I had to.

.

I mean really, how could I not?

.

.

I broke down and ordered a sampler pack of perfume from a French company that takes themselves as seriously as I do. In other words, not at all.

.

.

They embrace the bad reviews of their products and even use them in their advertising campaigns.

.

.

And since I value a sense of humor above all else, I can’t imagine I’ll be disappointed. But don’t for a minute think is a gimmick. They don’t exactly give their stuff away.

.

.

I Am Trash is one of their most popular fragrances. A revolting name, but an interesting idea.

.

.

The ultimate in recycling. And as long as stray dogs don’t start following me down the street? It should be fun trying.

.

I love my town.

.

In the continuing series Small Town Life Be Different…. here are the latest missives from mine.

.

.

This was so sweet. Our local UPS man… who distributes doggie treats on his route… is in the hospital with pneumonia, so all his four legged customers posted pictures.

.

.

Because traffic alerts in the country are less about speeding and more about manure.

.

.

Every year the women of the Historical Society sew a quilt with local scenes to be auctioned off.

.

.

The Town Office bought the first one where it still hangs proudly.

.

.

Yes, I showed this to the husband. And no, he hasn’t removed his absolutely no chickens ban.

.

.

Yikes. Critters that crawl under your house and die are the worst. But I can’t say I’ve ever known one to stink of garlic. And speaking of stinking…

.

.

Word to the wise… if you think it’s your year? It most definitely is. 🤢

.

.

As he predicted, this man’s post got a whole lotta hate. He’s new to the area… and I’m guessing he isn’t going to be very popular. Buying a house in a rural part of Maine means generations of the previous owners might still be inhabiting your back 40. A man up the road from us has a cemetery from the late 1700’s on his land. He doesn’t know the family or their descendants, but lovingly cares for the plot all the same. It’s called respect.

.

Products no one needs.

.

A list of gifts to give your friends. If you don’t ever want them to speak to you again that is….

.

.

Repeat after me, ” I will not buy River a dog’s ass pillow for her birthday or Christmas. Not now. Not ever. ”

.

.

Seriously? Like I don’t have enough guilt reaching for those two extra slices of cheese as it is.

.

.

Why.

Why in the world would anyone want to walk around in a baguette? I’ve been to France and had them fresh from the boulangerie. They are made to sop up sauce, be covered in jam or smothered in cheese… not your nasty foot funk.

That’s a hard no from me.

.

Things that made me chuckle today.

.

I don’t know if this is true…

.

.

But I’m really hoping it is.

.

.

Baby Yoda cocktails? Fabulous. Telling me about them and not posting a recipe? Cruel.

.

.

And since we’ve all had enough of the last election horror show?

.

.

Wilbur is pretty stinking cute. And when’s the last time you said that about a presidential candidate?

.

.

Poop cookies.

.

.

Admit it, you know someone who deserves a dozen or so of those.

.

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.

.

As good an explanation as any.

.

There was a post on our local Facebook page the other day and I thought it warranted a second look.

.

.

Strange signs appearing on your lawn?

My town has an answer.

.

.

Makes sense.

Pee here! Not there…

.

.

I think we all know a few candidates who should have been left far, far behind.

.

.

Bub.

It’s a Maine thing… never mind.

.

.

Aliens!

That’s a blog worthy answer right there.

.

.

Even Google doesn’t have a clue. How often does that happen?

.

Admit it, you want these.

.

I mean, really. Who wouldn’t?

.

.

A wiener beverage is a beautiful thing.

.

.

Who knew pricks were so helpful?

.

.

I’ve been seeing a lot of the next type of item recently.

.

.

If someone could explain the current fascination with unicorn bodily functions to me, that would be swell.

.

.

Mixed tapes?

Someone needs to set Marty McFly’s dial to the 21rst Century.

.

.

First it was cat butts, now Corgi.

.

.

The world really has gone mad.

.

Pandemic humor.

.

Because you have to laugh. Or at least I do..

.

.

Nothing worse than a wannabe.

.

.

I’m not sure I needed permission, but thanks anyway.

.

.

Poor Rexy.

How the heck did he eat a taco?

.

.

As rabid as some people have been during this election cycle, it wouldn’t surprise me.

.

.

True.

We were going to retire and travel. Now I get excited if the grocery store has toilet paper.

.

.

The perfect holiday ornament for a truly shitty year.
