Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, blogging pals! I didn't post last week because I had absolutely no motivation to do so. But I'm back! How is everyone doing? What's going on with you? We're just trying to pass the time. We're in another lockdown, which will last for about four weeks. Everything, aside from essential services, has shut down, and we're advised to stay home. COVID cases have risen across the country and there is a fear of stressing the healthcare system to a breaking point and forcing doctors to make life and death decisions. I'm not surprised we're in this situation. Too many large gatherings over the holidays, anti-maskers, conspiracy theorists, and on and on goes the list of boneheadedness, which has contributed to the problem. And so do statements such as "this is just like the flu" or "Bill Gates has created this virus" or "a chip will be implanted with the vaccine to track us". Please stop saying these things. You sound stupid. If you're concerned about being tracked, get rid of your smartphone and get off the internet.

Sorry, not sorry, for being blunt like this. I'm just tired of the nonsense and the me, me, me attitude... We're all fed up with this virus. We all miss doing the things we enjoy and being with people we love. We're all in this and doing the best we can to get through it. And we will get through it. We will. But until such time, we should think of the greater good and take care of one another.

Okay, rant over. Share below. Did I mention that we watched The Queen's Gambit? It took us quite some time to get into it but I'm so glad we did. It is really good! And right now we're zipping through the series Ratched, which But enjoyable. What about you? Are you watching anything interesting or reading any good books? Share below!

Now, let's get to the funny stuff. Have a good laugh and make sure to have a good day, too!

Happy first Monday of 2021, my friends! How is everyone? Are you happy to be done with 2020? I know I am. It's been pretty much a write off. Here's hoping for a much better year ahead, at least the latter part of it.

We had a very quiet holiday season. Aside from some phone calls and video chats, the most amazing man in the world and I had a solo celebration. My younger daughter and her boyfriend did drive down from Ottawa to personally deliver some gifts to us a few days after Christmas but we only met outside for a few minutes before they headed off to their next destination. I thought it was really sweet the way the two of them were playing Santa with friends and family. I loved seeing them, even if it was for a short time, and I look forward to when we can get together for extended periods.

Other than that, I've got nothing. We're in a lockdown and the majority of businesses are closed, so we just pick up essentials and scurry back to the nest. When we're fortunate enough to have nice weather, we go for walks. What about you? What's going on where you are?

While you think about it, here's some funny stuff to start the week off on the right foot. Hope they make you smile! Have a wonderful week ahead. Stay safe and be well.

YES! Yes I do wish.

Happy Monday, blogging friends! What's up with everyone? I really don't have anything new to report on our end. It's been very quiet. But at least the weather is pleasant. Last night the most amazing man in the world and I went for a lengthy walk. With freshly fallen snow from earlier that day together with mild weather, it was quite magical outdoors. We really enjoyed the crisp air and the leisurely stroll.

It's just going to be the two of us this Christmas. We want to respect the rules and not contribute to the problem. COVID cases have risen in my small city and have exploded in some larger cities across the country. You know what else has risen? Anti mask protests and health guidelines resistance. I'm looking at you Alberta. What the hell's going on out there?

Another thing that is growing is the misinformation being posted on Facebook from people I know, including the conspiracy theory that Bill Gates created this virus and a whole bunch of other stupidities. OHMYFLIPPIN' goddess, seriously? Oh yeah, sure, I'm  not going to believe information provided by credible sources such as scientists, healthcare workers, epidemiologists, the WHO, the Public Health Agency of Canada, the CDC, etc., but I am going to believe obscure and ludicrous nonsense shared by Joe Schmoe who received his PhD from Google University or by someone who runs some rinky-dink website. UGH...

So here's a stocking stuffer for those of you who might need it in dealing with these types of people:

Okay, rant over. If you have Netflix, I HIGHLY recommend that you watch The Surgeon's Cut. It's a documentary-style series about four very talented and groundbreaking surgeons. It is amazing!

And now, let's get to the funny stuff, shall we? I hope they make you smile and I also hope you have a wonderful day ahead.
