Hee Haw #humor, Grand Ole Opry #SWF, & Friendly Fill-ins

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

 

Purrs and howdys, Kittens & Dawgs! Last Friday, we returned to Nashville for the day. When I think of Tennessee’s capital city, I think about a big part of my childhood days spend in front of the TV watching the popular show Hee Haw.  Today’s Friday Sillies edition I thought I’d reminisce a bit with some of these giggles and hopefully bring a smile to your face.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For all you photo enthusiasts and Skywatch Friday fans, I’m sharing an iPhone8 capture from the end of last month on a gorgeous blue sky day in Nashville, Tennessee. There is just a hint of autumn color in the tops of the trees in the foreground of the Grand Ole Opry.

 

What are you celebrating?

Today, I Celebrate The Small Things like having a solid relationship with DH. I found out this week that some dear friends who I never thought this would happen to are divorcing. They are wonderful people and I hate this like crazy. I don’t know the situation and the details aren’t  important but we hope to continue being friends with each one regardless. No judgment here just love and prayers.

This has been one of those weeks where I know I have more reason to celebrate but because of things going on around us then it’s hard to cut through the fog to notice these blessings and giving thanks for all the small things.  That being said, I am truly blessed and am thankful for God’s goodness because without Him I don’t know how I’d make it through each day.

 

Might I impose on y’all one more time to say a special prayers our children? Something new with DD#1 happened this week, then as you may know DD#2 is moving to Portland Maine on Nov. 1st without housing or job. Her husband’s employer (Carmax) is opening soon up there and he’s been transferred to there. No company provisions are being made for their living arrangement or move.  They set up a GoFundMe account hopefully to offset some of their expenses. It never hurts to ask for help. Blessings to each of you!

 

 

 

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

 

  1. If I was a ghost, I would haunt the meanest, wickedest people.
  2. I always push circumstances from my thoughts when something looks or sounds bad because giving a place in my mind for these things is exhausting emotionally and physically and leads to sickness.
  3. My favourite scary story is …hmmm, I don’t know. I don’t believe I have a favorite.
  4. I will be so glad when the clouds hanging over those I love dissipate and sunny blue skies return which in turns make my life happier, too.

 

 

 

 

That’s a wrap for now but I hope to see you on the dance floor with songs about cars or trucks on Mondays Mewsic Moves Me!  X💋X💋, Cathy!

Funny Animal Pictures #FridaySillies

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

 

Purrs and hooowdys, Kittens & Dawgs!  Another week bites the dust. This is DH’s off Friday, so I’m sharing nothing but sillies with you. I hope you today’s contributions make you giggle a lot with these Friday Sillies!

 

A blonde and a redhead have a ranch. They have just lost their bull. The women need to buy another, but only have $500. The redhead tells the blonde, “I will go to the market and see if I can find one for under that amount. If I can, I will send you a telegram.” She goes to the market and finds one for $499. Having only one dollar left, she goes to the telegraph office and finds out that it costs one dollar per word. She is stumped on how to tell the blonde to bring the truck and trailer. Finally, she tells the telegraph operator to send the word “comfortable.” Skeptical, the operator asks, “How will she know to come with the trailer from just that word?” The redhead replies, “She’s a blonde so she reads slow: ‘Come for ta bull.'” (joke credit source)

 

 

 

That’s a wrap for now but I hope to see you on the dance floor for freebie mewsic pick on Mondays Mewsic Moves Me!

Love #humor, Patriotic Farmhouse #SWF, & #Friendly-Fillins

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Purrs and hooowdys, Kittens & Dawgs!  Yesterday, in my nostaglic post series, Throw Back Thursday I revisited that popular 70s singluar comic strip, “Love is”. Today, I’m sharing the funnier side of love to bring you, your weekly dose of laughs with my Friday Sillies contribution . Enjoy!

 

Funny Love One-liners

 

To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little. To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all. Source link

 

You know that tingly little feeling you get when you like someone? That’s your common sense leaving your body. Source link

 

I have never understood why women love cats. Cats are independent, they don’t listen, they don’t come in when you call, they like to stay out all night, and when they’re home they like to be left alone and sleep. In other words, every quality that women hate in a man, they love in a cat. Source link

 

 

 

Reader’s Digest Love Humor

Tailored Made

My husband and I couldn’t decide which jacket to buy our granddaughter, so we asked the young salesman.

“If you were buying a jacket for your girlfriend,” I said, “what would you get?”

“A bulletproof one,” he said. “I’m married.”

 

All Dolled Up

A husband and wife had been married for 60 years and had no 
secrets except for one: The woman kept in her closet a shoe box that 
she forbade her husband from ever opening. But when she was on her deathbed—and with her blessing—he opened the box and found a 
crocheted doll and $95,000 in cash.

“My mother told me that the secret to a happy marriage was to never 
argue,” she explained. “Instead, I should keep quiet and crochet a doll.”

Her husband was touched. Only one doll was in the box—that meant she’d been angry with him only once in 60 years. “But what about all this money?” he asked.

