Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, my friends. How is everyone? Has spring come your way? I know it’s really warmed up for a few ‘cause rumour has it that a couple of you have gone bike riding. We’re not quite there yet. Still a bit too chilly. But things could be worse ‘cause I also hear that some of you have gotten snow. Lots of snow. Well, spring will find all of us soon enough.

We spent the day in Ottawa on Saturday for a very good reason, which I’ll explain later this week. Very exciting times over at our place! And the daffodils have made an appearance. They poked their little heads out of the soil last week. My garden is preparing to wake up. Grab my hand and let’s do the happy dance!

You don’t dance? That’s a shame. But I’m sure you all laugh. Let’s get to that...









Coming soon to a neighbourhood near you...



A super day to all!

  1. There are some signs of spring here, and we're glad to have gotten some rain this evening.
    I love the first one. I went to Legoland in CA and it was amazing what some OTHER PEOPLE can build with Legos. Smiles. Have a great week, Martha.

  2. Spring was not coming my way so I drove to summer!

    I hope you didn’t come to Ottawa for the tulips festival, it's still 2 months away :)

    LOL I do have a G spot in my ear, but my doctor took the Q-tips away from me; I should find a doctor that is more understanding!

    1. You're talking to the garden and photography enthusiast. It would be shameful if I didn't know when the tulip festival is. Shameful :) No, that wasn't the reason. I'll explain on Friday.

      Your doctor is a meanie :)

LOL oh girl you are so funny, lol oh gosh no it's winter here, but when it starts heating up because I'm on top floor and there's holes everywhere i'll meet those lovely stingy ladies I'm all for capturing them in a plastic with a cover and put them outside unless of course they hurt one of my cats, then no mercy I will squash them like the bugs they are lol I knew i felt something different yesterday, ah girl so close and yet oh so far and I love your space ship....builds my 2 floor something....

    1. The good thing about winter is the lack of bugs! Although I do miss some like ladybugs and bees and butterflies and dragonflies and some others. I guess we have to put up with the annoying bugs to enjoy the good ones!

  4. In England the daffs have been out for a month. They're all a bit confused as they normally follow crocuses but I now have daffs crocus and tulips in bloom.

    1. Hmmm...I hadn't really noticed, but now that you mention it... :) This brings to mind a funny story. One time when I was waiting for my appointment with a lawyer, I noticed on his coffee table a book with the title: "Lawyers and Other Reptiles". Funniest thing I've ever seen!

    1. That last one is a reminder of what we'll be complaining about soon! But...I'll take it anyway 'cause I just can't stand winter.

  12. I got a lego set of the White House, and man that thing was complicated. I'm not a patient man. Daisy was surprisingly very good at building it.

    1. She must be very patient. I'm not sure I'd be up for that.

  13. I can tell that you're starting to get excited about spring. As always the cartoons are a good way to start a MOnday. I only got in one bike ride and it snowed again.

    1. Hopefully that will be your last snow fall and you'll have your bike out for good. We haven't gotten any other snow but it's been a little cold.

  14. Is Legos plural or would it just be Lego? I just know they hurt like a sonofabitch when you step on them.

    1. You bet they do! I've had my fair share of Lego pain followed by ^#&$^#&$^

  15. Oooh, mosquitoes are one thing I don't miss! I guess I should be grateful for the snow we just got...ahhh.
    The legos remind me of the great work my grandma and sister do with art (watercolor and drawing), while I struggle to draw, say, a box.

    1. You and me both, Bethany! I have family members that are naturally talented but the art gene didn't come to me.
