Saturday Silly – May 25, 2019


Boy this has been a busy month.  We have all kinds of holidays and observances.  This month is Older Americans Month.  I thought that was so cool!  I was so excited about it, I told this lady in the restroom about it.  I said, “Hey, May is Older Americans Month; you should celebrate.”  Then I realized I was looking in the mirror and talking to myself.  I’m glad we only have monthly observances once a year; I’d be talking to myself all year long!  *The way to prevent getting old is to just keep getting older.

Love you from Cafe du Mondieu

Saturday Silly – May 18,2019


I don’t know if anybody else does this, but, sometimes when it’s been a very long day, my mind just kind of does its own thing.  The other night I was walking along to my spot.  It was late, and I was tired; very tired.  Anyway, I glanced up and happened to see this sign on a building: United Movement.

Immediately, Communal Outhouse comes to my mind.  I thought, “Now, can’t you just see that one? Four or five people on “the bench” in the outhouse; all at the same time…Oh, man!  You throw a good pot of chilli or some bad burritos into the mix…well, that sure would put a new spin on that thing they call “The Wave.”


Love you from Cafe du Mondeiu

Saturday Silly – May 11, 2019


Isn’t the warm weather wonderful?!  Finally!  Time for shorts and bathing suits, etc.  I am feeling so strong; and the curves are finally going in the right direction again.  LOL!  I’ve had to be really disciplined about my diet and exercise, though.  I walk as much as I can.  My diet is pretty good, all things considered.  I mean, I remember the days when I ate fast food constantly, and really wasn’t exercising at all.

Let me tell you, that middle age spread was beginning to look like major property.  And gravity was sure beginning to take it’s toll, too.  Seriously, I felt like I needed a lift on both ends!  Even my husband was aware of it.  One day we were at the grocery store, and he kept running into me with the shopping cart from behind.  I finally asked him what the heck he was doing.  He replied, “I’m just trying to hold up my end, Dear.”

Love you from Cafe du Mondieu

Saturday Silly – April 27, 2019


Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, is about feeling the presence of the Lord with us.  I was sitting in the park this morning, enjoying the sunshine and warm weather.  I had one of those mockingbird encounters.  I’m pretty sure that was Jesus’ way of saying good morning to me.

He (the bird; not Jesus) started out just chattering at me.  Then there was, “Good morning.”  I was just about to eat a croissant when he chirped something like, “ready?”  I laughed at him and asked, “are you hungry?”  He didn’t answer, but he did come down out of the tree.  Then, he made the rounds under all the empty picnic tables.  There was a man sitting at one table, with his head resting on his arms.  The little mockingbird went back up into his tree, which was just beside that table.  Then I heard what sounded like an alarm going off.  It was the bird.  I said, “are you an alarm clock?”  I laughed when the little man sat up and was looking around.  The next sound that little mockingbird made was like a truck backing up…”beep, beep, beep,” he twittered.  It made my day, but I thought, if I see that little bird moon-walking on that tree limb right now…”  See there, Jesus is a very entertaining Lord.  I could almost hear Him up there giggling at us.  And, I’m sure grateful that He’s the ringmaster in this circus called life.

Hmm…I think that might be an Easter Egg…


What did the jockey shout to the young horse named Thicket?    “Run, Forest, Run!…okay, I know…but I so love Tom Hanks and that movie!   Picture courtesy of Pinterest    PS – I think the horse is one of the most beautiful animals to watch, and I absolutely love horses!

Saturday Silly – April 6, 2019


Last week’s Saturday Silly got me thinking about things people say that just don’t come out right.  I’ve had a few laughs at myself over the years…”Oh, wow, that didn’t come out right,” I’d say.

That made me remember a friend who caught her husband cheating on her.  She actually walked in on them kissing in the kitchen.  There was a holiday get together going on.  She went into the kitchen to refill a snack tray, and there they were in each other’s arms.  I don’t know how she managed to keep her cool until the party was over, but nobody there knew what had just transpired, except the three of them.

Later, she and her husband were discussing the scene.  “How would you like it if you caught me in the arms of another woman and kissing her,” she asked him.  “Would I,” he asked.  “Of course not, dummy; it would be another man,” was her reply.   When she told me about it, I almost fell out of the chair laughing.  She said his eyes got big as saucers and it took her a good 45 minutes to convince him that she’d never cheated and never would.  She giggled all that night over it in spite of the situation.  Yes, the are divorced; and she still laughs when she remembers that “discussion.”
