Memes for a Monday

Okay I did a search with the Hounds from Hell looking over my shoulder so that they could have equal time on here. I hope they are happy!

Or at least give a clear beat.

Nora had me up in the middle of the night last week and I decided to take her back to bed with me. These next few speak to that “once in a lifetime” event.


I just want to know how this guy managed to get the hound to leave him alone for a few minutes of solo time in the bathroom.

I challenge anyone to tell me those things smell good to any creature under God’s sky.

I’m still trying to figure this one out – I mean it’s funny I’m just not sure why.

You may remember we had a video of Nora’s yoga routine a few years back.

Hmm somebody’s lawyer didn’t do a good job at jury selection.

And suddenly they have jaws like steel traps.

Leftovers – hell in our house it’s: Cook me a complete four course dinner.

Priorities ….. it’s all about priorities.

Oh foolish man.

And notice not a feline in sight. The things I do to make those dogs happy.

Memes for a Monday

Please don’t mention it to Nicky and Nora but I seem to have more Feline memes than those of the Canine variety. So once again it’s Cat Day at Memes for a Monday.

Science Fiction? or Fact? You decided!

Does anything make you move faster than the sound of a pet throwing up at the other end of the house?

Not everyone is granted the gift of linguistics!

I don’t know this really sounds like a canine I know!!

Looks about as exciting as the movie musical.

Or has he just retired?

I knew they learned that somewhere.

You can’t blame a guy for trying.

Ready to rumble.

Been there. Done that. Have the mug but it broke in the dishwasher.

Memes for a Monday

To start the week here’s an interesting observation from Frida Kahlo.

I’ll get our weekly religious meme out of the way early.

I’ll just leave this here.

Yes dear!

Just a thought but Thanksgiving is next month – family feast time.

And anytime the CBC shows one of their show-all spots on hotel rooms I swear I’ll never stay in another hotel again.

This sounds very much like a dream I use to have just before I began each new class – except I was, god save your eyes, naked.

Just looking at this I can taste the wood with slight overtones of lead or just a hint ot rubber.

Oh come on! Does anyone still iron clothes???

And I leave you with this thought from Vince The Sign Guy

Memes for a Monday

… but on a Tuesday!

Well okay I only show up on Monday’s – and admittedly today is a Tuesday but I do show up with a cornucopia of memes.

I recall that after two weeks of Mr Clemdening’s German class I switched to Intermediate Macramé!

I believe there was a bulletin from the WHO on that a few weeks ago.

Would that more of us could do that.

A word to the foodies out there.

One should always look at where the advise comes from.

Ah yes …….. well ……..

Always in the pursuit of knowledge I present this little known fact for you to wow you friends and family with.

A sad fact of life at this stage.

Memes for a Monday

Let’s start the week with an eternal truth – and after a certain age not just time but how often! So they tell me.

The trouble with posting something like this is that there are people out there who will believe it.

I posted this on another site and there was some discussion as to who the young man is. Any suggestions?

For my dear friend Richard because he loves pie and pi.

Give me that old time religion.

Every morning I chat with my friend CC and she is always on the patio having her first coffee. But I’m sure she doesn’t look like either one. Do you CC?

They’re #1! Isn’t that almost anyone these days?

Believe it or not there are people out there who won’t get this! They are called “young people”.

I’m pretty sure there is a Circle of Hell mentioned in the Inferno for both groups of people.

You can be damned sure he got a better contract that any of the rest of those Super Heros.

I searched and searched – okay I Googled for two minutes – but couldn’t find a word for giving vegetables human characteristics.

Oh come on did you honestly think there wouldn’t be a “Dad Joke”?

A thought to take away for the interesting times we live in.

The word for August 29th is:
Pie pī: [noun]
1.1 A baked food composed of a pastry shell filled with fruit, meat, cheese, or other ingredients, and usually covered with a pastry crust.
1.2 A former unit of currency in India.
1.3 An almanac of services used in the English church before the Reformation.
c. 1300 (probably older; piehus “bakery” is attested from late 12c.), related to Medieval Latin pia “pie, pastry.” According to the OED, the word is not known outside English with the exception of Gaelic pighe, which is from English.
