I'm not here any more :(

BBL and again and again until the great THEY get it right. This is a valuable site.

Miss you all, and am absolutely including y'all. :heart: Which is a particular welcoming and major part of Americas way of saying please visit us again and we love you. :thumbsup: Can't do it with the Aussie accent but whatever? Could speak French? :lol:

I am not a WC addict? :angel:

Have to say, still seems flaky to me, I got a Database Build Error message today.

To all Washers have a good day, hope the site settles down, and thanks for the saucy postcard Doug. Who knows where it is now?

Leslie and Doug. You would have loved this morning here. Our bed AKA mattress is rubbish, for the last few years and backache and whinging on wakening. Well that happens anyway old ways.

Last week I gave into temptation of Internet shopping, as one does, otherwise there's no point in temptation . Also two years nagging had produced no bounty in the cause of willingness for proper shopping with a purpose. In an actual store.

I bought a Queen size packaged decompressed innerspring mattress with free delivery for a song. Song became Metallica as we dragged the package upstairs with its wheels and torn out handle up difficult stairs with me leading, Roger pushing and saying when I screamed, MOVE your foot ..... Bo fled in green eyed terror. We had watched the video of the careful elegant demos prior to this.

Nothing so elegant here. I nicked the inner Baggie despite copying the eloquant scissors cuts of the movie, as an aside.... I STILL believe it was pre nicked :rolleyes: , and it started expanding and as was only half freed, Roger yelled as it kept growing in exponential amounts ... Stand back!!! Well, the queen size mattress expanded at speed, Bo fled and we didn't find him until this evening. It was truly SO much fun.

The mattress seems a good innerspring jobbie. Our last was quantum leaps in costs and unreliability this so if it lasts five years... whatever. Bo has ventured back in after being witness to the explosion of his place. He is now first trier of the mattress. Much better support for dreams.:thumbsup:

My gosh, technology is wonderful :lol:

Good Morning all,
It is almost 5:00 a.m. on a chilly morning here in Oakwood. I've actually dragged my sweater out of the closet. It definitely feels like Fall here, BUT we know summer is returning next week, so I'm enjoying the cool weather while I can.

I want to paint a Thank You card for the lovely young woman who did so much good for my aching knee. She was my PT guru and led me through an hour's worth of exercises with humor and knowledge each time we went. Sooo, in case they have to take the site down for further work, I went through the RIL this morning and pulled a couple of photos for references. ;)

Annie, I'm sure it wasn't much fun at the time, but the image of your mattress expanding as you pulled it up the stairs was priceless. Glad you (and the cats) now have it in place and are enjoying a comfortable sleep. A firm mattress makes such a difference to how we sleep and how we feel when we get up.

Doug, :crossfingers: you get to go to the Flower Show today.

:wave: to all who are still on their way. Missed hearing about everyone's day(s) while the site was down.

Syl and Doug, we still have o get rid of the old mattress ..... Leaning on the upstairs hardly used balcony at present. Flop it down over the roof, drag into Rogers Ute and to the dump we shall go.

Sylvia it was actually really really good fun.

Roger disbelieved the hype and the adverts about the mattress and thought I was a sucker. Ok rain on my parade ...:lol:

I did too ... Hence the repeated viewings of the video. Empowerment. :cool: NOT when a queen sized mattress materialises just there.

I just couldn't believe how fast the flat round packet expanded. As Bo fled, mentally injured and practising his RSPCA call for help for psychological trauma ... Should he ever know numbers and the opposable .. thumb ... I just had to laugh.

I think felines study us,:thumbsup:

It was pretty good and funny. Old mattress will be tossed off the roof and gently
flown o the landfill bin at the dump

I have more photos to share but not in the share bin, where my first posts were placed.

Daily wash for Fri Aug 16, 2013

I'll try this again as my first post seemed to end up in something called "the greenies room" in florals and botanicals. A quick hi and bye as I don't know what will happen to this.

:wave: :wave:

My first post also has vanished.....BBL for a look around :)

Wonderful images, Annie....:lol: My memory foam mattress did something similar, but nothing as dramatic as yours.

(((((to all in need))))))

Good Day All,

Annie, I took an electric saw to my foam mattress and carried it to the junk in pieces. Much easier.

A beautiful sunny day here. Just a trip into town to the bank and I'll be working on the grounds.

Have a good day,
Hope we stabilize.

Hi everyone. If I remember my acronyms, posting still seems a snafu.

08-16-2013, 01:06 PM
Yes absolutely Karl. We have been asked not to post until they get the site mended.
