Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain!

Starting My Day

I love how the world feels...
On my early morning walks.
Birds say hello
While the world sleeps..
On my early morning walks.

Moist grass tickles my toes..
The moon smiles..
On my early morning walks.

Street lights wink at me...
Newspapers fly out of cars..
On my early morning walks.

My coffee is waiting,
The aroma at the door
After my early morning walks.

Ready to face the day now..
Quiet time has ended...
Thank you for my early morning walks.

Joke Time

Dusty Underwear

One evening a husband, thinking he was being funny, said to his wife; Perhaps we should start washing your clothes in Slim Fast. Maybe it would take a few inches off of your butt!!' His wife was not amused, and decided that she simply couldn't let such a comment go unrewarded. The next morning the husband took a pair of underwear out of his drawer. 'What the Hell is this??' he said to himself as a little 'dust' cloud appeared when he shook them out. 'April,' he hollered into the bathroom, 'Why did you put talcum powder in my underwear?' She replied with a snicker... 'It's not talcum powder..... It's 'Miracle Grow'.'

Stop eluding me!!!
You teased me once and I loved it.
I want to feel that chill,
It's like my drug.

Stop making me sweat!
That's all over now, go away.
I want to feel the breezes,
Come throught my window.

Fall, Fall, where did you go?
Come back to me.
I'm begging you....
Please???? I need you!

Never Forget



This sign was prominently displayed in the window of a business in Philadelphia . You are probably outraged at the thought of such an inflammatory statement.However, We are a society which holds Freedom of Speech as perhaps our greatest liberty. And after all, it is just a sign.You may ask what kind of business would dare post such a sign.

Answer: A Funeral Home

(Who said morticians had no sense of humor?)

You gotta love it!!! God Bless America

I Need Food Now

Emerging from the covers that surrounded her
She peeks out at the world again.
Seeing, feeling, knowing that it's gone now.

She's kicked this monster's ass for good now,
She knows that now (we think).
She happy dances like there's no tomorrow.

Dogs and Belly Buttons

Do dogs have belly buttons and if the dog gets shaved should they get them pierced?

No, this is not a delusion I had when my fever was 103, it was a subject of an actual conversation I had with a "friend". It started out by her telling me that she was getting her dog shaved. I pictured the poor thing bald and thought maybe he should have some piercings to go with his hairless look, so to be more "in" and stuff. This led to the question of dogs having belly buttons at all. When you think about it, they should, shouldn't they? But when I looked at little Snot dog's belly, no belly button there. But they do have them! They apparently stitch up the umbilical cord "button hole" on dogs right after they're born and if you look close enough you can see a little scar there. (I wonder why they don't do that on humans. Wouldn't we all look better?)

Perhaps a tatoo then!

Dogs Versus Cats

7 am - Oh boy! A walk! My favorite!
8 am - Oh boy! Dog food! My favorite!
9 am - Oh boy! The kids! My favorite!
Noon - Oh boy! The yard! My favorite!
2 pm - Oh boy! A car ride! My favorite!
3 pm - Oh boy! The kids! My favorite!
4 pm - Oh boy! Playing ball! My favorite!
6 pm - Oh boy! Welcome home Mum! My favorite!
7 pm - Oh boy! Welcome home Dad! My favorite!
8 pm - Oh boy! Dog food! My favorite!
9 pm - Oh boy! Tummy rubs on the couch! My favorite!
11pm - Oh boy! Sleeping in my people's bed! My favorite!

