Sunday Funnies!!

Best day eva!  as in ever not Eva.  Who is that??? I’m Jilly and what am I doing?  I have laughed so much today and I decided to share some funnies.  Like comics in the newspaper that I read on Sundays (well every day) but Sundays funnies were the best.  Seeing as we no longer subscribe to the newspaper, my funnies are of the garden variety – life.  And likely not funny to anyone but me.  I slay me!  lol.

First, I slept til I felt like waking up.  NO beep, beep, beep of the alarm.  Made cooked from scratch, spinach, chunky homemade salsa, and cheese omelets for breakfast.  With a side of wheat toast and bacon. Mhmmmm bacon!!!

Then Lulu and I went to the store duo vs. trio.  We had a big list too but we told B to stay at home because he already does SO freaking much for us that he needed a break.  I told Lulu that I was going to empty cart walk, run, jog two or three laps around Wally World before I started shopping cuz you see I got 5K steps two days in a row.  I wanted to make today a trifecta and I did!  Yay me! She of course went off to art supplies and got some stuff for school since she returns in less than a week 😦

I was like a mama to be y’all. Getting ready for the big day.  We’ve got a plan and we are implementing.  Feels good I tell ya.

As we checked out, the women we see every week asked after B.  T at check-out asked Lulu “where is Papa today?”  I snort laughed as Lulu said “we gave him a ‘free’ day”.  T’was the Papa that made me snort.  He is old … as am I.  I know this by the way everyone ma’am’s me these days.  K at the exit asked for him by name.

Of course I could not wait to share this info with him!  As we are unloading at home, I tell him “Your girlfriends asked where you were” And he replies “ya right” because he never believes me. Lulu said “they did dad” oh right and then he believes 😉

Once everything was put up, then the cleaning begins.  We de-cluttered places that have not seen the light of day in forever.  Moved the rarely used elliptical and you’ve no idea what was under there.  This was the purge part two … this time of our family room instead of the office.  A deep clean was long over due.

The feature photo is of my finger that I cut with an actual scissors while taking the tag off a new runner. The wound hurt like a mother goose (another regional saying).  And it took “foreva” to stop the bleeding.  I had to make due with paper towels for band-aids because when your nest is empty, your need for band-aids drops.  Guess it is time to stock up again.

As always, more to come.


For 1/6/19 ~ “Doctor, Doctor”

Jim stepped in for Helen who is taking a break.  We wish her well.  The camaraderie in bloglandia fills my heart.  Others offered to step in too.  I hope we keep the music flowing.

Here is our prompt: “doctor/health/medicine”.  I picked UFO and their song Doctor, Doctor.  Writer(s): MICHAEL SCHENKER, PHIL MOGG .  Lyrics within:

Interesting tidbits from Wikipedia:

Doctor, Doctor has been covered by several heavy metal bands, most notably by Iron Maiden.[1] Additionally, the song is played over the PA at Iron Maiden concerts before the band takes the stage.[2]

I am being very nostalgic today.  I never saw UFO, I was only 10 when they were touring but Iron Maiden was a staple concert.  Every time they came through SA we were there!! Good memories for sure.

Hope you enjoy even 1/2 as much as I do.

Rules and ping back.

#JusJoJan ~ 1/6/19

Sadje’s word for our prompt today is “master.” Click here to find her last post and say hi while you’re there! But then come back and see me puhleese.  I am feeling mighty talkative. 🙂

Right off the bat this expression comes to mind:

Jack of all trades, master of none 

What’s wrong with that huh?

Nada.   Jack could be Very Very Good (VVG) at several things. Being multi-talented is a good thing ya’ll.  Let’s see if VVG becomes the next SEP.  LOL 🙂

Or is it wrong to be Master of None (MoN)?

Just stop it Jilly.  You are not creator of new words except in your own head.

Okay bloglandia, what do you think?

Is it better to be Jack (oh that even sounds bad) or be the Master?

Inquiring minds want to know (or shameless plea for comments).

If you’d rather not talk to me, how about listening to the one, the only, Metallica! \m/

I’m an enigma folks.  People are shocked when I bring out my wild side.  While I have a very eclectic taste in music, metal is my master.  An acquired taste that I developed initially for “sticking it to the man” but then for ear happiness.  This song has some “softer” parts and then the base and drums dayum.  So good!!!! And the message … Nancy Reagan Just say no!  Though Adam Ruined Everything with Season 2 Episode 9 – the War on Drugs and all things D.A.R.E was a failure.

AnyHoo … on that sour note, hop on over to see the other #JusJoJan entries for 1/6/19.  You’ll be glad you did.

As always, more to come.
