Random Amusing Memories

Some of my best memories are of my kids as they were growing up, their friends, and my nieces and nephews. I really miss those days. I was younger, not disabled, and they were the best years of my life.

I’ve found myself being reminded of several events this past few days. I’ll see something on tv, read something, or see a photo that reminds me of something from the past. Sometimes it makes me laugh, and sometimes brings a tear to my eye. I’m sharing a few of those memories with you today.


My son’s first day of Kindergarten didn’t go as planned. He wanted to wear his new Batman flip-flops to school and I didn’t see a problem since the weather was still very hot. The flip-flops looked something like these pictured. Within 2 hours of being in school, one of the flip-flops broke. He was devastated. When I went to pick him up that day, his teacher told me that it ruined his entire day.

That very same teacher, when my son was an adult and out of school, saw my son and I in the Walmart parking lot. She yelled, “Chuck, is that you?” My son yelled, “No!” I must have laughed for 30 minutes!

I recall one April Fool’s Day, my son and his then-girlfriend decided to play a prank, and it was a good one. I had no clue what they had done until mid-morning when I went to get a fork for my pancakes. I was completely shocked as the drawer was completely void of knives and forks! “What the hell happened to all the silverware?” I yelled. I walked into the living room and there they sat with smirks on their faces holding back the laughter the best they could. Suddenly, something caught my attention from above and I looked up. Lo and behold, every knife and fork we owned was taped to the ceiling!

Another April Fool’s Day, my son thought it would be pretty funny to hide the car. (He was old enough to know how to drive.) He moved the car behind the shed, out of sight. It was after lunch before I looked out the window and noticed the car was gone. I thought someone had stolen it!

I was 35 for 5 years before my kids did the math. Yesterday, my daughter pm’d me and asked what I would like for my birthday this year. I replied, “Oh fuck. Do I have to have another? I’m too fucking old already,” to which she replied, “What? You’re only 35!” Of course, I laughed my ass off just being reminded of those years when I got away with being 35 years old!!

From the ages of 6 to about 12, my daughter would wake up in the middle of the night, and sit with us in the living room. She always had this glossy-eyed, out-of-sorts look on her face, which told me she was sleep-walking AND that she actually got up to go pee. We would sit and carry on complete conversations with her, until I told her she should go to the bathroom. She would get up and go, and then head right back to bed. The next day, she wouldn’t remember a thing!

One time, my son and I were going to Walmart and it started to rain – POUR down rain – just as we got there. We decided to make a run for it. He was only about 4, so I was holding his hand. I hit a giant puddle of water and landed face-down, taking my son down with me. We got up, soaking wet, and my poor little boy looked up at me and asked, “Why’d you do that for, mommy?”

A friend of my son’s came over one day after school. I think they were in high school at the time. I don’t recall what we had that evening but the friend stayed for dinner. Afterward, he told me that he’d rather I take his plate to the sink, because he didn’t want to break our good China! It was very thoughtful of him but I assured him, they were Dollar Tree plates and definitely NOT good China…although they were probably made in China! We all laughed. It was pretty funny at the time!


Well, there’s a few random memories that are now documented in type, so I won’t ever forget…unless my blog gets deleted. Ugh. I’ll bet you have some pretty funny (and fond) memories, too.

Friday’s Funnies – My Faves This Week

Happy Friday, Folks! So, what’s going on in your neck of the woods? I hope this week has been good to you. Have you taken the time to laugh? I think it’s helpful to unwind with some humor so, without further ado, let’s unwind with Friday’s Funnies!


I’d have to say #4!
No, 2020 would have to be worse than the prep!
I wish they’d come for me!
Something my son would have done if given the opportunity!
It’s just a flesh wound!
I know people who would do this if they could!
Yeah, whipping cream sounds much better than horse manure!
Who the hell wants to grow up?
Wow. I wonder wtf happened in 1620?
I hate this word, but knowing what it meant in 1544 makes me feel better about using it.
Who knew?
Did you know?!


I’m having a hard time deciding which one is my fave! There are 4 that had me rolling… The “WTF Tombstone,” “Growing Up,” “Cunt,” and “Hamburger” were pretty dang funny to me. What do you think? Which ones made you laugh the most? Let me know and if you run across any funny memes you’d like to share be sure and send them my way!

Have a super weekend, everyone! Don’t forget to live a little and laugh a lot!

Throwback Thursday

I was going through some old photos I took when my granddaughter was little. I stumbled across these; my favorites in a sequence. They are a bit out of focus but you can still see the humor behind them. Starting top/middle/bottom, moving left to right: These photos show little Daph squeezing between the chair and side table, getting stuck, waiting patiently or thinking how she would get out, and then finally the look as if to plea with Grandma to help her out of this predicament and stop taking photos!

Friday’s Funnies – My Faves This Week

Here we are. Friday again. Didn’t we just have one of those? I hope everyone has had a good week. Mine has been ok, aside from wondering what the heck day it is every single day.

I’m having a hard time with this blasted editor. I hate when they change things that I’m used to into something that seems to be more trouble than it’s worth. I really don’t like this one bit.

I have decided to share fewer funnies from now on. At least until I have mastered this stupid editor. I hope you enjoy this week’s set! Let me know what you think!


So, what do you think? Which was your favorite? I’m pretty sure the “city people in the country” and the last one with the funky dolls are my faves! I think I may have shared that last one before but it cracks me up every time I see it! Just the look on their faces!! And the pig nose in the other one! Oink, oink, oink!!

Well, that’s it for this week, folks! I hope you have enjoyed this post! I will be back (hopefully) with more posts next week. I’m trying to get myself back on track with writing. I know I’m not the best writer but I can’t improve if I don’t practice, right?

If y’all would like to follow me on Facebook, that would be great! I am trying my best to get back on track there, too! Links below:

Have a great weekend! See you on Monday! (I’m still taking the weekends off!)

Friday’s Funnies – Coronavirus Edition

There’s a lot of bullshit flowing on the web this week. I’m sick of hearing about COVID-19. The entire situation is extremely worrisome, but wouldn’t be so bad if the “stable genius” had addressed the problem with a) intelligence, b) facts, and c) clarity. He has no idea what the hell he is doing. But this isn’t a political post. I’ll save that for another time.

I finally got my meds straightened out and met my new FNP. She was very personable and spoke with knowledge without talking down to me. I asked her about the clinic’s process if someone thinks they might have the virus. Her answers were reassuring and I left feeling that it would be handled competently. I went to Walmart to pick up my meds and a few other things afterward.

Walmart was a madhouse. Families pushing 2 and 3 carts packed full of supplies were everywhere. I actually got a scooter and I realized on the way home why it was so easy to get one today, of all days. Well, a scooter basket doesn’t hold enough for the zombie apocalypse you know!!!! It’s really a good thing I didn’t need toilet paper because there was not one package left on the shelves! Paper towels and facial tissues were pretty slim pickins, too! They were low or completely out of so many things! Ugh.

Anyway, folks… Here’s this week’s dose of levity. Enjoy!












































My pick for 3rd place this week:



My pick for 2nd place:



And my pick for #1:




Now, if some of those don’t make you laugh then there’s something wrong with you! Seriously, though. I had a hard time choosing my faves! The Quarantini and That 70’s Mom were pretty close in the running but I had to pick the ones that made me laugh the most! Which are your picks?

Tomorrow Dad and I are off to do some last-minute errands and to have some lunch. It will be our last day out for a while, I think. We shall lay low for a couple of weeks and let the zombies run amuck!

Have a great weekend, folks! Thanks for following my blog and remember, wash your hands!
