Husband and Wife #humor + Friendly Fill-ins

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Hello, Kittens & Dawgs!  It’s time for some laughs. Are you ready for a bit of Husband and Wife Humor?

I spotted the next piece on Facebook. A letter to the wife and her final say-so. 🙂

Dear Wife,
     I’m writing you this letter to tell you that I’m leaving you forever. I’ve been a good man to you for 7 years & I have nothing to show for it. These last 2 weeks have been hell. … Your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today & that was the last straw. Last week, you came home & didn’t even notice I had a new haircut, had cooked your favorite meal & even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. You ate in 2 minutes, & went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps. You don’t tell me you love me anymore; you don’t want sex or anything that connects us as husband & wife. Either you’re cheating on me or you don’t love me anymore; whatever the case, I’m gone.
Your EX-Husband

P.S. don’t try to find me. Your SISTER & I are moving away to West Virginia together! Have a great life!


Dear Ex-Husband,
     Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. It’s true you & I have been married for 7 years, although a good man is a far cry from what you’ve been. I watch my soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining & griping Too bad that doesn’t work. I DID notice when you got a haircut last week, but the 1st thing that came to mind was ‘You look just like a girl!’ Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can’t say something nice, I didn’t comment. And when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY SISTER, because I stopped eating pork 7 years ago. About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them, & I prayed it was a coincidence that my sister had just borrowed $50 from me that morning. After all of this, I still loved you & felt we could work it out. So when I hit the lotto for 10 million dollars, I quit my job & bought us 2 tickets to Jamaica But when I got home you were gone. Everything happens for a reason, I guess. I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won’t get a dime from me. So take care.

     Signed,  Your Ex-Wife, Rich As Hell & Free!

P.S. I don’t know if I ever told you this, but my sister Carla was born Carl. I hope that’s not a problem.

Let’s continue the fun with Friendly Fill-Ins with Annie and Ellen. Every 1FFBadgeThursday four fun and easy blank statements are posted for us to borrow, complete, and share on our site. The point is to simply have fun linking, reading, and meeting others who enjoy this sort of thing.

Here’s my response to this week’s fill-ins:

(1) I have seen cars and people on Broadway. You are talking about the street in my part of town, right? lol

(2) My Chinese zodiac sign is the Rat. Really? I hate rodents and the Chinese gave me this sign. Can I throw that one back and draw another, please?

(3) Celebrities seem to think I give a hoot what they believe and that they think their opinion matters to me.  However, this is what I’d like to scream at them every time I hear them promote their propaganda: “GET OVER YOURSELF! STICK TO WHAT I PAY YOU TO DO – ENTERTAIN ME NOT TICK ME OFF!”

(4) A beautiful sunny day is one that’s meant to be enjoyed outdoors doing something fun, like taking pictures in the mountains.

 

I adjusted my Friday posts. I now roll Skywatch Friday and Celebrate the Small Things together in a separate post each Thursday.  Let’s begin celebrating with Friendship Friday and Friday Features linky parties where you’re sure to make new friends and get lots of inspiration!

That’s a wrap for now, but if you like mewsic then I invite you to come back for Saturday Songsuasion. Until next time, have a fototastic weekend!

More Hearing Problems for Laughs + Friendly Fill-ins

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Hello, Kittens & dawgs!  Last week, I shared Hearing Problems humor with ya.  Did you know ear problems have plagued me all of my life? It’s true. When I was a child it was far worse than it is now but the last three weeks my right ear is somewhat blocked (it drains, too) making it challenging to hear.  It’s doing better but I’m not out of the woods yet. I thought I’d continue the laughs with More Hearing Problems for Laughs.

Here’s my response to this week’s fill-ins:

 

  1. Sometimes the cold makes me feel old.
  2. With the return of spring weather, it makes me feel young.
  3. I have to MAKE myself STOP eating the wrong stuff if I want to lose the post-Christmas weight.
  4. Every other Friday off from work is DH’s new schedule and today is his first Friday off, too. Yipee!.

I adjusted Friday’s post. I now roll out Skywatch Friday and Celebrate the Small Things on Thursdays. Let me ask.

What did you think of having all of my Friday memes tied together with my Friday Sillies edition or was it too much?

Do you like the way I’m doing it now with the two posts or would you like for me to go back to the way I did it?

Let’s begin celebrating with Friendship Friday and Friday Features linky parties where you’re sure to make new friends and get lots of inspiration!

