Chuckles and Chortles

Happy new week, blogging pals! How is everyone? Did you have a nice weekend? What did you do? Where did you go? Who did you see? Share whatever you'd like in the comments. I'd love to hear all about it.

Saturday afternoon we drove to the West Island in Montreal to watch the most amazing man in the world's very close friend playing on stage with his two bands at the rib fest. A lot of people go there for the food but since I don't eat much meat, I'm not a fan of ribs or heavy sauces, and I steer clear of pork and fried foods, the smell from all those stalls was really overwhelming. I could feel my stomach doing somersaults at the very thought of eating anything from there. I thought the most amazing man in the world would want to try something from the competitors but he wasn't in the mood for any of it. Luckily we found one vendor that was selling veggie type foods with more wholesome ingredients and we got something light to eat. Hey, we all have our eating preferences. Yesterday was a very quiet, slacking-off kind of day because we need some of those, too.

And right now I'm going to share some funny stuff with you, so the day can start off with a smile. Let's get to it.







Have a great day ahead!

    1. Not always, Christine! LOL But I do prefer foods that are not processed or weighed down by lots of sugar.

  3. I wouldn't want to eat all that heavy stuff, either. I'm glad you found something better suited to your tastes. The guy who has retired cartoon reminds me of when my dad retired. My mom bought a second TV and put it in the living room because she couldn't stand the way my dad commandeered the remote in the family room. He flipped through the channels constantly. I'm surprised she didn't smack him with a skillet or at least a wooden spoon.

    Love,
    Janie

Sounds like you had fun at the rib fest, but I don't think I'd each much of that either, I'm not really a rib fan...but Alex would be in heaven!

    1. I'm not a fan of that type of food. Heavy meals like that make me feel sick. But there were enough people there to make up for my lack of interest! LOL You should have seen some of the plates people were carrying. Enough to feed an entire family!

  12. I'm glad that you had a great weekend, fueled with food you enjoy. I'm eating less and less meat these days, but I have to admit I do enjoy a small serving of great ribs. Loved the funnies, especially the retirement one. Terry wisely is quiet on how I tackle things ~ LOL Enjoy your week, my friend!

    1. I'm eating so much less meat as I get older. I'm just not interested in it anymore. I prefer lighter meals and more vegetables. Easier on the digestion! LOL

  13. that is good you took drive to meet your hubby's friend and had wonderful time there Martha!


    as usual i again forgot to complete my comment on post below .
    Poverty is painful to bear and terrible to observe .
    If richest men in this world believe that in their short lives they won't be able to spend their whole money and take it out of banks and distribute among who need it badly they will make the correct use of it according to economical rules .
    i know it sounds crazy for people who only think with brain and don't feel with their heart but i am the simple person with simplest solutions

    1. Thank you for your thoughts, baili. You are a kind person. I believe we can eliminate poverty if we wanted to.

  16. Hi, the wife should be here tomorrow. That's great, it's always nice to see her. There's gonna come a time when I don't see her. That's sad. It's part of life and I've learned to expect it. No-one knows what's going to happen in the future. That worries me. I didn't envisage Usain Bolt ever losing to anyone. But it happened. Anything is possible. .Canada could win the next World Cup. Well, ALMOST anything is possible, but let's not get carried away here. It'll happen one day. Not yet though. 👀

    Here in the UK we are looking forward to a three day weekend, as it's the late August Bank Holiday.

    Eddie and I usually stay close to home as the traffic on the roads can be quite heavy!
