Marriage #humor plus Friendly Fill-ins & CTST

Good day kittens and dawgs! In honor of my parents 56th wedding anniversary I thought I share marriage giggles.Agoney 50 year anniversary 1







The below joke I found at an internet source and decided to change the anniversary year to match my parents’ and to remove a curse word. 😀

Once upon a time, a married couple like me, celebrated their 56th marriage anniversary with a lot of fun & flair.

They had become the ‘most infamous couple’ of the city for not having a single conflict during their period of 56 long years! Local newspaper editors too had gathered at the occasion to find out the secret of their well talked about “happy go lucky married life”.

Editor: “Sir, it is amazingly unbelievable. How did you make this possible? Please share your thoughts and experiences for the well-being of the society!”

Husband recalling his old honeymoon days said: “Well, we had been to Napa Valley for our honeymoon after marriage. Having selected the horse riding finally, we both started the ride on different horses. My horse was pretty okay, but the horse on which my wife was riding, seemed to be a crazy one. On the way ahead, that horse jumped suddenly, making my wife topple over. Recovering her position from the ground, she patted the horse’s back and said “This is your first time”!
She again climbed the horse and continued with the ride. After a while, it happened again. This time, she again kept calm and said “This is your second time” and continued.
When the horse dropped her the third time, she silently took out the gun from the purse and shot the horse dead!!

I could not resist & shouted at my wife: “What the heck did you do, you psycho! You simply killed the poor animal. Are you gone crazy?”
She gave a silent look and in a cool, composed posture, she said: “This is your first time”!!!
And, then after we have lived happily… No arguments, No quarrels, No pity fights!”

Husband concluded: “That’s it. We are happy ever after”.


Please share your funny post with me (and others) by leaving a direct link in comments. Now, I invite you to email me your giggles (funny picture, joke, video, song, …). If it makes you laugh then I want to see it! In the subject line say Friday Sillies and if I use it, then I’ll add a back link to your site.

Got laughs? Share your giggles!

Let’s continue the fun with Friendly Fill-Ins!

1FFBadgeMcGuffy Ann is hosting the Friendly Fill-Ins (click button to visit McGuffy) with Ellen from 15andmeowing. Every Thursday, she posts four fun and easy blank statements for us to borrow, complete, and post 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 wish one of the major networks would bring back Kiefer Sutherland as “Jack Bauer” in the TV series 24. I just loved, loved, loved that show!


(2) An act of kindness that I do often is prayer for others. I don’t know, if that’s an act of kindness or just an act of love.


(3) I still have the rocking chair my grandparents gave me from my childhood. (The rocker was hand-crafted by a great-uncle. He use to make furniture. I passed it to our oldest daughter, but it’s tucked safely in storage until she might need it. It looks a lot like the rocker below.)


(4) If I didn’t have my iPhone , I’d be completely lost. (Maybe not completely lost, but I’d feel terribly awkward without it.)



You’re invited to join the Friendly Fill-ins linky party!


I’m joining Lexa in Celebrate The Small Things. Here’s my list of celebrations!

I’m celebrating my parents’ 56th anniversary. They have proven that wiggling through the thorns of a relationship yields an abundant life of goodness together instead of apart. It’s easy to give up, but it takes work to keep a marriage working. I celebrate the difficult and the good years of my parents’ years because without either they wouldn’t have the understanding that they do today to offer the valuable lessons learned. We say impossible, God say’s I’m possible.

What are you celebrating?

See what others are celebrating this week below and if you want to join the linky, then visit Lexa!

Love Enough for a Lifetime by #ValerieGhent & more #music!

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! Recently, singer/songwriter, Valerie Ghent sent one of her music files for my enjoyment off her album Day to Day Dream and it I loved it. Today, I share with you her 2013 #1 iHeartRadio hit, Love Enough for a Lifetime.

Who is Valerie Ghent? Just for starters, Valerie is a native New Yorker with five acclaimed CDs. She’s toured with Ashford & Simpson and Debbie Harry and shared the stage with other notable artists like Iggy Pop, Defunkt, American soul musician Billy Preston, and American poet/Civil Right Activist, Dr. Maya Angelou. You read her full bio, here.

Valerie’s soft, sultry, bluesy sound appeals to my listening pleasure. Last year, she recorded a romantic, love song in Venice where she discovered family roots. Please listen to Beating In My Heart.


This song is on her album Muse with 10 other tracks. You know me, as much as I love the seductive slow numbers I’m nearly as passionate about music that makes me wanna boogie. Get to your feet with Supernatural Thing.


I hope you enjoyed Valerie’s songs. You can follow her on Twitter @ValerieGhent and Facebook @ValerieGhentMusic. Valerie’s music is available for purchase on her site, iTunes and Amazon. What mewsic are you listening to lately? I’d love to know what songs are moving you, so please feel free to tell me in comments. ?


That’s a wrap for this week. Thank you including me in your weekend. If you had a good time here today, then please invite your friends to stop in for a listen. It’s always nice to share with others, don’t you agree? What’s next, swing by tomorrow for my 2016 AprilA2Z Reflections post!


Have a songsational Saturday!  😉 

#HappyBirthdayAmerica edition

It’s so good to see you this morning, kittens & dawgs! Thank you for making me apart of your weekend. This morning’s music edition, I’d like to invite y’all to listen to two rock covers of our national anthem and vote for your favorite on #BOTB Star Spangled Banner Showdown ~ Spirit VS #MadisonRising.