Day 483 of my captivity...
My captors continued to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects.
They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry cereal.
The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the mild satisfaction that I get from clawing their furniture.
Tomorrow I will eat another houseplant.
Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet while they were walking almost succeeded - must try this at the top of the stairs.
In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors, I once again induced myself to vomit on their favorite chair. I must remember to try this on their bed.
Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body in an attempt to make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to strike fear in their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good little cat I was. Hmmm, that did not work according to plan...
There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was placed in solitary throughout the event. However, I could hear the noise and smell the food. More importantly, I overheard that my confinement was due to my powers of inducing "allergies." I must learn what this is and how I may use it to my advantage.
I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and maybe snitches. The dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to return. He is obviously a half-wit.
The bird, on the other hand, has got to be an informant and speaks with them regularly. I am certain he reports my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal room, his safety is assured.
But I have patience, I can wait

Thursday Thoughts

Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.-Carl Bard

I saw that quote yesterday in a one of the newspapers here and it caught my attention. It's not a new concept to me at all... after all I try to start each day as if it's a new beginning. But I needed that reminder, especially this past week. 9/11 tore my essence apart, as I'm sure it did to everyone in this country. It seemed my life was torn in pieces and even though it's put back together, the pieces are not in the same place as they were before. I looked at life in a completely new way from that point on. I made lots of changes because in order to move on they became necessary. Some were good, some not so good. I started over and am trying to make a brand new ending. I don't know what that will be. The new road I've embarked upon is scarey, yet exciting at the same time. I just put one foot in front of the other and go forward. The journey has been a hard one but I'm still moving and enjoying the scenery, which is a good feeling.

I have no idea what I'm trying to convey here but it's what came out of me today. I guess what I'm saying is that I don't want to get stuck in the past, but at the same time I can't forget it. I just can't let it rule my life. So,I greet one day at a time,(ODAT) and make the best I can out of it!
Thanks for listening. :-)

Happy Monkey Monday.

Happy Monkey Monday!

Start the week laughing!

I thought the following would be appropriate for Monkey Monday:

My New Lincoln

I bought a new Lincoln MKX and returned to the dealer the next day because I couldn't get the radio to work. The salesman explained that the radio was voice activated.
"Nelson," the salesman said to the radio. The Radio replied, "Ricky or Willie?" "Willie!" he continued and "On The Road Again" came from the speakers. Then he said, "Ray Charles!", and in an instant "Georgia On My Mind" replaced Willie Nelson.

I drove away happy, and for the next few days, every time I'd say, "Beethoven," I'd get beautiful classical music, and if I said, "Beatles," I'd get one of their awesome songs.
Yesterday, a couple ran a red light and nearly creamed my new car, but I swerved in time to avoid them. I yelled, "Ass Holes!" Immediately the French National Anthem began to play, sung by Jane Fonda and Barbara Streisand, backed up by Michael Moore and The Dixie Chicks, with John Kerry on guitar, Al Gore on drums, Dan Rather on harmonica, Nancy Pelosi on tambourine, Harry Reid on spoons, Bill Clinton on sax and Ted Kennedy on scotch.
Damn , I LOVE this car!

Moon Beams Make Me Smile and I Don't Know Why

Moon beams shine through my window

In the slit of the shade there

Shines into my closed eyes,

Bathing me with it's soothing rays.

I go back to sleep, smiling.

Dogs and underwear

Doing a happy dance cause I'm off from work today!!! Here's some things to keep you busy from dogs to underwear! Who could ask for more! :-) Have a great day!

You Are a Boston Terrier Puppy

Aggressive, wild, and rambunctious.
Deep down, you're just a cuddle monster.

What Your Underwear Says About You

You enjoy wearing nice underwear, even if it comes at a hefty price tag.

You're comfortable in your own skin - and don't care to impress anyone.

So Long Summer

Anticipating the cool nights of Fall
When chilly nights wrap around our bodies
And force us to use blankets
And open windows.

Seeing summer slip away once again,
Tucking in the early morning sun
Until a later hour.
But the windows are open!

Allowing the new season
To wash over us
Clearing the cobwebs of heat,
So long Summer,
Thank you Fall.

Free Hugs and some puns

Hugs to sweet Patti for thinking kindly enough of this blog to award it the:

And free hugs to Mike for being so nice too for giving me this:

Both of them are stars and nice too!!! It's a pleasure to have such great blog buddies....Thank you both! ;-)

And to leave you laughing, some puns to ponder:

- Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other: "Does this taste funny to you?"

- A dyslexic man walks into a bra.

- I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn't find any.

- Two antennas met on a roof, fell in love and got married. The ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was excellent.
