Chuckles and Chortles

Happy new week, blogging pals! How are you all doing? How was the weekend? Did you do anything special? See anyone? Go anywhere? Watch anything? Inquiring minds want to know, so share, share, share below. Hey, that rhymed. Look at me, the poet. *snort*

I met up with three girlfriends yesterday in the small city of Vaudreuil, which is about a 40 minute drive from my home. I drove over in piss-pouring rain, which I wouldn't do for just anyone, but these women are very special to me. We all met before the age of 14, a few of us way before that and spent our entire teenage years hanging out together and having fun. And so many years later, we're still getting together. And it always amazes me how easy it is to be with people that you go way back with. You share something very special with them.

Today I'm at the food bank volunteering. Yes, I'm still there. Last month I celebrated one year with them. I don't have plans to stop any time soon. I'm really enjoying it there.

Now let's get to the funny stuff, which is why you're really here. Amiright? Yeah...







Have a good one, everyone!

  1. Ha! Funny and seasonal. That witch's suspicions of her neighbor are right on the money, but I hadn't ever thought of the afterlife still involving bathroom breaks.

    Hopefully the food bank is ready for a lot of donations of leftover candy on Friday.....

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed! I have a feeling there's no worry about bathroom breaks after we exit this world :)

  2. Aside from driving in heavy rain, it sounds like a good thing to get out and visit close friends. Love that. So funny with the comics. I snagged the Cookie Monster one to use. Thank you and boogie boogie.

    1. Driving in that weather was not fun. But getting together with those friends was. So all in all a very good day. And hey, take any photos you'd like. I took them from somewhere else! :)

    2. Thanks, Martha.
      I don't know if I told you but I jumped from Nikon DSLR to Canon Mirroless.
      Oh my gosh. I love the Canon. Saving for my 100 mm L series, next.
      It's a whole knew world with Canon.
      Are you taking pictures these days?

  3. How neat that you have friends you keep up with from your school days! Oh my gosh, these were all great Halloween laughs! Cooling off here, actually"cold" out today at 60 degrees this morning. Good for you for the volunteering at the food bank and your 1 year anniversary with it!

  4. agg great chuckles today - love them all - ...and you go along way back with those friends - how nice it must be. I don't have that in my life - i kind of wish I did but I lost touch with the few close ones I had or they passed away. That's great about the food bank.

  7. Martha, thank you for once again providing us with laughs and humor. And good for you volunteering at your food bank. No one should go hungry. Food banks are a worthy cause. I read Art and Motorcycle Maintenance years ago and loved it. My philosopher friend used it as a text for his students.

  8. All excellent funnies! I particularly like the sheet hitting the fan and the cookie monster :)

    I know what you mean about old friends. They're so comfortable to be with.

    Kudos to you on your work with the food bank. It's great when our wants match up with someone else's needs. That makes a perfect volunteer match.

  14. Nifty fall and Halloween comic ideals!

  20. I wish I could have photographed the jack-o-lanterns at work. Each team had one. I have no idea who decorated ours. They were adorable. I like the pumpkins that want to go to a good home. Everything is pumpkin spice at this time of year.

    Love,
    Janie

  21. Your cartoon picks are hilarious as usual! Good to hear you were able to catch up with friends. Your description of the rain made me chuckle as we are having similar stuff here. Soon the roads will be covered with ice and I will just stay home until April!
