Is This The Cutest Thing You’ve Ever Seen?

5 Oct

Tory Boy sent me this story: a baby seal, rejected by his family.  Not sure if he’s trying to tell me something.

The loneliest seal in the world: This rare brown furred pup was spotted on the beach at Tyuleniy Island, Russia

The Birthday That Keeps On Giving

5 Oct

If I hadn’t already awarded last week’s CoWAbunger, I’d have to give it to Nancy for her prescience:

Phase 2: In which Linda declares that her birthday WEEK started yesterday . . . with 6 more days to celebrate.

How right could one person be?

On Monday I had a visit from a friend in the morning, who brought me these:

There’d have been a lot more to show you but Spud insisted on being allowed to eat one.

In the evening, another friend came with a lovely set of toiletries, assuring me no offence was intended.

Then yesterday, yet another friend, with these:

The last time I did so well for flowers, a small person came out of me.

I also received an email telling me I had won two tickets to a comedy night with – what did I do to deserve such blessings? – a free buffet.

I love the saying, Some days you are the statue; some days you are the pigeon.  Today, I am definitely a pigeon.

Thanks To Cindy for this one.


If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it  in for a newer model. I’ve got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a  little dull.  But that’s not the worst  of it. 

My headlights are out of focus and it’s especially hard to see things up  close.

My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.

My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.

It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently.

But here’s the worst of it: almost every time I  sneeze, cough or sputter, either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires.
