    Sunday Funnies… {Super Bowl 50 Edition}

    It’s time!! The day football fans have been working toward for months…. mammoth amounts of wings, beer, chips, dip, guacamole (Zantac, anyone?), shameless screaming at officials who can’t hear us, and The.Most.Important.Part – the commercials ….  Super Bowl Sunday has arrived! In the spirit of the day and in honor of one of my favorite friends who is a HUUUUUUGE football fan who counts down to the start of every football season….  Sorry, Bex, the Cowboys still aren’t there and it’ll be seven long months until football season returns.  😉 To all the football fans out there – including The Mr. …. Go, Panthers! 🙂 Have a Super Sunday!

    Sunday Funnies… {Are We There Yet?}

    Parents, how many times have you heard THAT question? Remember your first road trip with your kids when you had more than one cherub and ruckus was sure to happen any minute or, even tougher – parents traveled with kids and without  DVD players in vehicles? Did the kiddos drive you nuts?? Well, this weekend was our turn – our first-ever road trip with ‘the kids’ – my husband’s soon-to-be 20 y/o daughter whom we recently found (long story with a great ending), and her fiancé. While they’re visiting us from another state, we hopped on the highway to take them to meet her paternal grandmother for the first time.  We rented a minivan ~ our MacDaddy Family Ride….. quite different from what Husband…

    Sunday Funnies… {Finding Your Tribe}

    Don’t you love it when a friend sees a quote or a picture and thinks of you (preferably in a good way!).  Recently, my friend and fellow writer, Natine, tagged me in a photo that made me laugh out loud (and nod in agreement). The comments of the others tagged too, were just as funny. Seems those of us tagged all understand that our tribe is just a little …. hmmmm… shall we say unorthodox…..  According to dictionary.com, synonyms for unorthodox include: eccentric unconventional unusual crazy nonconformist off-the-beaten-path weird Yep! I’d say those are all a good fit at one time or another.   🙂 Different drummer, different music, different, different. But oh-so-special! As fellow bloggers,…

    Polish, Postmortem?

      Who thinks about toenails, and more specifically, toenail polish, postmortem? Admittedly (0ddly!), I do. What?!? I can see your face, that quizzical look taking over. Let me explain…. About twenty-five years ago, while taking an A & P class in college, I was invited to participate in a visit to the local chiropractic college, where we’d have the opportunity to examine cadavers. First thought: Ugh!  Second thought: Fascinating! Count me in. Entering tentatively, I remember the smells of preservatives (formaldehyde?) filling my nose as draped bodies lay lifeless, an experience that stays sharp in my mind, in my otherwise sketchy memories. It was, at once, fascinating and unnerving.     As we examined the cadavers, I remember noticing small things that stuck with…

    Eventually, all of us ladies get there.  Some freak out, some take it in stride….  Me??  After ten years in the ‘holding pattern,’ I say, Let’s do this!  I’m thinking a little humor will go a loooong way. 😉     Wishful thinking….   And on those extra-special days…..     Have a super Sunday! 🙂

    Sunday Funnies… {Language}

    For those who’ve followed me a while, you know I often reach out to my buddies on Facebook for a little Sunday Funny inspiration. I admit, my eclectic group of friends, from artists to educators (and everything in between), working and retired, near and far, leaves me no shortage of funny stuff to share.  Since I can completely relate to it, here’s a funny from one of those friends… Maybe you can relate??  😉      Have a great rest of your Sunday! 🙂

    Sunday Funnies… {Life, According to Yoda}

    First Sunday Funny of 2016… For those who haven’t heard me talk about it, I’m married to a Star Wars fan fanatic, so all things Star Wars have made their way into our home recently, including this….   and this little clip…. It’s cute, even if you’re not a Star Wars fanatic…. ummm… fan! Enjoy!   Happy Sunday! 🙂

    Sunday Funnies… {NFL Edition}

    Are you ready for some football?? Here in the U.S., it’s just about that season again (yay!), but you don’t need to be a football fan to appreciate this video. It is some of THE funniest writing on the Internet! The husband and I watch and rewatch every time a new one comes out. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.    Have a great rest of your Sunday! 🙂

    Sunday Funnies… {Back-to-School Edition}

    One of my former high school students tagged me in a back-to-school video worth a click. Thought I’d share it today – for a little chuckle, indeed. If you aren’t a parent (yet or ever), just watch the parents around you at the grocery store.  You’ll begin to notice how parents feel about the time-honored tradition of back-to-school preparation and that coveted First Day of School …..   (If you listen carefully that day, you’ll probably hear a collective cheer in your neighborhood.)  😉    Have a great rest of your Sunday! 🙂

    Sunday Funnies… {Friends’ Take on Life}

    So, it’s Sunday and I’ve been (regrettably) absent that past few weekends … though busy to say the least. In fact, today I’m knee-deep in this (very happily, I might add)….     … but didn’t want to let another Sunday get by without sharing something to (hopefully) make you smile (if you’re reading).  If you’re not reading this post, then I hope you’re smiling at other things…    😉 Anyway, I turned to my Facebook friends for a little humor today. They’re typically sharing the oddest things, though today they seemed to be mostly ranting about politics – unusual for my crowd – so I had to dig deep. Found a couple worth a smile …… For…
