A Twisted Christmas #BoTB Results with Some Friday Sillies


Merry Christmas, Kittens & Dawgs! Today is DH’s off Friday but I wanted to share the results of last week’s A Twisted Christmas #BoTB showdown featuring two Bob Rivers’ Christmas parodies. It was “Carol of the Bartenders” vs “Police Stop My Car”. This race ended in a tie and it was up to me to break it. Oh why do you put me in these situations, my sweet lovelies? After listening to the parodies again, I decided I like “Carol of the Bartenders” better. The lyrics are far better and more cleverly written than the other. So, there you have it, “Carol of the Bartenders” wins this round.  Here’s another hilarious parody by Bob River.



Earlier in the week, I read a hilarious second part feature posted by my good friend, Tom from Shady Dell Music & Memories and I encouarge you to check it out for a few more laughs.

I invite you to visit the official manager of BoTB, Stephen for a complete list of BoTBers.  Join me next Friday for the second monthly installemnt of Battle of the Bands and more fun stuff but don’t forget to hit the dance floor with me in “All Things Christmas” on Monday’s Mewsic Moves Me!




A Twisted Christmas #BoTB Showdown + Friday Fun Stuff Mashup #humor #CTST #fillins

Merry Christmas, Kittens & Dawgs! Can you believe it’s that time of the year again? Not me! I debated whether to pull together a post today but I thought why not. It’ll be great fun to roll together some Friday Fun Stuff with some sillies and a whole lot more including a funny BoTB showdown!

Today’s battle I’m using two different Bob Rivers songs and if you’re familiar with the songwriter then you know he adds a twist to classics that sure to make you smile or laugh out loud.



Ok, here’s the drill. Voting is open to everyone visiting. There is NO wrong vote, except if you DON’T vote. You can start by telling me in comments which songs gets your vote “Carol of the Bartenders” or “Police Stop My Car” and why (optional). If you enjoyed this battle, then I invite you to visit the official manager of BoTB, Stephen for a complete list of BoTBers.


Today, I’m playing alone with Lexa and her hostess in Celebrate The Small Things.

I’m celebrating the determination DD#2 shows in keeping us in her life. Sunday, she and DSIL Facetimed with us from a view overlooking Camden, Maine from Mt. Battie. It was gorgeous. The sun was setting as we talked, so we had to cut it short so they could hike back to the car while they had some light. Ain’t technology cool?

I’m celebrating having lunch with DD#1 on Monday. We had a lovely time. I hope we can do that again before the weather gets too cool, as I have to walk to meet up with her. Thankfully, she lives about a mile and a half from us, so it’s not a bad walk then there are some places near her we can grab something to eat. 🙂

I’m celebrating getting my chocolate (both milk and white chocolate) peanut butter balls (also called ‘Buckeyes’) and dark chocolate covered cherries made this week. DH says they are some of the best I’ve made, too. Yay, me!

I’m celebrating every day with Christmas mewsic. Yes, I’m beginning early but anytime I do anything Christmasy, I love to listen to mewsic.

I’m celebrating getting my handstamped Christmas cards off to a good start. I’ve nearly completed six. I am only sending these to family. I used to do them for everyone but poor returns forced me to scale back, but I enjoy doing what I do nonetheless.


What are you celebrating?


Switching gears, I’m rounding things out with these Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by the lovely, Annie and Ellen!

  1. I can’t believe Monroe Salt Works Pottery is still sold. More accurately, MSW Pottery went out of business 10-years ago. We discovered them while vacationing in Maine in 2004 and bought a bunch of their mugs. Luckily I found Peasley Pottery last fall online and the artist, Nancy, does a great job. We got two of her moose mugs for DD#2 and her husband last Christmas which they love!
  2. I have nothing on Craigslist.
  3. Going into December, the weather outside is NOT frightful. Seriously, we’re having some mild temps but that’s supposed to change next week and I’m not looking forward to that!
  4. My current weakness is homemade candy. I’m trying to not sample it as I make it but I cave every time. I really have to stop that!



DH was supposed to work but he had a floating holiday to use before mid-December, so he elected to take it today. Naturally, you won’t find me in Blogosphere. We have some fun planned but I’ll be by to see you soon. Mark your calender to join me next week for more Friday Fun Stuff including the results of this BoTB showdown! Also, don’t forget to hit the dance floor with me for “All Things Christmas” on Monday’s Mewsic Moves Me! 😉


#SundaySillies: #Selfies #humor


Good morning, kittens & dawgs! Are you a selfie kinda person?  I admit I am not a selfie person. Why? I’m paranoid. I don’t want my face plastered all over the internet (like I have to worry about that anyhow, right?), but I happily accept my eccentricities and avoid the strange glares. Let’s get our giggles on with Sunday Sillies #Selfies edition!

