Yeah, It’s Monday Again

No matter what’s happening in our lives, it’s important to keep on smiling.

As usual, let’s start with virus humor… even though it’s not that funny.

Now we know what effect the virus is having on turkeys…

Actually, they’re hiding from the virus as Hershey Kisses…

Technically, not a virus meme, but still good medicine for what ails you…

Now for some ‘regular’ humor… If you are a Southern cook you will get this right away…

More dish humor…

Jessie notices the doorbells, but she doesn’t look like this…

Only us older folks who actually studied American history in school will get this…

Me too…

Best rest area ever. Not only a free wife, but you can get a Cofee Brick and a Message…

Onion Relish on the most wanted list…

Maybe if you drink enough of the whiskey from above, Head Cleaner will sound better…

Maybe so, but it will be hard to conceal carry…

Finally, maybe if you go in feet first you will be OK…

Two Things

We’re a week and a half into Betty’s recovery from her broken ankle. It’s been a challenge for both of us, but more so for Betty.

Her boot feels like it weighs 20 lbs even though we know it’s not that heavy. The knee walker has been a big help, but it requires her using some muscles in her arms, shoulders and good leg that are tiring. At the end of the day, she’s rightfully worn out.

As for me, I rely on two things to be the best caregiver I can be.

First, God’s word in Ephesians 5:25 commands: “Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave up his life for her…” That tells me that there’s nothing I won’t do for her and with a glad heart.

Second, I remember the words of my good friend Bob when he was describing the struggle his wife Molly was having with fibromyalgia. He said he realized that Molly didn’t have fibromyalgia, WE have fibromyalgia. In other words he was totally committed to and invested in her struggle. I feel the same way. Betty doesn’t have a broken ankle. WE have a broken ankle and I am totally committed to and invested in her struggle.

I learned along time ago, the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid) is usually the best in most circumstances. So, to keep it simple, I’m relying on those two things.

Corrales Fall Ritual

Sights and smells of Fall at Wagner’s Farm Market – the roasting of New Mexico green chiles.

You can get Mild (which have flavor, but not kick), Medium (which have a noticeable kick as well as flavor), Hot (which you will want a glass of milk at hand), and Extra Hot (which will take the top of your head off).

Scrambled eggs with cheese and green chiles. Cheeseburgers with green chiles. Macaroni and cheese with green chiles. And on and on.

We love our green chiles.

Mas Monday

For those of you outside of the Southwest that means ‘More Monday.’

Once again, we poke fun at our friend the virus.

I think we’re going to need a bigger calendar for 2020…

Ba dum…ba dum… you know the rest…

I started off like the Health Care Professional, now I’m closer to Betty not letting me out of the house…

Free the pubs, free the pubs, free the pubs…

Fortunately, Betty’s not quite here yet…

Now we know what happens in the End Times…

Not necessarily associated with the virus but still a good idea…

Back to normal. It wouldn’t be an Internet meme without a couple of cats…

Lot of truth here, even working from home…

Now we know the answer to the everlasting question, “What is the meaning of life?”…

This is the kind of salad that would help me be a vegetarian…

Have you ever wondered about this….

While we’re on Star Trek…

This one leaves me wordless…

Now go out and have a blessed week!

Stars in the Heavens

And he brought him (Abraham) outside and said, “Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” (Genesis 15:5)

“Sometimes I think of Abraham, How one star he saw had been lit for me.” (Rich Mullins, “Sometimes By Step”)

No matter how you feel about yourself, God knew you before time, and He loves you so much, he gave Jesus to die for you on the cross.

So, shine like your star in heaven for God’s glory.
