MENTAL NOTE

"Though we cannot make our sun stand still, yet we will make him run."
Blue, resist the urge to use facebook. You can do it. Good luck.
Cats and dogs can be friends. So can cowboys and indians. So can we.
Why try to be the best when there's no hierarchy in heaven?

The L-word?

Love is being told that you're an idiot 
and you say, "Yes, that is true." 
Love is when you run out of tea,
then a bad boy sends you some and you say, "Thank you." 
Love is being serious when you know your words
would crush her if you spoke your wicked mind. 
Love is not knowing who you're talking to
and still allowing them a place in your heart. 
Love is beautiful. 
Love is ugly. 
Love is less important than money unless you're a romantic
or a realist with a sense of humor. 
Love is you unless you don't like me. 
Love makes me cry.
Smile...
I feel so romantic today.

But it didn't always use to be that way. Once upon a time...

  1. lol yeah we agree, less important than money. Without that you can end up loving in a ditch. Germy and it might itch. A ticket you say? The cat doesn't love any to want them to join him at the bora bay. Well maybe just Pat because he feeds us and all of that lol going all loving at your zoo. Are you missing the humpers humping coming due?

    1. Loving in a ditch...
      Heck ain't that a witch?
      You may end up need a stitch
      Unless, like you, you're rich
      The humpers, you say?
      I sent them your way
      You will hear them across the bay
      Now, that is NOT okay

    2. Rich as can be
      So no ditch for me

      With the humpers I can go into porn
      Send them my way
      And I'll make them hump for pay

    4. Furry sextube would be a scare
      They would spread too much hair

  5. I hate when the coach puts me on the bench. It's a crime to be out of the game.

    9. Wait! All of these cutesy, melancholy pictures of you began to appear once you'd finished nailing the neighbors. Is there something we need to know?

      Do you now insulate yourself from the world? Are you someone that we used to know? (Excuse me, I'm insane from the ice accumulation in my yard. I need to be free.)

    10. I don't recall nailing my neighbors... Except to the wall.... in my dreams... How come there is so much ice in your garden? Surely your radiance should melt it instantly. Or are you so cool that it is there to stay?

  13. When poverty walks in the door
    Love flies out the window
    My Grandmother schooled me in the right direction. I laugh when a gal thinks it's romantic to get just one rose from a fella. "Honey, it's because they can't afford the other eleven."
    Don't talk romance to a child of the depression. Talk creature comforts first and after you've thanked the host, be it a sugar daddy, a gracious lover or Mom and Dad and your belly's full of fine food, it's easy to think of romance. Could Elizabeth Barrett have had time to sit around and write her sonnets without the comforts of Papa and the Browning guy. It would have been more like Liza Doolittle, freezing her butt off, selling flowers on the street and dreaming of enough coal to keep a room warm. But what do I know.

    But I do know that during a depression, people drink more booze and spend their last dime on the movies. It's called escape.

    I like your "love is's." A very big ring of truth in it.

  15. I love love in all of its beautiful and messy moments. I'd actually take the love over money any day. I'm one who falls hard and fast in love, and it runs really deep. Love brings joy, passion and excitement, but also grief and desperation, and has caused me to do wicked things on occasion. I wouldn't trade any of it for money. Life's too short not to experience the things you get from love.

    Hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day, Blue! ♥

    4. No, I don't think money = love necessarily. Jason and I have been dirt broke, but that never had an impact on our love. I have a profound love for my children that no amount of money could shake. Same as my niece and nephew. Then again, I would spend any amount of money to keep them safe and ensure their happiness, so I guess money could come into play there.

      Dezzy, I never told you that the basement was going to be my new Red Room of Pain. I swear I'm going to knock those penguins out for sharing my secrets ;)
