Cowart's Common Room

Hello to all the owls,

Goodness that weekend went quick, hope you all had a lovely weekend despite the not so agreeable weather maybe.

Pouring bucket loads here, strong winds too, even so I did manage to take Daisy for her daily walkies, well wrapped up against the elements.

I am off to make a hot coffee, see you later.

If you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Frances's Avatar Sugar lumps, indeed! Just look at that beautiful painting.

Sorry about that rain Camilla. Still, be glad that you had the choice of how to spend those hours! I would have loved to be outside in a great landscape, even if soggy.

Lots of customers today at the shop, and the three of us present had to keep our skates on to keep everyone happy.

We switched our clocks back to standard time last night, so we are now back to our usual five hour delay.

The moon looks enormous tonight against a clear All Saints Day sky, yet tomorrow will be the official full moon.

Day off for me ... lots of errands on the schedule, even some shop stuff. Still, I will find some hours to find my alternative to taking a marvelously energetic dog on a long walk across a beautiful landscape. Gosh, having typed that, I now wonder what that alternative would be?

Camilla's Avatar Hello Frances.!

Thank you, I don't mind the rain, but Daisy loathes it, but she needs the exercise, me too.

Pleased to hear lots of customers buying Frances, I do know that you dear Frances and your team of sales assistants would have given those customers the very best service.

I am still getting used to the shorter days Frances re the clock, usually gets dark here now by 4.30pm.

No Moon here, but they do say if there is a full Moon one is to turn their money over, not sure where that expresssion came from.

Have a lovely day off tomorrow Frances, even if you have no dog, I can see that beautiful Central Park not far away to take that wonderful walk and perhaps even take the sketch book too.

I have PM you Frances.

Tiggywinkle's Avatar Hi Frances, Oh I could just cry. I have spent over 2 hours writing a new article on Holistic Health and it has disappeared, when I pressed submit. I just can't believe it. I was sure I was logged on, maybe I timed out. It is so disappointing. I suppose I should do it in word save, cut and paste. What a bummer.

Posted by: Tiggywinkle on 2nd Nov 2009 at 01:58AM

Frances's Avatar Oh Tiggy, what a pain ... holistic or not! I also have had quick and sudden surprises after lots of typing ... must have some errant little finger that somehow finds a way to erase all. Not sure which key that is!

(I never do my posts in word ... far too much a fan of the spontaneous ... let the fates take over state of mind.)

Grand to see you here. I am enjoying a tablespoon of NZ honey every day since reading your post.

Camilla's Avatar Hello Tiggy,

So sorry to hear about your post disappearing over in the forums. I typed a post a few months ago on forums and it just went whoosh...... trouble is I am not so good with technical things. I think when I previously typed mine Tiggy which was long, the time ran out, so probably good idea to save it.


Posted by: Camilla on 2nd Nov 2009 at 02:03AM

Camilla's Avatar Yes, me too Frances, I love the Honey, I ran out yesterday though and migraine set in today, must stock up on extra jars tomorrow. I love it on toast or croissants, good too with lemon.

Frances's Avatar Dear owls, I am so sorry, but I am going to have to log off now. Think that the change from daylight savings time is taking its toll. It just still seems later to me now.

Promise to have a good night's sleep, and be in full owl form tomorrow ... under that officially full moon. xo

Tiggywinkle's Avatar I'm off to bed. Abba has cheered me up, Camilla. Lemons are another of my superfoods, I'll be talking about. Must ask WW about timing out. Everything went wrong on me to-day. Was trying to finish the boys bean Bags, and started to have problems with the tension on my sewing machine. Dropped doing, that to do the article. Wonder if there is a full moon.
Frances, my affluent niece is going over to NY for Thanksgiving and shopping. She is staying in The Radisson 511 Lexington Ave on 48th. I'll send over a few little goodies with her for you to pick up. Nightie night Laughing

Tiggywinkle's Avatar Frances I knew it. Strange things happen to me when there is a full moon. Maybe I'm a lunatic!Rolling Eyes

Camilla's Avatar Let us hope that full Moon sends us better health for everyone.

Thank you Tiggy, I am not good with sewing, but hope you get to sort out those fab bean bags for the boys, still have my MIL old sewing machine from days gone by a SINGER.

Night night Tiggy, sweet dreams, see you tomorrow.

Camilla's Avatar I am just going to tend to Tiddles, will give her half-half milk, and not forgetting to put the Clock outside for his dose of moonglow, all done.!

Night Night Frances, sweet dreams, this little owl is off to bed too, just going to turn the lamps out, Daisy is ready with her teddie.

See you tomorrow.

Best wishes to the dear Bear.

Puffin's Avatar Yes,I think you do run out of time or something here at Coo,as I know the page starts to jump when you are sending a P.M.if it is too long and I have had one wipe out entirely.
I alo read something ""WW" had written and I posted below and she answered-well mine and her last just disapeared--
It can be very anoying.
At least if you hit a bad key on a E-mail you can userally retreive it.

Puffin's Avatar Sending sweet dreams to all-it is now 11P.M. old time ,so I am trying to go to bed by 10 or so as 5;15 a.m. comes all too fast and I am not a quick 'lights out' person.
Central Park is lovely and there are some good revival shows coming soon.
Hello to Bear too.

Posted by: Puffin on 2nd Nov 2009 at 03:13AM

The late Bear has checked in, found no other Owls, seen that the clock and Tiddles are in order, and is off to bed.

Sleep well, good owls.
