I’m a firm believer in laughter. It helps us cope with everything, and keeps us sane in trying times like these. With that thought in mind, and with NO disrespect meant to anyone, anywhere, here’s today’s #ThorsDaySmile selection. I hope you find a chuckle or two in the mix.
Kind of a Mixed Bag Today,
But Good for a Giggle Anyway, I hope!
“When you’re a Jet, you’re a Jet all the way,
From your first cigarette to your last dying day!”
And finally, ya gotta love those Oldies!
(No, seriously. Ya gotta. It’s like a law, or somethin’!)
And there you have it, Folks!
Hope it made you smile!
It’s here. Summer in Florida, where weeks of triple digit temps keep most of us locked safely inside our air-conditioned houses. But for those brave souls who venture forth to pursue trivial activities like, oh, I dunno–earning a living, perhaps–life can be full of mind-boggling sights and adventures. Ready or not, here come a few for your viewing horror–errmm–I mean, pleasure. Those of you who have been here in July and August can vouch for the truth of these images. Enjoy. And just remember our state motto:
Florida. The Rules are Different Here
Ya do what ya gotta do #1
You do what ya gotta do #2
And last, some words of caution:
Eye Bleach—Don’t Leave Home Without It!!!
Yes, I know there have been a lot of ThorsDay dogs and cats, lately,
but I can’t help it. Some of them are just too funny to resist.
However, I promise there’s at least ONE today
with nary a dog nor cat in sight.
And finally, the catless, dogless, and wordless one I promised.
Sorry, for any typos, but I’m doing this with my eyes closed,
because I cant stop laughing.
My sides hurt, and I still can’t stop laughing!
For some reason, this strikes me as the funniest picture
I’ve ever seen.
Because why not? Animals are life’s best de-stressors, right? So here you go.
😀 😀 😀
(It’s true, you know. Cats have no bones.)
And the Grand Finale!
Wanted to start the week off with an update for you guys, especially for new followers who don’t know that I used to run regular weekly or monthly features here on The Write Stuff. Most of you do know that I’ve been generally whining, and grumbling, and otherwise making a nuisance of myself about being so far behind on everything I’m trying to do. Well, it’s time for that to STOP!
No, I haven’t magically caught up with everything overnight, but the good news is, I’m making slow, steady progress, knock wood! And I am ready to start reintroducing the features we used to enjoy around here. It might take me a few weeks to get all of them “up and running,” but you can expect to see the following things coming back on board–and some of them will probably start this week, alongside a few that never totally went away.
- #MondayMeme – Memes with a writing/reading/books theme
- #Thorsday Smile – Things I think are funny & hope you’ll enjoy
- #WhyWriteWrong? – Words I see misused fairly often
- #ShareAReviewDay – Recent/favorite reviews submitted by you guys
- #ExcerptWeek – A week of sharing excerpts from your book of choice
- #FabulousFridayGuestBlogger – Self-explanatory
- #LifeLessonsFromOz – Vids I share for a smile (and perhaps a lesson?)
- #MidWeekPOV – Just some things/ideas I share now and then
- #InspirationBoardSunday – Images/Ideas/CoverArt I find inspiring
Some of these are meant to be weekly features, though it might take me a couple weeks to get them up and running. Some are posted randomly as the mood or subject matter strikes my fancy. But ALL are coming back over the next couple of months. And many of them involve you wonderful bloggers and authors “out there.” You’ll be invited when these come up, and I’ll explain how to participate in them at that time.
Hope you’ll enjoy having these features back again, and will want to take part in some of them. I know many of you would probably love to share your reviews and excerpts with us, and your latest promo news, releases, cover reveals, etc, as well. And I’m really looking forward to helping you do just that.
To begin, I’ll be posting some archived samples of these features over the next week or two, so you see what they’re all about, and will feel comfortable joining in.
Stay tuned, my wonderful friends! I can hardly wait to get the ball rolling!
Late, yes, but here they are anyway! A weird assortment, but I hope you enjoy them!
A few animals to make you smile!
Been working all day on revisions and edits of The Emissary 2, but I’m done for now, and it’s still ThorsDay! With that in mind, here are some random smiles for you! Enjoy!
And finally! (You knew there’d be a cat, didn’t you?)
Haven’t shared any Gary Larson cartoons for a while.
How about a few examples of his take on animals?
Twisted & bizarre? Of course. It’s Larson, after all!
