THINGS I KNOW (& SOME THINGS I DON'T KNOW FOR SURE)

I'm thinking of going back to posting 3 times week.
Would you like that?
Do you even care?
Please let me know in the comments.
If I get enough "Yes" comments I'll start next week!!




I KNOW ALL ABOUT THESE THINGS BECAUSE MY MOM TAUGHT ME:

My mom taught me LOGIC... "If you fall off that swing and break your neck, you can't go to the store with me." 
My mom taught me MEDICINE... "If you don't stop crossing your eyes, they're going to freeze that way." 

My mom taught me TO THINK AHEAD... "If you don't pass your math test, you'll never get a good job!" 

My mom taught me ESP... "Put your sweater on; don't you think that I know when you're cold?" 

My mom taught me TO MEET A CHALLENGE... "What were you thinking?  Answer me when I talk to you!  Don't talk back to me!" 

My mom taught me HUMOR... "When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don't come running to me."

My mom taught me how to BECOME AN ADULT... "If you don't eat your vegetables, you'll never grow up. 

My mom taught me ABOUT SEX... "How do you think you got here?" 

My mom taught me about GENETICS... "You are just like your father!" 

My mom taught me about my ROOTS... "Do you think you were born in a barn?" 

My mom taught me about the WISDOM of AGE... "When you get to be my age, you will understand." 

My mom taught me about ANTICIPATION... "Just wait until your father gets home." 

My mom taught me about RECEIVING... "You're going to get it when we get home." 

And my all-time favorite thing; JUSTICE... "One day you will have kids, and I hope they turn out just like YOU--then you'll see what it's like."



THINGS I'M NOT TOO SURE ABOUT:

What happens if you get scared half to death twice? 


If there is no God, who pops up the next Kleenex? 

When blondes have more fun, do they know it? 


If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy? 


Is it OK to yell "MOVIE!" in a crowded firehouse?


Can an atheist get insurance against acts of God?




SOME THINGS I HAD TO LEARN FOR MYSELF:

It's hard to make a comeback when you haven't been anywhere. 

Hard work pays off later. Laziness pays off now! 

When you do a good deed, get a receipt, in case heaven is like the IRS.

A closed mouth gathers no foot.

Always be sincere, even if you don't mean it. 

The trouble with life is there's no background music.

Remember, half the people in the world are below average.

Losing a wife or husband can be hard. In some cases, it’s damn near impossible.

  1. LOVE if ignorance is bliss why aren't more people happy? And, if it is true why aren't I happy ALL of the time?
    I always welcome your posts. Three days? Yes please.

  2. "It's hard to make a comeback when you haven't been anywhere."

    That quote was made for me, fishducky!

    You post as often or as little as you like - you're a flipster (flip side o' fifty). As a fellow flipster, I want you to do whatever you want to do. You've earned it. I'll read 'em all.

    1. That's probably good--then you don't have to thank all the little people you you stepped on while climbing the ladder to success!!

  4. Well, I do so enjoy your posts, but I'd think you would indeed need some time to gather all this together. 3 days a week is good with me!

    1. That sounds like the old question, "Was it good for you, too?"

  5. Love self esteem for cartoon characters.

    I came to the conclusion that posting three times a week was best for me. No one seemed to notice when I stopped posting on Sundays. I enjoy your blog and will continue to do so whenever you post. Take care.

  6. DEar Fran, that "smart phone" one really hits home. I truly don't believe I'm smart enough for one of those phones because I'm truly technologically challenged. As to posting more often, well, with my writing schedule I visit each of the blogs I follow only once a week, so right now all I'm getting to read is your Monday posting because that's the day I get to visit you! Peace.

  9. Yes! Yes! Yes! I would love to read your funnies three times a week.
    "If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy?" That's a very good question.
    "If God had wanted us to walk around naked", he wouldn't have invented t-shirts and jeans!

  11. HAHaaaaaa ~ hilarious Pearls Before Swine… I'll probably have to steal that one.. hahaaa

    Great Mom taught me stuff …. and well? I've got to steal the Things I"m not too sure about … jeeeeez that's fun

    Fun stuff as always, Fran and I'm down to only posting once a week … I try to catch up with blog reading once a week also… I say do whatever makes you happy.

    I like being happy … maybe just posting a couple of thoughts and cartoons a day … that'd be fun … anything to keep our minds turning those wheels…

    I do FB more because of my travel group and instant communication … since I'm not traveling much any longer and am stationary … my life is well… rather stationary … ;) but I got me a little ol bitty g'baby that keeps me on m'toes … little toot

Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
