Surprise! A (Short and Random) Funny Photo Post


It's been a while, hasn't it! I apologize for the long wait. I couldn't find any funny photos. I did look, but either the world is not as funny, or I'm not as easily amused as in the past.

Actually, there might be something to that. Me not being as easily amused, I mean. I stopped taking anti-depressants several months ago because they were making my hair fall out. No joke, apparently a potential side effect of SSRI's is that they may make your hair follicles go to sleep. I'd not had that effect until several years ago, but didn't pin-point what was making my hair fall out until just recently. I'm happy to say much of the hair has grown back, and I don't seem to be crying for no reason yet, but I imagine it's entirely possible that my sense of humor has changed somewhat.

For the record, I went off the medication with my doctor's supervision. I don't recommend anyone stop taking medication for mental health issues solo. And my husband has strict orders that if he notices me acting like a super-emotional slug to tell me so I can work with my doctor on the issue. So far, so good, though.

Here's the photos I could find that were entertaining this week!

The realist's meme...

I actually jumped when I finally noticed to momma bear!

It looks like a skeksis from Dark Crystal! I wonder what bird that is.

In case you need help (I did) it's "Circle of Life."
I have made a decision that I am going to start writing posts to fill in for when I can't find any funny photos. I can't say what the posts will be about--probably a little about writing, a little about life. They may be super short, or maybe longer. The idea is to have a post every week, so I don't go over a month without posting again. Many of the people I began blogging with have disappeared, but I don't want to do that. I have so much time and effort put into this blog that I'm not willing to give it up. At least not yet!

My favorite photo was the YMCA praying mantis. It took me a second to figure the caption out, and when I did I actually laughed out loud--so it gets my vote!

Have a great week!

Silly Saturday Photos: Bunny Beer

Happy Weekend!

How was your week? Was it like this?

That's how I've been feeling lately. It's all good though. I just remind myself that life's a process, and I just need to keep trying to get back on the branch. Keep trying and soon enough I'll lift myself up. Or maybe I'll get a little help, right?

Reminds me of the Ood in the Doctor Who show The Beast Below. "We will feed... We will feed... You."

Quite a Through the Fairy Ring meme. :)

I'm about the only person I know who is allergic to hops, and therefore, beer.

Well, that's about it! I hope you have a great upcoming week!

My favorite is the Beer with Extra Hops. It's a fun play on the word.

Silly Saturday Photos: Sexy Kitty

Happy Weekend to all!

I started today off wrong, by scrolling through Twitter and reading all the political extremist's posts. And when I say political extremists, I mean both sides. A large part of the story of Through the Fairy Ring is Hazel trying to figure out what the hell is going on and who is the true bad guy. I really need to get my story done, as it sure seems relevant to the mess we have going on today.

I've been contemplating  putting TTFR on Wattpad as I rewrite it, but two things have stopped me from starting. The first is that it wouldn't have copy-editing. I, of course, would copy-edit it before I put it up, but it wouldn't have outside copy-editing at that point. The second reason is that I've been trying to decide if I want to release it at all as a to-buy book. But, a plus to putting it on Wattpad is that it would give me a shove to keep editing and getting the book done. Any of my writer friends have opinions? I really would like some feedback on the idea.

So, let's move on to the new photos! I'm sorry as usual that things got delayed a couple of extra weeks. I won't bore you with excuses. :)

Here you go!

My children in a nutshell. This gets so. Very. Old.


I'm quite excited because my home is within totality for the solar eclipse this summer! It's a crazy thing to see. I was near totality for the solar eclipse when I was seven, and now I'm looking forward to sharing the experience with my children.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Silly Saturday Photos: Who Gives a Puck?

Welcome to the weekend!

How is everyone? I think I'm getting to be old. Last weekend I hurt my back by bending over. That's all. Just bent over to get groceries out of the car. I had great plans to write over the extended weekend, and instead spent the entire watching Netflix/Amazon Prime with ice on my back. I did finally watch the Captain America: Civil War and the Night Manager with Tom Hiddleston. He totally deserved the Golden Globe he won for playing Jonathon Pine. I wish his acceptance speech had gone over better.

Reading or watching movies (and now writing itself) has always been an escape for me. When life has been harder to deal with, I've relied on my imagination to get me out of my head and keep me sane. There is no greater honor than to know that something I created has given the same gift to others. To entertain, to lift people out of their own lives and take them on a magic carpet ride of their imagination, is a fantastic privilege.  I think that's all he was trying to say, but instead of cutting him some slack, the internet went all crazy, as it does anymore.

Anyway, here are this week's photos! I hope you can find some thing that makes you laugh this week.

No more, no less.

And never, ever right lane.


Anyone hearing Foghorn Leghorn right now? "Screw. Ball. Screwball? Got it sonny?"

I love the little dowager bird. It looks like it's in an evening gown.

How has your last couple of weeks been?
Do you like any of the photos?

Silly Saturday Photos: A Froze Nose


Happy Saturday!

I missed another post, and decided to just switch days instead of waiting a full two more weeks. Who knows, I might move the post to Saturday all the time, so I can stay up late finding photos and not worry about having to be to work the next day.

Over the last several weeks I've made several decisions. The first is to avoid reading about US politics, which means steadfastly avoiding scrolling through any social media. Pretty soon we're going to have world leaders in twitter fights with Donald Trump and I just don't want to be a witness to it.

I've organized my home life to within an inch of  my sanity. I have a financial budget, an food and exercise plan and a weekly cleaning schedule. I'm hoping by doing a little bit of cleaning all through the week I'll have bigger blocks of time to edit on the weekends. Then I can write new stuff during the week in short-time bursts in a handwritten notebook. This is my first week trying it out, and it's looking good going into the weekend. There's very little cleaning to do, and I can conceive of editing all day on Sunday. So exciting!!

Anyway - I'm ready for new photos, so perhaps you are, too! Let's go!

And a pun.

I think my favorite is the owl. It's how I've felt this week.

Did you see one you liked better than the others? Tell me in the comments!
