All The King's Horses.... October 2014 Funny Friday

Today’s post is October’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month (We are posting early this month, due to the holiday). Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 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.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by The Bergham’s Life Chronicles (, that's ME!!!

1. Sit on a cloud, they said. It will be fun, they said.
2. I should've taken a few extra skydiving lessons. I just don't think I'm doing it right.
3. Look, Mom, I'm flyinnnnnnng.
4. Obviously, I'm going to get there way before the chicken. 
5. I hope the King's men stocked up on Krazy Glue.

Yesterday was Embee's eleventh birthday. My mind is blown. She was four, when Chadski and I started dating. Now, she is eleven. How did that even happen?? While searching for a small gift for Embee (she got all her gifts last weekend, but I decided we should give her something small on her actual birthday), we ended up at TJMaxx. We found an electronic basketball hoop. It hangs on the back of a door and is interactive. Lately, we've been playing with the suction cup hoop on the back of our door. A lot. I'm not so good. Chadski is decent. Weewee is the best rebound girl ever. We have fun. Why we didn't just buy the electronic hoop, I don't know. At around 7 pm last night, I was crawling into the car, and going to buy our hoop. The hoop we should've bought earlier in the afternoon. It was fine. I bought it and home it came. Chadski masterfully assembled it, with a bit of help from Weewee, and we were shooting hoops in no time. We were having fun. Weewee was hav…

Owl always love Fall.... Use Your Words October 2014!

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.

My words are:  Candy Corn ~ Costumes ~ Chili ~ Banana Peppers They were submitted by:http://followmehome.shellybean.comThank you for such great words! 

It's Fall y'all!!! I love Fall. I truly love Fall. Now, I will confess, I used to be a lover of Winter. That was before I lived in Buffalo, New York, for five years. Five long, freezing cold years. That ended my love of Winter and snow. Permanently. Then …

Word to your mother.

Doggy. Mama. Daddy. Sasha. Night night. Ear. Shoe. Shark. No. Nose. Five. Uh oh. Ball. Balloon. Bottle. Oh yeah. Nana. Up. Banana. Eat. You. Light. Bye. Baby. Doll. Cup. Color. Pretty. Tickle. Hi. Keys. Cookies. Go. Book. Sock. Choo choo. Molly.  This is a list of the words Weewee can say thus far. I feel like I'm forgetting one or two.

My Rant. October 2014 Secret Subject Swap

It's that time again! Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week, 14 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts for all the world to read! 

My “Secret Subject” is: Is 2014 anything like you pictured it would be 20 years ago? It was submitted by: (Thank you for this fabulous subject, Sarah!! Thank you for assigning this subject to me, Karen!! Perfect timing eh?!)
Twenty years ago, I was eleven, and the thought of 2014 was mind blowing. It was 1994, and to be honest, many things were mind blowing to me. I lived a very sheltered life in many ways. I never really went to a real mall or rode an escalator until I was nearly 14. I did not go to the movies until I was almost 13. I experienced a lot during my childhood, and yet there was a lot I never experienced.
If you had asked me in 1994, what I thought 2014 wou…
