So, how many Fridays have I missed? Weekdays? Weeks? Months?? Crap. I’ve been neglecting my blog for months. I just can’t seem to get my shit together. Between my chronic pain issues and looking after Dad, my wheels just spin and spin and spin some more. Every day, the same thing. We still don’t go out much except for the weekly curbside grocery order and once in a while, we have lunch at our favorite restaurant. We took the 13-year-old granddaughter out for lunch last week and had a wonderful time! But I digress. That’s all for another post…that is IF I can manage to write it.
Today is about Friday’s Funnies! Finally. I hope you have a lovely Friday and a good laugh with this week’s collection! Enjoy!
Do you have any faves? I hope you got a few chuckles or at least a smile out of this bunch. I think I like the Toenail cake, Mayberry, Weiner Cutoff, and… Oh, heck! I can’t decide now! Your call, my friends!
I hope to get back to this blog on a more regular basis soon, and back to reading YOUR blogs! I’m so behind! Anyway, thanks for being patient and for following my blog.
Until next time, stay cool and hydrated! Have a super weekend, friends!
Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Annah. Annah’s mother, Becky, decided that her good friend Camile would be a better mom for Annah, so she gave her up. Camile and her husband, Daniel, adopted Annah. Annah grew up in Wisconsin, knowing her biological mother as well as her adoptive parents. Annah was on the high-end of the autism scale and had ADHD and bouts of depression as she grew up.
All was well until Camile and Daniel began having marital problems and split up. They divorced and Camile began a relationship with another man. Annah started having issues with her parent’s divorce and her mom’s new boyfriend. She began to act out.
Annah had episodes of self-harm and Camile was worried. She had Annah admitted to a hospital to get treatment. She was put on medication and had regular appointments with a therapist.
Eventually, 15-year-old Annah began having issues again and Camile, being extremely worried, got in touch with Annah’s biological mother, Becky. Becky was aware of the issues Annah was having along the way. Camile and Becky decided that perhaps they could help ‘reset’ Annah’s behavior and Becky agreed to take Annah home to her farm in Illinois.
Annah was happy being on the farm with her biological mother. She loved taking care of the animals. She became a volunteer firefighter, like Becky. She enjoyed the people around her. Everyone loved Annah and they said she appeared happy.
A year later, everything changed. Stop here if you are easily upset.
Becky called the sheriff and reported 16-year-old Annah missing. The sheriff and his deputies searched and searched the 81-acre property but no Annah. After several days they called in cadaver dogs. The dogs searched and searched and didn’t hit on anything suspicious until they got to a burn pile. The pile was built up about 6 feet tall but the dog hit on the pile. The cadaver dog handler brought in another dog, and that dog also hit on the same area.
After disassembling the burn pile, several bones, teeth, and a jawbone were found at the very bottom. It was later verified to be the remains of Annah.
It was later learned that Becky had drugged Annah and when she thought she was dead, she put Annah in the burn pile and sat all night until her body was virtually gone. BUT at one point, Annah woke up! Becky panicked and knocked Annah out with a rake until she couldn’t scream anymore.
This is definitely a horror story but do you know that this really happened? I changed the names and left out many details, but this actually happened 5 years ago in my county!
The mother’s trial was last week and we are awaiting the outcome of the MO vs. Ruud bench trial. The judge will be making his decision later this month.
MO vs. Rebecca Ruud Bench Trial DAY 3 Closing Arguments:
I know, it’s hours of testimony and you don’t have time for that. I get it. But just in case you’re interested, I thought I’d add the trial links. It wasn’t the most professional trial, in my opinion. The audio and video also not so professional but I sat through the entire thing.
This case has bothered me since it happened. It just rips my heart out. I cannot even fathom how any mother or human being for that matter, could do what this woman has done! I know, innocent until proven guilty but she admitted that she burned the body, and after watching the trial and hearing all of the evidence, I believe she did more than that.
I was binge-watching “Detectorists” the other night, minding my own business. I heard the critters under the house, moving furniture again. That’s what we call it, anyway. It sounds like I have downstairs neighbors moving furniture around at the most ungodly morning hours. It drives me bonkers!
So, the critters were at it again. Only this time, it was extremely loud and then grew even LOUDER! They kept on for at least 20 minutes. They were so loud that my cats were freaked out and ran out of the room. I was banging on the floor as loudly as I could, hoping to spook the critters away, or at least shut them up. That didn’t seem to bother them.
The noise was coming from one specific area of the room. I stood on the floor at that spot and stomped my feet repeatedly, hoping to scare them off. They weren’t threatened at all. What really freaked me out was not the noise they were making. It was the fact that as I stood there, I could FEEL the movement and it was so intense that I swear, if I put a glass of water on the floor it would have made waves in the glass!
That’s the worst the critter activity has been and I still wonder WHAT critter(s) are living under our house? Are they raccoons, opossum, skunks, or something else? And what the literal hell are they doing under there?
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.
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!
