Slowly creeping my way back into the blogging world, though I can’t promise anything regular yet, except for the Ten Things series, which was scheduled clear into December before I got sick. But I figured I could muster up the energy to share a few writing and reading related memes with you today. Hope you find one or two you enjoy. 🤗
And there you have it for this Monday.
Thanks for stopping by!
Another busy, busy weekend, but I can rest happy knowing that on Saturday, I sent a lot of folks on their way with their heads stuffed full of facts about opossums and armadillos! There. Now how many folks can say that this morning? 😀 😀 😀
I want to let you know that while I’m not on another blog break already, I may be around a bit less than usual for a couple of days as I take care of some errands and catch up on a few other things totally NOT involving opossums and armadillos! Honest.
In the meantime, here are a couple of memes to make you smile, or possibly even laugh out loud. If you’ve seen some of them before, I hope they are worth a second look. 😀 Enjoy! 😀
Running so late I almost decided not to give this a go today, but then realized that even one or two good laughs can brighten someone’s Monday. So, with that in mind, here ya go! A little bit of nostalgia for ya! 😀
And yes … Please set phasers to LOL!
(Or to GROAN, whichever works best for you.)
Some oldies but goodies today.
After all, a few things bear repeating now and then.
😀 😀 😀
Okay, two humans, two dogs, two cats,
and back where we started with a roller coaster. It’s only fitting!
Happy Monday, Y’all!
Nothing makes Monday easier than a good laugh or two.
Hope you find some new ones in these!
And that’s it for today, folks.
I. Am. OUTTA HERE!
😀 😀 😀
BE AFRAID. BE VERY AFRAID.
THEY’RE COMING, I TELL YOU! GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN!
TOO LATE! THEY’RE HERE!
WAITING IN LINE TO BUY TICKETS
LEAD SINGER’S GIRL OF THE WEEK
COULDN’T GET A TICKET
WHAT’S ALL THE FUSS ABOUT?
NEXT YEAR, I’LL BE OLD ENOUGH TO GO, TOO!
And there you have it for this Monday!
Just one for you today, but it’s a goodie! Since Monday’s memes are usually writing/reading related, this infographic fits the bill, and is extremely interesting, as well as amusing! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! 😀
Sometimes Monday’s writing memes are funny, and sometimes they are inspiring. Hope today’s are food for thought!
And there you have it, my friends!
Have a great Moon’s Day and an even greater week!
Some of you may have seen a few of these, but they are too good not to pass along. Hope they make you laugh as hard as I did!
