Wow Phil !

Its all there right enough. Like a slow moving  movie reel on a day and night in a couples life..

Shouting ! We all do that at somestage in life. No ones hears whats being said  though,
the words and meaning get lost in the vocal noise..

In saying that, I lived with stonewall stubborn bold child silence for years. Now, I have silence by choice
and i love every minute of it.

Well done as always

Old Doll.

This is so wonderful jets.

Its the silent scream from everyone here also. We have the highest dole/ out of work people
in the history of this wee nation.

Its shocking in more ways then one. Shocking for me when i see a foreign national spending a goverment food voucher on 3 bottles of Listermint mouthwash !! 3 euros 50 a bottle { probably about 5 dollars  a bottle} FOOD VOUCHERS SHOULD BE JUST USED FOR Food.. Whose fooling who in this econmy.
I know i sound mean and unchristian, but, i strongly resent my taxes being spent in a haphazard way like this. I also strongly resent the amount of euro collected on social welfare and immediately being sent abroad by Western Union ! If your poor you cannot afford to do this.. Its a blatant abuse of the system and our # hole politicians are allowing this... No wonder were back now to our people immigrating.

Lost pensions for all who worked so hard { me included } over so many years. Im a lucky
one as i own my own home, am my own boss { even thought the work is drying up big time }.
People cant eat flowers ! I can adjust to other work ive qualified  at over the years.
It keeps me warm and fed..
Heaven help the people with young families, you can sense there absolute hopelessness.
Joblessness is not just a statistic; it is a human tale of personal struggle and social devastation right across the board.
My apologies jets for being long winded, Your song is strong, as is my belief  in good honest people who wish to work to earn there living.
Blessings on you and yours..
I wil tomorrow do something here, for you jets to have a job soon..Its a wee cermony/ ritual  for work to come your way..

Hi Daddy,

Yes, the sunshine helps to bring out the best in everyone.

We didnt do to badly here. It was mainly dry and sunny OR at least warm..

Love the sun i do, so made the most of every chance i got this year.

Heatings on here this evening, winters slowly drifting in.. I like the changing seasons.

They all bring some form of joy with them... More booktime for me i guess, snuggled up.

When work allows that is lol.

Be well and stay cool.

I agree it doesn't take to much brains to be on FaceCráic.

It is good to keep in touch with family and friends  you dont see much of..

We as a large clan have fun posting old photos to one another and having the banter about them.. Other then that its boring, boring .

I go when i have  emails to answer there. Who wants to know what you ate for breakfast ! or that you need barbed wire for a farm that doesnt exist. I ask Ya !!

There are a few interesting post and people on there.. But very few and far between.

I also had a swivel chair. A terrific old one from my office years ago.

Comfy it was for me for both Pc and Guitar... My son bought a house last year.. He loves fly tying.

Imagine i never seen that chair head out my door with him when he was leaving !

" Aah Ma " he said when i asked " My ass is much bigger then yours, "I'll get you a smaller one"
