And Now For Something Completely Different


“It's not pining, it's passed on. This parrot is no more! It has ceased to be. It's expired and gone to meet its maker.This is a late parrot. It's a stiff. Bereft of life, it rests in peace. If you hadn't nailed it to the perch it would be pushing up the daisies. It's rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. This is an ex-parrot.”

I’m returning to an older format I used to do several years ago, with news and humor. Hope you enjoy!

Laura Marcella at Wavy Lines posted a list of misused words/grammar mistakes that is the best I’ve ever seen.

I Can Has Cheeseburger changed their site recently. I registered and was still unable to get the html for any of the images! So, these are from much older posts. (Because I still have the html - ha,ha,ha!)

Thanks for including my post and for your kind comment, Diane!

The internet cat is too true!! I could live without television but it would be waaay hard to give up the internet.

LOVE the proofreading column cat!

Hope you have a great weekend! :)

Wow, that lightening is amazing -- kinda looks like a tree in the sky. BTW, I'm in love with Harry.

Thank you Jemi and Alex.

Susanne, I hope I can continue doing them.

Laura, once in a while our internet is down for like an hour - and I go into panic mode!

Thanks, Kittie. Isn't Harry funny?

The Pay Pal thing is disturbing. Lots of people are concerned about it, including this one.

The top cat brought tears to my eyes, it was identicle to my late cat Tabitha who I lost several years ago.

Have a good week-end.

Thanks for the links, and the funnies :)

Somehow I dropped off your followers list - blogger dropped me from just about everyone I was following a while back. I'm back again :)

Hmmm ... maybe if the lightning hit the kitty and we could see its skeleton. No, wait. That's not funny. Sorry about that.
