Saturday Funnies XXVIII

It is Saturday and time to laugh!  This came from my email chain gang.  It is an oldie but a goodie. Enjoy!And remember…..Mother’s Day is right around the corner……   A young man shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following him around.  If he stopped, she stopped.Furthermore she kept staring at him....more

Tunnel Vision

You know you have had a really bad day when you are strapped into an MRI tunnel and that is the best part of your day.  I pushed the worry of wearing eye shadow with metal flecks, becoming spontaneously claustrophobic, and enduring a very long needle inserting dye into my hip socket to the side and welcomed the chance to be in a loud dark tunnel where nobody could find me to bring their latest challenge to my attention, or tell me how I had come short of their expectations.  The loud noise was akin to a jack hammer breaking concrete, not too unlike the constant construction that t...more

Poor Sports

Kids today have the option of picking a sport, individual or team, learning it and playing it.  Gender doesn’t have a lot to do with the options anymore.  When I was a young, there was no such thing as organized team sports or individual competitions for girls.  We learned the rules of a few games in PE such as badminton, volleyball, and basketball, but outside of that 30 to 45 minute exposure there was nothing.  Soccer didn’t exist, baseball was a boy’s all-American pastime unless you could convince them to make room for you on the vacant neighborhood field and football...more

Playing in the Dirt

Where is Martha Stewart’s production crew when you need them?  I mean, really, I could be very happy playing in the garden or in the yard if I had a set-up team to make it easy and enjoyable.  The planting beds would be weed free; the soil turned, enhanced and tamped down; and I could breeze in donning really cute gardening gloves with a Smith & Hawkins designer spade.  I would dig perfect sized holes for all of my beautiful annuals, perennials, tubers, bulbs, and whatever else I had selected to transform the landscape.  The sprinkler system would be de-winterized an...more
