Good morning peevers.

I trust that you all had a good week and are in good spirit for the one to come.

Summer continues to be pretty good over here with only the odd downpour- indeed we could do with more rain at the moment.

I was at work today (Sunday as I type) and Mrs J had wanted to go and see a local garden that was open to the public under a National Garden Scheme.

However she ended up not going because she would have ended going on her own as most of her friends were on holiday (vacation) or tied up doing other things.

Have you ever wanted to do something but had no-one to do it with? (Actually I do a lot but that means that I can dictate the schedule.)

Some people don't like this so let's hear your take on things.

The (possible) peeve of the week is;

Having to do something by yourself.

Nah, I always go to whatever it is by myself but I am used to it and very much a loner anyway.
I wish she would have gone I am sure she would have enjoyed herself.

Here's one thing I usually end up doing by myself- the monthly breakfast car meet, this one with an American theme;

Not having someone to do things with, Jezer, you're playing my song! I love to ski, but I don't have anyone to go with. I'd also love to travel and see more of the world, but I'm married to someone who doesn't even want to go away for a weekend. The solution would be if I could find some friends to do these things with. But, as Mrs. J. has found out, you can't always rely on friends because they have their own lives.

[Edited to add] Oohh, nice cars!

Me too. That red 65 Mustang 2+2 Fastback looks almost exactly like one I used to own. Thanks for the memories and pics too.

Cooking, hate it, glad I have a great cook to do it.

Well, if you want it done right you usually have to do it yourself. So to reduce chances of a screw up it'd best to do it alone.
