Tonight I had dream where we all met to your home, Merry. I saw Tom and Mim, and feel your presence too, merry, like Pippa's and others, but didn't saw you. We had a meeting here, but parallel for this, there was something party yet where was your family I think, merry. So it was like two parties. Such a wonderful dream, I think it was and so real! :bighug :heart

Oh Fossy!! 😍 What a lovely dream!! Gosh, I wish it was real. We would all have such a blast over at Merry's house! 🤣 I can see us sitting in the back garden, having tea, chatting about John and Margaret. 🥰

When I go to "Traffic Stats" then "Story Stats" I get an error message. Last year it took them weeks to fix the problem and go back and repopulate the data. When I looked it up last year I found that it seems to be a chronic problem every new years.

I love this, Fossy!!! Imagine - Miller Party at merry's! we would show N&S on loop and have a Dinner where we would all discuss the rights and wrong of strikes, for two minutes, and then 'John looks good in a....' for the rest of the time.

Tom would serenade us with the Hippo Polka and various trad Austrian yodelling songs on his accordion, and Fozzy would hold a zumba class in the garden.

You will be dancing atop Tom's piano as he plays, Pipkin!

Hmmm Pips, never too late :)

Fossy has started something with this dream thing !!- I dreamed again last night we were having a Millers' party at my house - mimosa was there with her family - having a nice chat with Mim, I looked over to find Mr Mim tuning our piano !! I was delighted, because we've been unable to get a piano tuner in years - the last but one turned out to be a paedophile who was arrested soon after, and the one after that was crap.

Unfortunately when I woke up, our piano is still resolutely playing half a tone down, so I guess Mr Mim got interrupted before he got the job done :lol

oh my word, merry!! That's hysterical. I bet my husband would love to be able to tune a piano...and he'd probably help you if he could.

Boy, you and Fossy having tandem dreams there....what a hoot. The Mill is in our blood, man.

Yes, the Mill is like the Hotel California, you can check out any time you like but you can never leave... heheheheheh!!! :twisted:

I got my Audubon clock!!! I had to have one after I read about it in Pippy's NYE story! it made me laugh so much when they had the conversation about it - "Is it going to do that all night?" :rofl

Mine is an English version and has English birds singing. It sings from 5 am till 10 pm. I have it in the bedroom with me so I'll report back on how the 5am birdcall goes..... :rolleyes

I really cannot tell you how incredibly happy this makes me. I can't believe you bought Maggie's eccentric clock 🤣🤣🤣 and I adore you for it. I suppose the one in her office ought not go off during the night but 🤷🏻‍♀️ oh well.

Thank you for warming my heart with this!! Lots of hugs xxxx

I grew up with a bird clock. My parents are on their second one already.

We have a clock that sings a tune every hour as well, and it is so non-descript that it unnerves anyone who is over and hears it, those who don't know about it. We got money for our wedding, and that's what we spent it on.
