I often wonder if Willikins is based on someone named Wilkins . . .

We finally had our hearing with the tenancy board today. I really felt it went excellent!!!
We will get a judgement on October 15th.

I also have my 2nd interview for a job in Ottawa with my current employer. I'm nervous and excited at the prospect of going back home! But nothing is set in stone yet.

This was yesterday, but... my mother in law came out for a visit. We went out for lunch and a little shopping. I bought two dresses for $17!! :shock: :D

Nice day and a bargain, what else would you want.

I felt that the interview went well. They said that they would have an answer for me today, but I did not hear from them. I think they may not have been able to reach my current manager, before calling me back.

Good luck Con!

Still smiling after seeing these guys last night.

Couldn't think of a finer accolade to their performance than the comment from the guy sitting behind me. He said he's never seen a better tribute to Laurel and Hardy. Exceptionally good.
He turned out to be the curator of the Sons of the Desert, Laurel and Hardy Museum in Ulverscroft :clap: :clap: :clap:
It's a new show but i think it's going to be a huge hit. So glad I went.

At the museum in Ulverston towards the end of November, Dug! I'll let you know if any other bookings are made. There's talk of Ireland but I'm not at liberty to divulge anything further...... :shhh:
