#JusJoJan and #SoCS for 1/26/19 ~ ad/add/AD (Anno Domini)

Oh domino …

Good morning bloglandia.  We are combining #JusJoJan and #SoCS for the last Saturday of the month.  The lovely Linda prompted us with “ad/add/AD (Anno Domini)”. She says that we get bonus point for using them all.  Done.  Lol!

Okay, listing the prompt words “ad/add/AD (Anno Domini)” is not really “using” them.  Huh?

Real quick …

1- Ad as in advertisement.  As in we are being bugged.  Our cell phones listen to us talk y’all.  My friend was telling us how he was talking about Yeti decals on Etsy.  Before he could look them up, he got an Etsy email and Yeti decals were at the bottom of the email as if his conversation was overheard.  No fooling.  Big Brother is here!!

2- Add as in math.  As in not my thing.  As in moving on.

3- AD (Anno Domini) as Latin.  As in the year of our lord.  I say that all the time y’all.  Not being disrespectful.  It’s an expression often used round these parts. I can’t believe today is January 26, 2019 in the year of our lord.  MMXIX.  2019 AD.  Time is doing that thing again.  Flowing like a stream.  Rolling like a river.  Punking us.  Oh Domino!

I know domini is NOT domino.  But that’s stream for ya folks.  Mind goes where it goes.  When I saw the prompts words, my very first thought was Oh Domino!  Van freaking Morrison.  Happy ear worm.

Happy Saturday y’all.  I am off to get my new do.  Might post pics later if the mood strikes.  If not, catch you on the flip side.  10/4 good buddy.

#JusJoJan ~ 1/25/19 – Balance

#JusJoJan on TGIF.  JP prompted us with balance.  Take look a JP’s last post here.

Hi JP!!!  Balance is what I need right about now.

When I think of balance, I think of peace, love, and serenity.

Ohm, Ohm, Ohm, Ohm

Can you picture me sitting all praying/preying mantis style?

I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying

I’m not crying 😢… I have something in my eye 👁.

Okay, I’m misty-eyed. But happy tears. I just watched a live presentation of “Roland the Seeing Eye Dog” 🐕. Our presenter had glaucoma probably since birth but wasn’t diagnosed until 7 and eventually she became completely blind. She attended school right here in the Alamo City and now resides in our State Capital.

Fun facts:

  • All guide dogs are not seeing eye dogs. Seeing eye dog is trademarked.
  • The person receiving the dog is matched for personality and temperament.
  • Some dogs have a street name. Like me using pseudonyms for my family. Lol.  For example let’s say Roland’s street name is Lady. That way if some asks “what’s your dog’s name?” if you give the street name, when she proceeds to exclaim “Awwww Hi Lady you beautiful beautiful dog!” Roland does not react and continues guiding.
  • I am the “she” in the bullet above but I know to ask first before engaging.  For a seeing eye dog, service animal, or pet in general, ALWAYS ask before approaching.
  • A seeing eye dog in training that does not make the cut, is called a “career changer” who then assists law enforcement or fulfills other duties.

#JusJoJan ~ 1/24/19 – Zoomie

Here we are again.  We really should stop meeting like this.  Lol!

NOT!  Let’s keep this up for the remainder of January at least.  #JusJoJan in the house!!

Bee prompted us with zoomie.  Well I am going to have to google that.  Click here to find her last post .  Hi Bee!!!  I am uber happy to have met your acquaintance here in bloglandia.

The following picture is blurry as hell.  Is hell really blurry?  Who knows.  I took this picture last Sunday at 10:05 am CST to be exact because I saw my grand-pups soaking up the rays and thought how adorable.  I was in a hurry to run off to Home Depot which explains why the pic is out of focus.

They have lounged in this particular spot by the fence for so long, there is a groove and no grass grows – just dirt.  Even in bad weather, you can catch them there.    They are old men now turning nine this coming April.  They no longer zoomie regularly.  But back in the day, oh my.  The best!! With tons of room to roam and get out that energy.  Watching them frolicking or even now … thinking about them all zoomie makes my heart so happy!!!

As always, more to come.

Hats off to Linda for hosting!  Join us, won’t you? By following this link.


Living Large

A man of few words. He hasn’t received an actual birthday 🎁 in @ 30 years. When the pip squeak came along, our funds were diverted elsewhere. Or every day is his birthday depending who you ask?!?!?

And tonight I’m watching him cook stroganoff … occasionally stirring the noodles … instead of waiting for my food to appear 😂 Now that’s we call living large. Happy birthday B. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Random Musings 1/22/19

I’m easily amused. Today I partook of … drum 🥁 roll please

Soaking it in while I still can. And I walked as I ate my cone cuz I’m pretty sure there’s no calories if you walk briskly while eating.

I also hopped over to my new parking structure. The one that I’ll start using on Monday. It’s a long way away. Which I’m grateful for because walking to and fro will be my only exercise.

On the way back I took a detour. Along the river which is where I saw AFLAC

I was going to walk farther. But I saw two young gentleman jump off a balcony of one of the pricey condos. I’m like holy sH!t they’re robbing the place. They weren’t robbing the place … I have no idea what was happening but I got paranoid and I ran back inside.

As always more to come.

#JusJoJan ~ 1/22/19 – Curiosity

Hello fellow bloggers. Time for #JusJoJan. Pamela prompted us with “curiosity”. See her last post here https://butterflysand.com/2019/01/21/daily-quip-1058/

Hi Pamela!!! Great prompt.

Thank goodness for curiosity because being curious was likely the impetus to improvements in a wide variety of things. Ya know, like light 💡 bulbs over candles 🕯. The telephone. Medical advances and as much as I grouse about the medical meat market I have to admit some very cutting edge work is happening. Skies the limit!! Cool 😎 stuff.

My first thought 💭 though was a rhyme.

Curiosity killed the cat 🐈

Satisfaction brought it back

So scratch those curious itchy parts y’all. In other words, if you’re curious about something then follow the path. Even if doing so bites you in the behind. Cuz “they” whoever “they” are say we learn even from our failures.

And that’s all she wrote. For today that is. Bueno bye 👋

As always more to come.
