Friday, May 12, 2017


On this not-so-happy Friday there is a garage sale going on at the rear of my house, Judy and I are looking forward to a quiet but feastive (yes, I did spell that the way I meant to) evening to celebrate her birthday and people are asking "why aren't we rioting in the streets?"

In relation to what's been going on in Washington this week I can only thank a Roman dramatist named Plautus, who in the second century BC must have been looking far into the future.

He coined the term "tragicomedy".

Be that as it may, today is Friday and it is my job to try to lighten the mood so let me begin.

I hope you feel a tad better now and that you'll always remember to keep right on laughing.

It doesn't matter if people stare at you.

Now I hereby decree that you all get out there and have a wonderful weekend.

Here, kitty-kitty . . .



  1. You've got some good ones here; at least I was laughing out loud. I especially like the photography poster. So true. I'd like to hold a garage sale but I hate doing that. I don't mind stopping at one, but I don't want to put one on myself. Too damn much work! And then there's always the guy who picks up an item you've got marked at $10. He says, "I'll give you $5." You say, "No, but I'll take $8." He says, "How's about $5.50?" You say, "Can't do that, but I'll take $7.50." Then he scowls and says you're trying to rip him off and he walks to his car and roars off. Aargh!

  2. Oh, I meant to add that the item you had marked at $10 was really worth $50!

  3. May all your junk be other men's treasures!

  4. Good grief! We had a garage sale on Judy's birthday?

  5. Best wishes to SWMBO. Hope the sale was a success.

  6. Being Canadian. I like Canadian riot.

  7. Happy birthday to your half and don't let the News get in today's way...

  8. These are great. You got me laughing. I especially like the second one. It's not only funny, it's true!

  9. And unfortunately we've got no shortage of stupid people out there!
