Ever had one of those days when you thought, it can only be better tomorrow?  Well Friday was one of those days.

I can't go into detail on some of the issues, but one issue I can talk about is Sears.  So I had to order a switch and a couple of blades, 25 minutes later, I had them ordered.  Do you know that I was calling the Philippines.  She kept calling my tractor an appliance??  And if she said "hold on one second," one more time I think I would have screamed..LOL

I then went grocery shopping and I didn't get to the store until around 11am and the store was so busy I couldn't concentrate.  I ended up buying Presidents Choice Cola, instead of the "real thing."  No doubt there will be some griping from the people who drink it!!  I don't drink pop as it makes me gassy.......I swear I could burp the alphabet after I have drank a can of pop.......too much info??  ;0)

When dh came home he put a temporary switch on the tractor so I can use it until the new one arrives.  He is such a love isn't he?

Took a photo of the flowers and pumpkins on the front porch.

 This is the view north west of the property.
Going to have a busy day on Saturday as the kids are coming over.

Understand completely. When it was the washer I had to talk to Sears in India. Very polite, but I couldn't handle another thirty-minute call for a part that just cost a few bucks. Maybe it's a plot!

Are those 'eating' pumkins?

We just put out a mound of composted material and capped it with a bag of potting mix and planted 12 butternut pumpkin seeds yesterday. Had to put a light protective mesh arrier around the mound 'cos Denny-the-Dog has a tendency to roll on the mound of compost LOL! PHEWWWWWW!

I always laugh when someone from "abroad" comes on the so called helpline and says they're called Brian or Michael. Are they heck as like!

Thanks for this. I loved Cissie and Ada. Nothing like them nowadays sadly. You really miss Les Dawson, he was an absolute hoot.

Know the feeling, every business phone in the UK is connected to India.
