Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday Tuesday, my friends! How is it going? How are you all feeling? How are things where you are? Not much has changed around here. We're still practicing social distancing and most places are shut down. I wanted to post yesterday but I did a quick grocery run, and honestly, I just wasn't in the right head space after that. Food shopping has become a tiresome chore. It has to be planned well, so I don't forget anything, and it has to be executed in a strategic way, so I can be in and out as quickly and efficiently as possible. Aside from the fact that I don't want to be in the store longer than necessary, I'm also mindful of the people waiting in line outside, the same line that I was in before I got a chance to do my shopping. It's not just about me. Anyhow, despite it all, I managed to get everything I had on my list, and then some. All the shelves were fully stocked; more than enough for everyone. I'm really grateful for that!

What are we watching? Well, we are coming to the end of the series 'You', which was more enjoyable than I expected. And we're on the last episode of 'Freud', one of the strangest shows I've ever seen, but also very unique and intriguing. Freud is displayed as a coke addict, which surprised me, but my husband says he really was into that drug. I didn't know since I don't know much about his life, but after looking up information through Professor Google, I found out it's true. The things you learn!

Another show we're watching on Netflix is Waco; a miniseries about the events of the 1993 Waco siege. Very captivating! Oh, and we just finished watching 'The Ten Commandments. I don't know how many times we've seen this movie but it just never gets old. A classic. Have you seen it?

Okay, that's more than enough blah, blah, blah... Let's get to the funny stuff. Enjoy the giggles and have a great day.

  1. Thanks for the laughs Martha. I am saddened by the Nova Scotia tragedy, the lives lost, shattered families.

    1. It is horrible, Christine! So devastating.

  2. I have been lucky that my hubby does the shopping because he is 66 and can go to the senior hour at 7 am. He gets everything, but some things had to be different brands. And for some unknown reason one can only get vanilla or chocolate ice cream. Freud sounds interesting. I want to see that now. Great collection of funnies. The doll heads cracked me up- dolls creep me out as it is. Have a wonderful week and stay healthy. XO

    1. That is great about your hubby. Mine is not quite there yet, so shopping has to be done during regular hours. There are line-ups now but it hasn't been too bad. I think you'll enjoy Freud. It is very different!

  3. Oh, the last three are INSPIRED! Glad to hear you're hanging in there, Martha! A couple of series I'm enjoying right now on PBS are "World on Fire" and "Baptiste."

    1. Interestingly enough, it was the first time I read anything from this author. She's a good writer.

  5. I have seen the Ten Commandments. Always enjoyable to watch it! I'll have to look at those shows you mentioned. I'm binge watching Netflix these days, LOL. I finished the 4th season of Greenleaf and I'm hoping the 5th season is around the corner though I don't think it is.

    I'm seeing the shelves at our stores stocked more these days. Paper products always remain elusive but pretty much everything else is well stocked. We find if we go early there is usually not a line to get into the store; at least here :)

    Loved all the cartoons!! We need these laughs to get through these times :)

    1. We definitely need some humour to get through this period. Thankfully, there is so much of it out there!

  6. Thanks for the chuckles Martha. Glad to hear you're well. We don't have lines at the store, most people are pretty good about leaving space between everyone too. But it is stressful just to be out as you say. I'm sure someone sells that doll head on Etsy!

    1. We have lines but because we're a small city, it's not that bad. People have been very patient and respectful, which is great. Be well!

  7. Stores here have been packed well since day one of this. And, one local store had banging good deals on produce, plus an extra ten percent off. I love the dinos!

    1. One of the markets I go to regularly is amazing with fresh produce. SO much to choose from. And they always have some great sales. Very grateful for all of it!

    2. Yeah, me too. Super grateful. No complaints. Tonight, Tim brought home the kind of bananas that we love and baby oranges. Super fun.

  8. loved the funnies ...omg dolls head for night lights, lol. We don't have lines where we shop here in the mountains and i'm pretty sure we will see those next time we go down to the 'city"... hope not. Everything seems to be normal for us - we still get out and walk and we were always kind of isolated anyway. i hope for those with businesses, sickness in the families ..i just wish this would end and things would get back to normal so people have an income. I have been watching Big Little Lies. and still bingeing on the 70's show ..and a few others, This is us, American housewife..(getting a little tired of it)...loved the movie Once upon a time in Hollywood - loved Outlander - caught up so far.

    1. Netflix has been keeping us satisfied so far. There is a lot of selection. We haven't subscribed to anything else and I don't think we will, although there are a lot of really interesting shows that we are missing. But we don't spend much time watching TV, so it's just not worth signing up anywhere else. I'd rather be outdoors and going on day trips.

  9. this is great that no shortage of supplies anymore dear Martha

    i agree that heading for grocery robotic ally had made it annoying as mood and fun part is lacking yet what is good that we can still go for shopping at least

    i can see you are watching few shows at a time instead of just one which sounds good idea ,we finish one before starting another and then miss one that ended soon lol ,now i will give it mind :)

    i so enjoyed funnies specially the quarantine days at home are hilarious ,thank you for smiles
    sending you lots of best wishes and stay healthy my freidn!

    1. Grocery shopping isn't fun like it used to be but I'm grateful that we have everything we need. And I'm especially grateful for the people working hard to make it all possible for us. We used to watch one show at a time but lately we've started watching two or three at the same time. Makes it much more interesting!

  10. It seems that stores are much better stocked now, although you do need to allow more time for the weekly shop!

    Great funnies again.

    All the best Jan

    1. It's worth watching. It's only 6- episodes long, so you can move onto something else fairly quickly!

  12. Ah yes, glad for the humor even if it is a day late. Thanks, Martha. There a couple here that are really funny.

    1. It's not too bad. Not an award-winning show, but enjoyable enough.

  14. Haha! Of course I loved the dinosaur one! I'm glad to hear that you and George are hanging in there. We started watching a second Netflix series "Medici." We've only watched two episodes, but I love it! Terry suggested it because I love Florence so much and it's set in that gorgeous city.

    1. I'll have to look that up, Louise. I'm always interested in new shows. We don't watch a lot of TV but we like to sit a bit and pass some time.
