Things I like today… chapter 2.




A Maine woman is experimenting with weed to dull a lobster’s pain as he’s plunged into that boiling pot of water.




There are worse ways to die than high.




The article in case you want to read it:

Baked Lobster

I like.




A local homemade R2D2 warning drivers to slow down.




And this one reads in his spare time. Who knew?

I like.




Rhododendron season.




For a burst of pure color it’s hard to beat.




I like.

The bees like…




It’s all good.




And finally…




The dollar bill I received in change….

Complete with instructions on how not to spend it.




I like.

Just throwing this out there.


I rarely blog about anything religious or political.

I have friends on both sides of the aisle. Left and right, liberal and conservative, atheist and Christian. Thankfully I’m an adult who can agree to disagree without coming to blows.



I don’t engage in Twitter wars or Facebook diatribes.




Although truthfully, it’s been an eye opening experience to see how some of my oldest and dearest friends really feel.  Did I ever know them, know them?

Apparently not.

That being said, the recent attacks on women’s reproductive rights has me incensed enough to post this:





Okay, it’s a little in your face, but basically on point.

Sorry gentlemen, but if you could get pregnant? The world would have drive thru clinics on every corner.

Yes, I’m pro choice.

And I don’t want to start a 350 comment battle of hate on the issue of abortion. But my mother had an illegal back alley procedure in 1943. She was 20 years old, in love for the first time and very naive. The man she thought would marry her…. paid for her to take of it instead. The “doctor” used dirty instruments. She hemorrhaged, almost bled out and had to be rushed to the hospital with a raging infection. Years later, when she married my father and tried to have children… she had 5 miscarriages because of that awful experience. I was her 6th and final pregnancy. Her late in life miracle child.

If the idea of abortion is abhorrent to you? I get it.

Don’t have one. No one’s forcing you..

But the current climate of gender inequality is trying to force women back into those horrible dark rooms…. and that makes me sick.


That’s off my chest.

Now back to your regularly scheduled nonsense.


Squirrel acrobatics.




Why did the chicken cross the road?





Well, keep dreaming…

Today’s not the day.

It’s an age old question and I thought why not enlist a few famous people to help us with the answer.

So why did the chicken cross the road?

OPRAH says:  Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross the road so badly. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I’m going to give this chicken a NEW CAR so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.

Fair enough.

Let’s hope it’s a Mercedes, because they had the best car commercial… ever!

Watch it. I dare you not to smile…



SARAH PALIN says:  The chicken crossed the road because, gosh-darn it, he’s a maverick!




DR SEUSS says:  Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I’ve not been told.




True, but a little morbid.

BILL CLINTON says:  I did not cross the road with that chicken.




Okay, okay. We get it.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY says:  To die in the rain, alone.




Well, damn.

That’s depressing.

DONALD TRUMP says:  We should build a wall so the chicken can’t cross the road.




Nice hair.

AL GORE says:  I invented the chicken…. and the road.





Thanks for that.

ALBERT EINSTEIN says:  Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?




And finally –

ARISTOTLE says: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.




So there you have it.




And because I don’t want to break the trend of inserting a GOT reference into every single one of my posts till the final season is over….



A Game of Thrones chicken.


An honest politician!


I received a flier in the mail the other day for a man running for the State House of Representatives.

And while I usually throw those things away, this one grabbed my attention for it’s absolute and utter honesty.

Finally! I thought….

Someone is taking responsibility for their actions.





It explained so much!

The total lack of unicorns visiting our backyard…




The fact that people still watch reality tv….





Oh, alright.

It was really just a statement about his opponent’s outrageous claims against him and his political record.

But for a minute there..

It was nice to dream about an honest politician, right?
