Just a few quick grins for you today. (Busy, busy, BUSY week!) Hope you find a couple of new ones in this bunch, or still get a giggle out of a few older ones. Enjoy!

They grow up so fast!

For my fellow WOZ fanatics.

Thinking of trying this look myself, sans jewelry.
(See above.)

Just a few signs of the times.

No Kidding!

You think?

And finally, one for my friends in Texas!

And there you have it, folks!Β 

#MondayMeme – #MondayBlogs

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? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€Β 

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. πŸ˜€Β  Enjoy! πŸ˜€

And Remember:

#ReblogAlert – Smorgasbord Weekly RoundUp

What a fabulous week this was on Sally Cronin’s Smorgasbord! Her Weekly RoundUp post has enough going on to keep you busy until the NEXT one! So many great guests,Β  including some of my very favorite writers and bloggers! And the videos are wonderful, as usual. My favorite is the beautiful story behind the friendship of a beautiful parrot and a dog. (There’s a lesson in there somewhere, too.) Hope you’ll stop by and check it out. It’s well worth seeing for yourself!

#ThorsDaySmile #Laughter #Humor

What with all the strange news about UFOs lately, I thought maybe studying life on earth from the perspective of aliens might be fun, so here’s some Nathan W. Pyle humor for you to enjoy!

And there you have our world from the viewpoint of the Aliens Among Us!
Makes you realize just how truly weird we are, doesn’t it!

Update: Laughing at What Ails Ye – It’s Good for Body and Soul!

It’s been my lifelong belief that you can handle anything thrown your way once you reach the point where you can laugh about it. Laughter is a saving grace we have all been blessed with, but the importance of which is often forgotten. I honestly do not know how anyone who can’t laugh at themselves, and at life in general, can survive, though I see plenty of evidence today that many people have lost the ability.Β  My heart goes out to them, for they apparently lack one of the greatest survival tools of all.

πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Granted, as I was lying on the floor Tuesday, in blinding pain and with the mounting fear that I had fractured my skull in the worst fall I’ve ever taken, I was not laughing. Nope. Way too soon. Nor did I laugh while struggling to get to my feet and into some clothing,Β  so I wouldn’t have to go to the ER in my nightgown. Still too soon. I did start making a few feeble jokes with the good folks in the ER. Maybe not too soon for a dark chuckle or two, but definitely too early for anything resembling clever humor.Β 

And so it went for three days, as I reflected on how lucky I was to still be alive and possessed of functioning brain cells, though a few of those may have abandoned ship in the great tumble. But actual humor was still a struggle. It kept being drowned out by the mother of all headaches, some pretty extreme fatigue, andΒ  a lot of overall shakiness. But guess what? It’s baaaa-aaaaack!

πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Yes, my sense of humor–weird and slightly twisted as it often is–has returned! I’m laughing again this morning! And after a conversation with my very good friend and cover designer, Nicki Forde-Ficocelli (who says she is going to paint a flowered helmet for me), I realized I’m laughing all over the place. It was the vision of me wearing said helmet while riding around on a tiny tricycle a la Arte Johnson from the old Laugh-In show that did me in, and is still making me giggle. (Hey, I never said all my jokesΒ  were genius quality!)

The upshot of this is, I’m feeling much more stable on my feet, much more certain that my life will return to something resembling normal, and pretty darn sure that no matter what’s going on, if I can find something about it to make me laugh, I can survive!

My sense of humor has stood me in good stead for 75 years, and hopefully, I’ll get a bit more mileage out of it, yet. And my hope for you is that no matter what life throws your way (or where life decides to throw YOU), you’ll be able to find the humor in the situation at some point. Laughing will save your sanity, and it has the added bonus of making everyone around you wonder what the heck you’re up to. Try it. I heartily recommend it.Β

Our regularly scheduled programming will resume on Monday! Have a great weekend!