“Oh,” she said, “that’s the money 
I made from selling the dolls.”

 

 

Love jokes

What’s the difference between love and herpes?

Love doesn’t last forever.

Why shouldn’t you marry a tennis player?
Women Love Poems
AT WORK…
Michael: Why you white guys always so happy?
Casey: Because I make love to my wife every morning before work.
Michael: Say whaaat? You get her to make love EVERY morning? How do you do that?
Casey: It’s easy, I just say a poem, women love poems and will fall for them all the time.
Michael: Ok, what kind of poem can you say to make her make love every morning?
Casey: I say, “blonde hair, blonde hair, eyes of blue, I love to wake up and make love to you.
Michael: HAHAAA she falls for that?
Casey: yes you should try it.
NEXT DAY TYRONE COMES IN WITH BLACK EYE FAT LIP AND A TOOTH MISSING…
Casey: What happened to you?
Michael: Well, I said a poem to my wife and she didn’t like it.
Casey: She didn’t like it??? What did you say?

Michael: Nappy head, nappy head, eyes like a frog, if I could roll your fat ass over I would do you like a dog.

 

 

 

For all you photo enthusiasts and Skywatch Friday fans here is this week’s contribution, a Patriotic Farmhouse and more beautiful blue skies!

 

What are you celebrating?

 

Today, I Celebrate The Small Things  in life such as taking a daytrip to Nashville with DH that I shared with earlier in the week on Cathy Chats. You don’t have to have a lot of money to enjoy being with the one you love.  The biggest expense was gas. It was great to explore a new mall, try Jeni’s ice cream (Milkiest Chocolate & Salty Caramel get two thumbs up), and Five Daughters Bakery donut shop (sorry to report this shop didn’t meet our expectations earning two thumbs down).

I celebrate the generousity of DH. Earlier this week he bought me three blouses and then just the other evening he came home with a cute button down mini skirt. It’s not super short unless you’re 5’10”. I haven’t tried it on yet but it’s appears longer than most of my skirts. Yeah, I like ’em short and does DH. 🙂

I’m celebrating a small life’s obstacle removed and hope it never returns to trip things up again.

I’m celebrating being giddy. Yeah, I have a very good reason for being especially happy but can’t reveal that mews just yet. Hopefully before long I can let the Cathy out of the bag and share it with you! 😉

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

  1. October is the perfect time to have lots of hot chocolate loaded with marshmellows!
  2. Halloween is not my favorite holiday, in fact, I can totally do without it…except for the candy. I’m all for the candy!
  3. Every October, I  begin planning for Thanksgiving and Christmas, stocking the pantry with menu items, figuring out greeting cards, and presents for family.
  4. My experience with the supernatural world is limited to TV shows and movies. The only time I had a weird encounter is when a duplicate necklace appeared along side mine. I picked it up and examined it making sure my eyes weren’t tricky me, then layed it down but when I went back to get it to show DH it was gone. Was it a dream or it did it really happen? That will be a mystery I’m sure to not solve.

 

 

 

That’s a wrap for now but I hope to see you on the dance floor for freebie mewsic pick on Mondays Mewsic Moves Me!

Vintage Pin-ups & Giggles

Purrs and hooowdys, Kittens & Dawgs! While I’m despensing the bulk of today’s meme participation, I decided I couldn’t let the week pass without sharing a weekly dose of laughter with Vintage Pin-ups & Giggles. Enjoy!

Oh, yeah I have this job! 🙂

A while back I stumbled on this image while looking for vintage dancers.

If this image made you smile, then you’ll gonna enjoy  30 Cats Who Swear They’re Pin Up Girls. I decided to not share some of the more risqué pin-ups but will leave it up to you to decide to visit or not. 😉

 

 

 

Next Friday, I’ll run at full capacity with Friday Fun Stuff and so I’ll leave you with these vintage hotties singing but I invite you back for a double feature post with freebie mewsic pick on Mondays Mewsic Moves Me and Battle of the Bands!

Smartphone #humor, Victorian Patriotic Home #SWF, #Friendly-Fillins, & #BoTB results

Purrs and hooowdys, Kittens & Dawgs!  The new iPhone 8 launches today. YAY! Right? NO! I admit not everyone is ecstatic about this news but I am because we’ll soon be proud owners. Apple makes incredible phones. Ours are four years old and work extremely well considering all things but…we’re experiencing serious battery issues. In fact, mine drained completely down one day leaving me without communications while away from home and DH. That’s scary. Anywho, today Friday Sillies contribution I’m sharing smartphone humor with you. Enjoy!

 

 

 

I’m gonna link up later in the weekend, hopefully, with Sunday Sillies and if you’re not on Facebook but thinking about it then you might want to read this, Should I Really Join Facebook?  Heck, I’ll save you the trouble of skipping away from my site.

When I bought my iPhone, I thought about the 30-year business I ran with 186 employees, all without a cell phone that plays music, takes videos, pictures and communicates with Facebook and Twitter. I signed up under duress for Twitter and Facebook, so my seven kids, their spouses, my 13 grand kids and 2 great grand kids could communicate with me in the modern way. I figured I could handle something as simple as Twitter with only 140 characters of space.

