Plapman's Philosophy On life and More Chatter

Today will start mainly sunny but we'll see increasing cloudiness in the afternoon as the high climbs, to just the freezing point, 0C(32F). Tonight will be mainly cloudy with a 60% chance of flurries in the evening and after midnight. Driving will become hazardous due to a risk of freezing rain late in the evening and after midnight The overnight low will be -2C(28F).
================================================= ==
With forecasts like this I don't mind having to sit in the passenger's seat where I can close my eyes, maybe even have a nap, while the Queen has to fight the hazardous road conditions. I remember when I had a license to drive it was always my duty to take the family out for necessities and bring them home safely. Looking at life in the whole even the bad things that happen can have advantages.
Enough with thePlapman's philosophy on life lets get back to the day to day happenings on the prairie.
Yesterday the SIL was back to install the baseboards and door trim. with just a few small finishing touches my washroom will be complete. I'm going to double the toll for other family members to use it. :) The SIL has done an excellent job. With the SIL being a great father, a real handyman and having almost completed his apprenticeship as a diesel mechanic I believe the daughter made an excellent choice when choosing the man to father her children. Yuk the Plapman jut goes on and on.
Yesterday, after the Queen was off to work Abbey took me on our daily walk. She decided to take the downtown route so that I wouldn't be slipping and sliding on the slippery roads. Today I'll take control and take her out on the gopher trails and show her that the furry little critters she loves to chase have probably all gone for their winter siesta. I think they have the right idea. The poor birds choose to fly hundreds of miles south, like many Canadians, while the gophers just snuggle up in their warm burrow and sleep the cold Canadian winter away.
That darn Bill Gates, not only does he only give you rights to use his software and never own it he now wants to control my computer. I had most of my gibberish typed in earlier when he said " I've just installed an update now I'm going to reboot your computer" and everything I'd done was gone. I should charge him for the use of my computer and if he doesn't pay change the update setting so that I decide when an update can be installed. I currently have my updates set on automatic but I may change the setting to just download, inform me that updates are available and I'll decide when it's convenient for me to install them. I always keep all my apps updated as most updates repair errors made by the programmers. My anti-virus and firewall apps check for updates daily. I don't want any previously unknown bugs crawling around inside of my computer.
As for Alley's comment on me forgetting her birthday I din't forget, I thought that she like the Queen didn't want to be reminded of birthdays. I think it's because with the pasing years the little white lie just keeps getting bigger and bigger. :)
LOL And the Queen thinks it's great that she can't get a word inedgewise as I just chatter on and on.

Hi Tony, Windows 7 "ususally" tells you in advance when it's going to reboot your computer with a ten minute countdown. You have the option to tell it to ask later. Having said that, anything goes with Windows, sometimes, lol!

Good Morning Tony!

Glad to hear that life in La Prairie appears to be back to normal right now, and that you continue with your daily jaunts and highjinks with Abbey in tow. You're lucky to have the helpful hands of such a caring and competent son-in-law. Your downstairs remodeled bathroom should qualify for a lovely pictorial and lengthy article in Better Homes and Gardens by now! LOL!

Sorry I haven't responded to or been on the blogs much of late. There's a lot of sad family issues going on with my hubby's ailing elderly mother and a close family member on my side. We have to take things day by day, but it can be emotionally exhausting.

Your excuse for missing Alley's birthday yesterday is a hoot!! Nevertheless, like Alley, I also feel it important to celebrate every birthday that comes along as a celebration of life. I, too, lost both my parents to heart disease and cancer by the age of 25, as well as, many other close relatives (soon thereafter) who died way before their time. I feel lucky, thus far, that I've beaten the odds of my familial medical history. Hope it continues, as my disabled hubby needs me around to oversee things.

I see your temps have taken quite a dip since I last posted. Thankfully, we've been experiencing an unusual, but lovely, warming trend this week! We'll be experiencing a much chillier weekend, but I heard on the news that the warmth could return to us early next week! I say, "KEEP IT COMING!!!" LOL! I just love reducing those heating bills!!

Have a great day, continue to take care and bundle up warmly while walking Abbey! It's getting nippy up there!

And here's another greeting from Texas, where bi-partisanship continues to flourish thanks to our Governor GoodHair! Poor Rick Perry - I've done what he did, only without any real stakes and with no tv cameras. I've got sympathy for him as a person, but as a candidate... well, you just have to do better.

I can't believe there's snow on the ground already. I KNOW it's out there - I've heard. It's just that it seems to early. On the other hand, we're nearly to mid-November. Maybe I'm late!

Enjoy your walk - we love your chatter!

Good Morning from the Great State of Texas where our
Governor while running for president continues to be a blessing from heaven to stand-up comics.

Hope all is well on the prairie.

First...heee heee heee

Tony, I am one of these women who embrace her birthdays after seeing so much death of young folks in my family with cancer. If ever they find that it is a genetic inheritance, then I will be vindicated. I lost both parents, maternal grandmother to cancer, many aunts and uncles on both sides of the family and cousins. My sister had a hysterectomy because of precancerous cells. So far I am the only one who has not been cursed with it. Mom died at age 47 and dad passed at age 68. So now I embrace each year on that day of my birth. It was my decision to go into medicine after my mom passed. I had been a business manager prior.

Anyway enough of my ramblings. You enjoy your day.
