Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, to all. But more important than that, happy February! Yes, we are done with January. That evil month is gone. Outta here. Its ass has been kicked to the curb. And although February is officially still winter, and it could potentially be a nasty and miserable month, there is one good thing about it. We can say “next month it’s spring!” So there’s that. There is hope on the horizon. Truly.


And I think we all need that hope. It’s been a tough winter for most of us. I was talking about this with a cashier recently, and she said to me “We’re having an old-fashioned Canadian winter.” We sure are. Lots of snow, and freezing temperatures. Won’t end too soon for me.

Let’s forget about that for  now, and laugh a little...









Have a lovely week, and a great month!

  2. If Canada would just keep their door closed so all that old-fashion winter cold would stay up in their house I'd be thrilled. lol! I'm so with that first cartoon. I'm so looking forward to spring!

    1. Oh, I don't know, Sia...I think some of your northern regions can give Canada a run for its money. Buffalo, NY, for example. And some of the storms that end up passing by my home originate down south! :)

      At the end of the day, let's just say that we're all looking forward to spring after this long, hard winter! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I remember those days in the grocery store. When I eventually have children of my own, I can see the roles reversed.

  7. Luv the show of hands cartoon...

    I hate to bring bad news Martha but: Ontario’s Wiarton Willie emerged and saw his shadow. That means Ontarian can expect six more weeks of winter.

    Any one has Groundhog soup recipe? ha ha ha

  10. Our groundhog has predicted the same. As I write the snow is falling. This is our first true winter in years.
    If the RI drivers actually knew how to drive in snow, it would be lovely. Unfortunately, they haven't a clue.

    1. If people aren't used to dealing with hard winters, they really don't have the skills for winter driving. It becomes chaos!

    1. You are right, Carolyn. The south is not Canada. We're used to that type of weather, and don't worry much about it. We have the necessary clothing, the proper heating, and snow removal equipment; all of that helps us get through it. But in the south, it's really hard. Hope your weather warms up!