I may be slower than usual to make my rounds.  DH and I have time together today.  Who know how our day will unfold, what we will do, or where we might go. 🙂 That’s a wrap for now but I’m gonna leave you with a little more comic relief that Ramona from Create with Joy shared Monday.

 

Please join me tomorrow for  Saturday Songsuasion. Until next time, have a fototastic weekend!

Hearing Trouble + Friendly Fill-ins

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Hello, Kittens & dawgs! Whoo-hoo, it’s Friday, Friday! The weekend is here at last.  For a few weeks, I’ve had a lot of trouble with my ears. I’m experiencing the whole stuffy, I can’t hear anything, will you speak louder kinda thing and it’s driving me nuts.  I’m doin’ some better but I don’t have my hearing at 100%. The good thing is I decided to use my impaired hearing for today’s inspiration to make you laugh with  Hearing Trouble humor!

Can anyone tell me who the artist is of this cartoon?

 

 

Let’s continue the fun with Friendly Fill-Ins with Annie and Ellen. Every 1FFBadgeThursday four fun and easy blank statements are posted for us to borrow, complete, and share on our site. The point is to simply have fun linking, reading, and meeting others who enjoy this sort of thing.

Here’s my response to this week’s fill-ins:

(1) My guiding word for 2017 is aspiring. While I do not want to set resolutions, I do have certain goals I’m aspiring toward.

(2) Iaeger High School/Powell High School class reunion. What’s with the two high schools you ask. I spent most of my years at IHS and when I got married the summer of 1979 I was a senior at PHS. 🙂 And, no I have not attended either class reunion.

(3) Truth be told I am superstitious about nothing. Seriously, I don’t believe in bad luck.

(4)  Lately, I have been a bit preoccupied playing with the online site AutoDesk Homestyler. This sort goes with question one because one of my goals for 2017 is to be in a new-to-me house.  It’s fun thinking about the way I would like for my new future home to look but I know if we get a house that’s on the market then chances are slim it will look like what I have in mind.  That’s okay, though.

 

Hopefully, by now you know I made a change to my Friday posts but if not and you’re looking for my Skywatch Friday and Celebrate the Small Things contributions, I’m now sharing those on Thursdays. Let’s begin celebrating with Friendship Friday and Friday Features linky parties where you’re sure to make new friends and get lots of inspiration!

That’s a wrap for now, but if you like mewsic then I invite you to come back for Saturday Songsuasion. Until next time, have a fototastic weekend!

All Things Vintage: Snoopy and the Peanuts’ Gang Creator Charles Shultz #AprilA2Z #BoTB results

Good-morning, kittens and dawgs! First thing let me make a quick announcement. The winner of April 15th BoTB is The Mills Brothers by an overwhelming 11 to 3! Their tally included my vote. Their harmonies and rich tones transported me in time.

In today’s edition of All Things Vintage, I’m sharing with you my all-time favorite cartoon character, none other than the beloved beagle Snoopy and the Peanuts’ Gang Creator Charles Shultz!
Snoopy Stages

Charles Shultz (1922-2000) was an only child. As a child, he advanced two-half grades in school. He developed an introverted personality no doubt due to the age difference of his high school peers making him a shy and isolated teenager.

Shultz loved to draw, especially his dog Spike who did rather unusual things such as pins and tacks. He sent one of his drawings to Ripley’s Believe It or Not that published in 1937 with the caption “A hunting dog that eats pins, tacks, and razor blades…” under the pen name “Sparky” his childhood nickname.

He served in WWII for two years fighting in the infantry in Europe, then after he returned home in 1945 he became an art teacher in Minnesota. Prior to his draft, he subscribed to art correspondence classes. In the late 40s, Shultz first cartoon publications Lil’ Folks. This series was the forerunner to The Peanuts’ Gang.

Drawing inspiration from his experiences and people he knew, he created his characters. “Charlie Brown” was Charles Shultz, “Snoopy” his dog, Spike, Linus and Sherman good friends of Shultz, Peppermint Patty a cousin on his mother’s side, and the Little Red-head Girl was an art instructor he proposed who turned him down. Chaplin’s quote I used Wednesday reminds me of Shultz. He used his artist ability and humor to the truth at least in part.

Now, I wanted to share my favorite Peanuts’ gang member, Snoopy, and his many faces.
