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

Sunday Smile

Stunning Senior Moment

A self-important college freshman attending a recent football game took it
upon himself to explain to a senior citizen sitting next to him why it was
impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.

'You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one', the
student said, loud enough for many of those nearby to hear. 'The young
people of today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man
walking on the moon. Our space probes have visited Mars. We have nuclear
energy, ships and electric and hydrogen cars, cell phones , computers with
light-speed processing.. .and more.'

After a brief silence, the senior citizen responded as follows:

'You're right, son. We didn't have those things when we were young....... .so
we invented them. Now, you arrogant little shit, what are you doing for the
next generation?'

The applause was amazing..... ..

Cockles and mussels, alive alive o.........(dead, really)

Photo from S.I. Advance
This is the reason I didn't go walking (or anything else) on the beach yesterday.   Tens of thousands of mussels washed up on the beach over the weekend.  They say it stunk...I didn't get too near there so I don't know how bad it was.  But they were baking right there on the beach in 90 degree weather without the aid of a cook or slow boiling pots so I'm sure the smell was ripe!  Not only were there mussels, but there were flies and gnats and mosquitos (oh my), as a result.
The news claims it was a result  of hot weather and undercurrents (from Hurricane Bertha)

Happy Monkey Monday!

Happy Monkey Monday!

Do you notice what's missing?   No doodle today. Does that make you happy?  Well, I'll get to doing more in case you miss em.  Hehe.

I spent most of the weekend in my friend's pool.   Was oppressively hot here, as I'm sure it has been everywhere.  The great part of this don't have to get dressed for work and trudge into the city and sweat myself to death during the commute!  :-) 

I haven't been reading many blogs of late so I apologize if I haven't been to see you lately.  I'm just not on the computer much as of late.  But I'll be visiting soon.   So in the meantime, I wish you cool breezes, A/C and laughter!

Nude Runner

A woman was having a daytime affair while her husband was at work. One
rainy day she was in bed with her boyfriend when, to her horror, she heard her
husband's car pull into the driveway.
"Oh my God - Hurry! Grab your clothes and jump out the window. My
husband's home early!"
"I can't jump out the window. It's raining out there!"
"If my husband catches us in here, he'll kill us both!" she replied.
He's got a hot temper and a gun, so the rain is the least of your
So the boyfriend scoots out of bed, grabs his clothes and jumps out the
As he ran down the street in the pouring rain, he quickly discovered he
run right into the middle of the town's annual marathon, so he started
running along beside the others, about 300 of them.
Being naked, with his clothes tucked under his arm, he tried to blend in
best he could. After a little while a small group of runners who had been
watching him with some curiosity, jogged closer.

"Do you always run in the nude?" one asked.
"Oh yes!" he replied, gasping in air. "It feels so wonderfully free!"

Another runner moved a long side. "Do you always run carrying your clothes
with you under your arm?"
Oh, yes" our friend answered breathlessly. "That way I can get dressed right
at the end of the run and get in my car to go home!

Then a third runner cast his eyes a little lower and asked, "Do you always
wear a condom when you run?"

"Nope........just when it's raining."

My Doodled Pet

Doodle Pet


No Doodle Day

I don't have my doodle ready today.  I'll have to draw it and post it at a later date....I know, I know you were all looking forward to my work of art...and I'm sorry to disappoint you...ahahahaha.

Oh just so you know, the path of grief does not get better as time goes's different, but not better....I've learned that I'm still walking in the wilderness.....I don't know when I'll come out into the sunlight again.....but I do see glimpses of light......I've joined a Bereavement Support Group...and it's the best thing I've done so far.  I'm really working on myself but I do have my mini breakdowns still...I just never know when they'll hit.  I miss him terribly.   

One thing I haven't lost tho, is my sense of humor.....he would want it that way.  

I'm off to a pool party/bbq today.   It's going to be super hot.   So I'll probably stay in the pool all day.  Here's a test to keep you busy:

You love to dance to anything, and it's hard to stop once you start.

You love dancing in a crowd. And no matter how big the crowd, all eyes are usually on you.

You Are Barbeque Sauce

You are both skillful and competitive. You enjoy mastering hard tasks.

Happy Monkey Monday!

Happy Monkey Monday!

I need some sleep. 
 You know how dogs are supposed to be afraid of fireworks, and they get all sorts of nervous and quiet and hide?   Not Snotdog!  He thinks he can conquer the world when the fireworks start!  He thinks they're the enemy and he's out to get them.  He barks so much he loses his bark!  But that doesn't stop him!  Just when you think he's barked his lil snot head off,  and you're ready to fall into dreamland, more fireworks and more barking!  

So how was your weekend?

2 Joke Day


(2) The Republican Fisherman

A woman in a hot air balloon realizes she is lost. She lowers her altitude
and spots a man fishing from a boat below.
She shouts to him, 'Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I
would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am.'
The man consults his portable GPS and replies, 'You're in a hot air
balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet above sea
level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.0
9 minutes west longitude.

She rolls her eyes and says, 'You must be a Republican!'

'I am,' replies the man. 'How did you know?'

''Well,' answers the balloonist, 'everything you tell me is technically
correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm
still lost. Frankly, you're not much help to me.'

The man smiles and responds, 'You must be a Democrat.'

'I am,' replies the balloonist. 'How did you know?'

'Well,' says the man, 'You don't know where you are or where you're going.
You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You
made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and now you expect me to
solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we
met, but, somehow, now it's my fault.

Ruby Tuesday

The Teach sponsors Ruby Tuesday, where we post a picture of something red. The picture has to be one that you took. Here's mine for this week.

My boss has a car collection in his office. When I retired he gave me this one. It's not the red convertible that I wanted, but I appreciated it nonetheless. But I forgot what it Can anyone tell me what type of car and year it is?
