No Humor: “Ad” in my blog!

Posted on

I come on here, after a rest and I find ads that I did not okay on my blog…not humorous! I did not get an e-mail or notice of any kind about putting ads in my blog. What adds to this pet peeve is my annoyance that the ad(s) are about “Brain training games”!! Is someone trying to tell me something here?? (scrunching nose!) For the record, I do not want ADS on my blog unless I get a kick back from them and personally okay them! :)Stink eye for those who put ads on my blog without my approval!

Anyone with knowledge of how to remove these ads or know who to contact about it I would be much appreciated.

Just an FYI on my Husband; he is off his blood pressure and triglycerides meds. Although, his blood pressure is great, his tri’s are still high; it was found that the tri meds were the reason for the kidney failure. The DR. is monitoring him closely which is reassuring.

Also, I am already writing my lists for camping (RV) season. 🙂 I can’t wait!

Yumsterlicious Recipes: Update

I have updated the Yumsterlicious Recipe page; I know, finally, huh? Since the holidays are coming, I thought I should  add some of our family favorites and some are real old family recipes. There are all types of recipes (slow cooker, main course, side dishes, salads, dips, desserts, and etc) for at home or while RVing. I will try to add new recipes weekly.  So keep checking back, okay?

With the thought of snow (yes, I am still thinking of snow), I am  getting in the ho-ho holiday spirit. Geesh, when are they going to start playing Christmas music on the radio?

Anywho…

I will try to add some desserts, cookies, and such soon. Hey, if you have any good Holiday recipes to share, that would be fantastic!

Humor: “What if” of the Day…While Camping

Everyone has a “what if” rolling around in their head every once in a while. For me, it is a daily occurrence and usually humorous in nature.

Can you imagine the “what if” that plunked out of my head today? No? Well, let me introduce you to my “what if” of the day.

What if…you are camping at an amazing camp site (right next to the lake) and amazingly there is no one else around; it is all yours. How AMAZING huh? 🙂

Then, the unthinkable happens. In comes a caravan of National Lampooners! Don’t get me wrong, I love yackin up a storm with my campin neighbors. BUT, there comes a time when a game plan is needed for that unruly crowd. I am wondering if my wacky sense of humor would make any unwanted camping neighbor run for the hills; I am thinking of using this plan for the next time we go camping.

You see, I am a long time soap opera watcher, so my plan is related to that. Here is the big “WHAT IF”; what if you take on some of your favorite soap actors persona’s or mannerism while camping.

John Black’s (Days of Our Lives)serious face with twitching eyebrow 

The  actors that talk out-loud when they are alone; looking to the sky, wringing your hands,”I wonder if my husband took his medicine, to stop his anger episodes, before he went target shooting.”

Have climactic music play after each conversation with the neighbors and your own group.

Always have a long pause before answering a question, with a Jack Black face or say “we will be right back after this commercial” and then walk away.

I am not sure that it would make them leave, however, it would be a hoot see how they respond. What soap opera mannerism do you think would be hilarious in real life and especially when camping?

Camping: Our Dog Has Issues

Like many others, our dog is a big part of our family and we love him dearly. HOWEVER, he is an old grumpy hard of hearing farting k-9 and gets his way most of the time, just to keep the peace. Boone, an Australian Shepard loves to go camping with us in our RV, even with his “issues”.

In this instance, humor is in the eye of the beholder; although, no one at the time thinks this is humorous one bit and especially Boone. You see, Boone has his own pillow that we HAVE to take with us, when we go camping. He has to get that pillow fluffed and in just the right place in the RV before he will settle down and finally lay his head on his pillow. Of course, he is ALWAYS in the way; we try to step around him which isn’t easy in a motorhome. So, what does Boone say when he is annoyed at our attempt to move around him or really when he is annoyed at anything? “RUBBA RUBBA RUBBA!”, meaning “I am old and grumpy…DEAL WITH IT!”

Let me enlighten you with how we get our old grumpy hard of hearing farting k-9 up into the RV. Okay, I put Boone on a long leash, walk him to the open door of the motorhome, I walk up the steps, turn around and look at him, and talk in my sweetest  voice I can think of and say, ” Come on Boony”(me smiling, with no teeth showing, as a dog thinks that is me growling at him) “Good boy Boone! Lets go for a ride!” …did I mention he is hard of hearing and almost deaf. Though, that doesn’t seem to stop any of us from talking to him, as we think our dog is so smart he can read lips.

He looks up at me, looks at the first step which is the metal one, that he won’t step on and he growls. Well more like a moaning growl…meaning, “Not this crap again!” He passes the first step to the second step(front feet only) and slides down to the first step (fart). By this time he has told us, ” you better come up with a better plan than this! RUBBA RUBBA RUBBA!”

Out of frustration and me having to go potty, I end up tying the leash to the handle by the door, leave the door open and I walk away. “RUBBA RUBBA RUBBA! Fine! I will do it myself!” he bellows after every attempt, then finally up he comes, fart, fluff fluff, fart, and plops on his pillow.

Boone and His Pillow

This year I think a handicap ramp will help stop the time used up “RUBBA RUBBA RUBBAing it!” don’t you?

My Humor: New Gravatar -What’s Wrong With This Picture?

You will find my humor to be wishy washy at times and at other times your drink will come shootin out your nose. Nonetheless, my new gravatar cracks me up and I hope you enjoy it! Well, not really, I don’t care if you think it isn’t funny or you don’t enjoy it; I like it, because my mind goes where others dare not tread. Ha ha! 😀

I took this picture of a sign on  Mothers day two years ago at Deception Pass in Washington State. Okay, yes I know it is a serious matter to NOT fall off a cliff and to stay on the trail. BUT is it any wonder why this guy fell off the cliff?

HE HAS NO FEET!!!

HA HA HA HA ooooo SNORT! HA HA HA HA!!

Pet Peeve: Pulling Out in Front of an RV

We are driving down the road in our RV (motorhome) minding our own business, eating  our hostess raspberry filled powdered donuts, which is a  long-established tradition for any of our road trips, with me humming Christmas music 🙂 and some dweeb pulls out in front of us; if my husband was telling the story you would replace the word dweeb with numb nuts.

Now there is powdered donuts, coffee, juice, binoculars, maps, cell phones, and an old grumpy hard of hearing farting dog flying all over the place; thank you very much…NOT! I don’t have many pet peeves other than the QUIT TALKING/TEXTING ON THE PHONE WHILE DRIVING pet peeve , but the pulling out in front of an RV is one of the ” God almighty, your lucky Auntie RV doesn’t know who you are, cuz if I did, I’d be callin your mother” biggest pet peeves I have!!

Seriously dweebs and dweebettes of the world, do you not understand when there is a big honkin RV coming down the road, minding their own business  (going the speed limit) and you pull out in front of them their life flashes before their eyes?!  I wonder if you realize how close YOU are to having an RV plow you down; trying to stop or slow down a “big honkin RV is not the same as trying to stop or slow down a car!

What is one of your pet peeve while driving?

Camping: Breathtaking View of the Stars

Posted on

Have you ever been camping and observed the night sky encompassed with millions of stars, with no urban lights in sight?  As I pondered this most breathtaking view of the stars, while peeing in a bucket, I thought…this is the life!

Roughing it in a tent , with no amenities, can bring unexpected blessings.

Sweet Mercy…Enjoy Life!
