Chuckles and Chortles

Happy new week, everyone! How was your weekend? Ours was pretty quiet. We went out for dinner on Saturday night but that's about it. This week will be much busier as we prepare to wash and start painting the front room in our home. Once we're done with that, we can finally unpack and put away all our stuff!

My daughter sent me this photo of her cat, Obi:


Isn't this little bean head adorable? I want to reach into the image and plant a kiss on her fluffy head.

Speaking of my daughter, she's very grateful to everyone who has visited her blog and she's been visiting your blogs but having a hard time leaving comments on some of them, mostly the ones that are on blogger. It all depends on how you're set up and who you allow to comment. Anyhow, just thought I'd mention it.

Now shall we laugh? Let's do it...








Have a great day!

  7. My weekend was . . . kind of odd. That's the way it is most of the time. Obi is super cute. My favorite is low-tech support.

    Love,
    Janie

  9. Thanks for the funnies! They really crack me up! If I were charged with emotional baggage, I'd be bankrupt lol...Obi is adorable. I don't have my blog set up to receive anonymous comments, I find it keeps the spammers away, but it does make it difficult for some people to comment.

    1. I don't think that's a problem for her. She started with a regular Wordpress blog and then got a .com site. It's attached to her blog but seems to be causing her problems when she wants to comment. It's quite bizarre.

  10. I love the Yahoo Answers conversation! Oh heck, they are all good :)

    Is your daughter maybe leaving comments on moderated blogs like mine, where the comment isn't published until the owner approves it? I did get her comment and it's now published, in case I'm one of the guilty parties :D

    Obi is sweet! And you are nearly finished with your house--that's wonderful.

    1. No, that's not a problem. Ever since she changed to a .com site from her regular Wordpress blog, she's been having trouble leaving comments. It's really strange.

  11. I remember seeing that one about the microwaved butterflies. :D

    I'm always jealous of the progress you've made in your house when we've done so little and been here years! We did have a new garage roof 2 weeks ago!

    1. We had the motivation because we just moved in. We didn't do much in our last home!

  12. The butterfly one, oh my gosh. Your daughter has your
    talent for photos. I'm enjoying her on IG, as well.

  13. Low tech support, what a great idea!

  14. Hi Martha, I'm still refusing the pain killers. Cocodamol is so addictive. Or is that cocaine? You know, there's one thing I hate. It's when people say where they are going on holiday. I never go away. I stay here 24 hours a day and never moan about it. I even stay here on Christmas Day!. Ok,one of the carers stops with me, but what the heck? I honestly don't know who won the court case that decides what food I can eat. The carers don't know either. What I DO know is that I get a lot of pain in my legs. I like to intake of drugs to the minimum.

    1. Why isn't anyone telling you what happened with the court case? That's not good. You have a right to know!

      And I don't blame you about the pain killers. They can be quite addictive. But is there something you can take that isn't addictive to help ease your pain?

  15. Just what I needed to get this week started!

  18. Please tell Alex I'm in love with her cat...Good luck with your front room!

  19. Hi, Martha! It's been fun to catch up how your art and home are progressing and see the latest C&Cs. Microwaving butterflies??? I'm not surprised that the delivery company left the sofa on your doorstep. A big package takes up a lot of space and returning costs money. I'm glad everything turned out all right. Little Obsidian is so cute. I hope that you find more time to spend on your drawing which is coming along so well. Have a good one, my friend!

    2. You and me both, Louise! I've seen a lot of her photos from Portugal and it is such a beautiful place. I'm glad she and her boyfriend grabbed that opportunity and went. These are the types of experiences she'll always remember.

    1. Thank you, Baili, for your lovely comments! Obi is a sweet cat and she's a good companion for my daughter. And speaking of my daughter, I hope she gets to travel many times in her life. It is fun and it's a great educational experience. She will meet many people around the world and learn about different cultures. Have a wonderful weekend!

  24. I feel sorry for models in photos that get used in ways like that. People who know her will think she's weird.
