    So we finally got to 1900 in time! :dance: I wonder when we will hit 2000 ?




    It is lovely watching the birds they can amuse me for hours. Recently though (and I’ll spare you the details) we have had a couple of young casualties in the garden, nature can be harsh :( I suppose it explains why some birds have several broods a year.


    He usually appears mid-morning and has a stroll around as though he’s checking out his turf :lol: then he disappears. If we have late sun he often returns early evening to spend time on the patio. I have watched him watching the birds, but thats all he does, its as though he can’t be bothered to move.


    They must have tasted awful for you to still remember :eek:


    I wish this was true. According to my Mun (I don’t remember) I tasted many a creepy- crawly and was partial to soil. I think my Mum has me confused with one of my brothers :innocent:


    I imagine they look so pretty, I would love to see a photo if you get time.



    I will :gotcha:



    Its amazing how long the plant keeps on blooming, I especially like plants which hold memories like yours do. Our rose was already here when we bought the house.


    Hopefully, I just need to remember to keep feeding them :lol:

    Barely! I was getting worried. :eek:

    I wonder when we hit 2000 if all the computers will stop working? I'm sorry, Y2K reference. :fp:

    Do you think we can do it by July 1st? We'll have to remain chatty. [​IMG] I'm with you in whatever you decide.


    Awww! I hate it when young lives are lost. :( I've had bird nest near me, usually Starlings, that loose their babies and it can sadden me. Silly I guess, they're only birds, but something young dying reminds one how harsh nature can be. I hope you're okay. [​IMG]



    LOL! :lol: He seems like a real character. Does he often lay underneath your car?


    I was no more than a toddler but I can still remember that. Gross. :rolleyes:


    LOL, well it probably built-up your immune system.


    I shall. :D


    Roses seem to live forever if well cared for. I know my mum has tulips and other plants that have to be fifty years old, far older than I.

    May I ask what colour is your rose? I ask this to a lovely English Rose. :D


    You feed them, they'll feed you. :)

    We’ve not missed a goal yet, but this one was getting close :eck:


    Lol! .. I think we might explode in this thread.
    2000 is such a significant number. Have we really talked so much? :lmao:


    Lets do it! :jolly:



    We have a small patch in the garden where Mr L buries them, I don’t want to put them in the bin :(



    I am fine, thanks . :hugs: Thats the thing with any animal isn't it, they often have short lives compared to us.


    I’ve only caught him twice so far. I’m sure he thinks hes invisible when hes crouched under there :lol:


    Lesson learned, you didn't try it again :lmao:



    True. Snow, did you ever eat snow?


    This sounds like a strange question - do you know if your Mums roses have a strong scent? I love the smell of roses and ours only has a faint scent.


    Lol!..of course you may ask :D our rose bush is pink.


    Oh yes, good thinking! :yep:








    Happy June to all, it will soon be Christmas again :loon:

    As the saying goes, 'there's a first for everything' and that scares me. :eek:


    Well we're chatterboxes here. [​IMG]


    I'm always with you friend, do or die. :pals:



    That's so kind. I would do the same thing.


    You'd wish they'd live longer, especially pets. It's so hard when someone loses a beloved pet, especially young. :(



    That reminds me, when I was a teenager we had a white cat that slept under my mums car. The car would leak oil and the poor cat would have oil on his coat. :rolleyes:


    Of course. It was kinda meh. [​IMG]



    Yes, indeed! She has three. Tow have a strong scent while the third on with smaller blossoms isn't as strong. The are colored, pink, yellow, and red. She did have a white rose but I forgot it's fate.



    Oh wow! I'm assuming it blooms through autumn? Did you plant it when you moved in?


    Indeed, time sure flies by. :bump:

    Yep, we almost slipped up :giggle: I will be so excited when we next reach 2000 posts.



    The proof is here for all to see :lol: is there any subject we haven't covered yet?..Lol!


    You are a very loyal friend, I hope I don't ever lead you astray :D


    Very true. And right now our friendly cat has me worried because we haven't seen him for three days.



    Oh no, the poor cat .. maybe he liked having a new splodge design on his coat? o_O

    I remember eating snow too and you're right, no taste at all :D



    Lovely colours and I love the sweet scent of real roses.


