I Couldn’t Resist

A text to my brother this past Sunday: “Happy Easter! Doing anything to celebrate?” His response: “Same to you. I went for a bike ride and accidentally ran over a squirrel.” I couldn’t resist a reply: “I hope it wasn’t Rocky.” My sincere apologies to Dan Antion and The Editor (the kind squirrel feeders) and anyone who questions my wacky Bullwinkle sense of humor. This post has been brought to you by flying squirrels and Linda Hill’s One-Liner Wednesday. IfRead more

A Man Walks into a Bar…

“I like smart jokes, I like dumb jokes, and I like dumb jokes done smartly.” ~Mike Myers~ By the title of this post you may have thought that I was going to connect this post to Dan Antion’s usual Saturday SoCS-at-the-Bar post.

Why did the lifeguard not want to rescueRead more

One-Liner Lucy

You see, the work office is moving to a new building in January and that means plenty has to be done, from change of address notifications, updating employee information, ordering furniture, working withRead more

Thank You for Holding!

Mom’s right-ear hearing aid broke a couple of weeks ago. I’ve since been trying to get it fixed and waiting for the audiologist to call me. The hearing aid needs a battery cover/holder that has to be ordered. Mom is down to one hearing aid and I’m sure that she and those that take care of her are struggling to have pleasant conversations. Wednesday, as I was on the highway, headed home from a meeting, the phone rang. Unfortunately, I didn’tRead more

The Shiny Small Mammal Syndrome

Have you ever been distracted by… Hang on, my smart phone just beeped. Must be a Facebook update. Hmmm, the neighbor went camping, someone is not fond of the TSA, lots of dog and cat and Its-Monday-morning-and-I-need-coffee posts. Anyhow, Have you ever been… Excuse me, I forgot to look at today’s “Shame Your Pet” calendar page. Just a minute. “Hello, I’m a hole digging Jack-a** Russell!” Too funny! What was I saying? Oh yeah, have you ever been distracted byRead more
