I love my town.

.

And I love their Facebook group page.

.

.

A moo disorder?

More likely the poster has a Budweiser disorder.

.

.

Okaaaay.

I’m not sure what Doug did to rate a shout out, but I’ll go with it.

.

.

Damn. All I have under my bed is dust bunnies… where’s the fun in that?

Here’s a random photo of ducks that were for sale at our local hardware store. I’m always tempted to bring home a few when the husband sends me up there for screws.

.

.

.

Now there’s a platform no one can argue with.

.

.

You do, you really do.

Does anyone know where I can score one of those beauties?

.

Because some things are best left unexplored.

.

Facebook ads. They’re never ending and annoying and I pay them very little mind.

.

.

Yes, I like Hint water… but don’t need to see daily videos.

.

.

And yes, those are some sweet shades I could easily see myself rocking next summer, but they don’t need to join the other 15 pairs I never wear in my junk drawer.

While I realize these ads are targeted to me specifically based on algorithms of my search history, every once in a while they surprise me.

As this one did the other day:

.

.

Not being in possession of a pair, I assure you I have never actively searched for ball wash.

Trust me on this.

Of course since it popped up, I had to click. For research/ blog fodder purposes only you understand.

.

.

Don’t be whack, GIVE A SACK.

There’s an ad slogan designed to burrow deep into your frontal cortex.

And while I admit I chortled over this, I’m not chortling now. Because you know what happens when you click on a Facebook ball wash product ad?

This:

.

.

And this:

.

.

I am now being inundated with less than helpful product placement.

Man meat.

What have I done!

.

I love my town.

.

And the ridiculous things they post on their Facebook page.

.

.

Must float didn’t seem too much to ask… which is why some smart ass posted this photo:

.

.

I love smart asses.

In other news, coyotes.

.

.

We hear them all the time. It’s quite eerie…

.

.

Free roosters are the one and only free item I can’t talk my husband into.

.

.

Hoe downing squirrels are nothing to take lightly, trust me on this.

.

.

Chicken theft.

The world really has gone crazy.

.

I love my town.

.

And what passes for local news on their Facebook page.

.

.

No, I don’t know what’s happening either. But turtles are involved so it must be good.

.

.

Goat shooing happens more often than you think here.

.

.

Now this is news!

While we do live in Maine, moose are more commonly seen up north. Having one stroll our river is a sure way to fire up the locals.

.

.

This is another type of wildlife sighting altogether. A traveling donkey who spends a few nights on your lawn by request. Made by a local artist, his name is Mr. H.

.

.

Goats are still on the loose.

Clearly their walkabout is causing concern.

.

.

But in happier news, the slandering chicken is back home on the drivay.

Perhaps if her owner learned how to spell she’d stay home more often.

.

I love my town.

.

And I love what people post on its Facebook page.

.

.

Oh no.

If you see it?  Please tell it we serve a daily and nightly buffet free of charge.

.

.

I’m not exactly sure what constitutes ‘groovy’ lamb.

But I’m pretty sure this isn’t it.

.

.

.

Jumping orangey peach colored fish?

Thanks 2020. Like this year wasn’t weird enough.

.

.

I have to admit I’d never even heard of letterboxing before.

Sounds like a perfect Covid era activity though.

.

.

Normally I’d say friend.

But it’s 2020, for all we know that thing is radioactive.

.

.

A giant vacuum cleaner?

Well, yeah.  They want us to social distance…  so just stick the hose end into your local pub and switch her on.

I love my town.

I also love all the ridiculous things people post about on its Facebook page.

In case you were wondering, no one volunteered to remove the stinky little bugger and he was released.

Skunk-1

Homeowner-0.

A reasonable response, but hell.

I didn’t even know we had a potato truck!

I showed this to the husband…. but he said there’s no room in the barn.

😡

I don’t know…

Cowbusters?

I hate when someone beats me to the perfect comment, don’t you?

A chicken plucker!