    Yes, it blooms for quite a length of time. We didn't plant it. it was here already when we bought the house :) I have heard of people digging up rose plants when they move house to take with them. I always thought this was petty, but I guess they might have special memories associated with them.

    I still cant believe this hot weather apparently its been the hottest May here since records began :eck:

    For some reason I kept thinking it was Wednesday all day today, even though I knew it wasn't, am I making any sense? :crazyme:

    It will indeed be as milestone and 2500 as well since that will be a quarter of the way to 10,000. Maybe 2500 by the end of this year.


    Nuclear fusion, Pakistani politics, the history of the Indian Ocean, the later writings of Oscar Wilde, a review of Smokey and the Bandit 3, and the envelop industry are some topics that may be touched on in the next 8088 post.
    :crazyme:


    LOL, well I'm a SC addict and a Long Lashes Super Fan so I'm all astray as they come. :eek:



    Aww, I hope he shows up soon. Please keep us updated. He seems like such a character.


    The poor cat was quite the sight with brownish oil on his white coat. We had to wash him before he started to washing himself, fearing he's get sick from the oil. :fp:


    Do you cut a flew blossoms and take them indoors in a vase?


    Pfft, I would have dug up my roses if I had the space to plant them. I'm a petty person when it comes to roses. :p :jk: maybe.....

    Well I hope someone gives you a rose plant someday my friend. All English Roses deserve their own special rose. :)

    Oh no! It's winter to summer and back to winter. Why can't we just have spring and autumn all year long? I hope it's a cooler June for you. Excessive heat is no fun. :(

    Yes, that should be a good long term goal, to reach 2500 by 2019 :dance:

    So how many years will it take us to reach 10,000? :eek:


    I think you might leave me behind with these subjects ..Lol! I wouldn't mind chatting about the envelope industry, that could prove to be interesting :lol:

    Somehow I suspect we won't run out of things to chat about. One of us should go and drag some more members into this thread to help us out. I am nominating you Michelle :lmao:


    Me too. Except I'm a Michelle Stevens Super fan :D


    He's still not appeared. Mr L has a theory and thinks that his owners might have gone on vacation so the cat could be in the cattery.


    I assume the cat didn't appreciate being washed? that was thoughtful of you to do that, not everyone would consider it.


    Yes, when the bush has a lot of flowers I do, usually just one flower. I will have to take a photo next time I do and show you.


    Lol!..actually that sounds like a good idea :D


    Aw thank you Michelle :ch: I don't think anyone has ever bought me a plant before. I've had flowers, but then I've not shown much interest in the garden until last year. Father Christmas did get me a book on how to grow tomatoes - along with other things I hasten to add:lmao:

    Oh I would love that and then if felt in need of some hot sun then travelling to another country is always an option. I shouldn't grumble really, some years the sun forgets us here.


    I think you regularly get far more heat than we do, so it must be even more difficult for you.




    Thank you so much :D I suddenly got the urge for an overhaul . To be honest I'm still not sure about my new avatar, does it look like she is smoking a cigarette to you? thats all I keep seeing :lol:

    I'm still thinking it will take until about 2024 or so, at are current rate of posting. Hopefully we'll get more to join in to speed it up. :bump:



    Well I don't know much about any of them, just random things. :crazyme:

    What? I have few friends, you're the popular one. Oh 'Lashes! :fp:





    Aww! Thanks! :pals:



    I hope Mr L's theory is correct. :pray: LOL, cattery, now that is term we don't hear much of in the USA. I love our shared language.



    No it didn't. It's wasn't a fun experience washing the poor animal, but it was for it's own good.



    Oh, how kind. I look forward to that. :dance:

    Aww, we'll I hope you get more plants as gifts, especially a rose. You deserve it. :) Do you enjoy gardening now that you've started with the tomatoes and baskets?


    Good idea! :D


    Probably and it's can be annoying, the heat and humidity of summer. Yeah, I'd like to have a cottage in Scotland for the summer. Dreaming. :p



    I thought you were promoting cigarette smoking my friend, starting a new trend? [​IMG] One never knows what you'll come up with next. :lol:

    I do like it 'Lashes! You're always creative with your avatar choices. :)
