You Might Be A Blogger If...

In reading the many blogs I follow, plus visiting others that comment on those blogs, I noticed some of you wonder if blogging is right for you. And there are others who just lurk but never comment or have a blog of their own. And many wonder if they are a true blogger. Well, peeps, wonder no more.

If you can say ‘Yes’ to any of these, then you are an official blogger. And you lurkers and anonymous commenter’s out there, if you can answer any of these in the positive, then give it up and start your own blog. You are probably the most interesting person that has yet you be read.


You might be a blogger if...'ve ever secretly considered recording your friends for blog ideas. daydream someone really important will read your blog and offer you:
a book deal.
a column.
a host opportunity.
to name their newborn child after you. face motherhood embarrassment with a twinge of excitement knowing it's awesome blog fodder.

...your kids know what a blog is.'re living proof that truth is stranger than fiction. still feel a teeny thrill every time you click "publish".

...your girlfriends preface conversations with, "Don't put this on your blog, but..." feel like you've been blogging for a million+ years when it's really only been 10 months.'ve been made to feel dirty (and not in a good way) by search terms.

...spam comments are so complimentary you consider approving them.

...your reader dominates you. have cyber BFF's.

...your baby's first word was "blog". drink wine and Tweet. carry around a little notebook. are part of at least 4 social networks.'ve been bullied online.'ve spent 4 hours trying to get the spacing just right. feel devastated when you lose a follower. assume that follower died because it's the only logical explanation. have an alias.

...your alias sounds more natural to you than your own name. have blog envy. suddenly realize you should have paid closer attention to grammar in school. feel the urge to hashtag outside the Twitterverse #perfectlyhealthy #perfectly normal. know what "squee!" means.

And for those who want to become famous through blogging, here is a flow chart to help map your way.


You're Welcome!

A passenger in a taxi leaned over to ask the driver a question, gently tapping him on the shoulder to get his attention. The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove up over the curb, and stopped just inches from a large plate glass window.

For a few moments everything was silent in the cab. Then, the still shaking driver asked, "Are you OK? I'm so sorry, but you scared the daylights out of me.“

The badly shaken passenger apologized to the driver and said, "I didn't realize that a mere tap on the shoulder would startle you so badly."

The driver replied, "No, no, I'm the one who is sorry; it's entirely my fault. Today is my very first day driving a cab. I've been driving a hearse for the past 25 years."

Some Thursday Video's To Get You Through Till TGIF

One more day till TGIF.

Thursday is the time of the week that your ass starts to drag, so I thought I’d pass on a few videos to help you get through the day - and the night if you need it.

This one I can identify with. I would love to be...uh...better be careful of what I wish for here. I could be one on Rosie O’Donnell's, then all I would get is slapped around by a tongue.

Also, now that Michael Waltrip has tried to retire, maybe it's time he passed on his tiera to...

And what would a compulation of videos be without Rodney.

I can identify to this one like no other.  Sad!

Hang On Little Doggie


A lady was telling her neighbor that she saw a man driving a pick-up truck down the interstate, and a dog was hanging onto the tailgate for dear life.

She said if the pick-up truck driver hadn't been going so fast in the other direction, she would have tried to stop him.

A few weeks later, her neighbor saw the truck at the local Bass Pro Shop.

The pick-up truck driver is a local TEXAS taxidermist with a great sense of humor.

Taxidermists are a twisted lot anyway. And it is not a dog; it is a Coyote.

Can you imagine how many people tried to stop this guy?

I would so put this on my truck, too.

One says, "Beau, did you know that elks have sex 10 to 15 times a day?"

"Aw shit, Clevon..," says Beau, "and I just joined the American Legion!”

Tuesday Humor


I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in.

I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just assholes.

I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.

I've learned that you can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes. After that, you'd better have a big
weenie or huge boobs.

I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to others - they are more screwed up than you think.

I've learned that you can keep puking long after you think you're finished.

I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, unless we are celebrities.

I've learned that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades, and there had better be a lot of money to take its place.

I've learned that the people you care most about in life are taken from you too soon and all the less important ones just never go away.


A drunk staggers into a Catholic Church, enters a confessional box, sits down but says nothing. The Priest coughs a few times to get his attention but the drunk just sits there. Finally the Priest pounds three times on the wall.

The drunk replies, "ain't no use knockin, there's no paper on this side either."

And Finally:

Two women friends had gone for a girls night out. Both were faithful and loving wives, however they had been over-enthusiastic on the Bacardi Breezers.

