I was on the bus recently, and passed a little place that reminded me of my drinking days. It also reminded me of an old friend. She had a real funny sense of humor…and it never failed; she always got me with it! Always!

One night, she and I were out and about, in a little town not far from Billings. We were looking for a place to have a drink and maybe shoot some pool. As we pulled up to a local bar there, my friend read the sign in their big front window, and said to me, “Crafty Beer Liquor? Wow! Wouldn’t it be cheaper if they just used bar mops? I mean, they’re a dollar a dozen. They have to pay that guy or girl $7.50 an hour to lick that beer up!”

Saturday Silly-September 19, 2020

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, bids us to look for the joy in life. It is when we take joy in the Lord and His awesome love, that we become more and more able to find the many joys to be found in life.

That being said, I’ve been viciously attacked by some vile and cowardly people, who have all but destroyed my right breast with some lipolizer apps and stun gun type apparatuses. It is, at present, approximately two inches shorter than my left breast. That’s alright, because God doesn’t miss a thing, and there’s is such a thing as phyto-estrogen.

I was reminded of a friend who talked to me about having breast augmentation done. She said, “They use fat now, you know; and there are discount cosmetic surgical clinics too.” I said, “Oh boy, discount clinics, huh? I can just see you with great big breasts, and a little curly piggy tail.” ( I was joking, of course. They use your own body fat.) She looked at me and burst out laughing. “Oh, my God,” she said, “breast augmentation doesn’t affect your hair!” I got the joy, joy, joy….LOL I love you , Jesus!!!!!

Saturday Silly-September 12, 2020

First, I want to say, I am so thankful to all you wonderful folks who give of your resources and time, and come to make sure the homeless people don’t go hungry.

I was sitting, doing my Bible study recently, when a car pulled up, and a lady handed me a sack lunch. I thanked her and she drove off. As I was looking through sack, I came upon a can of Vienna Sausages. These are not one of my favorites. “Oh, man,” I thought, “yuk.” Then I looked up to Heaven and said, “Okay, Lord, I”m offering up my suffering for my new house.” “That’s a pretty steep bargain,” I heard in my spirit. So I answered, “Don’t look at me; you’re the Jew. You taught me how to bargain.” Then I laughed. I thanked the Lord for my lunch and for the generous lady, and ate. Fortunately I had some bread left to wrap the sausages in.

I finished my Bible study after lunch, and decided to go to the store. As I came around the corner of the block, this truck came down the street, with a dog house in the back. Again, in my spirit, I heard laughter, and then, “You’re not the only who’s funny.” LOL…and I’m still laughing. Oh, how I love Jesus!

*That last part I worked into the story. It came to me yesterday while I was on the bus. But, Jesus really does do stuff like that.

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, bids us to breathe Jesus’ Name. That Name strengthens us and banishes all fear. Proverbs 18:10 is referenced: “The Name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous runs into it, and is safe.” As I thought about how many times I’ve run into it, in terror, in dejection, even in anger…and ended up holding my sides and laughing as I came out…

That leads me to this little treasure. On this day, August 29, 1964, Walt Disney’s Mary Poppins was released. It’s one of my favorite Disney movies! I’m posting the link to one of my favorite scenes below. It reminds me exactly of how strong we ladies really are…in all our own silly ways…and, yes, I’m pretty sure I, for one, give poor Jesus some good laughs…Just keep breathing His Name! That’s were we get that power, isn’t it? Oh, we’ve come a long way, Baby; haven’t we? LOL I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Thank you, Disney, for sharing!

Love you from Cafe du Mondieu

Today is National Tooth Fairy Day! I wonder if I knocked out the rest of my teeth, would the tooth fairy keep the dime and bring me some dentures instead. Something to pray for….since today’s message from God Calling bids us to offer up our troubles daily, for some soul in need of help, or for some special prayer.

Today in history, 1911 to be exact, the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre museum. That’s really encouraging to me. I bet the tooth fairy took her to get her some dentures. That’s probably why she never smiled; she didn’t have good teeth anymore, either.

