The TVM goes thread-diving...

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Red-handed and masked. Although walking into a bank wearing a mask and gloves will no longer cause the bank to call the cops.

Tooks, how are you holding up? It seems unfair that on top of a devastating personal loss there is all this paperwork.
Impressive. Every word in that sentence was wrong.

Tooks, I'm so sorry to read this. I hope you're doing OK. But my heart also goes out to you being executor; I am, for our friend who died almost 2 years ago and everything's still going on (more details in Middle-Aged Crazy Guild). It's not an easy task.

Blessings to you. :rose:

I am doing okay. Thankfully there is not tons of paperwork. A lot of waiting for it maybe. :P

My mom prepaid her cremation. She wanted her ashes (and the ashes of her last 2 dogs) spread out up in the mountains somewhere, so that can happen anytime.
Her estate is not complicated. She owed no money. Hopefully this can be completed in a month or 2.

Happy Voting day....it's wednesday here and no winner yet. :wink: Your electoral college voting thingy still makes my head hurt. I tried to explain it to my mum. Best I could do was tell her how many votes each state had.
Maybe you should think about making voting compulsary then no one could/should complain about the outcome if they didn't vote? But hey, we've always had to vote, so what do I know.

They went to the firehouse to vote but got sidetracked by the perogies and donuts for sale.

I found them curled up in a broom closet in a food coma the next morning.

LOL.

It is pretty much stay-at-home season for me, unless I take the mutt for a walk. And around here we got waaaaaaaay more covid than anything like riots. :P

I wish I lived in New Zealand right about now. COVID cases are surging all over the place again, it seems. At least we've now started seeing progress on several vaccines being developed - the latest one, funnily enough, was largely funded by Dolly Parton!

Thanks, Thor'n. :)

I'm still going to be sending cards out to all you that I have addresses for. Guess I'd better get hopping on that. :shock:

At least we can have a virtual group hug.... :grouphug:

I've sent a few cards about 3 weeks ago as the Post Office warned they could take up to 2 months. Tooks, I do't think any spider eggs would last that long...just sayin' ;)

Also I saw a baby sized huntsman scurry across my garage floor a few days ago. I have since set off an insect bomb to make them move out...next garage along would be fine. They don't use theirs. I'm not yielding my garage to the creepy things any more. The side effect of bombing the garage which is half under my flat, is a smallish spider took up residnece on my ceiling. He too has been dispatched. No more spiders, I mean it!!! :Q

nl----I don't blame you. I dispatch every spider I see in my house too. If they stay outside where they belong, I don't bother them. They come in my house, they die.

Tooks----Hope you're doing OK. Thanks for the reminder about the cards. I should get mine out, too.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate. Don't eat too much. :P :D
