Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope your weekend was great. Ours was focused around our bikes. Both days. And a few days before that, too. We’ve become bike-riding fools. We tour our city with them, and we take them along when we visit neighbouring towns and bike through those areas, as well. It’s a lot of fun. And we’re discovering and exploring new areas.

For example, yesterday we rode through a pathway between homes that leads to a tiny park near the lake. We parked our bikes to take a closer look...


...and discovered this view:


Breathtaking. And peaceful. We stayed for awhile to take some photos and soak in the magnificence of this isolated area.

So we’re obsessed with bike-riding, and I hope it continues for awhile. But this morning, let’s all gather here for a chuckle or two...







A beautiful day to all!

    1. That is fabulous! It's a wonderful way to stay in shape. And you get to see so many things as you ride along.

  5. I sneak my own snacks into the movies when I'm going to the big chain Cineplexes. Screw the Corporate Giants! They don't need any more of my money! But when I go to our locally-owned arthouse cinema, I buy their outrageously overpriced goodies just to help them keep the cashflow going.

    1. I do the same, Debra, especially with popcorn. I can't stand their popcorn. Too salty, and weighed down by all the oil (or grease or lard...). After eating that crappy popcorn, I'd feel sick all night. Now I air pop some at home and we sneak it in. No guilt! No shame!

    1. I bet you could still peddle, Carolyn. It's such a fun way to get around, and a great way to exercise.

      I remember you mentioned the broken TV. That is just awful. And you must have freaked!

  9. Hey Martha,

    How's it goin', eh. Nothing like a bit of biking. I had a close up look at the water and I'm sure I can see Ogopogo! :)

    Gotta love those photo captions. And speaking of "Farcebook", did you know I'm one of your adoring fans on your FB page? Yep, it's true, eh.

    Gary :)

    1. I didn't know you were a fan, Gary! Nice to have you onboard :) I started that page to add fun and interesting things that I stumble across, but it's never been hugely active. Still. I keep it going.

      Yup, biking is great. Love it. We stopped doing it for awhile, and ever time we get on these days, I ask "Why didn't we continue?"

  10. Oh my gosh, that last one. Too much.

    My weekend was filled with bakes and we stayed in the entire two days. Leaves are already falling in our backyard. Looks pretty. I love it.

    Happy New Week!

    1. Happy week to you, too, Wonder Woman! Sometimes we do that, too, just stay indoors. Usually during the colder months. We try to squeeze in outdoor stuff this time of year. Winters are very long and hard some years, and there'll be plenty of indoor days. Unless our battery is burnt. Then we stay inside to re-energize, no matter the time of year. I bet you baked some fabulous goodies!

    1. Being with hubby is definitely the best part, Margie! I feel that way, too. And I love being outdoors in this amazing world.

  14. IS it OK to be envious of your bicycle-riding fanaticism?! We are entertaining the idea to get bikes again......we LIVED on our bikes for years! I hope you keep enjoying yours for years to come, Martha.
    Now to the funnies....loved them all especially the last one!! Cats are schizophrenic I believe.