Incredibly drunk and walking home, they needed to pee. So they stopped in the cemetery. They had nothing to wipe with, so one of them decided to take off her underwear and use them. Her friend however, was wearing an expensive pair and did not want to ruin them. She was lucky enough to squat down next to a grave that had a wreath with a ribbon on it, so she proceeded to wipe with that.

The next day, the husband of one of the women was concerned that his wife was still in bed hung over, so he phoned the other husband and said, "These girls nights have got to stop. I'm starting to suspect the worst. My wife came home with no panties!"

"That's nothing," said the other husband, "Mine came back with a card stuck to her a$$ that said, 'From all of us at the Fire Station. We'll never forget you.' "

Hope these helped you through the day.

Girl Scout Cookies

Murphy’s Lesser Known Laws

1. Light travels faster than sound, which is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

2. He who laughs last, thinks slowest.

3. Change is inevitable…except from a vending machine.

4. Those who live by the sword, get shot by those who don’t.

5. Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

6. The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there’s a 90% probability you’ll get it wrong.

7. If you lined up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them, 5-6 at a time, on a hill, in the fog.

8. If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.

9. The things that come to those who wait will be the things left by those who got there first.

10. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day, drinking beer.

11. Flashlight: A metal tube used to store dead batteries.

12. Definition: The shin bone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room.

13. A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.

14. When you go into court, you are putting yourself in the hands of twelve people who weren’t smart enough to get out of jury duty.

Here is some advice that could help with much of the Murphy's Law Syndrom:

Justice Sandra Day O'Connor said it best: "Before speaking out ask yourself whether your words are true, whether they are respectful and whether THEY ARE NEEDED in our civil discussions."

The military also has some Murphy's Law stuff, too:

Home Again - After A Windy Road Trip

                                   (Thanks Google - Not The Truck I Saw)

Well I made it home, and I am on where near as tired as I was last week. Just been reading and catching up on the mail.

It is still cold in NY with a slight drizzle and frozen snow on the ground. The temperature will get above 32 degrees for awhile, just enough to melt some of the snow. Then drop again and freeze the runoff. This causes the snow to freeze smoothly and looks like porcelain.

However, as soon as I crossed into NJ, the sun came out and stayed out the rest of the trip. But, when I stopped in Winchester, VA for the night, the wind was up. I walked over to the Texas Steak House and Saloon for dinner. On the way back the wind was blowing and gusting so hard I looked like a drunk walking across the parking lot.

Again, this morning, when I drove to the gas station across the street from the motel to load up, the wind was blowing so hard I had to turn my back to it. I had to hold on to my cap and, because my back was to the wind, I passed the same fart five times before the gas tank was full.

Then back on I-81, there was a tractor trailer on it’s left side. The wind had just flipped it over. And I had to stay up on the wheel (NASCAR term for really holding on and paying attention.) As long as I was driving between hills, the wind was manageable, but, if you have ever driven thought the Shenandoah Valley, you know that there are many miles of flat or down grade country land on both sides of the road. The wind gust will give you a thrill like a ride at the fair.

I tried to stay in the right lane as much as possible (not were I like to drive) so I could have maneuvering room when the wind moved the van over. Once I was in the left lane passing a tandem semi (two trailers) when we came out from the protections of a wind break and he almost jacked-knife. The wind gust was shaking his trailers and he was heading for the left lane. I was over half way past him so I stomped on the gas to get by him to give him maneuvering room, but he pushed me into the grassy medium. I thought I was gonna turn over, but turned to the left to get back under control, then I got back on the road as soon as I cleared his cab. I looked in the mirror and he was giving me a thumbs up and a head shake to let me know how close we came to making a boo boo.

After that, the wind seem to die down and I was able to cruse on back to the Big A (or the Big W as the case may be.)

There always seems to be something happening on these trips. Keeps the driving interesting. But now I am driving my easy chair. Later on I will post some cute and funny animal pictures. But right now…zzzzzzzzzz

Husband Down

A husband and wife are shopping in their local Wal-Mart.

The husband picks up a case of Budweiser and puts it in their cart.

“What do you think you're doing?” asks the wife.

“They're on sale, only $10 for 24 cans.” he replies.

“Put them back, we can't afford them.” demands the wife, and so they carry on shopping.

A few aisles further on along the woman picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket.

“What do you think you're doing?” asks the husband.

“It's my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,” replies the wife.

“So does 24 cans of Budweiser - and it's half the price.” he says.


Tuesday Musical Interlude - Kids Style

Who needs American Idol or America's Got Talent?

We have gifted, talented kids.

This is Jorge Narvaez and his daughter, Alexa.  I am totally in love with this little lady, but you can see that she is totaly in love with her dad.

I love how she just leans on her dads arm and sings her heart out.
