Why spelling is so important.

.

If you’ve ever doubted the power of misspelled words, I think these listings might change your mind. They’re also a scathing indictment of the educational system… but that’s another blog entirely.

.

.

I’d like to think that was a typo, but they wrote it twice. Sigh.

.

.

They’re selling a Porsche for $100? What a deal!

.

.

This could go either way… because axes will most definitely grant access.

.

.

If the wax breaks into La Boheme during dinner, fine. Otherwise? Please, buy a dictionary.

.

.

I can’t even.

.

.

This made me chuckle, but judging by the price… it might be a fake.

.

.

Damn, the poor man’s Tardis.

.

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.

Hurricane humor….

 

Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve experienced many terrible storms over the years. When we lived down south we had trees come through the windows and parts of our roof ripped off. The destruction is real and nothing to be taken lightly…..

That being said, we also had a sense of humor.

We had to.

And while my heart breaks for the people of the Bahamas suffering the devastation of Dorian, I’m twisted enough to laugh along with my friends in Florida who were spared the worst of her.

Their FB page had this the other day…

 

wine

 

A very useful thing when you’re living on canned goods and snacks because there’s no electricity.

They also posted this pic of their local grocery store.

Now really…  how bad does your bread have to be to be the only brand left on the shelf during a hurricane?

And finally, this news blurb I saw on my phone.

Phil? I have two words for you –

Spell check.
