Not a cheat – days are long is one line. Hope Alex is feeling better soon. My offering follows:

This one liner joke was placed strategically in one of the bags from our curbside pickup. The clerk could hardly contain himself. Miss Jill, there’s something extra for you when you’re unloading the groceries. I was hoping for candy; they did that last October. Instead I found this note. Cute huh?

Why do vampires always keep their promises? Because they stake their life on it.

Ba-dum-tis. We’ll be here all week. lol

If you’d like to join in, here are the rules and pingback.

As always, more to come.

Linda gets us started with an Oscar Wilde quote. Ooh, that’s a good one. To see it and/or join in, here are the rules and ping back.

For my offering today, I am sticking with the Irish poet …

I can resist everything except temptation. ~ Oscar Wilde

Happy Wednesday!

As always, more to come.

Lookie here for the rules and ping back. Thanks Linda!! I’m writing this in advance so I won’t match the theme today. This one liner also requires some background. We’re living in Zoomlandia at work. That’s my made up word for the environment. We have Zoom meeting after Zoom meeting. We turn Slack messages into Zoom calls. Constant connection despite the miles. Pretty cool actually since yesterday I got to Zoom into out London office. Next best thing to being there. Well no it isn’t really next best but it’ll do. Actually being there would be a bucket list item come true. Anyway I digress. Moving on …

As I popped into a quick call last week, the other recipient’s camera was on the fritz. I see a fuzzy blank screen but I hear a hold on just a minute. Then in the sweetest Texas drawl, my coworker tells me …

There you go, just takes a jiggle.

That’s it. I’m easily amused. Maybe you had to be there? lol 😂

As always more to come.

I ❤ cats! Linda’s kitty is camera shy. What a purty baby. If you’d like to join in, take a look here for the rules and ping back.

Staying with the theme …

What’s the difference between a comma and a cat?

One is a pause at the end of a clause and the other has claws at the end of its paws.

Also sharing one of my favorite memes …

As always, more to come.

Time for #1linerWeds. Thanks Linda for hosting. To join in HERE are the rules and ping back.

J-Dub’s Edition: First Happy Heavenly B-Day to my momma. She’d be 89 today if she was still with us. ❤ I’m sticking with the theme – retirement jobs! Ha that’s an oxymoron if I ever heard one. Hehe. I’ve attended two retirement Zoom celebrations and read of many others on our non-sponsored company FB page this summer. I wish those fine folks well. I’m a bit jelly. I’m also getting so close y’all. I can feel it!!!

The list Linda put up has all sorts of cushy jobs. My wish was that in retirement that I could be the drink cart driver on the golf course. I’d be outdoors but under the shaded canopy of my cart, making people happy. Serving drinks & shooting the breeze. Ahhh, now that’s the stuff.

Okay, finally time to land the plane. Still sticking with the theme. This one liner meme floating around the ethernet says a lot about current state:

Now hiring, people who will show up …

As always. more to come.

Linda is out there buying schools supplies for the last time. Bittersweet for sure. She still has time for us. #1linerWeds. is ready to roll. If you’d like to join in, here are the rules and ping back. My entry today is from the TV show Reservation Dogs

You listen, you learn, a warrior has to take a beating sometimes, that’s how he gets stronger you know, it’s all about getting back up again

Uncle Brownie

Our new favorite show, limit series I believe. I always draw correlations from TV into my real life. Timing is often coincidental but this line really hit home. My Pony Boy is a warrior !!

As always, more to come.

Happy Wednesday. Linda is hosting us once again. Smells like a bakery over at her place. I hope our blueberry English muffins are still good because I’m jonesing for a snack. To join in, here are the rules and ping pack.

Short and sweet today from me …

What does not kill me makes me stronger
