Not just the cartoon, but your favorite coffee mug from home, too..so your mama was a donkey, but your daddy an elephant! 😂
Edit- There is no shame in making a mistake...it is a yuuuman condition "here and there" at times.

Now who gave you that photo of me!
I say better safe than sorry! I have everything with me except @Robo's rice cooker...and I look horrible without my makeup. I shoulda brought it with me and left the tooth brush at home.

You are welcome .... I go for the big game :p
I'm on my daily flat trail walk of nearly 3 miles. It's nice to have roaming on my phone. I stop and check my important notifications and there you are...slow, but steady!😁

Hello, peeps, and now goodbye...see ya soon!✋
It’s been ages since the last time I listened to that one. For some reason I actually noticed the text this time. What nonsense! Very appropriate for this thread. Perhaps it’s one of the cases where it is an advantage not to be a native English speaker. When I listen to music with foreign texts, I can switch off my internal translation mode, and then it’s just ….. sound :)

LMAO!

Congratulations Pippi!
Sorry to steal your thunder, NYC! I won't participate in the challenge again. I'll leave it up to you and Rick to battle it out!
Yes, Pippi...my best storybook friend! I relate to what she is "all about"...she's me by osmosis...or me her!

Oh, look! Squirrel.
Rick, this is uncanny as it's sooo ME! Sometimes when I'm out walking with a friend, in mid conversation I interupt her or even myself and say "Oh look, a squirrel"...or mushroom, or bird, or a house color I like. It's kinda rude, but I can't help myself! Do you have ESP or struggle with this syndrome yourself! 😂

Rick...🎼Oops, there goes another rubber tree, oops there goes another rubber tree plant!🎼
This was a song used when I took tap dancing lessons when I was a girl...just a few years ago...or should I say waaay too many years ago and then some!

No way! I've never seen those squirrel jokes before! I guess many people share my self-proclaimed disorder...but it's not nice that we are being made fun of...I never knew we were until today! 😯😄
Chris,
You are not the only one
I think I have this ADHD too but never heard this as a child ...wasn't a disorder then....
Makes me wonder about all these "labels" these days ...don't get me wrong folks but maybe a good kick up the ass might sometimes be needed instead of medication that kids are subjected to or a bit more parental control
Mods.....take this post off if you think its controversial

In my case
People would just say..."oh, isn't she WILD"
Makes me laugh now at the description.

Forgot to add ....The Wooden Spoon.....
Anyone heard of the wooden spoon or is this an Irish thing
Used to be one over the cooker...more of a threat than anything else!

My mum did follow us a few times with the sweeping brush however
I tried the sweeping brush a few times myself but could never catch them ....just as well I suppose.
The grandchildren didn't believe me about the wooden spoon until I turned up with one a week later.
They went very quiet!!

I've definately heard of the wooden spoon, but my mom preferred the broom as a scare tactic...see me "run and hide"! I musta' done a good job of getting out of the way cuz I don't recall that broom ever touching me.😅

A hard liquor drink, not wine or beer. "Gin and Tonic"...what were you thinking, NYC? 😲
BTW, I haven't had one since March...they may be my fav, with lime, but I am no lush!

Thread timeline so fascinating.

Late afternoon for me, but not for you and you and you.

So long farewell, something, something, good night.

My mum also used the wooden spoon in my young days in Ireland,so you could be right about it being an ""Irish thing "".

Definitely Celtic, anyway... My granny had a ‘smell that and trimmle’ (tremble) stick. It was really a piece of wood used to smooth out the covers on the alcove bed in the flat, where there was very little possibility of moving the bed or mattress out to reach the far side. Or so I understand. I doubt it was ever used beyond being brandished as a threat!

The terrain looks treacherous. BB must be climbing the Picos de Europa mountains. That's quite a challlenge considering it's his first Camino...although he probably is very "sure footed" and unlikely to stumble!

In the back garden of a house I visited this afternoon... latest in a long line of resident foxes in the area.
View attachment 58335
We had a gray fox curled up in our back yard taking a nap on a cold late fall day last year. We thought he was poisoned or dead, but he was gone a few hours later.

Well, I only know about five of the songs,

NYC, I know only about five of the songs, but maybe I'll look a few of the other ones up when I find some extra time...I'm retired.
Yes, it’s funny, not working.

I’ve been off work for a bit.

I am far busier now than I was while working.

Not sure I am alot "busier" in retirement, but I seem to get far less accomplished. You have a lot on your "plate" in helping your family. I have already been through what you are now dealing with and you have my empathy; it is commendable and there is no greater service.

I just saw a new thread on the forum this morning. The video is 30 minutes long so doubt I'll watch the whole thing, but I couldn't resist sharing it cuz I was wondering if it could be our very own Bristle boy...Hee haw!😛
EDIT- This is only a screenshot, not the actual utube video. If interested, you would need to go to the original forum post yourself...sorry.
