    Since I Turned Forty...

    Since I’ve turned forty. Lots of things have happened since I’ve turned forty. I have learned to accept that I am physically not perfect and that no one really is. Okay, so things have headed south but my smile hasn’t. No longer do I judge a book by it’s cover and what...

    An Innocent Day Out...Or So I Thought..

    It seemed like a good idea when I mentioned it. I like to set myself a challenge each year, push myself a bit and go out of my comfort zone. This particular year I decided I wanted to visit a nudist camp. Discussing it with my hubby I found him to be up for it (in more ways than...

    I do not know why though these grown men on

    here want to talk to young teenage girls. Could it be because they are less than well endowed?

    Blissfully Unaware

    The weather is warm. The air is still. There is a hint of fresh cut grass in the air. Sam Cooke's, "Darling You Send Me" floating gently from my speakers to my ears. I am driving, while singing along. A girl on my mind who the thought of makes me simultaneously warm, fuzzy, and...

    You Have To Laugh

    It is a bit of a standing joke amongst my friends and I, that I seem to attract the older man. I have no idea why, they have no idea why but yesterday was no exception. On previous girlie weekends away, it has been me that the older man has made a beeline for, much to the girls...

    In the Darkest of Hours...

    Humour is, by definition, a funny thing. It can be used with as much cruelty as a rack and pair of thumbscrews, or to lighten the deepest of pain. Having seen many people in times of despair, sudden loss or facing the inevitability and then realisation of loss, and worked...

    I can't help but laugh when life gets me down, After a while of going through a rough time I have to laugh because it is so absurd when one thing after another seems to go wrong.

    Once upon a time in the deepest darkest days of

    winter, a little bluebird fell to the snow-covered ground, frozen almost to death. He lay there on the snow, trembling and shivering, certainly doomed - when through the vagaries of fate, a bull walked past, and dropped a humongous wet pile of bullshit right onto the bluebird...

    Having a good sense of humour will do a lot

    for you in the long run. It keeps depression at bay, and makes you able to remain standing when others around you have fallen.

    Laughing At All The Wrong Things.

    I like to laugh at all the things that go wrong in my life. I don't seem to have a limit. It can put people off. Sometimes, when I make jokes about myself and hardships I've endured, people look like they're afraid to laugh. Does anyone else have that experience?

    Life can be tough sometimes.

    However, I also think we all have a tendency to take life too seriously and obsess about things that, in the larger scheme of things, might not be all as important as we make them out to be. I feel like having a sense of humor helps keep things in perspective. I also don’t...

    A woman was talking today.

    ..she said her son's lip was irritating him and itching because he is growing facial hair. Then stated that her lip was itching and she thought it was out of sympathy! It took EVERY OUNCE of self control not to ask, if maybe she was growing a mustache as well!

    I don't take very many things seriously

    and I think that helps, but I also have a very dry, sometimes sarcastic sense of humor. I think that definitely helps me find humor where others around me don't.

    When in an absurd, incredible,

    impossible situation, I tend to smile or laugh out loud. The degree of guffaws is dependent on the absurdity--the more absurd the situation I find myself in is, the more I laugh. The guffaws flow when I start psyching myself up, "Muster the Rohirrim!" and then I often find...
