Morning its Monday Monday

I nearly started singing then , I thought I was in for a quiet week other than a few appointments but one daughter had a major flood in her kitchen and the men are coming today to rip the floor up and remove the units to lay a new floor etc, she is a young widow and works so Dad will have to be there as from 0830 each day till Thursday/Friday at times I will have to leave them to it as other planned things like ECG etc to have done, oh well lets hope the crew are a smiley lot.

"Hey just because I was late you didn't need to give me the cold shoulder" said the Cannibal to his wife.

Ten things I have learnt about you all lovely people.

1. You are all reading this.

2. You are all human.

3. You can not say the letter P without parting your lips.

4. You just tried to say it.

6. Your can not lick your elbow (or can you)

7. You missed number 5.

8. You just checked to see if there is a number 5.

9. You smiled again as you are a fun loving lot.

10. Your now thinking oh come on Fred.

Right have a lovely day rain could be on its way for some of us.

Keep smiling xxx Fred :)

Hi Fred, you are a mind reader as well as a caring Dad.

Are you going to take a flask of coffee and refreshments with you when you go to your daughters as you can't use the kitchen?

Good luck with the appointments .

I love your early morning smiles Fred. Your daughter is so lucky to have you, you're such a good person. I hope the kitchen all goes to plan and best of luck with your appointments.

Oh dear Lyn you mean you have not had a cuppa yet, or did you boil water the old way on the stove. As my daughter Kate keeps telling me" it keeps you busy dad and stops you thinking of other things" and she is right. Looks like rain later here, keep giggling Lyn. xxx :) ;) Fred

Yep I boiled a saucepan on the hob Fred...I made a hot water bottle and got back into bed, lol. I've got no heating until my boiler part arrives. Oh joy! :-) xxx

You really know how to live it up, a cuppa, a hotty and a bed, bet yo got either the telly or the radio on as well. Sending hugs to help you keep warm lol xxx ;)

Lol....no telly in my room Fred and no radio. I'm making the most of this next hour, then I'm ringing my Mum to see how Dad is this morning, he's twisted his knee and may need a lift to the doctors. He could hardly walk yesterday, poor soul. xxx

Hope your dad is OK, not even a radio alarm, I agree with no TV as the bedroom is for bed not telly. You are a good daughter I know I would not be without my daughters and also my lovely Granddaughter Hannah who looks after her granddad and fights my corner when I am out numbered in a difference of opinion. She is 26 now but still my little love. xx :)

Hi Fred hope you get this as my posts have been going somewhere strange. You are a good and funny stick! Ecgs are not so bad, better than those rotten cts scans. Take care all love and smiles, love LeeLee. 😃

All present and correct LeeLee yes I think over the last few years I have had every type of scan and test that has been invented, but its been worth it as I am still here. xx Fred :)

How well you know us! Followed the above to the letter!

No such thing as a quiet life Fred when you have got a family! My girls think I'm invincible. Still, It I guess it keeps us on our toes. Hopefully the kitchen repairs won't take too long to install and you can get back to normal pdq.

Looks like we are all in for rain for a few days but it's still pleasant so far here in London. Hope all goes well with your tests Fred. Have a good day.

Oh dear Fred I did everything you said on your list! So sorry about your daughters flood - at least she has her old dad to help her out. Nasty grey rainy day here so guess it's the same where you are. Hope you have a good day anyway. x

Reply

When I called you 'old dad' it reminded me so much of my own father I was nearly in tears as he died 6 years ago. I know there is only 17 years between us Fred but would you be my surrogate dad please? I would take it as an honour if you would. xx

A missionary was captured by cannibals. They put him in a cooking pot and lit a fire underneath. Suddenly the poor missionary started laughing.

"What you laughing at?" said the cannibal.

"I just pooped in your gravy" came the reply.