I shared my#s-ART-urday photoart creation a bit early this week. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed with so many to-dos on my plate. Maybe I’ll be back into the swing of things next week or then maybe I won’t. Is this a sign that I need to step away for a week or two or three from blogging? Could be! Meanwhile, I’m gonna leave you with a few giggles and I hope your day is full of smiles!








What’s got you laughing? That’s a wrap for this week. Feel free to invite your friends to stop in for a listen. It’s a great feeling to share!  Don’t forget to join me on Monday Mewzik & Mewzings!

Saturday Songsuasion & Sillies #TheChrisBarron

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! I got a new follower recently who happens to be a singer. So, I checked out some of his music because frankly I was unfamiliar with him and that’s okay because I LOVE the discovery of new-to-me artists.


 Chris Brown is best known as the lead singer of the band Spin Doctors. What you maybe didn’t know is that long before he was that goofy guy in the hat on MTV, he was an even goofier kid with an acoustic guitar. Chris plays nifty chords on an old Gibson to masterfully crafted songs that are poignant yet wistful and funny, all the while singing in a manner that’s sweet and somewhat different from what you would expect if you only knew his hits, “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” and “Two Princes”. Live, his stage patter is almost as entertaining as his singing. A powerful story-teller, at once hilarious and thought-provoking, Chris sets up his songs with anecdotes from a life on the road, from opening for and encountering legends like the Rolling Stones to Polar expeditions. He says, “I don’t really think about what I’m going to say beforehand. I just say stuff and if it goes over well, I say more stuff like that later.” A founding member of a band that’s loved by millions of people the round world over, Chris’ solo shows have all the lyric poetry and singing virtuosity that Spin Doctors fans appreciate along with a range of expression and songwriting that will delight and surprise.
Well, I’m delighted to meet Chris. His music style definitely fits my ear. How about you? Here’s another album for your listening pleasure!


Is Chris Brown new to you, as he is to me? I hope you enjoyed his music as much I did and if you want to stay ahead of the game, then you can follow him on Twitter and Facebook.

Now for your weekly dose of medicine laughter. I have to warn you, it’s definitely habit-forming!

I spotted this on Facebook.

This past #WW, I shared a gnarled tree from the Blue Ridge Parkway that I captured and it inspired me to get creative.

A #fathersday tribute to my daddy #music

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! I hope all dads in Blogosphere have a special Father’s Day. I’m grateful that my daddy is still with me and for the sweet memories I have spent with him as a little girl. I dedicated this post to my daddy, as I Dance with my Father.


Luther Vandross is the author of this beautifully moving song. He wrote of his personal experiences with his dad who died when he was 7-years old from diabetes. He recorded it 2003, earning him Song of the Year and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. Although I love Vandross’ original cut, I decided to use Celine’s cover since a female voice spoke to my heart and best suited this tribute to my daddy.

#ComeBackToBed #TrentTomlinson

I’m still on my country music roll, kittens and dawg. I just can’t seem to shake it, but the picks that stick in my head are the ones that really put a groove in my soul.

Let me say something, unless a country artist has a ginormous name in the industry then chances are very good I won’t recognize newer talent. It doesn’t always mean I haven’t heard their music. It’s just I never paid attention before now and since I’m listening to iTunes Country station A LOT lately, then I’m taking note of the songs/artists I like.

For the most this morning’s artist has more old country twang to suit my taste, but he has a single that plays often that I really enjoy and that’s the purpose behind Saturday Songsuasion to share the new-to-me with you. Why not give a listen to Trent Tomlinson 2014 release Come Back To Bed.

It’s a good beat I won’t buy an entire Trent Tomlinson album, but THIS song? Yep, it has that taste of country rock making it a winner with this gal! How about with you, is it a winner?


What songsuasion is moving you?



In keeping with last week’s selfie humor…



Oopsie, you know you’re gonna be dead!


What’s making you smile this morning?


Linking with Claudia on s-ART-urday

Linking with Claudia for #s-ART-urday with Project 10! My photo-art creation is a mesh up of three original photos and the use of a Creative Market Anton Wicked Watercolor Area3 brush which was offered as a freebie recently.The short poetry piece is an original work, too. My inspiration for the boats in the sky comes from a photo DH did years ago of a double exposure of boats in the sky and I believe he took a picture at the same spot or very close to where I capture my own image of the boats.



That’s a wrap for this week. I hope you enjoyed your visit and I appreciate you including me in your weekend. Feel free to invite your friends to stop in for a listen. It’s a great feeling to share! What’s next? How about a little Monday Mewzik & Mewzings

3-for-1 Saturday Special: Songsuasion/Sillies & s-ART-urday #Westlife

Originally signed by Simon Cowell, the Irish boy band ~ Westlife sold more than 50 million records worldwide, but never found a stronghold in the USA until 2000 with their single hit, Swear It Again (Westlife 1999 album track 1). This band isn’t new-to-me, but isn’t all that familiar to me, either. While Googling songs about “queens”, this song popped up by them.


Queen of my Hearts, written by John McLaughlin, Wayne Hector, and Steve Robson became the band’s 9th UK number #1 single, staying at the top of the chart for one week.  If you like this song, then I invite you to listen to their entire album Westlife 1999 this morning on Saturday Songsuasion while you take a peek at my #s-ART-urday contribution.

#s-ART-urday project #5 This photo-art creation comprises two of my personal images ~ the moon and mountain landscape. I adjusted contrast and added a touch of grain texture. The poetry verse is something I composed to go with my artwork. The owl face image, I borrowed from Google and opted to use as an overly. To finish things off, I added a basic black frame and my copyright. My photo editor of choice is PhotoShop Elements.

I’ll share this little silly with ya…