If I took selfies, I’d be like…


This is a public announcement…warning, if you must take selfies, do the world a favor and put your make up on first!


Baby be like, Whatcha doing there, Mom!

Funny-Selfie-new-5Don’t you have more pressing things to do, doc?

'This selfie craze is getting out of hand.'

Face it, not everyone is photogenic!

funny-guy-selfie-ugly-comicI think this is DD#2….

 Early photo-bombing days, also known as ancient drawings.


That’s all for now, folks. If you have giggles to share, then we’d love to see ‘em! Until next time, keep smiling and have a laughtastic week!

Friday Sillies #45 – ObamaCare Parody

Welcome to Friday Sillies!   The 5 o’clock whistle is not far away and then, the weekend begins! Golly, I remember those days when I waited on the edge of my seat at the office for that all magical hour to strike and even to this day, I get a similar giddiness because this is when I can truly unwind and relax. While we wait together, let’s enjoy the time laughing.


A few days ago…actually it was yesterday, my Alphabe-Thursday post reminded me of Rush Limbaugh. The one thing I love about Rush’s show is the parodies, which prompted me to do a little digging on YouTube. Although these are old issues, the parody is good for a laugh nonetheless.

Now, you wanna join the fun? Here are a few suggestions, you may want to consider…

    • Grab my Friday Sillies Blog Hop badge and display it on your blog or post. That is, if you want. I’m not gonna hold a gun on you.
    • Show me some love by FB share, Tweet, follow me… This isn’t mandatory, just something nice to do is all. I’ll be happy to do in like kind!  😀
    • Create a wacky post that’s sure to make us giggle – rib cracking videos, hilarious pictures, jokes, funny emails,…If it makes you laugh, share it! Please, keep humor clean and if you get a bit wild then post a warning.
    •  Finally, I’m leaving the linky open for a full seven days from Friday to Friday. Let the laughter begin now!

Hilary @ Feeling Beachie hosts Follow Friday Four Fill-In Fun . Each week, she supplies four blank statements for us to snag, fill-in, post, & link up on her blog. It’s great fun and a good way to meet other nice bloggers, like myself Hilary. *big grin* Hey, I’m nice, too, aren’t I?

This week’s statements she asks:

  1. I have no desire to ever return the workforce & that’s the truth!
  2. I love the smell of fresh biscuits baking and bacon frying in the early mornings because it reminds me of our early years of marriage when we would visit my DH’s parents. My sweet MIL always had these comfort foods for breakfast. What a treat!
  3. I wish that my stubborn belly fat would magicallymelt away!
  4. In one month I would LOVE to drop 10-pounds, but at this point I’ll take what I can get in the weight lose department.

I’m on a real roll this morning, I’m going to play along with Janet @ Friday Fill-Ins. This is a first in a very loooong time I’ve been fortunate to do this, so away we go. Here’s are her blank statements…

1. Well, ok, maybe if we can get debt-free, scrape ALL of our money together for several months then we can consider moving into a larger place. Oh yeah, and if the house prices or interest rates  don’t skyrocket. There’s a lot of ifs there, but I say ‘maybe’ is definitely a possibility.

2. I’m so smart, if Albert Einstein were alive then he’d ask me to explain his Theory of Relativity to him…okay…. that’s a stretch!

3. When I’m making home-made cookies or other goodies I get that good old fashion feeling, like I’m living the life of a housewife from the 50s. Totally retro,  huh?

4. Eating frequent small meals makes me feel  a bit healthier.

5. And frankly, I think it’s despicable how the US out sources food manufacturing. Read my lips, I WON’T BUY ANY FOOD ITEMS MADE IN CHINA & MEXICO! Further more, I’m obliged to tell anyone who’s willing to listen when I find a national brand such as Kellogg’s or Hershey’s who makes some of their product lines in Mexico or else where.

6. Liberal politicians are the root of all evil. But we can change all of this in November, if we stick together on this!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to watching either more of the Olympics or a good movie and, tomorrow my plans include simply chillaxing at home and Sunday, I want to I would like to take a drive along the lake & maybe take a few pictures before doing my weekly grocery shopping
