Bonkers, A-Z Challenge

Interesting challenge Linda Hill has created for us in A-Z challenge.

I too can be a bit of a rebel for reason that fit only my purposes. So I come along side illegally as well to play when I can. You may to have good use of dictionary I fear as this goes on, at least for some of us.  Sometimes it drives me bonkers as I can’t think of anything to say, yet  I still want to play. You know there are many forms of bonkers other than how things are recently driving me. There is the TV series…

Cartoons, of course

Then there is candy…., don’t know that I have ever seen it.

And don’t let us forget the famous scientist….

But for me, bonkers is just out of control crazy with too many things happening at one time and I get in bonker overload.

But even if you find yourself in overloaded bonkers, there is always time to stop for a second and be kind. That slow down may be the very thing to get you out of bonker overload. So, always have kindness at the front of anything you may do. It could change your entire perspective.

Pug-amus Wisdom, Twitter Tale #128

Come one, come all as I tell you a tale

Of wisdom I gathered though I am frail

One concerning my masters who throw me in the cold

To do my business, good grief this really gets old

Will spring or warmth ever show their bright side?

I think not as I snuggle with blanky deep inside

 

Fun from Kat Myrman with this weeks Twittering Tales #128.

Remember to always be kind

Detective Tin

I am so excited to say I now have a new toy…my computer has not been replaced and man is it nice. I can open a new page in seconds instead of minutes. But I can say my old computer was the top of the line…11 years ago. So to christen it with love I will make my first post fun to help dispel the horrid weather we are still having with more snow this evening. I posted this picture a week or so ago to get ideas of a story and Shelley’s of Quaint Revival was the best. She and I are both kinda quirky so it fit my brain well. Enjoy and laugh along. If you have other short ideas about this picture, feel free to add in the comments. The object is to have fun and enjoy each others art, regardless of medium.

“You know,” muffled Officer Tin as his mouth was full, “if you would just hit the sky, we could catch this guy a lot faster.”

“Nope. Your the knot-head that was determined that I come along. You could have left the branch and me on the tree and we would have been fine.”

“I needed you help, you eye in the sky as it were.”

“Just because you wanted me to come does not mean I am going to help you look.”

“But you always help” exclaimed Officer Tin.

“Not today. I have a headache and you are not helping.”

“Well, the faster you help, the faster you can get home…but you will need a new branch, sorry.”

“Oh, good grief!”

“I think he went down in the valley,” shouted Office Tin spitting the branch to the ground.

“I see him,” the eagle muttered to himself. “Looks like Tin has help coming from the opposite direction as well. Oh, and there is lunch.”

“You have reinforcements coming on the other side of the valley.  Head straight and you will corner him off.”

“Thanks. Hey what is in you claws?”

“Lunch. You are own you on, kiddo. I am outta here.”

Hope my quirkiness brought you a smile on such a dreary day. And as I always close with reminders of kindness, remember during these stressful winter times, kindness is like the warming ray of sunshine and we all need some of that. So be kind.

An Evening Chuckle Before Bed

I saw this photo and chuckled out loud making Mimi wake from snoring as she snuggled under her blanket on the sofa and looking at me like something was alarming.  Our pets can so make us laugh so I am sending the first picture in honor of Shelley’s cats over at Quaint Revival. They always have interesting stories about us hoomans.

Hooman I need you assistance as this prehistoric creature bited me.

The other picture is my crazy dog Mimi trying to entertain herself tonight in negative temps and many inches of snow because she did not want to come in. She was jumping up hitting the leaning over evergreen. When she realized just how cold she was getting she came running in.

She already pulled the icicles off and ate those.

Yes our pets do entertain us from time to time. It is what makes them special to us. And as my closing always speaks of kindness and we are talking of our pets, I though I would share some of my favorite pictures of animals showing kindness. We could learn a lot from them.

 

And one more chuckle…animalkind9

Curiosity, #JusJoJan

We have all heard the phrase of “Curiosity Killed the Cat”. I don’t have a cat at the moment so when I looked for pictures on line for curiosity pictures of cats there are thousands, even ones that sadly lived up to the phrase above. But I did find the one below that I thought was awesome. I have even used that same look when someone says something to me deserved of that look.

Seriously???

Cats are endearing creatures, especially when kittens. The things they will do in exploring their world.

Then they become demanding rulers of the house and you become the slave. Although Mimi, my coon hound, pretty much has rule of the house and dogs too can have that same look of curiosity when studying something they are trying to figure out.

Really???

And then we spent millions of dollars on a robot and sent it to Mars to find the life we just knew was there and we named it “Curiosity” – Who da’ thunk.

As we chuckle over the funniest of animals and man’s great curiosity of “what’s out there” lets us come closer to home and remember to always be kind. Even animals understand kindness and use it when they know it’s needed.

Be the spark of someones sunshine for today.

Linda G Hill’s along with Pam’s prompt of Curiosity brings us our fun for another snow coming day. Stay safe and warm my friends.

It’s This Big… #JusJoJan #17

In trying to visualize to someone how big or small something is, we will often use our fingers…

img_20190117_143030
It was this long

While that may look really small, if you are describing the size of a mouse dropping found in your cabinet that is a BIG mouse. And using that method again, I don’t care if the snake is only that big…he is too big for me. Just sayin’.

Alrighty then, let’s think on things that we are told are really big, like the moon at 2,159 miles in diameter. That seems big but not compared to some other moons. Jupiter has the largest moon, Ganymede at 5,262 km. Those of you who live in the US, that is more than  3,629 miles so our moon does not seem not that big. Of Jupiter’s 79 moons, it is also credited with the smallest moon at 2 km equaling 1.25 miles. Now how in the world can you see something that small from a roaming satellite. Amazing.

I saw this picture I am enclosing today that I thought was fabulous. I don’t know the photographer but the tree seems to think our moon fits right in between it’s fingers. So I thought I would share.

Sizes are always relevant to your measuring device. Like guys that go fishing and tell stories of the one that got away.

This big

In the 70’s there was a quirky little figure with his arms spread wide showing you he loved you this much. The 70’s were the love generation but they just kinda forgot some of the other things that needed to go with that love…but I digress. It is the symbol of measurement I want to focus on. That symbol is still used today and will always remain true.

jesus open arms
He loves you this much

What an amazing measurement. Many songs have been written about this amazing amount of love. And even though we can not fully understand this amount of love, we can still measure out a reflection of this love by being kind to those who so desperately need it. Sometimes you may not even realize someone is hurting but your kindness may be the one thing that day that releases enough pain to be able to go to the next day. So remember to ALWAYS be kind.

Linda’s  Just Jot January prompt is being lead by John Holden of One Hand Typing. And that prompt is “inch”. And while I did not use the actual word I did measure it out. Come join in on the fun.
