Some Days...Are Good Days

Today it rained.
Today I pooped in the vacant lot across the street.
Some days that is all it takes for it to be a good day.

Just Call Me Chaos

I'm innocent...honest!

Ronnie says I have two speeds...
Stop & Sniff    AND   Full Speed Ahead

I would like to add a third speed thank-you-very-much!
I also Saunter quite elegantly.

Do you think that is why she calls me Chaos?

Happy Dog!

Let's suppose...

Just suppose a man accidentally lock his wife in the trunk of the car.  What do you think would happen to said man when he opened the trunk and his wife popped out? 

 Just suppose a man accidentally locked his dog in the trunk of the car.   What do you think would happen to said man when he opened the trunk and his dog popped out?

Which one, wife or dog, would be happy to see the man and not think twice about being locked in the truck OR hold it against him for the rest of his life?

There is a reason dogs are called man's best friend.

Love ,

Its a Nguyen Win Situation!

Before I start I am just gonna say this.... I know it's May, and I know May is the end of the school year or at least getting close to the end of the school year, but can it really be May and the end of the school year already?! 

Okay, now that is out of my system....

Eight girls who are not related but have the same last name all happened to attend the same high school. 

As schools usually do, the student's pictures in the yearbook are presented in alphabetical order putting these eight girls together in some fashion as they had probably been thrown together in numerous lines and times throughout their high school years. 

So these intelligent young ladies got together one last time and laid out a masterful plan to prank the yearbook.

When each girl had their yearbook photo taken, they wore the same off the shoulder style black dress and their hair fixed in similar fashions.

That all by itself would have been striking but their real sense of humor begins to shine as you read the phrase each girl had printed under their names.  The word(s) with the individual picture doesn't make much sense, but if you read all eight together those words become a sentence:

"We know      what      you're      thinking      and      no      we're      not related."

Priceless! (thank you Yahoo)

Sharpie Art

True story....
My artist (Ronnie) doesn't like shoes, doesn't like shopping, and especially doesn't like shopping for shoes.  When she does have to shop for shoes, she buys a pair, usually tennis shoes, and proceeds to wear them until they are falling to pieces.

Once upon a time Ronnie was married, and her husband didn't especially like the worn out shoes.  He would wait until garbage day, drop Ronnie's worn out shoes in the trash, and wave good-bye as the trash truck trundled the worn out shoes down the street on its way to the dump, forcing Ronnie to go buy new shoes.

In order to keep her comfy shoes from getting tossed, Ronnie began to color them with Sharpies.  She would make wonderfully wild shapes in bright colors and you could see her feet coming a mile away.  The worn-outness was disguised and her shoes escaped the trip to the trash.

This all happened ten or fifteen years ago (she always was ahead of her time) and Ronnie still colors her shoes if she gets the chance but now she does it just for fun.

Other people are now having some Sharpie fun.  Check it out...




And just because I love you....How to fix a dried out Sharpie - you can thank me later.


Louie Louie

Every kid person of legal drinking age who has downed a beer at a loud party (or watched Animal House) has heard and sung along with the song "Louie Louie".

As with a lot of drinking songs the lyrics get lost in the drink and the chorus gets sung at the top of the lungs.

You know....
Louie Louie, oh no
Me gotta go

However, not only did the lyrics of "Louie Louie" get lost, mangled, and mutilated by inebriated songsters, they were investigated by the FBI.
Somehow the rumor got started that the lyrics were...um...dirty and a bad influence on the kids individuals listening.  The resulting furor took a song that probably should have died in obscurity and instead will live on as not only a great drinking song, but listed in rock and roll's top 500 songs.

So we are saved from a song whose lyrics are forgettable and chorus won't stop going around in your head no matter how much you drink.  L-o-u-i-e    L-o-u-i-e  ohhhhhhh nooooooo me gotta go.

Move Over.....

Move over donuts, cupcakes, apple pies, ice cream and Snickers (well....maybe not Snickers) today is

There is nothing like the smell of cookies baking in the oven and chocolate chip cookies are just about the best ever.
Did you know that the original recipe for chocolate chip cookies was kinda created by accident?  Yep, the story goes that the lady cook person (Ruth Graves Wakefield of the Toll House Inn in the town of Whitman, Massachusetts) was baking chocolate cookies and looking for a short cut.  So she threw in chunks of semi sweet chocolate into the dough hoping they would melt as they cooked.  Of course they only melted a little, which turned out to be a good thing, Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies were born and the rest is history.  

And the wonderful lady cook person (Ruth Graves Wakefield of the Toll House Inn in the town of Whitman, Massachusetts) eventually sold her recipe to Nestle for a life time supply of chocolate.  I'm thinking that was a pretty good deal.

Find a recipe, make a cookie, save the Snickers for tomorrow.

And you thought it was going to be pictures of girls in bikinis....well here is a real shocker....that edition only comes out once a year.  The other eleven months there are other issues and lots of other sports going on.

All pictures in this post came from Sports Illustrated.
I think there might be articles there too, I don't make any promises about girls in bikinis.

Everybody has taken or seen them.  Photobombs happen when a reasonably ordinary picture gets taken and it turns out that something "interesting" is occurring in the background, OR something intrudes in the foreground.

For instance:



 No, I didn't take any of these photos, but I did find most of them humorous.

I can't promise that no PhotoShop manipulation has happened AND some of the photobombs are of animals doing what comes natural, please don't take offense.  Also, if you go looking on the web for other photobombs be aware that there are some risque' photos out there, don't say I didn't warn you.

What is at the center of your Universe?

 So much fun!
Did you even know these terms for measurement existed?  Really!
Planck Length

I am beginning to think that the world doesn't revolve around me, no wonder I can't find that bone I buried out in the back yard.

Prehistoric Art

I have always thought that an artistic person is going to find a way to express their creativity regardless of their occupation.

Well, how about if you were a caveman?  I mean it was really hard to make a living back then.  Heck it was really hard to just live back then.

This amazing art can be found in a cave and has been dated back to thirty thousand years ago.  That is way before any of the artists I know.

Not only that, but these paintings have shading and perspective which even in modern times takes talent.

Go here and take a tour, you'll be glad you did.
