Friday’s Funnies – Theme: Auto Mishaps

 

Happy Friday, folks! I hope all is well.

I always have good intentions when it comes to my blog but things always get in the way. This past couple of weeks, I’ve had to keep my internet/wifi disconnected due to storm activity; all I need is to lose my modem and router. Ugh.

My pain level has been higher than usual, too. Partly the damp weather, I’m sure. Partly the fact that when there’s a storm I have to unplug my lift chair, which means I can’t sleep in a reclined position. Gone are the days of sleeping in my bed comfortably. Sleeping sitting up does not allow for good, restorative sleep. 

I’ve had to keep a closer eye on Dad this past month. He’s had 3 falls and I have had to cancel a couple of appointments because I just don’t feel comfortable leaving him alone. It’s sad watching a parent grow older and become weaker. It just breaks my heart.

Anyway, on a lighter note… I hope this collection of funnies hits you in the funny bone! I decided on an auto-themed collection. Enjoy!

Well, there ya go! I hope you enjoyed this week’s collection! I’m sure we’ve all been witness to something like the above mishaps at one time or another! Never fails…

Have a super weekend and remember Covid cases are on the rise, yet again. Be safe and don’t be stupid. 

Until next time,

Friday’s Funnies – Theme: Rain That Never Stops!

We’ve had an enormous amount of rain this month, which wouldn’t be such a bad thing BUT we also had a few very high winds. Those high winds blew some of the roofing off my Dad’s bedroom, so when the rain came…well, let’s just say it rained in my Dad’s bedroom for 24 hours straight…and it’s not done yet! There were buckets everywhere and plastic over his bed, desk, dresser, and tv. Now to get someone out here so Dad doesn’t decide to get up on the roof himself! Dad’s bedroom isn’t the only problem. There’s at least one bucket in every room of the house. We need to get the new house finished, pronto!

I hope you find the humor in these memes. In no way are they meant to make light of the damage and loss that people have endured during extreme wet weather. I just found it fitting to post them since we’ve been having such a wet month and it certainly shows in our house!

Well, there ya go! Have any favorites? I think I like Walking My Fish and Floating Mannequin! Oh, and the Dehydrated Mud meme…that looks just like our yard! Haha! I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s collection!

Have a super weekend, everyone! As for my weekend…ugh. It’s raining again and I wish it would stop! I’m tired of having to move things and the sound of water dripping, in the house!

Until next time,

Marbles

A couple of weeks ago, I went with my best friend to an appointment. I hate leaving Dad alone these days, but bestie needed moral support and I left Dad with his food to take at lunch and something easy to pop in the microwave. I left instructions on how to feed the cats if I wasn’t home by 4pm. I made sure he had his phone on so I could text him a couple of times. I showed him how to type a text message, assuring him that I wouldn’t send a text that required more than a simple “Ok.”

To my first text, when bestie and I arrived at the medical facility, he responded, “Takecare.” Then just a few minutes later, he called me. There I was, sitting in the middle of a crowded waiting room and he calls me, ugh. He asked me if I had received his text response. I told him, yes and then he informed me that he didn’t know if he did it right because I forgot to show him how to send the text. Oopsie. “My bad,” says I. “You figured it out though!”

Then, he shocked the hell out of me and I’m sure my jaw dropped. He asked me, “Who am I talking to?” My heart skipped a beat. I was too far away from him at that instant to be able to protect him from…himself. I was so worried! I told him, “This is your daughter, Debbie.” He replied, “Ok. You sounded like one of your sisters.” Boy, was I relieved he hadn’t lost his marbles! I told him I was trying to talk softly because I was in the middle of the waiting room. He said, “Oh.” A minute later, we ended the call.

You can see below what a time he has texting!

I’m thankful he can still be left alone on occasion. I’m thankful that he can still take care of himself for the most part. I still worry that he will fall. The last fall he had was last July and it was a pretty bad one. He fell on his face and sprained his arm. His nose was not only bleeding inside but it was split down the center and was bleeding everywhere! He was so worried about the carpet! “Get a rag. Hurry!” he kept saying over and over. I wasn’t worried about the damn carpet! I have a pet stain removal product that works wonders on blood and EVERY stain I’ve encountered so far! Our carpet is the same ol’ mess it was prior to his fall. It really needs replacing…

Anyway, he recovered from that after a couple of days. The next time could be worse, so I worry. Fingers crossed there won’t be a next time.

Early Childhood Memories

I was thinking about my childhood the other day and I began to remember many things I had long forgotten. I then tried to think back as far as I could and I recalled two memories from when I was very small.

Memory #1

I was around 4 years old and in nursery school. I remember having apple juice and graham crackers for snacks. I remember crying a lot because I felt lost. I also wanted to ride one of the tricycles that the other children got to ride, but for some reason, I was not allowed. I feel like something significant happened there because to this day, the smell of apple juice brings me back to that nursery school and makes me want to hurl. I wish I could remember more. Maybe I shouldn’t…

Memory #2

I think I must’ve been around 5 or 6 when my mom and dad and I went to Missouri to visit one of my mom’s relatives. I remember a teenage girl nicknamed “Butter” and she had bright red hair. She was always looking at herself in the mirror and fixing her hair. I looked up to her at the time. She seemed so sophisticated! I wanted to be just like her! I remember an older woman, whom I adored because she was so kind and loving. She was always cooking something delicious! She reminded me of Hazel, The Witch, a book that I had read myself or had someone else read to me. I can’t remember which. I’m pretty sure we were on a farm but the only animals I remember are pigs. I laugh now but back then I stood on a hill and threw rocks down below at the pigs in a pen. Poor little pigs. I wonder where everyone else was when I was doing this? Were they not watching me? I could have wandered off and got lost or hurt myself, being a little girl not used to country life.

How far back can you remember?

Sleep Walking

Have you ever walked in your sleep? I have never…but my daughter did in her pre-teen and early teen years.

She would get up after a couple of hours of sleep, while I was still up watching tv. She always had a glassy-eyed look on her face and was in what seemed to be zombie mode. She would just walk into the living room and plop down beside me on the couch as if everything was perfectly normal. I’d say to her, “Are you ok?” No reply. Just a glassy-eyed stare and weird smile. This continues for several minutes.

“Are you hungry?” No reply. Just a glassy-eyed stare and weird smile.

“Do you feel ok?” No reply. Just a glassy-eyed stare and weird smile.

“Did you have a bad dream?” No reply. Just a glassy-eyed stare and weird smile.

“Do you have to pee?” No reply. Just a glassy-eyed stare and weird smile.

I tell her, “Get up and GO PEE!” She gets up to go to the bathroom. When she comes back she goes immediately to her room. As she passes, I say, “Goodnight.” She replies, “Goodnight.”

When asked about it the next morning, she’d never remember.

Do you have any funny sleepwalking stories? I’d love to hear them!