I’m shivering in avian sympathy.

Because everyone wants pizza.

 

The husband stopped for gas the other day in his truck. Since I wasn’t with him, he opted for a little haute cuisine a la convenience store.

Pizza slices in hand…. he settled into the truck cab to munch.

And then?

This:

A seagull spotted him. ( Or more likely his pizza )

 

IMG_5519

 

Husband said the silly thing squawked up a storm, pacing back and forth on the hood.

 

IMG_5520

 

When that didn’t earn him any pizza, he attacked the windshield wipers.

Husband said it was such a spectacle, people were taking pictures and one woman asked if she could put it on Facebook.

So if you see a retired Marine in a black Ford truck looking  like Tippi Hendren on your news feed?

That’s my man.

 

IMG_5517

 

And his new seagull friend.

Well that clears things up.

 

I’m shamefully reposting this from our town’s Facebook page because it captures the dynamic perfectly.

Want to find out who the idiots are in your community?

Join your town’s “Friends and Family” or local group page. The gossips, the curmudgeons, the do gooders, the righteously offended…. they’re all actively posting and making asses out of themselves on a regular basis.

Read on and tell me you don’t recognize a few of these people.

 

QUESTION:

How many Facebook group members does it take to change a light bulb?

ANSWER:

1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed.

14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently.

7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.

17 purists who use candles and are offended by light bulb discussions.

6 to argue over whether it’s ‘lightbulb’ or ‘light bulb’.

Another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid.

22 to tell THOSE 6 to stop being a***holes.

2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is ‘lamp’.

15 know-it-alls who claim that they were in the industry and that ‘light bulb’ is perfectly correct.

49 to post memes and GIFs (several are of Michael Jackson eating popcorn with the words added: “I’m just here for the comments.”)

19 to post that this page is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a light bulb page.

11 to defend the posting to this page saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant here.

24 to discuss the merits of LED/swirly fluorescent light bulbs

44 to claim LED and fluorescent bulbs will kill you.

12 to post the letter “F”.

8 to ask what F means.

7 to post ‘Following’ despite the 3 dots at the top right that mean you don’t have to.

3 to say “can’t share”.

2 to reply “can’t share from a closed group”.

36 people to post photos of their own light bulbs.

15 people to post “I can’t see S$%^!” and use their own light bulbs.

6 to report the post or privately message an admin/moderator because someone said “f÷×$”

4 to say “Didn’t we go through this already a short time ago?”.

13 to say “Do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs”.

1 to bring politics into the discussion by adding that (insert politician of choice) isn’t the brightest bulb. This usually takes place within the first three comments.

50 more to get into personal attacks over their political views.

3 to state sanctimoniously that this is supposed to be a friendly Facebook group and that all of this petty nonsense is a result of people abandoning courtesy.

5 admins to ban the posters who were insulting.

3 who come up with a conspiracy theory about light bulbs which either involves them catching Coronavirus or that they will fry their brains.

1 late arrival to comment on the original post 6 months later and start it all over again.

I love my town!

 

Where else can you go shopping and be greeted by a chicken?

 

 

Although what this poor devil did to be locked up in a rubber prison I don’t know.

 

 

Where else can you go to find a library that sets up a walking story time for kids?

 

 

Where else can you get alerts about runaway goats?

 

 

And offers of free hay?

 

 

The same place that airs their poopy grievances on Facebook, that’s where.

 

 

I love my town!!

It’s almost unbearable.

 

My little town’s FB page has been lighting up with some interesting sightings lately.

One woman kept posting but no one believed her.

Well….

 

 

I’d say that’s pretty definitive proof.

To be honest I’m surprised we’ve never had this issue. We’ve seen evidence of Yogi in our backyard and woods. (and even on the deck one winter. Yikes!)  But he’s never raided our feeders, for which I’m grateful.

They’re lovely creatures, but quite destructive.

The sightings continue…. which prompted this latest post.

I’m down with that.

Hi Waldo!
