Cowart's Common Room

Hello Owls.!

Rather a busy day, work rounds, shopping, laundry and errands, will I ever get to relax on that hammock with a good book.....

Lovely to see Bill Oddie back on TV, watched his wonderful programme on wildlife last night.

Have just made a cuppa so just off to take a tour of the site, see you later owls.

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

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Camilla's Avatar Good Evening to the Bear.!

Hope you enjoyed your evening supper, some tasty dish?

Hoping too that all was well with that visit with your lovely grandchildren last evening and that Bear's poorly back is not too painful today.

Moi......... toothache, my own fault, should have made that visit to dentist a few weeks back, teeth, they can be a problem.!

Posted by: Camilla on 14th May 2010 at 01:32AM

Most peculiar evening, Camilla. So good to see you. Sorry about your dental distress.

Bear was holding forth, all alone, on "The Time Has Come . . ." post, when nobody else was around. I was fearful that I had wandered into some alternate universe. I'm glad I haven't.

I'm getting ready for Miss Sadie's "doggie manners" class, so I'm going to have to ask you to excuse me. My be back in a bit.

Yes, good time last night, and again today, with the grandchildren. They're called "grandchildren" because they're so grand (at least at this age). Very Happy

Camilla's Avatar Thank you Bear, have just left you a message on The Time Has Come post........... your wit is a true tonic for me tonight.

Oh Miss Sadie off to doggie manners class........ ah, let us know how all goes Bear. Pleased to hear you had a lovely evening with your Grandchildren last night, Grand children for a Grand Bear.!

Camilla's Avatar Hello Frances.!

Just going to post a card over on the Forums, back soon.

Hope your day went well Frances.?

Frances's Avatar Hello Camilla, and also to Bear, who will return soon, I do hope.

Just in from work, supper almost ready, server connection acting up, so just want to say I am here, and hope to be back in a jiffy. xo

Posted by: Frances on 14th May 2010 at 01:45AM

I suspect the doggie manners class will not go all that well.

Miss Sadie is much smarter than Bear in this regard. Sad

Frances's Avatar Hello back to you, Camilla. I am glad that you have had an active day ... I take that as a sign that the vertigo might have verti-gone.

Pretty weather in NYC today, still coolish, but warm enough to leave the wool jacket at home. The shop was sort of quiet, but we did have lots of good customers. Today's pace also allowed us to get caught up on various matters...always good.

One customer came in late in the afternoon saying that her bus ride from uptown had taken forever, reason being that some streets were shut off, because our President Obama was in town to congratulate the men who helped with that would-be bombing incident in Times Square a week ago. Glad to have the President in town for that, glad to have the men honored. Bus delay ... good cause, not a problem.

Frances's Avatar Hello's a deep question for you ... are manners' deployment dependent on the intelligence of the deployer? Oh, I do hope that is not true.

I think of manners, human, dog, (maybe not cat,) as a way of individuals being able to meander through the narrow channels that life presents us.

Tiggywinkle's Avatar Hi night owls, Just popped in before retiring. Extremely busy with garden, home improvements, B&B,and finishing some projects. Sunny, but still extremely cold. Muffin lost her first tooth last night, and went off to-day clasping it in a little box for the tooth Fairy. Little Poppet in Australia is 1 to-day. Wish I could cuddle her. Tigger stable at the moment, but a bit grumpy at times. Off to a Parish Fete on Saturday, probably to acquire some more "stuff" Planning to do a car boot sale with my sister to get rid of some other stuff. Thats all my news. Have a lovely weekend. Nightie night.

Sorry things were show in the shop; not good for the "bottom line," Frances. We hear some more men have been picked up by the police in relation to the bombing attempt. In Mass. of all places, not even a suburb of New York City.

Glad to see you on the perch Tiggy. Hope things get better for Tigger. Remember the snow we had a couple of weeks ago? Well, to-day we were 23C somewhere around 72-74 F. Should be the same for the next fortnight.

Bear and Miss Sadie are off to "doggie manners" class. Hope to see you tomorrow.

Sleep well, good Owls.

Posted by: Rob-bear on 14th May 2010 at 02:05AM

Frances's Avatar Tiggy, if you do not see this tonight, hoping that you will see it tomorrow.

Bet that Muffin will enjoy waking to her first Tooth Fairy experience.

You are obviously so busy. Don't forget to have a good rest when you can, to recharge those fabulous Tiggy batteries.


Posted by: Frances on 14th May 2010 at 02:18AM

Frances's Avatar Bear, I thank you for your wishes. I admit that when I get in late from the shop, I sort of leave the local news until later.

That prompts a question, can an owl be an ostrich-hybrid?

Within an hour I will definitely have the tv on and get the 11 pm nightly version of news updates ... police blotter, etc. It's better to have my pasta with you all!


Posted by: Frances on 14th May 2010 at 02:21AM

Camilla's Avatar Hello Frances, Bear and Tiggy, back now....... hope your server connection stays a while longer for you Frances. Good to hear pretty weather in NY, not so good here, quite cold but at least the rain held off.

Very good to hear your President took time out to congratulate those brave men re the bomb in Times Square Frances.

Thanks Frances, vertigo has gone, goodie.!


Posted by: Camilla on 14th May 2010 at 02:22AM

Camilla's Avatar Sounds like you are having a busy time Tiggy, ah, little Muffin has lost her first tooth. Remember when my children did, they always placed under their pillow at night for the tooth fairy, and that fairy always left them something too.!

Happy 1st Birthday to Poppet your granddaughter, I expect she will be getting some lovely presents from you and Tigger all the way to Oz land.

Pleased to hear Tigger is stable, enjoy the fete on Saturday Tiggy, let us know what gorgeous vintage you find.

Have a lovely weekend Tiggy, night night, and sweet dreams.


Posted by: Camilla on 14th May 2010 at 02:32AM

Camilla's Avatar You are having lovely warm weather in Canada Bear, wonderful, especially after having soo much snow there.

Look forward to hearing all about how Miss Sadie got on with her classes. Sleep Well.

Posted by: Camilla on 14th May 2010 at 02:36AM

Frances's Avatar Camilla... owl alert. It is almost 3 am! Please do close those beautiful eyes, and head off to the land of nod, where deep sleep will refresh all.

I'll be at out perch earlier tomorrow. xo

Camilla's Avatar Owl is an Ostrich Hybred.!

I did read that comment in The Times yeserday of Blair's deputy who said about Conservative-Liberal Coalition......his words... Con Dem Nation.

Wondering if that Summer Collection is going well Frances, having been looking for some new linen trousers, tried some of mine on and I have lost weight by two sizes. Those trousers will have to go off to seamstress failing that a charity shop.


Posted by: Camilla on 14th May 2010 at 02:44AM

Camilla's Avatar You can tell my eyes are nearly closing, my spelling above is awful.!Smile

Thank you Frances, I have work later today so off to get some sleep now. Look forward to seeing you on the perch tomorrow night dear Frances.

Nighty Night, and sweetest of dreams to you.

Nighty Night Owls.
