Icarus

Thank you all for the sympathetic responses.

Recusant

Lifelong in your case Icarus speaks of an exceptionally durable friendship. Such friends are a rare treasure. My condolence and sympathy for your deep loss.  :(

It's 4 pm Sunday afternoon and I'm drinking beer and listening to the Beatles, I'll have to get around to that Kinsks song eventually. 'Till now I didn't drink beer before 7pm but I'm making a policy change. Early morning is the time for paddling, I don't like paying those skin cancer skinners, too late, I know it's not a real solution John.  Beer drinking into the late hours isn't conducive. I can look out the window at the greenery, still black euc trunks.   

Asmodean

The Asmo is getting most viciously snowed in again. Coincidentally, He has to drive all over the region for work in the next couple of days.  >:(

In Asmo's grey lump,
wrath and dark clouds gather force.
Luxembourg trembles.

What did his lumpy grayness to do anger the Murphyic gods so?

He has failed to destroy Luxembourg again. :(

Quote from: Icarus on March 08, 2023, 02:35:52 AMThis afternoon, at exactly 6 Pm EST, my lifelong best friend, Jack Hoover,took his last breath. I was there in the room at the hospital where that took place. His demise was not unexpected as he had been ill of a an indeterminate malady for several months.

i am very sorry.


and how can you smile when your reasons for smiling are wrong?

What are you decorating, Tank? Can you just "supervise" the decorating?

That depends on who your decorating assistant is!  :evilgrin:  But do tell more.

We moved into this house in 1986. I replaced the worktops and floor in the kitchen about 15 years ago. But now the whole kitchen from floor to ceiling is being replaced. All cupboards and fittings etc. New cooker but all the other white good are the same. It's is a right mess and going to get worse up to Sunday night and things should get better from then on. The kitchen units are being delivered Friday morning and the joiner starts on Monday so we'll be sittings among the kitchen in our front over the weekend.  ;D

Good luck, Tank. It will be worth the inconvenience in the end.

Finished 95% of the painting. Old cooker collected by scrap man. Gas supply capped off. 75% of old kitchen units removed, broken down and taken to the tip. Remainder of units going today and then start on ripping up the old floor covering. Get some new electrical fittings ready for Friday.
