Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, blogging pals. And happy December, too! We are fast approaching the end of another year. What have you been up to? Not the whole year, just last week! We took a day trip to Montreal and that's always fun. We live in a small city right now but I've got a lot of big city in me. I adore being there and I'm always game to take a drive east to our hometown of Montreal or north to Ottawa. We're fortunate to be living only an hour's drive away from both areas, so getting there is easy.

Last week we watched the first part of season 5 of the series "Vikings". We'd been eagerly waiting for the latest episodes on Netflix and when they finally showed up, we dove right in. I enjoy the story but not the violence. When that's going on, I totally tune out. I turn away and sometimes I even block my ears. I cannot stand watching any type of violence or cruelty, especially when animals are involved! Does anyone else do this? Or are you glued to the scenes?

Anyhow, I've got a very busy day ahead, so let's get right to the funny stuff. I hope the images make you laugh and I wish you all a wonderful week ahead.

  2. Good morning, Martha! Yes, I look away, or even hide behind my hair or a pillow. We just put up the tree last night (real one) and Murphy's eyes were as big as saucers. He was a kitten last Christmas but let's just say we put unbreakable ornaments near the bottom. -Jenn

    1. HAHA! I know all about cats having eyes as big as saucers. It means trouble is brewing! Our cats are curious for a couple of days and then - thankfully - they lose interest in the tree.

  3. Oh, those poor terrorized ornaments, LOL! "Challenge accepted," indeed! We watched the first 2 or 3 seasons of "Vikings" but once Ragnar was gone from the series, we lost interest. And yes, it is terribly violent. But enjoy!

    1. I must agree that the show is nowhere near as good as it was when Ragnar was in it. But we've invested so much time into it that I can't help but want to keep going!

  4. No Christmas is complete without Krampus! If there were a Krampus for cats, perhaps our Christmas trees would be safe.

    I don't know if the three spirits would be enough to set the likes of Musk or Bezos straight. Perhaps three antitrust special prosecutors.

    Dare I say that a show called Vikings seems like an odd choice if you don't like violence? It's sort of what they were known for back in the day.

    1. I agree with you! I'm not sure three spirits would be quite enough to set them straight. And it is odd that I'd be watching this show. But it's not all violence. The story is quite good, so I just tune out the parts I don't like.

  6. The last one is on point.

    I'm putting together a cat post. I borrowed the challenge one, and I borrowed two from Deb today. I may have a post yet.

    1. Best strategy. I "borrow" all the time! How else can we put together decent posts?

  7. Yes, Christmas Carol is definitely an anti Bezos tract!

  12. The Christmas tree with cats hit the mark. The trees are doomed.

  13. Glad you got to go to the city. I have watched many shows with my eyes closed like The Sopranos and The Blacklist. Great bunch of funnies. I still haven't put ornaments on the tree for fear of my newbies. XO

    1. HAHA! You and me both. I can't tell you how many things I've watched with my eyes closed. I just don't want to view that. I hope the newbies behave! xo

  14. Outlander is one of the few shows where its violence is a bit too much for me. It basically became torture porn

    1. We watched that one, too. That was very violent, as well. I kept my eyes closed through it all!

  15. I don't watch violence either. I prefer something that makes me laugh :)

  16. Haha. I need a service bell for a hanukah wreath I have. Love that.
    It's good to see you're still here and doing well. Have a wonderful season.

    Thanks for the chuckles. Last one made me laugh
