole, and fell some 30 odd ft onto the footings that were being formed. How do you explain that to relatives, mental illness?, stupidity?, what?, and what about the people who tried to stop them? how do they deal with that scene? I felt bad for my brother who was working at that site as well, and saw what happened but could not stop that person.
People do what they want , doesn't matter what the situation, because they are entitled to...
irishfey 3/19/2014 4:19:51 PM Report

Just Curious and Mallet...Curiosity killed the cat! Most folk are just of a curious nature and can"t help just to see what"s on the other side. They think, it can"t be that bad ,or the sign dosn"t relate to them. Remember awhile ago we were talking about the shotgun sign?.. Well, years back, we drove by an old abandoned house ( I love old homes) I begged hubby to stop so i could take a peep in the windows although there was a sign that said.. No Trespassing... I paid no heed as i just wanted to look and didn"t think the sign was really meant for I got out, hubby didn"t but he knew i would bug till i seen inside. I walked to the back and there on the back door was a big sign that said... " There is nothing in this house worth dieing for! "... I was out of there in a flash!,lol... Could have been worse, like a big dog or something,, i learned me lesson about being nosey! So, i guess i fit in with the "stupid" folk ,lol.... J.C.. There is more to a Man than just,, well, you know. Just be happy is all , all the other stuff goes away for all of us ,sooner or later..... I had a chance to be mean in the other room, but i was nice instead,, proud of me? ,lol,lol
Just Curious 3/19/2014 4:38:46 PM Report

Yes I am , Irish...LOL..Where's this other room that gurpy went to? I want to go and irritate her.....:)

So sad to see a long time business close. Checker Cab closed its doors this afternoon. Anyone hear what happened?
celeste5 3/19/2014 8:32:29 PM Report

Not too often we get a late post,
Try again in the morning.

I thought I heard Checker Cab was the bigger business,
Guess Union Cab will take over now.
celeste5 3/19/2014 8:53:26 PM Report

Oh, by the way Crasher14, Welcome.

It`s late for me, almost bedtime, LOL.
