It's Crying Time

It's time to 'fess up...

What movies made you cry?

I'll tell you, if you'll tell me.

Hokey Pokey Monday

I Was Addicted To The Hokey Pokey, But I Turned Myself About

Monday is just too early for the Hokey Pokey...

It's Here: First Local Chikungunya Cases in Florida

It brings horrible pain, as though your bones are being crushed, but at least it doesn't kill you.

You only wish you were dead.

Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... a very macabre cat sighting... Orvillecopter? Orvilledrone?

Cats Away! Artist Turns His Dead Pet Into A Flying Helicopter


Can you say shameless self-promotion?


Have a happy Friday despite all the sickos in the world.

No Food For You

French Tell Moslems To Sack Lunch It On Pork Days Or Go Hungry

Yeah, baby! Go hungry!

We could use some of that attitude here in the USA.

Don't they read the news?

Hopatcong Serpent

Enormous Boa Constrictor On The Loose In Lake Hopatcong

Boa constrictor?

Perhaps an anaconda would be more likely...

Or Cecil the seasick sea serpent.

Illegal Immigration Prez

'I'm On Your Side, Man!': Obama Meets With Hispanic Hecklers Who Interrupted Texas Economic Speech With Immigration Complaints


What about being on OUR side for once.

Or is that too much to ask from an American president...

Florida Sign

Florida Road Construction Sign Hacked To Show Vulgar Message

Why am I not surprised that this happened in my county?

*forehead smack*

Florida is one crazy place to live.

Cautionary Tale

Man Dies In Custer Hot Dog Eating Contest

This is so sad. I can't help thinking that the Heimlich Maneuver would've been more effective in this case than CPR.

No Win For You

Study: World Cup Teams That Forbade Players From Sex Didn’t Advance Past Round of 16

I always thought this notion was ridiculous. I think people do better at anything when they're happy.

OK, I'll drop the subject now.

Independence Day

I know it's Friday, but it feels like a weekend day. My husband went golfing early, so I got to sleep in, something I don't often do. My girls will be around and there will be some fine meat to be grilled later on in the day and some celebratory fireworks.

On our nation's birthday, I want to thank those courageous men and women dedicated to preserving the freedom we enjoy everyday.

Happy Independence Day!

Oldsmobilius Prime?

Man builds a 23-foot high transformer out of an old Oldsmobile Alero.

What will the Homeowners Association say about that?

Diamond Dog

I'm not making this up...

Diamond Dog Returns Wedding Ring

I have my own wedding ring story, but this one takes the cake, don't you think?

Tip of the day: When taking photographs, be mindful of the background. Compose your shot carefully. Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words. And NEVER stand in front of the word COUNTRY!

[The BLOG note: I didn't say it, I don't like to use the word myself, but thanks to DF for bringing this pic to my attention.]

Not A Water Dog

This is our Elke. She hates the water, but she has no qualms about getting the white pool deck dirty with her muddy paws.

It's a good thing we have a pressure washer.

Coffeeholics Unite!

I agree. Even if it is Wednesday, I still need my coffee fix and half a cup just doesn't cut it.

Do they think we're that stupid?

Triskaidekaphobia Anyone?

Because posting a photo of a black cat today was just too predictable.

Happy Friday... I hope.


This waterspout hit Tampa Bay on Monday.

Yikes and amazing all at the same time.

Clint Made My Day With This Post

If you realize each day is a gift, you may be near my age. 83.

My Twilight Years ~ Clint Eastwood

As I enjoy my twilight years, I am often struck by the inevitability that the party must end. There will be a clear, cold morning when there isn't any "more." No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat.

It seems to me that one of the important things to do before that morning comes, is to let every one of your family and friends know that you care for them by finding simple ways to let them know your heartfelt beliefs and the guiding principles of your life so they can always say, "He was my friend, and I know where he stood."

So, just in case I'm gone tomorrow, please know this:

I voted against that incompetent, lying, flip-flopping, insincere, double-talking, radical socialist, terrorist excusing, bleeding heart, narcissistic, scientific and economic moron currently in the White House!

Participating in a gun buy-back program because you think that criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbors have too many kids.