My phone was beeping every three minutes with the details of everything except the bowel movements of the entire next generation. I am not ready to live like this. I keep my cell phone in the garage in my golf bag.

The kids bought me a GPS for my last birthday because they say I get lost every now and then going over to the grocery store or library. I keep that in a box under my tool bench with the Blue tooth [it’s red] headset I am supposed to use when I drive. I wore it once and was standing in line at Wal-Mart talking to my wife and everyone within 50 yards was glaring at me. I had to take my hearing aid out to use it, and I got a little loud.

I mean the GPS looked pretty smart on my dash board, but the lady inside that gadget was the most annoying, rudest person I had run into in a long time. Every 10 minutes, she would sarcastically say, “Re-calc-u-lating.”

You would think that she could be nicer. It was like she could barely tolerate me. She would let go with a deep sigh and then tell me to make a U-turn at the next light. Then if I made a right turn instead. Well, it was not a good relationship…

When I get really lost now, I call my wife and tell her the name of the cross streets and while she is starting to develop the same tone as Gypsy, the GPS lady, at least she loves me.

To be perfectly frank, I am still trying to learn how to use the cordless phones in our house. We have had them for 4 years, but I still haven’t figured out how I lose three phones all at once and have to run around digging under chair cushions, checking bathrooms, and the dirty laundry baskets when the phone rings.

The world is just getting too complex for me.

They even mess me up every time I go to the grocery store. You would think they could settle on something themselves but this sudden “Paper or Plastic?” every time I check out just knocks me for a loop. I bought some of those cloth reusable bags to avoid looking confused, but I never remember to take them with me.

Now I toss it back to them. When they ask me, “Paper or plastic?” I just say, “Doesn’t matter to me. I am bi-sacksual.” Then it’s their turn to stare at me with a blank look. I was recently asked if I tweet. I answered, “No, but I do fart a lot.”

P.S. I know some of you are not over age 70. I sent it to you to allow you to forward it to those who are. I figured your sense of humor could handle it. We senior citizens don’t need any more gadgets. The TV remote and the garage door remote are about all we can handle.

Love, Lucky

 

I nodded my head, smiling at the line… “Re-calc-u-lating!” because we poke fun at the little British lady navigating us when she tries sending us 2 miles out-of-the-way just to turn around. 😀

 

Next segment is for all you photo enthusiasts and Skywatch Friday fans. Here is this week’s contribution, a Patriotic Victorian Home with beautiful blue skies!

What are you celebrating?

Today, I Celebrate The Small Things  although this isn’t really small to me but God’s presence through the tough patches and the soothing effect that mewsic offers when turmoil engulfs my soul.

I celebrate the cloud artwork in the sky, the sun’s kiss on my skin and gentle breeze that brushes over me, a healthy body with two strong legs to walk a mile between appointments and the pain that follows because I know all is truly well.

One last thing I celebrate. It’s not as important as the other celebrations but I’m happy all the same for the successful upgrade to iOS11 on my iPhone 5s. It could’ve gone wrong so I’m celebrating. Keeping our devices updated is an essential and I’m surprised at how well it handles the new software. Apple products always blow me away!

 

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

  1. I would never be friends with someone who maliciously wish to harm me, my family, or friends. I will never entertain a relationship with the enemy and if I do not know the so-called friend’s initial intent then when his/her true face is known it ends immediately. I will pray for this person but trust again? Only with God’s direction will I give this person another chance.
  2. I will never refuse the prayers of others. In the words of my late MIL, “We need all the prayers we can get”.
  3. I have never been to the Pacific northwest but I hope one day that we can travel along the west coast highway. I, especially want to see the lighthouses dotting the shoreline.
  4. When it comes to my children, I would do most anything in my power/budget to help them but when it infringes on our well-being or compromises our financial obligations then I have to say no. We all need help once in a while but the brunt of THIS burden belongs to us and a child should NEVER use his/her emotional connection as leverage. That is wrong!

 

In closing, let me share the results of Sept. 15th BoTB, Total Eclipse of the Heart.

When I pulled together the violin, guitar, and panflute cover artists for this battle I knew instantly I preferred the haunting, romantic sound of the panflute best. The other instrumentals are nice but the panflute spoke to my heart earning my vote.

The final outcome…

Violin cover – 3
Guitar cover – 4
Panflute – 4

 

The winner… I don’t have one this round! 🙁 I’m happy the consensus liked the instrumental covers reflecting my own sentiments to not have to pick a cover vocalist over Bonnie Tyler (even though she wasn’t one of the choices).

This is Curious as a Cathy signing off with “Best of Panflute Instrumentals” collection.

 

Don’t forget to hit the dance floor with me freebie style on Mondays Mewsic Moves Me!

X💋X💋,

 

 

 

 

PS:  Beginning next Friday, I will skip this post every other week since DH is off work. It’s too much to play catch up on the following Monday and I encourage you to join my email subscription service (see side menu) to not miss the latest mews!
