Pony Party…. Filling in

So, there I was one day last week, in a funk.  Nothing about the world was right. GWB and his rethugs were (are) still up to their dirty deeds plus all kinds of other things were just going wrong.  Decided to do something positive.. like maybe taking some time to wash out the bottles and cans for recycling.  Into the kitchen, up to my arms in soapy water.  Scrub, scrub.. ooh, getting things nice and squeaky clean.  Oh shit!  Sliced (gashed really) the hell out of my thumb on a tin can.  And it is bleeding like a stuck pig… I mean a LOT of blood.  Quickly pressed it with my other thumb and stuck both hands in the air.  Standing there saying, “Oh, this can’t be good.”  Slow bleeding enough to dial the phone … reach the mister.. “Get home NOW”.  Two minutes later he’s pulling down the driveway.  We look at it, it’s still bleeding but not gushing now.  Get it bandaged and put it back up in the air.  Discovered that it’s next to impossible to type one handed.. CAPITAL letters are a real problem.  Ok, time to go outside and sit down to watch the birds and chipmunks.  There I sat, under a tree, arm still in the air.  Suddenly felt something on my leg… A bird had shit all over it.  Started laughing like a fool.  It was then I realized just how stupid life can be and what my place in it really is… bird shit!    

Here’s tonight’s deal.  Mr.’I seriously dislike cute little kitties’ is unavailable tonight but he was kind enough to send a few things … to whit:

Really bad pun alert:  KNIGHT MOVES

 The fair young damsel was beautiful, but had no fashion sense.  She wore a frilly green and purple dress with drown polka-dots and orange stripes.  A dragon captured her, and she said, “You’re in trouble, dragon!  Any minute a brave knight will come to slay you and rescue me.”  The dragon just laughed.  Many knights did come, but they took one look at her and rode off again.

 “You see,” said the dragon, “I knew no knight would ever try to rescue a damsel in this dress.”

Please don’t rec the pony.  Hang out, have some fun and then check out the wonderful things on the recent and rec’d list.  

One last thing…

    Maybe that’s what the bird was really saying:  It’s not so bad, have a good laugh.  Funny way to say it, though.

    Tired and draggy all day–I need more sleep.  We may have helped a brother today, but it feels like so little.  Like building a hospital at the base of the cliff instead of repairing the road.

    TES has checked in.. so if you can donate now would be a perfect time.  And if you can’t, how about sending some love his way.. love works too.
