Cowart's Common Room

Today is Friday, May 21, 2010.

The ground was white for a while yesterday afternoon. NO, it wasn't snow; it was hail. Some of the hail stones were about the size of peas; some, about the size of marbles. They came in the midst of a thunderstorm, so the ice didn't last very long. Of course, we've had several hot, humid days, so I suppose this hail was to be expected. I haven't noted much damage locally, so I think we're OK. But there may be some crop damage — I'll find out about that tomorrow.

When was the last time you had hail in your district? Do you remember how much?

Just about fell off my chair laughing at Faith's joke yesterday:
Customer: “Waiter – there is volcanic ash in my soup!!”
Waiter: “Yes sir, it’s a no-fly zone”.
Now that is creative use of language! LaughingLaughingRolling Eyes We just keep proving over and over again that the inhabitants of Cowart's Skool are a very clever bunch. Clever at so many things. Very Happy

Angel is heading towards major surgery. Big Purple Vibes for her, please.

English Breakfast tea this morning. We've got Irish Breakfast, and Scottish Breakfast, too (and will serve them in the next few days). But I don't have any Welsh Breakfast tea. Is there such a thing? Could somebody let me know about that? Diolch. In the biscuit tins, some "Nice" sugar cookies (Peak Freans). Sorry about store-bought; busy day yesterday.

Hope you have a grand day!

Tiggywinkle's Avatar Interesting about the Hail Stones, Bear.Palomina's friends in Brisbane run a company dealing specifically with car body repair from Hail damage all over the world.

My heart goes out to Angel, suffering so much pain. Please God the surgery will be a great success for her.

Loved Faiths joke. Went over to the Jokes forum and had a good laugh at some of the jokes.

Frances's Avatar Another tea that I like is Ceylon breakfast tea. It's a bit milder way to start the day.

Shw mae, bore da! y diolch, Rosie. (Bear, in his certifiable decrepitude, is trying to learn Welsh; it's a long story. Any assistance gratefully received.)

I also did find an American company (in California; where else? Rolling Eyes) that stocks Welsh Breakfast tea. Now I'm all set. Cool
