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.”

Happy April First!


Happy April, One and All!  I’m going to try to have a ball.  We’re observing several things today; like Atheism, Poetry, and April fool’s day-by the way.                                                        That being said, I have some news…DO you Queens out there know about free shoes?   Oh, yes, my friends, oh, yes indeed.  Thank Payless Shoes for this great deed.  Come in decked out in your best suit.  Leave with a free pair-and, yes that includes boots.  I hope you like this little ditty.  I think it’s rather clever and witty.  Don’t run to Payless-no, stay away.  Because this is my  joke for April Fool’s Day.  LOL  Have a beautiful day, week, and while you’re at it, have a beautiful month!

p.s. It’s also National Sourdough Bread Day, and there’s a brand, Goldminer, that’s absolutely awesome!  I love my Tuna Salad on this bread!

Saturday Silly – March 30, 2019


Isn’t it funny how a familiar face from the past can trigger a memory.  I saw a woman yesterday who looked just like a good friend I had in junior high school.  She had an aunt an uncle who were, it seemed, a hundred years old.  I think they were in their seventies, actually.  Now, you know how those old married couples are, right?  They know each other so well they can finish each other’s sentences.  And they have a way of communicating…well, let’s just say sometimes it just doesn’t come out -or shouldn’t come out when someone else is listening anyway.  I’ll never forget that day as long as I live.

They’d been married forever.  I believe the exact amount of time was something like 48 years.  They were a hoot, those two.  I remember once when my friend and I stopped to check in on them.  It was early evening, and they were in the kitchen.  She was cooking dinner, and he was headed for the bathroom, just as we arrived.  “Well, I’m off to the shower,” he said.  “I’m going to wash my hind end.”  Without even looking up from the gravy she was stirring, my friend’s aunt replied, “Don’t forget to take your teeth out to soak when you do.”  My friend and I almost died laughing when we finally got out of there.

Today, we’re celebrating three things nationally.

National Chip and Dip day, National Puppy Day, Near Miss Day

Wowie!  Can you picture this?  You’re on the floor in front of the t.v. with your chips and dip.  The puppy comes over and lifts his leg over the dip bowl.  Your girlfriend saves the day as she grabs the chips bag and the bowl of dip, and scolds you for eating on the carpet.  How many near misses were there?

Answer: two; and you should be thankful for the one that saved your dip.

Love you from Cafe du Mondieu

Saturday Silly – March 9, 2019


Tuesday morning of this week, I said my morning prayer and sang a little praise song to the Lord…”Jesus, as I walk through this world, let me know you’re with me too…Jesus, wherever I may go, Lord, please let me find you…”  A bit later, as I was leaving Catholic Charities after the community meal, I saw a UPS driver almost hit a janitor who was cleaning the parking lot.  The two looked at each other, and each one as if to challenge the other.  I could see the driver’s face, and I had to laugh,  I thought to myself, “Yep, I’m a UPS driver-I don’t look where I’m going, I just deliver…that’s why they call us “OOPS!”  A little further up the hill, about four little sparrows flew down to the ground, looking for food. Just as they alit, a little mockingbird hurriedly stepped forward toward this little pile of Doritos that someone had left on the ground.  It was as if he was saying, “Do not approach the Doritos…”  I had to laugh.  I said, “Okay, Lord, what are you trying to tell me?”  Came the answer in my Spirit, “Make sure you’re watching for me, and stay away from the salty chips; they’re not good for you!”  …and don’t quit your day job just yet…LOL  (I had sandwich and chips three days in a row-the weekend and Monday)