A friend and I were discussing recent news headlines.  This included the Corona virus relief plan negotiations and Nancy Pelosi.   The lady definitely does play hardball, doesn’t she?  My friend-not a fan of Ms. Pelosi’s either, said, “Somebody needs to put that woman into a suitcase, and send her into outer space on the next rocket they launch.”

Being a Christian, I really don’t get too excited about politics.  I try to stay aware of what’s going on, but I trust the Lord.  God’s got it under control.  I believe that with all my heart.  Anyway, what came to mind was this image of all these little demons and devils and such, on all the planets out there, packing their belongings up and heading for the Black Hole in outer space… can’t you just hear them…-“OMG! They’re sending her out here!  Oh, HELL NO!!”   I laughed out loud; because the next thing I thought of was Hebrews 12:26, where God says, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.”

It’s been an interesting week news-wise, hasn’t it?  I read the other day that the NY State Attorney General is suing the NRA.  Yeah, she’s seeking its closure.  I was discussing this with a friend yesterday.  I told her I am definitely for the right to bear arms; and I’m sure glad our right to bear arms is guaranteed us by the second amendment in the Constitution.  One look at her face told me she was pretty serious about it too.  She said, “Oh, my God!  I didn’t know they had to get the government involved in that!  I’m so glad, too, though.  I’d die in this heat if I couldn’t wear tank tops!”   Yeah, she was serious about it, alright.  Now, where did I put that tank top?

Saturday Sentimental Silly-July 25, 2020

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that God is the boss-the controller of every second of every minute of every day.  We are asked if we can see how wonderful life really is with Him.

It got me thinking back to our military days.  We don’t always like what’s happening.  I hated having to move away from friends; and it seemed as if that’s exactly what we were always doing…moving, moving, moving.  I was the oldest kid in the family, and, naturally, not very impressed with some of the stuff my younger siblings pulled.  My mother was always good for embarrassing this teenager too.  But, just when you think you’re at the end of your rope, God throws the curve ball…and everybody’s roaring with laughter.  This very thing happened on one particular journey.  Six women in the family; and all had to use the restroom.  At this particular place, there was ONE restroom for ladies.  Also, we were on a time constraint; my dad did not like to get off schedule traveling.  So, there was I, on the potty, while my sister was washing her hands-both of us crammed into this little stall.  My mother was supposed to be holding the door ajar slightly, so the next girl could duck in quickly when ready.  Something happened, and she got distracted and let go of the door, which opened wider all by itself.  Just at that instant this gorgeous guy happens by.  He’s looks in at me, and says, “Hi.”  I’m smiling at him, thinking how cute he is…”Hi,” I said back to him.  That’s when I remember I’m on the potty with my pants down around my ankles.  Needless to say, I didn’t need any blusher when touched up my makeup.

It gets better, we had dinner there.  After dinner, we all piled into the car, and Dad had to go into the restroom.  He came out of the restroom, and headed straight for this station wagon that looked exactly like ours – but wasn’t.  We were all roaring as he started to tell the poor lady in that car she needed to get out; just before he realized she was the only one in it, and he was at the wrong car.

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, bids us to walk humbly with our God…which had me reminiscing about a little reminder God gave me about that.

I’d spent a few hours in the park that day.  I needed to use the restroom before I left, so I did.  As there were no paper seat protectors, I took some toilet paper and laid it on the toilet seat.  I was more than a little disgruntled.  I thought to myself, “Now why can’t they budget to provide the seat covers in the park restrooms?” I finished by business, but, as I got up,  I lost the toilet paper that I’d put on the seat.   It wasn’t there.  I finally figured it just fell into the toilet.  I flushed the toilet and headed out of the stall.

Now, there’s an apartment complex adjacent to the park.  As I was strolling by on my way “home,” this nice little lady pointed out to me that I had toilet paper hanging out of the back of my shorts.   It’s a good thing stuff like that makes me laugh.  And, laugh I did.  See; and some of you think God lets me get away with stuff.  LOL

“Oh, kiss my hiney, Brian; stop making fun of me” the seven year old shot at her older brother.  Mom, upon hearing this, stepped in.  “Leona, is that any way to talk to your brother,” she asked.  “Didn’t Jesus tell us to turn the other cheek, dear?”  To which the  precocious little darling replied, “Yes, but He didn’t say which one!”
