Of icicles, shots and cats.

.

Our resident projectile has melted halfway, split and refrozen.

.

.

47 inches and still anxiously awaiting an unsuspecting red squirrel to wander by.

.

.

In other news…. my husband received his first Covid vaccine shot this week. Yay! No side effects other than a slightly sore arm for a day or two, though we’ve heard most people are experiencing flu like symptoms after the second shot.

Shots.

.

.

Sorry, that’s where my mind went.

.

.

Lord Dudley Mountcatten is starting to get used to having his picture taken.

.

.

But that doesn’t mean he enjoys it.

Yikes. If looks could kill…

Time Traveler Part 4

.

Bet you didn’t know there are so many words added to the dictionary every year did you?

.

.

What… you don’t care? Then it’s probably better if you skip to the next blog.

.

.

Lie in. The British phrase for staying in bed past the time you were supposed to get up. Personally I’d like to have a lie in till Covid is a thing of the past…. but that would probably require more pajamas than I currently own.

.

Miniseries? This is 1963. I thought Roots was the first.

.

.

Phat. I seem to remember that term from my misspent youth. Pretty Hot and Tempting. Though when I searched for a meme…. I got this.

.

.

Captain Kirk would be so pleased.

.

Say it isn’t so.

.

I dealt with the toilet paper shortage.

I survived the run on flour.

But the newest Covid related tragedy might just tip me over the edge.

.

.

Yes, boys and girls…. our fettuccini Alfredo is about to put a bigger dent in our wallets.

.

.

God damn you Corona virus! Isn’t it enough you’ve made a trip to the hardware store seem like a big day out?

.

.

Leave my cheese alone!

*She says as she allots more money in the budget. Who needs those pesky prescriptions anyway?*

.

Pandemic humor.

.

Because if I don’t laugh, I’ll hurt someone.

.

.

Proof there’s a silver lining to every cloud.

.

.

I’m not there… yet.

.

.

This, above anything else, is what I miss. Our plans of retiring and traveling extensively this year went right down the drain.

.

.

Whew. Glad I made the cut…

.

.

I wouldn’t doubt it.

.

.

Some people just shouldn’t shake their groove thing. Ever.

.

.

Better living through science? I rest my case.

.

.

Building a snowman?

Very 2019.

.

Pandemic humor

.

Laughing.

You need to do it…. so it might as well be here.

.

.

I knew I was totally blameless! Now if someone would just tell my waistline…

.

.

If we haven’t, we should .

Like right now.

.

.

Karen. Still causing trouble…

.

.

Not yet mind you, but come January it’s entirely possible.

.

.

I saw a woman buy 13 bottles of bleach last week.

They walk among us.

.

I should have known this was coming.

.

The Barn Mahal is the gift that keeps on giving. It grows. It changes. It morphs into something I no longer recognize as a barn.

Why do I say this?

.

.

Because last week my husband took me shopping for the next addition to his man cave extraordinaire.

.

.

Yes.

He wants a refrigerator.

.

.

And because he’s a man who demands instant gratification, he wanted to go home with it that day… which we quickly discovered was impossible. Thank you Covid 19…. yet another reason you suck.

All the refrigerators pictured on this blog, every last one of the small barn appropriate models that were on the display floor?

Unavailable.

It was enough to send us to our local pub for a drink… or two, and lunch.

.

.

Which for me was a massive fried haddock sandwich with homemade onion rings. For the husband?

.

.

A tool box and the light filtering blind we bought for the window we always sit in front of. The sun shines through it something fierce and we were tired of our bartender talking to us with his hand over his eyes.

.

.

For this kindness we refused payment… support your local businesses!…but received 4 free drinks when the bill was presented.

A win win.

.

.

And then it was back to the elusive we’ll show it to you but you can’t have it, neener neener refrigerator shopping.

.

.

The absolutely only one anyone had in stock was this small, wonderfully inexpensive model.

The husband vetoed that. Not enough room for beer.

So we spent a fruitless day, visited 7 stores and ended up coming home to order this one online.

.

.

Ample beer storage will be had…

But not for a week or two.

.

Pandemic humor.

.

Because laughing beats the alternative.

.

.

Please. I’m begging you…

.

.

Anal probe be damned. A day out is a day out.

.

.

Thank you Hubert.

.

.

How about we pee on everyone who refuses to wear one? That might change some minds.

.

.

Run, chicken!

Run!

.

.

Don’t laugh, by January this might be a reasonable option.

.

.

Proof positive Covid is affecting everyone.
