    Thanks for the coffee and doughnuts!

    I couldn't help thinking that the author of that piece should have known that in Canada the word favourite has a "u" in it though ... :mrgreen:

    Apologies from me. This had quite slid past me. Happy Canada Day

    Happy 45th Homecoming Anniversary to my parents!
    We were all exhausted from moving them into their new (to them) house. Sitting on the lanai, we enjoyed the fireworks the neighbors were shooting off. We figured it was a pretty nice welcome to the neighborhood display. :wink:

    Have a perfect Fourth, southerly neighbours! :smiley:
  • RossweisseRossweisse Shipmate, Hell Host
    Bravi, Piglet and D!

    Excellent news, JJ.

    The Glorious Fourth is almost over... and it's... suddenly... quiet! Deo gratias!

    Today my congregation surprised me with a speech and the gift if a picture to mark my 10th anniversary as their minister. Totally bowled over (though almost feel as though I were leaving, somehow, which I'm not.)
  • RossweisseRossweisse Shipmate, Hell Host
    Brilliant, @Cathscats!
  • LothlorienLothlorien All Saints Host
    My sons and I miss my dad who died some years ago. Today he would have turned 102.
  • PriscillaPriscilla Shipmate
    Thank you to the Ship which introduced me to the Spooky Men's Chorale. We celebrated my birthday by going to their concert in Cardiff last night,
  • 10 years since my mother's death this day. The tree, planted from seed the spring following her death, fittingly is now about 10 feet tall. It's been a rather terrible decade since on the whole since re deaths, major injuries, crimes against loved ones, health problems involving eyes, bones, hearts, cancers.

    Sometimes it seems we go through nasty tunnels leading into darkness. It's about the same amount of time these 10 years that I've been thinking of retiring: I'm glad I haven't, it would be the destruction of one of the two remaining threads of continuity of life, the other more important one being marriage and our small family.
  • Today I turn 60. Seems faintly ridiculous somehow.
  • RossweisseRossweisse Shipmate, Hell Host
    It's better than the alternative. Happy birthday, Robert!
  • Nick TamenNick Tamen Shipmate
    Happy belated Birthday, Robert!!
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Belated happy returns, RA! You know 60 is the new 40, don't you? :smiley:
  • I don't beleeeeeve it! Nearly 5pm and no one on the Ship has mentioned today's Feast!.

    Altogether now, Hooray and up She rises, early in the morning :grin:

    I have a perfect excuse: in order to catch our homeward plane, we had to rise up very early in the morning* and didn't get home until well after midnight** Atlantic time today.

    I can safely say that the Assumption of the BVM was the last thing on my mind.

    * 4 a.m. British time, to be exact
    ** also 4 a.m. British time

    A little birdie* tells me that today is my fellow-host Lothlorien's birthday - many happy returns!

    Virtual CAKE on its way! :)

    * actually it was Facebook ...

    "...He's hardly ever sick at sea!
    Then give three cheers, and one cheer more,
    For the hardy Captain of the (Ship of Fools)!

  • It is 18 years since two 'planes were flown in the world trade centre towers, killing 2,996; AA flight 77 was crashed into the Pentagon, killing all on board and 125 in the building; and UA flight 93 ploughed into the ground in Pennsylvania, brought down by the actions of brave passengers aware of the earlier hijackings, killing all 44 on board.
