I carried a watermelon #FunnyFriday

Today’s post is September’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

Funny Friday  150 X 150.jpg

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Dawn of Cognitive Script.

1. Wife to hubby: I do not care what you say, I can make it fit in the box.
Hubby to wife: It isn't going to fit.
Wife to hubby: One day you will learn not to doubt me.

2. I carried a watermelon. (if you get this one, let's be best friends!)

3. I actually sat down to finish this post today, and the first thing I thought, when I looked at it, was the conversation I had with my daddy's friend last night. He is helping me with keeping my dad's place secure until I get there. Part of my dad's place, is his huge garden. The last of the crops are being harvested yesterday, and today. I asked his friend to keep what he wanted, and to give the rest away, to anyone who may need or want them. My dad has the most amazing green thumbs. He could raise produce gardens and flower gardens, unlike any others I have ever seen. He did it partially to feed himself (and me, when I lived with him), and mostly to be able to give away tons of fresh produce to people who needed them. It was one of the things I loved about him most. His friend asked if I wanted anything for myself, and I told him no, the only exception would be if there were a watermelon. I would definitely love to have one for Gigi. Unfortunately, there weren't any, but that is okay. I will tell you though, no watermelon I have ever eaten, has compared to the ones I ate growing up, that my Daddy grew for me. He raised the sweetest, juiciest watermelons.

4. The aftermath of the latest math word problem. Johnny did have forty watermelons, but at the end of the day, after eating thirty nine, he had only one left.

5. As you may have guessed from my number three, and you knew if you follow my Facebook page, my Daddy passed away this week. We will be headed to Wyoming in the wee hours of Saturday morning. I will be somewhat scarce on here, as I have so much to do, to get everything settled. It is so weird the things you remember, when you are suddenly searching all your memories. I keep remembering this day, we were at a corner store (in most places, you go in, buy your stuff, and leave, but not at corner stores in North Carolina), and my daddy was running his mouth with his friends, and I was sitting on the hood of his car, eating a juicy watermelon he had picked for me. I had just moved, and had started at another school, and I had lost touch with my BEST friend Shannon. Well, as I was sitting there, watermelon juice dripping down my chin, thinking about how watermelon season was the best, I looked up, and there was my Shannon and her brother Brian. My dad ended up meeting her parents that day, and she was right back in my life, as she should be. Her parents and my dad, ended up being the best of friends, and well, Shannon and Brian are my sister and brother. Period. It was funny, because my Dad had wanted to go somewhere, and I had begged him to stay at the store for a bit, so I could enjoy my watermelon. That watermelon led me back to my Shannon. Did I mention my Daddy grew the best watermelons ever?!

I almost did not participate in this Funny Friday, because I knew I would not be able to find my funny. I just knew that my Daddy, the eternal clown, would have loved Funny Friday posts, and he would want me to finish whatever I start. So, here is what I was able to summon up for you. I am sorry it is lacking in the Funny department. I hope you all have a wonderful Friday.

  1. Safe travels and peace to you and the family. You know I lost my Daddy 5 years ago and it was the hardest thing. He too had a sense of humor but no green thumb. In the stress of it all, remember the good times and bless you for participating in FF when you didn't have to. Love ya girl.

  2. I'm glad you participated and used the time to tell us stories about your dad. Again, I am sorry for your loss but I am glad you're going to Wyoming to do what you need to do for him.

Rainbow Colored Glasses #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to March's Blog with Friends Round-up. Each month, a group of bloggers chooses a topic, and then creates blog posts based on that theme. The posts can include anything, from poetry and recipes, to short stories and informative essays, and often crafts or DIY projects. This month's chosen theme is rainbows.

I decided to do a round-up of awesome rainbow finds, that are reasonably priced, and an easy way for your to add more rainbows into your life. I personally love rainbows, and actually enjoy adding them into my life whenever possible. I especially like adding them into Gigi's wardrobe. My inspiration for the title of this post, were a pair of glasses I bought her. Rose colored glasses are cool, but rainbow colored is such a better view! Unless of course you love black, and then I am sorry.

I will be posting links to where you can find the items to buy. However, I encourage you to shop around, and see if you are able to find any better deals. I also want you to know,…

Welcome to February's Blog With Friends round-up!! I have had so much fun joining in, that I decided to tag along for February as well. In case you do not know how it works... A group of bloggers chooses a theme for the month, and then we all create unique posts, based on the same theme. Then we link up together, and provide y'all with a round-up!! The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!

Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

Boredom, Boredom Go AWAY! #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to July's Blog with Friends Round-up!! Each month, a group of bloggers join Karen from Baking in a Tornado, and pick a theme for the month. Then each blogger creates a post, based on that theme. Posts can include anything the blogger wants. You may find poetry, recipes, short stories, DIY projects, crafts, informative posts, and anything else a blogger may choose. It is just a fun way, for us to all give our own take on a given theme.

This month's theme is Anti-Boredom Month. Did you know that July is National Anti-Boredom Month? I did not know this, until we were researching themes for our BWF posts. I think it is an excellent idea for Summer. I know when I was growing up, the most boredom I encountered, was usually in the Summer. The rest of the year, I would be so busy with school and activities, I did not have time to be bored. Then Summer would hit, and after the excitement wore off, the boredom would come visit regularly. 

I decided to compile a lists of activities…
